Miseducation Society – the Deterioration of Urban culture

Miseducation – Suppression of our history

overcoming the miseducationMiseducation of society, the promulgation of White supremacist concepts, and the resulting internalization of negative stereotypes has a pernicious effect on low to moderate income African American communities.  At the root of this miseducation is a distorted presentation of history that glorifies European imperialism, suppresses the achievements of African Americans and undermines those achievements of African civilizations that predate European colonization.  For more information on ancient African civilizations click http://kemetcivilization.com/.  Make yourself conscious of educational narratives that distorts, misrepresent, and understate the accomplishments of people of African descent.  When history suppresses contributions from people of African descent while trivializing the impact of centuries of racial oppression, society is indoctrinated  with the concept that African Americans are inherently subordinate.  This causes a visceral aversion, by both African Americans and Whites, to intercultural communication.  The most pernicious effect is the resulting lack of access that African Americans have to opportunities.

Miseducation and the cycle of blight

When some of our people embrace the N word, they leave themselves susceptible to the influence of white supremacy.  The names Negro, Colored Folks, Black folks, and Ethiopians were forced on our ancestors as slave names given by slave masters.  According to the English language, all of those names would be considered inferior or negative.  Negro (Niger – Black water), Ethiopian  (A nation divided), Colored (something stained or varnished [impure]), Black (Death, Evil).  Nigga is just a derivative of the words Negro or nigger.  The embrace of this word is a subconscious embrace of all of the negative attributes that go along with it.  Think about the conditions in some of our communities.  Think of the negative mind-frame that pervades some of our cultures.  By the way we have more than one culture, but we have succumbed to the psychology – Ethiopia (a nation divided).  That is one reason there is antipathy between various economic and educational classes of African Americans.

In low income communities, there is a dearth of financially successful people whose financial success is related to academic achievement.  This causes many young people to devalue education.  Without tangible examples of how education is important to future success, young people are more likely to abandon it.  This begins a cycle of quitting that is antithetical to success.  Eventually, people who develop a habit of quitting, begin to make excuses for failure while they develop attitudes of victimization and defeatism.  These attitudes, when permeated throughout a community, perpetuate a cycle of blight.

Miseducation of society and violence

Violence, often a byproduct of frustration, resentment and miseducation, is given sensationalized coverage by the mass media.  This is particularly true in cities like Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, and St. Louis.  When cities are bombarded with media coverage that focus on violence, the youth from those cities have a tendency to take pride in embracing violence as a part of their identity.  When they are influenced by machismo, it becomes more important for them to maintain a persona of toughness than to reject self-destructive tendencies.  In some cultures, social conditions have devolved to the point where young people completely lose confidence in the integrity of the system, believe that setting goals is pointless, and have doubts whether they will live to see thirty.  From this belief system, an existential and pervasive state of nihilism emerges.  Members of the culture begin to devalue life, self, and surroundings.  This mindset is the catalyst for an epidemic of violence.  To see more about combating violence click the following link : https://realinfo2action.com/combating-violence

Miseducation of society and Nihilism

When characteristics of nihilism are hardwired into our culture, the only solution is rewiring the cultural mindset.  This begins with placing a high value on principles such as integrity, commitment, patience, compassion, and excellence.  An effective strategy for saving our communities requires us to embrace, practice and make these virtuous principles a part of our character. We should use these principles as measures of self-worth instead of continuing to practice the materialist ideology that has reduced us to pawns in a socioeconomic chess game.  Spreading cultural values that emphasize principles will prepare us to be successful and put our communities in a position to flourish.  A principle-centered person can more easily shake off thoughts of victimization and defeatism.  Empowered by a spirit of confidence,  principle-centered people working together can overcome miseducation and revitalize our communities.
