Blacks are empowered by unification, not integration

By Kevin Palmer Evans

      Because the African American mind has been whitewashed there is no desire to unify and rise from the bottom. John Henrik Clarke said, “To control a people you must first control what they think about themselves and how they regard their history and culture. And when your conqueror makes you ashamed of your culture and your history, he needs no prison walls and no chains to hold you.”

Instead, Blacks desire integration over unification. Stokely Carmichael said, “This country has been feeding [Blacks] a “thalidomide drug of integration.” To whites, integration means, “You do what I tell you to do and then we’ll let you sit at the table with us.” Naturally, the house Negro agrees to sellout and sits at the conqueror’s table. They are put forth as leaders to keep Blacks docile, pacified, in awe of whites, and divided.

Fortunately, most Blacks are not sellouts and agree with Carmichael who said, “We have taken all the myths of this country and we’ve found them to be nothing but downright lies. This country told us that if we worked hard we would succeed, and if that were true we would own this country lock, stock, and barrel. It is we who have picked the cotton. It is we who are in the kitchens of liberal white people. It is we who are the janitors. It is we who sweep your college floors. Yes, it is we who are the hardest workers and the lowest paid.”

Indeed, 50 years after the 1968 Poor People’s Campaign, Blacks are still at the bottom. Even when jobs are available, workers are paid so little that they can still be left in poverty. According to the Economic Policy Institute, “In 2017, 8.6 percent of white workers and 14.3 percent of Blacks workers were paid poverty wages.”

Carmichael said, “Poverty is well calculated in this country, and the reason why the poverty programs won’t work is because the calculators of poverty are administering it.”
