From the Melanated Man:
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
One of the most well known verses in the Bible canon.
And one of the truest!
It says “train up a child in the way he SHOULD go”; the problem is that many of us black-melanated folks don’t know the way he (or she) should GO. That verse works both ways as well.
We have been teaching our kids the way of the Massa when it comes to eating, education, gender roles, relationships, ENTERTAINMENT, basic day-to-day living…you name it. Black-melanated people have properly been FUCKED over by this training for hundreds of years and we DAMN sure have not “departed from it.”
It has worked to PERFECTION! I told you the Bible is valid in the proper context.
We’re hooked. It basically comes down to HABITS.
WE MUST LEARN (RE-LEARN!) HABITS THAT ARE BENEFICIAL TO OUR PROSPERITY!!!
By now we should understand what those HABITS are; they have been BEATEN into our skulls by many, many teachers, preachers (the honest ones!), and leaders of the past and present!
If you’re fuzzy on it, check out my reading list for starters.
Anyone else have suggestions of reading material on BLACK LIBERATION or REAL BLACK HISTORY, let me know. I need to add to my list, and catch up on some reading also!!!
Peace and Love to my melanated family,
The Melanated Man
