I am seeking to know other intelligent blacks

"Education, the Key to Prosperity."











When are, we, as a people, going to start
working with our youth to eliminate the lies that
are fed to them by the media that prevent them
from achieving to their fullest potential? When are
we, going to stand up and fight the idea, pervasive
in our youth, that if you are excelling in school, in
advanced classes and dominating (academically)
you classmates, you are “acting white”. This idea is
absurd! Throughout history, we have pushed
education when it was forbidden upon pain of
death! Even during Jim Crow, we created over 150
colleges to serves our children when the mainstream
ones refused to let us in. When mainstream
businesses refused our money, we became
entrepreneurs and set up thriving districts such as
Little Hayti in Durham, North Carolina and Black
Wall Street in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This all happened,
because we educated ourselves, either formally or
informally!!



Now, after our people fought to open doors to
the mainstream of American intellectual life, a
thief come in the night to steal the victory and
perseverance from our kids; the idea that academic
excellence is “acting white”, our ridicule of our
brothers and sisters who strive for educational and
professional excellence. As they go forward in their
academic accomplishments, we have Black idiots
taunting them with the label “acting white.” Do
not confuse professionalism or academic excellence
with “acting white.” One has nothing in the world
to do with the other. In fact, those Black folks who
do not encourage nor support their fellow Black
students or Black businesses are actually the ones
“acting white.” They also act white when they do
not sound their objections or defend against other
races that denigrate their Black brothers & sisters,
or when they mistreat their own Black people with
the same lies, injustice and incorrectness as white
supremacist do. Those who are accusing other of
“Acting white,” are simply being niggerish, or, put
a better way “stupid”, themselves!











I issue a challenge to everyone! Check you
state’s, your individual district’s, your child’s
school’s status on proficiency tests. You will see an
great gap in the performance of black and white
students. Check the ACT, SAT, AP, and other tests.
With affirmative action about to go off into history
and the standards rising, we must reaffirm our
intellectual tradition. Start reading (newspaper,
books, magazines, etc., use the public library, etc.).
As a special treat, give your kids gifts certificates for
bookstores. Take your children to museums,
galleries, parks, etc. We must challenge the idea
promulgated through BET and throughout history
that all we do is play sports and rap!!
