Unity to do what? Black power for what? Group economics for what? In the light of this you tube soap opera we can see the internal conflict that black people suffer from. We don’t have a national Identity, we don’t know what our economic structure should look like. We pattern ourselves after American and British colonial concepts. We develop our culture from Jewish and Arab Imperialist dogma. In each case, we end up hating and exploiting ourselves just as the fore mentioned groups hated and exploited us.
With all the history that has been proclaimed over the last 10 years, we continue to repeat the mistakes of the past. Booker T Washington vrs W.E.B. Dubois, Dubois vrs Garvey…etc. This fight for who will be the Black leader has raged for decades. Now we need to understand that we don’t need one leader, but leadership in different area’s of Nation Building.
In the conscious community many individuals are battling for limited resources, in this case the resource is social status. This is common among all ethnic groups or cultures. Black people have limited resources, and with limited resources comes a mad scramble for the control of those resources. This is an evolutionary processes among all life forms, from the micro level to the societal level. What exacerbates this particular problem is that there is no benefit to the people in the end. It is an exercise in futility, pointless and counter revolutionary.
Amos Wilson explains the power potential in this manner;
“We may infer from Coleman’s exposition that a group’s power potential or actuality may be remarkably enhanced or gravely weakened by enhancing or impairing the abilities and characteristics of its individual members. Where the personal qualifications and qualities of its individual members are too scarce or inadequate; where they may suffer conflicting needs, (i.e., needs which pull them in opposing directions); where their emotional conflicts and tensions cause debilitation irritations among them leading to their inability to objectively consider their problems as well as distracting their attention from the tasks at hand, the group may fail to achieve its goals or may reach inadequate or unsatisfactory resolutions of its problems.”

In this case, the people lose by promoting individuals who promote themselves above the collective. This causes problems within the social structure. The masses of Black people will depend on the entertainment aspects of the movement, while trusting in their enemies to provide the goods and services needed for life essentials.
Amos Wilson also notes;
“Modern mass urban society-with its weakened family, community, religion, and social group ties-may increase the individual’s sense of powerlessness. In the absence of meaningful social interaction, people search for synthetic ties to replace the ones lost in the process of modernization. They become other directed-that I, decreasingly reliant on their own consciences and increasingly dependent upon other people for their ideas and actions. The other-directed person is easily manipulated by the mass media, by demagogic leaders, and by mass political movements.”
Blueprint for Black power.
The definition of a psychosis; a severe mental disorder in which thought and emotions are so impaired that contact is lost with external reality.
The conscious community is a sub-culture of the greater African American community. What is taking place within it is also occurring in the greater culture. “WE DON’T HAVE A GRASP OF COLLECTIVE REALITY.” Reality should teach us that we need to turn away from entertainment, and focus on education. However, we choose to escape reality, and bask in the sea of emotional tv, radio and you tube personalities.
The quintessential issue for Black people is empowerment. Do we have the power to do what we say we are going to do? The answer is no, and we know this. We know that education is important, yet we are helpless in revolutionizing the educational system for Black America, why? Well, we are handcuffed through our minds.
Amos Wilson explains it;
“Psychic Violence- The most powerful obstacle against the liberation of Africkan peoples from White domination and exploitation is not the ability of Whites to use superior military or police firepower or their threat to use it against Africkan insurgency, but is their ability to engage in unrelenting psychopolitical violence against the collective Afrikan psyche. It is the White monopoly on psychic violence and their devastatingly ingenious use of it against the minds of Afrikan peoples which represent the greatest threat to Afrikan survival.”
Blueprint for Black Power
We, the people, the Black masses have to make a conscientious change in the way we educate ourselves and change what we consider entertainment. By the way, there is no such thing as edutainment, it is an illusion.
