Our “BLACK” leaders are not our leaders they are our betrayers just like those that sold us to the Europeans for 400 years, for decades our BLACK leaders have encouraged and contributed to our downfall by their incessant use of the label BLACK to describe us and themselves. Black just like Nigger, negro and colored before it is a derogatory label placed on us by those that imprisoned us for 400 years.
“Word, Sound and Power” is a Rastafarian concept that affirms the profound subconscious power of words. The subconscious power of our words they claim is lost upon this distracted generation. We speak forth words unthinkingly. Too often we speak words (into the ears of our children and loved ones) without really knowing what is going on beneath the surface of our chatter and noise. There is a profound subconscious (as well as conscious) effect upon our minds and spirits due to the words we hear and speak.
Our oppressors learned a long time ago about the power of sound (frequency) words and vibrations and their immense power from their invasions of ancient civilizations. While we walk about blindly repeating “buzz” words we hear like parrots. Mainstream media paints a dystopian future due to the “machine” of A.I. taking over our social space. Yet, we (like A.I.) simply regurgitate our “programming language” all the time. We do not think about, truly hear, or meditate upon the meaning of the sounds of the words we speak. We miss this fundamental principle of Frequency “Word, Sound and Power’
Rastafarians have used language for decades as a reverse weapon of defense against the systematic oppression they received from the Jamaican authorities and police. They saw into the deeper meanings of the concepts and word pictures convened by the “sounds” of the oppressor’s language. For example, the word “Oppressor.” When spoken out loud in Jamaica, sounds like “Uh-Pressor,” or “UP-resser.” They reasoned that the actual effect of oppression is not “Up,” it is “down.” Hence, they refer to “oppressors” as “DOWN-pressers.” another example is the word “Appreciate” to appreciate is to show love however the word Appreciate clearly contains the word “hate” so Rastas use the term “apprecilove” this is more accurate. One of the most profound and most mind-blowing examples is the water that surrounds Jamaica “the Caribbean Sea” “They Carry We Beyond The Sea” these examples remove the cloak of deceit inherent in the actual pronunciation of the English word.
We as a people are fully aware of the many many negative connotations connected to the word Black from black sheep to blackmail to blackball, dark, dusky; sooty, inky; sable, ebony.dirty, dingy, sad, depressing, somber, doleful, mournful, funeral. disastrous, calamitous. sinful, inhuman, fiendish, devilish, infernal, monstrous; atrocious, horrible; nefarious, treacherous, traitorous, villainous.
Black is used orthophemistically but not euphemistically; it more often has dysphemistic connotations than other colors. It is often connected to darkness (the night), death, decay, and evil deeds. Black has often been used dysphemistically of human skin color, though it can be orthophemistic.
Black in mainstream media is the color for evil, or at least the antagonists, to wear. As we grew up we were taught in many stories, the villains will wear black clothing, in contrast to the colors worn by neutral and good characters (which will be at least moderately lighter).
This is because mainstream media, TV, and films have associated black as the color of darkness, decay, and death. Thus even though wearing black doesn’t make someone evil, being evil makes it more than likely one is going to wear black.
It doesn’t matter if it’s all the villains, the Big Bad and a few others, or just a group of Mooks that appear for a few episodes, if they wear a large amount of black (even just one noticeable part of their clothing), you know it’s this trope. This is also why black is a common color for an Evil Costume Switch.
Heck, some Eviler Than Thou villains might wear black when the “lesser” evils don’t.
From an early age nursery, rhymes and cartoons perpetuate that black is more aggressive and associated with evil, also contamination, and sickness and white is good and pure and clean These associations give people an instinctive cue that black is dominant, and somebody you don’t want to mess with.
This trope very often involves a good chunk of Color-Coded for Your Convenience — whereas villains are dressed in black, heroes or innocent characters will wear white or light and bright colors.
Now since some think Evil Is Cool, then black can also become a cool color, but those don’t cover this trope, nor does this trope come into play if the heroes also wear black. This can come into play with a Villain Protagonist though.
When you tell your children that they are black and they go out into the world into school and watch TV all they see is negativity connected to this word they labeled us black while in fact, we are closer to golden brown, gold is one of the most precious metals on this earth and coincidently many millions of us were taken from Africas Gold Coast
The first European explorers to arrive at the coast were the Portuguese in 1471. They encountered a variety of African kingdoms, some of which controlled substantial deposits of gold in the soil. In 1483, the Portuguese came to the continent for increased trade. They built the Castle of Elmina, The slave trade was the principal exchange and a major part of the economy for many centuries. In this period, European nations began to explore and colonize the Americas. Soon the Portuguese and Spanish began to export African slaves to the Caribbean, and North and South America. The Dutch and British also entered the slave trade, at first supplying slaves to markets in the Caribbean and on the Caribbean coast of South America.
And just like our forefathers sold us out in ancient times our so-called ‘leaders” continue to do so in modern times by celebrating and cultivating this black label from the Black Panther Party that spawned the crips and bloods Americas biggest gangs to today’s Black Lives Matter movement funded by white liberals that advocate black cowardice by the symbolic gesture of “taking the knee” made famous by mix breed Colin Kaepernick (sic) aka the most influential black sportsman of modern times yet another reason we should disregard the term black.
The most influential leader of modern times is Marcus Mosiah Garvey Brother Marcus described himself as a Negro yes another label given to us but unlike black only true dark-skinned people of dark-skinned parentage can be a negro.
The greatest ever time in our history was when we were labeled as Niggers and Negros. When were were Niggers and Negros we were true revolutionaries, freedom fighters, inventors and pioneers when were labeled as Niggers and Negros we were united. Tulsa the place they label Black wall street was not occupied by Blacks in 1921 we wre still very much Niggers and Negros not black.
Now in 2021 we are blacks we are best known for singing, dancing, fashion and playing sport. Now we are blacks we are millionaires some even billionaires but for every black person who is a millionaire or a billionaire I can guarantee you that a white person has earned twice as much off their talents. We are sports from the NBA to the Premier League but we dont own the sports we are music but we do no own any significant part of sports
Our oppressors freely use and love the label black because it allows them to blanket use the term. To our oppressors to be considered black you do not even have to have half of one’s ancestry must to be Negro. One-fourth will do even, or one-eighth, or less they claim that a black is any person with any known negro ancestry. This definition reflects the long experience with slavery and later with Jim Crow segregation. In the South it became known as the “one-drop rule,” meaning that a single drop of “black blood” makes a person a black. It is also known as the “one black ancestor rule,” some courts have called it the “traceable amount rule,” and anthropologists call it the “hypo-descent rule,” meaning that racially mixed persons are assigned the status of the subordinate group. This definition emerged from the American South to become the nation’s definition, generally accepted by whites and blacks. Blacks had no other choice. As we shall see, this American cultural definition of blacks is taken for granted as readily by judges, affirmative action officers, and black protesters as it is by Ku Klux Klansmen(sic).
The one drop rule suits our oppressors and white racist mainstream media because it means that they can whitewash us and ridiculed us by elevating sons and daughters of white mothers as “black leaders” like Colin Kaepernick and Akala in the UK while muting the true voices.
We are dark skinned not BLACK those sons and daughters are light Skinned.
