Black children: A philosophy of victimization?

“Black people are told that white people are the cause of just about everything that is wrong with them…They are told that they are victims.  And in fact, they are victims, but willing victims.  They are not victims of white people.  They are victims of a philosophy of victimization.  The messages they are getting about their victimization are destroying them.  They are taught to see themselves as vitcims, as powerless pawns in the  white man’s racist scheme.  As long as they think they are powerless victims, that is all the will ever be.  Powerless people who accept they powerlessness as permanent have no desire to become educated.” –William Jenkins, Understanding and Educating African-American children.”

  1. We have the power within us to solve any problem that impacts our entire race. Stop being the victim. Become victorious and take care of our own. We become what we believe we are!
