SOLVETHESE AND YOU WILL HAVE SOLVED THE PROBLEM OF BLACK ONBLACK VIOLENCE"RBG STOP THE VIOLENCE MOVEMENT POSTER ARTIn my way of thinking about black on black violence from my studies andpersonal experiences it is an effect / consequence rather than a cause /primary issue. We live in the citadel culture of violence. There should be nodenial that from its inception America has been a country that glorifies warsand violence in the name of "peace". She has been at war against Afrikan /Black people from the time they brought us here against our will to date ( amost violent process). Every year in its history America has been at war and
  3. 3. RBG STOP THE VIOLENCE LESSON Page 3imposing violence in one form or another against one or more of its"adversaries". Black people were/are reared and breed in a culture of whitemob violence, lynching, slavery, suffering and death. The history of violenceagainst Afrikans in Amerikkka is so horrific as to be almost beyond belief.Socio-structural and institutional violence (vertical violence) begetsinterpersonal and intrapersonal violence (horizontal violence).Thus, the problem of black on black violence isa problem of cultural mis -orientation, self-alienation and self-hatred. What we are seeingmanifest as black on black violence is anemulation of the cultural ways of ouroppressor. We have internalized his ways. Thisis called intropression: When the oppressedare subject to oppression as long as us weinternalize the oppressor and thus do toourselves what the oppressor once did to us.When a Black man kills another Black man hessaying in his mind "Im gon kill you nigga" andin actuality hes killing himself who he hates somuch because he was train to doso...CULTURAL MIS-ORIENTATION LEADS TOSELF HATRED.Superimpose this on the facts of unprecedented unemployment rates in ourcommunities, miseducation and the dope game / government elementfacilitated narcotization of our communities (CIA) , mass media propagandathat feeds us a study diet of consumerism, materialism and individualism;breeding jealousy, envy and haterism and you have all the ingredients forself destruction.That being said, for those of us that are sufferingfrom passivist psycho -pathology, please keep inmind that much of the life process is necessarily aviolent experience, eg. childbirth, securing the meatthat most of us eat and even the hot food you put inyour mouth are all violent acts. My point here is thatmaybe the solution to black on black violence inamerikkka is RBG Luv. That is to say, properknowledge and cultural orientation will inform usthat we need to get RBGed Up and fight against thecauses to prevent the effect. In doing this however,the first government we must overthrow is the government of our owncorrupt minds. Something RBG Street Scholars Think Tank is about helpingus do.

  6. 6. RBG STOP THE VIOLENCE LESSON Page 6Here we are, in 2006, countless articles & news reports later, and ourprecious communities are still in a state of distress. It appears that theproblem of black on black crime doesnt seem to be improving, but rathersteadily getting worse by the day. But whats really going on?Its apparent to thisobservant eye that moreoften than not were actingout the way wereexpected to act -- that is,fulfiling a role in societythat has been decidedupon and encouraged bypeople other than us. Allwe need to do is look atthe television or listen tothe radio to experience thesobering statistics or theself-hating bullshit thatnow passes as blackentertainment on theevidently racist major networks to confirm this fact. Thuggishness andgangsterism, misogyny, brutality and ignorance have become synonymouswith black life in the eyes of many, both inside and outside of ourcommunities, as a result of both our actions and of corporate Amerikkkassanctioning and glorification of negative imagery and behavior. Our worstattributes are always awarded, paraded and celebrated by those whose job itis to keep us in a state of distress. Harsh, you say? Hardly. Fear of non-whites is big business in Amerikkka, and shows like COPS and virtually anynews broadcast aid in the manifestation of that fear and the acceptance ofits remedies - increased police presence, new prison construction and thepassage of tougher laws. Besides, do you think black life really matters tothem? That they care if we kill each other off?Understand that our focus and priorities need to change, and that nobodycan be relied upon to care about us but us. This should be obvious to all ofus by now. Things that many of us seem too often to be concerned with(game, pimpin, the life, etc.) are of little importance to others. So let mesay it for the record - fuck game. Do you think the bank, the phonecompany or a prospective employer care about game? Care about pimpin?Life goes on without it. And while game may make you cute in the eyes ofshallow folks, nowadays what you know is more important than how youlook or act. Contrary to popular belief, nigga-slick is out of fashion. Only
  7. 7. RBG STOP THE VIOLENCE LESSON Page 7through education and hard work will we move beyond simply surviving tosuccess.But back to the point. While the violence we see and hear on TV, films, andin black music remains a contributing factor that keeps us on our self-destructive path, it is by no means the sole reason. Many of us have a pent-up rage that easily triggers aggression -- aggression that often results froma combustible blend of cultural and racial baggage that many of us carry.What we need to do now is break out of the mold of acting out in waysexpected of us. Angry black men without focus arent a threat to anyone butthemselves, and have become the targets of ridicule by those outside of ourcommunities. Again, who cares if we kill each other off? We must care.It can be argued that black life is viewed by many as being worthless, and itshould come as no surprise that many studies have confirmed that thepunishment blacks receive when the victims of violent crime are white is farmore severe than if the victims are black. Add to this the lack of opportunity,sense of deprivation, powerlessness and alienation that many of usexperience since birth and the picture becomes all-too-clear -- that society isnot set up for our benefit. We have to make our own way, and in order toget there we must first respect ourselves and each other. Easier said thandone, you say? Why? Everything is easier when we get along, especiallysince it appears that many others dont want us to. The name of the gamenow is to be focused. Stay focused on not only the present, but on yourfuture too. How many young folks today cant envision themselves olderthan 25? How many plan for the future at all?The devaluation of black life by systematic racism and the media hasencouraged many of us to have disrespect for life and to act out ouraggressions onto others -- often with the victims being women and otherblack males. When this happens, we all lose.And what about gangs and drugs? The introduction of crack cocaine by theCIA into our communities during the 1980s made black youth gangs biggerand more dangerous than they had ever been before. The illicit profits ofdrug trafficking provided, and continues to provide, vicious incentives forthose of us without direction, immediate opportunity or hope to murderourselves. In fact, much of the recent escalation in the murder rates can bedirectly traced to busted drug deals, competition over markets, disputesover turf and bruised egos.So what must we do? We must take responsibility, first and foremost, forboth ourselves as individuals and as a collective. We must understand thatour brothers and sisters are not our enemies. Again, we have no one to look
  8. 8. RBG STOP THE VIOLENCE LESSON Page 8out for us but us. When you see wrong, speak on it. Intervene. Reach out toyour friends and family if they are at risk, and be receptive to other peoplespoints of view if you are feeling like violence is your only alternative. Youmight just save your life or the life of someone you know.Post-Script Lessons/ Re-EnforcementDr. Amos Wilson On CultureDPZ: The HoodVIEW THE VIDEOVIEW THE VIDEO
