Survivors Village to hold community rally in St. Bernard Community to educate President Obama

 

Survivors Village to hold community rally in St. Bernard Community to educate President Obama

Sunday, August 29, 2010

11 am

Fight Back Community Center

3820 Alfred St., New Orleans, LA 70122 (across from the 3800 block of St. Bernard Ave.)

Contact: Endesha Juakali

Phone: 504.239.2907

Website: http://communitiesrising.wordpress.com/

President Barack Obama is scheduled to visit the St. Bernard community tomorrow at 3 pm to view the Columbia Parc development as part of events to commemorate the 5th anniversay of Hurricane Katrina. Survivors Village will host a community rally in the St. Bernard community tomorrow starting at 11 am to highlight the exclusionary policies, retaliatory tactics, and outright lies of the Columbia Residential corporation and to educate President Obama about the ongoing struggle of the former St. Bernard residents to realize their human right to return to their homes and community.

“President Obama has to be exposed to the truth”, says former resident and Survivors Village member Kawana Jasper. “Columbia Parc received its contract through corruption, lied to the residents at every step of the development process, and is trying to intimidate the residents with false charges and threats.” Survivors Village member Stephanie Mingo says, “We will be heard. Obama promised that he would do right by the people of the Gulf Coast, and we intend to make him live up to that promise. If he continues to let Columbia Parc get away with their criminal and discriminatory behavior, then he will be doing no better than Bush”.

To ensure that the human rights of the St. Bernard residents are respected, protected, and fulfilled by the Obama administration, Survivors Village is demanding that any former resident wanting to live in Columbia Park should be admitted immediately and unconditionally; that the false charges against Sharon Jasper be dropped immediately and the threat to terminate her voucher be withdrawn; that the demand for more than 30,000 Section 8 vouchers be met immediately; and that the PETRA bill threatening to privatize public housing throughout the country be permanently withdrawn.

Black people Lets make the Internet into a modern African drum and spread the word

 

During ancient times our forefathers of Africa used drums to spread important messages. I’m now lovingly asking their decendants; my Black Brothers and Sisters to now please do the same utilizing the internet. Please commit yourselves to spreading the following important message to all of our people.Our liberation from despair is depended upon it.

Through its national media outlets the U.S. Government is using fraudulent propaganda to adversely manipulate and shape the minds and collective perceptions of its Black populations.

The constant relentless bombardment with deplorably negative images of themselves that of which African Americans are so inundated with throughout the U.S. media is a deliberately designed psychological conditioning program. It is an insidious, yet very sophisticated method of control that conditions America ’s Black population to accept white dominance over their lives by misleading them to believe that they are now themselves their own worst enemies. This is the same psychological warfare technology used by the U.S. Government against foreign adversaries. It was decided to secretly use it to domestically defend the white race’s position of power and dominance against its Black population.

This psychosocial program uses propaganda to adversely manipulate and shapes the minds and collective perceptions of America ’s Black population by subjecting them to seeing only the fraudulent worst in themselves. Its unrelenting daily assault on the Black psyche is designed to corrupts African Americans’ sense of racial unity and cohesion, mold the character of self-hatred, engender self-doubt, self-loathing, and distrust among their group thus pulverizing Black unity and halting Black upward mobility. It also totally detaches African Americans from their sense of power and reality while insinuating that they admire, respect, and trust only Whites.

Its anti-black propaganda is disseminated unrelentingly everywhere; it is deliberately perpetuated through news releases in magazine articles, radio, television, press releases, documentaries, and false census reports perpetuating and framing the myth of Whites’ racial, moral, and ethical superiority over its Black population. To the detriment of many Blacks, this psychological conditioning has been an extremely effective. It has successfully conditioned many African Americans to accept the dominance of Whites and white institutions over their lives by misleading them to believe that they are themselves, their own worst enemies. It also engenders an aberration of internalized self contempt that pulverizes Black unity and halts Black upward mobility.

Unlike the blatantly brutal racist systems used in the past, which Blacks were able to identify easily and therefore unify and form counter strategies against, this modern racist system provides a more socially acceptable method of continuing White racial dominance and control given that it is not as easily recognized. And although most are totally oblivious of its existence, it is the most proficient racist system ever deplored against African Americans. The basis of this concept of mind manipulation works by affecting the unconscious mind through deception. Its weapon is the message that it carries and the way that it adversely affects the targeted recipient group. Here is a simplified example of how this is being implemented against African Americans. Let us, for example, imagine that a crew of people was aboard their own massive ship and that this ship was being shadowed by another neighboring ship that was constantly broadcasting derogatory messages to the first group. Such messages as that their ship was lesser, smaller, not seaworthy, perhaps slowly sinking or that their crew was incompetent and was planning a mutiny. With time, the group receiving the negative messages, being unable to refute or to confirm these derogatory messages and deficiencies will grow weary and paranoid of the negative messages and will eventually comes to accept these negative assessments of themselves. The perception created by the taunting now unconsciously influences how the taunted group perceives themselves, subsequently causing them to become distrustful of themselves, doubting themselves, hating themselves and, eventually, fighting among themselves. The taunted group may even become so besieged by deep feelings of inadequacy that they may even jump into the sea and attempt to swim towards the taunting ship now believing it to be superior to their own boat even if their own ship was in fact better.
Within a real life setting this mortifying psychological manipulation is precisely what is being done to African Americans through an immense campaign of false derogatory misinformation and false negative media reports, fake news, and statistics that are created by U.S. governmental agencies and then leaked to its collaborators in the news media, which either knowingly or unknowingly carry the stories as their own. Moreover, all African Americans have experienced the burden of this psychological warfare, some more severely than others have. It is experienced every time that a Black person read a newspaper, watch the evening news, enter a classroom, and read its racially biased textbooks.

And while many Black Americans have successfully navigated through the psychology mortifying mine field and have gone on to lead successful, productive lives, however, for far too many this immense devaluation can seem inescapable. Tragically, over time, many Blacks begin to accept subconsciously and painfully the negative portrayals of themselves. The effects of this psychosocial program are very detrimental. No group can be preconditioned to see only the worst in themselves and not exhibit some degree of negative psychological impact. In fact this program is so proficient at damaging the Black self-perception that tragically it has become easier for many to accept the derogatory premises of themselves rather than recognizing that they’re being mass manipulated to hate and doubt themselves. Most Black victims of this social engineering program remain totally oblivious of it even though it adversely affects their lives.

As a result of this massive program, today a great number of Black people favorably perceive the white race while negatively viewing their own. Despite possessing a history of unparalleled racism, subjugation of all other races, and crimes against humanity the White race is now perceived by many Blacks as being the most ethical and moral racial group. In fact today it is not uncommon to hear many blacks make verbal declarations lessoning the significance of white racism within their lives; while arguing that it is rather they themselves that are their own worst enemies. These self contemptuous sentiments are also evident in how many now regards their own history of slavery. Many African Americans now blame more harshly their history of slavery on Africans rather than their white invaders. Some Blacks have even gone as far as to excuse whites by saying that it wasn’t their fault for enslaving us, but rather the fault of our own people for not wanting us.[this gross exaggeration of facts was deliberately revamped by white historians and is sadly accepted by many Blacks] In addition, although the African Holocaust lasted four hundred years longer and resulted in millions of more deaths than that of the Jewish Holocaust, many Black people however often holds greater sympathy towards the Jewish Holocaust-over their own.

This mass manipulation program also fosters a consensual national setting for the mistreatment of Blacks.

Its constant negative portrayal of Black America is also being done to engender a shift of victimization that changes the root problem of racism in America to be due to Black’s behavior rather than White’s proclivity for racism. Therefore engendering increasingly prejudiced distorted perceptions and acrimonious beliefs about African Americans that are designed to makes the nation and the entire world insensitive to their plight, tranquilizes efforts on their behalf, lessens pressure for social change on their behalf and now makes any serious criticism of White racism almost impossible.

This program also creates false justifications for the legal system’s mistreatment of African Americans. Wherein they are disproportionately incarcerated, given stiffer sentences, and are more likely than other racial groups to be treated brutally, beaten, and fired upon by police officers while they are unarmed. These injustices now goes ignored because the perception has become that it’s all now justified. When contempt of Blacks is made to appear to be justifiable, it is the fiercest and most effective type of racism because its witnesses, bystanders, and even world audiences will sit by idly allowing African Americans to be brutally mistreated under the belief that it is justified. It also affects attitudes that when enacted through governmental policies, laws, and other legislation actions, serve to ensure that African Americans will not advance.

Since this program is classified, no one locally to Blacks will understand it or believe it is being used against them. Nor do its Black victims have any agency to report the unethical activity to. Governmental agents of this secret program operate above the law. In the eyes of federal, state, and local law enforcement, this technology doesn’t exist. It was this mass manipulation program that eroded the unprecedented degree of Black unity demonstrated during the 1960’s civil rights struggles; and that stripped African Americans of the global support acquired then.

Even while now having a Black President, America ’s white controlled government is still unrelenting in its commitment towards maintaining its White dominance and control, and clearly this covert psychosocial program meets this need. Because this method possesses both the ability to engender negative psychological feelings among African Americans and create a consensual national setting for their mistreatment and suppression.

When the truth comes along, and you know within your soul that it’s the truth, and yet you still refuse to act upon it you then really begin to die.

Now that the truth is known Black people must all do their parts to counter this program. This requires that we spread this truth. Please copy this disclosure and forward it to all of your friends and contacts. Also you can learn more and support these efforts by ordering a copy of the book or DVD entitled The Black Matrix; The Modern Social Suppression of Black people Under National Interest. ©2006, revise 2008
