The most dangerous thing society teaches boys and men, especially white boys and men, is that their emotions are objective logic and reason and that anyone who disagrees is being irrational.
Random Fact: from 1920 to 1960, 67% of African Americans owned businesses, owned land, owned banks, and started their own political parties in this country. It all disappeared when in the 60’s the NAACP demanded from the all white government of America to be integrated within the white culture of America. The prominent and prosperous yet segregated Black America that came to be from the 20’s to the 60’s dissolved overnight with white integration. Resulting in less than 4% of African American ownership in white America.
I remember a teacher in high school saying that integration weakened us. At the time I didnt fully grasp what she meant, but I’ll never forget those words. On the contrast, my older relatives disagreed with that. They lived in DC during a time where you couldnt be in certain places if you were black, not if you valued your safety.
We gained something with integration. An illusion at best. We lost something more important. Economic power.
I’m attracted to intelligence. Not the book smart type of intelligence. I could care less whether you’ve gone to college or how much money you make because of it. I like intelligent conversations that make me think even hours after it’s ended. I soak up words from radical minds.
