Black Homeowner Vulnerability And Misguidance

The Black man and the Black woman are still in a peculiar economic and social position across the entire globe. As the African Union is currently making dynamic strides and strong political moves to solidify a much long overdue stake-hold of the great continent of resource rich Africa, the Black world is still positioned to beg for change instead of creating it for themselves.

The African American Union is nowhere to be found. While the resources of Africa are still being squabbled over, and their Black political body seems to be continuing their own economic and sociopolitical fight to retrieve what was lost, the economic and sociopolitical body of Black American is still maintained within the crux of a dominant white and Eurocentric value system. The Black American still to this day finds him and herself evaluating his and her success against the white man and the white woman. It appears that it will be another fifteen generations until the Black man and woman in America understand that it is only through ethnocentric reevaluation from which true cultural and community wealth is built. The Black man and woman have not learned this and much of the problem can be attributed to the psychic violence against Black people from the omnipresent barrage of American popular culture, which teaches everyone to believe in their own individuality and self success attaining prowess. This ideology is suitable for many white people, but is not for the majority of Black people. Black people as a community cannot afford to uplift one singular individual up and out of the Black community. That process of elimination is nothing more than an exiting of our most valuable resource and that is the successful and economically enriching human resource. Our community mechanism is a very different one from any other and it is imperative to maintain our most precious assets as much as possible. These individuals must be able to bring back to the Black community what they have obtained and intelligently diffuse their wealth in a manner which will benefit them as well as the community as a whole. The Chinese and the Koreans do it, so can we.

The Washington Post recently published a series of articles about the economic downfall of homeowners living in Prince George’s County, Maryland, just outside of Washington DC.

Prince George’s County, historically within the last twenty years, was known as the neighborhood with the largest concentration of Black millionaires. Unfortunately when the subprime lending scandal blew over and many homeowners lost their home equity, Prince George’s County was one neighborhood that was hit the hardest. The predominately white communities surrounding the predominately Black enclaves have been able to recoup the majority of their equity since, however the Black neighborhoods have not been. The main reason is because no one wants to move into an all Black neighborhood simply because of this country’s racist psychology about Black people. This Black neighborhood boycott has kept the property value down in this particular neighborhood and the homeowners who have managed to stay are at their wits end. The problem is also compounded by Black people who flee the neighborhood, and rightfully so if they believe they are ruining their children’s future, and the Black people who boycott the neighborhood and choose to buy in the predominately white community believing their home equity is safer there. It is understandable to make these decisions from an individual standpoint, but this thinking only furthers the vulnerability of the Black community. It renders the Black communities as nothing more than neighborhoods, until another group buys in and creates a community out of what we have disposed of.

It is situations like the one in Prince George’s county when an African American Union would have probably done some good. Their could have been an effort to garner some financial and homeowner guidance to the community which could have educated them about the reality of American homeownership and real estate. The fact is that affluent Black people love to live around other affluent Black people and it is more important to protect the fact than to wish it the best and let it fend for itself. Those homeowners could have had an educated and culturally responsible real estate professional inform them of some of the pitfalls of refinancing and accepting new mortgage terms with new lenders. They could have probably been educated on the fact that home equity is not as important as holding on to the tangible asset of the actual home and the land in order to pass on to their children. They could have been informed of the reality of debt and how to manage it in a mature way so that even after accepting an initial loan that may have been out of reach when they first signed, that the community could have pooled their money together to save itself in entirety.

We must come together in order to defend ourselves from the economic and psychic violence which has plagued us for five hundred years. Too many of us are economically vulnerable and psychologically misguided. We can only reshape our children’s destinies for the better if we form true Black communities and work for ourselves together.

The Weakness Of The Black Subordinate Mentality

What we all have to recognize is that amongst us we have a common maladaptive, misguided, miseducated, indiscriminately imposed, abnormal, weakened and downtrodden mental consciousness. It is one of a subordinate servant. We all must further fully realize and actualize as a people that we also have one common enemy, who with their selfish, misguided, uneducated, insidious, diseased and unwarranted superior yet truly inferior way of thinking, have fooled us into believing in a great myth. The great myth is that they are superior and we are inferior. It is time we recollect our awareness and our thoughts and reach back in time and recall that we have a common goal, and that is to reclaim our power and become a great nation once again as we have been before. It is imperative that our goal be achieved if we intend to survive and substantially reap the true benefits of our toil for our generations to come.

We have a lot of weaknesses in our way of thinking today. Our mentality is one of a non thinker, an imbecile, a wanton, a silly, a jest, a joke, someone who cannot be taken seriously. We have a great tendency to rely on others for our own validation. Our men are profoundly discouraged and our women are easily fooled. We think our way of thinking is good for us. We believe we are all individuals who have no agency to our community and one another. We consume liberally in belief that the more we consume then the more our illusionary success is substantiated. We believe the pervasively simple yet fleeting notion that money alone is power. We are quite foolish.

We are quite foolish in the sense that these anecdotal follies of the consciousness are simply proverbial ideological hand-me-downs from them. They wrote us a simplistic and undefined lackadaisical cartoon playbook for our so called life, then said it was the truth to our success. This quick sleight of hand motion from our enemy happened in 1964. The trickery and devilish events that played out between 1964 and into the 1970s have setup a current culture defined in uncontrollable pseudo liberalism, quasi intellectualism, and plain stupidity. We are once again a people divided, suffering from a generation gap which insists that our parents cannot teach our children, and our children are parenting children. Our history has been forgotten once more, especially our recent history.

These are symptoms of the weakness of the subordinate mentality. The idea that someone else is superior to us is more present now than it was 55 years ago. We once again seek acceptance amongst a people who will never fully accept us. We once again believe if we act like them long enough that we can actually become them. We once again believe that since we are born here that we naturally belong here. We are once again fooled by a stupid little lie, the lie of equality. We are not equal. We are not made the same. We do not think the same. We are very different, and the more we try to act like them the further we do ourselves a tremendous disservice, in service of them. The weakness of the subordinate mentality has affected our progress toward solidarity and wealth building. Our power sources are impeded by our subservient predisposition to labor. We do not labor for ourselves and our own people. We labor for them unconsciously as well as consciously. They take from us with no protest on our behalf. We give our mind and body to them without regard and willingly. We are slaves.

There is a weakness within the subordinate mentality. We learn their history and say it is ours. We determine the potency of our sexuality based on their sadistic standards and proclaim it as natural. We eat their food and call it our own. We use their model of family structure to rate the value of ours and say we are homegrown. Our women define beauty as that of their women and believe they are feminists. Our men attest to success as that of their men and call themselves entrepreneurs. We substantiate our wealth with the idea of owning property on their illegitimate lands. We fight their wars for them without just cause or due pay and claim to be patriotic. We teach our children their sciences, which are bastard inklings of our fathers’ knowledge, and call it a good education. We study their religions and praise their gods and call ourselves holy. These are but a few of the weaknesses of the subordinate mentality.

Our greatness is at hand. It is within our own grasp. Our power is between the lot of us and us alone. The gates must be shut and the lock must be latched. Our front door has been opened for too many centuries. It is time to close the windows and let down the blinds. We cannot afford our guests’ presence in our homes any longer. They have raided our refrigerator and soiled our furniture. They have left their mess and we must clean after them. We have partied with them on our dime and to our demise. They do not appreciate us nor do they care to invest in our well being. We are fools to believe they will change and become a proper acquaintance. Now and forever we should see them for who they are, parasites and guile adversaries.

Now we should look at one another and rebuild our kingdom, our nation, our empire. We now need to work amongst ourselves and ourselves only. We do not need any outside influence or acceptance. This is our duty to ourselves and our generations to come. No longer should we suffer from the weaknesses of a subordinate mentality. We must recollect our history and speak the truths of one another to each other. It is only then that our power will be rekindled and our nation rebuilt to its heights. There is only one way to solve our plight and that is through solidarity and close minded, self centered restructure of our own selves as a people. Our leaders must be reinvented and our warriors must be reorganized. Our women need to be reacquainted and our children reeducated. We are not powerless and we are not truly subordinate. We are powerful and we are superior. We are the greatest creation to walk the earth. It is for us to recognize and reclaim our true place and position here, now, and forever.
