I'm going to put myself and my afrocentric philosophy on the line here. All I ask is for you to read the first 3 chapters of Demise of the inhuman. (If you wish to skip the forward and introduction ok) But Just read chapters 1, 2 & 3. And give me your thoughts. DEMISE OF THE INHUMAN (Is available on Kindle or you can use the PDF file that I've posted) "Afrocentricity is the most intellectually dominant idea in the African world, one that is having a growing impact on social science discourse. This paradigm, philosophically rooted in African cultures and values, fundamentally challenges major epistemological traditions in Western thought, such as modernism and postmodernism, Marxism, existentialism, feminism, and postcolonialism. In The Demise of the Inhuman, Ana Monteiro-Ferreira reviews what Molefi Kete Asante has called the infrastructures of dominance and privilege, arguing that Western concepts such as individualism, colonialism, race and ethnicity, universalism, and progress, are insufficient to overcome various forms of oppression. Afrocentricity, she argues, can help lead us beyond Western structures of thought that have held sway since the early fifteenth century, towards a new epistemological framework that will enable a more human humanity." -from Demise of the inhuman DEMISE OF THE INHUMAN on PDF https://www.pdfdrive.com/the-demise-of-the-inhuman-afrocentricity-modernism-and-postmodernism-e186608717.html And WOMANIST READER on PDF https://www.pdfdrive.com/a-womanist-reader-e53142064.html And Afrocentric Visions on PDF https://www.pdfdrive.com/afrocentric-visions-studies-in-culture-and-communication-e158070928.html And AFRICANA WOMANISM definition https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Africana_womanism And https://youtu.be/9nAG-DQoeSo Research: DEMISE OF THE INHUMAN AFROCENTRIC THOUGHT AND PRAXIS AFRICANA WOMANISM EUGENICS MEDICAL APARTHEID WAR AGAINST THE WEAK IVAN VAN SERTIMA POST TRAUMATIC SLAVE SYNDROME ASA HILLIARD
Crisis in Education by James Clingman (TriceEdney) - We may as well call it “Edu-pay-tion,” as far as many prospective students are concerned. The cost of a college degree has risen 1,120 percent since 1978, but wages have increased a mere 6% during that same period. The national collective college debt is more than $1 trillion! We have college grads mired in $29,000 of debt, on average, while they are looking for jobs that do not exist. Parents and grandparents of those grads are also saddled with much of that debt, which is immune to bankruptcy, and they will have to make the payments until they die. What have we gotten ourselves into? The greed that accompanied those easy-to-obtain, just-sign-here college tuition loans, borders on immoral. Financial institutions were like Black Friday crowds, trampling one another to get in on the act. New lending operations cropped up every day, and new proprietary colleges and universities opened their doors throughout the nation, advertising their degrees and easy to get loans for tuition. What would happen if students and parents just stop paying on that $1 trillion debt? Who would pay then? Bingo! I can see another bailout coming, and this time it will be for student loans. Ethical implications exist on both sides—the lenders and the borrowers, but no matter what side you take the problem is still here and is looming as yet another bubble about to burst in the near future. As many schools are raising their tuition costs, despite the ominous specter of a meltdown, many prospective students are opting out of their plans to attend college. But where does that leave them in today’s “jobless market”? Sounds like a catch-22. This nation trails many other countries in various fields of education, and we will find ourselves even further behind if this tuition bubble is not deflated very soon. Our young people will not be able to compete on a national level, much less on an international level, without access to adequate, relevant, and higher educational experiences. In other words, the famous mantra, “Leave no child behind” will soon become, “Help every child catch up.” We have smart bombs and dumb children. We have the ability to kill people with drones without even seeing them, but we cannot—or will not—provide adequate education for our children whom we see every day. We have spent trillions destroying and rebuilding Iraq and Afghanistan, but a relative meager amount to secure the future of our own youth. Now we are sending money to Ukraine, along with all the other places to which our dollars flow, while our young people slip further down the education scale. Our priorities are all screwed up. This is not to say that money alone will solve all of our education problems, but more of it, pointed in the right direction, sure would make a positive difference in our current educational crisis—and that’s exactly what it is. Simply throwing money at a problem only results in it being caught by folks for whom it is not meant. The students are at the bottom of the food chain and see little or no benefit from money meant to help them. Meanwhile, as we teach our children how to take tests rather than how to use their critical and analytical thinking skills, we are doing them a gross disservice. And similar to what we saw with the sub-prime housing debacle, if we continue to make financial institutions even wealthier by allowing them to make outlandish loans to college students who cannot afford to repay them, we will soon have another piper to pay. So what do we do? Prospective students should start looking at less expensive alternatives to attain their college degrees. For instance, go to a local school and live at home (I know that’s a tough one, but it beats having to go back to live with your parents when you graduate); stop treating your student loan like it’s a free monthly check that you can use to buy everything but educational necessities; and, here’s a novel idea: work while you are in college. It may not be the most glamorous job, but if it helps pay your tuition and keep you out of thousands in debt, that’s a good thing. Government and financial institutions worked so well when it came to the bailouts. Banks were too big to fail and had to be helped with $780 billion or so. Aren’t our children too important to fail? Maybe they are not; at least not in this country, huh? Anyway, if they care to listen, banks, proprietary schools, and government officials should get together and stop the madness that has led to $1 trillion in student loan debt while graduates cannot get commensurate employment and cannot compete in a global society. We have to stop education from turning into “educ-pay-tion.”
