The ill shaping of Black self images by white elites Posted on 07-06-2011
Thanubian

The self-perceptions of Black people are being covertly negatively shaped by white elites.

   “Reality is merely an illusion, although a very persistent one.”

                                                            – Albert Einstein

 

The perceptions of black people are being covertly negatively shaped by White elites to ensure the continuance of white dominance and control. It is a very sophisticated racist system that is much less public and obvious than the overt methods used in the past--yet it is unprecedentedly more harmfully proficient. With a strong prevailing history of slavery in the United States, racism has always been an issue. This engrained societal problem of racism has always necessitated that America’s white elites develop and implement racist systems to defend and maintain their positions of white dominance. As seen where of which after the abolition of slavery different forms of segregation were implemented including Jim Crow laws and the later American political structures which invited extreme segregation within many cities across the nation. However as overt and obvious racial discrimination became morally unacceptable and illegal it became necessary to develop more sophisticated less apparent covert methods.

 

Because the past, blatant methods used for ensuring the continuance of White dominance from the reconstruction period through the 1960's had become morally and socially unacceptable this required that America’s White elites develop a more sophisticated and stealthy method—a design better suited for changing times.

Today Black people are unknowingly the victims of a very sophisticated covert racist program. This new method is far more sophisticated than the overtly racist methods used in the past. Its methods includes both the ability to create a national climate that is insensitive to the plight of African Americans and produce psychological feelings among African Americans that makes them more compliance to white dominance.

 The U.S. media’s racially devaluing depictions and distorted portrayal of Black America that amplifies the negative to the point that it distorts reality is a deliberately designed racist ideological subversion program. This subversion program disseminates false deplorably racially devaluing statistics and propaganda about America’s Black population as a means of defending and maintaining America’s position of white dominance. Today what are often deemed as being credible news sources are often totally made up stories made to push an agenda or meet a governmental objective.

 This present system uses the national media's proven ability to mass manipulate and socially engineer society through the usage mass media propaganda techniques. Its constant deplorably negative depictions of African Americans- that subjects them to seeing only the fraudulent worst in themselves- is designed to corrupts their sense of racial black unity and cohesion, mold the character of self-hatred, engender self-doubt, self-loathing, and distrust among their group; and insinuate that Blacks admire, respect, and trust only Whites. It also drills the message that Blacks are powerless, of lesser moral, and intelligence and that they need whites to govern over their lives. Its unrelenting daily assault on the Black psyche is designed to adversely manipulate and shape the minds and collective consciousness of America’s Black population. The main motto of this mass manipulation program is to divide and conquer and it works by affecting the unconscious mind through deception.

Furthermore it totally detaches African Americans from their sense of power and reality. And it also facilitates a national setting that is insensitive to their plight and that fosters a consensual national setting of where in which they are more easily mistreated, exploited and ultimately suppressed.

When most people hear the term of psychological manipulation they usually think in terms of the classic "conspiracy theory" that refers to overt mind control such as mind altering drugs with carefully hypnotic programming. However, the real and true dangers are the well proven methods of affecting the unconscious mind by using deception, and psychological manipulation. It is neither magical nor mystical, but a process of manipulation that works by affecting the unconscious mind through deception. It uses the psychology of deceit to adversely affect the recipient group in terms of their behavior.

 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 followed 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 of their 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 ship even if their own ship was in fact better. The basis of this concept of mind manipulation is that the human being's most critical aspect is the mind and it works by affecting the mind through deception. The ultimate goal of this method of psychological manipulation is to divide and conquer and it works by affecting the unconscious mind through deception.

In regards to African Americans this mortifying psychosocial treatment is precisely what is being deliberately done through an immense campaign of false derogatory misinformation and false negative media reports and statistics [that are totally comprised by white sources] that intentionally subjects them to seeing only the fraudulently worst in themselves.

Here is how it works: Fraudulent derogatory stories about African Americans are secretly 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. These false information about African Americans are then disseminated unrelentingly everywhere; it is deliberately perpetuated through news releases in magazine articles, radio, television, press releases, documentaries, and false census reports. However, the weapon is not in how the message is carried, but is instead within the messages that it carries and how these messages perpetuate and frame the myth of Whites’ racial, moral, and ethical superiority over its Black population. This falsehood detrimentally affects the Black population at large. The ultimate goal of this governmental psychosocial treatment of African Americans is to destroy the Black unity and cohesion that was historically the cornerstone of civil rights gains and that was a crucial factor of the survival of African Americans through more than four hundred years of white racial oppression.

Logic dictates that given that unity and cohesion among African Americans was responsible for the demise of White America’s previous blatant system of institutionalized racism, then destroying this unity would be an essential objective of this psychological manipulation program. Changing times made it necessary for the U.S. government to change its racist methods to a much more subtle and socially acceptable manner, then clearly, the sophisticated method of psychological warfare met such a need. It was the logical choice, perfect for the changing times. Unlike the blatantly brutal forms of racism used in the past, which Blacks were able to identify easily and therefore unify and form counter strategies, this modern method of racism covertly works from a psychological perspective-- thus providing the U.S. government a more socially acceptable means of protecting its White racial hierarchy given that it is not as easily recognized.
This method of covert racism is much less public and obvious form of racism or overt racism. It is hidden in the fabric of society, covertly suppressing the individuals being discriminated against. Covert racially biased decisions are often disguised or rationalized with an explanation that society is more willing to accept. These racial biases cause a variety of problems that work to empower the suppressors while diminishing the rights and powers of the oppressed. Covert racism often works subliminally, and often much of the discrimination is being done subconsciously. See Chester Pierce, "Offensive Mechanisms" in Floyd B. Barbour (Editor), The Black Seventies (Boston, Mass: Porter Sargent Publisher, 1970).

All African Americans have experienced the burden of this covert system of applied psychological conditioning, some more severely than others have. It is experienced every time that an African American read a newspaper, watch the evening news, listen to a radio report, enter a classroom and read its racially biased textbooks. Most Black people are unaware that they are the systematic victims of this massive covert racist scheme however it is directly attributed to the intensification of internalized self-hatred, profound disunity, and present confused outlook now prevalent in Black America.

No group can be preconditioned to see only the worst in themselves and not exhibit some degree of negative psychological impact. To the detriment of many African Americans, this psychosocial program 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. This creates feelings of internalized black self-contempt that pulverizes Black unity and halts Black upward mobility.
And while many African Americans have successfully navigated through this psychologically mortifying mine field and have gone on to lead successful, productive lives, for far too many this immense devaluation can seem inescapable. And tragically, over time, many begin to accept subconsciously and painfully the negative portrayals of themselves. Many also become discouraged by the acceptance that their society is also preconditioned to see the worst in them and that, therefore, if they were ever to gain acceptance, if it is to be won at all, that success would be hard won. This in turn manifests negative internalized psychological pain and distress within many African Americans that can take many forms. In fact, this mortifying governmental psychosocial treatment of African Americans may be the most aggravating, if not core, factor of the national phenomenon of self-contempt; loss of unity, cohesion and racial pride; and often fragile psyches of many African Americans today. It is in fact so fundamentally detrimental to the Black human condition and psyche that it may even affect the extent to which many African Americans realize their full human potential. This massive psychosocial program is at the root of both the profound feelings of internalized self-contempt now afflicting so many Black Americans and is at the heart of internalized feelings of superiority that many whites possess.


This mass manipulation program also fosters a national climate that is insensitive to the plight of Black America.  It does so by engendering 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. This produces increasingly prejudiced distorted perceptions and acrimonious beliefs about African Americans that 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 makes any serious criticism of White racism almost impossible today.
It also creates a false justification 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 most fiercest and effective type of racism because its witnesses, bystanders, and even world audiences will sit by idly allowing African Americans to be brutally mistreated disproportionately incarcerated 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. Its effects are manifested in ideas, education, governmental policies, economic stratification, social segregation, housing markets, hiring and promotion practices, psychological issues, and minority access to a variety of social services and opportunity. Moreover, some studies have shown that this shift of victimization now reflects increasingly acrimonious beliefs and prejudiced perceptions about and against African Americans that are arguably stronger today than they were after emancipation.

This concept of the U.S government using psychological warfare through the national media as a weapon to influence and control its Black population is not at all ridiculous. The objective of the United States government has always been to maintain and defend its position of White dominance against its Black population [This secret tradition continues even with now having its first Black President], and clearly this method of covert mass psychological warfare meets this need—It was perfect for changing time because it covertly allows white governments to control and manipulate its Black population to maintain its White dominance. Furthermore, the U.S. Government has an extensive history of using the national media to psychologically manipulate and influence public opinion. It is indeed a very common governmental practice.

Today what are often deemed as being credible news sources are often totally made up stories made to push an agenda or meet a governmental objective. Many journalists working for public relations firms are now hired by a U.S. government department to produce fake news reports. The media is manipulated in all manners through professional public relations (PR) firms, and covert and overt government agencies which disseminate propaganda as news. These media reports are used to promote certain political policies, ideologies and governmental objectives. These false reports are being presented as factual news by journalists, and are rebroadcast by news stations without revealing the segment is from a PR firm hired by the government, thus giving it the appearance of genuine news. As a means of meeting its unrelenting objective of maintaining its white racial dominance and control, the U.S. government now secretly disseminates racially devaluing fake news reports and fraudulent misinformation through the national and local media regarding its Black population.

Furthermore, throughout western history cultures that creates and maintains empires have done so by manipulating the people that they are trying to conquer. They go out of their way to make sure that the people that they’re attempting to conquer is perpetually misled and manipulated. Therefore the conquered group’s perception of reality is not their own. It is shrewdly imposed upon them without them even knowing it.

Fake deplorable news reports about African Americans are being deliberately disseminated unrelentingly everywhere 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. It is time that more African Americans wake up to this reality and ongoing tradition.

This is not an attempt to advocate anti-white racism, but is instead the indisputable truth. This unethical yet very sophisticated method of control through the usage of mass psychological manipulation is the crowning achievement of Dr. Edward Bernays, a mass manipulation expert that was hired by several U.S. presidents. Dr. Bernays was also a prestigious founding member of the Tavistock Institute of Human Relation; an organization that specializes in mass manipulation and brain washing. He said in his book Propaganda, that; "The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in a democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country” “...If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without them knowing it.” The current public relations industry is a direct outgrowth of Bernays' work and his is also still currently used by the United States government.
The media’s immense ability to manipulation the masses should never be under estimated nor is it ever overstated. A few news reports about a fake swine flu outbreak can convince millions of people not to attend work tomorrow and to even pull their children out of schools. Mass manipulation through the media is a very powerfully effective tool.

The psychological manipulation of African Americans has been so successfully accomplished that it is very difficult to reverse. You see, part of the conditioning is almost like Stockholm syndrome. The victimized group begins to love their oppressor and come to feel that the oppressor is justified in its mistreatment of their group. The victims begin to feel that they deserve their endured mistreatment, and will even resent what is being disclosed here within this article.

Although the formal covert Counterintelligence Program deployed by the FBI directed against African Americans during the period of 1956-1971 was discontinued, this far more sophisticated method was secretly implemented against America’s entire Black population. And it continues even now. To learn more about this real life “Black Matrix” that is being used against African Americans and Black people the world over please visit www.DivineBlacktruth.org
