Using The Field of Science As a Way of Life

The only field of study that never really has the chance to repeat history is science because all they do is test hypotheses. They examine, study, learn, apply and innovate based around their findings. I think Black people ought to follow that model so we would never fall for the okeydoke and see it before it happens in the first place.

We must study our role in this country and how things got the way they were then to what they are currently. What were the attitudes of the masses at that time? How did they influence policies that were made in regards to us as a people? When did those changes take place or if there were changes? Many questions like these need to be asked in order to understand what is going on with us and what has been going on in the past.

People say we should forget the past and look towards the future instead. Blindingly looking towards the future without looking at the past is destructive and keeps a person stuck because they can’t learn from their mistakes. As a result, they will continue to repeat history. That’s where we are… still repeating history because we want to stay blind. Lather, rinse, repeat. Its self defeating at best. Id rather study, learn, do, and innovaate vs stay stuck because, “some things should stay in the past”.

The truth is, we pick and choose what we want to remember. Some are willing to hide the truth and stay willingly ignorant so they can get by. Some rather know the whole truth and be better. But one must ask themselves the following questions: “What side of history do I want to be on? Do I want to be the same as the slave who actually did their best to free themselves and their families? Or do I want to be the elderly slave who accepted their position as a slave and balked at freedom when it became an option?” Your choice.

  1. “The truth is, we pick and choose what we want to remember.” <--- That right there. I was just talking to a black boomer and I don't think the level of cognitive dissonance in regard to how they blindly follow and loyally to the Dem Party and black church can be overcome. Prime example their support of Biden despite a 47 year record of antiblackness

    • It seems like when it comes to politics, we are required to be forced to swallow our pride and vote for the so called welfare of this country. And the welfare of this country is subjective depending on whose hand is doing their best to manipulate us. Im tired of this country looking to Black people to vote for them to pretend to fix their shit. We never benifited from their so called efforts. All they’ve shown us is band-aids. They refuse to actually look at the root causes of said actions. What are the root causes, they ask? Whenever we bring them up, they want to hem haw and debate our response. Truth is that they dont want to really address these problems because it would cause them to have identity crises. So they deflect, debate and stick their head in the sand. Lather. Rinse. Repeat. This is why we have to get out from under them and do our own thing without including them or their so called allies. Because they have proven time and time again that they cant get past their own vanity to actually do anything that doesnt serve their own purposes.
