Black Progress – Coleman Hughes

Featuring #colemanhughes on Black Progress⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀It is true that the social narrative about Black people is most often negative, doom and gloom, crime, etc. Particularly during times like these, the focus is on grievances and whether or not those grievances have been met over the years, the focus is always on the magnification of problems.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Granted, the goal of finding solutions would be the entire point of airing out grievances, But in doing so, many are oriented towards comparisons with other groups and are oriented away from celebrating the gains made thus far. A noteworthy point of his argument is that if one habituates themselves to only looking at gaps from the perspective of comparison to outside factors versus comparison to one's own group - over a given period of time ...

Identifying the Whole with the Lowest Common Denominator

The recent unrest and racial strife in the United States has provided insight into the world of Black Americans whose lifestyle, mindset and affiliations are not representative of what is popularly presented as 'Black American' or 'Black people'.

Cargo shorts? Basketball shorts? So many questions, so few answers. Sometimes, people fill in the blanks when there are questions that do not have definitive, factual answers. Especially in a case like Ahmaud Arbery. One that tugs at t...

Murder Statistics (2018)

I agree dealing with injustice where ever it exists. George Floyd should not have been murdered. Period. However, I have had to LEARN to back up emotions with rationale and facts so that we have a solid case when righting wrongs. As parents, it's a huge priority in rearing our children. This is really important because based on epigenetics, pain and trauma can be passed down from parent to child, and it can be crippling if parents don't heal thereby allowing another generation to carry that burden. We know that the easiest way to manipulate a person and predict behavior is to train them to react emotionally and without thinking. If they are already predisposed to carrying wounds based on what they learned in the home (trauma bonding and intense lingering feelings of victimization)...
