My introduction into the black consciousness community began when I was 19 years old. This was over 20 years ago. At that time I met a lot of the leaders of the Black Consciousness community. I attend their lectures and read as many books that I could find about African history, racism, slavery, etc. Since that time there has been two more generations of leaders within the Black Consciousness community. This video is an explanation as to why I do not associate myself with the current generation and past generations of leaders within the Black consciousness community.
To start I will say that there are many leaders within the Black consciousness community who are currently doing positive work and helping to uplift Black people. I respect these leaders and commend them for the important worth that they have and continue to do. However, I recognize that a significant portion of the leadership within the Black consciousness community continues to offer counterproductive rhetoric and information that has and continues to stifle the progressions of black people. It is clear to me that the proportion of counter productivity currently present within the black consciousness community makes it impossible for me to associate myself or my name with the black consciousness community.
Here are my top 5 reasons why I cannot associate with the black consciousness community:
5. Antiquated philosophy and rhetoric
(Orientation towards the past vs. Orientation towards the future)
(Slavery, Jim Crow, Lynchings, Black Wall Street, Civil Rights Movement)
Victim mentality / Perpetual victimhood / Promotes hatred towards other people
4. Lot’s of talk; very little action (Production)
Poverty Consciousness or Ghetto-centric materialism
3. Does not promote healthy family institutions
2. Does not promote positive male/female relationship
(Sexist / Misogynistic / Polygamy / Fake Love For Black Women)
1. Too much beefing / Infighting / Disrespect / Debating / Hatred / Rap / No honorable code of conduct
Black Power is a political slogan and a name for various associated ideologies aimed at achieving self-determination for people of African/Black descent.

The Black Consciousness Movement (BCM) was a grassroots anti-Apartheid activist movement that emerged in South Africa in the mid-1960s out of the political vacuum created by the jailing and banning of the African National Congress and Pan Africanist Congress leadership after the Sharpeville Massacre in 1960. The BCM represented a social movement for political consciousness.
“Black Consciousness origins were deeply rooted in Christianity. In 1966, the Anglican Church under the incumbent, Archbishop Robert Selby Taylor, convened a meeting which later on led to the foundation of the University Christian Movement (UCM). This was to become the vehicle for Black Consciousness.”
The ideology of Black Consciousness, which informed Biko and his colleagues’ approach, represented a deeper strand of Africanism within African nationalism. This ideology had a long history which dates back to the 1880s, when it was borrowed from foreign writers such as Frantz Fanon, whose banned book about the Algerian war against French settlers was widely read. Fanon stated that:
“…the native had become psychologically incapacitated, no longer capable of action. The native detested white society, but was envious of it. Realising that his own skin prevented him from ever attaining privilege, the native despised his own blackness.”
