On Black People and (Higher) Education

The American education system is extremely broken, and the issues are only compounded when you are Black. Contrary to popular belief, education is not going to magically save Black people from racism, especially when every level of the academic system is designed to uphold and continue the cycle of white supremacy. Operating within academia is still operating within white supremacy, and we need to navigate those waters very, very carefully.

Thanks for watching.

  1. I graduated from UC Berkeley in three years with an organic chemistry degree and spent nine months in a suit and tie walking the streets for a job, in the end I worked at California pizza kitchen! So I have one of the five toughest degrees to get in the entire world and I am only qualified to work at a corporate restaurant chain???😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 fuck this retarded ass system😂😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  2. A true education won’t save you, it curses you because now you see day in and day out in every aspect of life, how everything in this world is a lie, the truth has been inverted on its head, how everything is white and adhere’s to a standard of whiteness because in the beginning it was black And this causes so much cognitive dissonance that whites everywhere would riot if they knew the truth of it! how even calling yourself black means you don’t have a nationality as in a nation,And when you don’t have a nation you can’t be represented in a court of White man’s law! How white man’s law is used to give him everything and take everything (assuming you know the law that is😂🤣)including the history and achievements of everyone who is not white. How television is just a fantasy world for white people to get away from their cognitive dissonance and their constant inability to see their privilege.When you get to the stage of philosopher then all you can do to relax is constantly search for the truth and you become an epic researcher! The end goal is to become a sage who does not adhere to the standardized method of research or science.Most of us are far more intelligent than our white counterparts because we grow up in an environment where we are steeped in the opinions and emotions of a system that is contradictory to our Core beliefs. Scientists, Christians and academics spend their entire lives indulging their preferential bias and reinforcing their eugenics based pseudoscientific race based system to continue the status quo. Personally I’ve come to realize all we need to do is use a little common sense and educate ourselves!The only difference between us and an African fresh off the boat is the African knows his history and who he is and where he comes from and all we know is white man’s history!

  3. Your telling the truth sister! And i love that you share it with the world. People need to understand that this capitalism system is bulllshitttt !unfortunately it still exists

  4. Wow you have a degree in journalism! You’re like my big sister on yt so now I’m definitely gonna stick with my journalism major also 😭 love it love everything

  5. I feel like NOT BEING AFRAID TO MOVE is a big key to success even over network.. alot of people get stuck in jobs because they are afraid to leave a company or afraid to work outside of the city..alot of people who moved up if you look at their resume they have worked in many different places sometimes different countries

  6. This video shows up as a result of my "why is it important for black people to go to college", as I procrastinate, am bored, and feel exhausted as fuck by the thought of studying.

  7. My MFA director is infiltrating hard core, he’s slowly making all the visiting artists black and all the residences artist black. It’s amazing cause only the poc are picking up on that but we keeping it hush hush cause you know white people are delusional. He also made all the poc his advisees. He’s sneaky and so smart luv it.

  8. I’m doing my masters right now and I graduated college all I saw were the people of color working twice as hard and the white people using their privilege to slack of not learn anything, not being invested cause they know they never have to work in life.
    They try really hard the white students to bring brilliant students of color down and the teachers make it harder for you to go to class. At my MFA, all the white kids have the most mediocre underdeveloped work I’m the only black woman in my entire MFA and there are three black men there. They do have lower expectations for us and they will fail you if you so much as be 5 minutes late. I was lucky to have a way more diverse school so we had a bunch of queer and black professors but not that many. I worked so fucking hard sense I . I applied to my MFA cause the director was a black man and he’s doing amazing things for black artists in particular. I have a black professor who is my mfa for video installation. I’m so happy to be here it’s in philly by the way.

  9. My sister whose is black and married to black man thinks black with higher education are like somehow exempt from being treated as "niggas" or that Whites wont reject them and accept them sad i know

  10. Man do I feel this one. I am currently taking an intro to poetry course in college and I'm a black women with Marley twists surrounded by disengaged white students learning about "iconic writers" like Emily Dickenson and Robert Frost…its primarily bland white literature sprinkling in some watered down offensive references of black people and their distasteful story lines. We are not allowed to shine even in a subject as broad as creative writing. It is cringey sitting in a room pretending to be interested in historians who didn't give a flying fuck about brilliantly minded people that looked like me, not that we ever had the privilege of utilizing our own free thought and expression in that era…
