Perverting the Minds of Children-Mwalimu Baruti

Char1...

“The most important targets in this move to escalate the introduction of perverted,insane ideas into our minds are children. You change who a people are through altering their children,gradually generation after generation.  And because of their innocence and impressionability,our children’s minds are the most fertile soil for the introduction and successful implantation of perverted European ideas.  As they grow,those insanities that they have assimilated as normal and natural becomes what they believe they are.”

Meghan Markle: Redefining Black female identity?

Meghan5....jpg

Since there’s so much talk about biracial actress Meghan Markle,here’s a few pictures and videos.  Some peopel ahve told me they aren’t familiar with her. Some think she might turn out to be some so-called pro-black mulatto like Jesse Williams or Colin Kaepernick.  But I can assure you she is nothing of the sort.  Especially once you know her background.These videos and pictures should give you a better since what Markle is really about.  Her upcoming wedding to Prince Harry is not a win for black women. And not for black people as a whole either.  The royals achieved  their wealth and power through murdering and enslaving African people. And shouldn’t be celebrated at all.

This photo(above) is of Markle as the homecoming queen in high school. She attended the private,Catholic, Immaculate Heart High school in Los Angeles.

This photo(above) is Markle at Northwestern University in Illinois.  Markle was in the sorority Kappa Kappa Gamma. Were there any black women in the sorority?  Doesn’t look like it to me.

Here’s a recent picture(above) of Markle and her mother,Doria Radlan.

Some people are not aware that Markle is divorced.  This picture(above) is of her ex-husband film producer Trevor Engelson.

Markle..

This is a picture(above) of Markle with ex-boyfriend Canadian chef  Cory Vitiello.  Reports say she was dating Vitiello at the time,when she met prince Harry.  They say Harry asked for her phone number.  Next thing you know…Vitiello is a memory.  Guess she wanted to move up in the world.   I can’t seem to find any pictures of her with black boyfriends.  So I will assume she never dated any.  Markle has said in an interview that she is an “other”.  Even though she has a black mother,her life in Los Angeles seems primarily white.  Her parents divorced when she was sic years old. Her private high school was mostly white too.  So I would say she’s a mixed race woman that is more white-idenitified than anything else.  The fact that she is now marrying a so-called royal is nothing to get excited about.  I hoped this post gave you a better understanding of Markle and her upbringing.  She’s not one of us.
