Memorial Day - My Dad and My Culture 2010

This day is not just the first big barbecue day of the summer. It is a day to remember and honor our country's fallen and our Culture's fallen. On this day I especially remember my dad in World War II, and his fathers in World War Zero.
Full article and discussion: Newsvine - Memorial Day - My Dad and My Culture

On this day we should remember our soldiers and the cultural lessons of war. It has been said that there are times when the evils of war are justified, but understand that war is always evil. If there is any redeeming value in war, it is that it should teach us something about our Nation, our soldiers and our selves. What we learn should make TeamAmerica more human and better global citizens.

 See the important Cultural Health war lesson below:

War has a power that can bridge the peace time anti-humanism non-sense sometimes displayed at home, if we pay close attention to the realities of war. Cultural Poisoning must be weeded out if TeamAmerica is to move forward. I look forward to you doing your part.

Avatar Gets Cultural Health Seal of Approval

Avatar Receives the Cultural Health Seal of Approval and is in the running for the Culturally Healthy movie of the year Award.

Avatar is easily the most Culturally Healthy major movie of the African year 20,010 (2010)thus far. The two billion pulse Black people worldwide and countless indigenous people, got the Cultural worldview imprecations of this move. Great job Mr. Cameron and crew.

Blue Christmas

This movie did not get the big mainstream movie award for a reason. Some European American writers have tried to culturally confuse and belittle the Cultural literacy importance of the biggest grossing movie of all time. People flocked to see this movie like they flocked to see Roots on TV for the same reason, it improved their Cultural Literacy.

This is good for the Nation's Cultural Health, if the movie is seen in the proper light and used to promote harmony on TeamAmerica and Cultural Humanism in the world in General.

Here are some details about Avatar and it's connection to the Central Worldview (African), that you may have missed. Were does "I see you" come from? What names from Classical African Civilization, Kemet (Ancient Egypt/Nubia) are in the movie? for answers to these questions and more read Avatar Africans and Racism

From a Black Cultural Health perspective my analysis is straight forward. For the first time in a major motion picture of this magnitude, Worldview Theory was on display in 3D for all to see, vibrating seats in the Imax and all. James Cameron did a masterful job in creating Avatar.

What a remarkable technical and cultural feat, from the luminescent landscape to the Na-Vi's connection to the land and the other life forms on Pandora. On Earth, their have been from the earliest of times in recorded history, three major Worldviews and their attendant Values, Interests and Principles, (VIP's). The Central Worldview (African), The Eastern Worldview (Asian) and the Western Worldview (Caucasian) in their order of entry into the historical record.

With the entrance of the last Worldview onto the global stage, with its core value of excessive individualism, we see the Cultural War begin, c 1500 B.C.E., with the Core value of communalism held in the Central and Eastern Worldviews. Most indigenous cultures hold communalism (the people) in high regard. Individuals put the interests of the people and nature before their own petty individual desires. It is in fact, the natural way of existence for spiritual beings having a human experience, before the advent of greed and the criminal corporations of the Western Worldwide.

So we see in Avatar the natural initiation based process of learning about the cosmos and becoming "one of the people" and one with the universe (one verse). We are reintroduced to the people model standing in strong contrast to the excessive individualism belief/desire model of "I want that rock", and I will kill and enslave all the people to get that rock, if need be.

It is interesting to note, as we contemplate Avatar and it's People vs Rock model, that the founding documents of the United States of America start with the words "We the People". You should note that these words were written by Cultural Humanist men that were students of Classical African Civilization, Kemet (Ancient Egypt/Nubia) i.e. Masons.

As the movie ends and the bad guys (Earthers) are sent back to earth, the "hero" is called a "race" traitor (in Cultural Health language, a Cultural Traitor), we are left to ourselves to think. What has Earth become, a place dominated by the people of the Rock who will come back to fight for rocks another day? Is Earth run by the of humans of the People, in a Global Village that will punish the evil Rock people?

What ever the answer, I am sure the squeal with give it to us with its now legendary new Genre that I call Cultural Literacy entertainment. Roots revolutionize TV ratings with this hard to pull off Genre. Last but not least I would like to alert you to one more big movie coming from this big box office Genre, The Last Pharaoh, by Will Smith, Staring Will Smith. Is it possible that the Last Pharaoh will be bigger then Roots and Avatar? I will see you back here after the movie and lets see.

Last but not least, here is a place to Avatarize yourself.

Pioneering African American Actress, Singer and Civil Rights Activist Lena Horne, 92, Dies

Pioneering African American Actress, Singer and Civil Rights Activist Lena Horne, 92, Dies: "Lena Horne enjoyed a six-decade singing career on stage, television and in film. She was the first black woman to be signed to a long-term contract by a major Hollywood studio. She helped break racial boundaries by acting alongside white entertainers, but she was segregated on screen so producers could clip out her singing when the movies ran in the South. In the 1950s, she was blacklisted in part because of her friendship with Paul Robeson and W.E.B. Du Bois. In 1963, Lena Horne took part in the March on Washington alongside Harry Belafonte and Dick Gregory and was part of a group, which included authors James Baldwin and Lorraine Hansberry, that met with Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy to urge a more active approach to desegregation. We air a rare 1966 interview with Lena Horne from the Pacifica Radio Archives and speak to her biographer, James Gavin."

Wild Police attack Latino American (Video)

What can only be described as wild criminally insane Seattle police viciously attack an innocent Latino American youth is caught on video. The Video's owner says Fox news tries to suppress video.

Let's Go to the Video Tape

Full story and Discussion

Now that you have seen the video you, no doubt, are as outraged as the Mexican American community and all Americans of good will. There are five things that need to happen in my opinion.

1. The two criminal cops that stomped on the innocent citizen should be immediately arrested and placed in jail to protect the public.

2. The Officers who were on the scene and failed to arrest the criminal cops on the spot, should be fired for dereliction of duty and/or aiding and abetting a crime.

3. The police chief who failed to watch the tape, failed to arrest the criminal officers and fire those cops that aided and abetted the crime should be immediately fired.

4. A Latino American Police chief should be appointed with a public commitment to clean out this bad barrel of anti-humanist cops.

5. At the trial the community should receive justice and the injured party should sue the draws off the police department and the city.

First they came for Rodney King, than Arizona came for the Latino American community, now this, next, it will by you or your child.

Any cop who does a crime, should get twice the TIME!

Rules for Growing African American or Ethnic Hair

Most hair care products have chemicals in them that are bad for you health. This is just a start, be warned Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)/ Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) : A cheap foaming and thickening agent that strips African American or Ethnic hair of moisture and causes skin and scalp irritation. 95% of all hair
shampoos contain this ingredient or a derivative. Avoid it completely; TEA lauryl is just as bad, if not worse. Do not be fooled by the use of the word TEA. Shampooing African American or Ethnic hair with a product that contains these can lead to the absorption of excessive nitrates."
