An education or indoctrination?!
A lot people on destee are successful and therefore do not have contact with the "hood". Because I work in allied health there are nurse aides sitting next to RNs who are sitting next to MDs. What black people think blackness is in the lower rungs of income would shock many here. We must first define blackness in a positive light. So yes, education is indoctrination as long as we do not control the content. But even if we did, we have to regain the high standards our ancestors had. Failure to do this will defeat any projects we might set forth on.What do you mean when you say, "As far as Afrocentric education goes, that ship has sailed."?
I believe Afrocentric Education would be the cornerstone of building our collective self-esteem.
