Submitted by The Anonymous Constituent – What happened to the Black Conscious Community andour Movement? Have We Forgotten the Work Left By Our Ancestors and Predecessors?
These questions will certainly draw some fire and rightfully so, however we cannot afford to overlook their importance here.
If we are conscious (cognizant, conscientious, empathetic, altruistic) beings we want to be accurate about our assertions so we try to build on this premise. In some of our renderings here we would rather be wrong because the outcome may be frightening if not apocalyptic.
Aside from the legacy of slavery, COINTELPRO derailed us. It left us suspicious and paranoid of one another and also deepened a wound that we believed was healing. Even as precursors meritorious manumission, disinformation campaigns and pogroms of eugenics and dehumanization that are still part and parcel of the long term agenda to divide and destroy, COINTELPRO derailed us.
