White student leads black club at Alexandria high school

Apr. 3, 2012

ALEXANDRIA — Michael Wattendorf, a senior at Northern Virginia's super-selective Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, stood before prospective members of its Black Student Union in the fall and introduced himself as the club's president. The freshmen, Wattendorf recalled, looked a little confused.

"Yes," Wattendorf remembers saying. "I am white."

TJ, as the magnet school is known, has long struggled to boost its African American and Hispanic enrollment. Of the 1,800 students who attended TJ last year, only 34 were black and 42 were Hispanic, school figures show.

"don't have to be black" to join the black student union? two black students ok with a white president? sister lost out to a white boy and is ok with that? hello???

apparently, somebody ain't been reading their history of the black student union movement, eh?

and they want to call this a "progressive" school. yeah, black folks "progressing" right on into obscurity!

this is so much at the heart of why i've started feeling/thinking/saying "step back from black" and "i ain't black; i'm back: i'm an African!"

makes sense.. getting them ready for their reality. they're preparing them for a world where they will be rewarded for their blindness. The more blind--the better. Imagine what theyre being taught in history.. the article said,

"To others, Wattendorf's presidency is a symbol of something else:
Its black students were willing to look beyond race."
"It's a great reflection on the people who voted for me.
They didn't let race be a factor in their voting — they voted on the merits of my ideas,"


Like black folks have ever been the ones NOT willing to look beyond race! .. or accept others! They already have these kids confused as to what racism actually is.. and who the perpetrators are.. and who the victims are. I could, in fact, be argued that black folks continue to be victims in Racist society
precisely because they/we are not willing to impose or elevate their/our own truth.. our own rendition of history over the abstract deceptive double-speak used by the white majority for the sake of the white majority. No man wants to tell his kids he's a murdering thieving rapist whose world is glued together with the blood and bones of indigenous people worldwide. but we cant elevate their desire to ease their own conscious above the intellectual development of our own children.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
