Well, one could claim that at root of this post traumatic slavery stress disorder is the lack of knowing of African history, other than the history for slavery, which is a parallel and reference only time for most, in what they know of. To most of the people you've described, they this common sense of African history.<quoted text>EXACTLY!!! I have seen a black girl literally run out of a public school system by the blacks because she was so academically successful. Her parents literally had to withdraw her from high school and send her to private school to keep her from being murdered. I have seen and experienced Black rejection because if you make good grades it means youre not proud to be black. It is easier to stand up to racism if it is coming from outside but when it is your OWN rejecting you as a member you can either accept the terms or walk away. That is why I say the African American educational problem is due to the African American community and not "whitey" or "post traumatic slavery stress disorder" or whatever that was about.
Second we could ask ourselves, from where does this primary lack of education comes? After tens of years of misfitted teachings in history. Teaching white superiority and black inferiority. Is it whitey? So we first need to understand what happened during slavery, in order to understand certain behaviorism in this downstream. Usually traumatic experiences are being reduced by proper guidance and training. If this doesn't happen one could easily pass on his/ here experiences to the next generation. We can conclude that none of this ever occurred in AAM's when it comes the history of slavery.
But in order to rebut the psychologist his thesis, you first need to know and understand his claims. I've heard him talk, and his statements are well founded and grounded. There was a white psychologist who called in, and acknowledged his thesis as well.
