5 Signs Showing You May Suffer From ‘Mental Slavery’ by Dr. Amos Wilson

amos-wilson1 - CopyThe shackles of chattel slavery were removed over a century ago, and legislation has been passed to relinquish the legal chains that bound Blacks in the Americas to a slave master’s balance sheets along with oxen, farm equipment and other tangible assets. However, no outside actions can remove the mental slavery that occurred, was passed down, and remains with modern-day Blacks today.

Yet many African descendants are in denial of the long-lasting affects of the traumatically brutal institution. They often assert that slavery happened long ago, it has nothing to do with them, and Black people should get over it and take advantage of the ‘freedoms’ now available to them. However, the emotional and psychological damage caused by the Transatlantic slave trade was so severe, many people today still struggle to ‘get over it.’

Dr. Amos Wilson (February 23,1941 – January 14, 1995), a former Professor of Psychology at the City University of New York, would argue that only a systematic correction in consciousness can help Black people, who were taught to think as slaves, to truly escape bondage. In one of his lectures, the renowned author who penned books such as “The Developmental Psychology of the Black Child,” posed five simple questions to those who believe otherwise. If  Wilson’s questions are answered truthfully, they reveal the slave mindset still within most of us.

  1. People will acknowledge these signs until you get to #4, they love some White Jesus and to make it worse there are those that love some Black Jesus based on a description written by people that existed centuries AFTER he supposedly lived and not by anyone that has ever seen him.

  2. Adriane Harris says:

    I dont know why I took the time to read this, probably from a frustrated unhappy black man not grateful for his skin, condemning the practices of a community that he unwillingly belonged to. Lucky for him, since he didnt believe in Jesus he live a very short life dying at the age of 54, getting to go spend an eternity with his god, I'm sure that satisfied his soul.

  3. Melissa Lewis says:

    I see where he was trying to go with this– but for my generation, this is just apart of growing up in America. These questions can be applied to any immigration group in the US and apply as 'slave mentality'.

  4. Fats Awakened says:

    Everything is on point!

  5. Adriane Harris You are aperfect example, Dr. Wilson spoke about, and it is true, you are living proof, along with others in the millions.

  6. I disagree. African people are the only group, who act like they never had their own culture, our indigenous names, language, sprituality. Everything we do were forced upon us by whites. I get the feeling blacks think we just came on the scene when they kidnapped us and brought us to America. May I suggest we learn our history, from black historians. Become your true self, because you are not what you are suppose to be. The creator did not create you the way you are. You were created by white people. Your mind is not an African mind. Peace sister.

  7. Adriane Harris says:

    Nzingha Shabaka it is of my opinion that such small minded folk are unhappy in the skin God blessed you with, such as yourself and this dead unfortunate soul.

  8. Lenise Mobley-El says:

    What he saying is the Truth which was actually taken time out & planned to keep effecting us with no intentions of ever being free physically. @Adrienne its sad to hear that you are the perfect example of the product they set out to create & you & millions of other generation to generation are lost souls in denial. .

  9. Patreinnah Acosta-Pelle says:

    It is so amazing to that many who will read this will become offended, angered, and even upset at the fact that plenty African Descendents are still doing this today. Queen Mother Moore named this condition as psychoneurosis. Language, Name, Food, Religion, & Dress are indicators, according to this article the continued existence of slavery. I suggest that before making judgements, feeling discontentment, we take the time to consider the possiblities that we still do suffer on some levels…

  10. Tonja Benton says:

    We must know who we are in CHRIST first because before race color, creed etc…we are human beings. Black ppl must stop embracing the stereotype. Many have accepted and want to be the ignorant, pant sagging, babymomma/daddy, deadbeat etc. They take pride in it. That's wjy THE LORD says pride is a sin cause its puffed up, boastful and foolish. Black ppl have been conditioned so long to feel down about themselves and to exalt others that they don't know anything else. Don't get me wrong ,i love my ppl, but one of the most valuable lessons that JESUS has shown me is that we all are created equal and i live by that. So i don'f seek approval and accolades of this world because JESUS justified me and i know i'm much more than the limits of the stereotype.

  11. Demitra Howard-Holley says:

    I have been saying this for years. We went from physical bondage to psychological bondage. If we were enslaved for 300+ years, then how many generations had to endure? Our kids have no knowledge of their history, and we act as if it never existed…because we have failed to acknowledge our history, which in essence is America's history, it has now manifested into modern-day, mental slavery.

  12. Simply put, you can take a horse to water but you can't make it drink. You can take a man to knowledge but you can't make him think. LOL!

  13. Theresa 'Tammie' Parrott says:

    Read history, African people existed before Jesus, Lord, Christ, Mohamad was ever thought about. The problem is African people and the descendents of Africa people don't know history.

    African people were spiritual people not religious. The were more intune with Native Americans. They worshipped the sun, animals and the spirit of their ancestors. Christianity and Islam was taught to African people by the Greeks, Romans and Europeans. Islam was taught by the Arabs. It's called indoctrination. Did you know the first slave ship that brought Africans from West Africa was called the Good Ship Jesus? When they were dropped off in Brazil, America and the rest of the Caribbean, they were Muslims. The slave owners taught them Christianity. Do you really believe after the way they were treated (animals were treated better then the slaves), the slaveowners wanted to do this one good thing for the slave, which is teach them Christianity? Really? It was a brainwashing tool. The slaveowners took their names, language, faith and replaced it with everything European. Black people always talking about the King James version of the bible. Do you know who King James was? They wrote that bible in the 15th century, in England. What were the Europeans doing to the people of Africa in the 15th century, what were the Arabs doing to Africans in the 15th century? Most of us were born into Chrisitanity because that's what our grandparents and parents were taught. It was passed from generation to generation. Some split off and went back to Islam. You're indoctrinated in man made religion that has nothing to do with you.

    But to each there own, as long as you are happy that's all that counts. But it's sad that here we are in the 21st century and we as black people continue to indoctrinate our kids in this nonsense and not teach them the truth.

  14. Tonja Benton says:

    Theresa, that's all fine but our ppl still don't know who they are, JESUS was here since time began cause the WORD was with GOD and was GOD and many black ppl still have slave mentality and need permission and approval from the world and love living the stereotype and i still love em to def but they gotta realize they are way better than what the so called "powers that be" and much of society deem them. We are ALL human before anything…thus equal. That goes for oprah, obama, brad pitt, george clooney, to the homeless man on the corner and until we really grasp that truth, things will remain as is.

  15. Tonja Benton says:

  16. Ladyb Talley-Belcher says:

    I like this.

  17. Theresa 'Tammie' Parrott I think blacks need to do the research on king james, they need to ask themselves, before going around quoting from his writings, who he was. Celebrating st partick day, check him out while you are at it. If it will make black people feel good, I did the research on Ham of the bible, Ham was born 1209 AD, and what I am saying is, they need to go find a more convincing lie about blacks being Hamatic people, because we were here millions of years before Ham, in other words, he was a real Johnny Come Lately after African people. Really, where did we get this Godly hair from, do they think God made a mistake giving us our hair? Blackness (black skin) is a devine cosmic principle of the universe. I love my black self, and black people, we just need to repair so many of us.

  18. Demitra Howard Holley Our history started long before, the crimes that were committed against African people, for 400 years in America. We have a glorious history before the colonizers, rapist, enslavers, mass murderers, of African people came to Africa, where all black people are from, Africa. I am quoting here, and this is the truth, "History tells a people where they have been, and what they have been, where they are and what they are. Most importanttly, an understanding of history tells a people where they still must go, and what they still must be". End of quote. I also wish to say, African people's glorious history, was old, before any other people inhabit the earth, I am talking a long time, my son says millions of years ago. We were progressing mighty fine, before they came to get us, and took mama Africa from us. Sure your children need to be taught about the crimes of slavery, and to help their self esteem from being damaged, you should teach them, our glorious history first, then the crimes that caused a break in our progress, especially if they are young. It is always the crimes committed against us, and that we were held as slaves, we did not go into it willingly. Yes, please, teach the children their true history.

  20. Theresa 'Tammie' Parrott says:

    Nzingha Shabaka…I agree with you about reading the writings of black historians. Scholar Dr. John Henrik Clark was amazing, but the majority of black people don't know who he was. He spent his entire adult life researching African history. Not suprising because the powers silenced every black man who stood up to teach black people the truth. Today, some black people don't believe anything that the white didn't teach them or approve of. They are so afraid of making them feel uncomfortable. This country was built on the basis of violence, racism and greed. The sooner blacks realize and acknowledge it, the better off we will be. It is what it is! We didnt create the history, it was here when we all came into the world. Yes, we are all human beings on this earth before anything else. No man was created to be in control of other human beings, man created that mindset.

    We better wake up and fast. The dollar is the reserve currency of the world and it ain't worth ish! Throughout history every empire fell, the US is no different. Pay attention to world affairs, because it will affect you. Sitting by silently while all this inhumane treatment of other humans is happening today and out of all ethnic groups, we are silent. It is imperative we teach our children real history.

  21. Theresa 'Tammie' Parrott says:

    Tonya Benton…I agree with you about the sagging pants etc. That's why I don't agree with putting Bob Johnson on a pedestal. He was the first black man to own a cable channel, BET. What did he do? He filled it with negative content geered towards black youth. Yes, he made a lot of money but I feel that the spirit and souls of our youth should not be for sale. Congresswoman C Delores Tucker did something the NAACP, SCLC, Urban League, Push, didn't do which was challenge the record labels. Many black people such as myself, disconnected cable all together because we saw the damage BET was doing, dumbing down our children. These organizations was taking money from corporate america, who knew exactly what they were doing. As long as these organizations was getting money, they had control over what they could say or what they couldn't say. Today, these organizations are begging for money for programs to clean up the mess they help create. Going to president with a black agenda, it's a joke. The president glorify JayZ and Beyonce. Has he listened to JayZ's lyrics? Beyonce on stage half naked with her legs opened? What kind of image is that for black people. Oh, I forgot, they have money, so that makes it ok?

    Nobody ever talk about Ronald Regan, CIA and Freeway Rick Ross. How the black community was intentionally targeted for an influx of drugs and guns. Actually it goes back to Richard Nixon. The influx of drugs and guns into the black community was no coincidence, it was done by design. Today, black men fill the prisons for drug crimes, but suddenly the legalization of weed is the battle cry. White folks are not making mad cash selling weed legally. The phamacuetical companies are the biggest drug dealers in the US pushing prescription drugs. The entire system is wack, but it's done by design and black people continue to eat the cheese in the trip. Suddenly the Obama administration is speaking out on the black school to prison pipeline. They didnt say one word about it until Rand Paul started talking about it. It's all about politics. The democratic party has never said anything about it. As a matter of fact, they went along with it. Now that Rand Paul is talking about it, their focused on it, for now, but after the election in November it will be put on the backburner, until we approach the 2016 presidential election where they will be looking for the black vote to elect Hilary Clinton. She can't win without the black vote. Don't believe the hype. They will have all the black so called leaders pushing their agenda. We have to learn how to use the cards we have in our hand. Beware of the black leaders they send to talk to you. Just because they are black dont mean they have your back!

    Notice how they are pushing charter schools. They are privatizing education for black children. Putting their education in the hands of corporate america. It's not good.

    At this point, we can't blame white people or anyone else for what is happening. The ball is in our court and we are not playing the game to benefit us. We must start thinking for ourselve and not allow the power that be think for us or dictate to us. We are a sleeping people, time to wake up!

  22. Melissa Lewis says:

    Nzingha Shabaka, While I agree that everyone has a right and to an extent a responsibility to know their history, I do not think it is important to take on those lost qualities. I can understand and appreciate my history while standing in my own truth. My truth is the name my mother and father gave me. It's Grecian but I appreciate the effort they put in naming me. My truth is that I am African American, my ancestors were slaves, but I was born in Germany and grew up in America. My understanding of my truth is that my ancestors are more than likely a wide mix of different tribes and cities and communities from the West coast of Africa. And those communities' lives and traditions were just as varied as they are today– if not more so. I know that I can not change my history or my upbringing. But I can embrace and acknowledge both. I am who I was meant to be because it has happened. I do think there are still far reaching effects of slavery on the African American community– it's been less than 200 years since it's been abolished. And we as a community need a defining history to rally behind other than slavery. But we also need to recognize and accept that our history is no longer as collective as present day Africans– and that's okay too.

  23. Giovanny Cano says:

    emancipate yourselves from mental slavery; no one but ourselves can free our minds!! Bob Marley said it best!!!

  24. All of this does not tell me how I am still mentally enslaved. I know nothing of my african ancestry or their gods. I chose Jesus on my own, knowing that the Bible says he has copper skin and the pictures are white. This hasnt changed my belief. And whether my name is Toby or Kunta, what actions I choose, what education I get and offer to my child, what attributes I choose to contribute to society as a whole….my name and where it came from is irrelevant. I exist today and yesterday doesnt. Teach me my history in truth and show me what positive I can take from it. But dont tell me I am mentally enslaved because I eat the food my grandmothers taught me, I also eat pasta does that make me italian?

  25. Demitra Howard-Holley says:

    Well stated, you will get no argument from me. Take care.

  26. this is that "TRUTH"!!!

  27. Oju Ymani Efunyale says:

    Why not choose to learn about your Afrikan ancestry and Gods? Learn an Afrikan language. abibitumikasa.com is a great place to start with that. Try some Afrikan foods, research Afrikan names and perhaps you will find one that touches your heart. You cant know what might be missing until you explore it to find out. Personally, I have reclaimed all of the above in regards to my Afrikanity, but once I began to study an Afrikan language, its like another world of understanding was opened up to me. It was then that I realized exactly what we lost.

  28. Oju Ymani Efunyale says:

    Adriane Harris You should definitely take the time to study the works of Dr Amos Wilson before you speak ill of him sister. You have no idea who this man was or how prolific his ideas for black people were. Peace

  29. Oju Ymani Efunyale says:

    So then the solution to this problem is…study African cultures;
    1. choose an African name and/or surname for yourself
    2. try some Afrikan foods and learn to cook some dishes
    3. purchase some Afrikan attire and wear it outside – Lapas (wrap skirts) and dashikis are casual enough to wear out no where special
    4. learn to speak an Afrikan language and begin to see the world from its perspective. Its a beautiful experience, trust me (go to abibitumikasa.com – a great language resource)
    5. seek out a traditional Afrikan spiritual system to learn from, there are hundreds of them, they are pretty much the same in concept, just different in expression.

    Doesn't mean you have to abandon all that you know, just seek to learn more about who we were, before we were enslaved. Cant hurt anything to learn right? Knowledge is power!

  30. Oju Ymani Efunyale says:

    Melissa Lewis how will you know if it is important if you dont go back to dig up those lost qualities. How will you know what is missing or if you will even need it if you dont go back to retrieve it. "It is not taboo to go back and fetch what you have lost" ~Sankofa, Adinkra and Ghanaian proverb

  31. Well stated. GD

  32. I'll tell you something, a female friend and a relative went to a psychic playing with their alleged "social freedoms" and had a past-life regression session. They were back in South Africa, and they remembered evrything like it was yesterday.

  33. Erica Benjamin says:

    A few things:
    1. I speak English, it would seem many commenters on this article do too.
    2. My name is Erica…I like my name.
    3. I do NOT eat pig's feet and chitterlings. I DO eat greens and sweet potato pie because I like them, but I also like – and eat – steak, salmon, lamb, and sushi.
    4. I love and worship Jesus Christ the Son of God unashamedly and unapologetically. Though is does not matter, I wouldn't care if he was purple. While the delivery methods/persons have never been perfect, the Word of God is.
    5. I don't wear traditional African clothing, my favorite thing to wear is jeans and a t-shirt.

    I think this article is flawed. The main difference between now and then, is that I have the freedom to do what I please. I could move to Africa. I could learn to speak Swahili. I can wear whatever I want. I have the FREEDOM to make those choices. I could change my name if I wanted to. There are many people who have come from many different countries and could answer these questions in such a way that they, too, would seem to suffer from "mental slavery". Asians, Pacific Islanders, and even Eastern Europeans (especially during the early years of Hollywood), change their names when they come to America. Muslims have changed the way they dress. Everyone learns to speak English. Do we all suffer from "mental slavery"? I don't believe these are proper indicators. Perhaps people who think they have no choice but to live this way are the ones suffering from "mental slavery". Perhaps the ones who think that these are indicators of "mental slaver" are truly those who suffer from it. Thinking in your mind that you are bound, and have no choices beyond what you see in front of you…thinking this is just the way things are and there are no other options…those people are truly enslaved.

  34. Kylie Cook says:

    Carter G.Woodson has a Book out that Explains our Slave Mentality-The Miseducation of the Negro & you Colored people? Mr Muhammad is a Blackman from the Worst State of Georgia like our Brother MLKing Jr. These are the Bravest of our people! Mississippi Alabama Georgia these Devil's killed more of our people than Anybody! A Devil according to the Most Hon.Elijah Muhammad is one who's evil is not confined to one's self it spreads & other's are affected by this Evil The Black & Red Man is the Original victims of this system of Racism Real Talk! Mr Muhammad taught that we are the Root of All Civilizations & the mother's and father's of Humanity! We are Direct Descendants of the Aboriginal Nations of the Planet Earth! Aboriginal is the oldest known Name for Any Black people found on this planet our Home All of it Dummy! As far as Religion goes when we came to America in 1555 they separated the Children from the Parents & Murdered them so the child never knew the mother or the Mother Tongue was from that point a Home Born Slave! Almost 80% of our people taken were Muslim's real Talk and Islam was taken away because most of these crackers were Mason's and outlawed Islam! Christianity was only given to make a Negro a Mental Slave! A Mason is a Muslim's Son in secret The Founding Father's of America were all Mason's Shriners their job is to keep this Blackman Sleep & make sure He never rises! Wake-up Blackman & Woman your time is here & The God is with us but we need to clean-up ASAP

  35. Safiya Ah says:

    Well said Melissa Henry

  36. This is another article trying to police Blackness. What is "mental slavery "is allowing someone to tell you who you are…which is exactly what this article does. Having an African name or speaking a tribal language has nothing to do with mental enslavement. You are a slave when you believe you have to change who you are to prove something. Silly.

  37. idk i feel like fashion as developed considerably separate of both african and white culture which in my opinion symbolizes cultural development and innovation post physical slavery. Now this also in my opinion signifies the ability and potential of african descendants to create a descending culture centered the self image of Black.

  38. Everything else is on point

  39. Rhonda Miller says:

    we suffer on many levels.

  40. Rhonda Miller says:

    i dont know if wareing an eating African will help me …But we would not have to read history if they did nt keep distroying ours.we just lost several generation , the people that should have been here to tell their stories. our community needs stabilization.. Obamas bout to spend Millions on wellness an mental health.(right now in certian states wellness centers are spring up all over european towns an communities, they are preping for the money thats comming down the pike. White wanna be the first to say, SEE OUR PEOPLE SUFFER DEPRESSION AN ANXIETY, we are meditaing an working on spirtual healing, then the government cuts them a million dollar check..(yet dont tell blacks an they get to do the healing work an make it look like they help everyone yet dont let blacks speak about whats going on with them. We need mental ,spiritual healings, not from the church but fromm the soul. Healing can also begin if they stop adding newer ways of black mental entrapment . they know how to create something damaging to distroy many at a time an 30 years later we lost 3 generations.(just one example). they need to stop abusing this particular culture(descendent of the salve). let us heal from one thing before you deal another death lock on the decsendednt of slaves.

  41. I'm so sorry for you.

  42. You are conditioned too! And the worst part is that you don't know it!

  43. Too bad.

  44. Rick Dear says:

    She suffers from cognitive dissonance.

  45. Rick Dear says:

    @Adriane H., it's plain and simple that you also suffers from cognitive dissonance.

  46. Tonja Benton says:

    Hosea 4:6
    KJV
    6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children

    Enough said. I love you all. Get saved before it's too late.

  47. Zondra De'Shea Peters Your comment is sheer nonsense. How can you tell black people learning who they are, and their history is silly? How is changing a white slave holders name to a name that says who you are, is silly? Your name tells anyone who you are, so how is that silly. It is silly to tell a people, who have been denied their history to not seek to learn their history. What kind of name do you have, what language you speak, are they associated with your race? Most people on the earth, know how to speak their indigenous language, and they wear their indigenous name.

  48. Frank Edwards says:

    I was going to find a nice way to point out your inadequacies.

    I changed my mind. You're silly.

  49. this post was much relevant to my appreciation of african identity, it gave me sweet glance of who i am as a black man. Give thanks

  50. Oju Ymani Efunyale I did not type the first 3 words, sister your words are sweet as honey and gentle as GOD's love,bless you. I am with my sisters and brothers from Africa (refugees) daily. I've tasted the love, food, worship, clothing, etc (Muslims and Church) They welcome and treat me with no difference (sadly I don't speak any language after 5 yrs, but oh, if I did I would be like – HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  51. they would call me black american so i say when your baby is born over here will you call that child black or African american you should see their face, I say black is not my DNA, Africa is. I say this land called america that was taken from my mother's father and my dear Grandmother's husband a Blackfoot Indian wasn't done for me nor my father(black man, not blackfoot Indian) then I say look, look, who really is the Americans.funny, so call me a Blackfoot African

    oh wow so simple why wasn't that thought of before :P

  54. Adriane Harris says:

    Frank Edwards, how is it possible to point out someones inadequancies based on their opinion?

  55. Adriane Harris says:

    Nzingha Shabaka I find that a lot of what this man said is based on research, I am assuming, not fact. Although these things have been passed down from generation to generation, calling them the new slave mentallity is an injustice to the memory of actual slaves. Our ancestors where survivors, taken from everything thats familiar and placed in situations where nothing was known, but how to survive, surviving through unimagined horrors. We will never know the scope of the Black Holocaust, we are to busy trying to down play it, we cower at the word slavery, we get obsessed with trying to figure out ways to get passed our history. In actuallity, we were enslaved at the cost of our community, our heritage, our skin. When we truly love to accept this, accept ourselves, accept our past and not feel ashamed of it, accept that the White race didnt demolish us "Spiritualy or any other way". For they were after our souls!

  56. true…it's the truth and I've learned some new things ..knowledge is power…

  57. thank you …how can I find out about my African name? thanks…

  62. very interesting. I havent eaten pork in almost 10 years!! It just occurred to me that the last sign was perfect because, we as a people have excellent style and that style was already in us from africa-just by looking at this beautiful picture.

  63. Thanks for this article. Virtually any article reinforcing any of Dr. Wilson's information is a great help to solving this problem of racism/white domination.

  64. You are so right. But there does have to be some sort of psychoanalytical assistance – from Black psychologists – to help those of us who are really suffering – and there are a large percentage who are – by the same token, we also have a large percentage of African Brothers and Sisters who are suffering from post-colonialism syndrome as well. The roots of rape and racism run deep on both sides of the ocean.
    We often reject each other without understanding why and how that happens.

  65. know young brother his true name was and is Yeshuah..not Jesus the image you have been handed

  66. Barbara Craker says:

    people speak the language of their parents, wear the clothes of their country…nothing wrong with that…I'd be more concerned about the slave traits of beating your children and forcing them into compliance and silence which I have seen with some of the kids I've worked with…free your children with love and education! It's still called a whipping or whupping…do you use a whip? No, masters used one. Religion is your own choice but look at all religion with a fresh eye once in a while…

  67. If I'm not mistaken traditional african attire originated outside our communities as well

  68. TRUTH TO POWER

  69. This write up is rich with facts but lacks a progressive touch! What solutions does the writer propose?? We need forward thinking not lateral thinking.The majority of Africans who live in this era were born into the post-slavery or colonial mentality and are oblivious on the most part to what their traditional ancestral cultures actually looked like.It is hard to turn the hands of time.In the same vein, it makes less sense to give up healthy food and nice clothing or denounce one's name or a sound admonition from the bible simply because these were brought by the White man.That would be unconscious hypocrisy! Also there is no need washing the back of the pot and leaving the inside dirty! there are core pillars on which a free Africa can stand in this era of globalization that transcend resisting or protesting food, religion, clothing and nomenclature.What we need is economic, intellectual, political, and social inter-dependence(not dependence) with a strong sense of unity.On another not, I believe mental slavery is a much deeper and broader phenomenon than the writer can ever imagine.I involves all humans and the solutions to it are beyond the scope of the present article.

    Very enlightening, so very very true.

  71. Jordan Andrew Griggs says:

    I think it would be DISRESPECTFUL to my MOTHER to change my First Name. Now the last name is a different story, but I will choose to keep it because there has been a great legacy of good Black Griggs men and women that I am proud of. Still yet, it wouldn't be disrespectful to change my last name, I just choose to keep it. Now, I hate it when all these "Afrocentric" people always try to say Christianity is the slavemaster's religion and it's forced on us, etc. I don't serve my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ because some white man hit me upside my head and made me do it, I serve him out of CHOICE. He OBVIOUSLY wasn't WHITE, that's why I stray away from hanging any pictures of him. It's a good possibility he was Black, but I can't DEFINITIVELY say he was Black. I can DEFINITIVELY say that he was a Man of Color and he DEFINITELY was not White. Part of the Bible was written in Africa and the Bible contains Black people. According to my knowledge, the Bible contains more Blacks than Whites, so how is it a White man's religion???? Now I love my culture and I love my people. I try to research my African history, but that doesn't mean I have to adopt EVERY SINGLE TENET of African culture. People do have PREFERENCES. I don't mind wearing African clothing for special occasions, but I don't wear them all the time. Mental slavery does still exist, but I'm not sure it's present in the 5 signs of the article.

  72. Rossell L Powell says:

    This information has gone waaay over some folks head
    . Everyone cant be free just like when Harriet Tubman was trying to free her people she had people say " I want to stay massa take care of me" I say if people want to stay on the mental plantation let oh well.

    is this mental slavery or just being an African-American… is it sad I don't know the difference? I'm not offended just curious

  76. So there fore the jewish people would suffer from mental slavery as well as they went through hell I guess one could say. In keeping polite

  77. jesus never exist…..read about OSIRIS ..ACIENT EGYPT GOD AND GODDESS

  78. Idowu Akinjole you are referring to Heru and while I agree with you, you are doing like most people and calling him by the name the Greeks gave him. We don't have to use "their" names, just as we don't have to follow "their" religions.

  79. All this list does is prove that someone needs to come up with a better way to diagnose slave mentality

  80. Idowu Akinjole That doesn't mean that he never existed. It just means some stories about him were stolen.

  81. See #4, or have you done your own independent study about "Jesus"? For instance, have you read the Gospel of Barnabas, the Book of James (Jesus' brother), the Book of Jude (another of "Jesus' biological brothers)? Or have you only read what the white man told you was okay to read?

  82. If you would study Dr. Amos Wilson a lot of your questions would be answered. Some of his lectures are preserved on YouTube. Add to the list Dr. Francis Wessling (if I spelled her name correctly), and Dr Umar Johnson, all psychologists with this particular problem in mind: and maybe even Dr Wesley Muhammad, if you can get past his religious views. One major problem is that the majority of our people don't study, read, listen to the scholars that look like us, that have a vested interest, and who, just as in any field, have to maintain excellence in order to succeed. "On another not(e), I believe mental slavery is a much deeper and broader phenomenon than the writer can ever imagine." How condescending! How naive! Get your study on quick! You're just at the tip of the iceberg. Spend a few hours listening to Dr Amos…

  83. Christianity as practiced today is the 'white man's religion" because what is taught is Roman religion and what the Romans and Europeans had to say about "Jesus" (including his name). So unless you are reading The Gospel of Barnabas, the Book of James ( Jesus' biological brother) or the Book of Jude (another of Jesus' biological brothers), you're only practicing Constantine's, King James' religion, European "versions" put together for their benefit long after "Jesus" was gone. Or in your case, the "white mans religion" in black face. Care to step outside the box?

  84. How about African European?
