If you go back over my videos one of the statements I made was that the family belongs to the Black woman, and that culture is the child of man. Now I won't go into a lenghty description of what I mean here ( I probably will be ranting about this idea on my video anyway, so check it out). The Black woman holds the most important position in our culture. She is the guardian of the family, now for many of you who have come up through the west Asian process will find this hard to stomach. According to the dominant culture that is molding the minds of people here in America, woman are relegated to the lowest rung of society, and like good slaves (male & female) we do as our master demonstrates. We look at the woman and see no value or power within her, but the fact is that the woman holds the pivotal role in our and all cultures. The woman gives birth to, and raises the future of the people. She is the player that holds the family structure together and brings order into the life of the children so that they can grow up and participate in the culture. She molds and shapes the mind of the young, even before they are given to the system to be molded and shaped by man. Now being someone that loves to think deeper than the surface, I see that if I eliminate the man but leave the woman in tact then I have a problem for generations. On the other hand if I eliminate the woman, by destroying her role, sense of importance, and drive her crazy I eliminate generations. Each man I destroy, only one man is destroyed, but for every woman I destroy, a group is destroyed, because as I said earlier she is the foundation and guardian of the family.
