TKC MUST READ!!! UMKC MLK LECTURE EXPLAINS CONTROVERSIAL 'POST TRAUMATIC SLAVE SYNDROME' THEORY!!!



At the outset of Black History Month in Kansas City, the proponent of a divisive theory took the stage at the city college.

Highlights from the U-News . . .

Internationally renowned social researcher, educator and author Joy DeGruy spoke to a packed house about the need for healing Tuesday at UMKC’s annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Lecture Series.

DeGruy’s work is based on her controversial theory called Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome, which has been implemented by major institutions like Oxford University, Harvard University and Morehouse College.

DeGruy emphasized the impact slavery has on both the oppressed and the oppressor. Furthermore, there is a cognitive dissonance when it comes to the behavior of oppressing an entire group of people, said Dr. DeGruy.

She says people can start the healing process of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome by being honest and not holding in secrets about the past.

Of course, part of the healing process recommended is a continued conversation . . . And possibly more paid guest lectures.

Like it or not, what's important about this teachable moment isn't a knee-jerk reaction from boring right-wing blowhards but a glimpse of the DOMINANT discourse in local academia as more students from various working-class backgrounds start to question the value of a university education altogether.

You decide . . .

It's no secret that UMKC is like a 3rd choice school for most students at best.

Totes worth $20,000 a semester.

^^^ Not quite.

Not that I advise anyone to learn a trade because that line of work is mostly outsourced to lower wage immigrants "dreamers" as well.

Good luck

Fuck Black History Month. Who gives a fuck about exploring how they devolved from being polite useful plantation workers to loud white-hating ungrateful spoiled welfare dependent worthless leeches on society

I wouldn't say this theory was dominant. It's just social justice sociology that distracts otherwise productive students from training that will actually find them work.

Dr. Joy DeGruy, a black woman - Author, Lecturer and Assistant Professor, travels the country holding Seminars, very well attended (and lucrative) explaining her theory of how EVERY PERSON OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN DESCENT IS SUPPRESSED AND KEPT FROM ADVANCING BY THE INHERENT RACISM OF AMERICAN SOCIETY.

Again, a Black Woman, PhD., Author, and successful Lecturer, says EVERY African-American is a victim and CANNOT ADVANCE.

HOLY SHINOLA!

If there already is a "Black Monday" holiday in January and Kwanza is in January why can't Black History Month be in January. When is Irish History Month or Italian History Month and most importantly Native American Month etc. etc.. Hell we stole the land from them.

Hard to overestimate the uselessness of this kind of drawing-room racial propaganda. It does absolutely zero to improve the life of any black people except those who get paid for spouting it. It offers zero solutions to real structural problems in black communities. Worst of all, it has nothing to say about generational poverty or the failure of social programs to address it.

The fees are good, though, I'm sure. What a grift.

Also ignores the fact that only 110,000 (1.7%) of the 6.5 million Africans brought as slaves across the Atlantic came to what is now the U.S. (About 1/3 of the number that went to what is now Mexico).

Of course, those others went to such "paradises" as Brazil (54%, avg. life expectancy 6 months), various Caribbean Islands (32%, avg. life expectancy 2 years), and the rest to South American countries.

True, those places (except Brazil) freed the few slaves that survived forty years before the U.S. did, but that still doesn't explain how they managed to thrive and increase under the HORRORS of U.S. slavery.

Perhaps the PTSD was a result of all the Slave Raids that White Men perpetrated upon Proud Africans living in the Mud Hut Paradise that was sub-Saharan Africa, but since there WEREN'T any such Raids and they were ALL captured and sold by Other Africans, it's beyond me why only U.S. African-Americans are damaged by Racism.

Maybe there has never been any racism in such "wonderlands" as Brazil and Cuba, right Doc?

Get over it, we are all humans. Minorities want everyone to get along but continue to remind everyone they are different. You cannot be equal if you think you need special treatment all the time. This Dr. should look into the horrible example current black "entertainment" feeds her depressed population. Charity begins at home.

Post traumatic slave syndrome? I thought slavery ended over a hundred years ago, more progressive whiny ass b.s. to make excuses for a worthless ass race of subhumans

Post traumatic slave syndrome?? Healing?? Black people need to get it straight that it was their own country who sold them into slavery, not only to the white man, but also Arab countries.

That was how many decades ago?

You want healing? Find out what really happened!

So for nefroes, healing is to do absolutely no work and live off welfare and then whine about how oppressed they are.

Buying those people from their friends is the worst deal this country ever made. I can understand them being upset about being taken from their Homeland and brought here. So the best thing for us to do is load their asses on a boat and send them back.

^^^Excellent point!!! and unless you are 100% Native American, the same to you. Where can we send your punk ass?

Why am I fairly certain that the Star's Jenee was in attendance for this performance enabling failure by American Blacks?

There are now an endless cadre of Race/Diversity/Inclusion consultants who crisscross the nation peddling one excuse after another to encourage and enable susceptible Blacks to regard themselves as "perma-victims" in a racist society.

Might as well surrender, without even trying to be self-supporting, because the game of life is rigged against you by an invisible conspiracy called "institutional racism." Never mind that millions of foreign immigrants who can't pass as White have come to the United States and thrived under difficult conditions.

Do you think Black leadership like Sylvester James, Emanuel Carwash, and Gwen Grant prefer to see Black residents empowered and successful, or trapped and reaching out to them for answers?

And I'll even bet the "R" word was mentioned. Reparations
