Hello All: 

BROTHER Darrell Davis posted this on Facebook - it is a reprint from an article that appeared in Madame Noire -
I thought it would be an interesting read - and for those who don't subscribe to Facebook, I'm posting it on my blog - Eclectically Black News 

There has been quite a stir raised about this brother after his speech at the BET Awards - and some have doubted his veracity - but it's time to deal with the fact that the brother is real, and he's serious - there is much to learn from what he has to say - we who are old school original Militants, and those who are just beginning to wake up to their inner Blackness.

So, I'm sharing - not making any commentary - this brother can definitely speak for himself.

Algorithms, Heuristics, Software, Applicatioin(s), Program(s, ing), and Code(ing)
These terms have been heard in our lives since the 1960's. Even if you heard these terms in science fiction movies and books. 
But what if these terms could be applied on a human-mental basis. I.E. Racism.
Jessie Williams said, in a video, before he made his famous BET speech.
"If you don't live around Black folks and you just watch tv, you're going to be racist. I'd be racist! It's a mathematical equation. You and the media and a fake ass history system that makes you believe that White people created any of this makes you think that Black people ain't worth a damn. Of course, that's the way the algorithm works. So you need to put an effort forth."
Because when you're privileged and you're a fucking spoiled brat you complain about everything. When you get everything that you want, at all times, you complain when you don't get it. If you're rich and you fly first class for the first twelve years of your life and suddenly you ain't rich no more and you gotta fly coach, you're going to bitch about that. That's going to be uncomfortable. Something was taken from you. The thing is that we're not taking anything from anybody. We're not more violent than anybody. Fact. It's backed up by data. We're not more prone to misbehavior in school, yet we're brought directly into the prison system from suspension at incredibly disproportionate rates. We're not more prone to crime. We are more prone to poverty. And generational poverty is a very real thing. You can't corral an entire segment of the population into ghettos and away from the American dream and wonder why it doesn't look like a Norman Rockwell painting. Why would it be? You've decided that it can't be. Housing discrimination is the biggest fucking secret in this country. The suburbs were invented to uplift White America and to create a middle class and subsidize upward mobility when it was against the law for Black people to get those loans, against the law for Black people to own the actual deed to their homes.
It's a mathematical equation….
that's the way the algorithm works!!!!!!
Is racism a mental program?
A mental, psychological, conditioning by using intellectual programming and coding by using western/euro/American i.e. WHITE CULTURE VALUES in this particular education system?
For Euro cultural values to say about other people of the word..
Christopher Columbus discovered America
American Indians was red devil savages
Africans was primitive cannibals and that white people's slavery civilized them.
Chinese was backward
Indian people was slow
Depicted in movies, tv, and cartoons
Cause the brain to automatically be programmed into racism?
Non whites are: sub-species, & sub-categories
To give details attention to the intellectual European values says about themselves…
The Greeks invented philosophy.
Ancient Egyptians was dark skinned Caucasians
Jesus was white
American was about freedom and justice
Our court system is about fairness
The Europeans advance philosophy, psychology, science,
America is God's country
What does that do the individual person in their thinking…of the dominant and of the oppressed group???
I've done a little research in American history and found that everything that white people are saying about blacks and all of the so-called problems that black people have and so call problems that black people cause (which blacks are not causing) are the same things that white people said about Jews, Native Americans, Irish, Aboriginals, Japanese, and Chinese.
To expose any human being to inhumane conditions…illiteracy, poor education, under funded programs, the results will automatically be violence mental problems, not because of ethnicity but because of the racist dominate rulings of those in authority in any given society.
So white culture values being applies in our society absolutely demands for those that are oppressed…to be labeled, and treated (programmed and valued) as uneducated, stupid, lazy, not worth the time, crazy, illogical, emotionally unstapled, etc, etc, etc. Not because these other humans have any actual lack in their human values but that the racist program demands those lacks to happen!!!
But what if those that are in the oppressed group reject the dominant value system' and reject those in, and that benefits from, the dominant value system???
The dominant group value(s) is that of compliance from those of the oppressed group that refuses to comply.
Would the oppressed group feel a sense of relief? YES!
Would the oppressed group feel and gain a new sense of self-worth, and self-value? YES!
Would the dominant group feel a sense of utter confusion because the oppressed group is now using a value system that does not affirm the dominant?
And, this is the kicker, the dominant group cannot think outside their own value system! Their own racist value system forbids them of thinking outside their own box'.
Don't call American education white education' or Eurocentric . Just call it education'.
European traditional music…classical music (the work class' is in the term)
White European painters…THE MASTERS!
Literature: Hemingway, T.S. Elliot, Browning, Yates, Jane Austin, etc, etc, etc.
Philosophy: Plato, Socrates, Kierkegaard, etc, etc, etc.
Science: Einstein, Newton, Darwin, Hawkins, etc, etc, etc.
Fashion: Vogue, GQ, Cosmopolitan, etc, etc, etc.
If you read only white-eurocentric books, and that is soooo easy to do, you will be called: intellectual, sophisticated, and erudite.
The oooo's and aaaa's' will be coming your way of utter admiration.
But if you take the blue pill??
If you become…black conscious?
Be afrocentric?
Become non-euro in your values?
Learn REAL history! Learn the REAL origins of the American police (slave patrols)
I dare you! See what happens!!!
See how people begin to treat you, look at you, and think about you!
See how your family, co-workers, and friends will reveal (hidden racism) themselves to you!
Watch how many people that you socialized on a daily basis was soooo racist or just plain ignorant and happy to be so that you was never aware of?
And even more painful for white people, how much YOU were ignorant. How much YOU were unconsciously racist.
Things that you have said will come back to haunt you. Things that you did not understand will become blaringly clear.
The black people that you call friend was because you saw them through your white values and they, by your white values, was ok. Your black friends were agreeable by your white values.
"I don't see you as black…I see you as my friend and intelligent!"
The I DON"T SEE YOU AS BLACK.' is the dead giveaway Freudian slip of white people seeing a black person, psychologically, as an honorary white person'. A black person that affirms, or at least is not a threat, to dominant white cultural value that's inside white people's minds, UNCONSCONIOUSLLY!! (Silent Racism)
And just how black people, that you call friend' do not (AND WILL NEVER) tell you white people what we really think. 
(I've listed some books in this article. If you want white people, with white values, to admire you...DO NOT READ THE BOOKS THAT I'VE LISTED!!! LMAO!)
For blacks to become conscious we must go through the "JUST HOW MUCH WE WAS LIED TO…ABOUT…EVERYTHING, ordeal!!!!
How black people was brainwashed to apologize for being black.
YouTube: Mellody Hobson Unapologetically Black'
(She is the wife of Star Wars' George Lucas)
Morpheus: The Matrix is everywhere, it is all around us, even now in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window, or you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else, you were born into bondage... born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison for your mind.

Whiteness Studies
These books are designed to disrupt the racist program, the racist algorithms that was given to us in and by the school so-called educational SYSTEM.
If our education were of real education these books would have been included as source materials for our textbooks from the time public education was implemented. 
An application is any program , or group of programs, that is designed for the end user 
An algorithm is a set of steps to follow intended to solve a specific problem. Mathematical equations are algorithms; so are computer programs. The service people who fix copying machines and other office or household equipment are trained to use a series of tests in a particular sequence that quickly identify the problem. These tests are designed to isolate the problem by a step-by-step elimination of things that do not contribute to the problem. Unless the problem is extremely unusual, this system quickly and successfully identifies the cause of the problem. Discovering an effective algorithm for a problem usually improves solutions -- sometimes quite dramatically -- to the problems to which it applies.
Algorithms are closely related to the kind of logical thinking skills you through schooling. They are like an applied version of deductive reasoning, which usually apply to more technical tasks. People use heuristics much more frequently in every-day life. A heuristic is a mental short cut or "rule of thumb" that gives some guidance on how to do a task, but it does not guarantee solutions consistently. They often reflect some form if inductive reasoning
Heuristics can be very effective, but they can lead to completely incorrect conclusions, as well. Hitting a machine, like a computer, to make the screen work may reconnect a loose connection. But it works only when something like a loose connection is causing the problem, and it can damage the equipment. The following paragraphs describe several heuristics and some problems resulting from their uncritical use
Difference Between Algorithm and Heuristic
An algorithm is a set of well-defined instructions for carrying out a particular task. It must be sound and complete. That mean it must gives you the correct answer and it must works for all cases. Usually, an algorithm is predictable, deterministic, and not subject to chance. An algorithm tells you how to go from point A to point B with no detours, no side trips to points D, E, and F, and no stopping to smell the roses or have a cup of Joe.
A heuristic is a technique that helps you look for an answer. Its results are subject to chance because a heuristic tells you only how to look, not what to find. It doesn't tell you how to get directly from point A to point B; it might not even know where point A and point B are. In effect, a heuristic is an algorithm in a clown suit. It's less predictable, it's more fun, and it comes without a 30-day, money-back guarantee.
Here is an algorithm for driving to someone's house: Take Highway 167 south to Puyallup. Take the South Hill Mall exit and drive 4.5 miles up the hill. Turn right at the light by the grocery store, and then take the first left. Turn into the driveway of the large tan house on the left, at 714 North Cedar.
Here's a heuristic for getting to someone's house: Find the last letter we mailed you. Drive to the town in the return address. When you get to town, ask someone where our house is. Everyone knows us-someone will be glad to help you. If you can't find anyone, call us from a public phone, and we'll come get you.

In what appears to be an impromptu, street interview, actor Jesse Williams talks racism, insecure White folks & Hollywood's…
