Black PECC: Black People Economic & Cultural Control is an organization I ran into "on accident". I saw a flier on my son's father's refrigerator for this radical list of principles and values that I totally agreed with and thought were necessary for Black people to be a more governing body in their own lives. I then attended the meeting and soon learned that it was a called for black men to come together to "get their ish together". Nonetheless my Universal brother Carl warmly invited me and welcomed my observance of the meeting. He informally elected me as Queen Mother of the organization and approved my distribution of the information he shares with the group. Therefore, I will periodically be sharing some snippets of the newsletter of the organization and encourage you to reach out for more information. Enjoy! (Be advised: there are curse words used)
BLACK PEOPLE ECONOMIC AND CULTURAL CONTROL
BLACK PECC is a BLACK family based concept that uses education, and (our story) to reconnect black people to our culture so that we can begin to control the culture, politics, and economics of our community. So our children can learn from our examples of group control.
CONCEPTS, AND PRINCIPLES INCLUDE:
Black People, we are in a war and we have been in a war.
We have been programmed.
We have been punked.
We have dropped the ball.
We have been MIA.
We have lost our way.
Wars are fought on many fronts; physical confrontation is usually the last resort.
The main battlefield for war is in the mind, and spirit.
Spiritually, if I can get you to trade your GOD for my GOD, then the war is pretty much over. Mentally, if I can get you to trade your way of thinking for my way of thinking (in which case you will be out of your mind, because I'm in it.) the war is pretty much over too. When 98% of the businesses in your community are controlled by others you are in an economic war. When 70% of your women walk around with Euro-hair, and 80% of your young men want to sag and show their ass, you are in a mental war. When other ethnic groups are serving you your ethnic food you are in a cultural war. When your groups' money constantly enhances the lifestyles of another groups' community, you are in a socio-economic war. When we don't get an invitation, we think we are not in a war. You can be in a war and not be invited.
