”The thing about black history is that the truth is so much more complex than anything you could make up.”
– Henry Louis Gates
The book PowerNomics was written by Claud Anderson back in 2000 it analyzes the complex web of racial monopolies and Black America’s inappropriate behavior patterns that are driving it into a permanent underclass status. Dr. Anderson proposes new concepts that teach Blacks new ways to see, think, and behave in race matters. This book is a process to change how we were abused, programmed and minimized as human being, and it clearly focuses on solution to address the Post Traumatic Slave disorder that Dr Joy DeGruy has been talking about for years.
Are we listening? or has America watered down or information dissed this in-depth knowledge so we would not change, grow, learn, develop, work together. We as Black lives matter and America come back with all lives matter. Can we not just say we matter because you are killing us like dog or worse less than dogs. Because if they were killing dog the way black are treat, the world would be in an uproar. Not for Black, okay only for a minute, now their are back to normal. They appease us with momentary concerns that dies faster than superluminal sound (a speed greater than light). Yes we are educated, knowledgeable and in-depth in social, economical, finical and spiritual thing of this world. I am a black man and I developed, own, created, maintain and manage this site.
Now lets talk about PowerNomics.
The book PowerNomics is the package of principles and strategies he developed to explain the concept of race and to offer a guide for Black America to become a more economically and politically competitive group in America. The National Plan to Empower Black America” not only give a blueprint for empowerment but also reflects his past entrepreneurial experiences, his academic research, business experience, and his varied political positions. Anderson created the concept of PowerNomics and is broken down in his book “PowerNomics: The National Plan to Empower Black America, a plan to teach Blacks how to pool resources and aspects of power so that they can produce, distribute, and consume in a way that creates goods and wealth. Anderson feels Black Americans need to harness their buying power to better improve their community, okay now he is just talk about black wealth exchange sociality www.blwes.com.
“Black Americans made extraordinary contributions to American society despite the astonishing, unusual and unconscionable treatment they have endured in America. Blacks were the engines that drove the political-economic development of this nation for centuries. They should, therefore, value their exceptionality and let that sense of worth, guide their group behavior. They should require that any business, political party or political candidate who seeks or benefits from Black support, always identify Blacks by name, commit and in reciprocity, deliver tangible, measurable benefits to Black Americans.
The late rapper Nipsey Hussle “followed Dr. Claud Anderson’s PowerNomics Principles, ‘building and buying the block,’ the real solution to combating the ill effects of gentriﬁcation in major cities across America that displace Blacks daily, even, for some, becoming homeless while working a job,” wrote Dr. Rosie Milligan, author of Black America Faces Economic Crisis, in the Pasadena Journal. You need to get the Book “PowerNomics” by Dr Claud Anderson. But with that said i would like to provide a short summary of our deep history. The following are brief introductions to the ”Long History” of black achievement that we still have not learned follow, grow developed or reestablished. It time to remove the remove the Traumatic slave disorder, by seeing it, excepting it, and growing from it. So let take PowerNomics and run with it. My website is one of the keys.
Okay, Learn, grow and develop as a people.
SHORT SUMMARIES OF THE DEEP HISTORY
Ah, the easy reads! The following are brief introductions to the topics we’ll cover in depth, in the ”Long History” unit that follows this chapter. Pick a topic that interests you and dig deeper. You can read this book in any order. Just make sure you eventually read all of it!
Black people pioneered the science of agriculture over 30,000 years ago in Central Africa, and were farming major crops throughout the world at least 10,000 years ago. Black civilizations in the Nile Valley, the Near East, and East Asia raced to improve their agricultural abilities, so they could provide their populations with the best grains and crops.
Black people designed massive works of architectural prowess over 5,000 years ago, nearly everywhere in the world. For example, there are pyramids in Egypt, the Sudan, West Africa, Southern Europe, China, the South Pacific, and the Americas. Even sciences like acoustics were originally used by Black communities to produce the world’s oldest music halls, ceremonial centers, and monuments more than 10,000 years ago in the Nile Valley and other sites across the world.
Over 30,000 years ago, Black people produced the world’s oldest examples of painting in South Africa, the Sahara, Australia, and Southern Europe. Long before these murals, prehistoric Black communities enjoyed body art, performance art, spoken word poetry, sculpting, interpretive dance, and dozens of other artistic traditions.
Long before the Moors revived the study of the stars, the ancient world celebrated Black astronomers who calculated the movements of the heavens. In Nabta Playa, BLACK PEOPLE INVENTED EVERYTHING: THE HISTORY OF INDIGENOU … near the Nile Valley, there are megalithic stone monuments dating back over 10,000 years. They map out our galaxy!
BUSINESS AND TRADE
The earliest forms of business went hand-in-hand with the world’s first industries and technology. As soon as the world’s first industries were established in East Africa over a million years ago, the most prized artifacts traded in the world’s first marketplaces. Before currency, there was trade!
CASH AND CURRENCY
Across Africa, Asia, and the Pacific, Black people invented the earliest forms of currency, from beads to coins to checks. Black people developed the first economic systems. Cowrie shells served as one of the earliest forms of money in ancient Africa, predating gold coins (which were also developed by Black folks!).
Black ”Aurignacian” people made the world’s first ceramic figurines over 30,000 years ago across the Near East and Europe. Despite their importance, these figurines often look so African they’re not widely talked about.
Despite how Europeans have portrayed the clothing choices of indigenous people, Black communities developed all of the world’s oldest forms of clothing. In tropical areas, the most effective clothing was developed – over a million years ago.
All of the world’s dance traditions can be traced back to an African origin. Some are more closely related to traditional African dances than others. The world has many indigenous dance traditions, yet most can be connected to older traditions in Africa. Salsa, for example, comes from Kizomba.
All of the world’s economic systems, including both socialism and capitalism, can be traced back to ancient Black civilizations. Money itself was an invention of these ancient civilizations. Across ancient Africa, India, and southern China, cowrie shells were used as currency at least 5,000 years ago.
Black people developed the world’s first training programs for healers (the first medical schools) in Africa over 20,000 years ago. We also required quality care, implementing the first ”malpractice” policies for doctors who failed to heal their patients.
Black people built the first shelters and housing structures over 800,000 years ago in the Near East. Before this, our ancestors used natural shelters or portable structures.
The oldest examples of jewelry are shell necklaces found in Morocco, which date back to at least 80,000 years ago. Throughout the ancient world, melanin-rich people have loved gold, to the point of making jewel-studded gold ”grills” thousands of years ago.
Long before the U.S. Postal Service, ancient Black communities in Australia, East Africa, and South America would transfer messages across long distances by using the world’s first ”mail” systems. Although some of these cultures were said to have no written language, their messages could not be read by outsiders!
Both our numerals and mathematics itself (from basic arithmetic to more advanced concepts like algebra) can be traced back to Black minds. The oldest mathematical artifacts are found in Africa and date back to at least 70,000 years ago. Our numerals themselves either come from ancient India or Egypt.
For as long as there has been evidence of injury and illness, Black people diagnosed conditions, used anesthetics, prescribed naturopathic medicines, and even conducted surgery. Many of today’s Western drugs are derived from herbs originally used by indigenous healers. The Hippocratic Oath actually includes an oath to the Egyptian Imhotep, known to the Greeks as Asclepius.
Black people were forging the first metal artifacts over 6,000 years ago in East Africa. By at least 5,000 years ago, these communities could produce high quality carbon steel, long before Europeans developed the process in the 1800s.
Long before European companies began mining Africa for diamonds and gold, black people built the world’s first mines – using geological knowledge we still don’t fully understand- over 30,000 years ago in South Africa and the Nile Valley.
Like language, all of the world’s musical traditions can be traced back to an African origin. The world’s oldest musical instruments, the drum and the flute, can be traced back at least 30,000 years. Modern African and Asian melodies use the same pentatonic scale found on these ancient instruments.
Black people crafted the world’s first pottery over 10,000 years ago in Mali, the Near East, and East Asia. Without ceramics, our ancestors used hollow gourds and woven baskets. Much of the pottery found in ancient times wasn’t for holding food. At least a few were discovered to be massive batteries.
The world’s oldest scientific traditions are indigenous. Through these scientific traditions, Black astronomers, architects, engineers, geologists, doctors, and inventors developed better and better ways to do all the things named above.
Long before Black inventor Jan Matzelinger patented the shoe lasting machine, Black people traveling from Africa into Ice Age Europe had to develop the world’s oldest shoes and boots. Some ancient footwear is more comfortable and durable than today’s best outdoor boots, even after thousands of years.
Black people developed the first spoken languages in Africa over 100,000 years ago. All of the world’s languages can be traced back to an African origin, which may have begun with click noises. Some people still speak with clicks to this day!
Many modern sports can be traced back to ancient traditions still found among indigenous Black populations. For example, skeet-shooting can be found in its original form among the Efe people of Central Africa. The world’s oldest dice were found in ancient Egypt.
Black people created the world’s first technology over 1. 5 million years ago in East Africa. The tools they made were simple but effective, and were made according to very specific standards and traditions. Tool- making was thus one of the world’s first “industries.”
Black people developed the world’s first written languages over 5,000 years ago, and possibly more than 50,000 years ago. For example, even our letter A is an upside-down version of the first letter of the Phoenician alphabet, which is based on the symbol of a bull’s head.
Now you know, by black and put back our power, it time to join blwes.com, it free for user and business can join for less than $10 dollars a month. And the 10 dollar is going to a black business that is investing in black businesses.
We need each other if we are growing to change from the American teaching and programming of our race.
