The Meaning of Blackness

When one accepts lies as truths, this affects his or her notion of reality, which inevitably causes incorrect conclusions to form in the mind. These conclusions, consciously and unconsciously, affect and filter our beliefs about the nature and order of things in creation. Such untruths necessarily shape a people’s belief about the alternatives that they should consider when dealing with their contemporary problems. Lies also limit the actions a people might choose to take in response to their oppression. Also, lies have a definite influence on the type of world an oppressed people will choose to support, as well as the resulting relationships they will have with family, friends, neighbors, and with their enemy. In short, the beliefs a person or a people hold as truths directly affect all of their social interactions. Though truth is ‘a common thing,’ the lies another people have replaced with truth now seem just as ‘common’ to us, especially when we continue to ignore logical connections.”
