A few months ago this came up in a conversation. How do you know when one is conscious or has the knowledge of them selves. What does a conscious person do?

That is an excellent question.

I don't know how to tell if a person has knowledge of themselves. How much knowledge of themselves? Enough to know they have their eyes open? Enough to know they don't know as much as they should know? I don't know.

You should put together an experiment, run it, and make an analysis of what a "conscious" person says and/or does in all areas of people activity including economics, education, labor, law, politics, religion, sex, and war.

I would say that conciouss is being aware that a system of racism/white supremacy exits, and what should be done about it.

But that's just me.

There r several ways 2 tell if a person is conscious. First, u can make a visual appraisal of the individual, looking mainly for consciousness-raising assessories (an Ankh around the neck, red- green- black arm band, sometimes Afro or dred hairstyle, etc). Second, listen to their dialogue and vocabulary, using proper word, for example, like white supremacy instread of racism, for example, because racism, a much preferred term of white folks (the word "white" is necessarily missing), can be applied arbitrarily/accussingly towards anyone non-white ("That Black guy is just as racist," said the white person.) Third, u kan tell if a person is conscious by the organization(s) to which they belong e.g., All Afrikan Peoples Revolutionary Army, Nation of Islam, New Black Panther Party, etc. The visual appraisal, i think, tops the list because, in most circumstances, u will SEE a conscious person BEFORE u actually meet them personally.

This iz my first post, and i hope 2 b a part of this webby's struggle to end white supremacy az we know it...

The smartest and most powerful white people, the racists (white supremacists), use deceit and direct violence to practice racism (white supremacy). My motivation is counter-racism...to reveal truth in a manner that promotes justice.

Are you a white person?

To the question:

Now to answer your questions.

Now I think I understand your response if what I said above is correct. Is it correct?

There are white people in "Afrika". There are white people in "Afrika" who came to "America" that now call themselves "Afrikan American".

Nope, this is not a website for whites. This is a website for victims of racism (white supremacy), which are non-white people, that know they are victims of racism (white supremacy) that want to replace the SYSTEM of racism (white supremacy) with a SYSTEM of justice.

Now, the smartest and most powerful white people can also use the strategies and techniques on this website to replace the SYSTEM of racism (white supremacy) with a SYSTEM of justice but it has been my experience that the smartest and most powerful white people are not interested and are not involved in replacing the SYSTEM of racism (white supremacy) with a SYSTEM of justice. Logically speaking, the smartest and most powerful white people practice racism (white supremacy).

I'm not sure you answered my question. Is it correct that you are not a white person?
