Name at least 10 residual effects of post traumatic slave syndrome that exist in the Black American
community to this day?
I would say in general a 'collective pain body' and the fear to be judged. As you see I'm not black but I can imagine the consequence the slave syndrome has on the collective.
Interesting issue as the Dutch have not such a nice history.
A complete disconnect from culture and identity.
A distorted view of the definition of beauty.
A discomfort with any image that makes them different from their definition of true beauty.
Minimizes their contributions to society.
Aspirations of themselves and offspring held to a minimum.
A deep divide on issues that effects us as a whole;
Quick to let self appointed leaders make decisions without question on their behalf.
We are still a victim of an educational system that does not educate as much as it indoctrinate.
Deep disrespect and mistrust of one another.
The vast majority still do not know or want to know their true heritage.
1. Misguided over-reliance on religion and superstition
2. Cynicism toward all US culture, institutions and history prior to the 1960s
3. Inability to emulate and adapt (without proper teaching) to the predominate cultural norms of US society in style and manners
4. Easily susceptible to conformity with and acceptance of unjust laws or 4th Amendment violations, such as those in the USA Patriot Act
5. Desire to create a sub-culture based on common heritage
6. The youths viewing success as "making it" in the highly-competitive world of entertainment for white-managed companies or sports teams
7. All come from a background of poverty in bad neighborhoods with terrible schools and unhealthy diets
8. Innate high physical abilities based on decades of being bred like livestock to become stronger and more robust
9. Creation of the only cultural art forms to originate in the US: Blues, Rock, Jazz, Rap
10. Breakdown in the family unit
The greatest tragedy of all in the US is the total lack of empathy from whites toward African Americans
