Black Women are in Trouble: Here is Why, Dr. Steven Nur Ahmed

Tragic days of loneliness and poverty lay ahead for females who are descendants of slaves. Tragic because most of them have been set up for elimination by their government.

That should come as no surprise to anyone because we have always needed to live with more suspicion than others that government will eventually and intentionally wrong us all.

But the suffering of black women is compounded by betrayal. Betrayal, by grandsons of the males with whom their grand- mothers shared the hull of slave ships; by grandsons of the men their grandmothers stood next to while sharecropping throughout the south; by grandsons of the men for whom their grandmothers wept when their manhood was stripped from them; by the grandsons of men their mothers wept for while they were being lynched; by grandsons of those men with whom their grand-mothers stood beside in righteous struggle. All have turned their backs on black women today.

The betrayal by those black men is both emotional and physical. But even worse it is the chorus of disrespect from those same men which penetrate deep into the psyche of black women and kills the soul.

It’s not as though even some of their experiences in the United States have been happy. Happiness has always illuded African American females in the United States; if happiness is the fulfillment of desire, then there can be no happiness for black women in the United States.

It does not help that many black women show their near-sightedness by lending so much effort to tow a line for fly by night white feminist movements or organizations. From those which have an LBGT agenda to those which use black women for neo-liberal or right wing conservative agendas, after the ‘movement’ after the ‘demonstration’, the average black women will go home to their impoverished neighborhoods while the average white women will go home to security, opportunity, and wealth.

Even for those groups which exploit their adoration for God, black women have been the forty-mule team pulling the political cart for others. The ironies are that 1) none of their support for white groups will convert to dollars and cents for them when they need it. It never has. And, 2) fewer and fewer African American women are able or willing to expend the energy to cooperate with a man to tow a family line.

Nevertheless, for their sake, the fact book must be opened.  We cannot turn our faces away from the pages which describe future political betrayals and the resultant fallout which will be their shattered lives.

My words are taken from a page in the fact book. My words describe an unhappy time; it is what the facts on the page compel me to write.

At this late date, the range of alternative paths leading black women away to a better situation in the future has become as narrow as a pin head. That makes me think trouble for most black women is inevitable. Let me lay out some facts.

 A large percentage of up to 60% of African American women will be on the verge of a catastrophic economic collapse by the year 2050. 

 They will face homelessness in their old age, poor health, a steep decline in their individual life spans, and a consequent decline in the average life span of all African American women.

There are many reasons to conclude that what is instore for millions of black women will be a greater social challenge than that of the African American male incarceration rate in the 20th and 21st centuries.

It is a problem we can clearly see as one would see a storm on the horizon. Like a growing storm, we can see the growing dysfunction of the New Deal Social Security safety net implemented by the Roosevelt administration in 1936.

The Social Security administration has announced that by 2034 it will no longer have money to meet the needs of people retiring at the age of 65 and over.

Fifty-three percent of the retirement age population depend solely on the guarantee of receiving a social security check to live on after they can no longer work. But that guarantee is in jeopardy because the vault is empty.

There will be no money for 5,942,385 Generation X and Millennial Black women 64 to 84 by the year 2034. They will need social security benefits to survive in their old age. There will be none. It is projected that the social security administration will go unfunded to the end of the 21st century. But this coming social catastrophe will not have arisen out of a vacuum.

 Intersecting lines of no Marriage and no Children

 As of 2010, 61% of African American women were not married. That is the lowest ethnic marriage rate in the nation. The downward trend in marriages between black males and females will continue. In 2050, the majority female Descendants of Slaves will be unmarried. Most will have never been married. Most of them will never marry. The same will hold true for Descendants of slave males. Generally, that will translate into further economic and emotional instability. 

It means many who live long enough to reach 65 to 70 years of age will be too weak and old to work. They will be alone because they will not have the emotional, material, and moral support of a husband.

A recent study released by the Federal Reserve Bank highlights that only 18% of black families have two earner households.[1] That fact makes it clear that most black women can’t save money. Therefore, Black women will not only be alone but they will be without money. Many black women will be on the street; they will be reduced to begging. No one will care.

As of 2012, the total fertility rate for African American females was 1.8. Compared to Asian Americans at 1.6, that is close to the lowest ethnic fertility rate in the nation of 1.3.

A very large number of black women will have no children or will have had only one child by 2034. Probably, that one child will be financially unable to render support for their mother. What it means is that there will be no extended family support network for most black women.

For over 150 years, African American women benefited from having strong extended family networks which included husbands, sisters, brothers, children, and grand-children, and cousins.

Those net-works provided an emotional and economic safety net for them in old age. But traditional family networks will no longer exist in 2050. We are at the end of both the nuclear and extended family networks. We are at the end of a time when the family will be known as a utilitarian value among black people.

Whether it should be thought of that way or not is a moral issue. I believe family does have value. But all current evidence compels me to accept the fact that many black people no longer believe that families united by husband and wife have value worth preserving.

 Intersecting Lines of Poverty and Poor Health

Intersecting with the breakdown of family structure is the rise of poverty and poor physical and mental health among black women. African American women will begin to  suffer staggering health problems  as we move deeper into the 21st century. Another page in the fact book.

Recently, the Center for Disease Control released a report which said in part that the overall health of African American women is deteriorating rapidly: “…Researchers say the issue has no single cause, but persistent poverty, inadequate healthcare and higher risk factors such as high blood-pressure, obesity and diabetes impact black women at a higher rate.”[2] But there are wealth issues, too.

Another study revealed that the median wealth for single black women is $5.00 dollars compared to 42,600.00 for white women between the ages of 36 to 49. That is correlated with decreased savings for retirement among seventy-two percent of both Generation X and Millennial African American females.

Many of them will still be burdened by college debt and cost of living expenses during their productive years, for those reasons they will not be able to save money when they are young. Their lives reduced in value to a repetitive act of trying without ever reaching security they will sink below the poverty line like ships hit by a torpedo. And there won’t be life-jackets to save them.

Most black females will not inherit wealth from their baby boom parents because by 2024 the median value of assets or wealth held by African Americans is generally projected to be about $1,200.00 dollars compared to assets or wealth held by whites at over $122,366.00 dollars. There will be no major generational transfer of wealth among black people in general and black women in particular.

Saving money for the future will be problematic for other reasons as well. Monetary inflation has increased on average about 3% per year for over 100 years. That means a dollar in your hand today will be devalued by three cents within a year and every year thereafter such that within 16 years that same dollar will have lost 50% of its current purchasing value.

That means that the dollar today will buy less for you in 20 years. It means that the only way for you to keep up with the cost of living is to get at least a 3% cost of living raise in your income every year.

If people have a fixed income or no income, then it will be impossible for them to keep up with the increasing cost of living. That means food and rental cost will be too much for them to afford. It means that most black women will be forced to eat junk food and live on the streets in their old age. Will there be ghetto options?

Maybe they will live in abandoned cars renovated to provide shelter. That will be sad.

But by 2060, the masses will have no compassionate sentiment for black women because the masses will have adapted to their status as the underclass and will perceive black women as having no utilitarian value to society. They will show them no concern. 

The Number of Elderly is Rising: Who Will Support Them?

As of 2018, there are approximately 50 million people over the age of 65. That number is expected to increase to 74 million by 2034 and 81 million by 2050. The question is who will support them financially? Debates are taking place now. Those debates will steer millions of black women down a track.

Congress is debating the issue of the Dream Act or D.A.C.A. as I speak. The Trump administration wants to end the ‘chain policy’ which allows immigrants to bring family members into the nation.

The Democratic Congress wants to keep that policy and allow millions of illegal immigrants to stay in the nation.

Trump wants to build a border wall to keep illegal immigrants out of the nation.

But Democrats know that without a continued influx of both legal and illegal immigrants there will not be enough low wage people to pay taxes.

Without enough people in the active or working population to pay the necessary amount of taxes into social security, the Federal Government will face bankruptcy because it will be overburdened with the poor and its massive military expenditures as well as rising climate change costs. Just printing more money by the U.S. Treasury Department won’t remedy the problems because the amount of money issued to the aged will have very little purchasing power.

If the Republicans win, they will allow social security to collapse under the colossal weight of millions of dependent people; given that scenario, most black women will lose everything. Many will die prematurely. White Supremacists will say ‘good’.

If the progressives win they will increase state and Federal taxation on the rich and unskilled working population of immigrants. More companies will flee the nation. The result will be the spread of poverty. The government may restrict migration out of the country so that it can hold workers.

Unskilled workers will be trapped doing low wage service and non-industrial kinds of work. They will be unable to keep up with the cost of living. They will be virtual slaves.

Also, the Democratic think tanks are not factoring in the number of immigrant dependents and the burden that they will have on local, county, and state welfare systems nor the increasing cost due to global climate change damages that will occur regularly throughout the 21st century. Then it all falls apart. States and the Federal government will fight over taxation priority.  

But the Federal government will dominate the field.  Consequently, many states will fall to the level of third world poverty for its lower-class citizens.

In response to that, taxation burdens will grow from what it takes now to pay your taxes out of your annual income, about three months, to four months of your annual income.

Consequently, if Democrats prevail, Congress and State legislatures will be forced to cut social welfare programs for the poor by at least 30%. Black women will be the big losers because the costs to State and Federal governments to cover the cost of climate change damages will take priority over their social needs.

 Individualism or Collectivism?

Family is a collective endeavor. Family is a business. Family requires the highest degree of unity between males and females to achieve material and spiritual success. Historically, family members have supported one another in a variety of ways.

On the other hand, individualism is the polar-opposite of collectivism; individualism is the belief in self-interested promotion above all others.

Family unity cannot be preserved nor success achieved between men and women if, at the same time, they are committed to individualism as a way of life.

At some point in the past, both male and female descendants of slaves bought the notion and practice of individualism. The subscription to individualism has been a disaster for both. It has resulted in the destruction of family as we once knew it because family is no longer a meaningful practical way of life.

Consequently, we have been atomized; involved solely in our own spheres of interests while the turf we share and stand upon evaporates beneath our feet causing us all to free-fall.

Are there some viable choices which can be made now to avoid such a disaster?

Unless we become more collectivist in our social relations, the fact book describes an economic free-fall as being the most likely fate for millions of African American females.

Hip Hop Suicide

Black women are under attack; they are the target of a global mass media effort to dehumanize them. One powerful instrument of mass media is the hip hop cult of black female haters and those who follow them.  

Hip Hop is a cult. It is a cult because it turns on a unique set of values unlike any values among civilized people. Their values are life denying values.

Hip Hop’s followers, like all true believers, are committed to acting out their life denying values whether it is with drugs and alcohol, promoting atheism, or promoting the belief that human life has no spiritual purpose. Their culture is a culture of debasement and that makes it a culture of suicide.

They are a whole generation of young African Americans. Those born within impoverished inner cities during the crack epidemic of the 1980s and 1990s and who have been raised on the denigrating lyrics of countless hip hop performers and a culture of inner city violence.

They are a generation of hip hop cultists. They have internalized hip hop symbolism and stereotypes into their subconscious minds and act with a minimum of reason and forethought.

They have elected as their leaders performers who spew out the hip hop message of white supremacy as they are paid to do by major white financial institutions.  Why do they attack black women? They attack black women because they have adapted the white supremacist myth of black women.

There is a lie being circulated on some Youtube programs propagated by some black men about some black women. The men circulating the lie are young black men between 17 and 40. These men have learned or are being paid to circulate a wholly negative view of black women. Their expressions are full of emotive terms.

Most of the discussions fail to make logically cogent arguments and argue without support of statistical facts.  Black women are falsely blamed for getting pregnant as if black girls and women inseminate themselves! Further, they blame black girls and women for being on welfare.  

Those who make such allegations get thousands of hits and likes on You-Tube from other black men. These followers feed on the lies because it helps them to rationalize their subconscious white supremacist mental orientation.

The show hosts falsely present themselves as economic innovators as well as being intellectual or knowledgeable and who aim to enlighten listeners when in reality they are the non musical compliment of the hip-hop cult of black woman haters.

The lie suggests that a large percentage of black girls and women between the ages of 15 and 30 years of age decide or with willful intent conspire to manipulate black men into relationships to become pregnant so that they can collect food stamps and qualify for welfare cash benefits. The black men who circulate that lie are misogynists.

You can recognize them by their language or speech. They refer to black women as ‘hoes’, ‘bed-winches’, hood-rats, Thot, bastard baby-makers, and many other negative words. The men who use such terminology hate black girls and women. They even have deep rooted hatred for their mothers.  

They hate their black mothers who raised them despite her sacrifice and her struggle to raise them without a committed man. They hate her because they hate being black and they don’t know how to be a man. They then transfer all their conflicted emotions onto all black women and girls. Why such hate and venomous words?

They need to do that so that they can rationalize their rejection of black girls and women. They do it in order to make themselves feel justified for marrying a woman of a different race or so they can be comfortable with being closet homosexuals. They are like the white slave masters’ black overseer who beat the black slave women willingly for the slave master and is then rewarded.

Such black men are genetic racists. They are genetic racists because they psychologically subscribe to classical white supremacy. They are no different than the hip-hop cult of black woman haters who get paid by white men to spew out the most hateful satanic lyrics about black women in U.S. history. 

They are no different than the Ku Klux Klan because they react with fear and sexual repulsion to the same subconscious network of images, stereotypes, and failed personal experiences as white supremacists murderers whether they are police officers or district attorneys or state and federal judges who hate all black people. 

The fact is that neither women nor men have children with the willful intent of qualifying for welfare. The fact is that men and women are bio-chemically motivated to be attracted to each other sexually.  Black women have a sex drive. The sex drive in both men and women is constant no matter what their life situation.

 The emotional and physical pleasure experienced in the sex act is centered in the brain of both men and women and reinforces the desire for more sexual contact.  But there is also another dimension to the act of sexual intercourse.

The sexual act occurs within either a responsible or irresponsible socio-economic condition. Metaphorically, a couple will have sex on a bed or on the floor; either on clean sheets or on dirty sheets. They will clean themselves with dirty towels or with clean towels. Welfare dependence results when the context of sexual activity by men and women is socio-economically inadequate.  A man and women who are sexually involved are members of all other couples who like them are sexually involved on any given day.  This fact is substantiated by the fact that thousands of babies are born on the same day.

The sex drive in men and women is a constant instinctual impulse. And, because at least one third of black women live at or below the poverty line, it is highly likely that a large percentage of black women are going to act out sexually under poor social conditions. 

What I mean by poor social conditions is that many black women will engage in sexual activity with whom they can when they can. That is more likely because the marriage rate for black people has been on the decline for over 40 years. Marriage is rare among black Americans today. Serial sexual relations are the new norm. The side effect of serial relations is that 72% of all black babies are now born to single parent families.

Poverty, low education, and incompetent black men qualify black women for welfare. Do this mental experiment, imagine if family courts awarded physical custody of children 3 years and older to fathers as a rule, would black women in those same social conditions still have serial sexual relations? The answer is yes. 

The answer is yes because the sex drive in all people is constant; the sex drive is always on.  The problem is that the sex drive of black people was economically profitable under slavery, but beyond the slave era black sexual energy has increasingly become an economic deficit. Since the profits have dried up, that same sexual energy is being manipulated by white institutions in such a way so as to cause as much conflict and competition between black men and women as possible.  

The slave master engineered the cultural framework of both black women and men. The slave system was made in such a way that the value of marriage was negated.

By preventing marriage, the slave master administered a patriarchal structure with white slave masters as the patriarchs. Beneath him were his wife then his children and other relatives in that order. Those next were the white overseers. After them came the slaves. At the bottom were black women, their children, and black men. Because marriage was not allowed, black women formed a matriarchal structure in the slave quarters and at the same time they were economically dependent on the white patriarch master.

The black man’s relation with the black female matriarch was competitive. Their relationship was competitive because they were pitted against each other in the field and as house servants.  Since all the profits went to the patriarch there was no economic support from black men for black women, thus black men were made inconsequential in the minds of black women except for sexual intercourse and breeding. On the basis of their slave roles they formed negative stereotypes of each other.

Black women had babies and may or may not have been with the men who fathered the children or it was the slave master’s child or children, and that truth had to be suppressed.

Under those conditions, dependence was learned by all black people. The master giveth and the master taketh away. But babies born of black women were added value to the slave master’s business. The slave master profited economically because the cost to feed pork guts to another slave baby was less than the money he earned by those babies as they grew.

The end of slavery brought about a new form of patriarchy. Government stepped into the boots of the slave master. But it was not a perfect fit because many black people sought to be families with economic self-sufficiency. However, many other black people did not form family structures nor did they find economically viable vocations. From them formed a culture of poverty.

After the failure of reconstruction and 1890, the southern Dixi-crats or Democratic Party reinstituted black economic dependence under the Roosevelt administration’s Aid to Families with Dependent Children.  They did it to get the black vote and to kick start the economy. The economy was fueled by funneling money from the U.S. Treasury to banks through poor black and white women.  

Now, Government patriarchy could operate in full force. It also reinstituted black matriarchy in poor black neighborhoods because black women had some monetary power. For that reason, black women shared in both the benefits of patriarchy and in the exercise of power in their matriarchal neighborhoods. One of the side effects has been the ongoing competition and negative feelings between black men and women.

Perhaps there is a conspiracy. But by no stretch of the imagination has there been a thought out conspiracy by poor black women to have children to get welfare money. Welfare dependence on the part of black women was and is because black men were and are economically marginalized. Black men were made economically incompetent during the depression in the 1930s as black men are generally economically incompetent today.

Thomas Malthus, a Scottish philosopher, explained that government can control the sexual energy of poor or marginalized people. He stated that to reduce the population of an unwanted people the state must engineer social conditions which negate marriage and blur sexual boundaries. That is the case today and its negative impact is evident.

Black babies born today are generally profitable for prisons, the welfare system, and for SSI dependencies. But each of those industries is beginning to cost more to upkeep than the profits once made. With the cost benefit shift, prisons are being closed; while over the last 40 years 22 million black fetuses have been aborted.

The fact is that demographically black women’s fertility rate and birth rate across all age ranges between 15 to 45 years of age has been falling since 1960. Today, black women on average have a lower fertility rate than white women. In fact, it is now about 1.8 babies born per black women between 15 and 45 in a given year.  The black birth rate is below replacement level. At that rate of fertility decline there will be very, very few black people after the year 2047. Thomas Malthus was right.

The facts make clear that white people control the sexuality of black people. At the ground level one cannot see the hand of white men manipulating their sex drive. A close look reveals the fact that white men manipulate our sexual energy through the medical system, the cult of hip-hop black women haters, and misogynistic pseudo thinkers.

Metaphorically, white men have their hands on black men’s penises and black women’s vaginas by controlling the conditions in which African Americans act out their natural instinctual energies.

Lastly, the misogynistic cult of pseudo thinkers and hip hop coons should get this; black men generally are the ones penetrating black women’s vaginas and leaving them with a fatherless child.

The problem of unwanted black babies is not due to black women. The problem is due to black men who don’t train their daughters to be moral and disciplined. The problem is black men who verbally and sexually abuse black girls; the problem is black fathers and step-fathers who commit incest.

So, black men, instead of denigrating black women you should take a look in the mirror at yourself because if some black women are dependent on welfare and food stamps it is because they don’t have a man who can support the family he made.


Welcome to EarthColony.Net: SETTING TRAPS FOR HOOD RATS, by Dr. Steven Nur Ahmed

Malcolm X Statue2


Lakisha lives in a major U.S. city.  She is a descendant of slaves though she does not think of herself as such. She was born into a single parent household. Her mother is on AFDC, W.I.C., and living in section 8 housing with Lakisha’s three sisters.

Lakisha never knew her father. Her mother was a teenager when she gave birth to Lakisha.  Consequently, Lakisha’s mother had to drop out of high school at the age of 15. Her mother never returned to school.

Over the course of the years, Lakisha’s mother had many male sexual partners. Because Lakisha was the oldest of her siblings she saw her mother’s partners come into her mother’s life and leave.

At the age of 16, Lakisha met a boy. They became sexually involved. Eventually Lakisha got pregnant. She went to school pregnant for a while and it was found out that she was pregnant by teachers and counselors.

There was an abortion clinic in the neighborhood. The clinic also had an office at Lakisha’s school. Some of the people there tried to persuade her to abort her fetus. But Lakisha said no to them because she wanted to keep her fetus and have her baby.

As she grew into her third trimester, her mother took her down to the various Federal, State, and County agencies so that she could apply for and receive AFDC, W.I.C., Food Stamps, and Section 8 housing. 

The young boy had disappeared out of her life and so Lakisha was on her own and dependent upon government to support both her and her new child. For the first time in her life she felt alone.

Lakisha will never return to school. She moved into an apartment a few blocks from her mother’s apartment in the same complex of apartments set aside for Section 8 housing dependents.

In order to appreciate the scope of Lakisha’s plight one must multiply it millions of times. Only then are we likely to come face to face with a fundamental issue: Whether or not Lakisha is a hood rat?

There are 46,700,000 people living in the United States who are on Food Stamps. That equals 15% of the total U.S. population.  Of that number Lakisha is one of 17,940,000 descendants of slaves on Food Stamps.  Of all persons on Food Stamps, 40% are descendants of slaves though descendants of slaves constitute only 13% of the total U.S. population. They receive on average about $133.00 per month.

Lakisha is one out of 317 million people counted by the U.S. Census Department in the United States. Of that number, she is one out of 12,997,000 persons who are dependent on welfare payments. That translates into 4.1% of the U.S. population who are dependent on welfare to support them.

The percentage of descendants of slaves on welfare support is 39% of the total 12,997,000 people on welfare.  Lakisha is one out of 5,068,830 descendants of slaves who are on welfare on any given day. Therefore, 12% of all descendants of slaves in the United States are on welfare support.

The United States Government spends approximately 131.9 billion dollars per year for welfare support. The expenditure on descendants of slaves is 39% of that total or $51, 090,000,000.00 (billion) dollars to support descendants of slaves per year. The average check amount is about $10,000.00 per year or $844.74 per month.

Lakisha does the best that she can. She wears cheap clothes; she has a small vocabulary; she has rough manners honed by very aggressive interactions with others in her neighborhood.

She has no bank account and so in order to cash her check she goes to a Fast Check Cashing establishment within walking distance of her apartment.  They know her very well because she is there every month at the same time.

Lakisha has no car so she walks to the neighborhood stores to shop for food. The stores do not carry fresh vegetables and fruit so she buys canned or processed genetically modified foods like corn, sugar, milk, cheese, along with processed meats, and candy. Not only does Lakisha pay the retail price, she pays higher prices for her goods than she would pay outside of the hood; and along with that she pays a sales tax, too.

On the way home she stops at the local fast food outlet and buys some of their high salt and fat foods along with a sugary soda. She sits there with her baby to rest awhile before going home.

Her rent is paid in part by the government and she makes up the difference; she has never been late paying her rent to the landlord.

Two weeks go by and Lakisha is nearly broke; she waits anxiously for time to pass as she watches cable television shows throughout the day and night to pass time.

Meanwhile, the landlord, the check cashing establishment owner, the corner store owner, and the fast food outlet manager have taken their money to the bank.  None of them is a descendant of slaves. It is a daily, weekly, monthly ritual as they line up in the merchants line of the bank to make their deposits. Annually, they file their tax reports and pay whatever they owe to the Internal Revenue Service. They have all had a good year in the hood. They each count sizable profits servicing Lakisha and others like her.

The bank then has its opportunity. It takes the deposits from each of the merchants, but it then shaves off 90% of their deposits under the Fractional Reserve banking rule set by the Federal Government.  It is a rule which allows banks to keep on reserve at the bank 1 dollar out of every 10 put in deposit. So, 90% of the 51 billion dollars or 45 billion dollars banks can then use to give short and long term loans to corporations and use to invest on Wall Street and in other global markets. The banks are then able to multiply the 45 billion dollars by 2, 3, 4, or even 5 times the amount given to them for safe keeping. The small amount of interest which the depositors earn on their deposits is miniscule in comparison to the profits made by the banks on deposit money.

The bankers are very happy. They have successfully used tax dollars paid through welfare and food stamp recipients like Lakisha to enrich themselves. In fact everyone has done well, except Lakisha. The IRS, the banks, and the ghetto stores have each made more money than they have expended because of the interest and taxes earned at each stage of a transaction with people like Lakisha.  The cycle is complete at that moment.

So, who are the ghetto rats? Lakisha and those like her merely serve as pipe lines through which money flows from taxpayers to government, to welfare recipients, then to banks, corporations, and finally back to government. Those establishments don’t lose money they dominant, control, exploit, and profit off poor people. It is they who are the hood rats not Lakisha and those like her.

That is why “the poor will always be with you”; poverty is profitable. Ghetto predators feed on the poor as do vultures on carrion. It is yet another of the aspects of plantation life lived out by poor people in the United States and the world.







C=B:E. Learn this equation because your life may depend upon it.  It means that the carrying capacity (C) of any given environment increases or decreases as the biotic potential (a living being’s potential to have offspring)(B) goes up or down in relation to resistance by the environment (E) going up or down.  For example, I once lived on a 500 acre farm in Mississippi during the 1950s.  My grandfather had 16 children. Now there were 18 persons on the land. They were each given an acre or two on which to build a home when they married.  Each of the sons and some of the daughters married and then built homes for themselves on the family farm.

They in turn had over 8 or 9 children. So now that original 2+16=18 had become 2+16×9 or approximately 160 descendents plus my grandfather and grandmother (162). By the mid 1950s, the number of grandchildren had become so numerous that it became impossible to apportion land to each grandson upon their marriage because to do so would have decreased the agricultural capacity of the farm and its gross domestic product or put another way it would have reduced how much commodities the farm could produce in a year. Also there was the risk that over use of the soil would have depleted it as well as water resources. All of that over time would have decreased the amount of surplus produce and money earned each year thus slowly causing each family to suffer a decline in their overall quality of life.

Those 160 grandchildren grew to maturity and started to have children.  Even if each of them had but 5 children apiece which was normal in the mid 1950s it would have constituted 2+16+160×5=818 more family members. Therefore it was no longer feasible to continue the tradition of giving direct descendents an acre or two from the land and a share in the wealth produced by the farm. The carrying capacity of the farm land was reduced by the resistance of the environment to any further population growth because there were too many mouths to feed and not enough resources to insure that each new generation could get from the farm an equal or greater share of its resources.  It was impossible to maintain a reasonable standard of life for all. It was a clear example of the law of diminishing returns.


The law of diminishing returns is applicable on a worldwide basis, too.  There are over 7,100,063,581 (billion) people on earth right now as of this writing.[1] Each generation of people in developing nations want to live an American lifestyle and so want to live in cities and have more material luxuries than what the previous generations had. Our world population will increase to over 9 billion in two decades. But at the same time in the more industrialized countries fertility rates are decreasing to far below replacement levels.[2] That indicates that later this century (2048 or 2050) our world population is going to nose dive and it may never recover. It may not recover because the environment will resist human recovery because the environment will not meet the basic needs of human beings worldwide.

Note this, 50% of all life is supported by the oceans and seas and 80% of the world’s human population lives on coastal regions. Big sea life stocks are down by 90% since 1950 and most stocks are predicted to collapse by 2048 because of new bottom trawling and dredge techniques for fishing.[3] Now, approximately 1000 species of animal go extinct every year compared to just 3% per year for hundreds of thousands of years. Fresh water lakes are drying up, too. For example, Lake Mead in Nevada is at an all time low; Lake Chad in Africa is virtually dried up.

None of these facts are a surprise to government experts. Their studies anticipated these conditions decades ago and are correlated with global population growth. They also predicted even worse conditions to come in the 21st century.  Some people will argue that there are moral reasons such as greed and waste which are the causes of the problems cited above.  Other people will argue that the cause of our problems is the irresponsible use of modern fossil burning technologies. Still other people will argue that our problems are unavoidable and therefore are the inevitable outcome of ‘divine command’ necessity even though there are hundreds of religions throughout the world with different divine command prophesy each contradicting the other. The only thing that we can predict with absolute certainty about future human behavior is that we will seek out food and water and that we will reproduce offspring whenever possible.

The fact is there have been natural crises before which predate written history and all known religious world views.  For example, approximately 80,000 years ago natural disasters reduced the human population to about 2,000 individuals.[4] So, what we face is neither solely due to immorality nor solely due to the burning of fossil fuels. The environmental problems we face are a combination of each. The fact is that we like every other life form on earth are subject to thousands of natural cycles which interplay with the demands which organic life makes on what for us are limited resources.

We are now at a hinge period in natural history and civil history.  It just so happens that both catastrophic natural changes and our moral decline are in sync. But even if we were doing fine morally we’d still be in decline. The fact that we are not doing fine morally means that we face a horrible nightmare. There is nothing that we can do to stop natural cycles from playing out to their natural end. Those forces do not conform to our logic and are absolutely impersonal in their operations.  We will not stop our moral decline either.


My 750 relatives migrated to the northeast, east and west coasts to find their means of support in large urban centers. They individually made more cash income and had between 3 and 6 children per household. Some bought homes and earned equity in those homes. Others rented. But whether they rented or bought their homes they shared a common economic loss; none of them were making, producing or growing things anymore. They didn’t pay attention to that because it was so convenient to just go to the grocery store for produce they once grew.  All of that reinforced an illusion of prosperity but in reality they were becoming poorer.

All seemed to be going well for a few decades. My folks plunged head first into the golden age of materialism in America. But what they didn’t see was the coming of an economic tsunami. Nor did the people who presented themselves as their leaders see it coming. The complexities of urban life started to erode the moral basis of their traditional upbringing. Crime went up especially drug use. Drugs, like crack cocaine, were imported into their neighborhoods to siphon off their surplus cash income. For those reasons and many others, mothers and fathers began to increasingly walk away from their children and never to return.  The family was broken and under the circumstances it will be impossible to put the traditional family back together again because it was born of a different soil.  Then they found themselves surrounded by a different culture in which homicide and suicide became normative.

To compound the moral crisis facing my folks they then got a hard lesson in capitalism. Major corporations started to relocate overseas to exploit cheap labor and to avoid taxation.  Now in the cities without as many factory jobs, cash flow started to dry up. Reality started to set in during the 1980s. African American unemployment numbers started to increase while an annual 3% inflation rate eroded the value of the dollar while drugs and prison life eroded the moral fiber of whole neighborhoods.

Now thousands of my relatives and millions of other African Americans became stranded in economically broken cities like Detroit, Mich., Oakland, Ca. and Compton, Ca.; they are in deep trouble. But given all of that there is another piece of the puzzle they do not have; it is the demographic piece and none of the so called leaders are really telling us what is coming and coming soon.

Between 1946 and 1964, about 7,500,000 African Americans were born as part of the baby boom generation. By use of simple arithmetic we can see into the future. If we add 85 to 1965 it would make a person born in 1965 eighty-five years of age in the year 2050.  By that time most baby boomers will be dead. There would be by that time a total loss of 7,500,000 African Americans.  Over that 19 year period beginning in 2031 leading up to 2050, our folks will suffer an increasing death rate due to many health related causes correlated with a decreasing fertility rate which is now (2013) at below replacement (1.9 babies per women 15 to 44) and the largest population decline in their history.  Things will never be the same.  We can see in the present demographic figures the answer to the question ‘why?’

The birth rate for married African American women was 137.3 per 1000 women between the ages of 15 and 44 in 1950. That birth rate peaked in 1959; 1959 was the year that the birth control pill was approved by the FDA. By the year 1997, the birth rate for married African American women was 70.7 per 1000 women ages 15 to 44. That is a near 50% decrease in the birth rate. At the same time there was a corresponding increase in births to unmarried African American women. Beginning in 1946, the number of births to unmarried African American women was 17.3 births per 1000 or 17%; by 1995 it reached 50.5 per 1000 or 70% of all births to unmarried African American women ages 15 to 44.

In 2005, the ratio of live births to abortions for married African American women was 71.9 births to 18.8 abortions. Conversely, unmarried African American women are more likely to abort their fetus. The facts compel us to conclude that African American women are more likely to carry their baby to term if they are married. But the trend is toward fewer and fewer marriages in the future.  The decline in the marriage rate is correlated with a rise in abortion.  The conclusion? Destroy the black family and they will terminate their own black fetuses.

From 1973[5] to 2011, there have been 54,559,615 reported abortions in the United States. Of that number, 72% were done by African American women. That equals 39,282,922 abortions over a 40 year period.  The ratio in 2005 for unmarried African American women is 67.8 births to 62 abortions. Between 1993 and 2005 for every birth there was an abortion among unmarried African American women.  This is an ethnic catastrophe.

What we are compelled to infer based upon these facts is that the abortion rate and/or birth control to prevent birth will probably remain high at over 48 per 1000 African American women over the next ten years. Two factors make this likely. The children of the baby boomers are the most physically unfit and culturally maladjusted generation of African Americans to ever live. Secondly, the unmarried rate will likely remain high or increase. Approximately 73% of African American women are unmarried. Thirdly, sexuality is independent of marital status.  It adapts to all circumstances. Water conforms to the vessel into which it is poured.

We need not make a moral judgment regarding abortion and a women’s right to choose for us to have common ground upon which to agree that there will be catastrophic consequences for all African Americans alive during the later part of the 21st century for the high abortion rate and declining marriage rate.  We should start now to prepare ourselves for what is to come.


Civil rights is no longer the big issue. We have been given all the civil rights that we will ever get in America. The civil rights bag is empty. We African Americans are actors on the vast stage of human history in this hinge period. Global changes are quickly reducing the carrying capacity of the earth itself and we are on it and so we too are in trouble. There are going to be unimaginable changes. We are not prepared for those changes in whatever form they take.

So called African American civil rights proponents who continue to apply the same strategic formula that Dr. Martin Luther King did in the 1950s and 60s would have you think that the most pressing issue or set of problems facing African Americans today in 2013 are those same civil rights issues of the last 200 years.  They are political whores for the major democratic and republican parties; they are turned out to turn tricks for those parties to get for them ‘black’ votes. They are used by the elite as distractions from the more pressing issues we face. They are wrong and it may cost us many lives if we do not see through their fallacious arguments.


The strategies of Dr. King were tooled for the constitutional issues and civil rights circumstances of a particular era. Those unique circumstances which existed in the 1950s and 60s are no longer central issues for us. For example, much of the industrial base of the Unites States has relocated outside the United States and thus no longer exists in urban centers such as Detroit Michigan and Oakland California; they are not coming back. The economic non-employment participation rate for African Americans is 41.8%[6]. The high school dropout rate in most urban centers is over 50% for African American males. African Americans give over $1,000,000,000 (trillion) dollars away every year and over 33% of our people live in poverty. These are not the government’s problems. The Constitution does not mandate government to make jobs for its citizens; it was established to protect constitutional rights, to defend against foreign enemies, to enforce civil and criminal law, and to take a census every 10 years.

Therefore, for these and other reasons the civil rights strategies are not applicable to the problems which we face today because today’s problems are economic and moral through and through. Our problems today are different by nature and will not be solved by mass public demonstrations.  We must evolve a new family structure which will be efficient in the socialization of our children. We must keep our money. We must pool our money. We must build our capital. We must publicly shame those who don’t.
