Countering the Conspiracy to Destroy Black Boys

Countering the Conspiracy to Destroy Black Boys opens with explaining what genocide is, the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political or cultural group (p. 1). The author, Jawanza Kunjufu (2005), has been challenged many times in debates and by the media with the use of the word conspiracy to describe certain aspects of the African-American society. It is a strong indictment against the social fabric of this country (p. 1). Neely Fuller stated, “…until you understand White supremacy, everything else will confuse you.” There have been many people such as, historians, politicians, academicians, and writes who believe they have a theoretical justification for White supremacy. Arnold Toynbe, a historian, stated that, “When we classify mankind by color, the only one of the primary races… which has not made a creative contribution to civilization is the Black race.” Thomas Jefferson, a former President, stated, “I advanced it, that the Blacks are inferior to the Whites in the endowments of body and mind…” (p. 3) White supremacy is continued through society for decades. It is clearly displayed in Charles Murray and Richard Herrnstein’s Bell Curve. In the Bell Curve, IQ-intelligence quotient; was said to be between 40-80% heritable. Meaning, much of the observed variation in IQ is genetic. Kunjufu questioned how Murray and Herrnstein scientifically determined the percentage difference, 40-80%. Also, he questioned how did they do what no other scholar has been able to do and that is separate the impact of genetics from environment to develop their conclusion. Kunjufu believed there are five African-American scholars to explain the origins and purpose of White supremacy. They are: Cheik Anta Diop; Civilization of Barbarism, Bobby Wright; Psychopathic Racial Personality, Marimba Ani; Yurugu, Neely Fuller, Jr; United Independent Compensatory Code/System/Concept, and Frances C. Welsing; Isis Papers (p.
