Rebranding - The 5/5ths Equal Human Being Strategy Playbook

The "Functional Culture" blog is now "The 5/5ths Equal Human Being Strategy Playbook".

In the line up of the affiliated blogs that I manage:

"The 5/5ths Equal Human Being Strategy Playbook" is distinguished from these others as it has a goal of presenting frameworks for solutions to the issues that presently plague the Black community.  If "Within The Black Community" is "tough love", providing critical analysis of how policies and politics are hijacking our potential then "5/5ths" attempts to connect the Black community's thoughts & actions with our community based goals.

The common theme of these posts is the critical assumption that 'Black People Are 100% Equal'.
The use of Black Inferiority as a political bargaining strategy has had deliriousness impact upon our psyche and our organic efforts to stand tall as a community.

The real "struggle" for Black people in the diaspora is in the "inner space".  The ability to align our culture, our institutions and our resources in a way that lifts up our community based on the choice of the people who will benefit from the strategic investments and temporary "denials of self gratification" for long term prosperity.
