  • C-Section and Racism: “Cutting” to the Heart of the Issue for
           Black Women and Families
    • Abstract: Abstract Cesarean section (C-section) is one of the leading surgeries performed worldwide today, especially in the USA, Europe, China, and Brazil. While a great number of news and scholarly outlets are talking about the “global C-section epidemic” (e.g., Associated Press 2010), few are alerting communities to the excessive rate of these operations specifically among Black women. This paper addresses the disproportionate rate of surgical birthing in communities of African descent, informs readers of common health consequences, and re-presents pre-colonial gynecological care. In the end, C-sections are shown to be anti-African in philosophy and anti-Black in social and psychological practice where racism exists. Readers are encouraged to reimagine how C-section is perceived as a medical procedure and community occurrence.

  • Conceptualizing the Blackground : Framing Attempts and Acts of
    • Abstract: Abstract Differences in the perception of people stem primarily from the worldview of the observer. In the USA, individuals who are not part of the immediate dominant culture are often marginalized. What happens when a communication situation attempts to remind individuals of their already known marginalized status? Using a phenomenological approach, this study seeks to highlight reactions to attempts at and acts of the re-marginalization of Blacks. The researchers choose to call this relegation to the social periphery, a Blackground experience.

  • Moving Forward with the Legitimation of the Azibo Nosology II
    • Abstract: Abstract What have mental health practitioners to rely on for diagnosis of African descent clients that respectfully incorporates behavioral imperatives from centered African culture? The original 1989 Azibo Nosology contained 18 African-centered culture-focused disorders. Twenty-five years later, the 2014 Azibo Nosology II (ANII) was published open access in the Journal of Pan African Studies (volume 7, #5, 32-145) as a 2nd edition. In it, there are 55 disorders deriving from theory about the African personality construct. It draws on the work of 22 theorists writing over a 60-year span. To penetrate psychological establishmentarianism requires the ANII be perceived as legitimate. Under the backdrop of the quest for freedom and literacy by African descent people, legitimation is approached through (1) discussion of slave and colonial consciousness of African descent psychological workers including practitioners, (2) lingering colonial mentality among Eurasian descent practitioners and psychological workers, and (3) necessary future clinical work that practitioners can carry out now in daily praxis.

  • African Americans and Trayvon Martin: Black Racial Identity Profiles and
           Emotional Responding
    • Abstract: Abstract Public opinion polls suggest that many African Americans viewed the death of Trayvon Martin as a race-related event (Gabbidon and Jordan 2013; Pew Research Center 2013). This exploratory online investigation examined African Americans’ general reactions to the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin as well as the link between Black racial identity cluster profiles and race-related stress reactions (i.e., anger and sense of safety). Participants had a range of reactions, including questioning whether the shooting was racially motivated as well as self-reporting anger and sadness. Three Black racial identity profile groups were identified. Profile group 1 consisted of individuals with each of the different Black racial identity attitude types being below the mean (i.e., undifferentiated). Group 2 consisted of individuals with lower levels of centrality and nationalist ideologies with all other racial identity types being above the mean (i.e., integrationist). Finally, group 3 consisted of individuals with a positive African American identity as indicated by greater levels of centrality, private regard, and nationalist ideology (i.e., race focused). Only their public regard, assimilationist and humanist ideology attitudes fell below the mean. Further analysis indicated that individuals with a race focused Black racial identity cluster profile specifically self-reported higher levels of anger and were more likely to indicate feeling unsafe after learning about Trayvon Martin’s death.

  • E. E. Just and Creativity in Science. The Importance of Diversity
    • Abstract: Abstract Renowned biologist Ernest Everett Just (1883–1941) was an outspoken advocate for the classical embryologist’s view of the cell; he believed that all the parts of the cell, but especially the cytoplasm, have important roles to play in the process of development, whereby a one-celled zygote becomes a many-celled animal. In opposition to geneticist Thomas Hunt Morgan, Just formulated a hypothesis for how the cell works in development, one that gave a more dominant role to cytoplasmic (instead of nuclear) factors. This paper argues that, in creating his hypothesis, Just applied insights from the African American intellectual community in which he was immersed, much as Charles Darwin applied insights from British political economist Thomas R. Malthus in formulating his theory of evolution by natural selection. This in no way diminishes the scientific validity of Just’s (or Darwin’s) hypothesis. Rather, it highlights Just’s creativity and, as such, points to the importance of having diversity in science.

  • On the Perpetuation of the Situation of Economic and Social
           Underdevelopment in Africa
    • Abstract: Abstract Why do the majority of African countries fail to take the steps that would lead them towards greater development? The aim of this work is to determine the factors affecting development, not only the economic ones, which play a central role in economic literature, but also social. To do so, we have used a wide sample of countries and have estimated a panel data for 171 countries of those that have been members of the United Nations (UN) for a period of 16 years (from 1995 to 2010 inclusive). Our results lead us to conclude that monetary instability and the colonial past of these countries have had a negative impact on their level of human development. However, improvements in the efficiency of governmental policy and instruments, investment in greater democracy, greater stability and less corruption, have, in all cases, a positive effect on human development in these countries.

  • Anti-Racist Racism as a Judicial Decree: Racism in the Twenty-First
    • Abstract: Abstract Racism is the by-product of European imperialism. By definition, anti-racism is a prejudicial function linked with fear, stress, or various forms of power-loss anxiety. Data tends to show that not only are black adult males over-represented in the criminal justice system as the focus of said power-loss anxiety but their adolescent counterparts are as well. The fact that society tolerates the black male as a societal failure is a matter of anti-racist racism sanctioned by judicial decree. Furthermore, in its decree, the Supreme Court facilitated anti-racist racism via opposition to affirmative action enabling the most marginal among white applicants in lieu of non-white applicants whose racial contributions stood to move society as a whole forward. The most conscientious among the citizenry must then necessarily take it upon themselves to reverse judicial decree, i.e., anti-racist racism to meet the racial challenges of the twenty-first century and beyond.

  • You Moved Up, Did You Forget Us?: The Influence of African American
           Intra-familial Social Mobility on Extended Family Relationships
    • Abstract: Abstract This study explored the extent to which changes in socioeconomic status influenced the willingness or ability of extended family members to adhere to family scripts regarding interaction and resource sharing. Ethnographic methodology was utilized to examine the lived experience of the members of one large, extended African American family with its roots in a rural area of North Carolina. The results suggest that interaction is maintained despite changes in socioeconomic status among family members but that the interaction is transformed as one rises in socioeconomic status. The results also suggest that certain levels of ambiguous loss may occur as a result of the changing family relationships.

  • The CEO of Self: Herman Cain, Black Conservatism and the Achievement
    • Abstract: Abstract In his autobiography This Is Herman Cain, conservative business executive and former Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain attributes his success to the hard work ethic and perseverance instilled in him by his father. Cain asserts that possessing a positive mindset or as he states becoming the “CEO of Self” played a major role in his ability to transcend the various hurdles he faced as a young African-American male growing up in the Deep South during the civil rights era. Cain’s line of thinking fits within the paradigm of the American achievement ideology, but I argue that Cain’s idealized construction of an American society where racism’s impact on the opportunity chances of African-Americans is minimal ultimately allows for the maintenance of an American social structure where “whiteness” reigns supreme.

  • Slave Religion, Slave Hiring, and the Incipient Proletarianization of
           Enslaved Black Labor: Developing Du Bois’ Thesis on Black
           Participation in the Civil War as a Revolution
    • Abstract: Abstract WEB Du Bois argued that black participation in the US Civil War was “the largest and most successful slave revolt,” but he did not link the causative agents of black participation in the war to those that motivated other major slave revolts in the antebellum USA. In this essay, I focus on how two factors contributed to such revolts: (1) slave religion, which provided an ideological justification for overthrowing the slave system and mobile slave preachers to articulate it, and (2) the system of hiring out slaves—especially slave artisans, which increased their disaffection with the slave system, while expanding networks across plantations and rural and urban slave and free black communities. I argue that these two factors provided ideological motivation and institutional coordination for the antebellum revolts and for the slave revolt of the Civil War, as well.

  • Examining the Value of Social Capital and Social Support for Black
           Student-Athletes’ Academic Success
    • Abstract: Abstract The purpose of this study is to understand how social capital and social support influence the academic success of Black student-athletes that attend predominantly White institutions of higher education (PWIHEs). Utilizing a qualitative approach, the authors conducted narrative interviews to understand the experiences of Black student-athletes (N = 9) at a PWIHE in the southwestern region of the USA. Employing critical race theory, the Black student-athletes revealed their experiential realities as a racial minority within the academic environment. The findings revealed that their academic success was contingent upon their interactions with faculty as their status as Black student-athletes promoted positive and negative interactions. As such, Black student-athletes leveraged their social capital, or social networks consisting of parents and family, to provide social support. Acknowledging the unique “culture” of student-athletes, college and university athletic departments and their personnel may find it beneficial to create proactive avenues for parental engagement to aid in student-athlete adjustment and matriculation.

  • Educational Expectations Among African American Suburban Low to Moderate
           Income Public High School Students
    • Abstract: Abstract This study examined the educational expectations and value of education among St. Louis, suburban, low to moderate income, African American male and female adolescents. The following factors: perceptions of parents’ expectations, teachers’ expectations, and neighborhood quality were examined to explore the academic gender disparity among African American high school students. Quantitative analyses showed that perceptions of teachers’ and parents’ expectations were associated with students’ educational expectations and value of education. The analyses also showed that some demographic variables were associated with teachers’ and parents’ expectations and value of education. No significant gender differences emerged between African American males and females for educational expectations.

  • Slaves to the Community: Blacks and the Rhetoric of “Selling
    • Abstract: Abstract In 2008, Randall Kennedy, the Michael R. Klein Professor of Law at Harvard University, published Sellout: The Politics of Racial Betrayal. In this work, Kennedy provided both a historical and a contemporary discussion of the term “sellout” as well as a defense of its usage among blacks. In this essay, I critique Kennedy’s work and argue that the rhetoric of “selling out” functions as a mechanism of social control meant to keep blacks on “their side” of the color line.

  • The Racial Exceptionalism of Barack Obama
    • Abstract: Abstract Since Barack Obama appeared on the political scene, questions regarding the authenticity of his blackness have remained at the forefront because of his mixed race parentage and nontraditional upbringing. These factors proved to be variously a political asset and liability as his blackness was often framed as scary to white voters who were essential to his electoral coalition. We argue that in order for whites to trust Obama politically, they divorced him from his black identity making him the “racial exception,” which made him more palatable. This, in part, was influenced by the deracialized electoral strategies deployed by Barack Obama. Still, we find race influences evaluations of Barack Obama differently by blacks and whites. Relying on data from the Pew Research Center, we find evidence that Barack Obama’s racial identity is more ambiguous for whites and evaluations of his favorability, values, and tenor of his opposition to fall along racial lines in significant ways despite the rhetoric of a post-racial America.

  • The African Traveller and the Chinese Customs Official: Ethnic Minority
           Profiling at Border Check Points in Hong Kong and China?
    • Abstract: Abstract Stronger government-to-government relations between Africa and China in the first two decades of the twenty-first century have led to an increasing presence of African travellers at Chinese border check points. This is a novel situation involving cross-linguistic and cross-cultural communication dynamics that we need to understand from different research perspectives: linguistic, socio-economic, and legal, among others. Academic studies are already detailing some misunderstandings between Chinese customs, immigration and public security officials and African travellers and immigrants, who are clearly a visible minority group, both at border check points and in the wider Chinese communities (Bodomo 2010; Bodomo and Ma 2010; Bodomo 2012). A number of questions may be asked towards understanding the cross-cultural dynamics involved in this novel situation. What are Chinese immigration and customs officials’ experiences with African travellers and how do they see and handle this visible minority ethnic group? What are, in turn, African experiences with Chinese immigration, customs, and public security, officials both at border check points and in the wider Chinese communities in places like mainland China and Hong Kong? To answer these questions, a profile of the most frequent African visitors to Hong Kong and China is constructed, based on research among Africans in China, particularly Guangzhou. An outline is then made of what Africans think of Chinese customs and immigration officials as a whole, what kind of treatment they expect on arrival in China and how they prepare for it. It is then claimed that the most fundamental issue that causes friction, unhappiness and sometimes lack of cooperation from African travellers at immigration and customs check points in Hong Kong and other places in China is not so much due to linguistic and cultural misunderstanding as it is due to stereotyping and, in extreme cases, (un)conscious racial profiling. Finally, it is proposed that the best way for Hong Kong and other Chinese customs personnel to serve African immigrants is to apply immigration rules using systematically fair, just and colour-blind strategies.
