James C. Rollins Announces Release of ‘From the Curse of Willie Lynch to the New African American Generation’

New book in series shows readers how to create a future for themselves, their family and their community

From the Curse of Willie Lynch to the New African American Generation by James C. Rollins

Fort Washington, MD — In author James C. Rollins’ third installment in his series of books about African American’s place in America, From the Curse of Willie Lynch to the New African American Generation (published by Trafford Publishing), readers find themselves navigating the treacherous years between Martin Luther King Jr.’s death and Barack Obama’s election to presidency. “The book discusses how African Americans can now begin to believe in themselves and build a strong society,” says Rollins. “This is the era of the awakening.”

Each chapter is broken into an easy-to-follow format where Rollins guides readers through the important elements needed to create a proud, strong, black segment of American society. Readers will learn about such topics as: New young leadership, Sound and viable educational opportunities, Wealth building, Political power.

“Black readers should understand that the media can no longer define African Americans as society’s socially dependent misfits. I want my readers to understand the journey is not over. They must understand that we have been to the top of the mountain before, after the end of slavery, only to allow ourselves to be re-enslaved,” states Rollins. “We got to the top of the mountain again after the passage of the Civil Rights Act in 1965, only to allow drugs to take it away from us again. We must commit to never allow anybody or anything to keep Black people from building their Shining City on the Hill….”

Excerpts:

FINAL SUMMARY

True black history has been benchmarked by a series of social engineering events designed to diminish or destroy African American society. We are today, the product of adverse political, social, and legal events at every turn.

Life under slavery was awful; Emancipation was supposed to eliminate those conditions. Emancipation gifted newly freed slaves with, the rebirth of white supremacy in the South which was accompanied by Black Codes, Chain Gangs, Peonage, Convict Leasing, and finally the Ku Klux Klan.

Out-migration from slavery should have been the beginning of a dream based on the initial success of Black Wall Street. Black Wall Street should have been used as the shining example going forward because it represented what Black community-building success should look like.
Cabrini Greene, the end of the migration dream, represented the devastating effects of racial, social engineering. After the U.S. Supreme Court declared in 1888 racially based housing ordinances unconstitutional in 1917, segregation released the creative spirits of those who would oppress and dominate the weak and defenseless. Thus Cabrini Greene.

The Washington, D.C. public school system, before integration, was an example of a productive teaching/learning experience for Black children. That system used the considerable advantage that segregation created; the highest educated black professionals had few opportunities for employment. Thus they turned to education.

When school de-segregation started, the Black community focused only on college-level preparation, which ultimately lost most Black students. The result was a large portion of black students failed to meet minimum academic standards- they had little educational interest.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 ended segregation in public places and banned employment discrimination by race, color, religion, sex or national origin, was considered to be one of the crowning legislative achievements of the civil rights movement. The truth was that the Civil Rights Act bought black America heroin, crack cocaine, and the beginning of the end of intact black families as a method of undermining black completion. African Americans had become a society of drug addicts that continue to this day, ultimately preventing them from participating in developing wealth.

New York City’s “man in the house rule” required welfare workers to make unannounced visits to determine if fathers were living in the home – if evidence of a male presence was found, cases were closed and welfare checks discontinued. Thus the beginning of the end of intact black families. Ronald Reagan’s “Welfare Queen” narrative only reinforced existing white stereotypes about blacks.

The Nixon campaign in 1968 and the Nixon White House had two enemies: the anti-war left and black people. John Ehrlichman stated in a radio interview: “We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or blacks, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities.”

There was a media’s portrayal of the African American community during the 1980s crack epidemic with countless stories of incurable “crack babies” who would inevitably grow up to be criminals. The “culture of poverty” welfare queens and poor people were themselves the cause of drug abuse, and the only solution to protect (white society) was swift, harsh and unrelenting punishment comprizing long jail sentences through the “War on Drugs.”
