In school they never teach about Haile Selassie I or Marcus Garvey or anyone that would have a positive effect on us Youths. I have been learning about the Holocaust since 6th grade, and after going to 8 different high schools so far in my 3 years of attending high school they have taught me plenty about Mussolini and Hitler.
The school year starts soon, and I will be attending Missouri Options, a credit recovery program in which one studies then takes a GED test (Graduate Equivalency Diploma) but instead if one passes he or she would recieve Diploma instead. The reason this program has been established is because the GED is no longer the best way to reach employment. I did not choose for this program to be something I apply myself to, it was by the work of the State System that put me in that position.
I know as a livicated Rastafarian that in schools they never teach anything that has positive effects. The textbooks never teach about Haile Selassie I so I have made the possible mistake of focusing on my livity, and sustaining it, and ignoring education. But I also know school promotes nationalism, assimilation of minority peoples, and the illusion called patriotism, all with capitalistic ideals and thoughts.
They tell us youths to stand up to perform the pledge of allegiance with our right hand over our hearts facing the American flag, but Haile Selassie I teaches us to show not ultimate allegiance to nations, but to the fellow men within the human community.
The school provides classes in learning international languages like German, French, and Spanish, but never Amharic, Twi, Baluba, etc.
So the high school is Babylon. And without high school no one can reach university education.
