The United States, for generations has led the world in economics, industry, science  and countless other areas. Americans have claimed much of this success is attributed to its exceptionalism. Given the number of immigrants, including myself, who fled their homeland in search of a better life in the U.S., that claim is hard to dispute. However, in the last two decades, and more concentrated in the past four years, America seems to be on a fast decline and is no longer considered, by most, the shining city on a hill. More Americans are moving away from democratic ideology and accepting lies and totalitarianism. There is an ongoing push to reduce or reverse voting rights. On January 6th the world witness an insurrection led by the former president. All these events share a concerning similarity to political instabilities occurring in third world dictatorship countries. Furthermore, the delayed 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games has started and we are seeing historical first time defeats for American Teams.  


Topic questions of the week:

  • Is America exceptional?
  • What, in your opinion, justifies America’s claim of exceptionalism?
  • How does United States’ military shape this exceptionalism?
  • Is the idea of American Exceptionalism synonymous to white supremacy?
  • Has the idea of American Exceptionalism impede equality for black people? 
  • Has America lost the right to claim its exceptionalism?
  • Can America maintain or regain its right to claim its exceptionalism? How/Why not?


Ongoing Topics:

:
  1. Creation of a Black First Manifesto. Link to working document https://docs.google.com/document/d/1dNyYytr0gMbfOtvAzj_nh1li3ZYuIXfpyOrlHzce56k/edit?usp=sharing
  2. Creation of a cryptocurrency backed by precious mineral.

We hold these sessions every Saturday for 6 hours from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM EDT. This gives members from all timezones the opportunity to join.

    Looking forward to speaking with you.

    Blaqsbi for mental liberation

    Mainstream social media has been weaponized against black people. Yes, they allow us to create groups and pages dedicated to black people on their platforms. Because they are all controlled by people who are working hard to keep white supremacy alive, the minute we post something positive about black empowerment or expose rampant racism we end up in social media jail.

    We must have a place where we control our narrative. Welcome to Blaqsbi. Our mission is to be the ultimate black social media platform where we can speak freely, share ideas, gain economic freedom, organize and unite without fear of white supremacist censorship and surveillance.

    We are 715,401 members strong and growing. Join the mental liberation.
