Rohn Kenyatta is a native Californian that has three children, all of them girls and believes that all of the world's problems could be solved if "we were all just good to children". He raises the youngest child alone and has since her birth. He runs a small consulting firm that provides corporate legal documentation to various governmental compliance agencies. His artcles and opinions have been published by numerous newspapers and media outlets; including The Los Angeles Sentinel, CNN, Black Agenda Report, OpEd News and Russia News Now (RNN).

The United States is a nation that has refused to examine and accept the damage that it has done to an entire race of people. A nation that constantly tells the Black Person in America to forget and "get over it" when the very names that most carry are those of people who kidnapped, murdered and raped them. Mr. Kenyatta often says: "I am here to destroy the myth that Black People in America are poorly read, poorly spoken and incapable of eloquence and advanced thought of any type. I am no man's minstrel nor a gladiator for his entertainment, but I am a pragmatic warrior. I make it my business to point out the obvious."

There is a reason why the United States has never formally apologized for the enslavement of Black People in America. Hurricane Katrina and what took place in New Orleans made it abundantly clear that Black People in America remain second class citizens and Black lives do not matter. Never have, as one can never overcome being a commodity instead of a human. That is a legacy that can not be easily jettisoned and there is no existing model to compare it to.

Kimba The White Lion: The Linguistics of White Supremacy (Part I) As the United States once again embarks upon another of its perpetual "discussions on race" few realize the damaging inculcation of white supremacy that occurs at the earliest stages of life and throughout adulthood. Much of it is linguistic.
