I wrote this on Facebook in response to a video and thought that it would be nice to place here. Black power is not a tool of oppression. It is a tool of empowerment (self esteem, self love, self aware, self worth). It is a tool of internal self assurance. White power/supremacy has been specifically used as a tool of oppression/domination. It has been used outwardly to control and subdue. When oppressed people seek to rise the oppressor sees this as a threat, because secretly they fear that black power will mean oppression and subjugation.
