The purpose of this book and volume is to examine the intergenerational conditions that impairs the emotional and mental health of African-Americans. This condition is identified as a Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome (PTSS), like Dr. De Gruy Leary, among other prominent researchers. It is a form of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) caused by the genetic imprint of slavery and racial animus upon Black Americans from previous generations. This book looks into the inception and development of the ensuing multigenerational trauma. It determines its effects on longevity and quality of life issues. This volume looks at the impact of racial devaluation upon the Stockholm Syndrome on blacks that heightens PTSS. The emphasis is on how to reduce the impact of PTSS. Awareness of the problem is stressed as at least halfway to a cure or much healthier outlook. This is done by pursing the truth regarding the true value of African-Americans to the nation, providing insight into why the bloodiest war of the nation was fought to preserve wealth generated from black slave labor and why such patterns persist in other forms today through psychological bondage and systemic injustice. The book examines how white resentment against black gains in civil rights, employment and socioeconomic status formulated an insidious New Jim Crow Era which is subtle, denied but more effective than its preceding form. The "Southern Strategy" used by Reagan and his followers is scrutinized and viewed as the root of Donald J. Trump's white nationalist movement. The preceding Jim Crow Era is recalled as a period which Trump considered "America's Greatest" but an epoch of horrendous racial terror when lynching was prevalent in many areas of the South and Midwest. The subsequent New Jim Crow Era is highlighted as an epoch where extralegal killings of unarmed blacks by police officers and vigilante killings significantly exceed lynching in the former epoch. Under Trump's ethno-national leadership, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), the American Nazi Party and other white nationalist groups and individuals are once again marching on Washington DC to triumph in the reign of their uncontested racial supremacy and animus. The media is examined as accomplishes in this present-day racial triumph by reinforcing negative racial stereotypes that devalue the humanity of blacks and other people of color.
