This upcoming year’s new release is from Author Reuel-Azriel, better known as THE FLEUR. He imparts his wisdom on how to become an Aristocrat. It is not an inherited life founded on wealth and birth, but one based on virtue and talents. To be an effective ingredient in society one must have a certain understanding of himself in correlation to the other ingredients in this melting pot of America. There is indeed classism disguised as racism and vice versa. How does one combat this artificial aristocracy? Thomas Jefferson contends, “That provisions should be made to prevent its ascendency”. The Fluer contends, “That a new ancestry should emerge from behind the curtains of slavery, racism, prejudices, and segregation and usher in an era of Aristocracy so flavorful that it shapes all institutions with attributes such as unbiased judgment, compassion, experiential self-knowledge, self-transcendence and non-attachment, and virtues such as ethics and benevolence to advance aristocratism”. Who else better than the Afro American descendants?
A person who has the tastes, manners, and notable characteristic of members of an elite class are known to be monumental figures in society. There has been a common misleading fact that the Greeks and Romans were the only class of elites. It has also been a common understatement, notably in American society, that there were no Afro American groups who lived in an era of distinguished principles. It is evident that the African diaspora belonged to a priestly dynasty of Aristocrats. However, the diaspora might have omitted that from the history of the African expats.
The term aristokratia was first used in Athens with reference to young citizens (the men of the ruling class) who led armies at the front line. Aristokratia roughly translates to “rule of the best born”. These brave young men to their martial bravery were highly regarded as a virtue in all of Greece. They were herald as the best.
The idea of a black aristocracy, a black 400, or an “old upper class” was so alien to whites that admittedly there was resentment and scorn. Could there really be a social class of unwittingly ingenious slaves and free slaves? Who embodied the literacy of wealth, the emulation of sophistication; and adorned formal social norms that categorized them as individuals; elite families of exceptional character, superior to whites.
To perpetuate the myth that the Afro American, and its black society, is a homogeneous group of free slaves with no significant and lucid distinctions when it comes to race, creed, background, prestige, attitude, behavior and or power. Is often a credence perceived as a Jim Crow way of viewing non-black excellence in society? The black elite were solidified during the forty years following the end of the Reconstruction period. To legitimize their proclamation as an elite class, or the latter description, an aristocracy. A sufficiently large selection of Afro American communities formed, and shared, an image of themselves, as superior in the Black experience, as it relates to their counter communities. They embraced black culture, sophistication, and achievements as pillars of an emerging new dignified people. No longer the grotesque slave; no longer viewed as an outcast member of a community belonging to one of the great civilizations (Greek, Roman, Christian). But a new cultural creature The Black Elite who would be identified, by itself and by others as the: “colored aristocracy,” “the black 400,” “upper tens,” and the “best society”.
