Makes Me Wanna Holla Marcus Kwame Anderson

The Twelve Steps of Black Anon

  1. We admitted we were powerless over racists and racist behavior – that our lives had become unmanageable because we gave them our power.
  2. We came to believe that our Gods – greater than the racists and racist behavior –  could restore us to sanity.
  3. We made a decision to turn hurt and scars caused by racists and racist behavior, over to the care of our Gods, and take their guidance on how to win the race.
  4. We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of the influence of racists and racist behavior in our lives, and our own response behavior.
  5. We admitted to our Gods, to ourselves, and to other trustworthy survivors and warriors, the exact nature of the influence of racists and racist behavior in our lives, and our response behavior.
  6. We were entirely ready to have our Gods help us to remove all the influence of racists and racist behavior from our lives, and to help us change our response behavior among ourselves.
  7. We accept the help from our Gods to remove all the influence of the racists and racist behavior from our lives, and to help us change our response behavior among ourselves.
  8. We made a list of all the racists and racist behavior that have harmed us, and became willing to demand amends for ourselves and to make amends among ourselves.
  9. We made direct amends to ourselves and among ourselves, wherever possible, except when to do so would harm us.
  10. We continued to take inventory of the influence of racists and racist behavior in our lives, and when we would still find the influence, promptly seek to root it out.
  11. We sought through discipline, education, and meditation to improve our conscious contact within ourselves and with our Gods, praying for knowledge of the plan of our Gods for us – instead of the will and influence of racists and racist behaviors – and the power to win the race.
  12. We had a spiritual awakening as the result of working the steps, and we tried to carry this message to other Black People who are influenced by racists or racist behavior, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
