Black Middle Class: Promoting the Black Man in Our Community

Black Middle Class: Promoting the Black Man in Our Community

loving black coupleWith the rise of feminism, a lot of Black women have gotten swept away in the trash. Some Black women recognize that the talking points for the latest feminist movement, do not even apply to Black women. Those have a hard time convincing or making it clear to those that do. What they fail to realize at their base core, is that we are Black first, then divided by economics and then divided by sex. So before even approaching feminism, a Black woman has to wade through racism, and then wade through classicism, to get to the feminist agenda. Those Black women that get it, get it. It doesn’t take much to realize that it is all smoke and mirrors for Black folk. A Black woman in the feminist movement is just another number. There is nothing in the feminist movement for the Black woman, nor is it even beneficial to the Black woman. Except, it does one thing, pits the Black woman against the Black man. And, this is where most Black women wake up suddenly.

Leave the Black Community Out of the Feminist vs Men’s Rights War

Leave the Black Community Out of it

stokely carmichaelThere is a growing warfare in the white communities of America, Canada and Europe. The sides are the Feminists vs the PUA, MGTOW AND MRA.

The feminists get billions of dollars worldwide annually. They get laws passed like any domestic violence call, a policeman is required to arrest the man, regardless of evidence, regardless if he is the very one that called the police on the wife. They get laws passed like, if a woman merely claims any abuse in the home, in a paternity rights proceeding, the police, child protective services and court is to immediately deny all paternity rights to the man. They get laws passed like, if a woman merely claims abuse, violence or even mere aggression [i.e. strong words] the man can be removed from his own home and forbidden from returning, by law, upon threat of incarceration.

In reaction to this the MRA formed, to remove such laws and give men their constitutional rights. In response to this the MGTOW AND PUA split from that movement, seeing it as useless. The MGTOW and PUA are of the attitude that the system is broken, beyond repair and that the MRA is simply spinning its wheels.

This is purely a white community argument. This is purely a privileged group thumbing their nose at another privileged group. And, in the process they’re throwing people in jail, they’re breaking up homes and they’re rendering kids fatherless, without any fathers in their lives.

The argument that this is about some vengeance against supposed wrong doing by some imaginary patriarchy falls and should fall on deaf ears in the Black community. While white women might think they have some beef with their white husbands, Black women have no such beef with their Black husbands. Black men and women got the right to vote at the very same instant that white women got to vote. Nearly everything that the first and second suffrage movement accomplished for white women, by proxy included the entire Black community.

However, the feminists keep trying to suck in Black women, and by proxy oppose Black men. We don’t need any more enemies. We don’t need our Black wives to start coming out against us. This is not our fight. We don’t have a dog in this fight. Our women weren’t oppressed by us. When the Black man was beaten and hung in trees, we had to rely on the Black women, that white feminists are now trying to embrace so tightly, to keep our kids alive, fed and clothed. When our young Black gentlemen are illegally searched, fabricated with charges, denied due process, denied real legal representation and sentenced to over the maximum allowed by law, we have to rely on our Black ladies to rear our children.

Leave the Black community out of your fight. Stop poisoning our young Black gentlemen against our young Black ladies. Stop poisoning our young Black ladies against our young Black gentlemen. The Black man never kept the Black woman from voting. The Black man didn’t make the Black woman go to the back of the bus. The Black man never raped the Black woman in the slave quarters. The Black woman never beat the Black man to death out of boredom, and got away scott free without so much as a jury trial.

Stop trying to include the Black community in your shenanigans. We don’t want it. You want us to be equal, then we reserve the right to freely decline your advances to get involved in your mess.

African American Manifesto: My Black Agenda for Mellenium 2000

African American Manifesto: My Black Agenda for Millennium 2000

African Slaves[I am touched that you wrote me. I have been planning to start a Black business bureau for some time now. I have not written out the plan, but this seems as good a time as any. This letter will not only go to you, but I am now, because you inspired me, will be sending this out to every Black church, Black politician, Black organization in the entire country. I can dedicate a few thousand to this letter and campaign. I am also an online marketing genius and will be doing a major press release of this letter as well. Thank you for inspiring me. Here’s my response to you.]

When African slaves were sold or stolen from Africa, they were first sent to an island just off the coast of west Africa. On this island, they were mind-wiped and the men were brainwashed against the women. For, 95% of Africans were sent to central and south America. In central and south America Africans could hope to live the ripe old age of 23. However, they actually were treated quite a bit better, since they learned skills. However, because their death rate was so high, they never grew in population.

Well, what about that 5% that was sent to America? Because the US had a constitution that said “all men are created equal”, Americans went overboard to make sure Africans were never seen as humans. They went through TWO different mind-wiping sessions. One off the coast of Louisiana, and a 3rd at the auction blocks. However,they were treated with kid gloves, compared to south America. However, they were kept as dumb as rocks. They learned absolutely nothing and it was forbidden to teach them anything, by law. Americans were deathly afraid they would revolt, which actually happened several time, but was kept to just that city. One town was completely slaughtered by Africans. There is even a famous painting about it, however this is not taught in public education.

When slavery was abolished in the US, Africans had been able to live to a much higher age than in south America and grew to be 30% of the population. However, these Africans had been mind-wiped 3 separate times, stripped of religion, origin, family, and culture. Upon their release they knew nothing, literally nothing.

Africans had to teach themselves how to read and write, make a family, farm for themselves, etc. Two things they could not teach themselves: their religion; their cultural origins. Even with these horrible odds, Africans became 80% literate in 50 years, something unheard of in human history.

While there were Africans that flourished in the new free era, most barely got by. A lot were slaughtered by racist white people who saw African freedmen as an economic threat to their livelihood. Many new laws were passed to keep tools out of the Africans hands; minimum wage laws were passed to keep people from hiring Africans; and anything produced by Africans was not allowed to come to market. Many African farmers went under from not being able to sell their produce.

The answer is not a question of just pouring money into the modern African American community. It requires a COMPLETE overhaul.

  • – branding: African Americans need to be branded as a viable and independent political group with our own identity, culture, religion and origin from Africa
  • – BRANDING: we need to produce new art, media, entertainment that if Pan-African, African centered and African inspired, with Africans as the only people in such media [THIS IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN ALL OTHER POINTS]
  • – we need to denounce any and all other groups that try to co-op our history, culture and art, who systematically claim it as their own and as their origination [like the Egyptian story; jewish story; our music; our culture]
  • – as a political group we need to acquire and send lobbyist to every state legislature and the federal congress, to lobby for African political and economic gains [NOT CIVIL RIGHTS]; we need things like the war on drugs stopped, which was intended and used as a racial profiling thing to send Africans into the prison system, to the tune of 75% of all Africans in prison today are there based on drug charges, to the tune of a $75 BILLION a year price tag; we need to remove all racist legislation; we need to understand, read and hold politicians responsible to the constitution, which is our best and only way to eradicate racist legislation; we need to remove Africans off of all social welfare legislation, this has destroyed the African family
  • black married couple and kids– as an independent political group we need to divorce ourselves from the Democrat party; if we are serious about our independence we need to have the capability to vote as a group; voting for the Democrat party has made the Democrats take our votes and voice for granted
  • – we need to control African finance and African money; we need to open and gather in every city African run, operated and owned credit unions; we need to aggressively educate and finance African business; we need to arrest and stop any 3rd parties that are financing and control African business
  • – we need to control all African disposable income and spending; we need to arrest and stop any 3rd parties that are selling commodities in our communites and to Africans in America
  • – we need to control all African necessary expenditures, this includes food, energy and real property; we need to arrest and stop any 3rd party that controls necessities Africans have to pay for
  • – we need to go into our communities, move back in, fix them up, and open up all forms of business that Africans need and use on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis; we need to target and pick locations that have high concentrations of Africans already in them and do our best to move out 3rd parties; we need to open up convenience stores, credit unions, grocers, transportation and everything else needed, in each community so that Africans do not need to go outside of the community to spend money.
  • – we need to start regional stock markets that trade in African produce, commodities, and equities in African firms; this will get African farmers to produce and transport their produce to African stores as one big giant economic circle
  • – we need to connect these regional stock markets with stock markets in the motherland, which are now booming and coming online; 2 new major stock markets have come online recently in Africa and they need more business
  • – we need to understand that marriage is the most stabilizing social factor in our modern time, and we need to encourage our community to get married at every opportunity; marriage also is very strategic and economically good for both people; we need to launch a national campaign to encourage Africans to marry each other; we need to put African marriage in front of our people, through pictures, art, music, entertainment and as a sound business strategy [since it is more economic to be married]
  • – we need to purchase and take private, all historically Black Colleges; we need to control all African education; we need to arrest and stop 3rd parties from mis-educating our African youth, young adults and young professionals; this is exactly what all other groups do; we need to open and start vocational and skill based education for high school and young African adults; we need to access and encourage our youth to understand what they are good at, what they desire and to realize that college is not the answer for nearly 60% of the population; we need to educate our youth that colleges are a business and that they are putting out propaganda that you “should” go to college, in order to rake in money, at the young African’s expense, which they’ll be paying for, for decades; we need to encourage our young African to develop skills, such as automotive, electrical, plumbing etc, for blue collar paychecks, instead of minimum wage

If we are to survive this next century, we need to take some serious stock of what we are doing. We need to realize that, unless we get organized and think of ourselves as a group, we will be treated as chattel, misused, miseducated, and state dependent victims to a socialist state, with our wealth stolen year after year.

As it stands now, Africans in America cannot do anything to protect, save or help our countries in the motherland. Our people are being raped, murdered and wealth stolen by nearly every western power on the planet, and now Asia is getting in on the taking. We need to clean our house and get it in order.

Black, Single, Men, with No Kids: The Truth

Black Single Men

Turn on any movie, TV show or open any magazine and you’ll find all sorts of subtle stereotypes being presented about Black Men. Although 75% of current African Americans have a slave as an ancestor, Black men are called lazy. Although Black people were systematically raped, families torn apart, robbed, mutilated and killed, Black men are stigmatized as being unable to hold a family together. Although countless studies and court cases show that police violate the constitutional rights of Blacks, Black men are trotted out as being the majority of prisoners, as if the number alone suggests that he is more wrong than any other racial group. Finally we get to the last stereotype, that Black men cannot be fathers.

I have already shown you that Black men are fathers, take care of their children, and support and spend time with their children more than any other race. Now, I show you proof that the numbers cannot be true that Black men are dead beats they are said to be, coming from the other side, single Black men.

You cannot have a stereotype of the Black man being a dead beat if I’ve shown you a majority of them are fathers, heads of households. To make sure you understand it, I come from the other side: what percent of Black men have no children.

The answer staggered even me.

In a previous article I told you a majority of Black men are heads of households, supporting their children. At 52%, it destroys all these people trying to stereotype Black men as being deadbeat dads, that leave their children alone and not support them.

Now I present you with the other side, Black men without children.

I mailed the government census office to ask the question, directly. Here is the response:

Hi,

Although we do not have this estimate in published tables, our subject-matter expert ran a quick tab in Data Ferrett.  It is for Black alone men age 15 and over, in answer to the question about how many biological children they have ever fathered. Of the 12.95 million Black alone men in 2009, 5.5 million, or 42 percent, have not fathered a child. Of course, this includes many young men who will eventually father a child. The data set does not show Black alone or in combination as a racial category.

Robert Bernstein
Public Information Office
U.S. Census Bureau
(301) 763-2603

That’s right folks. 42% of Black men have not fathered children.

Let’s do some math here.

52% of Black men father children and take care of them in marriage or as single fathers
42% of Black men have no children
that means 92% of Black men are either good fathers or have no children
that leaves only 8% of Black men as fitting this stereotype as deadbeat fathers

Anyone understands that 8% does not make a stereotype. It would be atypical of a Black man then to be estranged to his own children. So where is this stereotype coming from?

The answer is obvious. The Black man is being attacked. By attacking the Black man, the Black family will be destroyed.

All of those government sponsored social programs that the Democrats love to trot out: welfare; WIC; food stamps; medicaid. They all have one thing in common, “you must take the man out of the picture.” You cannot get their assistance if you have a man in the picture. The woman is literally forced to break all relations with her husband, fiance, boyfriend if she is on those programs.

It is just another attack on the Black family.

A young Black woman that might have a child before marriage, by this system, destroys herself, the child’s future and any hope of a family.

Now the Black man is under attack, at the same time.

I heard a sheriff say one time, “if I could, I would round up every negro and get them off the street.”

We are under attack and no one wants to admit it.

Who is putting out stereotypes that Black men make horrible fathers, are deadbeats and unfit to be married? Black women did not originate this.

In fact, if you ever hear that, please ask the person where they got that from.

My numbers do not lie.

  • Black men make excellent husbands
  • Black men take care of their families
  • Black men care for their children
  • Single Black men do not go around having children
  • Single Black men concentrate on their careers, education and building wealth
You do know that there are more Black men in college, than there are in prison. You don’t hear that often enough.

Most Black Men are Married

Most Black Men are Married

Turn on the TV and Black men seem to be in jail, arrested, doing drugs or a womanizing rapper with all of the above going on. The problem is that people do not understand what they are watching. TV executives only put on TV what they think will get attention.

Stupid white people, with missing teeth, will get your attention. Asian kids that dance like Black cheerleaders will get your attention. Middle-aged Jewish businessmen that rap better than Eminem will get your attention. But, this is the problem no one thinks all Jewish people are rappers. No one thinks all asians are dancers. No one thinks all white people are stupid with teeth missing. But, people think ALL BLACK PEOPLE ARE VIOLENT CRIMINALS. People think all Black men are dogs. People think all Black men leave their newborn children in the wind.

It has gotten so bad, that, Black people think Black people are violent criminals, dead beat dads and womanizers.

It has grown hard to separate fact from fiction.

The internet makes matters worse. Because everyone can sit at their computer, download a program and start typing, the myth about how bad Black men are, can now grow exponentially. Sisters are now getting in on the game.

If a Black woman starts a blog talking about how great her marriage is, her blog will fail, and no one will read it. If a Black woman starts a blog talking about how her man dogged her, left her pregnant, won’t return her calls and won’t marry her, she will be the belle of the ball. None of these sisters mention that they slept around, did drugs while pregnant and ran her Black man away, and uses the court system to keep the child away from him, just to get back at him.

You will see stories about Black men being afraid of commitment, i.e. not wanting to get married, or worse, the dreaded interracial marriage.

You can open up any search engine and find pages and pages of entries talking about how Black men are marrying white women. The truth is only 8% of Black men marry white women. That’s a far cry from what sisters try to portray. That means less than 1 in 10 Black men marry white women.

Now let’s look at some real numbers.

An overwhelming majority of Black men are married: 52%. This means most of the blogs talking about Black men being afraid of commitment is just that one sister’s experience. Maybe, just maybe, she needs to stop going to lower class businesses.

Most men do not speak out, about anything. But, now that videos and blogs have become so popular, brothers have taken to the internet. Nearly all videos and blogs I read, presented by men say one thing: sisters need to stop acting like hood rats, get rid of the fake hair weaves and stop being hypersexual.

Now that is shocking. You would think Black men would want easy pickings right? But, nope. In my readings I come across it time and time again. Black men do not want and easy woman. It reflects badly on the sister and badly on him.

The myth that Black men do not take care of their children is also out there. The truth is that there are quite a few Black men who are single fathers. You never hear about it. There are, as said above, and overwhelming majority of Black men that are married. You never hear about that either. A recent study showed that Black men spend more time with their estranged children and give them money, more than any other race. You never hear this at all.

The reality is that the Black man is painted to be this boogie man. It’s white slavery tactics all over again. Degrade the Black man so far, to the point that no one trusts him to even be human. Get the Black woman so confused that she attacks the Black man.

There are plenty of stories of Black women sabotaging their own relationships.

Listen!

If you are a Black woman and you are having bad luck with your Black brothers, take a long hard look in the mirror. Ask yourself, “am I sabotaging my relationships?” Ask yourself, “am I the victim of brainwashing?”

As a Black woman, you are the prime target to convince to mistrust your Black man. This is a game and it is for keeps.

You might also be wondering about the Black men that aren’t married. It’s simple. 3% of Black men are enthralled with the homosexual fetish. About 25% are single, never been married, never had kids. About 5% are in jail, or on probation. That leaves about 10% that are free, single with children they are not in the home with. As to their real story, there has never been any research done on them. Oh, there are generalities, but no one has, nor probably ever will do any research on them. Why? Because they are afraid they might find that those Black men may start off estranged from their kids but end up marrying the woman or support the kids under the table or something else that would shatter their boogie man image of the Black man.

Conclusion

Most Black men are

  • married
  • educated
  • middle-class
  • support their families
  • religious
  • keep it in their pants [ only 1.2 population growth of all Black people. that means that Black people are barely maintaining their population. ]
Sorry to tell you this. But, Black men are just as normal and boring as white men. We have our problems, but nowhere near what the main stream media puts out.
Black men are NOT rappers, walking around with their pants down by their ankles, showing off their butt, with not money, broke, jobless and womanizers.
I know a lot of you got mind wiped, and brainwashed. Stop it.

Black Genocide in America: Attacking the Black Father

Black Genocide in America: Attacking the Black Father

Open any newspaper, log onto your favorite Black woman rant blog, or watch any movie that talks about Black men and you’ll always hear: Black men leave their children in the dust and don’t take care of them. I am here to tell you it’s all a BIG FAT LIE. It is a systemic attack on the Black man.

So many people see statements like this, and think they are true and start to repeat the lie over and over. Before you start repeating all of these lies, stop and think for a second: who is saying this; what is their qualification for saying this; how do they know this? Most of TV is material they need to put on there to take up time, so they can make money from the commercials in between. That material is called content. This “content” doesn’t mean they have to back up their claims. They can simply say anything they want, so long as the commercials keep rolling.

You have done no research at all. In fact, you’re just propagating the attacks on the Black family and the all out genocide of Black men.

Let me give you some real facts: 58% of Black women are or have been married [this includes divorced and widowed]; 65% of Black men are or have been married [this includes divorced and widowed]. Now only 4.8% of Black men are in jail, period [US Bureau of Justice statistics] So they are not impacting the total Black mail population. So only 35% of Black men have never been married.

A very glaring database is left out: Black men without children. Let me venture a guess on this.

Different researchers have said that between 3%-9% of the population is homosexual. In my estimation a large percentage of that is female. [sadly] Of that percent I would guess  3% represent men. [with no children]

1,909,000 Black men hold a 4 year college degree or better: 1,341,000 4 year degree; 409,000 masters degree; 88,000 professional degree [doctor / lawyer etc] I am willing to bet that a high percentage of these men have no children, especially the 500,000 that have higher than 4 yr degrees. The Black population is now at 41.8 million [2010 census] half of which are men, so about 21 million [data suggests that slightly more men than women are born] so a cool 10% probably have no children.

That brings the grand total to 13% of Black men with no children. So of the Black men left that leaves 35% – 13% = 22% of Black men who have children and are unmarried.

Finally, the last nail in the coffin for these silly rants people have been making against Black men, is that Pew Research showed that Black men spend more quality time with their children than any other racial group. These are the unmarried fathers.

These attacks on Black men are coming from both the outside and within the Black race. They are unwarranted, often misguided and always not backed up with any data. People see someone say something negative on tv about Black men or Black children and assume it’s true.

No, we are not at 1950 levels of 70% marriage rate among Blacks, but we are nowhere near the 72% of Black children born without fathers lies that are constantly being spread.

What’s Going On? What’s Happening Brother (extended video)

Marvin Gaye – What’s Going On?

The Black man in America today is the most victimized of everyone today.  Because we as a community do not stand up for each other nor pool our resources, we are just lambs fit for slaughter.  What does that mean?  That means we Black people don’t beat a path to a Black man’s door who opens up a store, and therefore Black owned businesses have a MUCH higher failure rate than all other races.  That means we have no political power and the police and government does with Black men as they please.  Let’s talk about likelihood – Black men are more likely to be thrown in jail for minor offenses and petty regulations made by a city or state; Black men are more likely to have to drop out of school due to lack of funding for education; Black men are more likely to not be hired for jobs they are qualified for; dark Black men suffer twice as much social injustice at the hands of not only whites, but other Blacks as well.  The father of social consciousness, Marvin Gaye, spoke about this 40 years ago.  While Martin Luther King preached about civil rights, he never touched on the whole picture.  We ascribe to Martin Luther King everything, when the reality is, he was as much of a pawn of the system as Obama is today.  Marvin Gaye on the other hand, was able to say exactly what he felt.  I present to you his song “What’s Going On” and “What’s Happening Brother”.

Marvin Gaye – “What’s Going On”

What’s Going On is the eleventh studio album by soul musician Marvin Gaye, released May 21, 1971, on the Motown-subsidiary label Tamla Records.  Recording sessions for the album took place in June 1970 and March–May 1971 at Hitsville U.S.A., Golden World and United Sound Studios in Detroit, Michigan and at The Sound Factory in West Hollywood, California.

The first Marvin Gaye album credited as produced solely by the artist himself, What’s Going On is a unified concept album consisting of nine songs, most of which lead into the next. It has also been categorized as a song cycle, since the album ends on a reprise to the album’s opening theme. The album is told from the point of view of a Vietnam War veteran returning to the country he had been fighting for, and seeing nothing but injustice, suffering and hatred.

What’s Going On was the first album on which Motown Records’ main studio band, the group of session musicians known as the Funk Brothers, received an official credit. Featuring introspective lyrics about drug abuse, poverty and the Vietnam War, the album was also the first to reflect the beginning of a new socially conscious trend in soul music. What’s Going On was both an immediate commercial and critical success and has endured as a classic of early-1970s soul. A deluxe edition set of the album was released on February 27, 2001, and featured a rare live concert shot at Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center where the singer was given the key to the city.

In worldwide critics’, artists’ and public surveys, it has been voted one of the landmark recordings in pop music history and is considered to be one of the greatest albums ever made.  In 2003, the album was ranked number 6 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

In late March 1970, Marvin Gaye had fallen into a deep depression following the death of his singing partner and fellow Motown artist Tammi Terrell, who had died of a brain tumor earlier that month. Gaye refused to record or perform, going as far as to attempt an athletic career in football with the Detroit Lions of the NFL. After an unsuccessful tryout for the team, Gaye came in contact with musician Al Cleveland and the Four Tops’ Renaldo “Obie” Benson, who were working on a politically conscious song called “What’s Going On”. Gaye assisted Cleveland and Benson in completing the composition, and planned to produce the song as a recording for the Motown act The Originals. However, Cleveland and Benson persuaded Gaye to record the song himself.

In June 1970, Gaye recorded “What’s Going On” and his own composition, “God Is Love”, which further expanded his inclusion of his spirituality in his music. Recording such material was a different direction for Gaye, who had previously performed and recorded radio-formatted and contemporary songs that were more representative of the Gordy-produced Motown Sound rather than politically or socially conscious music. When Gaye delivered the songs as the sides for his next 45-rpm single, his brother-in-law, Motown Records CEO Berry Gordy, Jr., objected to the material and refused to release the recordings. Though he had already permitted other Motown artists to record and release material that hinted at social and political themes – Edwin Starr’s “War”, The Temptations’ “Ball of Confusion”, both released earlier in 1970, and Stevie Wonder’s “Heaven Help Us All”, released later in the year – Gordy considered “What’s Going On” far too political to be promoted on radio and too unusual compared with the popular music sound of that time to be commercially successful.  Gaye, however, stood his ground and continued to lobby his case to label executives and to Gordy, as he did not want to be bound by Gordy’s or Motown’s version of music.

In an interview for Rolling Stone magazine, Marvin Gaye discussed what had shaped his view on more socially conscious themes in music and the conception of his eleventh full-length, non-duets studio album:

    In 1969 or 1970, I began to re-evaluate my whole concept of what I wanted my music to say… I was very much affected by letters my brother was sending me from Vietnam, as well as the social situation here at home. I realized that I had to put my own fantasies behind me if I wanted to write songs that would reach the souls of people. I wanted them to take a look at what was happening in the world. — Marvin Gaye

Gordy eventually gave in, certain that the record would flop. Upon its release in January 1971, “What’s Going On” became Motown’s fastest selling single at that point, going to the number-one spot on the R&B charts for five weeks and number-two for three weeks on the Pop listings, with “Joy to the World” by Three Dog Night retaining the top spot.

In 1985, writers on British music weekly the NME voted it best album of all time.  In 2004, the album’s title track was ranked number 4 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 greatest songs of all time.  A 1999 critics poll conducted by British newspaper Guardian/Observer named it the “Greatest Album of the 20th Century“. In 1997, What’s Going On was named the 17th greatest album of all time in a Music of the Millennium poll conducted in the United Kingdom by HMV Group, Channel 4, The Guardian and Classic FM. In 1998 Q magazine readers placed it at number 97, while in 2001 the TV network VH1 placed it at number 4. In 2003, it was one of 50 recordings chosen that year by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry. What’s Going On was ranked #6 on Rolling Stone magazine’s 2003 list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, one of three Gaye albums to be included, preceded by 1973’s Let’s Get It On (#165) and 1978’s Here My Dear (#462).  The album is Gaye’s highest-ranking entry on the list, as well as several other publications’ lists.
