Memory Erase Techniques Used In “Men In Black” May Become a Reality

Quick note from Dr Boyce: Hello everyone, I hope you’re doing well.  I wanted to fire over a few of my most recent articles in case you missed them.  I’d also like to point out a couple of things:  First, Lamar and Ronnie Tyler, our friends at, are giving away a free 3-part video series on how to re-ignite the power in your marriage.  I love this couple because they’ve built an amazing business by promoting marriage in the black community (they have about 400,000 fans on Facebook, which is awesome for an independent black business promoting such positive imagery).  You know from The New Paradigm principles that we must restore the strength in our families in order to prosper, grow and build wealth in our commmunity.


Second, I’ve joined Cornel West, Carl Dix, Pastor Jerome McCorry and Michelle Alexander in making October a month of resistance against mass incarceration and police brutality.  You can find out more about their initiatives at  As you may also know, the prison industrial complex is the single greatest barrier to black progress in the 21st century.  Our nation cannot move forward when we are incarcerating more of our citizens than any country in the world.


Beyond that, please enjoy the articles.  Feel free to disagree. I only want us to think for ourselves without mass media telling us what to believe (yes, others work consistently to control your ideas).  I respect you, appreciate you and love you.



Dr Boyce Watkins

Why famous black people are afraid to confront BET’s harmful programming
