Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) recognized and acknowledged by the American Psychological Association is a mental health condition that's triggered by a terrifying event-either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event. It is also a condition that helps explains the etiology of many of the adaptive survival behaviors in African American communities throughout the United States. It is a condition that exists as a consequence of multigenerational oppression of Africans and their descendants resulting from centuries of chattel slavery, segregation, police enforcement, aggression, brutality and racial profiling with an underlying belief and premise that African Americans were and remain violent, threatening, and inherently/genetically inferior to whites, the identity development of children in America afflicted with police aggression often results in the existence of multigenerational trauma together with continued oppression, an absence of opportunity to heal or access the benefits available in the society for hope, healing and health and the presence of damage self-esteem and identity development.
