In an earlier resume posted by the Reedy River Baptist Association Inc. (see below), Dr. Millere states that he has a Doctorate Of Divinity-Clinical Pastoral Education from American National University of Religious Arts (November 2002). It is possible that things have changed but as of 2014 ANU does not offer a Ph.D. in Divinity. Currently ANU only offers the following advanced degrees; MBA, MBA in IT and an MS in Organizational Management. (see below).
More important is that according to the ANU website (see below) they are accredited by the "Higher Learning Commission". According to the United States Department of Education, ANU does not meet accreditation standards (see below) and is not an accredited school. Cautiously, I will add that a school called National American University does have several accredited programs according to the DOE (not a Ph.D. program). Maybe the doctor made a mistake on what school he attended. I have no clue.
From the RRBAI resume Dr. Millere states that he received a Master's of Theology-Philosophy from Concordia University (December 1995). Concordia does award a Master's of Theology online (see link below). So why the confusion with all of the personal web pages on LinkedIn and elsewhere? It's just baffling.
Again with the one exception (Reedy River), Dr. Millere does not indicate from which institution he was awarded any of these degrees or certificates. Obviously, Dr. Millere has been a busy man to have completed all of this.
One interesting thing to note is the difference in experience and political leanings that Dr. Millere's resume with the Reedy River Baptist Association shows with his current pontifications. In that 2002 document (see rrbai link above) the doctor was seeking a "Pastorate Position using my skills as Executive Administration." his resume with RRBAI is devoid of the hate and bigotry shown in his more recent postings not to mention that RRBAI is a Baptist organization and at some point Dr. Millere apparently became a Muslim as we will see later.
I would love to learn what turned Dr. Millere away from his more tempered attitude after he gained a Ph.D.. Trust me I know that things in life can drastically change and that it is easy to become angry and hostile. I get it. I went through it from August '08 until November '10 when I lost a job that I dearly loved because of political reasons and then was asked for a divorce on Christmas Day. In truth it lasted much longer than November '10 and the fact that others decisions have harmed or continue to hamper you (yes, meaning me in this case) both professionally and personally sucks. But at some point you have to move on and get healthy. Still, this post isn't about me so I guess all I can say is that I was lucky to have found Laura and trust me, I know that.
Not everyone is as fortunate and clearly Dr. Millere seems to have some great anger and hostility for some unknown reason. Well, that or he could have just been misleading in his 2002 RRBAI resume, I won't speculate. Maybe the truth is simpler and that Dr. Millere's metamorphosis into what appears to be an angry, hostile and bitter man, at least publically, is more based on the desire to protect the color "green" more so then it is anything else. Who knows.
In a strange twist, the 1425 Grandville address list Bibi Makeda Fatou Naeem as a contact person for Dr. Millere. She is also listed on the Counseling Services Inc. (see below), website as being a retired social worker with a BA from the Ohio State University, Masters in Social Work from Ohio Dominican and a dual associates degree in banking and finance. Good credientals.
Yet, it gets unclear as a LinkedIn profile then shows up for a Makeda Fatou Naeem in Columbus (OH) as the owner of the Harambee Leadership Academy Inc. (see below). This Makeda Fatou Naeem list a BA from Ohio Dominican along with a Master of Social Work from the Ohio State University and a dual associates degree from Columbus State Community College. The confusion of degrees raises the question of which, if either, of the profiles are correct. It's hard to believe that someone with an MS would not properly put the school they went to on a company profile or LinkedIn but I guess mistakes can happen.
The Harambee Leadership Academy webpage (see below) does list an address of 1425 Grandville when the "contact us" link is clicked on. According to the site the Academy has moved to 1570 Cleveland Ave as of July 1st. Fundraising is also a part of the Harambee Leadership Academy as they have a GoFundMe page (see below). It is important to mention that the Harambee Leadership Academy appears to have no connection to Dr. Millere on the internet. He does not appear as a staff member at the Harambee Academy nor does he appear on the Harambee Facebook Page.
Back to Dr. Millere. As communicated above while Dr. Millere communicates he has a doctorate degree, masters degree and a bachelors degree along with many certificates he does not list when or where they were awarded clearly with the exception of the resume on the RRBAI site. His name and address does show up on several resources to verify that he is doing or trying to do business as a psychotherapist.
But . . . then again the doctor did "create" a mental illness to explain this "black vengeance" and he is taking donations for research or food and clothing or rent or bail or medical stuff or . . . . just pass the damn plate around. You know the "leader" has needs!
Surprisingly, although Dr. Millere has two addresses listed in Columbus and has several web pages that reference those address (along with the consistent request for donations), the telephone number he uses is a Washington D.C. based number and "Referral Key" (see below) gives his location as: Horn Lake, MS 38637 United States. The doctors last update on Referral Key was in November 2013 so it is possible that he has moved. But the Angie's List for Columbus indicates he has been doing business as early as 2004 with the inference that such business is in Columbus.
I imagine it is possible that the doctors practice is so large that it takes him to several states. If that is the case one would think that he could hire an IT professional to not only manage but clean up some of the profiles and defunct websites.
On the "interest" page for Dr. Millere (see below) from the company Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Miller Councling Services Inc. / Psychotherapy he cites a connection to Arkansas State Hospital as a Mental Health Worker III (dates unknown).
Dr. Millere's further citations are:
"National Baptist Conventional, USA, Inc., Department Of Christian Education Accreditation & Credentials; Sunday School Publishing Board-Pastor's Alternative For Teaching Certification, 2007-present."
"Ole Miss State University-Urban Research Certificate Of Completion, 2007-present."

"Certificate Of Ordination (Theological Counseling/Ministry), 1994-present."
"License to Minister (Novice-Vocational & Applied/Theological Training)/Ministry, 1990-present."
Although on the business page Dr. Millere includes a "resume" (see below) it is unlike any resume I have ever seen. There is no mention of a specific college or university. There is no past work history. Dr. Millere does not list any specific associations, awards or published papers. But he does mention that he has been, "Teaching counseling education classes @ university and colleges." (the @ symbol is his).
Dr. Millere also has an "accomplishment" tab on his businesses page. Although he states he has a BA, MS and Ph.D. on his business page he list his accomplishments as:
*Counseling Services Incorporated-Clinical/Behavioral Counselor DD-BMH, CPC-CC; private practice-present.
*Department Of Health - Jefferson County Health Department; Center For Disease Control (Public Health Investigator/Disease Intervention Specialist), Clinical/Behavioral Counselor, private practice, 2007-present.

*Fort Hays State University-advance logic, philosophy-training for course/training for credits,1997-1998.
*Kansas State University-advance psychology/sociological-training for course/training and credit, 1995-1997.
Not a single statement of where a degree, any degree was awarded. Not single citation of a published paper. Not a single citation of where and when any credentials were awarded and by whom. I imagine it could be an oversight but as the Doctor has so many web pages dedicated to himself it does not seem that humility is his strong suit so not including that information on your business page seems disconnected at best and deceptive at worse.
Seriously. The doctor shows "humility" on his own business page but produced an hour long video documentary about his trip to Little Rock (AR) to protest the Matthew Rougley Case (see below).
But Dr. Millere is more than just a psychotherapist and is doing more than work on dementia and his own diagnosis of MAPD. On his blog, "Civil Rights 2010 and Beyond" he is listed as the CEO and is seeking donations for something called, "Campaign for Better Health".
The blurred lines of legitimate / illegitimate seem to be running all across the many web pages, profiles, services offered and donations requested that Dr. Millere has floating out in space.
I wondered just how "legitimate" the doctor was and began to wonder if I could check any of the four universities where he alleges he attended college. Realizing that those institutions would most likely not give me any information I found after looking through the many webpages that Dr. Millere included a hyperlink for Dr. Scott Henggler Ph.D. at the Medical University of South Carolina. (see below). After sending an email to Dr. Henggler asking if he could vouch for the credentials of Dr. Millere he replied by email with;
Another blurred line.
Finally, Dr. Millere does have a Corporation filing in the State of Ohio. His business is listed as:
|Agent / Registrant Information|
|DR MAURICELM-LEI MILLERE SR|
1587 GREENVILLE RD
Effective Date: 10/03/2011
Contact Status: Active
|DR MAURICELM-LEI MILLERE SR|
The most interesting thing from the above filing is that the business is listed as a for profit limited liability company while Dr. Millere is consistently seeking donations. Well and the fact that the business address is different from the two that appear elsewhere on the internet.
So there is a brief overview of Dr. Millere's educational, professional and some of his fund raising works. But remember he is a political activist which is how I learned about him. The question for me is: were the statements he made about beating someone down out of the norm for him?
Dr. Millere uses a handgun as a profile picture for the AADL (see above) and warns in a post on 11 September that:
Just like the GoFundMePage, the Civil Rights 2010 and Beyond Blog, the website asking for donations for "research" it seems one of the goals of the AADL Facebook page is to ask for donations from the community. But, Dr. Millere, considering his stories of the touring around Europe and Africa, being in two different Military Branches and attending at least four colleges and on so, is a busy guy. He needs support for the "cause" and of course the AADL page isn't his only political iron in the fire or Facebook.
One post from February 17, 2014 reads: "You get angry and stray away from the path because I say we must kill whitey! Michael Dunn shot one our young, black, angels for no reason at all. Revolutionaries! We are being called out! Zimmerman must die and so must Michael Dunn! Who has ever heard of nonviolent revolutions or revolutionaries? Damn this! The day of violence has come! Zimmerman and Dunn must be shot in the head! When you are killing a devil, werewolf, or demon you must destroy the head! Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere , Bridgette Anderson, Black National Rifle Association (BNRA) - February 02, 2014."
“The black race should hunt George Zimmerman down to kill him! He is a dog and he should be hunted down like a dog. A dog that should be caged and shot like a rabid dog. We got to find Georgie and beat him to death! Now a lot of people will tell you that I am preaching hate. I am not preaching hate! This is love talk! If I didn’t love you I wouldn’t tell you. George Zimmerman did not love Trayvon Martin. So I want you to love Zimmereman with the love that he gave to Trayvon. Love Zimmerman with your guns, knives, razors, molotov coctails and such. You should love Zimmerman to death.” Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere (spelling errors his).
Ironically the site (above) list the name and tax id number as; Liberation Temple X / Black Nationalist Network (OFAAU) 501(c)3 organization. Our Tax ID Number is 45-3589577.
After searching on the IRS website for a good while (say about 45 minutes), I could not find the organization as a 501(c)3. Still, to be fair that does not mean the group isn't a tax exempt organization it just means that when I put the Tax ID and organizational name into the IRS system I couldn't find it. I also could not find the organizations IRS 990 online.
Dr. Millere also has a profile on the Hambree radio and television network. I don't know if this is the same organization mentioned earlier in Columbus (OH) and to be fair I had grown tired of searching.
It also seems that he is a big poster to the Facebook group, AAfrikka Pride (see below). Guess what Dr. Millere post to this group? Yep, request for donations!
"Help Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere to help Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri
https://sites.google.com/site/ministermauricelmx/make-donations" on Aug 13, '14. IOW, four days after Mr. Brown was killed Dr. Millere was asking for donations. Well, he is a quick and busy guy (don't forget about all the education, military experience, travel to foreign lands and so on . . . he gets a whole heap done, right?).
I do have to give it to Dr. Millere though. On most of the request for money it was normally noted that funds be given through PayPal. In the case of the Minster Mauricelm X website above they also can take "Green Dot Money Packs" along with the instructions to send all checks to; Attn: Support Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere, "Food and Shelter for the Homeless Campaign.". Direct deposit can also be done to; Navy Federal Credit Union - Routing Number: 256074974. Donations can also be mailed to; P.O. Box 3100, Merrifield, VA 22119-3100. Donation.
Amazingly, while the Mauricelm X site was shared as a means to ask for donations the "upcoming events" section of the blog list nothing since 2013.
The doctor also states on the African Studies site (see link below) that he has a "book" titled; "Manic Aggressive Personality Disorder Clinical Study and Research Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere - Clinical Psychotherapist / Clinical Chaplain" Upon clicking on the link it does not take the reader to a place to order the book but rather a long blog post by the doctor on his "theory".
On Dr. Millere's LinkedIn page he states he has been "published" but does not list the publication where his paper, "Manic Aggressive Personality Disorder Clinical Study and Research" is published. He simply list his business name with a publication date of August 2013. I spent some time doing a search of several journals and also used an education publication search (it's good to have a friend that works at a library) and could find nothing. Still the truth is that his pontifications are a theory. A theory that is NOT accepted by the APA and does NOT appear in the DSM-V. I did a quick search with Amazon and Google and could not find a single place to purchase the "book".
I guess that it is cool that Dr. Millere is seeking bail money for folks and so on. I do wonder if he is letting people know that the Ferguson City Council, "decided to abolish fines that are routinely issued if a defendant fails to show up for court, repeal a “failure to appear” law that led to many incarcerations and give people a month to come forward and void their warrants".
Still, Dr. Millere does have a point that many people were impacted as a result of the riots in Ferguson. Citizens and businesses were greatly disrupted. I am not sure how a guy from Columbus (OH) or Mississippi or Virginia or Washington D.C., or Arkansas and who is a dual citizen (more on that below) is or should be the one leading the cause but to each his own. I do wonder if the doctor understands that someday he will leave the community and all of the calls for violence will be remember long after he is gone. It makes me think that he is more about self promotion than he is about community repair.
Even after Facebook took down (or he decided to take down) his Facebook page the doctor continued to share on other sites the grand news that he had threatened someone with violence. On the AAfrikka Pride page the doctor links to a story from a blog called "Red Flag" about a story that reads,
"Mauricelm-Lei Millere is a Black Panther and New Black Panther Adviser who is assisting to organize the protests in Ferguson, Missouri. He has also recently encouraged people to commit violence on Martin Baker in a recent Facebook posting." It seems that the doctor is proud that others are talking about him. I wonder if he understands just what mental illness such behavior correlates with (give him a hint it's an Axis II diagnosis and can be found in the DSM-V).
The question I think should be asked is what will the doctor do once the attention dies down? Remember he has more than seventeen websites dedicated to himself. The doctor has at least four professional profiles on social network pages. The doctor operates at least three blogs and two blog talk radio shows. The doctor, after traveling through Africa and Europe, attending at least four colleges and receiving several degrees does not seem to be the type of person that will just fade back into the woodwork. He seems to crave attention (more on that later). If innuendo no longer works just what direct threat might the good doctor find himself needing to engage in to keep folks interested. Honestly. The man is, IMO, not just a bigot but he is a scary bigot because he has an audience.
Oh, yea . . . I almost forgot that Dr. Millere also posted to the AAfrikka Pride page a news article which quotes him as saying: "Darren Wilson is wanted Dead or Alive," he wrote. He followed that up with: "African American Defense League." The post contains a picture of Wilson claiming the officer is "armed and dangerous."
Dr. Millere also solicits donations on his Google+ account in addition to similar ignorant and baiting comments found in other places. One post reads; "God is telling the blackman to get a gun! Minister Mauricelm X". While the request for donations comes in the form of; "My name is Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere. I am a national organizer working in Ferguson, Missouri in wake of Mike Brown assassination. I am working with local leaders of Ferguson, Missouri and other national leaders. The $2.00 you donate to Go Funds will help to bail people out jail, provide food clothing, shelter, and a mission place for homeless communities helping us in this endeavor. Thank you in advance Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere, Clinical Psychotherapist, National (Organizer) - African American Defense League
Of course, Dr. Millere also posted on the Google+ page; "Darren Wilson is guilty of murdering Mike Brown and is Wanted Dead Or Alive - Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere, African American Defense League 2014". Sept 15, '14. Remember he has folks attention right now . . . the threats are there but are not being paid attention to. What will happen when he isn't getting the attention? How many different places does the doctor get to say, "wanted dead or alive" before legitimate authorities start to question his stability?
Think about it . . . the good doctor will "run you out of town" if you are black and vote for anyone that isn't black! WTH . . that, my friends is the best example of a bigot that I will ever be able to show.
But (or again, however you wish to express it) there's more! According to the doctor he, "shares a dual citizenship in Kaduna State (Hausa Tribe http://www.gateway-africa.com/tribe/hausa_tribe.html), Nigeria, http://www.kadunastate.gov.ng/, and Marianna, Arkansas, United States" (see link below).
So, I imagine if the doctor is so unsettled with America and feels so connected to the Kaduna State (as he expressed in another one of the various blogs he uses to promote himself) why not just leave and go to where he is happy? Of course, I don't know if he would be able to have the outreach there that he seems to want to have here but it does make you wonder.
To me, given the doctors threats of violence and obvious bigotry if I could I would question why he should have the ability to vote (assuming he does) as he is a dual citizen that seems very hostile to the American democracy (let's be fair, threatening to "run" black people who vote for a white candidate "out of town" just isn't the values of democracy. Intimidation in voting is not supposed to be allowed, right?).
So there it is. My new favorite bigot (yes, that is sarcastic). I am confused at how a guy with the doctors "education" can be so ignorant and bigoted. I also can't understand how he has been seemingly able to get away with writing not just vague threats but what can be best seen as instructions to others.
Dr. Millere proudly shares his connection to the Black Nationalism Network, an organization that he takes credit for starting and one that proudly advertises a photo of him on the webpage where he is referred to as "Little Malcolm X". Yet, again, the website is another cut and past of the same information recited over and over on all of the other sites. Even the photos are the same.
The bizarreness of this simply is to much for words. Think about the page Morning Star Baptist Church P.O. Box 58 Jonesborough, LA 70170. Although the site list the Pastor as Norman Amos in the "about" tab it shows Dr. Millere's email address (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org) as the contact and list Minister Mauricelm X's webpage as the churches website! Not suprising is that the church also request donations and even offers that people can give via MoneyPacks and list Minster Mauricelm X's donation page as the e-donate contact page for those that wish not to send money to the P.O. Box!
In reality the Morning Star Baptist Church Facebook Page has Dr. Millere's photo as a profile picture and three of the five photos are ones that he has on every other Facebook page he is associated with. Many of the post are direct copies of what Dr. Millere post on other pages and several of them even end with his signature; Dr. Maurcielm-Lei Millere.
Think about it. Morning Star Baptist Church (MSBC) list an address (P.O. Box) in Jonesboro. A simple Google search shows a reference to a MSBC in Saline (LA) along with a MSBC in Jonesboro. Remember the Facebook Group for Morning Star Baptist Church (see below) with Dr. Millere as a contact is said to be in Jonesboro but the web address is (in part) msbcsaline (see below). Maybe the two listings are for the same church, right.
Well, it would seem that way because they list the same phone number. So why the P.O. Box in Jonesboro? Why would a church spend the money on a P.O. Box for a place 20.5 driving miles away? Saline is a small town according to city-data and so maybe they don't have a post office. I have no clue.
Except and there always seems to be an "except" with Dr. Millere. There is a profile for the MSBC in Saline that gives the address, phone and so on. However the "find places" profile for the MSBC in Jonesboro list the website as being, the Minister Malcolm X "Google" Donations Page although they do list the same church telephone number (see above and below).
See how this all seems so clouded and fishy. It makes me think the real scoundrel here isn't the so-called "white devil" that Dr. Millere rants against. The irony here is that Dr. Millere makes himself out to be a man of the cloth. A man who would fight the devil but in my view the devil is in the details and the details tell a different story.
But if all of that isn't enough to cause folks to scratch their heads think about this. Dr. Millere is the contact for the Morning Star Baptist Church but according to his Facebook Page, Mauricelm X he would appear to be Muslim and not Baptist. From the Mauricelm X about tab: "Mauricelm X is the Muslim affirmation of Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere. Seen as very much "Like Malcolm X", Mauricelm X focus on seperation & self-defense." So is the doctor a Christian minster or is he a follower of Islam?
Oh and yes, the doctor promotes himself on the Mauricelm X page and ask for donations also. Like the other Facebook groups everything is interconnected and shared (photos, email addresses, webpages and so on).
Still . . . wait, there's more! Remember the page that Dr. Millere post to and that shares his information called AArikka Pride? Well, that page is a member of a Facebook Group (see below) with a very odd name: "Jonesboro, Louisiana is a Racist and Unjust Place to Live!" WOW . . the place where the follower of Islam, donations contact person for the MSBC, Dr. Millere has a P.O. Box to accept donations for a, can I say this clear enough, Baptist Church is in a town that others call "racist and unjust". Amazing.
Dr. Millere has the same set-up with the Facebook Page for Rev. Pastor Samuel Rogers who he states on the page is his Grandfather. Remember, Dr. Millere said it was against his Grandfathers advice that he went into the Military as his Grandfather called the military a place of institutional racism (according to Dr. Millere). Is this the same Grandfather? Who knows. Still the Rev. Pastor Samuel Rogers page shares many of the same post as all the other pages, links to Dr. Millere's pages and ask visitors to go and donate to Dr. Millere. It's an interesting web to be fair.
On many of the pages Dr. Millere shares a photo of himself that demands other "join".
But what is he asking people to join, exactly? Join in supporting him in one of several websites? Join in agreeing to hateful, demagogic speech?
Join in promoting Dr. Millere? Just what does he want people to join, honestly? Just consider the number of self promoting things that are cataloged above and ask if this seems like the work of a humble servant? Then think about the fact that there are currently 50 videos of Dr. Millere posted on IfweBantu Social Network by someone named Brother X.
If you spend anytime reading my blog it should be clear that I have a diverse history to say the least. I am all about equality and civil rights. But I sort-of get a creepy feeling when it seems all about self promotion.
It makes me wonder why the media, DOJ and local law enforcement are not giving Dr. Millere the attention he so gravely desires. Why else issue publish threats? Why else try and incite violence? Why else publish so many websites dedicated to, well yourself, if you didn't want the attention. Seriously. I for one, hope that the good doctor finally gets the attention and recognition he is searching for. Honestly, I do. I think he needs help and is crying out for it.
Of course that is only my opinion and I am sure the "doctor" would say that because I am a "white devil" that my opinions have no bearing on him. It would be correct to say that my opinions have no barring on him. However doe his opinions have a barring on others? He has said he is a civil rights leader, political activist, research psychotherapist, founder of a new psychiatric / psychological diagnosis, near martyr (what else would you call several assassination attempts), radio host, writer, educator and a man of scripture and divinity.
So when Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere aka Minister Mauricelm X aka Brother Minister Mauricelm on 14 September wrote on Facebook; "Wilson is “wanted Dead or Alive!” then followed that up on 15 September with; “When you find Darren Wilson you know what to do! Whoever finds him knows what must be done! Take everything that he took from Mike Brown.” All after publishing a poster that reads:
Just what are / were his intentions, honestly. To me it is clear but let's walk through it.
The good doctor publishes a poster that just so happens to (1) have an address believed to be the home of Officer Wilson (see twitter page "Darren Wilson" below). (2) The poster directly incites action and attention to a specific location and informs interested parties that the suspect is "armed and dangerous". (3) The doctor has posted on at least two public social network sites (Facebook, Google+) that Officer Wilson is "wanted dead or alive" (she his "tweet" below. Also notice that the doctor linked to an article about his threat from the ADL below the threat and states that ADL considers him "influential and a serious threat". Funny thing is that isn't really what the article relates but he does get the attention he so greatly desires).
Here is the thing, the doctor has a long history of advocating violence (see his blogtalk radio postings above) and using caustic language (see the one hour documentary cited above). The doctor engages in this behavior even though he states that he is the founder of a mental health diagnosis (Manic Aggression Personality Disorder (MAPD)) which, according to him, "causes blacks to, spontaneously, inflict violence on an oppressor or suspected threat." (see full definition at bottom taken from his LinkedIn page).
In essence the doctor is inciting people to violence when according to him the group he is most speaking to, has a predisposition to violence because they suffer from a mental illness. IOW, the doctor encourages people with a propensity for violence to actually engage in that violence. The problem is, I bet he would argue (as he does in some of his websites) that this violence is not the responsibility of the person who committed it because they have a diminished ability to control the anger and rage they have due to the mental illness (MAPD). Just what is it that the "doctor" is wanting?
In my opinion, Dr. Millere is a fraud. He is not a true believer in the garbage he is selling. If he were a true believer he would not incite others but would do the things necessary to effectuate the change he says is needed. He would be the revolutionary and not demand others stand in front of him and sacrifice themselves. When will it be time for him as a "revolutionary" to actually follow his own advice and begin beating, looting and arresting people? He says these are the right things to do but he does not engage in them, why?
Oh, I know . . because he is a "leader" for the cause. A leader that publishes his vitriol, not just on his personal Facebook Page but on the pages of, Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere (public figure; 195 page likes), Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere (public figure (w/o a profile picture; 111 page likes). Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere (Community; 59 page likes), Jena, Louisiana and Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere (Public Figure; 123 page likes), AAfrican Pride (3,848 page likes), Black Coffee Party (Political Group; 361 page likes), Black Coffee Party (closed group; 74 members), and the African American Defense League (Political Organization, 149 page likes). The doctor encourages thousands of others but does NOTHING himself. He does not take action. But he damn sure does ask for donations every chance he gets - I guess we are back to that "hoodwinked, bamboozled" thing, right.
One word of note on Dr. Millere's pontification that he has created a mental health diagnosis. I am not a doctor nor do I pretend to be one, even on television. I do not have an advanced degree in psychology nor do I pretend that I do. What I do have is an ability to ask questions and the ability to read and understand. According to Dr. Millere's LinkedIn page he describes his "discovered" diagnosis as:
"Manic Aggression Personality Disorder - is a mental illness merely affecting Africans, Africans born in America,or the Pan-African Community. [Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere] is credited as founder of illness or disorder. Millere attributes the violence within the African American community to the enslavement of the black race. He states, "This psycho-socio illusion, or personality disorder (or M.A.P.D.), is an isolated illness pertaining to the African race entirely - mimics [bipolar] and [schizophrenic] personality . Whether he is in America, Africa, the Diaspora, or abroad he suffers psychologically and socially from the evils of this [[neurotic]] syndrome for two reasons. Primarily, he suffers because the European (white) racist delusion of slavery encountered him as an animal. The term used is chattel (human cattle). Secondly, the culprit race, responsible for his inquisition refuse to take responsibility for the system of slavery and its damages, which is [[psychological]] or [[sociological]] in nature, they caused. M.A.P.D. : an illness isolated, particularly, to Africans, "Africans born in America", or black communities, experiencing mental, behavioral, or social illness due to slavery and/or post-traumatic slave experiences. "MAP" causes blacks to, spontaneously, inflict violence on an oppressor or suspected threat. "MAP" can be witnessed in black communities, especially in America, but is becoming common against "whites" and "so-called white Jews.
Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere is credited founder & treatment of Manic Aggressive Behavior."
The problem's with what is written above are:
(1) Just "who" has credited Dr. Millere as the "founder of illness or disorder"? The disorder is not accepted by the APA and does not appear in the DSM-V. Who has given him "credit"?
(2) Bipolar and Schizophrenia are not personality disorders as defined by the DSM-V but are Axis I disorders. Personality disorders are Axis II diagnosis.
(3) MAPD appears to be defined by the "founder" as a Personality Disorder. Dr. Millere makes the assertion that this disorder is caused because of the historical issues of slavery and racism (yes, I understand that slavery ended in 1865 and that the majority of Americans currently alive (including myself and Dr. Millere), were born after the abolishing of Jim Crowe laws and that passage of the Civil Rights Act but the man has a theory he needs to sell - seriously, you have seen the request for donations and GoFundMe Page, right!).
The doctor seems to forget that according to the Mayo Clinic (an organization that has been credited in various publications) the co-factors for a personality disorder are; Family history of personality disorders or other mental illness. Low level of education and lower social and economic status. Verbal, physical or sexual abuse during childhood. Neglect or an unstable or chaotic family life during childhood. Being diagnosed with childhood conduct disorder. Variations in brain chemistry and structure.
Oh that's right . . . ALL of those things must have been caused by racism. OK. Right.
(4) The condition (MAPD) is in part caused due to the perpetrating race, "Whitey" (as Dr. Millere calls "white people" on his Facebook Postings), does not take responsibility for his / her actions (slavery of the black community) and has not change the sociological damage inflicted by slavery.
Let's be clear about what Dr. Millere means by "sociological damage". He must mean organizations, institutions and the development of a group or society as those are the underpinning of sociological study. So what can we change that can make a group more able to attain greater development? Ah . . yes. . . reparations which is money (see the first youtube video on Dr. Millere's opine on the legitimacy of requesting reparations). Money, that "green" that the doctor ask for on every Facebook Page, GoFundMe page and website that I can find his name on.
The real point here is that no mental illness I can find in the DSM states that one of the reasons such illness exist is because another individual or group fails to take responsibility or make amends for past actions. Understand a personality disorder can clearly come from abuse or neglect but in Dr. Millere's case he states the illness is in part predicated on: "Secondly, the culprit race, responsible for his inquisition refuse to take responsibility for the system of slavery and its damages, which is [[psychological]] or [[sociological]] in nature, they caused. M.A.P.D."
According to Dr. Millere's own theory, if only "Whitey" would apologize and then do something to make the social status of blacks better the secondary cause for MAPD would disappear, correct? Sounds more like a shakedown than a diagnosis, doesn't it.
(5) According to Dr. Millere because of MAPD the violence in the black community is to be expected and as such understood and maybe even excused. Without being condescending what the doctor is saying is, "those poor folks don't understand what is happening, why, they have a mental illness that makes them more prone to aggression and violence." That is what the Doctor is saying. Let's be clear.
More importantly he is issuing a threat. That threat is clear - the violence that blacks are unable to stop from happening in the black community as a result of MAPD, a condition only caused because of the behavior of "whitey", will now begin to hit the white community and the (as he calls them) "so called white Jew" community.
It's a threat. He is telling anyone that will listen that the violence of the black community (which he says that community is more susceptible to) is caused because "whitey" won't take responsibility for slavery and other injustices by apologizing and making the black community whole. Because of "whitey's" inactivity the violence of the black community will begin to filter into the community of "whitey" and the "so called white Jew".
Why would Dr. Millere feel free to write threats on Facebook and share them on not only his page but on several others? Oh, because the organization he associates himself (the New Black Panther Party) has a history of doing the same thing, remember?
But like I said earlier, the doctor is all show no go. In truth I started writing about his threat to a man running for office and how that man needed to be beat down on site. Remember? Well, as of 17 September the "revolutionary" demanding "street justice" has backed off and now says;
Maybe the doctor got the attention that he wanted and realizes that he is not part of any solution that will help a community (any community) grow. I doubt that is the case but I am optimistic. What's more likely is that the doctor has gotten some advice on foreseeable liability. Either way it doesn't change the fact that I have a new favorite bigot; Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere aka Brother Mauricelm X.
