"how many REPUBLICANS in clayton county ran offering an alternative? " asked a Black Quasi-Socialist Progressive Fundamentalist Racism Chaser on the situation in Clayton County Georgia.
You see I challenged him on how his beloved Democratic Party, which ALREADY is in power WITHIN THE BLACK COMMUNITY, has caused material damage to Black people but suffer no harm as a party in doing so. I told him that in my observations of BQPFRCs they EXIT THE BLACK COMMUNITY as quickly as possible and seek to talk about THE NATION and how Republicans have in turn caused harm to these same Black communities......that Democrats are running. Thus they are not comfortable talking about the INSIDE OUT. (You all think that no one is watching your antics nor understand your rationale).
Thus this particular blogger came up with this tired question about how the REPUBLICANS have "failed the Black community" because THE REPUBLICANS did not compete.....against the Democrats. Does this make any damned sense to anyone?
The entire logic is painful and flawed. The way this blogger would have it - there were problems in Clayton County that served as a threat to the Black people there. As everyone knows - these problems were centrally caused by the 9 Democrats on the school board and a series of superintendents that came and went in the past 10 years of this troubled district. Despite the fact that all of these people were DEMOCRATS - instead of attacking HIS PARTY he faults the Republicans for failing to come in and "offer an alternative".
Folks - I have reported continuously about the 85/15 campaigns in various Black communities in which the community has held its collective ass out for the Republicans to kiss. Let me be clear - I AM NOT ADVOCATING FOR REPUBLICANS. Instead I am seeking to hold THOSE WHO HAVE CONTROL OF OUR COMMUNITIES ACCOUNTABLE. These are two very different arguments.
The blogger in question and so many other BQPFRCs suffer from the notion of "The Black voter as a CONSUMER rather than a SCIENTIST". A CONSUMER can only eat from the menu that is presented to him. He has NO VOICE in asking of the "menu presenter" regarding what he WANTS TO CHOOSE FROM. Thus the typical series of events in the real world where a restaurant FAILS to meet the needs of its client base eventually goes out of business because of public rebuke.......the menu called 'the ballot' used within the Black community show that THE COMMUNITY is fat and happy with its choices despite not being happy with THE RESULTS.
I coined the term "Progressive-Fundamentalist" to model this behavior. (I told you that the term BQPFRC is not a term of slander but instead an attempt to model the primary forces afflicting the popular Black political activist. By definition a "fundamentalist" is not willing to part from his core beliefs even when real world circumstances are present to challenge his world view. In the case of the Black Progressive - they HATE the alternative (conservatism) more than they hate the FAILURE that their ideology has been INTERNALLY (note I am not saying that Progressivism is flawed against the EXTERNAL threat of White Supremacy. The fact is that their fundmentalism causes them to view ALL BLACK PROBLEMS as a derivative of WHITE SUPREMACY. Thus Blacks become ultimately a FUNCTION of White folk's actions - in their political orthodoxy).
The fact is - as I have been saying for several years - the domain of the EXTERNAL FIGHT for the DEFENSE OF BLACK PEOPLE'S RIGHTS versus the INTERNAL FIGHT for the PROPER ORDERING OF BLACK PEOPLE so that our intelligence and capabilities can be leveraged require two entirely different set of management policies for success to be achieved.
Change will only come when the BLACK COMMUNITY ITSELF shifts from the consciousness of the CONSUMER - where the popular figures are able to impress upon us and exploit the biases that are entrenched within OVER TO the Black community become SCIENTISTS. We have our GOALS IN MIND and are not bound to any METHODOLOGY to achieve them. Instead the methodology which has proven in its ability to deliver upon the requirements are the one which is adopted at the time.
Thus the circular reference that is present. Those Progressives who are bound to see problems in Black America as STRUCTURAL PROBLEMS with America will always seek to do what we saw being done in Chicago right now with the schools. Despite the fact that 44% of all of the funding for Chicago schools come from external sources - the Progressives charged "CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATIONS" for the "short-changing" of funding into the city. At no time will the question of the structural problems OF CHICAGO ITSELF be inspected by these same progressives.
We must "follow the bouncing ball". When the Black progressives were on the outside of the Chicago Public School system - they attacked the system itself for "shortchanging" Black kids. They demanded more money, better schools, better teachers. Fast forward to 2008 and now the forces who are in alliance with these activists are IN POWER WITHIN THE CHICAGO PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM......they don't attack the CPS - they now have "expanded the police tape" and they are going after THE STATE OF ILLINOIS - charging a civil rights violation.
Would it come as a surprise that if the state of Illinois agrees to increasing the funding of schools in Chicago beyond the present 44% and the funding STILL does not result in school performance increases - that these same people would go after the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT - seeking to make education a National Entitlement?
Why would anyone be surprised? This is what Jesse Jackson Jr has laid out in his plan to make Education a Constitutional Right?
Now let me address the "next logical question" that many will not choose to answer - "Is educational funding the PRIMARY REASON for the racial performance gaps between Black and White?" (and thus is their entire drive a rouse?)
I believe that funding below a minimum amount to express quality education is a problem that should be addressed even if it means going to the state. What I do have a problem with is the people who seek "EQUAL FUNDING" which is the key component of their RACISM CHASE. In Chicago they went to the wealthiest, White cities in the state and inspected their school funding and thus used this as the reference point for Chicago funding. Not one ounce of financial analysis as to why this is the appropriate amount was done. "The White folks get this amount and thus we need this amount" was their motivation.
The key flaw of the Black Quasi-Socialist Progressive-Fundamentalist Racism-Chaser is that they so often fail to see the link between their current CONTROL over local governments and the policies within and how they translate into the quality of life that their people ultimately live under. Shouldn't a city be expected to field an ECONOMIC SYSTEM which allows them to sufficently pay for their basic services? ISN'T THAT WHAT CITIES WERE CREATED FOR IN THE FIRST PLACE? Why then bother to have LOCALLY ELECTED OFFICIALS when at the end of the day you eschew the concept of "federalism" and distributed government for your favored world view of centralized government?
Ultimately the marketplace of ideas is blown to hell. Instead of allowing different areas of the nation to have economic freedom and choose to deploy policies of their own choosing they seek to protect their own communities from the results of the policies that are in place and instead force the centralized governments to make up for any shortfalls. This leads to an expansive national government who's main job is income redistribution to cover for otherwise failed policies.
The Black community needs to have policies that improve our condition not policies that mask over them by having resources that were created elsewhere rained in upon us to help us.
