Excuse me sir.....DO YOU STILL LIVE IN THIS COMMUNITY or have you done a "Black Flight Progressive" move outward from "Your Peeps"? You know kinda maintained your space and entitlements....like a conservative does? A mortgage closing and a moving van and poof - your problems were solved. Your children are now safe. But WHO threatened them?
What I observed is that these boys were effectively educational, cultural, and economic outsiders who had been anti-mainstreamed since an exceedingly early date in their public school careers - in addition to having been channeled out and down in school, they also lacked the communal and educational role models [/quote]
You see folks ---- THIS is what pisses me off the most with Black Quasi-Socialist Progressive-Fundamentalist RACISM-CHASERS like cnulan.
* CHANNELED OUT AND DOWN IN SCHOOL
* LACK OF COMMUNAL ROLE MODELS
* LACK OF EDUCATIONAL ROLE MODELS
1) In your narrative one is made to assume that some force ACTED UPON these young Black males......WHO was this force that you speak of? Might it have been the cannibalistic forces WITHIN that strip the varnish off of their souls?
2)ANTI-MAINSTREAMED he says!!! cnulan - I talk a lot about the "Speak Truth To Power"/"Fight The Power" contingent that is strong within our community. Are they seeking to 'mainstream' these young turks or MAKE THEM INTO "I Don't Give A What Rebels"?
When I point out how Thug Hip Hop videos set a particular narrative where THE COPS and the JUDGES are the ENEMIES seeking to OPPRESS the "innocent" Black kid that happens to have a $2000 watch on his wrist - why don't I hear you say anything about freaking "anti-mainstreaming"?
3) Channeled down and out in school. cnulan - WHO RUNS THESE SCHOOLS and SETS THEIR POLICIES TO-DAMNED-DAY?
How many times have you heard me say about the Black political agenda "We are winning yet we are losing even greater"?
Yesterday you posted how if scientists had their way there would only be 2 Republican states. I countered that the Black community is ONE BIG BLUE STATE across the nation. Isn't it about time you CAUGHT UP WITH ME and begin to translate these PARTY LOYALTIES that you have into ACTUAL BENEFIT for your community?
What good is it to now "be running things" when things are running off of the tracks? You and other Progressives FIRED the administrations who failed previously. They were replaced by people who "look like us and have OUR CHILDREN'S BEST INTERESTS IN MIND". Now that they are in place.....when can the Black community expect the fruit from your mobilization efforts? Or should be be appeases as you MOVE THE GOAL POST
