The Black voter either votes enthusiastically for the Democrat or shows his displeasure in the Democrats by not showing up to vote.
For the Democratic Establishment and the "Democrat Who Is Black" operative the political ads targeted to Black people are not done to convince them to vote for the Democrat instead of the Republican. Instead they are ads to get him out to vote in the first place. The operatives know what the Black voter is going to do once the curtain closes.
The only time the Black voting populace spits is during the Democratic primary in which they may divide. They unify behind the winning Democrat in the general election regardless of how contentious the "Black General Election" was.
Black voters still support Obama but are ambivalent about midterm elections
I told you that there would be days like this!!!
This article has been queued up in draft form for several days as I go into the mood to fully analyze and discuss the findings that are fully represented within.
I am not going to repost the article. I ask that you go to the link above and read the words yourself. In doing so try to enter into the consciousness that is held by these people - assuming that it differs any from that which you have.
These extra days have benefited the direction that I now choose to take in responding to the consciousness that is so disturbing to me.
The best way I can explain what is contained within regarding the nullification of the Black community's permanent interests per its loyalty to its permanent friends is to do comparative analysis in order to prove my point.
First and foremost let me dispense of one slanderous point - "Black people are not 'blindly loyal' or 'stupid' as some would argue in our 90% support of the executive branch leadership as we suffer through massive pain in economics, education and public safety - the key benefits that the machine that is in power promised to deliver to us upon its ascension into power. Instead, as I listen to the debates of a broad array of people I conclude that it is their MODEL OF THE WORLD that lacks fidelity with the real world and thus they are satisfied with focusing on the variables that they find favor in. Unfortunately even upon victory they don't have their expectations satisfied. The use of the over generalization or the conspiracy theory which leads to a particular indictment enables many of the mental loose ends that would otherwise trigger more critical inspection to be satisfied. When you have a cadre of co-conspirators of the very same mindset - the "Get in where you fit in" effect smooths the way.
Today as I watched "Democracy Now" I found a perfect video clip that captures the sentiments of many (not all) Blacks as it relates to President Obama. Now I realize that Bill O'Reilly got in trouble when he dared to compare American Blacks with that of our brothers and sisters in Haiti. I struggle to understand why this would be offensive. In making note of such patterns a more sustainable solution throughout the diaspora might be had. Most certainly the loyalties shown to the ANC in South Africa and the previous "unity enforcement" that I reported about with Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe closely match that which is seen among Black Americans.

In the video an aggrieved Haitian man, seeing the massive carnage and destruction in his nation, 6 months after the fatal earthquake that killed more than 200,000 EQUAL HUMAN BEINGS. He receives solace in his own mind, however that but for the return of ONE MAN........Jean-Bertrand Aristide.......his lot and his country's lot would be far different than the present.
For this aggrieved man who does not have to personally deal with the machinations and complexities by which the resources that are needed to rebuild his nation are coordinated - he need only vest his confidence in the return of the man who made him so happy in the past. Regardless of how the situation at hand has changed so precipitously. Even if the man who once sat as the most powerful man in the world per his placement in the seat of the president of the United States has made the cause in Haiti at the top of his list.
(Chicago Lady 216 Wants Obama To Make Her Feel Good Once Again - Just As She Felt While Standing In Grant Park......Prior To Her Son Being Murdered In Chicago - Which Brought Her Back To Reality. We Cannot Allow People With This Type Of Consciousness To Lead Our Way Forward Any Longer.)
President Obama serves this same role in the minds of many Black Americans. With the talking point which said "a Black man will never be the president of this RACIST nation" having been proven a lie many of them fail to see that a "Black man in as president" must be allowed to be the President of the United States and that his interests as president are not always in their racial interests. Worst of all some have failed to grasp this observable point with the mayor, the city council chair, the county chair, the US senator and the governor that offered up this lesson before.
I will now make general references about the main themes from the article that prove the points that I have been articulating on this blog for years.
Job From The Government Agent
"If Obama was in this chair right here, I would tell him to give me a job. That's what
I would ask for,"
Few things frighten me and frustrate me more than a person who seeks prosperity yet is oblivious about how to obtain it. Even when the real world evidence that has been transacted from his previous behavior does not pan out - this is not enough information to cause him to change.
Then I look at the viewpoint of those who represent this man's thoughts and I understand how he was made to think this way:
UAW and Rainbow/PUSH Coalition Head To Detroit To Push For Jobs Agenda
Detroit - the city of the wreckage of the Black middle class and the precipitous drop in Black wealth due to the plummet of home values is the scene of the PROTEST against corporations and the government to initiate policies that CREATE JOBS. Far be it for the protesters to make now of how as the political party that they support grew in power in Detroit, in Michigan and in this region - their interests in long term employment as employees was diminished. Their own protectionist rules played a strong part in the demise of the "consumers of labor" who afforded people the ability to sell their labor for a salary.
We are in campaign season locally. I am steamed by those who know the sentiments of their base and who make anti-corporate attacks while promising to create jobs. Many fail to see the correlation between the ascension of this ideology, the enemies that they focus upon and the negative impact felt by the Black community when these corporate enemies departed from their midst.
The ultimate irony is that for the Black community's latent productivity and economic prowess to be unleashed those who attack "consumers of labor" must find a way to bring them back into the districts so that the Black middle class can be regenerated. In short they need some force to struggle against. When their ideology won and was the last man standing - the Black community suffered a major economic set back.
Aversion To Criticize Obama
"That man has a hell of a workload, and Bush left a hell of a mess. I like what he's doing. But I can't feel it."
With the local news agencies running job fairs on a continuing basis and sticking microphones in the faces of Black people it is easy to see the unmistakable pattern that is present: Regardless of the economic assaults that they suffer from - Black people are not going to attack Barack Obama on camera and risk providing video footage for the Republicans to make use of. The thought that "we must protect Obama and make sure that he has a successful presidency lest NO FUTURE BLACK PRESIDENT WILL BE HAD" is alive and well in the minds of many Black people. PERIOD.
They mistakenly believe that by denying the obvious that people will check their ownselves and wonder if it is they who are out of alignment. Instead in this world were we tend to focus on "Negative Bigotry" few people focus on the unseen "dark matter" (Hey - I just watched Morgan Freeman's "Through The Worm Hole") called "Positive Bigotry". Just as there is no such thing as "reverse racism" it is also the case that there is no such thing as "positive bigotry" in protection of a person due to favorable attributes that are not relevant to his job title. It is just bigotry just the same.
Bush And The GOP Did It / No Apprciation Of The Architecture Of The Nation
Despite his frustration with the slow pace of the recovery, Adams, who has portraits of the first family on the walls of his shop, doesn't think Obama bears the blame for his troubles
I monitor a wide variety of media outlets just to keep an eye on the pulse of what people are thinking. I notice that there are "Democrats who are Black" that routinely call into Right-wing radio shows in order to counter Michael Medved, Neal Boortz and even Herman Cain.
For these callers they believe that they have achieved an effective point of refutation by pointing out what Bush has done to destroy the nation. Ronald Reagan started the downward spiral of this nation and George W Bush sealed our collective fate. Its like these callers have read the same script as they have the same talking points and end game.
Regardless of how much the Democrats control their local interests and STILL they grieve - they are able to "look past the sins of the local Democrats and key in on the nearest Republican".
2 years of Obama.
4 years of Obama
8 years of Obama
Regardless of how the Black community stands in 2012 or 2016 - George W Bush who sat in Washington DC will have been the cause of the massive catastrophe that President Obama tried but came up short in fully addressing.
Alabama Whites Versus National Blacks
Polls show that 90 percent of African Americans believe Obama is doing a good job, far higher than the president's overall 46 percent approval rating. Obama's popularity has dropped among nearly every segment of the population -- old, young, Republican, Democrat, white, Latino. Yet blacks still overwhelmingly support him, even though they are among those who have lost the most since he was elected.
In Alabama - the news that 89% of the White vote had gone to John McCain the White Republican was proof of the RACISM that is abundant among the White voter who could not bring themselves to vote for a Black man. Clearly that high rate of support for John McCain by this population subgroup stuck out like a sore thumb. HuffPo and other White Liberal media sources provided the research to expose this point.
I hope that you are not expecting HuffPo or DailyKOS (are they still around?) to post a complimentary expose' on the abnormally high rate of Black support for President Obama while all of the other demographics have been brought back down to reality and are now treating Obama like "The President Of The United States".
During the 2008 presidential election I noted on this blog how the "next logical question" was never asked as it related to the question made to White people: "Can White people put aside their racism and vote for a Black man if they believe him to be the better of the two candidates"? I also said that it is a mistake to ask Black people to see the Republican Party and its policies as a fully elastic alternative to the Democrats. This is simply not how it works. With the entire Black Establishment Machine as DEMOCRATS it is foolish to expect fluidity of the Black vote.
Instead the ENTIRE BLACK ESTABLISHMENT needs to be put on trial and made to stand up to a vote of confidence. The PERMANENT INTERESTS of the Black community needs to be held up as the reference. NOT the Republican Party as an alternative. Since my goal does not include having Black people become Republicans as a critical step in solving our community problems there must be some alternative construct that is present for Blacks to channel our community development efforts - thus the "Community Cultural Consciousness & Competency Development Domain" that is the logical competitor to the American Political Domain and the monopolization that the "Democrats Who Are Black" have contracted the Black vote out as day labors to their party.
The Fatal Mistake Of Living Vicariously Through Your Permanent Friend
"We understand the difficulty of being a black man in his position, because of our close proximity to race and how it affects our lives, so we are willing to give him the benefit of the doubt,"
The person who spoke these words has made the fatal mistake to live vicariously through the shoes of Barack Obama. He can only ever compromise his community's PERMANENT INTERESTS by seeking to set up a protection racket for his PERMANENT FRIEND. For some people "Barack Obama" IS a "Permanent Interest" for the Black community. As we inspect this point the truth comes out.
Certainly not all Black public officials enjoy this veil of protection. Clearly there is an ideological preference component to it. It is more clearly said that in as much as Barack Obama has the dual attribute of being Black and a Progressive president he needs to be protected by the Progressives - Black and White because he is implementing their agenda. The question of if their "Misery Index" is improved under his watch is of secondary concern. They are not going to trouble their permanent friend with these minor permanent interests.
Fully Vested In A Plan But Not Prepared For "Mission Accomplished"
"Maybe other people thought he had a magic wand and went to Hogwarts and thought, 'Oh, he's black so he's going to help all the black people,' " he said. "If that's what you're looking for, that ain't coming."
When I point out the architecture of the MACHINE that has strong influence over the Black community I make note of the plateaus that were present all along by which people could have understood what to expect once they reached the apex of the mountain. I struggle to understand how people are unable to make note of their local state of affairs after the victory has been won and make an inference as to what they should expect as they keep ascending upon the mountain using the same technique that is merely scaled.
All along they were made to believe that the unmet expectations could be addressed if they expanded outward, gaining more ground. Instead it was management of the local resources that would have brought this forward. It is far easier to lead people along, the motion being mistaken as progression than it is to manage them in place, working to have their own change to be the progress.
There Is No Such Thing As A Black Who Is Sold Out To The Democrats Over His Own Interests. The Democrats ARE The Black Interests
When Obama administration and Democratic officials travel here this week to address the annual convention of the NAACP, they will be looking for ways to turn black enthusiasm for the president into votes for his party.
When a group of people want to be used as a tool for other's benefit it is hard to convince them to take a step back and reconcile their own interests with their actions.
The recent antics of the NAACP are so predictable. Over the past 8 years we watched as Julian Bond was the presiding chairman with the Republican in power over the executive. At that time this non-partisan (snicker, snicker) organization fired bombs at the administration.
With a favorable array of people - in the executive branch, in the legislative branch and in all of the institutions locally where the NAACP has its strongest base (did someone say Detroit Michigan) there is not a chance that this bigoted organization is going to remain consistent and lean on the executive branch due to the fact that masses amounts of Black interests have gone unmet.
Instead they are going to try and HELP THIS ADMINISTRATION SUCCESSFULLY OBTAIN THE BLACK INTERESTS.
There is nothing personal about this - this is IDEOLOGICAL in nature.
Simply put the balance of the NAACP has a belief that a certain set of methodologies, once implemented represent the Black best interests. Far be it from them to actually test their theories with a promise to change if the they don't work out in the real world.
The Black community is harmed the most because of this void in transparent governance. The operatives who exploit this void profit the most.
The Democrats Need Blacks To Win. Blacks Are Too Dependent To Pull This Trigger
Carnahan is unlikely to win, however, unless black voters once again rush out to the polls.
Few people are going to push the notion that we should go to the places where Black people live and thus where Democrats are most dominate to validate the notion that Blacks prosper where their long time ideological adversaries are taken out of power.
The claim of "taking our vote for granted" is an empty statement. Political power merely leverages the organized power base that is in existence before you vote.
Obama's Sins Are Not Terminal
She said she voted for him and still strongly supports him, though she wishes he would spend more on education and reviving the economy and less on war.
Thursday's Wall Street Journal had a letter from 3 educators telling of the educational spending levels that were far short of what was promised by the Obama Administration. Please recall the attacks upon No Child Left Behind and the UNDERFUNDING that stripped money away from poor Black students.
I assure you that there will be no rocks thrown through the front windows of the White House per an orchestrated campaign to weaken the the occupant of the mansion in preparation for a more favorable person will occupy it. Obama has told of the campaign by the Republicans which says "If he fails then We (the Republicans) win". For the Black activists the complementary statement is "If Obama fails US and he speak too loudly against him the HE loses and then WE lose our guy in the White House". The only option is that they tuck this $800 Million slight in educational funding in the same manner that they have thus far taken:
- An increase in combat activities and fatalities in Afghanistan
- Record increases in deficit spending after years of complaints about "drunken spending"
- Continence of certain domestic policies that had been seen as violations of civil liberties
That would be "suck it in" and hope that no one else notices the hypocritical differences in responses.
The Black Left Are Not Going To Remind You That They Erected The Machine That Extends From The Black Community Up Through To The White House And STILL We Have Massive Grievances
Prominent black public figures such as commentator Tavis Smiley and scholar Michael Eric Dyson have accused Obama of not doing enough to create jobs in black communities. And some black academics are looking more critically at Obama's reluctance to talk about race.
The "attacks" on Obama hoisted by Smiley, Dyson and West are from the left with the goal of drawing Obama to the left. There is no ABSOLUTE criticism of the results. To do so would open up the door to THEM having to disavow some of their own core beliefs so that better results might be had. Tavis Smiley got a taste of the very cauldron of medicine that he had cooked up for "Disagreeable Blacks who Disagree" such as Clarence Thomas. In as much as Tavis Smiley is a primary architect for the machine that is now in power over our interests I have little sympathy for his fall from grace.
The bottom line of it all is that those who sold the Black community on the solution set that we are now living within are not going to self-report of the failings after several decades of self diagnosis, self-prescription and self medication.
With the presidency in hand, strong Democratic majorities in the Congress and every single Black community in control of this same machine ONE WOULD THINK that a powerful set of questions that challenge the entire scheme would be had at some point.
IF you think that these questions are going to come organically - you are sadly mistaken.
What Do The Democrats Have To Do To Black People To Lose The Black Vote?
