Jim Moran: Racism fueled Democrats' midterm losses
Jim Moran - a White man, is directing his indictment against White voters who, in his view, don't like the idea of having a "Black man" in the White House as their national leader. They were able to convince enough of their "White friends" who voted for Obama back in 2008 to switch their vote, stripping power away from the "Black Guy In Chief" by giving the Republicans the Senate.
I assure you that if we ONLY focus on THIS "racism" all is well with most "Liberal White Snarling Foxes" and their "Progressive who are Democrat who are Black" coalition buddies.
If anyone ever wants to understand that RACISM IS A TWO WAY STREET, by all means, tune in to "Fight The Power Radio" at WAOK AM.
In as much as I am within a community that heavily transacts upon RACE in their political calculations - it would be ignorant of me to assume that WHITE FOLKS don't have a heavy streak of RACE based calculus in what they do.
The problem is that within the national political discourse - White voter racial preference is a SUPERIOR offense.
As Jim Moran (D-VA) if there is RACISM in the Chicago mayor's race? The same members of the present establishment which are presiding over eroded franchises (education most specifically) are able to actively plot to find a "consensus Black candidate" and have others agree to drop out of the race. This was not plotted upon in some private "Concerned Citizens Council" meeting that was closed to the public. This was OPENLY debated for all of the media to see with their own eyes.
The problem was that the very same media - and "Snarling Fox Progressive Blogs" that you can go to TODAY and find data sets which prove that White voters in the "Confederate South" have a statistically probably lower rate of voting for then candidate Barack Obama - thus proving their RACISM - didn't say a damned thing about the outright racial engineering that takes place in Chicago and so many other places
The Power Of The Indictment. The Indictment That Is Used Selectively
"White Supremacy" and "Black Inferiority" are two forces that are tied at the hip.
Those who circle the nation seeking out evidence of "White Racial Ignorance" as a means of indicting the ignorant person and retain the "Black consciousness" focused in a certain place (here and here) are also the purveyors of the greater assault upon Black people - the hijacking of our "Community Consciousness". This focus is misappropriated upon the American Political Domain - at the cost of our community development operations that require a sober mind to complete.
After they invest their passions and achieve a "Mission Accomplished" moment, only to see their communities come apart at the seams - we see a high likelihood that "Black Inferiority" will be transacted upon to explain the conditions that exist despite them doing all that was necessary to succeed. The RACISM that bore down against our community while our long time enemy has been living amongst us but doing a "two for you, one two for me" style of resource distribution is now seen in their DEPARTURE where they "left us all to ourselves". (See NAACP in North Carolina). Having just screened a documentary about "Central High School" in Little Rock - 50 years after the fact - the new transaction of Black inferiority has shifted. No longer is it about the denied access to the "White school". Today they are more granular in their resentments - making note that the "Advanced Placement Courses" in the otherwise "diverse" school is "too white". They don't allege that there is any photograph that is mandated to be attached to the application to the AP courses. Instead they desire an "affirmative" program to insure that Black people are represented in these classes. Per their calculus - the unspoken inference of having too few "equal human beings" of a given hue in the "elite classes" translates into a statement about the intrinsic competencies of both.
These same people are unable to note what the "engineering programs" say - but with a loudspeaker.
Removing The Chocolate Covered Coating To Expose The Ideological Core
In the last series of national elections where President Obama and implicitly his RACE has been an undertone - it is the White voter that has been asked to "check" his racial voting tendencies - hell they have had 43 other presidents in office - why is one such a threat? Far too often, however, the all too quick analysis of "racial motivation" assigned by various MSNBC analysts to the agenda of the Tea Parties hide their own agenda. Barack Obama has been the best "ball carrier" for their own Progressive-Fundamentalist agenda. If they can use "racism chasing" techniques as a means of fighting off even legitimate criticism of policies - then the ends justify the means. Their goal is to advance their progressive agenda - while putting the critics of such on the defensive. The greatest "when did you stop beating your wife?" scheme of all.
My agenda is not POLITICS.
It is in building up the STRENGTH of the Black community.
The best way to dilute all of these attempts to hijack the index of race relations in America by focusing on the willingness of White people to vote for Black people is to FOCUS ON WHAT WE AS BLACK PEOPLE ENTERED INTO POLITICS IN THE FIRST PLACE: The general improvement of our community condition.
Rep Moran would be hard pressed to start out from a street view and then argue that the greatest threat to Black people's interests in 2011 is coming from "White folks", many of whom are seeking to express their own interests locally. By constantly redirecting our attention into the national game of political chess - the Black community loses as we are drawn in.
Find me a day where there is no more racism and I will show you a day where there is no more murder or rape or poor people.
