Therefore we have the same amount of brilliance and IGNORANCE within our ranks as any other population of people on the planet.
The resent episode of the Black mother in Akron OH who sought out better quality education for her own children has allowed various BIGOTS to use the the Internet and other channels to express their "judicial rulings" that they had before their walked into the jury box in which this particular issue demanded their opinion.
For a long while we were told that Black people should "get theirs" any way they can. As long as they "pull another up" along with them - this was "one more Black who made it through". This tale has proven to be as played out as the "Blaxploitation" movies that we heard it said within. TODAY the most "brilliant" of our social and political policy theorists have another agenda.
In a perpetual shadow boxing match that they register against their enemy who is always out to get them, PROFITING from their burial we can see how it is that despite their "Mission Accomplished" victories over the key institutions of Black America they STILL never take a hit for the failures that exist after they have given us the "benefit" of their brilliance.
As I have scanned though various social media outlets and "Fight The Power" radio stations - a certain theme has emerged with identifies the problem that Mrs Bolar had faced which "forced" her to do what she did. The analysis of some people allow them to do either or both of two things:
- Blame the condition of the Akron Public Schools (and others) upon some organized conspiracy to destroy the academic outcomes for Black (or poor) children
- Allow them to escape, UNSCATHED by the pictures of them partying at the campaign victory parties held by the numerical majority of the school board members presently empaneled. Since all of them have terms that are staggered over 4 years - they were assured at least 3 parties each election season
When I analyze the problems that we face as a community I go to the PATTERNS and not the "transactional" points which the operatives seem to get ensnared within. These patterns which show the mental entrapment of people (and this is not just "progressives" here. All ideological bigots - right or left are guilty) go along way in explaining the carnage.
"Charter Schools" - The New "Private Prisons".
A few years ago one of my "focus words" was "PROPORTIONALITY". The goal of the concept was to avoid certain people from renting a "scanning electron microscope" and finding "1 part per billion" of some contamination and use the evidence as their justification for the tragic failure that has happened. All the while their ideological color blindness has them unable to see the toxic waste that they have added to the mixture.
Back when the key indictments against Private Prisons and the drive for profits was the "indictment de jour" (Oh - I'm sorry - it has not stopped) I was moved to go and do research in order to establish the PROPORTIONALITY of the concern. I found that only 2% of the population of US prisoners at the time where housed in these facilities. A mere 60,000 people. Hardly grounds for their grand conspiratorial concerns.
Today CHARTER SCHOOLS have been inserted into that slot.
In their nefarious goal to destroy (only) the public schools that Black people attended - those individuals who took their kids out of public school and started up "private academies" to escape the wave of the power base that now run the "Mission Accomplished Cities" are now said to be returning to finish off the Black urban dweller - using educational policy "surgical scissors" to stab our young students in the brain stem.
In the various outlets which focused on the grand scheme for the take over I never heard anyone ENUMERATE the present number of Charter schools as contrasted to the total number of traditional government operated schools. (Note Charter schools are public schools)
- Total Public Schools In America: 97,382 (year 2005)
- Total Public School Students: approx 64M
- Total Charter Schools In America: 3,000 (2005) [3%]
- Total Charter School Students: 0.7 M [ 1%]
Please recall - Charter Schools are typically initiated based upon PARENTAL demand for access to a customized set of educational policies which will lead to better academic outcomes for their children. To summarily dismiss the TRANSPARENT attempts of the majority of the parents to seek out better education by embroiling them into a grand conspiracy theory is a slap in their faces.
The truth is that there is a group of ideologues who seek to protect the Public School System - students be damned. They have been so conditioned to the elbow in the ribs and the "Psst, watch'em....they are trying to steal our power" (the power of the adults that is) that they have lost their way and their CONSCIOUSNESS.
The Power Of Denial Of Their Establishment Role
One day someone will investigate the phenomenon that frequently rears its head when it comes to urban politics. While it is a frequently used tactic for one political candidate to run as an "outsider" and thus drive reforms - to see an entire ideological force deny their roles in the ESTABLISHMENT that is present in their own community takes this notion into a grand scale of perversion.
They congregationally agree to deny their own power in shaping the present unsavory condition in the school system and community that they dominate. Yet these same people can be heard saying that another person with the wrong ideology could not be elected as "chief pooper scooper' in the voting district. The tactic of proclaiming their prowess on the one hand and then transacting their inferiority when it comes to standing in account is a tired scheme which imperils our community.
They can be heard calling out their ideological enemies as being SILENT about the academic issues in Akron OH. All the while the balance of the leadership in this place have voting patterns akin to their own.
By constantly agreeing to not "self-indict" themselves over the present condition yet putting the onus on their ideological adversaries to craft a FIX ......."If you REALLY care about Black people as you claim"..........the same tragic cycle of nullification is continued. They will continue to "try harder" in gaining more political power as the grand fix. They will continue blaming those who "can't even become dog catchers" in the district for the continuing problems.
If one makes note of the scheme and tries to stay as far away from their mentality as possible - then - "there's an app for that" - they will be said to be hatefilled per their attempts to get away from the "least of these".
