Minster Farrakhan - March 2010 - "We Must Protect Our Brother Obama And His Family"
I Must Reject Your Analysis Of President Obama
I do agree that Michelle Obama and their children should be off limits in political discourse.
Unfortunately the very same people who called it "RACIST" when the White folks of Alabama and Mississippi voted to the tune of 89% and 91% for their "brother" John McCain - they were called RACISTS! In several debates over the continued relevance of Voting Rights Act - these two states lack of support for Obama was used as evidence of a "racist threat" in voting.
What you are doing, Minster Farrakhan is to FUSE the question of the "Interests of the Black Community" with the "American Political Domain". In my assessment the greater evidence of RACISM that goes beyond "racist White people" working hard to make Obama a one term president is the systematic harm that is done to our community's permanent interests by the individuals who OUR COMMUNITY has promoted into power. As they pursue your "racial protectionalism" of these local people who sit in these key institutional seats - just as you suggest that all "conscious Black people" do in protection of Obama - you inadvertently retain these entrenched forces while abstracting them from any accountability.
Mr Farrakhan - fast forward one year in your "Saviors Day 2011" and out of your mouth came the claim that DESPITE all of these Black people in power (I say Progressives - regardless of their race) - the Black community has not made much absolute forward advancement. I question why you don't RECONCILE this observation from 2011 with the protection racket that you have articulated in March 2010 (see above) as you sat around a table full of Progressive-Fundamentalists who clapped in support of your plan - escaping any accountability that they should share with our present condition after their take-over.
PRESIDENT OBAMA IS AN OPERATIVE IN THE 'AMERICAN POLITICAL DOMAIN'
I am not asking that you "write Obama off".
I am only asking that you cease from fusing the ultimate interests of the Black Community with - what will ultimately benefit - the MACHINE that ALREADY has control over our community.
I have assessed you as a "Non-White White Supremacist". Again - this is the dispassionate conclusion that I am forced to come to. This "Obama Protection Racket" is a perfect example to substantiate this.
We as Black people, having struggled to put "favorable people" into power and still having fallen short of the promises - are asked to focus on countering the "White Right-wing RACISTS" as they insult and assault Obama.
With all due respect - Minister Farrakhan - Who should I fire after they attracted our VOTE with the promises of different outcomes? Yet today they and you are attempting to get me to STRUGGLE SOME MORE. I am asked to play this defense rather than recognizing the OFFENSE that has been rooted within our community. The benign neglect that these institutions have suffered from the inattention based on the external war - has allowed these conditions to perpetuate.
WE MUST treat President Obama as "President of the United States" and "Commander In Chief".
HE might be a member of the Black community.
His OFFICE must be understood to be EXTERNAL to the "Black Community".
Those embedded confidence men who seek to "make Black people HAPPY" once again in 2012 seek to make such a fusion of these two domains.
