|Today's Wall Street Journal|
There are two parallel worlds being reported upon regarding this nation's economic condition:
- The images as presented by mainstream national and financial news services
- The images as presented by the "Obama Fist Bump Black Press"
I want to dispel and claims that I am biased against (as someone told me the other day) "Black people who are trying to get together to move our people forward in the struggle. [Despite the fact that there is more 'progressivism' in their theories than there is evidence of "Black Community ORGANIC advancement]
I challenge everyone to tune into www.WAOK.com today and listen to what they are reporting as it relates to the latest economic news.
The Need For "Good News" About Affirmed Subjects And The Negative Bias Against Those Who Are Adopted As "Enemies Of Real Black People"
If you are deemed a "hater" in Black America (in the political realm" ) this doesn't mean that you are free from negative focus. This only means that you attack approved subjects and you defend those who the congregation said were worthy of protection.
One might take the general philosophy of "Stay away from negative people. Stand next to positive and affirming people who will lift your spirit". You'd be mistaken if you believe that this is the operating philosophy within. The goal is to protect the IDEOLOGY and all who carry it forward. Gross negatively can be heard against those who are a threat to the ideology. Silence is granted to those who - despite their control over key institutions - and who register numbers that are far short of what was promised and what are needed.
Instead of "happiness" or "hateration" we should focus on THE FIDELITY OF THE MODELS OF THE REAL WORLD
If our people are about to walk across a rickety bridge and our noted leaders ask us to march forward as they show the "Promised Land" is on the other side - as projected on the wall of the mountain using a PowerPoint presentation - those who DEMAND that they provide engineering samples which attest to the sturdiness of that bridge are not "haters". Those who affirm the forward motion of our people as they "connect" with us through fanciful words, lyrical spoken word and culturally relevant graphics on their blog site cannot be said to have our "Permanent Interests" in mind based on the marketing accouterments that they present to our popular appeal.
Where Is The Evidence of Organic Competency Development For Those Of Us Who Have Matriculated Through The Process?
I am less bothered by forthright ideological beliefs than I am about fraud in the defense of one's position. When this bigoted position causes the person or news propaganda source to act in a manner that is totally dependent upon their affinity with the subject under inspection - disconnected from their own ultimate core interests that their ideology was supposed to deliver to the masses who stayed united behind them - THIS is the problem.
It is not enough for us to have to suffer through the very same problems that they promised would be fixed IF we stayed united as a people. The fact that when that which they sold us as the gateway to our community's success is accomplished - instead of these forces having the transparency of consciousness to appraise the results and where we stand - they are seen obfuscating, blaming unseen forces and reporting that they were wrong........................ the problems that they had assumed were the case as they stood on the outside.. prior to "seeing the books" were worse than they had assumed. They are going to need us to stick together for another interval before we can even THINK about holding them accountable.
The clear point of appraisal that all of us should submit ourselves to is the index of "Organic Competency Development" that is evident within our community after agreeing to support a certain set of policies. The reason why this is important is because - absent the demand for "organic uplift" people will mistake the state that is achieved via "RECEIPT THROUGH REDISTRIBUTION" as equal to one in which the institutions within our community are managed to lift us up to the desired end-state.
The "Redistribution" theory leaves our people on the "Permanent Chase". We are told what our "RIGHTS" are and thus we are ensnared in the struggle. As such the "Obama Fist Bump Black Press" is loathed to contrast the INSTITUTIONS THAT ARE NOW IN FAVORABLE HANDS with what should reasonably be expected as INCREASE in our condition that these favorable policies to them should bring.
When a group shows themselves to be too contaminated to provide the necessary leadership and vision they need to be pushed aside by stronger operating practices - IF the people have the intent of correcting the issues that they are aggrieved about. Short of that - we need to inspect the real agenda of the people - not their words.
