- Atlanta Post: Devin Robinson: What Is The Shame in Helping Blacks?
- The Grio: Social Justice Advocate Monique Morris: Why We Need A New Deal For Black America
The session stirred up a lot of engaging discussion but what stuck out to me most was a statement made by our Atlanta mayor. Though I voted for him and consider him to be a smart business man, a remark made by him at this conference severely disturbed me. Reed responded to a statement West made in reference to President Obama helping the poor. “The minute Obama tries to provide programs specifically for Blacks, he will be out of office faster than you can bat an eye…” he said.
Steve Harvey had his share of remarks on his syndicated show saying, “Healthcare reform is a plan that helps Blacks the most and we should understand if the POTUS doesn’t mention a program being directly for Black folks… he is the President of the entire United States, not president of the hood.”
I need to set this up.
I am sitting in my home office this morning. I am queuing up my Internet radio recording of "Black-Wing Talk radio" shows for the day. (The Presidential election season is in full blast. The manipulation of the Black Consciousness is at full steam head. There is little "Blackness" in their scheme. I need to have documented proof of the foolishness that is put forth in the guise of "Black Community Consciousness". It just so happens to be indistinguishable from the Democratic Party propaganda. Their challenge is to get another round of investments of 'Equal Black Ballots' at a time when a No-Confidence Vote is due on the Black Racial Services Machine).
The "Loraine Jacques White Show" on WAOK has just came on.
She opened the show ripping in to Republican TEA PARTY Candidate Gov Rick Perry. Perry attacked Obama and it is her duty to attack Perry. (There is no doubt that Perry will be called a RACIST before the end of the show).
"Dr White" says that she would love to see a "Perry/ Bachmann ticket" which will be a SURE WIN FOR BARACK OBAMA.
Then she introduced the article above "What Is The Shame In Helping Blacks?"
Stop right there.In the articulation of their desire to see a re-election victory for Commander In Chief Obama - it is increasingly obvious that the Black Quasi-Socialist Progressive-Fundamentalist Racism Chaser has LOST HIMSELF.
He doesn't know what he is getting out of the deal EXCEPT - BEATING THE REPUBLICAN TEA PARTY MACHINE.
When you listen to "Black-Wing Talk Radio" and understand the threat that the political enemy of the Black Progressive is not a threat of lynching or police brutality or failed public schools - Black people largely control these three points (per the control over the local institutions and which incidents the masses choose to get offended over)
The threat from the enemy is a threat to PROGRESSIVISM.
Greater than the threat that we might one day return to the fields to pick cotton is that the Black community might one day be forced to live encamped with the monster that we have allowed to fester within our own communities, the nationalized claims that "Social Justice" provides having been severed. This monster is the consciousness of our people that results when and if the present forces of governance are left as "the last man standing". The prevailing influence upon our people's development. (They know this. Trust me. Don't allow the 'Too Black, Too Strong' front fool you. They push for strong government programs, not strong Black people who effectuate strong governance of our people.)
The article "What Is The Shame in Helping Blacks?" could not have come out at a better time. More than a generation into the "Bayard Rustin Black Community Development Plan Though Electing Democrats". The cherry on top sitting in the White House. On this day the author, Mr Robinson doesn't have a base solid accomplishments that he can point to attesting to the organic increase that this past movement that has received such a grand investment of our "community development hopes" brought to us. Instead his main argument is "you gave to them - what about us?"
They fail to note that we are presently in THEIR "Solution Period".
The "Mission Accomplished" signs within the Black community have cement moorings, attesting to their permanency and value as propaganda instruments.
When they remove the TIME LINE from discussion, withholding from our people the fact that this latest scheme is merely a recycling of the same "struggle" that they drive in conjunction with the election cycles of the 'American Political Domain'. Without the concept of time - the people new to the struggle can't comprehend the amount of time that their leadership has been "struggling" for the BASICS. Most of all - without time one can't measure the EFFECTIVENESS of that which Black people are compelled to do in pursuit of "social justice".
From the article:
Are Blacks that soiled, infected and bastardized that a politician can’t say that a specific program, aid or relief is designed to help Black folks without committing political suicide?Sorry Mr Robinson - this is a totally wrong analysis. Put aside the politician and lets look at the Negro.
You have an equal human being that possesses an "Equal Black Ballot" for investment in the "American Political Domain" . He also has the more valuable "Black Community Development Consciousness". This has been misappropriated into the "American Political Domain" while the 'Community Cultural Consciousness & Competency Development Domain" has been allowed to oxidize.
You need to be asking - WHY - Black people are compelled to make continuing INVESTMENTS when the machine that has accepted these investments, having made promises in order to receive the "call order" treats you with such contempt. For me this shows evidence not just of you getting played but that you being in such a sold out and weakened position that you can't do anything about it.
Focus on your leadership that has arranged this partnership, Mr Robinson. What are they made to suffer by the Black rank & file?
The 'Weakened Bargaining Position' Or 'A Position That Is Never Made Strong'?
The embedded confidence men who purport to speak for the interests of Black people fully understand that the primary external bargaining chip that all Black people have is the 'Equal Black Ballot'. Further he realizes that his White Progressive Cheshire Fox joint-venture partner is the primary "financial services firm" that will receive this investment.
The call for social justice in support of the 'Black Marshall Plan" - just as was done for the Native Americans, the Japanese, the Banks and the Corporations - is merely a rhetorical call out to their Black people with the hopes of framing this next election as the "Great Hope For Black Salvation" and a call out to the Cheshire Foxes to "come and get some of this".
Various Black (Democratic) political analysts (ie: the late Dr Ronald Walters) talked about the "Black voter mistress" in regards to our being attended to but only when it is crunch time. It should be noted that we are in the beginning of the cycle in which the embedded confidence men prompt the Black community to "open its collective legs".
With the investments of the "equal Black ballot" at a highly predictable scenario the only thing that those who are interested as such can do is to call upon some higher order of compassion in all men. The embedded confidence men are allowed to retain their position. Their enemy is compelled to yield his own.
Keep in mind that in 2008 White people were asked to put aside their "racial vote" and instead vote for t best candidate. In 2012 several Black embedded confidence men have stated on a CBS Radio-owned station that "Black people should not be afraid to VOTE OUR RACE". Thus far none of the people who made the 2008 demand for transparency in our voting have rebuked these latest efforts of racial skulduggery .
The key problem is that they are not asking us to "Vote Our Race".
They want us to vote "PROGRESSIVE".
If we were "Voting Our Race" there would be a massive "No-Confidence Vote in The Embedded Confidence Men".
Today's challenge is not for America to prove that she values the lives of Black people equally and is made to prove it.
The Black community's challenge is to prove that we have enough respect for ourselves to respect the INSTITUTIONS that we have in our community. In our present configuration and by congregational consent - any institutional standard can be molested. The collective amnesia as to the previous promises that never came through is enforced. As a result we are lead on a perpetual chase.
Who is going to reconcile what the healthy investments in "Hope & Change" has brought to us?
The primary benefit that I see is that the Progressive Institutions over our community are now infighting - attempting to figure if it is legitimate to "Speak Truth To Power" and risk the reelection chances of "The Power".
The vast majority of national voters are White, so when we say we can lose a national political seat we are accepting that Whites dictate what is politically acceptable. However, after further assessment of this design I feel that not being able to directly assist Blacks only contradicts many of the statements made by Whites (and others) that racism is a thing of the past.
Mr Robinson - I just heard a Black-wing talk radio host defend Rep John Lewis as he has "brought $5 billion into his district over his long tenure".
Do you think that she would be able to itemize the amount of money that was ORGANICALLY grown within thanks to his ability to tell Civil Rights stories from "back in the day"?
Your answer is embedded in your question.
With Blacks as 13% of the population and quickly being diluted by demographic changes - the best way to prioritize "Black spending priorities" is to focus on the "Local Economic Development" that would allow these locally generated funds to be spent as you see fit.
The irony is, sir, that the prevailing Black Progressive economic policy agenda calls for more nationalization of private wealth and then redistribution. You are pissed that your limited political power is not able to sway sufficient funds your way.
The circular reference that is "Black Politics" today is that we are asked to struggle for these nationalized funds with the promises that such investments in our communities will lift us up and make us more viable and independent.
What better time to create viability and independence than now?
My personal victory over the hijackers of our people's consciousness will come when a sufficient amount of Black people understand that the present arrangement that the congregation has agreed to is not working for our uplift.
