Black-Wing Talk Radio caller "THEY See Us As Apes, Dogs Or Monkeys That They Can Shoot Down. WE Need To Have A Strong Showing Tonight To Show THEM That They Are Wrong".
These are the words of a Black man who called into the WAOK "Fight The Power" radio program just a second ago in preparation for a "civil rights" rally in Union City Georgia tonight in support for "justice" for 19 year old Ariston Waiters who was shot dead by Union City police a few weeks ago. I believe the caller said that he was with "The National Action Network". (I will remove this claim after I review my recording of the program after my computer completes this segment of recording if I am wrong.)
My new understanding of all that churns in our community is that I SUPPORT THE FREE SPEECH AND FREE ASSEMBLY RIGHTS of all in this country. Those who gather tonight in Union City are expressing their concern about how the police engage alternations within the Black community and appear to be too quick to draw their weapons, ultimately leading to a higher number of "officer involved shootings" within communities of color.
Their goal is to get police forces to act more responsibly in these engagements, not turning a request for protection of the community into yet another assault upon the community, thus increasing the tension between the community and law enforcement. I get it.
I do not plan to attend.
Not because I do not believe that this is not a valid concern. A young man's life was lost needlessly and surely the claims made by the police department do not align with the observations of others who did not see a physical altercation between the policeman and the now dead Waiters who was said to be fleeing rather than confronting the officer.
I believe that the issues regarding crime and justice within the Black community are vast enough to afford them to "do their thing" in line with their ideology while I continue to focus on that which I believe creates more "body bags" within the Black community and thus is a greater threat. It is not an "either/or" but a "BOTH" situation.
I will go further to say that the unmanaged/unmitigated cultural and social situation that I focus upon leads to the increased interactions and conflict with the police.
The Use Of Language To Rile Up The People
The provocative language of the caller had an effect upon me but opposite of what he was intending to engender.
When I hear such talk on Black-Wing Talk Radio my first instinct is to wonder if they believe that the "Street Pirates" who are far more pervasive killers of Black people think of fellow Blacks as "Apes, Dogs and Monkeys", worthy of being shot down?
If the "White Police Officer" is conditioned by White Supremacy from birth to arrive at the "crime scene" to apply this viewpoint that is so frequently fatal to Black suspects in the field of his vision............what does the EQUAL HUMAN BEING who plays the part of "The Street Pirate" - shooting our people done on the street and leaving the carcass dead as if it were a squirrel or a pitbull that fell out of the back of a pickup truck on the Interstate - WHAT is going through his mind in the way of conditioned hatred for Black people?
The problem that I have with this sort of talk is that I sense a bit of "compensation" within it. The truth is that THEY KNOW that the consciousness of the "Would Be Pillar Of Our Community" who's ultimate utility to our community was of their own making. Greater than that which they actively permit in our communities in the way of "libertine"/permissive social and cultural dogma is the VOID of social governance as expressed in their ideology which contributes to these "peer formed" values and associations that these young people carry.
It is a well known conclusion as evidenced through time that "The Young White Male" has the propensity to advance his own genetic standing above all others by leveraging THE SYSTEM to his advantage. The "Civil Rights Movement" was an attempt to mitigate the brutal forms that were transacted in support of this agenda. The evidence of success or failure of this effort IS NOT the incidental "racist" murder/rape/firing of a Black person. Instead the SYSTEM who sees this and applies or fails to apply THE LAW provides the index to "the state of race relations".
When we get to the matter of Black on Black - intramural assaults and the ability to curtail them - the hyperbolic words use to "rile up the Black folks" to come out to a march are changed dramatically.
You Can't Protest Your Way To Good Self-Governance WITHIN The Black Community
I am 100% certain based upon my observations that "Congregational Unity" is more important than "Effective Outcomes". With the "congregational unity" - failure to achieve the promised outcomes allows the congregation to MOVE THE GOAL POSTS, never making an indictment against those who received their investments.
As I watch all of the antics that go on in the name of 'The Black Community Agenda' I am often stunned how, despite the obvious looking the masses right in the face, their own complicity prevents them from noting the distinction between their "permanent interests" and the METHODOLOGY that was adopted which purported to add increase to these interests.
The short term agreement which says "You Are Not Going To Pick Our Black Leaders" merely produces the burden that the Black community is forced to carry. This burden is the failure to develop COMMUNITY GOVERNANCE THROUGH OUR INSTITUTIONS that should have been perfected over time.
The people who are truthfully denying the EQUAL VALUE OF BLACK PEOPLE are those who's actions today ensure that little is going to be different 50 years hence as our INSTITUTIONS are not reformed to "finish" those who matriculate through them in a manner that is in line with our community needs.
