They obviously studied the prevailing Black Political consciousness - tDihe most loyal Democratic Party constituency in America.
If you scroll down the list of articles on "Huffington Post -Black Voices" you'll notice that it is yet another "Fish Don't Know He Wet" Black Progressive-Fundamentalist perspective media source.
The problem is not that they have a far left of center perspective - as is the case with the audience that it caters to. The problem is that when we seek to apply their view of the world to the REAL WORLD --- WITHIN the Black Community - so much of what they claim is askew to the truth.
You see normally - a "professional consultant":
a patient in his care who came his way for a cure of what ails him.
Regardless of how this professional consultant makes the patient feel that he cares for his health and that they are B.F.F.'s - ultimately the PATIENT has the fiduciary duty to appraise the efficacy of the "treatment" that he has submitted his body, mind and consciousness to - as rendered by the person that holds his confidence.
In his latest article on Huff Po - PPPP Rev Al Sharpton - this time standing WITHIN the circle of trust of the Black community - to tell us that "Black Wealth has been diminished".
Now keep in mind that while normally a "leader" in a position of incumbency is put on the hot seat for failings that have occurred "on his watch". You typically hear them ducking and weaving and obfuscating - talking about everything but this decline. After all they were sent into power as a representative of the people. They received this confidence from the people largely because they told of the INCREASE that the masses would receive if they stayed united and kept struggling in pursuit of these interests.
PPPP Rev Al Sharpton knows Black people very well.
He knows that he need only itemize the tons of grief that is in our community - no need to run away from it. Then he takes OWNERSHIP of our grief - proclaiming that he is going to be the voice of those who are grieving. Some "march on your behalf" metaphor will be crafted in his oratory.
By the close of the article the grand indictment against his ideological enemy will be cast.
It all comes together at the end.
We know who the enemy is that MADE US POOR - we merely need to stay strong and stay united.
(Do you notice that a person who is seeking to work your confidence never uses NUMBERS and PROPORTIONS to render a transparent argument?)
Why is it that there is no other "Black Press Operative VOICE" that is taking in what their ideological soul mates are spitting out and representing themselves as the DEFENDER OF THE BLACK COMMUNITY'S INTERESTS and not just the defenders of their Ideology and Party?
I have said over time - From my experience, an ideological fundamentalist cares less about the accuracy in why someone believes as she does. She cares more THAT they agree in common.
Thus the bevy of operatives who's goal is to "keep Black folks marching" - they care more that their "Equal Black Ballots" are vested in the appropriate place than they are concerned that they have laid out a transparent argument which convinced them.
For the life of me I can't understand how anyone who claims to be operating in pursuit of "The Black Community's Permanent Interests" can look past 45 years of organic development PROMISES that have fallen through and instead agree to place all of their latest "ummph" into getting Obama's "2 million jobs plan" passed through past "Republican Opposition".
Even if we put aside the PROPORTIONALITY filter which says that this is "Too Little" - it is their unwillingness to show self respect and not go along into the tank once again - as they are made to look past the former promises that did not increase our standing.
It is clear that they merely want Black people STRUGGLING. The "Struggle Motion" being evidence of our unity.
