Retail politics are the enemy of material development WITHIN the Black community. It foments the "Team Play" that Malcolm X warned us about.
There are external forces to our community, like Newt Gingrich, who operate in the 'American Political Domain" and for the "other team" than the "team" that most Black people agree to play for. As such you have internal people - the Embedded Black Fox Confidence Men who, at this point in the campaign for the American president are talking more about RACISM than they bother to make note of the 95% rate of investments that the Black community was compelled to make - not just in 2008 but over the past 50 years and ask "Where is our return on investment?".
To be clear, some do ask. More accurately they "self report". After years of activism in compelling Black people to make such an investment they make note on the one hand that "We wuz slaves", thus detailing how far from behind we came. Then in defense of "their team", despite the condition of the 'Mission accomplished cities" they note the structural racism seen in the exclusion when their enemy was around them and the "corporate abandonment" when their enemy left them all alone. In both cases they argue that the "national social contract" that all Americans are signatories on has been violated. This is the "nationalized social justice" that I speak of. It is the necessary analgesic which allows them to make a transparent assessment of how our people have developed (or not) on their watch.
Newt Gingrich And No Republican Can Save The Black Community Because National Politics Are Not Going To Save The Black Community
Newt Gingrich said President Obama has “failed to pay attention” to the problem of black unemployment.I appraise the veracity of a person's argument based upon his ability to remain consistent across several issues.
The comments came Tuesday on CBS, as the former House Speaker defended a previous statement, in which he said that the black community should “demand paychecks and not be satisfied with food stamps.”
“The original statement was in the context of saying I would love to be invited by the NAACP to come to their convention, because the president has particularly failed to pay attention to the tremendous unemployment — we’ve had 43 percent black teenage unemployment,” Gingrich said.
In this case Republican Newt Gingrich fails miserably, proving that this is merely a statement of political opportunism.
It is counter to well stated conservative principles that the GOVERNMENT is the central force in jobs creation. Why then would Gingrich taunt Obama for failing to "focus on Black unemployment" when it is also true that, if he were in power, Mr Gingrich would oppose any government initiative that Obama is likely to proposed if he were "paying attention" to "the Blacks" - his most loyal voters and ardent defenders - because so many live vicariously through President Obama's daily schedule.
I reported earlier this week the words of Professional Progressive Political Preacher Rev Al Shaprton, who said on his radio show "The Black unemployment rate has ALWAYS been 2 to 3 times higher than the national average". The purpose of this statement was to "normalize" the condition of unemployment for Black people and thus - what should be an indictment against EFFECTIVENESS of the PROCESSES that Black people were compelled (by Sharpton and others) to invest in for our transformation - Sharpton told the caller that illegal immigrant workers are not the source of Black unemployment. In the world of "dark matter analysis" Shaprton and others should be made to prove that they are effective at developing our people with what they are selling to us. Instead they pretend to be INSIDE ADVOCATES for our people.
Newt Gingrich is merely an outsider, seeking a sales opportunity in kind.
He seeks to lure Black people with promises of jobs IF we invest our vote into his slot rather than the other. This is STILL a "consumer mentality".
The Failure Of The Black Rank & File To Protect Its Own Interests From Usurpation Both Inside And Out By Demanding Earnest Money Along The Way From Anyone That Has Received Its Investments
Neither Newt Gingrich nor most of the "rank & file" appreciate the TIME LINE. This represents the time period by which the "Black Community Development Consciousness" has been fused with the American Political Domain.
The masterpiece book by Manning Marable documents how the primary voice of this strategy debated against Malcolm X - the man who warned us. This voice was that of Bayard Rustin.
It should come as no surprise that the Black unemployment rate is the highest in the nation. This is due to the lack of ORGANIC DEVELOPMENT and INFRASTRUCTURE within the Black community.
We were compelled to fight for seats in government while certain operatives held on to economy theories that were incapable of retaining productive cities which they now controlled. It should be no surprise, for example, that the once powerful city of Detroit is now functionally solvent AND we see the embedded confidence men seeking to protect the leadership in power rather than standing in defense of the interests of the Black community. This would be evident had we heard their voices a long time ago, questioning the favorable leadership about their falling population rates and tax digest.
Sadly - the embedded confidence men would be talking to themselves.
They are an inseparable part of the machine that runs the city.
If Republican Newt Gingrich had any sense about the Black community he would see that there has been a shift in the rhetoric about the interests of Black people.
Today the Black Racial Services Machine talks about "high speed rail" to allow "Mission Accomplished city" dwellers to ride to work in the more conservative suburb. They call for "sharing of the poverty" among schools. As you read between the lines this is the new "racial diversity programs" that allow the "lucky Blacks" to sit next to kids with "Republican parents". The 2010 US Census showed us that a record number of Black people feel comfortable enough in their belief that a "racist" like Newt Gingrich is not going to fire bomb their house when they move into the White suburbs and the South, thanks to the Civil Rights protections that the Thomas Perez US Justice Department Civil Rights Division is forced to get a taller ladder to cherry pick indictments from at the margins because so much of the 'low hanging fruit" of such UNCHECKED violations have been mitigated.
Ironically in their "victory" at defending against the most blatant racial attacks on Black people the Civil Rights Pharisees and Black Racial Services Machine prove that they are not competent beyond their marginal points of mastery, to lead our people as we stand in the clearing from these attacks that have confined us for so long. They revert back to old ghosts because they understand that this provides them the tether that they need to keep our people "united" in the way that they desire.
Why is Newt Gingrich seeking for Black people to admit what there is NO COST that most want to recognize? They don't believe that their "Black Community Development Consciousness" has been misappropriated into the Democratic Party that has all of these holdings. They believe that AMERICA has denied them their increase per their denial of the implementation of "Social Justice Public Policy".
In their world the Black Community has sustained more loses over the past 50 years from:
- Cities that have suffered from "corporate abandonment"
- Black people locked up in the "New Jim Crow" Prison Industrial Complex
- Schools that are underfunded
- Banks that first denied loans and then came in and "tricked" Black people with subprime loans
How can you get a people to SEE the squandered potential when they are more prone to focus on their "favorable leaders" and the subject of "racism"??
