Less than a month ago Rep Jesse Jackson Jr (D-IL) won the "Black Community General Election" and is heard telling the congregation all that things that"Democrats"stand for.
When he said "Democrats Stand For Safe Communities" the crowd applauded in affirmation of his words.
To my knowledge - there was no member of the "Black Press" who listened in on these words and bothered to question the veracity of the statements. The congregation approved per their applause and this is all that matters to those who drive for POPULARITY.
|The True Up From The Streets||Chicago Tribune - Some communities in Chicago experience a 60% increase in homicides - including the Englewood section.
When the consciousness of the people - as measured by their applause, is misaligned from their reality - it is time to look past the "Embedded Confidence Man" on the stage that is provoking them to clap - per his words - and instead go into the crowd and begin to psychoanalyze the congregants as we seek to understand the source of their cognitive disassociation.
The same Black Progressive Press that was heard last week questioning Mitt Romney's sanity regarding his claim that 92% of the people who were unemployed under Obama were women have no interest in checking the people who ACTUALLY GET BLACK PEOPLE TO INVEST IN THEIR CAUSE. This is yet another example of the loosely coupled machine that works for the same end.
It seems that the goal is to receive "the investment" from our community rather than the promised fix that it was to produce.
