I have no problem with Black Progressives.
My problem is with CORRUPTION fronting as "Blackness".
When a swarm of like-minded people converge to (attempt to) define the rules, the enforcement, the judgement, proving that they have no intention of addressing the full compliment of forces that bear down upon an object THIS SWARM needs to be confronted lest they continue on unchallenged. They will use their coalition of media operatives to convince the congregation that it was the "other bastards" that are the cause of their problems, assuring them that they have a friend who is always struggling for their best interests in the fight.
In as much as I sense the lack of redeeming qualities among this group of co-conspiring individuals I will continue to attack them as the "Street Pirate" attacks our community. IF this "would would be pillar of our community is an otherwise normal young male but for the end of the stick that society has given him and thus your goal is to change society by first changing him then view my angle of attack on the "Black Racial Services Machine" in the same manner. Absent the numbers to change the corrupt scheme that is becoming increasingly blatant - I turn to this disposition out of frustration.
It is not me who has "contempt for Black people" - the forces that collect the "Black Community Development Consciousness" and sell it for cheap are the ones that show what is inside of their hearts. Do not mistake their popularity among the people as proof of their good intentions. The people in their present consciousness that is underdeveloped from what they need to prosper as a community have allowed this show to continue far beyond the point of permissibly.
The Unmitigated Problems Detail A Governance Problem Within The Black Community
The two issues covered by "Tell Me More" -
- The Impact Of Fatherlessness On Black Girls
- The Carnage That Is Taking Place Within The Black Community
come at a time when I was about to start a countdown to "Father's Day 2012".
From previous experience I noted that the Thursday and Friday prior to this annual holiday and the Monday afterward expose some sensitive wounds within the Black community as heard on "Black-wing Grievance Talk Radio". Gone is the typical ideological / political positioning and obfuscation. What is revealed is a large group of wounded individuals that have built up scar tissue to cover over the pain.
When you understand that much of the theatrics that front as "Black Political And Social Analysis" is really INCOMPETENCE at addressing the core issues within Black America that is causing our people so much pain the only rational conclusion is to note that choice to obfuscate our attention away from these structural problems for the sake of "Present Unity" merely assures that it will lurk in an unmitigated state for our offspring to suffer from.
When we see anger over the attempts by these forces that propagate information upon our community for their theft of our consciousness then our people will being the walk down the path of resolution.
A few weeks ago the debate over "Gay Marriage" was not one of "Marriage Equality" on the one side nor "Homophobia" (I reject this as a manufactured word).
The issue at hand is one of COMPETENCY in fielding a holistic order of social governance that ultimately produces FAVORABLE OUTCOMES among the maximum amount of people.
Of course the pain of fatherlessness that was expressed by the guests on "Tell Me More" is the residue of a body of choices made by the Black community and America at large. As the Black men and women involved in the procreation and rearing of the children that they produced their decisions, as guided by the larger sea of cultural and societal enforcements do produce distinct outcomes that may or may not be in line with our stated goals as a community.
Worse, as special interest groups play on the unconsciousness among the larger society they understand that popularity trumps effective outcomes.
We are now at the point of being forced to reappraise the VALUE of the outcomes that we focus upon. In economic terms we talk about the health of the "large middle class" and how it is shrinking. When it comes to enforcing the body of standards that protect the Traditional Black Family - those who are unwilling to yield dismiss the "Ozzie and Harriett" dream that never was.
I suspect that when they are given the hard choice - it is them who are unwilling to yield their selfish interests to the best interests of the group. Why is it only those who purse their economic selfish interests targets of shaming?
It is only when they represent themselves as projecting the best interests of the Black community that they should be inspected to affirm that they are not selling "cognac" that was made from grapes grown in California.
The lack of institutional governance within our communities allows those who I call "The Embedded Confidence Men" to continue to focus upon issues that satisfy our present consciousness while failing to grow our people into the governors of our community.
(Note: The on computer that is recording "Black Wing Talk Radio" is now capturing a conversation of a 'Birther Named Donald Trump'. This appears to be more important than the NY Times story about Obama's Kill List or the news about the violent weekend in Chicago. This is a perfect example of how the Right Wing OWNS the Black Community's Attention Span. Our political lusts trumps the interest in regulating what we have control over that is most impactful to us.)
