Political operatives find an elected official's birth certificate NOT TO challenge his "US Citizenship" but to make note that his mother listed herself as WHITE, despite the candidate's claim that his mother was "a high yella Black woman".
From The Article:
|“Who really gives a care right now?,” Clarke told Langton. “My opponents are so desperate they can’t attack me based on what we’re doing, based on my record, so they’re going after my poor deceased parents who have been dead for 30 years.”
Opponents have pointed out that Clarke’s mother’s death certificate lists her race as white, though Clarke describes himself as “multiracial” with a light-skinned black mother and Indian father.
Clarke said about his mother’s death certificate: “That’s the way it is, sometimes people viewed light-skinned black folks as being white.”
Beyond that, he said his mother’s race shouldn’t matter. And he blamed racial divides for the disastrous state of Detroit. “Our region has been so divided based on race it’s actually undercut our economic growth,” Clarke said. “The only reason we’re the only metro area in the country without mass transit is these politicians want to play race all the time. The costs have been enormous on us.”
He went on to say racism has stopped business owners and new residents from coming to Detroit, where more than 80 percent of residents are black. “When people believe they’re going to be hassled because of who they are as a person they don’t want to live in that community,” the congressman said. “It’s overall, it’s part of the whole equation when you look at where to live.
Nobody wants to live in a neighborhood where they feel their kids are going to get hassled and threatened and jeered. No employer wants to do that either.” He said his role as a multiracial candidate is to bring all sides together. He said his mother was Episcopalian, his father a Muslim, and he’s a Roman Catholic. “You know what that is? Typical American family. We’re all diverse,” Clarke said. He added: “You want to talk about race mattering? It does matter. We have young black kids who can’t read who are going to prison in droves, costing us billions of dollars, wasting these young men’s lives and depressing our economy, robbing us of their contributions. That’s what we need to focus on.” “… Don’t cheapen people like that, that’s been the problem in metro Detroit, we’ve appealed based on the worst of people and look what’s happened to our city — look at it … It’s because of this kind of ignorant perspective. We need to be focusing on serving and helping people.”
THEY ARE NOT GOING TO STOP!!!!!
It doesn't matter how much the city of Detroit erodes in stature, there are some people who can't get beyond the CONSCIOUSNESS upon which they have survived upon up to this point.
Based upon my experience living in Metro Atlanta I have noticed..............
- When there is an Inter-Party political battle (with a White Republican opponent) - RACISM is the center-piece of their campaign
- When there is an Intra-Party political battle (with a White opponent) - the White Democrat is "Republicanized"
- When there is an Intra-Party political battle (with a light skinned opponent) - ie Maynard Jackson or Bill Campbell - "Light skinned privilege" creeps into the debate among two or more liberal Democrats
My previous assumptions that ISOLATION, in which they are the ones with their "finger prints on the steering wheels" would prove to the voters that they are the problem - DOES NOT WORK. Even as the broken glass from the auto wreck is at their feet - they are going to "Expand the scope of the indictment", compelling their loyal followers to look outward for the source of the damage.
Finally I learned: THE PROBLEM IS NOT WITH THE "EMBEDDED CONFIDENCE MEN" (the politicians). The problem resides with the CONSTITUENTS that accept this FOOLISHNESS. The cost of them going along with it all is the damaged "Mission Accomplished Zone" left in their wake. The voting populace are necessary complicit operatives in their own ultimate fate.
For the "Too Black Too Strong" forces - the fact that a "White Man Who Is Passing" can't be truthful about his 'BLACKNESS' is a greater indictment than the entire machine in Detroit that has wrecked the city. They understand that with Hanson Clarke's "Whiteness", when the cards are on the table and they need a strong, outraged 'Black voice' to tell those Wall Street Bankers and those White Conservative State Republicans that "WE ARE NOT GOING TO ALLOW YOU ALL TO STEAL AWAY THE LARGEST BLACK RUN CITY OUTSIDE OF AFRICA!!!!" that Rep Clarke might allow his "White side" to fold too quickly, rather than expressing his "Black Loyalty".
All along - these EMBEDDED CONFIDENCE MEN know that the main thing keeping themselves from being indicted BY BLACK PEOPLE for the damage done to BLACK PEOPLE - is the fact that they are the one's running the CONFIDENCE SCHEME that defines who is Black.
Notice the absence of the NAACP Of Detroit and Joe Madison on the matter of Detroit when the "clients begin to take over the asylum" as the voices of leadership and rebuke get silent.
