(I'll Be Right Back)
Here it is. "Bill Clinton And Black America" By DeWayne Wickham.
On my book shelf in my basement, sandwiched between: "Nigger - The Strange Career Of A Troublesome Word" by Randal Kennedy and "The Death Of The West" By Patrick J. Buchanan.
My biggest pet peeve with Black Progressive journalists is when they can't see themselves in the target of indictments that they serve up to their loyal readers.
In their view - after more than 40 years of stock piling the monopoly balance of the "Black Community's Development Consciousness And Hopes" - the "Negro Politician" that dares to break ranks as he questions the directions is called out for his "disloyalty" by the "Congregational Unity Enforcers" in the Black press.
Yet these same propagandists who are guilty of selling the Black community a transactional feeding of "self-chum", with the appropriate soul food seasoning in line with their knowledge of our preferences - are seen slapping themselves on the back because they deem themselves successful at providing the Black community with "Universal Health Care" that will treat our hypertension that was triggered by the chum they fed to us and its high saline content.
Despite the tragic collapse of Detroit and Newark.
Despite the loss of accreditation of schools in Philly, Clayton County Georgia and, perish the thought - the news that the School District of Memphis, made famous during the battle over school busing, has handed in its operating charter back to the state of Tennessee, so that it could be merged into the smaller, but majority White "Shelby County School System" so that the Black children who were provided with "Social Justice access" to any school in Memphis - could now receive a quality education at the hands of the Shelby County School system..........................
No "Negro Who Stayed Loyal To The Struggle" has been called out as a TRAITOR TO THE BLACK RACE - by DeWayne Wickham nor any other Negro Journalist who uses his "white space", granted to them by the blessings of his corporate owned media organization to broadcast the sound of their progressive flute to provide the needed synchronization for their followers to stay focused upon the struggle.
With a head count of 10,000 Elected Negros (or 21,000 - depending on if the various appointed officials are including) - WHY is there such a propensity by journalistic operatives like DeWayne Wickham to operate as enforcers?
More to the point - are you SATISFIED that the Black Community is being DEVELOPED with ORGANIC COMPETENCIES, in line with the present POWER that the machine that you advocate for now has? Or are you content with us being net CONSUMERS? Our loyalties on lock?
I suspect that from the vantage point of Mr Wickham, a greater sin than the one that is cast by convincing millions of Black people, over many decades to fuse their "Black Community Development Hopes" with a party and ideology, using the cogs in the "Black Racial Services Machine" to convince them of the damage that the team would suffer if we dare to ask for a "Black Community 401K statement" to see evidence of a RETURN ON OUR INVESTMENTS - is for one of the star players on the team to SWITCH sides, and being to line up on the line of scrimmage, assisting the other side to move the ball.
Tell me, Mr Wickham - What happens when the other team seeks to leave your playing field and allow you to have the run of your own field? Does what you are pushing upon "your team" provide them with the "ORGANIC COMPETENCIES" to continue play on their own? Or are you among the "colored commentators" crying foul, as you chase after this other team, demanding that they allow you to play against them at the new stadium with sky boxes that they used municipal bonds to pay for its construction?
I told you, Mr Davis - you made a mistake becoming a Republican.
Now - instead of the "LampBlacked Yellow Jouranlist Press" being forced to LOOK at the level of "organic development" of our people after so many years of investments, being forced to ask questions - as a means of retaining their credibility - they only need to focus on YOU - the "Black Republican" as they remain fully confidence that their base of readers will be satisfied in reading about "The One Negro That Got Away, having switched sides", rather than the large pack of others with sound job security - regardless of the results they tender - as long as they remain "Progressive".
