Over the weekend two Black Progressive Fundamentalists over on the Booker Rising blog have done what many others have attempted to do with me: FIGURE OUT WHO'S PAYROLL I am on based on my views and my (apparent) attacks on Black Progressives and Civil Rights Pharisees.
It is time for me to come clean.
I Am The First Paid Black Consultant To The Korean "Black Business" Owners Association.
For the past 5 years I have been providing Korean retail strategists with inside information on how to increase their sales to Black people. They knew that Black people in our present prevailing consciousness have a great affinity to "Bread And Circuses". My job was to fine tune their outreach to "The Blacks".
I never accepted any cash during my engagement.
I realized that an unacceptable amount of money that was in the possession of Black people's wallets and purses were going to the purchase of material items that filled a void in their self-worth. Hair, jewelry, clothing, vehicles and other material items are purchased to project a statement to others.
I told them that I would help them - as long as they paid triple the local sales taxes to the government in order to capture the money spent frivolously so that it could be put to work for the benefit of the commonwealth. In Fulton County GA where the sales tax is 6% the Korean Black Business Owners Association was mandated to pay the county 18% for each sale. This, I hoped would offset the losses to the county that came from Black people demanding reassessments of their home values in order to get property taxes down. The school budget cuts of today are a direct result of the claimed "civil rights violations" that some people said were the case as their home valuation were kept artificially high and they were forced to pay more in taxes
THINGS HAVE GONE TOO FAR, BEYOND MY WILDEST DREAMS.
As I drove past the Greenbriar Mall today I saw my work on full display.
I had no idea that the Koreans would post a "Sambo-ette" picture on the side of their building - luring more Black people in to purchase "virgin human hair".
I had no idea that this would not trigger a protest by the "Civil Rights Pharisees".
I AM TO BLAME FOR THIS. I gave the Koreans this idea about how to take the incremental approach toward appealing to the Black psyche and they crossed the line.
I told them to avoid sensitive "Slavery references" but they named their store "BEAUTY MASTER".
I told them to play on themes like "EQUALITY" and "SOCIAL JUSTICE". This is what Black people like to hear in the name of empowerment.
I had NO IDEA that they would come out with a product line of "EQUALITY HAIR"!!!!
They were going to call the packets of hair shaved from the heads of Indian girls: "Genetic Physical Attribute Deficiency Justice - Lolo Hair".
I protested because they did not obtain sufficient licensing rights from LoLo Jones. They would be sued if they went ahead with this branding.
To the two Black Progressive Fundamentalists that have called me out: THANK YOU!!!
You pulled my chain. I crossed the line. I used my people all for the lust of money.
I will now CHANGE.
