A "Racially Diverse" Copy Desk AND "Black Owned Press" Should NOT Be Mistaken For News Coverage And "Muckraking" That Is An Accurate Model Of The TRUTH About The Black Community And The Larger World
The Black Press: The #1 Black Institutional Governance FAILING Of Our Time
The forces that know human psychology, group behavior and world history understand that THE PRESS "can start a revolution" or can "lull the masses into CONSUMER CONTENTMENT", oblivious to the world around them.
After being denied placement in "the mainstream press" (print, radio and television) - the 1960's style phenomenon of "Look MOM!! There is a Black person on television" - has been usurped as the forces that are EMPLOYING "Black Voices" and/or using 'Black owned media' to propagandize an agenda - understand that "MODERN HISTORIANS THAT INCESSANTLY REPEAT A NARRATIVE" are 100% EQUAL to the "American Historians" who told us about "The Indians", "The Spanish Explorers" and "The Pilgrims"
The Evidence Of REGULATORY CAPTURE Of "The Black Community Governance Culture" By The "Malcolm X Political Football Game"
The fact that "The Nation Of Islam" and "Johnson Publishing" are both headquartered in Chicago Illinois and have the bulk of their content produced and edited by people who are residents of the greater Chicago area is merely a consequence of history.
All is well with this "self-chummed" construct because the forces that would normally seek to debunk this rationale have a vested interest in marketing it to the Black masses. They are interested in harvesting their VOTES and LOYALTIES - not in accuracy and discipline in keeping "the Black Consciousness" out of "The Malcolm X Political Football game".
Why Did They Vacate The Murders In Chicago (And Gary) For A Trip To Sanford FL, Stopping By Jacksonville And Macon Georgia Along The Way?
The fact that both of them chose to look past the shamefully high Black homicide rates in their city from 2012 as they failed to make a link to the larger pattern of Black homicide victimization rates in other cities around the nation - is NO MISTAKE.
They both promoted Trayvon Martin's killing in 2012 as "THE Murder" of a Black person that is emblematic of "The Black Struggle" - despite the fact that a "favorable President" sits in the White House and enjoys a large network of favorable Progressives that received "The Black Vote" in 2012 and for the last 50 years prior.
Despite the fact that Johnson Publishing, "The Nation Of Islam" and the "paid Blacks" of MSNBC all work for different publishing companies, each with divergence in "ownership model" and purpose - there was some force that is resident in their consciousness that promoted "Trayvon Martin" (and later Jordan Russell Davis) to the cover of their magazines - while the estimated 7,000 other Black homicide victims for 2012 - will never get such a prime showing.
My frustration as I do my longitudinal study of this effect is that we are not going to see any of the "industry insiders" (Black or White) unilaterally acknowledging this pattern and calling out the irony, fraud and most importantly the OPPORTUNITY COSTS of this type of slanted propaganda journalism.
THE OPPORTUNITY COSTS = "The Smell of the 'Decaying Strange Fruit' That Goes Unattended To Within The Black Community"
WHY do they do it?
The present prevailing Black Consciousness understands that "Black Congregational Unity" - the "Struggle Motion" is the most effective means of obtaining POWER and LOYALTY among Black people.
It is not important that you "develop" Black people - per a measure of the increase in "organic competencies" - that would come from - more Black people who have acquired technical skills that would allow them to command more more and thus live a better lifestyle Or more "Black community professional servants" that have matriculated through the institutions in our community and have returned to provide the "professional services" (medical, accounting, managerial skills) that, when measured would show a higher level of wealth that is dispersed at the periphery.
Those who ultimately have failed to develop the "governance culture" within the Black community understand that the only thing they need to do retain the confidence of the Black community is to control the "Black Conscious Attention Span". In the world of "racial and ideological tribalism" the most surefire means of accomplishing the above is to flood the "Black media channels" with news of
the latest proof that "nothing has changed in this RACIST nation. IF we do not stand behind our Black Progressive leadership - the WHITE RACIST RIGHT-WING KILLER will return to doing what he has been doing since we were brought her in CHAINS........Are YOU foolish enough to really think that a RACIST can change in 30 years?"
What is set up as a "racial indictment" for the sake of "Congregation Loyalties" fails to acknowledge the White allies in the "Diverse Progressive Joint Venture". When this is factored in we see, in fact, that the Black Progressive operative is NOT talking about "White people" - they are talking about 'RIGHT-WING White people". If you fail to properly qualify their indictments and put a face on WHO they are talking about then the SPEAKER won't reveal himself to you despite the vibrations of your ear drums.
The "Black Racial Services Machines", despite what you assume of my views, is not the "resident evil" within the Black community. They suffer from the very same human issues that "Citibank" suffers from: As EQUAL HUMAN BEINGS, if they are not regulated, they are going to ultimately act in their own selfish interests rather than for the benefit of the people en masse.
Credit should be given to the "Black Racial Services Machine" - they know how Black people think. I have honestly been surprised at the adeptness they have displayed in their knowledge of how the "Historian's Narrative" - even when provided to an event that happened "right before our eyes" yesterday, can compel a "People" who have bigotry, hatred and the spirit of opportunism in their hearts to operate in aggregate AGAINST THEIR OWN INTERESTS.
Most people refer to the "popular sentiment" of Black people as their proof of what "The Black Permanent Interests Are". Yet these are the very same people who you might hear say: "If White people today were allowed to vote on 'Slavery' - Black people would be back in chains". The problem is that they can't see that they are little different than "The White man" in their own capacity to use "popularism" (I was told that I am abusing the word 'populism" so I will make up my own word).
Thus we have our problem.
As long as the Black community never looks toward the "ESTABLISHMENT POWER" that they have erected over the "Mission Accomplished Zones" to actually DELIVER for them in an organic fashion but instead to be used as their "vehicle for STRUGGLE" against the Right-Wing External Enemy - we are going to have these "forest fires" continuing to blaze within our community (education challenges, crime, squandered human resource development).
You cannot have the "Policy Makers", the executives and the "auditors" all working on the same team of conspiracy.
This is accomplished within the Black Community by the "confidence scheme" of generating "Congregational Unity" by standing up the EXTERNAL WHITE RIGHT WING for us to shadow box against:
- The Police (even when the Police chief and mayor are Black)
- The State Republicans
- The Wall Street Bankers (even though you lobbied to have diversity salesmen peddling the Municipal bonds that generated the debt)
- The Black Republicans who are in bed with the enemy
After having "The Blacks" assume this defensive position - its no wonder that so many of our people are compelled to not call out the "serial killings" that take place - for the desire to avoid HURTING THE TEAM.
WHAT IS THIS TEAM PLAYING TO ACCOMPLISH?
CERTAINLY it is NOT to develop the Black community.
