Constructive Feedback University: RACE IN ATLANTA. Somewhere Between The 'Diversity Marketing' Of The AJC And The 'Fear Of Loss Of White Majority' By SBPL IS THE TRUTH
As I think of it - It is for the best that "SBPDL" got their response to the "AJC's 'Race Series' " out for me to read before I was able to respond to the AJC's account.
Though the AJC seeded the discussion on 'The Changing Face Of Metro Atlanta" (sparked by the FICTIONAL movie 'Get Out' - which should tell you something about their own motivations) they should be considered with (ONLY) equal footing in the conversation as is "Stuff Black People Don't Like", the difference only being the QUANTITY of individuals in each organization providing their opinions for the content.
While "SBPDL" has a clear malicious intent against Black people - the type of maliciousness provided (in net) by the AJC is that they are UNWILLING TO TELL THE TRUTH about the portion of problems suffered by Black people in Metro Atlanta of TO-DAMNED-DAY that is directly correlated to having "FRAUDULENT REVENGE / PROGRESSIVE POLITICAL OPPORTUNISM SCHEMES - dressed up as 'BLACK / PROGRESSIVE Political Expansion And PROTECTION OF THEIR EXISTING BASE" - which ultimately eschews "COMMUNITY GOOD GOVERNANCE PRACTICES " for the sake of engineered terms like DIVERSITY.
In reading all of the deposits to the conversation on "Race" provided by the AJC my rebuttal (or amplification of the story): DEAR AJC - how about writing another edition of the series FROM THE EYES OF THE "UNDERDEVELOPED BLACK PEOPLE IN THE MISSION ACCOMPLISHED ZONES - whose PROGRESSIVE LEADERS are the ones still stuck in SELMA and on AUBURN AVENUE, still believing that 'Sweet Auburn' will come back to life IF they keep filling their gas powered lamp up with vapors of 'Dr King'.
The AJC's article was PACKED with every RACIST STEREOTYPE about "Cobb County" and so called "White Christian Conservatives" - but was missing any mention of "ORGANIC COMPETENCY DEVELOPMENT FOR BLACK PEOPLE" who kept the faith and INVESTED IN JOHN LEWIS - just to name a few of the local leaders who are out of time synch.
For its part - "Stuff Black People Don't Like's" submission PROVED THE AJC CORRECT about "White Right Wing Bigotry" - enumerated straight on RACE.
If you notice it was the RACIAL HEADCOUNT MAPS that were most important to SBPDL. For the stereotyped WHITES in the article their fear was about "Crime Riding To Town On MARTA In Black Face" and "The Legal Status Of The Wave Of Hispanic Immigrants" - whose FOOD CULTURE is changing the County from "Brunswick Stew" to "Enchiladas and Salsa".
THE AJC ARTICLE CONFIRMED TWO MAJOR CLAIMS MADE BY THIS BLOG
Notice the focus on BLACK MIGRANTS INTO ATLANTA FROM CALIFORNIA.
I maintain that most of these people chose their area for settlement the VERY SAME WAY THAT 'WHITE FOLKS DO' - Zillow and Realtor.com - with a prime emphasis on THE QUALITY OF THE SCHOOL SYSTEMS and the HOME VALUES (retention of property values). PERIOD!!
I have listened to many "Just Between Us Black Folks" conversations to realize that BLACK PEOPLE are as worried about the consequences of living near "GHETTO CONDITIONS" as WHITE PEOPLE are stereotyped as fearing.
(Ironically as I type this - there are more people who will believe that I am "DEFENDING WHITE RIGHT WING RACISTS with my commentary than they'll admit that BLACK PEOPLE ARE 100% EQUAL in our ability to hold NEGATIVE THOUGHTS - even against fellow Blacks.
My ONLY agenda [ultimately] is to EXPOSE THE FRAUD of 'Slavery Injury Used For Present Day Progressive Nationalism AT THE EXPENSE OF ORGANIC COMPETENCY DEVELOPMENT For Black People Through The Community INSTITUTIONS That Black People Must Govern to produce the desired outcomes. PERIOD.)
Secondly the AJC IS NOT going to focus on the "Underdeveloped Blacks" in the zones that 'The NAACP and Civil Rights Pharisees' are NEVER OFFENDED OVER - (their existing base of land) because they are focused on Progressive Nationalist expansion into these LILY WHITE ZONES - for POLITICAL purposes.
IF THE AJC wanted a "Pulitzer Prize" AND to reignite the "Civil Rights Protests Outside Of The AJC" that were evident during the 1980's because of "racist reporting against Black elected officials" then they should break ranks with conventional wisdom and argue that in the areas where the Marquee Black Elected Officials Hold Sway - WE CAN NO LONGER INCLUDE 'THE POWERFUL, WEALTHY AND 'WELL TRAVELED' BLACKS' in the term "BLAMING THE VICTIMS" for they are the INVESTMENT ADVISERS FOR 'THE VICTIMS'.
It is the CONDITION OF GROWTH in the form of 'Return On INVESTED BLACK VALUABLES' by which these Black Progressive Leaders must be judged.
Yet as we seen continually covered in the AJC - the continued protests in the Gwinnett County Commission against Commissioner Tommy Hunter who called the "CIVIL RIGHTS JESUS" as "Racist Pig" : there is STILL a BIFURCATED SET OF EXPECTATIONS OF "THE POWERFUL - ELECTED LEADERSHIP" with regards - NOT OF RACE - but their importance in the facilitation of THE PROGRESSIVE NATIONALIST AGENDA - which is fighting against the "WHITE CHRISTIAN CONSERVATIVE".
SHOW ME ONE "AJC Opinion Writer" (including Gracie Bond Staples) who looks toward GWINNETT COUNTY and tells the 'GWINNETT DEMOCRATIC PARTY AND THE NAACP": "LOOK you have more DAMNING PROBLEMS festering in your county than your OFFENSE over Tommy Hunters comments about John Lewis INDICATE about your MENTAL SERIOUSNESS and qualifications to MANAGE THESE PROBLEMS"?
The way it works - Since THEIR IS a BIFURCATED SET OF RACIAL EXPECTATIONS - the POLITICAL CONFIDENCE MEN are able to "Bust The Knee Caps" down low - while the "Elite Progressives", feigning unawareness about what is going on - can PLAY the "High Intellectual Game".
The AJC should FORCE their lead Progressive mind - Jay Bookman to answer the question: "Do YOU Believe That The Continuing Protests In Gwinnett County Against The Words Of Tommy Hunter Is Evidence Of EFFECTIVE GOVERNANCE And If SO - Would You Support The Same Protests Against Congresswoman Maxine Waters Who THESE VERY SAME GWINNETT PROTESTERS Are PLEASED When SHE Slanders President Trump With Even More Derision? Will YOU Accept That The Poverty In Her California 43rd District That Remains - Is Evidence That Certain POOR PEOPLE Would Rather Have Their Elected Leadership Fight Their White Right Wing Enemies More Than They Care About Becoming UNPOOR? What Role Do YOU PLAY In Facilitating This?"
It is clear: IF indeed there are WHITE RIGHT WING BIGOTS who are IGNORANT (and of course this is so) then there are PROGRESSIVE NATIONALISTS who are EQUALLY BIGOTED and they TOO use the "RACIAL PROTECTION RACKET" in order to advance PROGRESSIVE NATIONALISM at the expense of the USEFUL IDIOTS who go along with the fraud scheme.
The Missing "3,000 Pound - Embedded Black Fox Confidence Man In The Room"
Again - this "Race Series" in the AJC will have additional episodes.
IF the AJC were HONEST they would start to CHECK the antics of "The Civil Rights Pharisees".
On the face they CLAIM that they are going into these formerly "LILY WHITE BASTIONS" and seeking to reconcile the gap between the ELECTED OFFICIALS (which remain majority White) and the NEW DIVERSE POPULATION.
I can tell you from first hand experience in visiting churches in diversifying zones: what once was a 'lily White church', becomes 'diverse' but the ministerial staff (more clearly the core leadership) remains WHITE - just as one claims with politics.
The point that the Civil Rights Pharisees refuse to admit is that the BLACK PEOPLE WENT TO THE 'CHURCH' because they LIKED the STRUCTURE and what was being OFFERED.
Then the NAACP comes in - sees the OPTICS OF RACE and then uses the COURT SYSTEM and "Voting Rights Act" to force the issue about "race" - but they are NEVER AROUND to stand and account when the STRUCTURE that was once attractive to "Black Flight Progressives" is dismantled by an endless series of "Theoretical SOCIAL JUSTICE Legislation" (the real "Reactionary Politics") only to produce the very environment that the BLACK FLIGHT PROGRESSIVES moved away from before, despite their POLITICAL VICTORIES in imposing Progressive Public Policies of the past.
No doubt the AJC will soon insert the "Legacy Of Slavery And Jim Crow" as they explain the INJURY suffered by Black people from the past. The real question is: "Will the AJC break ranks and state, unapologetically: IF CONGRESSMAN JOHN LEWIS CAN HAVE A US NAVY WARSHIP NAMED AFTER HIM AND STAY SILENT AS A 'BLACK PRESIDENT' RAN A COUP IN AN AFRICAN NATION.....................THEN WE MUST, AS HARD AS IT IS FOR US TO ACCEPT,.....CONCLUDE THAT THERE ARE MORE FORCES DIVERTING THE UPLIFT OF UNDERDEVELOPED BLACK AMERICANS AWAY FROM THEIR THRUSTERS THAN THERE IS 'ACTIVE, UNCHECKED WHITE SUPREMACY HOLDING THEM DOWN'
