- The Government Or A "Race" Has Attacked His "Black American" Community
- The Government Or A "Race" Has Attacked AFRICA.......................
He Has BEEN TRAINED To FRAME Everything For His TEAM'S ADVANTAGE.
He Will Only Impugn The Motives Of EVERYONE NOT ON "HIS SIDE"
At a large gathering of my college friends (Black gathering) I employed my newly refined technique by which I told those who dared to try and get me to talk about POLITICS:
"I DO NOT GIVE MY OPINIONS ABOUT THE POPULARITY AND EFFECTIVENESS OF POLITICS. I ONLY TALK ABOUT THE CONDITION OF THE PEOPLE AND THE AMOUNT OF TIME, OPPORTUNITY COSTS AND SPIRITUAL CONNECTION THEY HAVE INVESTED INTO POLITICAL ADVOCACY. If you want to know sentiments MY President Trump, Congresswoman Maxine Waters or President Obama YOU should move on and ask someone else".
This had two effects, depending on the person's own bias and interest in politics
1) FOR THE BLACK FACED DEMOCRATIC OPERATIVE it drew curiosity about MY AGENDA. I was probed by rebuttal questions: (intended to keep the conversation on Trump, but merely asking me the same ultimate questions but in a different way)
- "So are you saying that TRUMP has no impact on your life?"
- "With all of this craziness going on with TRUMP, how can you not talk about him and what he is up to?"
2) FOR THE "FOLLOW THE LEADERS" (Low Information Voter) Types: (focus on the FACT THAT there is a negative opinion of Trump by Blacks as proof that Trump is a negative force for Black people)
- "I am tired of hearing about all of this politics too, but Trump keeps drawing everyone back in so you have to watch from being stabbed in the back"
- Secondary note: One person who told me that she listens to Tom Joyner - also made a negative grunt when anyone in the conversation mentioned the word "TRUMP"
SOME DAY IN THE FUTURE A "CULTURAL ARCHEOLOGIST" WILL STUDY THIS PRESENT DAY - WITH THE IDEA OF ATTEMPTING TO FIGURE OUT "WHAT HAPPENED IN THE PAST THAT CAUSED BLACK PEOPLE TO BE DELIVERED TO US IN THIS CONDITION?"
I am POSITIVE that the nuances of how LIVING HUMAN BEINGS interact with each other to AFFIRM MATTERS that are GERMANE to their PRESENT EXISTENCE but run COUNTER TO THE GOAL OF WHAT THEY CLAIM TO SEEK TO ATTAIN - is missed because these inferences can only be captured from experiential observations and not artifacts that the people have left behind.
