PSYCHOLOGY NOT POLITICS:
BUT when it comes to the function of "CULTURE" / "APPLIED RELIGIOUS FAITH" or even the "SPIRIT OF DISCERNMENT AND SELF PERPETUATION" - they NATIONALIZE this sentiment , UPON THE INDIVIDUAL PEOPLE who operate these GOVERNMENT and CHURCH institutions - pointing out THEIR FAILURES.
Gracie Bonds Staples article: CDC Rejects Funding For Fighting A Rapid Spike Black And Latino HIV Cases
Dear Mrs Staples - I would like to put forth YOUR OWN WORDS from the article and then ASK YOU about YOUR LINE OF ARGUMENT and WHY you chose to go THAT WAY:
From YOUR Article
And he’d like the rest of us, the taxpayers, to hold elected officials and public servants accountable for their actions.
What was the FIRST THING that I thought after reading your article, Mrs Staples:
IF the BLACK/HISPANIC HIV INFECTION RATES have "SPIKED" during the time in which "AIDS ATLANTA" was receiving FULL FUNDING.................then WHY are you focusing on the Center For Disease Control's COMMITMENT TO "BLACK /LATINO COMMUNITY HEALTH" but said NOTHING about the EFFECTIVENESS of "AIDS Atlanta" per the STATISTICS?
Instead you got around this logical question by pointing (constantly) to the fact that the CDC had PRAISED the work of "AIDS Atlanta", with YOU failing to use the factual data about the increase in HIV infections among Blacks and Hispanics in Atlanta as evidence of a PROBLEM LARGER than what the "Acclaim Given To 'AIDS Atlanta' by the CDC appears to cover.
I want you to stop right there, re-read what I have argued above and then ASK YOURSELF: "WHY wan't MY first commitment to the people behind the STATISTICS rather than the ACTIVIST ORGANIZATION who is doing the protesting and thus shifting the indictment to the CDC?
ACCOUNTABILITY FOR ACTIONS - HIV SPREADS VIA THE 'EXCHANGE OF BODY FLUIDS'. PERIOD!!
Mrs Staples I am going to try to avoid injecting my opinion into this analysis of you (ie: "People who think like you are part of the problem.") and instead focus upon the facts.
I stated before that on the matter of AIDS/HIV Journalistic Advocacy: "Cynthia Tucker used to do a quarterly bashing of (Black) church institutions about their homophobia".
In this line of reasoning instead of speaking about the MOTIVATIONS (psychological and otherwise) that would have people engaging in RISKY BEHAVIOR (sex and intravenous drug use) Ms Tucker instead USED this predicament to bash her RIGHT WING ENEMIES.
Ironically 'The Church' and other 'Legislative forces' that she and other Progressives wanted OUT OF HER BEDROOM (and off of her Uterus) was said to be the CAUSE of the unchecked spread of AIDS/HIV because in their HATRED FOR "THE SINNER" they refused to render aid. Of course HER Form of "AID" was NOT "Biblically / Morally based correction of behavior" but instead: "PILLS / PROPHYLACTICS AND PAMPHLETS" to act as analgesics, abstracting certain INTIMATE BEHAVIORS from the BODY FLUIDS of the one or more other persons engaged in the activity. (Condoms and clean needles).
(NOTE: This commenter on the article says that (D.L.) Reverend EDDIE LONG is the reason for the INCREASE IN HIV INFECTIONS in the Black Community. IN HER LINE OF REASONING "WITHDRAW OF PROTECTION equals PURPOSEFUL INFECTION. IF ONLY she said the very same thing about #Black Lives Matter walking past NINJAS WHO GOT THEMSELVES KILT until they found one killed by a WHITE COP.. THIS IRRATIONAL LINE OF THINKING is the reason for the perpetual crises that go unmitigated . )
WORKS (Activism) Is NOT Going To Bring 'Salvation On Earth' To Your Community.
ONLY 'Submission To A Greater/Worthy Purpose' Will Create The Individual Spiritual And Psychological Changes That, When Manifest In The World And Then Measured In Aggregate Will Show A 'Healthy Community'The Cost To The Black Community Borne From The 'Mentholated Black Media Pressgang"
LOOK FOR YOURSELF to find the EDITORIAL PRIORITIES of the "Mentholated Black Media Pressgang' (Go to the National Newspaper Publishers Association web site and click through on the links of their SYNDICATOR local newspapers)
They want THEIR 'FAVORED ELECTED OFFICIALS' to make A PRIORITY "BLACH COMMUNITY HEALTH AND WELLBEING"........................
BUT THEY THEMSELVES will NEVER allow this ORGANIC CAUSE to TRUMP their focus on PROGRESSIVE NATIONALIST POLITICAL OPPORTUNISM and the BLACK VALUABLES HARVESTING that must extract "BLACK COMMUNITY RAW MATERIALS (Black Conscious Awareness) for REFINEMENT and REPURPOSING in support of the "CONFEDERATION OF PROGRESSIVE FUNDAMENTALIST NATIONALIST forces".
As a result - THIS WILL BE THE LAST TIME that "The Atlanta Voice" mentions BLACK HIV Rates UNTIL an ACTIVIST does "Performance Art" and makes a news worthy event.
THIS BOOK THAT OFFER UP A 'PURPOSE' BASED UPON A 'SUBMISSIVE RELATIONSHIP TO 'GOD'S WILL' - WAS REJECTED AS ' HOMOPHOBIC' BY THIS SAME CORRUPT ESTABLISHMENT POWER - WHO NOW DAMN THE GOVERNMENT FOR NOT SUPPLYING ENOUGH FUNDING TO KEEP BLACK PEOPLE ALIVE.
THIS BOOK WAS WRITTEN BECAUSE A BLACK MALE PRAYER CIRCLE SAW TOO MANY BLACK PEOPLE GETTING MURDERED BY OTHER BLACKS
With the "Infected Population" as VICTIMS of "Hatred / Homophobia" and the "Presently Un-infected Population" of "Protected Classes" (Black, Homosexual, etc) being left without community attachment as the flood waters rose around them - ONLY THEN is Ms Tucker allowed to run her FRAUDULENT NARRATIVE in which "The Black Church's FAILURE TO RUN THE RESCUE OPERATIONS because of their BONDAGE TO BIGOTRY" as her own LOGICAL LEVIGATION out of the maze that she has constructed with every one of her articles, leading her followers to believe that SHE WAS ON COURSE TO 'THE PROGRESSIVE PROMISED LAND".
I see her spirit within YOU and it is equally as troubling.
In your line of thinking IS IT FAIR for someone to conclude that though "AIDS ATLANTA" is indeed doing GOOD WORDS - the DATA show that:
- (either) THEY ARE NOT EFFECTIVE
- (or) THEIR OPERATIONS ARE NOT 'TO THE SCALE OF THE PROBLEM'
....and thus the RATE IF EXPANSION has gone unchecked.
The larger problem is YOUR IDEOLOGY.
Look at the highlighted quote: "ELECTED OFFICIALS AND GOVERNMENT SERVANTS" / "ACCOUNTABLE"
With the fact that there are MORE INDIVIDUAL ACTS OF RISKY BEHAVIOR than ANY GOVERNMENT will EVER be able to "LOVINGLY REGULATE" (with the use of information and condoms and clean needles) MY REBUTTAL TO YOUR LINE OF THINKING IS:
At what point do YOU do a "Self Breast Exam Of YOUR ASSUMPTIONS" and conclude that THE MOLESTATION OF THE "COMMON CULTURE" and the "COMMUNITY BASED INSTITUTIONS", which have been gutted from their original purpose and are now used as POLITICAL STEPPING STONES to compel people to unite in the LARGER EXTERNAL FACING POLITICAL FIGHT between the "Two Dung Producing Party Animals" IS THE REAL CAUSE of why so many things that are SAID TO BE IMPORTANT TO 'CONTAINERIZED BLACK AMERICANS' - are instead allowed to go UNMITIGATED - as instead we see MASS DEPRESSION AND EXUBERANCE over ELECTION RESULTS rather than HIV TEST RESULTS
