First the primary reference - Malcolm X:
The white liberal differs from the white conservative only in one way: the liberal is more deceitful than the conservative. The liberal is more hypocritical than the conservative.
Both want power, but the white liberal is the one who has perfected the art of posing as the Negro's friend and benefactor; and by winning the friendship, allegiance, and support of the Negro, the white liberal is able to use the Negro as a pawn or tool in this political "football game" that is constantly raging between the white liberals and white conservatives.
Politically the American Negro is nothing but a football and the white liberals control this mentally dead ball through tricks of tokenism: false promises of integration and civil rights. In this profitable game of deceiving and exploiting the politics of the American Negro, those white liberals have the willing cooperation of the Negro civil rights leaders. These "leaders" sell out our people for just a few crumbs of token recognition and token gains. These "leaders" are satisfied with token victories and token progress because they themselves are nothing but token leaders.
According to a New York Herald-Tribune editorial (dated February 5,1960), out of eleven million qualified Negro voters, only 2,700,000 actually took time to vote. This means that, roughly speaking, only three million of the eleven million Negroes who are qualified to vote actually take an active part. The remaining eight million remain voluntarily inactive ... and yet this small (three million) minority of Negro voters hold the decisive edge in determining who will be the next President.
Let us examine briefly some of the tricky strategy used by white liberals to harness and exploit the political energies of the Negro.
The crooked politicians in Washington, D.C., purposely make a big noise over the proposed civil rights legislation. By blowing up the civil rights issue they skillfully add false importance to the Negro civil rights "leaders." Once the image of these Negro civil rights "leaders" has been blown up way beyond its proper proportion, these same Negro civil rights "leaders" are then used by white liberals to influence and control the Negro voters, all for the benefit of the white politicians who pose as liberals, who pose as friends of the Negro.
The white conservatives aren't friends of the Negro either, but they at least don't try to hide it. They are like wolves; they show their teeth in a snarl that keeps the Negro always aware of where he stands with them. But the white liberals are foxes, who also show their teeth to the Negro but pretend that they are smiling. The white liberals are more dangerous than the conservatives; they lure the Negro, and as the Negro runs from the growling wolf, he flees into the open jaws of the "smiling" fox.
The job of the Negro civil rights leader is to make the Negro forget that the wolf and the fox both belong to the (same) family. Both are canines; and no matter which one of them the Negro places his trust in, he never ends up in the White House, but always in the dog house.
The white liberals control the Negro and the Negro vote by controlling the Negro civil rights leaders. As long as they control the Negro civil rights leaders, they can also control and contain the Negro's struggle, and they can control the Negro's so-called revolt.
The Negro "revolution" is controlled by these foxy white liberals, by the government itself. But the black revolution is controlled only by God.
Words said in 1964 are EVEN MORE TRUE in the year 2008 as the Political Machine that the White Liberal and his Black Quasi-Socialist Progressive-Fundamentalist Racism Chaser, Black operative has grown more powerful over the Black community than ever before.
The purpose of this "Snarling Fox" Award is to highlight those people who enjoy "popularity" WITHIN the Black community but who have used this relationship to serve as a net harm or cancer to the community by unleashing thoughts, dependencies or complacency into the common psyche of the Black community which was sold as SHORT TERM benefit but has translated into LONG TERM HARM.
Let's be clear. I do not intend to use this award as "slander" upon anyone. Unlike some other awards that I have in mind - my goal is NOT to cajole any Black people into unifying behind the ideology that I seek for them to do so, lest they be called a "Law Jockey". This is nothing more than "enforced unity" where you either agree with the popular notions or you get castigated.
Instead I will focus upon the COMMON BEST INTERESTS that most Blacks can agree to and then do analysis of this person's policies and make the determination of if indeed Black people are brought closer to these common goals or if we are only pacified while remaining in place. From my perspective I am only HOLDING UP A MIRROR TO THE FACE OF BLACK AMERICA AND ASKING THE INDIVIDUALS TO LOOK CLOSELY AND RATIONALLY PROVE FOR THEMSELVES THAT WHAT IS POPULARLY BELIEVED TO BE IN "THEIR BEST INTERESTS" ARE INDEED PROVING TO BE SO.
The "Snarling Fox" while having been defined as a "White Liberal" by the Great Malcolm X - will be open to ANY PERSON of ANY RACE. The only qualification is that this person enjoy mass popularity among Black folks and thus is allowed nearly unchecked access to our sensibilities. Where as the classical "Guardians of Blackness" are skeptical, untrusting and possess the speed and ferocity of an alligator - this person has turned this gator on their back and gently lulled them into a pacified sleep.
Again - unlike other "awards" I will identify the person. Detail the "common goal" that he has violated for Black people and then provide details on his antics and finally was to lessen the negative impact of this person upon the common interests of Black America.
