My friend Filled Negro - I actually like you man.
Despite your leftist ways I appreciate the permanent presence of the "Kill Count" in the "right hand panel of shame" on your blog AND your occasional diversion from your propaganda as you focus upon certain critical issues within our community. I have no problem giving you a shout out when it is deserved.
Regarding your comment up above - it does not bother me.
(Please allow me to "go around the block" for the sake of CONTEXT before I bring it back home for you)
You see 12 years ago when my wife and I as newly weds were looking for a community we did in fact choose a home that was one county away from the Atlanta. This particular county showed up as the right mix of public safety, quality education and property appreciation. It also happened to be a Republican dominated county that was famous for its lack of dance clubs and liquor stores.
You know what Filled Negro? After years of hearing barbs from my Progressive Black friends about "living out with the White folks" - I noticed a certain trend......THEY began to move into these similar areas just like me.
In addition to this the county that separates where I live from Atlanta - which is called "Clayton County" has experienced a massive amount of CHANGE over the past 20 years that I have lived here. This county became a majority Black county about 7 years ago. In each subsequent election more of the "White Good Ole Boy System" was taken apart by this new active electorate. The only issue, Filled Negro is that this old "Good Ole Boy Network" was all WHITE DEMOCRATS who did not go the way of the "Dixiecrats". They simply MOVED SOUTH once there was a new sheriff in town.
In the past several years this county of Clayton has been in the news frequently. With the new majority population taking control of the county board, the school district and the law enforcement - the "Happy Days" that were talked about by the local Black talkshows and the CIVIL RIGHTS AGITATORS who they gave voice to NEVER CAME TO BE.
The past protests about "These White folks are setting up speed traps to give Black folks speeding tickets" shifted over to a fight between the new Black sheriff against the Black police chief and the Black sheriff against the County board president. As of last week the county board president has a lawsuit against the board. All of these are DEMOCRATS, Filled Negro.
Last year the Clayton County schools lost their accreditation largely because of the massive amount of infighting and disregard for their mission.
In a brand new high school reports of GANG activity surfaced. The normal excuse about the LACK OF EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES could not possibly be the case.
Incidents of high school students being shot and killed as well as an increase in home invasions were registered.
Then I started noticing something Filled Negro - in the "racist Republican" controlled county that I live in MORE BLACKS were pouring out of Clayton County to live right next door to their IDEOLOGICAL ENEMIES.
This most recent 2008 election was an eye opener. The amount of Democratic Party signs in this county were at a record clip. From this I coined the term "Black Flight Progressive".
You see Filled Negro - where as you tag ME for "moving away from the ghetto" and thus washing my hands of the situation - YOU REALLY need to "Holla at your boys!!!".
I have strong opposition about your ideological and political methodologies. I am a "lost cause" as far as you are concerned.
The "Black Flight Progressives" on the other hand filled Negro - they have chosen to MOVE out of the progressive bastion which THEY BROUGHT FORTH via their voting and their general support for the new PREVAILING SOCIAL ORDER. Once their favored people took control of the place - they took measure of the IMPACT that it all had upon their interests. They DID NOT LIKE WHAT THEY SAW Filled Negro. They chose instead to LIVE NEXT DOOR TO THEIR IDEOLOGICAL ADVERSARIES.
When the IDEOLOGY transitioned from a THEORETICAL STANCE into one in which their FAMILY HAD SKIN IN THE GAME via the questions around:
* Their safety
* Their education
* Their PROPERTY VALUES...........they chose to get to stepping.
You see Filled Negro despite moving and thus showing their CONSUMER PREFERENCES - they still VOTE the very same way as they used to. In their line of reasoning they are maintaining their CONNECTION WITH THEIR "PEEPS" in voting for the machine that seeks to include everyone in the rising tide. It just so happens that they don't want to expose themselves to the tidal changes.
I hope that you can agree that the BLACK FLIGHT PROGRESSIVE should be held in more contempt by YOU than I should be. They partake in the ideological religion that YOU partake in but they are NOW LIVING NEXT DOOR TO ME!!!
Do me a favor Filled Negro - Please now purge the background material of all PARTISAN references. You have a habit of ignoring everything else that I say and focusing on the calculus of Democrat vs Republican
Let us instead focus on the SUMMATION OF FACT.
It can be stated based on the migratory behavior detailed up above that:
WE ALL VALUE THE VERY SAME THINGS:
* Safe Communities
* Quality Schools
* Economic Prosperity
What my new neighbors showed me is that they willing to RELOCATE in order to gain access to these favorable attributes - even if it means moving next door to their ideological enemies.
Thus, Filled Negro - shouldn't we be focused on BOTH these ATTRIBUTES and the ability to ACTUALLY EXPRESS them? It appears that some people are far more smitten about the PURSUIT OF THESE ATTRIBUTES than they are in the EFFECTIVE ATTAINMENT of them.
Thus my central challenge to you and others is to make note of the gross contradiction in terms that you have. You HATE the ideology that has DELIVERED that which you aspire to obtain in that they have specifically focused these benefits upon their own little plot of land rather than for general consumption by the open masses. It is a greater offense to you that they seek to act as CONSERVATORS of the lawn that they have manicured than you are able to see the ultimate HATRED that is present in the areas that you demand that they pay attention to.
In other words - your world their lack of regard for the domain that you are interested in improving rises to a greater assault upon your interests than the PREVAILING ETHOS that is contained WITHIN this domain in question. Filled Negro - I can ONLY conclude that is it the assumptions of their SUPERIORITY that affords you and others to focus on what these outsiders are NOT DOING (ie:sharing with you) than you care to focus on what those who are on the INSIDE of the domain are ACTIVELY DOING (or failing to do).
What the HELL were you aspiring for POLITICAL CONTROL for for this long IF you now don't like the damned RESULTS? Was it a part of the contract that THEY REMAIN BEHIND and submit themselves to YOUR rule? In your world is the FREEDOM TO RESIDE WHERE ONE PLEASES even in existence?
This all leads me to the UNSPOKEN CONCEPTS that one is not likely to hear from your ideological comrades - With you all being so fervently in pursuit of YOUR EXTERNAL ENEMIES.......what exactly are you doing to TAKE CARE OF THE INSIDE OF THE FORT? Does the successful assumption of MORE GROUND actually imperil your people of interest?
It's just not that hard Filled Negro.
It does not take a rocket scientist to see that one day the PERMANENT REVOLUTIONARY who fights against the POLICE and DA MAN.......must one day BECOME the POLICE FUNCTION when he is in control. Failing to IMPOSE A NEW ORDER and then be CONSERVATORS of this order will mean that you will inch toward CHAOS not the fields of gold.
Filled Negro - what happens when YOUR LAST ENEMY CLOSES THE DOOR BEHIND HIMSELF?
Will YOU become the "new CONSERVATOR" as you seek to put forth an order within this functionally CLOSED CONTAINER where you now stand?
Failing to manage the land that you have functional control you will ONLY EVER BE an "EXPANSIONARY, INORGANIC movement" who's basic existence is to PURSUE YOUR GOALS rather than MANAGE THEM INTO FRUITION.
It might just be that the "Promised Land" is resident in Southwest Philly. Only a thin coating of dust that could be washed off blocks the VISION of such a land for the residents within. Instead you and others have them lobbying for gas powered LEAF BLOWERS from the government as their RIGHT in the name of SOCIAL JUSTICE before they will lift a finger to do this dusting.
I AIN'T YOUR ENEMY BRO.
I am attempting to REMOVE MYSELF from your gun sights until YOU and others settle upon an orientation that you can build a society off of. You are STILL wondering in the wilderness, GPS in hand but the batteries have died on you in the 38th year of your 40 year struggle. It was only supposed to be a 5 year struggle but the GOAL POSTS were moved as favorable leadership took over and told the masses how unscrupulous the adversary is. They were given more time to deliver each time.
