Who Defines The Priorities Within In The Black Community - Especially When The Focus Doesn't Match The Scale Of The Problem

Please Note: These Articles Are Posted Not To Debate The Subject Matter Contained Within But To Index The Present Condition Of The Black Community As The Basis For This Argument

In the present governance model of the Black community - results do not matter.  Intentions and the claim of "Moral Certainty" trump all other points of evidence that a survey might provide information upon our present coordinates.

When an article like the first on the bullet list shows that our ship has stalled and is listing toward the starboard side - those with influence can often be found promoting a new initiative that drives UNITY but not necessarily conclusive uplift.

In my analysis the prevailing consciousness position - which comes from the aggregation of individual views - is that the Black community is not the prevailing force controlling its own interests.  Instead it is mostly a derivative of the national condition.  This is the case in the domains of economics, education, law & justice and health.

As you consider the above list it should be noted that all of these points have a local governance attribute to them.  Certainly strong local institutions that are committed to effective and accountable governance would be able to mitigate the balance of any of these concerns.  By investing in these institutions the people who are now seen "chasing social justice windmills" would have their efforts focused on mechanisms that have far more traction toward their uplift.

If we note the statements of Rev Warnock, the leader of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta - who has several thousand members - his "Priority #1" appears to be focused on changing GOVERNMENT rather than changing GOVERNANCE of the institutions within the Black community.

The truth is that fewer Black people would make it to death row if our institutional governance was more effective in engaging our people into a movement that produced more organic uplift.  There is no construct within the present Black community governance model that could take in the mission as voiced by Rev Warnock, look at the economic condition that our people face and then choice the fork that will have the greater long term benefit for our people's interests.

Of course these two points are not mutually exclusive.  However, in the present model Blacks are sought to stay unified and focus on the issue de jure.   The internal problems that the leadership should be held accountable for are thus demoted or even obfuscated as the fault of someone else.  This is the sign that "group think" (or as my economist friend recently called "tribalism") trumps good governance.

The present economic, political and justice issues faced by the Black community are a necessary interval for our people to pass through.   We must understand that the circumstances are less important than is the SOLUTIONS that are promoted as a means of mitigating these problems.

It is important that we not allow ideas and strategies that were consummated during a time when Blacks were outsiders to these key institutions be allowed to live during a time when "favorable people" are in power.  Then they become a means of promoting a protection racket for those who should otherwise be held accountable.

Can The "Obama Fist Bump Black Press" Get Beyond Satisfying Themselves With Obama's Speeches And Start To Defend The Interests Of The Black Community?

MSNBC's The David Love: Should Blacks Be Satisfied With Obama's Job Speech?


When you hear an "Obama Fist Bump Black Press" member using a rhetorical question in relation to Obama and Black folks - you can be assured that what follows is a sales job and NOT a separation between the interests of the Black Community and that of The President/Democratic Party and Progressivism.

Instead the fatal fusion that has causes our people to invest so much and put so many of the returns on forbearance.  The NEXT election is now supposed to be the big pay off for all of our vested hopes and dreams for uplift.

Per the lack of transparency within the Black press forces - they show that they are unable to take a doggedly defensive posture from the plans that come out of EVERY President's mouth - as they pretend they are our community's watch dogs.   Though Maxine Waters said she would like to see $1,000 Billion in spending - when her party-mate President came out with $447B she was not hear saying that Blacks where SHORT CHANGED as we heard with "No Child Left Behind", instead she said "The CBC's finger prints are all over Obama's plan".

I expect to hear her say "AND ITS' WORKING.  YOU SHOULD THANK ME".

What we are seeing, people, is the grand flaw of having the BLACK WAGON hitched to the DEMOCRATIC PARTY/PROGRESSIVE Turbo Engine.   This sports car doesn't want to be burdened with a hit post sticking out from its rear bumper and its engine and suspension system is not meant to carry this external weight that the Black Racial Services Machine's wagon has affixed to it via the fatal Joint Venture that they have agreed to.

This jobs proposal is merely a FOOTBALL for Black Progressives to fight along with their Cheshire Fox friends against the Conservative Wolves.  At the end of it all the JOBS created are the happenstantial reside. The FIGHT is the main event.

I make note of Mr Love's lack of ARCHITECTURE in his appraisal of the Obama Jobs Bill as contrasted with a time when the BLACK PERMANENT INTERESTS and associated REACTION was defined by the amount of NEED.

My Response On "The"
Mr Love: When you say "THE OTHER SIDE" are you saying this as: 1) A journalist transparently telling about Obama's political opposition? 2) A Progressive, Democratic-leaning jouranlist who is expressing his personal biases? 3) As a Black journalist defending the interests of the Black Community? You see, Mr Love - since this story used the primary subject of the "Black Community" - it seems to me that the OTHER SIDE is the forces that have failed to leverage the key "Human Resource Development Institutions" that bear upon Black people from birth that have received our INVESTMENTS as part of our "Community Development Hopes" yet which have not come through for our community and our NEEDS in support of the desired STANDARD OF LIVING. Why are we debating the benefit of $400 billion that is IN FRONT OF US but are loathed to talk about the VALUE of the investments that the Black community has put into this methodology that was supposed to reduce our chances for getting the "Economic Pneumonia"? Do you see, Mr Love - you and other Progressive Black Journalists are queueing up Black America to run another passing play in the "Malcolm X Political Football Game". We are asked to look at this legislation and who who might be opposed to it BUT NOT those who have shorted us over the longer period of time that they had unchallenged access to our community conscoiusness. (I hate to "go here" but......) Mr Love - Imagine that Obama's billions is a "George Bush Helicopter In Hurricane Katrina". As you evaluate the rescue potential of this helicopter you did a better job at defining the dimensions of our NEEDS. * How many people needed Rescue? * How many people can the "helicopter" carry? * With the number of helicopters "graciously" provided by the President - how long will it take to CLEAR OUT THE NEED? * Is this time domain ACCEPTABLE? * Is this helicopter the most efficient mode - or are there others? * WHY are we at this point where the Black community is VULERABLE to this flooding that we need a helicopter when so many privately owned vehicles owned by neighbors were available by vacated half empty? Long story short, Mr Love - Until the Black Press CLEARLY and UNAPPOLIGETICALLY evalulates the "football game' from the LONG TERM interests of our people - and stops selling our people the same thing but making us "try harder" your credibility as a message source will collapse to the point where only the "complcit congregation" accepts what you write. The rest of us who are "watching your church" will note that regardless of what the "pastor" does - those who publish the "church bulletin" will continue to do their thing, as they support the pastor more than the SALVATION of the congregation.
This is a necessary brush back of a vile person who's BIGOTRY is no less than that of a White bigot being that she and they are EQUAL HUMAN BEINGS. Super Sistah 1 is NOT interested in having a conversation that is modeled on the BLACK COMMUNITY. She is interested in exorcising her demons.

Post from SuperSistha 1
Pres. Obama is up against a lot of obstacles. For one thing -- he has a bunch in the House -- aka: THE TEA PARTY that has been very hostile to almost anything that benefits working people, elderly, schools, etc. Black people should be happy that someone has done something to start trying to get some pay in the pockets of all of these unemployed workers....since Global Warming BUSH permitted the big companies to send millions of jobs overseas. 
Give the CBC and Pres. Obama some credit for putting forth positive plans -- even though they will have to fight the PARTY OF NO.  IT IS TIME TO OPEN YOUR EYES....Tea Partiers --- I have said that the founders and funders of the TEA PARTY have ties to "white power groups"--such as Confederates and John Birchers. Some of the folks who post here have denied it. Here is an exercise for the TEA PARTY supporters who are blinded to the truth about the ideology of that bunch of JIM CROW's children. It is easy to find out...GO TO THE WEBSITES...of THE JOHN BIRCH SOCIETY...and "The Sovereign Citizens Movement" ,,and the NEO-CONFEDERATES...and then compare their "talking points" -- beliefs and ideology to what you see on GLENN BECK'S WEBSITE...and to some of the crap that comes out of the mouths of HANNITY, STOSSEL, PALIN, BACHMANN and RON PAUL.You might find that what I have said is very accurate. If you dig a little deeper -- you will find that many of these people fought against the Civil Rights Movement...and the Black leaders such as Dr. King and Barbara Jordan, etc. Then find out what RON PAUL (Tea Party founder) published in his foul NEWSLETTER for many years. If you check many of the so-called Republican Leaders -- who are always nitpicking Pres. Obama -- like that Gov. in AZ -- they also have ties with these "white supremacy" groups. Check it out yourself
Let's pretend that all of this is true - THE TEA PARTY IS THE NEW KLAN.
If we take an HONEST look within the Black community and consider the areas were we are hurting the most:

  1. The Tea Party does not run the failing school systems in Mission Accomplished Cities
  2. The Tea Party is not causing a "murdered Black man" to appear on the news nightly
  3. The Tea Party has no control over the local economic development planning that has not produced sufficient fruit for the Black community in line with our NEEDS or what we were PROMISED prior to making the investment.
When the Tea Party starts ATTACKING Black people in these 3 areas in PROPORTION to our problems - I will shift my focus over to them.

UNTIL THAT TIME I have to attribute the heightened focus upon them to "NON-WHITE WHITE SUPREMACY".  Their SKIN COLOR combined with the RACISM CHASERS ideological agenda makes their actions SUPERIOR to those forces who can be proven to be harming the Black community.   All the while the White Progressive Cheshire Fox looks on with PRIDE as his Embedded Black Fox Confidence Man are able to make wolf-howls that sound good enough to occupy the Cheshire Fox's broadcast chair when he is on vacation. 

My Response:
Super Sistah 1: There is a divorcee named ConsSuckBalls. Neither of you can get through a post, REGARDLESS OF THE SUBJECT, without relating it to: * The Tea Party * The Koch Brothers * George W Bush You both would be perfect for each other. [quote]has been very hostile to almost anything that benefits working people, elderly, schools, etc.[/quote] Super Sistah 1: When you look at the conditions for Black people in the Mission Accomplished Cities of: *Chicago * Detroit * Newark * Philly * Atlanta where no Tea Party Racist could get elected - can you show proof that a Progressive Democratic Executive branch, Legislative Branch and courts produce prosperity for the Negro community? History tells us that the BIGOT is the White man who saw- * A Raped White Woman * A Stolen Piece Of Property * A Dead White Man............ and they all agreed that A BLACK MAN DID IT!!!! You and several others on this board force everyone who is open minded to see that BIGOTRY knows no RACE or IDEOLOGY. The biggest crime that you commit, Sista - is against the Black Community. We need a MODEL OF THE REAL WORLD that accurately defines the forces that are PUSHING US DOWN and LIFTING US UP along with those who are TAKING OUR GOLD yet distracting us toward a FORCE that can't possibly represent the downward push that they are built up to be. Instead it is done to pick our pockets of our VOTES and our CONSCIOUSNESS. You are unable to accept that the Black community has been compelled to VOTE FOR OUR PROSPERITY for more than 50 years. For some reason you can't bring yourself to transparently inspect the RETURN ON INVESTMENT that we have received. [quote]Black people should be happy that someone has done something to start trying to get some pay in the pockets of all of these unemployed workers....since Global Warming BUSH permitted the big companies to send millions of jobs overseas.[/quote] PAY???? Sadly you can't accept that Blacks with college degrees have an unemployment rate lower than the national average - which should promote you to ask - WHY aren't the schools that are now controlled by Favorable People producing more graduates who can matriculate through the system and lower the average Black unemployment rate?

"MLK Was A Phony" - Why Should Mrs Kennedy's Opinions Be Worth More Than Those With Greater Stature Within Our Comunity?

Text Of Former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy on Dr King:

Jacqueline Kennedy spoke skeptically of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. She called him “tricky” and a “phony” after hearing about FBI tapes of him and a woman in his hotel room, while noting that JFK had urged her not to be judgmental. (JFK‘s own adulterous affairs weren’t yet widely known.) She said King had mocked her husband’s funeral and Cardinal Richard Cushing, who celebrated Mass at the funeral.
“He made fun of Cardinal Cushing and said that he was drunk at it,” she said. “And things about they almost dropped the coffin. I just can’t see a picture of Martin Luther King without thinking, you know, that man’s terrible.”

Beware! Incoming!!!!!

The news that former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy had critical comments of Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr - as reported from an interview in a new book - is likely to send shock waves through the Black channels of political discourse and fuel charges of racism by some of the closest allies of Black Progressives in the struggle.

I take a different approach.

From my research on various powerful Black figures that enjoy near universal praise - their time in which they were actually alive and in the flesh proved one thing - they were human.  They had flaws and not everyone loved them.  Sometimes for good reason.

Per my tastes - these other two men posted next to Dr King are more worthy analysts of his character and position.
When all three of them were alive they all are on record as having offered up criticism of each of their respective strategies.   Instead of protectionism through censorship or feigned outrage over the fact that not every Black fell in line with any of their dogmatic positions - the Black community operated with a more transparent base as the METHODOLOGY to the common end was debated, not their loyalties to the community itself.

The Kennedy Clan As A "Trusted Partner" That Should Have Been Forced To Have An Escort Around Our Protected Consciousness Core

I see how this is going to line up.
The very same people who, for agenda reasons, chose to assess Cornel West's "personal problems" with Obama so they didn't have to deal with his accurate criticism of Obama - using a progressive measuring stick - are going to also mishandle the criticism of King by Mrs Kennedy.

I am already on to the Kennedy's as founding members of the "White Progressive Cheshire Fox" club. It is my believe that the late Senator Ted Kennedy was the most DESTRUCTIVE force upon "Black ORGANIC Competency Development" Consciousness elected into power in the last 50 years.
We only need to go back to Atlantic City New Jersey and now how the newly elected Senator and his party treated activist Fannie Lou Hamer after she drove in a car from Mississippi to be recognized at the Democratic Convention of 1964.  The party sent progressive Hubert Humphrey out to "handle" Ms Hamer.   The claims that progressives like Kennedy had an instinctive love for Black human and civil rights is a tale for April Fools Day.

Just as the Union Movement grew to see the value of the EQUAL BLACK BALLOT so too did the Cheshire Foxes like Kennedy.   For them, however, the more nefarious result was that he could collect "Equal Black Ballots" into his cause via the exchange of "Social Justice Entitlements" that were sufficient enough to convince Black people that they no longer needed to erect the infrastructure to grow these assets ORGANICALLY in the communities who's institutions they began to control in increasing measure.

It was not INTEGRATION OF RACES that destroyed the Black Community
It was the INTEGRATION of the "Black Community Development Consciousness" INTO the "American Political Domain" in which we were convinced that we could VOTE our way into prosperity by articulating and then struggling for our portion of "Social Justice" that proved to be the fatal ingestion for our people's consciousness.   Today these thoughts flow through our bloodstream as does the heave metal lead.

John F Kennedy was cut down too soon for anyone to make a full measure of what would have been his long term engagement with the Black Community.

Instead his young brother Ted took over and provided anyone who is HONEST in their appraisals of where we stand as a community with sufficient information as to the character of his theories upon our community.

I do not hate Ted Kennedy or any of his family members.
I am only arguing for the need to PROTECT the "Black Community Consciousness Core" from USURPERS.   Those of them who work with closer proximity are the larger threat to our interests.

Those of them who have a disarming pelt upon their backs - allowing them to blend in, in which their FAVORABLE IDEOLOGY serves as a guise to their real agenda have more than exceeded the damage that Ted Kennedy has done to the independent consciousness of the Black Community.

The words spoken by Jackie Kennedy matter not.  The damage done by the joint-venture that has been erected inside the Black community with heavy references to her husband's family's legacy will take decades to repair.
