Is A Person Who Believes That Blacks Are Inferior In Managing Societies But That Their VOTES Inside America Are EQUAL Still A Racist?

(Quote me on this one as these are my observations).

In our struggle for "Equality" in America - Black people have sought the right to speak in the public square though the voting process in the selection of the nation's political leaders as evidence us having achieved this elusive state.

Few people see the distinction between the "ballot" that counts as "one man one vote" and all of the elements by which an individual can both be seen as "equal" by others and believe himself to be "equal" - playing the part in all that he does.

Simply put the "equality" of the vote for all qualified Americans flows from the government and its enforcement of this national tenant.  Indeed sanctions and administrative regulation can be put forth to mandate that the "name-less, face-less" ballot, when placed into the bin is seen as EQUAL to that which is filed by other people who place their ballot indiscriminately into the same basket.

On the issue of individual "equality" - we have a far more complex matter.

Individual (and group) equality is a two way affair.  Not only can the individual demand to be treated as an "equal human being" per the ability of the government to provide consequences to those who violate his rights - it is necessary that this same individual express their own "equality" per their interactions with the broader society AND their ability to manage their own affairs when left unmolested to do so.

Are You Mistaking People Who Value Your Ballot As An Equal Document In Support Of Their Ideological Agenda For Their View Of Your Individual Competency?

I have been forthcoming about my views that certain "Snarling Foxes" appear to have inferior expectations for Black people:

  • Our public racialism is not condemned equally
  • Those of us who become elected leaders are given a certain handicap 
  • The quest to nationalize our nation's resources, providing relief at the periphery is done to obfuscate the policy consequences that are made locally

It seems that as long as we are good for a vote in the right column the small compromises that must be made for the sake of accommodation are well worth the "equal votes" that are collected in the process.

Sadly - if we indeed go into these local "mission accomplished lands" we see that it is ultimately IRRELEVANT regarding the slanderous label that is applied to our "human and community resource acumen".  The facts on the ground tell a more powerful narrative. 

I am also of the opinion that the grievances that these conditions generate as the cycle in which power is achieved and results fall short thus causing more grievances - lend themselves to the grieving masses agreeing to lend their vote to those who show up and are willing to hear them.   This - even IF these are the same people who lead them to their present condition. (Or failed to build them up as promised).

When I attended the East Point Georgia housing voucher give away - I made the case that if they had an local election that day and placed the voting machines in the same shopping center - these grieving people would have voted for whatever "qui pro quo" scheme that was orchestrated for their benefit.

These places (Newark) where all of the seats of power are otherwise favorable and still the struggle has not been resolved prove my point that VOTING cannot and will never trump the necessary core "Human & Community Resource Management Principles" that are necessary to move a people.

I believe with everything in me that there are people who are observing our people and are maintaining what I call a "Vote Harvesting System".   They key us pacified enough to VOTE as the primary expression of our locomotion but not enough to turn against those who have lead us along.   With the complicit operatives in the press and the entertainment media they doggedly keep us struggling against the enemy but never to the awareness that - WE HAVE ALREADY USED OUR "EQUAL BALLOT" TO VOTE THE ENEMY OUT.

Malcolm X Grass Roots Movement Honors El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz

On this day February 21, 1965 El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz was assassinated at the young age of 39.
One could only guess the great works that he would have produced had he been allowed to live until 80 - by the grace of God.

On this past Saturday I went out of my way to attend the "Malcolm X Commemorative Banquet" as sponsored by the "Malcolm X Grassroots Movement".

The main driver for my attendance, however, was the news that they would honor "Sister Courage".

The late Njere Alghanee was the long time radio host of "The Friday Night Drum" on WRFG ("The Progressive Information Station"). While I disagreed with "Sister Courage" ideologically I have to credit her and others in the "Detached Progressive" segment of the left for being far less prone to protect establishment progressives in government and the Democratic Party. My criticism comes not from people being progressive - I am forced to agree with some of their positions. What I can't stomach is when those who claim to operate in the best interests of the Black community are shown to be executing upon an empty ideological exercise.

For about 6 months I had problems with my Internet streaming radio recording software after I upgraded to Windows 7.  As such I missed the news of "Sister Courage's" untimely death.   When I did tune in and hear a new host and then heard them referencing her death I was saddened to hear the loss.

I attended the banquet in order to understand who this person was.

What I saw was that she was the mother of a large family (6 children) and a loving husband.  All of whom missed her presence.

The personal testaments given by a variety of people who worked with her brought to life the number of people who she has helped along the way better than the printed bio.

The musical performance was good.  Jazz-Soul vocals.

The food was good.  I ate the vegetarian stir fried vegetables with (what I guess was) "ground beef-like"/soy crumbles.  Since I am trying to eat more vegetarian means I also jump at the chance to sample how other people with more experience have cooked and seasoned their meal.  They did a good job.

Natural Hair & Afro-Centric Garb

The vast majority of the people on the scene had long dreds as their hair style (or bald heads) and wore Afro-centric grab.  There were some beautiful women in the house.  Their hair and their dress perfectly complimenting their aura.

"Speak Truth To Power"

I will address the term "Speak Truth To Power" on my sister blog "Within The Black Community" a bit more critically.
To be honest I am a bit concerned at the use of this word and the concepts that it emotes.  When applied for obfuscatory purposes it provides the energy for the "boil the ocean" - "congregational unity" that is so problematic with our community today.

Put aside Rev Jemimah Wright (which I will also discuss on the sister blog), the majority of the speakers at the banquet made reference to the "Struggle" and the need to "Speak Truth To Power".   While I knew far in advance that this group that is associated with WRFG & WAOK and who drive for "Reparations" and who has "Stop Police Brutality" as their primary call as being far left.  I also credit them for being what I have noted as the "detached progressives" (not working for the benefit of the Democratic Party) - the still appear to exhibit the fundamental characteristic of Progressivism:

  • The need to cleave to some universal INDICTMENT against an external threat which unifies them
Again - I credit them for have more of a culture and consciousness that rejects certain elements of American consumerism and they have Christianity as their base religion.  

When it comes to their use of "Speak Truth To Power" - they are too frequently made to overlook both the "power" that is now in the hands of "favorable people" and the large array of forces that are swirling within the Black community that need to be confronted with "rules of engagement" that differs from that which is seen with external adversaries.

Black Economics - Two Perspectives On Banking & Finance

I heard two reports recently that are related to issues that many Black Americans face with their finances. One report appeared to promote the "I Know Who Did This To Us" theme of advocacy as a means of maintaining the "struggle". The other presented a more dispassionate analysis of what happened and then detailed the efforts that are taking place to provide needed "access to capital" and banking services.

I let you figure out which is which.

Esperanza Spalding Should Not Need A "Grammy Award" To Affirm Her Greatness And Have Her Talents Promoted Within Our Community

The "hateration" on Esperanza Spalding that was triggered by Justin Bieber fans should not be the observation that triggers our community into action in defense of Esperanza Spalding.

Instead her ample talents and quality music - which could trigger other young people to follow in her footsteps - slowly pushing 'Hip Hop Voice Of The Street Pirate Music" to the side. The music form that would tend to refer to Ms Spalding as a "Trick" needs to be replaced by a musical form that taps into a different constellation within our spirit.

Esperanza Spalding walked through a doorway and onto the stage, having bypassed the other entrances that had a long line of "also rans" clogging the way. There are other young ladies and men who are seeking a way to connect their music lessons with some practical application.

They can now say "When I perfect my skills I want to be recognized as a brilliant musical talent - just like Esperanza Spalding"

Change won't come to our people until will AFFIRM some things and JETTISON some spoiled meat from the fridge.

Is There Any Hint Of The Suggested Defenses To "The Conspiracy To Destroy Black Boys" In The NAACP'S Actions In North Carolina

This is my "Love" blog.  A companion to the "Tough Love" blog - "Within The Black Community".

I would like to remove myself from the debate over "Black Competency Development" via proper governance of "Human Resource Development Institutions".

I submit the video series from the popular book "Countering The Conspiracy To Destroy Black Boys".
Please note the title of Juwanza Kunjufu's book. It says COUNTERING!!

Please watch the videos and after you do so - sit back and see if all that you have heard "sits right" with you our if it should be repudiated as unrealistic.

Listen to  Kunjufu's specific suggestions to EMPOWER Black students, their parents and teachers - go back and review the activist movement that is taking place in North Carolina (see here) to determine if they are in line or out of line.

Repurposing The Consciousness Of The Young Black Male: Men Ain't Boys

(Hat tip - Black Informant blog)

The "Men Ain't Boys" Web Site

The "White Snarling Fox Liberal" Is More Dangerous To Our Consciousness Due To The Number Of Blacks Who Echo His Theories

I have printed out and read the entire "Austerity For Whom" report from "United For A Fair Economy".

What is disguised as a policy frame work for "racial uplift" for Blacks (and Hispanic and working class Whites) against policies that work against their best interests is actually a politically based framework to ensnare our people into a line of thinking that has proven destructive to our interests.

I have said previously: "There is no longer an organic Black community development agenda".  There is only a political power struggle in the context of the "American Political Domain".  The Black Establishment has purposely fused our community development interests into the progressive wing of the Democratic Party - per the words said by Bayard Ruskin in 1968 - right after Martin Luther King Jr's assassination.

The "Fair Economy" report comes right out of the chute and frames our struggle as Black people as a fight against "Republican policies". 

Ironically they point to the rise of Black wealth in the 1950s and 60s and then the fall of it during the 1970's as "Republicans" initiated a backlash against the "gains" had by Blacks (in the Labor Movement).   As long as you remain within their framing - you won't bother to note that Black POLITICAL power is at an all time high.   Instead they use the occasion of the 'First Black President' to pay tribute to the TEA PARTY which rose to power to greet Obama in the "WHITE House".

I actually have to give credit to the authors of this report.  They indeed know how Black people think and how to set up our directions for the next interval of "the struggle".    They carefully avoid the issue of the "Mission Accomplished" cities where progressive power is now unchecked - yet they are the centers of the economic erosion that they speak of.

If They Don't Reference "Organic Competencies Within The Black Community" Don't Waste Your Ink To Print The Report

Again - there is no shame to the game of the 'United For A Fair Economy' group.  They say: "If implemented, they will continue a thirty year trend that began in the 1970s (Ronald Reagan) when a political backlash to WIDEN THE ECONOMIC DIVIDE AND RETARD AMERICA'S PROGRESS TOWARD RACIAL EQUALITY".

As you read the report you'll see that 100% of the policy initiatives to ACHIEVE this "racial equality" are rooted in GOVERNMENT REDISTRIBUTIVE POLICIES - not one mention of ORGANIC GROWTH as a result of the Black Community's governance over the "Human Resource Development Institutions" that favorable people now control.

Instead we are supposed to buy into what we had purchased previously - the notion that 'once we get OUR PEOPLE into power over our SCHOOLS....things will be different'.     Today they stand INSIDE of the halls of power and ask for MORE investments so that this day will one day be had.

Sorry - I want earnest money before I continue this time.

Blacks Will Be Harmed By Republican Cuts To Government Programs Because Blacks Are More DEPENDENT On The Government Programs That We Erected To Support Them

When you are spinning within a vortex, my friends, the ONLY way to get out is if you fixate on a PERMANENTLY AFFIXED object and then anchor yourself upon it.  As the vortex moves past you - you will be saved.

For me - the key mandate upon which all policies must be appraised against is COMPETENCY DEVELOPMENT.   This thwarts the majority of the policies that the "White Liberal Snarling Fox" attempts to sell to us.

We only need look at the 40 year run that they speak of.   The fact that today they fear that PROGRAM cuts will harm Black people they implicitly admit that the PILLARS that hold too many of our people up to their present standard are provided by these programs that they have graced us with.

Does it stand to logical reason that as the federal debt moves beyond $14,000 billion in total and the previously predicted impact that will come with the retirement of the "Baby Boomers" that all who look toward this trough for their uplift will soon see the folly of their choices?

Closing This Vast Economic Divide Was A Core Objective Of Dr King Jr And His Supporters

With all due respect to Dr King - if you can't show me any plans for factories or economic curriculum ever presented by Dr King or his lieutenants than the best that you can ever say is that they INTENDED to close this gap but failed to produce a LOGISTICAL PLAN that would have successfully carried this out.    It seems that Dr King's name was added to this report in the same way that was seen in the skit from the program 'In Living Color' at the talent show.  Everyone used Dr King as their role model because they knew the impact of dropping this name upon the panel of judges who would appraise their talents.

Today the districts that are represented by those of "King's Lieutenants" that remain have some of the highest concentrations of unemployment, squandered academic potential and civil rights violations against Black people - but for them being labeled as such.

This report is as guilty of molesting King's image for their own use today than any other adversary of King is guilty of.

It is stunning to see a progressive group make note that "Black unemployment rates are at DEPRESSION LEVELS" and yet instead of questioning their progressive brothers and sisters who control the "industrial policy" over the places where the unemployment are highest - they point out that the Tea Party Republicans had BLOCKED "job creating policies".

When we point out the industrial boom that took place in Milwaukee, Detroit, Chicago, Philly, Buffalo and St Louis - is there a massive "government spending package" that we can look toward that made all of this happen OR was labor also protesting about the level of exploitation they suffered at this time  -just as they do today?

A Needed Course Correction In Consciousness

These types of reports that enlist the power of fear and hatred that is seen in the Black community for the benefit of the progressive establishment has had clearly detrimental impact upon our community.   Today we stand, "on paper", at amazing political heights.  Yet the general conditions in the streets shows us how despite these "wins" we have still "lost".  

The fault resides in the fact that we chose to go with "a team" rather than manage our affairs with reference to our "Permanent Interests".  The more we abstract our "Permanent Interests" with both distance (via the federal government instead of local) and layers of management (parties and ideology) the more we are assured to allow forbearance of our interests until the "middle men" are victorious.  We will be employed as foot soldiers in their struggle.

As a means to the end of having the consciousness of "Self-Determination" instilled as the primary ethos upon which the Black Community operates upon my present actions are attuned to the present prevailing threat.

The over-arching goal is Community Development.   The immediate objective is to have my people distinguish between those things that can be fixed via the "American Political Domain" and those things that should be mitigated in the "Community Cultural Consciousness & Competency Development Domain".  Having too much of our hopes stacked within the political domain merely perpetuates the present usurpation of our power for the profit of others.  We are left with the empty feeling after having "WON" but "LOST" in the end as our Permanent Interests have not been obtained as expected.

 I am not unwise to the forces that see value in the "human resources" within our community and seek to USE them for their own particular purposes.   On the front end they make use of their position of CONFIDENCE that they have with our people to send out steady streams of fortifications - playing on our emotions to seal our fate for the future.  These forces prefer UNITY to the condition of a Black Community that is fully actualized - risking the day that their desired IDEOLOGY and POLITICAL JOINT-VENTURE is severed because our dependent spirit is eradicated from our collective bodies.

Those who use our "Slave / Jim Crow" past for to further their agenda today are no less reprehensible as those who long for the days in the past when their people had unchecked POWER - and yet today they loath to mention these fateful details of how this power was amassed.  Both are equal rogues in my book.

 The "confidence men & women" who lurk within our Community Consciousness Nucleus need to be removed from this sacred space lest they continue to damage us.   The very fact that there is not a TRANSPARENT system for their own appraisal, no systematic means for their retirement and little evidence that the next generation that is to replace them is bring educated via a scientific process that produces EFFECTIVE RESULTS proves that there is mischief afoot per their entrenchment.

They must lose their ability to influence our "Community Development Agenda" in that they have set up a fateful deal with their external partners.  While the partnership is as strong as ever - the outcomes that are produced via the HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTIONS that they now control are little different from when we started our trek.

Today with our freedoms won - yet the struggles and grievances in tact our problem is less one resulting from OPPRESSION and more attributable to the lack of a TRANSFORMATIVE HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT PLAN.   We are lulled into looking toward "Caesar" to develop us in accordance with what we declare should be afforded to all who set foot inside of a geographic space.  The more damning indictment against this set of theories is that the subplot where it has monopoly control SHOULD BE a foreshadowing of the glories that we should expect upon the final victory.  Instead these areas are a foreshadowing that all who are sentient should be wary about.

The failure to enlist our people as the central agents for UPLIFT of our community to the standard that we desire will insure that we retain our "consumer consciousness" - falling prey to various confidence men who sel us a good narrative.  

Sadly for some people - the sight of "happy Black people, HOPEFUL about the future" IS the sight that they strive for, regardless of how vacuous of a platform this notion is built upon.

Southern Somalia Votes To Split From The North

Southern Sudan Votes To Split From The North

Over the weekend I learned that a good friend of mine is now in the nation of "Djibouti", seeking out contracts  for certain construction deals.

Today I talked with a business owner/client of mine from Ethiopia who I provide IT consulting advice for their American based business - which has an office in Ethiopia.

Eastern Africa is rich with history.   The choice of the people in the southern portion of Sudan to form their own nation is a tremendous step toward "Self Determination".

The vote to split is completely distinct from the LOGISTICAL process which is necessary to ensure that this - the world's newest nation - is not "stillborn".

I recall about 10 years ago that I visited Arizona.  I had several hours to kill after a conference that I had attended and I decided to go joy riding to understand the landscape.   Arizona is a "desert state".   I pulled off to the side of the road and closely inspected a open cement water canal that brought fresh water into the city.  I made note of some fish that were present in the fast running water.   If they relaxed their muscles which they used to swim against the tide for even a split second - the current would cause them to be flushed down stream.   This sight of Arizona's dependence on EXTERNAL water sources showed me that: Absent its linkage from the greater United States of America - this "desert state" could not possibly lift itself up to the "American standard of living" via their ORGANIC production.

There stature as a "state" is what allows this plot of land to exist as it does.  The "Country of Arizona" would be an impoverished territory - awaiting a violent takeover in its emaciated state.

At a time when so many long for a "United States Of Africa" - there appears to be a greater will toward autonomy.  

For decades we have heard that it was the fault of the Berlin Conference of 1884 to divide the nations of Africa without respect to the tribal realities.  The splitting of natural groups of people - placing portions of them into the same nation-state was purposely done to retain conflict - in the opinions of some.

The problem is that we don't see any serious reconciliation movements which acknowledge these more natural borders and seek to rectify them.  What was done by the rifle in the late 1800's can't seem to be carried forth through the deliberative bodies such as the "United Nations".

The troops from the United Nations move in and out of various "African Nations", without regard to the wishes of the sovereign governments in a way that is similar to the unilateral movements of the USA in Iraq and Afghanistan.  For some reason they escape the damnation for their troop movements that is received by the USA.

Black Sistas Are Seeing That "A Dependible Brother In Their Household" Is More Important Than A "Brother In The White House"

Laying The Groundwork For My Argument About The Present Condition That Women Suffer With In Their Relationship With Black Males Who Are Unattached To A Particular Productive Social Framework
(Please skip this section of you don't want to hear about the political and ideological underpinnings of the problem)

Most of my critics assume that I am a clandestine Black Republican operative when I make note of the fact that "There is no longer an Organic Black Community Development Agenda" to speak of.  It has been hijacked.  It is now "100% ensconced within the American Political Domain for use by Progressives".  They ask us to be UNIFIED - dismissing those who dare ask question about their agenda as being "Enemies of the Black State". The fact that they often rebut these challenges by pointing to Black politicians who they got into power OR demanding that the critic tell them what the Republicans have ever done for Black people - exposes their hands as mere political operatives.  They don't point to the actual attainment of the key "Permanent Interests" that Black people first engaged in the struggle to obtain.

  The embedded operatives within our community work to line up the Black community to walk through a certain gateway in our quest to address and resolve our community problems. In their binary consciousness they believe that "attacks on their beloved Democratic Party and on Progressivism" is equal to the promotion of the Republican Party.  I am merely establishing just proportions of my focus to the force that most acutely  threaten our interests per their proximity to our core consciousness and their numerical advantage which they use to drag others along with them.

This powerful embedded force prefers to talk about politics and race.   This is to their advantage in retaining our community consciousness fixed upon the "American Political Domain" where they can throw out INDICTMENTS against external adversaries who the mass of Black people can be made to believe is our problems.  All the while there exists benign neglect in the more critical  "Community Cultural Consciousness And Competency Development Domain".  As the control stations are vacated within our community as our attention is hijacked as such - the most pressing problems that we face as a community and as a people are allowed to fester.

 Those who have attempted to fuse our community interests to their own ideological and partisan interests merely "double down" as they blame the latest round of problems upon this same external enemy.  An enemy that just happens to perfectly line up with the desired political and ideological outcomes that they have struggled against.   Despite them having obtained various seats of POWER during their last interval of STRUGGLE - they continue to do what they know best: STRUGGLE.  This has a "unifying effect" upon Black people.  They need not worry about being criticized as the usual critics are standing right beside them and thus would have to criticize themselves if any criticism was ever to be heard.

 This is the key consciousness hijacking that has stunted the organic growth of our community.  This is because they have turned to the "national social contract" which they have inked as a means of addressing the issues amongst our people that are more appropriately handled within.   In essence - they lack a management plan of our people.  They only have a "political struggle scheme" upon which they have obtained their power.

Sistas Are Ready To Cut The Brothers Loose

Black Conscious Thought Blog: Question - Have Black Women Checked Out Too?

There are some discussion points that occur "just between us chickens" that renew my hope in the belief that others see what I see.  That what I see is not unreasonable - despite what the "Attack Sheep Dogs" who go after "wayward sheep" are trained to tell independent thinkers about their erroneous speech.

Finally they are no longer willing to retain the front for the same of "unity".  It is this quest for UNITY which has afforded unsavory operatives to continue their hijacking of our community interests.

As I read the comments of the Black females on the present state of male/female relationships in the Black community I heard elemental references to what I had previously noted regarding the severed state of the "Black Community".  They believe that all pretenses that there is a "Black Community" where people afford each other mutual respect in line with certain collective goals has been shattered.   This well has been tapped too often and is now drawing up buckets of dust.

More clearly - they believe that the number of Black males that are trifling in regards to their fiduciary duties to uphold the community and their relationships with the women and children within that they (Black females) are giving up on retaining their side of the bargain.  They are no longer willing to negotiate with a prospective partner that has goals that are tragically different than their own.


My arguments all along has been that the successful hijacking of our "community consciousness" for deployment in the American Political Domain has left this residue of dysfunction among our relationships throughout our community.  Instead of building the "fabric of community" where "Healthy Relationship Outcomes" (one of the Permanent Interests that I have heard from the masses and enumerated on the list) is evidence - short term political gains were advanced as a more important agenda item.

The attempt of "Ideological Unity Enforcement" where "Racism Chasing" is often used as the glue to keep us together because of the unrelenting threat from "our enemies" is the main culprit in the carnage that exists.  The spirit of FEAR is able to trump rational thought.   Sadly the over use of endorphins that are released when a body is under stress begins to have detrimental effects upon the body when they are overused.

Endorphins:  they resemble the opiates in their abilities to produce analgesia and a feeling of well-being.
Over Exposure To: Therefore, besides sleeplessness, opioid peptides can also cause depressions. In chronically depressed people, free endorphin level is 3 fold higher (because part of endorphin receptors have been destroyed)"
Clearly these sistas have the case of "destroyed receptors" for the endorphins known as B.S.. 

It is sad but true that there is a high level of selfishness that is contained within the social and intimate relationships among our people who are seeking long term partnerships.  A woman indeed better be on the defensive lest she be used by those who have mastered telling her what she wants to hear to get what he wants.  No telling what background that the "stud" who is seeking her attention comes from.
  • How was his own consciousness about how to treat a lady imprinted by his own father's example?
  • What is his temperament which might allow him to endure in a ups and downs of long term relationship or quit when the goings gets rough?
  • Is there a person in his shell when the sex stops and the management of their responsibility becomes the dominate product of their relationship together? 
To be clear there are female versions of these very same flaws as well.

The Sistas Are Ready To Check Out

As I read the posts in the blog article I tried to make note of the logistical impossibility for Black females to separate themselves from Black males.  If you think that this nation has illegal immigration problems - just imagine how we could set up a system by which the problem elements of one gender is kept away from another.  Clearly this is not workable.

The more rationale response is for these Black Sistas to consider the totality of the system in which these "problem" Black males receive their social inculcation which results in their present flawed state.  Whatever "rites of passage" that they have matriculated through has made them what they are today.  Who among "our leaders" has focused our attention on correcting this problem with the messages sent to our young males?  Are they focused more on the messages from the broader society - which is composed of "our enemies" or are the massages from those who have a more intimate and proximate relationship to them seen as more valuable as they are also more controllable?

Individually these women are on the look out for "fast talking brothers" who are only "trying to get into their pants" and are functionally "gone by the morning".  .  When the aggregate bunch of men that seek their attention have this as their primary intention then this provides evidence to a more systematic problem that exists.

It is time for the Black community in aggregate to take a look at the promises that have been made to us by the Black Establishment and their ideological joint-venture partners.  They too wanted "the goods" that we possess as a collective.  We now stand long past the "Fool me once, shame on me" stage.  We now must look at the body of individuals through which they romp as they continue to fall prey to these confidence men.

I am NOT making use of this social dysfunction to score POLITICAL points.  I am calling out the problem as being one where past POLITICAL and IDEOLOGICAL hijacking has lead to the manual inattention offered to the problems within.  There has never been a greater need to enforce the integrity of "Community Consciousness and State" - a notion that parallels the separation of "Church And State".  BOTH institutions are left corrupted when operatives from each collude.

The Needs Of The Black Woman

A female is typically quicker to come to the point of "bottom lining" their relationships because they have more at stake than the average man does.  Their need for relative stability, security and are bound by the all important constraint of time.  IF her goal is to produce a child with a suitable mate then there is a particular window within which she can operate as defined by her biological clock.  If she does produce a child with a mate and the relationship goes awry then she, on average, is likely to bear the brunt of the time and obligation in raising the child that she has birthed.   If the man's very presence is causing  more frustration than value add then the pressure is heightened.

In a society which liberalizes the enforcement of a male's responsibility to his family and his children - the female seeking stability is the primary loser.

The collection of individuals should not have to face these individual burdens in the context of a society that claims to be civilized OR in a community that claims to value their own.

Again I challenge people to step back from the individual, transactional considerations of the problems that have been articulated by these "sistas" and focus upon the big picture.  When we aggregate the impact to our community the damage to our relationships and societal outcomes is irrefutable.  The consequence is shown in the rate of stable and enduring relationships.

For so long we have been struggling to have the greater society show that they value our people equally, agreeing to certain policies as evidence of such.  In too many cases the intra-community valuation and intrinsic respect for ourselves fall far short of the expectations that are placed upon outsiders to our (virtual) community.  While there exists legal and legislative recourse to mitigate slights from the greater society - no such construct exists within.  There is no such thing as a "intra-community social contract" to enumerate the demand for 'cultural justice'.

Take Back The Black Community Cultural Consciousness

The enforced respect for certain foundational institutions that define our social order is a critical first step in the changed outcomes that we seek within.

For the duration of our community's existence in the Americas our people have had to STRUGGLE to fend off the aggression and oppression of external threats who stripped away our ability to express "self-determination".   Also in the past most efforts that branded themselves as "nationalistic" or "self-determination" movements had a central focus upon the enemy who our people had long struggled against.  It too was defined more by their defensive disposition than any ORGANIC COMPETENCY CREATION for our community.

The voices of the Black females that I heard on the blog that is linked up above were akin to them rejecting the "Fist Held High In The Air" from their male partner who attempted to explain to her why he is short on his portion of the rent this month.  During her youth when her "endorphin receptors" were more open to stimulation by various opiates such redirection attempts worked to appease her.  Unfortunately now "the rent is too damned high........................." for her to accept such foolishness from her life partner.

We need to focus upon the present fact that all of the critical HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTIONS are in the hands of "favorable people" that we have promoted into power.  Eugene "Bull" Conner is long dead.  He no longer has any power over the key institutions where we live in our highest concentrations.

More important than the mere presence of a the bricks and mortar of an INSTITUTIONAL BUILDING is the engineering and enforcement of a sound LOGISTICAL PLAN which can be erected upon all who desire to eat the fruits that will be produced at harvest time.  The truth is that the hijackers operate in the void that is created per the lack of a logistical plan.  Theirs is the most evident moving vehicle that passes through town.   It is now time to regulate and enforce the integrity of any and all movements that are claimed to be "community migration movements".

A LOGISTICAL PLAN makes accurate inventory of the resources that you have at your disposal, where you need to move them to, the time and energy limitations and then the repetitive tasks that must be performed for the "movement" that is also evident in our present consciousness can be transformed into DIRECTIONALLY ACCURATE movement.

More than anything else - there is a need for strong and uncompromised voices to rise up and protest against the high level of variance that exists between the course that has been postulated at the start of the journey and where they presently stand.

Attempting To Understand The Discrepancy In The Relative Responses

There is a pattern of behavior that is unmistakable.

When it comes to reacting to threats that imperil the interests of the the Black community that emanated from a specific region of the nation - the Black leadership made it clear that "THEY can't do this to us"as they doggedly stood up against the force that was molesting our interests as a community.  They used all available resources in:

  • The Courts
  • The Political Domain
  • The Law Enforcement Resources
  • Academic Forums
  • News Media
  • Platforms For Public Debate
To eradicate the force that caused our bodies to bleed both our hope and blood.

The region was easily discernible as a key threat.  The occupants within made it clear what they thought about "us".  The teeth that they showed was no smile hiding a clandestine snarl.

Today Hot Zone Is Treated Very Differently

I have stated previously that when I consume the "black and white" film footage about this nation's brutal past which it comes to Black people I am more thankful that I don't have to suffer from this unmitigated oppression more than I see any benefit in "putting on their shackles", feigning my connection per my ability to relate to the torrent which worked against them.  No lashes that they suffered scar my body or my brain.   For MY ancestors - this is the hope that they projected upon me - their representative of the future.

As I watch the footage of those who today provide a narrative of what our people suffered from in the past I notice a very strange correlation to the assaults that they spoke of which prompted their action:

  • Unrelenting violent attacks upon our people
  • Academic Channeling which destroys our young people's potential
  • Government Institutions that are ineffective

I Must Disagree With Dr John McWhorter's Assessment Of Malcolm X As A Stain On History

In his column "Taking Out My Eraser", Dr John McWhorter articulates why he wishes that a certain list of 10 individuals had never graced the pages of history. He includes Muslim minister Malcolm X in on this list.

I was actually stunned by this inclusion and thought of a long list of other unsavory characters who's main injury was enacted upon our people in that they did so with mass complicity from Black people.

With all due respect the late Senator Ted Kennedy would be at the top of my list.  He was the ANTI-Malcolm X.

Brother Malcolm showed Black people that we were "100% Equal Human Beings", both worthy of respect and REQUIRED TO BE RESPECTFUL by living up to certain standards of living and disciplined behavior.  Ted Kennedy's ideology told Black people that AMERICA OWED US a certain amount of entitlements because we as "The Least Of These" are deserving of this "uplift" just as anyone else who's main qualification is our proximity to the "fish distribution service".

Malcolm X built up many Black people.
The theories held by Senator Ted Kennedy has confiscated an immerasurable quantity of 'Black Consciousness' - effectively putting our consciousness in play for the benefit of politicians and ideologues instead of in service to our ORGANIC DEVELOPMENT requirements as a community.

Malcolm X was a necessary "role player" for his day.
He represented the "Unbought / Unsold Resolve" that stood behind the "Integrationalists" who wanted to work through the system - giving "the system" TIME to change via its own machinations.

The video clip above is masterful. The interviewer attempts to bind "Malcolm Little" to the machinations of America. By pointing out how Black Americans actually received their "given names" - IF this interviewer was intending to be totally transparent he would be forced to acknowledge the human injustice that was done to "people like Malcolm Little" at the hands of this system instead of expecting them to be "grateful" that they are "allowed" to live in this place with the "benefits" that they already receive.

Clearly the interviewer has no interest in anything more than inspecting "Malcolm Little's behavior" and not what about the unjust conditions in America that is motivating him to be called "Malcolm X".

Don't get me wrong, I am a staunch opponent of gratuitous rhetoric where Black people are roused into an angry disposition for no other reason than "ideological unity". Indeed there are some elements of Malcolm X antics and character during his development as a person (and even Marcus Garvey) which his contemporaries found disturbing. A radio talk show host noted how both Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr had fluctuating poll numbers - even among Black people - during various intervals of their lives. They were all consummately human.

Malcolm X is clearly a brilliant man and a worthy leader.  During his time in the Nation Of Islam thousands of Black people were made to clean up their lives and live with a greater sense of purpose.  In as much as there is no organization without a bit of duality - indeed - at times their "Black Nationalism" keyed in upon hatred of White people per the resentment of how Black people were treated.  They also were effective at developing "organic community competencies" within the band of people who have taken up their mantle - dropping their "slave name" and adopting an "X" instead.

As a frequent reader of "The Final Call" newspaper today - this oracle of the NOI would be improved if they stripped out all of the "National Newspaper Publisher's Associated" syndicated contributors who are more interested in talking about the "American Political Domain" with the ultimate benefit of the Democratic Party and instead of the fortification of the "Community Cultural Consciousness & Competency Development Domain".   The original writings of Elijah Muhammad filling up their newspaper - even if they had to shrink it down to a one page newsletter is a far better representation of what this "Black consciousness" organization should stand for than what is expressed in a good portion of the third party articles added to give the paper some girth.

Malcolm X does not deserve to be on Dr McWhorter's list of "people who should have never been born".  He was a necessary counterbalance.

  • The Liberal Intergrationalist Dr King
  • The Conservative "Civil Rights Movement Critic" George S. Schuyler
  • The "Fight The Power" Malcolm X
This triumvirate worked in balance to bring us where we are today.
Today's Black community needs to now "fight the present Black establishment power" to whip them into shape - Black people continue to be murdered and assaulted at above normal rates.  Only the people doing the slashing of the Black throat has changed.
