My Response - Slightly Redacted To Protect Those Who Did Not Agree To Have This Made Public
This is where you have my motivations 100% wrong.
I am NOT focusing on Barack Obama - with the intentions that you think.
He is the ** "President Of The United States" ** "Commander In Chief Of The US Military"** The Functional "Lead CIA Agent"** Must approve every "Economic Sanction" that the State Department initiates
This comes as the benefits of being "President Over The US Empire"
I am actually watching BLACK AMERICANS and how "President Obama On Stage" - allows them to live vicariously through Obama and the Democratic Party as most of us Black Americans fight what we have been told is WHITE SUPREMACY that has been manifest in the form of the Republican Party.
But wait - Brother xxxxxxxxx. What if this framing is not used to develop Black Americans but instead to disarm us from noting our lack of development (See the National Urban League - "State Of Black America Report 2014" - but instead to channel our "Black Consciousness" into fighting against an enemy that has been stood up before us? What if we are tricked into looking past our condition in Chicago, Philly, Detroit and Memphis after success in becoming a part of the 'establishment team" in power and instead to fight now at the national level?
What if you are being "Colonized" with an domestic imperialist movement and yet you don't even know it?
Notice when I make my statements I say: (The US Government And Not "Obama")
* The US Government ran a coup in Libya - which lead to instability in which the violence today is akin to Iraq and Syria. ( Do not say "Obama Ran A Coup In Libya) Do you not see that today Black Americans are not standing against "American coups" in Africa - they are looking at the "US House Republicans" who are trying to "Shame the Black President" over 4 dead White Americans in Benghazi. But do YOU see that none of the 'Afro-Centrists' who took "Black Studies Classes" at PITT and are knowledgeable about "European global conquest" are today speaking of the present bloodshed - in a once self-sufficient nation of Libya is now begging the United Nations to come in and help stop the killings from the fighting militias?
THIS AFFIRMS MY OBSERVATIONS.
* The US Government repudiated the "Cultural Self Determination" of the African nation of Uganda which said that "Homosexuality is not within our 'African Ancestral Culture" and put economic sanctions including blocking health care funding. (I am not debating "Gay Rights" - I am only focusing on a stand against "CULTURAL IMPERIALISM" ) After all of these decades condemning "European Colonialist Cultural Supremacy" that attacked many "African Rituals And Culture" - with Blacks in America having adopted the 'American cultural' vantage point - I heard nothing about 'Self Determination' for Uganda.
* My position all long with regard to "Obamacare" was that 60 years after the "Black Education Revolution" (ie: Brown v Board) instead of producing evidence that the "Struggle For Quality Education For Black People" was aligned with our needs for Health Care - and thus we produced sufficient doctors and other medical professionals to serve our people - it is clear that there is no such intent to develop our young people in this manner. I challenged everyone by asking "Will your consumer access to more 'Subsidized Healthcare In America' put you in a stronger position to officer help to other people in the 'Black Diaspora' who have only a fraction of the health care system that we have in America? Look at the Ebola crisis in West Africa. We have more Black people who purchased "DNA Ancestral Testing Kits" after watching Professor Henry Louis Gates on PBS than we have donating money to help as our people are terrorized by this pathogen.
I called out people who tried to justify "medical subsidies" for the poor in America by doing a fly over of South America and Africa, as they pointed to how European nations offered universal health care. There are 300 million people in the USA and over 1 billion in Africa. I saw a show that said that 47% of the expected population growth in the world will come on the African continent in the next 100 years. Why do you allow people to sell you entitlements in America by pointing to "Developed Nations" but looking past 1 billion people and considering what YOU are being equipped to do to help them?
I am not "Looking At Obama".
In truth I am looking at how the MIGHT of the "Office Of The President Of The United States" can be made to adopt the inferiority of "Black People" (ie: "Obama Is A Victim Of Racism") while the US Government continues to do what it has always done against "Nations Of Color" yet - its most strident opposition and "moral compass" (Black Americans) is lulled into no longer calling "American foreign policy" RACIST and Imperialist and White Supremacist - they instead have been tricked into reserving this for their domestic Republican enemy and their salvation through Politics.
When they are failed - they merely "Pray More" and donate to the offering plate.
Again xxxxxxx- Racism was classically defined as "Hatred For A People" and then the "Power" to impose your will against them.
Barack Obama is the first Black man in world history with the power to KILL ANOTHER HUMAN BEING as part of the authorship and execution of American Foreign Policy. He has not one once less power than the 43 White men who preceded him.
Yet in the vantage point of the Black American who is engaged in the (ignorant) political banter between these two parties and who projects his own sentiments of (Black) oppression upon the political vessel that they hope to defeat their enemy with - they would have you to believe that Obama is suffering from the same "oppression" that Michael Brown in Ferguson Missouri suffered at the hands of a White policemen.
The President controls the "DEA", The "Federal Bureau Of Prisons", the FBI and the CIA - all of the "Oppressors" that we still hear "Black Nationalist" talking about today as I listen in on their conversations.
Wrap your mind around that one and tell me if these two notions (in the two paragraphs above can stand together).
I see so many Black people say that the White Tea Party is motivated by hatred of a Black man and thus they protest him and try to make him fail. I assure you that many of them DO have racist sentiment and they do not wish to lose their "White Privilege".
What people are reluctant to focus upon is the motivations of the Black American in disarming themselves from the usual criticism of American policies against "Nations Of Color" and how within America, after 50 years of voting with the hopes that this, the grand prize of the Black President of the United States in power - Black people would receive more than just this PRIDE that most feel - but instead focus on measurable DEVELOPMENT, affirming what we originally went into politics for:
* Safe Communities* Education to Transform our Children into the Supporters Of Our 'Desired Standard Of Living"* Healthy Relationships / Health Lifestyles* The Ability To Employ Our People Productively So They Can Also Sell Their Talents For An Income* The Ability To Package This Knowledge Up And Help Other People Around The World.
So you see, xxxxx- I am not looking at Barack Obama as "a pawn in the game" - I am amazed at how much the average African American has been disarmed from his initial purpose for getting the "Right To Vote". WE (BLACK AND WHITE) ARE PAWNS IN THE GAME.
It is my view that this is not going to stop until internal leadership prevents the political operatives from having free access to our "Black Consciousness" - but instead having it focused on building up our own skills within our communities so that we can learn how to develop our people and then provide structural assistance to Black people outside of America - just as Kwame Ture' and W.E.B. Du Bois ultimately adopted as their mandate after departing from the grip of the American consumer and political trap.
