The subject: The Racialist Memo sent out in Atlanta suggesting that all Blacks should get behind a Black candidate and avoid losing the mayoral seat to a White.
[quote] bloggers from the black conservative right have their own view on the issue and memo.
I am honored.
I am the "Black Conservative Right"!!!
I noticed, however, that you keyed in upon the "Negro Removal Project" where the projects were torn down yet you missed 2 key points.
1) The Atlanta Housing Authority is run by Democrats and they coordinate their efforts with the Administration of Atlanta. IF there was a conspiracy - your favored party and ideology has blood on their hands.
2) I am happy that you referenced my blog post. I really am. I am disappointed that you did not make note of my suggested means of ANALYZING the benefit of these "Black Mayoral Administrations" upon the people.
I am not one who believes that a mere "Black Face In A High Place" benefits the Black community. It may cause it to have pride in this one person. The true test of the benefit resides in a view at the periphery.
Ironically the letter that started all of this pointed out that the poor communities in the ATL remain poor even after the machine has retained power. Sadly Atlanta has too many "Black people crying on the news" to rest on its laurels that it is a safe place for our people.
I challenge you to adopt a measurement frame work of:
* Safe Streets
* Quality Schools
* Thriving Local Economies
* Healthy Lifestyles
as the "Black Permanent Interests". Allow this to trump any ideological or partisan considerations and hold everyone accountable to them.
