Proving once again: You have a choice when dealing with some Black folks:
- Be well liked and tell them what they want to hear
- Be hated but tell them the painful truth
Lauren - now that the response from Filled Negro have provoked me to actually READ INTO your comments I am even more concerned about you.
[quote]Don't forget how Prez. O shut down AG Eric Holder last year when he called Americans "Cowards" for running away from real dialogue on Racial Discrimination.[/quote]
I agree with this one. If the 11% of WHITE FOLKS in Alabama who voted for Obama did so for RACIST reasons then most assuredly we can't be COWARDS about inspecting why 96% of Black folks voted to give the MACHINE that already controls their communities which they are grieving about a PROMOTION.
Since than Racist behavior from KKK-related organizations has risen to levels only previously seen in the 1950's, 1960's & early 1970's.[/quote]
You are indeed correct Lauren.
STRANGE FRUIT is dangling all around us. Except these new KLAN-LIKE organizations never were Boy Scouts and thus never learned how to tie a know. Thus they just SHOOT BLACK PEOPLE on the streets during their Pirate Attacks. Besides the trees that are in the urban areas have their trunks to HIGH. You know after years of pruning so that delivery trucks can drive by - "Black on Black Lynching" is logistically unfeasible.
So while I am appreciative of Prez. O's election, there is MORE work to be done because its obvious the struggle is far from over.[/quote]
You just VERBALLY hung a "Mission Accomplished" sign over the head of Obama.
Let me ask you Lauren: THE NEXT TIME some Negro seeks to translate your ELATION into affirmative VOTING action - are you going to express more SKEPTICISM? What ERNEST MONEY will you demand prior to yielding yourself as such?
[quote]However today's mission sadly lacks such Active, Bold Leaders as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Angela Davis and...The Black Panthers.[/quote]
(I just let out a sigh of frustration as I read these words above)
Lauren - Lets look at CHICAGO.
Cook County Jail - both INMATES and JAILER are Black. WHO is Martin King Jr GOING TO PROTEST AGAINST?
Black people getting MURDERED like Tupelo MS 1918. WHO is Malcolm X going to protest against?
Chicago Public schools - 87% Black and Hispanic. Graduates only 52.9% of them. What is Angela Davis going to say to the rank and file who ELECTED THE DAMNED SCHOOL BOARD!!!!!????? VOTE HARDER next time?
Gangs providing a family connection that many don't have at home. Is the Black Panthers going to start a membership drive offering Tattoo Removal of all gang signs?
DO YOU SEE LAUREN - THE INFINITE UNIVERSE OF YOUR "STRUGGLE" HAS DOUBLED BACK ON ITSELF!!!! The tail lights that you are CHASING AFTER in your front window are actually upon THE CAR THAT YOU ARE DRIVING.
Doesn't it feel GRAND???
Lauren - why should a rational Black person ALLOW those who have orchestrated this VICTORY to DEFINE THE TERMS OF THE NEXT INTERVAL of time for our community?
Where is the DEBRIEFING for the last INTERVAL - what worked, what failed?
* Did their take over of our SCHOOLS lead to SCHOLARSHIP?
* Did their take over of our COMMUNITIES lead to SAFETY?
* Did their imposition of their own economic theories and labor justice make us more GAINFULLY EMPLOYED and ECONOMIC INDEPENDENT?
Lauren - BY WHAT BASIS are you MAKING YOUR EVALUATION?
Does it even stand up to the basic level of scrutiny for its own transparency?
[quote]This is where Field comes in.[/quote]
Filled Negro - when I come to Philly I am going to shake your hand. Let me have that recipe for your "chum sauce". It works.
Let's face it, how many Blogs embody the type of Intellect and Raw Soul needed to awaken not just Black America, but Minority America as a whole?
I will admit there are a few Blogs that come close but Field's is definitely an original which cannot be substituted by any others.[/quote]
AWAKEN US TO WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????
That despite holding more "Minority Communities" the BATTLE RESIDES OUTSIDE?
That the WHITE MAN in tube socks sitting in Montana with a US Robotics dial modem is a bigger THREAT than the Street Pirates who car jacked 4 Morehouse students?
FILLED NEGRO is your new "BLANK CANVAS" for you to DRAW YOUR DREAMS UPON Lauren - now that Obama's canvas has no more bare space upon it.
(Thrasher - I guess I am jealous of Filled Negro. The POWER of his chum which has some hallucinogens in it. )
Especially Psuedo Activists Bloggers looking for fame.[/quote]
Lauren coined the term PSEUDO-ACTIVISTS. "Fake Activists". Feigning injury and then running after the assailant.
Just like a few Tea Party protesters ushered in a New Persuasive, Political Movement last year,Field Negro's prose via his Blog is also promoting and ushering in the concept or ideology of "Urban Politricks for the New Millenium".[/quote]
WHAT FORCE controls the POLITICS in these urban areas Lauren?
Please don't forget about your Minority readers who currently live in the South where Extreme Racism appears to be getting worse.
(North Carolina 2010)[/quote]
You now have the ability to watch full episodes of "Gangland" on the Internet. When it comes to South Carolina and North Carolina they did NOT feature the "Red Shirts Gang Of 2010". Instead they went to Durham and they went to Columbia SC and focused on the STREET PIRATE GANGS and how they are attacking the BLACK COMMUNITY.
Are you SURE that there is not a BLACK STREET PIRATE underneath that Klansmen's hood? If that WHITE BOY can wear a black mask surely some Negro knows how to get an old bed spread out of the linen closet and cut some holes in it.
"Violence is Black children going to school for 12 years and receiving 6 years' worth of Education".
IGNORANCE is when these DAMNED SCHOOLS have been taken over by FAVORABLE PEOPLE after having WON their struggle and yet they don't fulfill the PROMISES MADE to Black people but instead seek WHITE FOLKS to integrate the schools with so that the Black can learn.
"As Legal Slavery passed, we entered into a permanent period of Unemployment and Underemployment from which we have yet to emerge".
You were no doubt in the NAACP Children's Auxiliary - weren't you Lauren?
Do you see how PASSIVE Bond's words are? Whereas Detroit, Trenton, Baltimore and Rochester New York were THRIVING urban centers, powerful enough to ATTRACT BLACK PEOPLE FROM THE SOUTH for gainful employment - when the STRUGGLE was WON - those who now controlled the cities implemented their own policy regime.
After this victory Lauren there is abundant UNEMPLOYMENT. Note how Bond and other Progressive-Fundamentalist are forced to FIGHT AGAINST the "Consumers of Labor" with the goal of PROTESTING THAT JOBS MIGHT BE CREATED.
NEVER will they have to own up for the vacation of the jobs which many of their policies had triggered.
I am trying to get into your head Lauren. (I am serious at this point).
AT WHAT POINT DOES THE FORCES THAT ARE FAVORABLE TO YOU BECOME THE ESTABLISHMENT PER THEIR CONTROL AND THUS YOU BEGIN TO EXPECT OUT OF THEM THE PRODUCTION OF THE STANDARD OF LIVING THAT YOU ARE CONSTANTLY STRUGGLING FOR?
How do you justify having protested in the past against the occupant of a seat of power and now with that same seat in favorable hands you walk PAST HER on your way to struggle against some other seat in the hierarchy?
Did that ORIGINAL SEAT become INFERIOR? Or have you reduced EXPECTATIONS upon its present occupant? What about the characteristics of this present occupant caused such reduction Lauren?
Is it possible that you are mistaking MANAGEMENT for "STRUGGLE"? A struggle can attract a large crowd behind you. They can render INDICTMENTS but never have to own up to their own faults. They retain the MORAL HIGH GROUND and project from there.
I am struggling to understand how the present dimensions afford you the thought that your SALVATION resides in fighting against EXTERNAL forces rather than guiding the HUMAN RESOURCES that are within your domain to live to a higher standard.
Lets attempt to qualify your claims.
It seems that you and other Progressive-Fundamentalists are of the view that "Anti-Black RACISM" is a more prevalent attribute of White Conservatives.
For me as a Black Conservator - I see the twin sister of "Black Inferiority" as contemptuous. You see not only is "Assumed Black Inferiority" marinated through many of the policies that the White Progressive-Fundamentalist seeks to hoist upon society - the Black Progressive-Fundamentalist is good at transacting upon his own inferiority. As long as there is a profit to be made at the end of the exchange the "Black Quasi-Socialist Progressive-Fundamentalist Racism Chaser" has no problem being the poster child for a being who is in a damaged state.
Here is what I don't understand about those of you how key in upon the Tea Party being the modern day instantiation of WHITE SUPREMACY:
When we translate what they have done to negatively impact Black people in the past 2 years - it is not the physical assaults or lynching that you can point to. INSTEAD it is the threat that the entitlement rights which have been advanced by Progressive-Fundamentalists like Ted Kennedy might be taken away. In his pursuit of these entitlements Kennedy chose the race of people who's leaders accept the label "The Least Of These". It is not that Kennedy and other White liberals are "helping Blacks". Instead they are HELPING "The Least Of These" - of which a portion of them are Black.
I challenge you to detail for me the COMPETENCIES that have been developed among the people who have acquiesced to these policies which seek to allow them to live at a standard of living that their own aggregate PRODUCTIVITY would ill-afford them to live.
In your focus upon the notion that "Tea Party = RACISM" you fail to make note of the anti-matter that your positions afford Black people as we are distracted.
On this one we are in rare agreement.
I had printed the article out after my best friend in the world RiPPa had posted it last week and read it last night during a banquet last night in downtown Atlanta in a room full of wealthy Negros.
Filled Negro I contrasted the focus upon the power of the White Man's whip from slavery against what I was looking at - the "100 Black Women Of Atlanta's" annual scholarship ball. I have to tell you Filled Negro - they discounted your home land. While one "descendant of slavery" won an auction for an $8000 trip to Paris, bidding $4,800 in this "Bush Recession" and Cayman Islands went for $3,100 it was strange that Jamaica was only $2,200.
Think about it Filled Negro. FRANCE the nation that gave us HAITI is in 2010 a tourist destination for Negroes who are wealthy. Whereas the majority of the Blacks in Cuba will never make it to Philly because their GOVERNMENT will not allow them to go........there is a band of elite Blacks who reside in 'the Belly Of The Beast' - their former Slave Colony who travel and stay at the finest accommodations.
In effect, Filled Negro, they EXIT the "belly of the beast" on a jet plane and then willingly enter the airport of a DIFFERENT historical oppressor.
Still - the best way to get Black folks passionately debating is NOT to talk about how the PUBLIC SCHOOLS OF TODAY house the Negro leaders, doctors, managers, and those who are skilled with sociology to craft the Black Community circa 2050.
I would be remiss if I failed to mention horticulturalists. You see Filled Negro in listening to NPR's "Tell Me More" I learned that there are "FOOD DESERTS" in Urban America and thus there is a growing FOOD JUSTICE movement. Broccoli and Green Beans over Big Mac Value Meals....."YES you can upside it for me Sir. Throw some catchup and salt in with that as well."
Just thing about the vision Filled Negro. The CIVIL RIGHTS FIGHTER of yesterday which got the Klan to stop molesting us will be the URBAN CROP GROWER of tomorrow who harvests foods in the fight against the KILLERS: Obesity, Diabetes and Renal Failure. Instead of "Sit Ins" he will need to master crop rotation". Instead of "Violating White's Only" sitting rooms he will need to figure out how to use organic concoctions to keep pests away. I have no shame in saying Filled Negro - I have dealt with a roach or two while growing up in Philly. If they are ravenous inside of the house I can just image what they'll do to a garden outside of the house if there are not sufficient human brain power pitted against it to refrain it from eating the tomatoes.
Sadly, Filled Negro, though THIS IS THE PRIORITY while will develop our FUTURE - the way one get's "Street Cred" among some Blacks is to prove that he has NOT GOTTEN OVER THE PAST which he can't change.
When HISTORY is used as a "self-chumming" element to draw Negro anger we must evaluate the OPPORTUNITY COSTS as compared with that which we SHOULD BE FOCUSING UPON but are not.
[quote]CF as God is my witness, you are the most relentless, determined Tom I have ever witnessed.
Do you ever visit any white blogs?[/quote]
Let me TRANSLATE that for you because I understand what your perverted view of "White" is.
I go to:
* Economic Policy Institute (left)
* Fox Business
* Concord Coalition
* American Enterprise Institute
To you many of them are "the Klan"
because they are warning of the disaster of centralized dependency upon the federal government.
If you were a serious man you'd go to http://www.iousathemovie.com/ and realize the gross flaws that you strategy will inflict in due time.
It seems to me that white folks should know that they have such a devoted servant such as you.[/quote]
YOU ARE RIGHT WHITEBOWIESTEVE.
I SERVE WHITE FOLKS!!!
I opened up a shoe shine store and put a "Whites Only" sign on the front. As "The White man" walks in the front door my mouth opens and all of my teeth are showing. I give him a warm greeting letting him know how much I appreciate his business.
All the while I am watching him.
What started out as a $8 shoe shine as I listen to him run down Black Street Pirates turns into a very profitable affair.
* I note that his heels are run down uneven and I send him to the Black chiropractor in Suite 101.
* I note that his pants have a tear in it and I send him to the Hispanic tailor in Suite 102.
* I see that he could use a hair cut and I send him to Suite 103 for the White lady to give him a cut and a shave
* I note that his car was sounding loud and in need of a tune up so as he is doing all of his other personal care a brother with a garage around the corner picks up his car and does the tune up, car wash and detailing
You see WhiteBowieSteve I SERVICE THE WHITE MAN indeed. It is very profitable for me and for OTHERS in the office park that I own.
YOU and that White man saw a "Shoe Shine Boy" when you both walked in. YOU spat on me and called me a "Tom" as you thought about throwing a brick through my window and form a protest that I was a RACIST, not letting you in.
That WHITE MAN who originally saw a shoe shine boy left seeing TWO THINGS
1) That tall Black man who he came to for ONE point of service is actually a pretty shrewed business man. He ADDED VALUE in one convenient space.
2) He saw his BANK STATEMENT at the end of the month and noted that the eco-system of services that I offered to him INDEED COSTS MONEY but I gave him a fair price.
HE THEN CALLED a bunch of his WHITE FRIENDS and told him about the Black Man in the office suite right up the street.
He said of me to his friends "That Nigger is pretty sharp and I am pleased with his work".
You know what Steve - Since I learned that I CAN'T CONTROL what a person might SAY of me in a private conversation I instead choose to focus on CONTROLLING WHAT I CAN CONTROL. With this disposition others around me profit greatly because I didn't MISLEAD them down the RACISM CHASING path - where what this WHITE MAN SAID triggers my focus and consumes my time.
Mr Bookman :
With all due respect - You know not what the HECK you are talking about.
Michael Steele is an operative for the Republican Party. As a Black man I have a bigger question for my fellow Black Americans: "What does the Democratic Party, which controls every voting district where Black people are 35%+ of the voting base - have to do to LOSE OUR VOTE?"
Mr Bookman - you fail to make note that certain operatives who present themselves as "Black Leaders" are also "Democrats who are Black". What interest do they have in "splitting the Black vote"?
In fact you would do well to research Dr Ronald Walters who WARNS against this very thing.
Think about it Bookman:
* Fannie Lou Hamer broke down the doors of the Democratic National Convention in 1964 demanding a seat despite the "racist Democrats" who did not want her in due to her race
* Blacks demand access to subdivisions next to White Republicans
* Blacks demand access to exclusive golf clubs
* Blacks demand access to exclusive schools
* Blacks demand access to executive suites
Do you find it odd, Mr Bookman that the ONLY venue that certain Blacks are motivated to avoid is the one venue IF ACCESSED is said to diminish the Black voting power.
How many times have you heard the news that only 11% of Whites in Alabama voted for Obama as proof of their RACISM? Yet liberals like you in the media see 96% of Blacks voting for Obama and you say that it is not because of their racism but because the Republican Party is intolerant.
Look at the conditions in these Democratic controlled communities and schools and then you tell me why the entrenchment is so?
To clarify my previous post:
Michael Steele is an operative for the Republican Party. He is going to say what he needs to say to get VOTES. You can trust that Steele has the primary intentions of helping Black people AS LONG AS IT IS THROUGH the Republican Party as Sharpton, Jackson, Lowery and Obama seek to help Black people - as long as it if for their party.
Mr Bookman as we look at the results that have been obtained WHERE THERE ARE NO EVIL REPUBLICANS to thwart Black people - CHICAGO ILLINOIS being the reference model for having NO Republican representative nor Republican majority legislative body - at the city/county/state and now FEDERAL level - we see the truth. While there is great angst felt by many Blacks against the GOP - areas where there is a total Democratic fortress DOES NOT assure Black prosperity.
* Chicago graduates only 52.9% of its students - though 87% of them are Black and Hispanic
* The streets of Chicago run with "Negro Blood". IF the South as a "Killing Field for Black People" needed intervention - what say you of Chicago and other places? (The liberals went after the White Racists who killed us Black people in the past. With Black on Black crimes you now blame socio-economic conditions that MADE THEM do it)
Do you see Mr Bookman? The answer to our people's problems DOES NOT reside in the "American Political Domain".
Too often the solutions that the Democratic left leave our people damaged from the experience. Note the condition of the people after the housing policies of Bowman Homes in the ATL or "Cabrini Green " in Chicago caused them to go into the 'real world" which they were never provided with increased competency over the years.
I believe that the twin brother of "White Supremacy" is "Assumed Black Inferiority". While many accept the notion that the GOP is the party of "White Supremacy" it is also true that the policies of the Democratic Party assume "Black Inferiority". In as much as you don't want to implement a strict and regulated social order per your own liberalism - when it comes to implementing the government initiatives to rectify the situation with "the Least of These" (poor Blacks and Whites) your inability to have them to be the primary force in their own salvation assures that perpetual generations of people who receive the "Progressive Treatment" will have their competency stunted as such.
The murderous rampage started after James Larry, a converted Muslim, looked to the sky and didn't see the moon or the sun before dawn Wednesday, a family member says.
"That meant Allah told him to take his family," said the woman, who asked that her name not be printed.
The carnage has been front-page, top-of-the-newscast fare. It is as if a veil has been lifted and the city can now see the devastation that should have been evident all along. Ward 8, the jurisdiction that includes the church Obama attended and the site of the mass shooting, has an unemployment rate of 28.5 percent and a poverty rate of 40 percent. It has the highest percentage of single-parent households in the city, its public schools are perennially troubled and its streets are host to frequent turf battles among violent gangs.
But soon, all that will be forgotten -- just as the same kind of despair goes unremembered in similar neighborhoods in Atlanta, Detroit, Baltimore, Philadelphia and every other major American city. Entrenched black poverty, with all its causes and implications, barely makes a ripple in the public debate these days.
"No matter where you are in the city, unemployment is a crisis," council member Kwame R. Brown (D-At Large), who drafted the legislation, said at a news conference. Though the unemployment rate is only 3.2 percent in Ward 3, which includes Friendship Heights and Chevy Chase, and 5.9 percent in Dupont Circle's Ward 2, according to November data from the D.C. Department of Employment Services, it is high elsewhere in the city -- reaching 28.5 percent in Ward 8, which includes Anacostia.
"It's a citywide problem, one that we need to tackle together," he said.
Christian preachers Granny and Mellaneous The Christian Journalist:
Do you see that you pull out biblical versus for ME yet the non-believer Filled Negro is allowed to play the Flava Flav hype man role, NEVER being asked to sup with you in communion?
My dear Granny:
That camel through the eye of a needle is talking about the RICH MAN who loves his MONEY.
It is not against God to BE RICH. It is only those who love their material more than they love their God that is problematic.
[quote]But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition[/quote]
GRANNY - notice that in your piousness you NEVER saw the picture of TIGER WOODS in this verse.
[quote]If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother:[/quote]
Granny - I spent the last week with a good friend who is an "Anti-America American" and a self described COMMUNIST. He loves Fidel and Che'. The USA is the devil around the world - he says.
* When it came to the poor Black man who gave us a horse tour - I gave the man a $10 peso tip - my friend rebuked me saying "I already paid him. Why are you giving him more money?!!!". This despite the guy showing us the big back of crackers for his kids to eat. We thought the crackers were for his horse. My friend had no problem given money to the bartenders for his own alcohol though.
* When two young prostitutes came to our table in a restaurant (NO I DID NOT DO IT WITH THEM!! There is a swam of them with an eye for Americans.) I bought them dinner and they added cigarettes to MY TAB. My friend told me that I was being played. I should not buy them SHYT!!! For me - I was making observations of them and the track that this society had them placed upon.
I learned that 3 years of Spanish from 20 years ago in school had failed me.
GRANNY I fed them but did not EXPLOIT THEIR BODIES. My friend saw prostitutes. I saw two young ladies. (Ok, Ok. I saw their breasts as well.)
The funny thing about your piousness Granny (and Mellaneous) is that in your own "Mall Cop" way (Mall Cop = those who focus on suspects because of their BIGOTRY while the real thieves get away) you, in truth, have SUPERIOR expectations of ME, who is a critic of you and your ideology.
The indictment against you comes from observations of how you handle those who VIOLATE YOUR RULES yet you remain SILENT against them. This is because THEY are silent in their scrutiny or opposition to you.
AS LONG AS I AM the "salt on the back of the progressive-fundamentalist SNAILS" you all will show your discomfort of me.
Show me the "Jesus" in YOUR HEART.
Mayor John Thornton seemed like an unlikely candidate to wind up dead on his own town's streets.
Thornton was known to cruise Washington Park in the early morning hours to make sure police were out doing their jobs, officers said. And he knew just about everyone in town and would help just about anyone in need, they said.
Thornton's murder early Thursday remains a mystery, as police investigate why and how someone got inside the mayor's white sedan about 5:45 a.m. and fatally shot him.
Thornton, 52, was behind the wheel of his car when he was shot twice in the chest. Washington Park police said he was headed home from his job as an overnight-shift foreman at the Metro East Sanitary District.
After being fatally wounded, Thornton crashed into a tree at 48th and Caseyville streets. Witnesses told police that the killer jumped out of the car and into a red Chevrolet Impala with someone already inside and fled.
When police arrived at the scene, Thornton was unresponsive in the front seat. He was later pronounced dead at Kenneth Hall Hospital in East St. Louis.
Washington Park police said Thornton appeared to be the victim of a random robbery. But the Illinois State Police, which was handed the investigation, refused to discuss any details concerning motive or circumstance.
