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.
