I bear no hard feelings at all against my good friend Filled Negro. I mean this in all seriousness.
I was truthfully surprised that he allowed me to post on his board and check his message and many of his posters as long as he did. He resisted such demands for banning people and deleting posts. I respect him for attempting to retain this policy. Though my friend is a serious ideologue he is not hatefilled as some of his blogging buddies. More on this later.
Here is the deal. Filled Negro's blog serves as a "self-chumming" distribution center for "Progressives who are Black". If you pay attention to his nightly releases - some time between 8:30pm and 11pm - my friend Filled Negro sorts through all of the news of the day and most typically chooses the story which can provoke the greatest amount of predictable response from his base. "Self-chumming" to stir up the fish is the best, most accurate description. When Michael Steele gets more posts than does Jim Clyburn, Michael Nutter, David Patterson, Bobby Rush, Barbara Lee, Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi combined - you know that something ain't right. Either the Black Conservative is SUPERIOR to the position of power that he holds OR there is some sort of agency in place. The content syndicate is on a mission that is beyond what appears on the surface.
I have no doubt at all that if indeed there is common understanding that a "Black Republican" can be a SELLOUT to the interests of the Black community that it is also the case that a "Black Democrat" towing the POPULAR line within the Black community can also be a sellout to our Permanent Interests. POPULARITY sometimes means group complicity. POPULARITY within itself does not prove EFFECTIVENESS or ACCURACY any more than the time when the masses believed the Earth was flat. The complicity of the "Democrat who is Black" is one where he has purchased into the notion that "What is good for the Democrat is good for Black people". No amount of real world evidence as seen where this machine has power over our community is not going to convince the ideological bigot otherwise. "Bigot" is used because it too is the best description of that which they are entrenched with.
Now there I come as a frequent poster who is on to his scheme and who confounds his propaganda attempt. I have two computers in front of me all day long as I work (yes I am doing my job none the less) so I am able to hold the line against what his base of posters would like to do: rant against Conservatives, Republicans, White Supremacy, Black Conservatives, Capitalism and Corporations.
This is not the first time that I have been invited to leave a "Progressive That Is Black" blog. Unlike some who I will list in a few minutes I have no hard feelings against my friend Filled Negro. As people see my antics (and yes I over do it at times with the posting) those who would normally fire off their shots and not have to bother defending their attacks begin to reduce their posting on the Progressive blog in question. It stands to reason that protecting his base of posters should indeed be far more important to my friend Filled Negro than retaining his posting policies and allowing me to continue my counter-actions.
Thus far I have been banned from:
- AfricanAmerica Blog - account canceled
- Brother Peace Keeper For Progressive Interests - shunted my posts off to their own area. (This has been handy since I have occasionally returned to that section to review the issues from 5 or more years ago)
- Average Brother - The Liberal Kappa - sent an e-mail warning to stop posting or all will be immediately deleted
- Soulbrother V 2.0 - upon seeing the Liberal Kappa had banned me admitted that he deletes my posts
- BET Uncut's "All White Jury Assembly" blog - put up what he called a "content filter" but in truth it was an "IP Address Filter" with MINE as the first entry (he has no idea how many IP addresses I have access to)
- KCNulan's Subliminal Thoughts - again an ego centric guy who doesn't like to be questioned
If I was willing to compromise my own views then I am sure that I could fit in with less of a caustic present at times. Instead when I articulate what is unquestioningly is a TRANSPARENT set of "Community Best Interests" and challenge others to steal it and integrate this model into their own appraisal of what the primary interests of our people that we should be discussing on these blogs - the battle for ideological supremacy supplants interests in operating while all are subordinated to this framework.
I have to admit that I will miss peeking to see what the "Self-Chum Of The Day" will be. The more I look and then see the replies that fail to inspect Filled Negro's agenda the more I will be inclined to jump back into the fray.
I feel unbound to a task in which I had to fight the fight against intellectual dishonesty. Not that everyone is as such. Far from it. I am far more accepting to the fact that people have the right to hold on to their own ideology than one might expect. I only ask that they defend their positions and - just as they ask their adversaries to do - don't allow their bigotry and the knowledge that their fellow travelers are not going to challenge them to cause people to advance fraudulent and malicious arguments.
The primary fraudulent question that has been repetitively asked of me is "What would 'Black Republicans' do if they had power over the Black community?
I am not a Black Republican.
Worse, it is fraudulent to consider a community that is addicted to the "blue pill" and then have the main drug pusher demand of me that I PROVE that my pill has the expected pharmacological impact upon the Black community.
A person that is really interested in the condition of the Black community would first demand that the Black community go cold turkey off of the concoction that they tacitly admit is not working per their question asked of me. If they were serious they would first seek more knowledge of their own "body" the nutrition that it needs to function . They'd seek "alternative medicine and treatment" solutions, showing willingness make the lifestyle changes that are necessary to accommodate a "healed state" of their body.
This type of consciousness is not found in the "Machine Connected Black Progressive" community. I have to acknowledge that all "leftist" are not connected to the Democratic Party and they will call them out when they need calling - just as Amy Goodman does on "Democracy Now". She is a committed leftist and won't compromise her values for anyone.
It is my opinion that my friend Filled Negro, AfroSpear and a few others that operate as operatives for their narrow ideological interests have enough of a following to bring forth the "Black Community Consciousness 3.0" that is going to be needed in our future. Unfortunately Republicans serve as more interesting counterpoints to their interests than does FAILED INSTITUTIONS WITHIN THE BLACK COMMUNITY. This is what they should be bringing awareness to. As it presently stands their "victory" where they are the last man standing in a place is the worst possible of outcomes. (See Detroit)
All of those political gains that have been made in the "American Political Domain" will need to be translated into actual benefit for the man on the street. Without the development of the COMPETENCY without our community to carry out these promises my friends, the propagandists will be forced to continue their mission of maintaining "BLACK UNITY" while falling short of placing us nearer to our "Community Permanent Interests". If your job is to put a Black face into power so that he/she can mismanage the government in equal measure as the White man before him - what exactly was your value add?
Time to move on.
From here on out I will call you "Field Negro" again.
One day I hope that you will retire all of the slave references. A people that define themselves on the foundation of slavery will never be able to reconnect with their conscious past before that time.
