I notice that when Black people get trapped into the machinations of a "macro-issue" they can be as cold and callous as those who once did the same thing against our interests.
The Prometheus 6 blog attempts to take the governor of Arizona to task for "lying" about finding decapitated bodies in the Arizona desert. In doing so Prometheus yields the argument over IF there has been mass murders in the desert and instead he focuses on IF they actually had their head cut off.
I think that we can all agree that at times we all become so fixated in on the one-up-manship in favor of our own "side". At some point hairs can be split to a point were the person arguing as such is seen as cold and callus.
Prometheus - I have been silently reading your blog for a few weeks. I notice a pattern about your antics that should prove disturbing to you IF you were to take a step back and consider what your real agenda SHOULD be.
Instead of addressing the MURDER that the Arizona governor has documented in the desert you attempt to hammer her about her BEHEADING claims.
With all due respect (and I am not trying to be unfair to you) - Don't you recall that those who once stood against the rights of Black people made use of these same flippant antics by which the realistic concerns for the protection of Black people were blew off?
It would be akin to saying "Those Negroes said that men in white sheets came and grabbed a Black man out of his house. Our members all wear black robes. They are wrong about the color of our sheets".
Right beside the "Jan Brewer is making it all up" story that you focus upon is the claim "Those who are attacking Arizona while saying nothing about the murders along the border don't give a damn about the human beings because they are 'Stink'in Mexicans".
Can you tell me that the second story is any less legitmate than yours?
Mexican drug cartel killings near Nogales increase
Nogales, the main city in the region, which shares a border with the Arizona city of the same name, has had 131 murders so far this year, nearly surpassing 135 for all of 2009, according to a tally by the newspaper Diario de Sonora. That includes two heads found Thursday stuffed side-by-side between the bars of a cemetery fence.
