I don't expect these words to get past the moderator so I made a shadow copy here.
A new entry to my list of "favorite" blogs has been discovered: 3 Chics Politico.
After having the serial "Ugher" named Southern Girl tearing apart my arguments with the most succinct and powerful refutation that nearly brings me to tears of shame: "UGH" - I was forced to click through to this person's site in order to understand if she can touch type any more than these 3 letters.
Needless to say I was not surprised. This was yet another "light bulb in the night" for "Progressives who are Democrats who are Black" to flutter around, feeding on the brilliance of their "self chum".
[quote]November 2, 2010- VOTE DEMOCRATIC![/quote]
As I scrolled down your 40 responses I saw yet another gathering spot for some of my old friends. (Rikyrah and Granny [I still love you Granny and there is NOTHING you can do about it])
I also saw a picture of Rev Joseph Lowery. Its interesting that while the sight of my viewpoints brings forth an "Ugh" from you - the sight of Rev Lowery brings forth a vision of the street that is named after him in Atlanta as a frequent site for the violent assault or murder of a Black person.
You see, SouthernGirl - Rev Lowery stated publicly about 12 years ago that if the area of Vine City was to take down all of the street signs that pay tribute to Confederate Generals that this would bring forth a spirit of PRIDE in the community as the HEROES of Black people were hung up high. He got a street named after him as a result of his plea. Unfortunately, SouthernGirl - this merely means that when an assault or a car chase happens in THIS - one of the 4 "Most Dangerous Zipcodes In The Nation" - they no longer say "Ashby Street" they now say "Rev Joseph E Lowery Blvd".
This is symbolic of what "Black Politics" has become. SYMBOLIC. We are to "worship the pictures on the wall" in the government building instead of being able to walk down the streets of our communities and see abundance evidence of COMPETENCY DEVELOPMENT and not just "Progressive Mission Accomplished" signage.
Does it seem strange to you that you APPEAR to focus more on the "terroristic threat" against President Obama - the most well protected man in the WORLD (Notice I did not say "Black man") - yet you seek to sell us on the notion that we Black folks should "VOTE DEMOCRAT ON NOVEMBER 2ND" when in so many cases around the nation the #1 Permanent Interest of Black people is being violated: SAFE STREETS.
Should I look past these truths for the sake of "Ideological Unity Enforcement", struggling harder to beat these conservatives that are working to "hurt Obama" politically?
At what point do you take a step back and demand an inventory of what you are getting out of this entire "Malcolm X Political Football Game" besides the honor of knowing that you now have a starting position?
CERTAINLY you know more than two phrases:
2) Vote Democratic On November 2nd
The people of DC, Chicago, Detroit, Philly, Baltimore and Atlanta have been doing just as you have recommended for years. They are waiting for their benefit. They just might start working to accomplish their goals LOCALLY.
