I have come to accept that some people will read another person's viewpoint and have the same concerns about them as I do, while others will wholeheartedly accept this other person's views.
The key to my strategy is to move beyond the individual "ideological preferences" of myself or my frequent debate adversaries and instead promote some IMMUTABLE PERMANENT INTERESTS for us BOTH to submit to.
A Black Man's View: On Obama's New Strength After Shooting Osama Bin Laden In The Face: How's My Ass Taste Bitches?
I have already yielded that there are masses of Black people who live vicariously through the life experiences of President Obama.
In as much as they see HIS ENEMIES as THEIR ENEMIES it comes as no surprise that they will place their own PERMANENT INTERESTS on forbearance as they stand in the foxhole with Obama and sacrifice their bodies for all incoming missiles from Republican Tea Party militia members.
The key point that one understands after taking a sampling of the masses of Black people who think like this is that ANY one who once thought that the agenda for Black people was to simply get 'favorable people' into the SEATS OF POWER in key INSTITUTIONS - and then have them to govern these institutions - delivering the quality that we had been promised and anticipated. Instead of documenting the promises and then appraising the people they promoted into power for the RESULTS - they instead become VICARIOUSLY FUSED to the person and the machine that is erecting this power.
As this person and machine goes through the daily legislative and executive struggles - they lose sight of THEIR OWN INTERESTS and instead assume the interests of the MACHINE (Just as the great Malcolm X warned us against).
When having to choose between showing transparency in which they are forced to criticize their "Permanent Friend" over:
- 16.1% Black unemployment rate
- Wanton "Civil Rights Violations" against Black people that are not called "Civil Rights Violations" for no other reason than the common RACE of the assailant
- Schools/Communities of Adult mentors that are not delivering our children to the finishing that is required for us to live at a certain standard..........
- Black Unemployment
- Black Education
- Safe Black Communities
The ONLY thing that you can do in this case is to make sure that in your life you NEVER place yourself in a position in which you are made dependent upon them for your key resources.
