As I printed out and read the article I actually am forced to BLAME the "Obama Fist Bump Press" - The Root.s Cynthia Gordy for KEEPING THE LINE OF QUESTIONS in a manner that was FAVORABLE TO REP LEWIS.
IN MY OPINION Ms Gordy is like the other fleet of YOUNG, BLACK - ideologically DRIVEN journalists. A VISIT TO THE WHITE HOUSE, or direct access to powerful elected officials make them STAR STRUCK.
They HAVE NOT YET defined the DIMENSIONS OF THE PROBLEM IN BLACK AMERICA - but still believe the FRAMING of it all - JUST AS MOST OTHER BLACKS ARE LEAD TO BELIEVE.
Thus when a person like Lewis or John Conyers - TWO POWERFUL MEN in the CONGRESS of TO-DAMNED-DAY - not of the days when Lester Maddox Of Georgia came to the House with an AX HANDLE................ARE STILL ALLOWED TO talk about "BACK IN THE DAY" as their SOURCE OF STRENGTH - and then weaslely claim that THE SAME SPIRIT OF HATRED AGAINST BLACKS are present AND THIS IS WHY THEIR OWN DISTRICTS ARE:
Ms Gordy DOESN'T YET have to wherewithal to see that HER JOB is not to TAKE NOTES as a Stenographer but to have some CONSCIOUNESS about the DIMENSIONS OF THE PROBLEM - PUSHING BACK on John Lewis in the process.
IF the "Freedom Riders" where to split up into 10 different cars and ride around Atlanta, with the Street Pirates knowing in advance that all 4 people in each car had a:
* $500 lodging stipend in CASH
I ASSURE YOU that 20% of those cars would be CARJACKED AT GUN POINT. (I wish I was making this up).
What we have is a question of VALUATION OF BLACK PEOPLE.
The WHITES of the past who attack us are more VALUABLE than the BLACKS TODAY - who grew up from our COMMUNITY'S PRESENT CONSCIOUSNESS who attack Blacks.
BY POINTING TO THESE PEOPLE TODAY and seeing the lost HUMAN RESOURCES - the blame would eventually get around to Lewis and other "Black Racial Services" leaders. This is why Michele Alexadner and te Prison Industrial Complex theory has been promoted as a relief value.
THE OBAMA FIST BUMP BLACK PRESS IS THE PROBLEM. They are COMPLICIT rather than CONFRONTATIONAL with their IDEOLOGICAL PARTNERS who are not producing results. (other than in Black voting)
