I thought that I had laid out a rather non-"trickery" based request from my friend Yeri on the Booker Rising blog.
Of course the fact that I am critical of the fraudulent operations of the majority of the "Black Racial Services Machine" then it must be ME who stands against the development of Black people by leaders who are fighting against "racist" attacks.
For the "Fish Don't Know He Wet" people - they can't see that that which they believe is "True Black Political Consciousness" - is merely what they have adopted as POPULARITY.
When I demand "effective outcomes", in line with their promises to the effect - it's like I grew a second head - as they can't rationalize that someone actually EXPECTS production for our people to come out of their scheme.
Your anti-black confirmation bias is showing. To blame the ills of cities on the "black racial services machine" or the "black progressive establishment" betrays a pathological disrespect for the integrity, intellectual ability, and leadership qualities of black officials trying to govern in hard economic times.[/quote]
It comes as no surprise that YOU would attempt to claim that the ESSENCE of the "Black Racial Services Machine" is their BLACKNESS rather than their PROGRESSIVE-FUNDAMENTALIST BIGOTRY in which their BLACKNESS is merely a FACADE for Negroes like YOURSELF to claim a "racial attack" over.
LET ME ASK YOU THIS - Yeri:
Can you detail ANYWHERE in recent Black Electoral history in which:1) A Racial Services Machine Candidate for elective office
2) Worked in conjunction with the "Progressive Joint Venture (The racially diverse but ideologically "lily white" coalition) to COMPEL near UNANIMOUS collection of the EQUAL BLACK BALLOT
3) Having OBTAINED monopoly POWER over a district (see Philly, Baltimore, Newark, Detroit, Chicago, Cleveland, Memphis)
4) for SUFFICIENT TIME for their SCHEME to begin to PRODUCT AFFIRMATIVE and ORGANIC CHANGE for the BENEFIT OF THE BLACK COMMUNITY
5) AS THEY PROMISED WOULD HAPPEN if "The Blacks" channeled their BLACK COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT CONSCIOUSNESS into the GROWTH OF THE MACHINE
(HERE IS THE KEY BULLET POINT COMING UP)
6) UPON WHICH the PROMISES PROVED ELUSIVE AND THE BLACK RACIAL SERVICES MACHINE began working to DEFEND THE BLACK COMMUNITY INTERESTS from FURTHER USURPATION by their POLITICAL AND IDEOLOGICAL SOUL MATES?
FOR EXAMPLE - Telling Black people to WITHDRAW their EMOTIONAL ATTACHMENT from the DEMOCRATIC PARTY, continue to vote BUT shift the BALANCE OF THEIR DEVELOPMENT CONSCIOUSNESS into NON-POLITICAL, ORGANIC community development interests - AS THEY ARE SEEN FIGHTING to keep the POLITICAL OPERATIVES OUT from taking CREDIT of the benefits achieved from this CHANGE OF COURSE.
(Personal Note: I like you Yeri BUT your response to this post will determine my long term views of YOU and your INTELLECTUAL INTEGRITY. My sentiment of YOU may matter to YOU. I accept this. But you will not be able to say that I was CLOSED MINDED and never gave you an OPEN MIC to speak your peace. )
YOU HAVE THE FLOOR, sir.
I've read this post a couple times and the profligate use of the upper-case doesn't amplify the low decibals of your ignorant accusations when "those who have obtained majority power", and have always had majority power, in cities you refuse to acknowledge, with white leadership and majority white or other non-black populations, are facing similar financial, economic senarios as your so-called "mission accomplished" cities. Only you, for some pathological reason, attribute socio-economic difficulties to some intellectual ineptitude inherent in the black political mind rather than the macro-economic reality of a national and international reccession, rapidly becoming a global depression.
Yeri:I am not surprised by your response. I really am not.
YOU - just as the group of people who I talked with last night - assume that my criticism of what is PURPORTED TO BE "Black Progress" - as merely "Black Ideological Political Expression" CAN'T BRING YOURSELVES to see that it is NOT "Intrinsic" or Immutable and thus your inability to see this is YOUR myopia - not MY "BLACK HATRED".
Here is the proper rebuttal - on two different tracks
1) YOU NOW HAVE "Favorable People In Power" - who GOT THEIR POWER via the support and convincing of BLACK PEOPLE - that once IN POWER - the Black condition would improve as THE WHITE FOLKS that used to run things were RACISTS who had no interest in Blacks.
THE KEY POINT - The FAILURE from you on this track is that THERE IS NO PRESENT ATTEMPT TO PREVENT FUTURE USE OF "RACIAL GRAVITATIONAL PULL" - as you now seek out EFFECTIVE MEANS of building up YOUR CITIES that YOU IDEOLOGICALLY CONTROL - no longer content that OTHER CITIES are in the mud as well. UNLIKE these other cities - YOUR is not controlled by a RACIST. YOURS is controlled by forces who got 50%+1 of the Black Vote.
(Further clarity - no caps: What you can't bring yourself to accept is the counter-narrative to the narrative that is the essence of the "Racism Chasing Meme" that you have based your entire existence upon. You ran against racism to get this present power, based on the promises made to Black people about the future. Now you stand in power - and are at the point where you should be made to come through upon the lure that got you the power - but now you are telling us all about your commonality. Are there not cities that are doing far, far better than your own? Is there any evidence that you have search out to figure out what makes them tick? What made your present city grow to its past glory? Or is racism chasing used to forge ideological power your only goal?)
2) Has YOUR ORIGINAL AGENDA OF "BLACK DEVELOPMENT FOR OUR PEOPLE" not been compromised and molested by your quest for political power?
To add context - I am now watching the Melissa Harris-Perry Show. The essence of her Saturday broadcast is that the RACIST REPUBLICANS are seeking to use the "Black Church" as a wedge to peel off Black voters as "Obama the Metrosexual" is hit by an "Articulate Black Conservative".
Yeri - As I listened to this entire segment - with great irritation I might add - Ms Perry paraded through various ministers from "Trinity United" to talk about how "Black Liberation Theory" was a key body of knowledge which allowed the Black community to align its RACIAL goals of development as a people with its CHRISTIAN goals of following Christ through helping THE LEAST OF THESE.
The ONE THING THAT NONE OF THEM TALKED ABOUT, Yeri, was DID IT ACTUALLY FREAKING WORK?????
The Southside Of Chicago - MAY be an example that B.L.T. can compel Black folks to built big churches BUT THERE IS LITTLE EVIDENCE that this LEFTIST PSEUDO-REVOLUTIONAL meme can BUILD UP NEGROES into "proper thinking" people - prepared to stand on their own.
Ms Perry is EXACTLY the type of lost soul - political operative - that I speak about when I notate that the BLACK PRESS must be INDEPENDENTLY OWNED for it to ever move from mere ideological and political hackery over to the voice of GOVERNANCE and protection of BLACK INTERESTS from POLITICAL USURPATION that POPULARITY and SELF-SERVING compels one to do.
