"Break Up To Make Up"


Black folks can we talk? If we are going to really change our communities from the ground up, do we really need a bunch of self appointed clowns jockeying for the position of HNIC? Because honestly, that is exactly what has been happening lately in the civil rights industry.

You have Tavis fighting with Rev. Al, the NAACP, and the Urban League. And you have Rev. Al fighting with Tavis. And, once again, it's about them, and not the larger struggle that they are supposed to be a part of.

But I blame his O ness for all of this. If he hadn't went and became president of these divided states, some of these clowns would have actually still been running around d thinking that they have some juice, and that they are still relevant in black America. They are not. The only people that they are relevant to are young white cable news producers who give them shine so that they can tell the rest of A-merry-ca how black folks think. They can't. Black folks are not monolithic thinkers, (just read the comments on this blog) and we sure as hell don't need a bunch of self appointed leaders of the Negroes in A-merry-ca telling us how to solve our problems.

If you live in Camden or Detroit, your problems are local: Poor schools, crime, jobs, reentry programs, affordable health care, and so on. So you really don't need a bunch of national talking heads who are paid handsomely to be professional poverty pimps, pontificating about us and our problems. And we sure as hell don't need to be a part of their clash of egos because someone was dissed or offended by the others words. The tragedy is that they are on national radio programs doing this bullshit, and we have to be dragged into the middle of it.

" James Taylor, a political science professor at the University of San Francisco, calls the current debate an example of black political elite fighting for better positions for themselves.

'“This really isn’t about representing the concerns of everyday black people,' Taylor told BlackAmericaweb.com. ''You have black millionaires coordinating a program that is economically driven and not protest driven.

'While blacks, like others in America, want to see more people back to work, most don’t look to activists for the real solutions, Taylor said.'They look past Smiley and Sharpton. They look to President Obama for policy that will eradicate the poverty of blacks,' Taylor said."

Amen Mr. Taylor! And BTW, I loved "Fire & Rain".

But seriously, if others can see it, why can't they? Are they they so caught up with their own egos and self delusiuon that the can't see the forrest for the wingtips? I mean really, was this really necessary? (Tavis, I guess Rev. Al kept it real at your expense. That will teach you to get all jealous [no pun intended Mr. NAACP leader] just because his O ness didn't invite you to the White House. And Rev. Al. if we are going to keep it really real "fo" real; how about a little less of the Super Bowl festivities and more of the people's work? Folks, I got my peeps all over A-merry-ca. )

"Syracuse University professor Boyce Watkins said the debate between Sharpton and Smiley is one that can probably be heard at dinner tables across America."

I love you Dr. Watkins, but you are wrong. The only thing that is being said at black dinner tables "across America" is how did the job interview go? And, pass the salt.

Ah, the self-appointed Negroes are figuring out that they actually have to do 'something' to earn those fat corporate sponsored paychecks. Sorry, but with the success of Barack Obama, these clowns find themselves in a greater political wilderness than the GOP.

Smiley, Rev. Al, the CBC and many of the old school lefty stalwarts are 'Emperors without Clothes' in the age of Obama. Frankly, these clowns have made a pretty penny telling Black folks how much we 'need them' and have little to nothing to show for it.

Do we really need another summit of Ivy League Negro Peacocks squawking about BS problems that only the boule class negroes have. (Sorry, but a portfolio reassessment ain't a problem most black people have in this economy. More like a "lack of paycheck" reassessment.

Frankly, its time to stop talking or caring what these overpaid gasbags think. We know what we want to change (ok, most of us. Some of our peeps up here can't seem to leave massa's house no matter how many times massa puts his foot through their behinds).


Get out, run for office, protest. Do something. Get involved. The one thing the Obama election and the Tea Party movement have showed, above all else, is that people can beat the status quo if they're committed and organized with a plan (something black folks on the ground and liberals generally lack, IMHO).

Personally, I've always felt that the so called established Black leaders had it in for Tavis because he didn't originally come out in support of Obama.

All this Tavis is ego trippin' stuff I never understood because if theres a bigger spotlight seeker than Al Sharpton, I wanna meet him!

MMM, fair enough. Nothing wrong with not feeling Obama per se. And Sharpton has an ego which side is only outdone by his gut.

But the issue is far more systemic -- the Black 'civil rights' class have long ago abandoned doing anything other than flappin' their gums and lining up corporate sponsors to whitewash their BS practices.

The main validity of both the Black conservative movement and the far-left Black net roots are the general worthlessness of the so-called 'leaders' that are lauded by the mainstream (and often the not so mainstream) media.

MeandMyMicroscope said...

One more thing. Tavis is absolutely right to be critical of Obama because from where I'm sitting, Black folks in general ARE worse off since his election.

Situations like these are why people outside "us" sit back and laugh while observing this bickering. IMHO, Black folks have given Obama a "pass" on tough issues because he's Black, and that's insane!!!

Rottnkid said...

"Sharpton said that Smiley while criticizing the first black president had in fact refered to Bill clinton as the first black president in his book and Sharpton went a step further when he accused Smiley of “buck dancing” for Clinton."

----------------------------------

I wish this WAS at a kitchen table versus national radio. I never cared for Al or Tavis but if you listened to both of them on the radio in it's entirety, Al was on point and right about a lot of things.

I'm going to play World of Warcraft now. Time to go kill some "devils".

"There’s nothing wrong with criticizing the actions or inaction of the president. I don’t agree with how he has handled some things - but this could be the anti-Obama Tea Party for black people,” Watkins said, adding that Smiley does not have “access” to the Obama White House."--Boyce Watkins

B. Watkins hit the nail on the head. Tavis has been jealous for years at Obama and can't get over the fact that he is irrelevant. His self-centered selfishness continues to corrupt his heart and mind. He has lost his way and can't find his way back to the people. He is finished in the black community and as a trustworthy person. He is DONE.

And if that bushy headed grovelling Cornell West shows up at that conference, somebody needs to cold-cock his ass.

This is a test of the Emergency Wingnut Broadcast System. The broadcasters of your area in voluntary cooperation with Fox News, The Drudge Report, Constructive Feedback, and Stormfront have developed this system to keep you informed in the event of an White Privilege emergency.


If this had been an actual emergency, you would have been instructed to tune to one of the broadcast blogs in your area for a stimulating discussion of "Street Pirates and the inner city progressive paradigm shift followed by Anti-black rantings from a black man."


But aside from that.........

It weird when you get to watch the dinosaurs die in real time.

@ LAC:

BRAVO! But I think it is very important to make the distinction between the true "mothers and fathers" of the movement and those that were on the fringes and figured out how to benefit from it financially (and on the backs of blacks that are still suffering).

The sheroes and heroes of the movement are either dead, doing something worthwhile for America, or too old and should be allowed to reflect.

I'd just like to know exactly what Tavis has done/said to indicate that he is jealous of Obama because if being critical of Obama's policies is all folks seem to have, then I'd advise folks to go search for something else. I'm not a fan of either Sharpton or Tavis, but I can easily recognize that Tavis hasn't been given a fair shake in years!!

After listening to their argument, it seems to me that the only thing Sharpton forgot to do was roll his neck and shake his perm, LOL!!!!

And I'm a huge fan of Cornell West!! Gotta love those "academic" types, LOL!!!

mellaneous said...

Field you hit one this time. You already know the answer to the question of do we need self appointed clowns jockeying for position." The answer is no!

But let me challenge you on the idea that Camden and Detroit can only solve their problems locally. That is true to only a certain extent. Just like corporations and the the Big Banks look to government when they get in trouble the folks trapped in impoverished and underdeveloped neighborhoods and schools have the right to look to the government to help solve their problems as well.

Hell the automakers from Detroit went to Washington for a bailout, why can't the people, who by the way government exists for and I don't care what the conservatives say otherwise. They too lean on the fed when it works for them. They sure don't complain about the feds bailing out their favorite industry or corporation through tax breaks, buying up surplus produce, giving out nearly no interest loans etc.

Field,

Between the house negro and the Field Negro Lies the overseers. Those who are there to make sure you stayed in the Field.

The cbc, rev.als smileys rangels,etc. are there for that reason, to keep the doors of the concentration camps closed, and only allow us out to work.

Your Blog and the Blogs of others
have become the underground railroad of this modern time.

We must Teach, Plead cases, build a new house on the prophets of the past, for it is only through Critical Thinking, that we will be able to see the path before us and unshackle the chains of our minds.Therby allowing us to see these overseers for the fools they are.

I can't help but think of the incredible disparity in these guys and their talk, talk, talk.... and the folks I am privileged to know and work with here in philly that are doing and getting things done... often on a shoe string budget, with little accolades... just big hearts and great minds.
One such person is Wayne Jacobs. Wayne is an ex-offender who, since coming out of jail years ago, has organized other ex-offenders to get involved in the political process to advocate for ex-offenders to be able to vote (he helped change the laws so that when you come out of jail, you are eligible to vote)... he mentors young men to turn their lives around after coming out of prison, and he helps folks apply for pardons who have old felony convictions that need to be pardoned so they can keep or get a job. I am telling you this because in my opinion, it is sad that Tavis and Al can have a national platform and everybody knows their name and Wayne has no media access.. yet he does what he does and does it without getting paid for it. You should know his name.

Thank you Wayne Jacobs... Tavis and Al could learn from you.

mellaneous said...

Back to Sharpton et al- We have to be careful we don't throw the baby out with the bath water. I have witnessed occassions when Jackson and Sharpton have articulated the cause of people clearly victimized by the injustice system, unjust labor practice, institutional racism you name the oppressive apparatus.

And there have been times when they have done it well.

As an activist I have been quite aware that there were times when they (Sharpton, etal)were getting something else out of a situation --lets say more than the satisfaction that the good fight was fought. So I and others did the smart thing, we used them to get what we needed and that was the attention that they brought to a particular situation.

I don't quite agree with Taylors line that folks don't look to activist to help solve their problem. Thats not true!

There may be less activists these days but blacks have always fallen back on activism to help solve our problems.

And for those waiting on Obama to solve their problems, as the Taylor guy is trying to say have to know that they will be waiting, and waiting and waiting and waiting....

Lets be careful not to put down activism while we are nailing the opportunists, there is a difference.

I know I have spent my life fighting the good fight.

liberation then peace

maria said...

no doubt the black unemployment rate is higher than white but the white male rate is double digit also.

i never see a post from you that shows any depth of understanding.

you might want to read:

According to Bureau of Labor Statistics data, 10.7 percent of white men over the age of 20 were unemployed; 17.3 percent of black males were unemployed at the same time. White women over the age of 20 have an unemployment rate of 7.1 percent, while 13.3 percent of black women are jobless (this is a devastating number given the disproportionate number of single-woman headed households in the black community). Whites between the ages of 16-19 had an unemployment rate of 24.1 percent; the black unemployment rate for same aged blacks was 43.5 percent.

Recently, I was at an event with Tavis Smiley. He was interviewed by the Paley Media Group. He talked about the meeting the Black leaders had with President Obama. Tavis was clearly not happy about the meeting and some of the comments.

Whatever grudge Smiley has against Obama runs deep. The white people in the audience did not like what he was saying. There is something personal against Obama.

Obama is not the reason Black people are worse off.

I don't think the question is whether or not Obama is the reason Blacks are worse off. It's a question of exactly what he's doing to rectify the situation. Health Care Reform that started with free health care for uninsured children would have been a great start because by definition, many black children are uninsured. But he bit off more than he could chew and far more than the country would have been comfortable spending with health care reform, and now it appears no one is going to get health care reform of ANY kind.

Of course, none of that would matter without Tort reform and CLEARLY he isn't going to go after his former classmates/colleagues.

@ MMM:

I KNOW we didn't come from similar backgrounds...there were zero blacks in my neigborhood...zero blacks in my schools until I went to an HBCU to get my "black experience" and a double undergraduate degree.

I then returned to academics, after spending 12 years living in Europe and Great Britian, only to return to a majority white arena again (for my double Master).

And...

I was not in the military, nor did I work for the military, nor was I married to a military member. American blacks, contrary to popular belief by most blacks, do work and live outside of America.

However, I was comfortable because I learned early how to "train my white folks".

So no, we defintely DO NOT have the same cultural experience.

Now sweete, don't they have any "act nice pills" where you work? And are you able to get ahold of any? Or do you need a vay cay (that's a vacation)? Are you slaving too hard for the whaite man trying to find cures for their diseases? Or did some of those nasty ole germs crawl up your nose into your brain? There has to be some reason why you're so full of aggression...but...

Smashed The Tiny Black Box said...

I think the two talking heads are a waste of space, personally. Unemployment must be dealt with on a more local/state level.

I disagree with the article saying that blacks are looking to Obama to solve unemployment issues. I never got that "Get Pookie off the couch." speech out of my mind. I saw it as playing to on the fence whites who thought he would redistribute wealth. It was as if he were saying "Thanks for the support, but you are on your own." I'm not really shocked by this.

The only group who has been helped out are the top 1% of earners. TARP, (he voted for it as a senator, a big warning sign in my mind) Stimulus, health care and guess who will be getting that tax increases. Well, it won't be Rahm and his cohorts.
Most intelligent people realized long ago that it's every man or woman for him/her self in the American economy.
Smiley and Sharpton are just trying to give themselves PR. Who, after all, appointed them to set the "Black Agenda?" What if I disagree with their agenda? Hmmm.

They are the Leading Blacks but surely aren't Black Leaders. They are preaching to the choir and the choir is singing the same tune but the congregation wants to know what to do to be saved.

Somehow everyone thinks these guys have been appointed by the majority of Blacks. In Compton we don't know any of these guys and probably wanted gangbanging and crack to stop for the past 20 years more than boycotting Toyota.

You got me because I don't know who's supporting them anymore. Don't they realize a whole new generation has come up damn I came up on NWA and we damn near rejected everyone talking that Civil Rights crap.

As a young man I don't know who the hell the Black leader is. Obama isn't the leader either he just happens to be the real HNIC!

Since when are presidents responsible for the economy? Comments such as, "Blacks are worse off since Obama has taken office." shows a woeful misunderstanding of economics.

It's a basic fact that the economy is cyclical despite who is in office. Yet, the person who is in office collects the praise or criticism for peaks and troughs, respectively.

Stop the madness!

Constructive Feedback said...

[quote]If we are going to really change our communities from the ground up, do we really need a bunch of self appointed clowns jockeying for the position of HNIC?[/quote]

My, my, my, My friend Filled Negro. What a tangled web do we seem to be in as a people after you and these other operatives have been spinning your silk for decades.

Before I go into the weeds I want to tell you that my answer will have two parts to it:

1) Documenting YOUR (collective you) participation in the present circumstances

2) Recommendations of how to nutter the "confidence men" who are exploiting the VOID to their advantage.

Filled Negro, others:

IF you feel this way about Sirs Smiley and Sharpton:

1) Can you document your attempts to get them to SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP during the process of the ascension of PRESIDENT Barack Obama? OR since they had the same END GAME as you did - were their words less troublesome in the first 3/4ths of 2008?

2) Can you document how YOUR OWN ideology and/or methodologies for the governance/development of the Black community differs from these 2?

3) In the array of Negro "leaders" (West, Jackson, Young, Ogletree, Daniels, John Lewis, Marable, Malveaux, Dyson, Joyner, and so many, many more [ALL OF THEM LEFTISTS]) can you document any DISTINCTIONS between your own ideological thoughts and that of their own?

4) (MOST IMPORTANTLY) Since these forces ALREADY control the vertical establishment where Black people live in our highest concentrations (city/county/state and of course both houses of the US Congress and the Presidency) WHY ARE THEY STILL looking toward OBAMA to solve their GRIEVANCES?

WEREN'T WE TOLD that "ONCE WE GET FAVORABLE PEOPLE IN POWER" within all of these PREVIOUS OFFICES that things would be better?

It seems that they are now STANDING ON THE WEST COAST, looking at the Pacific Ocean - having reached the logical end of their ability to continue their EXPANSIONARY CHASE.


PART II)
What you are seeing, Filled Negro is the VOID of what they FAILED TO CONSTRUCT in the way of a GOVERNANCE ARCHITECTURE for the Black Community's machine. For so long THEY (and you) where intolerant to inspection and debate. NO BLACK MAN could survive with his RACIAL DIGNITY intact after having weighed in upon what they were doing to our people.

Instead of setting up INSTITUTIONS where IDEAS could be PROMOTED or in the case of Philly and Yeadon - RETIRED WHEN THEY FAILED - you all pushed FAKE UNITY!!!!

You remained UNIFIED by finding an EXTERNAL WHIPPING BOY. The EVIL RACIST CONSERVATIVES and the greedy CORPORATIONS provided such a diversion. (Don't forget about my buddy - Clarence Thomas).

All the while you all agreed to focus on that which could get you passionate and hot - THESE CONFIDENCE MEN stepped into the VOID that was left and had their way with you.

The answer is NOT to pick sides between Sharpton and Smiley about OBAMA. The answer is to HOLD ALL 3 OF THEM UNDER INSPECTION for THEY ALL ARE A PART OF THE SAME GRAND DELUSION.

YOU ALL fused your COMMUNITY INTERESTS with these POLITICAL INTERESTS. Now that (on paper) your political interests have PEAKED - the FLAWS in your strategy are apparent.

The only question is: DO YOU SEE IT? Will YOU change, opting instead for a more TRANSPARENT SYSTEM of governance and "idea-ation" for your community?

Sean, I have met Prof Reed a couple of times. And I read his book about the sixties; "Race, Politics & Culture..
He is a deep brotha.

Jody, this is why I love you, because you walk the walk. Thanks for telling us about that worker.

BTW, the word verification was CONMAN. Can't make it up. :)

They say reading is fundamental and obviously many folks like agaPEE are oblivious to what that means.

I never said any aspect of economy was Obama's fault and it's pretty obvious that he inherited many problems from the previous administration.

What I'm saying is that NO political party can "save" the Black community and that like CF, it's easy to see where automatically aligning with the Dems hasn't worked out all that well for Black folks

Hathor said...

No Black person has really appointed these people as their leaders with exception of a few specific events or organizations they run. White folks and the media keep telling us these people are our leaders, because these are the only ones they know. I had never heard of Al Sharpton until the incident with Tawana Brawley and thought of him as just a local minister who had gotten involved. As I saw it, Tavis Smiley appeared on the scene a few years ago as a TV host. Then when I got on the net, I am told these people are my leaders(don't have cable).

The NAACP mission was never the same as SCLC or SNCC, but people act if it was. Julian Bond is not a holdover from the old leadership. As a very young man he was a leader in the movement, then he spent most of his political life in the Georgia legislature. The contributions he did make no one makes note of, the same with Jesse Jackson. People and events of the Civil Rights movement of the 50's and 60's are obscure. Yes, there are a few sound bites here and there that are remembered in this Disneyfied media world, but I think if the old guard was truly remembered, we would have real leaders now.

Filled Negro - IF YOU LISTEN TO SHARPTON and his ilk - you'd believe that the COPS are the biggest criminals in the Black community. He called for FEDERAL LEGISLATION to reign in the cops.

[quote] We need black leadership in this country.[/quote]

WE DO NOT NEED "BLACK" LEADERSHIP in this country. Many of you seem to be rather content following the game plan that is readily apparent out of 'The Nation Magazine" or "HuffPo".

WE NEED AN "ARCHITECTURE FOR GOVERNANCE AND HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT" inside of the PLOT OF LAND that we are interested in LIFTING TOWARD A HIGHER STANDARD OF LIVING!!!!

There is no "Black Leadership" any more than there is "WHITE CALCULUS". Instead there are UNIVERSAL TRUTHS and there are "LIES WHICH PROVE MORE COMPELLING TO THE MASSES" that they follow.

YOUR JOB - Filled Negro - is to come up with a MODEL OF THE REAL WORLD that most closely and accurately REPRESENTS:

* The forces that bear down against you
* The RESOURCES that you have in your favor
* The END GOAL that you seek.

Your job is to MANAGE the resources that seek to BENEFIT FROM THE END GAME, having them BE THE PRIMARY FORCE OF PROPULSION TOWARD THIS END....using their GOD GIVEN FULL HUMAN EQUALITY and their TEMPERANCE to defer instant gratification on behalf of FUTURE GAIN.

I am LESS concerned about your idea of LEADERSHIP than I am concerned that YOU are not inclined to PURGE IT THE HELL OFF OF THE STAGE when it has earned a boot yet STILL is mouthing ideas that YOU FAVOR.

Our community has acute levels of self hate it is present even here on this site..In part this self hate is a residual of white supremacy and white privledge some of us are still suffering from the wounds of white supremacy ..

I also find as a home grown Black activist how Blacks immigrants also buy into this attack on Black leaders as well..

I have pointed out on this thread the difference in Blacks like FN and others who are not born in America how they interact and view white folks as compared to native orginal Black folks..

"When I call for COMMUNITY intervention against STREET PIRATE ASSAULTS against our own damned community - I get static from Mellaneous and Jody."

UnCon this is why it is difficult to take you seriously. That statement is just not true.

You put words in folks mouths and create straw men because you can't or refuse to take on people's real ideas that they express, and often times very clearly.

I too have talked about the importance of the involvement of the community in ridding it of street crime. I have said on numerous occassions that street crime is a problem and has to be dealt with. However I also talked about trying to rid our communities of the causes of street crime, which is where you are usually silent.

We also differ because I believe that abuse by law enforcement and street crime are serious problems n our community, while you only seem to see street crime as a problem.

I think it is pretty narrow of you to miss the real live problem of folks with the power of the STate behind them operating with impunity and disrespect in our community.

I personally have been involved in situations where cops have badly injured folks and sometimes killed people for no reason. And unlike the case in most street crime; their crime went unpunished.

You challenged me UnCon several posts back to say what I would do to change things in the inner city. I wrote a long post laying out my vision. You nor any one else commented on it. But it was there.

And BTW Jody is not the only one who has walked the walked I have spent lots of time working with the folks you called street pirates as well as fighting systemic injustices that plague our community. I have written about it as well quite often for Black Agenda Report and a few other not as popular blog sites.

Field-- I really, really want to know your opinion about the usefulness of political and community activists in our black community. I was a bit disturbed by the poster FreeMan referring to something he called "civil rights crap." Really civil rights crap! Do you see that way as well?

AB- I feel you on Obama but its not enough to criticize him we have to offer some what do we do now that we know that the black man in the White HOuse ain't gonna save us. For the record before someone says something stupid, my revolutionary minded, liberation theology advocating butt never supported nor saw Obama as a real agent for change.

uptownsteve said...

AB

Your hatred of President Obama is irrational and quite frankly, embrassing.

If he postures as favoring a "black agenda" he's toast politically and you know that.

What he is doing for the majority of blacks is cracking down on left over entrenched racism with the Justice Department.

He got the jobs package through Congress and I'd like to see more small business loans for minorities, gov contracts, etc.

He's trying to get healthcare reform enacted.

He is pushing more charter schools for the broken urban public school system.

Now what specifically would you like to see Obama do FOR BLACKS in the current economical and political environment and how do you propose he would get away with it?

Thrasher said...

What is also an issue is the ease at which we are willing to dismiss and discard the body of work by people like Jesse, Al , Travis..

Again in part some of this is based upon the legacy of being oppressed by white supremacy..It still wounds and causes community disconnects across the diaspora..

We must however move forward and understand the nature of our leadership and the people our leadership addresses..

White America does not have the same connection with white leadership as we do with Black leadership it is that simple..

Nonsense Black Issues are American Issues..We did not as a people suffer through centuries on inhumanity to get a Black man in the white house to ignore our concerns...

It is not wrong to demand his attention to our issues and struggles

Nor is it out of order to expect him not to adress our issues, we pay taxes, we died in Iraq, we protect and serve here in the states..

Obama should expect to hear from Black folks we will never abandon him yet he will make our concerns margainal in a ghetto second..

obama is not your daddy or your doctor

you should be embarassed by your own confusion

The current health care "debate" shows how far gone representative government is in the United States. Members of Congress represent the powerful interest groups that fill their campaign coffers, not the people who vote for them.

The health care bill is not about health care. It is about protecting and increasing the profits of the insurance companies. The main feature of the health care bill is the "individual mandate," which requires everyone in America to buy health insurance. Senate Finance Committee chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont), a recipient of millions in contributions over his career from the insurance industry, proposes to impose up to a $3,800 fine on Americans who fail to purchase health insurance.

The determination of "our" elected representatives to serve the insurance industry is so compelling that Congress is incapable of recognizing the absurdity of these proposals.

I'm not the one attacking Obama.

His administration is a sea-change from the Bush policies on most issues.

"Perhaps, I am hinky. But does any black person, aside from myself, find it offensive that the media has acknowledged these people as leaders of the black community?"

Why should we be embarrassed?

The media should be embarassed for their ignorance.

Are Limbaugh and Beck white leaders?

i know, i just wanted to support you on that.

Of course Obama does not explicitly care about black people. It would be irresponsible for him to do that as a leader of ALL Americans.

Obama explicitly cares about the middle class, of which blacks are a part. So, incidentally, he does care about blacks and other who are members of the middle class.

uptownsteve said...

We won't have to worry about Obama loading up the Federal judiciary with rightwing ideologues who want to turn back the clock on social advancement.

He'll appoint progressive judges.

Obama won't appoint hardline conservatives to the EEOC who don't even believe in the agencies purpose.

Many of us black folks have to stop the reflexive whining and start getting smart.

Destroying Obama will do nothing but help another rightwing pinhead get back in the WH.

Is that what you want AB?

just how has obama been any less warmongering and elitist than gwb????

when did gwb buy a bank/auto co???

will you feel this same blind adoration when obama strikes pakistan/iran/nigeria anew???

District Attorney, lawyer for imperialist international corporations

After graduating from Yale, Sotomayor worked as a District Attorney in Manhattan, New York, serving the state in prosecuting African and oppressed people in New York. She followed this up as a corporate lawyer serving the interests of global companies against workers and oppressed people.

Having proven herself loyal to companies by defending them against liability claims, it is not surprising then that Republican President George HW Bush would choose her to serve in Southern Manhattan’s Federal District Court. Her 1998 appointment to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals by U.S. President William Clinton, was confirmed in a largely Republican Senate in a 67 to 29 vote!

Uptown,

I want Obama to assign Holder to address the prision rates of young black youth..I want Holder to pass federal laws releasing black youth from drug crimes where violence was not a part of the offense..

The FEDS have imprisoned to any black men for wiretap crimes, conspiracies etc..

If Obama just handled this one issue I would be pleased..Our communities are suffering from fatherless families and parents having thier kids in the house because of them being in jail

alicia banks said...

ditto t!

these obama nazis have no clue!

that is what happens to black racists who think anyone with black skin is their friend!!!

obama is a more ruthless and elitist connected enemy than his blood kin gwb!

he is indeed gwb 2.0
blacker
smarter
more evil
more abusive to ALL poor people
more elitist
more ruthless
yet beloved still....shame!!!!


the demise of atlanta and new orleans should be a wake up call to black racists in 2010/2012/2016...

do not be played by politicos/hobamas who look like you!!!
judge all by their actions not their skin!

After riding high for a generation they are unable to come up with any model for urban economic development aside from moving poorer residents out and moving richer ones in. Some of their signature projects, like the Atlanta Belt-Line, the 1996 Olympics, and the policies of the Atlanta Housing Authority, have been based around or occurred in the context of destabilization and dispersal of lower-income black neighborhoods, including Atlanta's housing projects. Like the white elite, our black leaders across the nation do not value stable black neighborhoods if the people in them have low incomes. Wherever there's a dollar to be made flipping a neighborhood, they have joined the white establishment in portraying such places as hopeless sinkholes of despair and violence for which the best medicine is gentrification.

Thrasher said...

Why is it always a feature of our culture to have public beatdowns of Black folks..From this thread by FN to countless talk shows and news accounts where Black folks tell it all about our shortcomings and internal concerns

Why? It is a result of the lost of privacy created by the oppression of slavery on this soil? Is the offspring of white supremacy made us obligated to run to master all the time and show him what, who, how,where?

The majority of white america has never been to our homes, most of our white peers have never been to our churches, the majority of whites have never been to our funerals, our hopices, our parties

Yet we bend over backwards to allow them into our most vunerable realities..Why???

Thrasher said...

White folks will run with this so-called dust up between Tavis & Al..White pundits and Black apologists and academic types will waste millions of words about the pathology of Black folks because of the different opinions of talented people like Tavis, Al, Jesse, Julian, Maxine, Sharon, etc..

I am so tired of the internal warfare we engaged in for the amusement of our egos and the entertainment of white folks...

Is the rope of white supremacy still tied to our necks even in 2010?

How can we liberate ourselves from the diease and the pathologies of white supremacy in 2010?

Are we stiil contaminated with self hate??

Anna Renee said...

@Thrasher. "Are we still contaminated with self hate??" Yes. I have been debating with myself whether to publish a post on "Are black folks schizo?" We tend to tear into one another like lions at a zebra kill! This is nothing but self hate. It's so wrong to think that Obama can make things right for black folks in a years time. It's crazy to be angry that he hasn't done it. This is America and America has a history! It sits right on top of black people! Black People, you better not sit on your hands and expect Obama to do for you what you must do for yourself! How did our forebears make it in a racist society? Did they wait for that society, that government to do it for them? We better get off the Obama as Saviour kick and continue to work hard and make space for ourselves. NO ONE WILL DO THAT FOR US, and Obama simply cant!
Railing against Obama does nothing but show that one is foolishly expecting him to save! He's simply a man--not Jesus! Railing will do nothing but wreck your health!

Who cares?

Al and Tavis can talk and argue just like family.

We may agree on some things and disagree on others but ultimately we want what's best for the family.

Now notice that these black coonservatives won't come near any of these black "family" discussions if they're lives depended on it.

Nah, they'll go on O'Reilly or Hannity and talk about mean most black folks are to them or how blacks are all hooked on handouts and government cheese.

But they won't dare go in front an audience of black folks and talk that noise.

That's why they're frauds.

WHITE FOLK want to divide this COUNTRY UP! what do you think the word's, STATE'S RIGHT'S mean? it mean's, if they have BLACK FOLK in their STATE, they can implement JIM CROW LAW'S!

BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA did NOT cause the economy to go CRAZY! GREEDY WHITE MEN did! let me repeat myself! GREEDY WHITE MEN are responsible for the down fall of AMERICA! so, what do we have? BLACK MEN out of JOB'S, as if any Sound minded BLACK person, would blame a BLACK PRESIDENT for the condition of AMERICA!

ISEEISEE

**Tongue in cheek** ISEEISEE, and all this time I thought it was us (black folks) buying more house than we could afford that led to the collapse of the economy!

On a serious note, good point you've made.

"But let me challenge you on the idea that Camden and Detroit can only solve their problems locally. That is true to only a certain extent. Just like corporations and the the Big Banks look to government when they get in trouble the folks trapped in impoverished and underdeveloped"

Great point Mel. Try telling that to our conservative friends. Somehow when busineses get bailed out it's different for them. The only bad people in A-merry-ca are poor people.

Now here is my thing on civil rights. I will use a football analogy: We needed civil rights to get down the field and get into the red zone. Now that we are there we have to get into the end zone. (Damn I sound like Jesse) The old methods of civil rights are no longer practical. (New laws etc.) Now we have to score a touchdown by finding new ways of gaining economic empowerment.

The most important thing that I think is needed is working to improve the educational system for our children. All the Tavis Smileys and Al Sharptons in the world won't make that happen. It starts with each individual.

WhiteBowieSteve:

Out of all of the things that I worry about possibly happening it is NOT having "The Clock Turned Back".

Instead I wonder if Barack Obama is commited to promoting judiciary candidates who don't see Black folks as THEY LEAST OF THESE but instead viewing us EQUALLY under the law.

I challenge you to list the rulings of CLARENCE THOMAS that has done HARM TO any Black people who BELIEVE THAT WE ARE EQUAL HUMAN BEINGS.

NO I am not talking about those who assumed our DAMAGED STATE and thus are pissed at him for terminating a government program.

I will then make a list of rulings by Ruth Bader Ginsburg in which SHE MADE IT CLEAR - "Black people are INFERIOR" and thus should not be EXPECTED to be held to the same standard as WHITE FOLKS.

Did you see how she refered to the "Duke Energy" case in which their new policy that ALL SUPERVISORY PROMOTIONS require a HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA? This ruling in the early 70's created the notion of "Disparate Outcome" because while 32% of the WHITE FOLKS had a HS Diploma, ONLY 12% of the Blacks had one. This was RACIST in her view.

Let's talk about her support for "Urban Renew" projects. (Negro Renual Projects).

IseeIsee:

You know I love you right?

Sometimes you go off the deep end.

Why do you worry about ME "going into THESE COMMUNITIES" more than you speak about the DAMNED PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY WITHIN?

Is there TWO TIERS OF BLACK FOLKS in your view?

WHAT do you ask of ME that you don't feel quite confident in asking of THE RESIDENTS WITHIN?

DO I have a greater obligation to the BLACK RACE as compared to them?

When Al Sharpton is done with them are they made EQUAL HUMAN BEINGS or are they merely APPRECIATIVE and thus more inclined to VOTE for those who SHARPTON tell them to?

I listened to his show today. He said that "if Black folks don't stay UNIFIED - our ENEMIES might get back into POWER".

I wondered WHO is "OUR ENEMY"? Who are our FRIENDS?

Surely NOT the people running the school system of Philadelpia.

I really amazes me how CF and AB can be so prolific. One of the first post I wrote, took me two weeks to write and I believe it is shorter than either of their entire comments on each of FN's post.

I, too, am amazed. Although, I do not like much of what CF has to say. I do admire his ability to write.

I agree that President Obama shouldn't get a pass from black people. We do need to hold him accountable. I think Tavis should also be held accountable, because if this is just his little vendetta against Obama then he doesn't really have black peoples interests at heart either.He has never criticized the Clintons,the Bushes, Michael Steele or Ward Connelly like he has the President.

ab,

back in the flow..where were you..you still trying to lionize yourself in here??

making allegations that you are a god and me just a pawn..lol,lol,lol

I mean you been rightously co-signing for awhile course I love it

Tavis and others should check Obama on whatever..he gets no free pass...

For centuries we have to deal with inhumanity on this soil and to now get a person of color in the white house to act like a paleface to pander to white folks is insane

LACoincidental said...

Wow, this a hot mess!!! Listening to these coons cuss each other out on national radio is just disturbing. This only proves my point that Black leadership has been in disarray long before Obama got to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

UTS, as usual we're along the same lines -- just because Obama doesn't rock a dashiki and spout the Black Panther 10 Point Agenda doesn't mean that his agenda is not aligned with our interests. In other words, what middle Black person would not benefit from health care reform or a jobs bill?

There are some regular posters who quite frankly, are driven by narrow agendas that don't allow for objectivity. Honestly, if someone said that Obama was a secretly a Martian Killer Cyborg, there are some regular bloggers who start demanding proof that he's completely human. ;-)

The problem is that Black folks keep waiting on these millionaire motormouths to do something other than talk.

The difference between Obama and these two jigs is that Obama can be held accountable for doing nothing. Voters, the Congress and the gun-toting (and plane crashing) tea bagger crowd make sure of that. Guys like Sharpton and Smiley simply have to get out TV and get paid to yammer with Bill O'reilly.

One of my many gripes with these so-called leaders and leaders on the 'left' in general is that they've been almost all talk for most of my lifetime. Nader, Smiley, Chomsky and the like have chattered my ears off for years. Now, they have a golden opportunity to make real change.

We have a President who does listen to all sides and isn't a complete idiot. Democrats run the congress. Most the country support progressives ideas on LGBT rights, health care, financial regulation and the environment. The country is hungry for real ideas and real plans for implementation.

Now, the Naders, Sharptons and Smileys of the world can't simply complain about 'the man' -- they actually have to do something.

Its about time that we hold guys like Smiley and Sharpton (and West, Dyson, the CBC, the Black Church, etc) to the same standards everyone's holding the President to -- put up or shut up.

I really wish that I had as much time as CF to post.

"I challenge you to list the rulings of CLARENCE THOMAS that has done HARM TO any Black people who BELIEVE THAT WE ARE EQUAL HUMAN BEINGS."

This link tells us all we need to know about Justice Slappy.

http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&ct=res&cd=1&ved=0CAoQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.alternet.org%2Fstory%2F64929%2F&rct=j&q=Clarence+Thomas%27+anti-black+rulings&ei=MCGHS6ynJNHT8QaB-6DLDw&usg=AFQjCNHSXDgK5M7M7LSiJwefVrhcEsvkIw

"NO I am not talking about those who assumed our DAMAGED STATE and thus are pissed at him for terminating a government program."

As the link shows, nobody has benefited more from "government" than Clarence Thomas.

"Let's talk about her (Ruth Ginsburg's) support for "Urban Renew" projects. (Negro Renual Projects)."

And what's wrong with that?

We've had the government finance white flight from the inner city and we also have the "New Homestead Act" to revitalize and renew the economies of the plains states which are almost all lilly white.

Yeah black folks are treated differently alright and you don't seem to have a problem with that.
