Ghetto Dictatorships?



I met and hung out with Kevin Powell a few years ago. We have a mutual friend and he spends a lot of time in Philly visiting this brother. When I heard that he was running again for a seat in New York's 10th congressional district I followed his campaign. I figured that if anyone could unseat the entrenched pol in that Brooklyn congressional district, he could. Boy was I wrong. I should have known that you Negroes treat your elected leaders like your furniture: you don't like to change them. (Charlie Rangel anyone?)

One of the problems, of course, with business as usual among the old school black pols, is that s&^% never gets done. Maybe we need a black version of the teabag movement to shake them up. Clearly what they are doing isn't working. Sitting around D.C. and (pardon my French) jerking each other off is not my idea of serving the people.

Anyway, Powell had a few choice words for the black political establishment after getting his young behind handed to him by the business as usual candidate:

"..Additionally, I must say this to my opponent, Congressman Ed Towns, his team, and his supporters: You may have won this time but it is so clear to so many that the days of your reign here in Brooklyn are very close to over. You’ve never had to work so hard to hold on to your seat, you’ve never had your nearly three decades of lazy leadership exposed so much and to so many, and you can no longer be invisible, silent, or otherwise missing in action to the people of Brooklyn’s 10th Congressional district, nor to the American people.

Mr. Towns, we expect you to earn the salary and great benefits our taxpayer dollars cover, and we expect you to think very seriously about your legacy as a Congressman in these final years of your Congressional life. When you and I crossed paths Tuesday night, election night, at that polling site near Starrett City, it was the first and only time we’ve ever had a one-on-one conversation, and I have lived in this community, in your district, for 20 years. You avoided debating me in 2008 (as you have avoided debating all opponents since you were first elected in 1982), and you avoided debating me again this year. And that is fine. It is clear you do not really believe in the very democracy that many sacrificed their lives for to achieve, including those in places like North Carolina where you were born and where some of the great battles of the Civil Rights Movement occurred.."


Kevin, I know you were on "Real World MTV", but this is the real world.
Brothers against brothers, and folks clinging to power by any means necessary.

"..Moreover, Congressman Towns, it is a two-way street: you have to begin to respect and acknowledge the leadership that is not just your son, or your daughter, or your daughter-in-law, or someone you’ve handpicked to be in your Brooklyn circle. As I have stated before, what is most troubling for me and many others in Brooklyn is that within Black Brooklyn (as is the case throughout Black America) we have something I call “ghetto dictatorships.” In other words, you may have had good intentions when you first got into office, Mr. Towns, for I do believe you are, at your core, a good and decent man. But somewhere along the way you lost your way and your Congressional seat has become more about power and influence for yourself than about everyday people..."

Hmmm, "ghetto dictatorships", Kevin you have coined an interesting phrase. And I know exactly what you mean. We could remove the name Towns and insert take your pick in its place.

"So I end this statement by saying that I challenge you, Congressman Towns, and all Black elected officials in Brooklyn and across America, to cease participating in these ghetto dictatorships, to really look yourselves in the mirror and answer the question I asked you, Mr. Towns, which you could not answer on Tuesday night: What is your legacy going to be, what have you really done for the people of your district, not just for a handful of people lucky enough to have gotten a job or favor from you? That is the true mark of leadership, to touch as many lives as possible, to help as many people as possible to become self-empowered, with or without legislation, and in as many creative ways as possible. Anything less means we’ve done a grave disservice to whatever God we claim to believe in, a grave disservice to the history and the people that came before us, and a grave disservice to that sacred space we call public service." [Article]

OK Kevin, go get em next time. Just try to keep your house clean this time. Just remember, you ain't Sarah light.

Not surpising Field. Because Black folks don't care enough to read up on the issue and pull a lever -- Rangel's gonna walk right back into office.

Now, as for the barbarians at the gate, well this is typical in American politics and Black politics in particular. Scandal breaks on a long time politician and every kook and crook with an IQ above legally retarded and 200 signatures thinks they deserve a shot at the title.

Now, this is democracy, of course. But there is such a thing as too many players on the field. A smart, experience publican like Rangel or a great PR man like Schwazenagger can maneuver past the contenders to the throne.

But that's also another issue in Black politics is arrogance. Not just on the part of incumbents but on every so-called activist, junior professor of Blah blah studies at some university or even we as angry bloggers. Those of us with a micron more knowledge and experience than the average cat (And sometimes not even that) think we can do a better job. Could we? Maybe, but if every professional protester, huckster preacher and Brainiac decides to s/he is going to 'for the will of the people', you get a crowded field.

Rangel won for the same reason Bloomberg is mayor in NYC -- too many MC's and not enough mics.

And people like Rangel simply side step all of you as you have to fight not only the incumbent but everyone else looking for a title shot.

tavis brewed his black tea long ago!

Alicia, Black politics have been jacked up long before Obama came along. And Tavis is just bitter because he backed Hillary and Obama didn't kiss his pinky to win. Guys like him are the issue with Black politics. Its about the people, Negro, its not about you.

The Tea Party as as populist as Lady Gaga is a natural blond. Its a lobbyist funded rent-a-mob of middle aged, angry white people enraged about the economy AND that a Negro is the White House.

You can't claim to be populist and argue against real progressive change. You do realize these crazy coots want to keep the medical insurance system? And fight against financial reform and moratoriums on foreclosure?

I got no problem with old ass Black folks in power at least they care about Black folks can't say as much for people like Wayne aka FN who will put white jewish interests and people before Black Americans...Rangle is a piece of old dying ass wood by he is our nigger..

Kevin Powell needs to work on his unresolved mommy issues. His incessant whining about his mother is a major turn off. It is for this reason I politely deleted all of his begging for support as he campaigned.

I can appreciate his outreach to other woman beaters as a reformed woman beater, but again, the incessant mommy bashing gets on the last nerve.

Even as he moaned about his mortgage crisis, he was still bashing his mom. She didn't teach him how to manage his money. I don't suppose she taught him how to have sex either, but I am suare he figured THAT out!

As I think of it, you KNOW Adam was a "brother". Peak at Genesis and note that God told him BEFORE Eve was created NOT to eat of a certain tree. He disobeyed...and doesn't the buck stop with the "leader" or "head"? Blamed the WOMAN and Negroes have been stuck on stupid since. LOL! And far too many BW STILL spend too much time listening to the devil, much to their detriment. LOL!

Until Black folks develop the muscle of thinking for themselves and in keeping with their best interests, the corrupt Fords will reign in TN and folks will continue to vote for the Negro Powell laments now. Oh! and don't let me forget...Obama will be RE-elected because of his blackish skin. LOL!

FN, your little side bar with the crazed white chick that disfigured HERSELF is cute. Are you REALLY indicating that you had no idea that Black Women have shared in ALL OF THE ILLS THAT HAVE BEFALLEN BLACK MEN?!!!! We could not be castrated, so gang rape PRIOR to our lynching was the sexual torture we suffered. You Negroes need to get real! Around the same time this lying female was garnering sympathy and donations, while instigating the acceleration of racist black woman bashing--which Negro males were all too happy to weigh in on; there actually WAS a black woman assaulted with acid. Somehow THAT did not capture the headlines...

Thrasher said...

I resent what Wayne aka FN is projecting tonite getting rid of Black power is never a good proposition for Black people....Trashing wisdom and discardimg our elders only gives points to the ruling class...


Our communities are very fragile and vunerable now many of us are operating on life support and the only assets we have that is currency to used in a fucked up economic and global market that views urban niggers as coffin bait is our seniors and elders even flawed fools sometimes like Rangel and others...

No Wayne's advice tonight is as worthless as contracts, miranda rights, phnony pleas and immunity offers from white da's who suffer from acute penis envy..

We must never kcik Black wisdom to the curb..Never

Alicia, we've gone through this song and dance already. I've been Politically active since 15. Ran for office the year after I graduate from college, here's my info on my first race, Alicia. I was also involved in the reparations movement in New Haven.

Thrasher, uh, yeah.......I'm not getting into your personal beef with Field. And I'm not for one to disrespect or disregard the contribution of Black politicians to our struggle.

But maybe you should read some New York City political history. Rangel came to power by tarring and feathering Adam Clayton Powell Jr for doing the same thing he's been accused of now. Any he's not been a friend of Black progressive community -- he's a Harlem power broker who takes care of the other Harlem Power Brokers, the and chain stores, churches and landlords that hold their purse strings and/or election turnout.

Rangel does some good, but he's still dirty and has been in office since the my brother and God-brother were born. And, like so many Black politicians, he's made sure that Keys to the Castle our out of the reach of the next generation.

Black city politics don't work by election often, they work by appointment. And that crap has to change.

Alicia - a there aren't 23 trillion things to hate about Obama, that's just in your head. Its no worse than Bush and most of our problems were caused by the deregulation of Reagan, Bush (I&II) and Clinton.

Again, Smiley like many other Black professional pundits are singing sour grapes. Trust me, if Obama came on his Asinine 'Self Congratulating Educated Coon Yack Fest'...er, I'm sorry, 'State of Black America' he'd be Obama's new best friend.

Thrasher, don't patronize you sanctimonious prick!!!

Are you from the New York Metro? Did you live in the City? I am an East Coast native and spent 5 years in the North Bronx/Yonkers Area. Rangel has sold progressives down the river plenty in Harlem -- and that's from Black politicians in the city. If anything, he keeps white power brokers all too happy.

There's a reason Harlem is over run with yuppies and Columbia buying brownstones and Starbucks pushing out bodegas - Rangel greased the right wheels in city hall and Albany.

So spare the 'now there son' crap. I know politics and I know my streets,fam.

Anonymous said...

LAC, I agree with you. Rangel has GOT to go. He has been ripping off our people too long. That is what makes me sad and mad. I am sad that we have black politicians who would do that to their people. I am mad because there are dumbasses like Thrasher who keep voting for them. Not only is that dumb, that is ignorant.

i had never heard of powell til this post. i went back and read this,

http://newsone.com/nation/kevinpowell/kevin-powell-my-troubled-financial-life-mirrors-many-in-america-opinion/


and came away with two thoughts:

he is a good writer and his challenge to townes was eloquent and inspiring and on point.

but...as far as him personally? he calls himself a "regular" person with "regular" debts, yet admits to spending the 90s in a drug/alcohol stupor.

i see no acceptance of his own role his financial pit, beyond saying he was young and foolish. his mom never taught him financial literacy and he never attended a workshop on empowerment. SMH!

what exactly qualified him to be a member of congress more than townes?

and black people seem to like form over substance any day the politician who seems like one of them is far more important than the politician who can affect change why da phukk did sharpe james win for thirty years straight before booker ousted him? and it took booker two tries to do it! negroes r stuck in superficiality and appearances which is why our politicians r usually corrupt liars with nothing to offer but their own egos

this is why that sack of cat bucetas is such a bane to humanity she represents everything that is wrong with people especially black people she thrives off discord and creating chaos she thrives of negatively speaking about people she disagrees with and she thrives off other people thinking shes smart she is a person of the lie who has aligned with wickedness just like so many black people fall for wicked politicians cuz were easily deceived by someone with swag or quasi swag

white folks get tricked too by asswipes like glen beck and sara palin they have absolutley NO substance but guts and hatred and inciting white rage birds of a feather though...

maria by ur own analysis he was not anymore fit to be a congressmen then the other guy but like eye said above black people vote based on swagger or quasi swagger anybody with substance is disqualified from running check this by looking at cities that have majority black populations and majority black politicians the people who should have won the races cuz they're smart with vision usually don't win cuz they dont have enough swag negroes think like this and its pitiful

I agree that progressives must form an insurgent movement to force the Democratic Party to address our agenda. However, there is no "ghetto dictatorship". The voters spoke. Instead of whining, Kevin Powell should learn from his mistakes and prepare for the next election. Winning elections is a science.

Great point! Politics in A-merrty-ca (as other places) has become more form over substance and people voting against their own self interest.

"agree that progressives must form an insurgent movement to force the Democratic Party to address our agenda. However, there is no "ghetto dictatorship". The voters spoke.

He doesn't even have to pay for the tips.

this is one of the very few blogs i'll say this on, but a lot of our community's leadership are corrupt motherfuckers of the worst order. a peek behind the scenes is usually pretty ugly, and the men are generally far worse than the women. we have some good reps, but Kevin's not wrong to be so shrill. we really need young blood, but without young voters black progressives are sort of fucked. the churchies and old ladies who do most of our voting have been corralled by a system that really does reward ghetto dictators, who in turn use that power to make sure that those voters always come out for them. but it's on purpose that so much of "our" leadership do not spend much time on youth voter outreach. they like things just the way they are.

no_slappz said...

field,

Your buddy Powell needs some advice.

Here it is. If he has any plans of running successfully, he has to get on the November ballot.

Too late for getting on the ballot this year. But next time...

Here's the secret in NY City -- he has to change his party affiliation and run as a Republican.

That's what Democrats who want to actually get a shot at running for office do.

The incumbent Democrats control their offices until they retire, die or go to jail, and they do go to jail. See Clarence Norman, one of my personal favorites. There are others.

Bottom line -- if a Democratic candidate wants to be on a ballot in his lifetime but he lacks the backing of the Brooklyn Democratic Party Political Machines, then he must switch parties and run as a Republican.

The strategy has worked well for many, including Mayor Bloomberg.

no_slappz said...

la coincidental, you wrote:

Rangel won for the same reason Bloomberg is mayor in NYC -- too many MC's and not enough mics.

Rangel won in the latest primary because almost no one votes in primaries except for loyal followers of incumbents.

The ONLY way to clean house is through term limits.

As history has shown, nothing good comes of a politician holding his office more than 20 or 25 years.

Thus, I'd limit senators to 4 terms and representatives to 12 terms. I'd also make retirement at 75 mandatory for Supreme Court justices.

Turnover of officeholders is the key to better government. Otherwise, the scoundrels obtain a lock on their offices, which creates powerful fiefdoms that are inherently corrupt.

Roadbiker, "I submit Ron 'Wake me up for dinner' Dellums, Oakland Ca mayor."

Now, now. you're talking about Granny's favorite mayor, but what black politician has done anything for Blacks? Face it. Blacks are for black politicians to use for his/her own gain, not to represent the people who voted for them. And they get re-elected, again, and again, and again.

Blacks keep voting the same useless bums back in office and 'rationalize' it- like Agape2010 and Thrasher do. Only in Black America where ignorance is the norm and low self-esteem abounds, can a phenomena such as this happen. It's so sad.

That is so true, and the reason our government is so corrupt. I hope the tea partiers sweep Congress. Being an independent, I bet independents will vote them in. One thing for sure, it won't be those lying corrupt Democrats.

LAC: "The Tea Party is as populist as Lady Gaga is a natural blond. Its a lobbyist funded rent-a-mob of middle aged, angry white people enraged about the economy AND that a Negro is the White House."

Do you ever get tired of regurgitating that mediacrat propaganda LAC? The Tea Party may not be made for prime time, but it is the most legitimate grass roots movement of our lifetime.

Here we have a post lamenting (among other things) the entrenched mindset of the black electorate, returning by rote politicians representing a single party state of Black America, who are interested only in protecting their own spot over the public feeding trough. And the best you can do is mindlessly repeat manufactured, bigoted slander on a citizens movement that has risen up against entrenched interests.

Come on LAC, I know you can think this through. You are a better man than that.

Don't know if you have noticed, but LAC isn't the only mindless one who is against the citizen's movement in our country. Just say "Tea Party" and the folks on this blog go ape-shit...no pun intended.

hey, AB, read what i wrote. i didn't "judge" him. i asked
WHAT MAKES HIM MORE QUALIFIED THAN TOWNS?

and i'd take YOUR endorsement as a sign to run the other way.

here's what i wrote:

he is a good writer and his challenge to townes was eloquent and inspiring and on point.

but...as far as him personally? he calls himself a "regular" person with "regular" debts, yet admits to spending the 90s in a drug/alcohol stupor.

i see no acceptance of his own role his financial pit, beyond saying he was young and foolish. his mom never taught him financial literacy and he never attended a workshop on empowerment. SMH!

what exactly qualified him to be a member of congress more than townes?

i know it's too much to ask you to think, AB, rather than blurt and attack but towns and rangel are "icons." the point is more must be asked. and demanded for the people.

maria, "but...as far as him personally? he calls himself a "regular" person with "regular" debts, yet admits to spending the 90s in a drug/alcohol stupor."

We need men like him in Congress. He is a regular person who tells the truth and does not hide. He has grown as a person. Townes has not.

The answer is term limits.

Incumbency, especially entreched congressional incumbency, is a powerful tool.

It means money, name recognition, and special interests chits.

Congressmen spend most of their time in Washington making deals.

Powell would fare a lot better running for a City Council or a State Senate seat.

Corey Booker and Tony Williams showed that local political dictatorships can be upset when you can demonstrate how you will effect people's daily lives for the positive.

"Does anybody here know who Bill Thomson is, lol."

Thompson is the former Comptroller of NYC who recently lost his run for Mayor.

Wow, this board is hoping for a Saturday afternoon!!

To No_Slappz, yes Rangel is a powerful incumbent, and incumbency is a powerful weapon. But if the progressive opposition weren't all over the place and splitting the field 4-5 different ways, it would be possible to beat Rangel. Get behind one dude and go for it. I give credit the Tea Party in Delaware for understanding that.


And I have to disagree with you and Uptown Steve on term limits -- they're the lazy way out of being responsible citizens and gives too much power to staffers, party brokers, lobbyists other unelected operatives in government.

Just look at the mess in California. We can't pass a budget because Sacramento is polluted with 2-3 term party hacks on both sides worried about grandstanding and their next gig.

You have state assemblymen who are gone before they learn where the bathroom is. And because it takes years to build relationships in your party and across the aisle, nothing gets done because the state assembly aren't together long enough to learn how to work together.

If you want the bums out of office, vote them out. That's the way the Constitution was designed. Don't wait for the shot clock to run out and hope for a victory.

To Anon@1252 - go read a newspaper or something other than Fox News. The original 'Tea Party' meetings were specifically engineered by insurance lobbyists to water down and ultimate destroy Health Care reform. This is the Karl Rove "Brooks Brothers Brigade" on steriods. The main difference is that unlike those College Repubs in the Brigade, these are average middle America white folks who believe the bullshit the far right is selling ........ like you.

The financial bailouts can go either way - there are rational arguments for and against them. But for working class Americans to rail against any solid reforms to ensure that stock brokers aren't using grandma's deed as collateral on bad bets is just stupid. And in what universe do people (other than miners and refinery workers) fight for oil & gas companies not be regulated? And last time I checked, Tea Party leaders nor their puppet master Glenn Beck were urging the Senate to extend unemployment to help millions, Republicans, Democrats, Greens and Independents who lost their jobs.


True populism rise from the people in the interest of the people. The only people who benefit from deregulation and lack of a social safety net are the uber-wealth.

You've been, as Malcolm said, bamboozled and hoodwinked. As a Tea Party supporter, you're not a 'Patriot' you're a unwitting but willing pawn for corporate oligarchy and ultra-right ideologues, playing upon your ignorance and fears.

maria said...

maybe the folks in brooklyn don't like being talked down to, like "ghetto" dictatorship. and obviously i read when i posted, because i quoted from it.

here's some contributors to the "average/regular" guy. Large contributions, which are donations of $200 or more, have to be itemized and reported to the Federal Election Committee. Powell’s list was comprised mostly of celebrities, entrepreneurs, teachers, academics, and non-profit directors. It’s a “Who’s Who” among the maximum $2,400 contributors— the Brooklyn-born-and-bred comedian, Chris Rock, and his wife, Malaak Compton-Rock; hip-hop fashion designer Marc Ecko; actor and author Hill Harper; and football player Julius Pepper of the Chicago Bears, just to name a few. Others such as Doug Herzog, president of MTV Networks; Harvard law professor Charles Ogletree; and Shelly Serdahely, the executive director of Men Stopping Violence, have donated $1,000 or more to the campaign. This impressive list of contacts stretches through Georgia, California, Florida, Texas, New Jersey, and all around the tri-state area. Only 9 out of Powell’s 110 big donors live in his Brooklyn district."

again, asked and unanswered: what made him more qualified than towns?

LACoincidental said...

Maria, that's another point -- Powell made a Progressive Celebrity classic mistake - they over play and rely too much on name recognition. Its makes one seem aloof.

If Powell wants to be taken seriously, aim small and build. Run for city council, make a name for yourself other than "that angry Black guy from the Real World". Work with in the community. Go to a church or a mosque, if you're a person of faith.

From my personal experience, its hard to run as a young unknown. You need to build some street cred in the amatuer league before you got for the title shot.

Maria, this doesn't change the fact that guys like Towns have built in empires and that voter apathy has kept a guy like this in since the 80's. But you're right, from the article, Powell relied too much on his celebrity.

(Maybe Kevin Powell forgot that most of the 18-25 year old he was aiming for were in kindergarten when he was on MTV. They wouldn't know him from Steezo the Fly Negro or Black Moon. All the 25 - 40 cats thought he was little bitch back then and haven't change our opinion all that much.)

"And I have to disagree with you and Uptown Steve on term limits -- they're the lazy way out of being responsible citizens and gives too much power to staffers, party brokers, lobbyists other unelected operatives in government."

You make a great point.

But here's the problem.

"...if the progressive opposition weren't all over the place and splitting the field 4-5 different ways, it would be possible to beat Rangel. Get behind one dude and go for it. I give credit the Tea Party in Delaware for understanding that.

The progressives in black districts aren't that far apart on issues and each candidate is driven solely to themselves elected.

The Tea party is on an extreme ideological mission that was ignited by the election of a progressive black man to the Presidency.

That has galvanized a significant segment of the population to become active and combative.

People in Rangel's district and other liberal areas see him as a bulwark against the righties and sire his seniority as a reason to keep him.

maria said...

LAC--i am not even sure how it's done, but powell had so many things against him. they weren't skeletons in his closet--they were flesh and blood with all the details that were known. i am not sure he can overcome his history (or present).

however, i have no knowledge of mr. powell other than what i've read today. i have not done any kind of substantive analysis.

that said, i am fresh from being actively involved in a losing campaign in which a former state delegate tried to unseat the 32-year incumbent in the state senate. same party; primary race. no opponent in the general.

my girl came AWFULLY close, ran really hard, got all the right endorsements, including washpost-- but in the end lost by 3%. negative campaigning and the party machine behind the incumbent (the current governor and state senate leadership backed her) were her undoing.

the celebrity angle--the party machine -- cuts both ways. another local person lost a year ago because she had some money from a neighboring city and her opponent was able to paint her as beholden to outside interests. the other city was 2 miles away!

coincidentially, some board of ed folks i was also backing (and i have no money--this is all sweat equity i invest in them) also lost, against incumbents. but they figure it takes four elections to get in. you've got to be in it for the long haul.

Thrasher said...

I simply did not understand how FN can chase down rednecks 24/7 but carves out a space for white racist jewish people and then he is proud of it and actually brags about it...

With regard to LAC his insights reflect to often the knowledge of the chatter class, the google generation..

Truth is I respect both of them quite a lot but I don't know if I could take them with me to the end..I think both would find a way to cut and run ..

FN cleary has some strong inner issues with Black American Males of course I have always observed that from Black males from the islands and africa..

LAC to often reminds me of a Black apologist always making excuses for white folks but never extending the range of understanding with regard to Black decay and decadence..

Recently I have recieved a ton of hate mail directly to my home and I have involved the local cops all of them have offered up an opinion it is a 50/50 WHite authors and Black authors..I am not at all surprised by white folks hating on me but my own people..that hurts

Oh, now I'm gonna cry Thrash....look at my tears. Yeah, whatever.

Thrasher, I'm far from a lightweight. And if you had taken and paid attention in High School civics, you probably wouldn't snipe at half the things I said. And you'd probably realize that I agree with you more often than not.


And btw, I actually understand exactly what UTS and Maria said. I never said it was easy. Hell, I know its not easy to get past incumbents.

Simply put, there are many reasons why incumbents win over outsiders. One is the power of incumbency - you go with the Devil you know. The second is lack of cohesion on the ground, too many indians wanting to be chief. And as you stated, too many so-called 'new progressives' are often egomaniacs with little to no real world experience and could fit their supporters in a phone booth.

Thrasher, sometimes we agree and we don't always have to. Fine.

But I don't take kindly to personal attacks or irrational blathering. I can play the dozens with the best of them and I can poke holes in stupid arguments with little effort.

Like you said, the invective from the goobers is to be expected but screw the handkerchief heads.

They are lost, confused and will ultimately be humiliated by the very people they suck up to.

Happens every time, believe me.

Me and a couple of friends went down to the Black Republican gathering at Clydes in DC last night for happy hour.

These negroes are motivated only by money and exposure.

One dude from Connecticut admitted to me that as soon as he started promoting the "birther" issue his phone started ringing off the hook from Tea party operatives and rightwing groups asking him to appear at events.

And he said that he's sure that Obama was born in Hawaii.

BLACK ICONS. You wonder why people say Blacks dont think and vote for skin color? Well, try those thoughts on for size.

Truth is despite the lousy and sometimes most dismal Black leadership in America it could never be as worthless and destructive as White Leadership in the public as well as private sector..

Our nation's underdeveloped leadership which is a reflection of white culture has damaged the entire planet for centuries.

Truth is White Cultural Models simply are not great leaders nor can they cultivate and harvest them..

WHite folks do not create MLK, MANDELA, JESUS, MALCOM X, white leaders are 2nd tier figures FDR, Churchill, Lincoln, etc.. Very few are females and very few are creative and artistic icons as well...

Even in USA despite our 2 domestic holocausts and the shortage of Black males( less than 7% of Adult Male Population in USA) we still dominate the arts, sports, leadership, etc..

Thrasher, if you are honest, there probably aren't too many Blacks, if any, you could count on to the end. Blacks have shown that they will 'cut and run', when pressured by Whites, or there is money involved. Haven't you noticed? There's always a lot of words and promises of allegiance to black brotherhood and sisterhood, but in the end no one is there. It's been that way for a long, long time.

BTW, what makes you any different from 'cutting and running' when most bm tend to sing the same bullshit tune? What makes you so trustworthy and righteous?

Fyi, this has nothing to do with bm from the islands, it's bm from the states as well. BM have a 'complex', period. It comes from being powerless and fearful in A-merry-ca for a long, long time.

I DO agree with you about Field's inconsistency on being a FIELD NEGRO. On some occasions, he is one. On others, he is not. No one is perfect. His support of Israeli's-who will tell you that they hate Blacks-is some serious sick stuff, imo. But that's part of Field's humanness...he's not God. And Thrasher, neither are YOU. What makes Field a typical common Black man is his apparent incapacity to admit mistakes.

You see, that is the sickness that holds the black community hostage..i.e., to admit you're wrong is to admit that you are weak. Now, that is some twisted shit that blocks one from looking at oneself and will keep an entire race imprisoned and blinded from the truth, for a long long time.

For that reason alone, you won't find many BM, if any, you could count on to be with you to the end. Most won't look in the mirror, NOT because they don't want to, but because they are afraid of looking weak. It's some heavy stuff to carry around.

No Black icon could do as much damage because Blacks don't have the power Whites have. The more power you have, the more damage you can do. However, it does not minimize how corrupt Blacks can be and the damage they do to a race who is already in the ditch. Get real, Thrasher. Stop making out like the character of corrupt black politians aren't as bad and therefore, deserve to remain in their jobs while the screw over their black voters. That is bullshit.

It's sick and pathetic.

This is to any black man on the board.

Isn't it true that Field has posted many threads taking black men to task for failing to be responsible fathers, husbands and citizens?

But all he has to is post a thread about a black individual female behaving badly and watch the shrieks of "hating black women" or "sexist" rants come spewing for many of the sisters on the board.

When the hell have any of them looked at themselves and owned up to any failure or responsibility?

Why is it that idiots always start talking about they dick? Is that all you can come back with in a debate about real things? Yup those corrupt politicians love you. YOu so stupid and infantile you just start talking about your dick instead of asking why they rob you and havent done shit. You yourself explained why Blacks will never move up and will continue to vote Black...because you said the "Truth is despite the lousy and sometimes most dismal Black leadership in America it could never be as worthless and destructive as White Leadership:

There you go, so a thief, incompetent low life got your vote because he is Black, he sure do represent YOU...

Thrasher, "Steve,

BTW I have little regard for Black folks with low self esteem..Black apologists rank almost as low as rednecks and racist white jews and racist asians and racists indians

Just saying...."

You using Steve as your sounding board and sense of validation? That's hilarious. Welcome back to FN blog, shithead. Things have changed since you've been gone. There has been some cloning of a few niggas JUST LIKE YOU. How do like us, Mr. big dick? Btw, what good is a big dick when no one wants your UNLOVED and UNLOVABLE ass? Well, I guess your hand has to do the loving. teehee, teehee.

When are you going to realize that your weak taunts and harrassment doesn't work on righteous black men?

Uts, "The anonymous black protofemme is back to tell us bm how weak and flawed we are but will never own up to their weaknesses, failure and paranoia.

This is a zero sum game with certain sisters convinced they've got it totally together and black men have to catch up with them in order for us to be a positive community."

First of all, it wasn't a bf who wrote the comment you are so defensive about. Your thinking feeling and words only proves that the comment is on target for bm like you. You should really take it to heart. It'll make you a better man and more human. But everyone knows that is not possible for a narcissist like you. Don't the bw on this blog tell you so? Now you got the same message from a bm. Maybe this will cause you to pause? Ah. I don't think so.LOL

So you are supposedly a black man?

The convienence of being an anonymous pussy on these boards is that you can pretend to be anything except a person of character and conviction.

However I'm certain that you're either FP's latest incarnation or a white racist troll.

Anyway, whenever you are ready to self-reflect and acknowledge that you're a flawed human being and just as culpable in the failings in relationships and the community at large as the people you relentlessly seek to lecture, I'm ready to talk.

Until then, KISS MY PROUD SELF-ASSURED BLACK MALE ASS.

Self-reflection? You are really hilarious. Where did you get that idea from, my comments urging you to look into yourself? Steve, words are cheap, but behavior tells everything. You have proven for years that you not only are NEVER ready to talk, but you are unable to listen. That's why you are a narcissist who is beyond help. LOL you and Thrasher must have been raised in the same hood with the same parents...LOL

Voter apathy is one of the biggest problems with politics on any side of the aisle. You have people who give more of a damn about the VMAs or Lady GaGa's next stunt than attempting to shape the future of politics with their votes. Maybe because they've had it drilled in them that their vote eventually means not even a hill of beans. Maybe because they just don't care.

Usually it takes something drastic to get people aroused from their apathy. The ascent of Barack Obama from being some senator from Illinois to being on the edge of being the first Black president woke some folks up. You should have seen the lines at my precinct during election day -- and it wasn't because any machines were broken. Too bad people went BACK TO SLEEP after putting Obama into the Oval Office.

Apathy plus incumbency is a hell of a combo to overcome.

"Then stay out of my beef with Wayne ..."

Or how about keeping the beef off the blog? There's always direct email exchange, unless the Field had enough sense to block most if not all of your addresses.

"Kevin Powell seems smart enough to be a Republican. The entrenched interests of the democrat party will continue to shut him out."

Why would Powell want to be a Republican? The GOP loves using its black captives as window dressing. Otherwise, Michael Steele wouldn't have been reminded of his status as a black "figurehead" of the GOP by the real leaders of the party (including Rush Limbaugh and his golden mic).

Yeah, he'll get in on the ground floor alright.....as a shoeshine boy.

Mack,I have agreed to give some consideration about moving on with regard to Wayne's aka FN twisted respect for white jewish racists who have contempt for Black people or szwartzas ( nigger in yiddish)..

Of course much more revelant issues are at stake but I will always remember FN's bias on this issue..It is troubling especially for a Black man who chases redneck racism frequently..

thrasher,

Inasmuch as you know far less than you think you do, it's clear a spelling lesson is required.

You wrote:

Black people or szwartzas ( nigger in yiddish)...

It's S-C-H-V-A-R-T-Z-E

Based on the letters in your word, you're referring to something that might be a Polish wart.

Thrasher said...

NS

I am not surprised you know the correct spelling obviously it is a word you employ often...

BTW could you the next time you say it take the bagel out of your mouth that muffles the sound..

THAT was my original point. I have long been familiar with this whiner. The years pass and he continues bashing his mother and blame shifting for his poor choices. Typical bm behavior. Blame the womenfolk and whites.

What qualifies him? Well, he is YOUNGER! Lol! And you know bmale sacredom dictates that BM are victims. They cannot be oppressors because they don't have power. You didn't know? That's right, you didn't know who Kevin Powell was until this post. LOL!
