When black votes can no longer be taken for granted.

Image result for black lives matter netroots images     Given the "Black Lives Matter'' protest that jumped off at the Netroots Nation convention, recently, I believe that the following article is apropos.

"We are now in the midst of the 2016 presidential election, which means both parties are pandering to their bases as well as to unlikely voters who may be swayed to their respective sides. Although it’s early, this election cycle has already been dominated by questions of which candidate will garner “the black vote,” as if black people are monolithic. Given that thousands of black people are currently leading a social justice movement across the nation that the media has dubbed the “Black Lives Matter" movement,  the black electorate appears to be at the forefront of politicians’ minds.
 
There is a history of black communities voting Democrat — that is, when we are actually allowed to vote, as we were historically targeted for explicitly racist disenfranchisement in the 20th century and felon disenfranchisement in the 21st century. During the 20th century, the Democratic Party was well known for instituting anti-black policies in the South such as Jim Crow, poll taxes and literacy tests. Since then, the Democratic Party has shifted its image to racial indifference, while the Republican Party picked up its racially hostile characteristics.

Today black communities continue to be betrayed by both sides of the aisle in this toxic political system, which prioritizes exuberant campaign spending over protecting human rights. Both Ferguson and Baltimore saw uprisings in the face of police terror in the last year. And each city watched Democratic city and state politicians lead violent militarized occupation in response to protests, including the National Guard, tear gas, rubber bullets and riot police. The fact is that neither political party is “for black people,” but white liberal and moderate voters continually impose upon black communities the candidates they feel are most sympathetic to black experiences.

A bizarre phenomenon has developed out of this — Bernie Sanders supporters lurking in the dark trolling shadows of Twitter to condescendingly tell black people what’s best for us inside a system designed to crush us.  One person even went to so far as to call Sanders “one of the first Black Lives Matter Activists.” Others juxtapose his image with captions of Martin Luther King Jr. quotes, and thrust such egregious depictions at black Twitter users. Sanders supporters list his involvement with the civil rights movement as though they have now come to collect on his debt — black people must repay Sanders for his service by voting him into office.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton supporters practice the “it’s time we’ve had a woman president” method with black women, as if Hillary’s supposed feminism has ever been intersectional or inclusive between supporting her husband Bill Clinton’s mass incarceration policies and spewing the blasphemous “All Lives Matter” phrase in Ferguson, Missouri.

White supporters of both candidates appear to share one common fear: losing the black vote. Above all, these supporters seem to be most concerned about black voters not supporting whoever ends up the Democratic nominee, thus ceding the White House to a Republican candidate. Bernie’s and Hillary’s rabid bases shake in their boots at the idea that black people could vote Republican, or for a third party — or simply not vote at all. “Do you really want the clown car in the White House?” they warn of the Republican candidates, as if they are unable to view life outside of the liberal-vs.-conservative political dichotomy. Black people don’t have such a privilege — we have been fighting simply to be treated as humans for centuries.
This entire culture of white people feeling as though they know what’s best for blacks is rooted in paternalism. It is pervasive throughout history and founded in slave-master ideologies, it ignores the autonomy of black people and continuously disrespects our intelligence. When blacks were organizing around the 15th Amendment, some white peers believed black people weren’t educated enough for enfranchisement and feared they would potentially offset liberal power. The truth is that the left has always used black communities to fuel their political power, without ever truly prioritizing black issues. The right remains blatantly racist, but while the left has chosen not to ascribe to outright racial hostility, it still continues to practice racial indifference while stepping on the backs of blacks to protect its privilege and political influence.
 
White liberals generally do not want to be racist, although not many truly understand systemic racism, but they fear how they will protect their white and class privilege in the event that the blatantly racist political party takes power. How will they sustain policies that benefit the white middle class without the black voting base? Will they need to shift their racial attitudes to align with the repugnant right in an attempt to infiltrate the Republican Party? Either way, they are surely not concerned with the opinions or experiences of black people, as they chastise and attempt to bully us into supporting their candidates. Black people are lambasted for daring to vocalize our disillusionment with the political system — and it doesn’t take long for the white liberal who once posed as an ally to employ the “black people don’t vote” negative stereotype to back us into the corner of choosing to either refute the trope or investing time into invalidating it." {More}

For the record, I welcome the idea of making progressives accountable when it comes to their positions as it relates to black issues. I despise the paternalistic politics of some of those on the left as much as I despise the racist and exclusionary politics of those on the right. I blogged about this years ago, and my position has not changed.

There is nothing wrong with making liberal politicians accountable for their positions on certain issues as it relates to black folks. They have long been able to rely on our votes, it is long past time that we make them stop taking it for granted.

Field, you are full of it. You have been kissing liberal politicians asses for years as if they are gods. You have done this by finding fault constantly with the 'right' while ignoring anything wrong with the 'left'. You have used your posts to influence Blacks to vote 'Democrat' without questions, and to ignore the huge downfalls of cities run by liberal politicians.

Now you are posting more bullshit. As a bm you cannot be trusted. You are soooo depressing.

We white progressives are as attatched to our privilege as the reactionaries Field. just not deliberately invoking it is hard; recognizing & avoiding it when it attaches on its own is near impossible. This country socializes is to it.

I'm watching dash cam video of the Sandra Bland arrest on the Lawrence O'Donnell show right now. The cop was out of control. He probably killed her to try to cover up his misconduct. She stood up for her rights while he was arresting her. She sure didn't seem like someone who would kill herself.

Jesse Ventura has talked about prosecuting cops the same way other people are prosecuted, etc. He would have answered the questions a lot better than Bernie Sanders and O'Malley. It is a problem that so far very overwhelmingly effects black people. It isn't an "all lives matter" issue. Holding cops accountable would help a lot, but Democrats/Republicans won't even hold people like Dick Cheney, who caused a million and a half deaths, accountable. That is an "all lives matter" issue. Unfortunately, Jesse Ventura is supporting Sanders and he will only think about running if Sanders isn't nominated.

You guys have pretty much outlived your usefulness by now; it's no surprise politicians use your votes then throw you under the bus.

Of course, you actually BELIEVE the crap you hear in the media - "Black Lives Matter", "Justice For Trayvon/Mike/Mumia/Sandra", et al - so it fries your puny brains when whites do the opposite of what they say. You're like children that way. You think because someone said something to you, they're going to come through on their promises.

But, as Earth, Wind & Fire once sang, "That's the way-hay, of the world ..."

I'm as liberal as they come and I don't have a real grip on prejudice past and current...never had to being white. I hate prejudice but think I know it when I see it in others but I know I have been preconditioned to it after 60+ years of life. I'll never understand totally but I take each recognition of my own prejudice it as a small victory. That said, I think before anyone worries about the vote of any segment of the population being taking for granted, our efforts should be applied to making it easier for all to vote and getting folks to do it.

Remember this is Texas. Blacks don't have rights. Laws exist in Texas to give Whites rights but not Blacks. For the life of me, I don't understand why Blacks live in Texas. Sooner or later they will be pulled over by the cops and beaten.

Sandra Bland did not hang herself, the cops hung her. Unfortunately, nothing will be done except maybe giving the cop administrative leave WITH PAY.

Prejudice means to pre-judge. I am not pre-judging blacks, I am JUDGING them. I have had a lifetime of experience with them, and 19 out of 20 are no good. I could care less about the remaining 5%. They are merely mediocre.

But you probably live in some Whitopia, safe from Trayvon and La'Queesha. You can just love them from afar, like the rest of the progressive scum.

White folks love our music so maybe it's not so shitty. Oh yeah, they also vote the same too. 93% of us voted for the clearly superior candidate, we can't help the fact McCain chose the dumbest person on the planet as his running mate and Romney was just as awful. Now the Donald is leading the polls. Voting Republican would be like cheering for the Washington Generals.

Your trolls exemplify the concepts of white privilege and white male affirmative action. The election of Barack was a good example. Barack was an Ivy League grad with a law degree from one of the top law schools. His opponent graduated from the bottom of his class and was only admitted to the naval academy because of affirmative action, crashed a plane in training and was a mediocre student and pilot but kept getting advanced. Let's not even discuss his running mate who couldn't even tell us what she reads and would have embarrassed the country with her pregnant teen daughter (hmmmm, Barack doesn't seem to have that problem with his girls does he?). A horrible student/pilot and trailer trash vs a smart and classy blah man and they wonder why folks voted for him? Well except 90% of white southern voters who voted for the inferior white guy because just like the trolls here they are racists and didn't want a ni@@er in the WH. Thing is the majority saw reality and he was elected twice. Funny that. Looks like we were right afterall.

Dear Kinky_Con, why do you use the word 'blah'? That is a racist term used by Santorum. Quite frankly, I am tired of you Whites making up more degrading labels for African Americans. Haven't you do enough to us over the centuries? Must you continue this evil?

Kinky_Con said...

"as if black people are monolithic"

Blahs are monolithic in the way they vote. Look at they voting patterns. To pretend other wise is dishonest.

A few examples-

Alvin Michael Greene-A blah Democrat who didn't debate or hold any meetings with voters. Yet, he got most of the blah vote and the dem nomination because of the way his last name was spelled.


Dave Wilson- A white Republican who blah voters never saw got elected with the majority of blah votes by pretending to be black.


When a town in South Carolina wanted to use non-partisan ballots for the 2010 election, the Obama Administration argued by removing the 'D' from a candidates name, blacks wouldn't know who to vote for.


Let's look at what a Obama DOJ expert witness said about black voters when testifying against changes in North Carolina law.


It's also the case that -- well, yes, so it would, empirically more likely affect African Americans. Also, understanding within political science, that people who register to vote the closer and closer one gets to Election Day tend to be less sophisticated voters, tend to be less educated voters, tend to be voters who are less attuned to public affairs. That also tells me from the literature of political science that there are likely to be people who will end up not registering and not voting. People who correspond to those factors tend to be African Americans, and, therefore, that's another vehicle through which African Americans would be disproportionately affected by this law. -Charles Stewart


So blacks tend to be less sophisticated, less educated, and lower information voters.


"When black votes can no longer be taken for granted."

That day will only come when blacks rise up and leave the Democrat plantation. Until then? Blahs will get what they deserve.




"For the record, I welcome the idea of making progressives accountable when it comes to their positions"

Yeah, field welcomes the idea but never practices what he preaches. That might upset massa and cause field to lose his sit at massa's table.

PX, fathers usually love and care for their children, so what we see in display here everyday hardly qualifies as paternslistic.

In fact what we see with Field's trolls is a virtual version of what happened to Sandra Bland: Whooteemoos have a historically demonstrated problem with mouthy Blacks AKA niggers. And in times past, they kill us and call it suicide.

If dumbocrats are correct and the racists switched parties in the 60's (except for the most racist Byrd/Gore), why were Black people voting for the racist party before that?

If the racists changed parties, shouldn't the monolithic Black vote reflect that change?

1936 - 71%
1948 - 77%
1852 - 66%
1964 - 82% (82% dumbocrat vote as dumbocrats were fillerbusting the civil rights bill)

More children living in poverty now than during recession

"A higher percentage of children live in poverty now than did during the Great Recession, according to a new report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation released Tuesday.

About 22% of children in the U.S. lived below the poverty line in 2013, compared with 18% in 2008, the foundation’s 2015 Kids Count Data Book reported. In 2013, the U.S. Department of Human and Health Service’s official poverty line was $23,624 for a family with two adults and two children.

“The fact that it’s happening is disturbing on lots of levels,” said Laura Speer, the associate director for policy reform and advocacy at the Casey Foundation, a non-profit based in Baltimore. “Those kids often don’t have the access to the things they need to thrive.” The foundation says its mission is to help low-income children in the U.S. by providing grants and advocating for policies that promote economic opportunity."

Thanks for the link below that depicts the unbelievable vicious racist attitudes of cops in Jasper, TX.

In truth, Jasper TX is no different from the rest of the country. Although I will say that TX and OK are the two most violent racist states against Blacks. It is very difficult to find a police officer without profound prejudice against Blacks.

After 80+ years being Black in America I don't have much hope for any kind of change for the suffering bm. It's been this way since slavery and will continue to be unchanging in the future.

The assumption that the new generation is less biased is not true. Those cops in that video, and other videos are part of the upcoming generation. Take it from me, nothing has changed in the hearts and minds of Americans.

"Today black communities continue to be betrayed by both sides of the aisle..."

Person needs to expand his/her horizon. ALL COMMUNITIES continue to be betrayed by both sides--except corporate "communities" and billionaires. No need to parse it further; WHITE votes, as well as others, are being managed by million-dollar ad campaigns, the people are being tricked into voting against their own best interests (see Kansas, Wisconsin, etc.)--when they aren't gerrymandered into irrelevant slivers and when they can survive the obstacle course of I.D. voter registration, shorter polling place hours, etc.

Only one color matters any more, and it ain't white, it's GREEN. That color trumps (pardon the expression) all others.

A new report finds more U.S. children living in poverty...
Poverty rates are nearly double among African-Americans and American Indians...
poor communities marked by poor schools and a lack of a safe place to play...
It's impossible to overcome widening economic inequality in America...

If you want change, "stay united" and keep voting for the same people.

That's easy, poor whites accept and find comfort in their low status. Everybody knows that europeon people don't like each other or anyone else for that matter. If you don't believe me then why do they say, a dog is a man's best friend.(I would think a woman but... that's just what I think.)

Poor whites are just less likely to object because for whatever reason they are more complacent or accepting of their relegation to second class citizenship. They just want to separate, isolate and be left alone.
