It is my opinion that at this point in time in the Black American Community Development Journey - there are far more damage done to our interests as a result of the lack of INSTITUTIONAL INTEGRITY ENFORCEMENT than there is from UNFETTERED Racism. (Unfettered Racism - is a "racial attack" - of whatever form that is unconstrained by the systems of justice, media shame/scrutiny - and the actions of the good White folks at Media Matters that publicize this information to Black folks)
To read the various "Black Progressive Propaganda Blogs" that have popped up recently and note their content - I am further convinced that the year 2012 will be the great exposure TO BLACK PEOPLE about all that we have become - after being CONSCIOUSLY INTEGRATED.
When I read our blogs I assume a "Dark-Matter Analysis" disposition. I read what you talk about from the perspective that YOU AIN'T GONNA assign the same granular analysis to the present ESTABLISHMENT that you put into power. I didn't say "Obama". I am talking about the entire network of operatives that you are using to carry out Bayard Rustin's vision.
Politics 365 Blog - On The Economy Mitt Romney Is No Tim Tebow - By Alton Drew
We are faced with a crisis in capital. Meaning: we have less of it. Yet, it is surprising that former Governor Mitt Romney has not delivered a bolder plan for getting businesses, especially small businesses, moving again.
The minority community has felt how dwindling equity negatively impacts the ability to survive an economic downturn. Members of the community who wanted to start a business to supplement or replace income saw the piggy bank called home equity evaporate between 2005 and 2009. According to the Pew Research Council, Hispanic households saw the mean value of their home equity fall from $99,983 in 2005 to $49,145 in 2009. Black Americans also took a big hit, with their median value of home equity falling from $76,910 in 2005 to $59,000 in 2009.
While the Obama Administration recognizes that the economy is becoming a knowledge-based one, it has purposefully mired itself in a strategy that calls for attacking the finance industry and preventing the natural flow of wealth transfer by slowing down the foreclosure process with its mortgage modification programs. The Obama economic strategy gives Romney and company an opportunity to sneak in with a bolder capital distribution plan.
Question is: Will Mr. Romney stick with the” reliable spouse” image by being slow and steady? Or will he show the energy and progressiveness the Office of the President actually calls for?
Several years ago I coined the term "Keep Your Enemies On Trial So You Don't Have To Indict Your Friends As You Call Them To The Witness Stand". This largely from watching the antics of MSNBC.
I want to move beyond the argument of PARTISANSHIP and IDEOLOGY.
The flaw in what we are seeing with the propagandists IS that the Black consumer of there messages are NOT receiving in depth analysis of the entire set of issues that will allow them to make DECISIONS - that go beyond their present prevailing preferences - but instead increasing the chances that the future outcomes in the areas that we control will improve.
Ironically - it is this construction of a more "representative model" of real world economics that is necessary for the Black community in its future state to prosper. Those people who function as agents for the political operations of America - will also be the primary ones blocking future progress IF it entails disconnecting our conscious loyalties from the teams in the "Malcolm X Political Football Game". Some people like playing the role of the "pig skin".
