Before I go into my analysis - I believe that it is important to express what came through my mind when I saw this campaign.
SURELY a Black man should be "down" with this type of campaign to raise awareness of RACISM in the minds of White folks. "What is the down side?" after all.
I saw the logic and reasoning of Tim Wise when I saw this campaign.
An effort that focuses on CHANGING WHITE FOLKS as a pretext for BLACK PEOPLE to be brought to greater fortune.
Throughout this campaign I assure you that they will not be able to articulate the key points of how BLACK PEOPLE NEED TO CHANGE as a necessary foundation for our community development.
Why have this "one off" dependency on WHITE FOLKS changing - beyond today's regulatory environment that prevents them from exerting systematic violence or unmitigated economic, academic and work force terror upon our people?
The answer is - the institutions within the Black community that would allow our people to channel our "development struggle" in support of our desired outcomes have been "under-developed" and corrupted by the lust for national political and ideological advantage.
We can make a solid prediction of our fate in the future when we will need to lead on this institutions in the context of a major fiscal collapse of the United States by making note of the anemic support that they provide today - during the context of an America that is functional. Even still these institutions are not able to support the present desires for absolute increase of our people.
I will do nothing to oppose this "Un-Fair Campaign".
I will not vest any of my expectations that this is a rational channel through which the Black community will receive ORGANIC COMPETENCY DEVELOPMENT.
The White Skinned Trust Fund Babies Who Still Receive Benefits Of White Privilege Despite Their Guilt
White Progressive Cheshire Foxes must be some of the most narcissistic people in the country.
The fact remains - despite the good feelings that these "Spawns Of Tim Wise" might receive none of this will have any material consequence in their lives. Again - it is only done to make them feel better about themselves.
Akin to America unilaterally disarming itself; American preemptively cutting its oil consumption in half and thus eroding itself back to a circa "1889" standard of living - these White Skinned Trust Fund Babies KNOW that none of these emoted feelings matter because the REAL WORLD stands just as it did yesterday, prior to them coming to this point of consciousness.
The Fox And The Wolf Will One Day Reunite In Their Own Lands Where They Continue Their Inter-Canine Species Fight - Will The Negro Have
Built Up The Institutional Necessary
To Survive All Alone When It Happens?
I have said previously that the demographic changes in America will indeed change the dynamics of White Privilege some time in the future.
The MATERIAL LOSS of White Privilege wills strip away all THEORY that is present within the "White Skinned Trust Fund Babies". When faced with the actual loss of this advantage - I ASSURE YOU - that many of them will not choose to live among "equals" as such.
At least some portion of them will choose to separate, restoring their exclusive province.
As some people are "offended" by this departure - the truth is that this group will have to rely upon their own ORGANIC COMPETENCIES that will allow them to survive or die as they seek to impose their own will upon the people and the new lands that they settle upon.
SO WHY ARE WE NOT TALKING ABOUT "ORGANIC COMPETENCIES" within Black people rather than "RACIAL OFFENDEDNESS FROM WHITE FOLKS do to us"?
- We have a Black President and the chorus is worried that this POWERFUL man is under "racist attack"
- We have a Black US Attorney General and yet the Embedded Confidence Men are using metaphors that the chief law enforcement officer in the land IS BEING "Stopped And Frisked"
- We have New York City with 47 out of 51 City Councilmen being favorable DEMOCRATS and yet the Jim Crow references about the police are never countermanded by the presence of a favorable legislative body that can give the police NEW POLICY PRIORITIES
- We have people who see the process of asking everyone for Photo ID as a trick to cull the "weak black water buffalo" from the herd as they cross the river and the predators go after the weak. Yet these same Civil Rights Pharisees can't bring themselves to look at the places where the "Least Of These" vote goes unmolested but the favorable elected officials can't seem to produce the desired social justice.
Take all of these points of fact and then apply them to the context of Black people BEING ALL ALONE BY OURSELVES.
Does the absence of "Guilty White People" change the outcome of our condition?
Again which is SUPERIOR? The "White Privilege" or the "Need For Organic Competencies" within the Black Community?
This type of scheme - while seemingly innocuous and good intentioned - STEALS AWAY "Black Community Conscious Attention Time" away from what we NEED to be doing to achieve more comprehensive, enduring and organic results.
Sorry White Skinned Trust Fund Babies - I'll pass on your projected guilt trip.
I would much rather see you donate masses amount of money to Morehouse Medical and Meharry Medical College so that more Black health care professionals can be created to close the health care outcomes gap.
WITHIN THE BLACK COMMUNITY
In as much as populism defines what is legitimate in "The Black Agenda" then there is no force to check the assumptions based on the results that are obtained.
