Black America and Their 'Overseers'
The following comment was posted in a recently published Hub referencing race and social pathology:
" .... 'White' America created this situation to begin with - and now - are pissed with the results!"
If white America gets credit for historically creating the situation we see in some segments of black life today, then I contend that credit for prolonging the situation currently being witnessed must go to present-day white and black liberal, elite overseers rooted in the modern day plantation of the Democratic Party. And now, this black American is pissed with the results! It is also my contention that the Civil Rights movement is effectively over, and that the Civil Rights battle has been fought and won.
Strangely enough, blacks are the only racial group in America that chronically seems to be in need of being led by 'leaders' when in reality the last thing black people need are 'leaders', i.e., poverty-pimp preachers and radical community activists, who themselves, are personally lacking in areas of moral and intellectual standards - standards desperately needed in black life today.
Blacks do not need 'leaders' of the political ilk. They do need leadership of the parental ilk, as in, stable, two-parent type families whose goal it is to protect, to nurture, to build and develop the character and conscience of their children through examples in responsible living and conduct.
The mainstream media elite, would have us believe that shady characters and politicians, from the likes of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, to the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) and the New Black Panther Party (NBPP) - the so-called Civil Rights establishment - are the 'protectors of blacks'. They are not! Last checked, the U.S. Constitution guarantees and protects our civil rights - not community-activist rabble rousers. Sadly, black people are being exploited by the media for ratings, by the community-activist rabble rousers for self-aggrandizement and their own agenda, and by the CBC for political self-preservation.
None of the above liberal, elite overseers are interested in helping blacks in any way, shape or form. In fact, to the community activist-rabble rousers and the CBC, the more black dysfunction and chaos the better - since keeping black people needy, dependent, and forever riled up, and distracted from doing the things that can actually work toward self improvement - enable "the leaders" to be in front of the camera while lining their own pockets from corporate shakedowns. The claim that because of race - as opposed to behavior - blacks cannot get adequate healthcare, education and job opportunities - while being in danger of "walking the street while black" - today in 2012 is patently false. It is therefore time for black Americans to categorically put an end to such falsehoods, right along with the insidious cancers of black bigotry, black crime, black generational dysfunction, black excuses, and ultimately, black shame.
In light of decades of damage inflicted onto just about every segment of American culture due to unchecked liberalism, bringing stability and honor into inner cities will not be easy. But stable and vibrant black communities all across America can be restored and achieved by those blacks who are motivated with dogged determination to free itself from all vestiges of this modern-day plantation. Whether or not blacks have the individual and collective will to change their social, moral and political ways is anybody's guess at this point in time.
As the saying goes, sunlight is the best disinfectant and blacks in inner cities must vigilantly shine the spotlight on community activist-rabble rousers, while shunning their hateful, useless rhetoric. By staying the course, and by purposefully passing down to their children positive values consisting of personal responsibility and accountability, academic excellence and moral standards, inner city stability and progress can be achieved, thereby exponentially yielding law-abiding, productive, successful individuals and families.
Google and read Larry Elder's Personal Pledge 32 - for behaviors that actually lead to self improvement and advancement in life - behaviors that the plantation overseers rarely address.
