What concerns me most going into the new year isn’t a possibly 2nd Trump admin or even a Biden/Harris administration. What concerns me most is us… us sitting back during the time of crisis waiting for somebody to come save us… then settle when no one does into being comfortable in our discomfort… Us, the lack of action after the leaked Zoom call showing Joe Biden being Joe Biden and negro leaders cowering… every single one should be primaried… Us… doing nothing after Black Lives Matter was exposed as a money grift built off the exploitation of black trauma by its chapters… the same thing Darren Seals and I exposed 5+ years ago. Our collective response in each scenario? Nothing… nothing with any repercussion. Yeah we’ll talk, hoot and hollar… showout and perform… then we move on, completely drop the ball and go missing in action. The issues we failed to take action on gets worse… those who oppress, more oppressive and those who exploit our struggle, more powerful. By not engaging corrective/preventive action we prolong our agony.
Doesn’t matter which admin we face either way we’re catching hell. A lot of y’all did exactly what Malcolm warned against, allowed the growling wolf to chase you into the jaws of the sly fox… Jim Crow Joe didn’t hesitate to let y’all know… actually he’s been upfront the whole time, it was negros…. negro leaders, negro media pundits and negro faces of the NPIC invoking fear in old and status quo negros, who did what they do… vote for their oppression, all it took was ‘Orange man bad’. The left got negros thinking this is a win…. and many of us fighting on the side of our oppressors.
And cheering their new mascots, new black faces in high places, newly assimilated or soon to be assimilated elected leaders, all of which put party first… that’s whole purpose of party, to act in the best interest of the party, not constituents… why black leaders have a loooooooong history of putting party before the interests of black people. And why participating in this process for half a century has produced no significant gains.
The solution is not voter harder. The solution is seeing ‘the vote’ for what it is, one tool, but a tool that can be leveraged to our advantage or disadvantage. We can either weaponize it against them or continue to allow it to be weaponized against us.
