☕ Morning fam,
MLK warned us about the Dem Party and white liberals. Malcolm warned us about black Democrats, black entertainers as leaders, the power of the media and allowing our enemies to teach our children. The Panthers taught us to BE the alternative and cautioned about moving, even speaking without benefit of political education… ideologies that would have put black people on the right track, ideas so simple, yet powerful they would have resulted in an exodus of the negro off the Dem plantation forever. Instead they were all assassinated, new black leadership installed ignored their teachings, doubled down on Dem Party politics and we’ve been catching hell every since.
We’re still suffering the consequences almost a century later. Black leaders, black politics as practiced, black celebrity, black orgs and the black clergy have all failed black people. And every day we continue down this course, we fail ourselves.
