☕ Morning fam,
A lot is happening above the surface… and even more beneath the surface. If I post about those things here I would be called a conspiracy theorist, right winger or worse, de-platformed. A new world order is being carved as we speak and nobody is looking out for our interests, least of all black leaders who instead are leading the charge with white feminists on abortion and for white men co-opting womanhood on trans rights when we (black people) have more pressing issues.
There are shifts in power and new strategic alliances happening in and outside this country. Imagine 1776 when this country was founded, no, we’re not there, but this is as close as its gets for black people. Today we have a say… today we are no longer considered property or 3/5ths a human being. Today we get to move in our own interests, not Massa’s. Today we are not bound, not even politically to the plantation. Today we are no longer limited to narratives and propaganda pushed on state run corporate media for news and analysis, we have our own.
The Dem Party is on life support after suffering injuries from a series of self inflicted wounds. They’re fuckeed in the gamee. For a looooong time. Don’t be fooled by last minute scurrying, symbolic action or rushed bills not worth the paper they’re written on. Any social bill passed, even with the ‘support’ of Republicans will be challenged all the way up to the Supreme Court to be decided by the same conservative court that overturned Roe. Dems ain’t talking about that tho.
Instead they’re banking on the very behavior that got them into this mess, to get them out: fearmongering and bs legislation that can be easily rescinded, using social issues to fill their coffers while doing the bidding of their corporate masters. Won’t work. Not at the national level. Not at the state level or locally.
Republicans are doing the opposite, they’re following Trump’s lead wooing black voters with tangibles. And its working.
No, this isn’t a cape for the right wing… the “party” mentality is fading and people are starting to vote issues. And right now Republicans are speaking to the issues people care about. Make no mistake, they are no better than Dems, we know this, we know to be skeptical and we pressure/protest them in ways we don’t Dems or our own.
One party rule is destroying America, same way one party rule destroyed the black family and black community… because we didn’t listen to Malcolm and be a political football moving in our own interests. Negro leaders chose sides, the side of the party of slavery and Jim Crow… well look around, this is the result.
