know a detached, elitist robber baron when I see one
and Mitt Romney is certainly one.
The lynch-mob that is the New, yet very ol’ Republican
TEA Party, led by an assortment of fruits n’ nuts
- Rush Limbaugh, Karl “Turd Blossom” Rove, the Koch
Brothers and their flunky Congressman, Darrell Issa,
amongst many - are mounting-up. Their collective aim?
To run this President down, stab him, repeatedly,
in the back and then string-him-up, and if they can’t
get to him, they’ll take any of his boys.
And my choice of boys is deliberate, for it’s precisely
how the “Right” sees the Black men occupying positions
of power in this administration, such as this nation’s
Attorney General, Eric Holder, while it illustrates
the 1957 retro-tone the ever-proud “Rednecks” have
Holder’s been placed in their pirate gun cross hairs for
numerous reasons, but here are two prime factors:
he won’t imprison the new Black Panthers who, dig
this, “terrorized” voters in Philly in the mid-term
‘10 elections, and he will confront and combat the
GOP organized attempt across the nation to suppress/repress
the votes of Americans of Color.
Have no question about it, racial hatred is what fuels the
blue flame under their asses to “get the Nigger.”
He has too much power for a Black man.
Romney and George Zimmerman have the same goal - to
protect good, decent White folks from the evil, dangerous
Wait, hang on, let’s not get caught up in semantics; please,
please, please let’s not pretend these cutthroated
Conservative (sexist, racist and elitist) characters
we’re witnessing insult, belittle and demean this
president, and his wife, are above racial slurs. No,
what we have here are angry White folks who, behind
country club and VFW doors, employ throw-around good
ol’ genuine, authentic “All-American” terms-of-endearment
like Spic, Chink, Gook and the good lord knows ...
No? Who begs to differ?
I was watching “The Help” with my much better half and I
admit, I was, what do you say, taken aback
by the mere thought that one of the Southern Bells
pondered why the Black Maid/Mammy who tended to, or
rather loved, nourished, nurtured trained, read
n’ raised her child couldn't, catch this, “take
her business outside,” as if she were a barnyard animal.
Ain’t that a bitch?!
Forgive me for being so very cynical but I just don’t believe
that racist based arrogance , that White
supremacy/Black inferiority complex has vanished
within White American culture. I’d wager anyone, if
Obama does have the election stolen from him ... that
Mitt Romney will have the whole White House refurbished,
if not sanitized and sterilized, after Black people,
the very folks his Mormon religion once openly believed
to have tails under their pants, have left the building.
They’ll burn the sheets, replace the toilets and tubs, furniture
and dinnerware ... recall that White America segregated
its cemeteries at one time ... if that doesn't reflect
an embedded, widespread cultural mental illness, what
does? Apparently, according to Ron n’ Rand Paul’s
grassroots popularity, its being repressed but yearns
to express itself again.
Are you oblivious to the White Backlash sweeping America?
Sorry, I can’t buy the insidious ideas that Mainstream USA,
for centuries, maintained about Blacks - our lack
of humanness - have faded away and given way to some
new 21st century era of enlightenment. Despite the
weak effort to craft a “Great Society,” I just don’t
see that “legislated morality” has swept the nation
since the turbulent 1960s. There were lynch mobs in
the 1940s and there’re lynch mobs in 2012.
Black America is not as delusional nor as disconnected
as we certainly appear to be.
Between listening to and monitoring the enemy, the unbalanced
and clearly unfair FOX News Network and the AM Hate
Radio industry - the latter in which I worked for
nearly a decade - I can only come to the logical conclusion
that “conservative” politicians, pundits, businessmen,
billionaires and citizens are one-in-the-same ...
John Birchers, Birthers, TEA Baggers, little more
than reinvented White Citizen Council members,
one trip to Wal-Mart away from buying a white
sheet and cuttin’ eye slits in it, runnin’ over to
Home Depot for some slats of wood and kerosene.
Can you say lynch mob?
Hopefully, Black America is not as delusional nor as disconnected
as we certainly appear to be. Perhaps we can ascertain
“why” Eric Holder has been targeted; maybe we can
take that fact out of the politica micro-picture that
it is, and apply it in broader terms, paint with a
big-ass brush, if you will, and realize that all Black
folks are targets - from motorist to shoppers to students
to prominent athletes and entertainers - there’s a
bullseye on our backs.
Afro-American Alpha males and females are on a hit list.
Let’s talk square business: Mitt Romney and George Zimmerman
have the same goal - to protect good, decent White
folks from the evil, dangerous Negroes like Barack
Obama, Eric Holder and Treyvon Martin. White America
can buy into both.
Peep this: I grew up in LA, Land of the body bag ... Wanna’
die? Wear the wrong color rag, the 213, luckily
my folks whisked me off before I began high school
at Crenshaw High, to Denver Colorado, Aurora
actually, a snow White suburb of lily White Denver,
where I stayed, toured the state college system, raised
a family, and still hike, bike, ski and swim, remaining
here well into my present mid-life crises stage.
This is all said to illustrate I’ve accumulated a blending
of common sense, street sense, and formal schooling,
resulting in my having a super-keen internal barometer
that can detect a full-of-you-know-what slickster/hustler
at 20 yards. Thus, I know a detached, elitist robber
baron when I see one and Mitt Romney is certainly
I’ve walked amongst those who may not actually be the enemy,
and note I say may not, but who are certainly
the oppressive opposition. I’ve broken-bread
and chewed-the-fat with angry White guys at all social
levels - White Trash to Aristocrats, I well understand
White folks; I was that lone Blackface, the only
one in the classroom/car/mall/party/game - you
One has to learn “good White folks” from typical, average,
everyday White folks.
just don’t believe that racist based arrogance
, that White supremacy/Black inferiority complex
has vanished within White American culture.
I can decipher through all the little “white lies” to detect
the true “reasoning” of the Angry White person viewpoint
because I’ve lived amongst them for a time, learned
their different ways, their individual/collective,
am I to say “uniquely pompous and grandiose perspectives”
on society and life, i.e., their crap doesn't stink;
they are “better” then any other peoples of the planet;
they put on their pants differently then the rest
of humanity - elements Romney embodies and personifies.
See, I’m proficient in analyzing Redneck customs and ways.
Speaking in general terms ... “The Right,” which is vastly
comprised of White folks, and constitutes roughly
half the nation’s voting population - simply doesn’t
like Black folks, as well as most other people of
color. To deny the current high level of resentment
and animosity held towards this President and the
chocolate-chunk of Americans who put him in the White
House, i.e., Americans of Color, is to reject the
obvious as well as the story of a defiant America
that had to be dragged, kickin’ n’ screamin,’ to the
table of inclusion and equality.
If the Republicans nominate Humpty Dumpty, Paul Bunyan, the
Abominable Snowman, or Mitt - as long as he ain’t
Black or Democrat - he’ll garner millions upon millions
Nevertheless, most Blacks naively can’t measure the contempt,
scorn and disdain those on the political “Right,”
who call themselves everything from TEA Party members
to Klansmen to Republicans, have for Blacks. I’d argue
most Blacks believe White America to be merely indifferent
towards them, concluding we’re but a BET reality
sideshow attraction, when in all actuality, millions
of “real Americans” harbor an alarming amount of hostility
and ill-will towards Black folks.
We’ve both stolen and contaminated their country’s culture,
have them tell it.
So when I say to you, as Black folks, amongst us are so many
who simply don’t grasp how much Barack Obama, Eric
Holder, the handful of other Blacks the President’s
placed in decision-making positions of power piss
off White people, and specifically White men, to the
point of forming lynch mobs, I sincerely believe just
Political assassination is but the first option; there are
And least I omit: the anger Republicans have for Obama is
amplified because of, and this is critical all the
Niggerluvers in this administration - the Liberal/Progressive
White folks he’s brought aboard his team. Amongst
the anger that you feel emoting from (Representative
Darrell) Issa, thru your TV screen, is stocked higher
n’ higher because of the betrayal factor; the
Representative sees any white person who is a Democrat
as either soft, weak, childlike or spoiled, but nonetheless
an “enabler,” who helped bring about these “dark days”
Understand how angry White folks/the GOP Base see it. The
only reason they must contend with Obama is because
of White guilt, on which the “Left” has a monopoly,
and if it weren't for FDR’s New Deal, LBJ’s
war on poverty, the alleged support JFK and RFK
had for MLK and his Dream, we’d all still be
unable to vote and the token racial integration and
the resulting mild diversity we've achieved would
remain a suburban dweller’s nightmare - instead of
the present-day American reality.
Please note; “The Right” strongly believes they have it all
has too much power for a Black man.
Holder sits in this black-hearted Black President’s Black
House at this President’s black roundtable,
one of his black Knights/thugs, and there exist
between them some initiate Black bond. There
is a, on the behalf of White folks, a hunch, a belief
even, which maintains Holder and Obama have an unspoken
Black brotherhood bond: Obama will shield Holder
so that the Attorney General can fight TEA Party efforts
to turn around Black n’ Brown voters. As well as Holder
won’t prosecute the Black Panthers because he and
Obama are raising a Black Army for the impending race
wars, for which White folks are apparently buying
up all the guns n’ ammo Sam Walton can stock.
Today, the lynch mob comes for the President and the AG;
tomorrow they come for the Congresswoman and big city
mayor; the next day the uppity fireman, councilman
or college professor; and next week they come for
