Last week the world witnessed the most vulgar display of public defecation on the legacy and memory of the late great Martin Luther King, Jr. on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to celebrate 50 years of M.L.K’s famous “I Have A Dream” Speech.
Black speaker after Black speaker, from Al Sharpton to M.L.K III to Attorney General Eric Holder, all had one main theme – that American Blacks are eternal victims of American culture and society and helpless without the big hand of the government. Even though American-Blacks have a buying power of approximately $800 Billion annually, and are well represented in every political position throughout the nation, even to the seat of president of the United States. Helpless not! Leaderless and lacking REAL knowledge and information YES!
There were double and triple servings of emotionally laden stimulation referring to the supposed injustice of the Trayvon Martin Case, the absurd equating of the Gay Rights Movement with that of Black-American fight for Civil Rights and human dignity, and the recent Supreme Court ruling against the federal government bullying a select number of States in the south to atone for treacherous discrimination laws – that were imposed by the Democratic Party during the Civil Rights Era in the first place. But…Shhh!…lets not speak of that. They spoke of Black-American’s supposed lack of freedom and discrimination due to being Black. But, none of the Black speakers looked too shabby in their suits, under fed, nor restrained in their motions. And by the way… didn’t the Citizens of the United States, the majority of whom are Caucasian, vote for the election of an actual African-American to be president…TWICE? I’m just asking.
The glaring absence and omission of any real substantive discussion of issues that really plague Black-Americans, and the nation, and bar us from achieving our true potential such as: the explosion of over 70% out of wedlock childbirth and unmarried mothers, the massive number of Blacks, over 60%, particularly men, in the Correctional System, the dramatic expanding Black poverty and unemployment lines due to illegal immigration, and the psychologically crippling notion of Black entitlement speaks to evidence that there is another agenda in play. Maybe the reason for the absence of such mention of these topics is that to seriously address these issues would eventually lead to the great reduction in the need to have these speaker’s presence on such a grand stage, and their importance in so many lives. The light would instead be rightly placed on Blacks mandating that each of us do as our forefathers and foremothers did and take ownership and pride over ourselves and our lives and not reside on the plantation of mental governmental paternalism and servitude.
There was no semblance of M.L.K’s reverence of the traditional family as he once stated, “The group consisting of mother, father and child is the main educational agency of mankind.”; His acknowledgment of the correlation to real education and prosperity and high character as he stated, “It is precisely because education is the road to equality and citizenship, that it has been made more elusive for Negroes than many other rights. The walling off of Negroes from equal education is part of the historical design to submerge him in second class status. Therefore, as Negroes have struggled to be free they have had to fight for the opportunity for a decent education.”;“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically… Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”; nor about having a good work ethic as he has said once, “Whatever your life’s work is, do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better.”
No, no there was no such utterance of such positive motivation at this most momentous occasion. This and other high profile events, such as the NAACP and Urban League Conventions, clearly reveal an agenda to exclude any voice of conservatism, republicanism, or any other voice to counter the view of Black victimization and liberal dependency. There is a cosmic family feud over the soul of the Black-American within the Black-American nation. One can just look back at the most public display of the venomous contempt for any prominent Black-American who dares speak of self-sustenance or self-responsibility by the Black social progressive power structure when they unmercifully attacked Republican Presidential Candidate Herman Cain. But this dramatic conflict over the social and political path of Blacks within the Black-American nation is not new. Booker T. Washington, one of the Fathers of Civil Rights Movement, once stated,“There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
Blacks suffer due to a severe lack of truth, honesty, and knowledge from the people who we chose to look upon as leaders. Instead we get dogmatic presentations and productions from people who offer us a cruel game of deception and manipulation with the hidden hand of servitude and mental indigence for the American Black rather than freedom and prosperity for their material and political gains.
The only question is when are more of us going to wake up to the reality of another prophetic M.L.K, Jr. statement, “We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the vitriolic words and actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence of the good people.”
