President Obama, I'll bet there are many days you say to yourself, "What the fuck was I thinking?") I say it for you; it's OK. What you have surpasses intestinal fortitude. May God continue to bless you and your family, Bo and Sunny.
Homeboy Byron's mother, above, played a big part in his life. She probably still is. I, personally, don't care. Congratulations on your mansion, your white wife, your mixed race daughter. You're included in a cast of millions. It's called living in America. When you're dead, it all stays right here.
I agree with you my sista that when you're dead, it all stays right here....left for your family to fight over. That's why I said those other characteristics are more important cuz you CAN take those with you and ensure that the others you left behind will have something to follow. All this is important because those are components that made us free as people. No other enslaved people has ever been able to do what we have done in less than 500 years. There are STILL slaves in South Asia and the Middle East who do not have a voice. And that is why to me? President Obama run in office was so vital and imperative to our struggle in this country.
Even if my president didn't do EVERYTHING black naysayers criticized him for not doing, clearly they are NOT in his shoes with massa breathing down their neck...plus he has a family to protect while in office. Something MANY BLACK MEN don't know what that feels like to protect their family. If they did? Our children's future wouldn't be going down the toilet. The few black men who understands what black manhood is? Is not enough to fight this ongoing war against us. And because so many black men have succumb to the imagery of the white man's success...once again black women and children are thrown under the bus.
Now Byron's mother may be there for him and have raised him to maturity but that's what black women do. They do not abandon their children... And history of drugs shows us that massa realized that and allowed drugs to be pumped in our community specifically targeted to BLACK WOMEN to prevent the building of great black men...like my president. But! Oh oh where were these other black men? A few of em are/were doing the best they can/could while some of 'em were/are in gang life, some in prison and the rest of em have their heads sooooooooooo deep in massa's whore it muddled their vision for the black cause..and all they see is the mirage of MONEY and POWER. Hey the Black panthers did the same thang, US organization did the same thang and few of the so-called revolutionary leaders did the same thang having WHITE WHORES by the side....Patty Hearst was one of em. And what happened to these so called revolutionary geniuses? Well we all know what happened to them....right?
My point? Ain't listening to Allen or any other coon like him. His behavior tells HUGELY what's on his mind and it matters cuz black people DIED to ensure freedom....and was ensuring freedom for ALL Black slaves and their descendants..not an elite few. And as Harriet Tubman did her thang freeing as many slaves as she could? We never heard about a Harry Tubman. When Sojourna Truth did her thang speaking on behalf of all black slaves, we didn't hear about a Solomon Truth doing the same nor did we hear about a Phillip Wheatley.. yea there was Frederick Douglas but massa only let him on stage because HIS SKIN WAS A LITTLE LIGHT and he spoke so-called proper English. To me black men like Allen, Cosby, Daniels, Lee, are doing nothing more than a minstrel dance.
And because massa let em have one of their whores[except for Daniels] they really think they can RULE the world without the rest of us in it. And this is the biggest JOKE...cuz they are deliberately leaving the most important person out: THE BLACK WOMAN! So my sensibilities as a woman and half of the black culture are totally INSULTED. I mean Allen and others can do what the hell they want but there is this BIG WALL they have to jump over that's keeping them from getting to it. And the sooner they realize that and get off this soap box to proceed to fighting this REAL war against us, the better chances they will have getting over that wall...cuz they won't be able to do it alone. If so, they would have succeeded long time ago. And that's WHY it is extremely monumental to continue modeling the image of UNITY. Now! They can be hard headed if they want to...but! The reality is: They ain't running nothing but their mouths with empty WORDS while the rest of us continue to DIE every. day! When will they ever learn? Probably. NEVER. But! BTW: One mo thang...those n$ggers don't deserve to get in until they recognize that WE as black people are ALL in this TOGETHER.
