Where is the mass Black Conservative faction that protested ALONG WITH BLACKS but held up signs that were PRO-WOOLWORTHS?
It's funny how Black Conservatives seem to be your whipping boys for all that is wrong with Black America.
I went to hear Michael Eric Dyson at a local event. He gave his cursory damnation of Clarence and Condi.
He said nothing about Sharpe James of Newark and the leaders of Camden, Detroit, Gary, Baltimore, Benton Harbor or East St. Louis. These Black leaders seem to get a pass because they are successfully able to blame outside forces for the failure of their cities despite their being in the leadership and despite the fact that Black Democrats hold most of the seats of power including - mayor, city council, police chief, fire chief, librarian and PTA head.
At some basic point when folks are unable to hold their own accountable they in fact decide that they have no control of their situation. It is the outside forces that are the problem. Why then do you need to talk to these people. One only needs to talk to those who hold the real power.
