These people don't like "black" anything, I doubt if they like black shoes. When they finish arming themselves to the nines and point their guns in all of our direction, what are going to do? We're all going to DIE. They call Barack Obama and Michelle all kinds of women and men, gorillas, Silverbacks; have no respect for them whatsoever. They've called us everything in the book, shot our asses down in the street, hung us up trees; yet, when they go to war with other people of color, there we...

It seems like it's 1960 again. And it's regressing fast. Cuz what we talked about back then is what we are CURRENTLY discussing today.

And the preacher said black lives don't matter, if black folks don't care about each other. We need to start caring about each other again. And he is soooooooooooooooooooooooooo right!

All of our "leaders" are either burned out, deceased or sold out, with the latter being the state of the majority.

"This is news?" _________________________________________________________________ I know that it is not "News," news, per say, but it is refreshing to know that those in the Occupy Wall Street movement (any mass movement) are connecting the right dots regarding politics and the political psychology used on the masses in this country. Everything in that article is something I (and many on this forum) have been preaching for years. So, it is more so who is connecting which dots, finally.

Well, it sounds to me like it's the author that has connected the dots ... not so much the protesters. And she hit the nail dead on the head, for sure!! The protesters got it right by picking the right target. But I doubt they knew/know why .... or what to do about it at this point. I think most importantly she pointed out that this economic decline of the poor - especially as far as the decimation of the Black condition is concerned - is the culmination of a targeted and purposeful act ...

" Also, my gripe with Melissa is the same I’d have with any black person who allows herself to be propped up by the Democrats to do their dirty work against Cornel West as he spoke on behalf of black, brown and poor people. Harris never proved that Dr. West was wrong – she only sought to discredit him and dismantle his voice. In that regard, she was no different from a slave using the master’s gun to kill the leader of the negro rebellion." I agree with this segment of Watkins' assessment.

Since when big business, big money and politics weren't in bed together? Especially in America, the Revolutionary War was over money. The Founding Fathers were the richest men in America. This is why it is important for a ethnic group to be wealthy and politically organized, you got money, you got a political vision you can buy politicians to make that vision happen for you.
