These are the words I received in a post from a Black Democrat.
“I sometimes get the feeling that blacks who subscribe to the conservative agenda do so out of a sort of self-hate. Not that they actually hate themselves, but they dislike being including with a group of people who are treated the way black people in the USA are treated, and it is easier and sometimes even lucrative to voice opposition to people who look like you and I. Maybe self-dislike is a better word than self-hate. ”
Historically, movement for equality among Blacks has come about as a result of Blacks who didn’t ‘tow the line’ and accept the status quo.
The great abolitionist Harriet Tubman said, “I freed a lot of slaves. I could have freed a lot more if they had known they were slaves”.
Another great abolitionist and former slave Frederick Douglass said,
“Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them.”
Black Democrats have chosen to remain with a regime that placed them where they are from the beginning. It is the regime that placed them in a place of subservience, dependency, and indignity. What they did through slavery and Jim Crow has continued through to modern day and remains a place of subservience, dependency and indignity.
Today, Black Democrats continue to beg for the crumbs from the master’s table; continue to except what the masters tell them is injustice and wrong — and still they march. Slaves who fail to recognize that they are still slaves.
I am absolutely sure that Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass argued with those who looked like them. ‘Come, let us go to freedom. Come!’ I am equally sure they didn’t argue with them because they hated being associated with slaves like them.
Black Democrats continue to beg and plead with the regime — ‘stop killing us’, ‘give us $15/per hour’, ‘redirect the wealth’, ‘house us’, ‘feed us’… subservience, dependency, indignity.
And look at how white Liberals/Democrats/Progressives howl to keep you there! They crawl with you into your hole of misery and neither you or they have the where-with-all to get out.
Black Conservatives are telling you that THIS ain’t good enough. THIS is crumbs from the masters’ table. THIS doesn’t move you out or up – it keeps you IN!
Black Conservatives are telling you to stop listening to their lies that tell you that you cannot be a man who is able to feed his own family, stay married and be sexually moral, pursue his own education, build his own business and housing, and keep his own neighborhood free from crime.
Black conservatives are not telling you to forget that you are black, but rather reject those who would tell you your skin color is a hindrance to overcome.
I, as a Black conservative am not telling you this because I think I’m better than you – I’m telling you this because I know you’re better than what the white/liberal/progressives think and say you are.
Unless the crumbs you are begging for come from the true Master’s table, you will always be hungry — always!
