can black america have a decent conversation?

clutch | While perusing several of the hundreds of Django Unchained conversations happening on social media, I began to get this nagging feeling that just wouldn’t go away. It had nothing to do with the hatred hurled at Spike Lee or the brittle enthusiasm over Quentin Tarantino. It didn’t have anything to do with the film’s slant towards colorism and depiction of the White-Savior Complex as heroism — or even why the Tupac song at the end stopped right when I was getting into it.

All of that faded in light of the revelation that we — as in black descendants of slaves in America — converse as if we hate each other.

*And please skip the “Who is we?” question. If it’s not for you, the browse button is that way.*
Sambo, coon, nigger, nigga, and Uncle Tom have all been spoken with such a deep-seated hatred and resentment that I have literally recoiled from my screen at times — in disbelief, in dismay, in sadness. And it’s not just Django; any conversation that involves race spirals out of control so swiftly it’s as combustible as a lit match on gasoline. I asked myself, “Why are we using plantation language to insult one another?” “Why are all these black people fighting over a white man’s rendition of slavery, or a black woman sleeping with a white man (see: Scandal); or the infallibility (or cultural mirage) of a black president?” And the answer is simple:

Because some of us are still slaves.

Oh, the shackles aren’t there — for those of us not in the Prison Industrial Complex — but the damage has been done. And we are still divided into a contemporary version of what Ancestor Malcolm called House Negroes and Field Negroes.

but wait..., I just thought she was calling out folks like the BR regular crew who NEVER enjoin meaningful discussion and ONLY comment online to feed their addictive glee at playing the dozens across putatively legitimate lines, i.e., partisan political differences, rather than the school playgound lines which actively prevail in the minds of the participants.

You just "doubled down" on your argument without addressing MY challenge.

In the world of cyber security - where you have two attack vectors.

ONE has access to the "Ring 0" of the CPU as he is ON THE INSIDE.

The other is seeking to do THE SAME DAMAGE but he ONLY has access to erase the contents your USB thumb drive because it is a peripheral - exposed to his outside position .

I DO NOT preach the "Lesser Of Two Evils" B.S.

I PREACH the need for INSTITUTIONAL INTEGRITY - Counter Checks, Intervals were you must produce, TRANSPARENCY, and PROPER SCALE/SCOPE of focus.

The worse thing that has ever happened to the "Free Negro" is that he has ATTACHED HIS LOYALTIES upon AMERICAN POLITICS and thus POLITICAL PARTIES.

You seem to be troubled that I focus on the INSIDE RATE INFESTATION while not sufficiently prioritizing the "Conservative Roaches". Clearly you have not seen my comments on the Black Republicans who are no different than their politically conscious adversaries.

CNu said...

Your compsec analogy is more than a little flawed..., there are always myriad attack vectors available to a determined antagonist. By far the most damage can be accomplished by a trusted insider with administrative access to everything. The reason that the black community is in such dire straights today is because its competent and high-integrity male managerial and professional class outliers left the ghetto in pursuit of greener american pastures. You and I are representatives of that exodus Feed. Those who couldn't leave under their own power have devolved into a dysfunctional matriarchy interacting in highly dysfunctional ways with outsider matriarchal public education institutions (87% female teacher/administrator demography) an indifferent, incompetent, and lazy police apparatus which prefers the low-hanging fruit criminals spawned in the ghetto matriarchies. and outright predatory, criminal scumbags with privileged insider administrative access - the very first time I met this muhuggah - he made my skin crawl.
