Death of Black Agenda Report?
Glen Ford has a piece this week at Black Agenda Report which only reminds me why I so rarely read that site anymore.
Cornel West was wrong, Glen writes to talk about racial issues (that's what he's saying though Ford won't admit it) when he should have stuck to facts and figures on unemployment.
Anyone remember that book?
This week Glen Ford wrote, "There is no need to inject racial psychoanalysis into the public conversaton" -- bulls**t.
In 2007, BAR was happy to reprint Jason Miller's post putting Bush on the couch via the book I just noted. In fact,BAR was wild about that book.
Glen Ford and Bruce Dixon have to live with the fact that they could have told the truth about Barack prior to his Senate election and didn't. Our current problems are very much on their hand. Had they used their platform and Black Commentator (where they were then at) to tell the truth then, it would have carried weight.
Today, they still struggle.
Point of fact, Barack's half-Black.
He's not Black.
Unless you're Half-Black Agenda Report, stop f**king lying.
I know who used to argue that, who was the enforce on that talking point: Melissa Bitch Harris Lieface Lacewell Parry.
That dirty trashy bitch went around exclaiming, as a Black woman, that Barack was Black and not bi-racial.
Thing is, Lieface Bitch Melissa?
She's not Black.
Her mother's White.
A detail she tries to hide.
Being known as bi-racial would make it difficult for the bitch to trick White people into believing she spoke for Black America.
Black Agenda Report's refusal to call the bitch out goes a long way towards explaining why they are so very damn useless today.
Cornel West did a brave thing. Black Agenda Report does a cowardly thing.
It says Cornel was wrong to psychoanalyze Barack. Despite the fact that they did the same thing, BAR did, with Bush. Despite the fact that all of Margaret Kimberley's columns for 8 years were was pschoanalysis of Bush.
But now it's off-limits?
Quit being such a little bitch, Glen Ford.
Grow the hell up. In fact, take it from this Black dyke, Glen, you need to man up.
Thursday, my cousin wrote "Melissa Harris Perry denies her White Mommy" and I did not know it until late tonight but C.I. offered to work that into the snapshot but Stan asked her not to. C.I.'s point was if it was in the snapshot, people would know, "Leave Stan alone." Stan though felt the opinions would alienate some people and didn't want C.I. to deal with the fall out. For the same reason, he asked us all not to link to it.
I am Stan's older cousin. Which means I can use my years and experience to overrule my cousin.
It is past time that we stopped trying to 'expand' the Black community. One of the reasons we have to much trouble pulling together is that we are not dealing with our Black issues. Suddenly, we've got to make room for this non-Black identity issue and that one and blah blah blah.
I am all for pulling together in larger groups. But I am also aware that, as a people, the Black community still has a lot of work to do. We need to do that work and we won't as long as we can't be factual.
Melissa Harris Lacewell is two-faced lying bitch.
There's no prettying it up.
When you are working for a campaign and you go on TV and radio to talk about the elections and 'forget' to tell the audience that you're working on a campaign, forget to do disclosures, you're a lying bitch and that's all bi-racial Melissa will ever be.
It's past time we told White girl to take the dreds out and quit trying to talk like a Sista. It's past time we told her to go suck on her White Mommy's nipples if she wants, but stop pretending she's Black.
In other words: Bitch, stop fronting.
When we don't even have the guts to do that, we're pretty spineless as a community.
For years, White Americans have thought they could speak for us. We did not fight those people -- some very well meaning ones -- all these years only to surrender our group identity and voice to a girl with a White mother.
She needs to go play for her team (bi-racial) and stop trying to present as Black.
And shame on anyone who lets her get away with her lie.
That means you, Glen Ford.
Here's C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:''
