I think that I have offended some of my readers for referring to black democrats as "Plantation Negroes" and accused them of being steeped in ignorance and/or victimology (I made this word up) . Let me be clear, if that description does not apply to you then I'm not talking about you. I am talking about black people who pledge blind allegiance to a party knowing nothing about the racist history of that party and who believe that the democratic party is somehow a party that cares about the needs of black folk. So, if you are not pledging blind allegiance and you are firmly footed in the democratic party because you have made an informed decision then why, pray tell are you angry with me?
I am called a self-hating, uncle tom, uppity Negress (although I like that one and may start another blog with that title) bougie, white acting b**tch on the daily. These names roll off my back because I absolutely adore myself and my people. I just detest willful ignorance in any color. But it's just like our parents used to tell us when we were called names by our peers... "It ain't what they call you -- it's what you answer to." I must scurry along now as I need to reserve that blog. I will answer to uppity negress-- Martin Luther King was called uppity you know. Hell they call Barack and Michelle uppity so I'm in pretty good company.
P.S The Uppity Negress has been birthed. You can check her out at http://theuppitynegress.blogspot.com/
