Constructive Feedback Asks "Which References To Obama & Africa Has Gotten More Of A Rise Out Of Black America? "

I am compelled to repost an article written by one of the most gifted bloggers in the art of cultural deconstruction and analysis, Constructive Feedback.  I love his writing for the very reason that most of his critics are frustrated by him -- he tells the truth about black folks -- clearly, consisely, cogently, straight with no chaser.

This morning he rhetorically asked.....

Which References To Obama & Africa Has Gotten More Of A Rise Out Of Black America? 

In making my rounds, dropping in on certain Black themed news and web sites I can't help but notice the relatively sparse coverage of the present military operations that are taking place in Libya. Many of the same people who expressed concern over "Africom" - the plan by the US Military to establish a forward base of operations upon the continent of Africa are strangely and complicitly silent on the matter of bombs being dropped on a sovereign nation (this time).
As I listened to "Fight The Power" radio today I did not hear the hypothetical which asked "What if President Bush had participated in the mass bombing of a nation in Africa? How would WE have responded?"

Instead I heard several people construct the analogy - "What if there were armed forces within America who took up arms against the US government?" With a secondary tale of a caller that saw (White) Skin Heads recently marching with assault rifles and the police did nothing to them. "WHAT IF POOKIE AND RAY RAY CHOSE TO MARCH WITH THEIR AK47s? I don't think that the police would allow Black faces to get away with this without seeing them as a threat".

I have concluded in listening to "Fight The Power" and there their general opposition to this military action in Libya that: "Fight The Power Always Positions Themselves To Be On 'The Right Side' Of Ever Struggle".

"Fight The Power" is a permanent critic of America.   They make heavy reference to slavery and Jim Crow in the spirit of "we will never forget what YOU DID TO US!!!".  Thus America is either the cause of their present condition due to RACISM or they need to continue to STRUGGLE against the forces of RACISM and OPPRESSION in America so that their "Social Justice" can finally be obtained.

When it comes to condemnation and attachment to certain political figures and forces - using "congregational complicity" they agree that yesterday's dogged promotion of a "favorable political figure" won't be held against them as they criticize him today for acting as an agent of THE SYSTEM.    They are able to reach this logical end because they articulate the character of "the system" as having a certain amount of inertia.  Thus while President Obama is PRESIDENT - the wheels of the system had been turning against Libya and other "threats" to American imperialism long before Obama set foot into the White House.

When I mention the tactic of "the inferiorization of Obama" this is a perfect example of what I speak.  While Bush is either marinated inside "The System" which they condemn - Obama is spoken of separate from "The System".   When they told us that Bush wasn't calling the shots - Cheney was - it was to "stupid-ify" Bush per their minimilization of his capacity to think up such a scheme.   When Obama is said to be doing what he is told - he remains the "intelligent strategist" - but "The System" is just too powerful for him to stand his ground against them. (emphasis added by CBW)
I see this as yet another "group rationalization" that allows them to ultimately return to their de facto position of defending Obama against their right-wing conservative enemies.  This is who they prefer to fight in pursuit of their progressive ends.   By not condemning "their guy" into an agent of capitalistic imperialism - he is a worthy figure head once this contentious issue in which he proved himself to be akin to Bush blows over - they can assume their position back to fighting against the right wing - just in time for the 2012 elections. (emphasis added by CBW)

 He continues....

In truth - my residency in metro-Atlanta causes me to see that in having a "Black face in power" simply means that we must get beyond the assumed symbolism of that point and manage this person just as you would any other person in the seat.

Obama with his military actions is merely reducing the stock of  "If Dr King Were Alive In 2012 He Would Vote To Reelect Obama Thus Keeping The Dream Alive" t-shirts that will be sold by Koreans in the urban malls come 2012. (Source)

awesome blog, goes straight to my readers list

Can you guess which Bible verses Barack Hussein Obama likes to avoid?
Proverbs 19:10 (NIV): "It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury - how much worse for a slave to rule over princes!"
Also Proverbs 30:22 (NIV) which says that the earth cannot bear up under "a servant who becomes king."
And Ecclesiastes 5:2-3 (KJV) advises: "let thy words be few...a fool's voice is known by multitude of words."
Although Obama is not descended from slaves, he may feel that he's destined to become a black-slavery avenger.
Or maybe an enslaver of all free citizens!
For some stunning info on Pres. Obama and his fellow subversives, Google "Michelle Obama's Allah-day," "Obama Supports Public Depravity," "David Letterman's Hate Etc.," "Un-Americans Fight Franklin Graham" and also "Sandra Bernhard, Larry David, Kathy Griffin, Bill Maher, Joan Rivers, Sarah Silverman." Also Google "Prof. F. N. Lee's ISLAM IN THE BIBLE [PDF]."
PS - Since Christians are commanded to ask God to send severe judgment on persons who commit and support the worst forms of evil (see I Cor. 5 and note "taken away"), Christians everywhere should constantly pray that the Lord will soon "take away" or at least overthrow all US leaders who continue to sear their conscience and arrogantly trample the God-given rights of the majority including the rights of the unborn. Do we need a second American Revolution?
PPS - For a rare look at the 181-year-old endtime belief which has long neutralized millions of American patriots by promising them an "imminent rapture" off earth - which has diverted them away from being prepared to stand against all enemies, domestic as well as foreign - Google "Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty," "Pretrib Rapture Diehards," "Edward Irving is Unnerving," "Pretrib Rapture Secrecy," and "Pretrib Rapture - Hidden Facts" - all by the author of the bestselling nonfiction book "The Rapture Plot" (the most accurate documentation on the pretrib rapture's long hidden birth in Britain in 1830 - see Armageddon Books). Also Google "Stamping Out Harold Camping."

Even Louis Farrakhan had a message to Obama: "Who the hell do you think you are?"

However, the general rule is if a black Democratic US president follows the playbook of a white Republican president, tolerate of the black president what you would never tolerate of the white president? Why? Because integrity and truth is not an issue with "black (mis)leaders."

And if Obama is embarrassing to you and you have "voter's remorse," just stay silent because you don't want to publicly admit you made a mistake.

Constructive Feedback is truth.

As for Gaddafi, I wonder about a connection between his informing the USA of terrorist activity and this push to oust him.

"Because integrity and truth is not an issue with "black (mis)leaders."

True.Scarcely found. But integrity and truth are hardly found within the Black population as a whole at least not where it involves black people. Most blacks have pledged allegiance to their blackness, not truth, not to America, not even to God as many profess. Integrity and truth has to go out the window if it somehow poses a threat to the "positive" image of blackness.

Thanks CBW - I appreciate it.
My goal is to watch the forces that seek to influence our people and then establish a framework by which we can change our condition by first reconciling our actions with our "Permanent Interests".


I am forced to disagree with you.
I purchased and listened to the 4 Box CD of the Nation Of Islam's "Savior's Day". Taped a few days prior to the US intervention in Libya.

Minster Farrakhan did what I have been calling others out for doing:


He argued that they are USING OBAMA.

He said "You can't have Obama. LEAVE OBAMA ALONE".

Do you see the problem here?
The popular statement "THEY can't accept that a BLACK MAN is President" must also be applied to those who are loathed to accept that President Obama is PRESIDENT - with EQUAL STANDING of the other 43 and as a result he must be held accountable as a FREE and EQUAL person capable of making decisions - even those that his supporters disagree with.

Farrakhan ultimately positioned the situation as absolving Obama because there are more powerful forces that are CONTROLLING him. (He was selected).

Not to always use Bush as a reference - but - there is not a chance that Farrakhan would ever say that Bush was an entity separate and distinct from the forces that he is most critical of.

We cannot allow this tactic to be used.
