Why Hillary Clinton Deserves The Black Vote

She humbled herself, giving up White Privilege-to not only win-but succeed once in office by continuing Obama’s policies.

“Fifty percent of Whites will vote for the Republican and fifty percent for the Democrat… while Blacks decide who wins” ~Malcolm X

While the above quote is a paraphrase of the iconic Black activists plea to get Blacks to take our vote more seriously-its a refrain that can be echoed today as we seek to determine the course of a Nation dumbfounded by the success of its first African-American(yes he’s Black, sorry there’s no such thing as biracial), President.

Author Michelle Alexander published a piece in the Nation Magazine detailing why she feels Hillary Clinton should not get the Black vote. I beg to differ and write this article to address the points Alexander raised-in making my argument that Hillary has earned our vote and will be the 45th President of the United States baring an unspeakable tragedy.

Democratic politicians making black people feel liked and taken seriously. Doing something concrete to improve the conditions under which most black people live is generally not required. ” ~Michelle Alexander

While I can’t argue-prior to Obama’s election-the above was not true, I will argue that it worked because for as lame as Democratic outreach to Black voters was, it was ten times better than Republican outreach-which was a [big fat]middle finger. As Blacks we don’t want any group to take our votes for granted, but giving our vote to Republicans as reward for hating our guts is much worse.

“…Bill Clinton seemed to get us. When Toni Morrison dubbed him our first black president, we nodded our heads. We had our boy in the White House. Or at least we thought we did.” ~Michelle Alexander

I disagree both with Mrs Alexander & Morrison. The idea that Blacks can only accept Bill Clinton if we think he’s Black is insulting if not asinine. For as much as Black women would want and expect Black men to hate White people for four-hundred and fifty years of Slavery, Racism, Discrimination & Oppression based on our race, we don’t.

If we want to accept and embrace Whites who show a sincere interest in our race and culture it doesn’t mean we think Eminem is Black. Clinton acknowledged aspects of our Culture-including some that would lead to his impeachment-that the brothers admired and we need not apologize or be insulted for that.

Would now be a good time to bring up the fact that what Bill Clinton did had nothing to do with Hillary? Sure she was his wife and yes she was White and I’ll even grant she thinks-as all Whites do-that Blacks are degenerate, inferior and nobody Black will ever be President-if they do somehow luck up and get elected they won’t succeed.

Should Hillary lie to Blacks to get our vote?

Alexander goes on to mention Bill Clinton’s Three Strikes legislation and disproportionate sentencing for Black offenders as opposed to Whites committing the same offense. I concede that these policies were supported in speeches by Hillary, who I truly believe supported them wholeheartedly.

That said, Hillary would pay for her beliefs in 2008 when she put them to the test in her battle with then Senator Barack Obama. To argue that she’s the same person who thinks Whites superior and Black men “Super Predators” after being soundly defeated by Obama is to be dishonest.

Hillary was asked by Chris Hayes of MSNBC why she didn’t handle the email server thing better-she knew she was running for President? When she answered, “No, I hadn’t decided whether or not I was running for President”  You could see the smirk on Hayes’ face.

Hayes assumes Hillary knew she was running and is once again being less than honest. A charge, which is at the heart of the fake scandals the White-98% Conservative owned media-is saying is her number one flaw.

I look at it another way. If in fact Hillary believed in the myth of White supremacy and that nobody Black could beat her and become President.  Would she be able to maintain that belief if she wanted to run again-after the Black President who beat her, becomes the most successful in U.S. History?

So yes no question, Hillary contemplated running for President but she’d have to abandon the White supremacist beliefs that cost her in 08′, beliefs that her entire life to this point had been based on.  Giving up White Privilege is not a decision anyone White- especially democratic royalty gives up lightly.

“This time she’s facing a democratic socialist who promises a political revolution that will bring universal healthcare, a living wage, an end to rampant Wall Street greed, and the dismantling of the vast prison state—many of the same goals that Martin Luther King Jr. championed at the end of his life. Even so, black folks are sticking with the Clinton brand.”

This is a meme being played out in our media and it speaks to how insulting White people can be. Just as our embrace of Bill Clinton wasn’t because we thought he was Black, its because he reached out to Blacks when very few Whites and no White Republicans have or do.

That Bernie Sanders is playing on the same myth of White Supremacy that Hillary had to abandon to gain the support of President Obama, is not the same thing as President Obama beating Hillary because she thought she could win simply by being White.

“Yes, but James Earl Ray marched with Dr. King too it doesn’t mean you get to trick Blacks into making you President” ~RB

Just as Black voters found in 2008 that Hillary was lying so too will Black voters find out about Bernie. In his victory speech after his win in New Hampshire he said some amazing things like;

“We have to get big money out of elections…now if you’ll excuse me-I have to raise another $100 million dollars.” ~Bernie Sanders

Or this one: “I’m going to Tax the top 1%, but yes your taxes will go up too” ~Bernie Sanders

The CBO scored Single Payer health care when they scored the Affordable Care Act. Obama submitted Hillary’s, Hillarycare proposal for comparison. The plan-which is being championed by Sanders-has been scored to cost $2 Trillion Dollars in Tax Payer funds(CBO) Bernie’s response? “You’ll save thousands...”

You heard that right, you pay; TWO TRILLION but you save “thousands” sounds like a great plan(not really).

Yes again that’s Bernie’s plan but the Republicans are even worse. Ted Cruz won the Iowa Caucus, in his victory speech said; “Obamacare actually hurts people on the bottom[by encouraging them to get into the middle class].” ~Ted Cruz

“The issue is; should we demand Hillary lie to us to prove to us that she deserves our vote? I say no. I say if she lies she’ll lose again.” ~RB

Alexander spends the rest of her article chronicling how Bill Clinton’s, Whites are Superior Blacks are degenerate & inferior policies hurt Black people-as an argument for why we should accept Bernie lying to us-because he thinks Blacks are inferior Whites are Superior.

I reject the notion that because Hillary is convinced her policies of the past were wrong that she’s less qualified than Bernie-who doesn’t realize his policies have been tried by the first failed 43 White presidents and certainly wouldn’t work in the age of Obama.

Hillary doesn’t have to tell us she knows her husbands policies were wrong, only that she will follow Obama’s policies which corrected those-not only of her husband-but of the Republican presidents trying to take their Country back[to 1850].

Finally, I said in 2008 that Obama would make it look so easy-every White son of a Bush would think they can be President. I also said they don’t realize Obama won because he had a; 1)Better Argument. Wasn’t a, 2) racist or supremacist and he wasn’t a 3)Liar.

We can have a debate as to why someone traumatized by Obama in defeat would be more apt to follow his lead than someone who thinks he’s “corrupt” because certainly he couldn’t have won if he wasn’t.

Sanders rails on the Donor Class and how these banks and Wall Street firms control our elections implying Obama’s on the take and so is Hillary. The facts tell a different story.

In 2008 Obama got twenty percent of his campaign contributions from Banks and Wall Street firms.  As President getting 5.7 Trillion Dollars in principle, interest, fines, fees & penalties. Including but not limited to: $16.65 Billion, Bank of America(bought Country Wide) $13 Billion, J.P. Morgan, $25 Billion, Wells Fargo($300 million to Black homeowners in a settlement with the bank and Obama basher Tavis Smiley). Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, USB, HSBC all were fined(Wall Street Journal).

The argument that taking money from banks and Wall Street resulting in sweet heart deals and no jail time-especially when only $7 Billion was recovered from Bernie Maddoff is a very weak argument.

Alexander concludes her argument suggesting she knows how it all turns out, the superior Whites win and Blacks lose. That we need a revolution such like the one Bernie Sanders offers. I totally disagree.

Shame on us to cynically look at Barack Obama’s rise to power as diminished because no blood was shed to enact the change of power(though the four-thousand Blacks Bush left to drown during Hurricane Katrina played a major part). Does a revolution not count if thousands of people don’t die for the cause?

If the losers of the debate concede they aren’t superior and accept following the policies of the victor is the only path to success does that mean we’ve failed?

The winner of the 2016 election will have the same qualities as Obama with the exception of his race and gender. By understanding the only path to victory-and success once in office-Hillary has proven she not only deserves our vote-she does our vote proud.

Those are my thoughts as usual I invite yours.

Michael Eric Dyson Is Wrong

RB ON MIC VII snapshot

LISTEN NOW! RB RadioNework Live Stream 

-Opinion    Tue February 8, 2016

by Theron K. Cal  Managing Editor, RBR Network

I’m not so naive as to not realize Whites can’t stand President Obama because he’s successful, brash and Black. I also realize every White person on this planet and ninety percent of African-Americans believe Whites to be superior.

The notion that racists won’t eventually destroy Obama like they did Dr. King, Malcolm X, JFK and anyone else stood in the way of the lie-that the dumbest race on earth is somehow superior is too hard to resist.

So when I learned Georgetown Professor and MSNBC Commentator, Michael Eric Dyson had a new book out touting how Obama let everyone down by not letting racists destroy him, I not only rolled my eyes I also decided to take him on as I have so many times with Black Idiots who insist on pushing this narrative of White Supremacy.

The name of the book is: “The Black Presidency: Barack Obama and the Politics of Race in America.”

The premise is simple, Black Idiots who only supported Obama because they were certain racists would destroy him leading to riots and protests, proving Whites are superior and Blacks can only pray, didn’t come to fruition and for that Obama let us all down.

In an interview for the book on the website Radio Times Dyson laid out his case;

Not to suggest there’s not a lot of love or to belittle the ridiculous obstructionism from the far right wing. His inability to move anything through Congress but yes, I’d say there was[on race issues] a racial procrastination that’s sad and disappointing”  ~M.E. Dyson

This is when Professor Dyson’s argument begins to teeter. How much more obstructionism did the inept racist Republican Congress offer that wasn’t deflected during the two years after then Senator Obama first announced he was running for President?

To argue the spit balls from the very Idiots he destroyed in the general election were any less debilitating once he became President, is presumptuous at best and absurd at the very least.

Not lost on me is that Dyson-or any other Obama hater-can’t cite one shred of legislation that the President couldn’t get through Congress unless it was a Bill to send everyone Black back to Africa which he didn’t want to get passed in the first place.

 

Dyson & Obama
Dyson: Obama could have done more to help racists destroy him.

The truth is; Blacks like Dyson who believe Whites are superior assume Obama would stomp his feet and pound his fist on the table furious, that superior Whites won’t let him have his way. The thought Obama would simply let racists think they were getting eighty-percent of what they wanted when Obama was getting everything he wanted is lost on these Black fools.

An example? Obama’s first budget in 2010(Bush signed the 2009 Budget in October of 2008). An early proposal had twenty-eight billion dollars in spending cuts over racist nut Bush’s 09′ budget(one-third deficit spending). Racists balked at the cuts-thinking this was too easy-asking the President to make it thirty Billion.

“How bout Thirty-Two Billion In Cuts Fella’s?” ~Barack Obama

Obama added not only will I offer you two billion dollars more in cuts than you asked for, if you pass this budget I’ll turn around and give you the first budget with the $28 Billion in cuts for you to vote down. You can go on Fox and brag about how you voted down my budget.

Oh, you’re still not convinced Professor Dyson? When Libyan leader  Muammar Qaddafi  said, he’d begin slaughtering his own citizens if they didn’t stop protesting that America had elected a Black Genius why couldn’t they?

It was to be an assassination, even though it was labeled a police action that wouldn’t’ need the approval of Congress.  This kind of posturing is acceptable when acts of war are being requested of Congress as to not tip off potential targets.

Complicating matters in Libya was the fact that Congress wasn’t in session-giving racist Republicans the excuse they needed to claim the President hadn’t mentioned a thing to them about taking out Qaddafi and was again acting alone, leading from behind and a Muslim sympathizer who was weak on National Security.

The real story is, Obama had made a deal with each and every member of Congress that if they signed the resolution to attack Libya he wouldn’t say a word when they went on Fox and blasted him for “Not contacting me, acting alone, and being no better than George W. Bush”.

This has been the case since 2009 when Obama wrote off Congress when Ted Kennedy died and racist nut Scott Brown won his seat.

“Obama spoke on race but only to chide Blacks in public never to attack racist Whites killing people because he was Black” ~M.E. Dyson

Understandable that the ninety-percent of Black Idiots who think Whites superior will think the President will get into pissing matches with dumb racists over them being racist. Yet I know that a real brother would never debate racists as to whether or not their hate is justified or waste time asking them to stop hating Blacks.

A racists argument is; “Its OK to hate you because you’re Black and Blacks are degenerate and inferior and nobody Black will ever be President and if someone lucks up and becomes President he’ll fail.” ~Racist Nut

Is that an argument the most successful President in U.S. history-who just happens to be Black-has to make verbally or by his actions? And yes, to the extent that Blacks are perceived by Whites as supporting Obama simply because he’s Black a lil’ bit a Black chiding helps to sell the notion of racial neutrality that’s needed to accomplish the goal.

“[Obama] shed tears for the victims of Newtown…but not one tear for Blacks in Chicago or the people of Flint who he could have visited but didn’t” ~M.E. Dyson

That’s silly, while the people in Newtown were murdered in protest of Obama’s election, the Black on Black uptick in crime in 2012 was directly tied to the fake Fox News Polls that had Romney ahead in the Polls over Obama.

Nobody reported it but Black on Black crime in Chicago was down 80% since Obama’s election. Murders going from 532 to 106 the year of Obama’s historic election. Its ironic since 2012 we haven’t gotten a yearly report from Chicago because Black on Black crime went back down 80% soon as we all found out Fox was lying and Obama was re-elected.

There will be no shedding of tears for Black on Black violent crime going down 80% that would be ridiculous.

“Obama pushed through a Gay & Lesbian agenda but didn’t push through $40 Billion Dollars in Pell Grants or $300 Billion in middle class Tax Cuts or $80 Billion in mortgage relief & $300 million from Wells Fargo for Black victims hurt during the mortgage scandal. Nor did Obama sign the ACA into Law giving Blacks a 50 to 70% discount on their Health Insurance and up to $2 million in catastrophic care coverage”  ~M.E. Dyson 

Actually, Obama did all those things and a whole lot more. The day I criticize this President for walking the walk but not talking it to Fox News is the day I support that Idiot Bernie Sanders. No, just do it(don’t trip Nike its not that serious) and let the history books talk about it.

A final word on the LGBT claim. Obama accepted $2 million dollars in donations from LGBT groups it was less than 2% of the over all monies he raised. Would he really alienate his base for such a small constituency?

Water+crisis+in+Flint

FLINT: Don’t Drink The Water

Flint was/is tragic but the President knew, how did he know? Because he knew what he was really doing and how much he was really frustrating racists who couldn’t lay a glove on him. It was only a matter of time that Democratic States and cities run by Blacks would come under fire.

We saw that when racists prosecuted Mayor Ray Naggin of New Orleans when they targeted Kawme Kirkpatrick in Detroit. Not to suggest there was no wrong doing but yes, they couldn’t get Obama so they went after local & State Govts. run by Blacks.

If the choice is between poor Black cities, States and letting these Idiots take over our Federal Government that’s a no brainer. I’m sure Obama has a plan for helping these local municipalities but we have to take care or our Democracy first.

“No question,[Obama] sees himself as biracial, he’s proud of that but that brings about problems because he’s not subjected to the same racist brutality and Congressmen yelling out “You Lie!” and people putting ape heads on his body or making him out to be the anti-Christ or all other manner of people climbing over the gates of the White House or shooting into the Oval Office…” ~M.E. Dyson

Of course all those things have happened so what in the hell is Dyson talking about? First of all the 2001 Genome Project Study was clear that the RACE of a human child is that of its biological father.

While there is definitely mixed heritage and culture, a human child is but one RACE and one GENDER as determined by its biological father(2001 Genome Project Study). So Obama’s Black and embracing his Black is what he attributes his success too.

I swear I could go on & on all day every day but the flaw in Dyson’s argument is the belief held by ninety-percent of Black Idiots that Whites are superior and as such they are going to destroy Obama its only a matter of time-so let’s lie and say he’s done nothing for Blacks and is insensitive to racism so we can feel better about Selling Out & joining the KLAN.

I’d love to debate the Professor on my show or on one of his. We fool ourselves thinking these lies about how inept Obama was and how he couldn’t do anything because Whites are so superior could become his legacy. If you or I don’t call these Black Idiots out trying to sell these corny ass books who will?

And on that note what racist is gonna buy a negative book about Obama from a so called Black Liberal? What Black person-96% voted for Obama-would buy it? I understand you want to sell your book but making arguments that weak do nothing but sell yourself and America’s greatest President short.

Those are my thoughts, as usual I invite yours.
