Nobody showed the hollow opportunism of Eric Holder's individual claim, and the
collective claim of the black political class to be champions of justice, equity and civil
rights more clearly than Rev. Michael Eric Dyson did on a panel discussing the
outgoing Attorney General last Friday's DemocracyNow show. Unleashing his
customary wall of words, the fast talking black preacher praised Holder as the “the
second-most-powerful black person in the history of American politics...” but claimed
that because they're black neither Holder nor the president could ever be reasonably
expected to hold the banks to account for crashing the economy. Sure, he allowed
crooks on Wall Street to get away with stripping trillions in wealth from black families
through predatory loans and illegal foreclosures and get trillions more from the Fed
itself. But those were issues “of the white left”, Dyson declared in his opening
statement less, important to black folks than police brutality, voting rights and just not
being locked up.

No ... I'm not mad at you.

You first had a little bit of the article, then you added more ... too much.

Rule #11 - Respect People's Property - Include Only a Snippet and Link

That's what happens when I see folk breaking this rule ... I edit the post ... it aint personal.

But you do seem angry at this Brother or sump'n ... he seems heavy on your mind.

Your thread mentions a black class of folk that are "powerful but powerless".

As if there is a black class of folk ... "powerful and powerful" ... and you're one of 'em.

I just don't understand why you're so mad at the Brother ... what he do to you?

:heart:

It is apparent that you do not read the articles I post, Destee.
It appears you look at the title, at best read a few sentences.

Now you wanna, what, psycho-analyze me? Really now...

Is the above not permission?
Here is what our rules require ... and have required since 2002

Alternative Number One

BEFORE adding someone else's property to this site, request their permission.

INCLUDE that written permission in your post.

Examples below:

Slave Profits and The Roots of The Wealth Gap
Open Letter To President Bush
How Hip Hop Destroyed Black Power
Biblical Timeline
Differences Between The Three Major Religions


Alternative Number Two

It is not always easy to contact the owner, and receive their permission in a timely fashion. Therefore, we have provided an alternative to the above. You can include a few sentences of the property, and add a link to where it can be read in its entirety.

Examples below:

How Affirmative Action Helped George W. Bush
Whites Swim In Racial Preference
The Michigan Case and Affirmative Action

1619+400=2019 Jamestown Virginia...end of slavery. (Yes modern miseducation and injustices count as slavery) But no proper reparations will be given since the amount of contributions beyond humanity transcends generations. Our people have history that is equal to trillions of dollars including Melanin research and its supernatural power.
