If I may offer some clarity about Black Americans today supporting the Democratic platform. It is true Black Americans once supported the Republican Party. The two political parties began to flip-flop membership in 1964. Our freed forefathers and mothers who remained (99%) in America naturally joined the Republican Party after the Emancipation Proclamation because of the so-call American Emancipator, Abe Lincoln was a Republican.
The Democratic Party for the most part was Southern / Confederate ideology base. Up to when Democrat Lyndon Johnson signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Voting Blacks jump the ship of the Republican party to the Democratic Party during this period in American politics. Likewise with Whites leaving their Democratic Party joining the Republican. A Democrat today is not a Democrat 150 years ago.
I contend it would have been better for all Emancipated slaves be repatriated back to our homelands in Africa. Sadly, that is the apex of the dilemma Black Americans will always face being descendants of freed slaves, “here by choice” dealing with knowingly or unknowingly. And if anyone researched fully what Abe Lincoln fully desired for x slaves one would realize it included full repatriation of our freed forefathers and mothers.
President Lincoln full emancipation plan was not the desires of the US Congress, backed by the Elite’s which many members retained new and improved Confederate ideologies. Regarding using Black men and women perpetually as newly adopted lower class citizens, to continue building Southern States and Industrial Northern States.
Thereby, paying low wage earnings for “Black Servitude” to benefit White America.Black Americans have yet to realize American politricks two-party system..
When we do, if we do, we will begin the task to create a Black Political Party that represents real group thinking for the advancement of Black Americans in all of America’s social institutions.
The after effects of electing America’s first Black President has created a vacuüm in the American society. Tail Spinning American politics between its divided lines not seen in 150 years.
The true problem with 21st Century Black Americans is we are divided as a group / race within our group. We are socially mechanized under the controlled majority white group / race here in America. So much so to our own demise we are unable to seize this shifting moment in American politics and its society looking for “real change.” Yet the society over-all does not have the will to correct its inherited race problems from the 19th and 20th Centuries.
Black Americans; For the sake of our future posterity here in the American society must desist at once all our group divisions. Come together regardless of all White American social ideologies (New and Old) we have learned and adapted. Use those ideologies to create and advance the new structure “Change” stalled here in the infancy of the 21st Century.
We must break the alliance with all past social experiments that have failed the past 60 years to make sure for our posterity, all American citizens, and people of the World an end to the brutal past centuries still plaguing humanity today.
BLACK MAN AND WOMAN WAKE UP!
For one moment let’s break Paul Ryan statement down to its roots. Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan stated… “We have got this tailspin of culture, in our inner cities in particular…” Obviously this is a broad statement considering the fact there are 19,355 cities in the US, but it leaves room for denial on his part if called to the carpet to answer if he is race baiting with his Tea Party white constituent political base.
Paul Ryan offered clarification to this statement by including specifically “men.” Continue…”of men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value of the culture of work.”
Paul Ryan clarifies cities with the term “inner cities” which refers to the central section of a city where mostly ” Poor and middle-class Black Americans live.” Inner City is code term for America’s white racist. Believing that Black people only live there, destroying the landscape and real estate once occupied by their white grandfathers and mothers. Paul
Paul Ryan stated specifically… “in our inner cities.”
Paul Ryan himself was raise in a small white suburban town called Janesville, WI. But, Ryan believes like other (tens of millions) arrogant white people that they are rightful owners to all the land of these United States.
He did not specify which cities in particular are a “tailspin of culture.” Are we to think and believe that P.R., believes only Black men live in inner cities? Did anyone ask that specific question? Although white men living in inner cities are more than likely employed than Black men.
How do we know for a certainty he was specifically referring to Black men exclusively?
Because obviously White men and Black men cultures are different as the two shades black and white.
HE WAS NOT REFERRING TO WHITE CULTURE.
NOR DOES HE COMPREHEND THE IMPACT OF TRUE BLACK CULTURE, NOT WHAT HE READS ABOUT OR HEAR ABOUT IN MAINSTREAM MEDIA OUTLETS.
Paul Ryan fully understands U.S. cities culture and race demographics. Ryan majored in economics and political science or “Political Snake Charming,” at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
Paul Ryan race baiting statement ends in part suggesting or warning to his white constituents… “There is a real culture problem here that has to be dealt with.”
What does he mean by “deal with…?”
Other than increasing the present and past Black male hyper-incarceration rates, illicit drugs dealings, gangs and gun violence across America. I can not imagine a worse groups social-culture condition(s), except Jewish people sufferings during Nazi Germany attempted genocide of them. Or may be Paul Ryan is signaling a return to American good old Institution of Slavery.
What do you think Black America?
Sounds to me like James Brown Hit song, “The Big Payback” lyrical lines sung in Paul Ryan voice… “I going to deal with you. I want revenge, my patience thin. I want revenge.”
Finally, Black People need to “Wake Up, Unify and Do For Self. Just as White People have done and continue to here in America the past 400 years!
Political analysis Chris Matthews prediction “Republican will win the Senate.” Can be liken to Mark Twain book “The Tale of Two Cities,” central theme. I have come to realize Democrats and Republicans are liken to a two-edged sword of destruction. Both sides have no clue how to go about repairing Government and making it truly representative for “We The People,” or its long-held “assumption” meaning the “Common People” of these United States.
The Milwaukee Machine led by Tom Barrett and his Citizen Elected Crony Leadership and Private Business Cronies, could not sway The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to overlook Federal policies and rules this time around.
I wonder why this particular incident raised eyebrows in Washington D.C.? Is Washington D.C. wakening up to Milwaukee City Govt misuse of Federal Grants? Hopefully so!
Specifically, Federal grants intended on alleviating impoverished conditions in Milwaukee. A City Audit would / will revealed millions and millions of grant dollars never making it to poor communities in Milwaukee. It also would have shown most of the Federal grant dollars targeted to poor communities go to surrounding communities, private business residing outside the City awarded contracts (City Procurements) by Milwaukee City Hall Community Development Commission. These outside contractors employees are primarily white and do not live in the City of Milwaukee.
City of Milwaukee Federal grant dollars received over the decades have benefited Wisconsin Whites citizens greatly more than it has benefited Wisconsin Black citizens. Someone proves me wrong! Only an audit of City and County books can dispel this belief which publicly presented by the Local Chapter of The NAACP. Though these charges have floated in the Black community by concerned citizens for many years with no redress when presented to elected public officials.
Obvious proof of the misuse of Federal Grant Fundings, by Elected City Leadership is mounting researched data and reports outlining the ill social living conditions of the Black residents living in the City of Milwaukee. Plus often Nationally and Abroad reports and studies. Findings outlining Milwaukee, WI. ill rankings in social living indicators, e.g. Crime rates, Black male incarceration and unemployment rates, Education, Infant Deaths when compared to other Cities demographics in the Nation.
No comparison needed in my opinion. The proof is in the pudding.
If there is no truth in this cartoon. Mayor Tom Barrett and County Executive Chris Abele why not agree to open the books to an outside audit? Your window of deniability might be closely approaching.
Obviously, what’s telling about this demographic map is the Black community is color green. But what matters in our society than where or what community American citizens resided is the flow of Economics-v-Poverty. The color green represents the demographics of Milwaukee Black Community. Dollar bill green in fact!
Suppose we viewed and used this map to track Black dollars which this society fears Unity of Black dollars ever connecting on behalf of advancement of our group first.
It would most definitely show Black dollars flowing out and into the surrounding blue colored white communities. Dollars leaving Black communities is responsible for and comparable to the level of poverty experienced in Milwaukee Black Communities and other “same” communities in these United States of America.
Milwaukee and surrounding cities are prime examples; That Black people disunity is a “primary” cause of the level of poverty experienced by their / our group when compared to White and Brown Communities in the City of Milwaukee and Milwaukee County. Sadly, conscience and cultural aware Black people must admit, as often stated in our circles; “We Are Our Own Worst Enemy.”
