Current liberal black leaders have accomplished nothing of value. They are like parasites, living off the legacy of Dr. King. In contrast, the black and white freedom fighters of the civil-rights era were men and women of character.
Jesse Jackson and other liberal black leaders never encourage black Americans to do better. They're motivated by greed for power and money, which can only be fed if blacks stay dependent – i.e., stay Democrats. Why else turn Rosa Parks' funeral into a political opportunity instead of a celebration of courage?
Good question. I have posted before about the lack of positive direction from the self proclaimed Black leaders of this country. They have laid the blame for the “black condition” at the feet of conservative Republicans. They refuse to tell black people that they are ultimately responsible for their own condition. And don’t let a black person try to tell black parents that they are falling down when it comes to raising their children to overcome poverty. They will suffer the “Cosby Treatment”. Every liberal black leader will attack them and “debunk” their claims. Even successful conservative blacks find it difficult to lead by example. Anytime they call for black people to better themselves through hard work and education like they themselves did, they find their very “blackness” questioned.
This is not surprising. Liberal black leaders want America to be a Socialist nanny state. Rev. Peterson explains why:
The modern civil-rights leaders are, one might say, the illegitimate children of W.E.B. DuBois. DuBois was a founding member of the NAACP, and notorious for his publicized attempts to discredit the late great Booker T. Washington.
Washington called on blacks to focus on hard work, character and increasing economic power, knowing that political power and civil rights would naturally follow.
DuBois believed in the higher education of a "Talented Tenth" of black Americans – a group of elites to guide black America into "higher" civilization. DuBois himself was an elite socialist who believed in racial and political agitation to achieve his ends.
Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Louis Farakan must see themselves as part of the “Talented Tenth”. Anyone who tells the other 90% of blacks that they are doing themselves a disservice by not trying to better themselves suddenly becomes the enemy. That person threatens the DuBois social order that liberal black leaders have worked so hard to set up. It is not about the betterment of black people as a whole, it is about being part of a liberal elite class who tells the other blacks what to do and how to live. Rev. Peterson concludes:
Of course, without political and racial chaos, there would also be no need for partisan, racist organizations like the NAACP. And that is why black conservatives are attacked to this day, while hateful, racial agitators are glorified.
The legacy and name of Rosa Parks will continue to be used to advance the aims of the corrupt liberal elite, specifically in the lead-up to the 2006 elections. Shame on them and their pretense of love for Rosa and for America.
And we see it already in the senate race of Michael Steele. Liberal blacks failed to condemn racist attacks on Steele and at the same time black Democrats say racial attacks are fair game because “Party trumps race”.
