|We all niggas now!|
June 24, 2010
On a recent visit to New York, I had occasion to attend services at a predominantly black church. It boasts a very large congregation (well, it has a large congregation; they don't necessarily boast about it, but you know what I'm getting at), and I surmise that those congregants and members who are not black attend due to the overwhelmingly positive energy there. Race, as it has come to be understood in America, is simply not a significant issue.
This church and its pastor are well-known in ecumenical circles, some would even go as far as to say famous. I am preserving their anonymity here because I wouldn't want anyone there to catch flak for associating with an infamous "race traitor," the label some in the black community insist upon ascribing to me and other black conservatives.
In any case, the service was spectacular; the band and choir were magnificent. Their pastor, an extremely well-educated and spirit-filled gentleman, delivered a moving and uplifting sermon. I dare say it was inspired.
Nowhere in the sermon did I hear the phrase "social justice," however, nor witness any meanderings into the realm of black victimization or white oppressors. In fact, the only reference to race at all was an offhanded remark concerning people of color developing an increasing amount of economic power, which is certainly true.
It's quite a different tune form the message that is being delivered in churches that espouse social justice and Black Liberation Theology, which I have asserted are apostasy. Such constructs are Marxist in nature and were contrived by far left radicals to indoctrinate Christians into a subverted version of Christianity. One must consider the pre-eminence of Christians in America to understand this political imperative.
In my book, "Negrophilia: From Slave Block to Pedestal – America's Racial Obsession," I point out that the protocol executed by the left toward compromising the social and cultural viability of black Americans is identical to that which was later (and is currently being) used to transform the rest of America into a society sufficiently hedonistic, ignorant, dependent and deluded that it might be easily and effectively hoodwinked into voting away its liberties.
This has very nearly occurred. Due in part to certain sensibilities circumscribed in my book, as well as stellar marketing, propaganda and a complicit press, Americans reflexively cast votes for a dedicated communist as president of the United States. Every facet of Barack Obama's presidency – his Cabinet, proposals, policies and machinations – smack of old-school Marxist dogma combined with '60s radicalism. Every move appears to be calculated to compromise America economically, politically and socially.
This appearance is with good reason, because indeed every move is calculated to compromise America economically, politically and socially. This has resulted in a popular backlash that is being addressed by the president's supporters on many fronts as – you guessed it – racism.
As has become clear to millions of Americans, since the end of the Civil Rights Movement, issues of racial tension and cultural balkanization have never been about Americans being incapable of peacefully coexisting. They have been about weakening our perception of ourselves as Americans, thus resulting in squabbling amongst ourselves, rather than addressing our common enemy (the political left) and being ripe for the aforementioned hoodwinking.
This emerging clarity, if you will, has led to more Americans becoming engaged with each passing week, because they can now see that the crises held before them have been nothing but smoke. Race is not an issue for most Americans, and they've learned that it really isn't much of an issue to the political left either, despite the inordinate emphasis placed on it for the last several decades.
For all practical purposes, our neighbors have realized that in our leaders' eyes, "we all niggas now!"
