Conscious Rasta Rant March 24, 2008 / 6248 – IT AIN’T ABOUT OBAMA

As we witness the myriad of details and complex intrigues that are emerging from this current political campaign for the White House, I've concluded that I need to step back from responding to the news crisis of the day. In the aftermath of the victories of a number of Democratic Party members in the 2006 congressional races with their subsequent majorities in both houses of congress, I, along with others, forecast a new era of heightened racial polarization within this country.

We predicted that emphasis on U.S. foreign policy would diminish; economic woes would continue to worsen to the point of crisis; there would be a heightened focus on domestic issues, driving by shrinking opportunities within the domestic economy; and that the Democrat-dominated government would be enacting a spectrum of social legislation that would take more and more control over our individual lives.

Amongst the most notable of these predictions was that the crises between ethnic groups within America would become more acute. Specifically I emphasized that there has been a cover strategy, going on for a half a century, to lower the fertility rate among African Americans. That this policy had been advocated in a number of position papers, books, within the eugenics movement (which had not died with the Nazis, but mere had been driven deep underground) and as a subconscious motivation for the majority of white Americans, the dominant ethnic group in the country.

I have pointed this population control imperative out in a series of research reports and books over two decades. I have cited newspaper headlines, population studies, position papers from policy institutes, books, government officials and conspiracy researchers to point out the urgency of this genocidal agenda. I have assembled and demonstrated graphs and charts showing comparative rates of fertility, abortion, teenage pregnancy, STD's, marriage and gender confusion; all to bolster my argument that Blacks are being systematically removed out of the U.S. population. I have cited the year 2065 as a point at which that which is regarded as an African American community will no longer be identifiable.

Then along comes the presidential candidacy of Barack Obama. In his campaign his handlers and himself have done the best they can to suppress any notion of the continuity and continuance of a distinct African American community. This is one of the reasons that I became hostile to The Candidate.

The fervor that arose over the association of Candidate Obama with his former Pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright has brought the national dialog once again to a fevered pitch over racial antagonism. From high-brow mainstream media pundits such as Patrick J. Buchanan and Ben Wattenberg, through numerous respected blogs, from the bitter vitriol of working class Whites on web forums and YouTube comments, to the blatant ranting of Nazi sympathizers, we can observe a consistency: Blacks, as a distinct and empowered group, are no long wanted in America.

So at this point, I see the whole Obama campaign in a new light. Now I see why the Democratic Leadership Council handpicked him in 2004 to elevate to national prominence above many others with more measurable records and equal competence. Yes, I am crying conspiracy once again.

Let me quote once again from one of my most referenced books on the status of Africans within America, An American Dilemma: The Negro Problem and Modern Democracy (1944, Gunner Myrdal):

If we forget about the means, for the moment, and consider only the quantitative goal for Negro population
policy, there is no doubt that the overwhelming majority of white Americans desire that there be as few Negroes as possible in America. If the Negroes could be eliminated from America or greatly decreased in numbers, this would meet the whites' approval—provided that it could be accomplished by means which are also approved. Correspondingly, an increase of the proportion of Negroes in the American population is commonly looked upon as undesirable. (from page 167)

It ain't about Obama; it's about The American Dilemma. It is about racial polarization and isolating Blacks within the perceptions of this country as not socialized, incompetent, uneducated, economically nonviable, overly emotional, sexually unbridled and unfit as a community to live within a so-called "civilized" society. It's about putting more black males in prison and assaulting black women and children.

So try as we may to seek justice and fairness; try all we might to convince the "majority of white Americans" of our worthiness as individuals; explain all we want about the merits of "liberation theology"; do what we may – the die has been cast. Our true challenge is survival of the fittest. Whether we choose to do this as individuals, each cutting his or her deal with the empowered majority at whatever sacrifice the majority demands, or as a group strengthening the means by which our ethnic group will be respected and feared just as are other empowered minority ethnic groups in America; or whether we choose en masse to just close our accounts with America and look for a permanent home in another geography – I am forecasting that we don't have a lot of time to make a firm commitment.

Perhaps the candidacy of Sen. Barack Obama for the U.S. presidency will have a silver lining after all.

*pressing hands against ears in an attempt to squelch the sound of millions of African Americans trampling each other to grab the baton of assimilationism, happy to know they'll no longer need Bambi, weaves, perms or Jesus and that once they've all been washed as white as snow, shiny rims just won't hold the same spellbinding attraction*

You'll have to forgive what I've been told is a cynical type of humor, but I couldn't help myself. And don't worry, I'm about to send myself to the corner for a time-out. ;-)
