“Dr. King stated in 1967 in The Black Power Defined:<br><br>The majority of Negro political leaders do not ascend to prominence on the shoulders of mass support.

The mass of Negroes nurtures a healthy suspicion toward this manufactured leader, who spends little time in persuading them that he embodies personal integrity, commitment and ability and offers few programs and less service. Tragically, he is in too many respects not a fighter for a new life but a figurehead of the old one.”<br><br>Not just Deray, the movement is infested with these negroes. A lot of them y’all cheer. <br><br>Darren Seals and I warned about Deray and his ilk as far back as 2014. Had St Louis’ black activist community listened instead of throwing our movement under the bus in order to ride his coattails into the Democratic Party and NPIC he would be a non factor today. A lot of these negroes would be nonfactors. Instead we empowered them and this is one of the ways they’re being used against us.
