I critique black leaders (local, state & national)… I critiqued Obama. We had war declared on us, we’re under attack, out herre dying. Black leaders have enough cheerleaders, cheerleaders ain’t gonna stay in that ass. Iron sharpens iron fam. They’re not gonna magically morph into what we need them to be. They’re either build for this or they ain’t. And we need to know. This is not personal. Every disagreement ain’t beef and every difference of opinion ain’t a personal slight. Critique comes with the job.
There are entire media networks, 24 hour news channels, newspapers and websites that feature white political discourse. White people critique their leaders all the time. White leaders critique other white leaders. White media televises town halls of white constituents critiquing white leaders.
Black people are not afforded those luxuries. Black media is not afforded those luxuries. Not by the black establishment, unless you’re with the program. Dissenters are identified. To speak against the black establishment is to be ostracized or risk some type of passive aggressive, smooth fuck, retaliatory clapback. Or worse.
For hundreds of years we didn’t have a voice. Now we do, the black establishment treats us as adversaries.
