The DAY Michael Brown as murdered I cautioned this battle would be fought with pr and propaganda in the media and on social media.
One of the first actions Ferguson took after Darren Wilson killed Mike Brown was to hire a pr firm/publicist. The mayor has a publicist. The white establishment machine controls local media, they select which black leaders are amplified and get shine. The Democratic establishment machine controls black leaders.
I put out the call to create our own counter media/pr… control our own narrative. Black leaders and movement leaders were not interested then and they’re not interested today. The white establishment media, (an extension of the establishment Democratic machine that controls our leaders), still controls our movement narrative to this day.
They collude, we react. Their anointed black face talks some black talk to us, performs a jig on whatever stage they set and smooths shit the fuck out. We cheer like we got a win even though nothing has changed, but you wouldn’t know that looking at all the celebratory photos in the media. They tell us we’re winning. The establishment gets back to biz as usual. Black people are still screwed.
