They use BLM/M4BL to solicit millions in donations and grants, to spread interesectionality and to rally you from the frontlines of our struggle to fight on behalf of others…
They use carefully selected leaders to engage in symbolic action, march you in circles, rally your vote, give you hope through their personal come ups and to keep you from exploring alternatives.
They use black faces in high places who they fund/control, who have no independent power to make you feel you have a dog in the race.
They use nonprofits as a means to coopt, overshadow and deflect from real grassroots efforts.
They use ‘change’ candidates to march you back into the voting booth and ultimately to cast votes for the Democratic Party. This is why Bernie ran as a Democrat instead of independent and ultimately caved.
They use ‘prominent’ Ferguson protesters for cred, to sell it… grant hustle on behalf of nonprofits, spread false narratives in interviews and the paid speaker circuit…. as tokens others can aspire to be and/or live vicariously though
All traps… designed to stifle progress and decrease morale our elders warned us about over 50 years ago. But gassed up mofos looking for a come up and trying to be somebody thought they knew better… And as a result, marched us into every single one of them. We’re worse off today than we were 4 years ago… Now in addition to fighting the opposition and black misleadership, we have to fight agents/operatives/puppets being used against us within.
