This new round of black activism wasn’t started by negro leaders, the black clergy, the Democratic Party or nonprofits. It was started by the streets, the result of a series of uprisings that shook this nation to it’s core and threatened to bring Amerikkka to her knees.
Then came the negro guard dispersed by the white Democratic establishment machine in black face, their job? To take what was black & strong, diminish the blackness to make it weak… Malcolm described this decades ago,
“It’s just like when you’ve got some coffee that’s too black, which means it’s too strong. What do you do? You integrate it with cream, you make it weak. But if you pour too much cream in it, you won’t even know you ever had coffee. It used to be hot, it becomes cool. It used to be strong, it becomes weak. It used to wake you up, now it puts you to sleep.”
What Malcolm warned us against is being sold to us today as diversity, intersectionality and standing in solidarity… the commonality? They don’t strengthen, they dilute blackness.
