Told y’ll when I saw the first voter registration table being set up on West Florissant. Told y’all they were not our leaders, they weren’t even from the region, they were installed. Told y’all about nonprofits descending upon Ferguson to set up shop and solicit grant dollars…. about activists/protesters going along in exchange for anointment, being deemed prominent. Told y’all how Deray and Netta were used to overshadow voices like mine and Darren Seals. Told y’all to follow the money…. I can go on and on about ringing the alarm… all of which was ignored. Because mofos didn’t listen, every single one of these sellouts was allowed to rise to national prominence and is being used against the movement today by the Democratic Party, NPIC, left leaning media and special interests.
We had a chance to nip this in the bud before it got to this point and did nothing. Now they’re bigger and stronger, our fight that much more difficult. Not listening gave them a 4 year head start. They’re set while people on our side are still trying to convince themselves this isn’t happening.
