What To Do In The “AfroSphere?
Field is celebrating his one year anniversary as a blogger. He mused how black conversatives have their own network thang together, but apparently, black progressives don’t. This is important.
We are the ones who will vision the future. Conservatives, by definition, are reformist, they want to preserve the system/status quo. They want their lil negro cut of the pie, even if it is arsenic for the rest of us and the Planet.
How can we use our brains and voices to create what is wholly absent: a black progressive movement?
I know I can complain and point out racism’s finer points fairly well; where is that getting us and me? Is our race in crisis or what? Has the prison-industrial complex collapsed and I missed it? The plantation in 2007 is in the prisonyard – ya’ll realize that prisons are doing more business on the inside than Eli Whitney!
Its like the prison guard in Slam: “They are wiping out our race…and you’re sitting around here playing these silly-ass games.”
The ‘AfroSphere’ (Asabagna’s invention) must become an Afro-Spear, carving a path for our people into this 21st Century
Black Progressive Blogger Organizing Conference anyone?
