    The My Brother’s Keeper initiative, President Obama’s project for young Black males, is mainly concerned with “Black behavior, about the need to make good choices, the need of teenagers not to have children, to stay in school,” said historian and activist Paul Street, author of the new book They Rule: The 1% vs. Democracy. “I don’t see any real call for significant resources to seriously tackle” the material conditions that afflict young Blacks, said Street. Obama’s approach resembles “the longstanding conservative Black bourgeoisie’s ‘politics of respectability’ that was trotted out to great white approval by Booker T. Washington and the early Urban League” at the start of the 20th century.

    Anything that may resemble "reparations" or "ethnic favoritism" is something that Obama has often steered clear of.

    Recalling in 2007 when he was invited to "The State of the Black Union" and bypassed that because he claimed he had another engagement at a ceremony for Abraham Lincoln.

    The "Duality" of a "black person" in a "homogenized system" is a balance of determining when to express a radical view and when to express a common view.

    Even the speakers at the symposium on the State of the Black Union realized that he couldn't actually be at the event, and expect to win votes of those not sure about this "black man".

    All that said, we all might eventually conclude pResidents are pre-selected, but that is another thread topic.

    I see Obama and his role now as a similar process of making pancakes.
    You know how the first one in the pan is usually the one you really don't want?

    But the ones that follow are the ones that hit the spot.

    Respect

    You don't want to throw a good man like Booker T. Washington in the same pile as Boule men like Pres. Obama who was selected to be president to trick Blacks into further delusion about the true intentions of the United States towards them as a group. Booker T. Washington was vilified by Boule members for standing up for the common good of Blacks. You got have to understand Booker T. Washington was a builder, a teacher and a spokes person last. Unlike most of your Black leaders especially the Boule who are spokes persons first and they don't build nor teach anything other than promote assimilation.

    Like Uncle Tom was vilified so was Booker T. Washington, because he didn't support Blacks dropping everything and joining up with Whites to become elite like the Boule. W.E.B Dubious and his henchmen did a number on Booker T. Washington's character the same as they did on Marcus Garvey and helped with the assassination of Malcolm X and Dr. King who was actually one of them but he had a change of heart. Good people are being cast into negative light by people who never gave a **** about nobody and the foolish and unaware are being sucked into the hate trap.

    For instance, Booker T. Washington built Tuskegee from an old barn house, made it into a school. He taught the students how to become teachers and they went out and taught thousands of Blacks who couldn't read because of slavery laws forbid it for generations. Then Booker T. Washington built a brick furnace, he sold his gold watch to get the furnace going. This brick furnace was the central tool where Booker T. taught his students how to make bricks which was an early industry back then that was booming, everyone wanted a brick home. Booker T. Washington pushed hands on skills as opposed to higher learning which didn't do much for poor people to speak French when they never even meet a Frenchmen.

    W.E.B Dubious took advantage of Booker T. Washington, he and his Boule cronies, secretly attacked Booker T. Washington's character by calling him a sell out, a weak man, not interested in defending Blacks from lynching. This was done to usurp the leadership of the Black community so they the so-called talented tenth could exploit the people and keep check on the Black community for the white elites. Marcus Garvey inspired by Booker T. Washington, he said Booker's book, "Up From Slavery" was his bible in building his vision. W.E.B Dubious and his cronies attacked Marcus Garvey as well calling him all kinds of apes, ugly gorillas and born ignorant. They gang stalked Marcus Garvey, he didn't know they were all organized into a secret society attacking him where ever he went. The Boule helped the government gather information against Marcus Garvey that had him jailed at the federal prison in Atlanta and then deported.

    Some of you have your history wrong and are on the wrong side. Booker T. Washington was a good man and so was Uncle Tom.
