    Dyson's Message to Black Youth: You Are Cowards to Be Blamed, Beaten and Jailed!

    A Black Agenda Radio commentary by BAR columnist Jared A. Ball

    “Michael Eric Dyson seems to blame Black youth for nearly everything that has gone wrong since 1965.”

    Michael Eric Dyson has recently produced two very telling video commentaries. To the extent that they may reflect any general trend they are disturbing. But that they do reflect an overall troubling trend in Black politics they are simply sad. The first of the two videos to which I refer is Dyson’s post-mid-term election call to Obama to “be more like Bush” in aggressively promoting his agenda. The other is Dyson’s full-blown attack on youth, particularly Black youth, who he seems to blame for more than just a mid-term election loss but for nearly everything that has gone wrong since 1965. In both cases, according to Dyson, the problem is courage and honor. Obama has been too soft on implementing his agenda and Black children have been absolute cowards who trample on the very civil rights history that produced them.

    The first problem with these views is that Obama is indeed acting just like Bush. Dyson’s call for him to be more like Bush is simply redundant and Dyson’s lack of clarity here is unfortunate. Understandably Dyson cannot be seen to have been wrong prior to the 2008 election when he was proudly proclaiming to be the first Black leader to support Obama and defending that decision against all reason by saying we must first get him elected and then exercise some mythical influence. And Dyson isn’t alone here. This was the liberal mainstream pre-election argument. Now that Obama’s corporatist and militarist politics have for two years been on full screen surround sound stereo the Dyson-ites have to call for more bold action as if this was all that was lacking. What the Dyson-ites miss or cannot afford to publicly acknowledge is that Obama is and has been just like Bush and regarding foreign policy more so. Obama is out Bushing Bush! If you have doubts just ask the people of Yemen who will now be dodging the same predator drone missiles Obama has been launching on the people of Pakistan since he took office. And isn’t this just sadly humorous considering Pakistan remains officially an ally of the United States, so much so that during this week’s visit to India Obama was asked why he supports what one young man said of Pakistan, a “terrorist state.”

    “Dyson and the Dyson-ites are more than encouraged to join the Black Is Back rally November 13 in Washington, D.C. where they might reconnect with the genuine traditions of liberation struggle.”

    And as if to simply further a defense of his indefensible position Dyson’s next video is actually an invective against the young, Black youth in particular, who he says lacked the boldness, the “intestinal fortitude” to stand with the president and vote this mid-term. He upholds the conservative ideology of the .......

    Michael E. Dyson is the quintessential personification of an (euro) educated fool. Remember, this is the same clown that advocated for the open use of the 'n-word,' (by everybody--meaning white folk) saying he sees nothing wrong with it.

    At the time---there were several (internet) campaigns to have him removed from Radio One as 'host' of one of their radio shows and although none were officially recognized (that I know of) publicly, still he was effectively ushered out. Mission accomplished.

    This is the same clown that advocates himself as the 'hip-hop' intellectual and yet castigates the very Black Youth that he claims to 'represent' thereby confirming his schizophrenia.

    I like Brutha Glen Ford and the BAR--however it is not for the politically timid because there YOU'LL get the real-deal-raw and true--and YOU gotta be ready for the hot-sauce outta those bottles and not milk.

    E. Dyson could never intellectually handle that degree of heat. ehh-period.

    Oh and to finally answer the original question 'Who in the world is Mike Dyson' I say emphatically------NOBODY.

    Also it would help if the black haves did more than applaud the simplistic nonsense all of these on line black media 'experts' are directing at us black have nots!

    I. e., they're kinda sorta not berating/chiding/etc. the better off blacks, for doing nothing collectively to resolve our issues/problems/etc.

    In other words: They're making excuses for the better off blacks doing nothing to 'uplift the race' (again)!

    Wasn't or isn't that obvious by now?

    It was and is to me!

    The question to be answered:

    Not why is what he's claiming/saying/etc. so wrongheaded?

    Why do we continue to buy what he's selling?!?

    I. e., it was and is seeking out those who are for us, never mind those who aren't or don't intend to be!
