Will Blacks in New York boycott?

The late Dr. William A. Jones would often say, "If you eat the king's meat, you must do the king's bidding." This means that any Black leader who is calling the shots for Blacks while collecting funds from whites is a Judas goat. A Judas goat always acts in the best interest of white supremacists. The current theatrics against the New York Post looks like a rerun of Don Imus, the Jena Six, Sean Bell and Amadou Diallo. Blacks have constantly knocked on the wrong door, talked to the wrong people and asked the wrong questions. In each instance, Blacks flunked physical education. On the other hand, there were no mental exercises.

A boycott of white businesses, including the New York Post, in New York City is off the table. Judas goats arrived at the crime scene first and started directing traffic. This is the modus operandi and it is all cameras. "The early bird gets the worm." Newspapers have advertisers. These advertisers also donate to the coffers of Black organizations and to the wallets of Black leaders. Advertising is essential for store and newspaper sales. Monies that Black leaders receive from white advertisers are not gifts. There is a quid pro quo.

There is also a conflict of interest. It is unethical and criminal for Black leaders to represent Blacks while taking money from white businesses. Because it is in the interest of whites to finance Black leaders, there is no criminal nor ethical violations for this kind of blatant double-dealing. Thus, it is permissible for Black preachers to enjoy public funds despite the constitutional wall between church and state. The purpose of the faith-based initiative (FBI) is to discourage ministers from allowing churches to be used as places of public assemblies for civil rights activities.

Once upon a time, dynamite served this purpose. See, for example, the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala., on Sept.15,1963.A spate of church bombings was reignited in the 1990s. Law enforcement agencies and the criminal justice system are continuing to terrorize Blacks. If we had respect for our revered ancestors, "our" leaders today would be modeled after them. Those leaders included Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Gabrielle Prosser, Denmark Vesey, Nat Turner and David Walker. This was before the Emancipation Proclamation.

Our revered ancestors would frighten us today. Few streets are named after them. Whites refused to fund their liberation activities. They would make mincemeat out of current leadership. There is a historical disconnect. This spells doom and gloom for the Black masses. The defamatory cartoon that appeared in the New York Post on February 17 constitutes a "fire drill." White racists employ these Pavlovian experiments to ascertain if our leaders can keep us in check. New York City is a social laboratory. We have allowed whites to reduce us to laboratory dogs, monkeys and rats. Social control is the object and a policy of containment is in effect.

Otherwise, Blacks are a threat to national security. A citywide boycott and a "badge of slavery" lawsuit are vital tools to combat our containment. There are also no licensed lawyers involved in planning and directing the protest against the New York Post. Compare, for example, Michael Stewart, Howard Beach, Yusuf Hawkins and Tawana Brawley, among others, before 1991. This was an era that produced results. There was a blueprint. Blacks were not simply pacified.
