MARGARET KIMBERLEY—Black Agenda Report was quite intentional in coining the term black misleadership class. The misleaders include Democratic Party politicians and allies in civil rights organizations, journalism, churches, and the foundation world. This group is entirely self-interested as they work to get funding for pet projects, well paid jobs, election to office, media attention, or all of the above. They are subservient to the Democratic Party and its donor class while giving the impression of working in the interests of black people.

SOLOMON COMMISSIONG-As someone who is NOT a “Democrat” (and certainly not a Republican), it is saddening to witness so many African Americans throwing their unconditional support behind the likes of Joe Biden, the man who was a primary author of the 1993/94 Crime Bill Act. Biden was also a strong supporter of the openly racist Strom Thurmond and is a rabid imperialist warmonger. The Democratic Party has done an excellent job of politically domesticating Black voters.

The jury in the February 11 trial of four US activists charged with disobeying police orders to relinquish their occupation of the Venezuelan embassy to supporters of self-proclaimed president Juan Guaido will not be told that the actual president is Nicolas Maduro, or that Guaido “has never served a nanosecond as president,” said defendant Kevin Zeese. “The little sliver of hope we have,” based on the judge’s ruling, “is that we can say that we believed we were in the embassy with the permission of what we thought was the elected government of Venezuela.” The defendants face a year in prison and fines of $100,000 each.

MARGARET KIMBERLEY—The 2020 election year is an opportunity for black people to realize their power. Bloomberg’s need for black support is proof that our votes will determine who gets the Democratic Party nomination. Instead of standing up, too many of us sit back and wait to see who will be designated as most electable and most likely to defeat Donald Trump. This passivity must end.

MARGARET KIMBERLEY—Even worse, a black man would be president. When Barack Obama destroyed Libya and killed its leader, the people who once spoke up in protest were suddenly silent.
Donald Trump has no such support. He is seen as an existential threat to black people and is dismissed and despised. But the damage has been done and black politics has been effectively neutered. The days of outspoken progressives in the Congressional Black Caucus are long gone and we are left with useless drivel about Trump asking permission to go to war.
