Individualism is beautiful to behold!
It's exciting times for Black individualists leaning right of center. Overshadowed by a Black president's economic indifference, those with a strong sense of self have much to debate and are much debated.
I'm a life long individualist. My view of American Black identity is we need to delete the group identity captivity and segregation imposed.
There's room within our culture for various kinds of " Blackness " ( or American-ness while Black if you will ).
We all don't have to be ' Al Sharpton" or " Clarence Thomas ' in order to be legitimate. There's great danger in swallowing legitimacy down loaded from Black Faces In High Places.
Subscribing to distant demagogues definition of acceptable " Blackness " gives them too much power. My read of our ( and over all American ) history is the individual must be free to the fullest moral and legal extent.
As a Republican while Black, former GOP chairman Michael Steele was my party leader- not my personal leader. At no time did he imitate big name community liberals who rule Black folks by Divine (? ) Right.
Black individualism in the Obama Era means more than internet Ghettocrat attacks, though that's the sad low standard Black Left shock troops choose. They seem more political Bloods and Crips than partisans.
I can't help but suspect distant Black Faces In High Places applaud behind closed doors. They hate making a scene. They leave that for the " little Negroes " to do.
It's high time we choose to be ourselves, as individuals and new groups of individuals, forever separated from the group identity forced upon diverse ancestors.
They couldn't be free be themselves,
We have no excuse not to!
That's my lesson of Black individualism in the Obama era- to be myself and fight anyone of any persuasion who violates that sacred selection.
*NOTE: Every so often if you tweet out this hash tag, BlkI out there to sow you support individualism for American Blacks too!
