Whitelining: Or How To Limit the Impact of Black Voters

Bernie Sanders has a problem in the Democratic primary: Black voters. Often these days one will see his most avid supporters crowing about how he is 'up to thirty percent' with minority voters. I want to ask, "what about black voters and may I see the polls and breakdowns?"

Now, these numbers do not bode well for the Bernie campaign in the South, where in some locales, black voters make up a large share of the Democratic primary electorate; it is obvious to all and Sundry that Bernie will get SWEPT.
His solution? To Whiteline black voters into electoral obsolescence by inundating the Democratic primary with racist and bigoted Trump voters; the same folks who think nothing of their peers kicking and beating Black men at rallies, while Trump chants approvingly. That is his game plan.

Why would Bernie Sanders, the 'SOCIALIST CIVIL RIGHTS LEGEND WHO EATS SOUL FOOD WITH KILLER MIKE AND MARCHED WITH MLK’, sell black voters out and attempt to marginalize them and dilute their power in the Democratic primary? Because he is losing. Some call it opportunism. I call it politics.

Bernie Sanders talks a good game. We know that from when he railed against MASS INCARCERATION, then promptly voted for it and sold us out. The way he acts anti war but funds every war and loves himself some defunct military jets.

Whitelining: The process by which politicians, corporate entities, or other groups representing the oligarchy attempt to dilute the electoral or other civil power that groups of minorities possess by flooding the arena with racist white votes. This both minimizes the impact of their collective votes and floods the 'safe zones' with racists and bigots, thereby causing untold fear and frustration to blacks. Whitelining is often attempted when blacks do not follow the dictates of the Whiteliners.

Since you loved our 2014 list of 14 women of color who rocked, we thought it was only right in 2015 to present 15 incredible activists, organizers, artists, writers, builders and entertainers who made major moves in 2015. Check out our list—which is in no particular order and in no way exhaustive. And feel free to add more WOC who rocked in 2015 in the comments!

1. Misty Copeland

Misty Copeland brought even non-ballet lovers' attention to the world of dance in 2015 when she was promoted to principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre. Copeland is the first African-American woman to take the starring position. She also made her Broadway debut in "On the Town," and a documentary about her groundbreaking career, "A Ballerina's Tale," dropped this year. Clearly Copeland had a banner 2015.

2. Bree Newsome

Artist and activist Bree Newsome scaling a flag pole at the South Carolina state house and taking down the Confederate flag was definitely one of the most triumphant moments of the year. Newsome garnered nationwide media attention and the stubborn state removed the racist flag just two weeks after her heroic action. South Carolina's retreat was part of a wave of states and businesses finally backing away from the racist flag in the aftermath of Dylann Roof's White supremacist massacre at Charleston's Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal church,

Bernie Sanders, Invoking MLK, and Erasure

http://www.dailykos.com/stories/2015/12/5/1457343/-Bernie-Sanders-Invoking-MLK-and-Erasure?_=2015-12-05T20:32:19-08:00


BernieSanders

This is a Black Revolutionary

Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders has a habit of invoking MLK in his speeches as he attempts to bring his economic message to Americans. Time and time again we hear him tell of Dr. King’s fight for the economic security of the Men and Women that he gave his life fighting for. It’s a wonderful thing to spread that message and fight the good fight against Economic Inequality. But there is something missing from the discussion. Black People.

Let’s dig into an example, shall we? Here goes


“This he did much more than just fight segregation and racism,” Sanders told more than 5,000 supporters at the Fox Theatre in downtown Atlanta.

Sanders continued with a lengthy history lesson seemingly aimed at both the black voters he must win over to catch Hillary Rodham Clinton and the younger, white voters who dominated the raucous Fox assembly.

www.usnews.com/...

” Just fight racism and segregation?” Oh really? Eh, no big deal, right? To the Senator, it seems as if the fight for black liberation was just a blip on the radar; the real fight was not JUST fighting racism and segregation, but fighting the oligarchy. The nameless faceless cabal of evil that is keeping everybody down. He fails to even realize that White Supremacy is OUR oligarchy, and the fight is far far from over.

Now, do I think he does not know this? Of course not. To be inclusive to his audience and to adhere to his rigid ideology, Sanders must sanitize Dr. King from a black revolutionary, to a racial appeaser and find a way to give himself and his mostly white audience/fanbase ownership of Dr. King’s legacy.

He does it again for us here when discussing the Sanitation Strikers:

Sometimes people forget he was assassinated because he stood up with sanitation workers fighting for decent wages and decent working conditions,” Sanders said, referring to King being shot in 1968 in Memphis, where he went to support striking workers.

Sanders added that King was, at the time of his death, planning another march for the poor. “It was a march not just of African-Americans, but of Latinos, of whites, of all people in this country to march on Washington to demand fundamental changes in our national priorities,” said Sanders, who calls on the campaign trail for a “political revolution” in the U.S.

www.cortezjournal.com/...

Notice anything? Those sanitation workers were not just people fighting for fair wages and working conditions. Those strikers were BLACK MEN, fighting for the same wages and working conditions as WHITE MEN. Through Erasure, he completely leaves out very important Basic historical facts in order to appeal to his base. And it is completely unnecessary and just plain wrong to do. If one is planning on invoking the legacy of a Black Revolutionary from OUR battle for liberation in America, one needs to not erase their very blackness in order to promote their ideology. In my opinion, it is things like this that preclude him from being the candidate of Black Americans as well as of his White Male dominated base. In order to appeal to them, certain things must be sanitized from history.

I will clse with a link to the actual history of the Memphis Sanitation Workers Strike and you can read the history of those courageous black men for yourself. They said: “I AM A MAN.” http://americanradioworks.publicradio.org/features/king/c1.html



Hillary is Unelectable

Until she returns each and every W stolen from keyboards as the Clinton's left the Whitehouse in 2001.

The Republican voters have lost all their damn minds.

The are going to nominate Trump. It scares my kids but I believe they will implode. Once we have a nominee we will win the Whitehouse and Senate.
