33. BJ, you don't even have to be all that to see right through these people

Once you accept that alot of these people telling black folks what is or should be important to us and screaming because BLM dared to demand answers from Sanders live lives every bit as insular, narrow and devoid of minority presences as anybody on the right, everything else just falls into place.

I'm from Georgia. I have seen people like this every day of my life. Including the latching on to the black folks that will happily confirm their already held biases. There ain't nothing new about any of them, though they love to pretend otherwise.

The thing is, it THRILLS me to see a diversity of black thought and opinion. I am THRILLED that Sanders has black supporters although looking at many of his white supporters, I completely understand why so many have kept that so quiet. But the thing that pisses me off to no end is that if a black person here or "out there" says something that's in line with the DU Glitterati here, they can't run to rec that shit fast enough. Even if it's not born out in polls. Even if it's the complete antithesis of everything we see in black media. They will accept THAT as the truth, but not the 6,924 other articles and perspectives from other black people that say the complete opposite.

This is why I have no interest in white person after white person after white person in GD posting some article from some black Kos diarist, some brown kid on Youtube or some black "thinker." Because this same crowd would scream to the hills or ignore it completely if someone posted something from OTHER black people that said the opposite. There is no interest in what we think. The interest only lies in how happy we are to be USED by people that couldn't give the first shit about us and make that clear every minute of every day.
