-Liberals are Democrats are not choosing to make it a partisan issue. The Republicans are. It is the Republicans are the ones that adopted the Southern strategy, it is the Republicans that fully embraced white nationalism. Democrats for all their faults have been marching in a different direction for a couple of generations now.I'm glad Cube sat down with ADOS. They helped him revise parts of CWBA and brought in focus on wealth data in America. Cube is taking more of a collaborative approach seems vs Diddy tryna to create and be in control of a party. Repairing black folks from the harm done the build this nation everyone benefits from should not be a partisan political issue. It should be common sense.
America literally cannot afford systematic racism if we want to remain competitive in this new emerging digital economy. As small as the american population is compared to other countries, there is waaaaaay more than enough to go around.
Cube and others' failure to not see that, that is why they get played and their both sides hot takes fall flat. There is no deal to be made with Republicans right now, because Republicans don't need the black vote, they don't want to be held accountable to the black vote.
Cube really thinks that he can cut a deal for black empowerment with the party that openly tries to suppress the black votes, appeals to racist, pushes harmful policy that is the antithesis of what Cuba wants. In the last few years ending with Barret, the GOP has stacked the court with judges hostile to black people, judges will roll back civil rights and labor protections. But Cube still thinks Trump and the Republicans are in any way serious about helping black America? After being made a fool of the struggle Platinum plan. He and others that think like him are just a useful idiots in waiting for the GOP.
The only way for the GOP to be disciplined is if they lose continuously with this strategy they have for the next 16 plus years, and while in power the Dems pass legislation that makes their brand of politics impossible to be successful. And they can do that with pro-democracy reforms. For the black community to have real options at the polls, they must first punish the GOP for their malfeasance, help crush them, force them to reform. Hopefully, more robust reforms can be pushed through where there are even more political options beyond two.
-Economics has not properly disciplined racist for hundreds of years. I doubt this supposed "new digital economy" makes the white power structure gonna wake up and say "oh damn, we need to change our ways". White supremacy and crony capital are intertwined, they support one another, they feed one another. Plus the digital economy will not fix the structural issues facing most black Americans either.
There has always been waaaaaaaaaaayyyy more than enough to go around in America. That hasn't motivated racist, conservatives, and crony capitalist to reform.
Folk like Ice Cube will continue to get played because they a) don't understand the game b) they overestimate their bargaining power
More simply, the GOP...
Cube and them both sides brothas...
