Jim Brown & The Catch-22 of Black People Fucking With Trump

“Usually dating exclusively white was, for a black person, the equivalent of multiplying a lifetime of accomplishments by zero.”

–Paul Beatty

Ya’ll know how I feel about “Black leaders.”

I’ve said it a million times.

I think the term itself is a misnomer: muhfuccas ain’t led us nowhere, and instead what the majority of these dickheads should call themselves should be “Black spokespersons“.

If we had leadership, niggas would have us at least halfway to Canada, Cuba, China, Africa, somewhere.

Shit, Moses led his people all the way to the land of milk and honey.

But I’ve digressed, I mean like, way, way, way off the course of the point I was originally trying to make.

And that’s this; the inherent flaw in the strategy of gathering all these big name Black people that President-elect Donald Trump has been able to lasso into his confederacy under the guise that he’s actually gathering “Black leaders” is that the minute any of these niggas actually joins him, whatever credibility they have or once had in the Black community is immediately shot.

This is how much Black people do not fuck with Donald Trump.

So now that Jim Brown, who’d already signed on as a Trump flag-waver, cranked it up a notch and actually took it to Rep John Lewis for sitting out the inauguration by saying that he “takes offense” to Mr. Lewis’s stance and that the stance itself was just a way to “cry the blues”.

Now understand; I’m of two minds about what is and what isn’t selling out.

One the one hand, I totally rock with Sir. Thomas More of A Man for All Seasons fame who, in the end, gave his life because he wouldn’t bow to Henry VIII’s desire to change church rules about divorce, but then too I also wonder if More wasn’t being just a little selfish or if not selfish, self-righteous?

I mean, More had children.

And more than that, he knew what kinda nut that Henry VIII was.

Along those lines, Stepin Fetchit – who I always love to reference – made millions during the depression giving white racist just the sort of cooning they were fiending for all the while penning literate and authoritative pieces for the cause of Black liberation in The Chicago Defender.

Sellouts are always tough to judge from the outside looking in.

Especially if you’re not sure what their motivation is.

Like, should your own integrity be a marketable commodity if you have a family to feed?

Even more confounding to consider: do your children benefit more from the cash that selling out brings, or the lesson that not selling out delivers?

Back during the anti-Beyonce protest, I got to talking to a couple of cats and they were so hardcore that for some reason, a question just popped into my head.

“Say,” I began, “If some racist offered you a million dollars and all you had to do when he gave it to you was just let him say to you ‘Here’s your money, nigger’ would you take it?”

They both said ‘no’.

Personally, I thought that was crazy as shit.

But who knows how this whole thing will turn out for the Blacks that support Trump?

In the end, I’m thinking that all depends on how Trump himself as President turns out.

He could just be another nearly benign idiot Republican a la George H.W. Bush.

Then again, there once existed a group called the Association of German National Jews, loosely known as “Jews for Hitler”.

And in hindsight, that was kinda a bad idea.
