Comments: NAA(L)CP attacks Project 21 and other black conservatives

I like the "ultraconservative" part. Reminds me of my grandma.

You'd think these people would come up with something original to say about black conservatives. I blogged about this whole "in it for the money" thing just last month. Who do I have to talk to to get my check?

Kweisi seems queasy about becoming irrelevant. It's going to get uglier, I'd take odds on it. It's what happens when one finds out they are truly not needed.

Look, we're messing with Kweisi's money. Once the race hustle is over, what's he going to do for a living? Get a real job? Doing what? He's fighting for his livelihood. Let's just say we're mouthpieces for the Repubs. What does Kweisi have to say about our ideas?

Before Almasi, the person who headed the group was named Rodick Conrad, if I remember correctly.

One email exchange we had concerned who was funding Black groups. The funding of the NAACP came up. I noted that the group, for years, was headed by white people. That's who primarily funds the group if you take into account institutions and place a race on the funding institutions.

But when you consider many Black organizations like the NAACP or Project 21, you'll find the funding isn't from majority Black sources.

When Glenn Loury gave an interview that detailed is movement from the left to the right, and then from the right, it became clear that he lost status and funding when he "left the left" and when he "left the right."

Is the charge legit in general? I can see arguments either way. At this point, I don't care.

Call it bad timing. He coulda run for Baltimore mayorship back in '99, but turned it down--sumfin about "fire in da belly". At least as a politician, he would have the incumbent's edge to go with the flow and "convert" if need be.

Yeah, if he gets caught holding the bag when the race hustle is over, it's back to being plain ole PeeWee Frizzell and nary a perk nor perp.

As for ideas, thy don't have any. Whatever ideas they had were sucked up by the Dems, and spat out like stale chewing terbacky juice
