This Poat is Racist

The racisim, it’s everywhere. In Detroit, yesterday:

For many in attendance, the state’s threat to appoint an emergency manager stirs bitter memories of unfair wages and forced segregation.

“This is white-on-black crime,” community activist Minister Malik Shabazz said during public comment. “This is white supremacy. Before you can take over our city, we will burn it.”

Malik Shabazz said that the EM is tantamount to slavery.

So, to help Malik understand the various ways the appointment of an Emergency Manager is -actually- different from slavery, I’ve offer the following:

1) No chains, you can just move. Really. I mean, if you can sell your house. Home owners hit hardest with this one.
2) Your “master” is, most likely, going to be some black dudes. But, House Ni**er and all that, so maybe this is a wash?
3) There is a simple solution – refuse the money and let the city go bankrupt. STAND STRONG!!!!
4) I don’t remember the slaves demanding to be bailed out by their masters?
5) But then again there is probably a lot of slave literature that I skimmed.

More Malik:

We understand we have financial difficulties,” Shabazz said. “Give us the help we want, need and deserve, not the help you want to impose on us. We don’t want an emergency manager or a consent decree. This is white supremacy, and we will fight you.

Detroit deserves help? And, from it’s position of power [cough cough] they have nerve to dictate the terms of that help?

I got a great idea. REFUSE that money. FIGHT THE POWER.

rowd members chanted, “No justice, no peace,” and, “No takeover,” and sang the civil rights anthem “We Shall Overcome.”

  1. “Before you can take over our city, we will burn it.”

    So you’ll be practicing your own brand of “urban renewal” then? Good to know.

    This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to make the point as dramatically as possible. I hope your governor has the stones to say “Fine. You’ll get what you deserve, which is not a penny more from the taxpayers everywhere else in the state. Enjoy your chaos and bankruptcy.”

    Shabazz can burn his own house down. I’d like him to leave my house alone.

  3. Car in Says:

    Honestly, we should give the people there credit who didn’t just bust out laughing at the stupidity.

    “Before you can take over our city, we will burn it.”

    How would we know the difference?

  5. Car in Says:

    Because they’ll be singing “NO JUSTICE NO PEACE” while they do it.

  6. I was going to say “Kumbaya”, but yours is better, Carin.

  7. Detroit burned to the ground? Sounds like a good start.

    Hmm, I thought the prison cities were going to be New York and Los Angeles. Guess Snake Plissken will have to glide in to Detroit, instead. He can land on the Renaissance Center.

    Burn,baby, burn

    We’ve heard this before.

    Someone should point out to Shabazz that tactical nukes are much more efficient than fire as a starting point for urban renewal, and produce much less CO2 – going green is important, don’t cha know?

  11. I just wanna see the implosions and the big steamrollers. And then watch all the denizens of Detroit scratch their collective heads. Without handouts these morons would be starving and at each others’ throats in a week. To hell with ’em.

  12. Sounds like what they really need is high-speed rail. I hear it solves all SORTS of problems, like MAGIC!

  13. Car in Says:

    Waltermittyish is onto something …

    Advance urban transportation will solve all of Detroit’s problems.

  14. agiledog Says:

    The irony of all the AUTO workers taking TRAINS would just be too much.

  15. The idea that most of the citizens of Detroit could:
    1. Spell ‘Irony’.
    2. Define it.
    3. Use it in a sentence is just too much.
