The Finger Point of Doom

PK Note: I’ve been, busy. For those who have donated to the “I  Can See” campaign, expect a full business plan by Wednesday. There will be a flurry of posts all next week, but the long awaited Atlanta/Walking Dead piece debuts tomorrow. Reading book after book about Detroit has been educational and incredibly depressing. No one wants to point out why the city collapsed, so I’m working overtime on a book detailing why it did.

Is this “full-nigga” Mr. Jackson?

Both Chris Rock and Don Cheadle have stated Mein Obama needs to go full-gangsta if re-elected in November. Now, Samuel L. Jackson has let slip the primary reason Black people vote for Black politicians (regardless of what they do once in office, as evidenced by Coleman Young’s tenor as mayor of Black Detroit from 1973 – 1994): because they are Black:

Barack Obama‘s politics meant nothing to Samuel L. Jackson because the “Pulp Fiction” star only voted for the president for one reason and one reason only … because he’s black.

In an interview with Ebony magazine, Jackson explained, “I voted for Barack because he was black. ‘Cuz that’s why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them … That’s American politics, pure and simple. [Obama’s] message didn’t mean [bleep] to me.”

Jackson then went on to drop the N-word several times when discussing Obama, telling the mag, “When it comes down to it, they wouldn’t have elected a [bleep]. Because, what’s a [bleep]? A [bleep] is scary. Obama ain’t scary at all. [Bleeps] don’t have beers at the White House. [Bleeps] don’t let some white dude, while you in the middle of a speech, call [him] a liar. A [bleep] would have stopped the meeting right there and said, ‘Who the [bleep] said that?’ I hope Obama gets scary in the next four years, ‘cuz he ain’t gotta worry about getting re-elected.”

Smacks of … Obama needs to Black it up. So, we gotta ask …

Samuel L. Jackson just proving – once again – that “The Standard” is real. Damn real. Obama going full nigga, is that really what Black people want? Coleman Young bragged about being The Mother Fucker in Charge (MFIC) of Detroit, which eventually gave us the Hip Hop mayor of that same city, Kwame Kilpatrick.

Obama getting the chance to go full-nigga, full-gangsta? We’ve seen what happens when a city (think Detroit, Baltimore, Newark, New Orleans, Atlanta, etc.) goes that way. The results aren’t pretty.

So, if you are an elected official out there or someone considering running for public office, please, please see what happened when Gov. Jan Brewer dared pull out the finger point of doom:

This may turn out to be one of the symbolic images of the Obama years.

The governor of a major state pointing her finger at the president of the United States.

Republican Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said President Obama objected to her description of an earlier meeting in the Oval Office over immigration policy. The White House said Brewer distorted the details of that meeting in her book.

In some ways, the point reflects the political divisions of our time.

What happened next? Her book became an instant best-seller:

That little dust-up with President Obama has done wonders for sales of Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s book Scorpions for Breakfast. It’s now the 21st bestselling title on Amazon, up from number 285,568 a day ago. That’s a post-finger wag sales bounce of more than 1.3 million percent.

All of America can’t be saved. Not yet. But to instantly make a name for yourself, don’t back down when confronted by purported MFIC’s. Full-nigga, Mr. Jackson? Knowing that white America flees any area that goes quasi-nigga, it should be obvious to an enterprising leader that just utilizing the finger point of doom against those who are being implored to go any variation of “nigga” must be greeted with a simple word: No.

That’s the power of the finger point of doom. Instantly, the person who stands up to Organized Blackness becomes a hero.
