In this deceitful American game of power politics, the Negroes (i.e., the race problem, the integration and civil rights issues) are nothing but tools, used by one group of whites called liberals against another group of whites called conservatives, either to get into power, or to remain in power.
The white liberal differs from the white conservative only in one way: The liberal is more deceitful than the conservative. The liberal is more hypocritical than the conservative.
Both want power, but the white liberal is the one who has perfected the art of posing as the Negro’s friend, and benefactor; and by winning the friendship, allegiance, and support of the Negro, the white liberal is able to use the Negro as a pawn or tool in this political football game that is contantly raging between the white liberals and the white conservatives.
Politically, the American Negro is nothing but a football, and the white liberals control this mentally dead ball through tricks of tokenism: false promises of integration and civil rights.
The white librals control the Negro and the Negro vote by controlling the Negro civil rights leaders, they can also control and contain the Negro’s struggle, and they can control the Negro’s so-called “revolt.”
The Negro revolution is controlled by foxy white liberals, by the Government itself.
Malcolm talks about the hypocrisy of white liberals. This is from a speech which was given on December 1st, 1963. Taken from Malcolm X: The Man and His Times(pages 283-285)
By funding the civil rights organizations, the white liberals were able to control and keep the civil rights leaders in check from getting involved in meaningful action. Since the civil rights leaders grew dependant on the money being given to them by these white people, they felt that they had no choice but to play by the ground rules layed down to them by the power structure. The white liberals would use these leaders to tell the masses of black people that the race issue is making progress; that black people are “satisfied.” This trick is called tokenism.
Even the Nation of Islam was being controlled by Nazi’s who were secretly negotiating with Elijah Muhammad during the 60’s.(via disciplesofmalcolm)
first to put into action and to organize all the powers of society for this purpose; and then the others had to follow its example.
Anton Pannekoe, on WWII
Wow - basically, allied powers were super successful colonial powers, while Germany, late and less successful in the colonial game, had to expand by other means, stepping on more industrial, European toes rather than less-developed, non-European grounds.
Same thing with Japan then, eh? Japan would have liked to be a colonial power, if it could, but in its expansion throughout Asia, it butted heads with the USA (in economic interests in the Philippines and elsewhere?).
Of course, you never get these perspectives in the mainstream. So simple. So reasonable.
