My (ABL) response to Karoli's response to my response to Joan Walsh's response regarding last week's kerfuffle.

Are you confused yet? I sure as hell am.

I haven't read all the relevant tweet streams, but here are my thoughts:

I appreciate what @Karoli is trying to do and I know it comes from a good place. Her post, though, misses the point that I made.

Which is that black voices have been shut out from The Base. The pundits say the base is disappointed. I am not disappointed.

Our voices are looked upon with condescension. Not by any blogger specifically, but by the "purists" generally.

The comment section of DKos, FDL, and Salon are replete with statements like "what has Obama done for black people? Why are they so loyal?"

"What does Obama have to do to make them realize he is Bush lite, a pussy, a bootlicker, etc."

It makes me feel as if we only count when it comes to crunching numbers. We are asked to get over the race stuff b/c it's all about class.

11/04/2011 10:41:31 WIB
πŸŽƒ Imani Gandy Corn πŸŽƒ @AngryBlackLady

And then we are told to focus on Wisconsin, Michigan, Arizona, whatever. If you read my blog, or Peoples View, or BWD or WEE See You...

You will notice that we ARE concerned about those issues. And are active in bringing them to the forefront. So it is a bit insulting...

11/04/2011 10:43:11 WIB
πŸŽƒ Imani Gandy Corn πŸŽƒ @AngryBlackLady

to be told that we aren't focused on the "right" issues.

I was ready to let the Walsh dust-up go b/c in the grand scheme of things, it's a minor issue. She, however, wrote a self-serving post...

which portrayed me and @truthrose1 as angry narcissistic race-baiters. It was that post, and her misrepresentation of Reed's article...

πŸŽƒ Imani Gandy Corn πŸŽƒ @AngryBlackLady

that made me angry. I find it sad that it takes a blog post written by a white woman (a lovely one at that) to elicit a response from Walsh.

My points were stated clearly. She could have addressed those. Instead, she addresses what Karoli's characterization of my "issue" is.

So it is still troubling to me to hear certain progs calling for a primary, and saying we should wait to support Obama, when I know...

That black folks (generally) were unwavering in their support for Clinton, Gore, Kerry, & would have been unwavering in support for Hillary

11/04/2011 10:50:11 WIB
πŸŽƒ Imani Gandy Corn πŸŽƒ @AngryBlackLady

if Hillary had won the primary. But she didn't. And people have been disrespectful and downright disgusting in their attacks on Obama.

11/04/2011 10:50:55 WIB
πŸŽƒ Imani Gandy Corn πŸŽƒ @AngryBlackLady

Also, the "progs" calling for a primary; the Kossacks, AmericaBloggers, FDLrs were telling folks not to vote in 2010. THEY are the problem.

And because Glenn Greenwald's over-the-top anti-Obama rhetoric is so pernicious, i can't separate Walsh from the garbage he spews. #theend

RT @erikkain: @AngryBlackLady it couldn't possibly be that Greenwald has consistent objections to a set of policies and writes about those regardless...

RT @erikkain: @AngryBlackLady ...of political party. You would rather he be a hypocrite for Obama than true to his beliefs.

@erikkain his objections are replete with pernicious rhetoric about "blind followers" and "loyalty to Their Leader." It is BS and insulting.
