What Happened To Black Unity and Solidarity?

In present day it seems like only when Black people's way of life is threatened do we, as a unit, come together for a common cause and interest. I just don't get how we can go from having such a powerful, meaningful organization such as the Panthers in the late '60s early '70s who stood up against police brutality, put fear in the heart of every pig you mentioned the words "Panther Party" to, to where we are now. What do we have now?

We have Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton.These white folks don't take Jesse or Al seriously because they're not aggressive enough. They say just enough not to get white people scared! You gotta scare these mutha fuckas and make them feel that THEIR way of life is threatened . When they feel threatened by a Black man with power, they lynch him. Look at Tupac, Martin, Malcolm, Mumia (not gone yet), Huey (who by the way I think was killed by a drug dealer who cut a deal with the pigs). Anyway, I've digressed...

The masses of Black people don't stick together and/or stand for nothing no more and it sickens me. As we all know, IF YOU DON'T STAND FOR SOMETHING, YOU'LL FALL FOR ANYTHING. Where's the unity?!

I don't know. I believe that by being threatening and trying to scare white people, you only set yourselves back. Why would you get more power or more respect by trying to bully everyone around. Bullies don't get respect, they get shot or thrown in jail. Try getting some better examples too. Malcolm X was killed by his fellow brothers, and Tupac was killed by a thug driveby from a rival rap group. I believe the black community will achieve more through peaceful demonstrations and dialogue on a united platform than violence and threats. Martin Luther King Jr. acheived more for the black cause through these methods than any other way. He wasn't feared, menacing, or anything violent. He was loved and looked up to by all.

I never said threaten. I was implying that we should resume using tactics as Huey P. Newton did. White folks get scared when a Black man uses the system against itself for political revolution. Tupac was killed by the government. They wanted him dead because he was "too smart". They don't care to find the killer either. They called to hospital when he was in critical condition to make sure he was dead. The same thing happened with Malcolm. They are scared of "too smart" Black men.

If that's what happened to Tupac and Malcolm X, please tell me where the proof of that is.

I have wondered about this myself and while I do not have the solution, I believe it lies in with the destruction of the social fabric of our communities as a result of Nixon's "War on Drugs".

That war has cost tens of thousands of lives and sent hundreds of thousands more to prison, to waste away their youth behind bars, only to return as older men who have been scarred for life. Having our communities turned into the open-air drug marts as depicted in the "it's so realistic!" show from HBO, "The Wire" has just destroyed the base from which we could act in a unified manner. Blacks who could left those communities; blacks who stayed had so many things to struggle with and against that enlisting in a larger "struggle" just seemed like more than could possibly be done.

Our government thrives on this divide and conquer model, such that even were this outcome neither planned for nor sought, the natural turning of the wheel brings about this sort of outcome.

We need a new wheel.
