LET’S SKIP PAST ALL OF THE JOKING AROUND, PREDICTABLE HOT TAKES AND START WORKING TOWARD WINNING THE NEXT ONE IN A LANDSLIDE WITH ENTHUSIASTIC SUPPORT FROM ALL BLACK MEN
A big problem is happening with
White liberals and their support from Black male voters.
For several decades White liberals have been taking the Black male vote and simply expecting it for nothing in return.
Even worse, what Black men have received has been increased institutionalized violence in exchange for their vote. White liberals are going to need to go directly in person and make your case for your political party.
Now this IS NOT CULTURAL APPROPRIATION. This is CULTURAL SHARING.
I intend to arm you with the proper language to use when you go directly into the PHYSICAL working class, Black community to make your case to Black men in person. In our culture, especially out in California and up to Washington State, we consider political exchange and activity to be a “Fade”. We use this language in the context of coalition building and we call it “Running A Fade”.
Now. You may have some internalized racist stereotypes about Black men in politics of which you need to let go of if you wish for this to be a successful endeavor and earn back some Black Male support at the ballot box. Black men are far more nuanced and open minded about liberal politics than some tacky click bait may suggest. So don’t be rhetorically weak. Acknowledge the flaws and things Black men collectively don’t like about your party head on and let them know that you are fully aware of these things.
From there, you make your case for why they still need to vote for your party and then close it with. “I NEED YOU TO RUN MY FADE”. The Brothas will be enthusiastic to know that you cared enough to learn the vernacular and may even forget about social distancing to approach you for a hi five. depending on your comfort level in this pandemic, you can choose to oblige in that or not.
I pray this message reaches you in good health and you have my full support in getting out and earning back the Black Male Vote.
