Run, house negro, run
The house negro has lost his mind
Responding to the Call: The New Black Vanguard Conference (The House Negro convention)
Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium
Has the establishment black leadership become irrelevant? Conservative black Americans say “yes,” and they're calling for the reinstitution of principled black leadership in the tradition of Booker T. Washington and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Organizations such as the NAACP, Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow/PUSH, and the Congressional Black Caucus have utterly failed to provide moral leadership in the black community and have become the tools for extremist political agendas.
In response, BOND (the Brotherhood Organization of A New Destiny) and The Heritage Foundation are co-sponsoring an historic conference – Responding To The Call: The New Black Vanguard Conference – to address this crisis and the spiraling moral and physical decline taking place within America’s inner cities.
Conference participants will also address ways to counter the liberals’ attack on distinguished and accomplished black Americans such as Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Justice Clarence Thomas. Audience members will be able to participate in a Question and Answer session at the conclusion of the program.

Roy Innis stood by Giuliani as called on the cops to attack City Hall when David Dinkins was mayor.
Most black New Yorkers hate him with a passion.
Look, this coon show was run by and for white people and most black people would have laughed at these people.
Of course, the people hosting this were as white as a CCC meeting. The person doing the introduction looks like she got lost at an Ayran Nation's meeting.
But I'm sick and fucking tired of these fools. They run down the people elected by millions of blacks as ignorant, when they know that their ideology holds no truck with most black people.
Run, you big talking toms. You think your ideas are so great, run for office.
Jesse Lee Peterson, you don't think Maxine Waters is doing her job, run against her. Get her on a stage in South Central and debate her and her ideas. Drop that rhetoric in a room of black people, away from your white masters.
Alan Keyes got what, four percent of the black vote in Illinois?
If you think you can do better than the currently elected officials, run for their seats.
See how far you get. Bring your house negro message to black America and see where it goes.
The sad part is that for all their talk of independence, they are the bitches of rich, white men.
I think Malcolm X had a message for these people:
To understand this, you have to go back to what [the] young brother here referred to as the house Negro and the field Negro -- back during slavery. There was two kinds of slaves. There was the house Negro and the field Negro. The house Negroes - they lived in the house with master, they dressed pretty good, they ate good 'cause they ate his food -- what he left. They lived in the attic or the basement, but still they lived near the master; and they loved their master more than the master loved himself. They would give their life to save the master's house quicker than the master would. The house Negro, if the master said, "We got a good house here," the house Negro would say, "Yeah, we got a good house here." Whenever the master said "we," he said "we." That's how you can tell a house Negro.
If the master's house caught on fire, the house Negro would fight harder to put the blaze out than the master would. If the master got sick, the house Negro would say, "What's the matter, boss, we sick?" We sick! He identified himself with his master more than his master identified with himself. And if you came to the house Negro and said, "Let's run away, let's escape, let's separate," the house Negro would look at you and say, "Man, you crazy. What you mean, separate? Where is there a better house than this? Where can I wear better clothes than this? Where can I eat better food than this?" That was that house Negro. In those days he was called a "house nigger." And that's what we call him today, because we've still got some house niggers running around here.
This modern house Negro loves his master. He wants to live near him. He'll pay three times as much as the house is worth just to live near his master, and then brag about "I'm the only Negro out here." "I'm the only one on my job." "I'm the only one in this school." You're nothing but a house Negro. And if someone comes to you right now and says, "Let's separate," you say the same thing that the house Negro said on the plantation. "What you mean, separate? From America? This good white man? Where you going to get a better job than you get here?" I mean, this is what you say. "I ain't left nothing in Africa," that's what you say. Why, you left your mind in Africa.
On that same plantation, there was the field Negro. The field Negro -- those were the masses. There were always more Negroes in the field than there was Negroes in the house. The Negro in the field caught hell. He ate leftovers. In the house they ate high up on the hog. The Negro in the field didn't get nothing but what was left of the insides of the hog. They call 'em "chitt'lin'" nowadays. In those days they called them what they were: guts. That's what you were -- a gut-eater. And some of you all still gut-eaters.
The field Negro was beaten from morning to night. He lived in a shack, in a hut; He wore old, castoff clothes. He hated his master. I say he hated his master. He was intelligent. That house Negro loved his master. But that field Negro -- remember, they were in the majority, and they hated the master. When the house caught on fire, he didn't try and put it out; that field Negro prayed for a wind, for a breeze. When the master got sick, the field Negro prayed that he'd die. If someone come [sic] to the field Negro and said, "Let's separate, let's run," he didn't say "Where we going?" He'd say, "Any place is better than here." You've got field Negroes in America today. I'm a field Negro. The masses are the field Negroes. When they see this man's house on fire, you don't hear these little Negroes talking about "our government is in trouble." They say, "The government is in trouble." Imagine a Negro: "Our government"! I even heard one say "our astronauts." They won't even let him near the plant -- and "our astronauts"! "Our Navy" -- that's a Negro that's out of his mind. That's a Negro that's out of his mind.
Most black people feel exactly the same way about these folks today.
