What Do We Want? A Five Part Series

Posted by Jack Stephens on August 12, 2008

I got this e-mail from the blogger Brown Man, check it out:

I’ve heard a constant refrain lately – at work, on TV, on the internet – from some of my black brethren about Barack Obama.

He doesn’t need to “lecture black people” about personal responsibility.

He should be mindful of the tone he uses when he speaks to us.

He’s just saying what racist white people want to hear.

He sacrifices black people to score points with whites and other non-blacks.

I was offended by his criticism of black people.

What gives him the right to call anybody out about anything?

Since he doesn’t have anything good to say about black people he shouldn’t say anything at all.

What do we want from this man?

Over the next five days, the blog Brown Man Thinking Hard presents “What Do We Want?” which will explore some of the issues that underlie this intraracial discord within black America.
