Chicago's Black Leaders: No Second Term Coming

Reply Sun 16 Sep, 2012 02:59 am


I’m just back from a delightful trip down to a little sandwich shop on the Southside of Chicago where prominent members of the black community enjoy lunch served up with a side of political gossip. I relish the occasions I get invited to these little meetings and never know who’ll be sitting at the table with me but love the jerk chicken combo with extra “bodacious sauce”. In a corner over by a colorful mural celebrating the roaring-twenties and jazz I got an earful about the black community’s feeling about both the Obamas and their abandonment of Chicago for the sunny shores of Oahu in January.
This group of influential black Chicagoans calls themselves, informally, “The Think Squad” and has been a big help with stories and activities in the past. If you consider the Jesse Jacksons, Al Sharptons, and other “Justice Brothers” types on one side of the spectrum…the Think Squad is the polar opposite. These are good people who openly talk about how terrible the Democrat community has been for black people for the last four or five decades and how Obama and his acolytes have made a great many things worse for blacks since he took office. The Think Squad is not happy about the amnesty efforts for criminal Hispanics who broke American laws but are now able to push blacks out of work because of Obama’s intention to allow these people to become job-seekers in this dreadful economy. As one person at the table noted by waiving her hand at the scene out the window, “What the Hell has gotten any better since he became President. Where’s all that hope and change? All I see is crime and trash”.
“Listen bud, there’s no second term nothing and they know as much,” a Think Squader told me between bites of his bodacious sandwich. “All this is for show. Axelrod has already moved on but no one knows what to do and they’re kind of just limping around without a plan hoping those Romney people mess up or the media drags them across the finish line. But ain’t nobody in that top tier who thinks he’s going to win. It’s just not happening because they can’t fool people a second time”.......

I saw something on an Asian/English channel that explained that organized labor is starting to question its loyalty to the Democratic Party. Something about union loyalty being taken for granted.

Could the Democratic African-American demographic be thinking similar thoughts?

In my opinion, the future of American politics might need multiple parties, and post-election coalitions. It would be more transparent for voters to know they are voting for a party whose platform truly reflects their concerns.

We need a dozen or so political reforms, the most major of which should be runoff elections or instant runoff elections for all public offices. Nobody should ever fear to vote his first choice, at least on a first ballot, and nobody should ever hold any office with less than 50% of the vote. THAT would allow third party candidates to win elections; at present we're locked into a two party duopoly in which all we can do much of the time is vote for the least harm.

In this present case, we may have gotten lucky i.e. we're seeing the best ticket the GOP has ever put together against the worst ticket the dems ever have.

At least some blacks are waking up now to the reality of how badly they're being fucked by this deal their "leaders" claim to have with the demoKKKrats. You might want to watch aq few of Mike Carroll's videos...

Most of the influential community leaders in Chicago have names.

The article gives some of those names, try reading it.

I did read it. None of the "Think Squaders" is identified by name, unless "Think Squader" is their name. If you disagree, then you should have no trouble telling me their names. I'm sure the Chicago black community would be grateful to find out who its leaders are.

Oh my gosh, it's 2015 and I just found this thread. It sure looks like Carnac left the building. What a hoot.
