when I read something like what Lemieux puts out, the first question I ask, is "what purpose does this serve?"

as in, why does one tie Dave Chappelle and other Black men who hold reactionary views as the standard bearer of Black men writ large? what does the "othering" of anyone serve to do? Make it acceptable to whichever audience that may receive it, to see these people as disposable.

We recognize this with any other group. Hell, when Dave is out there talking about trans people in the way he does on stage, we recognize it there. he hints ever so lightly at the racism of white people who are also gay or trans, but not as much at the class of those people who are doing the racism (i.e. they have the money, the social status, and thus the power to exert the racism).

Capitalism needs the Black boogeyman, as much as it needs the Black mule (often hoisted upon Black women) to justify the role Black people hold within US capitalism as the reserve army of labor, that is to say, to make sure that Black people exist so that capital can extract their work for the lowest price (which in some cases, if you think about mass incarceration, which strikes Black people the most disproportionately across gender, can be zero-cost).

The newest wrinkle, one that's been deployed constantly since the advent of Civil Rights legislation and the strategy of the powers that be to toss a few crumbs unto Black people so that they can move into the middle class (itself a whole conversation), is that Black people and other "representative" members of otherwise marginalized groups are used to be the ushers of this disposability.

That is to say, people like Lemieux, because they are Black, because they are women, because they appear progressive, are used by the ruling class to make people "undesirable"... to LIBERALS. "These people know what they're talking about, they're ____"

Fox News under a different flag. Dave Chappelle in a different body.

This is BILL COSBY shit.

And it doesn't have to be a Black woman. Damon Young and them did the same thing with the "White People of Black People".

when really all you need to say is "Some Black Men Are Reactionary. Others are violent. Some are both. Why is this?" Instead of doing the math, they want to do the propaganda.

None of this gets us closer to pushing the forces that cause the majority of Black suffering off the perch.

Yes, I'm mad. Let's move on.
