Re: MY HERO W.H.O. FIXES SYSTEM, EXCEPT WHEN THEY BREAK …SUNDAY PM UPDATE

MY HERO W.H.O. FIXES SYSTEMS…EXCEPT WHEN THEY BREAK TALENTED JOURNALISTS ON PURPOSE AND BY CRUEL INTENTION, TOO.

MSNBC- ABOUT TO TURN TO JEN PSAKI = WHICH BEGS THE QUESTION…

WHY HAS MSNBC CONSISTENTLY BUILT BIPOC AUDIENCES WITH Talented and accomplished Journalists, then kicked them (and their audiences!) to the curb — since Roland Martin, if memory serves?

FULL DISCLOSURE: I AM NOT A FAN OF ANY OF WHAT I CALL “The Alphabet Soup Gang of ‘news as another form and adult entertainment’* That being said, Joy Reid was missed. Tiffany cross will be missed. Maybe we might disagree on a particular issue/set of issues Quiet as it is kept, not ever did I experience any disagreement. As an only recently retired dual credentialed LAUSD District Intern SPED educator with 50 years of experience, if I can validate what is said with multiple independent sources, I never had any issues agreeing with Ms. Reid and or Ms. Cross. Good luck MSNBC.

*FYI, FOX Entertainment, Inc.is part of that soup, filed under “F”.

In other corners, “holy” hurdlers yearning to breathe free. But having come without their researched, written and published first person historical narratives, they are vulnerable to ego/ID ad hominem attacks. See this Medium.com “down for the culture” writers group https://www.writersandeditorsofcolor.com/blkinternet-ee60ad762927 .

Next, imagine a room full of comparative first-person-historical narratives, identifying similarities, differences, a strong conservatism born of too much fighting within and without. Instead, hypervigilance, fear, distrust-after-cruel-trust violations, and a dominant European culture and writing-for-publication ownership of imprimaturs and the means of publication and voila(!) “purity standards/blood purity standards” recreate the elite, release of Pan African American 2.0, just the latest long-game spawn of the OG-MC masters of DIVIDE_AND_CONQUER.

Another logical consequence of PanAfricanAmerican Boomer Generation embracing the first-black-this-or-that, then settling for less than excellence by supporting less-than-high standards while rewarding mediocrity “just because they are not pink-skinned males”. When Michelle Obama cannot demand excellence in engaging and better-edited non-fiction narrative from Barack Hussein Obama, who should have followed her template and cut down his total pages by half, can we expect the 18–24 year old cohort to be anything besides frustrated and disappointed, again?

Musical interlude here:

Featuring My personal Masters of the Voice-as-instrument-of-Clear-Pronunciation, THE MANHATTAN TRANSFER!

SO, as this engagement with the current zeitigest comes to a close, I encourage all writers, regardless of skin color, gender, LGBTQIA+ status, or political persuasion-of-the-moment to go back and find their too often hiding-in-plain-sight-with-”That Aunt or other cousin(S) willing to talk after attending too many memorials for Newly Ascended Ancestors” first person historical and therefore engage-able but unassailable possible truths, ASAP.

Besides, in the 21st Century, and due directly to the BEGINNING OF COVID-19 LOCKDOWN* the funerals are posted on You Tube. And please do not whine to me about Poison Ivy League schools no longer even bothering teaching the discipline of rehearsals-before-sharing-original content from personal devices — parents, give the speakers written note on their presentations. As I personally can attest, flawless modelling on the day-of-performance is simply and clearly NEVER ENOUGH.

*-Yes, about those leder-board Pyrrhic victories, born of lockdowns only, oddly, actually occurring in predetermined areas, ask why this was, is and ever might continue to be the reality. PLEASE, please ask until you have an answer that corresponds with being at the tops of the COVID-19 hospitalizations AND Covid-19 deaths since the USA first recognized the Pandemic in the 2019 pre-Thanksgiving Break Edition of CNN10. Remember CNN TEN?
