DarkStar on March 24, 2008 at 10:54 pm Actually, “Black power committed suicide” is better. The Good Doctor on March 25, 2008 at 5:14 am maybe. but i’ll have to think about it a bit. brotherbrown on March 26, 2008 at 9:52 am Well, the revolution will not be televised. Black power is not someone standing at a podium defending his bad behavior. Black power resides elseswhere, like between my (and your) ears. Chanda Schwartz on March 26, 2008 at 10:50 am Black power may not be dead just yet…however, ignorance and stupidity sure are alive and kickin’!!!!! tootsie on March 26, 2008 at 1:38 pm The embodiment of black power does not reside with one person but a collection of many,you give the Mayor to much credit. gazelle du Sahara on March 27, 2008 at 8:52 am No, black power is not dead. People just high Jack it sometimes and shrowd themselves in its rhetoric for their own ends. The Good Doctor on March 27, 2008 at 11:29 am gazelle, you hit the nail on the head. but the question is why is it so “hijackable?” i know the answer. tootsie on March 27, 2008 at 11:54 am Doc lets start with a working definition,define “black power” Mr. Green on March 27, 2008 at 4:19 pm I’ll give it a shot … this is my first reply, by the way. Black Power is a movement of black people all over the world, especially those in the U.S. Perhaps most prominent in the late ’60s and early ’70s, Black Power places an emphasis on racial pride and the founding of black cultural and political institutions to support and promote black group interests, advance black ideals, and confirm black autonomy. bygbaby on March 28, 2008 at 2:51 am Perhaps Black Power is the only thing that needs to be dead. Im just saying!!! Bygbaby gazelle du Sahara on March 31, 2008 at 8:00 am do tell Dr Spence, do tell, to me it’s no different fom how other “power/solidarity” movements are hijacked Cobb on April 2, 2008 at 2:21 am Black power is impatience. It is the bogard made manifest whether or not it is ready for primetime. It is a distinctly America sort of hubris ready to take over whatever world it desires. Black power is hijackable because people hunger for a great and powerful Oz.
