There has been a proliferation of “black” politicians who have been indicted, convicted, and imprisoned due to malfeasance.
Reminds me of when I ran for office. Political kingmakers and their ignoramuses were sneaking, sniffing, and snooping for tantalizing secrets or scuttle-butt information to malign my candidacy.
Sorry, boys, but your booby traps didn’t work!
Legendary and political maverick, Adam Clayton Powell, taught me how not to be a fool.
Benefiting from his wisdom, I prepared myself for your viciousness and malarkey! With the precision of a neurosurgeon, I carefully crafted my personal, professional, and business life, activities, and relationships to withstand the onslaught of your malicious scrutiny!
Foremost, I have never forgotten that I am “black!”
Haven’t had the pleasure to consult with my fellow columnist, Jason Henry. As you know, Jason recently ran for office, too. Don’t need a crystal ball, fortune cookies, or tea leaves to predict that Jason probably knew that as a “black” candidate he had to maintain a “squeaky” clean image, behavior, conduct, attitude, friendships, associations, and paper work! Without a doubt, our reputations must be beyond reproach and our documents must be able to sustain scrutiny—24/7!
Wonder if Jason’s strategists forewarned him on the facts of political life—-that “black” candidates who are considered “viable and formidable” are susceptible to underhanded shenanigans and double-cross dealings involving sex, drugs, and money. Political operatives, along with their surrogates and patsies, are handsomely rewarded for targeting our “black” candidates just like scurrilous women are programmed to scandalize our “black” athletes!
Being a politician is amorous, intoxicating, and sensuous as one’s inflationary ego is constantly caressed, strummed, pampered, and stroked as if it was a kitty. Most “black” politicians soon become hypnotic “junkies” which renders them hopelessly dependent on the supplier. Once sedated, their addiction leads to political suicide and career ruination.
As the powerful gains access, “black” politicians slowly surrender to the “jackpot” of extremes and excesses. Given intravenously, they are left in an euphoric state which necessitates them to yearn, to beg, and to plead for more, and more, and more.
Unaccustomed to judicial duplicity, “black” politicians scurry to seek deals that are similarly awarded to their “white” political brethren only to be prescribed more “time” for the same “crime!”
Politics is a blood-sucking sport with vulgar and warped people who will obliterate your Negroid a** in a New York minute!
So, too, will prison!
