A Term I Avoid Using

Over at the Black Agenda Report, there is a must read examination of the term, “Black Misleadership Class.”

I have concerns about the current political leadership in the Democratic Party generally, where it seems that geriatric careerism trumps (pun not intended) helping real people.

To the degree that black members of the Democratic Party follow this model, the only cause for additional opprobrium is that the needs of their community is more acute.

That being said, I am profoundly uncomfortable with the term, alternatively feeling that it should be reserved for people of color to use about other POCs.

In any case, it’s worth a read.
