Black-Hating Negroes and Their Uses: David Clarke at Homeland Security

by Glen Ford, BAR

David Clarke, the sheriff of Milwaukee County who appears slated for a top post at the Department of Homeland Security, has made himself valuable to the White Man’s Party through ostentatious display of hatred and contempt for his fellow Blacks. Clarke is the go-to Negro for denunciations of Black Lives Matter (“Black Lies Matter,” in his words) as Islamic State sympathizers who should be “scooped” up, charged with treason and detained “indefinitely at Gitmo.” Clarke shares his repugnant political specialty with a debased cast of domestic and international characters, including presidents Yoweri Museveni and Salva Kiir, of Uganda and South Sudan, respectively, and Roy Innis, the late former leader of CORE, the Congress of Racial Equality.

All three of the living professional Black-hating-Negroes make themselves readily identifiable as eager allies of American-style white supremacy by wearing huge black cowboy hats. Yoweri Museveni, Ronald Reagan’s favorite African since seizing power in Uganda in 1986, turned his country’s army into a central African military appendage of U.S. imperialism. Under Washington’s direction, Museveni incorporated minority Tutsis from neighboring Rwanda into his armed forces, then supported their 1990 invasion of Rwanda, which led to mass tribal slaughter and the overthrow of the majority Hutu government, followed by the invasion and occupation of the Democratic Republic of Congo by Rwandan Tutsi forces under Paul Kagame, resulting in the death of more than six million Congolese, and still counting. (Kagame should also wear a cowboy hat, but prefers the military beret.) As mercenaries of U.S. Empire, both Museveni and Kagame contribute troops to virtually every western-funded “peace keeping” operation on the continent…

  1. “6 million”! LOL

  2. Why are you singling out sheriff Clark? Because he is Black, right? In your world Blacks by definition are on the right side of history? The moment they are born and discover the color of their skin they become virtuous?

    • what are you talking about? this is by Glen Ford. I’m not “singling out” anyone.

    • No one in this solar system, save the blessedly ignorant, thinks black people have been born on the right side of history, at least not in America for the last four centuries. There are legions who have kicked the traps set for them by the dominant culture and become successful but with no help from tools like Sheriff Clark. Years ago I read an interview with James Baldwin who nailed people like this, he said the ultimate goal in oppression theory is for the oppressed oppress themselves. This is a lawman, right? Who better to know the environment where crime flourishes….and this is his take on the problem?
      “Let me tell you why blacks sell drugs and involve themselves in criminal behavior instead of a more socially acceptable lifestyle — because they’re uneducated, they’re lazy, and they’re morally bankrupt….”
      Who ensures they are undereducated? Who keeps the flow of drugs and guns pouring into the black community? Who profits from the prison industry one in four are destined to serve? But Sheriff Clark isn’t alone in ignoring the source of America’s detriment (and his profit), there are plenty of self-hating white Americans who can’t get enough of the oppressor and want to give all our power to the Elite….for instance the mommy and daddy Clintons type or any other subhumans who want to privatize and sell you the air you breathe.
      By the way, what’s that term popular today….”asshat”? Why is a hemmorhoid like a cowboy hat? Sooner or later every asshole ends up with one.

      • Statistically, David Clarke was more likely to have lived on the wrong side than as a sheriff. He probably had disconnect from his community instilled in him.
        @utu: Not sure if trolling or serious.
