    Black agenda? You are confusing the agenda of some political groups with individual agendas. BLM, as an example doesn't care a whit about black lives. It's agenda is to replace the US federal government with a Marxist system. While they are serious about it, i wouldn't bet that they will succeed. The media uses sensationalism to sell its messages. I would recommend taking what the media reports with a grain of salt.

    Promoting minorities, particularly blacks. :roll:

    We were talking with a friend the other day and he said "hey, there must be that 1/2 of America is black". So, it wasn't only me who had that impression. :heartbreaker:
    It's either a cognitive thing (noticing the extraordinary as part of critical thinking) or blacks are being promoted/brought in front of the lights... by someone. :crazy:

    Oh the horror - blacks being over represented - brought 'in front of the lights'.

    I don't think the actual statistics support your perception though. It could be a function of the kind of things you choose to watch or it could just be that you're noticing the black characters more, and so creating a disproportionate image in your mind.

    The "black agenda" is really just the left wing media pandering to blacks so they can have their votes. Without the black vote the democrats are not in a good position. By brainwashing blacks to believe the right wing is racist, they secure their votes (even if they black people voting don't like their policies, they will still do as their democrat masters say)..so essentially.........SLAVERY (slavery that is expertly disguised as "caring about black people")

    The entertainment industry is solidly left wing and their product are working to change us as a society. Of course their violence has no adverse effect, people understand they are just playing around there.

    So by promoting, you are not referring to jobs, because that would be affirmative action. You are talking about the high visibility in media?

    For this country to live up to the promise of its Declaration of Independence: the “agenda”

    I’m sure there’s a myriad of ideas for how we’d get there. Obviously, square that numbers of ideas to get to the number of excuses of why we shouldn’t live up to the promises of our Declaration of Independence.

    We’ve got 240 plus years of bullshit to overcome.

    The past 240 years is history. What all of us have now is the present and our future. If we can't get along some on both sides will regret it. Blacks are treated well in the USA. It's their land of opportunity. They need to hitch up their pants and show the world what they are capable of. Whining and complaining, while producing fatherless babies, dropping out of school, aborting babies, and shooting each other needs to stop and only blacks can make that stop.

    It's about the rise of "Grievance Studies" which began more than a decade ago in some top-tier universities. The tenured professors who started these special departments are Marxists/Communists/Maoists. Original Marxism and Communism was very clearly based on economics with the philosophy that the poor, working class, lower classes (socialists) who are "oppressed" by the bourgeois rich (capitalists) would rise up in a violent overthrow of the capitalist system. It's been done before and failed, not only economically, but will 100's of millions of lives lost.

    The neo-Marxist strategy you are seeing today is "Cultural Marxism". While the end-goal is still to overthrow the capitalist system with it's ample opportunities for wealth (but unequal outcomes in wealth) the new tactic is to divert attention to a race war.

    Marxism/Communism/Maoism depends on a "common enemy" who is in a position of "unjust supremacy" at the expense of the majority, who are unfairly oppressed by that enemy.

    Marxism was a straightforward "rich versus poor" strategy with and outcome that no property was owned by individuals. All wealth and ownership went to the government which was to keep the collective of workers equally "secure" and to disallow any individual to achieve more material comfort above another individual, regardless of skills, competences or personal ambition. Of course the political class of Marxist/Communist leaders/organizers always made out very well financially until the workers figured out that they traded one set of oppressors for another....and equally of outcomes was a rather worse condition for them.

    With Cultural Marxism the common enemy is: white, male, cisgender. The "oppressed" are: minorities, women, gays, transgenders. The new strategy goes beyond equal outcomes of the original Marxist philosophy and avenges past injustices by punishing the "enemy". It robs the "enemy" not only of their wealth and property, but also seeks to humiliate and destroy personal reputations. It creates not an equal class, but flips the tables and creates a new ruling class, where the oppressed become the oppressors.

    Cultural Marxism is a particularly shrewd psychological tactic. It is not "rich and poor", which is an apparent economic condition. It is "Prove you are not a racist/oppressor." That turns the strategy into a religious-cult theology (i.e. Prove there is a God.) If you cannot prove you are not a racist, then you are by default, "the enemy" and part of "the problem".

    Black Lives Matter (leadership) has a very extreme and narrow focus. The "enemy" is not only white/male/cisgender, but any individual who is not Black African, Black Hispanic or black-skinned of other lineages.

    Most of today's protesters do not understand the goals of the organized leadership, much less do they have an education or knowledge of the real historical outcomes of Marxism/Communism/Maoism. Most of the people you see at the protests are being manipulated as useful idiots to get the leaders to their goal of flipping who is "dominant" more quickly.

    Most Americans of all races today are in favor of equality, regardless of skin color. They are also in favor of continuing the opportunities afforded by capitalism, as imperfect as it is, and would oppose an overthrow of this government by a totalitarian Marxist/Communist regime which would be far less perfect than what we have.

    Focusing on education, infrastructure, crime and other root causes of poverty would go a lot farther than having a small minority of political activists and most of the Democrat Party's elite opportunists continue to blame all of society's ills on skin color. We would be far ahead of where we find ourselves today if those in the political establishment had simply addressed and invested in solving root causes over the last 50 years rather than creating a small but vocal victim class. They've ignored the main issues because "racism" wins votes.

    Really, only 55 years, since the Voting Rights Act passed (56 years since the Civil Rights Act passed). Sadly, LBJ's Welfare packages maintained a paternalistic system of white supremacy (black dependency) by disincentivizing many in the black community from seeking equal independence and opportunity.

    Imagine where we would be, if instead of sending checks to individuals, just enough to barely be a poverty-maintenance minimum wage (but without having to work) we had invested all those dollars in inner-city schools, quality teachers, repairs to slum residences, keeping fathers in the home to raise their children, and keeping crime off the streets. The black community was doing far better financially before LBJ's sweeping welfare and food stamps programs. The problem was not Civil Rights nor the Voting Acts. Those two pieces of legislation were the best steps to right most of the wrongs of the previous 350 years. The problem happened with what we did next.

    It's not the white race's fault that too many blacks are producing fatherless babies, dropping out of school, aborting babies, and shooting each other.

    It is the "white man's" fault, not the "white race". His name was Lydon B. Johnson and his "War on Poverty" only offered welfare to single, unwed mothers with a "no man in the house" rule, did nothing for schools, and created a culture of men who can use their ample free time to make $1000 a day selling drugs. In government-subsidized poverty, life is cheap. White liberal Democrat elites in Washington D.C., despite their token black representatives, have supported, institutionalized and exacerbated this system for 55 years. They have no plantation platform without the continued dependence, poverty, despair and victimhood.

    There may be over compensation and distorted representation in commercials and films. The pressure is on in the U.S. to display diversity and avoid any suggestion of "racism". Negative publicity otherwise can ruin a company or an artwork.

    I think it's hard to explain. I suggest is has something to do with the running of the plantation model for democrats who, as owners, like to see their investments entertain them. So, when you see more of it, it pleases the owners more.

    Some of the city leaders are definitely fiddling today as "Rome" burns. Mayor Durkan of Seattle called lawless riots in her city a "block party" and the anarchy represents the "Summer of Love". :rolleyes:

    ~ There actually is no "Black agenda" in the USA. It is all a marketing campaign by Democrats to lure a certain segment of the voting block that actually is very small. The chants of "racism!" by politicians are designed to stirr up division and encourage militant groups like BLM. CHAZ in Seattle is a good example.
    The entire strategy has failed. The majority of Black Americans today do not believe that their skin color is a disadvantage .

    You’re right. Darn those blacks. They just don’t know their place anymore.
    I still remember the good ole days when women, homosexuals, negroes and Mexicans knew their place and kept their mouths shut.

    Blacks are 13.4% of the population, they get 13.4% of the cake, not half of it. That's how I see it and that's what I call equality.
    There is no reason to play favorites.
