Rasheed, Muhammad. "An Improper Application of Elderly Wisdom." Cartoon. The Official Website of Cartoonist M. Rasheed 22 Dec 2020. Pen & ink w/Adobe Photoshop color.
Zeke Allen - There's no such thing as "group economic uplift". It's a concept created by President Nixon's administration. The same administration that created the "war on drugs" concept and the "Southern strategy".
I'm baffled why so many Black people embrace concepts created by racists for Black people.
Muhammad Rasheed - You are confusing "group economic uplift" with "black capitalism/black economics." The latter is the grift scheme invented by Nixon.
The former is a politically unified identity group using their political pressure, legitimate representation and strategic vote and economic boycotts to get policies written and enforced to improve the quality of life for the entire group. This would include access to capital and the fair sharing of the nation's household wealth, land and government rule.
It would seem that your profile pic gives away the real reason you were triggered by this cartoon.
Zeke Allen - Your assumption about my profile is as ignorant and misguided as your response.
"Group economic" is just another name to describe Nixon's "black economics" scheme.
Read more and assume less.
Muhammad Rasheed - Everything I said was true and you confused the two concepts based on your triggering over the interracial component of the toon.
Please refrain from further emotional posting under my work. Thank you.
