“Jesse’s “Unresolved Issues” with Obama…””

Wow…

This stuff just keeps getting gooder and gooder…
Did I say, “Wow or what???”

Ok, let get right at it…
Check it, in church this weekend at CCC, the young minister began his sermon with a very familiar scripture, “John 8:1-11” the woman caught in adultery. He then took the topic “Unresolved Issues…”
Wow…
My mind immediately flashed to the “Jesse and Obama” Drama… I said out loud, “that’s it; Jesse’s unresolved issues” with Obama…”” The young minister went on to say that all the accused accusers were holding stones… These were stones of inferiority; stones of envy; stones of jealousy; stones of strife; stones of prejudices; so forth and so on!
Wow…
That was really a powerful statement…

I began to see clearly the “Cultural dynamics” between these two Brothas from the same hood…
It was obvious that Jesse has “unresolved issues” with Obama…
It is obvious that Jesse is holding all the stones the young minister spoke about…
Now the next question was why???

Why was Jesse holding all these stones against Obama???
What were the issues that caused Jesse to “implode before he exploded” on a National news network… Well, as the young minister so eloquently put it, “we all have unresolved issues… Just as the accused, we all must address these issues individually… And just as each of her accusers did, we must all drop our stones and move on… “

Wow…
That’s some powerful stuff…
So has Jesse resolved his issues with Obama…?
I dare say not…
I doubt he has even called Obama…
I believe that Jesse’s issues are built on the stones of jealousy and envy… I believe it is time for Jesse to do as Jesse Jr. said, “Stop and Keep hope alive…” Jesse needs to stop trying to be the “next great black leader” because his time is in its twilight stage… Jesse has done some great things during his watch but (wow, a big but in the room) now it is time for new leadership… If Jesse really wants to maintain his legacy, he needs to spend the rest of his time choosing his successor… These aint the sixties, these be the zero years… There is a highly motivated generation of twenty and thirty-something eagerly waiting respectfully to take their turn… So Jesse, do what your mantra has been for years, “keep hope alive” in your successor…

I have from a very reliable source that Jesse’s Rainbow PUSH recent convention was lacking something that Obama has quite successfully conquered in all of his “rock star” campaigning, “Twenty and Thirty something’s…” Yes, there is a major disconnect between the old leaders and the young leaders… This is a reflection on the leadership (of PUSH) not a lack of twenty and thirty somethings that are ready and willing to lead… But (there goes that big but again) Obama has reinvigorated millions of twenty and thirty somethings… This group has become the largest most culturally conscious “registered” voting block since the sixties… And as the young minister stated in his closing remarks, “ we all have our own dirty windows that need cleaning before we try to throw a stone at someone else’s window…”
Can you feel me???
Do you feel like I do???
Let me hear you say,

“Yes, yes, yes we can…

Now, you all know, I like to keep it exciting…
America has its own “unresolved issues” that must be dealt with… CNN is doing a series call, “what it is like being black in America???” This along speaks volumes about the “unresolved issues” we as Americans face everyday… Ms O’Brien is probably not the right person to host this series because “she herself could have”unresolved issues” about her Blackness!!!”” I Believe Ms Phillips would have done a better job because she does not have a dog in the race… Ms Phillips did an excellent job with an earlier documentary “Noose!”

Yes, America has its own “unresolved issues” that is apparent by the way we are addressed and handled by “the news media” in general… Again, I have it from a very reliable source that “the news media” sometimes treats us as “Monkeys!” It was very obvious at the PUSH convention, my source said… They don’t take us seriously…
And when a Jesse does a stunt, it simply reinforce their actions… Therefore if we are thought of as “monkeys” instead of serious people of color, then there is no wonder we as a people is so divided…
Monkeys can’t read…
Get the picture???
Whose fault is it???
That’s simple; it is all of our fault…
Firstly, the news media, because they have fired all the people of color from the (neighbor) hood…
Secondly, black leaders like Jesse, whose actions reinforce this notion…
Dah…
And thirdly, the rest of us people of color who sit back and say nothing…

Wow…
Isn’t that some messed up stuff???
So what do we say to these things???
I don’t know exactly but (and there is that big black but again) one thing is for certain, it is time for the next generation to step up and say something for themselves…
