Fenty And The New Mulatto Elite

 

Fenty And The New Mulatto Elite

Chance: Mayor Adrian M. Fenty is the current Mayor of Washington D.C. and he is a young man. Adrian M. Fenty is the sixth Mayor elected in Washington D.C. he started his term in office on January 2, 2007. He was born on December 7, 1970 to a black father and white mother. There has been some controversy surrounding Mayor Fenty due to his choice of appointees to various offices (positions) in Washington D.C. and this has made some blacks very unhappy. Out of the ten most powerful positions in the mayors cabinet five whites, three Asians, one

Hispanic, and just one black.

This has causes many blacks to feel that that Mayor Fenty feels that blacks can’t politically govern themselves and therefore, need whites and now even Asians over them. Long ago in America in the 19th century and early

 

20th century there was a group called mulattoes (sometimes spelled mulattos) these mulattoes were mixed with black and white.

The mulattoes were considered a totally separate group from blacks and whites. In the early part of the twentieth century the one drop blood also called the one drop rule said that anyone with one drop of black blood or black ancestry was to be considered a black person. The American government passed the one drop rule and mulattoes were forced to be labeled black and no longer labeled mulattoes.

Every since then blacks have always had a mulatto elite politically, educationally, intellectually and economically helping to guide them. Fenty is considered to be a part of the mixed race people therefore, a mulatto elite politician. Some blacks, whites, and even certain members of other ethnic group believe that blacks are incapable of governing themselves. Therefore, still in need of a mulatto elite and whites to help them. Do I believe that Fenty believe that blacks have a hard time cooperating with each other and in general governing themselves? The answer is yes.

 In general too many blacks often have a hard time respecting each other and cooperating politically and even socially with each other. Therefore, Fenty knowing this appointed nine non blacks and only one black, because whites, Asians, and Latinos in America in general often cooperate with each other, and therefore, are more than likely to corporate with Fenty. If blacks don’t want a half white elite (mulatto elite) over them then they should let the mixed race people who have black and white ancestry separate from the black race and go back to their own mixed race category (mulatto) the way it use to be in America.

Chance: But blacks don’t want all of that mixed looking blood to escape from the black race. And, this why many blacks get angry when someone with black ancestry claims to be mixed and don’t want to be labeled black only. Fenty made his choice and secretively we all know the reasons but under the conditions the reasons are justified too some degree.

Former Mayor Marion Barry was a four term Mayor of Washington D.C. and it was a career of corruptions, high crime rate, increased HIV and AIDS among blacks, out of wedlock births increased, poor (lower) school test scores buy many black children, and other social ills. Fenty remembers this, and he remembers the corruption that Marion Barry and some of his black appointed offices holds got caught up in. I will say this, if the voters are not happy with Adrian Fenty they will be able to vote him out when his first term expires.

 We shall see how this mulatto elite situation plays itself out in the politics of Washington D.C., Fenty could do a lot of good we will watch. Time will reveal.

D.C. Mayor Fenty: Integrationist or Neo-Uncle Tom?

Black News Journal, Commentary, Robert N. Taylor, Posted: Jul 11, 2007

 

Editor’s note: It is difficult to determine whether Mayor Adrian Fenty’s appointments have generated widespread resentment within the African American community. While there is a wait-and-see attitude among some, others have been quite vocal in their criticism.

By In a city which is nearly 60 percent African American, Washington, D.C.’s newly elected Black Mayor Adrian Fenty has somehow managed to fill the top ten most powerful positions in his cabinet with five whites, three Asians, one Hispanic and just one black.

The above fact has been overshadowed by the controversy over his selection of Korean American Michelle Rhee to be chancellor of the city’s public schools. Rhee has minimal teaching experience, admits she has had “difficulty” dealing with black school children and acknowledges that students ran her out of the classroom when she taught briefly in a low-income neighborhood in Baltimore, Maryland. Amazingly, Fenty is able to stare directly into a camera and tell the citizens of the nation’s capital that Ms. Rhee was selected because she is “the best person for the job” of turning around the city’s troubled, overwhelmingly black public school system. If that is true, then it constitutes an incredibly damning indictment and slap in the face to the thousands of black educators and administrators throughout the nation.

Do Fenty’s actions in Washington, D.C. mean he is a new-style or neo-Uncle Tom showing deference to whites at the expense of blacks? I think not. But what it does represent is a socio-cultural “disease” which plagues many blacks. I call this mental affliction “extreme integration ideology.” Blacks holding this belief do not shuffle and bow like the Uncle Tom of old but deep inside their souls they actually believe that blacks cannot accomplish anything meaningful unless whites (and increasingly Asians) are involved.

As suggested above, this mental affliction is common among many ordinary black citizens as well as among some of our most prominent civil rights leaders. For example, there can now be little doubt that when it comes to public school education, much of our civil rights leadership spent far too much time trying to figure ways to just get black students in the same classrooms with white students rather than focusing on how best to establish programs and standards which would bring about the quality education of black youth.

Do not misunderstand me. I believe in a reasonably integrated society but at its root “extreme integration” is actually a form of black self-hatred because it tells our youth that we cannot accomplish anything meaningful or even solve our own problems unless whites are present and preferably in leadership. And while they will never admit it, blacks holding extreme integration ideology believe that whites (and increasingly Asians) are somehow superior to blacks. This appears to be Adrian Fenty’s problem. Sadly, he is not the only black disabled by this mental affliction. If you want to respond to a Robert N. Taylor commentary or express your views on any subject,

 


  1. “Mayor Adrian M. Fenty is the current Mayor of Washington D.C.
    has made some blacks very unhappy“. This is a sad statement Chance because it implies that some Black folks are unhappy with Mayor Adrian M. Fenty because they may have been incline to believe he would be bias to the black race. In addition it shows a lack of respect for him and in his choice of appointees. I think it was a smart move on the Mayors part to appoint such a diverse cabinet. This sends out a clear message to other minority groups that mulattos and mix race people are fair minded individuals. We give people a chance to prove themselves based upon their qualifications not their race. Blacks folks need to realize that ” Just because a person may look like one of you does not make them one of you“. If black folks want to tell who is black and who is not black then get rid of the ODR. This ODR not only gives a false identity to mulattos it also gives a false impression to the black community. When blacks let go of the ODR they will be able to recognize their own people. I wish the Mayor luck and success.

    @ Lois

    This is so true, the ODR keeps mulatto achievements tide up with black achievements, and the two groups are not the same. I wish Fenty success too, it is sad but blacks often need whites, mulattoes, and now Asians to be their supervisors. Blacks do not respect their fellow blacks highly and this is one of the reasons it is so hard for blacks to get along and cooperate with each other when crisis breaks out. Blacks view blacks in general as lower and this is why they will follow and obey a white leader faster than a black leader. Mulattoes are suffering because they are labeled black and suffer the same fate as blacks. Many mulattoes even act out the negative sub cultural behaviors of black America because they are raised and labeled black.

    The ODR (one drop blood rule) needs to go!!

  3. “Many mulattoes even act out the negative sub cultural behaviors of black America because they are raised and labeled black.

    mark bey: Chance dont even try it, in america when the term black is used it dosent not mean we are all have the exact same heritage. It refers to a group of people who have liveda/struggled and have a common history in this country. Just as the term arab dosent mean 1 race their are white as white arabs and then thier are black arabs.

    Just as their are african americans who are closer to white than to black.

    None of us made the ODR as you call it and your argument that blacks quite often need mulatoes or whites to govern them is so friggin ignorant.

    Your statement that many mulatoes are following behavior of African Americans smakes racism and elitism.

    Chance call yoursel whatever you want to my friend I could care less but why dont you keep in mind that some of the retarded behavior you see by blacks and mulatoes has something to do with our history of bieng degraded in this country.

    However I will admit that I agree with Fenty picking the best cabinet no matter what color they are it is time for black business people and politicians to act and conduct themselves in a proffesional manners.

    Lastly chance please remember that once you “mulatoes” are seperate you then become the smallest minority in this country and people like Fenty dont get elected.

    As far as you considering yourself a seperate race from blacks chance good riddance it is obvious to me after reading your material for over a year that you believe yourself to be supperior to black people who have darker skin or who are not mulatoes.

    Best wishes to you chance. Your starting to get really offensive with your eugenics stuff.

    My Response: Yes I understand how the term black is used in America meaning — that people share a common culture and history in America. The ODR (one drop rule) was invented by whites to purify their race of octoroons, quadroons, and mulattoes who had some black ancestry whether the black was visible or inviable in these types of people. In 1910 the state of Tennessee passed the one drop blood rule and made it law, then all the other states followed by 1930 all states had the one drop blood rule on the books. This forced mulattoes to be labeled black along with the black race, and every since then all types negative things have manifested among blacks and mulattoes. Example skin tone jealousy, colorism, black women who are darker feeling that lighter skinned women get more favor, dark and caramel skin blacks disliking and envying mulattoes light skin men, light skin men disliking darker and caramel skin men because they feel these types of black men oppress them by being rude, whites favoring light skin over darker and caramel skin, and many other problems. The ODR was forced upon mulattoes, mulattoes would have preferred to keep their own group culture separate from blacks and whites. This would have help lessen the colorism among blacks because when they see a mulatto they would just say he is a mixed race person, and not really black or white but both.

    Forcing mulattoes to be black and not forcing then to be white is really unfair, because mulattoes are both. Whites should have asked mulattoes do they want to be labeled black, and suffer even worse racism, in other words these silly white racists should have just let mulattoes alone, and let mulattoes choose their own destiny. The negative effects are seen among blacks today with colorism.

    I have had so many negative experiences with dark skin and caramel skin blacks because of my mulatto skin color, it is like they are punishing me for all of the evil that whites have caused. This negativity is unprovoked, the reality is that to some degree dark skin and caramel blacks are correct, and that is to say that mulattoes are not black people, they are mixed raced people and mixed with are white and other ethnicities. So therefore, let whites be whites, black be blacks, and mixed raced folks be mixed race. We can all still befriends, mulattoes share a genetic heritage with both blacks and whites so let us be friends. Blacks have many problems one of them is because all of the mixed race looking people are labeled black and this keeps the colorism going. It is silly to tell a dark skin black girl that Vanessa Williams and Mariah Carey are simply black women and that someday she will be able to look like them. These women are mixed raced to the point where calling them black only is silly, and it makes dark skin and caramel black girl feel below these types of women. Some of these girls grow up disliking how they look because they keep comparing themselves to mixed raced women.
    And, they should not do that because these women are mixed race.

    Mark bey said: Your statement that many mulatoes are following behavior of African Americans smakes racism and elitism.

    My Response: This is true, blacks make up the majority of men in the black race so you follow the law of the majority. But at the same time white racism has also assisted and played a major role in a lot of negative behaviors that blacks display. I am not pushing racism, like you implied I am speaking my feeling and opinions and there others who agree with me. These are just observations and potential solutions nothing more. As for elitism remember Mark it is called mulatto elite, blacks are the ones who started using the term mulatto elite and they got that expression from whites. It is blacks who make mulattoes elite in politics and governing the black race. Blacks as you see often will choose the lightest politician to to represent them, they are these that push the term mulatto elite. I say send mulattoes back to their group category and that will end the mulatto elate among blacks.

    Mark bey said: Lastly chance please remember that once you “mulatoes” are seperate you then become the smallest minority in this country and people like Fenty dont get elected.

    My Response: Mulattoes were always a minority in America there were always more blacks and whites than mulattoes. Also, I am talking about be separate so that we mulattoes can claim our heritage both black and white because that is what we are man!!!! We are not just black please understand that please. I am not ashamed of my white ancestry, and since I get mistreated by blacks for having white ancestry that is visible in my body I might as well claim it. Hispanics are mixed, and they claim their white, black, native Indian, and other ancestries but blacks and whites don’t try to force them to claim one racial ancestry only. Our own separate category would allow us to do what Senator Barack Obama, is doing he is liked by both many whites and blacks because he is bi racial (mulatto) and he does claim his white and black ancestry. If Barack Obama claim his blackness only he would not have a chance of being the president. Whites and blacks like him in general because he is a mulatto who seem to not be too black or too white in culture and behavior and he comes across as loving the white and black ancestries. Whites feel he will treat them good because of his white ancestry (mother) and blacks feel he will treat them good because of his black ancestry (father). Obama can claim mulatto and use it to his advantage with whites and blacks but I am not allowed to do the same. Yet, I am white and black too.

    Mark bey said: As far as you considering yourself a seperate race from blacks chance good riddance it is obvious to me after reading your material for over a year that you believe yourself to be supperior to black people who have darker skin or who are not mulatoes.

    My Response: Well what is wrong we are different, black is black, white is white, and mixed race (mulattoes) are mixed race no of the three are the same. Also, I don’t consider myself superior to darker skin blacks, why would I compare myself to dark skin blacks, they are their own group. I am a mulatto nothing more totally different so why compare each when we are genetically slightly different. I am not comparing myself to whites either they are whites, I am a mulatto different. I am both black and white.
    Caramel skin blacks are the in the truest since of the word light skin blacks not the mulattoes. In Africa when they say light skin black they are talking about a caramel skin black person, a mulatto in Africa is called a coloured or some other name depending on the African country. Why do blacks get so angry when me and others acknowledge that we accept our mixed ancestries. Why can’t we let people be what they are. I do not try to stop blacks from claiming anything, because I respect their right to freedom of choice. I black, I am white, I am the mulatto. God caused me to reincarnate as a mixed race person please respect that, I am simply a mixed raced man.

    Mulattoes like me and blacks we can still help each other and be allies, friends, family, intermarriages etc the only difference is that mulattoes are just in their own category the way it use to be nothing more.

    Remember Vin Diesel, Halle Berry, Tiger woods, Wentworth Miller, Lenny Kravitz, Jasmine Guy, Lisa Bonet, Gian Carlo Esposito, and many other openly accept there white and black ancestries. I have a right to do the same.

    I accept all of my ancestries, and reject none.

    Thanks Mark for your thought’s and good to hear from you again, you are welcomed here.

    it unquestionably time for the blacks to “walk on their own two”; the mulatto elite has fulfilled it’s “obligation” to our “black” side-we have won their legal right to pursue equality.

    Yes we have fulfilled our obligation to black America, we helped them and ourselves political, civil rights, economically, educationally, etc now it is time for us to claim our white and mixed race ancestry publicly. So just like we mixed race are viewed as black, we will claim white because we are mixed with white and be viewed as white. We will claim all of the other racial groups we are mixed with and will be considered mixed race. We mixed raced, mulattoes, FGM, MGM, and biracials are the cosmic race. We must unite al of our genetic ancestries into one future cosmic people. We are the future the mixed race the BEST.

    Take care, Kahlil and thanks for coming by and visit again.

    @ Kahlil,

    We mulattoes had better be a little careful, least people think that we are trying to say what is that light skin looking mulatta woman doing paticipating in a black nationalist panther group.

  10. Kahlil

    Perhaps, “Chancellor”, we’ve been a bit ‘TOO’ careful…No?

  11. Jenny

    Amen, my mulatto brothers, amen.

  12. I agree

    to: #11

    yes, we HAVE been a bit too careful. those days are over. instead of being “careful”, let’s just be “real”…

    it’s a photo of a mulatta woman tryin’ to fit in and obtain the approval of the blacks — back then it was to survive. not now. not any more!
