The previous chapters revealed Afrolantica Legacies’ reliance on a conspiracy theory world view. In the second chapter’s Marxist parable of the Citadel, Derrick Bell imagined a conspiracy to allow the advancement of a handful of “lowlanders” in order to deceive the masses. In the third chapter Bell defends the antisemitic conspiracy theorist Louis Farrakhan and advances his own version of the “Jews control the economy and will run you out of business if they want to” conspiracy. And yesterday the excerpt from the fifth chapter showed Bell’s embrace of Robert L. Allen’s conspiracy theory that whites in America had effectively “colonized” the black community, installing fake black leaders who would actually sabotage black interests.
For the sixth Afrolantica Legacy Bell goes all in on imaginary conspiracies.
Bell titles his Critical Race Theory fiction “The Black Sedition Papers” and describes a plot to use a series of studies by various “race traitors” to blame black Americans for their proletariat class status:
“Under the ground rules, the papers are to focus on black pathology, describing it in detail and condemning those afflicted with it.”
In the essay’s conclusion, Bell imagines an academic friend investigating the Black Sedition Papers conspiracy and reporting back to him on a text suspected of being part of the evil white scheme. He then lays out the strategy I’ve employed in this analysis of Afrolantica Legacies.
“… the militant and conservative papers together will be used to convince a larger spectrum of the white population of the need for draconian measures against all blacks”
Note how Bell chooses to describe his own writings: militant.
Related: today in Barack Obama’s America the Associated Press reports a police car shot up near the site where Trayvon Martin attacked George Zimmerman:
Authorities say gunfire knocked out a window on a police cruiser parked near the townhome community where a black Florida teen was shot to death by a neighborhood watch volunteer.
Sanford police told Orlando television station WKMG the cruiser was found with at least two bullet holes Tuesday morning after witnesses reported hearing at least six gunshots. The car had been parked outside Bentley Elementary School for several weeks at the request of school officials.
And yesterday the Daily Caller reported that George Zimmerman’s family called on Attorney General Eric Holder to prosecute the New Black Panther Party:
The family member believes the reason Holder hasn’t made those arrests is because he, like the members of the New Black Panther Party, is black.
“I am writing you to ask you why, when the law of the land is crystal clear, is your office not arresting the New Black Panthers for hate crimes?” the family member wrote to Holder.
“The Zimmerman family is in hiding because of the threats that have been made against us, yet the DOJ has maintained an eerie silence on this matter. These threats are very public. If you haven’t been paying attention just do a Google search and you will find plenty. Since when can a group of people in the United States put a bounty on someone’s head, circulate Wanted posters publicly, and still be walking the streets?”
The New Black Panthers have issued ultimatums to the Sanford authorities, saying they want Zimmerman arrested “dead or alive.” They have placed a bounty on Zimmerman’s head, and have called for the building of an army of vigilantes to track him down and effect a citizen’s arrest.
Confession time: actually I’m just citing these stories and juxtaposing them with Bell’s writings because I’m part of a secret white supremacist conspiracy that wants to reinstate Jim Crow.
