How Plantation Politics Aids and Spreads the Willie Lynch Syndrome
OPINION| By D.C. Jones, Contributor
What is Plantation Politics?
When African Americans, from different social-economic or educational backgrounds, [or in this case – Schools: McClain, Rogers, BTW, and Central] indiscriminately cast one another down, further than any racist white person could ever dream or imagine; when one black person hurts the progression of black people as a whole by engaging in counter productive activity.
Is engaging in plantation politics bad for the community?
Absolutely! When we participate in plantation politics, we become echo chambers of white supremacy. Negatively competing with one another only aids and perpetuates the horrific trauma the mass culture has horrifyingly bestowed on our race.
These types of social-psychological games are not only childish but extremely harmful to African-American women. Sadly, black women have historically been the-go-to for white and black-male-lash.
White-lash can be defined as, when white Americans feel so unheard, even while maintaining the status quo (i.e. power) as the majority, are willing to make irrational decisions, regardless of the adverse effects it may have on the minority, in efforts to make themselves feel legitimate and in control. Case-in-point the election of #45 (Donald the Dump!)
Brothers, please understand, this type of dangerous rhetoric only keeps the entire nation and all of its parts stagnant. Moreover, Black-male-lash becomes the echo chamber of this negative aspect of white supremacy for Africans in this region of the diaspora. Further, it personifies the internalized racism of Willie Lynch, the individual who concocts and disseminates this dangerous propaganda.

Why be an echo chamber?
Why engage in community self-degradation when structural racism continues to body slam little black girls in classrooms, locks away black victims into a prison-industrial complex by way of a purposefully failing public education system, all while police officers murder our brothers and sisters on Facebook live-feeds and broadcast it nationally via twenty-first century Willie Lynch style?
What’s alarming about this video is how the African-American male students chose not to intervene or speak out against the police brutality and the humiliation this black female student received – nor did the teacher…They are immune to this type of treatment of black woman, or they are so fearful of the white male police officer they chose to stay docile. The non-action from the Black students and black male teacher indicate signs of Willie Lynch. Regardless of the officer’s legal rights, the video indicates the young student didn’t provoke the police officer.

Why would a white male officer slam a little black girl down, and why would a black man attempt to character assassinate black women on a Facebook post in such degrading ways? It truly shows a lack of empathy for the black woman that both men have for the black women in general.

Oklahoma is ranked first in the nation for incarcerated African American women, and African American girls have the highest suspension rate in Oklahoma.
You prolong the healing process that every black woman so rightfully deserves. You chip away at the necessary strength that’s vital for her to raise the little black boy that she prays for twenty-four hours a day, hoping that someday he’ll find a black woman to treat with dignity and respect – because she never received that kind of love from a black man who had internalized racism.
So stop Victimizing Black Women in Social Media, and start empowering them!
“It is said that the strongest chain is no stronger than its weakest link.” – Booker T. Washington
So for every Black man that thinks it is okay to disrespect black women by pinning them against one another know this type of nonsense is heinous and hinders our ability to create strong links.

You have two options: Serve White Supremacy or serve the Black Nation?
1.) Continue being the echo chambers of white supremacy by degrading black women and further demonstrate you carry the demonic spirit of the Willie Lynch curse by victimizing black women in social media
2.) Become the black princes and kings of excellence our ancestors hoped and dreamt you’d become, and nation build!
There is still time left to rebuild and finish what our ancestors started so long ago on the Black Wall Street – the Black Jewel of the west.
