The 2014 Political Pimp Move

By Lucius Gantt

      With President Ba-rack Obama’s assistance, certain Democratic candidates have mastered the “Political Pimp Move”!

Now I know many readers of The Gantt Report don’t like for me to write anything bad about the Commander in Chief but those that truly know me know that I try to write the truth and I don’t care if national, state or local politicians like it or not!

With that said, if you desire, you can skip this column and go straight to the comics or funny pages.

The word pimp first appeared in English in 1607 in a play entitled Your Five Gallants. It is believed to have stemmed from the French infinitive pimper meaning to dress up elegantly and from the present participle pimpant meaning alluring in seductive dress. Pimp used as a verb, meaning to act as a pimp, first appeared in 1636 in a book called The Bashful Lover.  A pimp can also mean “a despicable person”.

Many people wrongfully describe pimps as people that take money from women but the truth of the matter is that a pimp will take money, or anything of value, from whomever he or she can.

African Americans are the deciding  factor in any close election because Blacks usually vote in blocks and non-Black voters are pretty much divided and will vote for a variety of candidates.

Instead of catering to their most loyal supporters, instead of patronizing businesses owned by your most loyal supporters, instead of speaking out strongly on issues of interest to your most loyal supporters and instead of giving your most loyal, voting supporters opportunities to participate in political purchasing transactions, the political party that African Americans love the most chose to pimp Black voters!

Can I prove it? Yes!

No matter how much love Black people show their political party of choice and the candidates that run for office under that party’s banner, Black people get screwed just like a two dollar wh*re on the bad side of town.

They take our endorsements, they take our volunteerism, they take our campaign contributions, they take our enthusiasm, they take our political love and what do we get for it…..absolutely nothing!

Now is the time, late in the 2014 campaign season, when politicians start showing up at Black churches. Politicians never go near a Black church, or any other Black community institution, until election time.

And when they get to church, they bring their lies, they bring the false promises and they bring their political con game that suggests politicians from one political party are different and are better than candidates from opposing political parties.

Malcolm X once suggested one party is composed of political wolves and the other is full of political foxes. A fox and a wolf are both canines and either party Black people choose to support they will still end up in the dog house!

Today, many Black voters are like dogs in a sense of the word. A dog oftentimes rummages around garbage cans and he’ll find something that looks good and smells good but is also not good for him. When the dog eats things that are not best for him usually he will throw the bad food up but soon the dumb dog becomes so mesmerized and infatuated with what looked good he will try to eat his own vomit.

Black voters are the same way. No matter how many times they have been lied to by politicians they love, no matter how many times they have been ignored, rejected, neglected, used, abused and taken advantage of by the political party that they love, just like the dog, Black voters continue to cast their ballots for candidates that literally make them sick!

In 2014, if Black people run to the polls to vote for candidates that hate Black people, that hate to spend money with Black people, hate to hire Black people and hate to speak strongly about Black issues, African American voters that vote for devils just because they are in a political party that you prefer are not only political punks and tricks, those kinds of Black voters are traitors to their race!

Now, quickly, what does Barack O-bama have to do with all of this? Well, the President is supposed to be the leader of the Democratic Party. In other words, if you control a political party, that party should do nothing that you don’t agree with.

Not only does the President agree with the way African Americans are treated by the political party they love the most. President Barack Obama is helping that party treat us with malcontent and disrespect!

Can I prove that, too? Yes, again!

If it is not party policy, why does every Democrat say President Obama’s name when courting Black voters. Someone told Democratic candidates to spend all campaign money with non-Blacks and someone told the candidates, to get Black votes, all you have to do is say “I support Obama”.

I did what I could to help President Obama win two presidential elections. What did I get from President Obama? I get at least ten emails a day from klansmen, neo-nazis and red-necked crackers begging me for money for white candidates to spend with white political vendors.

President Barack Obama decided to give every piece of Black data to every pale faced candidate he could give it to.

But he won’t give you data on how to reach Goldman-Sachs, Lehman Brothers of AIG insurers because they are white people and you are dumb Black voters.

No, Black candidates can’t get data about white campaign contributors or white voters but anybody Black that ever gave a dime to President Obama has his name, address, email, phone number and other information given to any sheet-wearer, swastika wearer or modern day overseer that asks President Obama’s political party for Black data.

To me, unauthorized use of Black personal data is like identity theft!

I’ve gone much too far in this week’s column so I’ll just end by saying we’ve been voting for the lesser of two evils for far too long.

In 2014, we need to vote for candidates that will vote for us, spend with us, respect us and want us.

The idea of pimps and politics should be discarded and trashed like the people that suggest such ideas! (Buy Gantt’s book “Beast Too: Dead Man Writing” in digital or paperback versions and contact Lucius at
