CLINTON, LEADERSHIP, ADORATION & BLACK FOLKS (A Few Reflections via Randall Robinson)
Bill Clinton He purchased our affection with gestures . . ."our support should not be so easily obtainable." (Randall Robinson)
Leadership "Leaders are assigned for the convenience of people who dominate you."
Adoration "The school teacher we don't respect like we used to--the wealthy bandit, we adore."Robinson's view on adoration is one that has serious implications, I think, not only in the world of politics, but also, increasingly, in the field of entertainment. But then again, I guess that really should come as no surprise. Historicially and across the board Americans appear to have a warped fascination with outlaws, gangsters and thugs.
