Tom Burrell's Brainwashing Diagnosis

The advertising pioneer compiled a list of 10 symptoms to look for in our leaders.


You know black leaders are brainwashed when ...


1) ... they fear that talking about racism may hamper their success.

2) ... they roll over at the slightest hint of retaliation.

3) ... they allow avowed enemies to define their agenda.

4) ... they quickly retreat from already weak positions.

5) ... they swiftly throw another black person under the bus to appear less racist.

6) ... they are more concerned about status among whites than defending black people.

7) ... they equalize racism, making it a black and white thing.

8) ... they legitimize, tolerate or excuse white groups, pundits or individuals who race-bait.
