#ObamaShutdown in Malcolm X Park?

zzmx

If you are anything like Regular Right Guy, and let’s just assume none of you will ever need that much help, then you are baffled by the loyalty most African Americans have for Barack H. Obama.

He is not an African American in any strict sense. He, if we can trust his own words, was born in Kenya and grew up in Indonesia, and he maybe knew three black people before he met Michelle, not including his brother George.

Not even a family whopper about marching with MLK in Selma. Every Freaking Body has at least one of those!

In other words, Barack is a walking contradiction who shares absolutely zip with the African American experience.

Wait. Is he even related to George, or is that made up as well? Ah, Je suis désolé! The entire black experience.

Now #ObamaShutdown has begrimed the cherished memory of Malcolm X.

That is probably Denzel Washington Malcolm X, not Malcolm X Malcolm X, but Black History Month.

Anyway…

Washington City Paper:

The weekly drum circle in Meridian Hill Park that has been a mainstay in the District since the civil rights era was disbanded by U.S. Park Police Sunday, since the park is federal land and supposed to be closed due to the government shutdown.

The drum circle started as normal at around 3:30 p.m and was scheduled to run until 9 p.m. At around 5:30 p.m., two Park Police officers approached the approximately 40 drummers and told them the park was closed and they had to leave. The park, nestled between the Adams Morgan, U Street NW, and Columbia Heights neighborhoods, was also filled with families, picnickers, and tightrope walkers.

“I don’t have an army to shut the park down, all I can do is tell people,” one of the officers told people as they questioned why the park had to shut down….

William Taft, an organizer of the percussion gathering who is listed as one of the holders of the permit that allows the drummers to assemble each week, said the Department of the Interior contacted him last week to tell him that because of the government shutdown, his permit would not be valid this weekend. (Taft, who has participated in the drum circle for decades, said everything went on without a hitch during the 1995 and 1996 shutdowns.) …

The drum circle has deep roots in the history of D.C.’s black residents: When slaves were emancipated in D.C. in 1862, some celebrated by dancing on Meridian Hill. According to drummers, the regular drum circles began in 1965 following the assassination of Malcolm X. Today, a large group of mostly African descendants from all over the world plays African rhythms (and other percussion styles) to celebrate their history in a place that is also known as Malcolm X Park.
