'Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
Who watches the Watchmen?
The biggest problem isn't going to be getting info. The biggest potential problem is what befalls ALL information gathering agencies, organizations. The group ends up getting info things it was not originally created for.
DuBois and Garvey.
It will start out doing what it was supposed to do, all agencies do but the people inside it will be tested. Okay, you exposed coons, agents and sellouts. Do you report Dr. Umar kicking with a 'conscious stripper'? Do you do deep dive on TBA, Tariq
, Dr. Boyce? You find out something like they owe taxes, is having an affair, is gay, has an old domestic abuse charge? Many of the things that we see going back and forth these days that were exposed between influencers. Do we put that on blast? If Tariq
is in charge of it, do we approve of him using it for info on Bey? Or the reverse?
The mission needs to be very clear. There needs to be some sort of oversight, transparency, or whatever. Generally speaking though, I like the idea and thought of something kinda similar. I'd like to have a black version of Vice or whatever and do a deep dive on certain things.
For example. Texas wanted to change history books to calling slaves 'foreign workers'. And we reposted articles and wrote 'Yo, that's f*cked up' and that was it. I want a black oriented site like Ebony, The Grio, The Root, whatever, to do a deeper dive. Which specific company made these books, who runs this company. Who specifically in the Texas Dept. of Education approved it or what group. Find out ALL the names and put them on the jumbotron in an article and fight to have them removed if they are in the government or that company blacklisted who wrote the books.
