    Hello Everyone,

    I know this is a problem that on the surface effecting everyone, but for our people has plague us for years.
    With the recent events, and the continue disinformation about the economy I came up with this conclusion:
    • At the rate we are going we will continue to be "victims".
    • We will continue to be the"consumer class" of America.
    • Our people will never be totally free.
    We don't own no real resource or have a sense of true"community".
    What I honestly see happening if we don't practice true group economics is a world in which we are at will to others for a job and never gain self-reliance .
    True, others are suffering, hold on pump your brakes, but not as long or severe as we have it.
    I am stating this not to anger,or "stir up the beehive" but to bring up solutions that already been expressed and stated.

    I believe if we adhere to some of these solution we can re-build and restore our people.
    We need more businesses,and let economics be the foundation for the re-building process.
    I am not promoting or saying that it will happen quickly, but with all things it will take some time.
    The key word here is we need to start group economics without harm to your family well-being.


    It sad but at the same time funny, that we only have 5 black owned company? to every other group in this country have all their businesses setup in our neighborhoods not community.

    As a race/ethnic group do you think our race is not motivated or have become tired of "fighting" for so many years?

    I think it is a combination of both, you have some that's not motivated and another who just gave up on the idea.

    Based on my observations, it seems like the blacks that are more than capable, have become very comfortable. Meaning, many blacks have attained well paying jobs and advanced degrees. They're living "high on the hog" now. Why rock the boat?

    I also think blacks place to much energy on social justice as opposed to economic justice. East Indians, Jews, Asians--they pretty much take what they want. They focused on creating economically strong communities FIRST. That brings respect and attention. Than and only than do they focus on social justice. They have the collective economic clout as a group to demand laws and policies be written to benefit their communities.

    It seems blacks are still stuck using a 1940's playbook.

    Your thoughts?

    Welcome to Destee.com Ronnie J, and congratulations on becoming a Premium Member so quickly.

    But those African Americans more capable, yet comfortable, when compared to the vast majority of Blacks, are only a drop in the bucket, out of about 40 million. Which explains why the majority of us, trapped in systemic and structural racism, are chiefly concerned with correcting social injustices, in order to be able to achieve economic justice.

    I almost sure it's more than a drop in the bucket. Based on my researching and study of economics:

    Sorry Brother Clyde but fortunately I wasn't raised to see myself being "stuck nor trapped" in a system of injustice and racism. Am I aware of it's existence? Yes. DO I think it has any bearing on my personal and professional success? It could but I'm no more concerned about that than I am about the weather in the North Pole.

    Do I think many blacks go in search of and seek out situations in which they can liberally scream racism? Yes.

    As it relates to your "drop in the bucket" remarks, I must quote WEB Dubois:

    "The Negro race, like all races, is going to be saved by its exceptional men. The problem of education, then, among Negroes must first of all deal with the Talented Tenth; it is the problem of developing the Best of this race that they may guide the Mass away from the contamination and death of the Worst.”

    In closing, let's agree to disagree. :0)

    Its not that easy to agree to disagree Ronnie J, with an argument you've made that is more personal than reflective of the larger population and huge scale of disenfranchisement suffered by most Blacks in America. However, if you desire to stop the conversation we are having, there is no requirement for you to reply back.

    But aren't these your words Ronnie J?

    Above, you seem to be repudiating the so-called Talented Tenth for not guiding the Masses away from the contamination and death of the Worst. To say the least, your logic and argument is hard to follow.


    Here's a more accurate and better viewpoint concerning the drop in the bucket comment I made:


    So Middle Class could safely be considered above $35K and below $100K annual income levels, which is 43% of American Households. The Black alone households total 14.7 million. Of that, approximately 38.4% are in the middle class, with earnings between $35K – $100K annually.
