    Count to who?

    Is the Black agenda the American Agenda when the statement that Malcolm made about us sitting at the table but not dining has not really changed in 50 years?

    Was anyone there talking about Black nationalism, and about us usingat least some of that 700 billion , to
    build and support our own farms,
    forest our own trees for lumber,
    and build our own tables, and make sure everyone not only has a plate but can get seconds if they want?

    There is one slogan the leftists put forth that I do agree with:

    Change yourselves and you're change the world!

    Ours is the worst sort of David vs. Goliath scenario, and the spectators are rooting for Goliath...

    It is what it is!

    Obama reached out to us--and now he dares to turn his back on us?

    Nobody plays me that cheap and that close!

    How about you too?

    Holla holla...

    The powers that be are into mind (shell) games with us...

    On the other hand, either our votes etc. count, or nobody's does!

    Indeed, one nation, etc., one set of rules, etc.

    :fyi:

    Democracy only worx if you force it to work. Its like that old car that wont crank or breaks down when you slow down, if you dont keep kicking and cursing it, it wont get you nowhere. J.E. Hoover said he would crush the black revolts and protest. Sadly he is smiling in his grave.

    First of all:

    I have peeked at a couple of those Tavis Smiley chatfests...

    Second of all:

    I have no issue or problem with folk sharing with us videos of activists and intellectuals kicking it with each other...

    Though wouldn't it be more on point/on time for them to have actually developed that new black agenda they're kicking it about, and then have town meetings about it all, wherever and whenever we're up to it, etc.?

    It is all merely a need take and the old issue/problem/etc. I have with black mass movements etc. is pretty obvious, i. e., the usual process leads to us remaining the foot soldiers, whereas the would be generals take us for granted...

    Not me!

    It's supposed to be about our empowerment too:

    And I kinda sorta doubt what the Tavis crew is about can or will bring that about...
