    "It historically seems to be in the lopsided best interest of the Welfare of America, i.e., the establishment, to destroy, co-opt, suppress or contain every independent, self-help economic empowerment movement that Blacks have ever given birth to in this country since the dark days of slavery: the National Ex-slave Mutual Relief, Bounty and Pension Association (first Reparations Movement led by Cassie House), National Negro Business League (economic self-sufficiency through enterprise, founded by Booker T Washington); the Universal Negro Improvement Association (self-help economic nationalism, founded by Marcus Garvey), Nation of Islam (economic self-sufficiency, founded by Wallace Fard Muhammad), Black Wall Street of Tulsa, Oklahoma (organized entrepreneurship building business enterprises), Black Panther Party (social justice and community economic development, founded by Huey Newton and Bobby Seale), National Black United Fund (self-help through community venture philanthropy, as originally founded by Walter Bremond); and Black United fund of New York (a unique and proven model of applied venture philanthropy for self-help economic development and empowerment, founded by Kermit Eady). Thus far, the destroyers have prevailed in the maintenance of the plantation status quo."
    -- Kermit Eady from his essay "America's Hypocrisy On Black Self-Help"
