People say that LBJ said something to that effect a lot. Not saying he didnt say it but I have never found the quote. Only a lot of claims.

I saw that information in the documentary movie, Hillary. And two days ago I heard it again from Reverend Owen in an interview on the news.

The leaders create a false sense of security behind their past presidents. It seems right around election time, gas prices drop and jobs automatically appear. But the reality is ignored in that within the year or so, these jobs disappear. They are mostly temporary contract jobs that last from 3 months to a year or so and barely offer minimum wage. so many people don't realize the process, but they end up much worse off for accepting these jobs and this kind of trick of POPULATION CONTROL

Tru'da! It's called falling for the okie-doke, which many have a hard
time coming to grips with (cognitive dissonance), where most whose glasses are to
rose-colored in their affinity for obama.

Uhhh, okay? Are these "brilliant black leaders" today political leaders? and if so, being that you are "seeing a lot" of them, can we get some names please?

Sure, Reverend Owen, Burgess Owen (football) said that "some of the leaders live in the past. It's not good for the race. Leaders either remain moving forward or they're not leaders." Ben Carson and Steve Harvey are stepping up to do something. Dr. King's son the 3rd, said he's coming in to work on poverty through Trump's office. There have been many who have been invited and made their way up to talk to the President elect and reported that that the results were good, that they are connecting up for results.

Obama had a jobs bill. Republicans in the senate refused to pass it.

Yes, and when did he originally bring the Jobs bill to congress? He did it in 2011, a year after the democrats lost the a majority in the House.

His initial focus should have been on job creation not healthcare, while he had a friendly majority in the House and Senate. He waited until the Republicans, who made it their mantra to obstruct him, had a majority in the House to try pushing the Jobs bill through.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
