    Good drop, our GroupThink Project-Group assembly operates very similarly to the model of leadership Steve proposes, staying away from the "one" and adopting the group model.

    Cokey, may he rest in power, was a great researcher and good at connecting many dots
    and bringing to light things that otherwise many of us would not have known.
    Do I agree that the white financing of black leadership, as in an act which has and does
    take place, I'd say yes.

    Yea, didn't realize one was already posted on this. Video wasn't working when I tried to view it, but I see you updated the video with the one I linked to. So we are on the same page now.

    Ralph Ellison's, Invisible Man is about what he is speaking on. Whites Finance Black leadership. On of my favorite books. Timeless.

    The main character, whose name is never mentioned, graduates from college with the one goal of becoming involved in community activitism. He is almost immediately introduced to a club of white men who developes and assignes Black leaders. He's assigned to different Black communities according to what the white men, he reports to, have assed what the problem is...etc, etc.

    (Teaser- not spoil alert ☺️) Ond of my best reads.

    I haven't signed in in few days so I don't know exactly when you posted.
    Anyway, I don't disagree with the video. Just a generic response,

    Okay, but it wasn't the video I was inquiring about

    What made my response "generic"?
