    Would you support or help organize a National Black Solidarity Day. This day would be a complete shut down of all activities and stay at home day..
    The purpose is to show our solidarity as a people and to illustrate to America our strength and power. If we want equality and to change the way we are treated and viewed,we have to stand together as one to accomplish that. There is strength in numbers..United we stand brothers and sisters, but divided we fall. Folks have better get their heads out of their behinds, because no one concedes power without a fight.....

    Sister NN Queen: I would like to expand on your statement Bro. AI D...not only will our solidarity as a people illustrate to America our strength and power, but it will also be a testament to each other that we can act in a unified way. Many of us don't believe we can come together as a people to take a political or economic stand on any issues.

    Conscious, intentional and disciplined ACTION is what it will take. I would suggest, if this was to happen, that it be at a peak time in a month when businesses and the banking industry would feel its impact the most. When Black people get paid...hold on to your money for longer than 6 hours which is the timeframe that studies show how long it takes for AAs to spend our money. Far shorter time than any other race/ethnic group. Think about it, less than 24 hours whereas other groups hold on to their money for days and sometimes a whole month longer.

    I'm in . . .

    They said Hannibal would never conquer Rome ( he did)...There were slaves who said they would never be freed ( They were).They said there would never be an African American president either ( there were 7 before Obama ).....Nothing positive will ever happen when folks have a negative and self defeatist mentality from jump street brother James...

    The purpose ( since you asked ) is to show our solidarity as a people and to illustrate to America our strength and power. If we want equality and to change the way we are treated and viewed,we have to stand together as one to accomplish that.

    If the goal is to harm the business and banking industry, it must be noted that there are plenty of black people invested and a part of the business and banking industries; they will be harmed as well.
