    The Black community has $800 BILLION DOLLARS AT ITS' DISPOSAL! We don't have a "money problem" in our community.....WE have a "CONSCIOUSNESS PROBLEM" in how to best make use of this money to leverage it for our best interests.

    WE need TO KEEP THIS MONEY INSIDE OF OUR COMMUNITY and use it to CREATE JOBS and provide opportunity to our people. (Hummmmm - where have I heard that before).

    We need to use this money to REDO OUR SCHOOLS!!!


    We need to cash our check on FRIDAY and spend this money with a Black man over the weekend.

    We need to protect the MEDIA MESSAGES that are transmitted into our community. The music that our children are listening to is casting a spirit of materialism and sexualization to our young people. If it is true that "we are what we eat" it is also true that "we think what we consume". (Hummmmm)

    We need to "remove the slave mentality" from our people and wake up the consciousness of our people.



    We are a strong people. We are the original people.



    We are attempting to assimilate into a society that is working against us. (Hummmmm)

    Brother, I couldn't agree more. Our community has this "trust" issue as well.

    We figure, "If I buy from the white man, i'm not getting cheated and my goods are authentic. But if I buy from a black person, the goods are probably fake, and he/she is probably ripping me off."

    This attitude in the black community has to stop asap.

    Great Post

    I first thought we were going on a roller coaster ride.

    I guess we are. Your post does point out a grave deficiency in how we work within the program.

    Would building up black owned banks be a beginning? There are less than fifty remaining in the United States.

    They can ( should ) lend to predominantly black business and give them bond funds they need to put up to bid for and qualify for large construction jobs.

    They can then turn those skills into building the communities while paying back the bonds by performing the labor for free.

    Offering those who can pay for material free labor and help fixing up their homes. Increasing the value.

    Keeping the Imminent domain laws ( about to happen, on the books, in the stars, in the pipeline, at hand, pending, forth coming, on the agenda practices of gentrification ) ( root word gentry - people of gentle birth, good breeding, or high social breeding - a load of crap ) from seizing whole communities.

    Those same institutions can lower their threshold on lending just enough to give all contributors ( members ) with a reasonable balance ( held as collateral if need be ) to borrow to buy a home or open a business.

    By using only those banks we help them stay in business. They grow and expand and no longer fall below the threshold and can fend off hostile take overs the law now allows.

    That would be buying into the black experience.

    Another thing we can ask those banks to do not participate in the World Bank funding bonds. Why should we build up Mexico one of the largest borrowers of those funds. The World Bank is bad. They forgive debt, and use those funds to buy weapons, keep other countries unstable, promote corruption, and do nothing to promote justice in the black communities. Besides we have no country. So it doesn't work for us anyway.

    Another money bend. Lobby the federal government to wave our federal tax liability for 100 years or longer. We need to grow and paying into a system that keeps funds out of our communities isn't something to participate and promote. That money too funds terrorism, hunger in Africa, by supplying weapons to rebels to fight against the people. Civil War is of the people against the government. Break the World Bank and this racist practice ends.

    Hire ourselves some lawyers. We need the court police to take us before the judge in all cases. Flood the courts if need be. If the politicians, mayors and other highly paid officials did their jobs the flood would subside. They keep our schools under funded. The Dept. Of Miseducation keep the teachers on pins and needles threatening to fire them for poor performance. Forcing the teachers to perform wrong by passing students to keep funding. Forcing good teachers to pay out of pocket for good material because they do want to enjoy what they teach and really like the job. They must. They don't get paid enough to tolerate THE NONSENSE OTHERWISE. On and on... but first we must control as this original post stated. Our Funds. Now how do you suppose we can do that? No one can tell me what bank to work with. No one can stop us from court filings. No one can keep us down but lack of participation.

    In Martin Luther King’s book. “ Where do we go from here: Chaos or Community? “

    ISBN 0-8070-0571-1 Beacon press, Boston 1967,

    - First published as a beacon paperback in 1968

    This is what he outlined as the issues. ( Paraphrased to a small degree to fit the now )

    Page 39

    First: Those in charge must maintain strict discipline and control.

    - So we need to change that. By using our black owned banks getting guarantees they will do as we wish. Get into the courts to plead our rights and brutality. Mental if not physical. Economic as well as social.

    King went on to state they wanted and knew they had to get us under complete submission. They had to get us to obey implicitly, for they knew we must never exercise our own judgment or free will in opposition to what they termed positive power.

    Second: They had to implant in us a consciousness of personal inferiority. This inferiority had to be extended to our past. They had to make us feel our African Ancestry was tainted and that our color was a hedge of degradation.

    – That has never been totally accepted and they fear this. Slaves died defying this lie. The third one backs this one up.

    Third: There had to be a training process to awe us with sense of power. To make us stand in fear.

    – Congress helped pull this one off. Police and judges helped pull this one off. No right to vote, own land, property, get married, gather, unite, or read. They owe us no taxes, like we aren’t going to the military anymore. No Representation, No Participation. This keeps us hated around the world and fosters that racism onto our other brothers and sisters across this globe. Our choice. It doesn’t make us non-patriotic. They are not patriotic to deny us the rights given under law. They are Hypocritical.

    Fourth: They had to convince us to buy into the plans of society they set up. Accepting slow moving laws or lack there of. No rights having to ( Die ) fight for what is written in their documents. They had to make us take an interest in their enterprise and accept his standards. We have to believe that what they do is good, true and beautiful.

    Like America is the land of Freedom. Home of the Brave. Flag waving, die in the army, and fight for justice to secure America’s interest against Communism. They are the terrorist. In sheets. In robes. In uniforms dressed as policeman. They are in Suits as businesses that care nothing about our welfare. Oh they give us funds to the United Negroe College Fund. Show up at NAACP ( another sell out group of educated men and woman that are afraid they will loose funding if they sue for Injustice. ) meetings to calm Jesse Jackson. They need us to accept this system without Question. Many have and believe heaven is their reward. It is but while here, promote the growth of Black Americans and help the church. It saved our Ancestors, delivered the bondsman of Egypt.

    ( They may have been us ) ... I refuse to believe we stayed behind and the Jewish community left. If they did and refused to take us with them. Shame on them. Lies are being told somewhere. Were we not there?

    God will fight his own battles, but thru us he operates.

    Fifth: The final blow. We have to accept our helplessness. They had to impress this deep into us. In many respects they were successful.

    - But like five fingers on a hand. All five had to smack us at one time.

    They had to create a dependence on them. Make it a habit. Now they talk about us as they do it. That is a dam shame.

    All five fingers, smacking us at once and in al cases would produce the perfect slave and break the slave.

    It didn’t work. So today new laws and practices are being used and created.

    BREAK LOOSE. WAKE UP … watch the Lemmings ( EUROPEAN RATS ) run. Take ( OVER ) back your money flow.

    Direct WORDS that came from A Great Man!

    From Dr. Martin Luther King's book. PAGE 38 direct quote:


    Although the Negro is still at the bottom of the economic ladder, his collective annual income is upwards of $30 billion. This gives him a considerable buying power that can make the difference between profit and loss in many businesses.

    Through the pooling of such resources and the development of habits of thrift and techniques of wise investment, the Negro will be doing his share to grapple with his problem of economic deprivation.

    If Black Power means the development of this kind of strength within the Negro community, then it is a quest for basic, necessary, legitimate power.


    Finally Black Power is a call to manhood.

    Brother HODEE, you also bring up an excellent point. This would also be a good start.

    A number of things can be done to help as progress socially and economically as a people, it just needs to happen on a larger scale then it is happening now.
