just sayin……we lack the organizational cohesiveness to really boycott
You are 1000% right.
The only thing that was done here of any size was a prayer meeting of about 100 people. There is a lot of black churches here but they really don't get involved in anything.
If only we would be responsible for one person (ourselves)....to commit to doing our part. It could be done. We as individuals can make a difference. Share w/family and friends and maybe they will follow. But let US begin. We've got to start somewhere. I've already got some of my family on board and they're talking to there friend and extended families

what does organizational cohesiveness mean?
Organizational cohesiveness... or someone enough black people respect to send out the call (think Farrakhan with the Million Man March)?
The desire to "do something" is all over the black communities of America.
Organizational cohesiveness is achieved when all members of the organization have reached the point where they are working closely together as a single unit toward the accomplishment of mutual goals and objectives without regard to personal agendas and attitudes.
By establishing trust leaders take a diverse collection of individuals and blend them into an efficient working unit. When this occurs, and leaders have built and are nurturing organizational cohesiveness, they will have accomplished their primary goals. This is a most satisfying and beneficial position for leaders to be in.
During the '80s there were coalitions and organizations, as well as individuals outside of organization which were part of a cultural boycott against banks and other institutions which did business with the South African regime. The major tactic was divestment. Divestment actions resulted in millions of dollars of lost revenue for the South African government.
There can be no organization cohesion or cohesiveness devoid of organization and organizational unity. In the absence of organized action, the result is soloist, which is individual action devoid of organizational structure. Organizational cohesiveness requires effective leadership. The problem here is not simply a lack of organization or a lack of leadership, but a lack or deficiency of effective leadership.
Is Black Leadership really dead? That is the argument of this article.
A follow up opinion. Black leadership has changed, while many of us are still struck on outdated leadership models.
However, if we do take older or previous leadership models, they developed within an organizational framework.
If we are not working within an organizational framework, don't blame that on hip hop!
sorry, i blame everything on hip hop…..
