Where is Black Political Leadership in America in 2017 and 2018?

According to the 2016 Census, there are 46.1 million Black people in the United States. This figure could be argued, and analyzed, but this is a starting point, there are 325 million people in America, and based on these numbers, Black folks make up about 14.9% of the country. In 2017 and beyond, the Black political leadership has a responsibility to operate with integrity and courage around an agreed Black Agenda that is disseminated through the Black media; getting out the Vote must be a pivotal piece of the plan, and Black political power must be restored to Black people in their communities ...

they need to stop selling out, and kissing a*s for empty promises. majority of people put individual gain above what their race can gain as a whole. sh*t that looked obvious to my eyes is completely overlooked by others, building a nation? who has the foresight, and the want to see his people succeed? who's willing to do whatever is necessary to put his race at the summit? is such a person even alive in this age? It can be done, but who is willing to work their a*s off to do it? I don't mind sweating, or bleeding for the family: but will my family join hands with me to complete such a task? we must seek, and respect each others views on this
