    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

    African-American activists urge Dems against chasing working-class whites


    BALTIMORE

    African American activists are issuing a terse warning to the Democratic Party: Don’t ignore us while pursuing the white working class voters who eluded the party in the 2016 elections ...

    African-American activists urge Dems against chasing working-class whites

    Democrats this week made a strong pitch for white working class voters. But African Americans, who have long been intensely loyal to the party, are concerned they’ll be taken for granted.

    With ‘Better Deal’ platform, Democrats chase white votes instead of proven coalitions
    New economic plan relies heavily on populist rhetoric designed to appeal to disaffected, working-class white voters

    ... Phillip Thompson, president of the NAACP’s Loudon County, Virginia chapter, was not impressed with the economic strategy recently released with much fanfare by Democratic leaders.
    Thompson expected to hear Democrats plot a course to rebuild the coalition that elected Barack Obama president in 2008; he wanted to hear specific proposals that would excite black voters, like himself, to more fully participate in upcoming elections, instead, Thompson heard an appeal to chase working-class white voters who fled the party last year and helped elevate Donald Trump to the White House ...

    Right now Farrakahn is the only one with a national leadership credentials. Unfortunately, he is too old to carry it

    The end of black politics, revisited

    Ten years ago last month, I wrote a long cover story for the New York Times Magazine titled: “Is Obama the End of Black Politics?” The central point of the essay, which featured dozens of black leaders and provoked no shortage of debate, was that...
    yahoo.com

    ...was that Barack Obama’s nomination in 2008 marked a turning point for African-Americans in our public life, from which there would be no going back.
    This isn’t just African-American voters overwhelming white ones in low-turnout primaries — these are candidates wielding crossover appeal that would have been unthinkable 20 years ago.

    ...They were at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s 48th annual legislative conference, where the three candidates were keynote panelists in their first public appearance together since winning their primaries.
