    I'm just curious as to what black people expect a "good leader" would do to help the black race.

    I would think that because every great society has had leaders. They set the tone & pace of the people. If no one knows where they're going, they'll never get there.

    what is this question coming from?

    The folks that run the world and manipulate industry at the demise of human life don't ask those kind of questions.
    they simply foster leadership skills in thier young and work accordingly.

    Is there any ethnic group in this nation that does not have some sort of leadership looking out for the common good of the group, even though kept out of the limelight?

    Kept out of the limelight indeed. Where is the limelight? It's mainstream media. Where do the majority of black people get their info unfortunately? You got it mainstream media. So the mythical black leader would not be known by the black masses, never. The media promotes puppets and controversy, controversial is another word for idiot or insane in media language. So who do black people see when in search of the mythical black leader? Barrack Obama (puppet) Jesse Jackson (idiot) Louis Farrakhan (insane)

    It's time to grow up and realize the culture may be in need of an enema!

    That's my "BIG" opinion!

    No,,,, I said,,,,

    the leadership of other cultures such as the mMexican leadership that caused that day of absence in NYC a minute ago, the Korean, Bangladesh, and Yemeni leadership, are not in the limelite because they were allowed to keep thier culture,
    we simply need to regain ours,

    wassup with this enema stuff?
    eat more vegies

    What do you think our culture is dude? The enema stuff is just metaphorically speaking. It means the black race has adopted it's own self destructive culture fed to black people by white media and also by other black people. The enema reference means that the culture needs to flush out the garbage, get it?

    I feel and think we're a reflection of bad leaders because of our own low expectations of anybody who is an alleged or real one...

    I. e., we see them as buffers between us and white people, and/or too oftentimes of ourselves as merely past or present victims of whatever 'whitey/racism/the system' did or does to us...

    Instead victims don't get real props:

    Warriors and warrioresses do...

    Out of the midst of such folk come true leaders...

    Not spokespersons...

    Not surrogates for other folks petty self interests...

    Etc.

    From black face ministry to gangsta rap, the only reason white people emulated or mimic anything black folk originated is they could make money from it too...

    The rest came afterwards...

    I. e., let's see some of them as they are, not as they would have us to believe they are...
