Farrakhan Says Black People Must Begin to Invest their Money

This week, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan spoke to thousands on the annual “Savior’s Day” in Chicago.  The storied leader, who is now 79-years old, talked about the state and direction of black America, and what must be done for the black community to prosper.   Much of the conversation centered around investing, borrowing, lending, saving and all the other things that make a capitalist society tick.

Farrakhan also spoke about the elephant in the room, Barack Obama, in a way that was both honest and diplomatic:

“Even though one of our own has reached the highest pinnacle of the American political system, his presence has not, cannot and will not solve our problems,” Farrakhan said.

The  minister spoke to the importance of economic self-sufficiency as a necessity for dealing with the dismal economic climate being faced by the African American community.  The black unemployment rate is nearly double that of whites, and black family wealth has been absolutely obliterated by the recession.  Nearly every other group has recovered from the recession, except for the black community.  Corporations recovered within months and white unemployment isn’t all that bad,  but black unemployment is atrocious, and black men are in the middle of a persistent version of the Great Depression.

Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam (NOI) control a great deal of farmland in various parts of the country and have also served as a powerful model of economic empowerment.  I doubt that the black unemployment rate has heavily impacted the NOI, since they are very good at making their own money.   The freedom one feels when he/she is able to find their own resources is indescribable, and it’s easier to sleep at night when you’re not worried about trying to convince your oppressors to pay your bills.

I met with Minister Farrakhan two months ago in a private conversation that lasted for three hours.   One of the themes that came up was the importance of embracing economic empowerment and access to resources as a way to short-circuit the violence occurring in Chicago.  The young men killing each other in the street are not animals.  Many of them simply need opportunities.  A man who has nothing to live for quickly becomes a danger to us all.

Additionally, Farrakhan and I spoke about how even highly-educated African Americans (i.e. scholars like myself) find ourselves frustrated, abused, marginalized and controlled by institutions that were not designed with our best interests at heart.  When I came to Syracuse University, my department hadn’t hired or promoted a black person in 100 years of operating history (perhaps they felt that every black person on earth was unqualified for the job).   So, there I was, with no mentorship, no support, and a group of colleagues who were openly hostile  and disrespectful toward my advocacy in the black community.  I felt surrounded, frustrated and at risk of seeing my years of hard work go to waste.

The only salvation I had in the midst of such dire circumstances was to learn to start my own business.  I invested nearly all of my money into things that would free me from the economic plantation. I built an entrepreneurial dream that would allow my academic talents to be harnessed and channeled toward my community, instead of allowing them to be hijacked and sold to the highest bidder.  Once I achieved economic self-sufficiency, I began to know what it means to be truly free.  That is also when I learned what it means to be a scholar.

My point here is that we need a REVOLUTION.  This has to be a revolution of the mind as it pertains to what we do with the trillion-plus dollars in purchasing power controlled by the African American community.  Every black person must learn how to start their own business as a matter of economic survival, even if you are not a full-time entrepreneur.  Rather than teaching our children to be borrowers, spenders and consumers, we must teach them to become investors, savers and producers.  This is the only way to overcome the massive black unemployment problem in America, and it is the only path to true spiritual freedom in a society where money will always be king.

The civil rights movement was political, with many of these gains being rolled back on a second’s notice.  The next step of this movement must be almost entirely economic, where we both embrace the power of money, but also seek to understand how this power can be used to generate meaningful change.  Wealth doesn’t exist so you can buy extra jewelry, new cars and silly material items (although some of that is OK).  It exists so you can build communities, strengthen families and elevate future generations.

For those who don’t agree with everything Farrakhan says, I encourage you to remember that we all agree that we must provide for our families.   Most of us also agree that something has got to change with regard to how we respond to black economic challenges.  This month, Min. Farrakhan and I are going to gather for a public event at The University of Illinois at Chicago forum (Saturday, 3/30 at 5 pm CST) to further discuss these matters.  Everyone is invited and it’s free to the public.

New paradigms must be embraced and we must begin to fully understand the power of economic literacy, financial empowerment and various forms of self-sufficiency.  Self-sufficiency doesn’t mean that you’re necessarily walking away from integration….it only means that you’re renegotiating the terms.

  2. I definitely agree, but there is one problem here:

    We are definitely divided by the perverted catholic…Blacks will continue to shop and spend money with any business that is not Black owned…Chinese restaurants are ot in hood by accident and Black folks are making them rich, while they continue to employ no one from the neighborhood’s in which they do business and the same goes for other races with businesses in the hood…

    We must learn to save our money, and spend it on things that we need, not what we want…

    We must cater to each other, and exclude all other’s until we reach our goal financially and socially…

    We must enforce that our children learn to read and write and at high level, and contiue with their education…

    If we stay together as a race, we can do a lot to improve on our own situation, but we must remember that the perverted catholic will be watching, and will attempt to accuse of all types of crimes…

    But to me, this is all a dream because you can a Black man or woman to bring the rest of us down…

    • That is because the markets are overly-saturated.

      We’ve got too many black folks out here trying to specialize in readily-available body butters and handmade soaps and tertiary products that are easily picked up in a local grocery store or pharmacy, and not enough who have a vested interest in JOB CREATION.

      Malls, gas stations, grocery stores, the places where we shop and buy everyday necessities, not just luxury items (luxury notwithstanding) and we should be conglomerated and concentrated in high unemployment areas with corporate entities that feed not greed, and not all of these one-piece tossed all over heaven and earth one-man businesses with “stuff” piled on flat tables like we live in a Forever Flea Market.

      It’s too easy to get the things you need on the next trip to the store that is owned by everybody BUT black folks, instead of ordering online or bypassing all of the stores to get to a specialized Flea Market filled with “black” businesses.

      Why DON’T we own these markets and stores and have an organized way of selling all of the things we need and profiting from them, too?

      At least white folks do that much right.

      • ‘Some’ of us are teaching our children that President Obama needs to keep coming over here sitting in meetings about the black economy instead of getting off our butts doing something about it.

        He’s been President for more than four years now and we’re STILL griping about the same stuff we’ve been griping about since before he was even born in the early 60s?

        We really need to get a grip on our FOLLOW THROUGH, even though I am still young enough to remember segregation and “southern justice” and lynchings myself.

        We DO NOT have a real excuse for being in this predicament in 2013 and it has nothing to do with Obama being elected as second black president behind Bill Clinton.

  4. Wow, the Nation of Islam has been preaching this message for years. Even before the big split they were always self sufficient. It’s just a shame that black people in general haven’t taken their message to heart and worked on their own financial freedom. We’ve been running in circles for too many years. I hope and pray that we can FINALLY see that no body is going to do for us what we can and should do for ourselves. There are millions of black and African people across the globe that we could and should be trading with, working with and buying and selling to. If we only traded amongst our own people we (as a people) could be financially wealthy. Let us put down the self-hate, truly educate ourselves and work together for the betterment of all black and African people.

    • Soulshadow55: For several years my dream was to do business in Africa. Yes, the ventures were undertaken to purchase land to farm, cows, chicken farm setup. Many attempts doing business with my people from Nigeria, Ghana, and Sierra Leone. Needless to say, all was in vain. Money invested and to this day no return.

      You can’t be financially wealthy when you can’t trust anyone to do business with you nor for you unless you are in plain sight to view every transaction.

      Never again will I invest with anyone, including in the U.S. That was a disaster as well.

      So much for honesty and trust. Where is the integrity here?

  5. Yes, we must open businesses and invest in ourselves – The Minister is correct. However, I remember before integration, Black folks all lived in their own communities and they had their own Black businesses in their neighborhoods. Rarely did anyone need to go outside the neighborhood for anything. After integration – White got Right – and Blacks started shopping in, and supporting, these white owned businesses. That is what we have been faced with for all these years. Throw in “planned gentrification” and you find a tons of reasons why we are in the condition we’re in. We need to acknowledge, legitimize, and support our Brothers and Sisters who have the taken entrepreneurial steps. Then and only then will things change.

  6. Black men and women are unintelligent consumers. The market society is devouring our scant resources thereby making us poorer and unhealthier. We buy so much stuff that does not enhance our wellbeing: expensive clothing, foods and drinks and types of entertainment and mock spirituals pursuits that might make us feel good but degrade our innovative talents. We put everything on the credit card and pay back minimums so we are always in debt. But it’s an economic conundrum because we help to keep our brothers and sisters in low-paid service jobs. And so it goes.

  8. I have been saying this all along, instead of blowing money on the fancy cars or new cars for that matter, save and invest. Learn to pay yourself first. Learn to depend on yourself and not others. Learn to put on that one credit card what you can completely pay off when the bill comes in. Learn to budget yourself. Stop trying to impress the family and your neighbors with purchasing what you really cannot afford and teach your children the same thing. Take them to the bank and teach them to pay themselves by saving $5.00 of that $10.00 that granny, auntie, mom, dad whomever gave them for their birthday or Christmas,etc. Yes, there are those that cannot afford to save that much but try opening a savings account and if you can only apply 5 or 10 dollars each week that’s fine, just leave it there, let it draw interest. What he said about our President was also true, he is only one person and he has to make rules that apply to everyone whereas you are one person and have only yoursef and your family to take care of. Our Great grandparents did it, what is our problem? We have so much more opportunity than they had. We need to stop having babies we cannot afford, young men need to learn how to work and above everything, we need to get as much education as we can before THINKING about having babies because it comes down to no education, no money! Don’t you get tired of waiting on those food stamps and checks each month??

  9. I kind of agree with Minister Farrakhan. I think Republicans caused African-American fatherless families. Republicans made sure Black males were denied jobs, bullied by police and republican appointed judges. Blacks were denied education – Remember George Wallace of Al. Black males found themselves cornered by Republicans even when not in prison. This has emasculated black males and depended upon Black females. As men, they cannot stand that. They run away from their families. So don’t blame Black males for fatherless homes. Blame republicans. This however has to change now. You heard Rush today whining things are changing on him too fast. His Radio show is losing money – and will soon die. FoxNews is already dying. Those were agencies encouraging republicans continue to mistreat Blacks males.

  11. Instead of stating the obvious, lets give some suggestions to help eachother/ourselves.
    1. For better health, we should stop eating white rice and bread and drinking sodas.
    2. We should calculate our bills and save more and spend less. Only buy what you need.

  12. That’s the ticket! We should start doing instead of talking so darn much. To make it in this life, people only need 4 essential things: Food, shelter, clothing and medical. Everything else are wants. Those 4 elements is the way to construct what a business should entail. With those 4 elements, there’s a business idea. Things people want is another business idea and build from there.

    I’m in the process of starting my own business in the Food Industry, only because I’m tired of working for white folks, I don’t like taking orders from no one who thinks they own you and I rather be doing what I like to do. With that said, I plan on hiring a lot of black people to do it. I want to be a part of the, “Job Creators”.

    If we keep on bashing each other, we’ll never get anything done. I love my black people and I truly hate it when they sell themselves and other blacks short. Blacks can do better than that and doing so, we can prevail. No one said that you couldn’t own your own business or make your own way.

    As I read a post on here about blacks losing their way, that let me know that there are some hopeless and weak ass individuals in the race. That person needs to speak for themself. Don’t put all blacks in your pity party category. There’s a reason why some black make and some don’t; they stop believing in themselves. Well, not me and you shouldn’t either. Keep your chin up and do your part.

    If we want to make a difference, then we “must” stand up to violence with some of them ignorant black folks that wants to do us law abiding blacks folks harm. We must take them and educate them to be productive members of society and let them know that we love them. I’ll be damned if I leave anyone of my people behind.

    We can start any business we want to start. Get educated on starting a business and best believe that Blacks can do anything they want to do. Some blacks should stay clear away from the ignorant stereotypes that make us dislike who we are. The power of suggestion is mighty. Don’t give into such bullsh*t. Don’t let society ignorance brainwash you into believing you’re not sh*t. You learn by doing…so do it! Stop talking about it and just DO IT.

    As I said before, I’m in the process of starting my own business. I don’t care if it kills me. I will give it my all and run with it. I AM MORE THAN JUST A COLOR AND I AM NOT AFRAID OF ANYTHING!

    Now go and do what you know you can do and don’t look back!

      • ISLANDGIRL:

        I love you for this reply. Your idea of a Reception Hall is a great one. I am happy for you. I love it when I see black businesses erected. I patronize black businesses in and out of my area. I love to see their faces as I walk through the doors of their establishments, they smile and greet me; a reminder that customer service goes both way.

        Reception Halls do really well and there are a number of things you can do with space. Go with your vision and don’t ever look back. I know you will succeed. Never be afraid to ask for help because help is always available.

        The key to making it is in your “hands”. It’s always been there; one just have to “grab” the shovel, break new ground, build it and they will come.

        I love my black people especially when they love themselves because when you can love yourself, then you can love others. That’s what it’s all about. There’s nothing we cannot do together. I’m willing to take risk no matter what the outcome. If you fall, get up and try again.

        Love always.

  13. @Reneegede – Here’s the problem with your logic. Those products are mixed with other chemicals and unable to pronounce ingredients. I used to sell shea butter. Blacks would not buy from me, they preferred to buy from YT.

    My biggest customers were strippers. When my mother was dying from cancer and I quit my job to take care of her. I made more than enough money from strippers to take care of both households.

    So don’t knock body butters if it pays your bills and keep a roof over yours and your family’s head.

  14. @soulshadow55 – technically your right. I grew up in the NOI when the late Elijah Muhammad was living. My mother purchased all of our food products and other dry goods from Muslim owned businesses.

    When Prophet Muhammad died and the NOI went bankrupt there were our foundation for black owned commerce.

    If there is a Black owned Muslim grocery store I will be honored to purchase my food from them, no questions asked.

  17. Here is the problems, first of all, why do we need someone to lead us? I know of no other race who are talking about someone leading them? Here is the sad part, we are too stupid to know that a president is for all people. My parents, sisters, brohters and realtivies have never needed someone to lead us. Do we invest? yes. Do we own poverty and a few farms, YES, YES! How do you think we got there? We didn’t wait around for Mr. Charlie to give us something. We took advantage of what was out there and made it work for us. We are teaching our younger generation to do the same. Stop judging others by yourself. There are million of us who are doing well. Two of my brothers are on the trail teaching young men to invest. Do they come to the training which is free. NO! Message: get off your butts and stop waiting for superman, he ain’t coming. A fool can be led anywhere.

    Believe what you will. Louis Farrakhan is slinging a mountain of BS. Few if any Republican Party elected officials hold office in the Black community. The Democratic Party has been large and in charge for decades in most any area where the voter are predominately black.

    Since the Democratic Party has been large and in charge, there are more blacks on “welfare/food stamps”, more fatherless black families, more black men, women, and children dependent of government social programs, etc., etc.

    Furthermore, for decades dysfunctional university educated black social workers and foster parents have contributed to the breakup of the black family to pay down on mortgages, etc., etc., at the expense of the black structure, none of this being attributed or the fault of the Republican Party.

    Malcolm X greatest legacy was his new calling of starting an entirely new organization with the mission to hold elected officials, public servants, accountable to the Constitution, the laws on the books, and advising black men and women to use the right vote to make the system work for the benefit of U.S. born black men and women.

    The Moynihan Report: Chapter II. The Negro American Family still holds validity, and the Democratic Party through inept black leaders have contributed to the unwarranted break up of the traditional black family structure for profit.

    Furthermore, for decades dysfunctional university educated black social workers and foster parents have contributed to the breakup of the black family to pay down on mortgages, etc., etc., at the expense of the black family structure, none of this being attributed or the fault of the Republican Party.

  23. “I personally witnessed firsthand how our so-called Black leaders and their people take advantage of Blacks. Approximately 6 months ago, I paid top dollar for a ticket to hear one of our so-called Black leaders speak. He travels around the U.S. talking, and he also travels to Black countries.

    This leader’s event advertised that the people who paid top dollar would receive three gifts, and would be seated near the front. I paid at the door, and asked about these gifts and seats just to make sure I had this information correct, even though I read about the gifts on the web. I was told by the woman in the booth that it was true. After I handed her the money, I asked for the gifts, and she said “Oh, you can get that inside”. She told me to show the host my ticket.

    Well, that was a lie. When I got inside, I showed the host my ticket and she said that she did not know anything about any gifts. She then went around asking other workers, and they had not heard anything about any gifts. I even asked the woman who seated me and she had never heard of any gifts. As far as front seats where concerned, people were being sent to the back because the worker’s friends had held seats.

    I left without what I was promised, I also noticed that other top ticket payers did not have gifts either.

    I could not get this out of my mind. Those negroes had the nerve to advertise these gifts, and they lied. That is called “False Advertising”. Therefore, I called their headquarters and complained, and I was told that I would be mailed a “book”, which is not what was promised.

    This is what I am talking about. Because this event was attended by 100% Blacks, our so-called Black leaders feel like they can just lie to us and take advantage of us. I will never attend another one of these so-called “Black folks only” conferences again.

    I recommend that Black people read literature on the web about how to start a business, and visit their libraries to learn about how to start a business. Invest your money yourself, and don’t trust these hustlers.” -Patricia Gillespie McAllister ·

  24. Source Thread: “Farrakhan Says Black People Must Begin to Invest their Money” by Dr. Boyce Watkins

    Selected excerpt:

    “……The minister spoke to the importance of economic self-sufficiency as a necessity for dealing with the dismal economic climate being faced by the African American community. The black unemployment rate is nearly double that of whites, and black family wealth has been absolutely obliterated by the recession. Nearly every other group has recovered from the recession, except for the black community. Corporations recovered within months and white unemployment isn’t all that bad, but black unemployment is atrocious, and black men are in the middle of a persistent version of the Great Depression.” by Dr. Boyce Watkins

    NOI Minister Louis Farrakhan left out the reality that Hispanics (MALDEF), Koreans, Caucasian, Jewish lawyers, elected officials, university graduates, including illegal aliens, etc., etc., do a much better job of competently serving or representing their respective communities or constituencies, than black elected officials, black college graduates, black lawyers, the NAACP, etc., do to serve U.S. born descendants of slavery.

    “LAUSD to pay Miramonte victims $30 million” by Stephen Ceasar, Richard Winton and Teresa Watanabe, Los Angeles Times, March 12, 2013.

    ……more likely 30 Million and climbing, because other civil claims are in progress for addition mega-buck claims for damages.

    The student victims are Hispanic, many of them being illegal aliens or anchor babies of illegal aliens, and their primary attorney(s) is Hispanic.

    YouTube: “Interview with Terry Anderson, Uploaded by crowdifornia, Jun 10, 2009

    YouTube: “Interview with Terry Anderson, Part 2” Uploaded by crowdifornia, Jun 10, 2009

    Unlike President Barack Obama, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, U.S. born black lawyers, far too many deceitful/treasonous black elected officials, the “worthless” NAACP, pseudo and other so called black civil rights organizations that betray the black community daily……..

    ……Hispanic lawyers, Hispanic elected officials, Hispanic organizations such as MALDEF and LA RAZA, including Hispanic illegal aliens take advantage of any and every opportunity to file a claim against a government agency for violating their Constitutional/property rights, to acquire assets to benefit their community or culture, etc., etc.

    Instead of using “MLK Marching tactics that won’t bring monetary redress, much, much less that fruitful activity that commonly takes place in situations where blacks are so victimized”, Hispanic organizations and individuals use the tools of government, truly exercise his, her, and/or their Constitution rights, have lawyers and elected officials who assist them in any civil tort/Constitutional grievance with a truly factual basis that can be proven in court, to sue for and win megabuck out of court settlements, actual court settlements, assists in lawfully acquiring assets to enable their people to move up from poverty, and to hold a wealthy agency (LAUSD) financially accountable for the actions of its rogue and criminal teachers.

    “Supreme Court rejects damages for innocent man who spent 14 years on death row” In a 5-4 ruling, justices overturn a jury verdict awarding $14 million to John Thompson, who had sued then-New Orleans Dist. Atty. Harry Connick Sr. because prosecutors hid a blood test that would have proved his innocence in a murder case.” By David G. Savage, Washington Bureau, March 30, 2011, Los Angeles Times

    In contrast, more so than not, elected black leaders, black civil lawyers make excuses to do nothing, have contempt for the Constitution, don’t use the Constitution to serve black people, are not competent at all, or use games of deceit to betray blacks who have a legitimate grievance, bend over backwards to serve anyone but U.S. born blacks, which keeps U.S. born blacks in poverty, and unrepresented

    Economic self-sufficiency and competent representation are just too important to eliminate one in favor of the other.

    In the U.S., without competent representation (elected representative, lawyer, or other form of representation), you won’t continue to hold on to, or keep the economic resources that you have lawfully acquired. Lack of competent representation will make it easier for agents and officials of government, a private business entity, or a private citizen to commit a criminal or unethical act to infringe upon your property rights. This can mean or the end result can enable the unlawful perpetrators to get away with taking your assets away from you, or violate your Constitutional rights, with impunity.

    Without an opportunity to become gainfully employed, or to lawfully acquire other assets through investment, free enterprise, etc., you will be overly dependent on government for your survival, and in some instances, out of desperation with no way out from being in poverty, some people will commit a criminal act to acquire the necessities of life, such as food, clothing, and shelter.

The woman, Wanetta Gibson, who made the false claim of rape against Brian Banks is black. “As his day in court approached, Brian says that his lawyer feared that he wouldn’t get a fair trial, based on his age, size & race. So she, an African-American herself, convinced Brian to plead no contest to a crime he insisted he didn’t commit.”. -Attorney Elizabeth Harris should be barred from practicing law.

        Source: “Will Smith, Jesse Jackson, Chris Rock Support Dr. Boyce Watkins and Russell Simmons’ Campaign Against Mass Incarceration”.
        Selected comment:

        “The problem with MASS-INCARCERATION is not the USA JUST_US system…

        The problem is with Black people; as the old saying goes, ignorance of the law is no excuse…

        When you nine (9) out of ten (10) Blacks taking plea deals, and pleading guilty because of their ignorance, then there is nothing you can do about that…

        You go to any city in America, and Black folks will tell you, you better take that deal, these white folks don’t play here…and this is all too common among Blacks…

        1) Never give up your right to “REMAIN SILENT”…

        2) Never give up your right to a “SPEEDY TRIAL”…

        These are the most common rights we give up as a whole…I have been charged with every crime under the SUN, just for being Black…held in jail with a high bond for months waiting to go to trial…put in cells with thugs, and had to fight daily, because the people think that I will plea guilty to their erroneous charges…

        NEVER, to strong for that, my mind is not week…

        You have Black court appointed attorneys convincing their clients to plea guilty, instead of the attorney doing their job to investigate a case; I guess it is a lot easier to get $30,000.00 to convince your own race to plea guilty, then to have to work for the money and help convince a jury they are not guilty…
        There is nothing your “NOT the Black people’s President” can do for you…it is like education, it must start in the home…but for some reason, families are first one’s to convince you to take the deal” -PB Short.

        -PB Short

        There is one positive solution, and that is using the influence necessary to insure that any inept court appointed attorney or otherwise, especially a court appointed Black attorney who has a history of recommending his or her client and/or to any judge of the court that his or her Black and truly innocent client “plead no contest/guilty” be fired on the spot, or barred from ever practicing law again.

        Holding individuals accountable or firing them if they are not competent:

        1. Will keep you from senselessly losing your shirt/assets through paying for incompetence.

        2. Will increase competency in the Black community.

        3. Individuals who are not competent won’t be able to make a living.

        4. They can or will lose their license to be lawfully and gainfully employed, or if an incompetent individual is licensed he or she won’t be able to financially profit from holding the license, because truly informed individuals will not seek or pay for the services of the incompetent.

  28. Brother Farrakhan is correct about investing, but we need our own black businesses to invest in, along with investing in others as well. I recall he was the NOI leader who started the cutback on the black businesses of the Nation of Islam some time back. So where are all of the NOI businesses now, Brother Farrakhan, that many individul Muslims had? Booker T. Washington was correct when he said over 150 years ago, that any group of people that do not have their own businesses and economic power cannot be free and independent, and have the respect of others. And as for many of the brothers on the streets in trouble, and having no jobs, THEY NEED TO TAKE THEIR BEHINDS TO SCHOOL AND GET SOME KNOWLEDGE IN THEIR BRAINS. So speak to education too Brother Louis Farrakhan, which is extremely vital. And our black leaders need to stress this over and over until it is ringing in their ears. Dumb and ignorance ain’t gonna get anyone anywhere. Brother Jesse Jackson use to always say: “You got to get the books to get the bucks.” And all of our black leaders need to be saying it now. — Rev.

    There is not a Constitutional protection more important to the essence of what it means to be a U.S. citizen, than the opportunity to lawfully make an honest living, that makes it possible to legally acquire property, to provide food, clothing, and shelter for a family, and to have competent representation in a lawyer, an elected official to enable you to keep legally acquired property and to uphold other Constitutional rights!

    RE: “Research Shows Quality of Life for Black Mothers Is Extremely Low:”

    Here you have Black women fussing/complaining/crying about Black men not being a responsible Father…….The problems and solutions are more complex than placing all blame for the destruction of the Black family, and the demise of the Black community by using Black men, namely Black Fathers as the only culprit!

    …..and Martin Luther King “Dream Speeches or MLK Freedom Marches have yet to address or resolve these issues.

If one can’t choose to be gay or straight how can one choose to be a democrat or republican. If one doesn’t believe in equality how can one “choose” to believe in it? We can change our minds on decisions but we are or are not racists. The democrat party has a long history of hate and distain for those who aren’t white Christians. These racist democrats didn’t change parties they stayed democrats and became good at hiding their true feelings. I learned at an early age that I didn’t want to be associated with hypocrites, I knew at an early age that I possessed conservative views, I m a republican. So you liberal left twisting lug nuts can keep your race-hating goofs. We in the Republican Party never wanted them anyway.
