Black Middle Class:The Problem with Black Business Movements

Black Middle Class:The Problem with Black Business Movements

Black panel discussionThe Black Empowerment Project raised a very valid question, one that has yet to be responded to, nor answered by any of the Black economic movements. That question is how do we achieve Black economic independence? Now, the question suggests the answer. The answer is, by build Black economic intradependence and independence. But, all the Black economic movements completely fail to even formulate a plan to encourage Black economic independence.

Now, Dr. Claud Anderson, in his powernomics movement, had a very sensible idea, but it shared the same limitation as the Marcus Garvey movement, it had a singular focus in one product, albeit a very good one. Dr. Anderson wanted a vertical monopoly: fisheries, transportation, restaurants. Garvey wanted ships for transport and cargo.

African American Manifesto: My Black Agenda for Mellenium 2000

African American Manifesto: My Black Agenda for Millennium 2000

African Slaves[I am touched that you wrote me. I have been planning to start a Black business bureau for some time now. I have not written out the plan, but this seems as good a time as any. This letter will not only go to you, but I am now, because you inspired me, will be sending this out to every Black church, Black politician, Black organization in the entire country. I can dedicate a few thousand to this letter and campaign. I am also an online marketing genius and will be doing a major press release of this letter as well. Thank you for inspiring me. Here’s my response to you.]

When African slaves were sold or stolen from Africa, they were first sent to an island just off the coast of west Africa. On this island, they were mind-wiped and the men were brainwashed against the women. For, 95% of Africans were sent to central and south America. In central and south America Africans could hope to live the ripe old age of 23. However, they actually were treated quite a bit better, since they learned skills. However, because their death rate was so high, they never grew in population.

Well, what about that 5% that was sent to America? Because the US had a constitution that said “all men are created equal”, Americans went overboard to make sure Africans were never seen as humans. They went through TWO different mind-wiping sessions. One off the coast of Louisiana, and a 3rd at the auction blocks. However,they were treated with kid gloves, compared to south America. However, they were kept as dumb as rocks. They learned absolutely nothing and it was forbidden to teach them anything, by law. Americans were deathly afraid they would revolt, which actually happened several time, but was kept to just that city. One town was completely slaughtered by Africans. There is even a famous painting about it, however this is not taught in public education.

When slavery was abolished in the US, Africans had been able to live to a much higher age than in south America and grew to be 30% of the population. However, these Africans had been mind-wiped 3 separate times, stripped of religion, origin, family, and culture. Upon their release they knew nothing, literally nothing.

Africans had to teach themselves how to read and write, make a family, farm for themselves, etc. Two things they could not teach themselves: their religion; their cultural origins. Even with these horrible odds, Africans became 80% literate in 50 years, something unheard of in human history.

While there were Africans that flourished in the new free era, most barely got by. A lot were slaughtered by racist white people who saw African freedmen as an economic threat to their livelihood. Many new laws were passed to keep tools out of the Africans hands; minimum wage laws were passed to keep people from hiring Africans; and anything produced by Africans was not allowed to come to market. Many African farmers went under from not being able to sell their produce.

The answer is not a question of just pouring money into the modern African American community. It requires a COMPLETE overhaul.

  • – branding: African Americans need to be branded as a viable and independent political group with our own identity, culture, religion and origin from Africa
  • – BRANDING: we need to produce new art, media, entertainment that if Pan-African, African centered and African inspired, with Africans as the only people in such media [THIS IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN ALL OTHER POINTS]
  • – we need to denounce any and all other groups that try to co-op our history, culture and art, who systematically claim it as their own and as their origination [like the Egyptian story; jewish story; our music; our culture]
  • – as a political group we need to acquire and send lobbyist to every state legislature and the federal congress, to lobby for African political and economic gains [NOT CIVIL RIGHTS]; we need things like the war on drugs stopped, which was intended and used as a racial profiling thing to send Africans into the prison system, to the tune of 75% of all Africans in prison today are there based on drug charges, to the tune of a $75 BILLION a year price tag; we need to remove all racist legislation; we need to understand, read and hold politicians responsible to the constitution, which is our best and only way to eradicate racist legislation; we need to remove Africans off of all social welfare legislation, this has destroyed the African family
  • black married couple and kids– as an independent political group we need to divorce ourselves from the Democrat party; if we are serious about our independence we need to have the capability to vote as a group; voting for the Democrat party has made the Democrats take our votes and voice for granted
  • – we need to control African finance and African money; we need to open and gather in every city African run, operated and owned credit unions; we need to aggressively educate and finance African business; we need to arrest and stop any 3rd parties that are financing and control African business
  • – we need to control all African disposable income and spending; we need to arrest and stop any 3rd parties that are selling commodities in our communites and to Africans in America
  • – we need to control all African necessary expenditures, this includes food, energy and real property; we need to arrest and stop any 3rd party that controls necessities Africans have to pay for
  • – we need to go into our communities, move back in, fix them up, and open up all forms of business that Africans need and use on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis; we need to target and pick locations that have high concentrations of Africans already in them and do our best to move out 3rd parties; we need to open up convenience stores, credit unions, grocers, transportation and everything else needed, in each community so that Africans do not need to go outside of the community to spend money.
  • – we need to start regional stock markets that trade in African produce, commodities, and equities in African firms; this will get African farmers to produce and transport their produce to African stores as one big giant economic circle
  • – we need to connect these regional stock markets with stock markets in the motherland, which are now booming and coming online; 2 new major stock markets have come online recently in Africa and they need more business
  • – we need to understand that marriage is the most stabilizing social factor in our modern time, and we need to encourage our community to get married at every opportunity; marriage also is very strategic and economically good for both people; we need to launch a national campaign to encourage Africans to marry each other; we need to put African marriage in front of our people, through pictures, art, music, entertainment and as a sound business strategy [since it is more economic to be married]
  • – we need to purchase and take private, all historically Black Colleges; we need to control all African education; we need to arrest and stop 3rd parties from mis-educating our African youth, young adults and young professionals; this is exactly what all other groups do; we need to open and start vocational and skill based education for high school and young African adults; we need to access and encourage our youth to understand what they are good at, what they desire and to realize that college is not the answer for nearly 60% of the population; we need to educate our youth that colleges are a business and that they are putting out propaganda that you “should” go to college, in order to rake in money, at the young African’s expense, which they’ll be paying for, for decades; we need to encourage our young African to develop skills, such as automotive, electrical, plumbing etc, for blue collar paychecks, instead of minimum wage

If we are to survive this next century, we need to take some serious stock of what we are doing. We need to realize that, unless we get organized and think of ourselves as a group, we will be treated as chattel, misused, miseducated, and state dependent victims to a socialist state, with our wealth stolen year after year.

As it stands now, Africans in America cannot do anything to protect, save or help our countries in the motherland. Our people are being raped, murdered and wealth stolen by nearly every western power on the planet, and now Asia is getting in on the taking. We need to clean our house and get it in order.

Black Genocide in America: Attacking the Black Father

Black Genocide in America: Attacking the Black Father

Open any newspaper, log onto your favorite Black woman rant blog, or watch any movie that talks about Black men and you’ll always hear: Black men leave their children in the dust and don’t take care of them. I am here to tell you it’s all a BIG FAT LIE. It is a systemic attack on the Black man.

So many people see statements like this, and think they are true and start to repeat the lie over and over. Before you start repeating all of these lies, stop and think for a second: who is saying this; what is their qualification for saying this; how do they know this? Most of TV is material they need to put on there to take up time, so they can make money from the commercials in between. That material is called content. This “content” doesn’t mean they have to back up their claims. They can simply say anything they want, so long as the commercials keep rolling.

You have done no research at all. In fact, you’re just propagating the attacks on the Black family and the all out genocide of Black men.

Let me give you some real facts: 58% of Black women are or have been married [this includes divorced and widowed]; 65% of Black men are or have been married [this includes divorced and widowed]. Now only 4.8% of Black men are in jail, period [US Bureau of Justice statistics] So they are not impacting the total Black mail population. So only 35% of Black men have never been married.

A very glaring database is left out: Black men without children. Let me venture a guess on this.

Different researchers have said that between 3%-9% of the population is homosexual. In my estimation a large percentage of that is female. [sadly] Of that percent I would guess  3% represent men. [with no children]

1,909,000 Black men hold a 4 year college degree or better: 1,341,000 4 year degree; 409,000 masters degree; 88,000 professional degree [doctor / lawyer etc] I am willing to bet that a high percentage of these men have no children, especially the 500,000 that have higher than 4 yr degrees. The Black population is now at 41.8 million [2010 census] half of which are men, so about 21 million [data suggests that slightly more men than women are born] so a cool 10% probably have no children.

That brings the grand total to 13% of Black men with no children. So of the Black men left that leaves 35% – 13% = 22% of Black men who have children and are unmarried.

Finally, the last nail in the coffin for these silly rants people have been making against Black men, is that Pew Research showed that Black men spend more quality time with their children than any other racial group. These are the unmarried fathers.

These attacks on Black men are coming from both the outside and within the Black race. They are unwarranted, often misguided and always not backed up with any data. People see someone say something negative on tv about Black men or Black children and assume it’s true.

No, we are not at 1950 levels of 70% marriage rate among Blacks, but we are nowhere near the 72% of Black children born without fathers lies that are constantly being spread.

Lies About Black Fatherless Children

Lies About Black Fatherless Children

Turn on any talk show and you’ll hear 72% of Black children are fatherless. Turn on any news show and you will hear the same thing. Turn on any talk radio and the same thing is repeated. But wait, U.S. Census statistics says 48% of Black women have never been married. That means that 58% of Black women are married, divorced or widowed.

So let’s return to this 72% statistic that is being reported. The person reporting it, always comes across as if the Black child never had a father, doesn’t know the father and the relationship of the parents dissolved before the child was born, complete absentee father, i.e. fatherless.

But wait, pew research shows that only 44% of Black fathers live apart from their children. Again this blows away that 72%, because that means that 56% live WITH their children. Also, research shows that of the fathers that live apart from their children, BLACK FATHERS SPEND MORE TIME WITH THEIR CHILDREN THAN ANY OTHER RACIAL GROUP.

But wait, independent research also showed that 41% of all Black children live WITH their father, either in a marriage or single-dad households. Again, that blows away that 72% statistic. Across the bored, in all research, it shows that either a strong majority or a close majority of Black children live with their fathers.

There is an old saying, “statistics don’t lie, the people that used them do”.

Here’s another trend they are not telling you. Among all teen pregnancy, Black teen pregnancy has declined more than all other races since 1990 and is showing a trend to stay that way. Yes, that means less Black teen-age girls are having babies than white or Asian girls. [Hispanic is not a race, in case you were confused]

So we have fewer “at risk” pregnancies; Black fathers leading 41% of homes; and wait, there’s more.

The Black divorce rate is only 32%. The white divorce rate is 39%. So 68% of all Black marriages stay together.

“68% of all Black marriages stay together.”

Slavery and the Legacy of the Black Father

Talk to most Americans and they have no idea what slavery was. In fact, they know even less about Jim Crow. Fewer still know about segregation.

Briefly, Africans were sold on what is now known as Wallstreet. They had been captured from Africa, sent to central America to be tortured, beaten and stripped of their will, normally ending in suicide, and of those that remain 13% made it to the auction blocks of Wallstreet. These slaves, 3/4 of which were men, were sold to southern farmers for about 60 – 70 years.

Because the wealth that the southern famers had were so tremendous, the northern businessmen stopped Wallstreet from auctioning slaves, and the American revolution began. The southern states tried to remove themselves from the federal republic, and the northern states attacked them. During this time President Lincoln declared all slaves freed and to fight the white southerners.

After that civil war, the south then proceeded to institute laws to keep Blacks and Black families in the same exact situation of slavery. Northern states, who had sold Blacks on the auction blocks of Wallstreet found themselves in the position of being in direct competition with both the always free Blacks and the newly freed Blacks for business and jobs. So they too instituted laws against Black people and Black families. This was known as the Jim Crow era. And, contrary to popular belief it was all over the U.S., not just the south.

After many technological advances, and social inventions like trade unions, Blacks could be held back financial through local and private means. There was no longer any need to pass laws to keep Blacks and Black families at bay.

This started the segregation era. The southern states, who were not business oriented, still kept their Jim Crow laws in place. While Blacks were segregated all over the country, the Jim Crow south was an embarrassment to the country and it led to the first Black national financial revolution. It was stopped immediately by the federal government and the local state governments.

In a compromise effort, Black leadership agreed to stop any and all financial revolts and instead focused on trying to regulate white behavior towards Blacks.

This compromise led to the complete and utter financial ruin of all Black communities nationwide. Most Black businesses shut down and the financial wealth of the community switched from business to returning to work for the very people that enslaved, Jim Crowed, and segregated them.

During this entire time the Black family was under attack. During slavery it was the practice to simply remove the Black man and sell him to another plantation owner. During Jim Crow the Black father was simply tortured, mutilated and murdered. During segregation, again, tortured, mutilated and murdered.

In the new era after the Black financial revolution fell apart, a new Jim Crow arose. In this new era, massive incarceration takes the Black man out of the picture. No need to murder him. Simply incarcerate him during his prime years, 18 – 40, and you achieve the same exact outcome.

The method to get Black men incarcerated though had to be ramped up, because what would incarcerate a Black man, would also incarcerate a white man. So the federal government allowed for private prisons to be a new business. They introduced new harsh drugs into the Black segregated communities. Immediately they passed drug laws with unconstitutional mandatory sentencing. They trained police to target mostly Black youths, make unconstitutional stops and unconstitutional searches. This was a cocktail to make 100,000 inmates grow to millions, with most of them being young Black men.

This is the era we find ourselves in today. So, although the statistics look quite grim, the Black father is more than successful given the new Jim Crow era we find ourselves in.

Who is Behind the Black Fatherless Child Lie?

So who is behind these misleading statistics? The chief proponent of putting out this false stat has been the Democratic party, since before the 60s. They have systematically put out many false statistics for political gain, so that whites can feel secure about themselves, and Blacks can feel ashamed of themselves. Either way, all of their social programs get passed for “humanitarian” reasons. However, in every case, the Democratic social programs have ALWAYS harmed the Black family. So it is a double dose of backstabbing by the Democratic party. They lie about the state of the Black family. They pass laws that destroy the Black family.

Keeping white families at ease has always been the strategy of the Democratic party. Kennedy did nothing to help Blacks during the failed financial revolt of the 60s. For fear of reelection he did not send national guard to assist the freedom riders. For fear of reelection he did not sign into law civil rights legislation. To put white families at ease he threw Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in jail, and only released him if Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. agreed to switch from the Republican party to the Democratic party.

Time and again it has been the Democratic party that has led the charge AGAINST the Black family. However, since it was Black people involved, no news organizations nor law firms nor state or federal government thought it important enough to blow the whistle. However, because it has been so ingrained in the Black community that the Democratic party is for Blacks it is nearly too late to get Black families to realize who has been doing this to them.

If we can get the drugs out of the community, all the drug laws completely removed, and get the millions of Black men released from prison, you will see a boom in the Black population and Black marriage will return to 70%, which it was during the Jim Crow, Segregation and Black financial revolution eras.

We can only do this by being scholars of politics, getting our own lobbyists at the state and federal levels and returning to real Black communities with our own businesses.

The statistic of 72% of all Black children being “fatherless” is a complete and utter lie. I have shown here that not only are Black children not fatherless, but more often than not Black children are in a married home.

You want to see the fatherless rate decrease from 40% to 0%, this is what we must do.
