(The Solution For Black America)

As the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech comes to an end, it is worthwhile to note the state of Black America today. Sadly, we continue to face immense poverty,  broken families, black on black crime, failing schools and crumbling infrastructure in the inner cities of this country. Trillion of dollars has been spent in the last 50 years on Great Society programs like public education and public housing, the results have been devastating to say the least. The federal government has provided an incentive for Black families to disintegrate, today 75% of African American children are born to unwed mothers. This lack of family structure help contributes to crime and incarceration for millions of young African American males. The Black on Black crime epidemic afflicts every region of our country. Among Black homicide victims, a staggering 93% are killed by other African Americans.

I remember reading one of Dr. Kings speeches entitled “The Crisis In American Cities” I added the link at the bottom of this post.  What I recall is that Dr. King blamed the main problem on those in power which I call the financial elites. They are the ones who created Jim Crow and imposed unjust laws on us to abide by. It’s been 98 years since Marcus Garvey, Web Dubois, and Booker T Washington and Dr. King to unite Black Americans so that we can form our own economy within our community and govern our own affairs. The main reason why our people cannot see eye to eye is because of unresolved issue of slavery called Willie Lynch mentality. In my organization we will deal with this issue head on.  I provide such a plan on how we can end gun violence, poverty, and structural inequality within our community but sadly to say I lack support from our own people this is why I wrote my book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” Second Edition. This is an auto-biography about my experience growing up in the inner city of Chicago.

I also wrote my book in order to generate capital/seed money, in order to offer incentives to thirty talented individuals within the state of Illinois or beyond who have read my book and agree with what I am trying to do in Urban America to come to Chicago and work with me directly in getting my organization up and running. The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement is a private for profit service base business. It will have three main components: a social service component, a spiritual component, and a political component. This organization is to assist single black mothers, single black fathers, and low income two parent families, who reside in the inner cities of Chicago, eventually in 25 other cities in America. Once we’re established in 25 cities within 25 states I plan on expanding my organization abroad to Africa, Brazil, and the Caribbean Islands.   Today’s Civil Rights leaders have been silent on the crime issues in Urban America because they lack a plan and a solution to end the problem. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a monumental figure, speaking for millions of Americans and speaking out against social injustice and oppression.  His successors in the Civil Rights Movement are not worthy to follow in his footsteps. It is a crying shame that the talented Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was succeeded by black capitalist. King was an inspirational orator, preaching non-violence and the value of a colorblind society.  Today’s civil rights leaders preach a steady diet of starting a jobs bill, the school to prison pipeline, and the mass incarceration of black males while overlooking the crisis in the inner cities and in the Black family. This tactic is used to keep the same Civil Rights leaders relevant and employed.  I agree that our country has made tremendous progress in the past 50 years. There are no separate lunch counters or fountains. Blacks have equal access to the voting booth and the corridors of power. In fact, with an African American President, there are no political doors closed to African Americans today. Unfortunately, President Barack Obama has been ineffective in improving the plight of Black Americans because there is no black agenda. In the Black community, the poverty rate is 33%, double the national average, while the unemployment rate is 12.6%, double the level of the White community.  Moving forward, our leaders should pursue policies that lift the economy for all Americans. We should continue to demand that all racial discrimination ends. No one, White or Black, should be discriminated against on the basis of color. In reality it is racist to hold Black Americans to a lower standard and expect less. We need to hold all Americans to the same standard and encourage excellence in the classrooms and in the workplace. Only in this way will our country be realizing the beautiful dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Real Christian Socialist Online
