A Few Facts About Blacks In America…

1. The first Americans or Native Americans going back to 6,000 BC were black! Look up the Folsom people who lived in Arizona. Or cite Mormon history (though many of the Elders are in historical denial)…

2. Best reason to stop our use of the term African American and say Black. A white person who was born in Africa, who moves to America is an African American and qualifies for financial aid, etc., but will get the jobs/pay privileges afforded to whites.

3. Look up the Slavery Law of 1665 (which stayed in effect until 1968) and the Maryland Doctrine of Exclusion (1638): both laws state that Blacks must be excluded from the benefits afforded whites and that Blacks must remain Non-competitive with whites, except in sports and entertainment.

4. Two white men: Bill Gates and Larry Elision, combined have more wealth; than the combined wealth of all 40 million Blacks in America.

Civil Rights did not change the economic landscape or the balance of power in America. Are we hoping the 2008 election of Barack Obama would bring change – I doubt it will- but then a “promise is a comfort for a fool”…

5. Asians receives 80% of all government minority set aside contracts. Hello!!!

6. Blacks eat more fish than whites by a four to one margin. For every dollar whites spend on fish, Blacks spend nine dollars on fish. Fish sold wholesale for $1 will retail at $2.50-$3.00. Guess what business we should be in as Blacks? Not Bird’s Eye for sure!!!

7. There is no Black owned national cable or major network television stations. The Black lady who owns our only black owned radio stations, plans to sell to white owners after hearing the deal Bob Johnson received for selling BET. (Cathy Hughes is from OMAHA) Oprah owns Harpo Production (now OWN) but still depends on the major network and BET has been sold on to white interest.

8. There are no Black owned companies on the Wall Street Stock Exchange where Blacks own the majority or controlling interest of the stock.

9. 96% of all Black inmates are men. Suicides rates have also doubled from 5.6 in every 100,000 amongst Black males.

10. Over the next two years 440,000 black inmates will be released from prison. The State has no place to put them as they re-enter society. Halfway house businesses, you think? Or will they end up in a forced draft if the president has to fight a major war in the Middle East alongside Israel?

11. In 1860, 98% of all Blacks in America worked for white people. In 2010, 98% of all Blacks in America still work for white people. So much for entrepreneurship!!!

12. In 1860, Blacks in America had a combined net worth of half of one percentage point. Guess what, in 2010, after Civil Rights, Jesse Jackson, Oprah, Shaq, NAACP, and Urban League, Barack and others our combined net worth is STILL* half a percentage point.

13. For every dollar earned by a Jewish person, that dollar touches 12-18 Jewish hands before it leaves their community. For every dollar earned by a Black person it leaves the community soon as he or she earns it.

14. In Washington DC, Black teenagers were arrested and booked for eating McDonald’s on the metro subway. Cops cited the recent 5-4 court decision as the permission to arrest lawbreakers even for minor offenses.

15. 67% of all hate crimes in America are against Blacks. After we get through being pleased that we have carpets in our office, a secretary, our name on the door and make six figures, let’s face it – we do not own anything. What will happen if you miss six months of work without pay? Or 3 months mortgage arrears payments? All we have left for our children is spiraling debt – not an inheritance ( George Bush has seen to that!). You cannot pass welfare or food stamps onto our kids as a nest egg!

By the way, the word “Race” hit the English language in the 16th century when Europeans held a contest to see who will win the “race” to gather the most wealth through exploitation of Black folks. Sounded familiar in the last election year – ask MITT*?

Just some of challenges which face Blacks as a people which ought to be part of the issues in the last “presidential race”…

But we rather discuss folly!!!

  5. It’s like banging your head against the wall. With all those blacks choosing to work for whitey and content in doing so. Especially the 80% of minority grants taken u by Asians who are saying a damn thing to blacks. Its a conspiracy(with piracy). They want us dead broke and begging whilst they laugh at us with that oh so arrogant smirk. The writing is on the wall.

  7. Blacks must build a community for them self.
    Give up hope for equality then gain justice from building wealth.

    Blacks need to go where people want to see them do good.

    Blacks should adopt principles which unite and eliminate self destruction.

  9. After 150 years something radical has to happen for a significant change to take place. This not only happens in the US, but wherever blacks settle it seems. I have lived most of my life in England having immigrated there from the Caribbean with my parents in the 60’s At the time Asians were also immigration from India and Pakistan and parts of Africa, many with little more than the clothes on their backs. Today many of the shops and business are are owned by them selling products to the Afro Caribbean that we uses exclusively. The problem we as a people have runs deeper than we think and it would in my opinion take a miracle to bring about any meaningful change.

  21. I completely agree and to be frank it’s very, very disheartening. However, we as a community never held his feet to the fire because he was our boy. We asked for nothing and we go nothing. The odd thing is, I think Trump, for all his nonsense, will probable do more for the black community than Obama ever could concieve to do. Obama took us for granted and he seemed to me anyway, to be more concerned about being President for all America, completely forgetting that all of white America has been taken care of for hundreds of years, largely off the backs of Black America and that’s a fact.

  22. I am not sure about Trump at all… What I know is that Black FOLKS* have to become a “COMMUNITY” just as Chinese, Koreans, Jews & all other hegemonic groups have their respective communities… We will never have the RESPECT* we deserve until we pull the levers of our own “MONETARY” power!!!
