Damn the Talk; This Book is a Plan of Action!
Over the last 50 years African Americans have heard many speeches, read many books, and attended the marches and protest rallies; however, the descendants of African slaves are as dysfunctional as ever. Our people and our communities are suffering more and more from black-on-black crime, drug abuse, violent gangs, illiteracy, high drop-out rate, low college entry rate, lack of spiritual development and a host of other maladies that contribute to the continued marginalization of the African American.
The Black-print is a book with a bold and comprehensive plan that promises to empower the descendants of African slaves to control their own destiny. This book gets to the heart of the many problems African Americans face; and provides unique and radical solutions to these problems.
The concepts and strategies of the "Black-print" focused towards uplifting African Americans to a level of success that is unprecedented in these United States. The Black-print intends to remove the tarnish and stigma that has been a burden to the descendants of African slaves for hundreds of years. The Black-prints aspires to reveal the beauty, dignity and power of a once great and mighty people.
About the Black-print:
Chapter one is the introduction to the Black-print.
Chapter Two of the Black-print reveals the real driving force behind, and the perpetuation of the enslavement of the African. It also reveals, why to this day, the descendants of African slaves, especially African American males, are systematically disenfranchised.
Chapter Three deals with what I believe are the five major entities or institutions that lay obstacles to our path towards wealth, prosperity and respect. These entities and institutions have always made claims of being our ally; however, the Black-print exposed them for what they truly are; impediments to the progress of African Americans and the communities they live in.
Chapter Four is the actual blueprint. It breaks down each entity or institution and the obstacles it presents. It then proceeds to provide creative and effective solutions for overcoming these destructive forces that prey on the descendants of African slaves.
Chapter Five is a challenge to African Americans to test drive the Black-print and the solutions and strategies it suggest. The Black-print is a massive undertaking. That is why I am suggesting that we test-drive the blueprint in one of the most recognized African Communities in America, Harlem, U.S.A. This chapter offers us an opportunity to set a standard of how any African American community can be revitalized, rejuvenated, united and prosperous.
The reality is: Black men and women will never be respected in America as individuals, until we are respected as a people.
