Yep. I called Benny with that lisp a modern day ambulance chaser under the guise of civil rights. But, I have no contempt for him. Get paid. Help others get paid too. Do something with the money

 

I'm pro-Black to a fault but I still call balls and strikes as I see it. Anybody can get it.

 

When my people do well, I'm proud. When n8gglets are f8cking up, I acknowledge that too. I want black folks to win on all levels...constructively.

 

Beneath my intellect, there's also a comedian. Factor that into what I write as well. Emojis don't always get the point across.😎

Maybe I should clarify my post.....
Actually I didn't have YOU or anyone on this forum in mind when I said "you" called our brutha an ambulance chaser......I've heard MANY Black folks say that about him, lol.
I was talking about our people collectively.

My point that NEITHER Trump nor Biden was putting money in the pocket of Black folks the way people like Ben Crump and Lee Merritt have done.
Yet they are often seen as pariahs in the community.



But as far as Ben Crump.....

Look, the brother is doing his job and winning cases.
He's not a Criminal Defense lawyer....he's a Civil lawyer.
Most people don't understand there's a difference and they keep asking him to lock people up as if he can do that.
He's doing his job....which is winning civil suits or getting settlements.
As long as he's getting Black folks paid, I can't complain TOO much about him.


No he's not the most articulate and charming person in the world, and they say he's getting money from these cities to "shut up" the families of the victims....
Well, that may be true but that's not stopping the REST of the community from speaking out and doing something about it.
I think a lot of this hatred toward our brother is jealousy because THEY aren't the ones getting the millions, I know how petty a lot of our people can be.

I'll take Crump and Merritt UNTIL some better lawyers come along and step up to take their places.

Politicians aren't enriching black folks because we don't have enough of an economic infrastructure in place to take advantage of government contracts, small business loans, subsidies, tax breaks,  etc.

 

Otherwise and unfortunately,  it looks like the primary way  black folks get a windfall of cash is by accident (killed, injured, discrimination, etc.) or by luck

...hitting the lottery. 😎

Truth.
 

I had quite a few people acknowledge to me that yeah Crump and Merritt are getting Black folks paid, but it's at the expense of them losing their lives.

But hell, even before Crump and Merritt came a long a lot of Black folks were getting killed and weren't getting shit out of it.
Atleast the family is getting SOMETHING now even if they don't get their loved one back.

 

I say get it however you can get it in this society.
As long as you aren't hurting other people in the process.

All money you  get WITHOUT violating other people is clean money in my opinion.

WHILE THE DEMS ARE FIGHTING EVERYDAY WITH republicans/2-dixieCRATS-TO EQUALLY SHARE THE SWEETNESS OF THE AMERICAN PIE WITH A NEEDED MIDDLE CLASS AMERICAN POPULATION THROUGH COVID RELIEF POLICIES&NOW MOST RECENTLY, PRESIDEN BIDEN'S "BBB" PROGRAMS
("BUILD BACK BETTER")THAT WILL SUPPORT ALL AMERICANS&NO LONGER JUST THE 1%RICH!!! 
PRESIDENT BIDEN&THE DEMS SUPPORT!!! 
***Lower Child Care Costs
For 57 percent of children under six, there are no good choices for child care where they live. Only 44 percent of four-year-olds are served by public preschool programs. Nearly four in five private sector workers have no access to paid family leave. The President’s plan would ensure that no middle-class family pays more than 7 percent of their income for high-quality child care up to age 5—and that working families most in need won’t pay anything—saving the average family $14,800 per year. President Biden will also make universal preschool a reality, partnering with states to offer every parent access to high-quality preschool for 3- and 4- year-olds in the setting of their choice. Fully implementing this investment is projected to benefit five million families and save the average American family $13,000 per year. And the Build Back Better Agenda would institute 12 weeks of paid family and medical leave, to help improve the health of new mothers and reduce wage loss.
***Lower Higher Education Costs
Education beyond high school is increasingly important to succeed in the 21st century economy, even as it has become unaffordable for too many families. The Build Back Better Agenda would provide two years of free community college—boosting the earnings of low-wage high school graduates by nearly $6,000 per year. President Biden’s plan will also increase the maximum Pell Grant award by almost $1,500, and invest billions in subsidized tuition for low- and middle-income students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Tribal Colleges and Universities, and minority-serving institutions. The plan also invests in evidence-based strategies to strengthen completion and retention rates at institutions that serve high numbers of low-income students, particularly community colleges.
***Lower Prescription Drug Costs
Americans pay 2-3 times more for their prescription drugs than people in other wealthy countries, and nearly 1 in 4 Americans struggle to afford prescription drugs. President Biden’s plan will lower prescription drug costs for Americans by letting Medicare negotiate drug prices, so consumers are no longer at the whim of pharmaceutical companies.
***Lower Health Care Costs
The Build Back Better Agenda would reduce health insurance premiums, saving 9 million people an average of $50 per person per month, and add dental, vision, and hearing coverage to Medicare. By closing the Medicaid gap for low-income Americans, the President’s plan would help 4 million uninsured people gain coverage. President Biden’s agenda would also expand home care for older and disabled Americans, while improving the jobs and the pay of the home care workers who care for them.
***Lower Housing Costs
Driven by the largest shortfall of new housing units in 50 years, rents and housing prices continue to increase—with some 10.5 million renters paying more than half their incomes in rent. The Build Back Better Agenda will use tax credits and government financing to bolster affordable and resilient housing, supporting the construction or rehabilitation of more than two million homes.
***Tax Cuts for Families with Children
One third of all adults with children struggle to pay their usual expenses. The American Rescue Plan increased the Child Tax Credit from $2,000 per child to $3,000 per child for children six and over and $3,600 for children under six. The Build Back Better Agenda will extend the Child Tax Credit expansion in the American Rescue Plan, providing nearly 40 million households. This tax cut is the single largest contributor of the plan cutting child poverty nearly in half.
***Tax Cuts for Workers Without Children
The President’s agenda extends the American Rescue Plan’s increase to the Earned-Income Tax Credit from $543 to $1,502. This will benefit roughly 17 million low-wage workers, including cashiers, cooks, delivery drivers, food preparation workers, and child care providers.
***Workforce Training
The U.S. has chronically underinvested in workforce development, and millions of jobs have been going unfilled in growing sectors such as construction and health care. Through high-quality career and technical education pathways and Registered Apprenticeships, President Biden’s Build Back Better Agenda will invest in training programs that will prepare millions of American workers for high-quality jobs in growing sectors.
***Clean Energy Jobs
When President Biden thinks about climate change, he thinks jobs. To position the U.S. to tackle the climate crisis and advance environmental justice, the President’s plan would create good-paying, union jobs, establish an energy efficiency and clean energy standard, expand and extend clean energy and electric vehicle tax credits, and enlist a new Civilian Climate Corps.
***Investments in Teachers and Schools
Even before the pandemic, our schools faced an estimated teacher shortage of 100,000, undermining the education of our children and students of color in particular. President Biden’s Build Back Better Agenda will address teacher shortages and improve teacher preparation, including through teacher residencies and Grow Your Own programs that produce better outcomes and develop more teachers of color. It would expand free school meals to an additional 9.3 million children during the school year and help families purchase food during the summer. And the President’s plan also invests in upgrading school infrastructure, so that we have cutting-edge, energy-efficient, resilient school buildings with technology and labs that will prepare students for the jobs of the future.

But now...is there a BLACK AGENDA in all of that?

It's nice, I was reading through it...but what does it do for us specifically?

Nothing.  That's why Democrats have historically taken advantage of the black vote.  They talk a good game but it's mostly smoke and mirrors. 

 

Black folks need to codify an agenda in all areas of human actiivity and have the ability to provide oversight to insure that it happens. 

 

There's a reason that other folks have multiple organizations and special interest groups to secure their needs and wants

 

Black folks need more ore than NAACP, CBC, BIG, UNCF, BLM, etc.  Most of those are fronts anyway.  They are the organizational equivalent of a Sit and Spin:

I've repeatedly said for over 10 years now that Black folks need a SOLID AGENDA.

But what I've been saying for about 3 years specifically is that INTELLIGENT and DECENT Black folks need to get together and formulate this agenda because you'll never unite ALL Black folks on everything.
 

Unfortunately, some of our people are just plain too STUPID to know what's in their best interests.  They'll sell-out for a pack of Black-N-Milds and 12 piece party pack of Popeyes chicken.


You can't discuss anything of importance with them.
They won't understand if and many of those who manage to....will just screw your plans.

INTELLIGENT and DECENT Black folks need to organized and form an agenda.
 

I've discovered that INTELLIGENT Black people...meaning Black people with an IQ of atleast over 95..actually tend to think quite similar.
We notice the same things in society and actually notice the same problems.  
When intelligent Black men get together...and leave the dope and alcohol alone while we meet...we usually come up with VIABLE solutions to our problems pretty quickly.
 

It's usually White folks who come into the meeting interfering with the discussion or Black FOOLS who waste time talking loud and making threats that hinder progress.

And don't let a bunch of Black fools AND some White folks be at the same meeting...they'll REALLY act up!!!
Start showing out and competing with eachother over who the White folks agree with the most.

Sure.  It only takes the talented 10% to hammer out a solid agenda and present it behalf of the group.

 

The best and brightest black minds didn't wait around for consensus when it came down to getting things done.  They knew there were more than a few butter biscuit and greasy chicken eating n8gglets licking their fingers who were down for whatever as long as they came up.😁

 

Pioneer, as I read your last two lines quoted above, I'm hearing NF Jr's voice.  ROTFLMAO.🤣

 

Nowadays, it's hard to get the talented 10th in the same room.  They've got platforms that allow them to do a whole lot of talking without solving any problems.  I'm not going to drop names but you have an idea.

 

It's been 53 years since MLK Jr was assassinated.  I'm beginning to think they killed the dream and buried any hope of a black agenda with him. 😎

The Talented Tenths was an ideological trap. We need to develop all our community so that can take independent action. America is on the verge of collapse and oppression is in the wings.

Ideologically, the responsibility of the Talented 10th was to put their own personal interests aside in order to uplift their communities. 

 

Regardless of whether it's a country or a corporation, when it comes to leadership, a small percentage of folks leads the multitude.

 

A Talented 10th doesn't absolve the role of the 90%. Every  individual within the community has the responsibility of using their knowledge, skills and abilities to make life better as well. 😎

You don’t become the 10% if you do that.

IMO, a talented black person can still be a 10% if they decide to work, lead, live and play, etc., i.e. uplift a black  community instead of taking their talent to a white community.

 

People are inspired and motivated by those who look like and are of them.

 

Unfortunately, through media and in their communities the role models many black folks are most often exposed to are athletes, entertainers, drug dealers and gang-bangers.

 

But, that inspiration and motivation would  work just as well if there were more black professionals (teachers, doctors, engineers, scientists, etc.)  and business owners in black communities. 😎

It’s not even about the White Community, it’s about the relationship to the other 90% that’s the problem. The human emotions of jealousy and hubris were never fully factored into the equation, they within them and other emotions lay the root of the undermining forces.

Understood. Part of being among the 10% is having the ability to transcend those negative human emotions.   It's takes a strong mind, courage and determination to shake haters and keep pushing.  But, it's not impossible.  

 

Despite his personal problems, DC Mayor for life, Marion Barry is an example of the Talented Tenth.  The man had a MS in Chemistry.  He could have worked in corporate America and lived a nice, cushy life.  Instead, he became the mayor of the original Chocolate City. Mayor Barry was beloved in the city by folks from all walks of life because he was of the community he served.  Mayor Barry would show up any and everywhere just to kick it with the people.  The business, educational and employment opportunities he created uplifted hundreds of thousands of black folks who are doing extremely well.  I'm a living testimony.  😎

If you read my posts you'll notice I constantly talk about the most intelligent AND decent Black people coming together to build.
Because we have plenty of INTELLIGENT Black people in our community.  Problem is many of them are IMMORAL and use that intelligence for evil and selfish purposes that do nothing to uplift the collective and in many cases help destroy the community for self enrichment.

 

As soon as they get in the room with eachother, they start competing with eachother over who's the smartest, who has the most money, who should be the leader.

💯 Beautifully stated!

 

You can't have a society where EVERYBODY is in charge and doing what they want to do in their own direction.
You need a society where you have clear, qualified leadership who are dedicated to moving the community in the right direction...progress.

 

One of the problems with out community is you currently have too many chiefs and not enough Indians.

And vice versa
The Black masses also have a problem respecting it's leaders!

 

When the Chinese or Japanese leader tells the people what to do, the put their head down and shuffle off to do it.

It depends on what skills they're superior in.

 

If they're superior in sports or art or music...they may or may not make very good leaders.
However if they are superior in planning, Charisma, community organizing, and solving major problems....these are the talents that a GOOD leader should possess.

 

 

 

 

 

The question is does the governing structure serve the people or the other way around?

 

If that's the question...then the answer is both.

A good government is not only served BY the people but SERVES the people quite well.

They are if the criminal is the one with his knee on George's neck.

Believing in politicians is ridiculous.

 

I didn't BELIEVE in Obama, but I voted for him the 1st time. It costs a LOT of Money to run for president. So as I was voting I was also wondering, "Who bought him?"

A better time??

Hmmmm...........


I think for me and most Black people...the 90s were a much better time economically than it is today.
Crime was high, but economically speaking there was far less homelessness among our people than today.
Plus the jobs paid better or atleast the money took you further back in the 90s than it does today.

Many service industry jobs were paying $10 and $12 and hour right up until 6 months ago.
They bumped up the wages a couple bucks on many jobs as an incentive to bring more people back, but it's not working.
But I was making $10 plus commission back in the early 90s as a saleman and that was nearly 30 years ago.

Wages really haven't increased much although rent, mortgage, and real estate has.


I was around in the 70s but I was a kid and don't know how hard or easy it was to make a living but I know in Detroit the factory workers were making $20+ an hour plus full benefits even back then!
Most Black folks were owning their own homes, buying houses to rent out, saving money, ect...
Black folks seem to have it better in the 70s collectively than in the 90s and definitely better than today.
