Black America’s Leadership

When I think of Leadership, the first example of a good leader that comes to my mind is Moses. Moses took Leadership when the Jewish People were in slavery in Egypt. Under Moses Leadership, the Jews went from a very bad position to a much better position. They went from Slavery to Freedom and they were on their way to the Promise Land.
Now let’s compare Moses with the whole managery of Black Leaders in America, for the last 60 or more years. The NAACP, Martin Luther King, Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton, have led Black People to the bottom of the economic scale in America. Protesting, marching, boycotting and demonstrating have proved not to be a sound economic plan for black people to pursue. Instead, that course have led to more poverty, father-less children, and irresponsibility on the part of our young people.
Our Leaders have done more harm than our enemies. The KKK only wish that they could devastate blacks as thoroughly as have our Black Leaders. If I were a KKK Klan Boss, I would send each one of them a paycheck every week for the good job they are doing of leading Black People back into slavery. Moses led his people to Freedom and Prosperity.
In 1953, the Black Man’s income was 57% of that of the White Man’s. But in 1962, it was only 53% of his income. In a period of 10 years, the Black Man’s income had dropped 4% points in comparison with the White Man’s.
Now, according to a recent Pew Hispanic Center Analysis of Census Bureau Data, the wealth gap is greater than ever. The Average White Family had a net worth 20 times greater than the Black Family. I’ll gladly trade the whole managery of Black Leaders for one Moses.
