Meanwhile, unemployment is the worst in how many years? Urban school districts are absolute disasters. And the ghetto is still the ghetto.

So it’s a good question.....where are the so called “leaders”?

If they truly gave a damn, they’d worry about alot more other than Thugvon Martin

” The Absence of Black Leadership in America”

I read articles like this 30 years ago. Only change is that blacks have even more children without fathers, and the violence has escalated.

Blacks need new leaders, or no leaders, anything but plantation masters they have now.

Are there any black freepers? If so, I would certainly like to hear their opinions about this article.

Another Duke case.....

P.S. Crystal Magnum is in jail for stabbing her boyfriend to DEATH.

If the law was working properly, he'd be alive.

It is like there are no moderate Muslims. They all seem to be extremist fanatics or suppoorters thereof, and no one urges calm. The level-headed Blacks pipe up and are immediately branded Uncle Toms, or worse, by the media and the outrageius self-appointed Black “leaders”. And the #1 soul brother in chicef is leading the parade (even tho he has never suffered a day in his life under any kind of disenfranchizement or discrimination. A perfumed prince raised in the lap of luxury, by white people, in suburbia, best schools, no sweat - except a nagging wannabe urge to be a street gangsta punk to live up to his wife’s and Pastor Wright’s expectations)

Black Leadership???

How about Allen West. Oh, I forgot, he is a Republican.

(Yes and he is a Republican that I would vote for in any election he chose to run in, including POTUS.)

As a black man I think that we as individuals need to responsibility for ourselves! Why do we need someone to lead us? I'm doing fine without Jesse Jackson (sucks) and Alan West (great man)!

I never hear the word white leadership!

There is big money in being a professional black (being black for a living)

There is no money in being a black leader

———How about Allen West.——

The man is a leader. He in not a leader of blacks.

He is a dedicated professional but not a professional black (ie black for a living)

Mentioned on another thread that if charges are not filed family can not sue...Does anyone know if that is true?
Are we in a “follow the money” scenario?

The civil rights movement has always been about communists using blacks to shake down whitey for more and more loot through the electoral process.

Now that they have reached he end of that trail, they will come after the money with arms and lawyers.

Yep, he is a leader.

I am old and there are few people I would follow into battle. He is one.

He is a great speaker. He is a great patriot. He is destined for great things, possibly not in politics.

Even if Florida prosecutors never bring criminal charges against George Zimmerman, can Trayvon Martin’s family sue Zimmerman in civil court?

This is the latest question being asked of Trayvon’s parents, even though they appear to be focused on finding criminal justice for their son. Nonetheless, it’s an important one — and one this blogger would ordinarily answer with a resounding “yes.”
