Thank you...quote:No one here and no one on that panel including Cornell who recognizes and spoke to the deep love for Black people Minister Farrakhan has would suggest that Minister Farrakhan is against putting the fire out in our community, thus it only means his comments were that we should not play the fireman for America and try to cure it of its ills while we cure ourselves.
I'm trying to understand the Super-Negro thingy... Here it is, a whole symposium dedicated to how we can [better] "help ourselves" (because in some ways we aren't), but this Noble Negro Notion of Saving America, if not the world, becomes a counterpoint to suggestions that we "govern ourselves" - focus on administering directly to our needs and not relying on others to do so?
You have got to be kidding me...
At the very least, after Katrina, a FEMA like Ministry of Emergency Relief should be the least of what comes out of the Convenant and/or the Millions More Movement.
