Reply to "Commentary: Today's Black Leaders Support Issues that Actually Hamper Our Progress"

I agree with some areas of social conservatism such as the fact pro-homosexuality is not beneficial to blacks. He talks about the importance of the black family, which is fine, and I agree...But to blame blacks for the consequences of cultural practices is wrong also. Blacks aren't the only ones receiving public assistance, whites get it more then they do with no backlash. Some of these same conservative churches criticizing poor blacks also survive by taking their money. What some black conservatives do is listen to these white folks preaching as if George Washington, the white power structure, and other whites are straight out of the bible... When they were in fact nothing but evil racist who invented the real welfare system whereby blacks are exploited and denied progress in favor of white only privileges. Then they pretend this has no bearing on anything.

So what if there are jobs, if the job market is controlled by racist whites what good does that do blacks...they have to be at their mercy and perform their racist dirt in an attempt to maintain a position. Just like the old plantation days. We need to band together to empower ourselves economically. However, if our women and children remain at the bottom in terms of being shown compassion and respect as opposed to white women and their offspring, we have no place to go. Also, since blacks are considered such a small fraction of the overall voter turnout I suspect that is why once blacks are elected they often start playing up to whites by acting racist.
