Reply to "Should Affluent Blacks Stay or Flee Blighted Communities."

...Indeed Black people need to stay and try to rebuild our own communities, and if this is not in the mix, the Black community will be facing extinction, sooner than realized.

Such a task must start with our own church community, professional community, men, women, and those with the most assets, and/or our own elected representatives. If our own elected representatives truly served the Black community, the constructive influence used would make the inner-city our own "Heaven on Earth". By and large these individual have the resources and influence that a lone individual of lesser means would not have.

.......for this course of action to work though, Black people must be more honest with each other, and stop all this back door cut throat self destructive back stabbing, sleazy, evil, truly selfish, and/or treasonous activity. This counter-productive activity more than anything else is making it exceedingly difficult for Black people to trust each other, have faith in each other, and is a very poor signal to send out to the many young people out there, who cry out for just one opportunity in a chance and constructive direction to make something of themselves.

...no other ethnic group is going to fill the void that Black people should be filling, and/or must be promoting for each other. Generally speaking, those who bear the cross, by and large, wear the crown.

In the event the Hispanics, Koreans, etc., take risks to invest in the "inner-city" it is to move their own people forward, and not Black people. Should you doubt this, which it is certain from what you have shared, Hispanics, Koreans, Arabs, Caucasians, Chinese, Filipinos, etc., etc., tend to look out for their own interests, first and foremost.
