Well, as I see it, we first had to get their jackbooted foot off of our necks (1865 -;
then, we had to get the ropes from around OUR necks (1920's-1950's); then we had to get our behinds from the back of the bus (1955-1965); then we got some of our 'foots' in the door (but remained the 'Spook who sat by the door) 1966-1980's.

So it has been a series of progressive steps, but we have had many of our 'steps' cut off by incoming groups, naysayers,the 'black Ward Connerly's, and such, White countrymen who found a different way to 'skin the cat; and 'others who took up our paths as their own, stepped into OUR shoes, who have talked the talk, but who had not had to walk that walk that got us/them here.
So what now?

We need our azzzes behind desks and in conference rooms where decisions can be/are made. How to do this? Many of these successful young Black ie. Sean Combs, Russel Simmons Jayzee et al.,have the mental toughness to make the market, but look at the commodity/substance of their product. In the 1960's, there was this philosophy that one needed to be in the system to change the system. Would that be a strategy to implement the final change? For starters anyway?
