If this is what it takes to get Reparations then SO BE IT.
We as victims of America will accept "Visa, Master Card or American Express". We can take our payment in one lump sum or as is the case here - in a series of payments.
....as if to say, our own Black leadership have not been afforded the opportunity to serve the Black community. More so than not, our own Black leaders have chosen to serve their personal friends, themselves, and/or outsiders at the expense of the Black community!
Can't honestly say our own Black leaders, and/or other Black people in positions of influence, have not had a chance. Since our own leaders have truly failed to competently serve the indigent, the poverty stricken, the underclass......
........the indigent, the poverty stricken, the underclass, and/or others, are not going to sit idle while our own Black leaders and/or others in positions of influence choose to do nothing, remain incompetent, play games, betray their constituency, and/or move in the wrong direction!
Caucasians, and/or other outsiders are stepping up to the plate, namely because our own leaders have failed. Far too many of our own Black elected leaders, and/or other Black people in positions of influence are an embarrassment to themselves and to the Black community!
In my own life I've been a witness to the game playing, the sleaze, the incompetence, the selfishness, the treason, that make no mistake definitely exists within our own leaders and the so-called Black middleclass who praise them.
The neglect of the poverty stricken in New Orleans due to Hurricane Katrina,
....... Killer/Butcher King Hospital, are yet other realities, of very similar activity, as it applies to the ineptness of our own leaders, and/or others in positions of influence within our community who have failed to be ethical, responsible, etc.,....
.....and Caucasians, and/or others have had to respond as a means of damage control, to make the necessary corrections to:
A. Save lives.
B. Minimize the occurance of future civil lawsuit for damages.
C. Maintain, restore and/or rebuild the accredidation of a private or public institution, an agency, a business, and/or to take action to restore the reputation of good government, and its relationship with citizens.
D. Raise the standards to meet the requirement needed for federal funding, future business investment, etc.
E. Rid an institution, agency, organization, etc., of truly incompetent individuals.
F. Restore the integrity of an institution, an agency, a business, a city, etc. As the rating and integrity of a business, agency, organization, etc., falls, so will its support base, be the support base customers, membership, community residents, etc., etc.
G. Save a city, county, or other jurisdiction from any future embarrassment brought on by the incompetence of Black people, and/or other individuals.
.....to which the failure of our own leaders, or the void of competent leadership that exists in our own community has made it necessary for outsiders to make corrections to:
H. Save face.
I. Prevent an agency, business, or otherwise from losing its accredidation, or source of funding.
J. Restore or rebuild a reputation.
K. Save lives, or promote the growth of a community, as opposed to the contrary.
L. Protect the rights of law abiding citizens.
M. Prevent future losses brought on by multi-million dollar civil lawsuits for damages.
N. etc., etc!
