Re: Why Not a Black Party?

James Wesley Chester ·
Professor Walters certainly has 'been there, done that'. It is clear the 'divide' begins even at the very early point of what the name of any organization addressing the issues of African Americans, should be. I don't believe a political party for this purpose is viable. Too many, and too diverse a selection of, issues. A PAC would allow the organizers to specify the focus of the organization. I say that because the organizers are likely to be the ones who bring the 'seed money'. Those who...

I agree James. The Right and the Media would have a field day with it being called The Black Party in the first place. It would be mischaracterized by the right in the media and the media would be more than happy to get the ratings they would receive by airing the misinformation.

Mr. Walters was part of the panel that convened at Tavis' recent forum on "the Black Agenda" that aired on C-SPAN last night. He discussed in greater detail his ideas on a "Black Party" and at the end, essentially said that the 'naming' of such a group was not nearly as important as what the 'mission' of it should be. After his explanation, I understood his perspective .. and couldn't have agreed with him more. Unfortunately, it still seemed like he was talking about what would be a...

The person who saw those children killed will NEVER forget that scene. He/She will probably suffer Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. The babies' faces will never be erased from the brain. Damn!! Satan's going to take over this country to the point it's going to be almost impossible to live here if skin tones are brown to dark brown. Whatever thrill there ever was, it's gone living in America as a "black" person.

Michael, listen, by really giving more, $$,$$$,$$$, you will exemplify a spirit of generosity in how we help one another and connect with one another. You want that?! Meet the challenge like a great man. By giving greatly, you will emanate real care to all. You still get to keep your millions and millions, but now you exemplify fatherly care to your people by creating institutions, for example, that economically lift up the youth. Will you do all that? If not, you should be bitch-slapped!

Hell, how about including Blacks in your business, creating jobs for Blacks, underwriting businesses that serve the Black community. Doing such will do more than just a shot in the arm but will create economic institutions Blacks can thrive on and he still makes a profit. The irony is, he does it all the time but with white people.

Jordan use to have a gambling problem a few years ago. I'm willing to bet his $500k donation might be equivalent to a few hand of Poker in Vegas for him. It's kinda funny that the NBA people I listed above who gave the most HAPPEN to have been married to Black women at the time of those deals they made. Coincidence? I don't know but has Jordan or Kobe done to help their community. Maybe we are just an eyesore to them now.

People think something will happen to cause the silent majority, the indifferent majority, the lethargic majority to become aware and active in the political process. So far in this primary season, only 11% of Democrats voted and 17% of Republicans voted, those are really pathetic turnouts considering the sorry state of affairs the country is in. The only silver lining a Trump presidency will have "so everybody can see how pathetic this country is."
