Re: What the 4th of July Means to Black People

None of the holidays mean jack to us in reality. America is their creation and we were their non-paid folks who forcefully built this. The only white man I adored was Santa when I was small. Looked out that window at age 5 listening to Bing Crosby's "White Christmas", to see if I could get a glimpse of that sleigh with eight shiny reindeer. His cookies and milk were waiting for him as soon as he arrived. He ate them and gave me the most fabulous Christmases as an only child. White's enjoy...

Published on Friday, December 20, 2013 by RobertReich.org The Meaning of Decent Society by Robert Reich It’s the season to show concern for the less fortunate among us. We should also be concerned about the widening gap between the most fortunate and everyone else. Although it’s still possible to win the lottery (your chance of winning $648 million in the recent Mega Millions sweepstakes was one in 259 million), the biggest lottery of all is what family we’re born into.

Most people that have leaders; the leaders don't do a damn thing but lead them straight to the grave. Leaders don't do anything but garner lots of wealth for themselves. Most leaders are millionaires. Folks poor as church mice, eating out of dumpsters and scrapping for water have leaders. Where ISIS's is blowing up stuff, decapitating folks, those countries have leaders. Israel has a leader. Palestine has a leader. The 54 (however many) African countries have leaders. Pastors are leaders.
