Like the title says. Imagine you were given the power and resources to fix the black community. How would you do this? What you teach the kids, what would you try to promote, what business ventures would you go in, etc?

Well I don't know all the solutions but this song points out a lot of problems in the black community:

one thing I can think of off the top of my head.

- PROPER education for the entire community with special focus on developing skills, self confidence, communal thinking, money managing and self reliance

Fix the schools. Make school uniforms MANDATORY

Abandon the welfare system. If a family has a stable job, then they should be kick-off of welfare.

Disable BET. Or atleast get rid of the programs that show Black Americans in a bad light. And create programs that will teach our kids and uplift them.

Make it a law that would fine kids for deliberately sagging their pants.

Ditto for underage girls that wear skimpy clothes.

Bring in the system of honor-killings for the weak, whitewashed, self-hating black people.

Improve health awareness.

Free health care to solve the problems that has been plaguing the Black community: heart disease/failure, high blood pressure, breast/lung/prostate cancer. AND ENCOURAGE PERIODICAL CHECK-UPS!!!

Invest in educational resources that will EMPOWER black people, not put them down.

But most importantly, this will not happen if we don't separate ourselves and form a true BLACK NATION. Too many people have the Stockholm Syndrome, and has fallen in-love with our oppressors. To accomplish our goals, we must do what the so-called Jews did, and LEAVE the nation of our oppressors to find a nation of our own.

Did you know that the Oklahoma Territory was suppose to be that nation, but Congress turned it down.

If I could fix the black community I would kick out all of the interracial white washed black people

Then I could make a call for black unit among brother and sisters

I would have all the black kids going to black school that teach about black history and including Africa to show the young kids what they came from and teach know to love them selves and to never envy other races

then I would call all the rich black people to put their money together to help build better neighbor hood for black people, that would include well funded schools with well paid teachers and computers, books gyms, and after school programs, music instruments for the kids

I would also ask those rich black people to set up a state wide scholar ship fun for blacks who have good grade but need money to attend expensive colleges so they donít have to worry about paying for school

then to fish it off I would ask rich black people to set up a entrepreneur fund for black people who cant get money to start up their own business

That just the way I would do it fixes me could try to fix the black community

These are good suggestions.

We must have Draconian measures to get the Black community back on track.

I would put some Black deadbeat Fathers in jail and teach the young kids some manners. Fact is, the Black community will NEVER straighten out because most of the parents are WORTHLESS to society.

drug dealers in the black community would be put to death (i don't consider marijuana a drug, everything else though, cancel it)! but on a side note if we are going to have people doing drugs, let's organize it and be real about it. there really is no need for brothers to be standing out on corners anymore.

kids would be kids again. i have to agree with khalfani, school uniforms would be mandatory.

i would require that some form of taxes be taken out of every check and sent to liberia.

every black child would go on a field trip to liberia, learn what its natural resources are, and i would set up some type of student exchange system with liberia.

there are 40 million african americans in the US. 1 dollar from each of us a month would be required to go into a WORLD BANK of our own, just like the IMF or the WORLD BANK. overnight, we would become the sh!T!

in MARYLAND, DC, GEORGIA, ALABAMA, and MISSISSIPPI, our spending pender is more than that of whites.

1.) Fix the schools in those districts.
2.) Bring more black owned businesses that hired people in the community.
3.) Buy up the commercial & residential properties & make them productive instead of abandoned buildings.
4.) Encourage non profit organizations to set up in those communites.(the ones that help people start businesses, help battered women, teach/give parenting classes, help people w/grant writing etc).
5.) Get the people in the communities involved when there are big projects such as signing petitions for the parks to be upkept, etc, things along that nature.

I second that! With good education come the success, then it can be brought back to the community.

We do have success that's not altogether the problem & it's not guaranteed to fix the black community. Let's face it. Not all AA's will be middle class/upper middle class. We will still have lower middle to poor working class blacks & they will no doubt be in the communites that are more segregated (it'll be mostly us blacks). Once blacks become middle class they had more options than being in a black community. The ones that don't have that much options are the ones that normally are in predominately black communities. Beleive me, I'm w/you for higher education but higher education. It means more educated blacks (which is great) but it doesn't mean a stronger healthier black communities. Everyone won't be a doctor or lawyer. We'll still have blue collar jobs & those communites that consists of blacks w/blue collar jobs (which majority of black communites are lower middle to poor working). These communities need more than education. We need businesses, esp. ones that hire in these communities & involvement from the communites itself. But you're right, education will bring us a long way!

True that. Everything should be black, black owned businesses, etc...Everyday when i go out, and around, i see Africans and Arabs working to build their own businesses, doing well. With more structure like that, it'll definetely help build a strong black community.

Convert these million dollar churches into schools and trade/business institutions. Turn all these fast food joints into health food stores and or green houses. Take the gangs back to their original purpose protecting the neighborhoods...people should be able to travel the land without worrying about rape, gunfire and harrassment. free healthcare. NON interest loans in the black community.

Agree that many of the successful blacks move to non black neighborhoods. but I can name some predominately upper middle class or upper class black enclaves or suburbs.

Only genetic engineering can fix the Negro plight. This is many years away so we will have to suffer through their ignorance for the forseeable future. In the meantime they need to police their numbers. They should be given birth control pills when they reach eight or nine which is when the typical Negro female begins breeding.

Every once and a while, I read something so stupid and outrageous, it ensues hilarity.

Your stupidity in this post has caused hilarity to ensue.

Hey, Bozo
Why don't you go and o.d on some meth. That'll fix YOUR plight.
