They will be more free if they start supporting their black owned banks and black owned credit unions.

They will be more free if they form small investment groups and find things to invest in.

They will be more free if they stop blaming whites for all of their problems.

They will be more free if they learn how to create their own jobs.

The major problem as I see it is AA have become weak..they aren't the great fighters of the past..Today's AA is very obedient and submissive to "institutionalized racism"...and have now joined the fight to support White people's position in the world..handing over their pride, respect, economics, human resources,etc. The Modern AA have probably secured Whites for the next generation..at the expense of moving a coming generation of AA right back into slavery.

Excuse me, LION, but I wish to ask you about a point. We'll start from zero. How can we compete with the already highly industrialized production of whites and build a sustainable proletariat?

1-we start small investment groups (3 to 5) and find things to invest in.

2-save for ourselves and put another black in his or her own business

We build up our black owned banks and black owned credit unions whether it is through donations, mortgages, etc.

Or just get an account with these black owned institutions.

If they don't do right by helping the black community to creating black owned jobs and businesses, then we threatened to pull out.
They will change their tune then.
But we have to do it on a mass scale.

All 30 black owned banks in America have a combined net worth of 5 billion dollars.
But imagine if 30 million black americans put up just $500 each for our black banks? That would come to 15 billion dollars. That could be 500 million per black owned bank.

We need a black leader to do a big azz march, encouraging blacks to do this.

Sure..if AA are going to be SELF-motivated..vs..being forced by exclusion/isolation to love, respect, and support each other and the AA collective goal vs..an individual goal..
I don't see that happening...as AA don't protect their borders in any form and are more than eager to give away all their hard earnings (as simple as verbal upliftment/support to numerical/economic power)to outsiders.. what they should be keeping for themselves..
Another BLACK WALL STREET cannot be done unless AA are forced to unite or magically gain some self-pride, self-respect, and self-love...and
I doubt that will happen..

What will motivate Blacks to do that..if all that money doesn't stay within the community..it's a known fact..that too many AA ask for support..only to take that wealth and hand in right back into a White/Non-Black community..still leaving AA is poverty..There needs to be some guarantee that these AA will start marrying other AA and caring for their AA children and building a strong & prosper AA community or it's pointless.

That's why after building up these banks, we need to threatened to pull out if they don't do right by the black community.
A large march would work to our advantage.
AS for the IR marriage? Well it is a gray area. Anyone should be able to marry who they love.
Although IR unions are growing, it will still be awhile before it will have a tremendous affect on the black community.

IR unions for an underprivileged group is a death warrant..whether you like it or not..it is..and it makes every effort gain will be nulled..
You simply cannot change how the world operates by throwing around love...so yes..even with "love"...
you will be giving away too much resources to another group of people to ever gain a footing..and 50 more years from now..nothing will change for AA..
Hence why you never make any progress without making bigger setbacks..
You're struggling with self issue, individual wants vs...using the group to get there...it's not going to happen for you..
You're the only group of people who don't play by the rules and then wonder why nothing works for you..
Everyone else..keeps everything for their own..You people don't..you use anything you finally get to purchase an entry into another group..

With all due respect, race mixing is going to happen whether people like it or not. Not much we can do about that. But we can encourage to build up black wealth.

I respect your views....Reminds me a lot of what Booker T. Washington pushed for.

"At the bottom of education, at the bottom of politics, even at the bottom of religion, there must be for our race economic independence." Booker T. Washington

My motto has always been: The best way to reparate your ancestors of the past is through achieving financial freedom or economic stability today.
