The thing is, why are BLACK PEOPLE the ONLY GROUP that should NOT look to their ELECTED SO- CALLED LEADERS for ANY kind of help, like ALL of the other groups you named ? that's a very DUMB AZZ statement you made. Your NOT BLACK anyway. We BLACK PEOPLE are the ONLY ones that are told that WE DON'T NEED LEADERS.... you can go straight to HELL with that. Malcolm X---(20:) since slavery, the american white man has ALWAYS kept some HANDPICKED NEGROS who fared much better than the BLACK MASSES suffering & slaving out in the HOT fields. The white man had these " house" & " yard " NEGROS for his SPECIAL SERVANTS so he threw them more CRUMBS from his RICH table. He even let them eat in his kitchen ! He knew that he could ALWAYS count on them to KEEP " GOOD MASSA" happy. He didn't even need to instruct the TRAINED BLACK PUPPET.

Everybody but everybody can & do make DEMANDS of their LEADERS, But there's a sickness call HATE THE BLACK MAN, That says BLACKS are the ONLY GROUP that MUST NOT ADVANCE AT ALL COST. So, for anybody to say that BLACK PEOPLE don't NEED OUR LEADERS..... there nothing but a dam ENEMY!! Sounds like something a Jew or liberal will say.

Start leading yourself. Be your own leader and think for yourselves. Then when you look at 'leaders' you'll see the same thing I do: white or black, they're all greedy criminals. Is that really the kind of leader you want?

WTF. Why do you need someone to lead you? Grow up and take charge of your own life. Don't expect others to improve your situation. Only you have the power to do that.

PS BW, Why don't, you stop being so DAM HATEFUL towards your own BLACK MAN. You sound like
