Forbes chief Legal counsel copyright 2015, Dob King holdings inc. 216-588-6700 one Toi it Aipa he for voter a atm amp met of &mx0pshootnss? take throne Black Man driving no matter your income station in life Church affiliation or fraternity membership what All Black men know is that if stopped by police while driving a knowing sense of caution is inherent. Brothers know to move slowly that anything perceived by the officer As a sudden Quot or a a unexpected movement May be hazardous to your health. Black men know that we Are not afforded the Opportunity that some White folks have to say any old crazy thing to the police. How Many times have we seen footage of enraged White folks a cutting a fool Quot during police encounters we be seen them during police stops being Overly demonstrative verbally abusive sometimes even getting out the car when instructed not to and in some circumstances slapping the officer. Let a Black Man try some of that foolishness and see what happens. The truth of the matter is that As a Black Man in the Back or front of our mind we know that a a any police Stop for whatever the reason can go wrong. Be it Rural Urban or metropolitan even if you do not have the slightest inclination to act in a manner that could be judged As distrustful the flashing lights and the Man with the badge and the gun approaching your vehicle brings about an extra wariness As to an expected outcome. It is a sad mental state to exist in a so called free society but it is the truth. History past and current has proven that the concern Isnit always just imaginary. Yes the police in almost All cases Are not our enemy and should never be an enemy unless we Are up to no Good. But As a Black Man in this world at a police Stop anywhere in the United states of America keep your hands in Plain sight and Hope for the economic racism by Benjamin f. Chavisjr. Nipa columnist despite ill intended efforts to do it for us. Black americans have a responsibility to define our own reality. It is a fundamental human right recognized and respected by the United nations. Therefore it is incumbent upon us to define without apology the deadly and debilitating manifestation of racial discrimination and injustice As a economic Why Are so Many Black americans still mired Down in inter generational poverty Lack of health care inadequate education raging unemployment disproportionate imprisonment the highest rate of housing foreclosures and housing discrimination the lowest rate of Bank lending and Overall exclusion from Access to sustainable wealth generation in every Region of the nation How is it mathematically possible for Black americans to spend More than $1.2 trillion annually in the United states and yet the overwhelming majority of the companies that make huge profits from the annual spending of Black americans do nothing More than invest far less than 1 percent of their profits Back into Black owned businesses and grassroots organizations throughout the country Why does the american Economy remain racially segregated in 2015? Why Are Black americans consigned to poverty and economic inequality the answer is amazingly simple it is the reality of economic racism defined As the intentional racial discrimination against Black americans and other people of color to prevent economic Equality Justice parity advancement and empowerment it is the systematic racial exclusion of Black americans and other people of color from economic policy making at local state and National Levels in both corporate and governmental entities and it is economic institutionalization of racial oppression stereotyping and profiling coupled with the ignorance of racial prejudice and hatred. Yes this is an admittedly Complex definition of economic racism. The matrix of complexity concerning economic racism however does not make it impossible to Challenge and to overcome. No one is bom a racist. We can and will eventually liberate ourselves from All forms of racial oppression and economic racism. We have not concentrated on economic racism As much As we should have because of the overemphasis on politics. But we eventually had to recognize that even our political system is controlled by economics and politicians tend to be More responsive to those who support their campaigns economically. The economic liberation of Black America will require establishing More internal Unity and More external coalition building and partnering with those who stand for Freedom Justice and Equality with their Money words and deeds. Organizing and mobilizing an effective movement to Challenge and overcome economic racism is Long overdue the perpetrators of racial injustice and discrimination Are always reluctant to confess or acknowledge the reality of these centuries old Phenomena. In the United states in particular there is a historic and contemporary denial of How race plays a determinative role in All aspects of society. As former . Senator Bill Bradley a no was fond of saying a slavery was americans original sin and racism remains its unresolved and we see that racism manifested in so Many ways. Today it now appears that the Only Way to get people to acknowledge racially motivated police misconduct against Black americans and other people of color is to have a video tape of the transgression. Thank god for the recent videotape of the police murder of unarmed Walter Scott in North Charleston . Sometimes As was the Case with Eric Gardner in new York City we can have videotape and Rouge cops still escape punishment. Racism in All of its oppressive manifestations must not Only be consistently called out and challenged but also we must be vigilant and diligent to make sure that we Are effective in the elimination of the undergirding factors that cause racism to exist and persist in the first place. Environmental racism is the intentional racial discrimination in the deliberate targeting of ethnic and minority communities for exposure to toxic and hazardous waste Sites and facilities coupled with the systematic exclusion of racial minorities in environmental policy making enforcement and remediation. As a result of the definitive work that we did on this Issue Back in the 1980s, today there Are effective and trans formative environmental Justice movements and organizations across America and throughout the world. One Day i Hope Well be Able to look Back and say the same about economic racism. Benjamin f. Chavisjr. Is the president and ceo of the National newspaper publishers association Nipa and can be reached for National advertisement sales and partnership proposals at conscious Black millionaires by James Clingman Nipa columnist Black folks have the ability to create our own conscious millionaires. We have certainly done it for others for a Long time now. Conscious Black millionaires by definition would most assuredly use some of their Money to assist the Black collective conscious Black millionaires would not hesitate to use their resources to help empower our people conscious Black millionaires would not be afraid to espouse the principles of economic empowerment and then use their Money to support it. This is not a pipe dream folks. It can should and must be done. To make real Progress we must move beyond rallies speeches protests philosophy pontification intellectual rhetoric without commensurate action and Mere symbolism without real substance. Every rational person knows that at some Point everything we do to Challenge injustice and to obtain the economic and political reciprocity we seek and deserve will require Money. Look at the amount of Money spent on travel and accommodations to attend All the marches and demonstrations of the recent past. It would have been better spent on Legal Battles in the courts and placing initiatives on local ballots across the nation. Who should fund the initiatives we take on to Deal with inequities and unfairness against Blacks who should Benefit from the dollars we spend to accomplish our goals As Ken Bridges would say a that be us the revolution will not be televised but it must be financed and we should Benefit economically from our expenditures and activities associated with our fight for Freedom. Currently our dollars Are benefiting everyone else As we run for Freedom As we protest As we demonstrate and As we conduct our conventions and other meetings around the country. I recall How proud i was when i attended the bring Back Black meeting in 2007 at the Black owned and operated Dudley convention Complex in Demersville . A Black caterer prepared our food and everything else that could be done with Black vendors was done. It was the same at our Matah conferences from 1998-2002. Every convention cannot do that but if we create conscious Black millionaires some of them would do what the founder of Compro tax Jackie Mayfield did in Beaumont Texas. He and brother Yusef Muhammad built their own convention Center. They Are indeed conscious Black millionaires and like others that i know they Are not Only taking care of their families they Are also doing a great Deal to help others via business opportunities and philanthropy. Many Are unaware that they helped Maggie and John Anderson in their efforts to get the empowerment Experiment off the ground. No fanfare just quietly and humbly paying it Forward the Way conscious Black people do. Is Compro tax preparing your return this year or is your Money going to one of those companies that do nothing for Black folks in return imagine the Progress we would make by creating millionaires like Jackie and Yusef. The Good news is that we can do it merely by putting our financial support behind the efforts of a conscious brother or sister who have demonstrated a willingness to sacrifice and walk the walk when it comes to the Overall empowerment of Black people. Creating conscious Black millionaires is one of the objectives of the one million conscious Black voters and contributors Campaign. We know that simply by issuing a Call for our members to Purchase one pint of ice supreme from Ashiki Taylor a company we would have a conscious millionaire. The same by buying one to shirt from a Black company one Book from Rosie Milligan one Pound of Nefertiti Coffee from Roger Madison a Azania marketplace one product from Keidi Wadu or Bob Laws Nam Askar health foods or even a couple of Rolls of toilet tissue from Freedom paper company. Cd Monys All this is not difficult. Those folks will use their resources to assist us in our fight for empowerment. They will do it because their consciousness will allow them to do no less. Conscious Brothers and Sisters consider it their a a reasonable service to support one another to contribute to one another a causes and to let their actions speak louder than their words. We have created a lot White millionaires by buying their products. Done to you think we should be Able to look at their work and see a reciprocal Benefit to Black folks there should be some collective gain. Have they Given us a return on our investment or have they and their friends and families been the Only ones to gain Stop supporting shyster hustlers and hucksters. Lets use More of our Money to create a a conscious Black millionaires. Imagine the possibilities. Go to , sign up and lets get started.
