For Generations Black Leadership Like… Rev. Al Sharpton Rev. Jesse Jackson and Rep. John Lewis Have told us protesting, marching and voting was where our freedom lived.
Cities like Los Angeles, Detroit, Washington, DC and Atlanta have had Democratic Black leadership for almost 50 years… Yet in 2018 Black Wealth still pales in comparison to other ethnic groups. Despite the desire and training to work, black unemployment is still double that of the average White American.
States like Georgia, have a black population of over 35%, yet they only receive less than 1% of Federal, State or Local government contracting opportunities.
Black Leadership, Democratic leadership, we truly thank you for your service…but it’s time for a change.
Political power is worthless, without economic independence.
