Black Leaders, Class and Race

by James Jett

In Chicago, boys killing boys with everyone watching in present and on TV. I have seen very little concern from the people who claim they care. Where are Rev. Jackson, Rev. Sharpton and Mr. Crosby? Will President Obama meet in Chicago to stop the killings? Why, is the community so quite, they are not marching in the street, not many talking to the media, it is so quite, it seems as though nothing happened?
Screaming race, will not work in this case. It was Blacks killing Blacks! And, the student did not live in a rich neighborhood.
One of my associates says it because the student is black and poor Black families hate the intelligent members living in the community. I can believe that is the case, but I just don’t have any proof.
Class seems more likely when you consider how fast President Obama moved when his friend, Professor Gates cried race, when arrested at his home when he returned  from a trip to China.

Gangs in the USA: drug dealers in Mexico

by James Jett

While watching tv late at night I saw a program about drug dealers selling drugs to people in America and using the money to build, schools and living quarter for homeless Mexican.  Once in a while, when the moon is blue the liberal media will show or print an article about a Hip Hop artist telling how he builds or improve playgrounds and other facilities used by the children living in that community. Or about gangs helping when disasters occur in the neighborhood..
Although, I have problems with the source, when it’s coming from drug dealers, or gangs, I can understand why the people in that village are so thankful for anyone that pay for the medical needs for the elders and the needed.
That why, I am searching my leadership training to understand, training that told me not to substitute anything for results when someone’s life is at stake. meaning: if four Ku Klux khans offer to help you pull a family out of a river, I will say let us get them before it’s to late!
A caveat, neither group obeyed the law to get the resources to meet the needs in their communities, they will not obey the law to take whatever come next on the list of things needed for themselves are Anyone else they deem worth helping..
Either you are the prey or you are in the way. They know you are afraid of them and they do not fear you. The troubling part, is they know you will remain afraid until you not only enjoy freedom but are willing to die for it!
