The past few weeks, we've talked about some of the external forces that have wrecked havoc on African American society in America.  From federal, state and local legislation, formal and implicit business policies and practices, and willing complicity and willfull ignorance of much of White America, African Americans have been subjected to disenfranchisement, discrimination and oppression in almost every aspect of life.  These are forces we have little control over, and we fight to bring these truths and their impacts to people's knowledge.

But there are issues we face within our neighborhoods that are within our power to change that would serve us well, regardless of the outside forces.  These issues may not change or affect the outside forces at - in fact, would really have no bearing on them at all - but they would return us to a quality of life that we seem to have lost, and at one time served to sustain us through times much more violent and desperate than these.

So today on Coffe, Current Events & Politics, we're going to begin a discussion about addressing some of the internal dysfunction in our neighborhoods, in order to find out how we can turn them around from the inside.
