    Black Business


     


    This month started out with Black business so let’s end it with Black business.   Many ask why is this a topic and why should this be important to them and us as Black Business.  Some have said the only color in business is green and green from whomever and wherever they can get it from.  We have even had some to say that the only thing Black people need to improve the plight of the entire people is more business.  Let’s talk about those things today and explore them a little deeper

    OUR COMMON GROUND :: "The Urgency of Thinking Black" with Dr. Tommy J. Curry

    in Politics Progressive

    "The Urgency of Thinking Black"
    A Conversation with Dr. Tommy J. Curry


    “The Negro, in the universities and colleges of Europe and America, has to do his thinking and his reading in…the white man’s language…Our environment makes us think white, and some of us think white so persistently that we haven’t the time to think Black. I urge upon you…to help, with voice and pen, to hasten the coming of the morning when Negroes all over this broad land will wake up to the importance of thinking Black. 
    John Edward Bruce—“The Importance of Thinking Black”—1917


    • WE SUFFER POLICE MURDER, POLITICAL STRANGULATION AND THE REIGN OF WHITE CONTROL
    • WE LIVE IN A POLICE STATE.
    • THE CONFEDERACY IS RISING ACROSS THE LAND.
    • THE WAR WAGING AGAINST POOR PEOPLE.


    OUR reconstruction and redemption as a people will only come when we start THINKING BLACK.

    OUR COMMON GROUND :: " The Matter of White ManNess: The Bad Apple Argument NOT"

    in Politics Progressive

    OUR COMMON GROUND with Janice Graham


    Tonight:           " The Matter of White ManNess: The Bad Apple Argument NOT"

     police misconduct, college students singing songs of lynching Black people or elected officialswe are quick to defend the system as a whole and say that these are just examples of “a few bad apples”. We submit that such arguments are ‘bullshyt’. These problems are definitely systematic and "the bad apple arguments" do not pass the test of logic. 
    Does not a rotten apple pollute all the apples in the crate ? Or, is their bacteria in the crate which infects all the apples ? This racist behavior living in a “specialized white male culture’ living off of white privilege and supremacy is impossible. It pollutes and empowers whatever real or assumed power they are granted. Our children die and live by this system. Our tax dollars support it.
