The fourth and final installment of the Black Politics topic focuses on the Black leadership and its impact on the Black Community.
The 3 Questions
1. Do Black people need a leader?
2. What should the Black leadership and Black Community focus on?
3. Do you consider the current Black leadership effective, why or why not?
We have arguably had some of the greatest leaders in the 20th century and benefited immensely from their leadership and sacrifice. However, times have changed and the issues the Black Community faces are not as obvious and transparent. Our biggest enemy is also our biggest ally…Us. Battles over macro issues tied to legalese like voting rights and housing discrimination are still being waged by groups like the NAACP, however, it seems that there are precious few Black leaders that focus on internal issues within Our community that are not tied to policies. An example of this is the notion that darker skin is considered a negative even within the Black Community. Is it possible that Our leaders are contributing to the destruction of the Black Community?
