Our Last Struggle To Win Equality For All Americans

Dear cyber friends & associates

I am proud to announce that my business structure has been approved by the state of Illinois. My business advisors from The Small Business Development Center and SCORE "Service Corps of Retired Executives" are working closely with me to find angel investors, venture capitalist, and silent partners. I am focusing on locating a place of business in my former community where
criminals chase me away 19 years ago. My higher power told me to go back and he will make all of my enemies my foot stool. I do this not to make a name for myself I do this because I love my people and my country. All those under my leadership will have access to me and I will talk with them on an individual basis. It's more then just business it's a life style. I am here to network and build healthy long term friendships to those who accept my hand of friendship.

The last struggle is for us to first learn how to work among our own kind first just like the immigrants that come to these shores. The Civil Rights Movement has done a great deal but I plan on dealing with capitalism ahead on. I have laid out my plan in detail in my book and I know it's a win win for everyone. I have no room for Passive spectators.

What I am trying to attempt has never been done in the black community. In order to understand my vision you have to remove your capitalist hat and allow me to educate you about Democratic Socialism on the local level. People will take me serious once I have a place of business.
Some say that black people just don't care about other blacks who live in the ghetto. I say well should we just sit back and watch on TV all of the innocent men, women, and children being slaughtered by senseless violence? People are afraid to get involved with this issue. I know how to put criminals on notice. I have a plan that will end gun violence, structural inequality, and poverty once and for all. All I need is a chance and for you to work with me. In order to understand my vision you have to remove your capitalist hat and allow me to educate you about Democratic Socialism.

In the debate about income inequality in America, many stories miss an important point: rising disparities are not just about investment bankers versus autoworkers. They're about entire communities of "winners" and "losers" As I mentioned in my book "The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, and Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America."

Lets start with Growing Gaps: Compared to 1980, the communities that have been hit the hardest are the low income black community "The Black Ghetto" and the hispanic community. According to census statistics They saw their median family income fall from $42,795 in 1980 to $38,941 in 2010 - a decline of $3,854. In large part, that's likely due to the influx of immigrants with lower educational and skill levels into these communities, primarily located in the Southwest. There was also a big drop in the small-town Service Worker Center counties, where the median family incomes fell by about $2,500 between 1980 and 2010. In those places, the story is mostly about the loss of small manufacturing. Those counties, many of which are fairly remote, survive because people in surrounding areas visit to do business. Without an influx of dollars from something else, like small manufacturing or tourism, times can be tight.

The Boom Towns, which grew dramatically at the beginning of the last decade, saw median family incomes rise by about $2,000. The big-city Industrial Metros bumped up by about $2,300. And the wealthy, suburban Monied Burbs saw their median family incomes climb by more than $3,700.
One way to think of the changes is this: The highest median family income in 1980 was the Monied Burbs at $55,688, while the poorest was Minority Central at $36,869 - a difference of $18,819. In 2010, the numbers were $59,404 for the Monied Burbs and $36,130 for Minority Central - a difference of $23,274.

In other words, the already-wide income gap between the wealthiest county and the poorest grew by more than $4,400 in the last 30 years in inflation-adjusted dollars. There are a few provisos that come with looking at the numbers this way, of course. Some places, particularly the Industrial Metropolis counties, have massive disparities within them. American big cities are full of examples of extreme wealth just blocks away examples of extreme poverty.

And remember 2010 was not exactly a banner year for the American economy. It was the depths of recession. These numbers may bounce back some in the years to come. But many economists believe what was lost in the recession may be gone for quite some time - that the "Great Recession" was structural in nature and Americans have to prepare for a new world that may look more like it.

So What Now?

One reaction to all these numbers may be, oh well! The numbers here reflect what happens when an economy changes and global competition rocks an economic boat that used to be steady. Maybe but particularly in the U.S., these numbers have real significance - and not just from the standpoint of equality and fairness. The U.S. economy, ultimately, is built on the fact that Americans spend money. About two-thirds of the economy is consumer spending. And these numbers raise a few questions. First, increasingly the weight of the economy is being placed on a few types of places for the most part, places that are better educated and wealthier. The buying power of other communities is not only struggling to keep up, it is falling behind. Is that best for a consumer economy? And secondly, what happens if the American socio-economic system, essentially, functions on two tracks? Will the people living places on the lower tracks stand for that and for how long? To learn more about my cause continue to read all of my journal entries. If you would like to join my cause I suggest that you read my book first and if you agree join my online groups include your first name and leave me a contact number to reach you.
