Over 100 Years Later, The Miseducation Of The Negro Should Not Be Relevant
C. Earl Campbell DA 3rd
I have read Dr. Carter G. Woodson’s book, “The Miseducation Of The Negro” some 20 years a part. First as a college student at Jackson State University and second as member of a a leadership program a few years ago. What is often not know is that Dr. Carter G. Woodson was a member of Omega Psi Phi, Fraternity Inc. and it was his fraternity that created the concept of Negro History Week and ask Dr. Woodson to spearhead the effort.
What saddens me today is the lack of Black Men with the courage to provide leadership for the Black African American Community. Sure, we have Black Faces in high places in all areas, but they have neither the courage or consciousness to address the current conditions of Black African American People. Our unemployment and poverty levels have not been this high since the Great Depression. Even President Obama fails to provide leadership, instead offering excuses about how bad it was, or would have been, exPresident Bush or the Republicans or it takes time. Leaders solve problems without excuses. He showed leadership when it came to bailing out the banks and auto industry. I guess it’s okay to let Black People Fail.
Black People should be held accountable for our own insane behavior of electing the same fail leaders who continue to not lead. We are mesmerized by great speeches that makes us feel proud and warm an fuzzy on the inside, while being unable to earn a descent living, pay bills or provide for our family.
I never like to offer criticism without offering solutions. I've written a Black Empowerment Plan entitled "The Quiet Resolution" or "TQR". I've submitted several business proposals to President Obama and his administration; a National High Speed Rail Transportation System, a renewable energy solution http://www.aheceEnergy.com, and a United States Postal Services Solutions that would have created million of jobs and turned this economy around. I have also written an eBook entitled "Reparations Now! For Black African Americans And Here's What We Want", which provides a 21st century strategy for getting and using Reparations for our empowerment that includes a dual strategy for self empowerment, incase Reparations are denied.
As a conscious writer, poet, singer, innovator, inventor and entrepreneur, I seek to collaborate without greed in an effort to uplift and empower Black African Americans. This can be done without the need to promote hate of others, fear or control. We are a mighty race of people with the ideas, skills and ability to change our current conditions within one year with determine and unafraid leadership who would rather die, than participate in and be rewarded for the helping to maintain our people in their current conditions. A majority of Black African Americans are asleep, unconscious or drunk with the wine of a Blackman in the White House. We have more churches, preachers, fraternities and sororities and nonprofits organizations than we ever had, whose role is the serve the "Poverty Industrial Complex" that help to maintain Black People in Poverty. Their leadership has a direct correlations to our current conditions.
