    Default There are no real intellectual black community leaders.

    There are people with incredible intellect how may or may no have a respective technical field they cover. Obama and politics is one example.
    Tons of engineers and lawyers and so forth that are contributing to the development of america in a great way.


    but as far as leaders of the black community, we simply have a group of glorified complainers. There are no real intellectuals and none of them are contributing to the intellectual development of the world, the country or the community let alone themselves.

    Jesse Jackson
    Al Sharpton
    Louis Farakan
    even Cornell West


    are all smart people, but none of them really seem to be introducing new ideas into the world, which is what would deem you an intellectual. It's almost a situation when anyone can adorn the title for speakership positions. Voltaire, Marcus Garvey, Karl Marx, Thomas Paine, John Locke, are all intellectual leaders. They were able to introduce new ideas to the world or explain the world in a way it hadn't been explained before which posterity can there after use to model and reform society around them.

    As it stands the current black leadership is void of tangible ideas and innovation. There are a lot of community leaders on a local level doing astounding work, but the national names are black versions of Bill O'Reily. Paided opinions. Their claims to fame are usually cheesy one liners and above average to average rhetorical dexterity, but it ends there.

    It's adorable how smart TSA thinks he is these days and how he posts on a Wu-Tang forum to prove it.

    I'm speaking of community leaders

    the ones that are 'professional' intellectuals and speakers.

    There are, like my post stated millions of black genius' contributing to human development in America. but the 'intellectual leadership' or 'black intelligentsia' is retarded and profit based.

    The government kills and imprisons black leaders, and in cases where such can not be proven, we know the US government benefits off of their silencing. Case in point:

    - Malcolm X
    - Martin Luther King
    - Huey P Newton
    - Mumia Abu Jamal
    - Fred Hampton

    If I were to state that I'm not down with Sharpton, Jackson, Oprah, Farakan, West, etc, people would really dislike me. These so-called black leaders are nothing more than pimps and entertainers who made money off of black struggle. They do absolutely nothing for the black community in terms of its development and its future. When Obama took office, people believed that blacks would finally prosper. Did we? No, we didn't.

    When Trayvon Martin was killed, Al and Jackson were all over that like flys on shit and they made a lot of money because of that. However, when there's black on black crime, nothing's done because they won't make any money from that. This is the point, guys. The REAL black leaders died off and now we're left with men who pretend to lead but they're only here to made money. It's the business of struggle.

    Yup. They're media sensationalist that know what they have to do to get spins on white media so that do it and prosper off shitty situations.

    Black people are dying in chicago at war zone rates at the hands of other black people, i don't think that Trayvon Martins case was any more sensational other than the racial and thus commercial implications.
    The previous stock of leaders gave us mechanisms for defending ourselves from being cannibalized by white people through implementing new ideas and philosophies and living to actualize their benefits. MLK's speeches are studied in rhetoric oriented courses for masterful and tactful use of Ethos Pathos and Logos. His arguments were socratic in nature and challenged standing ideas tactfully. He made a difference.

    These other guys haven't added anything since. Surviving white people's racist onslaught is not enough. The walls of the house have been built by dead men and no roof has been added since.

    when black kills black - not much of a deal

    white kills back, then it's aww hell naw ,

    but murder is murda and should b stopped regardless of who's doing it



    this just shows the mind of some - that they hate white and popo




    'black community' should be protestin 24/7, 365 because of the violence in some 'communities', but naw, only rise up when its white and popo bussin they gats.



    food 4 thought :

    y was, mlk, malcolm, marcus garvey, clarence 13x, huey, and many others targeted and subtracted, yet...

    elijah and farrakhan was the remainder?

    do some study on this. it may be that those two in question are really not for the people and are supported by 'powers that b' for they own purposes.

    Nah man al sharpton is that dude he go to bat for niggas every time they some type of injustice,he even did a lil 90 day bid over Vieques protest, he found out his mother passed before boarding the plane to go to Florida for Trayvon rally & he still chose to go & sean bell, he help start a trust fund for that mans children... yal could talk shit about AL but i respect that man he came along way from gold chains & jogging suit

    as far as black leaders or leaders period, we as individuals need to stop looking for a leader & lead our selves we became to dependent on government, on the church or whatever system to help us as people when we can help ourselves & our community

    but we don't have a scene of community, immigrants & other nationalities come over here & prosper cause the look out for each other, like the Jewish community for example Boro park Brooklyn they got their own schools, hospital, EMTs, even police them selves in form of community watch/security BUT you look @ blacks & american born Hispanics in most hoods through out america are to busy fighting for crumbs, we are like fucken scavengers now I'm not saying that is completely our fault but it's about time we wake up as a people, we are to preoccupied with bull shit
