Paraphrasing Dr. James Clingman via DrMichael K Blanchard “We have leaders, voices, strategists, critical thinkers, problem solvers, etc among us who are totally dedicated to the collective advancement of African Americans. These are the ones who are usually sacrificed by Black people — thrown out because they are a threat to the establishment or because they are “too Black.” That frightens some people and, sadly, we play into that fear by participating in the demise of the very people who would help pull us out of our problems.” This was true in Malcolm X’s day and is still true today.
