These harsh truths are not new…
“Now, the black man here was so-called free by Lincoln 100 years ago. The black man in America has an — has a purchasing power of 20 billion dollars. Now, and he’s educated.
If the white man can come here uneducated and as an immigrant, and within 10 or 15 years set up an industry that provides job opportunities and educational opportunities for black people, then if the black man, the black leadership, who has access to all of this money and has all of these degrees today, can’t use his talent and his know-how to set up business opportunities, job opportunities, housing opportunities for the black people the same as the white leaders have done for white people, then these black leaders need to get off the boat.
They’re not leading our people toward any kind of independence, but they’re using their positions and their education and their talent to exploit our people worse than the slave master did during slavery.” – Malcolm X
