Why Blacks aren't embracing the Occupy Movements
I read this article on WashingtonPost.com and I had to share it. It is one of the best articles I have ever read on the subject. If you don't believe check out this little nugget...
"And despite their inclusive mission statements, major civil rights organizations and leaders appear to be selling out black America for corporate money. Beginning in the 1980s, for example, the tobacco and alcohol industries meticulously cultivated relationships with leaders of black communities. Institutions such as the NAACP, the United Negro College Fund and the Congressional Black Caucus have counted those industries as major donors — at the expense of the health of the black community."
I couldn't agree more.
