Cultivated Ignorance is the new slave master in the African American community in 2018.
As I write this great truth concerning apathetic African American Leadership, it comes with great pain. As a child, I learned early in life everything has a price. As an Adult male and father, I understand the power of those words. Unfortunately, African American leadership has failed to realize or cultivate this life principle collectively. African American Leadership has been unable to understand "no one is coming to save us." Since the end of the Civil Rights era, the African American community has regressed into a sorry state of social, civic, and economic co-dependency. The African American Religious, Educational, and Political leadership ignorance are holistically killing the soul of the African American community. Before the post-Civil Rights era, we had a common philosophy of one love regardless of our economic status as individuals. Since then, we have regressed into a state of profound Ignorance perpetuated by self-aggrandizing African American Leadership. Today, an earned dollar lasts for 30 minutes in our community. Our families are broken and sick holistically. Our children don't trust us. Today, most AA Adult men can't read at a sixth-grade level or empathize with the family and community. Black Leadership is dead at the end of the Civil Rights era.
The difference between a good community and a great community is Leadership.
Today, Leadership is required in the African American community more than ever. The African American community collectively suffers not because of racism, poverty, or crime. The primary reason is self-inflicted Ignorance. I respect the African American religious, educational, and political leadership but hold them accountable overall for the blighted economic condition in the urban core. For more than 50 years, the Black Leadership has betrayed the African American community. The present African American Leadership cannot decrease the pathology in North Jacksonville, especially the Faith-based, educational, and political Leadership. The violent crime increase directly correlates to misguided leadership failure to understand and implement Community Engagement 101. No longer can the African American community allow leadership folly, religious fanaticism, and political cronyism to misdirect our resolve. The only way to improve the blighted conditions of so many in the Urban Core requires new Leadership. Open-minded cohesive Leadership, who are readers, lives in the community and are committed to our resolve,
The African American Economic Recovery Think Tank has developed a holistic economic roadmap impacting the Quality of Life in the urban core throughout Jacksonville North Bank. The AAERTT understands the methodology needed to affect these communities. Further, the AAERTT knows how to build a competent goal-driven team to achieve that strategy. AAERTT has four implementation components required to increase the Quality of Life index by 20 to 30 percent within 3 years in North Jacksonville.
Four Community Building Components -
1. Family Infrastructure (Home Economics Management)
2. Education based on the Arts, History, and STEM
3. Preventative Health (Obesity, Prescription Drugs Overdose, Sexual Diseases, etc.)
4. Cooperative Economics (Business Development and Ownership)
