I would like to invite you the second presentation/conversation about the economic revitalization of Detroit and how you can play a part and personally benefit from the plan I created to capture the Black dollar start a cluster of Black owned businesses. WE can no longer ask. WE can no longer borrow. WE can no longer wait. WE can no longer leave the fate of our children and our households to government, employers and those who care nothing for us. WE must create a movement and what better place to do it than Detroit, the home of movements. The DETROIT MOVEMENT conversation will take place this Saturday at 3:30 pm at 5 E Gallery. This event is sponsored by Neo Minds Literary Services, Black History 101 Mobile Museum. Let’s move together! “In our time and in the time of our ancestors that have graced the city limits and the outskirts of Detroit, MI, we have never enjoyed educational, political, health treatment or economic equality. Black People in the southeastern region of Michigan are arguably the most systematically discriminated against group in the United States of America. Unfortunately this truth is very daunting if you just consider the discrimination coming from white America but one must also factor in the discrimination that comes from the second tier of white supremacy and white privilege which includes all other races especially Arabs, Chaldeans and Blacks. ” “Within this discrimination is an embedded array of sanctions against Black business by Whites, Blacks and other groups alike. The brainwashing that is included is based on oppressor created views of Black inferiority which is propagandized as complete dysfunction of business actions. The fallacy supposes that all or most Black businesses only possess the complete inability to manage, execute, provide adequate customer service, pay vendors, maintain posted hours, keep adequate stock, etc… While these issues remain true in some of our Black Businesses, one must take note that the percentages of these and other poor business practices are fairly level across the board from race to race and gender to gender. However, as an exception to the rule, most races are taught how to do business, whereas, in the U.S. Blacks systemically kept away from the Black race by means of inadequate materials, technology and educational systems and opportunities. To go into further detail would be to belabor a point in which is very obvious and commonly viewed by those who have honest vision and the skill of analysis.
