The Black Accountability Project
The promise of Martin Luther King's dream connected to the civil rights movement has never materialized for many Black families in
Our communities are dividing as new and old segregated class divisions expand across the American landscape. No one is being held accountable for the pathological political culture of black elected officials caring more about themselves than the people that elected them. The culture of gangster rap, incarceration, drug dependency, teen sex and violence taking control of many black communities. A culture were Black women are dying of AIDS in record numbers, while cancers, hypertension, and other diseases kill us at alarming rates. Agencies outside our communities receive the lion share of health prevention, education and treatment dollars. The reality is, black institutions, black political leaders, such as the Congressional Black Caucus, sports and radio personalities, black preachers, social services organizations, Federal, state, and local governments, the Democrats and the Republicans are generally failing black communities.
National groups like the NAACP and Urban League and dozens of national black organizations are supported by wealthy white corporate donors who urge these organizations to stay clear of grassroots organizing and real economic political development - This must stop.
It's time for Black accountability, its time for change.
