This Bothered Me About The Starbucks Incident!
The two men arrested at Starbucks last week are members of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. (Ques, Q-Dawgs, Omegas), as am I (Pledged Jackson State University YE Chapter Spring 89 aka “Tutwiler”).
Why were these Black Men meeting with a White man to get help with a business deal?
Why weren’t they meeting with Black Ques or Black Venture Capital Investors, Black Bankers, or Black Angel Investors?
I believe it’s a dangerous mindset, that Intelligent Educated Black Men still have to go to White Men, because Black Men in leadership positions are Shucking and Jiving.
Does Omega Psi Phi Fraternity or any Black Greek Organization pool some of their money to invest in Black Entrepreneurs like these two Brothers or even our Sisters.
It bothers me, that the social and economic conditions of Black African Americans have gotten worst, according to the new Kerner Commission Report, completed in 1968 after Uprising/riots all over America and again in 2018.
These Black African American Organizations spend time and money doing great social projects, but refuse to use their strength to stop Black Babies from Dying (Black Infant Mortality), or create an Economic Opportunities for Black Entrepreneurs that could address High Black Unemployment, or demand a repeal of Bill Clinton’s Crime Bill that resulted in the Mass Incarceration of Black African Americans or stand up to demand the underfunding that leads to the Miseducation of Black Children in states, counties and schools Stop.
Where is our Manhood when it comes to standing up for Black African American Parents, Grandparents, Ourselves, Children and Grandchildren. I see little collective Manhood in action, when it comes to the leadership necessary to help Black African American People socially and economically compete. Both Courage and Cowardice are contagious! Hangout or be a member of one or the other, you take on it’s Characteristists and Behavior, which explains why I and so many others choose not to be active with Black Churches, Fraternities, Sororities, Civic Groups and Clubs who sit by ignoring the pain and suffering of their people.
Where are the Black African American Leaderships with the Moral Courage of a Dr. King, Fannie Hamer, Malcolm X or Ida B Wells Barnett? Where are the organizations with those type of leaders? I guess Sigma Pi Phi Fraternity (Boule) members are completely in charge of them. Shame!
The Black African American Community is hurting and suffering and these poor leaders want to boycott, protest, march and make speeches that solve none of our problems. Instead why don’t they collectively pool some of their resources to solve one specific Black Problem. Let me suggest (Black Infant Mortality). Can We Stop Our Black Babies From Dying? Men, who can not do this, deserves neither respect nor life, in my humble opinion.
Other groups have little or no respect for Black people, led by a group of Black men, who can’t protect their own babies. That’s how other groups view us, as we do our step dance (Hop) performing for audiences. We are Not Monkeys and our behavior should reflect our legacy of courage and greatness. Not whatever the hell this is now.
This should bother all Black Men. We must demand that our Black Leaders Stop Shucking and Jiving. Have the moral courage to lead, follow or get the hell out the way! So no Black Person has to be in a situation where the police are called for asking to use the bathroom.
