The Ten Worst States to be Black in America; (Low Levels of Home Ownership, High Unemployment, High Incarceration Rates, ...)
08 New Jersey
03 Rhode Island
Of these states, only Arkansas (at number three) is on the same site's list for the Least Educated States in America.
I guess the disparities between races cannot be solved by "education" alone.

Since today was Thankgiving - we were offered the more special Pig's Feet & Doughnuts.
(Ummm, no. I passed on this delightful dish but watching several generations of Louisiana Creoles devouring this combination makes me think that this may be the next big thing in regional ethnic meal combinations. Or, maybe NOT.)

Unless you're ready to violently overthrow an oppressive institution (The only way any REAL change has been brought about throughout history. I'm not advocating violence but when you are not protected equally under the law, those who administer the law must be removed.) - your collective pennies have little power to accomplish anything at all.
Unless you are planning on using the money you would have spent on creating wealth, goods or services - your pennies are better off with those who will not continue to be subjugated members of a debt-ridden consumer class.
Unless you are willing to spend the money you would have saved on that new flatscreen you've been eyeballin' at a Black-owned business - your pennies are worthless.
Unless you are willing to use the money you would have saved on the improvement of your credit, paying off of bills, having a savings account and investing in your children's futures - your pennies will remain pennies for another generation.
Unless you are collectively using that savings (Which you won't - those low-priced Beats By Dre at Target are just too irresistible.) to create better institutions which better serve your own communities - your pennies are not even worth their weight in copper.
Unless you are willing to use the money you would have spent on helping people you actually know - your pennies can stay in your pockets.
Unless you are going to do more than boycott - BOY, STFU and become a man.
(Not you - but everyone else.)
How do I encourage my crowd at the club to spend more money, dress better, prevent fights or even shape the outcomes of local elections or volunteer at local charities?
This series on the National Geographic Channel shows many of the methods I use to maintain a safe and profitable business.

(BTW - I don't think Chris Brown is correct in his views (Not in the sense that he thinks he is.) but I do like that he questions the MSM. There are at least 16 vaccines in development for Ebola/Marburg/Reston (SciBX) while the WHO, NIH and CDC are left scrambling for answers.)
Am I worried? Nope.
Will I try to remain informed? Of course.
But as far as all the hyperbole, conjecture and opinion..?
I think I'll wait for the Michael Moore movie.
