The Failure of Black Leadership and Black Organizations in the 21st Century


Written By: Jalani Yusef Imhotep Kadesh

“In the Age of Information Ignorance is a Choice”. This for the most part sums up what I am about to say about the State of Black People Worldwide. We live in a time where you can store, access and retrieve more information in a device that can fit in your pocket that would have taken up entire buildings just 30 years ago. We live in a World where Technological Advances and Breakthroughs are happening everyday in the fields of Science, Energy, Transportation, etc… Companies like Google, Facebook, Apple and Twitter constantly pushing the envelope in the areas of Social Media, Marketing and Business. Scientist now have the ability to replicate your memories and by the year 2030 they will be able to download your consciousness on a computer chip at the point of death. Sounds familiar (if you have seen The Matrix, Lucy, Surrogate or Transcendence)?

New Billionaires are rising up all around the World, yet in Black Communities Worldwide we face the same if not worst situations than ever before. Black Power and Civil Rights Leaders and Organizations have not kept pace with an ever evolving Political and Economic Landscape. In a time where we have the First Black President, the Black Agenda has been pushed back a hundred years in favor of Gay Rights. Black Churches have become all but irrelevant to the Black cause. Instead of asking for 65 million dollars to build a bank, credit union, or school, Churches and Pastors asking for a Private Jet. Thy Shall Not PimpThe Black Church has collected some 400 plus Billion Dollars in the last 30 years, but there exists no viable black bank, black school, or black anything for this matter. Black unemployment is at a all-time high. We provide free labor for the Prison Industrial Complex. The gap between the Black Upper Class and Middle to Lower Class is at unprecedented numbers. Rappers, Athletes, and Entertainers could care less about a Black Agenda in the wake of more Black Men and Boys being murdered by Police all over the Country. We have been duped by Black Leaders, Organizations, and Churches into keeping the Faith, going to School, and Working Hard is still the way to Progress and Success.  While a teenage Bill Gates created Microsoft, a teenage Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook, a teenage Steven Jobs created Apple, etc… Black employment at Google, Microsoft and Facebook is less than 1% and only 7% at Apple.

Black Resistance Matters

In the Age of Information you get Paid for using your Mind not your Hands. While every other Ethnicity is closing Ranks and bonding Together daily, Africans Worldwide are becoming more Divided. Brother Malcolm said it best 50 years ago. When we come together leave your Religion, Fraternal and Class Affiliation at home and focus on the one thing we have in common…and that is we are Black. In every Community, in every State, in every Nation we must Develop, Build and Maintain a Black Agenda. We must Develop and Build Think Tanks and Investment Clubs. We must Think Black, Buy Black, and Be Black for the sake of the present Generation and Generations to come. If we don’t we will be but a Memory.

Until Next Time We Meet…

  1. we are all we got !! ,
    when any National gets hurt ! or go’s to jail or gets killed, that Nationals country wants a full investigation.. of what happened to its citizen,
    and if they are not satisfied then theres a problem..
    what do you think would happen if an italian a Russian or an Israeli person gets killed?
    what do you think America does?
    well this country makes sure that there is a through investigation, and some recompense is made or jail / imprisonment is enacted, with recompense in most cases, thats what happens even up to a month ago with a foreigner, who was put in jail and his country immediately sent to get him out of jail and brought home safely !!!

    thats a nice thing to have going for you when you have a whole country who got your back
    look at what we as a people have to endure …
    1st we dont have any sponsor ! 2nd we dont have any country that has our back… remember when jesse jackson went to get these white citizens from being captives in some foreign land 10 15 years ago, they didn’t know if these people were going to kill them or whatever but when jesse jackson showed up and they seen that it was him every single white woman that was there to be saved said “”OH” IT’S YOU”… i would have told the captures fuck em let them stay !!!!
    we dont have that luxury we dont have an official country that will come to our aide !! i would like to see proof ,
    when we get beat and killed no one will speak for us not even the UNITED NATIONS
    will say a thing, but if anyone gets killed and that person has a country that he or she is attached too a country then the united nations makes a case of it and THE WORLD DOES TURN, money is paid out to the families and life goes on…
    This world have no sympathy for black people at all ,
    we are laughed at here in this country from morning to nite ,we are the wretched of the earth and they the dominate society makes it plain to see that this is what they do as a national past time…. meaning that they run rings around us with their form of systematic institutional racism that seems so normal that most people take it a game that they all participate in COLLECTIVELY and they have MASTERED it is excepted as the norm of this society … we have no advocate, no one to help us at all, we are the blame for anything you can think of … thats the american way and a part of the Game being played on us daily and we cant fight it all !!!! so when our women are being beaten on the highway by an albino beast called a cop you best believe that it was the women’s fault and thats how they will report to you, and cops who publicly murder a man on the streets of new york ,
    and a 7 year baby girl sleeping in her bed is shot and killed by a cop and the world says NOTHING And once again the cops go free….not one thing will be done to help to save our lives because they have made it so that BLACK LIVES DONT METTER’! no matter how old or how young you are our lives are meaningless this is a sick society and place to be in !!! NO ONE HAS OUR BACK!! and expendable people can basically do anything they want to do to us ,and nothing or no one will say or do a thing,, they kill us ”they put us in jail” and prison” !!

    they got fighting and killing one another as well so.. what else is there for us to do ? we wont come together ! and when ever we do”.. they will always buy a snitch, set us up and murder our leaders .. thats their M.O. ….
    MALCOLM X TAUGHT US TO GO OUT LIKE MEN ! ….. AND THATS FINE BY ME …WE HAVE NOTHING ELSE… ANYMORE… TO LOOSE !!..
    SCRIPTURE SAYS FOLLOW NOT THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST… ”LOL”.. AND WE BLACK PEOPLE ARE FALLING OVER EACH OTHER TRYING TO FOLLOW THE BEAST WITH US BLEACHING OUR SKIN BLEACHING OUR HAIR BLONDE AND YES THE NEW THING IS COONING ITS BACK !!!!! AND SOME ARE EVEN BOASTING ABOUT BEING A COON.. AND OUR DEPRESSION IS SO LOW I DONT THINK THAT IT CAN GO ANY LOWER.. AND SO IF IM GOING TO GO OUT !! BECAUSE ITS JUST A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THE COPS START KILLING AT EVERY STOP THEY MAKE , ESPECIALLY OF YOU (TALK BACK) THEN GUESS WHAT ? IM GOING OUT FIGHTING .. FUCK IT I GOT NOTHING ELSE LEFT…
