DO BLACK FOLKS NEED A LEADER?
That is the question we ask today. We hear alot of national and local rhetoric regarding the issue of "Black Leadership". On a national level we hear the conversation as it pertains to Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama being a "black leader". Is Sen. Obama a "black leader?" And on a local level we hear the conversation ad nauseam from an ex-one-term council negro who demands that you follow him blindly without question because he claims to "love you so" and claims to have a proven "track record in the community." What do you think? Do black folks even need a leader? Can the so-called America Negro survive without one? Are organizations like the NAACP, Rainbow Push and The National Action Network to name a few, what you Mr. & Mrs. Negro look to when there's trouble in black America? We are asking these very relevant questions and we want to hear from you.
