RETURN ON INVESTMENT
When you listen to Black people who believe that a "favorable Black person elected into power" IS IN ITSELF "advancement" - you merely need to watch as this person compromises himself in defense of this venerated official.
I will use my hallmark of an example of what I am talking about using Bayard Rustin - the father of the modern day "Black Progressive-Fundamentalist Movement".
Rustin said in the 1960's that "Black people will prosper once we get control over our communities by elected Democrats, into as many seats of power as possible to push PROGRESSIVE PUBLIC POLICY".
Minsk - this is not a transparent plan for the best interests of the Black community. It has permanently fused a METHODOLOGY (Progressive Public Policy) on to the Black experience. Thus all of our problems will be made to have a PROGRESSIVE fix. When we run across progressive dominated cities like Detroit and Chicago yet Black problems remain with a fury - they will simply EXPAND THE SCOPE of their struggle. The school board that they used to protest against will be walked past, so as not to offend their friends, as they make their way to the state capital or the US House where the Republicans reside.
RETURN ON INVESTMENT requires that someone who is looking out for the BLACK DEVELOPMENT INTERESTS to act as the Trustee of the cash balance, NOT as an echo chamber for the advocates of the METHODOLOGY that is popularly assumed to be the means to make the balance grow.
When it comes to the need for quality schools so that the next generation of Black kids can be transformed into our "Professional Service Agents" in support of the High Standard Of Living that our community seeks..............if you do not hear people detail
1) WHAT THIS STANDARD OF LIVING IS
2) THE HUMAN AND FINANCIAL RESOURCES THAT WE NEED TO ATTAIN AND SUSTAIN THIS
3) A DISTRIBUTION PLAN BY WHICH ALL OF THE INSTITUTIONS THAT WE HAVE IN OUR COMMUNITY MUST DO THEIR PART
4) A TIME FRAME
5) (and most importantly) A TRANSPARENT MEASURE OF IMPROVEMENT
6) (and secondly most important) A MANAGEMENT CORRECTION LOOP in which courses are corrected and PEOPLE ARE FIRED FOR FAILING BLACK PEOPLE after receiving our investments of "The Black Community Development Consciousness and the Equal Black Ballots) ..............
Then not only will you NOT receive a "Return On Investment" - you won't have the tools in place to measure your losses.
This leaves the people vulnerable. After being compelled to attach their EMOTIONS to a cause yet they still FAILED, when the EMBEDDED CONFIDENCE MEN take the stage again - they merely need to tell the masses that THE ENEMY is the reason why "WE" failed and that we need to stay united and fight them again.............after they make another deposit.
