Beyond the standard observation of the racial caste system and Jim Crow I observed several other key points in the legacy of Black prosperity and struggle in this nation:
- Job opportunities is the "water" within which all Black development "swims" in. We as a free people are prone to migrate to where the jobs are - just like everyone else.
- When there is a need for goods and services to be produced in support of our standard of living - Black people have a long history of meeting this need
- The use of political graft and corruption was present in the past, is present now and will always be present. The task is to mitigate this force and instead build a more sound foundation built upon transparency
