the
Blackman Feed

in 21st Century
Amerika?"
Here's the idea: From city to city and coast to coast every Black person who is presently struggling to make endsmeet /the working poor/our working class masses, the unemployed, underemployed and unemployable; includingthose that are young able bodies presently dependent on some form of government assistance, let's build our ownpolitical economy based upon our skills and abilities (all of which that have been exploited heretofore). Then, wedevelop goods and services to sustain ourselves (food, clothing, shelter, energy, education and recreation) andeven sell / trade with those that have and are currently exploiting us. Is there a land owner in this world willing todonate land to this cause? We all migrate to this land area and cultivate farm land and build villages andtownships. Or are we too dependent today? Are we too helpless and hopeless today? "Can the Blackman feed(Save) himself and his family in 21st Century Amerika?" This is what these essays are about; looking at the life andtimes of some of the persons that made something from nothing for themselves and Black people in economicdepressions of the past. As you may not agree with the politics of all the persons and or groups I present, I suggestthat you "eat the meat and spit out the bones". My intention is for one major theme to shine through, "THEY WERE ABLE TO FEED OUR PEOPLE", and thus you should sift and filter according to your politics and nonetheless drawlessons from their life work in regards to the topic at hand.Finally, I cap off this compilation with some concepts that I believe to be of contemporary importance in FTP:FEEDING THE PEOPLE. I hope you will find something useful to making your contribution.RBG Street Scholar / 09-15-12"CLICK HERE FOR THE MULTI-MEDIA LESSON THAT GAVE ME THIS INSPIRATION."Treble Army (Artist) - Serve the People (Song), Video and Lyrics
