We at Cincinnati Change, look forward to your [Councilman Thomas] hearings and future legislation which will address problems not discussed everyday. We now have, in Cincinnati, the evidence of economic discrimination and look to the US Attorney General who knows the laws and looks for them to be enforced – from the federal level to the local.

Fred Hargrove, Sr., PE, MBAWe at Cincinnati Change, look forward to your hearings and future legislation which will addressproblems not discussed everyday. We now have, in Cincinnati, the evidence of economic discriminationand look to the US Attorney General who knows the laws and looks for them to be enforced – from thefederal level to the local.I am a member of the steering Committee of the National Growth and Fairness Campaign which hasreviewed past political agreements, laws, decrees, studies, governing compacts and their effects on thesocial, economic development environment prior to the Obama Presidency. The National FairnessCampaign has also identified past historic moral gaps. The National Growth and Fairness Campaign haschosen Ohio [and we Cincinnati] as a focal point of the National Fairness Campaign because it isMiddle America, and has demonstrated past and current innovations to address fairness and capacitybuilding, including state government minority business development programs, initiatives to increase thebudget for the African American Businesses, and the creation a 20,000 household federal solutions suchas the American Reinvestment & Recovery Program [as law].To date, we have held three sessions whose subjects were taxes, civil rights, and what worked. Wekicked off the series as a member of the National Community Reinvestment Coalition and based on areport dated May, 2006 called “Closing the Credit Gap and Expanding the Credit Opportunity: The CRAand Fair Lending Performance of Financial Institutions in the City of Cincinnati”. These sessionssupport Cincinnati Change in its plans to create a financial instrument capable of financing arevolutionary health care infrastructure based on established technology and licensed patents. It will becapable of supporting people with best practice health care and open source economic development. Itis tied to a comprehensive housing program that
Erases the Digital Divide
by embedding technologyinto homes and businesses locations throughout Hamilton county, with its headquarters in Cincinnati.If there is any way that we may be of help from Cincinnnati Change and/or from our National Growthand Fairness Campaign, please let me know.

50 years or is it 400 =.99% nationally or .4955% Ohio* of all business revenue earned by African Americans.What have been the ramifications and implications of these shameful, tragic figures on the economic health of black communities and the country as a whole?
This is a follow up to my telephone call regarding our concerns and hopes relative to the very fast moving AmericanRecovery and Reinvestment Plan (ARRP), now public law as of February 17th, the American Recovery andReinvestment Act, and its counterpart the TARP initiatives.We have created a grass roots campaign composed of practitioners who have a long term operational knowledge of past practices and are very familiar with the philosophies, strategies, approaches, programs and projects ostensiblydesigned to address the history and practice of discrimination towards African Americans, and subsequently otherdisadvantaged? (by some standard) groups.We seek not to have negative presumptions regarding the current planning or execution of the ARRA and TARP orthe soon to be proposed general budget. We seek to provide solutions gained from the hard earned insight intopotential enforcement of existing public laws, regulations and new initiatives and programs through the use of “BestPractices” See attachments). We have gathered this information from two recently held National Symposiums inCincinnati, and Cleveland Ohio and a third to be conducted March 9, in Washington DC, with more to follow acrossthe country.The National Fairness Campaign has reviewed past political agreements, laws, decrees, predicate studies,governing compacts and their relationship to the social, economic development environment prior to the ObamaPresidency. The National Fairness Campaign has also identified past historic moral gaps.
 
We have chosen
 
Ohio asone of the focal points of the National Fairness Campaign, because it is Middle America, and has demonstratedpast and current innovations to address fairness and capacity building, including state government minoritybusiness development programs, initiatives to increase the budget for the African American Males Commission,and the creation of the proposed American Reinvestment & Recovery Program and other federal solutions.
The National Fairness Campaign will hold Symposium “SESSION III” A BestPractices Review & Summary Recommendations to be Conducted at theMarshall Heights Community Development Organization Headquarters at 3939Benning Road NE Washington, DC 20019Monday, March 9th 2009, Washington, DC 10:00 AM - 4:00PM
 
 We do know as stated in previous communication to leaders of government that the African American in particularhas been "gamed" as shamefully and painfully illustrated by the sample information below. *These statistics are inreverse order. Data sources: U.S. Census Bureau, 2002 Survey of Business Owners and 1197 Survey of Minority-owned business Enterprises.Receipts per Firm 2002 1997African (Black) American $74,018 $86,479**Native American $133,439 $174,070Hispanic $141,044 $155,242Islander $147,837 $213,629Asian $296,002 $338,852White $415,974 $448,294Female $144,784 $151,129Equally Owned $271,660 $254,261Male $535,574 $583,371Publicly Owned $27,953,370 $26,633,646** We believe these numbers reflect, Fronts, pass-throughs, and other schemes calculated to get the“numbers”.
