Many on Black radio always wonder why the Japanese can get reparation and the Jews can get billions of dollars from America annually, but never the Blacks that where enslaved by America for over 400 years and are still lagging behind today economically, politically, socially, and academically because of this. I even wondered why Pope John Paul II encouraged Catholics to treat the Jews better, but never the Africans who may even be one of the highest Catholic populations in the world.
The reason for this is that no one respects a man with neither money nor power. Japanese and the Jews have wealth, but Blacks do not because of centuries of slavery and colonization. They have purchasing power to buy politicians in any nation, lobby the United Nations, threaten nation’s imports and exports, and place even corrupt officers in distant lands to sway decisions in their favor. Blacks on the other hand, are basically living for sustenance in Africa due to corrupt officials favored by external wealthy forces and are voiceless in western nations due to discrimination.
Wealth is never how much you make, but rather, how much you can produce to enhance the life of your members and influence the decisions of non-members in your favor even from a distance. In order to produce, you must have access to resources. Since Blacks have been kept in a legalized racist position of generating wealth for others in exchange for sustenance, we must reverse that same trend to generate wealth for ourselves through the same legal system. We will never get reparation or be respected until we generate wealth for ourselves in the eyes of the world legally.
America, along with the west, is a nation of law. Those who have the resources to buy, hire, and interpret the law ultimately control or influence wealth politically, socially, and economically. This is why the Jews, Asians, and now the Hispanics are been respected, but never the Blacks. What Blacks in the West must do is to form or transform the main purpose of their organizations towards hiring young Black lawyers straight and fresh from Law School. Their sole purpose is to take any and all civil right cases that deal with racism, racial profiling, police brutality, and employment discrimination at a fixed salary.
These lawyers should be expected to win at least 80% of their cases to be retained annually and get a set commission off their victories. There is nothing as sweet as becoming a wealth receptor from the very situations that are designed legally to keep you as their wealth generator. I recommend Black lawyers because it is self-employment, they can relate to the abuse, it creates a love of serving your people, and increases the belief that we can financially enhance each other’s careers. Moreover, others usually do not fight as hard if they take the cases at all or they settle for a pay off rather than allow your victory to become law that can be referenced by future Blacks against old slave laws still used to hinder them.
The rewards from many of these cases are usually in the thousands and millions of dollars. This money can be used to hire more lawyers to win more money or be used to create farms, factories, and distribution centers. When the world realizes that Blacks are in the business of hiring lawyers to win cases, this will not only help to eliminate racism because they will be losing their wealth, but most importantly, they will be forced to change their way of life. Remember that people change not because they want to, but rather, because they are forced to due to loss of valuables. Factories and farms must be built to produces daily necessities, such as food, toilet paper, diapers, body lotion, hair cream, toothpaste, or body wash to guarantee sales and profits, as well as distribution centers to distribute the goods in every city.
So instead of waiting for others to determine when we get hired, fired, promoted, or our salary, we can hire our children and students to produce the goods, manage the distribution, and become customer services experts even at moderate pay. Remember, that your own penny based on your own knowledge and organization will always be sweeter than a degrading dollar. The sweet penny is the foundation of a people’s wealth through time.
