Many people have asked me, “Where are your election videos?” An I just keep wondering, “Why do you want to keep reliving the election?” What is the way forward now? I think that is where Black America has been for the last 70 years. Stuck in the election years or stuck in the good ole days. Since the death of Dr. King and his dream there hasn’t been one definitive direction forward for Black America.
Yet lately I have been researching some of Kings speeches after “I Have A Dream,” they are truly almost impossible to find. Yet in this video I have posted below, I think you will find the words of the late great Reverend very inspiring for Black America.
Check Out the video and let me know what are your thoughts?
In the 45 years the data has been tracked, the unemployment rate for black or African-American workers aged 16 years and older has never fallen below 7 percent. The unemployment rate for black workers fell to the lowest rate on record in December. The rate fell from 7.2 percent to 6.8 percent in the month, beating the previous low of 7 percent set in April 2000. The bureau has data going back to 1972.
President Trump tweeted “African American unemployment is the lowest ever recorded in our country. The Hispanic unemployment rate dropped a full point in the last year and is close to the lowest in recorded history. Dems did nothing for you but get your vote! #NeverForget
Unfortunately there’s a lot of truth in that statement from the President. Minority voters have continued year after year to give there votes to the Democrat Party, yet under no Democrat administration has minorities ever reaped the benefits of supporting those candidates.
I will be the first to say so far, President Trump has dropped the ball on many social issues and cultural norms. Yet when it comes down to keeping his promises, strengthening the economy, brings back jobs and higher wages. The former Apprentice Star has been nothing, but money.
This is my all time favorite message delivered by the Honorable Louis Farrakhan. This isn’t my favorite message because he is preaching the gospel outside of his traditional Islamic sermons, but it’s my favorite because I allow this word to center and focus my life back on where Jesus intended it to be. Besides that I love the way he lays into the black christian church of today, we need this chastisement and unfortunately too many of our leaders are unwilling to preach to us the “Straight Path.”
Check out this video above and tell me what you think of hearing the Minister preach at a christian church. I think he should do it more often thoughts?
