I don't agree with these groups but I feell that their opinions are just as important as those that agree with President Obama. There is something to lerarn from all sides. George Cook AAreports.com. Author of the Kindle book Let's Talk Honestly: One Black Man's Thoughts $1.50

Where was the Black Panthers when the 16 year old boy was killed in South East DC on April 8th? Where was the Black Panthers when all the other black children were killed around the same area? I bet people thought black folks would awake up when President Obama was elected. I bet they thought we would start policing our own communities like the Guardian Angels do or even start becoming mentors to our black youth like Concerned Black Men do. Or better yet, start promoting positive hip hop music like Dr. Cornell West and Black Men Who Means Business do. It is not politically correct to speak about the mental mindset of a people. A group of black teenage boys stumped one black girl head in on DC Metro Saturday evening. What’s wrong with our people is mental. We are free as a people but Willie Lynch still has our minds. I went from being a homeless street thug to a professional and it was mentally hard has hell for me to do so I speak from personal experience. No politicians or no policy can help black people until we come together first and start helping ourselves. The Birthers, Tea Party and every other group in America come together to get things done yet we still stay divided and wonder why there is no such thing as a Black Agenda in America.

The problem is we as blacks have so much on our plate that we don't know where to start because we need short and long term actions like yesterday.....I feel the best way to cover most bases IS to start with yourself and at home,get involved in some way....I'm starting by attending pta,school board,and city council meetings....the more I go the more I can encourage others to go...at some point we should have a voice or running the group....and from there let that flourish......from home to street to neighborhood to city to state to nation and possibly the world.....prime example the school in I believe harlem that started small and have expanded throughout its entire neighborhood.....and for those "super ballers"......how bout buying or collectively buying a street or two and revive these neighborhoods.........
