    A community leader has caused an uproar with statements he recently made about addressing the mentality of some in the black community. Robert Woodson, is the founder and president of the Center for Neighborhood Enterprise. He is one of the very few black leaders today who are interested in solving the problems in the black community, rather than blaming others. He posed a few questions that I hope will make some of these race baiters think.
    “I tell people, what is your solution? If all whites tomorrow were to move to Canada and Europe, tell me how it would affect the black on black crime rate, how would it it affect the out-of-wedlock births, how would it affect the spread of AIDS? How would it affect those issues?” he asked.
    “What I’m saying to Black America, we must stop victimizaton. We must stop complaining about what white folks have done to us in the past. We must go into ourselves, as Dr. King said, and find indelible ink — our own emancipation proclamation.”
    “Young men who have been to prison…if they can drive, it means they can drive taxicabs in high-crime areas. My point is, we should be using all of our energy to try and promote innovative approaches to poverty rather than just trying to find excuses. There’s nothing more lethal than a good excuse for failure — institutional racism, whatever that means.”
    Woodson is speaking out about how government anti-poverty programs have made poor people a “commodity” for “a professional class of providers.” Woodson explains that there’s currently no incentive to reduce poverty:
    “The problem is, the majority of the money that is employed to address poverty is invested in people that are outside of that zip code — professional service providers. They ask not which problems are solvable, but they ask what problems are fundable.
    “They are answerable, not to their customers, the poor — they answer to those who provide the money. So the conflict here is really over who controls the means of providing monies to the poor.

    That's a good point that the welfare workers do not live in the neighborhood.

    I would add that the Democrats are run by one percenters like Hillary Clinton--who made about $25,000,000 last year.

    He will be castigated, berated, and ultimately, shouted down. This type of thinking simply will not be tolerated.
