A clear example of Black Leadership Failure at every level one year later after the murder of Michael Brown. From The White House of President Obama and his Administration to Black Mayors, Black Preachers and Black Organizations, who have done nothing to address the "Apartheid-like" conditions under which Black African Americans live in America in 2015.
Contrary to the refrain from the tragic Ferguson, Mo., shooting of Michael Brown, we know that keeping your hands up does not mean you will not be shot. Assata Shakur had her hands up when she was shot on the New Jersey turnpike by a State Trooper, Oscar Grant was laying face down on a subway platform when he was shot in the back by a Bay Area Transit cop, Sean Bell was executed in a hail of bullets by a half dozen N.Y. city cops while sitting in a car, and Trayvon Martin fought to defend himsel
Some people would call the demonstrators and those in support of them radical and trouble makers, but that would not at all be the truth. Blacks have been a restrained and a controlled people in these lands and in all the lands that took Slaves to build their empires.

The Institute of the Black World 21st Century decries the decision of the Grand Jury in Ferguson not to indict Officer Darren Wilson as yet another in a tragic litany of injustices that is fueling a spirit of resistance, righteous rebellion and movement building across this country; a movement primarily led by young people. We applaud the weeks and months of disciplined training, organizing, demonstrations and protests by young leaders that may well mark the birth of a new movement for social ju
Black Activists Comment on Washington Post Report that Federal Civil Rights Charges Will Not Be Filed Against Darren Wilson in Death of Michael Brown
Washington, DC - Activists with the Project 21 black leadership network say a new Washington Post report that the Eric Holder-led Department of Justice will not charge Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson with federal civil rights charges in the shooting death of Michael Brown is evidence that the time has come for healing.
I guess everyone knows by now that I am very disappointed with President Obama for his lack of effort to be a voice for the human rights of African Americans, as he has been for Israelis and Gay Rights advocates. In truth Blacks have been persecuted in this country under his watch, and it has taken – not the deaths of Black men at the hands of White police officers and the recent barbaric beating of a Black woman, but rather it has taken (after six years)
