Source - Fair.org - Racial Differences In Wealth
My friend "Scared Ron" from the Booker Rising blog tuned me into this information represented above.
I have no malice what so ever for my friend "Scared Ron", who I have been debating against for years. I only have strong STRATEGIC disagreements with him.
While I credit my friend "Scared Ron" on his mastery of his large library of "oppression related" history I am critical of how he chooses to apply his technical knowledge for his marginal ideological agenda - at the expense of "organic Black development" which gets lost as a consequence of his distractions. What is POPULAR among Black Americans - per our present consciousness cannot be mistaken for what is EFFECTIVE at developing our people with the necessary "Organic Competencies" for us to change our condition via the "human resource development institutions" that must be governed to achieve this end.
There is no doubt that my friend "Scared Ron" and I saw two different points being represented in the chart above which represents relative wealth among races and their respective relationship topology.
Scared Ron used this information to make the case that historical "White Supremacy" created an advantage that White people continue to leverage today. His interest is to make a full historical documentation of this past so that he can leverage it in an argument in which he hears people attempting to deemphasize history's stacked deck as the source of our present problems.
I often tell my friend Scared Ron that he has an abundant amount of documentation that records every whip that our ancestors received upon their backs while they were enslaved.
When I saw the chart my eyes looked past the static and immediately focused on the fact that APART - the Black man and the Black woman possess $7,900 and $100 in wealth. Together that bond produces $31,500.
The very same Black person who's ancestors endured slavery.......
The very same Black person who today has to deal with racial preferences counter to his interests.......
......are able to do one thing that will allow them to SYNERGIZE value out of thin air: FORM A BOUND WITH THEIR COMPLIMENTARY MATE and then ultimately get MARRIED.
What other bit of information do we need to chart a course of action to initiate the repair of our people from within?
The Du Bois vs Washington Debate Reborn - How The Perpetual Chase For Social Justice Suppresses The Organic Competency Development Within The Black Community
As such my friend, "Scared Ron" - author of the blog "US Slave", has his eyes transfixed on the longer bar that represents "White Wealth".
The White married rate of $167,500 that is greater than its Black compliment of $31,500, thus the span of $136,000 are the "capital gains" that slavery, Jim Crow and civil rights violations have stolen from Black people.
Even after the most acerbic means of attack upon our persons and our economic/academic interests have been contained by the system of justice that now regulates all of the territory of this nation - those with this mindset seek to flip the system into one that provides "Redistributive Justice", as such their "Struggle" becomes a political struggle to change the system. "They Are Going To PAY For What They Did To Us" is the implicit operating order.
The problem with this is that when "Favorable People" step into the seats of power - as mayor or school board chief - for example - what was fantasized to be the new "king of the hill" that was going to preside over "redistributive resource allocation" is handcuffed with a new challenge.
That "favorable person in power" operates within the confines of a "Mission Accomplished Zone" that no longer produces the same capital assets (via its tax base) for the more favorable administration to act upon. The local zone that used to be the scene of a contentious fight for resources WITHIN is now transformed into a "cost center" that will receive its fill of "social justice" once the newly expanded national struggle succeeds at achieving that which the previous local struggles had promised as fruit.
If we use our skills of interpolation - we should be able to imagine that once the vaulted position of "Nationalized Social Justice" is achieved - the same outcome will be exhibited. This nation which is already insolvent with its $16T debt funded by capitalistic speculation that is over-leveraged -is likely to trigger the same "flight of capital" that had been experienced in the "Mission Accomplished Cities".
I would be put at ease in accepting your proposition that it was "RACISM" that triggered this flight of capital IF you were to show the slightest bit of intellectual consistency and note that the very same "flight" is likely to occur as "favorable people" take over the rugs of power as you make a national run.
(Note" There is no racial component to "favorable people in power". It is a reference to PROGRESSIVE-FUNDAMENTALISTS, of any race, having beaten down the "Conservative Adversary" as they now are the "last ideology standing" - forced to produce what they had promised to do as they were "Struggling" )
Is it too far of a stretch for me to say that "Scared Ron" and others LOOK AT THAT $136,000 IN THE BUSH..........they are squandering their management focus upon hundreds of thousands of Black
marriages that could bring forth $23,500 in unrecgonized value?
The choice to go after the "Racial Wealth Gap" will have Scared Ron and the "Du Boisians" to lobby the government for more "Social Justice Redistribution" programs. The sight of more EQUALITY trumps their demand that any growth among "The Blacks" come from ORGANIC COMPETENCY DEVELOPMENT in which we attract more value by transacting goods or services that other people want. Instead the notion of "social justice rights" within this society is the grounds for their proposed transactions that "make equality".
My alternative strategy would require that we "Go Within" - compelling those people who are free to marry to see all of the benefit, financial and otherwise, that they are leaving on the table, unclaimed.
In truth, these monetary figures should not be seen as the driver for behavior.
Instead the enumeration of the wealth behind these numbers should be seen as EVIDENCE that the choices of the people behind them to:................
- Yield their selfish interests into a married relationship
- Leverage the presence of a second adult in the household
- Obtain a higher level of academic attainment
- Increase the probability that they will produce an ecosystem that conducive for child rearing
..............has measurable benefit that can be committed to a number.
With all due respect - When a group with a certain prevailing consciousness has failed to erect the necessary INTERNAL INSTITUTIONS through which they seek to obtain their desired ends - in the context of the ABATEMENT OF RACIAL HOSTILITIES that prevented them from constructing a house that was secured from racial terrorism - it stands to reason that they will also be seen seeking their development outside of their domain of control as the government system which envelops them has more defined institutions through which they can work.
They only need to fear being outside of this system, at which point they'll need to rely on the institutions that they failed to construct.
