Cultivated Ignorance 

March 15, 2017

Cultivated Ignorance is the new enslaver in the African American community in 2018

As I write this great truth concerning apathetic African American Leadership, it comes with great pain. As a child, I learned early in life everything has a price. As an Adult male and father, I understand the power of those words. Unfortunately, American leadership has failed to realize or cultivate this life principle. African American Leadership has been unable to understand "no one is coming to save us."

 Since the end of the Civil Right era, the African American community has regressed into a sorry state of social, civic, and economic co-dependency. The African American Religious, educational, and Political leadership ignorance are holistically killing the soul of the African American community. Before the post-Civil Rights era, we had a common philosophy of one love regardless of our economic status as individuals. Since then, we have regressed holistically into a state of profound Ignorance perpetuated by misguided African American Leadership. Today, a dollar lasts for 30 minutes in our community. Our families are broken and sick holistically. Our children don't trust us. Most AA Adult men can't read at a sixth-grade level or have empathy for family and community. Black Leadership is dead at the end of the Civil Rights era.   The difference between a good community and a great community is Leadership.

Today, more than ever, Leadership is required in the African American community. The African American community collectively suffers not because of racism, poverty, or crime. The primary reason is self-inflicted Ignorance. I respect the African American religious, educational, and political leadership but hold them accountable overall for the blighted economic condition in the urban core. For more than 50 years, the Black Leadership has betrayed the African American community. Decreasing the pathology in North Jacksonville cannot be achieved by the present African American Leadership, especially the Faith-based, educational, and political Leadership. The violent crime increase directly correlates with misguided leadership failure to understand and implement Community Engagement 101. No longer can the African American community allow leadership folly, religious fanaticism, and political cronyism to misdirect our resolve. The only way to improve the blighted conditions of so many in the Urban Core requires new Leadership. Open-minded cohesive Leadership, who are readers, live in the community and are committed to our resolve.

The African American Economic Recovery Think Tank has developed a holistic economic roadmap impacting the Quality of Life in the urban core throughout Jacksonville North Bank. The AAERTT understands the methodology needed to affect these communities. Further, AAERTT knows how to build a competent goal-driven team to achieve that strategy. AAERTT has four implementation components required to increase the Quality of Life index by 20 to 30 percent within three years in North Jacksonville.

Four Community Building Components -

1. Family Infrastructure (Home Economics Management)

2. Education based on the Arts, History, and STEM

3. Preventative Health (Obesity,  Fitness,  Sexual Diseases, etc.)

4. Cooperative Economics (Business Development and Ownership)
