AFRICAN AMERICANS LOSE AS A COMMUNITY: Though WIN as a GROUP

AFRICAN AMERICANS LOSE AS A COMMUNITY: Though WIN as a GROUP
Posted By: jamal Abraham on June 06, 2010

As an individual, many African Americans can claim, they have won. Even as a Group which is defined as a number of persons or things gathered closely together and forming a recognizable unit. To WIN an Individual must be able to survive and grow. Black Americans "win" as a group. Across America, programs are setup to assist their people with as array of problems including rehabilitation, mentoring, counseling and financial services.



Religion and social networks have also been instrumental at strengthening the group. To Grow there is HBCUs which allows black Americans with ambition and motivation to excel, to learn necessary skills to sustain themselves and help others.

Then there is the Community where Black Americans are complete failures. Even as a Nation, Black Americans fail. There are many reasons why but, first, lets here what your thoughts are.

Nice post! However the major issue that I see with the so-called African-Americans is nationality. If we reclaim our true nationality it will help us unify more. Religion can solve some issues, however knowing who you really are and your history should bind you together despite the adversaries of the other nations. The so-called African Americans need to stop emulating other cultures and nationalities, up and including African culture because we are not Hamitic people. So leave the Egyptiology stuff for the Black Africans and Arabs to absorb for their cultural awareness.

Excellent point.........since a community is group of people "living" together as a smaller social unit within a larger one having common interest and work, there is a major problem. By definition, A black community may possibly survive but it cannot grow since it depends on the larger white community for its key necessities. A black community would need grocery stores, educational services and medical services to grow. For a black community to excel they would need to be in control of protection services to handle crime. The black community in America needs the 911 protection from the larger white community. How many African Americans have died waiting on protection services from white authority only to arrive way too late. An expected mother needs to go to medical services outside of the black community for her pregnancy needs. Since an African American community is unable to take care of itself, we find the deplorable conditions prevalent in black communities. An African American community would need be able to provide for its own elderly with hospice and senior living accommodations. It is in this sense, that the African American community has failed.
