Black unity needs organization mobilized and centralized. Example, the Mormons unified than mobilized their unity than centralize it to Utah. Black people need to do the same here in America. Yes we have a Black President today, cities with Black Mayors and City councils but the White Majority in America controls Federal and State affairs. So it’s not enough in these times, nor was it in the past for us to integrate with the Majority group that controls American society.
The task of Black people truly unifying seems impossible because our population is divided spiritually and physically in America. What we lack that the White Majority group has is a “Manifest Destiny or “Creed,” binding our group to us, regardless of our various adopted ideologies and social factors. Not a manifest destiny or creed based on trampling the human rights of those not in our group but one of respect and mutual concern for all of humanity.
What we need foremost is land our group dominates seven to one over any other group in America. We do not have that nor has it been encouraged. Think if our group during the great migration had centralized our movement to say three or four particular States in the Union. Gained and held control of the governing of those States. Made them attractive and sustainable under the Constitution of the United States. More than likely in this present time we would not be divided having divisive debates among us about our group political and physical survival today and into the future.
Young Black men of America, we will continue to fight to protect you. You have the right to live and pursue your version of happiness like everyone else in America. Do not ever allow anyone or anything make you feel undeserving!

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day is not a day off to chill and take off. It is supposed to be about volunteering and giving back to the community.
What is the MLK Day of Service?
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?’”
Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.
The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President’s national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.
