    Black Entertainment : RED TAILS / Black pride movie recruitment Prpaganda?

    Black Entertainment : RED TAILS / Black pride movie recruitment Prpaganda?

    This movie was done in 1995 by HBO. I wonder, from a motive perspective, does the producer expect to do a better job than what HBO did, to get a broader audience, to tell the story more historically accurate?

    Black People : Are we ignoring our most pressing issues? If so, Why?

    I agree that social media would be very helpful to spread awareness to the extent that it effects at the cultural level...and the social media does, infact, effect things on a cultural level. I wouldn't, however, go as far as to say we may not need celebrities to promote these programs though...

    Black People : Are we ignoring our most pressing issues? If so, Why?

    Brother, please don't get the impression that I claim to have a monopoly on ideas. At this time, I do not have a comprehensive plan as to exactly how to bring about this cultural change. The one thing that I do know is that as long as our efforts are fighting against the culture, the culture...

    Black People : Are we ignoring our most pressing issues? If so, Why?

    Brother you are correct. This is exactly what I was saying when I said: So, what we would be doing is building a front group of celebraties, or otherwise influential people to articulate the goals and to promote the changes needed to bring about the measureable results and an action committee of...

    Black People : Are we ignoring our most pressing issues? If so, Why?

    We would need to contact one of the influential people and tell them of the viral effect that we are trying to bring about and the overall objectives. They would have contacts with other influential people then build the network from there. The important thing in the early stages of building...

    Build a broad coalition of people who are already positioned to influence our culture from the likes of Ophry Winfrey to Jay Z, from Al Sharpton to Maxine Waters, from Micheal Jordan to Russell Simons. These types would represent the face of a campaign designed specifically to bring about...

    Black People : Are we ignoring our most pressing issues? If so, Why?

    I am currently a member of two such organizations. One is a faith based while the other is secular and focused on mentoring boys and young men. Both have some level of effectiveness, but we are rowing against the current. Effective strategies in todays' environment must occur at a societal or...

    Black People : Are we ignoring our most pressing issues? If so, Why?

    I feel ya. That's why I am such a fan of pin pointing specific solutions and analyzing those solutions for results. What I'm saying brother is that we can't allow people with "issues" slow our roll. We can't get mad at them for being themselves either. We can play with them when they make...

    Black People : Are we ignoring our most pressing issues? If so, Why?

    As your post relates to the OP, it is my opinion that if we were to focus, as a community, on making measureable improvements in those areas that I mentioned as "pressing", we can make definative improvements in those areas regardless of rather we all are at the same level of consciousness or...

    Likewise, I understand where you are coming from and at the same time, I see all things as a reflection of where our values are. I am not questioning nor judging the topics that you freely choose to discuss, rant, opine, etc as we all have a right to spend our down time how we choose. This...

    Black People : Are we ignoring our most pressing issues? If so, Why?

    So, are you saying that you don't have an opinion as to rather we will be better off or worse off two generations from now as a collective people group if we continue on the exact path that we are currently on?

    Black People : Are we ignoring our most pressing issues? If so, Why?

    Lets say I consider what you are doing the "good stuff". My question then becomes, "Is there enough of the good stuff going on to effect change or to improve our condition within the next two generations?" (not from you as an individual, but from our community at large. No one individual can do...
