I'm all for "blacks" bettering themselves yes....but all this talk of black communities n ish....has to stop....everyone keeps making this a color issue....let the whole race nonsense GO
Sorry,but there are black communities. And they have social and economic problems that need to be solved. Also,if you live in America,it's all about race,there is no escaping it. Recognizing race, is different than harping on race.

Peace!

The Chinese have Chinatown. Italians have Little Italy. Cubans have Little Havana. Why shouldn't we have an AfricaTown or Little Africa?
For the most part I think we have been conditioned to see as wanting something for ourselves, as being a bad thing. None of us gives a second thought to the truth you have just spoke because we are use to seeing it. Self reliance is an unpalatable taste to some of us.

Peace!

I have to go back and re-read how it works, but to ask a quick question, are all the folks in that community benefitting equitably, or is "Allah" taking the lion's share? A model that truly works is never exploitive. To be honest with you, I'm trying to figure out why that organization seems familiar to me. Red flags are waving for some reason. It will come to me. Meanwhile, if you have personal insights to share, please do.

Who said anything about joining someone's religion? You can believe in the holiness of pig feet for all I care. This thread was purely about following a successful economic model set up by Black people for Black people.

OK...here we go. I knew I remembered that name from somewhere because a friend told me about it. I realize Wikipedia is a questionable source, but I'd read and heard about the story before.

Thanks for sharing the information, but it's still important to evaluate what's out there. Do you know of any African models that are not based on hierarchies and exploitation?

I know this is my first status update since 2020 begin, but all of us agree that 2020 delivered a low-blow
to each of us with the miscellaneous events we have recently seen which brought all of us great displeasure.
