Billionaire racists will be billionaire racists. Not much we can do about that. But the fact that our so-
called civil rights organizations depend on the deep pockets of Wal-Mart, Comcast, and the David
Sterlings of this world even though they pretend to represent the interests of ordinary black people is
not something we have to live with.

“Depending on the rich and powerful to pay their bills while pretending to speak for
the poor and oppressed is not a mere bug in the way our 21st century civil rights
organizations work ”


For us at Black Agenda Report, the most telling angle on the story of Donald Sterling,
the racist billionaire owner of the LA Clippers, was that the Los Angeles NAACP , which
had been about to give Sterling a second – not a first but a second “Lifetime
Achievement Award” eagerly stepped forward to offer redemption and
forgiveness
for the small cost of a few more strategic donations from the deep
pockets of Donald Sterling.

Donald Sterling may imagine he owns basketball players. But he really does own the NAACP, just as
surely as Verizon and Comcast, Aetna, Wal-Mart, MSNBC and others own the National Action
Network, Rainbow-PUSH, the Urban League, the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation and the rest
of our politically bankrupt black misleadership class.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
