You know what.....my baby brother who is a self proclaimed republican told me about this. He gets a lot of slack for being a black republican, but he has hipped me to a lot of the game that the democrats play and he has opened my eyes about politics in general.

Yes, I am quite aware of who they are and many years ago assisted with local activities, however, their mission and the state of our communities bear a large gap. Personally, I remember Black organizations, such as this one, being much more visible in the 80's. Although NBCC is a non-profit Black organization with a common purpose for the upliftment of Black businesses and social engagement...we have a huge lack in the very areas that they "speak" to.

After exploring their website, it became evident why that is. They advise the following statements:

I want to start a new business, how can the NBCC assist me?
The NBCC does not actively assist start-ups. We do provide a Small Business Financial Resources Guide which gives you information on how to start a business.

I'm a member of my local chamber of commerce. Does that automatically make me a member of the National Black Chamber?
No, the National Black Chamber of Commerce is not a parent organization of the state and local chambers. You will need to apply for a separate membership in the National Black Chamber of Commerce.

What's the difference between the National Black Chamber of Commerce and my state or local chamber?
Local and state chambers emulate the National Black Chamber of Commerce. The National Black Chamber of Commerce focuses on federal issues while state chambers focus on state issues and local chambers focus on local issues.

Can you provide statistics on buying power, data on expenditure category and disposable personal income?
Please check with the U.S. Department of Commerce and the Selig Center at the University of Georgia for buying power statistics on all races.

My key concern is that their focus is on a federal level. The development of local chapters is driven by an individual or group in that community. However, I'm reminded of the saying "the blind leading the blind". If you have a community who is not engaged, realizing a local chapter is frutile..I wonder how many chapters exist and how viable they are in their respective communities. Also, I noticed in a few areas on their site where it's noted of rapid increase of Black businesses, but the reality is much different. They also note their work to support fair trading abroad, however, the trade system is extremely unfair and in Africa particulary, it is devestating to see the exploitation of local farmers...the coffee industry is a prime example. Not to say they can fix the problem, however, the message I got from their site is that the trade system is more equal than reality shows.

I appreciate their work and would never speak negatively, as any Black organization that is actively persuing the betterment of our people is highly honored in my eyes. However, I wonder what their definition of a Black business is. A business that is directed by and for Blacks but isn't funded by Blacks will lose it's mission as it attempts to become diverse, we spoke heavily about this in the Politics from a Black Perspective meetings here on Destee.com. So the large numbers they report may include businesses who are not as relevant to the Black consumer as it began. Since the diversity shift began, in my opinion, many businesses grew a mold to suit and in doing so, became a diversed business with a diverse mission...the growing Hispanic markets speaks largely to this.

The 17-18 % Black unemployment rate speaks to a larger problem, and should prompt so called 'Black organizations' to re-evaluate how visible and effective they are in the Black community.
