We need to ask ourselves why we don’t have a lobbyists. We have attorneys and all sorts of professionals to play ball, so why not have lobbyists to help us get our tax dollars into our communities like other groups. The Jewish communities, Arabs, Irish, and other ethnic groups have lobbyists to grease wheels and get “our” tax dollars redirected into their communities. And White people, well…you already know how they roll.
Everyone lobbies for what they want or need except for Black people. We think people are going to do right by us because we march and fight for civil rights, rights everyone else receive automatically for being nicely assimilated White people. We march and fight for everyone else while they lobby just for their own respective groups. We gotta get real with America.
We gotta pay to play [like other ethnic groups], and we don’t want to pay so we can’t play. Period. It may not be right, but in the words of Run DMC, “It’s like that, and that’s the way it is.” Huuuuuuuh! We are all we got, and we need to take care of our home.
