Leadership, how can you speak for people
that you  do not know or understand? 
Who Do You Represent?

Group Discussions 

Locate news articles, read for evidence of systemic racism, bias and emotions behind actions. Consider how society tolerates harsh cruelties as well as harboring a quiet and latent bias against others while appearing to be inclusive. What does it take to release these feelings and what sparks action? Who are the victims and who the perpetrators? How do we explain and justify bias? Where possible read COMMENTS and discuss how honest people can be when anonymous. They can also express common sense thoughts that are widely shared but politically incorrect to speak aloud. Finally, discuss how you believe that we should address common understandings to solve social and economic stratification issues at home and worldwide.

Early Europeans brought slaves to pre-America. Also, In the 17th century, Africans were brought, not as slaves but as indentured servants. They earned freedom and some became landowners, but not citizens. Free Africans and other than English citizens were later deported. Some Africans opted to stay as enslaved people. During this period, chatel or generational slavery was introduced. Thus began the centuries-long oppression of Africans in America. Native American slavery was practiced.  Each ethnic group; Black, white, immigrant, Caribbean and Native American enslaved people as this was the accepted method for economic prosperity during that period. 

America's history is unique as a new world phenomenon for creating a people from many peoples. Natives often merged with French, Spanish, English, Dutch, Russian and other early settlers. Immigrants pursued American Dreams on the virgin shores, all claiming their piece of America for their respective ethnic groups while maintaining some traditional practices. Varying levels of patriotism were divided between America and "back home." The exception was ADOS, though combined with all ethnic groups present and was practically ethnically cleaned of African identity, became a "New People" not known elsewhere in this world. They were loyal only to the United States of America. They applied every means to prove their allegiance, a right to full citizenship and they loved the land that oppressed them. They fought in every pre- and American war.  They are UNIQUE.

Why Resentments

OWNERSHIP OF AMERICA, bought and paid for by slave ancestors, freedmen and women and every generation of their heirs. They expect inheritances and entitlements as FIRST PRIVILEGES to them alongside other foundational Americans. FIRST.. consideration for opportunities over others come later to the line. FIRST... consideration for jobs, education, training and access to wealth-building privileges.  FIRST... heard on issues regarding American policies that impact their country, group and threaten both. 


CONSIDERATION AND RESPECT. In what nation in this world would citizens accept treatment as a secondary or lower status to recent immigrants, visitors, and non-citizen residents? This in addition to established racist, embedded and historical systems of mistreatment that daily challenge equal treatment of them under laws and moral entitlements? WHO SPEAKS FOR THEM?

Impact of Immigration on ADOS

The Impact of Illegal Immigration on the Wages and Employment Opportunities of Black Workers Report was presented in 2010 to the President and the highest federal officials in America. Consider the seven outcomes presented.

1. There has been a significant rise in U.S. immigration, both legal and illegal, over the past four decades. Experts at our briefing testified that immigrant workers now make up approximately one-seventh of the American workforce, and they estimated that illegal workers account for one-third of the total immigrants now in the U.S.

2. Illegal immigration to the United States has tended to increase the supply of low-skilled, low-wage labor available in the U.S. labor market.

3. About six in 10 adult Black males have a high school diploma or less, and Black men are disproportionately employed in the low-skilled labor market, where they are more likely to be in labor competition with immigrants.

4. The average worker with a high school degree or less earns less today, adjusted for inflation, than someone with a similar education earned thirty-five years ago.

5. Illegal immigration to the United States in recent decades has tended to depress both wages and employment rates for low-skilled American citizens, a disproportionate number of whom are Black men. Expert economic opinions concerning the negative effects range from modest to significant. Those panelists that found modest effects overall nonetheless found significant effects in industry sectors such as meatpacking and construction.

6. To be sure, factors other than illegal immigration contributes to Black unemployment. The problem cannot be solved without solving the problems of the high school dropout rate, high rates of family instability, and low job-retention rates. Moreover, halting illegal immigration is not a panacea even for the problem of depressed wage rates for low-skilled jobs. If upward pressure is brought to bear on low-skilled wages, increasing globalization of the economy may result in some of these jobs simply being exported to other countries. Still, the effect of illegal immigration on the wages of low-skilled workers, who are disproportionately minority members, is a piece of the puzzle that policymakers must consider in formulating sound immigration policy.

7. Data collection and analysis of the effects of illegal immigration are necessary to develop sound public policy. Much of the data on this question is currently limited by the fact that it does not distinguish clearly between legal and illegal.

"I want to speak for you" politicians should have read these reports. If so, what are they doing?

Why Reparations

Repair Losses and Damages, Seek Forgiveness for Past Wrongs, Restore to Where You Should Be, Repentance, Repay Legal  Entitlements for Systemic Human Violations Through Unjust Laws, Improve Social Wellbeing for All Involved who Seek Peace and Harmony


1971 - 1986     Alaskan, Klamaths, Sioux, Seminoles, Chippewas, Ottawas, and other Native tribes have received billions for treaty awards in money, land and individual payments. Today, many benefit from exclusive set aside programs to ensure retribution entitlements.

1990     Japanese Americans, estimated at 120,000 people, were interned in concentration camps and their property confiscated during World War 2. Received an apology and $20,000 to each former internee still alive.  By 1992, the U.S. government disbursed more than $1.6 billion in reparations to 82,219 Japanese Americans who had been interned.

1994    Roseville Florida Race Massacre occurred in 1923 that killed many and destroyed their community. In 1994, $2 million dollars was distributed to 9 surviving families.

Centuries of slavery, failed Reconstruction,     Jim Crow, Convict labor and broken homes, continuous massacres, race riots, disenfranchisement, sundown towns in every state, unequal distribution of citizen provisions per race, redlining, systemic taking of Black-owned lands, last hired and first fired, dividing restitution for offenses with people of color

Affirmative Action


President Kennedy signed Affirmative Action orders into law in 1961, mandating that government contracts be fairly distributed and employment awarded without regard for race, creed, color or national origin. In 1965, President Johnson signed an executive order that required government employers to take affirmative action to ensure that applicants receive fair treatment without regard to their race, creed, color or national origin. There is no ADOS reparation clause. No special privileges just for ADOS repair. This is for People of Color, People with Disabilities, Gender and Sexual Preference Identity Groups and White Women, who benefit more than any other group.

Yes, what is legal, 
But also, What if fair?

The Golden Rule


Do unto our nation, citizens, coworkers as you desire that they would do unto yours, respecting their boundaries, culture and entitlements that are their inheritance.

NOT Acceptable Anywhere In The World

Where in the world does the government allow foreigners first consideration or even equal consideration with citizens? Where do they get services when citizens are caused to sacrifice and forgo those same services due to limited capacity? Where are foreigners allowed to be spokespersons for citizens and everybody else despite not knowing much about everybody else?


Where can first-generation offspring run for President of that nation?

How many ADOS are news anchors in Africa, Britain, Germany, the Caribbean, Mexico or any place in Latin America, India, China or Australia REGARDLESS of how long they have lived there?

Yet, this is standard practice for diversity celebration in America. There is no regard for first serve due to legacy. Leadership is awarded to people who may also demonstrate Anti-Blackness biases in their homeland and in America.

In one American city, COVID set-asides were available to Black businesses deemed more harshly impacted by the pandemic. Lawsuits were immediately filed by a white man and a Hispanic man as discriminatory.

Why are Ivy League admission practices that offer ADOS opportunities for higher education challenged by other ethnic groups? ADOS admissions are a smaller percentage compared to other ethnic groups at these schools. ADOS DO NOT travel the world to sit in seats designed for their citizens. Places that often train more doctors, engineers and professionals than in America. Why covet what ADOS are entitled to by lineage?
