I'm just glad that we're looking at this at all.  The two things we always have to remember and make sure we understand when confronted with the bullsh*t are institutional racism vs generational wealth.   We didn't just accidentally end up here w/o bootstraps to pull up.

Agreed. On a side note, there is a certain brand of intellectually conscious BHM members that I absolutely love dialoguing with, kfoxx being one of them. Honestly, it's one of the main reasons I stay on BHM. 
We need think-tanks in our communities with the ability to effectuate change within our communities. You would think with an AA president we would have back-channel opportunities to address some of these issues, but on its face, it doesn't appear so. I could be wrong, and I certainly hope I am.

Yeah, we need real think tanks and really get in tune with our African brothers across the atlantic. The wealth that is brewing rapidly is why the Chinese, Japanese, and many other people are there. If there wasn't any money to be made they would not be there for no reason. I think the whole reason they try to put fear into African Americans that Africa is horrible and wretched place to live in which many nations are not bad, but very great places to live is to keep us from attaining wealth with them. We live in America and see the corruption and how they treat others and everyone else is pimping us. It's time to switch on them and pimp them for a change.

BHM ate my postLOL

Thank you trudawg.  I feel exactly the same way. 

It definitely has to be us and this young generation on the rise now.  I feel like our black leadership is paralyzed by all the bullsh*t.   I feel it too and I'm weary of their foolishness.  Grass Roots is going to be more powerful. 

Hubby is convinced that Obama will be a very effective leader with tremendous influence once he LEAVES the white house.  I hope that is true.  I hope he walks away with one powerful thing on his mind as his legacy and that thing is black America.   I hope Michelle never fades from view like most 1st ladies.  I hope she really steps into it and becomes a beacon for little black girls.  I nod my head like he may have a point.    If I had that kind of power as an ex-President for life I guarantee I would be the 1st ex-President to be assassinated.  I would act up after how they disrespected him for 8 years.

Tru this is a five star thread.Beer

I read it last night. All I could do was nod my head in agreement.

I wonder how we can ignite these sort of threads.

Personally speaking, when I read and agree, I don't have much to discuss. LOL

You think President Obama is going to leave a powerful resonance after he leaves office? He might be the strategist type than. I'm still on the fence about that one, he does have the potential to do so, but how is he going to do it?

I said my husband thinks that.  Its one of those things I can't really speculate on.  Just think I would welcome it. 

If he does the way he can do it is through his influence.  The Ex-Presidents can get the ear of anyone and they are a small elite group.  Black America issues are so far removed from a sitting President's agenda that its an area nobody can claim Obama is interfering with the new president's power.   Interference is the reason ex-Presidents stay mostly silent.  Notice how every time Bill Clinton says anything at all they try to twist it into fighting words. 

ETA:  To Answer your question YES he will leave with power.  There are very few ex-Presidents alive today and on the DL they have more influence out of office than in.
