Non Profit Community Can Stimulate Black’s Economy

Non Profit Community Can Stimulate Black’s Economy


We all know that working in the non profit sector is no get rich scheme. Often you work longer hours and earn less pay in the non profit sector.  Just like a for profit organization a non profit organization has to turn a buck to be economically feasible and sustainable.  The reward in the non profit sector is that often you can do something you enjoy doing that is fulfilling in your life.  It is a great opportunity to help people.


A lot of non profit organizations however are losing their 503 c 3 status, because they are not properly filling out their tax returns.  This is sad that it is happening at a time when more people than ever need the help of the non profit sector.


What is the real difference between the non profit organization and a for profit corporation?  The real difference between for profit and non profit is how the money earned from the corporations is paid out to the people. This is beyond the scope of this article.


Understanding that we live in a consumer driven economy and the black community is the underserved and underdogs of America.  An interdependent black community can be an essential part of the rebuilding of America’s economy.  We at the National Community Network and Coalition of Highlands, INC (NCNCHINC) believe that a dead economy is economics not in motion.  People are not working because consumer spending is down, because people are not working.  It is a catch 22!  If we as a community put people back in motion, people will be able to spend more and it would put people back to work. What is work?  It is the inclusion into the labor force for compensation.


The only way the black community is going to rebound from the economic crisis, which is a depression among blacks is to recycle.  When I say recycle I am talking about moving money within the community and keeping it in the community as long as necessary to produce more revenue.  How can this be done?


We have to have a community business plan incentive.  Everyone cannot be a beer jug joint or drug dealer.  We need essential business institutions to sustain our economic stability.  We need a grocery store with food in it. We need our own laundry mate.  We need within the community a hair solon and barbershop that also sells hair supplies.  We need entrepreneurs to step up and sell vegetables on stands daily in some of our vacant lots and compensate the land owners for the use of his property; they too have to pay taxes.  We need black media to define our black people.  We need restaurants so we can stop handing our money to McDonald’s and the Illuminati.  We need affordable housing and daycare. I can go on but the article will never end.  The Honorable Rev. Frank Paul Jones says we need us to take back our community and stop the oppression of our own people for crumbs. 


We need eat the meat, through non profit leadership!




Labor Unions Creates Jobs & Better Economic Conditions

Labor Unions Creates Jobs & Better Economic Conditions


When most people thinks of Labor Unions they think of the AFL-CIO and the Change to Win Federation which is the two largest Unions in the United States.  When we think of Labor Unions, we think of organizations that advocate for living wages, good working conditions and good benefits for its members. 


The Unionize Labor Movement goes back to the Colonial days of the 1619-1776, but when most people think of the Labor Unions we think of the Industrial Movement in the late 1930’s thru the 1940s, 1950s and even the 1960s, that led to mass production and good manufacturing plant type employment.  We think about the days when America was a major producer of products.  These days may be gone for now but the survival of our nation may well depend on its return.


Right to work advocates in states like Florida and currently there are 22 of them, argue that the workers should be free both to join and to refrain from joining unions and refer to non-right-to-work-states as “force-union states.


However I believe that Labor unions are good for the common man and woman.  It creates an environment for collective bargaining.  Sure in Unionized state you usually and almost always pay for this, but often you get what you pay for.  And there is the argument that often Unions are corrupt.  But since when have big businesses become ethical without oversight?  Look at what big corporate America did to us in recent years.  They outsourced our jobs to third world counties for a quick profit.  Now we have an economic reality never worst since the great depression.


The bottom line is that Labor Unions create safer work places, better wages and better benefits for its members by giving the members a stronger voice, meaning leverage with the powerful few who head these big businesses.  Labor unions therefore attract more qualified professionals and create better jobs by attracting a stronger labor force to perform the necessary duties.


Union members in the United States earn significantly more than non-union workers.  Unionized workers earn over 26% more than non-union workers with similar jobs based on 2008 statistics.  Now you do the math!  Non-union workers get injured at work more often, get less benefits and are quicker to get fired and not even get unemployment which puts corporate management in a stronger and more oppressive status over their employees.  They can work you for little to nothing and fire you at will.


While it may be argued that many manufactures are moving to non union states, out of unionized states, they are also moving to Taiwan, Mexico and any other third world countries where cheaper labor is available.  This does not make prices lower to the consumers, or create better products.  It just creates more profits for the big corporations and actually hurts the American economy, by reducing the GDP and decreases consumer spending here in America.  This creates mortgage foreclosures and therefore failing banks.  This is not the formula for living wage jobs creation with or without tax breaks.  It is socialism in disguise.



The Black Women’s Job & the Black Man’s Prison

Soup Kitchen LineThe Black Women’s Job & the Black Man’s Prison


Never in the history of American has so many men of one race been sent away from their children and family.  Approximately 16 million men and women served in the military during World War Two.  Out of that there were about 2.5 million African Americans and women combined that served as there were people of many races.  So even if 12 million were white with a population of about 134 million we are talking about less than 10% of the white population.


Now it is a fact that although the black population is 12 percent of the United States it is 17 percent of the military and black people are 22 percent likely to be incarcerated with about 1,000,000 locked up at this time.  My point without an in-depth analysis is that as more black men in proportion to the population are sent away from children and family now as were white men during World War II. 


The prison is a manufacturing compound, but it does not have the benefit of employment upon release.  So we have many black men who are basically symbolically castrated in American Society.  During World War Two, America was a manufacturing institution, but today we outsource our manufacturing jobs for cheaper labor.  So the role of men in general is that we have no real role in a service oriented economy and this is especially the case of the black man.  Hell looks at the auto industry!


The result is that the black man’s pride became the black woman’s pride and the weakness of the black community influencing troubled children.  The black man is absent without leave and therefore is not being subsidized but is in fact paying dues to a society that owes him repatriations for his ancestor’s labor without compensation called slavery. 


We have to stop outsourcing or manufacturing jobs to prisons and foreign markets.  What Big Corporate America forgot is that even the Service industry and superstores need paying customers and paying customers need jobs.  Put America back to work and buy American.  However this is easier said than done without tariffs on foreign imports.

How About Trade Reform?

President Obama gets briefedHow About Trade Reform?


The United States trade deficit was over $666 Billion in 2008 alone.  A negative balance of trade is when imports exceed exports and is called a trade deficit. In other words Americans buy more foreign goods than products made in America.  You have to ask how this could be when America is the land of milk and honey.  The answer is plain and simple; it is the result of big corporate greed.   They sold us out! 


They incarcerate the minorities or send them to war and send white trash along with them to foreign lands for the right to outsource labor, called cheap labor.  They destroy the American labor force systemically as the give jobs to foreigners.   This is called the American Dream.  And when they become too powerful (Nations) they send us over there to kill them and destroy their lands so they can start all over at the costs of our livelihood.  Does Iraq ring a bell!  Do Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein light a torch or what?  America made them both and it is not secret, and now we are taking them down.  Why?  Is it because to big corporate America they are like mere drug dealers who made a pact with the devil?


I say it is a conspiracy against Americans; corrupt businessmen influenced the political parties with money in the name of capitalism.  The whole system is screwed up all the way to how a person is elected.  An example is Mayor Bloomberg he is about to buy New York City’s “City Hall.” It takes money to run a campaign and where do you think the money comes from to run an election, from special interest groups with an agenda.  Their purpose is to influence the political system plain and simple.


People may allude to President Obama campaign came from the grass roots, I personally do not buy that, I think that whole line of crap is a ploy, because what is he doing for the little man now?  How much money is he collecting from special interest coalitions now?  I mean who sent him the money, not one person came to me and said I send Senator Obama money.  Not that I matter to everyone; but I should know a few people who contributed.  I do not!


The answer is tariffs on foreign imports, stop outsourcing labor, stop fighting senseless wars, open the prison gates after they are educated and regulate the elections process.  Everyone should have the same war treasure chest in the elections process, with the same amount of media coverage and then and not until then will America be governed by Americans for Americans.  The people in Washington DC are traders who overthrew the American government.
