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!

The F.P. Jones Clean Slate Bill

The F.P. Jones Clean Slate Bill

 

I am about the address a serious dilemma in America.  The welfare of children from single parenting homes needs to be addressed.  With 40 Million people in America living below the poverty line and 13 million on them children this should be serious concern of all Americans.  Why?  Can we drain water from a rock?  If the parents of the children are poor the chances are the child is also poor.

 

This single parent agenda bill is about families reuniting or functioning as separate entities to the benefit of the child who did not ask to be born.  We have programs for single parents with the children, so we also should take into consideration that the parent separated from their children may from time to time need help also.

 

The main focus of this bill that I hope will be introduced to the Congress is the children of America poverty levels as a result of single parenthood.  One of the main reasons why parents’ breakup is due to economics and by the man being separated from the woman does not necessarily equate to better economic conditions for the child, if the father cannot produce child support.

 

As we address the poverty levels of the children in America, we must focus on the real issues which are food, clothing and shelter.  Most programs focus on the single parent with the children, but the focus should be on the children.  We cannot condone teenage pregnancy due to reckless sexual acts, no more than we can condone the deadbeat dads.  But if it is due to economic circumstances our question is should it be forgiven for the sake of the children. We cannot continue to use children as pawns to be vindictive towards the poor man in America.   Though this is not a black and white issue it is often an aggravated assault on black men.

 

Why are there not programs to help the deadbeat dad catch up on child support payments?   Why once a man falls behind he can never catch up?  This is an example of symbolic castration, as we send the mother the check and the father the bill, we send the woman to college and send the brother to jail?

 

Understand the issue at hand.  If money is being paid by tax payers to rectify an economic injustice such as the lack of food, clothing and shelter for a child, why must it become a judicial situation? Thus it  is double jeopardy on the tax payer. This is evil and vindictive. 

The F.P. Jones Clean Slate Bill is simple.  If a man can prove he was a deadbeat dad due to economic circumstances and has means to support his children now, his old debts to society is wiped clean.  Though this may sound liberal it will bring deadbeat dads out of hiding and possibly reunited children with both parents active in their lives.  If we can forgive illegal immigrants and big corporations we can forgive the little guy struggling to buy a loaf of bread each day.
