Letter from a Berkeley co-ed „ Mock bake sale seen as an insult to minorities, women Editor’s Note: We thought it interesting and appropriate to run the following email from Sunny Dae Earle, a local resident who is now a secondyear student at UC Berkeley. It seem sides are hardening on the campus over Senate Bill 185, which would allow state colleges and universities to consider race, gender, ethnicity, and national origin, along with other relevant factors, in undergraduate and graduate admissions. We don’t know if the attitudes chronicled here are typical of what the school has now become. If so, it’s back to the ’60s. Hello Family and Friends, I am e-mailing you all because there is a lot of media attention surrounding a controversy at my school, and I thought I would shed some insight on the issue from my point of view. As many of you may have read or seen, a student group, Berkeley College Republicans, conducted a “diversity” bake sale on campus Tuesday (Sept. 26). The purpose of this bake sale, was to make a satirical statement and cause people to think about affirmative action and how it is unfair. It seemed that it did not matter to the group that their “humorous” idea of a bake sale might be both coarse and insulting to other groups. The Berkeley College Republicans made their point by selling baked goods at different prices based on race and gender. For example, for Whites the price of the baked goods were $2, for Latinos $1, African Americans $0.75, Native Americans $0.25 and all women get $0.25 off their purchases. The idea was that all were purchasing the same item but some were purchasing at a lower price, which is unfair to Whites. The event took place on campus across from a phone banking demonstration encouraging people to call the governor’s office in support of SB 185 (a bill on Brown’s desk which would overturn antiaffirmative action laws and allow admissions officers to take race, gender and national origin into account when accepting students). Of course, Berkeley College Republicans are opposed to such a measure. With that said, I know that there are a lot of different views of affirmative action, even within my own family, I am sure. However, I would just like to share some of my own personal experiences with you from my time at Berkeley. First, I would like to say that UC Berkeley is huge, both in size and in terms of student population. However, on a campus of more than 30,000 students there are only 867 African American students. That number was very surprising to me, but I was unabashed by it until I realized the dramatic impact this has on campus climate. Last year, while walking back to the dorms from dinner with three of my male friends (all well dressed, neat, articulate and Black) we saw a desolate, old, filthy, White vagrant, who I assumed was also a drug addict. The lady was being loud and obnoxious, but Berkeley is a weird place, so we were used to such actions and paid her no mind. As we passed the vagabond, she spat at us while shouting “burn niggers burn” and threw handfuls of rocks after us.

A few months later, I went out with two of my friends (my friend Asha, an African American girl, and Manal from Saudi Arabia) and two of Manal’s White friends. We attended three frat parties, the first two were boring, I guess it was a slow night for them and they were allowing anyone in, so we went to a third. I assume this was the popular party of the night because there was a large crowd of people trying to get in. Lucky for us, we thought, Asha knew the guy working the door. (He was a member of the fraternity, and he and Asha had attended elementary, middle and high school together). He saw Asha, asked her how many friends she had with her and told us to come in. Upon hearing this, his Asian frat brother intervened and asked why he was letting us in. Asha’s friend said, “Dude, just let them in. I know her.” The Asian boy replied, “Fine, you and your f***king jungle fever.” We immediately turned around and told the Asian boy how disrespectful and rude he was, and left the house. Asha and I cried on our way back to our dorm; we cried from hurt, humiliation, embarrassment and pain. (I should probably contextualize this more by letting you know that it is a common understanding among Black students at my school that “you won’t get into the frat parties, so don’t go”... which leads me to my next story. (By the way, this frat has lost its charter for similar racist activities having nothing to do with the incident involving us.) Fast forward to Saturday, Sept. 17, 2010). After my first encounter with a White frat party I realized I obviously was not welcomed at those types of parties, and I will never go where I am not wanted. However, on that Saturday an acquaintance on the football team told me he was throwing a football after-party at a frat house. My friends and I went, with the expectation that it was my acquaintance’s party. (He had done something like this during the summer.) Upon arriving, there was a large crowd of students waiting to get into the party (some were football players, some were freshmen, all were Black). We were met with belligerence and profanity, being told to “get the f**k off of our property, the party is over, it’s getting shut down, get the f**k out of here.” We remained on the sidewalk, discussing what we were going to do next and ignoring the ignorant frat boys, until one of the boys pulled out a water hose, turned it on and pointed it at the crowd of students (no one got wet). We asked if they realized the racial implications of the water hose, and were met with the response “you guys just need to leave.” Asha and I reported the incident to the dean of students, filed a hate crime report and had a meeting with the frat and the dean. A meeting which I honestly feel was a waste of time, because I still do not believe the boys realize just how hurtful, disrespectful and racist their actions were ... and I don’t expect they ever will. I just wanted to share these things with you because these acts of discrimination and racism are not exclusive to my Berkeley experience, but instead are the lived experiences of many of my peers and students before me, and that simply is not OK. We held a student-led protest Tuesday (on the same day as the bake sale) addressing campus cli-

An ode to grandparents „ Number of grandmother parents grows BY BRITTNEY M. WALKER OW CONTRIBUTOR

She’s a praying woman who faithfully attends Sunday school and morning service every week, along with Tuesday night prayer and Bible study. She wakes up every morning and prays for the family and prepares breakfast for her household full of grandbabies. She struggles to make ends meet on her measly Social Security check and government funds. Not to mention her health isn’t the best. She’s that grandmother who has paid her dues, raised her own children and is now raising her children’s children. Tony Brown, a 26-year-old husband and father of two was raised by his single grandmother, along with his two brothers and two younger cousins. At the age of 7, his mother gave up her boys because she knew she couldn’t provide for them. “She was a drug addict, an alcoholic and a sex fiend,” he said. “I wouldn’t say she loved her problem more than she loved me. It’s hard for a parent to let go. My mother loved me enough to put me in a better situation, because she knew she couldn’t give me what I needed.” Brown’s grandmother is a pastor at a small church in Los Angeles County. Growing up with her caused Brown to hide his emotions and deal with life quietly. He explained that while going to school functions, she was always there. But it wasn’t always a sense of pride having grandma there. At times it was shame. “To introduce my her as my grandmother, when everyone else’s mother and father were there brought up some feelings of shame. It’s not your fault, but you feel shame. It’s got to be hard for both sides,” he reminisced. Despite the challenges he and his family have faced dealing with matters of respect and limited space, as well as with issues of mental and emotional support, Brown appreciates his grandmother’s sacrifice, especially for the spiritual foundation she laid. The reality of Brown’s situation is not uncommon. Staggering statistics reveal that the number of grandparents as primary caregivers is steadily on the rise. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 51.7 percent of the Black Americans over the age of 30 are the primary caregivers for their grandchildren com-

pared to their White counterparts at 41.6 percent. “Big Mama” and “Pop Pop” have been the glue in the family since before most of us can even remember. Many Black people can go back into their ancestral genetic memory banks and reflect on the wisdom elders used to bestow upon the youth of African tribes or the healing and love they administered to the community. Not that any of those traditions have gone away, but an earth-shattering shift occurred when colonizers and slave traders attempted to break families apart and instituted a system of brutality and division. Grandparents were forced back into the trenches of primary care, obligated to rear not only their own grandchildren, but also the offspring of plantation owners. Some would argue that loving Black grandmas and grandpas essentially raised this nation, and their role has hardly changed. With the introduction of drugs into Black communities, particularly crack-cocaine, desperate poverty, joblessness and built-up emotions of oppression, somehow the Black family became undone even more. Dorothy S. Ruiz, Ph.D., associate professor at the University of North Carolina, wrote in a 1999 study entitled, “Guardians and Caretakers: African American Grandmothers as Primary Caregivers in Intergenerational Families,” that the increasing number of children being raised by grandparents is due to several factors, including drugs. “Over the past decade, researchers and policy makers have shown considerable concern over the increases in grandparent-maintained households. This concern has stimulated a proliferation of research on grandparent care-giving on a wide range of issues. Among these are the impact of multiple roles on health, reasons for the rapid increase, problems and needs, social structure and extended family relationships, social support, role satisfaction, the impact of the AIDS and crack-cocaine epidemics, and emotional/physical well being.” Joseph Devall, organizing director at the Community Coalition (CoCo) in Los Angeles, agrees. “We’ve noticed the rise probably over the past 20 some odd years or so in a lot of urban areas around the country in part due to the crack epidemic that took place in the ’80s and ’90s,” he explained. “It affected women in greater numbers than any other

drug. They ended up on the trafficking and abuse side of things and were unable to take care of their kids due to incarceration or other tragic situations.” Carole B. Cox reports in “To Grandmother’s House We Go and Stay,” that due to crack cocaine, one-third of surrogate families experienced deterioration in their emotional health since beginning care-giving. She also reports that 40.7 percent of the reason why children aren’t with their mothers is due to drug abuse. Devall says more than 60 percent of the members of CoCo are grandparents 50 years old and older. With age comes challenges and raising chil-

He added that many of the challenges grandparents face include financial strain and poor health. “You deal with a lot of people who may have a retirement or pension that is only enough to care for themselves,” he said. “And they usually take in sibling groups and they are pretty large at times. We have members who have brought in six or seven kids. Even if you just brought in two children to a household where they are just making ends meet, (it is a challenge).” With the added financial burden and physical ailments, not to mention the social experiences such as class and race, the marriages and health of many grandparents suffer. The Community Coalition runs a campaign called Kinship in Action in which the organization and other supporters fight for resources for family members who have become primary caregivers for children to help relieve stress and strain. Although grandparents have legal custody, the resources and financial support are minimal. Devall explained that family caregivers are given a significantly fewer number of resources and money for children who are under their care. But help is out there.

African American buying power confirmed in NNPA-Nielsen report „ At $1 trillion, it’s larger than the GDP of most countries BY HAZEL TRICE EDNEY TRICE EDNEY NEWS WIRE

By the year 2015, African Americans will be spending $1.1 trillion a year on products and services. Currently, the Black population in the U.S. has a buying power of nearly $1 trillion—a figure larger than the gross domestic product of most countries in the world. The number of African American households earning $75,000 or more has grown by 63.9 percent in the past decade, a rate greater than that of the overall population. African Americans shop more often than all other groups, but spend less money per trip because they make quicker/smaller purchases based on short-term needs. These are just a few of the facts pulled from a new report compiled by the 71-year-old National Newspaper Publishers Association, known as the Black Press of America, and the Nielsen Co., a global monitor of media, marketing and consumer information. NNPA leaders say the report, released Sept. 22, will generally empower African Americans with the knowledge of their worth. But it will also empower Black newspapers with a new weapon—credible information about the power of Black consumers—to defeat advertising discrimination. “Every time we go and talk to advertisers, includ-

President Obama brings an up mood to House of Blues „ A lively crowd at fundraiser BY STANLEY O. WILLIFORD OW EDITOR

A lone heckler didn’t stand a chance at a House of Blues fundraising event for President Barack Obama in West Hollywood. Shortly after Obama thanked actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson of the television series, “Modern Family,” who introduced him, and recognized the presence of Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and West Hollywood Mayor John Duran, the heckler shouted something about “The Christian God is the one and only true living God, the creator of heaven and the universe.” That was about all that could be heard before the boos washed over him and slowly morphed into a chant of “four more years, four more years, four more years.” The joviality continued as security took the man out. As he was leaving he could be heard to say, “I love Jesus, Jesus Christ the son ….” Still, nothing would dull the mood of this group of mostly White loyalists. Inside, it was clearly Obama’s crowd, a group that had been standing three hours or more, buoyed by the fact that while waiting they could hear the recorded music of some of the world’s great musicians.

Outside, there were protesters against the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and immigration policies. The president began by reminding the group that back in Chicago’s Grant Park on the night that he won the highest office in the land, he had told supporters, “‘This is not the end. This is just the beginning.’ I said we’re going to have some steep hills to climb.” The president was right. Harder times are here, and there are steep hills are on the horizon. With the American economy circling the drain, his popularity at its lowest point ever and his image battered after a bruising budget fight that many believe he lost (or forfeited), harder times are definitely here. Worse, there are forces chipping away at his solid base in the Black community, where he is perceived by some to have done precious little to help African Americans who are suffering the highest level of unemployment of any ethnic group. (It didn’t help his image among many Black leaders that he told the Congressional Black Caucus that they should “stop complaining.”) All those troubles seemed far from anyone’s mind Monday as President Obama spoke to the group of about a thousand at the House of Blues. Always a facile speaker, he reminded the audience of the American dream.

That “. . . for ordinary people all across America, for working families all across America, for middle class (people) all across America, we have grown up with the belief that if you worked hard, if you met your responsibilities, if you looked after your family, if you were a responsible member of your community then you could get ahead …. But Obama said that “for the last decade it felt like that contract, that bond … had been broken, and that too many people were not being treated fairly, that the rules had been changed, that the deck had been

stacked against ordinary Americans …. “So, yes, we’re going through tough times, but the question is where we’re going to go next. We can go back to the other worn-out ideas that the other side’s been talking about, or where we say let corporations write their own rules, and we dismantle environmental regulations and we dismantle labor regulations. Where we say to you, ‘You know what? You’re on your own. Good luck, because you’re not going to get any help.’ “That’s one vision of America, but that’s not the vision we fought for in 2008. That’s not the vision you believe in; it’s not the vision I believe in, and I am confident that is not the vision America believes in. “What this election’s about is whether everybody gets a fair shake and everybody does their fair share, and that’s what I’ve been fighting for since I got to Washington,” Obama said. “By the way, we have not been getting any help from the other side. When we wanted to save the U.S. auto industry from collapse and millions of jobs might have been lost, iconic companies gone, our manufacturing base eroded, you had a whole bunch of other folks who said that was going to be a waste of time and a waste of money. “Well, you know what we did? We did it anyway. We fixed it any way. We saved those jobs. We made sure taxpayers got their money back, and today the American auto industry is stronger than ever and turning a profit and fuel-efficient cars .... That is a fight that is worth it.” The president also reminded the group of such administration successes as the passage of Wall Street reform, equal pay for equal work, the defeat of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, and the triumph of healthcare reform. The crowd cheered every one.

MTA OKs project labor agreement „ Next step is enforcement, says advocate BY CYNTHIA E. GRIFFIN OW MANAGING EDITOR

Now that the board of the Metropolitan Transit Agency (MTA) has given staff the go-ahead to begin negotiating a project labor agreement (PLA) construction careers policy with the Los Angeles and Orange County Construction Trade Council, the best way to ensure Black workers have equal access to the jobs that will be created by this new policy is to make sure the new agreement is properly enforced.

Lola Smallwood Cuevas, coordinator for the Los Angeles Black Worker Center and a strong advocate for the new effort, says the PLA legislation offers the MTA opportunity for the agency “to show leadership and usher in a new era to enforce anti-discrimination laws ensuring that Black workers, who are among the hardest hit (in terms of unemployment) have equal job opportunities. “The MTA can create good union jobs that lead workers out of poverty by implementing hiring protocol for all qualified workers to have equal job access that is free of discrimination.” Smallwood-Cuevas said the next step is proper

enforcement, which should include a centralized monitoring system to track and enforce work force diversity. But before this can happen, the PLA agreement, which passed on a 11-1 vote of the MTA board last Thursday, must be crafted and ratified. According to Dan Rosenfeld, economic senior deputy with Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, coauthor of the legislation, 30 percent of the jobs must be in ZIP codes with high unemployment and of that total, 10 percent must be provided to disadvantaged workers. If a construction project is not federally funded, the ZIP codes of high unemployment are the first tier considered, and a second tier is those areas within five miles of the project where the unemployment rate is 150 percent of the county average. For federally funded projects, the unemployment

Across Black America | OpEd

figure is 200 percent of the county average on the first tier and 150 percent on the second tier. If a project utilizes both federal and non-federal money, the federal rules apply. To be eligible for designation as a disadvantaged worker, individuals must meet at least one of the following criteria: be in a household with an income of less than 50 percent of the area median rate; be homeless; a custodial single parent; receive public assistance; lack a GED or high school diploma; have a history of involvement with the justice system or be chronically unemployed. Additionally, the PLA must contain an apprenticeship program targeting no- or low-skill residents for the high-wage construction jobs. In exchange for the PLA, Rosenfeld said the unions must agree to no work stoppages or slowdowns for the duration of the agreement.

Services set for entertainer Vesta Williams „ Found dead in an El Segundo hotel BY CYNTHIA E. GRIFFIN OW MANAGING EDITOR

Funeral services for R & B singer Mary Vesta Williams, best known for her singles “Congratulations” and “Don’t Blow a Good Thing,” will be held Tuesday at 11 a.m. at West Angeles Church of God in Christ. Williams was found dead on Sept. 22 in an El Segundo hotel. She was 53. El Segundo police said no criminal activity was suspected, but there were rumors of a drug overdose. The L.A. County Coroner’s office is awaiting toxicology results, which can take up to six weeks to obtain. The drug overdose rumors may stem from a benefit show the Ohio-born singer did about two weeks

ago at the Nate Holden Performing Arts Center in Los Angeles, where she told the audience, she had beaten two of her three addictions. “But she didn’t say what they were,” added Jeffery Suttles, Williams’ longtime drummer, who played the show with her. “She had an infectious laugh, and because she was a singer her laughter projected,” said Suttles. “Vesta was one of those people who was so talented in so many ways that it was sometimes hard to figure out where to start. She was a jack of all trades, and she mastered them.” Suttles said he first met Williams when he was working as a drum tech and she was one of the singers accompanying the Jazz Crusaders on their “Street Life” tours. The two became fast friends, and the singer invited Suttles to perform on her first album, “Vesta,” released in 1986. This disc contained the single, “Something About You.” That freshman release was followed by “Vesta 4 U” in 1988, “Special” in 1991, “Relationships” on A & M Records in 1993, “Relationships” on Polygram Records in 1998 and “Distant Lover” in 2007. Her single, “Congratulations,” which appeared on her second album, was all over the airwaves in 1989. It was also on her best-selling album, which also contained the hits “Sweet, Sweet Love,” and “4 U.”

Although she never achieved a chart topper, Williams scored six Top 10 hits on the U.S. Billboard R&B chart from the mid-1980s to the early 1990s. But the daughter of an Ohio DJ, who was bitten by the music bug in her high school years—she and her sisters appeared on the “Jack and Jill” show as The Williams sisters and she sang in a girl group Wild Honey in Ohio with band mate Freddi Poole— could never quite push through to the next level of sustainable stardom. Battles with her weight did not help the cause, which she talked about in a number of interviews. She ballooned up to size 26 on a 5-foot-3-inch frame before losing 100 pounds and dropping down to a size 6. In addition to her powerful vocals, Williams was an actress who played as a saloon singer in Mario Van Peebles movie “Posse” in 1993. She also had a recurring role on the television sitcom “Sister, Sister” as best friend Monica to Jackee Harry. Most recently Williams was preparing to perform at the 21st annual “DIVAS Simply Singing” scheduled in Los Angeles for October. She is also slated to be the subject of a TVOne “Unsung” episode, and Suttles says the cameras were rolling during the recent L.A. benefit performance. TVOne confirmed that the project is in its early production stages and should air some time at the end of 2011 or early next year.

Vesta Williams

The drummer said Williams had also just completed a seventh album. Charles Karle Bouley, who met Williams in 1988 and worked with her as a publicist, wrote in his Huffington Post obituary, “she was potential unrealized. Vesta was happy but not satisfied. She wanted more. She wanted more hit records, more tours, more albums. She wasn’t done.” Williams survived by her daughter Tandia and several grandchildren.

Between the Lines „ The fall of Troy and, hopefully, the death penalty BY ANTHONY ASADULLAH SAMAD OW CONTRIBUTOR

This time last week, the world was in shock that the United States had put Troy Davis to death. Although he was convicted of killing a Georgia cop in 1989, Davis maintained his innocence the entire 22 years he was on death row. America maintains a mentality that once convicted innocence no longer matters. America acts as if its criminal justice system is perfect. It goes without saying that it is not, but what should be said, or posed as a question, is: when does the system repent for it’s mistakes? It never does. Or it rarely does. Certainly not in Troy Davis’ case. America readily admits the flaws in its criminal justice system, but continues to kill anyway. Arch-conservative, Anton Scalia, stated: “The law doesn’t allow for claims of innocence after a conviction.” Innocence is no defense after a conviction has been rendered. So the state of Georgia and the U.S. Supreme Court complicate the mistake by continuing to make mistakes based on flawed law. Two wrongs have never made a right…unless you’re the United States government assessing the death penalty. The U.S. won’t do what it knows is right. The execution of Davis was more than a mistake; It was a national travesty. The real mistake in the Davis case was not giving him a new trial after seven of the witnesses who testified against him recanted their testimony, the same testimony that convicted Davis. Where is the sense here? What does recant mean? It means they took back what they said. Now, what credible evidence did the state have against Davis when two-thirds of the witnesses that testified against him perjured themselves. “Beyond a reasonable doubt” evaporated, and reasonable doubt replaced it. The state didn’t have a case against Davis. But that was alright…because they had a conviction, and that’s all they needed to put him to death. So, they did. Even with so much doubt. Doubt is now the scar on our national conscience. It’s there to stay.

There were a lot of variables in this case that made Davis an example. A Black man killing a White man in the South, a convicted cop killer (who almost never goes free in any state), a cause celebre runs out of chances. (Davis had three previous stays of execution, a death-penalty inmate runs out of time.) But this was a chance to make an example of America’s flawed death penalty system. We know Troy Davis is not the first innocent man put to death; nor will he be the last. We can only hope that Georgia and other death-penalty states follow the lead of Illinois, which banned the death penalty this year and commuted 15 death row inmates to life sentences without the possibility of parole. Illinois banned the death penalty after a decade of controversial executions that turned up some innocent victims after they had been put to death. More than 130 death row inmates around the nation have been saved from execution, as DNA and other more modern discoveries bring cold cases to life. Illinois got it right, recognizing that if even one innocent man was put to death that was one too many. Georgia got it wrong. It was more important for them to make an example of bad law than to reconsider good law. Davis asked that God bless the souls of the corrections personnel who were about to kill him, and that God save their souls after they kill him. In the aftermath of the execution, the media played this off as if it were some kind of sporting event. And it was on to the next thing. It was an ugly, sad commentary on American society. Troy Davis was as close to a televised execution as we’ve seen recently. The next step is the camera in the death chamber. I hope America bans the death penalty before we start to kill for “ratings.” Cable television is the modern-day Rome Colosseum. We saw how Republican supporters cheered Texas Gov. Rick Perry when he acknowledged signing more death warrants than all the states of the nation combined. Have we become that bloodthirsty as a society that we will ignore the flaws in the law? Obviously so. There’s only one thing left to kill in American society. Let’s kill the death penalty. God bless the soul of Troy Davis. God save the soul of America.

Practical Politics „ Skunking the race BY DAVID L. HORNE OW CONTRIBUTOR

Within most cultures, there are repeated patterns of behavior and character types that help to perpetuate those cultures. So it is with Black culture, which is at once a living crucible of the Black experience, in all of its finery, genius and foolishness. There is both exquisite beauty and profound ugliness in being Black in America and elsewhere, and that has been the case since our American origins. There are repeated patterns of migration from one part of the country to the other. There were at least three Great Black Migrations out of the South, for example, and these days that is being reversed. There have been patterns of protest, of family adjustment and survival, and of cultural inventiveness. There have also been mammies, ministers, Simon Legrees, Toms, Pinkies, Harriets, and Sadies, among others. During slavery and Jim Crowism, there were even race skunkers—a name given to colored individuals who regularly, rather than by accident, went out of their way to try and harm, hold back, and otherwise nullify attempts by Blacks to move forward. These individuals would sometimes try to advance themselves in one way or the other by spying on, lying on, accusing and causing injury to other Blacks. They would work unceasingly at running around to see what progress Blacks were making and trying to ruin that progress by reporting it to ‘Da Bossman.’ David Walker, the legendary Black abolitionist, in his “David Walker’s Appeal to the Colored Citizens of the World,” in 1829-30, described it thusly: “Some of those ignorant and treacherous creatures (colored people) sneaking about in the large cities, endeavoring to find out all strange colored people, where they work and where they reside, asking them questions and trying to ascertain whether they are runaways or not, telling them, at the same time, that they always have been, are, and always will be, friends to their brethren; and perhaps, that they themselves are

CBC gathering shows complexity of Black America BY JULIANNE MALVEAUX OW CONTRIBUTOR

I don’t know how many African American people came to Washington for the Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Conference (ALC), but there were more than 5,000 gathered at the dinner that featured President Barack Obama as a speaker. Although the halls of the Washington Convention Center were full, and it did my eyes good to see people lined up to buy books, some say that the economy may have dampened attendance. To be sure, the corporate presence did not seem as strong as it has been in the past, yet

it is always gratifying to see Ingrid Sanders Jones and the Coca-Cola company sponsoring the prayer breakfast, which sizzled this year when the Rev. Freddy Haynes totally threw down. The high point of the conference may have been President Obama’s strident and almost angry speech, challenging Congress to pass the jobs bill, and explaining why it must pass. Watching the president, he appeared to be undaunted, but certainly frustrated, by the legislative gridlock and the total lack of cooperation he has been experiencing from Congress. If those assembled reach out to their legislative representatives, not all of whom are CBC members, perhaps it will make some difference. Another high point of the dinner was the range of wonderful honorees present. They included

Environmental Protection Agency administrator Lisa Jackson, and also the indomitable Rev. Joe Lowery, who at nearly 90, has as much fire in his belly as he did 50 years ago. He lifted his fist, roused the crowd, and exhorted us to keep fighting injustice. He is an amazing example of a civil rights warrior, and he deserves every honor that is bestowed on him. That may have been the highest point but, from my perspective, the legislative conference contained many highs. There were more than one hundred brain trusts, panels, or other gatherings both at the convention center and in nearby places, as several organizations also use the legislative conference week as a time to organize their own meetings. The White House HBCU initiative, for example, held its conference on the Monday and Tuesday

absconders (too), and a thousand such treacherous lies to get the better information of the more ignorant. There have been and are to this day in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and Baltimore, coloured men, who are in league with tyrants, and who receive a great portion of their daily bread, of the moneys which they acquire from the blood and tears of their more miserable brethren whom they scandalously delivered into the hands of our natural enemies!” These folk would hear about Harriet Tubman coming to ferry a load of slaves away to freedom, would sometimes even squirrel their way into the group, and then try to turn the fugitives back to the plantation or to point out their escape route to the slave-catchers, hoping to get them all re-captured and beaten. Ms. Tubman, famously, had a pistol waiting for that kind of traitorous coward. So today, we see the pattern repeated. There are those recent mega-city bus tours paid for by shadowy funders to travel to cities where Black folk reside just to shout down and downgrade a brother who happens to be the president of the United States (POTUS) right now. Although the stated purpose is to pressure the White House into dealing more directly with the plight of poor people, the Black men who are the designated deniers and destroyers of Black progress and who are the advance men on this traveling minstrel show have as their real purpose to remind Black people in America not to get the idea that the status quo has really changed; that Black folk are still on the bottom, will stay on the bottom, and that they deserve the bottom in spite of one or two at the top. These messengers of meanness throw a rock and hide their hands. They say they are our friends and brethren who only seek the best way forward for us; that they must exercise their freedom to speak out by negating and tainting the achievement of a Black man in the White House, all for our own collective good. As usual, however, it is another work of smoke and mirrors, lies and deception. These advance men stay true to their character-flaw pattern. Their real purpose is to keep Black people victimized and down-trodden, to insult, humiliate and pull down the prestige of one of us who stands for all of us. This is classic race skunking. And it continues. This week, it was announced that one of these designated dissers and deniers had sealed a partnership with a White politician known

before the CBC legislative conference. With everything that is going on, the ALC is a cross between a policy conference, a family reunion, with a few evening parties thrown in for good measure. Somehow the majority press gets away with focusing only on the party aspect of the gathering. The Washington Post printed a piece that talked about the ingredients for a successful CBC party. Ho, hum. Why not a piece about the ingredients for a successful brain trust? Why not some reporting on the range of issues addressed. There were panels on the environment, the foster care system, education, wealth, business development, criminal justice, global affairs and more. A highlight for me was visiting with students from four elementary and high schools that were organized by Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX). The panel’s task was to encourage them to consid-

OHIO HBCU Connect recently published the most complete listing of homecoming dates and football classics for the nation’s 105 Historically Black Colleges and Universities. A tradition that has gone back for more than 100 years, Black college homecomings draw thousands of professional African Americans to their alma maters to enjoy tailgating, college football, and reconnecting with old classmates. “Homecomings are actually the largest draw to our HBCU campuses each year, so we thought we would do our part and make it an annual tradition to publish an official list for our members and website visitors,” says Will Moss, founder and current CEO of HBCU Connect. Forward-thinking companies are also capitalizing on the opportunity to connect with the growing population of professional African Americans that participate in the homecoming festivities. Torin Ellis, a member of the business development team for HBCUConnect.com added, “This year we have had quite a bit of participation from some really great partners.

Practical Politics from OPED page 8 for his regular attempts at wrecking Democratic Party presidential campaigns—Ralph Nader. The latter, who, at one time, may have actually been a principled political protester, is now recognized as a paid spoiler who only helps the other major party candidates to become president. It happened in 2000. It was tried in 2004. Now, a leading Black man, Cornel West, Ph.D., who should know better, has partnered with Nader to try and scuttle the incumbency of Barack Obama by running candidates against him in primaries, rather than to accept Mr. Obama as the automatic Democratic Party nominee for re-election. Tavis Smiley, his other partner, continues to write blogs and media articles attacking the character and policies of Obama. In other words, the race-skunking pattern continues alive and unwell among us. There should be no significant Black progress, says the mantra of people like those as described by David Walker, and any such attempt at achieving it, particularly game-changing attempts, must be undermined and ultimately destroyed.

Governor’s pen moves Farmers Field closer to construction „ Thousands of temporary and permanent jobs projected BY OW STAFF

Farmers Field got punted onto the fast track recently, as Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill that would help speed construction of the much-ballyhooed football stadium Brown signed SB 292 at a press conference and signing ceremony Tuesday at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The bill, SB 292, will hurry the construction of Farmers Field, which is being financed by developer Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) and is sched-

uled to open by 2016. The bill also includes renovation of the Convention Center’s West Hall. “This is a big step forward for our economic recovery,” said Assembly member Steven C. Bradford (D-Gardena), a coauthor of SB 292. “We’re going to put a lot of people to work at a time when people need jobs.” Economic analyses of the stadium proposal by both AEG and the city of Los Angeles suggest that as many as 12,000 temporary and permanent jobs may result from construction and operation of the stadium. The $1.3 billion deal, which does not

The governor also signed AB 900, a companion jobs bill that is modeled after SB 292. It will fast-track other large project proposals in order to bring jobs to the state as quickly as possible. The project is supported by the Environmental Resources Defense Council, the California League of Conservation Voters, and the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO. “Today we showed how to bring competing interests together for the good of the state,” Bradford continued. “This project is a model of collaboration and partnership.” The signing ceremony was attended by the governor, Assembly Speaker John Pérez, Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, former Gov. Gray Davis, AEG President and CEO Tim Leiweke, labor leaders and other public officials.

Buying power from FEATURE STORY page 4 have a partner that can legitimize all the things we talk about when we talk about African American consumers.” The 19-page report, “The State of the African American Consumer,” was released during a conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. NNPA, a federation of more than 200 Black-owned newspapers around the country, has long battled bias against the Black Press, in part because of the undocumented spending power Black newspaper readers. Now that the documentation is complete, Cheryl Pearson-McNeil, senior vice president of Public Affairs at the Nielsen Co., says it can be used for Black newspapers as well as other Black institutions. “This report really is a valuable piece of communication that I am so hopeful that your companies, your organizations, your businesses will be able to utilize to help tell the African American consumer story,” Pearson-McNeil told the standing-room

On Thursday around 7:25 p.m., officers investigated the shooting at the office in the 6700 block of South Centinela Avenue near the San Diego (405) Freeway in response to a report of glass breaking, said Officer Sara Faden, a Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman.

“There were four campaign workers in a back part of the offices and they heard the noise of glass. When they went to the front, they saw the glass with pellet gunshots in it,” added Sgt.

only audience at the press conference. Among those present were NNPA publishers, corporate and advertising executives as well as representatives of the civil rights and legal communities. “This is going to have a tremendous rippling affect. The bottom line is that at the end of the day, we want to hold people accountable,” said Danny Bakewell, former NNPA chairman who initiated the NielsenNNPA partnership that led to the study. “We spend our money. We expect you to be a good corporate citizen and return a fair share to our community at all levels. If we represent 25 percent of your market share, it’s not unreasonable for us to ask for 25 percent return to our community.” Campbell said he sees the report working in three ways for the average Black citizen: "One, making them more aware of what their buying and purchasing power is. Two, giving them an opportunity to understand all the products that they use and all the services that they spend money on. And three, giving them the opportunity to empower themselves, to be more assertive when they go to spend their dollars, and make sure that people understand and

respect the fact that we come to your stores, we spend our dollars, we make sure that your businesses are in business and so it’s an overall effect that happens from it.” Bakewell agreed with Pearson-McNeil that the report will be used by various organizations for diverse purposes. For example, he said it will also be given as a tool to members of the Congressional Black Caucus and civil rights leaders. But, mostly it is viewed as the ultimate Nielsen-confirmed evidence that Black corporations have downplayed the value of the Black dollar—evidence that can now be used as leverage. “What it will do is substantiate in the minds of Black people the power that we have based on the money that we’re spending and, specifically, allow us to direct our recognition to certain companies that we’re spending our money with,” said Bakewell, publisher of the Los Angeles Sentinel. “And when those companies recognize the kind of buying power that we have, it then gives us more influence with those companies. And of course the reverse of that is that to the extent that they’re not supporting our communities, then why should we be supporting them?”

Black folk on the news „ ‘I saw the whole thang’ BY JULIANA NORWOOD OW STAFF WRITER/OV EDITOR

The news media are criticized many times for the heavy and often biased coverage of minorities, particularly young Black men, involved in crimes. This is more the case than with movies and music videos, which most logical Americans can distinguish between as acting versus reality. By contrast, the news is supposed to provide an unbiased, reliable portrayal of its subjects. Then why isn’t unbiased reporting the case? Although this kind of reporting has been happening as long as anyone can remember, lately there seems to have been a spate of the “ignorant interviewee.” It almost seems as if field reporters seek out the most ignorant looking, sounding, speaking person they can find on the streets to get reactions to various crimes or current events. Blacks aren’t alone in this misrepresentation; many times the same is done with Latino Americans, once again seeking out the witness who speaks the most broken English to give their account of what happened. Are we really expected to believe that in no cases is there an educated minority anywhere to be found who can be interviewed? Maybe educated is asking too much; can we at least find someone with a solid command of the English language? Honestly, the Black, loud-mouthed “I saw the whole thang” interviewee in most cases is much more of an embarrassment than the suspected Black criminal. The latest example to get a multitude of attention was the Antoine Dodson “Bed Intruder” sensation. Dodson, of Huntsville, Ala., was interviewed after someone broke into his apartment and attempted to rape his sister Kelly Dodson. The interview, in which the reporter spoke to both the family members, focused more heavily on Antoine, the flamboyant, head-rag-tied brother, rather than the actual victim. Some local viewers phoned the television station to complain that interviews with people such as Dodson reflected poorly on the community, and the station defended broadcasting the interview by stating that censoring such people is “far worse.” Jonathan Capehart, editorial page writer for the Washington Post, wrote that Dodson became an instant Internet sensation because “in this age of fake reality TV, he puts the real in reality,” to which he later added that Dodson “is one of the strongest people we’ve seen in a while.” Therein lies the problem. By broadcasting his interview and praising it for how “real” it was it furthered the impression that this is what people act, talk, and look like in the Black community. Not only did the interview go viral, getting millions of views, but Youtuber’s turned the interview into an auto-tuned song and music video which sold more than 250,000 copies on iTunes, and spawned an entire product line including T-shirts and even Halloween costumes (complete with the head rag … yessss). Truthfully, more power to the Dodson family. Their exploitation actually paid off (literally) giving them money to get a new home outside of the projects and made Antoine an overnight celebrity. I guess you can’t be mad at that. We can’t pretend that the Antoine Dodson types do not exist; the problem comes in when the majority of media coverage only portrays this extremely narrow slice of the spectrum. When was the last time you saw a Black person in a suit getting interviewed? I do, however, remember the Black man with three teeth (one of which was gold, of course) from the news just last night … no clue what the story was about.

Report blames financial institutions for home-buyer defaults „ One group launches a protest movement BY GREGG REESE OW CONTRIBUTOR

In the wake of another swell in the number of foreclosures in California (as conveyed by RealtyTrac, the online foreclosure listing), a recent report declared that the plight of home-buyer defaults has cost the state in excess of $130 billion, with an estimated $78 billion lost in homeowner equity just in Los Angeles. Provocatively titled “The Wall Street Wrecking Ball,” the report gives an account of lost home and property values, tax revenues, and additional punitive costs at the government level. It lays the blame squarely at the feet of financial institutions overly concerned with profit margins, and the desire to write questionable loans for short-term earnings, with little regard for long-term ramifications. The report was released two weeks ago, on Sept. 15. Kevin Stein of the California Reinvestment Coalition (sponsors of the report in tandem with the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment, also known as ACCE), a contributing writer to the report, said that the data was compiled from a variety of sources, including the U.S. Census, the U.S. Joint Economic Committee, and educational institutions including the Georgia Institute of Technology and Marquette University. Stein traces the beginnings of the current misfor-

tune to the practice of bad loan writing. More specifically he says, “ … people got stuck with loans they could not afford, did not deserve, and in some cases couldn’t even understand.” The report concentrated on five major cities (Los Angeles, Oakland, Sacramento, San Jose and San Francisco), but the actual losses in property value across the state may be substantially higher. Among the factors contributing to this calamity, the report states, is the fact that California has been hardest hit, with one in five foreclosed homes located in the Golden State; and a third of mortgage-holders owing more than the actual worth of their homes (also known as negative equity or “underwater” or “upside down” mortgages). On top of the devastating effect on an individual household, a single foreclosure negatively impacts the property value of other homes in the immediate vicinity, and tears away taxes and revenues for public services. Finally, foreclosed homes lie empty often without proper maintenance, further eroding property values and attracting “squatters,” and potential lawbreakers. All in all, this inhibits the ability of the economy as a whole to regain solvency and recover from the depression/recession, and perpetuates a vicious cycle. Stein remains skeptical about efforts to rectify the situation. “Now, banks are supposed to be modifying loans and helping people avoid foreclosure, but we know this isn’t happening as it should,” he said. At the grassroots level, harsh economic times have

served to politicize working-class homeowners who’ve borne the brunt of this real estate turmoil. Peggy Mears is a prime example. Having worked a variety of vocations, including in the healthcare and financial industries, she began to experience problems meeting financial obligations with her mortgage carrier, One West Bank, in October of 2010, after 20 years of faithfully paying her house notes in a timely manner. In particular, Mears takes issue with the process of “dual tracking,” in which banks dutifully go through the motions of loan modification while simultaneously filing foreclosure paperwork. Frustrated by what she and other besieged home-

owners felt were the abrasive attitudes of lien holders in general, Mears was compelled to borrow a page from the recent history of civil disobedience, in the tradition of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. By December, she and 21 other individuals, including the Rev. Lewis Logan, pastor of the local Ruach Christian Community Fellowship, took the dramatic initiative of moving furniture into a downtown branch of the Chase banking and financial services conglomerate, where ACCE staged a “sit-in” reminiscent of the protest movements of the 1960s. This nonviolent protest continued until they were arrested. Mears explained ACCE’s motivation thusly: “Since Chase would not let our members keep their homes, we decided to ‘move’ into theirs.” Since then, Mears has been active within the fold of ACCE as an activist and organizer to the point where she was granted an economic reprieve in the form of employment as an ACCE staff member in August. Summing up her recent experiences, she states flatly, “Had I not become involved with ACCE, I would not have my home today.” Recently, Mears was on her way to La Puente to demonstrate support for another ACCE member about to be evicted from her home. The group remains committed to passive resistance and the possibility of incarceration for their beliefs. As the nation’s financial straits, and arguably its most prominent component—the issue of home fore-

An Ultimate Transformation Moment „ Academic guidelines BY ERICH C. NALL (COACH E) OW CONTRIBUTOR

This week’s Ultimate Transformation Moment seeks to re-establish some of the basic ground rules for academic achievement. Turn off the television. The first rule during the school week, is to minimize the amount of television your children watch. If you would like, allow them to treat themselves during the weekend, for the duration that you are comfortable with. But during the academic week, the television remains off. Second rule: require your child to read at least 30 minutes every day in addition to any homework they may have. During their first few years, after they become readers, have them read aloud to you. What they read is less important than the fact that they are reading. Know this, if your child can learn one new vocabulary word per week in a year’s time, 52 weeks, they can raise their I.Q. by 10 points. Third rule: focus on math skills. Regardless of the grade level, always review the basics. Not only must they know their addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts, they should have them memorized, and know them quickly. The better they are with the basic facts, the better they are moving into Algebra, Algebra II, Trigonometry and all the other advanced mathematics courses. There will be more than 1.2 million jobs in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM-related) occupations by 2018. The kindergarten through 12th grades are critical times for learning these advanced math skills. Finally, rely on your community. We all have busy work schedules and sometimes it is tremendously

helpful if one neighbor or family member hosts several children for study/homework gatherings. The host parent may monitor the homework, check on due dates, and make sure the children understand the importance of meeting deadlines and getting the work done on time. It also helps each other, because not every parent can get home every day at five o’clock, have dinner ready and help children get their homework done. So, let’s start to form small groups in the community or family, where our children can gather in one home or library to study together, and review what needs to be done on a weekly basis.

Black men celebrate years of serving L.A. „ Programs still thrive three decades later BY JULIANA NORWOOD OW STAFF WRITER

Look, our children are our responsibility and as parents it is our job to set these guidelines for their success. Their academic success opens many doors. Once the doors within them begin to open, youngsters become free to create and work on the genius within. We are here to lay the foundation. That’s our Ultimate Transformations Moment. Peace and be more. Erich Nall is the owner and founder of Ultimate Transformations Training in Los Angeles, Calif. He is the author of “21 Days to Ultimate Health and Wellness.” He is also a regular guest and commentator on KJLH 102.3 FM’s the “Front Page” with Dominique DiPrima.

Founded in 1981, 100 Black Men of Los Angeles Inc. (“100 BMLA”) has served the greater Los Angeles community for nearly 30 years. Comprised of men from law, medicine, architecture, business, politics and education, 100 BMLA is committed to using knowledge, skill and ability for the betterment of the community. “Using the national motto ‘Real Men Giving Real Time,’ as a guide, we invest in the greater Los Angeles community through our flagship programs—Young Black Scholars (YBS) and the See Your Future Mentoring Program. Combined with our annual economic and health-related activities, 100 BMLA programs embody our national Four for the Future mandate to positively impact education, mentoring, economic development, and health and wellness,” said President Jewett Walker in a statement. The 100 Black Men of Los Angeles Inc. is a nonprofit civic and community-based organization that serves as a catalyst to improve the quality of life for Blacks, other minorities and the disadvantaged and underrepresented segments of the community through the enhancement of educational and economic opportunities. The 100 Black Men of Los Angeles provides support for and focuses on: mentoring, education, health and wellness and education programs emphasizing mentoring services, economic development, scholarship, and sponsoring YBS, the key program of the organization. The Young Black Scholars Program began as a solution to the 1983 California Post Secondary Education Commission study that indicated an alarming disparity in African American students who didn’t meet the University of California entrance requirements upon high school graduation. At that time, only 3.6 percent of the 25,000 African American high school graduates in California were eligible for entrance into the California State University System. In an effort to exceed those statistics, the 100BMLA officially implemented the YBS program, which to date has served approximately 14,000 students.

In addition to the numerous programs that the organization hosts each year to benefit disadvantaged youth, 100 BMLA also holds a major event annually to raise money for the organization. This year the 30th anniversary gala is set for Oct. 21 at the J.W. Marriott within LA Live. The honorees are: Man of the Year, Earvin “Magic” Johnson; Woman of the Year, Sandra EversManley (vice president corporate responsibility Northrop Grumman); Lifetime Achievement Award, Marla Gibbs; Special Achievement Award, Fred Calloway and L.A. County Fire Chief Daryl Osby; and Corporate Community Partner Award, Kevin McDowell (AEG executive vice president). There are a number of ways businesses and members of the community can contribute to the organization and the gala. Individual tickets are $250, and there are also a number of sponsorship options ranging from $2,500 for table sponsors to $75,000 and above for platinum sponsors. Businesses can also purchase ad space in the program booklet. Proceeds from the event will serve to further facilitate the invaluable services that 100 BMLA provides to the community. For more information on the event and the organization, visit the website at www.100bmla.org.

Foreclosure from NEWS page 11 closure—dominate the news, Mears and other afflicted victims continue to mobilize in response. On Sept. 22, members of ACCE met in front of the Grape Street Elementary School in Watts to dramatize the situation. They walked several feet from the school to one of the foreclosed houses that has been left unattended and unmaintained, contributing to the overall blight of the neighborhood. The organization has also designated Monday as the start of an official “week of action.” ACCE will redouble its efforts in tandem with Clean L.A., SEIU Local #721, United Teachers of Los Angeles, and other organizations. They will randomly pick a downtown area bank in which to stage a “teach-in” to instruct patrons about fraudulent bank practices and other related topics. On Tuesday, they plan to disrupt a banker’s meeting, hold a press conference in front of a bank CEO’s personal residence, and on Thursday gather hundreds for a “Mass Action Day” rally to demand that banks pay a “fair share” of taxes and other forms of repayment to homeowners and other victims of the recession. More information about these activities may be accessed at the website, www.makebankspaycalifornia.com/. The report, “The Wall Street Wrecking Ball,” can be found at ACCE’s website: www.calorganize.org/.


„ Introducing Bounce TV BY GAIL CHOICE OW CONTRIBUTOR

There is a new network on the air, Bounce TV. We’re not able to get it in Los Angeles just yet, but there is no stopping the movers and shakers who put this business venture together. Bounce TV is the first African American broadcast network, featuring a programming mix of theatrical motion pictures, sporting events, documentaries, specials, inspirational faith-based programs, off-network series, original programming and more. Bounce TV’s founders include Martin Luther King III, Ambassador Andrew Young, Andrew “Bo” Young III, as well as Rob Hardy and Will Packer, cofounders of Rainforest Films, one of the top African American production companies in the world. The Atlanta-based company brought us such favorites as, “Stomp the Yard,” “This Christmas,” “Obsessed,” and “Takers.” “We have shown station groups the strong need for a free, over-the-air network for African American consumers,” Bounce TV President Ryan Glover told SNL Kagan media, an online publication that focuses on business sectors such as communications and media. “There are nearly 13 million Hispanic television households that are served by dozens of Spanish and Spanish-language versions of networks. Yet, the more than 14 million African American TV households have just a few dedicated cable channels and no overthe-air networks.” He added, “When you factor in that African Americans watch more television than

the U.S. average and more than any other measured ethnicity, the facts speak for themselves showing the need to carry Bounce TV.” Asked why he had decided now was the right time to launch Bounce TV, Glover noted that he has long felt programming options for African Americans were too limited. “Now, with local broadcast stations having bandwidth they need to utilize, there is a strong need for meaningful programming for digital signals,” he said. “This opportunity opened the door for the ideas we’ve been kicking around to become Bounce TV.” The Atlanta-based network will offer programming on a regular basis that no other channel offers, including your favorite Historically Black Colleges and Universities sports teams. Live football and basketball games will be aired along with a weekly highlights show, “Inside The Game.” Coverage of HBCU games is part of the unique programming you’ll only find on Bounce TV. Bounce has a multi-year rights agreement with Urban Sports Entertainment Group to televise football and basketball games from the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association, the country’s largest African American athletic conference. “We have made strategic and intelligent [content] acquisitions,” Glover said, noting that Bounce has also locked up rights to hundreds of African American motion pictures from NBCUniversal Media LLC, Sony Corp., Codeblack Entertainment and Image Entertainment, including Will Smith’s “Ali;” Jamie Foxx’s “Ray;” Denzel Washington’s “The Hurricane,” “Philadelphia” and “Glory,” as well as Sidney Poitier’s “A Raisin in the Sun.” “We have done a great deal of research to help guide these strategic pursuits,” Glover said. You can visit Bounce TV’s website at www.bouncetv.com to find out about their programming and exactly where they are currently on the air. A recent Bounce TV press release reported that the network would launch on KAXT in LA. Don’t want to steer you wrong, but I looked it up and had no luck. KAXT-CA is a television station in the Santa Clara-San Jose area that serves the San FranciscoOakland- San Jose television market. I will keep you posted.

from OPED page 8 er careers in math and science. With a NASA astronaut, a math educator, an engineer, and this economist on the panel, the students got lots of reinforcement to consider untraditional careers. It was great to see young people gathered and open to learning. Congressman Elijah Cummings always puts together a panel on youth, which is attended by young people from his congressional district in Baltimore. This year, Cora Masters Barry moderated the panel and brought her young people from D.C.’s Southeast Tennis and Learning center. Four Bennett students, and hundreds of college students from other campuses, were in attendance. While the cynical may say that the CBC conference is the “same old, same old,” it is interesting to view the ALC through the fresh eyes of our young people who are so eager to learn and to make a difference.

Women’s issues were also well represented. Melanie Campbell convened the Black Women’s Roundtable with an overflow crowd. Congresswoman Karen Bass (D-Calif.) convened the International Black Women’s Policy Forum to explore the issue of health disparities. Tony Brown once said that if the ALC were canceled for just one year, that money could be used to fund significant initiatives in Black America. He may be right. At the same time, I’d like to challenge the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation to document some of the outcomes of the ALC, which might include legislation inspired, business deals closed, scholarships funded, students exposed. If the accomplishments were clearly documented, perhaps the mainstream press would talk purpose, not party, when they reference next year’s ALC.
