The sad truth is that from the president on down our leadership has no clue no clue at all.
About how to solve problems within the black community and many are frightened even broach the issue.
That's because race hustlers and the grievance.
Have intimidated the so called conversation.
Turning any valid criticism of African American culture into charges of racial box.
So many in power simply walk away leaving millions of law abiding African Americans are pretty much fend for themselves.
