An impression of
Black Perspectives
                                     










by
        SHANNON
         A few of the things learned at the Black Think Tank
        
        Facts:
          1. The first Americans or native Americans going back to
              13,000 BC were black! Look up the Folsom people who
              lived in Arizona.
         
          2. One of the best reason to stop our use of the term African 
              American and say Black. A white person who was born in
              Africa, who moves to America is an African American and 
              qualifies for financial aid, etc., but will get the jobs/pay
              privileges afforded to whites.
        
          3. Look up the Slavery Law of 1665 (which stayed in effect until
              1968)and the Maryland Doctrine of Exclusion (1638): both
              laws state that blacks must be excluded from the benefits 
              afforded whites and that blacks must remain Noncompetitive
              with whites, except in sports and entertainment.
        
        4. Two white men: Bill Gates and Larry Elision, combined have
             more wealth than the combined wealth of all 36 million
             blacks in America. 
             Civil Rights did not change the economic landscape or the
             balance of power in America.
        
         5. Asians received 80% of all government minority set aside
             contracts. Hello!!
       
         6. Blacks eat more fish than whites by a 4 to 1 margin. For 
             every dollar whites spend on fish, blacks spend $9 on fish.
             Fish sold wholesale for $1 will retail at $2.50 - $3.00. Guess
             what business we should be in as Blacks?
        

         7. There are no black owned national cable or major network 
             television stations. The black woman who owns our only
             black owned radio stations,plans to sell to white owners after
             hearing the deal Bob Johnson received for selling BET.
             (Cathy Hughes is from OMAHA . . .yall!)
         8. There are no black owned companies on the Wall Street
              Stock Exchange where blacks own the majority or controlling
              interest of the stock.
       
         9.  Ninety-six % of all black inmates are men.
     
      10.  Over the next two years 440,000 black inmates will be
             released from prison. The State has no place to put them
             as they re-enter society. A profitable business would be
             a Halfway house!

     
      11.  In 1860, 98% of all Blacks in America worked for White
             people.  In 2001, 98% of all Blacks in America still work for
             white people.
     
      12. In 1860, blacks in America had a combined net worth of 
            one half of 1%
            point. Guess what, . . .in 2001, after Civil Rights, Jesse
            Jackson, Oprah,Shaq, NAACP, and Urban League, our 
            combined net worth is half a
            percentage point.
     
      13. For every dollar earned by a Jewish person, that dollar
            touches 12-18 Jewish hands before it leaves their 
            community. For every dollar earned by a black person it
            leaves the community soon as he or she earns it.
     
      14. The last week of April 2003 in Washington, DC black
            teenagers where arrested and booked for eating 
            McDonalds on the metro subway. Cops cited the recent 5-4
            court decision as the permission to arrest lawbreakers even 
            for minor offenses.
     
      15. Sixty-seven percent of all hate crimes in America are
            against blacks.  
            After we get through being pleased that we have carpet in
            our office, a secretary, our name on the door and make six
            figures, we do not own  anything. What will happen if you
            miss 6 months of work without pay? All we have left our
            children is debt not an inheritance. You cannot pass welfare
            or food stamps onto our kids as a nest egg! We are not
            even in the race.

By the way, the word "race" hit the English language in the 16th century when Europeans held a contest to see who will win the race to gather the most wealth through exploitation of blacks.

You must read Powernomics by Claude Anderson. This is our blueprint to create wealth, not just have a job, but be a business owner, so you can hire people, be listed on the stock exchange, develop businesses to meet our needs. This is "Good Food" for thought.

Poetry and Prose by Students Everywhere and Anywhere


I am from the USA
JUSTIN WILLIAMS
b. 1/28/88

I am from a neighborhood where trouble starts
And ends with a killing
I am from endurance that allows me to
Take punishment physically, mentally and emotionally
To be taunted and getting in to altercations like
It's another day at the office.
But I am from resiliency that keeps me
Coming back for more
I am from a family that when together
Feels like joy and light
When they go through difficult times
They become stressed out and separated like sadness and darkness
I come from an apartment that was old and rusty
But now is new and shiny
I am from a room where all my belongings are
Where my Undertaker poster takes me in a new dimension
I am from my Amare Stodemire poster
Making "And Ones" and 360 dunks on people that stand still like trees
I am from 1412 Commonwealth Avenue where I rode
My bike up a hill like I was going up Mt. Everest
I am from a saying "the bigger they are
The harder they fall"
I am from the U.S.A. where red, white and blue
Symbolizes freedom for all
I am from the God who created me
To be on earth like another flower
That's where I am from, God bless U.S.A.
Companeros
KELLY GARCIA
b. 9/23/85

I never thought I would be here.
Sitting down in this brown plain chair.
In a foreign place.
I never felt so scared.
Why me, maybe it is the way I look,
Do they know all the facts
Mis Companeros in U.S.A.?
I thought they were my classmates
They did not care about my name
They called me Hondurena
Mis Companeros
I never cared where they were from
Never cared about their skin color
All I wanted was for them
To be Mis Companeros



What is Freedom?
CARRIE SMITH


Are any of our actions free?

Are they taken because we want them to be,

Or are they done because they are

what is expected?


Can one truly live a life completely free,

Or is our freedom restricted to a criterion

Made by a system that controls

People and tries to mold them

into what everyone wants them to be?



Invisible Black Man
Dr. Mark Dean
"America's High Tech "Invisible Man"
By Tyrone D. Taborn






You may not have heard of Dr. Mark Dean. And you aren't alone. But
almost everything in your life has been affected by his work.

See, Dr. Mark Dean is a Ph.D. from Stanford University. He is in the
National Hall of Inventors. He has more than 30 patents pending. He is a vice president with IBM. Oh, yeah. And he is also the architect of the modern-day personal computer. Dr. Dean holds three of the original nine patents on the computer that all PCs are based upon. And, Dr. Mark Dean is an African American.

So how is it that we can celebrate the anniversary of the IBM
personal computer without reading or hearing a single word about him?
Given all of the pressure mass media are under about negative portrayals
of African Americans on television and in print, you would think it
would be a slam dunk to highlight someone like Dr. Dean.

Somehow, though, we have managed to miss the shot. History is cruel
when it comes to telling the stories of African Americans. Dr. Dean isn't
the first Black inventor to be overlooked. Consider John Stanard, inventor
of the refrigerator, George Sampson, creator of the clothes dryer,
Alexander Miles and his elevator, Lewis Latimer and the electric lamp.
All of these inventors share two things:

One, they changed the landscape of our society; and, two, society
relegated them to the footnotes of history. Hopefully, Dr. Mark Dean
won't go away as quietly as they did. He certainly shouldn't. Dr. Dean
helped start a Digital Revolution that created people like Microsoft's
Bill Gates and Dell Computer's Michael Dell. Millions of jobs in
information technology can be traced back directly to Dr. Dean.

More important, stories like Dr. Mark Dean's should serve as
inspiration for African-American children. Already victims of the
"Digital Divide" and failing school systems, young, Black kids might
embrace technology with more enthusiasm if they knew someone like
Dr. Dean already was leading the way.

Although technically Dr. Dean can't be credited with creating the
computer -- that is left to Alan Turing, a pioneering 20th-century English
mathematician, widely considered to be the father of modern computer
science -- Dr. Dean rightly deserves to take a bow for the machine we
use today. The computer really wasn't practical for home or small
business use until he came along, leading a team that developed the
interior architecture (ISA systems bus) that enables multiple devices,
such as modems and printers, to be connected to personal computers.

In other words, because of Dr. Dean, the PC became a part of our daily lives For most of us, changing the face of society would have been enough. But not for Dr. Dean. Still in his early forties, he has a lot of inventing left in him.

He recently made history again by leading the design team responsible for
creating the first 1-gigahertz processor chip. It's just another huge step in
making computers faster and smaller. As the world congratulates itself for
the new Digital Age brought on by the personal computer, we need to
guarantee that the African-American story is part of the hoopla surrounding
the most stunning technological advance the world has ever seen. We cannot afford to let Dr. Mark Dean become a footnote in history. He is well worth his own history book.







A Good Friend

A good friend is someone we turn to
when our spirit needs a lift
A good friend is someone we treasure
for our friendship is a gift
A good friend is someone who fills our
lives with beauty, joy, and grace
And makes the whole world we live in a
better and  happy place
