Jobs or Do for Self?
Tonight on 60 Minutes, the Federal Reserve Chairman told us the job situation may not improve until four or five years from now, if then, for surely he does not know, only pontificating in the manner of white supremacy spin doctors. He admitted that although the corporations and banks have been replenished from their pyramid schemes, to the tune of three trillion dollars, including banks around the world, the bankers are hording their wealth, their new found profits and bonuses.
They are making no loans, nor are the corporations hiring. Yes, they are hoarding the wealth. So the Fed Chairman is putting 600 billion more into the economy to entice the robbers to share the wealth. Will they do so? What will make them break down into civility? Mao told us the reactionaries will never put down their butcher knives, they will never turn into Buddha heads!
Not many have proclaimed they will do as Bill Gates and Warren Buffe’t have done, agree to share their wealth. Of course, in their contempt for the people, the robber barons cannot conceive of sharing, not until they face the wrath of the people, when the lethargic, passive and pitiful Americans hit the streets in the manner of the Greeks, French, English and Irish, who’ve
been protesting the resulting austerity measures instituted after the economic meltdown caused by international finance, under the leadership of American capitalists, including the wicked Federal Reserve that is neither Federal nor the reserve of the people, but the bankers bank for the blood suckers of the poor around the world. Did the Federal Reserve bail out the suffering American people? Did they bail out those scammed out of their basic wealth? Do the corporations plan to rehire any of the laid off workers any time soon? No indeed.
And so what shall we do, meantime, stand around with our dicks in our hands and our hearts racing? Your President says he has jobs for terrorists in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen, if they lay down their guns and pledge loyalty to one of the American protectorates in the above nations, yet the president nor the congress, Democrats or Republications, can come up with a solution to the job crisis in America, especially for the boyz in the hood, the perennially unemployed, underemployed, uneducated, criminalized and despised; those suffering from traumatic stress from violence in the streets, unresolved grief, disposed to sell dope, murder and pimp to survive, who soon find themselves incarcerated and suddenly a ward of the state wherein they are a commodity worth between fifty and sixty thousand dollars per inmate per year. And guest what, after incarceration, they suddenly find employment at 100%. The correctional officers tell them upon release, “Hurry up and come back. I got a yacht for myself, I need to get one for my son.”
Perhaps we can find a solution to our economic conundrum from the program for American veterans coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan. They have a program for vets suffering post traumatic stress syndrome since they realize most of these men and women shall never be able to hold down a normal job. They are training them to be entrepreneurs that will be able to operate their own businesses. I maintain we must use this model for our young men and women in the hood who suffer traumatic stress from war in the hood, call it the war on drugs, the war against the poor, the war against the wretched and despised, but war none the less, a low intensity war that lingers on into the night and into the day.
I hate to sound repetitious and redundant, but the brothers and sisters in the hood can be given micro loans to come up, as people are doing around the world, based on the model established by Muhammad Unis who won the Noble Peace Prize for his effort at helping the poor.
But rather than help the poor, the bourgeoisie has a pattern of taking ideas for the poor and using them to uplift the middle class while the poor languish in poverty, ignorance and disease.
If we are to avoid a coming class war, the black bourgeoisie must decide to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem.
