Re: “How integration led to the decline of black-owned businesses

Though lack of education seems to be a key issue (and I won't volunteer to say that it's not), the question most African Americans should be asking is "what kind of education?" Though we have doctors, lawyers, politicians, scientists, and the like who have achieved what we perceive as educational and financial success, it turns out that they are only trained to give all the benefit of their so-called education back to our oppressors. This is not to say that we should not receive these types of training, but we are in a most dire need of educating ourselves to do for self...not as individuals, but as a community of people who share the same cultures, needs, hurts, etc. Integration has caused the majority of our people to forget who they are, and where they came from. I know plenty of black Phd's who either can't find a job, are underemployed, and (in more cases than not) are unemployed, and have been so for some time now. We need to stop thinking in terms of jobs. In fact, our educators should be placing more emphasis on ownership (owning our own jobs). We should be able to create jobs for our own people instead of looking for jobs, and going out and begging white people for work. They don't have the ability to satisfy the needs of their own people in looking at the present economic situation of this country. We need to take our future into our own hands and stop depending upon white America, and the government to do that for us that we should be doing for ourselves. We need to go back to establishing our own economics in our own communities, just like it was in the pre-integration period.
