Kathy Barnette: Police misconduct isn’t biggest problem facing black Americans – here’s what is

Contrary to what many claim, the main problem facing black Americans is not police misconduct. Our main problem is that we don’t have a seat at the table when it comes to revitalizing our communities.

We watch as primarily white liberals come into predominately black communities and tell us what our problems are and how to fix them. And now they have decided that our chief problem is policing that discriminates against us.

Those living in predominately black communities do not need to be told their issues. They are living them every day. What we need is to be empowered to resolve them – and that starts with giving the black community access to influence the world in which we live.

Maximum community participation is the only thing that will change the landscape of a community. That change must come from within, not from an outside source.

I am a black woman, married to a black man, and raising black children. I have a personal stake in how all of this mayhem we’ve experienced over the past several weeks pans out. I have a personal stake in making sure we, as a community, do not settle for just marches in the street and pretty little speeches.

We must capture this moment – and the heart of this nation – to bring about real change that brings even greater inclusion in sharing in the nation’s prosperity. But if we aren’t careful, all we will be left with will be peaceful marches, pretty little speeches, looted buildings, broken glass, destroyed lives, rapidly rising crime rates, and no real influence to create sustainable change.

Keep your empty gestures of toppling Confederate statues and renaming buildings to yourself. I want a seat at the table when the black community is being discussed.

White leftists/wokes/socialist are the true racists. They are the ones wanting to rename buildings and tear down statues. They only care for themselves.

Start with the school systems and get more parents involved. Many if not all of the problems could be fixed by fixing the schools. That does not always mean more money thrown at the problem.

Welfare reform is needed.Too many aid programs cut money and assistance to married couples that earn any income. That leads to broken homes and generational welfare. I think that is one of the goals of the Democrats.

Keep blacks poor, ignorant and relying on handouts.
