Dr. Boyce on the Huffington Post: Sharpton, Jealous and Morial Plan to “Measure the Movement”

by Dr. Boyce Watkins, Syracuse UniversityHuffington Post

A year ago, we thought this date was never going to arrive. It’s the one year anniversary of last year’s"Measuring the Movement" forum, where Rev. Al Sharpton brought together a list of black public figures to produce constructive solutions for problems being faced by the African American community. The list of invitees was a virtual "who’s who" of black leadership that only Sharpton could put together: NAACP President Ben Jealous, Urban League President Marc Morial, radio show host Tom Joyner, CNN’s Roland Martin, Georgetown University Professor Michael Eric Dyson, Harvard Professor Charles Ogletree and even men like Judge Greg Mathis got together to talk about the direction of black America.

    If people like Dr. Watkins would stop the nonesense of thinking that Mr. Obama, our President, can resolve all of the Black communities problems and issues, we would be much better off.

    Why does black folks with this mindset feel this way?

    Mr. Obama is president to ALL of the people of America. He was not elected to give black folks their 40 acres and a mule!

    If you so called “public Black figures” will tell the truth and stop with all the crap, we would also be better off.

    What you need to be telling some black folks is to become educated!

    Also, Mr. Watkins, are you aware that whites and other races of people in America are suffering the same unemployment as black folks? You people make it appear like no other group of people are unemployed, or having tough financial times, except black people!

    Give us all a break with that crap!

    Stop feeding nonesense to the people and tell them the truth about what they should be doing, if you truly want to do something positive.
