"We must continue to be over achievers working to be more competent, more savvy, more astute, more creative, and more innovative in order to enter the playing field."
-Yolanda Lewis, CEO
Blacks in America continue to suffer living in a society where they have been enslaved longer than free and forced to compete in a system that has continually institutionalized systematically and deliberate oppression to promote inferiority for generations.
History clearly expresses the victimization of Black Americans that continue to impede progress for Blacks in America. The United States Congress issued a non- binding resolution to offer an apology for slavery, however corresponding actions to thwart the impacts to a group of people enslaved longer than free have yet to be realized or discussed.
It is difficult for many to imagine that in 2013, 150 years after emancipation of Black slaves, America has pushed every issue ahead of the responsibility to that continue to plague Black communities. Our goal is to develop programs that are not race, gender or ethnic based, but based on history.
We serve to promote equity for the historic enslavement and segregation of Black-Americans, the only immigrants in America, to come not in search of a better life. Our mission is to revitalize the communities of people who were victims and made property for life. Whose next generations continue to be the victims of dehumanizing atrocities mixed in a society that sanctioned slavery and Jim Crow segregation and continual disenfranchisement.
The July 29, 2008 apology by the US Congress House Resolution 194 addresses the facts that continue to oppress Black America.
Whereas after emancipation from 246 years of slavery, African-Americans soon saw the fleeting political, social, and economic gains they made during Reconstruction eviscerated by virulent racism, lynchings, disenfranchisement, Black Codes, and racial segregation laws that imposed a rigid system of officially sanctioned racial segregation in virtually all areas of life;
There should NOT be a group of minorities that Blacks are included in for purposes of creating a more level playing field, Blacks should be put into a new category based on our history. Blacks are the only people who were dehumanized, classified as property for life, specifically targeted in policies and laws. It is an insult and blatant disregard for the truth to "lump" Blacks into a category of minorities with other non-Whites because our history is NOT the same.

According to Dr. Claud Anderson, "racism exists only when one group holds a disproportionate share of wealth and power over another group then uses those resources to marginalize, exploit, exclude and subordinate the weaker group."
Black people do not hold "a disproportionate share of wealth and power over another group." Nor do Black people[in America] posess the ability to "marginalize, exploit, exclude and subordinate" another group.
Therefore a Black person can not be racist.
History of Blacks in America
The history of Black America is taught as beginning with a bill of sale. Transported to America as property sold on the open market we have no means of identifying our roots or our true history. The truth is that Blacks were here before the arrival of the Europeans and represent the true Native Americans. Click Here for Details
Black American's are the victims of US sanctioned enslavement and the impacts of hundreds of years of enslavement compounded by one hundred years of Black Codes, Jim Crow segregation, and the last fifty years of institutionalized racism have left our people tired and weary. It is time to take a stand to achieve equal equity for victims of US sanctioned enslavement.
