Why hasn't the political empowerment of black people resulted in economic empowerment? Answered by Kyle Phoenix




Things have changed but if you gathered fifty million people and they all stood side by side, lets say throughout NY, and you stood on a hill. How many of them could you spot peeing?
Literally thousands in front of you would have to hold it for a few minutes and millions more could pee away.
We are making progress and no you won't see it. TV has warped how we perceive in that we expect to see everything. If we can't see it and check it out again on YouTube, did it really occur?
Two if a brown person stands in a political position how are to measure their effect on the lives of millions in only eight years?
Gus Fring died on Breaking Bad, he's back on Better Call Sauk, all within eight years. Rewind eight years, besides newer phones and tech, some births and deaths, a disaster or two, outside of wars, what has significantly changed?
My point is not enough time has passed to measure the effect on 50 million odd people based on one political context.
15% of Americans are in permanent poverty. About 40-60 million folk are born poor, thru multiple choices and non-choices will die poor. Yet over 80% of them, including children have cell phones.
Conversely 40% of Black folk are in generational poverty---about 20 million.
30% are in Situational or Transitional Poverty as students, juggling family and jobs, multiple jobs but they will eventually get to the context of middle class. MC is about $34k a year or more as an individual or family of 4.
Another 30% are Middle Class and higher, earning up to over 1$ million a year and as low as $34k, they, at least 50% will continue to prosper, earning 4-10% more a year for their working lives.
There's a micro tenth of 1% earning millions a year, investors, business folk, business owners, celebrities, often appearing in both celebrated and mundane ways in Black Enterprise and Upscale magazine.
So who are you fixing your eye upon? The 40 not moving at all but surviving, the 30 who are shifting turmoil, the 30 who are plodding along or that micro percent in the stratosphere-----coincidentally including the Obama's who have received 65 million A PIECE for their autobiographies?
At stake are the 40% in poverty, controlling and reducing that number, the rest, will be fine. The problem is not just programs and jobs and education for them but their current ability to access them. Lets say Obama creates 1 million jobs on Tuesday and our 40% get a text to come on down to the community center to apply.
Let's say 2 million decide to apply.
The 1 million jobs have some criteria.
A high school degree.
70-80% of people in poverty have not completed and possess a continuous grasp of the fundamentals of a hs degree. By that we mean did it and still retain the capacity to apply a rigorous thinking style. Algebra, scientific inquiry, computer systems understanding, critical thinking skills.
2 million now becomes 400,000.
Poor people are criminalized more, more likely to be involved in crime, have served time----so if you ask for a candidate who has a perfect background, it ain't gonna happen.
Lets knock it down to 200,000 now.
We haven't even addressed childcare, health care and support services as poverty literally taxes and impedes your overall life with more children and health issues/needs.
Non-criminal records.support system to mentor people out of poverty to learn all the skills and expectations of holding this great job? We assume poverty is not its own culture and therefore assume that middle class, literally called something besides poverty, is not different from and demanding in ways that takes learning and mediation.
Our 200,000 has just become maybe, optimistically, 50,000 candidates out of a pool of 2 million.
Our 50k are spit shined and ready, smart enough, resilient and equipped but lo and behold what's that coming over the horizon applying for those jobs?
10% of our other 60%.
6 million more educated and higher qualified Black folk.
If only 2.5% of them squeak thru to being worthy candidates that's 150, 000 ahead of our Poor Pack, the ones who might need it the most and with whom we would see the most immediate uplifting. Our 150k candidates upon hiring might progressively increase their outward advancement but it won't be as immediately apparent because you're adding one more ounce to a half gallon jug vs one more ounce to an eight ounce glass.
But wait, what's that on the horizon.....?
More people.
Who dat?
Every other eligible American of all stripes, sizes, cultures and ethnicities, including some Native Americans and they've all got their resumes.
1 million jobs trickled down are caught by those most equipped to catch them not by need.
So you won't see a tidal shift because the dry areas don’t get water due to where and what the tidal infusion starts and for whom.
The reforms that have been suggested by Black folk are programs, mass programs, like the Great Reform aimed at poor people, taking into account all their issues. Such a targeted action would hit the 60 million poor, 20 million of them Black and then you'd "see" a wave of change.
No one or even dozen Black politicians are going to come along in eight years and dramatically shift 50 million folk outside of a Holocaust. Creating parity and opportunity will take decades, faster yes than the hundreds of years of impediments but we're less than 50 years out of segregation, only 4 out of school districts desegregating, were also in a new age, not Technology that our parents entered but now Information when we were just getting parity in Industrial. Were still spread over multiple "timelines" if you will.
All the Industrial skilled must graduated and accelerate thru Technological to get to Informational. I've worked alongside Black and White coworkers who can't use the office computer beyond one or two basic functions, in their fifties. How Obama gonna lift them? Several male coworkers couldn't change the label spool on a desktop printer for door passes as security, how you gonna shift them? Others don't read regularly besides the watered down paper, no books, no magazines, how you gonna hand that person a technical manual to build roads and bridges .
As a teacher, having taught thousands of minorities if you want to see a room scatter, throw in a math book. Math is literally the Kryptonite of a percentage of Black, Latino and other folk. If I can't do math then coding, computer programming is out the window. Basic jobs like WalMart are done on CBLs, computer based learning, a fantastic system but if I can't operate a PC or am familiar with software usage two things occur, I get the basic stock job at$10-$15 an hour for life; I am ineligible to promote because I can't learn the next cbl curriculums on the PC because even training now demands a pre-sophistication.
I teach a course called National Work Readiness to teach some of those post high school, pre-college skills to adults of all ages because the jobs exist 200,0000 to 700,000 $34k and higher paying jobs exist every month in America but we as a subculture lack the requisite skill base to grasp them.

What are the top 3 things gay men want other people to know? Answered by Kyle Phoenix

Kyle Phoenix
Kyle Phoenix, Author of Multiple orgasm training Men, in its 3rd edition.

Should people be accepted for having feelings that make them want to have sex with young children? Why are the pedophiles using the same methods the LGBT used to be accepted, to be accepted for their pedophile feelings? Are you a pedophobe?
