How African-Americans Can Change The Circumstances Of Our Zero Net Worth Dilemma


By Pierre Clark The talk in Chicago about increasing economic opportunity for African-Americans in Chicago and around the country rings hollow in the face of a report from the Chicago Community Trust that Black families in Chicago have a median net worth of $0 dollars while white families in contrast have a median net worth of $210,000


A report from McKinsey and Company and reports from the Pew Foundation indicate that it might take hundreds of years - 228 years, according to one report - to address and fix the disparities. Most of us living now will have been dead and gone for 9-10 generations by that point in time. 


What can be done now and in the immediate future about addressing and reversing these depressing findings? And as reports also say the GNP of African American community is over $1 trillion, how can the net worth of those same families in Chicago be $0? And how can we start capturing and recapturing that wealth?

The Historic Allen AME Church
Announces New Progressive Pastor
To Succeed The Flake Legacy

By Kamau Austin, Co-publisher, The Southeast Queens Scoop

After a high energy service three (3) weeks ago culminating the Flake Legacy worship service, as a memorial for stewardship of Doctors Floyd and Elaine Flake, Allen A.M.E. Cathedral, recently announced their highly anticipated appointment for their new Pastor: Rev. Stephen A. Green.  Allen A.M.E. has been a pillar of community progress for many decades under the former Pastors Floyd and Elaine Flake's leadership.

Aleeia Abraham
, highly respected leader of the 36,000+ Black Resource Network sent positive vibes to the new Pastor and his wife Ms. Lady Braea Green, "Congratulations to Rev. Stephen A. Green and his wife, Lady Braea Green on their new appointment as Pastor at The Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral of New York."  Her comments reflected the comments of many other members of her organization and residents of Southeast Queens last week.

Rev. Green is known to have quite an extensive background championing community causes and social justice.  Pastor Green seems to have had a passion for social justice from his family and early involvements in activism.

According to Faith For Black Lives "
Rev. Green’s passion to help others and fight the good fight started early. He grew up helping at his father’s church.

He began organizing against police brutality and gun violence while in high school in Little Rock, Arkansas. While studying at Morehouse College, the alma mater of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., he learned of the deaths of Troy Davis and Trayvon Martin and became a student organizer."

"KEITH LILLY, NEEDS YOUR HELP."

THE FORMER HARLEM, DISTRICT LEADER, 68TH ASSEMBLY DISTRICT, LOST HIS LEG, HIS JOB AND HIS  MEDICAL INSURANCE DUE TO DIABETES


Excerpted from BY NAYABA ARINDEOTP Editor-at-Large Our Times Press, Curated by Roz Shepard. To Support Keith Lilly Click Here

Keith Lilly, the popular former Harlem District Leader, 68th Assembly District, told Our Time Press that last July his lower left leg was amputated after 10 years of living with diabetes.

It all started, he said, with a small hole in his foot, which he did not feel because of his neuropathy. “I didn’t know where the hole came from, but I didn’t think anything of it. I cleaned it out, put a band-aid on, and a few days passed, and the hole started to get larger.”

A week later, he went to the hospital as the wound was not healing, “and my toes were swollen. So I went, they gave me antibiotics, and sent me home. But the hole got larger. But I had no symptoms of a fever, so I didn’t know I had an infection.

There was no numbness, no pain, just swelling and the hole getting larger.”
But then Mr. Lilly said he began losing balance. “I was finding it difficult to walk. I went back and that’s when they kept me and told me that I had an infection. I was in Mount Sinai. They cut a couple of toes off, to [stop] the infection from creeping up. Their claim was, ‘We think we are going to have to cut further because we don’t want the infection to get further up the leg.”

Then Mr. Lilly said medics returned and said that they would have to take his left foot.
