    thank you for this opportunity, before i get stared i would like to say i am not coming at anyone individual on this subject, but we as black people have more power to make a change in this world (as a hold) i stress as a hold because most black successful entertainer from sports , actors, music intertainer, preachers doctors , lawyers and any black person that’s in great financail power to really make a difference in not only their communittee’s most of them donate a large amount of their funds to colleges and individual community centers that adds up to billions of dollars as a hold, but most of them are looking for reconition from their pears as well as a tax right off. My opinion if some one came up with a orginization that would be able to open up communittee center like the boys and girl club or ymca that we can be able to place all over and if you really want to hell the President with giving people jobs they can open up not private put privately organized schools with but the only way this could and would be able to happen is if we as what we call each other black fokes would come together as a hold like every other nationality and make some changes. Mr.Cosby and Oprah donates over 100 million dollars to colleges for scholarships and the collages they donate to each year do not put half of our children through their school just imagine how many kids can be put through collage if we done it ourselve… GOD BLESS YOU and i hope you understand what i’m trying to say. but most of all I hold that someday me can see this change happen UNITY IS THE KEY!
