White America invites The 100 black men in America to ring the Stock Exchange Bell and The 100 black men in America views the invitation as a sign of recognition so much so that they proclaim:

?Our chapters have implemented successful financial literacy programs that educate and prepare families for homeownership,? added Dotson. ?Additionally, our signature Dollars & $ense program provides young mentees with a curriculum that focuses on financial management, investment strategies and more.?

FORGET ABOUT IT!
In Atlanta the whites are buying up houses blacks are losing and forcing blacks back on to the rural farm areas where they can find affordable housing which turned out to be run down properties whites bought and rehabbed before they entered the black areas to buy black forclosed homes.

Many blacks in Atlanta are being forced to work on farms for the first time in their lives.

In the year 2010 every avenue of black pride, culture and history is being replaced or eliminated by other races ad nationalities.

Black accomplishments in the 21st century is every color but black.

CASE AND POINT
Historical Black colleges have lost out to white homecoming queens.

Japanese girls and boys have moved into the black gospel choir arena and are performing and emulating gospel performances with mathematical precision

White rapper Emiem is declared the top black rap artist.

The latest a*sault upon black heritage, tradition and culture came at the hands of a all white female sorority team Zeta Tau Alpha when the took on historically Black Fraternities, at the Sprite Step Off,

Zeta Tau Alpha won the $100,000 prize by out stepping the historical and legendary AKAs, Deltas and Alphas combined.


The 100 black men must stop the grandstanding and find the courage not to be afraid of their own lives.

In their home base of Atlanta GA. young black males are being locked down young with impunity, Black are being mind fornicated back into a slavery mindset by having to celebrate the confederate flag.

What few free black men are left have turned homo-sexual and/or shaved their heads bald. The black man goes along to get along.

Black men are literally selling out the black domestic haircare industry by shaving their heads bald.

Their baldheads negate the invention or need for production of black haircare products thereby hurting our own black domestic hair care industry.

Since the Million Man March the strong, vialant and courageous black man has gone the way of the buffalo.

The black woman is the one holding and advancing the African American front-line and not the 100 Black Men of America.
The black woman is the one that deserves recognition.

In Northern states police departments roam the city streets like slave catchers looking for and locking up young black males and subjecting them to high or no bonds.

The Cook County Jail in Chicago are selling their young black male prisoners to outside collar counties in the south. They justify selling black males into southern collar county slavery by labeling black males gang members and troublemakers.

There is no help summoned nor any help coming for the African American male because the 21st century wants them gone.

The book Undercover Smart is to only escape route for the African American male or female.

Undercover Smart is not a book African Americans should read, it is a book they better read.

Mubarak Inter-prizes is the only free standing black owned company standing and the day is coming whereas Mubarak Inter-prizes will be all we have to rally behind.

Brother Mubarak,
I really appreciate your commentary. What you chronical is the growing list of "gap analysis" that points to the problems so many Blacks have. What the 100 Black Men are doing is commendable in the face of overwhelming odds. They are NOT the problem.

I don't know what you mean by "The 100 black men must stop the grandstanding and find the courage not to be afraid of their own lives." I have seen Black professionals who are giving up their time to reach out to young Black males. It isn't grandstanding. It is trying to make a difference.

We should commend all positive steps that attempt to lift even one of our young men out of the revolving door criminal justice system. Yes, financial literacy is needed to avoid so many ripoffs that the under-educated members of our communities fall for. None of the solution providers -- 100 Black Men, NAACP, Urban League, Black Star Project, D'zert Club, etc. -- are the problem. There are many solutions. The problem is that we throw rocks at the Blacks who are trying to help us.

There is no silver bullet that will stop Police brutality. But dropping out of school in the Information Age is not a solution. There is no magic program that will save us from Pay Day Lenders. But financial literacy will help us to see the ripoffs coming. There is no Jobs Program that will suddenly employ the under-educated, underskilled, victims of the criminal "just-us system." But we must encourage our young men to seek 21st century skills if they hope to take care of their families. There is no "welfare program" that will prepare pre-school Black children to learn if their baby mommas and baby daddies insist on irresponsible reproduction.

While "Undercover Smart" may be one solution to our challenges, it certainly is not the only solution. And even if you don't embrace all approaches to our problems, that doesn't make them bad solutions. It would be good if the generations that we sent off to college would honor the sacrifices of their ancestors and build stronger Black communities. Some of them are; some are not. That is no reason to throw out those who are trying with those who are hurting us.

We need to criticize drug dealers, dropouts, deadbeat dads, or other irresponsible behavior. We need to get over the "victims mentality" and encourage those who are making an effort. We need to "aggregate" our solutions. There is no one-size-fits-all solution. What I am trying to say is, "Give some street cred to others out there doing their best."

WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE FOLLOWING 100 BLACK MEN OF AMERICA EVOLUTIONARY TIMELINE?

History Of 100 Black Men Of America, Inc.
NEW YORK 1963

The overall concept of the 100 began in New York in 1963 began when a group of concerned African American men began to meet to explore ways of improving conditions in their community. The 100 black men seeks to serve, The overall concept, strive to improve engaged in extensive discussions

NEW YORK 1963
CONCEPT
EXPLORE
EXTENSIVE DISCUSSION

The words above accurately describes the absence of practical application and indirect action on the part of the 100 black men.

The same words below are used 47 years later by President/CEO Roger Madison, Izania .com in his defense of The 100 Black men Of America,INC

Compare the similairity in the words above with the words used by President/CEO Roger Madison, Izania .com in order to
put in perspective the progress and evolution of The 100 Black men Of America, INC in real-time

MARCH 11, 2010
What the 100 Black Men are doing is commendable in the face of overwhelming odds....

It is trying to make a difference...

We should commend all positive steps that attempt...

But financial literacy will help us to see the ripoffs coming....

we must encourage our young men to seek 21st century skills...
President/CEO Roger Madison, Izania .com.

Let's examine the words President/CEO Roger Madison, Izania .com used 47 YEARS LATER
commendable
trying
should
attempt
will help
encourage

After 47 years of 100 Black men of America the strongest words to describe their progress and evolution are:
commendable, trying, should, attempt, will help and encourage

After 47 years of 100 Black men of America, black Americans as of this writing have no infrastructure, technology or industry.

If the 100 Black men Of America,INC wanted to "improve conditions on the ground they would have gathered together their collective intelligence in 1963 and we would have infrastructure, technology or industry by now to aggregate the 21st century with.

When they did combine their collective intelligence they decided to locate their headquarters in the most segregated state in the south.

No place has as many slave plantations still visible than in the state of Georgia.

Afraid for their own lives the 100 black men of America spent their young, vibrant lives, days and efforts trying not to offend the sensibilities of southern whites when it cames to upsetting the good law abiding Negroes with all of their uppity talk.

After 47 years of looking the other way and dancing to the tune of Jim Crow The 100 Black men of America are now putting the social and economic condition of black America onto the shoulders of the young, the poor, the uneducated, the elderly and the disabled.

Now that they have gotten old they want to lay the burden of our condition on people that were not even born 47 years ago.

The young people they are placing emphasis on were born into the living conditions and environments they now find themselves being held responsible for.

The problem is that we throw rocks at the Blacks who are trying to help us.
President/CEO Roger Madison, Izania .com

The problem is not throwing rocks, the problem is 47 years of: CONCEPTS, EXPLORATIONS AND EXTENSIVE DISCUSSIONS.

The problem is words like commendable, trying, should, attempt, will help and encourage.

It is to late for CONCEPTS, EXPLORATIONS AND EXTENSIVE DISCUSSION. It is too late because the enemy is at the gate.

While "Undercover Smart" may be one solution to our challenges, it certainly is not the only solution
President/CEO Roger Madison, Izania .com

Dear Black America 2010
The wagon has come for us all and not just for the drug dealers, dropouts, deadbeat dads, or others with irresponsible behavior.

We all must seek shelter and Undercover Smart is the only way out.

Undercover Smart is the one and only solution. Read Undercover Smart or perish.

I have learned my lesson:
"Never argue with an irrational person. They will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience."

You can't attack the argument, You cant undermine the binding principles of Undercover Smart so you resort to attacking the messenger.

We went from 100 black men to me be refered to as: an irrational person. The quote is not even original. I think you improvised by using the word: irrational person.

My argument was not personal. It is historical,logical, rational,solid and evidenced in perpetual real-time.

None-the-less your reply in submission is a dissapointment coming from someone that represent your persona, intelligence and title.

The real lesson you should master is how to be humble in victory and gracious in defeat.
