Why Settle For Second Class And Demonstrations When First-Class Empowerment Is Available

We totally support the right of the National Anthem protesters to peacefully protest as they choose and applaud their self-sacrificing attitude to put their careers on the line for what is a noble cause. Additionally, there is no denying the protest has the billionaire NFL owners giving newfound attention to the race and social justice issue in America even if only as a result of how the controversy may be impacting their bottom line.

Protests are not like socks. One size does not fit all. Reaching back to the Tommie Smith and John Carlos protest template, which was a one-time demonstration in a once every four years international event and does not apply to today’s reality. The symbolic protest during the Olympic ceremonies was to call world attention on an international stage to theThis image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is BFP-5.jpg racial discrimination and segregation problems in America at the time. That iconic demonstration was fifty years ago when the racial problem was national in scope, and the civil rights movement was at its height. Since then, those grievances have been substantially addressed. It’s verified by the success of the civil rights movement, integration, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and further evidenced by our subsequent spectacular economic and political advancement individually and collectively.

The irony is these protesting black professional ballplayers, many of whom are multimillionaires and are among the biggest group of economic beneficiaries of the success of the civil rights movement. They are also among the best examples of our spectacular economic progress as a race. News flash, the over-all battle has already been won. If you don’t know what you’re fighting for, you won’t know when you’re winning the fight. To paraphrase General Patton (as played by George C Scott), “We don’t need to pay for the same real estate twice.”

It’s time to advance ourselves to the next level. The next step is to establish our own  all-inclusive national news media operation. This is the last remaining institutional racial inequality, which is us being without national news media representation and the lack of news media accountability in race and police encounters. This can’t be done by the government.  It can only be achieved by us in the private sector. We certainly don’t need to continue relying on demonstrations for mainstream news media attention. The purpose of this website is to put the plan in action to launch our all-inclusive national news media operation.

We’re looking at people who are demonstrating and making ESPY group speeches for news media attention, who we need to introduce to this new level of awareness on our lack of news media accountability in race and police encounters, which is at the root of the unsolved race and social justice problem. This is where we are lacking and vulnerable. Having been subjected to years of thinking our only recourse to oppose injustice is to march and demonstrate for new media attention has left many thinking this is our default option. Instead of protesting for news media attention, logic and common sense dictates us having our own national news media operation able to impose accountability where it has never been and put those opposing forces in check.

So here’s where we are.  This two-stage solution has a high potential for success in its simplicity and  obvious solution, which we intend to achieve with our $500,000″GoFundMe” campaign to produce our television pilot which will show what an all-inclusive national news media operation looks like. It will air on television to millions of Americans and on YouTube and other streaming platforms. The story of fifty years as America’s best-kept news media’s racist secret will be fully exposed and explained in the pilot to justify the $200 million in investment capital required to launch this all-American, all-inclusive, national cable news television network.  Finally we have national news media representation and news media accountability in race and police encounters where its been missing, making us full participants in society.   Why settle for 2nd class when 1st class is available?  A change is coming.
