"Niagra Movement" for Black Women Being Born

Read why what is now going on is not the usual howling at the moon about all that is wrong in the world. There is something different going on in a post-Imus world.

I don't know all the details at this point, but when I do, you know y'all will be the first to know. If Don Imus was the Arch Duke Ferdinand of a battle between Black folks with common sense and those without, then the RADIO SILENCE on the Dunbar Village gang rape is the Pearl Harbor that is going to draw Black women from the sidelines.

If the "self appointed" leaders refuse to speak out or take steps to protect the Black community, ALL of THEM, then we must take steps to defend ourselves. If the organizations that hold themselves out as being focussed on the needs of the Black community are throwing conventions and banquets and awards ceremonies while ROME BURNS, then they need to shutter their doors and turn in their charters. If they are too archaic and incompetent to meet 21st century problems with 21st century methods, then WE WILL DO what THEY CANNOT or WILL NOT DO!

Don't worry moi will not be "leading " anything. I am a general, not a diplomat. Other folks are going to take the lead. That is the way it should be. We all have our roles to play. No single one of us can do everything.

Let the League of Industrious Black Women ( and those who love and care about us) be born! Don't worry y'all that is not the name of the group. Also, I know that Arch Duke Ferdinand and Pearl Harbor were from two different wars. Here at WAOD, we love to mix the metaphors.
