|AFROMERICA - A Nation Under One God|
Entrepreneurship: Another Option|
Legislation is not the answer. Who is going to pass laws to better the employment situation of Black America, or fix - with political red-tape - the future of social security simply because we have legal and or political knowledge of the U.S. Constitution, academic degrees, and elitist connections to higher ups?
Why should we depend on these weak methods of bettering ourselves when the opportunity lies in individual exertion and persistence? Utilizing our talents and experiences is our best option in surviving today's economic challenges.
Educate yourself, train yourself, push yourself, and most of all believe in yourself. We can establish economic security by beginning businesses and marketing within our communities. It does not take a degree to open a service to the public as basic as changing motor oil, doing taxes, keeping records, or keeping and training kids.
Innovative efforts at beginning a home base or small business takes mere dedication on an individual level and a few courses and/or classes in that particular area of expertise. Waiting on the perfect job has become obsolete. Retiring from the government will not always be an option, and the factory industry has all but abandoned the American economic base.
Home-base businesses have skyrocketed in society and are contributing more to the national GDP than ever before. Black America must see this as an opportunity to develop itself and become self-sufficient from government need. The move to place Black politicians in office believing they can help better the Black situation is dying fast. Loose the American dream where it pertains to the college, good job, retirement cycle, and implement a new future by trusting yourself and your brothers and sisters.
