From the NYC Amsterdam News:
Aside from institutional racism, our problems are rooted in political illiteracy and economic ignorance. The Montgomery Bus Boycott showed us that institutional racism is vulnerable to economic sanctions while being politically disenfranchised.
Until we learn how to vote and how to spend we will always suffer from sundry problems including male unemployment and lack of access to the airwaves and to cyberspace. This requires independent, visionary and uncompromising leadership that is short on rhetoric and long on results.
