The African American community in America needs to understand that they need to become organized. They need to seek out and find a group of leaders that are willing to fight for the issues that directly impact the African American community. These leaders need to do more than say things ranging from I hate White people to just work really hard and it will all be ok.

I am a firm believer in the need for accountability. Recently, I have been reading a lot of things said about our president regarding Troy Davis, the African-American male who was executed last week despite clear evidence that the procedures of his trial were miss handled and witnesses recanted their testimony. There was considerable outrage toward our president for his choice to not step in on this matter. Dr. Boyce Watkins published a blog in the Newsone section of Blackplanet.com, arguing that Black America has become a mistress for the president. I write this article in contrast to her thesis.
