I hear many folks say this and that about Jesse Jackson and the other leaders who are talking loud and saying nothing. The young leaders of today do not have the connections and prestige such as a Jesse Jackson. My theory is that (just like politicians) they rather be on the top and keep the younger generation cynical and mistrustful. They like their current positions and they still have influence in black community so why should they remove themselves? But if the younger generation came together their influence wouldn't be so strong. just a guess. hope you understand what i am trying to get across.
