"As I have often said, "when mainstream America has a headache, Black folks have pneumonia, but we are all sick." If we solve jobs and the economy for black America, then many other items of deep concern to our community, from crime to incarceration rates, to yes healthcare, to a range of social issues, will either get resolved or be addressed in ways they otherwise would not. If we don't solve jobs and the economy, well then basically what we are all doing is simply "re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic."

John Hope Bryant from the Huffington Post piece entitled "What Black People Need Now"
