The Black Empowerment Movement is going to require and economic revolution in the Black community. We missed the Industrial Revolution because we were in chains or getting lynched. What was the "Golden Age" for white folks in America (the period after WWII until about 1960) was almost non-existent for a people at the height of a decades-long civil rights battle. We missed the Internet Bubble because we were just sleeping. The Green Revolution is here and it's real. Massive wealth is going to be created over the next two decades for innovators and out-of-the box thinkers that work to solve the climate and energy crisis. We can't miss this one folks. Van Jones from greenforall.org is working on this, but it's going to take a massive effort to mobilize the community around this issue.
In an effort to do our part, here are some things you can do to get involved:
- Buy a shirt with our new design "Green is the New Black" to help promote the movement. A portion of the profit from each shirt goes to Green For All
- Educate yourself with info from these websites:
- Watch this video about billionaire Boone Pickens' plan to reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
- Join the We Can Solve It campaign
