Message to the Community
from PCOL Convener, Rahim Islam

When we begin to discuss the Black agenda, we always hear that the Black community is not monolithic and there is no one who can set our agenda. This is immature and this type of response usually comes from upper-income Blacks because many of them have bought into American assimilation hook line and sinker. Their response is a masked justification for not working together. When we have so many issues, many of which are interrelated and interconnected, and we have extremely limited resources, both financial and human, if we are not synchronized and organized at the highest level (leadership), we will continue as we have – with little to no progress at all.
