Sisyphus and the Black United Front

Black United Front is what's needed. It has to have agenda -- as in "What We Want"--and rules. The goals need to address the needs of the Black people who are worse off and the plan of action has to define ways to reach them. All blatant ideological or religious stuff needs to be eliminated from the agenda, so as to facilitate the unity of people with different politico/mythico/religious mindsets.
We need: national single payer health care, public jobs where corporations have folded, high funding of schools with high teacher-to-student ratios, cheap first-rate public transportation systems, neighborhood police, removal of barriers to union organizing, city block and ward grassroots-up political groups with elected representatives who report the analyses and demands of the people, etc.
