For those who may not know, Dr. Claud Anderson is the author of PowerNomics: The National Plan to Empower Black America. Dr. Anderson has been fighting for reparation for black people for years and has spent over a quarter of a million dollars of his own money doing so. When he reached out for help from other wealthy black people like Oparh Winfrey they refused to help him because this issue was “too black.” He has dedicated his life to ensuring black people will excel economically and it has been a long hard battle.
Dr. Anderson is very close to obtaining billions in reparations for black people but is being blocked by the Obama administration. Yes, the Obama administration, the very administration you would think would be all for reparations blacks.
During a conversation with Dr. Boyce Watkins, Dr. Anderson shared with him that the Trump administration has at least sat down with him and listened to what he had to say while the Obama administration quickly dismissed him. Dr. Watkins said this is because the Democratic Party doesn’t want to do anything for black people because they feel like they already have our support. Why do anything to advance us if they don’t have to? Our settlement for reparations was blocked by the Obama administration, let that sink in. He’s not saying the Trump administration is a wonderful party but when the administration knows they don’t have your loyalty and support they are more open to listening.
Dr. Claud Anderson has spent his own money fighting for us, make sure you support him and yourself by purchasing PowerNomics and Black Labor, White Wealth, two amazing books he wrote that can change your family’s ability to passed and create wealth. You can donate to his business the Harvest Institute.
