    The Three Evils of Society - Transcript Delivered at the National Conference on New Politics, August 31, 1967.   Mr. Chairman, friends and brothers in this first gathering of the National Conference on New Politics. Ladiesand gentlemen. . .can you hear me in the back? (No)
    I don’t know if the Klan is in here tonight or not with allthe troubles we’re having with these microphones. Seldom if ever. . . .has. . . .we’re still working with it.
    As I was about to say, seldom if ever has such a diverse and truly ecumenical gathering convened under the egis of politics in our nation, and I want to commend the leadership of the National Conference on NewPolitics for all of the great work that they have done in making this significant convention possible. Indeed byour very nature we affirm that something new is taking place on the American political horizon. We have comehere from the dusty plantations of the Deep South and the depressing ghettos of the North. We have come fromthe great universities and the flourishing suburbs. We have come from Appalachian poverty and from consciousstricken wealth. But we have come. And we have come here because we share a common concern for the moralhealth of our nation. We have come because our eyes have seen through the superficial glory and glitter of our society and observed the coming of judgment. Like the prophet of old, we have read the handwriting on the wall. We have seen our nation weighed in the balance of history and found wanting. We have come because wesee this as a dark hour in the affairs of men.For most of us this is a new mood. We are traditionally the idealists. We are the marchers fromMississippi and Selma and Washington, who staked our lives on the American Dream during the first half of this decade. Many assembled here campaigned lasciviously for Lyndon Johnson in 1964 because we could notstand ideally by and watch our nation contaminated by the 18th Century policies of Goldwaterism. We were thehardcore activists who were willing to believe that Southerners could be reconstructed in the constitutionalimage. We were the dreamers of a dream – that dark yesterdays of mans inhumanity to man would soon betransformed into bright tomorrows of justice. Now it is hard to escape, the disillusionment and betrayal. Our hopes have been blasted and our dreams have been shattered. The promise of a Great Society was shipwreckedoff the coast of Asia, on the dreadful peninsula of Vietnam. The poor, black and white, are still perishing on alonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. What happens to a dream deferred?It leads to bewildering frustration and corroding bitterness.I came to see this in a personal experience here in Chicago last summer. In all the speaking I have donein the United States before varied audiences, including some hostile whites, the only time I have ever been booed was one night in our regular weekly mass meetings by some angry young men of our movement. Now Iwent home that night with an ugly feeling. Selfishly I thought of my suffering and sacrifices over the last twelveyears. Why would they boo one so close to them? But as I lay awake thinking. I finally came to myself. And Icould not for the life of me have less impatience and understanding for those young men. For twelve years, I amothers like me, have held out radiant promises of progress. I had preached to them about my dream. I hadlectured to them about, the not to distant day when they would have freedom, all here, now. I had urged them tohave faith in America and in white society. Their hopes had soared. They were now booing me because they feltthat we were unable to deliver on our promises. They were booing because we had urged them to have faith in people who had too often proved to be unfaithful. They were now hostile because

    Roxanne Little, originally from Trinidad and Tobago, migrated to the United States at the age of 16. After graduating high school, she joined the United States Marine Corps and served with honor from 2001 – 2010.
    In 2014 she purchased her first real estate property. Four years later, she became an active investor and started expanding her portfolio. Roxanne currently owns three properties: two occupied with tenants, one fix and flip. She is a creative thinker, problem solver, decision maker...and she is an author.
    In 2017 Roxanne published her first children's' book under the pen name Hazel Walcott as a creative outlet for her spiritual struggles and a tool for her daughter who was struggling with reading. The book, titled "The Choice", helped her daughter to articulate her thoughts and words when she is speaking with her teachers and other children her age.
    In the real estate arena, Roxanne has built relationships with private lenders as well as investors for properties in Anne Arundel County, Prince George’s County, Montgomery County, Baltimore County and Northern Virginia on (duplexes, lease options, single family homes, rental properties, wholesale deals, and short-sales and fix and flip). Her goal is to leave a legacy for her children, as well as spending more time with them versus working hard for someone else.
    In today's episode, Roxanne shares the stories of how she invested in the tools resources and mentors she needed to be successful in real estate BEFORE becoming an active investor.  She also teaches us the critical formulas that you need to know before you decide to purchase your first real estate investment property.

BusinessOwnerFreedom ,

A must listen to resource!

Gerald has the smarts to listen and the wisdom to teach. What a great resource from a resourceful guy!

Echelonn ,

Discriminate

I don’t appreciate an objective resource like this being biased. Why this has to turn into race is not terrible. If you truly understand these concepts, then you should focus on that. You should base your products/services on great, quality content that serves the people. That will speak for itself. By putting your content on the back burner to relate a subjective concept to an objective content ruins credibility. Not using something that does not matter as a way to get people to listen is just shallow. I have listened to this podcast and I believe the content is great. I just felt as though I was being attacked just because I am white.

Awesome

What a great find!! Learning so much right now!
