African Americans need to create more businesses instead of looking to the job market!
The African American communities need to promote themselves as partners and investors and not as merely consumers and workers. African American leadership is at an impasse, and so is the rest of America, to produce economic development models that benefit the inner cities people and poor black enclaves who live there.
Income, the money we earn, determines the quality of our day-to-day lives. However, wealth is the resources we save and accumulate from the income we earn. It is this wealth that determines the quality of the life we live in the long term by providing both access to further opportunities and a cushion against hard times.
Black Buying Power
The African American Entrepreneur reports that: "On the eve of the Civil War, the collective wealth of free blacks was approximately $50 million. In 2006, African Americans earned a whopping $744 billion, a figure that exceeds the gross domestic product of all but 15 nations of the 192 independent countries in the world."

There is a major shift in opinion between the two groups taking place as of 2010 with a continuation of the rapid growth of African-American wealth playing a part in African development.
Resourceful and wealthy African-Americans will continue to invest in African culture and politics, both on the continent and abroad, while Africans borrow from African-American history for lessons on developing an international identity. Particularly, a growing number of African-American entertainers and business people will see Africa as an extension of their life in the United States. some will even maintain plans to buy and move to the continent seeking a more personally and financially fruitful life.
Africans will also begin to formally recognize this trend and capitalize on the brain gain. As more African-Americans look to Africa, African will become more high profile in African-American press.
