I laugh at the new people in Dallas who think they have all of the answers to the problem in the black community. They make themselves look like foolish individuals . No one person can solve all of the problems that are present in the black community. If that were the case, then why haven't some of the smarter and more involved people been able to make the great changes that the "Newbies" are talking about?
One big mistake of "Newbies" is to talk about what others have not done. How would you know? If you have not been involved in the community for a long period of time, you have no frame of reference as to who did what. There are many people working on a daily basis that none of us know what good work they are doing for the community and we just can not say because we do not know what they have done.
Getting appointed to a committee does not mean that you are the best person for the job, it could mean that you have sucked up so much that you have earned the spot. Does that mean the community will benefit? Maybe or Maybe not. If you have the smarts to learn the position they can, if not they won't.
When "Newbies" get more experience under their belt then they should speak out. Sometimes it is good to just shut up and learn.
