Jesse Jackson, Sr. has set his eyes on addressing economic inequality for black Americans. He joined Roland Martin and NewsOne New Tuesday to discuss the Rainbow PUSH Coalition’s upcoming 17th annual Wall Street Project, a summit to address the declining state of the economy for blacks and develop solutions. From the Rainbow PUSH Coalition:

The Rainbow PUSH Coalition and Citizenship Education Fund will host the 17th Annual Wall Street Project Economic Summit, February 11 – February 13, 2014 at The Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel, 811 Seventh Avenue at 52nd Street, New York, NY, 10019. This year’s summit, “50 Years After the Civil Rights Act: The Unfinished Agenda for Economic Justice” will focus on the decline in black businesses, home foreclosures and unemployment.

The Wall Street Economic Summit brings together the nation’s leaders in political, corporate, entrepreneurial and other industries to WALL STREET – all to discuss the economic congruity and concerns distinctive to men and women of African-American, Hispanic and diverse cultures. The U.S. Agriculture secretary and agriculture secretaries from several African countries will discuss investment opportunities and hunger in Africa.

Registration for the event is open and available at

    There is no such thing as “economic equality” so how can he fix inequality? Niggas need to get off their asses…get educated, work and be productive maybe then we can prosper economically. Stop buying big-ass watches, Cadillacs and $200 sneakers AND STOP BLAMING OTHER FOLKS for YOUR problems!!! As you can all attest to, there is a black president in the highest office in the land and the black condition STILL has not improved. It is up to each individual to pull himself up– NOT THE GOVERNMENT or the economic system.

  2. Start working from home! Great job for students, stay-at-home moms or anyone needing an extra income… You only need a computer and a reliable internet connection… Make $90 hourly and up to $12000 a month by following link at the bottom and signing up… You can have your first check by the end of this week…….

    What all of those “leftist liberal progressive FOOLS” need to be focused on is “Educational Inequality”.

    Without the “RIGHT” education, Blacks and Hispanics will always lag behind.

    Look at the American-Asian students in this nation. “They” are NOT lagging behind in “Education” and as a result, they are NOT lagging behind in economic “INEQUALITY”.

    But some FOOLS just refuse to see the truth, because it does NOT fit their political (poverty-pimping) agenda !!!
