The myth of black buying power - that black people collectively hold trillions of dollars in wealth and that they could improve their economic status if only they 'spent their money more wisely' - has been used for more than a century to take the focus off the systemic racism and uphold capitalism. Dr. Jared Ball, author of "The Myth and Propaganda of Black Buying Power," explains what is behind this myth and why it is still actively embraced today despite evidence to the contrary. He talks about what power is and what we must do to build it. For more information, visit PopularResistance.org.

In this episode of By Any Means Necessary hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman are joined by Nicole Roussell, Sputnik News Analyst and producer of Loud & Clear with Brian Becker, to talk about the Congressional hearing on the police assault on protesters in Lafayette Park ahead of President Trump's bizarre "photo-op" and how the ongoing wave of state-backed assaults on journalists demonstrate the practical limits of "press freedom" in the US.In the second segment, and Jacquie are joined by Mahnker Dahnweih, Community Power Building Coordinator with Freedom, Inc. in Madison, Wisconsin, to talk about the unanimous decision by the Madison School Board to sever ties with the police, the long struggle by Freedom, Inc. to remove cops from the classroom, and where their victory fits into the ongoing nationwide fight to defund and demilitarize the police.In the third segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Leo Flores, Latin American Campaign Coordinator for CODEPINK, to talk about the news that Venezuela has given the EU Ambassador 72 hours to leave the country, how the EU may respond, and the draconian sanctions imposed by the EU which led to the dramatic diplomatic standoff.

Ball, discusses affirmative action, Biden, and why he thinks black buying power doesn’t exist. Other topics include Kentucky, Oakland’s first black NFL team, and billionaire Robert F.

On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by KJ Noh, a peace activist and scholar on the geopolitics of Asia, and a frequent contributor to Counterpunch and Dissident Voice.China two weeks ago announced that it had a Covid-19 hotspot in an outdoor market in Beijing. The government quarantined the area and snuffed out the virus. South Korea dealt with the coronavirus as soon as it hit and was able to control infections. Australia barely had any coronavirus infections after it went into lockdown. And Greece had a lower Covid-19 infection rate than any other country in the European Union. Why are other countries so good at addressing this pandemic and the US is so bad? President Trump’s much-touted kickoff campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Saturday ended up having not the hundreds of thousands of people the campaign expected, but a grand total of 6,611. It turned out that the campaign was trolled by children and teenagers, who reserved nearly a million tickets and then didn’t show up. The President is reportedly furious. He blamed “radical leftists,” demonstrators, and the “fake media” for the debacle. But on a serious note, this colossal failure has to call into question the current state of the campaign, just four-and-a-half months before the election. Ted Rall, an award-winning editorial cartoonist and columnist, whose work is at www.rall.com, joins the show with John Kiriakou. For generations African-Americans have been told they have what is now said to be more than one trillion dollars of "buying power." But a new book argues that commentators have misused this claim largely to blame Black communities for their own poverty based on squandered economic opportunity. “The Myth and Propaganda of Black Buying Power” exposes the claim as both a marketing strategy and myth, while also showing how that myth functions simultaneously as a case study for propaganda and commercial media coverage of economics. Brian speaks with Dr. Jared Ball, a professor of communication studies at Morgan State University, the editor of “A Lie of Reinvention: Correcting Manning Marable’s Malcolm X” and the new book “The Myth and Propaganda of Black Buying Power,” and his writings are at www.IMixWhatILike.org. Monday’s segment “Education for Liberation with Bill Ayers” is where Bill helps us look at the state of education across the country. What’s happening in our schools, colleges, and universities, and what impact does it have on the world around us? Bill Ayers, an activist, educator and the author of the book “Demand the Impossible: A Radical Manifesto,” joins Brian and John.In this segment, The Week Ahead, the hosts take a look at the most newsworthy stories of the coming week and what it means for the country and the world, including . Sputnik News analysts and producers of this show Nicole Roussell and Walter Smolarek join the show.Monday’s regular segment Technology Rules is a weekly guide on how monopoly corporations and the national surveillance state are threatening cherished freedoms, civil rights and civil liberties.

In this episode of By Any Means Necessary hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman are joined by Kerbie Joseph, Program Coordinator of the Audre Lorde project and a member of the Party for Socialism and Liberation, to talk about New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's promise to cut funding for the New York Police Department, why concessions being offered represent an attempt at "appeasement" by the ruling class, and the ways the coronavirus crisis continue to expose the massive holes in the social 'safety net.' In the second segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Ollie Vargas, writer and journalist with Radio Kawsachun Coca, to talk about the new report by the New York Times acknowledging the unreliability of the OAS report claiming Evo Morales' victory last year involved electoral fraud, why the mainstream media only seems to admit having peddled such disinformation once the effects of its proliferation can no longer be undone, and whether the coup-borne regime of Jeanine Añez can be trusted to carry out the elections just announced in September.In the third segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Dr. Jack Rasmus, economist, radio show host, & author of "The Scourge of Neoliberalism," to talk about why the recent unemployment numbers are so misleading, why the killing of George Floyd was just the "tip of the iceberg" in terms of the social issues motivating continued protests, and what to make of the Trump administration's promise of another stimulus package.Later in the show, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Dr. Jared Ball, a father, husband, Professor of Communication Studies at Morgan State University in Baltimore, MD, the curator of imixwhatilike.org and author of the new book, “The Myth and Propaganda of Black Buying Power,” to talk about efforts by the Democratic "resistance" to co-opt nationwide demonstrations against police terror and convert them into anti-Trump street festivals, how the "Black misleadership class" is exploiting the relatively disorganized nature of the protest movement in Washington DC to insert their own narrative, and how the desire for increased miltary spending is driving the campaign to escalate tensions with China.

Black political figures from DuBois to Garvey have embraced the notion that Black America's combined "buying power", if harnessed correctly, would be a revolutionary force. But is this true? Morgan State University Professor Dr. Jared Ball joins us to discuss this issue from his new book "The Myth of Black Buying Power".We'll be addressing the limits of buying power, its roots in Cold War liberalism, and how media's promotion of the myth crowds out more radical political analysis.

In this episode of By Any Means Necessary, hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman arejoined by Nse Ufot, CEO of the New Georgia Project & the New Georgia Project Action Fund, to talk about attempts by Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp to "re-open" the economy by pushing service workers back to work amid the pandemic, why she believes the move "is much more sinister than we are giving it credit for," and why the move ultimately represents an attemptb6 the ruling class to offload the financial obligations of the state onto the working class and small businesses.In the second segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Fredyson Martinez, vice president of UTIER, the Electrical and Irrigation Industrial Workers Union, to talk about the revelation that residents of Puerto Rico have still not received a single coronavirus stimulus check, why he believes the crisis is in many ways "worse than Hurricane Maria," and why so little of the $2.2 billion allotted to Puerto Rico for coronavirus response efforts have yet to trickle down to working people there.In the third segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Abayomi Azikiwe, the editor of the Pan-African News Wire, to talk about the news that the Pentagon has admitted for the second time that civilians were killed by their ongoing bombing campaign in Somalia, the role of AFRICOM in attempts by the ruling class to re-colonize Africa, and how the lack of healthcare infrastructure caused by a state of intentional underdevelopment leaves the poorest most vulnerable to the spread of Coronavirus.Later in the show, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Dr. Jared Ball, Professor of Communication Studies at Morgan State University, curator of imixwhatilike.org, and author of the new book “The Myth and Propaganda of Black Buying Power,” to talk about the role sports have played as an instrument of colonization in the history of US imperialism, how the decrease in Black and working class buying power which led to a widespread inability to purchase the consumer goods has caused a crisis among the capitalist class about how to ensure the system's viability, how this crisis is manifesting in a wave of attempts to demonize alternative economic models in other countries deemed enemy states and broad attempts to subdue residents.
This week we talk to Jared Ball, professor of Communication Studies at Morgan State University in Baltimore. We talk to him about his new book, The Myth and Propaganda of Black Buying Power, the history of the concept, and its connection to black radical politics. We also have some ‘Choice Words’ about The Last Dance for its uncritical look at Michael Jordan, and it’s lopsided attack on Jerry Krause. In addition, we have ‘Just Stand Up’ and ‘Just Sit Down’ awards to the 1st draft pick of the 2020 draft, Joe Burrow, for using his platform to talk about poverty, and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the league for the way they presented the NFL Draft, particularly the self-serving celebration of first responders. All that and more on this week’s Edge of Sports!

This is the radio magazine that brings you news, commentary and analysis from a Black Left perspective. I’m Nellie Bailey, along with my co-host Glen Ford. Coming up: James Baldwin had a very long career, but never wrote an entire book about Africa. However, a Black scholar says Baldwin’s later works show a keen understanding of African liberation. And, should a female athlete be disqualified from competition if some people think she looks and performs too much like a man? But first – Dr.Jared Ball has spent years disproving the proposition that the road to progress lies in harnessing Black consumers’ “buying power,” which supposedly exceeds a trillion dollars a year. Dr. Ball is a professor of Communications at Morgan State University and author of “The Myth and Propaganda of Black Buying Power.” The great writer James Baldwin is mostly known for his insights on race in the United States. But, according to Dag-Mah-Wee Woub-shet, a professor of English at the University of Pennsylvania, Baldwin displayed a growing understanding of the African liberation movement in his later works. Professor Woub-shet wrote an article on the subject for the Journal of Contemporary African Art. Sociology professor Ah-NEE-ma Ah-jeh-PONG, of Simmons University, specializes in exploring questions of gender and sports. Dr. Ah-jeh-PONG published an article, recently, that focused on the 2012 Olympic Games, where South African women’s track star Caster Seh-MEN-yah won a silver medal but caused a huge controversy by looking too “mannish.”
On this episode of By Any Means Necessary, hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman are joined by Dr. Bill Honigman, California State Coordinator and Co-Coordinator of the Healthcare as a Human Right Issue Organizing Team for Progressive Democrats of America to discuss the ongoing spread of coronavirus, the poor response from the the Trump administration, how COVID-19 impacted the Joe Biden/Bernie Sanders debate and how the pandemic shows the need for Medicare For All.In the second segment, Jacquie and Sean are joined by Richard Becker, author of Palestine, Israel and the U.S. Empire, to discuss Israel's Benny Gantz being given a mandate to organize a "unity" government in Israel, how Netanyahu is maneuvering to avoid jail time after facing corruption charges, and the prospect for how coronavirus may exacerbate the colonial, apartheid dynamic between Israel and Palestine.In the third segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Dr. Jack Rasmus, economist, radio show host, & author of 'The Scourge of Neoliberalism' to discuss how the Trump administration's response to the economic slump caused by the coronavirus is as inadequate as the medical response, why Trump's stimulus package failed and the ripple effects of the most recent economic downturn.Later in the show, Jacquie and Sean are joined by Dr. Jared Ball, a father, husband, Professor of Communication Studies at Morgan State University in Baltimore, MD, and the curator of imixwhatilike.org and author of the upcoming book, “The Myth and Propaganda of Black Buying Power” to discuss how imperialism impacts the response to coronavirus in the US and the West, how Bernie Sander's foreign policy points to the need for a mass anti-imperialist movements and the politics of revolutionary violence in media regarding the TV show "Hunters."
On this episode of "By Any Means Necessary" hosts Jacquie Luqman and Sean Blackmon are joined by journalist Andy Brennan to talk about the significance of Sinn Fein's surprise victory at the Irish polls, how the failures of the two major liberal parties led to the resurgence in Irish Republicanism, why the punditocracy is drawing the wrong conclusions about the political landscape in Ireland, why Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar is refusing to align with Sinn Fein, how long-term changes in political identity in Ireland are bringing about a new political landscape, how negotiations could play out as Sinn Fein has the chance to form a coalition government, and how colonization in Ireland and the country's lack of imperialist history helped preclude the revival of far-right anti-immigrant factions currently facing so many other countries in Europe.In the second segment, Jacquie and Sean are joined by Sputnik News Analyst Wyatt Reed to talk about the trial of four members of the Embassy Protection Collective which began today, why they're being targeted with charges of "interfering with the protective functions of the US Department of State" for their efforts to protect the Venezuelan embassy from members of the Venezuelan opposition who besieged the embassy for weeks, and how the Venezuelan opposition is attempting to pack the courthouse and influence the trial's outcome.In the third segment, Jacquie Luqman and Sean Blackmon are joined by international affairs and security analyst Mark Sleboda to talk about the possibility that Turkish attacks on the Syrian Arab Army could lead to open warfare between those countries, why the Turkish government's aggressive rhetoric doesn't always translate into action, why the Syria conflict may be in the "end-game" phase, the role of many "moderate rebels" in the US government's larger proxy war against Iran, and whether the violence between such proxy forces could spill into a war between the United States and Russia. Later in the show, Jacquie and Sean are joined by Dr. Jared Ball, professor at Morgan State University and curator of imixwhatilike.org, to talk about the reemergence of a speech by Mike Bloomberg justifying the racist consequences of his stop-and-frisk policy, why the Democratic establishment is so nervous about the popular movement surrounding Bernie Sanders, the new Netflix docu-series "Who Killed Malcolm X?" and the recent uptick in public interest around Malcolm X, why revolutionary ideologies like Black Nationalism and Pan-Africanism go largely unmentioned in the series, how the show misses the mark by reducing his assassination to a personal disagreement and downplaying the role of the US government which targeted him so viciously, the tendency of the capitalist political establishment to co-opt and defang revolutionary figures like Malcolm, how the docu-series fits into a larger push to replace the more radical figure presented in Alex Haley's Autobiography of Malcolm X with the meeker Malcolm 'Reinvented' by Manning Marable's biography, why economic stagnation in Black communities means Malcolm's ideas are more relevant than ever, why European immigrants are seen as more 'American' than colonized populations who've been here for hundreds or thousands of years, the role of the Black mis-leadership class in enshrining the myth of Black Buying Power, and why advocates of Black Capitalism inevitably obscure the primary role of capitalism in marginalizing Black communities.

Attorney Antonio Moore and Political Commentator Yvette Carnell discuss the Myth of Black Buying Power. Read: https://imixwhatilike.org/mythofblackbuyingpower/ Professor Jared Ball Myth Basics.Grio.com: According to a new Nielson report called African-American Women: Our Science, Her Magic, the businesses run by and the brand loyalty of Black women is driving part of the economy, so much so that total Black spending power is expected to hit a record $1.5 trillion by 2021.The number of businesses majorly owned by Black women grew 67 percent between 2007 and 2012, at a rate higher than all women generally in the United States.“Black women have strong life-affirming values that spill over into everything they do. The celebration of their power and beauty is reflected in what they buy, watch and listen to, and people outside their communities find it inspiring,” says Cheryl Grace, Senior Vice President of U.S. Strategic Community Alliances and Consumer Engagement, Nielsen. “Understanding how Black women’s values affect their buying decisions has long been a marketing necessity. Now, marketers must also recognize the intercultural influence of Black women on the general market as an increasingly vital part of how all women see themselves, their families and the rest of the world.” Read More: https://thegrio.com/2017/09/21/black-buying-power-to-hit-1-5-trillion-thanks-to-black-women/
