Just because you say you want to help “black” folk doesn’t mean I give you a pass on truth or shady behavior. In fact, precisely the opposite. And that’s whether you’re “black” or “white.”
You can withstand the attacks of those without if you are true and righteous to those within. But how can I help you with our enemies or support you if you are not true to us? This is regardless of your ultimate personal intent. Even if your intent is true, if your operational methodology is dishonesty, personal attacks, and questionable ethics with communal funds, you can not advance regardless and frankly, SHOULD not.
