Black attorney notes immigration's impact on black Americans but refuses to hold black leadership accountable

Antonio Moore, a black attorney in Los Angeles, recently wrote an outstanding column addressing mass immigration's negative impact on black Americans, especially those with few skills and little education.

Unfortunately, like other enlightened blacks who have written about this subject, he fails to shine a light on those black "leaders" who have stood mute while our federal government has allowed millions of foreigners to flood this country and force black Americans back to the back of the economic, political and social bus.

I tweeted Mr. Moore expressing my appreciation for his column but added my disappointment that he avoided laying much of the blame at the feet of the nation's black "leaders," including the Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, along with the NAACP and Congressional Black Caucus, who have shown that their words of concern for the people the supposedly care about are just that - words.

This is how Mr. Moore responded:

It's a brief piece and thanks. I don't really deal with blame in the writing. Only outcomes based on the data.

Sorry, Mr. Moore, but that data and the resulting outcomes didn't just pop up by themselves.  It was created by the actions of American politicians and those who claim to still be fighting for the interests of a large segment of our society that has been shoved aside by a dysfunctional federal government that carries water for a business community claiming it cannot exist without a steady influx of cheap foreign labor.

Using a phrase that was made popular in the 1960s, when both the media and the major political parties were falling all over themselves to support the efforts of black Americans to achieve racial equality, I want to say very plainly to Mr. Moore:  "If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem."  If you're unwilling to deal with the blame here, then how are you different from those mentioned above who pay only lip service to their declared goals while in reality are more focused on protecting their own backsides?
