    Elitism in all its forms must be combated at all times and any person who refuses to sell items for the organization is expressing an elitist attitude. That all people in the United States engage in productive work for the benefit of all the people in the world. When you check it out concretely, many of the most anti-white forces in the black community are accepting foundation grants and white church grants for reformist programs, yet these vultures criticize third world people who accept money from whites for political purposes. The deeper our roots into the community, the harder will it be for the government and the capitalistic bosses to wipe out our organization.

    The above are suggestions for raising money; the following is our fund raising policy which must be adhered to at all times. But many students will respond to the calls of the workers. Utilize the services of third world teachers to start remedial and advanced reading schools for workers. In spite of the many artisans, one of the most important black jobs was barbering - requiring little capital, the number grew steadily during the antebellum. Stacy tries to ask questions about their relationship, but Derek brushes her off.

    The elimination of all forms of oppression of women in all phases of society, on the job and in the home. Encourage them to go to work in the plants and organize and learn what production is all about. Yet in a bitter twist of fate, just as Memphis blacks achieved a measure of justice in the workplace, the largest employers closed their doors in search of cheaper labor elsewhere, in the process shredding the stable working class and increasing the number of the working poor. Yet because of racism and segregation, their contribution remains largely unknown.
