50 years or is it 400 Years = less than 1% (ie .99%) nationally according to the US Census Bureau or less than a half of one percent (ie .4955%) in Ohio of all business revenue earned by African Americans. What has been the ramifications and implications of these shameful, tragic figures on the economic health of black communities and the country as a whole?

Now is the time for a change.

The ramifications and the implications of these shameful, tragic figures on the economic health of Black communities are staggering. This lack of economic parity has led to higher crime rates, higher rates of imprisonment, higher rates of unemployment and lower educational achievement. This downward spiral in the Black community effects the whole country.

This letter is written to inform the country of the steps that our virtual organization has taken and our plans for the future. We think that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and its counterpart, other recovery initiatives, the general budget provides an opportunity to redress some of the systemic and personal economic equalities.

The National Fairness and Growth Campaign has created a grassroots campaign of practitioners who have a long term operational knowledge of past practices . These business people are very familiar with the philosophies, strategies, approaches, programs and projects ostensibly designed to address the history and practices of discrimination towards African Americans that levels the playing field. By extension we also address discriminatory practices towards other groups

The National Fairness and Growth Campaign will be a significant advocate for the "greening" of America especially in its vulnerable communities. The Campaign does not have negative presumptions regarding current planning or execution of the Congress or President Obama’s administration budget or initiatives. We seek to provide solutions gained from the hard earned insight into potential enforcement of existing public laws, regulations, new initiatives and programs through the use of “Best Practices” that level the playing field(s).

The National Fairness and Growth Campaign seeks not to have negative presumptions regarding the current planning or execution of the ARRA and TARP or the FY 2010 general budget. We seek to provide solutions gained from the hard earned insight into potential enforcement of existing public laws, regulations and new initiatives and programsthrough the use of “Best Practices” to Erase the Digital Divide.

In erasing the Digital divide we reject the notion that there is not available a shovel ready American next generation workforce ready to be trained. We are calling on creating a public private partnership that would oversee a possible investment of over $260,000,000,000 in a million American youth over a ten year period starting no later than December 31, 2010 is made to create a next generation workforce in 25 Urban Areas, 25 Statewide Rural Regions and 10 Native American Tribal lands.

This is a follow up to our previous symposium regarding our concerns and hopes relative to the very fast moving American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan (ARRP), now public law as of February 17th, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and its counterpart the TARP initiatives and implementation of the FY2010 Budget.

It is our plan to develop aoer the next two weeks a development strategy that will support over a million students on connected campus around the nation. It would also connect a total of 500 million people via our global public private sector distance learning infrastructure that will Erase the Digital Divide. This includes 200 million people living in the United States and 300 million people in other countries. It is to be built a multinational shovel ready patent protected next generation third frontier digital infrastructure that supports a logistics infrastructure built around the United States Postal Service.

It will be financed in it's prototype state by a 200 million dollar underwriting according to the Principles and Findings of the National Fairness and Growth Campaign and all current federal state and local laws, including Presidential order in force as approved by the US Attorney General.

All this will be financed as a private public partnership under current federal law, agency and department funding and Presidential Orders. It will employ over 60,000 people by September 2010. It is our goal starting with Cincinnati to enroll a million people in schools and colleges by December 2010 to become part of the Change in Americas workforce.
