I usually wouldn’t recommend celebrities entering into politics. However, Black American celebrities have much influence not just in the African American community, but across all racial lines in the United States and around the world. I believe it is best to take advantage of the opportunities.
If you look at Black American celebrities that have charisma, intelligence, trustworthiness and has the ability to lead and influence, Black American celebrities that come in mind are persons such as Denzel Washington, who I believe could be a great US Senator representing any of the States in the African American Homeland. Denzel Washington is a type of person that can unite the Black American community for a common cause or goal.. Will Smith who is an internationally recognized brand could be a productive Governor. I believe Will Smith has the ability to bring foreign companies or capital into the African American Homeland.
Other Black American celebrities that could be great leaders and convey the African American Homeland Ideology to the masses includes, Larry Fishburne, Morgan Freeman, Samuel L. Jackson, Forest Whitaker, Don Cheadle, Wesley Snipes could be a great Mayor of a city under 100,000 people, Danny Glover, Spike Lee, Chris Rock, Eddie Murphy, Levar Burton, Steve Harvey, Lee Haney, Michelle Obama would be a great Senator, Tichina Arnold, Venessa Williams, Angela Bassett and others.
In the African American Homeland there are now life after Sports. Pro Athletes can now run for public office. The African American Homeland has over 3,299 incorporated cities, 688 counties and 1,200 State Legislature seats. We need strong persuasive leaders to run the cities and counties such as, Julius Erving, Tony Dungy, Herman Edward, Charles Barkley, Alonzo Morning, Barry Bonds, Derek Jeter, Tim Duncan, Jason Kidd, Floyd Mayweather, Ray Allen, Venus Williams, Serena Williams, Reggie Theus, Reggie Miller, Cheryl Miller and countless others. Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Lebron James, Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, Russell Simmons, Kenneth Chenault, Robert Johnson, Aliko Dangote, Nigerian Businessman worth over 20 billion dollars, (Get this man American citizenship, we need him in the African American Homeland) are our Business Leaders. Elder Statesmen include Harry Belafonte, Dick Gregory, Sidney Portier, Bill Russell, Bill Cosby, Cicely Tyson, Jim Brown, Louis Farakhan, Andrew Young, Douglas Wilder, Diana Ross and a few others.
Colin Powell or Condeleeza Rice could be our International representatives to the world and Barack Obama once he leave Office can become Chairman of the Economic Community of Eight Southern States, also known as the African American Homeland. If Arnold Swartznegger can represent a large State like California, or Manny Pacquiao who carries 100 million Filipinos on his back, and be a Congressman in the Philippines, why can’t any of the celebrities mentioned above be representatives of the African American Homeland. They are our secret weapons. Most African American celebrities have world stage prowess and instant credibility. Even Dennis Rodman is a friend of a powerful North Korean Dictator. I suggest we used certain celebrities to help promote tourism, economic development and unity in the African American Homeland. And other celebrities can promote African American made products or African American owned Multinational Corporations. What celebrities do you think would be excellent leaders for the African American Homeland?
