A new Your Black World/Kulture Kritic poll shows that the majority of African Americans are disappointed in the state of black leadership in America. When asked, ‘Are you happy with the state of black leadership in America?” 85 percent of poll respondents said that they were either unhappy or extremely unhappy with the current state of affairs.
Most of the respondents also seemed to feel that white media defines who the current black leaders are in America. Readers were asked the question: “Do you think that predominantly white media determines who the black leadership is going to be?” In response, 69 percent of respondents answered “yes,” while only 19% answered “no.” The rest of the participants said they were not sure.
Finally, survey results claim that most African Americans believe that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are defined as predominant leaders of the black community. Respondents were asked, “Do you think that most of America defines black leadership to consist primarily of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton?” In response to this question, nearly 3/4 of survey respondents (74%) answered “yes.”
