13 Amazing black celebrities who truly love black people

It’s easy to call out a celebrity for doing nothing for the black community, but what about those who are doing great things?  We asked some readers to tell us which black celebrities are doing the most for the black community.  The list is below and you can tell us what you think:

1) Jamie Foxx – Jamie’s activism has been astonishing.  He not only stood up for the family of Trayvon Martin, he also spoke up against celebrities who weren’t doing anything for black people.  Way to go Jamie.

2) Jim Brown – Jim has been a warrior for truth and justice since his playing days many years ago.  But with athletes being as weak as they are right now, who’s going to take his place?

3) Harry Belafonte – Well into his 80s, Harry is a trailblazer in every regard.   He has spoken out on matters of social justice long before it was safe to do so, often putting his career on the line to make a stand.  There is no other entertainer like him.

4) Spike lee – Spike might be a little rough at times, but all that he says about black people comes from a place of love.  Who else in Hollywood is telling the black story in an ethical way?  And no, we’re not talking about all those slave movies.

5) Stevie Wonder – Remember when Stevie Wonder spoke up against Stand Your Ground and agreed to boycott all states that have that law?  That was a pretty bold position for him to take and probably cost him a lot of money.  Stevie, we love you.

6) Nina Simone – This Warrior queen is unlike any other, even after passing into the afterlife.  So, she’s the one celebrity we had to bring back from the ancestors in order to acknowledge her contribution.  Simone regularly used her platform as an opportunity to advocate for the fight against Jim Crow.  She also didn’t believe in marching in peace; she was ok with a little violence to get the job done.

7) Kanye West – Kanye is on his own planet half the time, but you have to give him credit for the song “New Slaves” as a way to speak out against the prison industrial complex.  Also, remember when he boldly proclaimed that “George Bush doesn’t care about black people?”  That was classic.

8) Dick Gregory – Not just a comedian, Gregory has taken a stand for the black community for many decades and will continue to do so until his last days on earth.

9) Paul Mooney – To us, he’s a younger version of Dick Gregory and carrying the torch quite well.  Paul isn’t ashamed to talk about the black struggle in America, which is why he’s less famous than he should be.

10) Louis Farrakhan – Both a celebrity and a leader, the founder of the Nation of Islam does and says things that no other black leader is able to do.  He is also the only public figure capable of pulling together a million black men in a call for standing up for their families.  This was epic.

11) Russell Simmons – This pick is controversial, because he’s made mistakes.  But there is no celebrity in the world who has done more to fight against the prison industrial complex and the War on Drugs.  Russell got the Rockefeller Drug Laws changed in New York and also got Attorney General Eric Holder to revisit the prison problem nation-wide.  He has to be given credit for these accomplishments, even if he stepped over the line with that Harriet Tubman video, which threatened to ruin his legacy.

12) Chuck D. – Wouldn’t it be nice if Chuck D was still in control of hip-hop?  But the government would never allow that.  He had too much power and too much intelligence.  Now that hip-hop has been dumbed down, those who fear black people are safe, for now.

13) Magic Johnson – This celeb puts businesses in neighborhoods that other companies won’t go.  He also uses his business skill to elevate impoverished communities.  Let’s hear it for Magic Johnson, who is far more than another former athlete.

  1. Prevent losing the job being hired by submitting a general resume! All a general resume does, is show how you look no better than anyone else – not how you outperform your competition for the same position.

  2. The rule was, each resume opened by writing an Objective Statement – but no more! Today’s hiring experts all confirm, such statements contribute nothing when determining your work suitability. Thus, never write an Objective Statement!

  3. In the past, all resumes began by composing an Objective Statement – but not now! In today’s job market, employment experts all state clearly, these kinds of resume items do nothing when determining your occupation capability. Which means, do not write an Objective Statement!

  4. I needed to thank you for this excellent read!! I absolutely enjoyed every bit of it.
    I have you saved as a favorite to check out new stuff you
    post…

  5. In earlier times, resumes started by using an Objective Statement – but not any more! In today’s job market, employment professionals all state clearly, this category of resume items do nothing when judging your work capability. Which means, do not include an Objective Statement!

  6. In today’s job market, companies do not go through each of the four hundred or greater resumes they get – for just one job offering! The fact is, they will instantly toss aside ninety percent of them, if the resume fails to grab the reader’s interest.

  7. It is the best time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you some interesting things or tips. Maybe you can write next articles referring to this article. I wish to read more things about it!

  15. Very descriptive blog, I enjoyed that bit.
    Will there be a part 2?

  16. Prevent losing the job being hired by using a general resume! All a general resume does, is show how you look no better than anyone else – not how you outpace your competition for the same position.

  17. Can you pay for a general one-size-fits-all resume, that you can submit anytime, anywhere, for any employment? The Truth: It is a horrible error! The reality: Hiring decision-makers are expected to sort through as many as four hundred resumes each day! Thus they toss out any resume that is not specifically targeted to the work being hired.

  18. I like it when people get together and share opinions. Great website, continue the good work!

  19. Stop losing the job offering by submitting a general resume! What a general resume does, is tell them how you fade into the crowd – not how you surpass your rivals for the same employment.

  20. Terrific paintings! This is the kind of information that should be shared around the net. Disgrace on Google for no longer positioning this post upper! Come on over and visit my web site . Thanks =)

  21. You must ensure that the cover letter pulls in your potential hiring decision-maker, reassures them, and also leads them to read the resume so they can choose you for the interview. Given the immense volume of resumes sent to every employment offer currently, the cover letter often becomes the leading determining factor between if you score an interview – or get tossed into the garbage!

  23. It’s nearly impossible to find educated people on this topic, however, you sound like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks

  24. Thanks for sharing

  25. As you are searching for a job, first impressions are top priority! And the best first impression companies know of you – is your cover letter.

  26. An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment. I believe that you should write more on this issue, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people do not discuss these issues. To the next! Cheers!!

  27. Hey there! I simply would like to give you a big thumbs up for your excellent info you have right here on this post. I will be coming back to your web site for more soon.

  28. Today’s employers rate the Duties-and-Responsibilities resume format, as antiquated and of no value. Instead, hiring decision-makers must find out what makes you a better choice than other candidates, including real-life examples of improvements you made for prior organizations.

  29. Resume snippets like “accomplished”, have no value. They come across as cliche and fail to put you in a positive way. Ditto for a statement such as “dependable”. The right statements emphasize what you did while at your former positions and how valuable you are going to be to this prospective hiring decision-maker.

  30. Today’s employers rate the duties/responsibilities resume technique, as outdated and worthless. Instead, companies wish to learn what distinguishes you from other resumes, with on-the-job examples of contributions you’ve made at former work.

  32. Sticking to the duties and responsibilities resume approach, will guarantee that your resume is thrown into the garbage! Interviewers are not interested in what you did at prior occupations. Instead, they must hear the unique added value you have made.

  33. I have recently read multiple articles pertaining to this topic however you have made several pertinent points. Despite my thinking there is nothing more to investigate, you’ve proven me to be wrong.

  34. Your style is unique in comparison to other folks I’ve read stuff from. Thanks for posting when you’ve got the opportunity, Guess I’ll just book mark this page.
