After just a few minutes into the other debate, Project 21 member Wayne Dupree seemed to have his opponent agreeing with him when it came to those who want to be seen as leaders of black America!
Wayne debated Trevor Lee Hardin of People of African Descent in America about the current state of race in America in general and black progress in particular. Wayne came out swinging against a pessimistic Hardin, saying “things are different that they were in the 60s.” The problem, as Wayne explained, is that “big government programs [are] still out there to carry people” and that so-called black leaders are always playing the victimization card and trying to convince people “you have to look to the government… [as your] savior.”
In the end, after hammering away at so-called black leaders Wayne insisted are “in it for themselves” and that the black community should have rid themselves of these millstones long ago because they “always had a chance,” even Hardin was taking Wayne’s position. They appeared to agree that black Americans — if they must have a leader at all — must find people different from the victimizers who now claim to represent them.
