NOTE: THIS IS MUCH LONGER THAN I STARTED OUT WITH

In a talk in the Atlantic magazine about his recently released book when Barack Obama said a statement, in which I agree, “America as an experiment is genuinely important to the world not because of the accidents of history that made us the most powerful nation on Earth, but because America is the first real experiment in building a large, multiethnic, multicultural democracy. And we don’t know yet if that can hold. There haven’t been enough of them around for long enough to say for certain that it’s going to work”.

We believe that for the American Experiment to hold, now is the time address the historical fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of African slavery in the USA between 1789 & 1865 and the progenitor 13 British colonies (that became the USA) between 1619 and 1789 with a work that will address the damage incurred by past public and private sector racism against Africans in the U.S.A. from 1789 to 1868 and citizens of African heritage in American Apartheid from 1868 through 1965 and institutionalized and systemic racism in the public and private sector from 1965 to 2019.

Our solution is called the #BlackFolksPlan.

In the past 75 years the 🇺🇸 has led the world in an imperfect peace. In a speech delivered by President Franklin Roosevelt on January 6, 1941, that became known as his "Four Freedoms Speech," described the President's vision in which the American ideals of individual liberties were extended throughout the world. 

Freedom of speech.
Freedom of worship.
Freedom from want.
Freedom from fear.

I believe that as a nation made big mistakes by not following them after President Roosevelt's death by following the European colonizers in Asia and Africa.

We as leadership of the county recognize that although we may be created equal that Americans of African heritage have faced a flawed citizenship since it was granted in 1868 with institutionalized and systematic racism by government and the private sector.  We are committed to addressing any legacy institutionalized and systematic racism by the county government."

FYI  

The National Community Reinvestment Coalition and its grassroots member organizations such as us create opportunities for people to build wealth. We work with community leaders, policymakers and financial institutions to champion fairness and end discrimination in lending, housing and business.

NCRC was formed in 1990 by national, regional and local organizations to increase the flow of private capital into traditionally underserved communities. NCRC has grown into an association of more than 600 community-based organizations that promote access to basic banking services, affordable housing, entrepreneurship, job creation and vibrant communities for America’s working families.

Members include FAU and AfDiDi along with community reinvestment organizations; community development corporations; local and state government agencies; faith-based institutions; community organizing and civil rights groups; minority and women-owned business associations, as well as local and social service providers from across the nation.

It provides us with agenda-setting research, training, insight and advocacy on behalf of members; with it we can renovate and build affordable homes for low- and moderate-income families; we can work with members to provide counseling to home buyers and owners and business-building expertise to entrepreneurs; we will use it to train and support housing counselors nationwide; we look for it to test, monitor and challenge discrimination in financial services and housing; and we use it to convene and facilitate dialog between financial institutions and community networks such ourselves to increase lending, investments and philanthropy in neighborhoods that need it.

NCRC represents its members before Congress, federal regulatory agencies and the press. NCRC routinely testifies before Congress, and meets with the leadership of banking and financial regulatory agencies. NCRC frequently provides expert commentary for national, regional and local media, and our research and policy papers are routinely cited by journalists, economists and scholars focused on banking, housing, urban renewal, rural development and civil rights.

...... the American Bankers Association (AB), together with several other trade associations, called on the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) to withdraw the agency’s Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) rule change made final in May 2020; instead asking for all three banking agencies to work together on new rules. 

Jesse Van Tol, CEO of the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC), made the following statement:

“This has been a bad week for the OCC’s disastrous CRA rule. First, we won our preliminary battle in federal court by demonstrating that we have standing to sue the agency. And now, the trade organizations that represent bankers have also called for the OCC to withdraw its rule. 

“I think it is clear what the new Biden Administration must do. Just like other Trump Administration policies that have been rescinded or replaced, it is time to do the same for the OCC’s CRA rule.

“The Federal Reserve has an advanced notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPR) for CRA currently on the table. While we would like to see some aspects of their approach strengthened, we believe the Fed’s ANPR is a good starting point to bring the agencies together and produce a unified rule.”

Enclosed is our comments to the OCC and the CRA relationship to the BfP.
