Elijah Cummings, the Homeowner Crusader – Joseph Williams

20 Nov

For President Barack Obama, fixing the collapsed housing market may be a part of political calculus, a key factor in winning a second term. For Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the fight to keep people in their homes and out of foreclosure is a personal mission.

“I feel it just sitting here and talking to you — it’s emotion,” Cummings told POLITICO in an interview last week. “When I walk out of my door every morning, five of 15 homes on the other side of the street are in foreclosure. … I see the devastation it brings on people every day.”

    Black folks must get out of this slave mentality….We must take action ourselves…Only little kids depend on parents for their well being…We must stop waiting on somebody else to help us succeed….We must micro manage our own affairs….
