BARC’s “Broken Record”

It seems like every few years, some right-wing African American activists announce that they are launching an effort to address the needs of the community via a new agenda of pro-life and pro-family values – the latest to do so is something called BARC: “The coalition is called Black Americans for Real Change (BARC) and was co-founded by William Owens, Jr. and Alveda King — the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King. Owens says BARC is a nucleus of believers who are taking a pro-active step to creating real solutions to problems and not a continuing debate on issues like civil rights and racism.”
