Some of the so-called Black "leaders" are just shake-down artists. Whenever mid or big business is threatened with litigation or workplace unrest over discriminatory pay, promotion practices, etc. they get a visit from one of these guys offering "consultation services" for a multi-million fee. If the business refuses, they take sides with the instigators and stir things up even more. I won't name specific names, but I have heard this from several different large and medium business managers and owners.
