Abdul Hakim Shabazz (INBR) has found his roots lately as he offers a series of posts here, here and here providing his take on local black clergy, black leadership, the collective black community, black youth in general. While we found his posts provocative and for the most part substantive we couldn't help but notice that the cavernous disconnect between the Abdul's words and his deeds.
Simply stated, we have been scouring the blogosphere and written media and have yet to find evidence of Abdul's work on behalf of Indy's black community. Some might even suggest that the the only time Abdul mentions the plight of the black community is to score political points for his friends or against his foes.
That being said we will give him a bump up for doing what Mayor Greg Ballard, Deputy Mayor Olgen Williams and Director Straub seem incapable of doing - addressing this issue in the public square instead of hiding under a desk.
