Project 21’s “Blueprint” Makes Fox Business Network

In a recent panel discussion with Neil Cavuto on the Fox Business Network, Project 21 Co-Chairman Stacy Washington cited our “Blueprint for a Better Deal for Black America” as constructive tool for bring lawmakers together on issues that can really help improve and advance the black community.

During a discussion about Representative Maxine Waters making more incendiary comments on the floor of Congress and how this detracts from serious debate on important issues, Stacy noted:

So, instead of being able to come in – Neil – and say things that broaden the conversation and bring true policy into the conversation, she really just levels a lot of personal attacks. So she got into this excited, very unprofessional back-and-forth with another member.

And I think it is unfortunate – especially when organization like mine, Project 21, we have a “Blueprint for Black America” that addresses some of the issues she claims to care about.

And I want to be specific here. We’re talking about minority impact statements – that’s one of our policy recommendations for the President. We actually went to the White House a few weeks ago. We talked about this with staffers. We think there are places we can get together with Democrats and make some good policy that really benefits all Americans – especially those in the black community.

But her getting upset about this rollback of a ridiculous rule that actually tells people you can’t lend based on credit scores – that’s crazy. And that’s why she’s getting negative attention instead of people paying attention to what she claims to care about.

During the segment, Stacy was able to show off the cover of the Blueprint.
