Addendum: April 11, 2014
I have been unable to determine who is the bigger "mess", the bogus guys that are "great pretenders", or ineffective Masonic leadership that has allowed this foolishness to go on for so long. And I AM not choosing any side, as both GL's (PHA & Regular GL's) in the United States have shown that they have selected many incompetent leaders lacking any intestinal fortitude or a true moral compass in many instances.
As long as this was viewed as a "Black" problem, mainstream Freemasonry in America ignored it, until there started being encroachments by bogus/ illegitimate groups made up of Europeans such as RGLE (Regular Grand Lodge of England), who cannot explain what makes them so regular to anyone that asks. It was ignored for years due to men of color in general (and Prince Hall GL's) not being viewed as competent or qualified to receive the degrees of Freemasonry, when nothing could be further from the TRUTH.
These bogus groups have merged and/ or are working together, something they have not traditionally done in the past.
So that means we, as legitimate, regular, recognized Freemasons better step our games up or learn the new rules and adjust accordingly to combat this problematic epidemic we now have on our hands.
