  2. Dear Readers, I tend to enjoy reading various articles on writing , the industry, the concepts, et cetera. parallel to craft articles. These topics can be fun or engaging. As some of you know, I have a controlled electronic footprint, meaning, I don't keep old posts. This blog never had fifteen posts and never will cause I don't like ejunk. But, I realize, aside my posts to what I created and create, I need a post to just chit chat if you will. So this post will serve that function, through its comments I will posts various topics concerning writing.

  4. If is hard to say, for certain, what you'd do unless you're actually in the situation. A lot of Brothers who have been locked up for a long period of time go back to prison, for a wide variety of reasons. Shoot, some folks go to prison deliberately as they can't make it on the outside
  5. In my Riley Freeman voice, "Nah, nigga dat's gay." Seriously, of yhe top of my head I can't think of any. Even the Brother's whise names pop up on the list book ate strictly romance. Sometimes erotica or book with sex scenes get categorized as romance. At any rate, your story is interesting 🥰 As an aside, look at the advertisement Google placed on the site based upon the content if this conversation (see below). Now Google has prevented me from serving ad on oages with less risque content

  9. But is it really unimaginable? It strikes me as very similar to dumb niggas in 2019 doing dumb nigga stuff to end up back in prison after being released after 5+ years. They are so accustomed to that "life" of being told what to do, getting free food, sleeping in a cage, and surviving like animals among other slaves with white massa in charge. It's like they are scared to make a life for themselves outside of prison. That is my impression of these women in 1841. It's really not that different and certainly not unimaginable. If they survived that long, maybe. The kids were young enough not to be institutionalized, like their mothers. The kids essentially won the lottery, but lost the winning ticket. That causes people to commit suicide. Perhaps the kids went back top New Orleans and told other kids about their visit to a holy place called the Bahamas, similar to my spiritual experience. Maybe they inspired other rebellions as a result. But I still cannot excuse these "mothers" for bringing their kids back to white imperialism. It would have been more dignified simply to kill their kids than make them suffer a long, tortuous death called slavery.
  10. First thing I noticed about your list of romance novels -- all of them are written by women. Do men write romance novels? I know men used to write romantic odes to women; love songs. But even that is going away. I was an 18-year-old college freshman at this time. Every girl I’d had a romantic rendezvous with to that point…she had to make the first move. That’s just how I operated. That’s what I thought gentlemen did. I used to tell my girlfriends in junior high and high school that they had to make the first move, be it a kiss, hands in sensitive places, whatever. But I would never initiate sex as a young man. Of course when I started hanging around more brothas in college, I learned that aggression gets rewarded. I tried to implement some of that stuff. But it just never felt natural. Ms. Lebanon (not going to use her name as its very unique) actually asked me, as we were sitting there, “you want me to take my scarf off?” I was like “yeah” not thinking much of it. Her hair just shocked my system as a young man. She looked like a movie star beauty who was WAY out of my league. She could tell my demeanor changed too. She could literally see my heart beating through my shirt and even commented about it. She grabbed my hand and use my fingers as a brush to brush out her hair. Up to that point, all I’d been with was white girls. I didn’t know Muslim/Arab culture, so I was very cautious. I kept running my fingers through her hair until she kissed me; like REALLY kissed me. That was the signal I needed and I took over from there! ;) Just sad she had to leave the country. Ya’ll have me looking her up online. I cannot find her anywhere. Makes me scared that something bad happened to her. She used to tell me how scary it was growing up for her as a kid with bombs and sh** going off in the distance from her house. I pray she is ok and living a prosperous life.
  11. Here are some Romance Novels sorted by pub date. They are all good (otherwise they would bot be on the site). Personally, I've only read one or two romance novels, but they all follow a formula which culminates in a happy ending. Perhaps you can start with a short story. I found what you've about the girl, so far, very interesting. When she literally "let her hair down," do you think that was a signal? Clearly she was comfortable in your presence and respected your intelligence... but you did not push huh?
  12. @Kareem, I hear you Brother, but consider a woman who never knew freedom -- perhaps for generations -- who was then placed in a foreign land far removed from eveything she knew and expected to fend for herself and children. Clearly, she felt she was better off back in Virginia. I have no idea why, but it is hard for me to judge someone so harshly a century later in a circumstance that is completely unimaginable. If it is any consolation the kids probably did see freedom as emancipation was just 24 years later.
  13. Well that is jacked up. There are actually two incremental upgrades to the forum software that I have yet to apply. Perhaps one of those upgrades will correct the problem. I'll will apply them evening or the next, and reach out to you to see it this corrects the problem. @Mel Hopkins, thanks for letting me know.

  15. You're damned if you do, and damned if you don't. My deep voice scared white people and/or made them uncomfortable at my last office jobs years ago. I'm not a tall, imposing brotha. But I lift weights and keep in shape. I started wearing glasses instead of contacts to look less "intimidating" because the job paid well and I was willing at that time to play along. But then white chicks start asking you if you want to hang out with their "gay friends." Been almost six years since I've worked in an office setting. I could never do it again. Well my experience led me to truly believe that there's more beyond this world. If this is it, then black people are perpetual slaves living a perpetual nightmare. Interestingly that encounter happened during a week when we were talking about slavery in school. All the kids turned and starred at me when they talked about black slaves. Made me feel so inferior and made me hate history. That encounter made me dig deep into history to shape my future. Still, I wish it could happen to more of our brothers and sisters. Again I don't know what exactly happened that day. But I was well on my way to being a million-dollar coon up to that point. Once I saw "the light," the acting and acquiescence stopped. Funny you say that because I've sat around and wrote about her and I a lot. I feel kind of weird making those writing public because they are very personal and emotion...and I'm a proverbial MAN who doesn't like to talk about feelings much. I've never actually read a romance novel. Give me some good examples by black authors. Maybe that will inspire me. It's more than 100. But you can also look at what is actually in the Constantinian Bible (what I call today's Bible) and its numerous versions...and you see the manipulation. The best example is Genesis 10:3-5. "And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah...By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands." Thus Zionist Israeli "Jews" (Ashkenazis) are Gentiles according to their own Torah. But that passage only appears in the King James Version. The "isle of the Gentiles" part is completely eliminated in the more popular NIV and ESV.
  16. Perfect! At least you can sit back and watch if Ethos Capital keeps its word. I agree - no for-profit organization should be able to hold an extension hostage that supposed to be available to the public. And ICANN held a public comment period and most of the people requested to keep the price cap.
  17. Maybe you're right. But that's still no excuse for coonery on crack. They would be doing their families much more good by establishing lives as free people, perhaps learning to read and write, and keeping an oral and written history of their families. If the whole family is enslaved, there is no hope and no future at all. Personally I think it was selfish and evil for them to take the kids with them. If they want to be slaves, so be it. Those kids sniffed freedom. Just think of how deflated their minds and souls were upon getting back on that slave ship. "Mommy wants us to be slaves, not free kids learning mathematics, reading and potentially becoming successful at something." My heart breaks for the kids.
  18. I saw something about this a few weeks ago and didn't think much of it. Now that I'm looking closer...how the hell can one company own all .org domains...and be able to arbitrarily hike prices and/or execute manipulative policies related to such domains? So far our three .org sites are all the same price as they've been for the past 8-10 years ($14.99). It's always a little more expensive than .com and .net domains. But I did add three years to each so now they don't expire until 2029. @Troy domain age and expiry dates are definitely factors for Google rankings. I set up some A/B tests and our sites are all of a sudden back on the first page of results for victims of police murder simply by changing URL structures. It's mostly due to "fake news" and troll sites popping up and pushing political agendas to manipulate elections that Google doesn't respect new websites. I assume the 13+ years online, no expiry for 10 years and consistency with subject matter works in our favor too.
  19. I just checked my dot-org sites and my renewal fee is $20.99 ... before ICANN lifted the price cap - it was supposed to be $9.99 ...smh

  21. Eating the Forbidden Fruit is a gritty fiction novel loosely based on true events in author Roland Sato Page life. The newcomer author delivers a personal journey into his rise and demise as a St. Louis Police Officer. He takes the readers on a roller coaster ride of good ole family memories to the nightmarish reality of being a police officer indicted on federal drug charges. During his trial he wrote memoirs as a testimonial of redemption. Roland case stems from conflict of his childhood affiliation and his oath to uphold the law. What is certain one can't run from sin for karma is much faster. The author actually wrote the novel years ago however after battling Lupus he lost his motivation to complete it. After promising his mother , Fumi Karasawa, who recently passed. Roland opened his computer to finish what he had started, keeping his promise to his mother. Also he would like to encourage others that with determination they too can reestablish themselves.Once diagnosed with Lupus he had to reinvent his career as a popular tattoo artist in the St. Louis area to a author newcomer. The disease affected his motor skills making him unable to tattoo. The silver lining is that his family support keeps him going. Writing is quite therapeutic for new author. If you are anticipating the release of "Eating The Forbidden Fruit" then your wait won't be long. be on the look out for the fictional novel in early 2020 on all major book outlets.
  22. I wouldn't be too hard on our sisters who wanted to return, perhaps the had family back in NOLA.
  23. Well they banned Farrakhan, so you're in good company 🙂
  24. @Troy I don't have any personal social media accounts. Been banned from Facebook and Twitter for almost three years. I saw this online and posted it to several client social media accounts to reproduce the effect. In one instance, this was the result - a black author's Facebook business page. The other times were posted on various e-commerce Facebook pages and it was fine; didn't get flagged.
  25. Last week
  26. It is probably a minor ranking signal -- google is too opaque to say -- but they did publish a video saying it was a signal. Given the risk of potentially having to pay much more may make it worth the investment. I only have one .org domain, https://cis3630.org i just looked it up and it expires in Feburary!
