  1. Past hour
  2. So....... After reading that story, my initial reaction was to shake my head and say: "It's not enough for Mel and Cynique to proudly proclaim how attracted and appreciative they are of powerful confident White men......but now YOU are posting stories about how "beautiful" White men with golden hair (if that's what you want to call beautiful) are coming to your rescue and comparing to if not outright calling them angels !!! Because of earlier Christian conditioning, too many of our people and especially our women have a deep down conditioning since childhood to see White men as their angels, saviors, and protectors which is why our women tend to be so much more inlove with "Jesus" than most Black men." But you know what? I wasn't there and don't know what happened nor what you went through so I can't condemn it or praise it with my arm chair philosphying. I'm glad you got the help that you needed sis. I just hope that The Supreme Being continues to send ME help when I need it. I prefer that the humans sent to help me come in the form of BLACK men and women, but I'll accept them in any color.
  3. Today
  4. If you search American Gods and Nancy. Something should come up.
  5. Yeah these videos are not available to view in the US. I'll need to use a VPN to watch them. But I will :-)
  6. @Chevdove What, don't you cosign the bit about Instagram?
  7. @Cynique I hear you. If you don't do it I'll do it for you :-) It would be best with your input. It would be interesting to read you take on GOT after the series ends. Yes the violence and the sex was gratuitous. In the later seasons they seemed to have back off on the sex and no one died in the season opener so... My kid and her coworkers have a pool and chart for who will die first this season. So far those who picked no one are winning :-) The acting and production of GOT in on the scale of a major motion picture. My favorite character is Tyrion Lannister, that dwarf is too cool! But was he too trust of his conniving and incestuous sister? @Delano I was not familiar with the series American Gods it looks worth checking out. But I don't have access to Starz. I'll check to see if it is on Amazon Prime before I allow my subscription to lapse.
  8. Hey @Chevdove thanks again for sharing your story. You know me I was like the message should have sent to 9-1-1 not you :-) Seriously, why didn't those folks, on the job, call 911 when the girl looked like she was about to pass out? Why didn't you drive her to the emergency room? Trust me, if you looked "gray" and "waxy," and then passed out in my call we'd be headed to the nearest emergency room. Why didn't the boyfriend take her to the hospital or to see a doctor? Also, reading this story it seems to me that religion Jew was the underlying cause of all of this difficulty. Is this something that you'd ever considered?
  9. One of the characters on American Gods.

  11. In modernity many Black people speak to finding roots or gaining reparations or many other thing offline that require a collective power that does not exist or an individual power that does not exist. I am not suggesting said power will not become to a black group or black individual offline. But, I am certain it is easier for a black collective or individual task online to be successful. To that end, I cognize a nice way to show who black people are today, that can have value tomorrow , collectively or individually, is through individual sigils. The data storage for the sigils will be linked at the postend to this article. The comments to this post will be links to each sigil made, which is composed of the graphic, name, and url to main place online. https://photos.app.goo.gl/HXbBwMv3DtSogJnh7

  13. "Game Of Thrones" is not for everybody. The plot is intriguing, the acting and dialogue outstanding but the violence and sex are gratuitous. Keeping up with the characters and story-line for a 10-year run of over 60 episodes is a challenge but i've binge-watched it in its entirety 3 times on HBO re-reuns during the yearly hiatuses, and i've found it to be well worth the wait for this final season which is off to an interesting start. I credit this epic with inspiring me to keep on living. It ends in May, so i'm hanging on, hoping to even make it to August for my 86th birthday. 😱 A lot of latecomers to "GOT" don't stay with it, and complain about various aspects of its production before dropping out. Other people boast about having never watched one single episode of it, and i look at them, shrug, and say: "so what"? I never try to persuade anyone to become a fan. You either like it, or you don't. What with all of the frenzy over the releases from super hero movie franchises, and Star Wars reboots, people are hungry for escapism, yearning for somebody to come and save the world. Without even trying, Trump is a perfect anti-hero by default. As much as i try to tune him out, I really hate him and his supporters who are growing in numbers while Democrats chase their tails. @Troy i m trying to muster up some energy and concentration to "do my thing". It ain't easy being a zombie. 😖
  14. American Gods liked both the book and the series.
  15. Season 1 Season 2 Season 1
  16. me either. I plan to look and see what it's about though.
  17. Last week
  18. Nehemiah Garvey is a man of faith and a high school basketball star in Newark, New Jersey. It's the 1960s and the city has been torn apart by riots (or rebellions, depending on one's perspective). Nehemiah wants to keep playing ball at Weequahic High School, where the talented and nationally celebrated Mickey Marcus is the coach. But Mickey is the only white coach left in the city and many powerful figures in the black community want to see him go. Nehemiah and Mickey undertake some basketball diplomacy to help turn Newark's reputation around. Mickey keeps the reins and with Nehemiah leading the community on and off the court, the team launches a bid to win the consensus national title. This fictional tale during the very real and turbulent events of the '60s, using Newark as a window into the changing demographics of urban areas across the country.
  19. Author: Tamar Grigsby Book Title: Little Lady Rose ISBN #: 978-1728308593 Book Summary: Rose is an inquisitive little girl who doesn’t think highly of herself until she is exposed to her mother’s uplifting, blossoming garden. This journey between a mother and daughter is guaranteed to lead to positive feelings like confidence and self-acceptance. “Little Lady Rose” illustrates that experiences, coupled with an adults encouragement and support, will foster a child’s self-esteem. I realize that 7 of 10 girls believe they are not good enough or do not measure up in some way, including their looks, performance in school and relationships with family and friends. This book sheds light on the pressing issue young girls face daily, battling self esteem. With the riveting increase in depression, suicide, bullying, and trafficking among our youngest children, it is important we foster their emotional development. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1BCxuD3Nn8ByiSUBxs1O8CbxEpaasotb7/view?usp=drive_web Please provide with a book review and book highlight.
  20. Well any little girl who has a parents that would allow her to see this film has bigger problems to deal with than this film. Look, this is a dumb comedy that was critically crapped on and will have zero cultural significance. We have bigger fish to fry like Facebook's Instagram.
  21. @Pioneer1You have never lived in or around Chicago, nor Atlanta so your observations belong in the context of that. And you are apparently incapable of comprehending the difference between upper class inherited wealth and second generation middle class affluence. What might, though a stretch of the imagination, qualify for Chicago's black upper class did not make a bee-line for Atlanta (or are they summer homeowners in Martha's vineyard.) They stayed right here in the University of Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood where the newly-rich Obamas and the prominent families of such people as Valerie Jarret reside. The majority of black people who migrated from Chicago to Atlanta, relocated for the weather and the lower cost of real estate, and they were average people. The Chicago Defender is on its last legs like Ebony and other print media. Hispanics and Arabs are not driving out or taking over black neighborhoods.
