  2. @Pioneer1 you can described the differences in people's skin tones without attributing it to the loaded and scientifically flawed racial designations you and other racists cling to so tightly. Also as previously mentioned you don't consider someone of Cynique complexion "Black," so how would you treat her mistreatment by a white man compared to that of a blond-haired, blue-eyes woman? What type of lotion and soap should she use -- the same on as Barack Obama who actually has a white moth but is darker than Cynique. Del is darker than I am; in fact, Del is darker than many actual native African peoples. Is he a better breed, or a or more superior version, of a so called Black person? We are all human dude. Our skin color does not make as any more or less so, our behavior does that.
  3. @Delano, from a personal perspective the video does not bother me. As I said I watched it in it's entirety. My concern is for younger kids and the potential impact on them -- something that no one seems to be concerned about. There was a time when people seemed to be concerned about the misogyny, homophobia, violence, and hyper sexulaitzation in the music, but I guess this has become normalized, and my views are anachronistic. @Pioneer1 I would much rather meet you in person than any of those women. I communicated with Tootie last year. Her book was on "The Tea," but for some reason we could not arrange to get her on camera. She was just too busy I guess.
  4. Hi Tiffany thanks for sharing information about the Urban Fiction Experience here. I really which you would have linked to the authors' websites or their AALBC pages instead of Facebook. I almost did not approve this post for that reason. Is the Urban Experience an annual event and does it have a website? If so please share the site's URL and I'll add the it to our Events Calendar.
  5. Troy Ummph. I remember Kim Coles was doing a little stand-up even BEFORE she had that show. If I were you I would have asked her to introduce you to the other sistaz on the show like Queen Latifah, Erika Alexander, and "Tootie". (I know she's Kim Fields but she'll always be Tootie to me....lol)
  6. Troy This society was BUILT on racism and racial heirarchy. To believe that those in charge would stop tracking race and considering the races of individuals means you believe they'd actually be willing to dismantle their entire system. The victims would have legal ground for being mistreated. All this focus on race being the motivator tends to reinforce the perceived, inherent, differences between people with different skin tones. Problems is....victims can CLAIM mistreatment but without the acknowledgement of race there is no basis for claims of racism nor would their be an ability to document PATTERNS of mistreatement. It's like claiming you were bitten by a dog in a society that doesn't believe dogs even exist. All you would have are individuals being mistreated in what appears to be unrelated cases instead of SYSTEMIC abuse (racism). Also, the acknowledgement of racial differences is beneficial to us as AfroAmericans also because we can focus on eating the proper foods and using the proper products that benefit people of African descent as those differences are acknowledged. When you claim that all people are of the same race, then you won't be able to explain why Caucasians can drink alcohol at the same rate that Native Americans drink it but the Native American community ends up being DEVASTATED by it while the Caucasian community does just fine.....but acknowledgement of racial differences explains this. When you claim that all people are of the same race then you won't be able to explain why certain soaps and lotions that are just fine for Caucasian skin and hair doesn't work or has a negative effect on AfroAmerican skin and hair.....as most Black women will confirm. .....but acknowledgement of racial differences explains this.

  11. Yesterday
  12. Quadriplegic David doc Robertson, author of Body and Soul, posts a new song every birthday as part of his celebration, especially since now he is 24 years past the projected life span after sustaining a crippling football injury in his senior year of high school. In addition to raising his spirits, singing also increases his lung capacity, which has probably prolonged his time here during which he has sworn to enjoy life to the fullest. Writing is his main pursuit, and he hopes that his readers enjoys his latest release, Body and Soul, as much as he did writing it. For this year's song, doc chose a the Nancy Wilson favorite, Save Your Love For Me.
  13. Hi Troy, Thanks a million for the shout out. I do have a website, www.daviddoc.com where everyone can see that I do more than write. I just finished the second season of my cooking show, Kitchen Independence, in which I tool around the kitchen in my electric. wheelchair. Unfortunately it aired only in the Coachella Valley, i.e., Palm Springs and the surrounding area. I hope you and all of the other members are having a good weekend!
  14. Weekend 8/24/2019 Borussia MochenGladBach in Germany- Gladbach had a small turnaround in terms of overall tactic this summer with Embolo coming in for Thorgin HAzard but in terms of attack it was a big question. Hazard was the heart of the attack. but, Embolo has found nice footing in gladbach. the season is early to decide if the coach gets the rotation correct. But, gladbach are running. Stefan Lainer goal https://www.weibo.com/7030963893/I3MkoojGM?from=page_1005057030963893_profile&wvr=6&mod=weibotime Breel Embolo goal https://www.weibo.com/7030963893/I3Mlt89hu?from=page_1005057030963893_profile&wvr=6&mod=weibotime Real Madrid in Spain- Navas is the beginning middle and end to the real madrid saga. I must admit, one pundit, Ray Hudson , admitted the strategic problem of Courtois whose best times as a keeper is on teams like atletico madrid or antonio conte's chelsea, that have a defensive base. Real Madrid's problem in keeper is simple. They fly in attack leaving space, thus any keeper for real madrdi must be fast to react, which is why Iker Cassilas or Keylor Navas are the best two goal keepers they had in the past fifteen combined seasons. Most of their other keepers are the modern common tall large space keepers who are great in the air or blocking shots but usually the worst when they need to react to sudden changes. And, in this case, courtois compared to navas in reaction is a gulf in quality. Karim Benzema Goal https://www.weibo.com/7030963893/I3MmGs1C5?from=page_1005057030963893_profile&wvr=6&mod=weibotime
  15. Chelsea Ladies and the history of english women in soccer- I qUote the article from Chelseafc women @Chelseafcw : "In 1972 Harry Batt, secretary of Chiltern Valley women’s club, predicted, ‘Women’s football will prove so popular that in 10 years clubs such as Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea, Manchester United and Leeds will be running women’s teams,’ and indeed, one of the new pioneer clubs was a Chelsea Ladies side." It is a nice history. I knew about the popularity of womens soccer. In the same way the Nat King Cole show was the best show on television, yet couldn't find a sponsor the networks could accept and was canceled. Womens soccer had a similar fate. In the end, the big problem I have to non white/male/christian/english speakers in modern humanity is they still don't realize their community needs to own. I have nothing against a man or white person or christian or english speaker owning a firm and providing opportunity to those who are not white or male or christian or english speaking. But, those who are not white or male or christian or english speaking NEED TO OWN THEIR OWN FIRMS and thus can empower their communities toward self suifficiency absent any need or input from whites or males or christians or english speakers.

  16. 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.

  18. Last week
  19. The first 24 hour Black News Channel is expected to launch November 15, 2019 @6:00 AM. The cable network is the brainchild of J.C. Watts, Jr., former U.S Representative (R-Oklahoma) now BNC chairman and Veteran Journalist Bob Brilliante who will serve as the cable network's CEO. BNC Newsroom management made their rounds at the National Association Black Journalists Job fair in Miami, FL earlier this month. The news channel, headquartered in Tallahassee, Fl, will broadcast to 33 million households nationwide with a major presence in Los Angeles, Atlanta and New York. ~MH You can read the release here: https://blacknewschannel.com/wp-content/uploads/BNC_NABJ-Press-Release_2019.pdf
  20. Love to go but I'm on the other side of the pond. Damn.
  21. @David doc Robertson, if you have a website, please share it.
  22. Ai Kesen- Elkeson is becoming Ai Kesen to play for china is the beginning. Paulo freitas @Cynegeticus shared the news. The connection brasilian players have to that part of asia is not little. Brasilian players are long standing stalwarts in japan. I wish him well and expect with the money china offers he will not be alone.

  23. Here is a good interview between Jenn Baker of MiP (Minorities in Publishing) and Tracy Sherrod from Amistad. Check out some of the titles published by Amistad on AALBC.
  24. I understand. This is evidenced by my own experience and the experiences related by Pioneer. However, what I think you are failing to consider is, kids today have access to so much more sexually explicit content than ever before. This video, while a great display of Black athleticism and beauty, is also overtly sexual. Something Pioneer describes as natural behavior (like polygamy) and you simply say is beautiful without really addressing the sexual nature of the video -- almost as if it were not there or did not matter. Sure, you and I are not affected by this video -- we have a content, we've been on Earth for over half a century and have seen a lot. What I question is the impact of all of this on our youth. I have not seen this, but I take you word for it. Think about the scenario in which someone takes out their cell phone to record a gang rape and THEN put it on social media. What type of society do we have were tech firms profit off of motivating people to share gang rapes... this is so f-cked up I don't even know where to begin. @Pioneer1 I saw Kim last year and told her I knew Mel. She immediately whipped out a photo of her and Mel, from back in the day :-) I took a photo of Kim's cell phone and shared it with Mel. I thought I posted it here, but I guess I did not.
  25. @Pioneer1 "racism" is the problem, not the false idea of different so called races. I was previously unaware of Jared Taylor. The video of the "debate" between Jared and Tariq Nasheed was hard to watch because Jared made Tariq look silly (I could not watch the whole video if there is a part in which Tariq does better please share the timestamp). On another level, Jared is using Tariq to elevate his own prominence by easily dispatching with him. Jared would have much more difficulty with a scholar like Cornel West or even something who has studied the subject more deeply like Ta Nehisi Coates. Jared is potentially very dangerous. Still I think we should get rid of tracking race in this country too. Your argument that: Again, this makes little sense. The victims would have legal ground for being mistreated. All this focus on race being the motivator tends to reinforce the perceived, inherent, differences between people with different skin tones.
  26. I'll probably attend this event Tara -- thanks.
