  2. 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.
  3. 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!

  5. 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.

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
  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. Last week
  10. 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
  11. Love to go but I'm on the other side of the pond. Damn.
  12. @David doc Robertson, if you have a website, please share it.
  13. 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.

  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. @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.
  17. I'll probably attend this event Tara -- thanks.
  18. Hi All! On September 10th from 6-7pm, Quincy Troupe will be leading an artist talk at Madison Square Park on the current installation City in the Grass by Leonardo Drew. The artist will be present as well to engage in conversation with Quincy Troupe. All are invited to join in the discussion.

  19. Extraordinary Women in Publishing a Conversation Hosted by Tori. Tracy Sherrod, the editorial director of Amistad; Yona Deshommes, Associate Director of Publicity at Atria Books; and Cherise Fisher, a literary agent at Wendy Sherman Associates Literary Management. All of these Sisters are have been supportive of AALBC for years and provide keen insight into the publishing industry
  20. I decided to use the industry standard BISAC codes to compile my Top Lists across various categories. This will allow me to programmatically compile a very large number of lists on a variety of topic lists of books. As books win awards, obtain critical acclaim, make AALBC's best sellers lists, I'll compile this data and more into a dynamically generated and unbiased "Top Ten List." Basically I'll be parsing my list of Most Critically Acclaimed Books by their respective BISAC categories.
  21. Pioneer1 Hmmm,you may have a point there. But as I said,as with the group Stand Up to Racism, when they appear on the street, the crowd is extremely diverse. Perhaps this is due to the fact that the main focus is Islamphobia. Many Muslims do turn out for this,particularly when opposing far right groups. Thankfully violence doesn't occur that often and the two sides are often kept apart .
  22. 😆 @Pioneer1 Yes Kim Coles also graduated from Brooklyn Tech with me and Troy. Best. High. School. Ever. And yes - haven't you noticed we fight about and agree with each other on the topics dealing with the subject of "Social Engineering"... It's as if you and I both believe that we humans are consistently being programmed and hacked to behave a certain way. Sexuality goes right to the top of the social engineering ! Early Anglos found out how to harness and supress sensuality, sexuality and sensuosity and use it to create super soldiers /killing machines . In short, suppress sexuality you kill creativity and then you can create monsters. @Troy In a way, I agree but how we use our experiences is what's at odds. As a woman, I learned sexual boundaries in the safety of my parents home. When you are under a watchful eye of your caregivers - they let things go but so far. We've seen on social media where at some of parties teenaged boys and girls have gotten drunk and some boys have gone as far as gang raped girls. A lot of times these parties were not chaperoned - and what's worse those children didn't learn boundaries and popped like corks under pressure. Now the girls are scarred -and the boys have to register as sexual offenders for the rest of their life. My friends and I played RCK (run catch and kiss)- as young as 11... by the time we were teens - we knew boundaries. Boys knew sexual contact in varying degrees wasn't off limits because girls liked it too - but we all learned no means no. As society progressed - I guess some parents didn't have time for children anymore. But when I was growing up we all had parents to consult in the absence of our own (for the moment). It did take a village. Most of the kids I grew up with - played kissing games, bump and grinding when we were teenagers, and none of us ended up as sexual predators. When the child learns how to exercise their personal agency it will later serve them as adults. My body and persona doesn't belong to my parents - it's mine. My children's bodies doesn't belong to me or their dad. They learned this from the time they were toddlers. While they were under our care we had to let them determine their boundaries or they would never learn. Or worse, learn when they were older. If you wonder why some women exist in abusive relationships while some women NEVER experience that life;-it's all due to learning. We all have to learn - it just depends on when.
  23. Corinthians Futebol Feminino- @SCCPFutFeminino have a 28 straight win record in all competitions, the longest for any club, mens or womens. Their last non win was a lose against my Seirenes, Santos women. Congratulations to O timao, they rebooted their program after some faltering. Santos , like Arsenal in england , has led but has been unable to keep up with more financially able or ambitious clubs into the womens game come about. They are being led by Millene @millenefernandes_ article https://www.fifa.com/news/corinthians-women-set-new-world-record referral https://twitter.com/FIFAWWC/status/1164340659580493825
  24. Troy Oh, that's Jared Taylor. I could have told you about him. He's one of the foremost spokespersons for the moder Caucasian racists today exactly BECAUSE of his well spoken, calm, and charismatic demeanor. Infact Tariq Nasheed interviews him many times and they even had a debate. You ask do I understand how a belief in race can be so destructive, but I ask you do you realize how e NOT believing and acknowledging the truth about race can be even MORE destructive? And I mean literally! Do you realize that in Latin America in places like Mexico, Dominican Republic, Bolivia, and other nations in South and Cental America the governments don't acknowledge the racial differences of it's citizens? All Mexicans are considered the same race despite their color. All Bolivians are considered the same despite their shade. You say this is marvelous and beautiful! The problem is Black Mexicans and Black Bolivians are HEAVILY discriminated against, beaten, jailed, and mistreated by the White and lighter skinned people of their nations and because "races" doesn't exists officially they can't even call it racism. The victims have no legal grounds in which to claim discrimination because these governments don't recognize them as being of a different race than their attacker. As for the first video..... Neely Fuller says that one of the biggest tools that White Supremists use is CONFUSION. As usual, the slick talking Jared Taylor is confusion RACE with NATIONALITY in order to confuse the audience. He talks about "American" as if it were a race and uses the terms "white" and "American" interchangeably in order to associate in the audiences' minds that American MEANS White. He also consistently says "America" and only rarely uses the correct term for this nation which is the "United States". Confusion has been weaponized today, and this is why a person must not only have an analytical mind in order to decipher and parce words in order to NOT be confused and deceived, but must also have a proper grasp of world history. As for your second video........... I said in another thread that Black folks were making rap videos and even had The Wire talking about how violent and ghetto Baltimore was; so they shouldn't be so surprised when Trump decides to back them up and bear witness to what THEY say about their own city. Negroes need to start using more common sense and think ahead before they start glorifying and taking pride in foolishness. Don't brag about how violent and crazy your community is and then get angry if a White man comes along and agrees with you! On a lighter note. Since squirrels are "rodents" too and plenty of them as well as beavers can be seen roaming around Washington D.C.....someone should inform Trump that those who lived in "rodent infested" cities themselves shouldn't throw stones at others, lol.
  25. The sister club- I quote chris phillips the manager of London City Lionesses :"We want to show people that the time is now right that a women’s football club can be a women’s football club and it doesn’t have to be – and I use this term whether it’s politically correct or not – the annoying sister of a men’s club. If you speak to about 80% of clubs out there, they’re not happy with the relationship with the men’s team.”" I am a fan of Rivers Angels @Rivers_Angels BRescia calcio femminile @BresciaCF and Turbine potsdam @Turbine_Potsdam , now I will not deny I love Olympique Lyonnais feminin, Atletico Madrid feminine, Chelsea football club ladies, Gladbach Fraun, Santos Feminino, Botafogo feminino. I support them constantly. But, I will always have a special place in my heart for Rivers Angels/Die Turbinen/Leonessa cause as womens clubs they have faced serious challenges. Rivers Angels is in one of the only few womens leagues in CAF that has some semblance of existence, I did not say paid athletic quality , or heavy investment, merely existence. Turbine potsdam small owners were once champions of UEFA. But then came the sister clubs in germany but die turbinen survive in the table. Lastly, but not leastly, BRescia was multiple champion of Italy and brewed most of the most well known players for juventus women or ac milan. But their organization was bullied into a lesser league where they keep up the fight. It is hard in the modern financial environment for a womens team to survive. Ask the teams of the National womens soccer league in the usa. For all the advertisement to the usa womens national team or their multiple world cup wins or high profile players. They don't attract sponsors as easily as one would think, ala the death of boston breakers , or prior attempts at a first tier team in the usa. I quote the article again: "“It’s all well and good for people to bang on about equality but it has to be more than words,” says Phillips. “Little things like giving all the girls private medical care. I can’t have a player who’s injured and waiting six months on the NHS to receive an MRI scan and then another six months for surgery, then we’ve lost a player for a year there." That quote lead to a good point, that I need investigative journalism to answer. How many female soccer players recover from injuries? I know Amel Majri side many other Olympique lyonnais players have injuries and recover well, including alex morgan during her time, but I will love to know the statistics of recovery for female soccer players after major injuries. The article for me was historically untrue in one way. I quote: "“With it being the first club to be fully separate is pretty unique,” says the full-back Leanne Cowan." The london bees and other clubs that are no longer in existence, were womens only clubs,and existed before the sister club era hit uefa. Those early clubs aren't mentioned enough, many like bad neuernahr in germany are gone and forgotten in this internet age, but kept womens soccer alive in underrated ways. I penultimate with the title in the article , equality has to be more than words. I end with the truth, equality has to be based on ownership. Womens clubs must be owned on their own. Article https://www.theguardian.com/football/2019/aug/18/london-city-lionesses-millwall-womens-football referral https://twitter.com/Thetenner10/status/1163546266736975872
  26. Troy "Harm" many not be the right word. So I can't answer your question as posed. Sure you can, your answer was actually "no"...lol. Because nothing in this video harms children in any way. It may make ADULTS feel uncomfortable if they are around children when it comes on, much like frank sex talk makes parents uncomfortable when their children (of any age) are around....when that same talk wouldn't bother either if they were by themselves. And it all originates from people NOT having honest and frank talks about REAL sexuality to begin with, but instead hiding or ignoring it....suppressing it. And as is often the case, when something is suppressed it comes out with much force and discomfort from being kept into such an unnatural state. dunno man, I can only imagine what the average teenage boy wants to do after seeing this video I got news for you my brutha, the average teenage boy DOESN'T NEED videos like this to get him going....lol. When I was a teenager my erections WORK ME UP like an alarm clock.   Look, scantily clad women gyrating in this manner were around when I was a teen too, but you had to go to a strip club to see this stuff. Now come on man, you grew up in Harlem in the late 60s and 70s! Are you telling me all those pictures I saw of prostitutes on the street half naked and every day girls walking around in miniskirts, halter tops, sting tops, and hot pants, braless, ect....was just on television? You didn't see women walking around shaking what their mama gave them in REAL life? I know when I was a kid growing up in the Midwest in the 70s and 80s when it got hot women and girls were wearing clothes about as skimpy as what you see in that video.   Yes I remember doing the "Freak," but we were not filiming it and watching it constantly. Did you think the freak was appropriate? I know at least one guy that ejaculated while freaking   So while I don't disagree with anything you wrote Mel, I find it hard to believe you would host a party where your teenage daughters were dressed and dancing like that. Would you you let them "freak" or dance "rub-a-dub style" in the basement with the lights off? @Pioneer1 if you are familiar with those dance styles, same question 1. When I was coming up we were doing the same thing but we called it "grinding". White folks called it "dry humping". All it was was having as something as close to sex as you can with your clothes on. 2 . I did grind on a lot of females at parties and clubs and altough I don't remember "busting" in my pants, most of the time I DID feel a little "pre-cum" come out. I'll stop right there rather than get too graphic....lol. 3. Not only did we do this as teenagers but now that I think on it even back in elementary school at 7 and 8 we used to chase girls around getting out "squeeze" on all over them. We called it "hide and go get some". What you're seeing in the video as well as what you saw growing up is African youth behaving the way we NORMALLY behave when nature is allowed to take it's course. Before Caucasians came and influenced our thinking with their prudish anti-sexual religions and philosophies most African and Dravidian societies had "sex cults" where the entire community would come out to have sex with eachother in mass.....nothing to be ashamed of. You can read in the Bible where the Israelites (Caucasians) tried to stamp it out in the different lands they conquered. 4. To answer your question: No. As open minded as I am about the idea, no I probably wouldn't let my teenage daughter do it. Why not? Irrational male over protectiveness. But my decision is an emotional decision, not a logical one. You were a gymnast? I bet you were strong as hell! I've met a few male gymasts and them cats had muscles like wire cables.   Mel The dancing in this video is beautiful! And look at all those chocolate young women and men!~ They are beautiful! Not only do I agree with you but I absolutly LOVE seeing attractive and physically fit AfroAmericans be sensual and express their sexuality. I'd much rather see them do THIS than fighting and pulling guns on eachother. I'lll promote Black on Black love over Black on Black violence any day.   Alright.....you've been agreeing with me so much lately I'm getting suspicious! What are you up too....lol. BTW...when you say "Kim Coles" do you mean you went to school with Kim Coles the actress from Living Singles?
