  4. Not being able to make enough money to independently support yourself involves so many extenuating circumstances that its ridiculous to make the above statement. During The Depression people from all walks of life including highly qualified and educated ones were not able to make enough money to live independently. How can you not take the economy and the stability of the government or even the health of a well educated person into consideration when making such assertions? You want to dumb down life. What your argument amounts to is that educated people who use their information to think creatively are to blame for uneducated people who are too ignorant to think in the abstract. You refuse to consider that education is one of the things that separates the winner peer groups from the loser peer groups in the arena of success.
  5. The writer Neil Gaiman also wants to do the Anansi stories as a stand-alone. And has made it clear that the lead has to be Black. Hollywood suggested a white lead.
  6. Yes an opponent need not be an enemy. Opponent Adversary Nemesis are not quite the same
  7. My input in readily available for the choices you make. You know i'm better at responding than initiating. 😉 I wonder myself what my final thoughts will be on GOT, whose characters have become like friends - and enemies to me. I have my own theory of how it all will end but i hesitate to reveal it. Daenarys is my favorite character, naturally. A strong woman. @DelanoI have access to American Gods because i have Starz but i've never watched it... Maybe i'll check it out. As for me needing a worthy opponent, can a worthy opponent also be a soul mate? 😮
  8. Isn't the hook of this comedy that the "little girl" character is actually a grown woman who through some fluke has suddenly become trapped in a 14 year old's body? The kid playing this role is a very precocious young lady who is a co-producer of the movie and for whom it is a showcase to introduce her acting skills. This film is a spoof not to be taken seriously.
  9. Have you ever lived in or near Chicago or Atlanta? Here's your opportunity to correct me for basing my conclusions on the things you stated with such inflated confidence.
  10. Troy This is a major film and it's getting heavy endorsement and advertisement. I think you're taking this too lightly or not looking into the implications of it deeply enough. With all of the uproar and hell being raised about R Kelly and Elijah Muhammad's interactions with girls and young ladies..... Now some of these same people who were making the most noise are now silent over a film that in a back handed way seems to sexualize a 14 year old girl and make it seem as if she has the hots for a grown White man. Again, what kind of messages are they putting into the minds of young Black girls depicting another young Black girls who can be seen over and over again giving a grown White man "bedroom eyes" and overtly flirting with him? Who's sick ass fantasy is this? Did Issa Rae think this was cute?
  11. Oh, I haven't??? Ok....well.....thank you for correcting me on MY residential history, lol.
  12. Troy I'm not sure what YOUR point is, but MY points remains the same that whether you are a professor with a Doctorate or a floor mopper who doesn't even have a GED.......if you aren't making enough money to live independently and support yourself YOU ARE NOT EDUCATED. And again, the first priority a person should have is the ability to sustain themselves and their family and obviously since you and others are complaining about the wages at CU of NY being inadequate....whether or not they are in actual, relative, or hyperbolic poverty is irrelevant. The fact is they aren't earning the wages they'd like to earn or even NEED to earn to make a decent living.
  13. Haven't seen it yet but from the little research I've done on it already, I don't like it. Just more racist stereotypes hidden (and not so hidden) in well planned acting and directing. You got a Black man called Mr. Nancy (short for Anansi but still a woman's name) in a clown suit gritting his teeth and looking crazy. He's known as a "trickster" And another Black man named Shadow Moon who is an ex-convict. I don't give a damn how well you dress it up or how good the acting is...... It's just more stereotypes of Black people acting stupid, crazy, and criminal while the White characters are running the show. Poison will still harm you regardles of how great the food it's slipped in tastes.
  14. 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 even Chevdove is on here posting stories about how "beautiful" White men with golden hair (if that's what you want to call beautiful) are coming to her rescue and comparing them to and calling these White men 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.
  15. If you search American Gods and Nancy. Something should come up.
  16. Yeah these videos are not available to view in the US. I'll need to use a VPN to watch them. But I will :-)
  17. @Chevdove What, don't you cosign the bit about Instagram?
  18. @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.
  19. 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?

  22. 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

  24. "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. 😖
  25. American Gods liked both the book and the series.
