  1. Yesterday
  2. Every two months I post a list of our bestselling books. It is typically the most popular item in AALBC’s monthly newsletter and website in general. Here is a link to our March/April 2019 bestselling books. This is not the same list of books that I report to the New York Times (as most of these titles were sold through affiliate programs). Only the books I sell directly are reported to the NY Times.

  4. The Moon is moving away from the earth. At some point we will no longer have eclipses. Things change.
  5. Last week
  6. 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
  7. Is this a serious question to me? Don't be silly 🙂 Besides @Chevdove never asserted that.
  8. @Pioneer1 yes I too remember the jet beauties -- every red blooded Black man does. Few can recall something from Ebony with the same level of fondness. But man any print publication is hard keep afloat today. Who knows what I would really do...
  9. Jesus and the Apostles are believed to have spoken Aramaic, and Aramaic-language translations (Targums) of the Old Testament circulated. Aramaic continued in wide use until about 650 CE, when it was supplanted by Arabic.
  10. Chev I can still remember as a kid going out with my family to Sunday dinners (often after church) to different Soul Food restaurants around the city. There were so many to choose from. My father would take us to different ones and you didn't have to worry about people cussing, fighting, or act a fool around you and your family. In many AfroAmerican communities today there are no or very few actual "sit down" restaurants PERIOD whether you're talking about Soul Food, Chinese, or fast food. Most of them are designed for you to walk in or drive up, place your order and pay, get the food, and LEAVE. The message they're sending the customers is: Get your shit and get up out of here.....Lol. Most of the sit down and relax, customer service oriented restaurants today are only the fancy restaurants like Ruth Chris. I think most AfroAmerican youth (25 and under) are missing out on a LOT of amenities that used to be taken for granted in our culture. Most of them don't know what it's like to go to a Black establishment and get waited on by Black people with a smile and eat food cooked with love from ANOTHER Black person. I still remember the old greasy spoons in Detroit that were Black owned and Black ran. Early in the morning as early as 6am or 7am Black folks heading to work in the morning would stop in these joints for a full breakfast of grits, eggs, coffee, pancakes, ect.....and meet up with eachother. I'm getting hungry just THINKING about them! I don't know if you remember but there was movie back in the 80s called the BLUES BROTHERS in which Aretha Franklin portrayed a waitress in a greasy spoon while performing the song "You better think". I remember Black waitresses like that who would call everybody "baby" and put a lot of SOUL in serving their customers. You don't see that today. You see Black youth walking around eating pizza or chili fries most likely made by someone who does NOT look like them or give a damn about them.
  11. Are you telling me that in the scientific community today moons and planets are considered STARS? That would be amazing because this is the first time I'm hearing this.
  12. Mel this is exactly how I felt - and see, you did understand. Some how I had a feeling you knew exactly why I responded the way I did! And yes, I understand why it struck you as irrational - because "love" is irrational and to actually have love for all living things equally is probably something you don’t come across on a daily basis. It wasn't that hard to figure out, you pretty much said it plainly. When you say "love for all things equally" I don't NECESSARILY consider that statement irrational because I realize the word "love" is just one English word that is used to describe MULTIPLE different types of feelings, many of which aren't even related to eachother. I think Greek attempts to separate it with words like "agape" and "eros" ect.... I would guess that the feeling you're calling "love" that you feel equally for everything is a deep caring type of feeling which is a separate feeling than what you have for your children and both of those feelings are different than the type of feeling you have for a lover or spouse....but most people will call all of it "love" for lack of a better term in English.
  13. @Pioneer1 That's Powerful!-- Brother!
  14. @Pioneer1 I read this the other day and been wanting to comment! I am just popping in for a little today--too busy-- But I tell you, I feel you on this one!!! I have a lot to say about this! My family gives me a hard time being from the north, but I was indoctrinated on my culture when I was young so, I love soul food, and have become frustrated for not being able to find a 'sit down' place near by, that really, really, really serves SOUL FOOD!
  15. @Pioneer1 I have answered your question by addressing 'THE ROMAN EMPIRE' times when this TRIPLE CONJUNCTION was written to have occurred. I wrote that other ancient civilizations have recorded this TRIPLE CONJUNCTION of Jupiter, Mars and Saturn, and therefore, regarding THE ROMAN EMPIRE, most people accept that this TRIPLE CONJUNCTION marks history about the Romans, but not about the Hebrews or Jesus. Regarding, THE ROMAN EMPIRE, many other civiilizations acknowledge their leaders existed and their government existed, but for some reason, Black people don't doubt this, but however, they doubt that some angry indigenous Negroes became hostile about being TAXED by the Romans and etc. BLack people don't doubt the life of Julius Caesar or Cleopatra, but they dismiss the history of the Hebrews and etc. So, yes, it comes donw to 'belief' and being conditioned by our education system to believe in the Romans and 'White Jesus' but pretty much, --that's it! The idea that the Romans had Negro people that opposed their system is completely refuted by most Black people today, like youself. The idea that Jesus could have been a Negro that walked 'only' amongst his own people is rejected by most Black people today, IMO because we visualize what we are trained to view.
  16. http://curious.astro.cornell.edu/observational-astronomy/160-our-solar-system/the-earth/seasons/74-will-the-seasons-change-due-to-precession-intermediate Due to precession, the Earth's axial tilt slowly changes over time. As time progresses, the locations on the Earth's orbit at which equinoxes and solstices occur will change. @Pioneer1
  17. @Pioneer1 LOL, I explained it in detail, in scientific terminology, and therefore, I suppose this as pect is beyond you understanding for now. I explained that planetariums across the world, college planetariums feature this TRIPLE CONJUNCTION that I wrote about, LOL, but you are not understanding. You do not understand how even today, stars are used for travel; how ancient indians and sailors used certain stars to trek! LOL! There is no such phenomena of any star 'coming down to erath-star'!!! LOL Stars do not have to 'COME DOWN' to be able to use their movements in order to make maps, or make sea expeditions. Pioneer, the ancient man knew about 'the composition of a compass' and had instruments as well.
  18. @Delano I agree in that "Beth" means "house" although, I did not know from which language! Yes, I alos agree and have read that in Hebrew each letter has a numeric value. Thank you! I read your post and all of that is interesting. And I hope to better understand 'Aramic' basis of scriptures and etc. @Pioneer1 You are so wrong! I have a degree in science and have taught science. The word 'STAR' means 'a planet'! The word 'STAR' also means 'THE SUN' in the scientific world! A 'star' is the definition of 'the sun', 'the moon', the MOVING STAR [ie planets], 'COMET' and etc! PLANETS are defined today and in the distant past as being MOVING STARS. The moon is defined to be 'A SATELLITE STAR' ... This has always been the scientific language! There are so, so, som many distinct types of stars in the universe and various ones have a distinct defintion! I guess one way to maybe correlate the term 'STAR' could be like a word 'HUMAN' or 'HOMO SAPIEN'; in that there are many different adjectives to define humans, some are 'primitive homo sapiens', some are called 'Home Erectus', some are called 'modern homo sapiens', some are specifically defined as being European, or African, or etc.... Even the scriptures define the term 'STAR' as meaning various types of bodies in the universe with various distinctions. This is a common understanding in the science world in tht MOVING STARS is another term for PLANETS!!!
  19. @Pioneer1 this is exactly how I felt - and see, you did understand. Some how I had a feeling you knew exactly why I responded the way I did! And yes, I understand why it struck you as irrational - because “love” is irrational and to actually have love for all living things equally is probably something you don’t come across on a daily basis. Now, before you throw my children in the mix - I also have an uber irrational “LOVE” for them but if I were to think it through ... it would be because they came from me... and there’s no greater love, I suppose than one who you’d lay down your life for..so yeah, my babies are on a whole different astral plane... one that even I can’t comprehend. Not at all! There are a lot of smart people. I don’t think it suits me. I’m curious and i keep digging like a dog looking for a bone. Someone might say “he’s hungry” ... but in most cases that’s not true—-The pooch is looking for his “treasure”. My definition of “smart” ? I like what you’ve said @Delano “pedigree” - a “person of letters” is my definition of smart. People who know enough to get the task completed by an agreed upon standard.
  20. Mel   Out of all the things I wrote correcting Troy you chose to focus on "people" - why is that? It stood out for me because all the other reasons you gave for objecting to how he described you seemed rational (despite my not agreeing with your objections to a couple of them), but your objection to being described as "loving people" and declaring that you don't.....only to turn around and describe this as being too reductionist and that you actually love ALL living things seemed a bit irrational. I can understand your objecting to it if he said outright or implied that this love was reduced to ONLY people instead of all living things, but this was neither said nor implied. It just wasn't expansive enough to your liking. Imagine walking into a pet shop and asking an employee, "Since you work well with dogs, could you give me the best advice on how to train mine?" ....and they rebuke you by saying. "Actually I DON'T work well with dogs, I work well with ALL animals!" Perhaps it was just the wording. Maybe if you had added a "just" in your objection it would have seemed more rational TO ME. For example: "I don't JUST love people.....I love all things" Out of curiosity....... Although you didn't say it outright, do you think for a man to call you smart is a bit "condescending" ? Do you take that compliment from a MAN the same way a Black person would take it from a White who called them "articulate"?
  21. Chev That also means that some of our own people are a part of our self destruction for this cause of White Supremacy and so, what do we do about that!? You're abolutely right. Infact a LARGE PORTION of our people are guilty of self destruction in the community. What has worked for me and most other AfroAmericans I know who seek to improve themselves is to SEPARATE ourselves from the self-destructive elements. When I say seperate I'm talking both physically (moving away from and avoiding known trouble makers) as well as separating ourselves mentally and culturally (not listening to self destructive music, engaging in self destructive behavior, or watching movies that promote crime and murder in the Black community....Empire comes to mind) and seeking the company of those of like minds so that we can build among eachother. Ideally, the goal should be to CLEAN UP the community and rid it of those criminals and savages who engage in grossly self destructive behaviors like gang banging, pedophilia, rape, and theft. The problem is the Caucasians in Law Enforcement often times protects those who are engaging in this behavior in our communities or keeps it contained in AfroAmerican communities in an attempt to keep it out of theirs. They actually enable most of the bullshit you see going on in Black neighborhoods. If it were totally up to us without any outside intervention I believe decent AfroAmericans would have organized and ran out the drug dealers, murderers, and pedophile from our community a LONG time ago.
  22. “Smart is not how I would describe myself.” “ I'm curious ...that may appear to be passion but it's more of an obsession“ “i don't have to think deeply” Sooooo... Out of all the things I wrote correcting Troy you chose to focus on “people” - why is that?
  23. Out of all that he said to you I'm focused on the "love for people" portion of his statement because I was a bit puzzled for the reason you gave for objecting to it. Is accuracy the issue here, or specificity? It seems to me that his statement was not incorrect, but your issue with it was that it was too narrowly focused or "reduced". BTW, I prefer a healthy balance of compliments-accuracy-criticizm. Too much of either without enough of the other usually doesn't lead to the best results.
