  1. @KENNETH Abortion has always been a luke warm issue in the black community because an unplanned pregnancy that results in bringing a baby into an unstable environment is something that dates back to slavery days, and is an experience imprinted on the black psyche, which instinctively adjusts to adverse situations. So having a baby is something many black females just take in their stride... Society doesn't seem to frown on this. Nor is there any concern emanating from the conservative ranks of latter day slave masters masquerading as pro-lifers about the plight of such children. There is, however, a tendency among certain blacks to be lax in critical thinking when it comes to this issue. The situation isn't exclusively about abortion; it's about control. Those with the authority to make a woman have a baby, can also force her to not have a baby. The only person who has the right to exercise control over a woman's body is the woman, herself! Black people should be very leery about laws that intrude on an individual's personal choices. These insidious bans can be a gateway to enforcing other restrictions.

  2. Regardless of how the media tried to criminalize the victim, George Floyd did not deserve to be murdered. While George Floyd may not have set out to become a martyr, his murder put a bullseye on American police brutality. In fact, I think George Floyd's execution date should be another federal holiday to commemorate all of our brothas and sistas wrongfully murdered by race soldiers.

  3. Field & Track Women—Hairstyles I just want to reflect on something else today because I am weary of all of depressing media hype about mass shootings and killing Black people. So, I want to share something about spectator about spectator sports, and something that I like to watch that inspires me to be active and set goals for getting better physical, mental and emotional health. The competition has begun! A few days ago, the recent track and field meets have showed up on my channel and I am amazed at these awesome and powerful beauties. And at first glance, it may not seem to be the main focus, however recently, what seems obvious to me would be the significant differences in the hairstyles displayed of some of the top Black female athletes from the recent past. Is this a brief trend? In the past few widely internationally broadcasted events, some athletes on the starting lineup were pictured with flamboyant and brightly colored or long, blonde, and bone-straight hairstyles. Obviously, it was done so to make a statement just as in the past some athletes donned unique and ‘signature’ uniforms and I am reminded of the late and incredible Flo Jo. But so far, in the few competitions that have occurred recently no one has started the line up as in the past events. My all-time favorite Track and field Olympian, Shelley-Ann Fraser-Pryce, whose other devotion, her hair salon back in Jamaica, stepped out recently with on the field with a lovely dark and braided hairstyle. Shelley-Ann Frase-Pryce No matter though, she looks adorable and so elegant in whatever style she has worn, IMO. Another ‘new’ world favorite athlete, Elaine Thompson-Herah has seemingly burst onto the world scene out of nowhere and now has become a household name for many. She steps onto the field with the most lovely and classy type hairstyles recently but, for me it’s her glow and her smile that shows her beauty. Elaine Thompson-Herah And to my surprise, our own American athlete stepped out with a beautiful appearance, Sha’Carri Richardson. She already wins hands down on being a beauty anyway though, but she also came back on the field with a blast. Richardson came in second behind Thompson-Herah in one of her races. Sha'Carri Richardson These recent and awesome women of the track and field today, have inspired me to contemplate and do more research history about how Black African women have had to deal with so much controversy over our hair. And what new stories I have found! But as for now, due to so much talent today and the new winners, it gives me great inspiration to add some more new favorites to my list and to share. Some of these athletes have consistently dominated their race so well, that it can be expected that they will be celebrated for a long time. Like Shelley-Ann Fraser-Pryce who has become a legend of all times, however, there are some new wonders. Of course, my other all-time past favorite also competed recently, Allyson Felix, and it was said that this would be her last time. But now, there are a few more lovely superwomen to cheer on such as that pretty girl, Britain’s Dina Asher-Smith, the lovely Swiss’ Mujinga Kambundji, Jamaica’s doll Shericka Jackson, our lovely New Jersey lady Athing Mu and the smart beauty who just dominated her race, Gabby Thomas and more. Ironically for me too, would be that although the past hairstyles have been eye-catching, what seems more amazing would be the age of some of these athletes who have dominated and won the foot race. This has given me the most inspiration to believe that I can get up and do something healthier to combat my health problems today. In my middle age though, I sometimes look back in time when I was younger and imagine myself sprinting that fast, but at the end of my dream I always have this re-occurring imagery of me coming through the finish line with a complete horrendous falling to the ground with a horrible horse-like uncontrollable breathing and inevitably ankle-rolling into a blundering crash with my arms flinging wildly and hitting the ground first with one knee and then enduring a complete earth-smacking, elbow-knee roll, covering a large area before finally coming to a miserable end. This fear sort of reminds me of a time when, as a gymnast, my coach believed that I was a sprinter and so, she one day abruptly surprised me and moved the springboard far away from the horse and told me to sprint into my vault. I panicked. I was so angry at her and imagined that I was going to crash into that horse and kill myself. I pulled if off successfully to my shock and surprise. But now, I have also considered being inspired by an older group of athletes who run the marathon too. Nevertheless, the older track and field stars deserves the glory that they have earned! Allyson Felix not only gave birth, but she stepped onto the field at the age of 36. And incredibly all of the women trailed far behind the Jamaican wonder Shelley-Ann Fraser-Pryce who stepped up to the challenge at the age of 35 and after she also gave birth recently. But now, I have a new favorite that stepped onto the field at the age of 29 and some sports experts believe that she stands to improve her time. This amazing PEARL recently came in close behind her American teammate, Sha’Carri Richardson and in another recent race, she stayed in second place behind Fraser-Pryce until the last moment, Jenna Frandini. When I think about this beauty, I think about Delano who also has some pearls in his life. Jenna Frandini replaced Richardson in the Tokyo 4X 100m relay and led our U.S. team to claim the silver. Recently, Frandini clocked in at 10.75 in a 100m race. It’s impossible not to watch her run over and over and over again and not spring up as she approaches the finish line. Like Elaine Thompson-Herah, it seems as if Jenna Frandini might become another household name. So I would love to share some brief clips and videos of my inspirations.

  4. I usually block/mute bots in black face on twitter because they are easy to spot. They are easy to spot on AALBC too because they spew the same rhetoric as the " the greys" trying to claim supremacy. Unfortunately there are so few of us that participate in these discussions, I feel like we're playing a game of whack a mole when they pop up. Anyway, this is an oldie but goodie report from Black Enterprise on the rise of blackface bots

  5. Google Ads Has anyone noticed that the Google ads are gone? If found them increasingly intrusive and irritating. I've also reduced the number ads running throughout the rest of the site. My Google ad revenue is down substantially, but it is worth it, at least for now. Basically, I let Google put ads anywhere they wanted and they really took advantage of the site. They would have full screen ads pop up as you went from one page to the next, The would out two or three ads (often the same ones) right in the middle text you are trying to read. If I put ads on my site, the way Google inserted them, Google would bury their search results, for providing a bad experience to visitors. Amazon Links For several years now I have been anti-Amazon going as far as dropping virtually all links to Amazon's site. However, I have decided to link to Amazon's Kindle store to sell ebooks. I used an alternative vendor to sell eBooks, but the problem is no one buys ebooks from the vendor's site. Amazon has created an effective monopoly on eBooks. So rather than not sell eBooks I have decided to just link to where people will go anyway. I actually don't like this, but it is a pragmatic decision that I hope I do not end up regretting. I really have no choice today if I want to profit off the sale of eBooks. As always, I'm open to comments.

  6. Baby Girl got her father shook! We know who Emily is bringing home for dinner once she's old enough. And what she saw is exactly what the rest of the world sees - and FEARS. So, let's flip the script here and recognize the power of the Black man. When a Black man speaks, everyone listens. I don't even know if we're aware of it. But I saw three women, powerhouses in publishing, all shut up when Troy, the only black person on the WSJ panel, started speaking. Image consultant and multimillionaire Kevin Samuels passed away last month and is still trending on Twitter. Women will take to the streets and protest a state-sanctioned execution of a Black man. Every time. If the Supreme Court overturns Roe, these legislators better prepare for all the "beige" babies about to come into the world. We already know - we already see it. Even privileged women select "chocolate." Kardashians. And I get it… Black women with much less will go into debt to give birth to and raise a black man's child by any means necessary. I couldn't figure out why there's been a lot of derogatory talk on this forum about Black Men lately… One dude even wrote he couldn't believe Black women could be so stupid for loving Black Men. But it couldn't be more evident through all the propaganda, rhetoric, hate, and jealousy. Emily got it right.

  8. I wish the 'right-to-lifers" would be willing to exert the same energy and passion to preserving the lives of those who have actually been born. Support for quality universal health care would be a good start. To answer your question directly, anything that is bad for American people in general is almost always worse for Black people in particular. That said, this decision transcends race. It effects everyone.

  11. From youtube: Iddris Sandu discusses his journey from a young aspiring engineer to a technologist, as well as the role of technology as an agent for sustainable change in the Black Lives Matter movement (in the US, the diaspora, and across the continent of Africa). Paving the way for those who might one day be deemed an "Architectural Technologist", Iddris Sandu is a pioneering young technologist seeking to level the playing field for fellow African youth & other marginalized groups. Having worked with the likes of creatives such as Nipsey Hussle and Louis Vuitton & Off-White's Virgil Abloh, Iddris has been making waves since before he turned 18. Not only is Iddris breaking ground in the use of emerging technology in creative spaces, but also in creating unique and sustainable designs to impact some of the most vulnerable populations in society. I follow this trend but since "clayton bigsby" pop up in the forum time to time, I think I'll maintain this thread when I discover new information about technologists from the African Diaspora... Meet Alan Emtage, the Black Technologist Who Invented ARCHIE, the First Internet Search Engine Internet search has had a profound impact on our own internal makeup—on how we learn, and how we think. https://daily.jstor.org/alan-emtage-first-internet-search-engine/#:~:text=But it's worth revisiting that,FTP servers%3A “ARCHIE.” "At a time when “googling” has become the generic term for conducting an internet search, it can be hard to remember that search had a long history before Google came along. But it’s worth revisiting that past during Black History Month, because the pre-Google era saw one of the most momentous black contributions to the development of the internet: the invention of internet search itself, by Alan Emtage."

  12. @richardmurray, black men do not truly believe white women are a better prize. White women are more easily accessible and less complicated. When black athletes are recruited to a college or university, the tour includes a visit of the campus, training facilities and dormitories, a hearty breakfast, lunch and dinner and no shortage of white women to satisfy their physical needs. Athletes get used to this treatment and carry it over into their professional lives. Of course, it's a set up. White women are forbidden fruit. But, white men will prostitute their women in order to make money and destroy black men. Sure enough, black men will make a ton of money only to give it right back to white folks by way of gross consumerism and taking care of white women and their offspring either voluntarily or involuntarily. Lamar Odom and now Kanye West should be case studies in why it's not a good idea for black men to entangle themselves with white women. But, this BS has been ongoing since Jack Johnson won the World Heavyweight boxing title back in 1908.

I used to believe critical thinking was key to intelligence - but now I’m leaning towards curiosity and creativity. In fact, if it’s true we only use 10 percent of the brain’s capacity -then 90 percent is iMAGInation.

But, AfroAmericans have bigger issues to deal with right here in America. Our folks can't buy a bag of groceries or worship in peace without fearing an AR-15 toting, hate-filled white boy is going to show up and start spraying the place like he's playing a video game.

  17. @Greg Oh, stfu. As if i owe you any explanations. I will however, give you what your deserve. I am an American by accident of birth, and couldn't care about being a better one because I don't do patriotism. You won't see me getting bleary eyed at the sight of that red white and blue polyester banner flapping in the breeze. What i care about this jive-assed country amounts to very little. And spare me a recitation of what you find when you consult your files for "retorts to hostile black sistas" because I am an equal opportunity cynic. Afro centrism doesn't make my heart beat like an Ibo drum. But the innate essence of my blackness is what dissipates the stench of sorry-assed, right-wing nerds like you. Now, go crawl back under your rock. @Troy My father from time to time mentioned his "coal black" grandmother who he said was a freed slave, but he didn't go into detail about this, possibly because, as i recall, she was very old and possibly senile. Also, as a child, my family would make periodic trips to Nashville,Tennessee, to visit my maternal grandfather who looked like a white man. He was born a slave but was freed when he was a child. Floating around among my relatives are copies of the slave narrative he dictated as a participant in a project during the 1930s where crews went around the country recording memories of ex-slaves. i have read it, and because he was only a slave for about 6 or 7 years, there wasn't a lot to tell. I do remember him talking about his father and a posse of other black townspeople fighting off a raid of Klu Klux Klanners and sent them runnin'. Most of his narrative was about his later years as a free man. He eventually became a Deputy Sheriff assigned to keep peace in the black part of Franklin,Tennessee, where he lived...

  18. Troy Absolutely. There's a verse in the Bible that says, "A wise man changeth often...while a fool changeth not" When new information (especially facts) are presented to you, then ofcourse you should reconsider your position on a subject and change it if necessary. Even the best generals know this in warfare. I think PRIDE gets in the way of a lot of men changing their positions.

  20. @GregThe broken record you won't take off the turntable is deteriorating into static. Furthermore, you are so insulated in what you consider a perfect life, that you actually believe that all problems have viable solutions and that logistics play no role in regulating human behavior. Also, although talk is cheap your words are no bargain. They are counterfeit. Be advised that social services are an industry. What the bottom half of society does, is create employment for those who work for the agencies and charities that minister to the indigent and downtrodden - and well coiffed, beautifully manicured baby mamas. Whatever. Welfare doesn't cost the nation nearly as much as the military industrial complex nor the tax breaks corporate America benefits from. A good conservative Republican mouth piece like you should appreciate the well-oiled coordination between the haves and the have-nots that keep this Capitalistic country running. Since you are so deep into shaming, you should focus on other areas of society that reek with white collar disgrace and corruption. But apparently your assignment is to stick to the script, and continue to hammer away at what a liability blacks are to the nation that has contributed to what many of them have become. Your lectures and reprimands accomplish nothing. You're not telling blacks anything that we don't already know. The problems remain because we are not miracle workers. And you, in your role of a conservative lackey, are a part of the problem, not the solution.

  21. @GregGlutton for punishment that I am, I have indigestion from being subjected to the myopia of your tunnel vision which also serves as an echo chamber for the typical black conservative narrative you parrot. Everything you lament about between the lines of your thinly-disguised white envy, is bracketed in the phrase "the black community". In your relentless critiques you persist in equating community with class. but I'm here to challenge your rhetoric. The types you rant about are only a portion of the "black community" and they fall under the sub-heading that sociologists categorize as the underclass, they are the people who abide in the "inner cities", a sanitized term for the "ghetto". To you, it's as though the black middle class which represents a different lifestyle within the black community, doesn't exist. But it does. You are not some rare paragon of virtue. There are millions of other blacks who your sordid scenarios don't describe. You're always admonishing people for not facing the truth and you need to follow your own advice. The black community is not a monolith! It is made up of different classes. But you won't be silenced in your campaign against absentee fathers and their baby mamas, droning the same ol tired solutions full of hot air that will never solidify. You will continue to argue that this problem and what it spawns is much worse among blacks. I, therefore, propose a cure-all for what is not just a black dilemma because what you disapprove of occurs among all ethnicities. Since males are the ones with whom the trouble begins, I suggest a law be passed to perform reversible vasectomies on all boy babies at birth. Sterilize them until such time as they have proven they are upstanding, gainfully-employed members of society ready for marriage, - a rite which will be preceded by an operation to reverse the vasectomy. And all will be right with the world... Of course the odds of this happening are zilch. So just get on with your squeaky clean rubber stamp life and shut up. What you envision for the black race is not realistic. Why? Because its members are what they are and this is not a perfect world. And, personally speaking, I'd rather belong to an interesting multi-faceted species who come in all varieties and who, in spite of so much adversity, have still retained a remarkable ability to enjoy themselves, - unlike a tight-ass square like you.

  22. All you guys jolted by the sporadic incidents of mass shootings of black folks by white mental cases, have been spared the reality of what is happening in Chicagoland on a daily basis. Here, the only ones murdering black folks - and wounding and killing law enforcement officers in the course of traffic stops are black males. Among this element, it has also become standard procedure for arguments, be they ignited by road rage or personal beefs, to be settled by gun fire. When it comes to the ongoing crimes of car jackings and robberies, they are committed by black or brown males who are all armed with guns. Gang drive-bys also contribute to the mayhem. What easy access to guns has done is enable a significant portion of America's black male population to live and die by the trigger, and to survive off the loot of their crimes. Glamorizing black gun owners as Minute Men at the ready in case of a race war is like something out of a Spike Lee movie, starring Samuel L. Jackson. Fiction. Institutionalized racism is real and needs only an excuse to annihilate threats to its power.

But the problem is, the kind of collective action you are referring to is not in the black populace of the usa. Look at this website. Most black people in the usa online are not members of a black owned website. Said people can't even organize together online, with no threat or harm whatsoever, so... offline. I do comprehend your point. but I think it leads to a larger problem. The black populace in the usa is a collection of individuals for the most part in 2022.

  35. We should give a slight nod to those who have the courage of their convictions. Being open minded can also include wishy washy fence sitters who just shrug their shoulders when it comes to issues. Open mindedness is best practiced when it proceeds taking a position. i am not always open minded, but i am aware of the fact that emotions influence my biases. When it comes to liberals and conservatives, i admit that I usually side with Liberals because I like them. They're cooler and more personable and compassionate and humorous than conservative stiffs who are square and corny and sappy.

  39. @Delano Truth! This is truth and ranks right up there with the other genius and profound observations you’ve shared in this space (and on my blog too!) Communication is like sequence, a simple algorithm that causes folks to carry out tasks. It is absolutely manipulative - that’s the function! @Troy said something very powerful in his WSJ appearance -(paraphrasing) algorithms will have a lot of things popping up for you to buy but they are meaningless without context - therefore sharing your experience cuts through the noise . I realize now from this simple distinction is why I call you twin. We don’t communicate, we commune ( a word that has become obsolete) we share feelings and experiences. Commune rises to a level of intimacy. The only time you and I have locked horns here was that one time we tried to out-fact each other. lol … Aside, I remember @Pioneer1 made a comment that I never called the black men in this forum “brother” .. I always wondered about that but later I began to feel a kinship. From your observation - I get why some folks I’ve never met now feel like family and others can eff all the way off. The old and new currency is intimacy —🗝 “Don't give the fact; give the feeling" -Crossing Lines

And how did you acquire that information? I suspect you made it up as it fits into your narrow world view. If you did not make it up, please share a source. Otherwise, I suggest you get out into the world and talk to a variety of different people. Republicans definitely do not hold a monopoly on causing harm to Black people. The fact I even have to say that tells me I’m wasting my time…. Your blind hatred of Republicans is clouding your reasoning.

  43. H8ll to the naw. A teacher has zero business making a male wear a dress. Not for any reason. Not even if he begged her to let him do it. In addition to racism, I also take issue with this pussification of our society. Masculinity is under attack. Some men are allowing it. Athletes are physical specimens. Yet, these *dudes* are wearing tight pants and leggings and some are wearing dresses too. I recently saw a picture of an NBA basketball player wearing an outfit that I could only shake my head. I'm willing to bet they would not wear that same sh8t and walk into a penitentiary. As a caveman alphamale, I will never acquiesce to anything that emasculates manhood.

  45. Racism remains forever the preoccupation of black Americans. As much as it has been a bump in the road, it has also served to clear the way for black excuses . And, above all. has become a security blanket, always there to villainize whites and assure blacks that were it not for racism, they could usurp white supremacy - and replace it with black supremacy! Which is why racism is as American as apple pie. Whoever is in control, would naturally attribute this power to those holding it being better than who could not wrest it away from them. Who's to dispute this? And so it goes. Justice is an abstract ideal that is never guaranteed in this impersonal indifferent world. Nor do all problems have viable solutions; just theories and opinions and fantasies. And for those waitin' on Jesus, = forget it. Bottom line: the strong survive. So the "what-black-folks-need to do" dialogue goes on and on and on ad infinitum... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz (Back to the Cynic's Corner, my permanent domain. Hi, Delano, I'm still star gazing.

  46. 1. Black America will "put racism aside" when the White folks COMMITTING THEIR RACISM put it to the side first. Telling Black folks to put racism to the side and focus their attention on something else is like telling a rape victim to stop worrying about the crimes the rapist is committing against her and focus on global warming. 2. I HOPE a deadly asteroid strikes the planet. I HOPE it's powerful enough to destroy this civilization. Maybe this event will be the event that will change the paradigm and get the wicked rulers out of power since so many other attempts have failed so far.

Like old uncle tom Clarence Thomas who denied racism for much of his career and was against affirmative action until they tried to keep his Black behind off the so-called Supreme Court and THEN all of a sudden he started complaining about "racism" and "high tech lynching". You Conservative Negroes are a trip....lol.

  49. Hate crimes are very real in America. That's why there is an Anti-Asian Hate Crime Bill that was passed with overwhelming support in both the House and Senate. Black folks in America are victims of hate crimes far more than any other group of people yet do not have similar protection in the form of legislation. IMO, that makes it easier for racist white folks to continue killing black folks with impunity.
