  1. Don't forget Jazz and gospel. There is zero musical culture that white people have created without the influence of Black Americans. You seem to have forgotten whites would have starved with help from the indigenous Americans. Which they repaid by slaughtering their hosts. Here's a hint Hidden Figures. White people all over the world are successful because of stealing and genocide. Read the real history of the Untied States. The suggestion that you either read or think is rhetorical.

  2. Greg, You do know this is a literature website?... Despite your low opinion of black people, you know we learned how to read, right? And guess what? Over here, we read A LOT! So let me gift you this article - - https://wapo.st/3HQOf9L Dude may have given out some checks, but the lion's share of forgivable loans, $6.6 Billion and counting, went to white folks.

  3. @GregFor somebody who is always yakking about using proper English, you could benefit from doing so yourself. Your sentence that says: "All of our issues in our Black community is self inflicted and has nothing to do with hardworking Asians, Whites, of Hispanics "etc. should say: "All of our issues in our black community are self inflicted and have nothing to with Asians, whites, or Hispanics etc... Sheeze! In fact, you are a light weight in other areas when it comes to assessing what you mis-label as the "black community". You are incapable of looking at the big picture, or peering past your nose. No deep thinker, you lack the capacity to comprehend that the pendulum of humanity's clock has been wound up and is now on the swing from back to forth. Other ethnicities inspiring your dismay at being victimized by black thugs are collateral damage representing what happens when payback rears its ugly head and justice disappears. Like now. What's being demonstrated as the black aberrations descended from slaves avenge what normal whites did to those slaves long ago. The outcome? Shit happens. If you weren't so busy carping about proper English and unwed pregnancies, and lack of ambition you'd have time to develop some intellectual muscle instead of being stuck on stupid. You could benefit from a little profound cogitation, maybe become enlightened about how CIVILIZATION unfolds, doing what it does, rising and falling, progressing and stumbling, moving on, lurching ahead, time bringing change that reverts back to sameness. In the scheme of things what is now being perpetrated by black criminals is out of control and cannot be fixed. It will have to sort itself out with what will undoubtedly be tragic results. Self Genocide. Martial Law. Race War. That's life. Or will the ghetto culture and mindset that so offends you change over night or even at all. A collective consciousness is deeply entrenched and preserved by an environment that society perpetuates because it needs scapegoats and others to blame for why things are the way they are. You cannot conceive of the idea that your world vision blurs in the face of reality and you are wasting your time and that of those who you harass with your demands. So, as far as the "Greg Project" goes, all of your bitching and lecturing is just drivel. You serve no purpose except to the white puppet masters who pull your strings. Attempting to be the paternalistic arbitrator of what the black community needs to do to be worthy of white approval is an exercise in futility because you are neither a super hero nor a role model. - just a naggin wanna-be. Stefan thinks it's not a good idea to engage with trolls, but you provide me with a way to amuse myself. Ha-Ha.

  4. @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 care about 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.

  5. 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.

  8. @Stefan, I would contend that a troll cannot destroy a forum that has well-informed and intelligent folks capable of articulating and defending their position on topics. Trolls or folks incapable of logical thoughts and/or holding a conversation won't stick around for too long. While it would be easier to let a troll thread fall off the main page, we can also use them for target practice. Here is a *paper trail* of consistency in calling out ignorance and providing truth, facts and reasonable thought. From a positive perspective...our written words is proof that we can and do communicate effectively.

  12. Donald Trump got so angry in the White House when some things did not work out the way he wanted, he took to throwing plates in a rage. Ha ha ha. No wonder a few folks at his former Amen headquarters of Fox News have been taking on-air shots at him. Well, I bet what former Mark Meadows aide Cassidy Hutchinson revealed earlier Tuesday, June 28, is gonna make Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch positively giddy. For those not paying attention, ( and it seems many who love the smelly elephant party are not ), Murdoch is now so over Trump, he and others feel it is safe to take on the incompetent fool at last. 'Coz they done got themselves a younger and more savvy White Supremacist man they can funnel all sorts of ill-gotten riches to. And this one dosen't say goofy things or hire nincompoops such as Rudy Giuliani. Despite calmer, more analytical and truth-telling individuals informing the world for years that Trump is actually an unhinged, misogynist and racist buffoon, his faithful minions defend him 24/7. Trump will likely still whine, sulk and lash out as he begs people to believe massive voter fraud cost him the 2020 election. No, clown. The voters of this country simply didn't want your dumb rear end screwing up everything anymore. And they voted your crazy butt out. So, you can bet Trump will focus most of his rage on the 25-year White woman who ignored numerous rumored threats and told the world how desperate Trump was on Jan. 6. Why, after being told that intruders had gotten into the US Capitol building and it was no longer safe, Trump wanted the Secret Service to drive him there anyway. This, despite it now being known several vile people in the Insurrection Crowd were armed with guns. When they said no, Trump allegedly reached forward and tried to grab the steering wheel of "The Beast" himself. But no joy. Trump not only has little hands, he's got short arms, too. So back to the White House went a miffed Trump and his dejected coup plotters. Now, the hope is that some other folks in the know find their courage and come forward and testify before the Jan. 6 Commission as well. It must have been a sight when Trump tried to wrest control of his Secret Service Lincoln Navigator. It may have been the one time to belt out a brand new gospel song in case you were headed for heaven that afternoon.

  13. Voting helps, especially in LOCAL elections and even state elections to a certain extent. However it's only a FACTOR in the entire political process. Not only do you have to VOTE your interests and vote the people who promote them into office, but you have to FOLLOW UP your vote by constantly putting pressure on those elected officials to implement your agenda. Most Black folks don't understand that it takes money to keep people in office and you have to continue to fund their elections and political career if you want them to push your agenda. On top of that...... Giving them money will eventually get YOU more money and benefits; so it's more of an investment.

  14. I strongly disagree with this. The media give trump attention. Many people seek attention indeed a lot of them pay for it and don't get nearly has much. Think about the presidential election. Trump got more media attention than all of the other candidates combined. As you suggested @Stefan I don't believe the people wanted all of this attention heaped onto trump, but if you've even driven a car on the highway you know an accident draws attention. Even the people pissed off for the delay will slow down and look. Not necessarily Professor, I have to side with @Stefanon this one: despite the electoral college, the gerrymandering, the changes to the election laws, and BS calms of voter fraud, if everyone person who did not want Trump in office voted Trump can not win. But the problem is too many of us spend to much time online and have become convinced that our vote does not matter, so we sit out elections especially the midterms. VOTE it matters.

Facts aren't excuses, especially when they introduce extenuating circumstances. Furthermore, any documentary that doesn't acknowledge that certain behavior is more about class than race, is bogus.

  21. @Troy the reason why black folks have to read about black on black crime cause white owned media chooses that to be a genre to emit. It also helps that white asians/white latinos/white women side many other whites enjoy berating the black peoples who are aside them in their particular races, ala black latinos. But the question is the solution. And as this site proves. Black people are the problem. We don't use the media black people own enough. In the same way we don't use the hsbc's enough. If we as a people can't ween off white media it isn't white media's fault that they are doing what is best for them. Your point is correct but the problem is the solution goes against what most black people in the usa say is a solution, ala getting white media to change.

  24. @Pioneer1, while running for POTUS, as Senator John McCain told the white woman who was disparaging future POTUS Barack Obama..."I'm not gonna let you do that...he's a good man." In the grand scheme of things, white women know their place especially within the system of racism. They're always on code. The reason white women aligned their movement with AfroAmerican Civil Rights movement is because white men were vulnerable and listening. White men used the white women's movement as a way to put another layer between themselves and AfroAmericans. That's why white women earn more than black folks. White men got a 2 for 1 deal. They were able to calm down the home front and add another income to the household. IMO, white women weren't betrayed by black men during the Civil Rights struggle. They used it to their benefit. While it may never happen, if there was a race war, rest assured that white women would do as Dolly Parton instructed when she sang...stand by your man. Yep. Lilly will be locked and loaded with an AR-15 or Smith & Wesson busting shots just like her daddy taught her as a teenager. She might even be wearing a p8ssy hat.

  28. Yes!” Fall Back and regroup” That is definitely a Black woman thing. After the decision was handed down -a black out should have followed. With leaders and others saying “No comment. Then every women retreating indoors. Just go home or stay home. We would act like we were “sitting shiva” over a dead relative. One - It would have been unexpected and two - it would have absolutely scared the sh*t out of SCOTUS and the world. It would have been “a world without women” even if it only lasted 7 hours. But of course, here in the U.S., white women must perform. And of course, some dude ran over them with a truck. Phoenix law enforcement tear-gassed protesters. A Black woman, who is running for state senate in RI decided to march, only to get punched in the face twice by her republican opponent who is also works as a cop. It might have worked in her favor, since he dropped out of the race but the optics distract while reinforcing the message of brute force against women. The State was prepared for disruption. But total silence and no presence would h e rocked them to the core. Sort of like when a Black woman says, “I’m Fine.” But you know, All Hell is about to break loose and you’re about to have a come-to-Jesus meeting”

  39. And in other news, Rudy Giuliani, the stoop shouldered, Frankenstein walking former Mayor of NYC is still dying from a supposed vicious slap in the back at a Staten Island, N.Y., Shoprite supermarket. Rudy, whose continuous eyebrow raising was a thing of beauty and weirdness, is also an ardent defender of Lord Dampnut who put in many moons of work for 45 (and rarely got paid). Rudy still claims massive voter fraud doomed his former boss and thinks his son, Andrew should've been be NY Governor. But voters said nyet. But I don't feel sorry for him. Rudy just cursed out NYC Mayor Eric Adams, a former police captain, who reminded Captain Anti-Crime that one can be punished for filing a false police report. Touchy, touchy. Rudy & Son are reportedly looking for investors and a producer for a full-length horror movie about the Shoprite incident incident. It will be called "The Slappening."

  40. ...most importantly the capital markets choose winners out the gate. Wow! LOL! What does Facebook know that you might not know ... yet? "brag" Interesting word I was not aware that I came across that way. At any rate, there are other sources of information that TV or even the world wide web. I simply do not consume news from social media or some of the site designed to attract visitors versus providing information. For example I just finished reading a scathing account of the trump white house and steve Banon's impact it is eye opening, but you are simply not going to red that on Facebook. The article was in The Atlantic they take the time and space to cover subjects with the nuance and depth you will rarely find for free on the web. I actually agree with this statement, but that is a very different thing than saying that all republican or trump supporters are racists, which I disagree with The other thing we really should look at is what is to be a racist? There are Black people who are afraid big dark skinned Black men. This is because they live in America and are fed a steady diet of the crap Uncle Ruckus has been sharing here-- the web has just made this worse. A white person subjected to the same nonsense and who feels the same fear of Black men is racist. Racism is profitable. Trump is profitable. Our free web-based news spends a great deal of time talking about trump and racism -- fanning the flames. This attention gave Trump the presidency and it also makes some people believe racsim is worst today than it was in the 19th century.

For most of her life, she held on to the large plot of land that she and her late husband Samuel pinched pennies to buy — even after the state ran a freeway through their mostly Black community after the city used eminent domain to take nearly nine acres for a sewage drain, and after the state added a beltway. But now, as state officials plan another major road expansion, Anderson is offering to sell them her land and leave. "If they don't take my house," she said, "I'm going to be just in a little corner, in a little hole by myself. Where I am, it's like a dead end."

I will not agree with that - even though some may visualize this a pleasant fantasy. @Chevdove You are absolutely right. What happened in Buffalo, N.Y., is an example of domestic racist terrorism.
