  1. More Colorism. I feel sorry for most of you. I know some White Liberals who are more "Black" in loving our entire people than many of you. Maya Rudolph's mother was singer Minnie Riperton. Does Maya reject her Black side as Candace Owens and Stacey Dash have?
  2. A Black person. What does his or her having a light skinned grand parent have to do with it? Stop judging, stop categorizing and stop looking into the past. The future is now. We have lives to live and a history to safeguard.
  3. Pioneer, That is your opinion and I could care less what you think. Got news for you: Stacey Abrams will continue to impress. And you will continue to grouse.
  4. Troy, I'm surprised at your description of Barack Obama as inexperienced. And you're taking issue with those who voted for him? No first time U.S. President has experience at being POTUS. None. So, they're all inexperienced. Our people continue to suffer from self-inflicted wounds.
  5. We all know friends and supporters will create new ones for the dude. This should have been done a long time ago.
  6. Troy, There are a lot more Blacks in these Right Wing leaning groups that many realize. There are thousands of Black gun lovers in the U.S. And many thousands more who just go about their lives quietly. But it's no longer a surprise that many Black Conservatives have thrown their lot in with these cretins. We just did not see many of them at the Capitol Hill insurrection.
  7. Pioneer1, You appear to be living in a time warp and have no friggin' clue what's really going on. You sound jaded, angry at life and thoroughly ticked off at anyone with a different viewpoint.
  8. It is a mistake to believe the domestic terrorists who stormed the Capitol Building share a GroupThink. The Capitol Hill rioters are not all Rednecks. That is an outdated and myopic view of Right Wingers. A son of a prominent Brooklyn Orthodox Jew who was elected a judge also stormed the Capitol Building. So did a few Black men. The ones who hate freedom and respect for everyone are a disparate group. And they include many cops and folks in the military. But I believe Delano wanted ideas of what will come next in a few weeks or months. Because the system will not be destroyed. It
  9. Well, it is now being by some news outlets reported as true: Angry supporters of defeated Trump who believe the election was stolen and Second Amendment fanatics plan to show up in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 20th. The instructions for these folks included a suggestion to bring a gun, according to some news networks.
  10. Here what is next for the United States: The country has entered an era of permanent insurgency. Intolerant, unreasonable and never satisfied Trump supporters want to completely destroy what’s left of political decency and compromise. I'm not going to waste my time with those who still claim both major political parties are essentially the same. Because they are not and haven't been resembled each other when it comes to human rights since the 1980's. The ones who stormed the Capitol Building and started a riot are not protesters. They’re domestic terrorists who are loyal to one person an
  11. The Republican Party is much, much worse and has become the party of uber racists.
  12. Stacey Abrams’ triumph in Georgia elevated her into the ranks of storied political legends. Those who don’t understand BlackThink and how candidate transparency is necessary to increase voter turnout ignore her at their peril. Stacey kicked butt in the Peach State.
  13. Police were held back on orders of the Pentagon. National Guardsmen were ordered to deploy without bullets. Because the fearless one lied and told the domestic terrorists that he would march with them to the Capitol. But cowards always lead from the rear. Not wanting the boy genius to be shot accidentally, the police and guardsmen had to comply. They had orders from higher-ups. That would be the clowns who Trump named to replace SecDef Mark Esper. The Fix was in days before.
  14. It did not pay for one football coach to make fun of Stacey Abrams. A football coach at the University of Tennessee has been fired after he made an insulting Twitter post about Georgia voting rights activist and former gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, according to Alabama dot com. Chris Malone, the now former offensive line coach at Chattanooga, posted to his personal Twitter account after Georgia had elected two Democrats to the U.S. Senate. He made multiple unflattering references to Abrams’ weight and accused her of “cheating in an election,” the website said. Abrams i
  15. Stacey Abrams is no quitter. She is an accomplished winner and more than half of the people in the U.S. are cheering her awesome achievements. I can only imagine how many are lionizing Stacey Abrams around the world. Jealous much?
  16. A person who is a real quitter does not rise again to triumph. Stacey Abrams singlehandedly delivered Georgia into the Democratic Party's column. And then she engineered the unthinkable: A resounding U.S. Senate victory for a Black man from her state. And the election of a White Jewish man from her state. This gives the Senate to the Democrats. Stacey Abrams was cheated out of the Governorship by a White man who denuded thousands of legitimate Black voters from the state rolls. She did not blow it. If you think she's a quitter, then Black people will take that kind of quitti
  17. Trump knew what he was asking for. He knows he's lost but he wanted to cause as much mayhem and upheaval as possible on his way out the door.
  18. Troy, I am sorry I missed that post. Glorious old building. I remember racing down the stairs after the dismissal and running to the subway at Dekalb Avenue. Fun times.
  19. Garland, If you're only concerned with college or high school honors students, then your research results will be skewered. You have to get past Apathy and the never ending pursuit of Entertainment. Thinking is hard. Patience and Understanding are even harder. Most people in this country have no idea who their local congressional representative is. They cannot name more than five state capitals if asked on the spot. Ask them to name the Presidents of the country backwards. Most will stop at four or five. This is on the spot asking. And those folks include high school honors and colleg
  20. Garland, Just what classrooms are you talking about? National elections usually fall under the umbrella of discussing current events in junior, Intermediate and high schools. Most teachers in public schools usually have wide discretion in how to approach current events.
  21. Scotland's Sunday Post and a couple of U.K. newspapers have published a news story that reported that Prestwick airport, near Trump’s Turnberry golf course resort, has been told to expect a U.S. military Boeing 757 on January 19th. The aircraft has occasionally been used by Trump, the paper reported. There are two Boeing VC-5 aircraft that are used as Air Force One. But Trump will not be using them for this Scotland trip. The trip will allow Trump to avoid being in D.C. for the presidential inauguration of Joe Biden.
  22. This piece was far too long and my interest waned quickly. I guess the gist was the young pastor spread himself too thin and didn't take note of his weakening body. While this is a cautionary tale, I doubt it's germane for most young Black men. If anything, this type of scenario probably reflects the situation of many Black grandmothers and single moms.
  23. Troy, I had no idea you had left Florida. All my best to you. And I am happy to learn that the victims of the Tulsa Race Riot are being officially memorialized. I hope Tulsa figures out its place as part of the Sooner State awarded to Native Americans.
  24. Joan, The ancient city of Ephesus was in the western portion of what is now Turkey. The city's most prominent feature was the temple of Artemis. The rebuilt structure stood in the first century when the Apostle Paul visited the city. According to some historians, the original temple had been set on fire by Herostratus in 356 B.C. I hope you join the Discussion board. Note to editors: The map is from Pinterest.
