  1. Came across a channel I haven't seem before. It seems to be very positive and is geared towards African Americans doing positive things. Also have notice some listings of family movies. I'm not sure who's over this channel but it's the best one I have seem so far. Big improvement over BET [and others].

     

     

    It appears that Magic Johnson is one of the founders.

    Yeah, I guess.......

    But I get kind of tired of the hypocrisy of many Black actresses who think it's so nasty and degrading to show a titty or pair of bare buttocks on the big screen but yet in every other movie they're dressing like hookers in tight miniskirts and leather coats smacking on gum, and although they aren't actually seen engaged in sex itself....sexual themes are constantly insinuated and often joked about in an immature way.

    White women can't wait to get naked on the screen.

    The men love it....and the women enjoy the attention they get from it.

    Many Black women have been tricked into thinking that being naked is somehow "disrespectful" to them.

    I mentioned this before..............

    Black actresses NEED to get naked on the screen and young people NEED to see Black people in the sexual act making love to eachother.

    If they never see people who look like them with their body types nude and making love to eachother they develop inferiority complexes and become ashamed of themselves because they see the way White people look as the "normal" way.

     

    Lord please spare me from what white women do and what men want to see, Amen.

     

    Pioneer aren't you the one around here always quoting scripture, lol!

  3. About The Book

    bookcove-189x300.jpgAuthor Richie Jean Sherrod Jackson has penned her first book The House by the Side of the Road The Selma Civil Rights Movement which tells the amazing story of how an African American educator’s home became the headquarters for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Selma Civil Rights Movement.  Her story chronicles a journey from childhood growing up in Alabama during the 1930′s leading up to the 1965 Civil Right’s campaign in Selma, Alabama.

    The reader will learn about the history that was made in her home she shared with her husband, Dr. Sullivan Jackson and how together they provided their friend Martin Luther King, Jr. and other key figures of the Selma movement a safe haven during this turbulent time in our country’s history.

    Read about never before revealed accounts from a woman who witnessed history being made from behind the scenes.  The author takes the reader into her home and shares with the world the personal side of leaders who were on the forefront dedicated to peace, nonviolence, justice and equality.

    Over the years since the Selma movement the author has been featured in numerous television documentaries, books and articles and today her home contains many pieces of original furniture that filled the house during that time.  One such historical object is the author’s dining room table which the two first African American Nobel Peace Prize winners sat down to discuss plans for the Selma to Montgomery march.

    This book was written by an educator to inform the reader about this country’s struggle for voting rights and also help to create a continuing discussion on how a true democracy is dependent on the fundamental right to vote for all it’s citizens.  The author also shares a fascinating story of growing up in the racially polarizing South and the amazing journey that lead her to occupy The House By The Side Of The Road.

  4. Anika the guy in the video did a lot of bitching :-)  But I was waiting an alternative, something we do differently.  Let say we stopped supporting Obama what should we do then?

     

     

    Bitching some truth, although I did not agree with his pro republican comments. As far as I am concern the democrats and the republicans are all the same.

     

     

    Pioneer, concerning that seedy eyed character white guy you mention... 'truth is sometimes stranger then fiction."

     

    Sounds like someone on this thread voted for Obama, lol!

  5. Leonard Cooper & His Fro Wins Jeopardy’s Teen Tournament

     

    jeopardy-leonard-cooper-final-response-3
    Throughout my teens years I was obsessed with Jeopardy. Every night at 7:30 p.m., family members knew where to find me. I sat in front of the television and competed against the other contestants. My friends and family were amazed with how much useless information (which is what they called it) I knew. As I watched the teen tournament this week, I had my money on Leonard Cooper, a 17-year-old high school senior. Not only did he have a charismatic personality, he had the brains to go along with it.

    The Jeopardy Teen Tournament final is a two-day event, the scores are combined from both nights and the person with the highest total wins. Leading up to the final Jeopardy question, Cooper hit the daily double, and he went for broke. Oddly enough, the question was a pretty simple one about Twelve Angry Men, so he was able to wipe his brow after he correctly answered it.

    Then there was Final Jeopardy and this happened:

    Three points.................

    1. I am sexist.

    I dont' believe women or men are superior to the other but I do believe that being biologically and even psychologically different both have separate roles to play in society.

    2. Dark skinned women of color SHOULD NOT imitate White women in terms of make-up.

    What looks good on them doesn't necessarily look good on our women and vice versa.

    Red lipstick and blue eye shadow is for lightskinned women with blue/green eyes.

    At the risk of sounding gay (I'm homophobic as well)...........

    Black women of her complexion should wear a darker shade of brown.

     

    3. Finally....

    Let us be clear, the "ole boy" network is made up of WHITE men, not all men in general.

    Black men should never be accused of being in some "good ole boy" group.

     

     

     

     

    I don't totally disagree with you [esp.on no.1]....another reason why men should take their responsibility for their family and offspring seriously,and stop leaving all or most of the resposilbilities to the women. This is a serious injustice.

     

    The good ole boys club can be any race...its basically a bunch of scroundrel 'men' who support each other in their wrongdoing.

  7. Red Lipstick :lol:

     

    A woman of her complexion should keep her legs closed when in the presence of Reverent Jackson.

     

     

    What a sexist comment from the both of you. The 'good reverend' has a history of cheating on his wife, this was not the first time. Only this time he got caught with his pants down.The deed has been done and the very least he can do is man up and take care of his child. This is not about the good ole boys coming to the rescue of one of their own but about the responsilbility and well-being of this child.

  8. WOW!

    This event was so successful and so different than anything I've ever done.

    Giving a lecture (to a roomful of black women doctors!) on a particular subject is much calmer

    and more invigorating than the normal free-reign book reading.

    I spoke on why I don't like being called a 'strong black woman' and prefer we think about replacing

    it with 'the living woman' as our mantra. The women overwhelmingly agreed to and related with the

    entire historical picture I painted of how this language (strong black woman) does at times box us in

    as ..."mule of the world"...."they're strong (not really women) & can take care of themselves"...."be

    a strong black woman & take it like a man."

    It was quite a strong reaction, a lovely bonding time & I sold a ton of books.

    I also fell in love with Atlanta. What a beautiful and serene city.

    I have never cared for the 'strong black woman' label either. As you so wisely put it...it reeks of being the mules of the world, which too many of us have been and little thanks have we gotten for it.

    I feel we have been used, misused and disrespected more so because of this mindset of many.

    So being called a strong black woman is no compliment. It reeks of trickery.

  9. This is actually a reality show that I like. And I hope that OWN keeps it on. I love seeing a real andl positive black family and relatives being there for each other.Both [Ro and Mia]  came from dysfuntional backgrounds but have risen above it. We need more shows like this. These simple folks can inspire us.

  10. Nothing was as tragic and pitiful as the selling of Africans by Africans due to insatiable greed and God knows what else.

    A greed that continues among many African leaders today, while too many of their people are starving.

     

    Is there any difference between black greed or white and arab greed...but this is what Afro-centrics and those with a Pan African mindset cleverly ignores.

  11. Thanks for your prompt response.

     

    I guess some could turn it into a racist thing. But the littleI had read on this subject wasn't  like that at all. 

     

    Like the sign of Aries correspond to Caucasian race. This makes sense to me, since some of the traits of this sign  

    is:

    adventurous= a positive trait

    pioneering= positive trait

    courageous=a positive trait

     

    daredevil and foolhardy= negative traits.

     

    We know as a group [not as individuals] Caucasians tend to have some of these traits.

    [Just an example]

     

    I don't remember what races the other signs corresponded with. I think it was Capricorn that corresponded with the black race but I'm not sure of the reasons why.

     

    Anyway I was just curious about your opinion on this.

     

    I do believe there's something to astrology. One of the most interesting books I have read on this subject is called:

     

    'The Secret Language of Birthdays" by Gary Goldschneider and Joost Elffers. Some may find it eerie. It goes by one's  exact birthdate [ although not the year].
