  1. For the sake of humanity AND every animal from ALL endangered species, PLEASE don't even make us think about this! Oh my goodness. Have you seen him dance?? :-/ Some of us would be lookin at this like, "Unt-uh, that right there don't come from OUR side!"
  2. I think that astrology is absolutely fascinating. I'm not even a serious student of astrology, yet the little that I know amazes me.
  3. I get along with pretty much all signs because my sun sign is a combination of them all.
  4. Friedrich Nietzsche, The Parable of the Madman (1882) Have you not heard of that madman who lit a lantern in the bright morning hours, ran to the market place, and cried incessantly: "I seek God! I seek God!" -- As many of those who did not believe in God were standing around just then, he provoked much laughter. Has he got lost? asked one. Did he lose his way like a child? asked another. Or is he hiding? Is he afraid of us? Has he gone on a voyage? emigrated? -- Thus they yelled and laughed. The madman jumped into their midst and pierced them with his eyes. "Whither is God?" he cried;
  5. I love Fela! You should also check out "Music is the Weapon".

  7. http://www.ebony.com/news-views/respectability-politics-wont-save-your-black-life-405 Respectability Politics Won't Save Your Black Life Activist/journalist Goldie Taylor on how being 'good' has failed to protect Black people over and over again
  8. Open Mind Round Table with Malcolm X, James Farmer, Wyatt T. Walker, and Alan Morrison.
  9. Missed you, too~ True, it's sacreligious to call those acts "magic" in the very same way that human sacrifice is paganistic,bestial, and wicked....UNLESS, of course, it is at the very center of one's salvation. I, of course, digresss. :-) Perhaps such discussions exist because the definition or at least the perception of magic has changed over time. Things that are normal to some are called "paranormal" . Things that strike some as abnormal are "norms". I personally don't find it odd for a stranger to be able to describe one's personality so well by simply observing the s
  10. Black on black violence/crime is quite profiitable. Perhaps this is why we do not hear too many complaints about it from the dominant culture until there is a need to distract, divide, and deflect. The counternarrative of black on black violence has been especially hot in conservative circles. Quite crafty obviously, because this counternarrative has been adopted by many who probably would otherwise actually be discussing the injustice of the Zimmerman trial and the injustice of black life in America. How easily we are distracted. What really is our logic behind those who have neve
  11. In light of the recent events, the question is raised in the black community often: "What has the Zimmerman trial taught you?" I am not trying to be funny here, yet to me, the previous question is comparable to the question "What has calculus taught you about subtraction?" The concept of subtraction was understood well before encountering calculus, so what exactly was calculus "supposed" to teach me about subtraction? At any rate, there are many of us to whom the concept of injustice seemed a bit unfamiliar until the Zimmerman verdict was announced. Perhaps in some cases this is because
  12. Greetings, Everyone. Hiya, Troy! Hi, Cynique. Hi and I concur, Delano. When we think about it though, Is "magic" not at the center of what is considered to be every "major" religion? It clearly is in Christianity. Events such as turning water into wine and walking on water are perfectly believable, but it has to be from a page out of a HOLY book, not a MAGIC book.
  13. Let it not be forgotten that "freedom and democracy" coexisted with the slaughtering of indigenous people and the slavery of African people here quite peaceably. Let is not be under-analyzed that in this democracy, the majority (those who possess/directly benefit from the possession of political and economic power) rules. How can such a system ever really work for those of a disenfranchised minority? As the article in another topic asks whether Pan-Africanism is myth or reality, we need to be asking ourselves whether democracy here is myth or reality. Perhaps a good step fo
  14. Greetings. The idea that people who are homosexual and wish to be married should be able to do so and have this marriage recognized in all aspects is becoming increasingly popular. Perceptions of gender/roles are changing rapidly, as are families and society in general in response to these changes in perceptions. (From Michel Martin's "Tell me More" show on npr.) When people debate gay marriage, some argue that it could lead to legalized polygamy. Host Michel Martin asks how, and if it would even matter. She speaks with Austin Nimocks of the Alliance Defense Fund and Jonathan Ra
