  1. ************************************************************************************ Washing dishes is a low skill job, but that doesn't mean the person doing that job has no other skills. That is what Mayor Adams doesn't seem to get with his blanket statements about how certain workers couldn't be productive in a corner office. Just like waiting tables might be considered as low skill, but you need people skills in a job like that, if you plan on earning TIPS and having happy customers. There are people in corporate jobs and other white collar positions that aren't even good at dealing with people, and that is one of the most important/valuable skills you can have. NYC has a Mayor that ran a great campaign, but he lacks people skills and he probably can't wash dishes either. ************************************************************************************
  2. @Troy How is it antiquated if it's still in use? I am not marginalizing anything. I simply asked why anyone would want to live in a third world country. How many times are you going to ask me what I meant by "third world"? I already posted a link to the dictionary definition of it above. And I'm pretty sure you understand what I meant. What else do you want from me? How is that disparaging? Yes, you can have third world living conditions in the United States of America if you are living in an area without electricity or running water, but the United States of America is not a third world country. I live in a 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom house, and all my close neighbors are millionaires. They are doctors, lawyers, business owners/executives and such. This is not the most expensive part of town but it's damn close. I am retired, I have worked all my life, and I'm still earning passive income in addition to my pensions, etc. If someone else wants to live in a trailer/mobile home, on the road in an RV, in a tent, some other configuration of a house, move to Ghana or Nigeria or some other war-torn, terrorist infested location, I don't really give a care. You. Do. You.
  3. ************************************************************************************ @nels Your question is an unanswerable riddle. You are either Black or you are not. I think this Patton woman is as phony as they come. She married a white man and bore him a blonde child that appears to be totally white, but she wants everybody to know that she's really a Soul Sister when she is nothing but a hypocrite. Another one that I can't stand is Halle Berry. She also married white men and had their children. And now she insists that her quadroons are actually Black people. If she wanted Black children, shouldn't she have gotten herself impregnated by Black men. Plus Halle has had all kinds of plastic surgery to remove any traces of her ethnic Negroid features so why is she advocating for Blackness. And on top of that, she can't act her way out of a paper bag but that's besides the point. I'm so tired of these fake ************************************************************************************

  5. ************************************************************************************ He won't be loved by anybody if he keeps on insulting people. Even dumb people don't like it when somebody tells them they are dumb. And hardworking people don't like to be told that they are lazy. This dude probably should have stayed out of politics because his people skills are sorely lacking. Exactly. They are working their way through school and sometimes they do it as a side hustle during their career to supplement their income. This work is nothing to be ashamed of. I have done it and I don't appreciate people who would put someone else down because they work in the service industry. That mayor could ************************************************************************************

  7. ************************************************************************************ I do not watch most of these Black television programs such as Black-ish, Empire, and whatever else. Back when whitey wrote scripts and dialog, Blacks were mostly given acting roles that portrayed us as hoe-ish women, gangster men, single mother families, employed in menial jobs, and all the other negative connotations that whitey thought about Blacks. Now that Blacks have their own production companies and movie studios, and more Blacks are writing scripts and dialog, Blacks are still given acting roles that portray us in the same manner that I stated above. The women are always out to get laid, the men are shady, children come from broken homes, we are cast in some sort of dancing or singing role, being funny, being the side-kick or some subservient variation of driving Miss Daisy to the Piggly-Wiggly. I don't think that much has changed. Film continues to show us as second class citizens, and then in real life we emulate how we see ourselves on the movie screen. Once in awhile there is a biographical type of movie that reflects Black lives in a positive light, but not nearly enough to make an impact. It's a sick repetitive cycle that never ends. ************************************************************************************
  8. ************************************************************************************ @Troy That house is not representative of Mexico, there are lots of regular steel and concrete constructed buildings over in Juarez, and some people have very nice homes there, I have been there. That picture and other factors is what makes Mexico a third world nation. Large parts of it are under-developed with many people living in abject poverty. There is a large area of cardboard homes visible across the border from the I-10 in El Paso, it has been that way for a long time, at least twenty years. But there are other parts of the city that are modern and well-developed, with hotels, restaurants, and everything else you would find in the U.S. I have not been to Mexico City, although I've seen it on TV. But I'm looking at their nation as a whole, not just their capital and other major cities. Consider another South American nation, like Brazil, it has modern major cities and is industrialized, but it is still considered as a third world nation. ************************************************************************************

  11. ************************************************************************************ None of the current COVID vaccines have been properly tested, nor have they been approved. The FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for them because of the rampant outbreak of COVID and its dire consequences. So people saying that the vaccines are safe, they've been properly tested, or any other similar assertions don't know what they are talking about. There is a reason why people can't sue the pharmaceutical companies over injuries from the vaccines. Several reasons actually. Too technical for me to address since I'm not an injury lawyer. The only thing that I know of that is being developed and tested properly is the Operation Warp Speed vaccine that I mentioned already. In the meanwhile, until that one is ready for distribution, skeptical people shouldn't be bullied into taking some janky experimental vaccine. ************************************************************************************

  13. ************************************************************************************ It looks like more of the same corruption with Mayor Adams. Eric Adams taps his BROTHER as NYPD deputy commissioner with a $240,000-a-year salary Keeping it in the family ************************************************************************************
  14. ************************************************************************************ @ProfD That comment was not very well thought out, especially when so many college-educated people have taken menial jobs, or side-hustles, for whatever reason. Even before COVID, people either didn't have other options, or some of those menial jobs could be better paying than the typical white- collar jobs that degreed people usually have. And some people just don't like working in a cubicle or office, they would rather deal with people or be outdoors or whatever. You can't assume that people are dumb or uneducated based only on the job they have. This new mayor needs to think and do more, and talk less so that he doesn't put his foot in his mouth. A city like NYC has too many people to try to put them into some box of preconceived notions. ************************************************************************************
  15. ************************************************************************************ I use the term "third world" as it is defined in the dictionary. Third World The term "third world" was coined by a French man. Third World Etymology I think of it as a place where people live in homes constructed of cardboard, pieces of corrugated and other scrap metal, with no running water and dirt floors. Like some of the homes that can be seen across the border into Mexico. Among other things. Obviously I was being hyperbolic if I said I knew there are hospitals in Africa. Why do you seem to take offense at things that I say? It's not as if you will be going slumming anytime soon. ************************************************************************************

  18. ************************************************************************************ @Troy Mosaic is a square. It's a discussion forum where people address various topics and that old thread was WILD! Of course Black people, and all people, control their own voice, unless they are living in some oppressed society like Russia or somewhere. Whatever you have done, it must be working. Other than the fact that this current forum is tired and boring, you have done a great job with the rest of your site. ************************************************************************************

  21. ************************************************************************************ I have Ghanaian and Nigerian friends, one of whom is a multi-millionaire so he is the exception, but generally speaking, most people who live there do not have a very pleasant existence. They struggle for everything they get. The difference between living in the U.S. in "third world" conditions, and being in the actual third world, is that here in the U.S. a person can lift themself out of their situation by getting busy doing something about it. But if they are a resident of an actual third world country, without any money, resources, or opportunities, it's much more difficult to make anything positive happen for themself. It's hard to get yourself out of poverty when everyone around you is in poverty also, and your entire nation is poverty struck. The police don't answer your calls? I don't know what's going on with you, but you damn sure won't be getting those services if you are in a third world country. And where are you going to get your medical treatment from? The village witch doctor? I know there are hospitals in Africa, but you crack me up! ************************************************************************************
  22. ************************************************************************************ Now they are saying people will need additional boosters. When is this nonsense going to end? This is from THE DAILY MAIL: Moderna CEO warns Americans they may need ANOTHER COVID booster in the fall because the shot's effectiveness won't 'hold great' after a few months CEO warns Americans may need yet another booster I don't care about math, statistics, ratios, percentages, probability, or anything else. I am not taking any vaccine with those types of side effects. I have not studied other vaccines, but I don't think there have been any other ones that do this sort of damage. Hopefully the one the Army is developing won't have any of these crazy issues. I would be willing to take that, and since I am an Army wife, I am certain that it will be available to me. ************************************************************************************
  23. ************************************************************************************ Why the heck would anybody want to go live in a third world country. You still have to pay taxes to the IRS if you live and work outside the U.S. You don't have your American citizen rights and the embassies are not going to come to your rescue if something goes sideways. People do dumb things without thinking them through, and find out too late they made a dumb decision. ************************************************************************************
  24. ************************************************************************************ This is from the Gateway article: “Something like 70 percent of the African American community are saying they are not going to take the shot,” said Cost. “More and more African Americans are getting involved in the protests and the groups in NY and across the country - the perception that only white people are against the vaccine is false. My task is to try to wake up more and more people - Black, White, Hispanic and Asian on these issues and get more and more of us involved in these organizations fighting against the mandates.” So it's obvious that most Black people do not think that the COVID vaccines are safe. Part of this is because VP Harris made disparaging remarks against the "Trump" vaccine, and now nobody wants it. Besides that, if these COVID vaccines are so safe, why do they cause BLOOD CLOTS and all the other dangerous side effects that have been reported, including death. Who would risk getting blood clots and death? Black people aren't stupid. ************************************************************************************
  25. This method of control is the boiling frog technique and it's probably happening right now.
