  1. ************************************************************************************ Ahmaud Arbery's parents blast 'unauthorized backroom plea deal' that will allow Travis McMichael and Greg McMichael to serve time for killing their son in 'preferred' federal prison instead of state penitentiary. Arbery's parents came out against the plea deal, which they called an 'unauthorized backroom deal' that 'is a huge accommodation to the men who hunted down and murdered' their son. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10458759/Ahmaud-Arberys-parents-slam-McMichaels-plea-deal-federal-prosecutors-hate-crime-trial.html ************************************************************************************
  2. ************************************************************************************ @ProfD I'm not sure whether Biden has provided his list, only what I've seen in the news and that would be speculation, unless his administration has confirmed his picks. Today I saw a news article that says over 70% of voters do not approve of Biden's declaration of only considering Black women, even Black people don't like it, so it looks like another failure on his part. ************************************************************************************
  3. ************************************************************************************ This is a discussion forum, not a court of law. I cite The Daily Mail because that is where I get my news. They are just as reliable as any other source. I notice you don't ever question links from fake news CNN. Why is that? If you have an issue with The Daily Mail, or any other source or links that people can post here, then put it in your FORUM RULES. Thank you. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/onpolitics/2019/01/27/willie-brown-kamala-harris-san-francisco-chronicle-letter/2695143002/ ************************************************************************************
  4. ************************************************************************************ I agree that it would be awful for all those people to be evicted from their homes. If they didn't have the money to pay the rent where they're at, then how are they going to afford to move and rent a new place. Besides that, wouldn't all this show up on their credit report, barring them from a new rental? I have been a homeowner for twenty years, so I am not familiar with the process of renting an apartment these days. Anyway, maybe Mayor Adams can do something about it, and avoid a major disaster. Or maybe some of the world's richest people could setup a fund for the arrears. I wonder how much rent is past due. ************************************************************************************
  5. ************************************************************************************ @Stefan You must really be slow if you're still waiting on some proof that I already provided. Or are you of the opinion that Kamala's affair with Willie Brown, and her subsequent promotion because of it, is not proof that she slept her way up the career ladder? And BTW, I didn't go nuts with rage. That is more of your fake news. Talk about delusional. Get it together. ************************************************************************************
  6. ************************************************************************************ @Cynique Why do you always make everything about Trump? As a Conservative, I agreed with Trump's choices, but I didn't care for the woman because she seems weird to me, like a Stepford wife. I have not considered that the term "whitey" is derogatory, I just use it to refer to white people. I have other terms for them like crackers, honkeys, and peckerwoods. Whitey sounds so much nicer to me. As to Biden, that old cracker is a segregationist. If he had his way we'd still be at the back of the bus. I don't know why he announced that he would pick a Black woman, but hopefully it will be someone competent, unlike his other prominent Black woman choice - Kamala Harris - who has proven to be an embarrassing, incompetent do-nothing. But I'm sure you think she's fantastic, since any lackey that Biden chooses is agreeable to you, including the trannies. @ProfD Black women are supposedly 10% of the population. So, honestly, it doesn't matter to me whether there's a Black woman on the Supreme Court or not. When is the last time there was a high court case that affected Black women, specifically. Besides Brown and Loving, there haven't been any. Decisions that affect women, affect Black women, and for this reason, I don't see why a Black woman is needed on the Court any more than any other type of person. But that's just what I think about it. If you are happy about it, that is fine with me. @Troy Top person means best qualified and I don't think it's subjective at all. That decision should be based on facts, not feelings. Do I believe in the history of the court no Black woman has ever been qualified. It's my understanding that people who served on the Supreme Court were lawyers and judges. Since there was a time when Black women weren't in those career fields, they would not have been qualified based on that criterion alone. Do I think that Black women in general could be a judge without a legal background? The answer to that would be "yes" since most Black women that I have known have vast life experience, are great thinkers, and practical decision makers, but those factors are not the prerequisites of a SCOTUS justice. Obviously we would expect the Black woman that Biden appoints to be qualified, but based on the dopes he has appointed to various positions so far, I'm not too optimistic that his SCOTUS pick will be a good one. But we shall see. ************************************************************************************
  7. ************************************************************************************ I don't know what Biden's motives are, whether he is trying to appease people like Clyburn or whether he just wants the Black vote, but I would prefer if he would choose from a pool of best qualified people in the nation, vet them, and appoint the top person based on their merits. And if that person happens to be a Black woman, that would be fantastic. It seems to me that he is trying to meet some quota or place a token Black on the Court, like we're all so bereft we need help and pity. I also feel that his announcement causes hate and resentment towards us from the other ethnic groups such as the American Indians, Asian-Americans, and others because their people are just as qualified to serve on the Supreme Court as anybody else. Now, regardless of whoever is appointed, there's always going to be a question of whether that person is truly qualified, or if Blacks will always require handouts because whitey thinks that we are incapable of attaining a position on the high courts on our own, through our own education, skills, and experience. As I have stated before, I will be glad when we stop denoting firsts for Blacks, and stop focusing only on race. That would be a wonderful progress. ************************************************************************************
  8. ************************************************************************************ This is GREAT!!! Congratulations!!! I was wondering what you've been up to. ************************************************************************************
  9. ************************************************************************************ @Cynique It's official. You are a TROLL. https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Troll https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/troll Congratulations!!! ************************************************************************************
  10. @Troy How are you doing??? No, they are not like The National Enquirer although they do have a gossip section. And they also have a science, finance, sports, and all sorts of news sections. They often have U.S. breaking news before anybody else. I usually check their Wires https://www.dailymail.co.uk/wires/index.html and if there's nothing major going on I check the front page, and I comment every now and then on topics that interest me. You should check it out.
  11. ************************************************************************************ I am familiar with this news only because it was on The Daily Mail website, I do not follow Cardi, I'm not into the female rappers of today. My jaw dropped to see anyone even defending her and saying that it was all unfounded. The lady blogger claims that she has the funds, and she says that she will fight this matter all the way up to the Supreme Court. From what I can tell she has credibility, but we shall see. ************************************************************************************
  12. ************************************************************************************ ICYMI >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> ************************************************************************************
  13. ************************************************************************************ And your argument is silly. Obviously, if you live in the 'hood with no access or knowledge of any white people, or you don't have a job and therefore you have no white co-workers or friends, and every single person that you know on Planet Earth is Black, then you couldn't invite any white people to your party. But that's not what I meant, and you know it. If you want to twist my responses into some inane hypothesis to fit your narrative, that's fine, but that doesn't mean my replies are idiotic or stupid. Let's take your story about the white cop who prowls the neighborhood looking for young Black victims to rape, do you also teach your daughters that rapists come in other races as well? You've made several comments about teaching your children that whitey is bad, when a Black man is just as capable and likely of being a rapist as an asian, hispanic, or any admixture of humanity thereof. It is this thinking that makes you seem racist. You should teach your children about ALL dangers, not just the ones that might emanate from white people. BTW, I am well aware that hispanic is not a race, so don't bother pointing that out. ************************************************************************************
  14. ************************************************************************************ It doesn't matter whether the topic was Cardi B. or some other person of disrepute. You started a whole topic about Cardi having won a slander/libel suit against a blogger who referred to her as a prostitute, but your assertions about the blogger's claims being unfounded were incorrect. Your initial post is full of misguided falsehoods and I simply pointed out that you missed the part about Cardi being an admitted thief who drugged people. Instead of admitting that you were wrong, you went on to defend her by saying that just because she was a stripper, that didn't make her a prostitute. Except she's even worse than a prostitute. I also don't care whether you or anybody else agrees with me about anything. Because right is right, and wrong is wrong, and in this instance, you missed the mark. How many more times are you going to ask for proof that Kamala Harris slept her way up the career ladder. What is it that you don't comprehend? The woman lacks morals, scruples, or integrity. I don't care if she slept with Willie Brown, or the San Francisco 49ers. When a person accepts a promotion based on an affair, that is WRONG. If Kamala Harris had any decency about herself, she would have declined those promotions and made her own way based on her own hard work. That is what an honorable woman does. But instead she's gone through her entire career with that funky Willie Brown cloud hanging over her head. She is a HORRIBLE example for women and girls and she should NOT be the vice president of this great nation. As to Donald Trump, you posted a rant that he lied that his apartment was three times bigger than it actually was. He was trying to pay the correct amount of property tax so what is your argument here? https://aalbc.com/tc/topic/8382-from-this-perspective-black-america-get-your-own-house-in-order-before-you-burn-everyone-elses-down/?do=findComment&comment=49563 Find something else to argue about. You seem to take pleasure in fighting for lost causes. ************************************************************************************
  15. ************************************************************************************ Look. I don't mind if you edit your posts for punctuation or because you made a typographical error. But don't be adding more of your nonsense after I have already responded to your pansy thoughts. Obviously that jury didn't get the memo about Cardi INVITING strange men to her HOTEL room so that she could DRUG and ROB them. Which, BTW, is MUCH WORSE than being just a PROSTITUTE. This fact may have been inadmissible because people's prior CRIMES aren't usually held against them in trial. Juries are often kept in the dark on people's CRIMINAL CONDUCT so as not to taint their judgement about the case at hand. This does not mean that people in the general public, meaning us, cannot have a different opinion. If you want to live in lalaland and pretend that this HOE was not a PROSTITUTE, that is fine with me. Just don't come on here expecting the rest of us to agree with you and your silly comments that it was egregious for somebody to insult Cardi, as if she is a virtuous woman, because she is not, and everybody knows it. As to your defense of Kamala Harris, you need to get a grip. I wouldn't mind her humping people for promotions if she was actually competent at her job, but the majority of the people have caught on that she is a total fraud. Cardi and Kamala are birds of a feather. And I'm sorry if that hurts your little feelings. But those are the facts. ************************************************************************************
  16. ************************************************************************************ Cardi B was a stripper who DRUGGED and ROBBED men. After she invited them to her hotel room. But you want to split hairs as to whether or not she was a PROSTITUTE. Odds are that a woman who dances in the nude has a higher propensity towards PROSTITUTION than one who does not. Especially when she admitted to DRUGGING and ROBBING men. But a nerd like you probably could not draw that simple conclusion. Cardi B explains why she drugged and robbed men Kamala Harris slept with Willie Brown whilst he was a married man, and he promoted her and that advanced her career, and you want me to prove that she slept her way up the career ladder. I posted this already on the other thread, the one that you are trying to pretend you did not see. Kamala Harris had an affair with powerful Willie Brown Grow the fuck up and stop being so lame. ************************************************************************************
  17. ************************************************************************************ Right, because Cardi B has such a stellar and impeccable reputation that she needed to sue somebody for calling her a prostitute. Which, BTW, she was. Cardi B explains why she drugged and robbed men Why don't you get your facts straight before you post a bunch of stupid nonsense. ************************************************************************************
  18. ************************************************************************************ Trump's penthouse apartment is a tri-plex. If each level is 10,000 square feet, then wouldn't that equal 30,000 square feet of living space? ************************************************************************************
  19. ************************************************************************************ Why in the world would I need to provide proof of something that is common knowledge, and something that Kamala Harris admitted to her own self? KAMALA HARRIS HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A MARRIED MAN ************************************************************************************
  20. ************************************************************************************ @Stefan You seem to have a very serious case of TDS. Every time you post you inject some derogatory comment about him. Honestly, I don't think about Trump any more than I think about anything else. And I don't speak for others but I doubt that Nels is thinking about Trump either. What is it with you and Trump. Are you jonesing for him or what??? ************************************************************************************
  21. ************************************************************************************ This is not about a few Black men not dressing how others want them to. I was making the observation that when Black people dress inappropriately, it makes it difficult for them to become successful, financially independent, contributing members of society. I seriously doubt that someone who can't even be bothered to pull their own pants up, is anybody's role model. Besides that, we must take into account the one bad apple effect. This sort of behaviour reflects poorly on all Black people, whether we admit it, deny it, or attempt to ignore it. When another Black woman goes to the grocery store, or wherever, with her breasts and/or derriere exposed, it signals to the other races that Black women have no self-respect, and that we are easy lays. People can be individuals without engaging in conduct that reflects poorly upon the rest of us. ************************************************************************************

  23. ************************************************************************************ @daniellegfny That is a very valid point that hadn't occurred to me before. Thank you for your wisdom(s). ************************************************************************************
  24. ************************************************************************************ I don't like to tell other grown people what to do about their offsprings, but obviously all your "talks" didn't have an impact on him. When I first started reading your post I was thinking that they were doing that the whole time, sagging. I didn't even know there was a word for that. I just call it pants hanging down. Anyway, I have a son, my only child. He is in his forties now. I been through it with that boy so I have some first-hand experience. I won't even go into what all happened with him because I would be here all day telling that story. If he disrespected me the way yours did to you, when he got out of the car to pump the gas, I would have drove off and left his Black sagging pants hanging down sorry ass standing there trying to figure out how to get back home. And then I would have cancelled all my funding for his education since that seems to have been a waste, then I would have put his ass out of my house. That way he could see how far he gets in life sagging his pants and all the other juvenile delinquent things they do. Because they don't understand talking to. Sometimes you have to demonstrate through actions, even if it hurts and breaks your own heart. Years ago I drove my Husband to the Veteran's hospital for a doctor's appointment, and he was arguing with me about something or the other, I don't even remember what it was. We hadn't been married that long at the time, probably less than a year. We had known each other for a long time, over twenty years before we got married. But just as friends. After he got out of the car I drove back home without him. He made his way home and I promise you, he didn't argue or talk back to me nearly as much after that because he got the point that I don't allow people to disrespect me. We were all young once and didn't know better. That is part of life and maturing. And it is different from grown women who have the means to do better, to be out here dressed like common trash. I was fortunate, from an early age my Mother dressed me well. I got to order things from the catalogs as well as shopping in person at nice clothing stores. Not upscale dress shops, but regular shops at the mall like Lerner's. If you remember that. I also learned to sew from my Aunt, who was a master seamstress, I can make my own clothes from patterns and finished clothes, as well as tailoring store bought items. Sewing is an important skill that more women should practice. Most women don't own a sewing machine these days and that's too bad. Early in my adulthood, someone gave me several silk dresses, and that began my collection of silk outfits that I'm still working on today. Silk pieces will last a lifetime if cared for properly and if you maintain your size. Once I was on my own and started my career working for the federal government, at the age of 22, I began curating my professional wardrobe. I typically wore dresses and skirt suits to the office. Sometimes I wore pant suits, but not that much. I bought some things that were "trendy" when I first started buying my own clothes, but I quickly caught on that trends change and read a couple of book on how to select and purchase quality clothes in classic styles. You choose natural fabrics like silk, cotton, wool, cashmere, linen, and blends. Some manmade and natural blends are acceptable if it makes the item easier to care for, wrinkle resistant, etc. You should ensure that the seams are straight, fabric patterns line up, buttons and button holes are good quality, and obviously you want the clothes to fit correct and hang properly. And of course you want your clothes to be comfortable and suit your style. The other thing that I have learned over the years is that you don't have to spend a ton of money to have a nice wardrobe. You can find things on clearance, on sale, you can find nice things at consignment shops, eBay, etc. Most of my clothes I bought brand new, but I did get some designer outfits from consignment shops and I got some really good deals. In case you are not familiar with consignment shops, that is where rich people take their gently worn clothes, some things they never even wore at all still has the tags, and that way they can get a few dollars from it as opposed to just throwing it in the trash. I would take that stuff to the dry cleaners and it would be good as brand new. Once you decide how you want to present yourself, it's not that hard to find quality clothes that you can be proud to wear, and that attract attention and admiration for the right reasons. ************************************************************************************
