  1. @Delano I would have thought Goolge paying me would would have been explanation enough. In fact, Google has paid me far more than Amazon -- some periods up to 10 times as much. I have to use Google to understand how my site ranks. As a monopoly, Google controls which sites are discoverable through organic search. If I ignore AALBC's relative positioning on their search engine I risk AALBC's viability as a revenue generating website. As far as queries unrelated to AALBC, it would be too cumbersome to have another search engine, say DuckDuckGo, as my default search engine, when the majority of queries I run are related to AALBC or Black books. Does that help?

    Making money trumps (pardon the pun) serving the community everyday of the week. Johnson made it clear the "E" stood for "entertainment," not enlightenment or education. The reality is that it stood for enrichment, Johnson's personal enrichment, and that is the legacy of BET.

    @Delano, do you use a Crystal Ball? I was in a place in ATL called Ponce de leon plaza (It think) and any rate it was a pretty cool place with trendy stores and eateries. It also had one of these new agey store you now see every where. They had all manner of crystals incense and related paraphernalia. What caught my eye thought were th tarot card they had. Some were quite beautiful. I almost purchased a set for this reason. The also have joke tarot cards too. (this stuff has become so commercialized) I listened to the sales woman described the different ones as if any lay person could use them. They also had the CBD oil which is like herb without the THC which seems like gin without the alcohol -- as in what is the point... I know that was a wide digressions from the subject... The store also had a real crystal ball (not glass).

    Yeah Mary does not play ๐Ÿ™‚ She had been publishing books for years and was/is one of Kensington's most popular authors. here is another video of Mary, that was filmed in my home when I lived in Harlem. The video is at least 10 years old. The chaise lounge Abiola is sitting on in now in my bedroom in FL -- man so much has changed in my life since this video was shot. Mary (both women) continue to adapt over the years.

    @Cynique I guess you remember went Aretha first emerged what was that like? I saw her perform once -- long past her prime, See was complaining about the audience not having white castle hamburgers, which she said she ordered for everyone. I think she was serious too ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Chevdove I would discourage you from using Christianity to understand science -- then you'll get really confused. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I never heard of a Zorse either ๐Ÿ™‚ I see it is one of many different Zebroids. You learn something new everyday ๐Ÿ™‚

    I never hear of a Liger before. I assume they can not mate, like mules. @Chevdove, it is not like a have an degree in genetics. But the issues of race and genetics is of interest to me and I think I have a good understanding of the basics. [1] By your first question are you implying that Black and white people have different blood? [2] Sure science changes if they discover new information they update what they know. SOmetimes the new information is radical and people refuse to adopt it for some reason or another. There are people who believe man and dinosaurs roamed the earth together, but this is because they believe the earth was created 6,000 years ago. [3], [4], and [5] OK
