  1. A word we said had been buried....why are we resurrecting a word that means someone is going to die at the hands of their oppressor. Clarence is a mocking bird, I recall a book entitle: To Kill A Mocking Bird. Clarence represents self-hate. Lets not join him. The word has been buried. The Bible says...let the dead bury themselves (dry bones) me must struggle forward if we are to struggle. My goal is living. LOL
  2. Their National Anthem... "And where is that band who so vauntingly swore, That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion A home and a Country should leave us no more? Their blood has wash'd out their foul footstep's pollution. No refuge could save the hireling and slave From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave, And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave." Our National Anthem.... Stony the road we trod, Bitter the chast’ning rod, Felt in the days when hope unborn had died; Yet with a steady beat, Have not our weary feet Come to the place for which our fathers sighed? We have come over a way that with tears has been watered. We have come, treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered, Out from the gloomy past, Till now we stand at last Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast. interesting....
  3. A wealth of knowledge has left the people, his spirit is now a part of the universe. Mr. Gregory has joined our circle of ancestors.
  4. How far have we come from the revelations, speculations, stereotypes, and evaluations that are given about us and the labels were give to ourselves. "In our world, however, extremes quickly meet. Sumner believed it “the greatest folly of which man can be capable to sit down with a slate and pencil and plan out a new social world,” a point of view containing little hope for the underdog. But for all his good works, some of Park’s assumptions were little better. The Negro, he felt, “has al-ways been interested rather in expression than in action; interested in life itself rather than in its reconstruction or reformation. The Negro is, by natural disposition, neither an intellectual nor an idealist, like the Jew; nor a brooding introspective, like the East Indian; nor a pioneer and frontiersman, like the Anglo-Saxon. He is primarily an artist, loving life for its own sake. His m’tier is expression rather than action. He is, so to speak, the lady among the races.”
  5. “Each person’s destiny is not a matter of chance; it’s a matter of choice. It’s determined by what we say, what we do, and whom we trust.” – Truett Cathy (Founder of Chick fil A)
  6. Each person’s destiny is not a matter of chance; it’s a matter of choice. It’s determined by what we say, what we do, and whom we trust.” Quite a powerful message. How do we become "Change Agents" for people who need the most help, first. Most of these people are our people. People who are not considered white.
  7. The people who have the ability to begin the problem solving process, focusing on helping the the people who need help most, first could eliminate this problem tomorrow, but do not have the will to do so, and the people who have the will to do so, do not have the ability. Keep picking up the books and maybe reading some of the books will allow people who are not white to again begin the problem solving process.
  8. Each person’s destiny is not a matter of chance; it’s a matter of choice. It’s determined by what we say, what we do, and whom we trust.” Quite a powerful message. I stopped to eat at a restaurant and sat by the window so I could watch the people passing by on the street. There were literally hundreds of people milling around and waiting in line. Amid all the confusion and traffic, a delivery man was pushing a cart stacked high with boxes. He was trying to navigate the cart delicately through all the crowds of people dashing by. No one took much time to notice him. As he pushed the cart down a slight curb, four of the boxes toppled over onto the street. People kept walking by either ignoring him or making a face because they were aggravated that he was in the way. The delivery man was struggling to balance the other boxes and maintain the cart at the same time, but it was impossible. Finally, a young man in his twenties stopped and offered to help. The young man picked up the boxes and balanced them on the man’s cart. No one asked him to help. He did it out of the goodness of his heart. He did it to be kind. He did it because he wants the world to be a better place – the kind of place where strangers take the time to help each other. That’s how I want us to be too. Let us not accept our destiny as a matter of chance; let us make a choice to help those who need us. Let us take the lead in saying and doing the things that make this world –a better place. Justice, helping those who need the most help, first.
  9. We continue to talk about the symptoms because we are continuously mistreated by ourselves and others... becasue of white supremacy/racism however we continue to wear the mask. When we remove the mask what is left....the problem or the answer? let's travel this road most are interested....we want change....
  10. After all of the protesting and violence over the last five years to stir up people about the gaps in income inequality, Blacks are still the poorest of the poor and Whites are now officially on notice of the imminent economic destruction of White civilization. “Federal regulators say five of the biggest banks in the U. S. failed to develop adequate plans for how they might reshape themselves in case of bankruptcy, which could leave them unable to survive without another taxpayer bailout,” Associated Press reported April 14, 2016. Once again we have evidence that skin color, not money, is the key to survival. That is why our focuses on how self-empowerment Blacks can lead our community away from the almost certain devastation. Your thoughts....
  11. Cynthia ....the sharing of mates will not work in a system of white supremacy/racism, it is against the law. Our ancestors were able to share mates and it was with in our culture. CD....what do we have....we do not own anything...BET..gone, EBONY/JET...gone, Essence....gone... Black banks....gone we are pawns on a white supremacy/racism chessboard, how do we begin the problem solving process to overcome....
  12. It appears that all comments and statements are addressing the symptoms of White Supremacy/Racism. We see the symptoms, with the pictures submitted by one of your veteran members. The question again is how do we begin the process of becoming problem solvers. Our ancestors were problem solvers and then came white supremacy/racism......
  13. Trust me when I say to you that if you investigate this matter in a serious matter you will be able to answer the aforementioned question of ‘What would America be without her Slaves /Negroes/Blacks?’ “Nothing!!!!!!” because she would not even exist were it not for the contributions of enslaved Africans. We are a proud people who built a nation without any directions. We are the only people/culture who freed ourselves without a war or bomb....Looking back to bring forth.....
