Re: Bill Moyers on "Confronting the Contradictions of America's Past"

Wow! I sure was impressed by this young man. He's the great-grandson of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. I watched this on Bill Moyer's website and twice here. This explains all the clamor of voter suppression. The African in America is forever criminalized in this system. Explains what our President is experiencing, stop and frisk, everything. I'm going to buy this gentlemen's book. So smart, handsome, intelligent is he.

Well, I accidentally purchased this book on Amazon's Kindle Cloud, whatever that is and I don't own a Kindle. Sunnubian, your reply posted in my hotmail. I was surprised at that, but happy. I don't know how to delete from Kindle Cloud, but I'm still going to buy that book. I'm not all that "computer savvy", but I manage enough. When I get into a pickle, it's major for me. Just reading the whole book in Kindle Cloud will make be blind, but I have it anyway.

I can ONLY speak for myself....I am MORE optimistic now [that we have BLACK president] than I EVER been since the death of my child-had lost all hope and confident not only in the judical system....but! Also in society as well. But! Despite the current wave we are challenged with today....I'sa feel soooooooooo good about the future. But! That's just me. Hal. La. Lu yer!

Well, I think it was a very well written article!! I would agree with everything it said!!! I also don't think there's anything wrong with being optimistic and having a positive outlook .... considering the alternative is to be pessimistic, negative and without hope. Considering where we've had to come from due to forced enslavement, Black people have pretty much ALWAYS had to be hopeful for a better day!! And thank God ... 'cause that's probably about the only way we've been able to achieve...

Well....there is some kind of psychosis happening in the black community. Its akin to the psychosomatic reaction from a placebo, otherwise known as the "Placebo effect". President O bomb a produces the placebo effect upon our people. It's evidenced by another study, earlier this year, which indicated that blacks believed they were doing better now than 5 years ago, depite all the data that shows a marked decline in our standard of living.

Actually, African Americans have always been pretty optimistic considering the circumstances that many of us live under and the totality of our history in America. We always believe that things will get better or at least that there is a possibility of things getting better. We definitely know that many thing are better than they were. If African Americans were not optimistic, or at least more optimistic than pessimistic, we would let the gross racism in this country stop us, yet we do not,...

Poverty solved."...."he demonstrates a fundamental lack of understanding on the ways in which poverty works".

Newt Gingrich is just a prime example of a Self-Hating White person; the White equivalent to the Self-Hating Black. Gingrich was born to a teen-aged mother who was very very briefly married to his father (probably was a shot-gun wedding) from a poor background. The only thing that saved Newt from the trailer park was the fact that his mother later married a military man after leaving and divorcing Newt's father. So, Newt is just the White version of the many Black people that make it out of...

" Also, my gripe with Melissa is the same I’d have with any black person who allows herself to be propped up by the Democrats to do their dirty work against Cornel West as he spoke on behalf of black, brown and poor people. Harris never proved that Dr. West was wrong – she only sought to discredit him and dismantle his voice. In that regard, she was no different from a slave using the master’s gun to kill the leader of the negro rebellion." I agree with this segment of Watkins' assessment.
