These were essential to enable the former slaves to become self-reliant and build wealth. Land is the universal language of wealth in every continent on the earth. In an Agrarian society which the United States was in 1865 when...

Not me. The Census will be hiring about a half million people short term next year, for the enumeration process. Maybe that is the economic turnaround they are predicting for next year.

Yeah ... I remember there was a MAJOR media blitz for the last 2000 Census!! In particular, they were trying to target the Hispanic population (esp. the illegal immigrants) by saying that ALL they wanted to do was take a count ... and that no other authorities would be called/alerted to their presence. This advertisement seems to be targeting African Americans ... and I'm sure they probably have one for Asians, Native Americans, Whites and Hispanics, as well.

FYI: the teabagger and right wing conservonut types are influencing their peeps to comply only minimally, if at all, with the census. I hear this on the radio all the time. They only want to tell the number of people in the home and not give the rest of the data that is generally gathered with the census. I would assume this is part of that "fear of becoming the minority/fear of socialism/fear of big government" thingy...

I definitely plan on being counted and giving any information that they need. Last time they did the census I was living in Tejas and the lady got the minimal information. Not this time.

I think it's a good article on a subject that is way over due to be discussed honestly by the Black community, because it is beyond time that Black women "take control of how we are portrayed in the media", and it's beyond time that Black people stop allowing Hollywood, the Media, Rap Videos, and Television to STEREOTYPE every all or predominately Black community as "Ghetto", and every person living in an all or predominately Black community or a certain tax bracket as "Ghetto".

I agree with some of it...especially the part about having MORE black writers writing in the true image of black girl. Changed the name...carefree cuz it's no such THANG....not even for white girls....I call it gullible living in a world that is not that nice to women. So create your own image in terms of who you are as a woman...first and black second.

Maybe I didn't make it clear that I'm agreeing with those who are criticizing the so-called "care-free Black girl" for trying to stereotype ALL other Black women and/or specifically Black women (and girls) from lower tax brackets and/or the so-called "Ghetto". Anyway, "care-free" is an attitude or a personality trait that has nothing to do with which "tax-bracket" you come from, or your educational level. Besides, anyone that truly (or NATURALLY) possesses a "care-free" attitude/personality...

All the white men on TV these days look like they're either going to or coming from the nearest or farthest mental institutions. They ALL look mentally retarded. Such ugly, wrinkled, men fathered by white men. There's NOTHING superior nor supremacist that appears anywhere on my TV. They'd all look better in their hoods and sheets. That would be the pure white they're searching for with a passion. Dear White Men: I'm not talking about Roy Moore "passion." That's pedophile jazz and razzmatazz.

Corporate Democrats want to get in on looting the country too just like Republicans are doing on a scale of TRILLIONS! The tax cut is not 1.5 Trillion it is 6 Trillion did any of you knew that? Now ask why it is not common knowledge? They are transferring 6 trillion in tax cuts to the rich and corporations and raising 4.5 trillion from average Americans while leaving 1.5 trillion unaccounted for so they can say the country cannot afford Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and will be an...

That's what happens when we're not in charge of our own lives. Our entire black lives are dependent upon these creeps in the Disunited States of America. There's nothing we can do about anything as far as we're concerned. NOTHING!! We're dependent upon the Ku Klux Klan and that's the bottom line, the middle line and the top line.
