"I'm kinda offended with the words" weakness into opportunity." Who's weak? America's economy?" *********************************************************** That's what I was thinking. For turning what "weakness" into what "opportunity" ? I would have never expected "code" from Time Magazine, but hey, America having its first Black president caused countless numbers of businesses, media sources, entities, etc.'s, dormant isms to resurface.

Unfortunately I didn't renew my Time magazine subscription this time around so I won't be able to read the whole story .... But .... I would think that that statement would be a reference to the economy!! And that that is EXACTLY what the President did with it!! The way I see it ..... we were being flushed down the "economic toilet" (the weakness). We are now treading (at least chest-high) in it ... rather than drowning altogether (the opportunity).

Now that woman had a voice! She was my favorite during her time. Ooh la la la was the jam....as was Young Love. But! Portugese Love[r] made my toes curl in dance. I remember her voice so clearly.....and that's when folks really could "sang." I am wondering what the story is behind her unexpectable death. How tragic for her daughter. She will be soley missed. Teena...sistagirl you did good. May you rest in peace.

"Now that woman had a voice! She was my favorite during her time." Agreed. She was a fantastic singer. I'm still reeling from the fact that she is dead. She was one of my favorite vocalists also. She had a wonderful soulful voice. The woman had a lot of soul and a tremendous talent (writer and composer -she wrote 14 of her 15 recordings). In fact, I ordered about four of her CDs a few years ago that I was missing. Hard to believe Rick James and Teena are both gone. They made incredible ...

This is a mirror to see how white men/people feel about Africans in America, period. They're fired, they're still free roam amongst the population with those hateful feelings intact. They've felt as a race of immigrants, that we were savages when the ancestors stepped off the ships and before Africans boarded the ships. To the White man, nothing lives in Africa BUT SAVAGES. Nothing's changed; nothing's going to change. When you peel back the mask of America, for us underlies the skull of...

I'm afraid that you are correct about what it's going to take to change all this, which means that a lot more lives will probably have to be sacrificed. But, isn't that what happens in all WARS.

You are absolutely on point with describing white nationalism and white supremacy as a problem all across America. The cops are essentially militarized Klan.
