I came out of retirement like MJ and Deion. Or more like Puxtauny Phil of Ground Hog Fame. I came out of my hole in the ground and I saw the same thing.

I'm an odd bird. On the one hand, I'm a very rational person. Extremely logical. And naturally given to healthy doses of skepticism. I find it impossible to be religiously dogmatic. But at the same time, I have certain marked mystical tendencies. At age 11, I read a book by Albert Einstein called "Ideas and Opinions". It had a very profound influence. I became agnostic after that. I remember deciding that I no longer believed in Jesus and told my parents that I didn't want anything for...

EbonyRose, now that you've brought this up, it did have more participants than the one in Atlanta. Unfortunately for the people who had to speak after Min. Farrakhan, it did seem like the audience and the spirit left after he did. What I didn't like was that they were, except Harry Belafonte, disagreeing with him when he wasn't there to defend himself. Another thing that I did like was the fact that he did bring up the spiritual side of the issue, when the two other ministers on the panel...

I was born and raised in South Central Los Angeles, in the town of Watts. In regards to the Black/Mestizo situation, I've noticed a few things: When Mestizos are a very small minority in a predominantly Black area, no one pays them any mind. In fact, many of the middle aged and older Black women will often be very friendly, and be a little sympathetic b/c the Mestizos (in this phase) are usually very poor, have many children, and don't speak English. This is my experience, so I don't want to...

Sometimes it's a matter of developers looking for the cheapest land to buy. Especially in Atlanta, with people moving further & further out of the city & surburbs (I think they're called Exurbs now!), you're bound to encroach on areas designated for waste burial/processing. I think it is more classism because many of these communities are priced at the first-time buyer level.

HonestBrother, you have every right to your opinion about this being pointless but to others, it's of ultimate importance. You say the word "Amen" is possibly not of Egyptian origin. Like I said, I'm a man of facts. Just show me when and where it was used before Egypt and I'll accept it. I couldn't begin to give you every scripture in the bible that pays homage to Egyptian Deities because there are so many but I could probably give you a good 20 off the top of the dome, if you would like.

Hey HB, don't forget about the Hindu God Krishna (as in Christ or Kristian/Christian), which also was combined with the ancient Egyptian word Karest, which means anointed, he was also a son of God who was crucified for the people. Have you ever seen a picture of Krishna? Look it up on the web. Pretty interesting that the picture that the Hindu created of Krishna, looks exactly like the picture that Micheal Angelo (Michael God's Angel, in Greek the word Angelos means angel) drew of Jesus.
