Re: Should Black People...

Yes, Black people should put white people's fears at ease. Instead of letting the poor white man suffer through an entire train ride, watching you and clutching his bag, just rob him blind as soon as you get on the train so you both can relax. Etc. None of us are easily separated from our misconceptions and stereotypes. If I spot a white man wearing dark clothing and a shaved head with tattoos on his body... he's a skinhead. If he doesn't attack me, he is a skinhead in a particularly...

CF's attitude towards Black Business dealing with White Business reminds me of Malcolm X's attitude towards White people in a scene of the movie "Malcolm X" with Denzel Washington. Malcolm X (still "Malcolm Little" at the time) was a teenager/young adult working on a train as a waiter having to serve White passengers. He walked around carrying food trays with a big smile on his face calling out what food he was carrying. A White navyman (this was shortly after WWII) asks for some food, and...

Thanks, D . It's my understanding that the aspirin prolongs the thermogenic effect. Not so? I'd prefer something with as little "buzz" as possible. Don't want to be a wreck at the office.

Sorry just seeing this, but DD gave a better summary than I could do. Yeah, you can't get the pure ephedrine HCL anymore.

As dd said, I don't think the aspirin is necessary in the stack. I have never used the preformulated varieties. I preferred the control and price of purchasing the E and C separately.

From Vox's "That's Right, I Said It!" Department... Any man or woman -- but especially women, for reasons I could discuss -- who complains, like QTY does, that the opposite sex doesn't want them for this reason or that, are consciously choosing to seek out opportunities to reinforce their complaint. They may want a man, but their desire to have a man is not as strong as their desire to complain about the men who don't want them. As a result, they devote more focus on the men to complain...

This maybe true.......but on the flip side, you have adults having unprotected sex all time.....and really, they should know better!! I think 'one' of the problems, is that parents arent teaching their children when they are young. You cant wait until a child becomes a teenager to talk about sex........and you must train both boys/girls!! My mom always said, that if she didnt train her children about sex........the streets would.

Hey you! Hope you enjoyed your "special day" *never call, you never write... * I agree that parents have to train kids early, but that training will only go so far. Once the kids become teenagers, they now have the capacity to process information and act upon it. We still have more teens who don't get pregnant/father children than do. That means that there is a smaller segment out there that is surrounded by information and visual examples but will *and I hate this saying* "do me". They...

The Jobs Bank has its origins in the tough times Detroit faced in the late 1970s and early 1980s. A spike in oil prices, a harsh recession and the first major assault from fuel-efficient Japanese cars hammered the Big Three and cost tens of thousands of union jobs. The UAW agreed to its first concessionary contracts in 1982 with the Big Three, which then made three out of every four vehicles sold in America.
