After all that, after reporting his Monologue @ The Barbershop... Why does he feel compelled to lead and beg for Black people to consider his "disagreement" in some certain way? I mean, that's clearly not something that's reciprocated. He definitely made no allowances for the sentiments, thoughts and philosophies of the barber, the clientele or "WE BLACKS." That's one thing I'll never understand. He wants to play [WHITE] Devil's Advocate then wants to beg people to not consider him a...

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...

How is this RELEVANT to what BLACK PEOPLE NEED TO DO to educate our children? If Whites are pulling their kids out of Black public schools and home schooling them IS THIS IN AND OF ITSELF GROUNDS FOR OPPOSING HOME SCHOOLING FOR BLACK KIDS? You are a FUNCTION of White Folks Nmaginate. You can't find yourself until the WHITE MAN makes his move. In the equation "Y = -1 * X" You are the Y and you can't define yourself unti the White man's X has a value placed within. Shameful.

Re: Larry Elder: blacks and republicans

Huey ·
Elder is a disgrace. It's easy for him to excuse the past, since he was born and raised in South Central L.A. instead of the Deep South. He never faced hardcore racism in California, like many faced in Alabama and Mississippi. It's a shame a black man in his 50s can disregard Jim Crow, who was alive to see Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, can still act racially naive.

Like Black Viking, I am not anti-PC, but I am anti-censorship. Whether or not I find the comic offensive, I think that a publication has the right to print it and I believe that individuals have the right to protest against it non-violently. I support their right to censure (express harsh criticism of the picture) but not to censor (control the press, speech, artistic expression). Free expression to my mind is integral to democratic society. Personal anecdote: I was a chaplain in NYC when...

Wow! What made you so upset Empty?? I'll say this about that. Education, any grade or level is what you make it. There are many opprotunities to learn inside and outside of the classroom. Some great examples of this are people like J.A. Rogers, Malcolm X and George Washington Carver. Don't limit yourself. There are lots of great books and people out there who can help you gain an education.

Rome's knowledge was based on Greece. Greece stole/borrowed all of it's knowledge from KMT(Egypt/Africa) and perverted/twisted much of it because they were only students...hence X-tianity. The greek scholars/philosophers were actually KMTic school drop outs, they did not complete the 42 years of training and get baptized into the knowledge systems. Athens was originally a Kemetic/Kamau colony.
