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...

"Women think with their vaginas"???? Puh-leeeeeeeze.... YOUNG women, maybe... who tragically, mistakenly think they don't have anything else to offer. Women with sense (and class) do NOT think this way AT ALL.

This was good advice... Also Sandyes additions, gave much food for thought.

I don't like anyone tampering with food - whether it's adding Iron to Smart Milk, 'for our-own-good' by our 'trusted friends' the manufacturers, or GM crops and ingredients. I am vehemently opposed to Genetically Modified food, it's control and lack of real accountability and transparency. Britian seems smarter than everyone else when it comes to being watchful and voicing their concerns about being forced to consume a GM lifestyle. Keep your eye on the ball and on the product packaging. .

Writing as a former Janitor--I agree with Sister qty226. Black women should not settle for a "limited blue-collar-type." By no means--besides, there are plenty of women form other cultures who have no prob with an "average man". --So, when you see these Blue-collar, uneducated, limited Blackmen with those "other women"...don't complain.

I'm not anti-fasting but it does need to be done carefully and mindfully. Just fasting to release toxins and going back to a crappy diet is a waste of time. As a kick start to a new healthy eating regime it's good. You need to ease into and exit a fast with a lot of care. And a fast IMHO should only last 8hrs, not several days. Exercise is the best way to release toxins and fix stress. If you combine it with good food then great! But even a not-so-good diet with exercise is better than a...

Have to agree with you on this one, EP. For the most part, colleges and universities are institutions of conformity.

And in this society, the reflection is capitalism and power. For US colleges and universities, government funding, corporate funding, private grants, and alumnae contributions, pretty much spell status quo.
