Black people don't realize or want to admit that centuries of enslavement and colonization served to program the Black psyche for centuries to come. Lack of empathy, division and indifference is part of the programming . It ensures that this one race of people will NEVER realize that they are one Race on this planet that needs to Unite regardless of differences in nationality, religion, culture and class. Indifference to the same oppression and suffering and struggle of others is also part...

Exactly my sista! Now does that make ANY sense? 2% of the population in control of 98% of the population. Somethin' WRONG!!!! Very wrong. And not one black celebrity or black entreperteur[sp] is willing to invest in the post slavery or post civil rights of black people. Not one. I wonder what we lost in all the commotion that keeps us from saving ourselves. What is it? But!

What she "ripped out" is way beyond a "chunk." What would have happened to her had she done this to a beautiful blond blue eyed child?? Someone would see she'd soon be pushing up daisies and not a word would ever be expressed about the situation. Maybe some black folks need to get hep/hip (whatever). People are no longer people; they're now surpassing beasts!!!!!!! The beasts are tripping over each other to get out of the way of what the 2 legged of all colors have become.
