Re: My dad's barbershop -- and personal responsibility

I get so sick and tired of hearing this bs from this republican lawn jockey. He acts as if HIS father is the only Black person or Black man who did ALL these things in a racist society. Millions of Black people in America did the same things he says his father did, accomplished the same things, his father did, served in WWI/WWII/Vietnam/Etc., and did so in the mist of a racist nation with the only difference being other Black people go to work every day, graduate from school (or get a...

You have stated that Black people seem to be disproportionately targeted, as we seem to be in many negative occurrences. Surely you can see why these type of subjects would tend to make us a little nervous. We live in a country where the Black race has always been persecuted. There is absolutely no reason for us to believe that all of a sudden, men will get an attack of conscience and realize their unfair treatment of us. And so we will ever remain vigilante and guarded against a country...

What happen to having and being about Love first in this world. If you have love it can translate into a love of education, a love of character, a love of hope, etc That's alright with me. I accept us being this way. And I accept our rise to upliftment. And I accept our failures, embarassments, etc. But I dont accept that for MYSELF.

Re: Renunciation of Slavery and the Christian Faith

An interesting but not very unusual tale. The central issue I think is what ideas get put into kid's heads at a young age, before high school. A friend of mine had a grandmother who tried to make him become a minister. He accepted Christianity until his 20s but never wanted to be a minister. We are all of similar ages but I ended up with a somewhat peculiar perspective. I went to Catholic schools but I never got caught up in it. This sounds like something out of science fiction to me.

Re: Controversial Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke Resigns Without Explanation

I heard he is headed to the Trump's Administration. This is where greed lifts its ugly head in the black community. And the brother don't care he's black too. And it can happen to him...he sees what's happening all around him but it's about that power and almighty dollar. Like Foreman...Omarosa. To be honest....I'm kinda shocked and sad at the same time.

I do think it is passed by touch, through moisture on the skin. I do think if an infected person coughs or sneezes others can catch it. The fact it is a virus makes it very contagious because viruses are so small a mist of water can be packed with Ebola.
