True slavery has existed longer than freeedom. In fact, slavery have been HERE in the world since the beginning of time-which includes EVERYBODY....Europeans too. But! The difference in African slavery I see opposed to others who have been enslaved are the facts that we were/are the ONLY ones targeted and specificially taken from our lands for sole purposes of profit and sex. Hence the ideology of being a degraded form of chattel property. African women and children have always been on the...

I do admire Belafonte for all these years still being a person that will actually come out against injustice and racism without regard to what it may or may not do to his career, and for even being a person who could just as well sit in his comfy life and just ignore plight of anyone not in his own family or his own circle, but he chose not to just sit and ignore and be a hear not evil, see no evil, speak no evil Negro. But, your response, Koco, was really on point. I really think that you...

Thank you for that my sista. Through the years, I've self-published a few books: poetry and essays mostly. But! After the death of my son, my focus changed. And there was a need for me to incorporate my knowledge to the youngsters. So I developed many after school programs to teach writing, literacy, composition and such to those uninformed teens who think they know it all. For a good while, I hated adult black people....it took me almost ten years to finally heal from the anger of...

Your welcome Koco, and I really meant it. Also, I think that many, many African American feel frustration and even anger towards the African Americans out there that are just a big weight on the Black community, I know I have. But, then I have to think about how little I knew when I was young and that most of what I know now and have learned about our history in this country, African history, American politics, racism, the politics of psychological and social manipulation, etc., I had to...

Thank you for asking my sista. My feeling of abandonment came from my son being gunned down in front of a least 40 morning commuters whom merely swirved around his body as he fell to the ground like he was road kill. No one called the police. No one stopped their cars. He just laid there dying. No one saw him as maybe someone who could be one of their children-a son. Or maybe a family member. Their inhumane ignorance of a "child" laying in the middle of the street demonstrated to me how...

Koco, I am so sorry. I am almost speechless. It's unbelievable that human beings can even have it in them to do something like that. I'm gonna have to mentally digest that for a while. I am so sorry. I'm glad you found the strength to soldier on to help someone else, to try to save other people's children in the face of how everything when down with your son.

I don't know what a "white nationalist" is, but it sure would be cooler than cool if all these fuckers, the Klan, Neo Nazis, Haters, Nationalists and all the rest of them marched their asses back to Ellis Island and got on the first boat smoking back to Europe or wherever the hell else they came from including the caves and took their dog cousins and Rheses monkeys with them.

President Obama is going to have to dig down deep to top what his wife just did. Probably in the history of American first ladies speeches and first ladies around the world, arguably one of the best ever if not the best. In the Obama household, Michelle has bragging rights...and she knows it. And Republicans heads are exploding everywhere.

And to me it seemed like the First Lady pretty much picked apart Ann Romney's speech ... anecdote by anecdote ... and CRUSHED Ann like a GRAPE ... when it came to telling the more compelling, more thorough, more truthful story about the virtues of their respective husbands and the life they "built" together!! While Ann Romney skirted around details .... Michelle went in deep and was able to give real life comparisons of what it means to "struggle to make ends meet" .. because she and the...

All of our "leaders" are either burned out, deceased or sold out, with the latter being the state of the majority. The majority of African American politicians, just like the majority of Democrats have been busy doing the bidding of their campaign "donors" to our detriment, and to the detriment of all democrat voters and America at large. With the exception of a few, our so-called 'leaders' have been doing nothing but selling out African American interests to the oligarchs, just the same as...

Yeah, everybody and their mama is running for president. However, Kamala Harris will just be the a more intelligent Black equivalent to Trump or another republican democrat puppet. Besides, I meant what I said about these 1st generation [or less] Black immigrants; people who did not have to pay any dues because they arrived here after African Americans had already paved the road smooth [or a little smoother] before they ever set foot in this racist country.
