Re: Are Today's Women Deserving Of Marriage

You can still have love, but that should not be the foundation that the relationship is standing on. The concept of love just does'nt have the muscle to carry the weight.

Re: Marcus Garvey Was A Colonialist

Empty Purnata ·
Marcus Garvey supported a Back-To-Africa movement which supported African-Americans moving to Africa and using Liberia as a home state. Of course, knowing the history of Liberia, this translated to establishing African-American settlements even against the will of the Native West Africans. African-American settlers into Liberia behaved very similarly to European colonialists. They displaced the natives against their will, and used Western backing to establish Western social order.

Credibility in both African America, and America as a whole. Russell Simmons is admired for his creativity, AND community activism, not to mention his business acumen. He carries with him the baggage of the rap industry as well. Not only would he have to defend, explain, deny, every act of misconduct and statement of that industry, but so would every other official and member of the entire organization. The NAACP should not play that. PEACE Jim Chester

The objective of the president's position is to be the external mouthpiece of the organization NOT to run it internally. That's what Julian Bond is doing. The president needs to be able to galvanize folks in the black community and outside to accomplish the goals of the organization. If the NAACP sees it as a critical objective to capture the youth of our community, then someone like Russell might make sense.

Well, he has the ear of plenty of heavyweights from heads of state to CEO's to governors. You may be right that he is not the right person, but I love the out-of-the box thinking which produced his name for consideration. Plus, remember, Julian Bond remains the chairman. He certainly has the gravitas that I think you see lacking in Simmons. IMO - the organization badly needs some fresh, young, cerative blood that comes from outside of the present CR establishment.
