To set the record STRAIGHT....cuz you know neanderthals have NO clue where they come from...as a result they have been lying and lying and making things up. But lemme say this for clarity. It is Asians/Europeans who evolved from neanderthal via apes! It is AFRICANS who evolved from modern humans via homosapians sapians. Do not BELIEVE racist whiteboys....look at behavior!

During my tirade here, we know that Africans are the only population not descended from Neanderthals and are decscended from homo sapiens which makes us homo sapien sapien (I see you have been reading Dr. Cheik Anta Diop). The information that he put out back in the 1960's thru the 1980's has been proven to be 100% correct by 'modern' science. Also, we know him today as the Geico caveman, as they are always trying to clean up their beastly subhuman image.

How Oklahoma almost became a black state By Julie Bisbee • Modified: February 29, 2008 at 1:18 am • Published: February 29, 2008 In the late 1800s, the red-dirt territory that was to become Oklahoma was the land of exile and hope. American Indians, removed from their lands in the eastern United States, had taken up residence in the state, establishing towns and sophisticated societies in the eastern part of what was then known as Oklahoma Territory. While black people, some held as slaves,...

48 states have laws preventing 4.4 million Americans from voting. They are formerly incarcerated individuals who have completed their sentences. But they’re also husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, business owners and vital members of communities all over the country.

This felony voter disenfranchisement issue has been on the table for a while and honestly in the past got little attention. People who have been convicted of a non-felony crime should not believe that they don't have the right to vote. In Houston for at least the 5 years (probably more), there has been a low-key campaign to advise non felon ex-convicts in the black community that they do indeed have the right to vote.

Many of the states that have these laws against "felons" voting, it is often only while they are serving time or are on probation or parole . Many people with felony convictions do not know that once they are no longer incarcerated and no long on probation or parole, they can vote just like anyone else. I will give you that, if you violate the law, you give up most privileges, including the right to vote, but once you have paid your debt to society your privileges should be reinstated, and...

When you read the words "slaves", "slave hunters", "slavery", "white oppressors", seems all the gangs of humanity that enforced/still enforce these vile deeds, should have been/should be locked up in the nearest mental institutions, never again being allowed to roam the earth. Truth be told, these people were/are severely mentally ill. It's really all about CONTROL and FORCE of fellow human beings with all kinds of weaponry applied to their bodies, if they refuse to comply.

This is the schism in African American thought, between neo-liberalism and nationalism. All Kobe said he ain't the type to jump to conclusions because if America is like they say it is, then we shouldn't base it on race/ethnicity. And he uses the doctrine of liberalism to explain his position. And African Americans get pissed, even though majority of African Americans are liberals all the way of some stripe. It's funny.
