You know what? This is what I don't get. Why would a hospital have food that is not good for human consumption? That would be the last place....right? And yet you go into the cafeteria and find hot dogs, sausages, links, bolonga, bacon etc all for the serving. First, we need to start with health professionals who are buying this stuff and feeding it to patients and the visitors. Make them accountable. What? They're trying to STAY in business? I think this is a CRIME. We have the ability to...

Is Father’s Day a Second Mother’s Day? June 21, 2015 | Posted by Tracy Day By Bekitembe Eric Taylor A Hallmark Mahogany card titled “For You, Mom, on Father’s Day” has drawn the line between being a stereotype of absentee fatherhood in the Black community and robbing dads of their special day. There have even been posts on Facebook warning women that they will be blocked or deleted as friends if they wish themselves Happy Father’s Day. How could a $4 card cause so much controversy?

Yep I agree! And that's one of the reasons why DMV's new technology doesn't work. Why? Depending on the internet and high tech to do something that can be DONE manually. To me, folks just don't wanna work anymore. They are getting lazy in their thinking and performance. Cuz why? Letting computers do all the critical thinking and technical performance for them. Not good. DMV didn't listen until it started costing them money. When will we listen? When computers start mixing up horse meat with...

That's probably what they want them to do, so that the property value can be depreciated down to $0.00, so it can be bought-up by non-Black people/business, or corporations for damn near $0.00 and quickly 'gentrified' into racially discriminating and/or unaffordable to Black/Brown people, residential and business districts.

No one’s going to build a Mar-a-Lago with lead water piped in. These poisoned people need re-location from this hell zone - yesterday. The state and federal governments should pay for this EMERGENCY . Tax cuts for the rich but no money and nowhere to go without assistance. Deadly crime on top of deadly crime. Inaction makes it purposeful genocide.

Of course, once the Blacks are "exterminated" Flints water will be put back on the same water system as the rest of the cities and town surrounding flint, and pipes that do not have lead leaching into the water. [Side: If the people living in Flint are only being tested for Lead , they are crazy, because there was far more than just 'lead' in that nasty, toxic, CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY , water].

We all know that rich and wealthy African Americans are not going to do jack for their own people. They are just as sickening as the Black politicians, Black attorneys, and the Congressional Black Caucus , who sit around too much like little hear-no-evil, see-no-evil, speak-no-evil trained 'pets' to even speak out against the extra-judicial murders of Black males, and Black females, and even Black children in this country.

The racist corporate establishment knows this, which is why they told their political servants to stop creating policy that invests in rank and file Americans. They want a permanent working poor class and a permanent criminal class too so they may profit from despair while white people are lifted and given more opportunities through white privilege.

With UNIFICATION of a family, and/or group and/or community, when it's obvious that what she is/was doing is not working, there is someone else to step in with ideas, influence, time, wisdom. advice, or some de facto "scared straight" psychology or realism where deviant/troubled young males/ youth are concerned.
