I am not sure why I waste my time. I said NOTHING about getting reparations from Bush. Several weeks ago a frat brother of mine told me that Bush wasted billions in Iraq that he could have given to Black people as reparations. I asked him why is he so vocal about what "his enemy" has failed to do with his deficit spending to fund a war but he is so silent about what his friend has failed to do to pay the debt he owes to Blacks all the while having a SURPLUS. The end result for Black people...

So please explain where these reparations are going to come rom. This is something you're for? Am I correct? If you're for it, it will only come from the system as it presently exists (Democrat or Republican). Either that or you radically change the system. Which you don't seem to favor. But you disparage Democrats. That leaves the Republicans. But that means you're really * not * serious.

As a parent of two young school age boys I have seen this phenomenon first hand. Little white boys can swing from the ceiling and they are "cute". Let a little black boy do anything - exibiting energy and vibrance outside a very narrow prescribed box of behavior - and it's a problem. The elephant in the room is white racism against black children.

You must object to the above since you reject "control". Is there a way to protect and serve outside of control? Is there? I am a Fruit Of Islam serving in the Nation Of Islam. I cannot speak for other faiths, but I am certain that the NOI's doctrine is premised upon service, protection, and unity, among other things. What does Master Fard Muhammad have to do with this? I agree. Fortunately, the NOI makes no such claims. Kai

Yes. NOI may be premised on service, protection, and unity AMONG OTHER IDEAS. Are you going to tell me that NO other ideas are involved? And as for Fard Muhammad: Can't you friggin read??? . One of the ideas in addition to service, protection, and unity is that this man is God. And that's from the official NOI website.

I'll rephrase, then leave it be if the question is still unclear: How can a man be a "god, creating whatever he desires" if he is following the structure created by another man? Elsewhere, you commented on the corporate world and the law of nation/state and that a man following the structure of these was essentially a "renter". How is the man following Min. W. Fard or Royall not a "renter as well?

what is there to be skeptical about? Spending a little money in West African can only help us as a people. So what if Ghana wants to take advantage of its history to draw africans in the Diaspora home, its a good thing. As of right now we spend virtual every dime we make with non black people, so giving lets say 10% to Ghana or other African countries is a drop in the bucket to what we give Prada, Cadilac,Polo, Nike etc

I certainly think that is what George Bush believes... particularly after viewing a doco about George and his 'dialogue with God'. I'm not a christian, and I'm white, but I do think that some white people's christian smugness and exclusivity of everyone non-christian is indicative of what they believe as a life-time guarantee with God. In some perverse minds, that seems to mean that they are superior to everyone, have matyr-like status, and have some sort of 'spiritual insurance policy'...
