Re: Should Black People...

AUDIO did NOT ask an open-ended question. It already had a CONTEXT. Thank you. Matter of fact, he linked your Chosen Illiterate ass right to the CONTEXT. The question itself, especially with the linked CONTEXT, betrays even the slightest notion that concerns/considerations about COMMERCE were ever even part of any conceiveable CONTEXT or purpose for asking the question: Should we seek to ease the discomfort that is felt by the viewers of negative images about us, in order to make them feel...

I damn near fell out laughing while reading what Sister PowerFlower wrote; She writes that the brother wrote in his article; HAHA... a whistling Black man would be perceived as less threatening...

Re: What Are Women Really Attracted To?

It's really difficult to determine what women are attracted to. True story: I was on the bus. This fine-looking Puerto-Rican girl came on; she had these large, seductive, blue eyes; voluptuous - full luscious tits, big round hips and an ass to match. ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. So,as she walks down the aisle, we make eye-contact. I smiled at her. And she? She rolled eyes-clearly annoyed, as if to say: "nigga PUH-LEEEEAAASE...don't even think about!!" Now, I admit, I'm never gonna make the cover of...

EP, Yes, John Locke and the idea of universal rights is very European, though they did not spring full-grown from the head of the French Revolution, especially that part of it that so quickly degenerated into the Reign of Terror and was well criticized by such as Edmund Burke, a supporter of much of the American philosophy.

Re: Some sobering statistics on poverty

Pace Tua ·
Unfortunately, these numbers and what they mean have become "normalized", in the sense put forward by Edward Herman in his book "Triumph of the Market". It can only be so, as capitalism panders to the uncontrolled greed and self-interest of the few. These statistics have to be accepted, normalized or else people would realize something is wrong and this is a threat to capitalist culture. And there is a method to all this as well. One of the cornerstones is to promote the banality of evil.

I saw the show. It was very interesting to me because I'm bi-racial. The question that kept comming to me about that mother was, "How do you act white? Is there a specific way that white people act?"

When the word nigger comes from a white person it is derogatory, subjugating, and inflammetory. And he did this in public, in front of other students, which to my mind just throws gas on the...

I don't think your reference of 'Africans in America' is the same as my reference of 'African Americans', but without belaboring that, I'm sure we will each know where our respective references are applicable. You may be right. That 'fear' may indeed be a consequence of experience in American society. African Americans are not the center of the African world, agreed. Educational programs, and systems, can reflect that African America in not the center of the African of the African World.
