Re: Negroes who defend the status quo once they've "gotten theirs"

The key distinction is OWNERSHIP AND POWER. Those who have both SEEK TO PROTECT THEIR POSSESSION. Those who don't have them seek to LIBERALIZE the rules and have more of these resources to flow their way. When it comes to international aide and financing the liberalist American sounds very CONSERVATIVE. When it comes to understanding the plight of the Mexican father to depart his family and come to the United States illegally in order to work and feed his family it seems that many of you are...

Too bad, CF, you don't understand that those in power and wealth got there in large part through illegal, immoral, and exploitive ways. They seek to "lock in" their immorally obtained lead in society and fear true and free competition with anyone. And BTW - this has NOTHING to do with political and social conservatism.

This is the biggest and most foul pile of BS ever to come out of a criminal justice system. Before this garbage, crime statistics were the biggest.

Please review the 20/20 Special on Education in which they traveled to Belgium to consider why they outperform AMERICAN CHILDREN of all races.

You have to ask what we/they/us/you/I think freedom really is? From OUR prospective we live under the illusion of freedom. This song represents my new found definition of freedom and the definition that is used by White men: "You are only as free as your ability to MAINTIAN and PROTECT your freedom. If you can't do this then you are not truley free." Which is why they are big on the "right to bare arms". That is why 9/11 was such a jolt to their system. They KNEW they couldn't be touched.

Re: College "Education" Is BS

Pace Tua ·
Have to agree with you on this one, EP. For the most part, colleges and universities are institutions of conformity. I say this with some insight, having worked at UCSF in administration for eleven years. In general, colleges and universities are a mirror of the values of society. And in this society, the reflection is capitalism and power. For US colleges and universities, government funding, corporate funding, private grants, and alumnae contributions, pretty much spell status quo.

I disagree. Natural meat eaters eat flesh raw. Accordingly, natural meat eaters have claws, sharp teeth, sweat through the mouth, have a short intenstine which is two thirds the length of their bodies (humans are 30 ft. long), their jaws move up and down only, and the stomach can digest hair. Humans lack all of these natural meat eating habits and attributes. Furthermore, the human intestinal tract causes meat to stay in the body for up to 3 days. This causes toxins to be aborbed in the body...
