She didn't get that this extreme election was not the usual BS. She helped Trump win by everywhere saying Clinton did not deserve our vote. Now she got it. …. talking to myself here….best thing I can do now is keep focused on positive and constructive projects.

Your are correct. I have had several arguments with certain Black people that have the belief that they don't need to know anything about Black history, and especially anything about African history or Africa at all. It's not JUST a Black phenomenon, that holds true to EVERYONE. Look how soon Americans "forget" the job-killing, economy crippling policies of the prior administration or the one before that, etc. But, it IS or SHOULD BE more of an interest or concern for African Americans and...

Re: George Zimmerman grants first interview to Fox News

Yemaya ·
All the garbage he talked about during his interview is completely irrelevant to the issues at hand. The only questions he should be answering and we should be asking are "Why did you continue to pursue Trayvon Martin after calling 911 and being told not to continue to follow him?" "Why did you attack and then shoot Trayvon Martin?" All this other nonsense is just distraction. I hope that the prosecution has enough sense to use these interviews against him in court.
