Wow! I remember too sista Yemaya. The merchants there had paid the police to kill the children who slept in the doorway of their stores. These children were thrown out of the homes by their parents who could no longer care for them. I thought this was eradicated a while ago but guess not. Yes it is very sad. Also, I know that since the Cup and The Olympics are coming to Brazil soon....there has been a conscious effort to crack down on crime in 40 of the 60 slums in Rio by the Brazilan...

And, I'll bet that Brazil is receiving all kinds of money from the United States. It's time for America to stop paying out money and support countries and being "allies" with countries around the world that abuse and torture its citizens, its women and its children. Oh, but damn, that would mean that America would have to stop supporting itself, considering that the very same thing happens everyday in this country to Black people in general, and to young Black males (and females).

To unify, it seems to me, that all of us would have to go to AFRICA, the land of our origination. That ain't gonna happen. It would cost billions that most of us do not have. We are so SCREWED!!!!!

The dis-unity among Black people alone, displays the sheer ignorance Black people themselves have about their own history and the delusion of "freedom" that the entire Black race lives under. If the Black race would really look at their history, they would see that not much has really changed. During slavery, many slaves could were given a "pass" leave the 'plantation', many slaves were allowed to make their own money. So, what's the big difference today when the fate of the entire Black...

It's still very much a SLAVE culture. The whole idea of the carnival is showing female slaves on moving auction block nude dancing for massa and his boys. And racial social amalgamation is a part of it. It is the MAIN of it. And done deliberately.

What gets lost in all this is the fact that slavery was not initially racial, but was made racial, in America and the West once they figured out how dominate Black/African genes were.
