Re: Are You Afraid To Die?

sunnubian ·
No, I'm not afraid to die, but when I do I hope it will be quick and painless. Besides, only the body dies, the human being is eternal, infinite, so, no one never REALLY dies. Each person born is born for a reason, or have a task to complete during their lifetime, no one is born to live in the physical forever, but things like suicide and murder upsets the natural balance/cycle/circle of life and the reason each person is born.

Quoted from the article, these are things that Republicans are suing Democrats for: It's pretty pathetic that this is the best that black conservatives can do. The fact is that above and beyond any party affiliations, it is conservative ideology that was behind everything listed above. What does that say about conservatives that they are attacking Democrats because of their previous conservative positions?

Re: Kola Boof Speaks: Race & Beauty In America

Sister Kola speaks volumes in her discussion about race and beauty in America. Her thorough discussion about the ways in which the White supremacist concept of whiteness has impacted people globally is reminiscent of the research done by Neely Fuller and Dr. Francis Welsing.

Re: Pope: Embryo = "Full and complete human being"

Black Viking ·
What separates a embryo or a fetus from a person is defined by nature and not by human law or religious dogma. It's very simple really, it's the womb. It's not a person until it is a separate entity no longer directly dependant on the mother's bodily systems to support it. While in the womb, it is still a part of the mother's body, and incapable of independant life. It is similar to a hand or a finger. Is it alive? Yes. But if you cut it off it dies quickly, unable to sustain itself or be...

The relevancy is in response to the pope's position. As I said, his statement doesn't suprise me, but I don't really care about his moral position because I don't believe he can justifiably claim any sort of moral high road. For the reasons listed above.

Yes, those words are true. But if I wasn't certain of that, or if I completely disagreed with it, I certainly wouldn't allow your word to change my view. In fact, since your word would be highly suspect, I may take for granted that the truth is the exact opposite. Hypothetically speaking of course.

I'm very shocked by the number, but I've never really imagined a number because I have nothing to base it on. It's so taboo that I haven't discussed suicide much with other Blacks.

I know Black people who have been murdered, but I don't know any who have actually killed themselves. Only one Black person has admitted to me that she has attempted suicide before, but I...

This is a side affect of the socio-economic, race issue that affects African-Americans. Not to mention the high amounts of processed or enhanced foods we eat. If just a few generations ago black people could live to be over 100 years old or well into their 80's and 90's without much medical care, there is an underlying issue. Because of medical problems I've been having recently, I think that its because of some of the foods we eat. For example, the high incidence of fibroids in black women.

In "Race, Crime, and the Law", by Randall Kennedy, he details this dichotomy very well. In short, the law has never been our friend.

They were only crimes if the victim was white. Then, there is unequal enforcement of the law. The "Slave Codes" were ridiculus to any rational mind. One of the ironies I...
