Re: Al Sharpton Accuses Bush Of Fueling Homophobia Among Blacks

You finally got something straight. Yes, a benefit that is afforded one group of people to the exclusion of another based on race, religion, gender, ethnicity, sexual-orientation, or disability is illegal discimination, and therefore oppression. BTW, it's also unconstitutional. Healthcare coverage has nothing to do with anything. Insurance companies set their own policies. No one has a constitutional right to healthcare. They should, but they don't. What does this mean? You make it sound as...

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. I'm certain her analysis has been heavily influenced by Dr. Fuller's United Independent Compensatory Code. Thanks for sharing. Loved it! What is Beauty?

(2) It's controversial exactly what Lincoln and the Union troops were sacrificing for - i.e., was it to end slavery or was it to preserve the Union? And there were also non-altruistic reasons for white northerners to oppose slavery. For example, many white northern industrialists feared that if the south industrialized that it would have a tremendous competitive advantage due to access to a huge pool of free slave labor.

As a parent of two young school age boys I have seen this phenomenon first hand. Little white boys can swing from the ceiling and they are "cute". Let a little black boy do anything - exibiting energy and vibrance outside a very narrow prescribed box of behavior - and it's a problem. The elephant in the room is white racism against black children. Black kids never get the benefit of the doubt that white teachers would want for their own kids (hence they generously shovel it out for other...

By Sunnubian I am not sure where you practice law, but in NJ, child support is calculated based on both incomes, thereafter, the non-custodial parent, pays in cash or check directly to the cusotidal parent or to the child support office[in NJ it is called the Probation Department], who converts the cash into a check that is either deposited directly into the custodial parent's account or mailed to him or her. The Custodial Parent has the discretion to spend the money as he or she see fit.

You know people believe that teachers are invincible to the societal ills of our world, but teachers have been subjected and exposed to the same ignorance about the limited intellectual competency of Blacks as everyone else. And they bring this ignorance, either consciously or subconsciously, into the school and classroom. Growing up in the gritty parts of DC, for example, it was never once required for me (or any of my classmates) to take courses in Chemistry, Physics, Biology or Calculus.
