I saw the show. It was very interesting to me because I'm bi-racial. The question that kept comming to me about that mother was, "How do you act white? Is there a specific way that white people act?" The mother also said she thought her daughter wasn't black enough. So, of course, similar questions present themselves,"How black is black enough? How does one portray blackness?" I think the mother's unaddressed problem is that her daughter is more than half-white. She has very Aryan features...

Like Black Viking, I am not anti-PC, but I am anti-censorship. Whether or not I find the comic offensive, I think that a publication has the right to print it and I believe that individuals have the right to protest against it non-violently. I support their right to censure (express harsh criticism of the picture) but not to censor (control the press, speech, artistic expression). Free expression to my mind is integral to democratic society. Personal anecdote: I was a chaplain in NYC when...

This is one of the many reasons that central. government controlled banking should have been snuffed out early on in the nation's history.

For instance, if they want to take your money to shoot an Arab, buy someone's viagra, or pay for a bureaucrat's Starbucks they can either tax you directly or just print more money - a method which taxes your savings indirectly.

Try telling that to the Arabs of North and East Africa, who view the Black Africans as "kaffir" and animals.

Lordy, the lack of education round here is frightening. The blackout occurred mbm, not because Niagra Falls stopped falling or dried up. The blackout occurs because the grid is set up to share energy production based on regional needs, switching occurs regularly. The problem arises when the grid is maxed out of its capacity by having too little energy to meet demand, no reserve or backup energy production, and when there are two few sources of energy on which to rely on in the first place.
