My eyes caught "bathe." That's a ball face LIE right there. Cuz in the Europe, the people were afraid to take a bath cuz they felt it would attract demons, devils evil spirits...etc. And that was UNHOLY!!! That's why when the Vikings came to the new world the native Americans stayed away from them because of their odor or for a better word stench.

Re: The Black "Progress Narrative" is Self-Defeating

I agree that Blacks must start demanding instead of requesting. But we must also start respecting our cultures and the people in it and respect ourselves at the same time that's ONLY we can have any form of a Progress Narrative. It is only self-defeating when there's no self respect. We must there first. But!

I agree with him, too, provided that it is understood that to demand something does not necessarily have to be Verbal, that most of what we want has to be 'demanded' by our Actions [and non-Actions].

And no discussion of cars and automobiles. How many Americans could have homes paid for if trillions had not been wasted on cars designed to become obsolete? But that brings up the issue of understanding technology to know if the cars are designed to become obsolete or not. But too often we just look at technology from the outside and only know as much as some palefaces decide to tell us. Xum

It would be wonderful if Black people realized that there was non-violent face to the Civil Rights movement as well as a self-defense/armed side also. The way that the white media has spun as if there was some sort of opposing view between the two and that the non-violent philosophy is far superior. When in fact they worked hand in hand for what they felt would be black liberation and to get white people off our backs.

At the end of the day, how can legalizing weed benefit Black people in anyway?? That is my own thoughts regarding questioning this legal marijuana movement. The state governments will regulate it so tightly that most of us wouldn't even be able to comply within reason and they will still drag our black asses to jail. A no win situation for us. IMO.

This is where the writers thesis and logic beings to fall apart.

The authors concerns are more centralized with the market based capitalist system (not my characterization, but the authors description) than than any particular by product of decriminalization. Furthermore, the data on the decriminalization of narcotics...
