how old is your friend? If she is over 30, then it sounds like she is taking the best deal on the table. I'm from the MD area, educated in DC[Georgetown U], returned to DC after grad school and have found that black women are the least approachable women of the all. Many DC black men agree with me on this. That's why there are so many mixed couples in the surrounding areas, i.e. Northern VA, PG County, Gaitherburg MD, Bethesda MD, and Silver Spring MD...have you ever been to Georgetown??

The fact that Bennet and his wive are virulent anti-Abortion activists is not enough to have you to admit how unlikely such an event is likely to happen under him as you said little about the ABORTION DOCTOR in Arkansas who offered to abort Black babies for free. The Black people coming out of New Orleans had enough to deal with - why deal with a kid? Too much of a hasle. Right?

one of the reasons why the black man shortage myth is just that is because not all of the women in that 'ratio' are desireable or seeking positive men in their lives.

I'm asking the question - not making a statement. Your insight is what I'm looking for here. Where do souls come from? They go to Heaven but are conjured from . . .? God is in Heaven. Wouldn't it seem reasonable to think that He creates new souls there?

Re: Reparations and Poor Whites

No. Poverty of others is not a fiat of the administration, the management, of slavery. Reparations only gets complicated when issues than pay-for-work get put on the table. Reparations is about money, and the coercion of labor without pay. Th poverty of others, outside of slavery, was not a consequence of slavery. Many of our ancestors were killed because their enslavement was seen as denying them the opportunity to work. The Irish Riots in New York City in the mid-1800s was a consequence of...
