Re: Edna Griffin: The Rosa Parks of Iowa

Activists keep alive memory of Iowa's civil-rights pioneers Fifty years ago, three blacks facing discrimination said enough was enough Edna Griffin challenged prejudice 50 years ago by asking to be served at the Katz Drug Store in downtown Des Moines. A year later she and two other blacks had their right to equal service affirmed. It was a watershed event in the civil-rights movement.

Re: Anyone been to Hawaii?

No, there aren't many Afican-Americans here at all. Those that are here are usually military, so there only here as long as they're stationed here. The racial climate here is a little strange. Hawaii is predominantly Asians (Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Philipino) and Pacific-Islanders (Samoan, Tongan, Tahitian, Hawaiian), but there are no clear lines drawn. Hawaii is often refered to as the "Melting Pot of the Pacific" for good reason. Nearly all of the people here are mixed in some way,...

Randall Robinson, an expatriate who moved to a Caribbean island, wrote a book about this topic called "Quitting America". It gives an insight about his life an that of his family since he has left the U.S. for a black nation. In my own personal opinion, I feel as if when we fought for integration we gave up a lot more for a little gain. The biggest thing that we got from integration is the fact that we can spend our money anywhere we want, the little bit of it we do have. However, when a...

Re: Marcus Garvey Was A Colonialist

Empty Purnata ·
Marcus Garvey supported a Back-To-Africa movement which supported African-Americans moving to Africa and using Liberia as a home state. Of course, knowing the history of Liberia, this translated to establishing African-American settlements even against the will of the Native West Africans. African-American settlers into Liberia behaved very similarly to European colonialists. They displaced the natives against their will, and used Western backing to establish Western social order.

Part of this is needing Whites to set the so called academic standards . The laws of physics don't give a damn about academic standards. Their concept of education is psychologically conditioning White kids to be subservient to AUTHORITY. To a significant extent being educated by their standards is becoming as dumb as they are.

So you believe it is a major conspiracy involving members of Congress, Randall Robinson and others? Wouldn't that be a rather stupid thing to do since 1) they are friends with Aristide, and 2) all it takes is a 1 minute press conference where Aristide dispels the "kidnapping" charges to dispute their claims? On the other hand, we have a history of the Bush administration taking liberty with the truth. Is it so far-fetched to conceive of them lying to the American public?
