Re: Are You Afraid To Die?

James Wesley Chester ·
There is an apprehension. I don't look forward to it, though as I've said on this board, I really thought I would be dead by 50. I have a friend who always says he wants to die quietly in his sleep like his father, and not kicking and screaming like the other three guys who were in the car with him. PEACE Jim Chester

Young people make many mistakes. When I was in high school all the guys really went for the homecoming queen/prom queen types. How many of the most popular girls in your high schools are now sitting at home or in some dead end job with way to many kids by a bunch of different guys and/or on drugs? And what about the most popular guys? They are a lot of times, on drugs, in and out of jail, unstable, and that's if they're still alive.

I thought this movie was beyond silly... and I'm sorry, but I don't see the 'emasculated black man' thing. I understand the concept but I'm not sure I buy into it.

Unfortunately, these numbers and what they mean have become "normalized", in the sense put forward by Edward Herman in his book "Triumph of the Market". It can only be so, as capitalism panders to the uncontrolled greed and self-interest of the few. These statistics have to be accepted, normalized or else people would realize something is wrong and this is a threat to capitalist culture. And there is a method to all this as well. One of the cornerstones is to promote the banality of evil.

Empty Purnata, this is a very interesting topic. Most of the whites I encounter in real time(or on the net) truly believe that racism is either dead or "not as bad as it used to be". When I tell them otherwise, most get upset and begin to attack me or talk about the "mess" that's in the black community and want to preach to me about blacks taking responsibility for our actions. My favorite "comeback" from these white folk is the "you blacks are always blaming the white man for your problems"...

_________________________________________________________________________ Often this may be the case when there has been a long marriage and an agreement for the wife to be a stay at home mom, etc., the court takes into consideration the number of years the wife could have been either educating herself and/or working, but instead stayed at home and maintained the household and raised the children while the husband worked and establish an avenue of independent livelihood outside the home.

I once listned to a lecture by Dr Ivan VanSertima It was proposed that the reason we see so many statues with the noses removed is that during those times the people believed that the spirit of the dead person exited and entered the nose and that if they remove the nose they could keep the spirit in or "lock it out". I've never been able to confirm if it is myth or fact that Napoleon destroyed the nose of the Sphinx.

Re: Reparations v. Eliminating Race Specific Claims

It seems to me that any example of progress can be use as an arguement that racism is dead, and we now live in a color-blind society. I see such arguements being made all the time right now, against Afirmative Action or whatever, even without a penny of reparations being made. Of course, some people would add reperations to their long list of reasons that they already have. There's nothing special about a supposed backlash resulting from reperations. Every step forward does that.

One of the things about hopefully being an educator is having enough sense not to engage in behavior or language that is wrong or could seemed as hateful. Just because your students are brain dead doens't mean you have to be also. Interesting point about juke joints as I spend my fair share in them while going to college in Mississippi.
