The first time I heard Erykah Badu was in the wee hours of the morning on the overnight radio show they played her first single "On & On" and my boyfriend at the time woke me up to listen to it. After that I kept hearing the song but didn't know who sang it. Then I was home from college on some break (I think Thanksgiving or Winter Break) and she was on BET with Big Les (remember her?) and they were at her house. It didn't even seem like an interview it was just like watching a visit to...

What in the Bible forbids the owning of slaves?It's acknowledged as a practice in both the New and Old Testaments. And nothing I'm aware of forbids the practice per se. You might argue that the Bible would enjoin Masters to treat their slaves well. But what forbids them from owning slaves to begin with?

The car is an asset. The house is an asset. The car would be an asset that just about certainly depreciates. The house could be an asset that appreciates but not necessarily. There can be market appreciation and physical depreciation. Have you ever had a roof leak and had to pay for a new roof? In order to realize that appreciation you must mortgage or sell the house. If you mortgage you take on a liability and must pay every month. If you sell, where do you live? Net worth applies to the...

First of all white people did NOT end slavery as an act of benevolence. They ended slavery when it was no longer profitable for them.
