I would conclude that many young black women make very poor dating choices early in their dating lives.

She [Dr. Chapman]feels that black women would like to feel that their love can change people...only later to...

Sorry, I didn't communicate the point well enough. It's not just that poverty exists, its that because America utilized slavery, it denied poor and working class whites the opportunity to feed their families, earn income, and build wealth. Absent slavery there still would have been an American economy. America would have had to pay the poor and working class folks here. If we can acknowledge a connectivity between the wrong committed to slaves and their descendents today, is it also not...

Re: Vouchers ???

Sweetwuzzy ·
Do you think the vocher movement today has the intention to desegregate ??? If the U.S. models its educational system like Poland or Belgium, most likely American schools will be segregated, but the segregation probably will not matter, because poor performing schools will be shut down, and the students from the poor performing schools will be put into educatinally better schools.So the children from poor performing schools will not be left hanging.

There are pics of the plane wreckage from the Pentagon along with lots of information surrounding the crash and some grainy video footage. I have personally posted links and pictures of all of that stuff before and I'm sure it's still around here somewhere. Empty Purnata , your very own link talks about the eyewitnesses to the crash who saw the plane . What do people get out this conspiracy theory? Is it comforting somehow?

Re: Plane Hits Building...

Which link? Was the 9-11 Commission link invalid? The damage caused by the "plane" that supposedly hit the Pentagon is not compatible with that of a plane (where is the wing damage?). There was never any evidence that a plane hit, nor were any bodies of the "passengers" ever found. So let's see a BIG-ASS BOEING 757 hit a building, only caused a small hole barely bigger around than the fuselage, caused no wing damage, didn't even plow very far into the building, didn't disturb the lawn one...

All of that is cleared up and addressed in the link provided. The dimensions of the entry damage are exactly consisent with the dimentions of the plane. There is not only pictures of plane debris on the ground but also inside the building. There was MASSIVE destruction inside and outside of the building and (again) plenty of supportive photographs and EYEWITNESS accounts. At a certain point, there is just no convincing people who want to hang on to this conspiracy theory for whatever reason.

Re: Black Unity: Moving Beyond The RHETORIC

I think that actions are motivated by emotions, when not motivated directly by instinct without thought. Some emotions thus produce an instinctive reaction, such as fear producing the action resultant of fight or flight. Unity is an action and hence requires a prerequisite emotion to motivate towards the instinctive reaction to the emotion. There is nothing that creates unity more than a shared enemy. This is why this nation always embarks upon a campaign of demonizing an entity in order to...

Great post Noah! We don't allow ourselves to see other black people as being "black like us" and vice versa. Often times the majority of our people are suffering from the sames types of issues and don't even know it because there is a certain amount of disconnect. Some of the disconnect is external and some is internal. If we overcome the internal disconnect, we can definitely overcome the external disconnects.
