Re: College "Education" Is BS

If we as blacks supported our Black colleges more and pushed to change the dynamics and cirriculum of these institutions so that they designed to improve the conditions of the masses of black peopl we wouldnt be having this problem. Europeans are not gonna teach you have to beat them, or to challenge the status quo, so if you go to school expecting thats are really crazy. Basically they designed colleges to support the system not challenge it Imagine if black colleges taught about true...

It is soooooooo clear he has no clue. Now when he coming up? He wasn't studying black history or ancient Egyptology. So how in the hell does he know why the pyramids were built. I have my own theory and it has nothing absolutely nothing to do with a focking store. If he knew his stuff, he would know that during that time Egypt was the richest country in the world. They were so rich that gold dust was used on the streets like sand dust is used today in saloons. But I'm not gonna revisit all...

Where is DYMOND MILBURN NOW??? Has she returned to any semblance of a normal life????????? How's her family? I don't remember her case at all, but I'm sorry for everything she endured now that I've read her story. White men have always had screws loose in their heads. Something in those skulls we see talking everyday has a pineal gland that's calcified. Anything calcified ain't good, even their faces and necks are calcified.

No one has to take an "oath of allegiance" to America, but immigrants to America that are being naturalized. However, the only slavery Black people are suffering from, is mental slavery. But, mental slavery is something Black people must free themselves from, and the chains that bind Black people to mental slavery are, DIVISION, IGNORANCE OF THE TRUE HISTORY OF THE BLACK RACE, AND DISORGANIZATION.

This is a great idea!! However .... it wont be easy to spend Black dollars with such a limited number of Black businesses to spend them in. Part of the initiative should definitely include the encouragement of building Black entrepreneurship within the community!!!!

The spirit of Black people needs a post-slavery/post jim crow overhaul. We simply have the keys to our own jail cell now. Why don't we spend money more Black-wards?? The hard reality is that most of us only spend money in Black businesses during a haircut or a hair-do....that's it!!! We must refocus our efforts to grow ourselves up. Too many of us are dependent on "others" to hire us for THEIR PROFIT!!!

One of the main problems that I see with African American economic independence is the fact that so many Black minds that think alike are so far away from each other, or often do not even know the other exists. Case-in-point, all of the members on this site, I think we are all from different states. If we all lived in the same state or the same city, maybe we could have implemented something by now. Another thing is, that there are so many out there telling us what needs to happen, without a...
