IMHO, we should be striving to become a unified, self-sufficient African American community.

We should establish more of our own banks, improve our urban "blight", develop business and professional incubators to enable us to decrease our dependency on those who seek our demise rather than our growth.

I respectfully disagree. The Theory of Relativity is a scientific theory based on substantive, quantifiable evidence, and Einstein was a specialist in his field.

If the activities of the Catholic church are any indication, he is hardly a specialist on moral judgement. If his moral judgement is to trump anyone else's, surely it must be of greater standing.

That's why we get lead astray... the idealism of what the law is supposed to be . What the law actually is is quite different. To quote Tom Cruise in "A Few Good Men"...
