Re: For the Sistas of AA.org

I love Lauryn Hill! This sista is brilliant, talented, and beautiful. And a few years ago one of her songs really made a difference in my life. I had just turned 30 - which for some reason was traumatic - and I had broken up with a girlfriend. Then I learned that my unmarried sister was having a baby. And for some reason this last piece of news hit me the hardest. I fell into a funk. It was Lauryn Hill's song To Zion that made me realize something very good could come out of the situation. I...

Bush's slanted sales pitch Social Security is not unfair to blacks January 28, 2005 President George W. Bush tried to win support from black Americans for private Social Security investment accounts this week by arguing that blacks are shortchanged by the current system because they don't live as long as whites. It's a specious argument that doesn't withstand scrutiny. Black people actually receive a higher rate of return from their investment in Social Security than others when the full...

That's a good question - one that every negro should ask every white person three times a day and especially after meals. I was kind of hoping I did have some slave-owning ancestors. Alas, so far, my research has come up empty. My father is pure Irish-American and his family didn't get to the United States until well into the last century. Many of his ancestors perished in the Irish famine in the mid-1800s. Before that, it's doubtful my Irish ancestors owned slaves of any color since St.

God has a penis but no womb. Males are mothers. They give birth to women via their rib. Women cannot bear children. Men fertilize through the rectum.
