Re: Black Folks: It is Time to Lay Down the Mantle

MBM ·
If you don't accurately identify the source of your problem, how can you reasonably expect to solve it? This is the crux of the problem. White Supremacy Inc. would have you focus your angst on Mexicans and away from those who get rich on exploiting both. Again, Mexicans have not set wages. Mexicans have not hired anyone. White Supremacy Inc. has. Without clarity on this point, whatever energy you have is misplaced. And that's the point. Fighting for our interests is what politics and...

The Texas 10 has its good and bad points, ma'am. I personally don't think it's all that ... but, like AA, it's better than nothing, I guess! The biggest problem with it is that while it gives many more Black children the opportunity for higher education, because the State is broke (mostly due to government-initiated reforms) tuition to these schools is still out of reach for many, many African American and poor families, and Bush's policies are making it harder to get student loans and...

As others have said, the money is there. I'd be more concerned about the logistics of collecting and dispersing it, though. The fact of the matter is that most whites don't have ancestors who ever owned a slave. The majority of slaves were owned by a very, very few wealthy families, individuals, and institutions...far less than 10% of the whole Southern population. Also, what of teh whites whose families did not arrive in the US until well after slavery's end? What of those whites who...

No, there has NEVER been a binding resolution against Israel in history, and there has been 19 against Iraq. Please, we must educate ourselves better.

Naturally, with so many arab nations in the UN, the votes for non-binding resolutions against Israel are there, and one or two have been issued for Israel. These have no forceful consequences, and are not 'threat-like' in any way. However, a...

soul_doctor, Well, finally something that we agree on. It's also something that Jesus said along time ago, so for all your hatred of Christians--and not all misplaced, by the way--in some ways you are actually agreeing with Jesus. Should you want to destroy that which agrees with you?
