You're welcome NSpirit. Like It is is now on abc's website... so wherever you are you can watch it. It is an excellent show! Why must the call for papers include the Holocaust? Don't we have enough documentation to substantiate the damage Maafa, slavery and Jim Crow did to black people in the New World for it to stand on its own without discussing the Holocaust? I am very frustrated with this constant pairing of these two genocidal events. Although the very people who may have died in the...

Basically, EbonyRose, I'm trying to find out what health/spiritual/nature based benefits there are to being black. There has to be something to it because white people are very obsessed with being black in color and in actions at least from my own observations. I think that would also apply to the tangible benefits for Black people if we had knowledge of our own bodies and how we work. But we can talk about that on the thread.... Someone I was talking to on Sunday mentioned this particular...
