Young people make many mistakes. When I was in high school all the guys really went for the homecoming queen/prom queen types. How many of the most popular girls in your high schools are now sitting at home or in some dead end job with way to many kids by a bunch of different guys and/or on drugs? And what about the most popular guys? They are a lot of times, on drugs, in and out of jail, unstable, and that's if they're still alive. What's cool when you're young is often not what's cool when...

Some other worthwhile - if depressing - reading is about John Hawkyns, who set sail from England on direct orders from Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth I, during the 1560's bound for the Guinea Coast. His mission: to round up Africans and ship them to the slave markets of Spanish America. According to Nick Hazelwood, who has a degree in history, John Hawkyns was the queen's personal slave trader, and England's first trafficker in the transatlantic trade. .

This is definitely beginning. As individuals we can refuse to be consumers of these images. I simply don't watch TV (no cable). Another form of activism is using your dollars to purchase the work of people we like. For those who have never heard Zap Mama, these sistas are INCREDIBLE. Their basic sound is like Bobby Mcferrin goes back to the Motherland. Pure vocal ensemble. Especially recommend Adventures in Afropea Vol. I, Sabsylma, and Ancestry in Progress.

I'm just tired of calling the constant objectification of women entertainment. Perhaps I'm getting fogy, but quite frankly, I'm no longer entertained. I don't mind that such music exists, but I wish there were more of a balance out there. I'm ready to be serenaded and revered. Not as a bitch, but as a woman. What happened to that whole I want a Black queen thing that was popular when I was coming up? How about that? We went from queens to hos in a decade.

Easily. They are already required by law to check ID for age. So the ID has something on it which says that this person is not eligible to buy alcohol - heck a scarlet letter or something. Precisely. Someone who has committed a number of DUI's does not deserve the privilege to drive and further endanger others. In the same way that sexual predators are required to "check in" with the local police any time they move - this would be a similar penalty to try to prevent a needless death or...

Child molestors can check in every once and again with the police (which is never really enforced in any meaningful way), but drunk drivers should be stamped with a scarlett letter or something?? And this seems rational to you? Nothing seems... amiss? This is already addressed. They have their licenses taken away. And as you can see it doesn't stop people from driving. If you want to address the driving, which is the actual problem , address the driving. Leave the buying liquor out of it.

I'm not sure that it was the translators' fault.
