Ask an intelligent question. I'll ask you a quick one: LATENT EFFECTS? What are you calling Latent Effects and the importance or reason why they will need to be "finally", completely dissolved is... WHAT? Consider this, then get back to me (right from the Project-2019 article): Black Americans must understand that racism existed in 1619, racism exists in 2001, and racism will exist in 2099. Therefore, the critical element is the degree to which racism affects the lives, the liberties, and...

The Super Negro thing is a form of exceptionalism, that goes back centuries. It is similar to the exceptionalism often found among cultural or political black nationalist. While the later group often asserts that black folk are different, unique, or distinct culturally, socially, historically, or even biologically and thus need a "nation" of our own, the former understands black uniqueness as as somehow salvific for the world. Even before it appears in King, it is present in black culture...

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.

Read the book "Farming of the Bones' by Edwidge Danticat. You will be absolutely appalled. Although it is a work of fiction, it is based on actual events. These things don't come up when discussing the current events and how the Dominican Republic's government has harbored the criminals who sought to destroy Haiti. How they worked in cohorts just recently to overthrow Aristide. Why? Because he was not part of the light skinned upper class of Haitians mixed with white (french and spanish).

Part three... The sudden drop in income for small farmers resulted in widespread famine, as farmers no longer had income with which to purchase food. The consequence for the Rwandan state elite was just as devastating; the money required to maintain the position of the rulers had come from coffee, tin, and foreign aid. With the first two gone, foreign aid became even more critical, so the Rwandan elite needed more than ever to maintain state power in order to maintain access to that aid.
