    Black Spirituality Religion : So many religions in the world...then why...

    Why are there so many "bad" things happening that are destroying people and our planet? I don't know how to have this conversation, but this thought keeps coming to me. With so many religions in the world, and billions of people engaged in their practices, why is there so much suffering? I've...

    Black People Politics : 'Something is wrong' with presidential election, says civil rights leader Diane Nash

    Difference between Clinton and Trump relative to their sexual trysts, one was consensual and impeachable and the other, allegedly, unwanted and thus, criminal. The new moral standard in this country should make everyone extremely afraid, particularly Black people, poor people and women.

    Black People Politics : Mitch McConnell Says Obama's Election Means We Don't Need Reparations

    I wanted to laugh and cry at the same time when I saw this. Laugh because I thought how stupid and overtly racist can you be? Cry, because this is the reality we so sadly find ourselves in and I wonder where this kind of thinking will lead us. "We" can't rely on politicians to fight these kinds...

    Black People Politics : Impeachment Proceedings

    I saw Donny Deutsch sort of debating with Al Sharpton on "Morning Joe" about whether to call for impeachment now (Sharpton's position) vs. bring #45 up for criminal charges first, then follow up with impeachment (Deutsch's position). It was interesting and I saw value on both sides of the...

    Black People Politics : Impeachment Proceedings

    Impeachment is almost inevitable now, thanks to Mueller's speech the other day. But I think timing is critical as to when Pelosi gives the thumbs up to start impeachment proceedings against #45. It's a fine line I think she's trying to navigate with 2020 elections not far away--and yes, people...

    Black People : Random News....

    Let's not confuse strength with being rigid or inflexible. In fact, the strength that has been attached to the Black woman is rooted in her ability to be flexible, adaptive, strategic, courageous and protective. However, if and when she finds herself in an environment that labels these as...

    Black People : Random News....

    Key word...'STEREOTYPE'...let's not buy into the hype. If it wasn't for the 'strength' of Black women where would Black people be? And when did strength become a negative characteristic? No one in my Black family was ever named or probably would be named Becky.

    What do you think about this article? Abortion’s Devastating Impact Upon Black Americans Some data shows that the fertility rates among Black and Brown people in America is declining and that the more educated among them are choosing to have children later in life, if at all. There are reasons...

    African American History Culture : 15,000 sign petition calling for black history museum to include Clarence Thomas

    Wow...I read in that wikipedia biography of Hill that Thomas' wife asked Hill to apologize to her husband for accusing him of sexually harassing her!! A sense of white privilege combined with ignorance is dangerous.

    African American History Culture : 15,000 sign petition calling for black history museum to include Clarence Thomas

    I'm so tired of splitting hairs when it comes to character and position. Too often we feel the need to look past character flaws to find some greater "good" in individuals. Don't parents still teach their children that there are rewards for "good" behavior and punishment for "bad" behavior. Why...

    Black People Politics : What America sees...

    Is America like a rose? Pretty on the outside but if you get too close you'll get pricked by its thorns? Money matters? Yeah, I've been looking at the Steve Harvey situation lately, and recalling him telling Monique that making money is more important than acting with integrity and Black people...

    My quick .02 cents. He is absolutely gorgeous! I am an animal lover, always have been. I have pictures of me at 2 years old holding stray puppies in the hot sun in South Florida. I can tell from looking at his pics that Strider deserves a lot of respect. I've always had small to mid-size dogs...
