    Black People : HOw you gone build a nation when you can't build a table?

    thuis misinterpretation couldn't be any further from the truth!! well, i suppose it could if one were to postulate the way that descendants of formerly enslaved Africans have been indoctrinated to be the strongest detractors of any efforts to raise the them/ourselves from the crap we in and...

    Black People : HOw you gone build a nation when you can't build a table?

    that don't ever work. most one can do is put the data out there and pray that it gets picked up. ...still prayin - tired of sayin. students always find the teachers for their need(s), and vice-versa. most times, they get rather surly about the very folks that can feed them. seemingly...

    Black Education / Schools : 'Marrying Down' Costs Educated Women $25K a Year

    <sigh> i was more about the suggestion that we work toward building our own educational systems. but if you'd rather continue the "internalized oppression", i guess we'll just not make any progress, after all. that would be a double shame: doing their work for them and not getting any closer...

    always in their divide and conquer/misdirect bs is a kernel of truth: THEIR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM DOES NOT BENEFIT ANYONE BUT THEM. in fact, it is DESIGNED to disrupt/destroy the "spark of creativity" that leads to an enjoyment, and furtherance, of the educational experience, leading to...

    Black People : Donald Sterling says Jews help their own, but successful African Americans do not

    sadly, sometimes i can almost believe that to be true. where were we when katrina popped off? sure, we've marched and protested about those atrocities that they've bothered to report: how about those that they don't? why haven't we reported them to us? we've spoken on this before: how many...
