    I don't normally promote this kind of thing.....however they are asking some good questions (as YOU will see,) and for those in the D.C. area YOU might find this info helpful.

    What do you mean when you say "power"? And how can "power" be colored?

    Yes and No

    African Man, with african Family, African Image, yes.

    African People, African Word, African, Totalaity, no

    But we can not expect all of this from him
    I am thankful he does not forget about African people, even though is it not ALL of us.....he is Black Power for SOME of us....and that is more than enough, only for a Little while. No,, it is NOT enough. But I am thanful we have something.....Powerful and Positive.

    Rule #2 - When posting anothers words/works, post only a snipet and a link so others can read the original information for themselves. The only way we allow anothers words to be fully displayed, unless you have written permission as explained in our forum rules.

    This rule is not new to you. I have edited your post.

    DANG!

    I done broke the rules and then didn't answer the second question first or none of that!

    (Sorry Zulie.)

    But Brutha Ed....I can't go on a psychological exhibiton in extentialism with you, see the few 'brain-drops' that I have--I need, to navigate MY way through this modern-day technological society WE live in.

    Suffice it to say....those whom the article speaks of, may be better suited to answer the questions that you have asked. I'M only the messenger, not the mess.

    Btw Mr. WILLIAMS....nice pictures to YOUR gallery.

    Thank you for the comments about the pics!

    When a person asks a question should that person be the one to answer questions about the information they are inquiring about?

    Yes

    I dont know about Obama being a house Negro. But I definitely think questions should be asked, let them be answered by Obama's actions if and when he becomes president...we gotta give the man a chance and judge him by his actions. As a black person being in the state of mind that I am in, I believe that any black person with power in his or her hands should always use that power to first serve the masses of the underclass begining with blacks. Correct me if im wrong, I believe that Garvey said "Charity begins at home and then abroad."
