    Online all sites like this one are just to discuss things so are there any that actually talk about solutions? Also are there any real life programs that can help? Ones that are specifically for black people? Thanks.

    It's a forum.

    I would suggest that you decide how you want to help and then research organizations or programs that align with your goals.

    You can try sites like meetup.com. It's hit or miss depending on your area, but you can find just plenty of shared interests on there.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,




    ... We talk about solutions on this site. By real life programs, what do you mean? Could you mean programs in real time?

    This is the only site that I know of that is specifically for black people.



    Peace In,

    The Book of the Dead is the modern name of an ancient Egyptian funerary text, used from the beginning of the New Kingdom (around 1550 BC) to around 50 BC.[1] The original Egyptian name for the text, transliterated rw nw prt m hrw[2] is translated as "Book of Coming Forth by Day".[3] Another translation would be "Book of emerging forth into the Light". The text consists of a number of magic spells intended to assist a dead person's journey through the Duat, or underworld, and into the afterlife. The Book of the Dead was part of a tradition of funerary texts which includes the earlier Pyramid Texts and Coffin Texts, which were painted onto objects, not papyrus. Some of the spells included were drawn from these older works and date to the 3rd millennium BC. Other spells were composed later in Egyptian history, dating to the Third Intermediate Period (11th to 7th centuries BC). A number of the spells which made up the Book continued to be inscribed on tomb walls and sarcophagi, as had always been the spells from which they originated. TheBook of the Dead was placed in the coffin or burial chamber of the deceased.

    Habiru
    ​Hebrews



    Habiru or Apiru or ˁpr.w (Egyptian)[1] was the name given by various Sumerian, Egyptian, Akkadian, Hittite, Mitanni, andUgaritic sources (dated, roughly, between 1800 BC and1100 BC) to a group of people living as nomadic invaders in areas of the Fertile Crescent from Northeastern Mesopotamiaand Iran to the borders of Egypt in Canaan.[2] Depending on the source and epoch, these Habiru are variously described as nomadic or semi-nomadic, rebels, outlaws, raiders, mercenaries, and bowmen, servants, slaves, migrant laborers, etc.
    The names Habiru and Apiru are used in Akkadian cuneiformtexts. The corresponding name in the Egyptian script appears to be ʕpr.w, conventionally pronounced Apiru (W,or u-vowel "quail-chick" being used as theEgyptian plural suffix). In Mesopotamian records they are also identified by theSumerian logogram SA.GAZ. The name Habiru was also found in the Amarna letters, which again include many names of Canaanite peoples written inAkkadian. The Amarna letters written to Egyptian pharaohs in the 14th century BC document a time of unrest in Canaan that goes back before the battle of Kadesh to the time of Thutmose I.
