    Please share one if you have it. Don't let society paint us as a race that is doomed, what I would like in this thread is the positive things we do. Things that Hollywood would make a movie, or a made for tv movie if the person was white. Or the media would plaster over your tv screen if the person was white.
    Local news is fine, but I see many white local stories that are in other states.

    We people who are darker than blue
    Are we gonna stand around this town
    And let what others say come true?
    We're just good for nothing they all figure

    A boyish, grown up, shiftless jigger
    Now we can't hardly stand for that
    Or is that really where it's at?.......Curtis Mayfield 'We People Who Aree Darker Than Blue"



    Peace!

    Happiness is intrinsic, it's an internal thing. When you build it into yourself, no external circumstances can take it away.-Leo Buscaglia
