    Speaking about those news reporters. They can go all kinds of places like the Middle East and hardly ever get shot or anything. If they are Im sure the trustworthy U.S. news would report such a thing right. Umm maybe the reporters have a clue to whats going to happen before it does in such situations. If so I wonder who could be telling US, I mean them. Thats a good interview clip with Mr. Gregory.

    Big ups Ankhur, for real,

    Absolutely fantastic, Dick is still the man, for sure. Ironically speaking, I have been saying the same exact thing...follow the news people around, because they aren't suffering for anything, talking about logistics...CNN and others have everything they need, lol...you've got to love Dick Gregory, for real!

    Thanks again for this piece my brother friend, its saved to Favorites and will be shared with all my warm climate people.

    In other words the allies are going over there putting the natives against one another, implanting drugs and U.S. reporters seem to allways strangely be on top of the action but in the line of fire. They are let known when to stay out the way and basically what to say in the report.

    we really are going to have to get away from blaming the white man for everything that ails the Black race.
    That is part of the problem - until we take charge, take responsibilty and stop looking around for someone else to blame for our problems - we are not going to move forward

    Right so let just forget about them period. But as soon as you make mention of certain things you have to be on the lookout for all that is on the table.

    CILondon,

    Couldn't agree with you more on this stance, however, do you agree that to take this stance requires a delicate balance, almost of no reward? In other words, there will always be those in denial and unwilling to blame any outsiders, if you will...How is this stance delivered to them?

    The fact that these folks are eating mud pies, when, before,
    they had strong tarrifs to potect thier agriculture enterprises, of self sufficiency,
    The fact that the United States supported and propped up a facist dictator who terrorized his own peole like papa Doc, who could not enact such horrror without foreign aid and dollars. The fact that Aristede was kidnapped by the US, all point to agencies of white suremacy beyond nationality ,and engulfed in corporate interests,

    The same corporate interests that had kidnapped thier ancestors 400 years ago,

    now if folks are afraid to talk about color then maybe they should stop reading history
