    As bad as YOU feel right now, just keep diggin'...YOU'LL feel worse.

    No one can 'force' an individual to learn, a soul must learn for itself.

    Now YOU'RE learning and YOU will grow.

    Peace.

    have you ever been...

    sister river,don't be too upset,we've all been lied to even by our own since we've been here,heck i not too long ago heard a negro[had she been black she would have known better]radio personality tell her audience that the head slavemaster himself[george washington]had a close black friend[maybe she was referring to the portrait of ol george and his family with the blackman standing in the back more than likely waiting to dump his chamber pot,and there will be more lies told to us but the truth is outthere and we as blacks have to seek it and embrace it.

    Just remember the MESSENGER LIED. That is the GOVERNMENT (LOCAL, STATE FEDERAL), RUTHLESS WHITE MEDIA and all THOSE WHO CELEBRATE EDISON and NEGLECT OTHERS INVOLVED.

    Neither THOMAS EDISON or Lewis Howard Latimar WERE AT PERSONAL ODDS.

    If someone can POINT to EVIDENCE of THIS please DO.

    Thomas EDISON likened HIMSELF to ONE of our ANCESTORS.

    He even said to ONE of OUR ANCESTORS,

    Let's BUILD a NEW WORLD TOGETHER.

    I wouldnt DOWN THOMAS EDISON PERSONALLY without FURTHER INVESTIGATION but the MESSENGER.

    This is an EXAMPLE of BAD TEACHERS.

    From all PARTS of the COMMUNITY and especially the NATION.

    Oh well.

    He said it to A FRESH OUT OF THE SCHOOL of SLAVERY ANCESTOR in his EARLY LIFE.

    A PIONEER of WHAT WE CAN DO.

    Edison WANTED HIM on HIS TEAM to REVOLUTIONIZE the WORLD.

    A man of EDISON caliber and INSIGHT would KNOW what WORKS and WHAT DOESN'T.

    Dont you THINK.

    I dont THINK THOMAS EDISON was ABOUT ENTERTAINMENT.

    Maybe the COMPANY he BUILT was ENTERTAINMENT but the MAN HIMSELF I dont THINK SO.

    Neither was LATIMER.

    But I DIGRESS.

    Oh well.

    Don't worry 'bout it. In those days, Blacks could not get things patented, so they gave their ideas to someone who could! Edison did break him off I heard.
