    obama has turned straight up conservative. i cannot defend him anymore.
    i fought the good fight trying to give the guy a chance but i was wrong.
    he has used his personal charm to get over on people.
    my heart is broken. :bye:

    When we saw Cotton Comes to Harlem as Kids, we was mad at those 2 negro pigs and those pseudo revolutionairies for being so negtive about the great Deke Omalley who only wanted to "help us"

    but when I saw the white guys he was dealing with behind the scenes I realized that Coffin Ed and Gravedigger where not pigs but activists and the revolutionaires had peeped something kinda early.

    Ossie Davis, the man who took care of and provided security for Malcolm's family
    after that fatefull day

    made the movie in protest of the poverty pimps in political office,
    that were conning the Black community in NYC
    after Malcolm and Martin where assasinated


    Now that you are free from the matrix the next move is to moblize sisters and brothers towards understanding that we must be about some serious self sustaining factors in regards to creating a safety net,

    for those of us in the community less fortunate and who will be harmed by these

    cuts he mentioned Saturday,

    after corporate finance thugs and gangstas who deserve to be in locked up Gauntanamo bay were bailed out for 5 trillion in 2009

    and now working class people are being told,

    sorry folks aint no chedda left

    Wow..at least you were big enough to admit it. Many who supported him still believe he doesn't owe us anything---he just has to be "THE FIRST 'BLACK' PRESIDENT".

    Some are sent here to bless our race with their wisdom, as the true Sophia of antiquity,

    and as Black men we must make sure that these women have venues to


    express this light


    in a time of absence of light and wisdom


    Asante sana!

    Is that response based on emotions
    or religious faith?

    or actual observations of what has happened to the standard of living in the last 2 years

    of Black folks in Misssissippi, after the 5 trillion dollar bailouts?:read:

    As a man I have no fear of matriarchy

    I have no idea of what it was in Africa and realy that is not Gerai to the subject at hand

    but what I do know is that from the time I registered to vote back in 75 to this day

    All I saw were'is the sisters involved in organizing, moblizing, and motivating towards any real form of political Black Power

    and not taking no shorts!
