    Okay Fam:

    I'm gonna play stupid here for a minute - enough is enough...

    Why is it that in 2010 you still have Maury shows going on with people not learning from other people how to avoid having to say "is he my child's father?"

    More specifically, I am starting to hold the viewpoint that Maury is now as entertaining as the WWE Wrestling that's been going for years.

    Why is this still going? Why are people still paying attention to it?

    Maury

    is part of Amerikkkan folklore, don't question it. lol

    I realize your question is rhetorical.

    Being "dumb" is BIG BUSINESS!

    You make a great point. Maury doesn't help change the climate. HE PROMOTES IT!

    Everything is on schedule.

    People still pay attention to it because it allows them to look at it and (A) say, "At least my life aint that bad." or (B) They, themselves have been in the same situation. or (C) They personally know someone in the same situation.

    However, until our people, men and women, stop having unprotected sex with multiple partners producing unplanned pregnancies where the mother is unsure who the father is and the father is unsure just how many children he has sired, then tv shows like Povich and Springer continue to plan their episodes highlighting it.

    I think it's a mistake to let those shows intefere with your real feelings..
    that show searches the nation for folks willing to make a spectacle of
    themselves.. and when they can't find folks to do it.. you better believe
    they pay folks to pretend.. it's entertainment.. but it's dangerous because
    folks really take it in and let it effect their impression of our people..

    a related example of that is.. I used to work in a Network Operation Center..
    that monitored 20,000 different offices.. our phone only rang when their was
    a problem.. as a result, many of my co-workers developed a negative opinion
    of the equipment at use in those offices.. even though we'd receive only
    about 100 calls per day.. out of 20,000.. and most of the problems where
    minor.. the nature of their work skewed their perspective.. Shows like Maury
    do the same thing.. and that's what they are designed to do.. in my opinion.

    I second that!

    I respect your viewpoint. By the way, it is very true that when you are in an environment where you deal with negative energy, you face the likelihood of carrying that energy along with you and it becomes a part of your personal life.

    hey.. I like that.. "Bro. Jaymes".. I feel a name change coming on.. :)

    ..and I respect your opinion as well.. I understand what you are saying
    about the shows.. that stress is from the constant bombardment against
    our image.. it just never sleeps.. and it won't until we are mashed down
    into little angry and divided pieces.. and when you love your people, it
    pisses you off..
