    Hey Everyone!
    I just ran across this petition this morning and was more than happy to sign it! I thought about everyone here and how we could help bring this task force to light. I'd like to see this happen before he gets out of office... we are long over due for this real discussion to take place!!! So sign the petition, and share with your facebook friends!!! We helped him get into office the least he can do is respectfully address this issuse... and I do expect some action not just a bunch of talk! Or do we need to march to the White House on this one and just sit at the **** door step and bang on the door?

    Actualy Obama addressed this issue during his first term....with the bottom line being; "we ain't got nothing coming".

    His comments are true and accurate, teachthechildren, this came up as a debate question for the candidates running for democratic nominee during Mr. Obama's first election. Nevertheless, its not up to the President to do what we must do for ourselves ... With that, here's one of the most current informational Threads this site has on Reparations, and I will address you initial post shortly:


    Reparations Movement Growing Strong...Closer than you think

    Thanks teacthechildren for your ever present vigilante eyes staying on the prize.


    Easily, I can support any effort, misguided or not, in search of Reparations, and I did sign this petition like the others.

    This effort will buttress Congressman Conyers' effort over the years with H.R. 40:

    I particularly like your suggestion of marching on the White House, we know was built by the slave labor of our ancestors, to get the job done, fo real teachthechildren, you energy is much appreciated:)

    There's not enough laughs in the world to address this comical issue, Whites live off of Africa, I repeat, Europe is living off of Africa, there's no way they're going to help their slaves rise, when will we get this? Nobody is a friend to Africa, nobody is a friend to Africa diaspora, we are our only friends.

    You would do better to create a non-profit fund and ask the poor African-Americans to contribute to their own repair because you're never going to get a dime from Whites, they know it, Obama knows it, hell everyone knows it except some of us.

    King Sango you may be right but I'd like to look that Negro in the eye and let him tell me to my face why he does not feel we deserve this.....perhaps there s a disconnect between his mom being white and his dad being African(not a displaced African in America)
    I say keep fighting there was a time we never thought we would not be slaves......so lets demand what we deserve like the Gays are doing lol and at the same time work towards building healthier communities .I will be posting the site about the land in a day or two.I am conversing with land owner about what's avaliable le tomorrow...
