    peace,

    no, i have not seen it yet but i will try to pull it up when i get a chance. Though the Title speaks volumes "Making America As Good As Its Promise.".

    I don't know when America has ever kept a promise to anyone except themselves. Then, the question arises as to how do you make america as good as it's promise? Also, which promise are we referring too?

    but, as i said i have not seen it yet so maybe all of the above has already been answered thru the distinguished panels that were present.

    This has become a very big joke...
    The title of this symposium alone. Shows in detail the complete insanity of some of our people.

    yea

    i used to be big on this
    but no so much anymore
    i thought good points were made by Dyson, Sharpton, Maxine

    but overall i found it not as exciting as years past

    i like the facts they bring but they're not as inclusive as they like to let off

    Oh, that's easy. The promises that America that it made at its inception. The promise of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. We all know that we have been struggling to make that a reality for African-Americans. And the discussion is about how to make that real.

    I know my brotha. They need more viewpoints. And I don't like the idea of talking about certain sub-groups and not including them.

    Some of us. . .well. . .actually many of us think that politics can hold some answers.

    It doesn't matter if that is wishful thinking. It is a fact that many Africans in this country hold that opinion.

    I know that Farrakhan spoke a couple of years ago, about that view. But his proposal seemed like a pipe-dream. . .bigger than the one this symposium suggests.

    That's fine brother if you think that. But that is not my point.
    Now since I didn't specifically refer to anyone thing are political idea. I find it interesting that you would refer to what Mr. Farrakhan said a couple of years ago. In fact your first statement is quite puzzling to me. Because you automatically made and assumption about may thoughts on politics.

    You know I know this may sound a little crazy black people. But maybe that is not the destiny that we should be pursuing.
    Maybe we have to start seeing that promise for what it is..

    I am not saying that I believe that at all. I am suggesting the mathematics suggest that. So since that is the case. . .what are we supposed to do? If there are other solutions out there, they are not presenting themselves as viable ones. I would like to see a symposium with those viewpoints included. But it needs to be a "real" conversation. Not one obsessed with rhetoric.
