    Hello everyone. I am new to desteer.com. I just registered. Anyway, I discovered this site while looking for interesting subject matter to immerse myself in. I came across this forum and have read some posts because I am very much interested in the far reaching and all encompassing African diaspora. I consider myself and idealist. I am your typical black girl from Baltimore, MD. All I know of my heritage is that I am obviously black but also have Native American blood. I guess there is really no real point to what I am writing. I am constantly seeking to expand my knowledge of all cultures especially those similar to my background. I just cannot understand why so many problems exist between different cultures, especially those that are so similar and have undeniable ties to one another. I guess I am just venting.

    Paris3000,
    Perhaps I will be able to help you understand. Please read the books, "The Destruction of Black Civilization" by Chancellor Williams; "The Assassination of the Black Male Image" by Earl Ofari Hutchinson and "Without Sanctuary" by Congressman John Lewis and James Allen. Please, also, go to the site www.blackwallstreet.freeservers.com. I have more books that you can read for enlightenment but the ones listed above are good starts.
