Controversial author Kola Boof, who has lived a colorful and intriguing life to date, claims to be the ex-mistress of Osama Bin Laden and Egypt's ex-president Hosni Mubarak.  Ms. Boof occasionally demonstrates she is unabashed about using acerbic language to express her viewpoints.  Boof talks with host Deardra Shuler, about her book "The Sexy Part of the Bible," a fictional tale about how colonialism left some Africans embarassed by their black skin tone, thus resorted to bleaching their skin.  Ms Boof has written several novels and poetry collections including Nile River Woman, The Swallowers and Flesh and the Devil. Born in Omdurman, Sudan, Boof now lives in Southern California. The title of Kola's book came about as a result of something a Christian named John Theodosius van Elder wrote in a pamphlet in 1651.  A portion of the pamphlet which read:  "The white woman is the virtuous part of the Bible, the prize above rubies, the jewel of God's heart, her hand is fair…but the black woman is the sex in the bible, everything about her is wicked."
