    The Trump Trick and The Bamboozeling of Black America

    in Entertainment

    Donald Trump is not the first presidential candidate to meet with black clergy to try to get endorsements and he wont be the last. Anytime the media puts forth this amount of effort to make you  pay attention to this political nonsense beware they are trying to keep you from paying attention to what is really going on.


    Just like we were so busy paying attention to Monica Lewinsky's dress that we didn't realize our governments announcement that it sent crack into Black communities and set us back 100 years. we are paying way too much attention to this nonsense. People please don't be Bamboozled or led astray!

    A discussion of the complexities of the polyamorous lifestyle with Joshua Neal

    in Lifestyle

    The Following is an excerpt from an essay written by Adjunct lecturer Joshua Neal on the complexities of the poly-amorous lifestyle. Adjunct lecturer Neal currently teaches undergraduate psychology while working towards his PhD.


    I can't say that I've always identified with the polyamorous life; as a younger person I often spent time imagining a future life as a father and husband. With time and experience though, I became skeptical about the prospects of long-term pair bonding. The lack of positive role models in this regard, coupled with my own personal experience left me somewhat crestfallen as to the plausibility of a lifetime union. My leery attitude towards marriage shouldn't equate with it being 'unnatural', because I don't believe that monogamy (or for that matter monoamory, the practice of exclusive sexual relationships) is unnatural either. However, in its current configuration it may be highly impractical. I can't make any claims as to the natural position of the human animal when it comes to romantic intimacy, either. Many intellectual pursuits have failed to identify the 'natural' human instinct towards love and family. If any 'natural' or original inclination can be surmised, it is that human behaviors and cultural practices change over time as we adapt to meet the demands of a constantly evolving environment.

    Joshua is also a musician, combat sports practitioner with interests in human optimization.

    Should we even be thinking about going to Mars?

    in Entertainment

    With all these Apocalyptic movies being made, After Earth, Mad Max, Resident Evil, World War Z, Terminator, Resident Evil, 28 Days Later and the list goes on and on. Now they say they have found water on Mars and we should be there by 2030. Are they trying to tell us something?


    With all the problems and injustices on this planet you would think they would want to fix this planet before we spend trillions trying to get to another one.

    Peonage (The Slavery that never goes away.)

    in Entertainment

    After the U.S. Civil War, the South passed "Black Codes", laws that tried to control freed black slaves. Vagrancy laws were included in these Black Codes. Homeless or even unemployed African Americans who were between jobs, most of whom were former slaves were arrested and fined as vagrants. Usually lacking the resources to pay the fine, the "vagrant" was sent to county labor or hired out to a private employer. The authorities also tried to restrict the movement of freedmen between rural areas and cities, to between towns. Under such laws, local officials arbitrarily arrested tens of thousands of freedmen and charged them with fines and court costs of their cases. White merchants, farmers, and business owners could pay their debts and the prisoner had to work off the debt. Prisoners were leased as laborers to owners and operators of coal mines, lumber camps, brickyards, railroads, quarries, and farm plantations, with the revenues for their labor going to the states. Government officials leased imprisoned blacks and whites to small town entrepreneurs, provincial farmers, and dozens of corporations looking for cheap labor. Their labor was repeatedly bought and sold for decades after the official abolition of American slavery. It seems like the more things change the more they stay the same.

    Help Dr. Umar Johnson raise money to save Black Children

    in Entertainment

    The following is a message from Dr. Umar Johnson.


    http://www.gofundme.com/drumar


    Good Day To All!


    I badly need your help! I'm trying to raise funds to acquire and rehabilitate either the Historically Black St.Paul's College in Lawrenceville Virginia, or the Chamberlain-Hunt Academy in Port Gibson Mississippi,  with the expressed intent of transforming one or both of them into the Frederick Douglass & Marcus Garvey RBG International Leadership Academy for Black Boys; which will be America's first private K-12 residential academy for African-American males based upon the principles of Traditional Afrikan Culture, Pan-Afrikan Leadership, Community Self-Determination & Cooperative Entreprenuership.  


    The FDMG Academy will chiefly provide our boys with serious Manhood Training and Discipline, which will enable them to return to their communities as leaders, husbands and fathers.  Our Agricultural Science and S.T.E.M. (Science Technology Engineering & Mathematics)Program will focus upon raising up the next generation of scientists akin to Dr. George Washington Carver (who once visited St.Paul's College) & Dr. Lewis Latimer.  Our Financial and Economic Sciences program will teach them the power techniques of the Real Estate and Commodities Industries; as well as Strategic Business Planning.


    Your Humble Servant,


    Dr.Umar Johnson, Psy.D, CSP, M.Ed.
    Doctor of Clinical Psychology
    Certified School Psychologist & Principal
    National Movement to Save Black Boys
    Kinsman to Frederick Douglass

    Why do we allow our children to fight unjust wars?

    in Entertainment

    The majority of reasons the government gives for wars fought by this county are found to be false. Unless you are blinded by patriotism you need to pull your head out of the sand and stop letting the military use your children. Most people don't join the military because they believe the country needs saving they join for the money. So basically they are hired hit men.
