the revolution of the mind continues...
"Black America, please stop appropriating African clothing and tribal marks." writes Zipporah Gene in a scathing editorial which asks...can Black people culturally appropriate one another?
Do African Americans insult the cultures, history and spiritual faiths of African tribes when they wear their marks patterns and religious symbols (and almost always int he wrong way).
The MadMen return tomorrow night with the debate of all debates. Have Black Americans been just as guilty of misappropriation when it comes to African culture or do Black Americans have the right to claim anything from the entire continent because it is the land of our ancestors?

African American Talk Radio is about sharing ideas and establishing relationships through which we build and leave an economic legacy for our children and their children. The one essential goal of Black Wall Street was to educate every child. Nepotism was the one word they believed in and right now in 2015, that is the place where we as a community must return.
