A Nigerian Nightmare (Article) - 11/6/2003 3:00:46 PM|
Nigeria is practising Wahabism. It's not what's been known as Islam in South Asia. Women are being exploited and abused the world over. I feel horrid for the bs being perpetrated in Nigeria in the name of a religion which liberated women from Slavery and gave them property rights - 600 AD -- way before European woman had any. Fact is all society is patriarchial and that's why men get away with such nonsense. Countries with such laws should be given ultimatums to reform by the UN and such organizing bodies. Countries should boycott them and teach them a lesson. Nigeria and many African countries have a lot of problems due to the population coming from different tribes. A lot of infighting. All this adds up to one minority tribe unleashing havoc on the others. What worries me is that countries like the US do business with them -- for Nigeria is OPEC nation -- and don't really press the cause of human rights. Politicians need to be less greedy and more human.
The Mystery of R. Kelly's Career (Article) - 8/19/2003 4:16:15 PM
Hey, interesting article...let me tell you I totally love R.Kelly and I support him especially cause he's from Chicago! but that does not mean that he is not guilty, but I do believe we should not judge nobody, but like u said we always do, whats alright is for all of us to have different opinions!

B!tch quit hatin. If you choose not to support R. Kelly, don't. But don't try n get high n mighty, tryin to tell othrer people what artist they should and should not support. Nobody was judgin Tupac or his fans who supported him when he was accused, tried, AND convicted of rape (And no, I don't think Tupac was guilty either). If it was okay to support Pac, it's okay to support R. Kelly, end of story.

This was an interesting view on R.Kelly's current success.
NOW Meddles Where it Doesn’t Belong (Article) - 4/27/2003 11:26:26 PM
The applicable California law specifically excludes voluntary abortion, yet another reason to wonder why NOW shrieked right off the bat. I recall the Furies were quite nice until the incident that riled them up - I don't remember what it was.

I've listened to his radio show, too.
NOW Meddles Where it Doesn’t Belong (Article) - 4/24/2003 7:58:35 PM
It seemed like the media couldn't decide what to call Connor-- I heard "late-term fetus", "baby", "unborn baby" and "late-term baby." It's understandable that NOW is scared that Scott will be charged with two murders... that could put an end to late-term abortions, which NOW somehow thinks liberates women. I think it would be far more liberating to not get into the situation in the first place-- if NOW really cared about women, they'd put more emphasis on pregnancy prevention, instead of concentrating on getting rid of pregnancies.

Thank you for the article that should be published on the front page of every paper in America. Maybe then Black americans can get the quality reporting they need from the media who has used their propoganda to insult americans and stagnate blacks all over the globe. Until we(blacks) start to address the real issues, we will constantly be in a position to insult each other about something so unimportant as what political affliation we are. Maybe with the infiltration of these parties, we can make changes. I'm constantly appalled by the lack of concern we have for a person or persons that stepped outside of the box and became just what the civil rights movement was about,overcoming to be seen not by the color of the skin but the content of the character and the qualities they possess as a person. What difference does it make if Dr. Rice or any other successful role model thinks that being an individual counts as much as race. I have never heard her defy her race as some people incorrectly assume. As a matter of fact her interview with the trotter group should dispel this rumor. Judge the lady based on her job and her ability not her color. Blacks are doing the very thing to her that we say we don't want anyone else to do to us; Stereotype us. Maybe her success has helped paved the way for someone that thinks differently from her. But no, we would prefer the correct role model for "our" race be a drug dealing ganster rappa wannabe that gives peeps and shout outs to all his or her homeys that died from black on black crime, that never voted (republican or democrat). Oh how the people would protest someone talkin badly about them. Wake up people! Forget the democrat Republican think, if there was so much to the party affiliation we would not be in the shape we are in today.
Lott's Got To Go (Article) - 12/23/2002 8:13:03 AM
Actually Lott is too dumb to be majority leader, but not at all too dumb to be a U.S. Senator. Washington State's (D) Senator Patty Murray, who recently praised Osama bin Laden to school kids across her state is in a firestorm of her own, for being equally dumb.
I'm glad that Lott stepped down as Majority Leader because his recent self-professed conversion on the the race/gender based preferences of affirmative action only prove he first of all, still doesn't get it (race/gender based preferences are themselves a form of segregation - segregates standards) and second, he doesn't have the passion to lead. A leader knows that when you're attacked, you attack back. He should've followed the path the RNC had laid out for him - "Attack Democratic support for preferences as support for modern segregation." They believed that not only would this resonate overwhelmingly among whites and Asians, but with many Blacks and Hispanics as well.
Apparently, Lott didn't have the stomach for that kind of confrontation. It's believed that Frist just may.
A Nigerian Nightmare (Article) - 11/19/2002 2:48:53 PM
Islam is NOT a 'religion of peace,' by any stretch of the imagination. Have they even made arrangements for the care of the baby after they kill her mother? How about the damage done to the child, who will grow up knowing that her birth caused her mother to be executed? Interesting that the man who caused this to happen will never be punished- mighty selective 'justice!'

Very well written. But only in America (and some parts of Europe) do you find people believing that inane cliche that "people are the same the world over." People are NOT all the same. Appx 4 billion of the earth's 6 billion human inhabitants are savages. These people still subsist in prehistoric conditions because they simply do not have the ability to do better...this is as good as it gets for them. /// Now I have an American bias, I'll admit that up front, but in my view, if every Muslim in the world croaked tomorrow, it wouldn't disrupt the West's economy one bit. In short, they wouldn't be missed. Their customs are ahistoric, their level of progress is negligible and worse yet...from an American viewpoint..."These low-lifes don't buy any of the stuff we produce, so f*ck'em." // Maybe ZPG (Zero Population Growth) has the right agenda - some sort of worldwide eugenics program to breed these saveages out of existance.

how sad...together, informed and united, we can stop this heinous act against a woman. amina didn't get pregnant by herself...why isn't the man that impregnated her being punished? go to oprah.com, sign the petition...together, we can make a difference and save a life. (((HUGS))) and love, karla. :(
A Nigerian Nightmare (Article) - 10/21/2002 11:00:43 AM
such a sad story. we must do ALL we can to get involved and write to the nigerian president (or someone similar), so they can stop this stoning. amina luwal DESERVES to live, as do ALL women facing similar fates. *LET US MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THIS YOUNG WOMAN'S LIFE* (i did, and so did my twin sister; go to oprah.com and sign the petition they have there. we care for amina, and the world needs to, too!!!!)
The McKinney Letter (Article) - 9/29/2002 9:04:15 PM
A very honest and impartial assessment. I think the Congresswoman was seeking media attention with that stunt...all politicians do. Look at New Jersey - Senator Robert Toricelli took truckloads of cash and gifts from David Chang, a go-between for both mainland China and the North Korean government. Today, Chang is in prison and Toricelli is running for re-election. For years politicians have disgraced themselves by putting the demands of fat-cat special interests ahead of the needs of the people they serve, but now, many even put the demands of fat-cat foreigners who do not have America's best interest at heart, ahead of the needs of their constituents. That's not just sad and pathetic, it's poisonous and down-right treasonous. // Fine writing!
Back to Normal? (Article) - 9/29/2002 8:55:12 PM
You're right that America isn't serious about this "war," nor about national security either and that means we've been plain lucky over the past year. // We have people arguing in defense of the Lackawanna, NY five who attended an al Qaeda terrorist camp last June (2001). The Court gave "Jihad Johnny" Lindh a mere 20 years for what amounted to high treason. The Constitution is plain on that - an American who takes up arms against his own government surrenders his citizenship. By rights, they should've left him with the Northern Alliance and let them punish him. The moment he joined that uprising, he was no longer an American. /// America is at high risk for further terrorist attack right now. // Fine writing!

What Should Be Done With Andrea Yates? (Article) - 8/11/2002 7:17:50 PM
It seems that people who break the law have more 'rights' than the rest of us. What about those kids' rights to grow up? Besides her husband also having a few screws loose, what was the matter with her obstetrician? With all of those pregnancies, I'm sure her doctor saw plenty of evidence that there was something wrong with her. Interesting that while birth-control went against her religious beliefs, she somehow found it easy to kill her children. How anyone can defend her is beyond me.
Michael Jackson Said, What? (Article) - 8/11/2002 6:11:33 PM
Very well written and right on point. There is a lot of abuse in the entertainment business and most of it transcends race. TLC were ripped off by their promoter, former pop singer Pebbles, who is also black. Established Hollywood movie studios have been known to rip off scripts (Universal Studios was nailed for ripping off Art Buchwald's story and turning it into "Coming to America") and established singers have been known to rip off songs (George Harrison got caught ripping off the melody to "He's So Fine" for his song "My Sweet Lord"). It's a dastardly but not uncommon thing, but I don't think Michael Jackson's claims hold up at all. He's damaged his reputation with weirdness and scandal and, just as it has with Woody Allen, that has consequences at the box office and at the record shop. /// Fine writing!

I don't know either. You have made some good points.

Very well-written and I agree all the way.

What does MJ mean, Sony is racist? What race is he supposed to be, anyway?? He looks like the title of one of his songs, "Black or White." He doesn't know what he is!! GREAT article...well written, Kimberly! :) (((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :)
