Today, while visiting the Smiley & West Show on Facebook which apparently is a "fan Club" I experienced what was intended to humiliate me and Black women by a "fan" who referred to me as b****. …Continue

In Cornell West and Tavis Smiley Speak out the question was asked?
What lessons of love (agape, eros, and/or philia) have you learned this year that you can institute as a tool of success in 2011?
What an interesting concept. I myself had to study these words and their origins. And damn if it did not enlighten me further in my determined quest to convince my people that we are not a wandering tribe.
Eros (from the Greek work word erotikos), is often thought of in a sexual sense, yet is also defined as having an intense and passionate desire for something.
Agape is irrevocably love for TGIA and for my people. When it is not returned, It is still there and Eros kicks in (again)
Philla represents my fondness for my people and the deep affection I have for my brothers and sisters. Some say it is in contrast to the sexual Eros.
This year as in the previous years of my existence, I have learned that should we combine the three (regardless of gender) we will not only be successful in our relationships with one another, we advance individual selves in God’s eyes and please him immensely.
In Numbers 2 we received our marching orders and knew our position in relation to our tribal members. This year I understand even more my place and my overwhelming feeling for my people continues to grow.
Yes it is an extremely sexual desire to be imbedded in my tribe (Eros) because of my deep affection for “WE” (Philla), and it will always remain so (Agape) regardless of those who do not adhere to the marching orders given us.
I just listened to Charles Stanley this 18th day of December he brougth back to my remembrance that God uses even the ungodly to his purpose.
Years before Micah prophosied that our Savior would be born, years before even the tax collector knew, God put into place situations that would would bring Mary and Joseph back to Bethleham to fulfill his plan. I have been washed in the Blood of The Lamb and I must believe His word, for if I do not , then all of my life, my mother's and father's…Continue
We have much work to do for "Obama 2012" and the work must start NOW. I just developed a spread sheet of President' Obama's Campaign promised of 2008 along with a check list of what he has accomplished and what others have conistently preventied him from accomplishng
It is so unnerving that some people have the audacity to say he has not accomplished his promised. It is time for his supporters to spread this word.
Our community is so stagnated in its…Continue
