Another thing that we need to adress as a community is DIET.
You can't have a healthy mind with a polluted body.
My strong suggestion would be to go "all natural" when it comes to food. And put down the sugar and pork black people. It completely destroys you, both mind and body.
very true, many communitys are going the organic route, especially gardens, you know organic food is increasingly expensive.

Thank you, I will...! Hey I created and own a Black forum that’s very positive, fun and PEACEful. It’s new and growing and it’s about US for US. We have engaged discussions about the world/local news,African mythology/Black Nationalism,the arts, business/investment and from sports to relationships that affect the Black communities. You and anyone who would like to join are welcome.
I realize this site hasn’t been an African American forum since 2006, if you scroll to that year you will see when it all changed and it will never change back. So do you wait for change or do you change your surroundings and create what's best to change you. This was the only reason I return back to this site to give black members another option. I just had to switch my strategy up by posting and allowing them to announce my site that I added to my avatar. ;)
There are members from here and the other site on my forum with a stress free attitude. We all realized this site will bring out the worse in you. But hey, just something to think about.
Btw Guest and unregistered accounts can not post or view the threads on the forum…
Have a Blessed Day!
Thank you Dove. I understand where youre coming from. Thanks a mill for the link. Im in need of a good cerebral kick to start my day and end my week with this.

Bump this again :)

Answer1: Well we all know that as the years go by our society is getting more technologically advanced. I didn't write that article, but you have to admit that would definently help with the problem of blacks supporting black businesses
Answer2: Whether those black businesses support depends on if their in a black community or black majority town. I do not belive in going somewhere just because someone looks like you. I do think it would be hard for them to sacrifice and only the most dedicated would do that.
If i had the resources to makethe app i'd do it and then that the apple company would accept it. If not I could make a website that does the same thing.
Answer 1 - definitely -{the idea} "would definitely help with the problem of [Africans in America] supporting [our] businesses.

Answer 2 - I was not suggesting we relocate to open businesses. In fact, if we are astute to "Americanism", we would not even stress ethnicity. Our mentality would only be to compete while improving the communities we live. It is a must we hire persons who are qualified who look like us and live in that community but we should not exclude based off of superficial reasoning. Especially, if the community we are serving, we are not the majority or near the majority. If we do, we immediately exclude potential customers which is not a formula for financial existence for the long term.

We can compete without assimilating or taken on the mentality of the majority group. If our businesses did, our people would support them. To receive love, you must be able to give love.

I wish you the best of everything - enjoy reading your comments.

And God stepped out on space,
And He looked around and said,
"I'm lonely —
I'll make me a world."

And far as the eye of God could see
Darkness covered everything,
Blacker than a hundred midnights
Down in a cypress swamp.

Then God smiled,
And the light broke,
And the darkness rolled up on one side,
And the light stood shining on the other,
And God said, "That's good!"

Then God reached out and took the light in His hands,
And God rolled the light around in His hands
Until He made the sun;
And He set that sun a-blazing in the heavens.
And the light that was left from making the sun
God gathered it up in a shining ball
And flung it against the darkness,
Spangling the night with the moon and stars.
Then down between
The darkness and the light
He hurled the world;
And God said, "That's good!"

Then God himself stepped down —
And the sun was on His right hand,
And the moon was on His left;
The stars were clustered about His head,
And the earth was under His feet.
And God walked, and where He trod
His footsteps hollowed the valleys out
And bulged the mountains up.

Then He stopped and looked and saw
That the earth was hot and barren.
So God stepped over to the edge of the world
And He spat out the seven seas;
He batted His eyes, and the lightnings flashed;
He clapped His hands, and the thunders rolled;
And the waters above the earth came down,
The cooling waters came down.

Then the green grass sprouted,
And the little red flowers blossomed,
The pine tree pointed his finger to the sky,
And the oak spread out his arms,
The lakes cuddled down in the hollows of the ground,
And the rivers ran down to the sea;
And God smiled again,
And the rainbow appeared,
And curled itself around His shoulder.

Then God raised His arm and He waved His hand
Over the sea and over the land,
And He said, "Bring forth! Bring forth!"
And quicker than God could drop His hand.
Fishes and fowls
And beasts and birds
Swam the rivers and the seas,
Roamed the forests and the woods,
And split the air with their wings.
And God said, "That's good!"

Then God walked around,
And God looked around
On all that He had made.
He looked at His sun,
And He looked at His moon,
And He looked at His little stars;
He looked on His world
With all its living things,
And God said, "I'm lonely still."

Then God sat down
On the side of a hill where He could think;
By a deep, wide river He sat down;
With His head in His hands,
God thought and thought,
Till He thought, "I'll make me a man!"

Up from the bed of the river
God scooped the clay;
And by the bank of the river
He kneeled Him down;
And there the great God Almighty
Who lit the sun and fixed it in the sky,
Who flung the stars to the most far corner of the night,
Who rounded the earth in the middle of His hand;
This Great God,
Like a mammy bending over her baby,
Kneeled down in the dust
Toiling over a lump of clay
Till He shaped it in His own image;

Then into it He blew the breath of life,
And man became a living soul.
Amen. Amen.

-The Creation by James Weldon Johnson



When it's all said & done....We as BP will slowly begin embracing what the creator initially had set up for us. We may stray but the laws of Nature along with Time will bring us all back. All these things happenin' now are suppose to happen & reinforces the system we're currently under is "inferior" to the system ORIGINALLY set up by our Creator. This is Satan/The Devil/Hades whatever you want to refer to 'em as world now....hence all the world wide corruption & the breakdown of families, men, women & our children. I see more, more people are embracing & going to natural route on a lot of things which will always be far more superior since all things natural were created for a purpose while most man made was created for profit.
