We Didn't Celebrate

When Obama got elected as president
Unless you were black you really couldn't imagine what it felt like or whwat it meant.
We were hoping the country had got pass the hate
We wanted as a race of people to celebrate.
But we had to use some common sense

Warning Please ****READ****

Good Morning,

Please BAS be careful when conducting business with people on this site or any other site. Everyone registered here is not for the empowerment of us. This I had to learn the hard way. I was swindled out of a little over $2000.00 by a "publisher" I met on this site.

Life Without Black People


A very humorous and revealing story is told about a group of white people who were fed up with African Americans, so they joined together and wished themselves away.

They passed through a deep dark tunnel and emerged in sort of a twilight zone where there is an America without black people.

At first these white people breathed a sigh of relief. At last, they said No more crime, drugs, violence and welfare. All of the… Continue

Happy Father's Day......

What he's not the father? How many times have we heard this question

and shook our heads wondering, where is the father. Why would a man

take on the rearing of a child that is not his? With father's walking

away, but wanting to dip in and out of the child's life and in some

cases the woman's, why would he want to be a part of the madness? When

it is sometimes clear that the woman's load of parenting is more than

she can bear and… Continue

confirmed unto us…

The Statue of Liberty

It is hard to believe that after my many years of schooling (secondary and post) the following facts about the Statue of Liberty were never taught.

Hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of people including myself have

visited the Statue of Liberty over the years yet I'm unable to find one

person who knows the true history behind the Statue...amazing!
