Controversy Over MLK Memorial

Again, you are another individual who does not have a grip on the history of this particular problem. True, the Chinese gov't is not the artist, but this same artist is famous for his statues of the mass murderer Mao Tse Tung. Obviously, many people haven't even looked at his work. He is definitely NOT the best sculpturer. The Chinese gov't will be supplying the granite for the sculpture, which is obtained in China by using nothing short of slave labor (even though they use a different name for the labor). These same Chinese workers are not even provided proper masks to protect their lungs from the silica dust. They die in droves because the Chinese gov't considers them just as important as the students who protested in Tiananmen Square and had tanks rolled over them. They do not have basic human rights or civil rights, but yet a white architecture firm gave them the honor of sculpting Dr. Martin Luther King? As an AA woman, I would have chosen an African American Artist & American Granite, but I did not have a choice in this matter, even though I donated money from the inception of this idea along with many other AAs. ...and yes people forget too easily and are continuously doomed to be victimized in the same way.  (Aug 28, 2007 | post #70)

Controversy Over MLK Memorial

You're absolutely correct!!! Majority of the people commenting don't even know that Dr. King was labelled a "Reactionary Running Dog" by the Chinese government. People forget too easily.  (Aug 27, 2007 | post #59)

Jena 6 update, hanging tree cut down

There is a L.A. radio talk show host who speaks on the "Jena 6" situation in depth. I can never get his name. He on around early afternoon on V100 in L.A. He has a website. Does anybody know his name.  (Aug 27, 2007 | post #14)

Do Black People Understand Economics?

Smart!!! It took me two years to get out of debt myself. I didn't have a lot of debt, but it sure feels good not to have any outside of mortgage payment. I save and if there is something outside of real estate that I want, I save up for it if I don't have it. Credit cards for me are for emergency only. A disciplined person can use them to build up their credit score, but what I see in this country are very few disciplined individual.  (Aug 26, 2007 | post #53)
