Thankful


I dont say it enough but I am truly happy to have the oppurtunity to live and exist the earth at this time. I believe that with the access to information that todays technology affords can be use to create movements that are positive and strong enough to make fundemental change in people and nations. Or to be honest even the world. I am thankful to have grown up and existed in Prince Georges County Maryland. I believe that I am a product of those roads, streams, forrest, rivers ect. Those people were people who had worked, sweated and finally managed to build a better life for thier family. They were people who worked hard and tried to provide a bettr life for thier kids. On the weekends during the summer time they would grill in their backyards, and partied with family and friends and oh yes they would rock motown. Now it is time for all of us to make use of the comforts and time available to us to make the world (black america for now) a better place. Once the entire african american community is in a better place we will be able to make an even greater contribution to world betterment than is now happening.


When you include the ability to exchange info, learn from, and be tutored and mentored by the worlds most brilliant people via internet and blogs in my oppinion thier is no excuse for a signifigant amount of the american population not to be engaged in a meaningful and wholistic dialogue to make the world a better place. Thier is no excuse for a signifigant amount of the american population not to advace intellectually . All of these things apply twofold to african americans. It is essential to the well bieng of african americans and probably even the world the We (African Americans) make learning, debate and thought and implementation of the proggressive ideas that come out of that thought a priority.

P.S I predict some progressive and even revolutionary orginizations we be created out of such a process. Some of these orginizations are going to create projects that make america and the world a better place.

I agree mark totally, also by the way I have been coming by your blog -- and I constantly see that your blog is having a problem with the HTML code. You have added something in their that is to close to your other codes and this is what is messing up your blog. The commenting section is often blocked out. You need to do something about it, because it has no doubt kept people from commenting on your blog. You need to start over on a new template.

Really you need to do something it has kept some commenters from commenting.

Take care, mark

Yo Chance will you help me with that when I am at certain computers I cannot acess my blog.

I thinking about moving to wordpress but I need to learn how use it.


Also Im thinkig about moving certain pages to a personal website but the problem with that is that blogs allow you to do some things that websites dont.

Sure Mark I will help you, I will help you I will be emaling you in the morning so don't worry I have websites and blogs. I know how to use them both, and you definitly want a blog over a website.

mark said...

Mark I just went By your black history website, Recommend you add pictures to your side bars, pics about blacks like a photo of Fredy Douglas, W.e.b. Dubois, etc, also when you do your post once in a while add a photo to go with the audio essay (post) not all of the time but once in a while. Photos help a website and blog look more fasinating. You are doing a good job over there at that Black history website. I will be back this weekend to listen to the audion recording about the last slaves that where interviewed by the federal goverment.

You take care, Mark

Yo Chance I have been working on on the audio history blog for wordpress. I hate to admit it but this may take me a couple of weeks to figure out how to upload mp3 to a server.

If you have any more ideas please let me know.

Also if you know of anyone who would be interested in recording for this project please let me know here is the type material will be recording and up loaded to the net to make available to the world.

The Best [ Ghostface ] said...

I went to the page link and read what kind of material you would like to be recorded Mark. take your time with the MP3 player learning takes time, I will see you around.

Also, I am now using video on my website, someday I am going to record some essays with my voice.

What I love most about this post is your awareness that we must repair black Amerikka first. Until that time, we can't afford to play. There's work to be done.

By summer beginning, my husband and I plan to have a cultural center up and running, where we will teach our young to grow into manhood and womanhood the way they were meant to. We'll also teach them the reading, science, math and history that has been kept from them. I'll keep you posted.

"It turns out that although elephants are the largest and strongest of all land animals they were created with a design flaw. Thier size makes them slow and cumbersome"
-the stupidest statement about elephants ever..
Elephants can easily run at over 40km/h.
Watch youtube videos of elephants attacking humans. You'll see how fast/vicious they are.
Lions have no chance against elephants in general. And when elephants go berserk, the lions are at their mercy. Lions are cunning animals, and they don't attack unless it's like 1elephant vs. 10lions.
Watch the youtube video about 6 lions failing to take down a single giraffe.
One of my dad's friends went to Africa and actually saw a wild elephant trampling/crushing a strong male lion under his feet. THE LION DROWNED IN HIS OWN BLOOD. (Enough said)
