As a rule, it is safe to say that man is never able to say just anything to just anyone. There are always subjects that, for whatever reason, are taboo. Peoples, or a majority, or a sizeable minority will always have some views of things that they are just unwilling to have questioned, must less criticised, must… Continue reading Let’s talk about Black Folks.
It has been famously said that there is nothing new under the sun. It was true thousands of years ago, and if the intervening years are any indication of the future, it will be true thousands of years from now.
