I love Albany because it is rich in confirmations for B.F. Skinner and Ivan Pavlov. My dissertation is going to be rich with all of the responses that I get from these postings. Now, I have learned that there are three predominantly black institutions in Albany. My understanding is that Albany State University is the historical black college. Then, there is Darton State College, which is a predominantly black college now because the majority of white people have left the city and the only way for it to survive is to get black students that it previously did not want at its school. Then, Albany Technical College is the trade school for the majority of the community's underclass where the population is predominantly black.
Thus, this city has deep issues with denying that it is a predominantly black city. My research will be ground breaking because Albany is one of the poorest areas in the country. These posts help to show the context of deep seated racism that is alive and well in the southern U.S.
I regret that I will no longer post as a participant observer due to the facebook format coming next week.
So, I want to especially thank you Sister Ruby and Sister Ruby Two because you will get a whole section by yourself, of course under a different name, perhaps - Wow, diarrhea of the soul!
I wish you well and never mind what erudite said; it was woefully misguided.
No such chance. I must be like John crying in the wilderness until those who need to hear will hear. For you see, it is not about black people because Native Americans and Mexican Americans have had atrocities to happen as well. As a matter of fact, people of color all over the world have been tremendously exploited.
IT IS ABOUT HOW RACE HAS BEEN USED AS A SCAPEGOAT FOR THE RICH TO KEEP GETTING RICHER. Because every time a statement such as this one is made, it helps to confirm that the scapegoat system is working.
So never mind that the benefits gained from the black genocide and holocaust in the new world created the financial infrastructure for the U.S. to become the superpower that it has so your family could come here in the 1920s and benefit too.
Do tell whether your family in the 1920's were ever made to be animals???? Who made anyone God with the power to strip away any groups humanity. [Look at the Australian example of what they did to the aboriginal people and how they are atoning for their sins]. Do tell whether your family in the 1920s were considered 3/5s of a human being???? Do tell were your family members ever burned alive because they had white skin???? Do tell were your family members hung because they had white skin???? Do tell were your female family members studded (raped) to produce a herd of slaves???? Do tell were your family members systematically denied being able to read, to marry, to have a whole family, to worship, to find work, to not be terrorized????
So my friend, it is not black people holding onto to the truth of the past that is the problem; the problem is that the descendents of those who created the problems in past and internationals benefiting from the past who seeming feel they have no responsibility to address it. Seemingly ignoring the truth is easier.

I still hope that someone will seriously look at history and see if it is not true that the richest (who I will not describe by gender and race) get richer by keeping the poor and so called middle class (everyone else practically who don't happen to be males and white) distracted by stuff. So the scapegoats keep getting blamed for systems that they had no opportunity to create or shape.
So the true psychosis is the DENIAL of those who have been tricked by the rich and their subconscious DISPLACEMENT against those just trying to survive the misery caused by the rich!!!!
I have yet to hear the solution that this local area or country proposes to offer to address the centuries of stolen wages from a significant portion of the poor people who are castigated in these postings so often. Nothing from nothing leaves nothing. That is what America is guilty of when it condoned stealing wages from people and creating a system to ensure that they would be virtually wealthless for centuries to come.
So stop all the crying about the poor and find a solution to address the stolen wealth. Look at the math, 1/3 of the country makes less than 25,000!!! Why? Because the same robber barrons in different clothing are still stilling from the masses.
I hope that democracy's face will be saved one day by doing the right thing. Castigate those who created this mess, not those who are trying to survive it.
Wow our Gov. takes a stand on Bibles in state run organization, but when it comes to taking a stand our county schools systems in our state still condoning segregated proms, he's hands off.
I hope that some of those Bibles can make their way to those county schools systems still condoning segregated proms by way of letting parents and students sponsor the proms.
This type of events are good. However, they don't replace structural development of employment opportunities that are sustainable.
I hope we can focus on bringing those type of opportunities to Albany too.
I regret to hear what happened with erudite and sisterruby. I had already stopped posting because I saw that it was become a real waste of time. In the last couple of days, the nation has experienced too many tragedies that hit home. We are all God's children or people for remember we have an Atheists group here now. So, we are all humans who have different manifestations of genes, culture, and values.
Still, the bottom line is that Albany, Dougherty is not prospering. If the energy we generated in these comments could be channeled in a more positive way, world watch out.
I refuse to be used by Facebook as a customer. So, I won't be signing in on the new format.
Much success to all your futures.
Congress is to blame for all of this mess. The Republicans have made a mockery of this country.
I hope they are satisfied. Obama will go down as the greatest President of all times. In 8 short years, he will have had to endure almost 400 years of pent-up frustration of people who never wanted this country to be a country for all people, but only for wealthy, white, male landowners.
Do the research on policies in this country. Any policy contrary to favoring wealthy, white, males always gets criticized.
People better recognize, white privilege is only privilege for wealthy, white, males. Then, the rest of the country is pitted against each other while they go laughing to the bank.
One day, some of us will be free.
