I noticed this in my travels to Latin America too. I was 18 when I first travelled to Mexico, I've also lived in Ecuador, volunteered in Costa Rica and visited Republica Dominicana. It is a typical experience to step into public transit and find two pictures: Jesus and a naked play girl. As a third generation who'd always hated religions, I thought these side by side pictures were so classy ;)

A perfect demonstration of religious hypocrisy.

Yes we do! Concerts with the nastiest comedians all thank the Lord. Strip clubs with strippers saying "I'm blessed and highly favored." Jesus gets more applause than some of the acts. More than 90% of male and female inmates are Christian. The pie in the sky talked about so well by Huey Newton is still alive and dragging us down the path to?

Omg, I have really noticed something, lately.


When, listening to Black R&B radio stations, they play a boatload of church music.  Now, when I am listening to a station that has mostly caucasian listeners, I never hear a church song.  Not a one!!!


On the R&B station, they over and over play that Kirk Franklin "Smile" song.  And that one song "he seen the best in me...".  Has anyone else noticed that? 


One minute, I am listening to Prince screaming "Do Me Baby", or something of that nature, then boom...Jesus music is on the radio.  I don't know, I find it kinda funny!


Our folks got it bad with this religion.

If one wishes to extend discussion of the topics below, it would be best to start a discussion thread. All I will say now, is that jazz is nothing like boxing. If jazz were about violence, I would have nothing to do with it; jazz incites the very opposite of a violent orientation. And no, I am not inspired beyond words.

If you've not done so, WATCH "When We Were Kings," the best documentary on my favorite person on earth, Mr. Muhammad'll learn A LOT and you'll be INSPIRED BEYOND WORDS.

George Foreman: “Boxing is like jazz. The better it is, the less people appreciate it.”

“I hit Ali with everything and he said ‘is that all you got’ and I said ‘yeah, that’s pretty much it.’”

Africa: Birthplace of Communism?

The famous African proverb stating that "It takes a village to raise a child" has begun to resonate among my growing Socialist values. This sentiment evokes a fundamental theme of maintaining strength and stability within a community.
