If you honestly think black people are in a worse position in 2001 than 1951, I question your understanding of history and your understanding of what the word "worse" means. In most measurable aspects (life expectancy, family income, employment, civil rights enforcement, etc), black life is better now than in 1951.

how can there be a "their" if you do not recognize racial difference? who would "they" be absent racial categorization?

how do you define "worst off"?

where are the contemporary leaders that rival them in effectiveness? who is "on point"?

Thoughtfully yours,

Check out my hip-hop brethren In Shallah
(Arabic for "God's will"); b-boy
conscious soul music for the world to
uprock to...

Imagine if Aceyalone was the
frontman for The Doors and you have
Miscellaneous Flux. Their four song
debut EP is on sale now. Want to hear an
MP3 to taste a sample? E-mail

(I said Ghostface before, but I think
Aceyalone is a better comparison...maybe
the delivery of Ghost and the lyrics of
Acey...ah, hell, just listen)

"the world may seem to cause you pain.
and yet the world, as causeless, has no
power to cause. as an effect, it cannot
make effects. as an illusion, it is what
you wish" denis johnson, "already dead"
