I mean look at this month. It is February. Cold, snowy, and brutal just to name
a few. You got the Super Bowl, the Grammy's, The NBA All Star game, taxes,
CPAC debate, Egyptian riots and more. How can Black History compete with
all of that ? ? Are you kidding me. And this month aint even over yet.
So Reagan turned 100. But he is dead now. Whatever happened to psa.
Nobody seems to care about Black History. Nobody wants to hear about us
Black folks, now that Obama is in the White House. Not even my own people.
It is a shame.
What do you think ?

You are right, no one cares.

No one cares, and it's not a shame.

What do you think ?:

Why is that a shame? Do you honestly give a crap about Black History month, and if so, why? Do you feel unvalidated by not celebrating politically correct nonsense? Why don't we stop being hyphenated Americans and just be Americans.

Let's just change it to HUMAN history month, and actually teach our kids some history about how we all originated in basically the same place, and are all the same species. Then, we can all appreciate each other for the different cultures and histories which have culminated in such a diverse country.

Oh yeah, and Morgan Freeman was awesome in "Driving Miss Daisy."

My historical knowledge is pretty good, but I could do with learning more about African history, especially pre-colonial. However black history month is patronising and condescending. Like a bone thrown to a poodle.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Morgan Freeman narrates this amazing show on the Science Channel called Through the Wormhole. Some of the episode titles have been, Is There a Creator? How Did We Get Here? Is Time Travel Possible? The Riddle of Black Holes, etc. There's nothing like smoking a fattie and listening o Morgan Freeman tell me about the origins and nature of the cosmos/universe ;D

Can we consider Morgan Freeman to be a God?

He appropriately played god in Bruce Almighty if I remember correctly.

He does have the voice, for sure.. Plus he comes off as very intelligent.

Sure, why not.

There has to be a cult of Morgan Freeman out there somewhere already.

Morgan Freeman is the son of god.

Evan Almighty, it was. Freeman played God. And rather well, which shouldn't have to be pointed out.
