    So again when is white history month? Oh that’s right that would be racist if we had such a thing. And I thought blacks didn’t want to be called black anymore, I’m confused. Should it not be African American history month? Even if that very term is politically incorrect. I mean if I am black or African American I would think since the United States of America is my country then it should be American African! America is first when you are born here! But it is a moot point since blacks don’t want to be called blacks but we celebrate black history month.

    UNIVERSITY VILLAGE — Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan told thousands of followers Sunday he was planning to reach out to gang leaders to help “protect” the Nation of Islam. That came at the Nation of Islam’s annual Saviours’ Day convention. Farrakhan, 79, renewed the call for African Americans to pool money and buy as much land as possible, in order to “control means of production” and produce food and other goods, such as clothing.

    I believe Calypso Louie Farakhan needs to take his Saracen flock, board his spaceship and leave the planet.
