Harlem Then and Now

Earl Thinks Wrote: Aug 08, 2012 9:45 AM
The 'short' of a story is Harlem is incrementially being 'taken back' by White people. As you go West from the East or East from the West on 125th St., you will see renovations to those strong structured buildings and then being marketed as 'condos'. This has been going on for about the last 12-15 years and each time I return to Harlem for my annual, 'Fish n Chips' at the place that has been there for decades, I see more and more White patrons. It is an interesting development to watch. Just a thought.....

The NAACP No Longer Speaks For Me

The NAACP stopped speaking for Black Americans for several decades. They virtually sold their souls to the very people they were created to battle.Their relevence evaporated in the early 70's under the initial premise. They 'could' have changed course and 'Advanced' the elements within the Civil Rights Act of '64, but went into allegiance with the people who wanted to maintain the 'plantation' under the illusion of 'Freedom and Equality'. The survival of the organization 'trumped' the forsight of 'Advancing' into the next stage and phaze of particiation into the American proposition, where education and economic access would have been applied and we wouldn't be having this conversation at all.

Interesting assements. One correction. Whitey Ford broke Ruth's record for consecutive scoreless innings in a World Series with 33. The 'evolution' or 'develution' of the game,depending on how you look at it, makes it very difficult to come to conclusions based on pure numbers. I would suggest there has been a development in pitching that so impacted the early to mid 60's that they had to 'lower the mound' to 'make it fair'. Overall, the game of baseball is probably one that will always evolve technique wise as preparation and technology open doors for study on just how to throw and control the seams and hit a round ball with a round bat. Baseball is the most scientific of all sports.

Mixing and Matching

This is funny!!! Progressives 'really' believe that they are 'needed' and 'must' step up and manage society. That 'we' shouldn't have 'reasons' of our own to live and work in certain areas and apply our individual skills. And if we do have 'reasons', they are wrong,misguided and foolish. Yet another necessary task to create Utopia.

What more can I say. Dr.Sowell has a way of breaking things down, that are advertised as 'complexed issues', into a clearly identifiable misdirection from the truth. Left Wing 'Think Tanks', uninvolved, non-participants in 'everyday life' can only 'see' statistics. They travel in a small circle of people that are much like them, who also have little data. They sit among themselves and confirm 'misinformation' based on misinterpreted behavior, come to 'their' reasonings, then insert it into the framework of society. The thing that bothers 'me', is we let them. Just a thought.........
