Michigan Universities Sue to

Delay Affirmative Action Ban
Mlichican's three major research universities asked a federal court in
Detroit this week to delay an upcoming state ban on the use of race and
gender preferences in university admissions and government hiring.
The Unirersirn of lMichigan, Michigan State Liniversit3 and \Wayne
State Lnii ersit\ want to complete this year's admissions and financial aid
cycles usmin the same standards that ha',e been in place since the process
began earlier this Near.
The legal motion relates to Proposal 2, a voter-approved initiative to ban
some t\ pes of public affirmative action programs. It is scheduled to take
effect Dec. 23.
The Michigan Cit il Rights Initiative, the group that organized and sup-
ported the Proposal 2 ballot drive. said universities have had plenty of
time to get iead\ for the changes in the state constitution.
Proposal 2 has been challenged in court by a pro-affirmative action
group called By Anm, Means Necessarx. The motion filed Monda\ is in
response to that suit, which includes the universities as defendants.

Jada Pinkett Smith Gives $1 Million

to Art School to Honor of Tupac
BALTINIORE Jada Pinkett Smith has
donated $1 million to her high school alma
mater, the Baltimnore School foi the Arts,
asking that its new theater be dedicated to
classmate Tupac Shakur, who was shot and
killed in 1996.
The donation from the Will and Jada Smith
Family Foundation, which is based in
Baltimore, will be used bfor renovation and
e\pansion. The school, which announced
the donation Monday, said it will name its
new theater for Pinkett Smith.
Pinkett Smith, 35, is married to Will Smith, who stars in the new movie
"The Pursuit of Happyness" with their 8-year-old son, Jaden.
The couple had previously given $112,500 to the school.
When a $30 million expansion program is finished in the fall of 2007,
the school v, ill increase its enrollment from 316 to 375 students.
Karen Banfield Evans, executive director of the Smith Family
Foundation, and Pinkett Smith's aunt, said the actress was moved by the
school's advances since she graduated.
Pinkett Smith wanted the theater named for Shakur because of the
friendship they developed at the school. The rapper died after a drive-by
shooting in Las Vegas.

Middle Class Blacks are Their

The Biblical quote, "Am I my
brother's keeper?" was made
famous by Cain after murdering his
brother Abel. If you're Black and
middle class, a recent study says,
the answer to that question is prob-

By Bill Westrom and David
Each month of every year, most
people struggle to make ends meet
and find that there is far more
month than there is money. It actu-
ally seems to be the American way.
For years, many Europeans have
been successfully managing their
personal budgets and capitalizing
on the financial tools that are readi-
ly available to all of us.
Unfortunately, no one teaches
these tactics to us in school and we
are left to our own devices. For
the privilege of holding our money
and providing the convenience of
accessibility, we are paid nearly
nothing in interest. Banks essen-
tially loan our money back to us, or
someone else, at a higher rate.
The truth is, conventional banking
and lending institutions are in the
business to make a profit. It is their
right to do so. It doesn't, however,
have to be at our expense.
Every consumer can save thou-
sands of dollars in interest charges,
take advantage of unrealized tax
deductions and eliminate current
debts in a fraction of the time. And
this can all be done without chang-
ing your lifestyle, without getting a
raise and without ballooning pay-
"It's not magic ... it's math". It's
one of the best-kept secrets around.
Just follow these 10 steps to
improve your financial health:
1. Take stock of your financial
portfolio Prepare a personal profile
spreadsheet. A free one is available
at www.ifsdevelopmentgroup.com
2. Look at the big picture
3. Educate yourself about tactics
and available tools
4. Purchase the book called
"Missed Fortune 101" by Douglas
R. Andrew.

5. Consider "good" debt versus
"bad" debt Good debt would be
like a mortgage that has tax write
off ability. Bad debt would be like
credit cards.
6. Make your equity work for you.
Remember "Balance divided by
Surplus equals Pay Off in years"
7. Reallocate resources and
restructure repayment of debt to
more favorably take advantage of
tax deductions.
8.. Look into tax free investment

vehicles and shy away from highly
taxed investment vehicles like
401k's and IRA's
This New Year, make a new finan-
cial start. Increase your profit
potential ... don't continue to add
to someone else's bottom line.
Being debt free in less than 15
years is within many peoples reach.
It may sound too good to be true,
but it is more attainable than you
may think, "it's not magic ... it's

The Etiquette of Introductions

Sheii AetvAnorking

Experts in etiquette and networking say that the general rule is to intro-
duce the name of the higher-ranking person first, or the person you most
want to honor first.
When introducing women, rank prevails over gender. If the man is
your boss, introduce him first. if he is a peer, introduce the woman first:
"Michael Jones, I'd like you to meet Jane Walker. Jane Walker, this is
Michael Jones. Michael is the manager of our department."
When introducing a customer to business associates, treat the cus-
tomer as a superior to honor the relationship. Say the customer's name
first: "Gregory Williams, I'd like you to meet Josh Archer. Josh, this is
Gregory Williams. Josh, Greg just purchased our new XL Computer
system. Josh is responsible for our customer service department."
- When introducing a superior to a subordinate, use the superior's name
first: "Jim Moore, I'd like you to meet Millicent Lee. Millicent, this is
Jim Moore. Jim is our new director of marketing." Use the first name
only if you are on a first-name basis.
- When introducing peers to each other, use either name first.
When introducing older people to younger people, you can ignore
age, but being old-fashioned myself, I use the older person's name first.
- When introducing persons with no business status, such as introduc-
ing your parents to a peer, say your parents' names first to honor them.
If you are outranked by a colleague, say the colleague's name first. In
this case, rank over honor.
Bottom Line: When making introductions, always show enthusiasm.
Let people know you are glad to meet them, and make sure you stand up
for all introductions, except when seated in a restaurant or when cir-
cumstances make standing awkward.

"So basically the middle class
Blacks were four-and-a-half times
more likely to be poor when they
were teenagers as the middle class
Whites," Pattillo said. "That's a
statement about the recency of the
black middle class."
In Pattillo's study, middle class
was defined as a family with an
annual income of $30,700-
$99,600. The government's poverty
line is $16,000 for a family of three.
Pattillo said middle-class Blacks
often have to help their poorer sib-
lings, but unlike their White coun-
terparts, most middle-class Blacks
are at a greater risk of loosing the
financial footing they've worked so
hard to gain.
"These middle-class Black folks are
less likely to be able to go to their
parents for help to buy a house.

Their parents are less able to help
their children (grandchildren). They
don't have siblings to go to if they
have a particular financial crisis, if
they have a health emergency or
their car breaks down," she said.
Past president of the Association of
Black Psychologists James
Savage said it's no surprise that
middle-class Blacks feel pressure to
help their poorer siblings and other
close friends.
"If you look at the Black family,
there's always been this poor layer
versus one that has been a little bet-
ter off who has always tried to
make a way for his lesser brother
and sister. That's how we ended up
getting this middle class by help-
ing each other," he explained.
Savage said more stress and strain
happens when well-meaning mid-
dle class siblings help out but then

feel they've been taken advantage.
"I think when you see the frustra-
tion coming, (is) when that person
who they're helping is not carrying
their weight in terms of accepting
the help and using the help," he
Pattillo said for most Blacks, their
main and often only source of
wealth is in their homes.
Pattillo said the purpose of the
study was to show that even mid-
dle-class Blacks still haven't
arrived yet, despite arguments
about them benefiting most from
affirmative action.
"When we hear the term 'middle
class', we assume, 'okay that group
of African Americans is okay. We
don't need to really worry about
them.' But being middle-class and
Black is very different than being
middle-class and White."

Johnson, a former resident of

Recently, I was walking through
a book store and saw a book enti-
tled, "They Stole Us, They Sold Us,
They Owe Us." It was a book that
outlined why blacks should receive
reparations. I was surprised
because I had not heard much talk
of reparations over the past couple
of years.
Argument for "Reparations" is
because of the government sanc-
tioned actions of the past, the U.S.
should pay reparations, in various
forms, to slave descendants for the
transatlantic slave trade. How you
figure how to identify all the
descendants of slaves is beyond
me, but that's what some radical
organizations are proposing.
Some proposals suggest a mixture
of cash payments from the federal
government and private corpora-
tions linked to the slave trade, land
distribution and social services.
According to of the proposals
introduced to Congress, "Through
reparations the government would
deed public lands in the South to
black people who can prove they
are descended from slaves." Of
proponents make the case that
"Through development of this land
they would gain pride of ownership
and a real stake in wider society,
which would cause positive socio-
logical effects throughout the
African-American community."
To simply state the question at
hand, should African American
receive reparations for slavery?
Better yet, should we even be talk-
ing about reparations in the year
The majority of blacks would
probably say yes. However, are
many blacks that will say that
while slavery has had a devastating
effect on black culture in America
we should simply move on? It's

water under the bridge.
I tend to lean towards that faction
of African Americans that feel we
should move on. And my basic
premise is that I try to be a realist as
much as possible and expecting
blacks to receive a monetary settle-
ment from the United States gov-
ernment is not reality.
Yes, I realize the impact that slav-
ery has had and is still having on
our community. Yes, I realize that
we are still playing catch up
because of the legacy of slavery.
Yes, I realize that millions of
blacks were killed as a direct result
of slavery, but at this point I think I
would prefer some sort of public
apology from the government and a
number of much needed social pro-
grams aimed at redeveloping and
empowering blacks to become
business and property owners.
Take my 40 acres and mule and
start a college awareness program
in the inner city that introduces
youth to college and helps them to
understand that education is the
pathway to success.
Take my 40 acres and start more
housing rehab and home ownership
programs for blacks. And while
you are at it, take part of my 40
acres and provide more free credit
counseling seminars for African
I will be happy to give my 40
acres to some of the schools in our
communities that don't have the
resources that schools in other
communities have. Take my 40
acres and put a computer lab in all
of the community centers in the
inner city.

Take my 40 acres and invest in
ways to figure how to tackle the
AIDS epidemic in the African
American community.
Now let me bring it home, I say all
of this to simply say that instead of
asking for 40 acres and our mule or
a station wagon, we should be ask-
ing for more realistic initiative that
directly affects our communities.
There are legitimate programs
and economic development initia-
tive that if properly managed could
turn around some of the issues fac-
ing the black community.
"Forty acres and a mule" was the
unkept promise made to Blacks
during the Reconstruction Period,
following the Civil War. This was
a promise that will never be kept,
so it's time that we move on and
look for other options. That's just
my opinion; thousands of others
look at this issue from a different
On the other side of the coin, pro-
ponents of reparations make a very
valid agreement.
In the past, the United States has
paid reparations to other minority
groups such as Japanese Americans
after World War II. This is one of
the key premises that some site
when arguing for reparations and
insisting that America continues to
practice discrimination against
African Americans.
The lingering effects of slavery
have been a continuing issue with-
in the African-American communi-
ty for many years. All of us are
painfully aware of the damage
racism did to African Americans as
it expressed itself through slavery,

Talking About Reparations in 2006

racial segregation and discrimina-
tion. Proponents say if you look at
the legacy of slavery alone it is
enough to rationalize the need for
the United States to make good on
its promises after emancipation.
Approximately four million
Africans and their descendants
were enslaved in the U.S. from
1619 to 1865. Slavery in our coun-
try was constitutionally and statu-
torily sanctioned by the govern-
ment from 1789-1865. Yet our gov-
ernment has never actively studied
the effects of that slavery and pos-
sible recompense to its victims.
It is estimated that approximately
600,000 African American lives
were lost during the Civil War,
while historical accounts place the
loss of black life directly related to
enslavement at between 10 million
and 100 million.
In Congress Representative John
Conyers has been a strong propo-
nent for reparations. Every year
without fail, Congressman Conyers
introduces H.R. 40, a bill that
would create a national commis-
sion to study the impact of slavery
and recommend measures to reme-
dy the damages done to Black peo-
ple as a consequence of slavery.
Nothing has ever happened with
the bill, but you have to respect
Conyers for his commitment and

far as I am concerned. Let's focus

What Parents Don't Know Can

Hurt Them and Their Children
By Djana Milton
This past August 4. Lemnel and Julia Redd took their daughter Julianna
shopping, but the\ b: passed the local mall and drove 240 miles from
Piovo. Utah to Grand Junction. Colorado. Julianna's parents never planned
to take her shopping. Instead, it %%as a last-ditch attempt to keep her from
getting married the next day.
Julianna still got married, and her parents now face second-degree felony
kidnapping charges.
As odd as this all sounds, it's een stranger that our legal system seeks to
punish the Redds %while it remains perfectl, legal for unrelated adults to
take minors across state lines for inrasite medical procedures, such as
abortions, without parental know ledge or consent.
Noted German theologian Dierrich Bonhoeffer said. "The ultimate test of
a moral society is the kind of world that it leaves to its children." If the lib-
eral obstruction in the Senate that led to the legislative failure of the Child
Interstate Abortion Notification Act ClA-NA) is any indication. America
has work to do before it can pass tile Bonhoeffer's test.
As written, the bill which passed overwhelmingly in the House of
Representatives during the 109th Congress would make it a federal crime
to take a minor across state lines in order to circumvent state abortion laws
as well as require parental notification. These are unresolved problems that
breed unaccountabilit and uncertainty. It also creates a potentially dan-
gerous situation due to the fact that mans \ young girls who get pregnant also
say they are victims of abuse. Statistics compiled from government and
non-profit organizations and posted on the web site of the group Darkness
to Light note:
Adult men fathered almost 50 percent of babies born to girls between
the ages of 15 and I :
Of teen pregnancies in which the age of the father is known, approxi-
matelh seen in ten fathers are 20 .,ears old or older:
One sure of 535 teen mothers found that approximately two-thirds
reported to hat e pre\ iousl\ been, molested or the \ ictim of rape or attempt-
ed rape. The abused teens also noted engaging in sex earlier and that they
are their children were more likely to become ictinms of further abuse and
A sur\ev of 445 teen mothers found 60 percent of them said sexual
encounters were forced upon them.
Additionally. according to an October 2004 special report of the Medical
Science Monitor. a sure\ of American w omen seeking abortions found 64
percent said the\ "felt pressured b\ others" to do so.
Considering the likelihood that a teen entering a pregnancy center could
be a ,ictini of abuse, it is surprising that it is not already a requirement to
notify, parents or at least a social worker of impending procedures. The
abortion industry and the powerful special interests supporting it, however,
are steadfastly opposed to notification.
As a result, parents \ho are responsible for protecting their children from
so many things become mrtmuall, powerless against sexual predators.
Opposition to parental notification \ within the abortion industry seems tied
to their financial motivations. In the 2000-2001 fiscal year, Planned
Parenthood declared 77-4.1 million in assets. That's big business! Faced
with the choice of protecting the vulnerable or their income, the bottom line
seems to prevail with groups of this sort.
Some extreme detractors of notification ma% ask. "Wouldn't notification
further endanger girls who are the % victims of incest?" What better way to
end the victimization than to report the crime to someone who can stop it?
Facilitating an abortion treats onl\ the unfortunate aftereffect. Most minors
would still have fe\w options but to return to the environment where the
problem originated. The only w\a ntul\ to allet tate such a crisis is to deal
with the perpetrators, which is possible through notification.
Although the apparent failure of abortion clinics to protect minors is dis-
concerting, it's precisely this arena in which parents can make a difference.
Any marginally responsible parent would take decisive action to combat
further exploitation and ensure a daughter's abuser was brought to justice.
This defines the difference between parents, whose invesnnent in their
daughter is heartfelt, and an abortion pro\ ider or other adult. The kind of
world we leave for our cluldren matters to no one else as much as it does
to parents nor is the burden of responsibility nearly as great
French philosopher Voltaire wrotc. "Those w\ho can make you believe
absurdities can make 'ou commit atrocities." It is absurd to suggest that
those who sow the seeds of deceit between parent and child are operating
out of altruism.

Community Mourns Loss of Curlue Huger

Continued from page 1
She received her Masters degree
from Florida A& M University and
a Specialist in Education from
University of Florida. She was
employed by the Duval County
School Board as a teacher and
administrator for over 30 years
before she retired.
Ms. Huger was a faithful member
of The Greater New Birth
Missionary Baptist Church for
nearly twenty years. There she
served as youth coordinator,
Sunday School Superintendent,
Summer camp director, and
Missionary Society. Over the
course of years she served as
church musician for numerous local
churches including Tabernacle
Baptist Church, Ebenezer United
Methodist Church, Mt. Carmel
Baptist Church, Greater Payne
A.M.E Church St Paul Lutheran
Church, Mt. Tabor Baptist Church,
St. Andrews Baptist Church, and

Jerusalem Baptist Church.
She held memberships in a vari-
ety of organizations including the
National Council of Negro Women,
Order of Eastern Star, Gems Bridge
Club, River City Aces Duplicate
Bridge Club, Northeast Florida
Chapter of Sickle Cell, Tuesday
Morning Bridge Group, and
Arlington Exclusive Social &
Savings Club. In these organiza-
tions she held numerous offices
including President, Basileus,
Regional Director, Treasure, and
Chaplain. She was also involved in
numerous community activities,
especially those focusing on youth.
She was a dedicated mother of
five: Pamela King, Rickki King,
Gary King(deceased), Darryl King
(deceased),and Tangee Huger. One
grandson, Jean King (deceased),
one sister, Linda Gibbs, and one
brother Daniel Ezell Jr.(deceased).
Her extended family included a
nephew many cousins, aunts,
uncles, and several God children.

In 2004, Mrs. Huger was selected
as the Jacksonville Free Press
November Unsung Hero where she
eagerly shared with readers a per-
sonal side of herself. Not only was
she an avid community servants,
she also loved playing Bridge and
attending Jaguar football games.
Most of the volunteer community
become involved for short term
goals instead of making it a lifetime
commitment. When asked what
kept her motivated, Mrs. Huger
replied, "It's amazing how receptive
people are, even for the smallest
things you do for them. The feeling
of gratitude that you made a differ-
ence in someone's day, someone's
life, is all the motivation you need."

The presidents of the University
of North Florida, Edward Waters
College and Florida Community
College at Jacksonville announced
that former Sheriff Nat Glover has
been retained by the institutions to
be an envoy to the community,
encouraging students to stay in
school and pursue a college degree.
The presidents of the institutions all
spoke to how education is the key
to solving a variety of community
problems such as crime, unemploy-
ment and racial tension.
"A college graduate will earn $1
million more in his or her lifetime
than someone without a college
degree. I'm going to try to orient
our local kids toward staying in
school until they graduate from col-
lege," said Glover. "There are great
local options here in Jacksonville,
and I'm going to try and steer stu-
dents to the appropriate institu-
UNF President John A. Delaney,
EWC President Oswald Bronson
Sr., and FCCJ President Steven
Wallace stated that their respective
institutions don't compete for stu-
dents, though it isn't uncommon for
students to attend two of the institu-
tions in advancing their academic
careers. For example, Glover
received his bachelor's degree in
social science from EWC and a
master's in education from UNF.
"We need to put a face on higher
education with the young people in
our primary and secondary schools,
and Nat can really reach out in that
community for all of us," said
Delaney. "I see Nat as an ambassa

"We're going to make sure that
every kid that is eligible to go to
college, goes to college," Glover
Glover will be a special advisor to
the president at UNF on a part-time
basis and will assist in other inter-
nal matters at UNF, including man-
agement and donor relations.
Additionally, he will steer students
to EWC and FCCJ, where appropri-
"Nat Glover is the perfect man for
this job. He comes with a wealth of
experience as a community leader
with a vision and passion. He has
spent his own time and resources to
champion the cause for the educa-
tion and empowerment of our
youth," said Dr. Oswald Bronson,

president of EWC. "Edward Waters
College welcomes the energy, the
vision and the passion Nat will
bring to forging a true collaboration
between our three institutions in
this critical area."
"This appointment aligns with the
Blueprint for Prosperity, the
Prosperity Scholarship Fund and
other efforts of government, corpo-
rate and educational leadership to
strengthen our region's educational
level and ultimately our economic
development. Nat Glover, by his
experience, character and reputa-
tion, is the ideal individual to per-
suade and encourage these young
citizens onto the path toward suc-
cess for themselves and their com-
munity," said Dr. Steven Wallace,
president of FCCJ.
Glover was elected Sheriff of
Jacksonville in 1995, serving in that
position until 2003. He first showed
a commitment to higher education
as an elected official by requiring
all new hires in the Jacksonville
Sheriffs Office to have a bachelor's
degree, then by donating his own
pension benefits, worth nearly a
quarter of a million dollars, to a col-
lege scholarship fund for deserving
low-income children.
He joined the Jacksonville
Sheriffs Office in 1966, becoming
an investigator in the Detective
Division in 1969 and getting pro-
moted to sergeant in 1974. Glover
also headed the Police Hostage
Negotiation Team and served as
chief of services. He was later
named deputy director of Police
Services, one of JSO's top posi-

Florida A&M University's National Search : M"f

for a President Narrows to Six Candidates ,

The national search for a perma-
nent president at Florida A&M
University took a giant step forward
last week. Six candidates will be
presented to the full Board of
Trustees for consideration on
Thursday, upon the recommenda-
tion of the Board's Presidential
Search Committee.
"We have some very strong, very
talented candidates," said FAMU
Trustee Laura Branker, who co-
chairs the search committee with
Trustee R.B. Holmes. "We look for-
ward to seeing them all."
Among the 12 candidates brought
to the committee by The Hollins
Group, a Chicago firm hired by the
Board to handle the presidential
search, there were two sitting uni-
versity presidents, several CEOs, a
federal administrator and several
university administrators. Two

FAMU alumni were also on the list.
The six who will be invited to
FAMU Dec. 14 and 15 for inter-
views are (in alphabetical order):
James Ammons, president,
North Carolina Central University
(Durham, N.C.)
Lawrence Davenport, executive

Hollins Group. "FAMU is still well-
regarded across the nation. There
were a number of highly qualified
individuals who were very eager to

progress that has been made. He
said the committee expects to name
a president in March.
"There were two key words
involved in this process," Branker
added. "Inclusive and transparent. .

Duke Adds Black Studies Department

Duke University's Board of
Trustees have approved elevating
Duke's African and African
American Studies (AAAS)
Program to departmental status.
Academic departments at Duke
offer undergraduate and graduate
degrees. Because the AAAS pro-
gram currently offers an undergrad-
uate degree and a graduate certifi-
cate, it already functions much like
a department, said Arts & Sciences
Dean of the Social Sciences Sarah
AAAS has 15 core faculty mem-
bers. Some 50 other Duke faculty
members, whose teaching, research
and cross-listed courses contribute
to scholarship in AAAS, are desig-
nated as faculty affiliates.
Currently, 33 undergraduate stu-
dents major in African and African
American Studies, 22 undergradu-
ates minor in it and 24 graduate stu-
dents are enrolled in the graduate
certificate program.

"As the mission of AAAS has
expanded, it has become appropri-
ate to graduate from program status

to that of a full department," said
Dean of the Faculty of Arts &
Sciences George McLendon.

Harvard Offering Free Tuition

for Low Income Students
Harvard University has announced that from now on undergraduate stu-
dents from low-income families will pay no tuition. In making the
announcement, Harvard's president Lawrence H. Summers said,"When
only 10 percent of the students in elite higher education come from fami-
lies in lower half of the Income distribution, we are not doing enough. We
are not doing enough in bringing elite higher education to the lower half of
the income distribution."
If you know of a family earning less than $60,000 a year with an honor
student graduating from high school soon, Harvard University wants to
pay the tuition. The prestigious university recently announced that from
now on undergraduate students from low-income families can go to
Harvard for free. No tuition and no student loans! In addition, Harvard
announce reduced fees for students from families with incomes between
$60,000 and $80,000.

Blood Diamonds: There's More !

to 'Bling' than Meets the Eye

^ .-- .... .. ..
.- ;
, .. .. ,Sr I ," :. ..

Miners pan for diamonds in northeastern Sierra Leone and shown
right, ads for diamond traders in the streets of Kenema, Sierra Leone.

During the holiday season, enam-
ored boyfriends and husbands often
choose diamonds to make a roman-
tic statement. But this season, the
Warner Brothers film, "Blood
Diamond" and hip-hop mogul/
entrepreneur Russell Simmons are
using the gems to make a global
statement about diamond mining in
And not everyone understands
what that statement is or agrees
with it.
Last week, Simmons returned
from a nine-day "fact-finding" mis-
sion in Africa, where he visited
some of Africa's largest diamond
mines in Botswana and South
Africa, promoting the use of con-
flict-free diamonds. He also
announced his "Green Initiative"
that will give 25 percent of net pro-
ceeds from his Simmons Jewelry
Company's men's line to schools
and hospitals of African mining
communities through the Diamond
Empowerment Fund.
In 2003, government, non-gov-
ernment and diamond industry offi-
cials came up with the Kimberly
Process Certification Scheme to
keep conflict diamonds from being
sold on the international market.
Conflict diamonds are generally
defined as those mined in certain
zones in Africa and are used to fuel
or fund civil wars.
During Simmons' visit that
included meetings with a number of
African dignitaries, Simmons said
he was particularly impressed with
one country and it's treatment its
"Certainly the example in
Botswana, where the number one
diamond mine in the world exists,
was inspiring," he said. "(It's) a
place where 35 to 40 percent of the
people have HIV and yet they have
the best HIV programs in the world
and they're really doing a lot of
good work there...All the educa-
tion, the schools-just about every-
one in the country is funded by the
resources of the diamonds. Eighty-
five percent of all the profits that
come out of the ground go back to
the Botswanian government,"
Simmons said.
According to the Embassy of
Botswana's Web site, just 30 years
ago, Botswana was one of the 20
poorest countries in the world. In
2000, Botswana exported $2.2 bil-
lion worth of diamonds. The coun-
try of 1.7 million people has been

recognized by Transparency
International as having the "least
corrupt government in Africa."
Simmons says while some nations
are still using conflict diamonds
that finance rebel movements, the
majority of diamonds on the market
are conflict-free, including his
The Kimberley Process has
encouraged about 45 nations to fol-
low strict regulations designed to
weed out conflict diamonds from
international commerce.
According to the Kimberley
Process, its participants account for
99.8 percent of the global produc-
tion of rough diamonds.
How those numbers are perceived
troubles Mel Foote, executive
director of Constituency for Africa,
and Amnesty International's Bonnie
"I think there are some other
dynamics at work out there that
deals with Africa and natural
resources and it deals with oil, it
deals with gold, it deals with tim-
ber, it deals with humans, us,
slaves," Foote said.
Foote said while diamonds are
important to the "hip hop crowd
and White people... it don't deal
with most of us."

The Life of a Miner
At a bend in a tributary of the
mighty Congo River, dirt-poor vil-
lagers feverishly pan for the shiny
stones that have proved as elusive
as they are rare -- diamonds.
Hundreds stake their claims here
hoping to strike it rich in this, the
fourth-largest diamond-producing
country in the world. Officials say
that last year, diamond exports from
the Congo grew to $2 billion, near-
ly one-fifth of the country's gross
domestic product.
But what these villagers don't
know -- or hardly care about -- is
the fact these are some of the pre-
cious stones that have, according to
experts, indirectly fueled some of
Africa's dirtiest wars from Sierra
Leone to Liberia and from Angola
to Congo. They're known as con-
flict diamonds or, more bluntly,
blood diamonds. And in this corner
of the Congo, men and boys con-
stantly mine, hoping to find a way
out of poverty.
To get to Congo's diamond district,
visitors fly to Mbuji-Mayi at the
center of this vast nation, then drive
for about 90 minutes on dirt roads

until they arrive at Dipumba.
Once a village, the entire land-
scape is now pockmarked with
holes the size of water wells, holes
that a man can barely squeeze into.
But squeeze they do, and villagers
like arrive at daybreak. Their tools
are simple -- an old pick, a simple
rope, a torn sack. They don't have
shoes, gloves, hard hats or flash-
They make their way down into
the tiny well. The mine shafts are
deep, dark, cold and very danger-
ous. The walls are unsecured.
Accidents are frequent and many
miners have been buried alive in


these pits.
Yet they keep digging.
"It's terrible here," he says. "All
we do is work from morning to
evening and most of the time we
come up empty. I can't think of a
worse way to make a living." Said
one miner named Mbosa Mbenga
But many here don't have a
choice. Work is hard to come by
and many are tired of fighting in the
various militias that roam these
badlands. These men and boys want
to make an honest living.
But to them it just seems that the
poor seem poorer than ever.
Mbenga, who's been digging for
diamonds for more than two
decades, says he once dug up a one-
carat stone that he sold for $500.
He thought he had finally struck it
rich, but by the time he divided the
earnings among his team and paid
the man who leased the land where
he digs, he had less than $50 left.
"That's the life of a miner here," he
says, "We work and work until our
hands bleed and all we end up with
is peanuts."
Who buys his diamonds?
"Anyone," he says, "just as long
as they have the money."
And that's exactly the problem.
Legitimate diamond sellers and
activists have argued to change the
system for the past decade. They
want to curtail the illicit sale of dia-
monds to unscrupulous middlemen
and, in some cases, militia warlords
who use the diamonds in exchange
for arms to fuel Africa's endemic
civil wars.
It happened in Sierra Leone in the
1990s, where as many as 200,000
people were reportedly killed and
many others had their limbs hacked
off by rebels determined to take
control of the country's rich dia-
mond deposits.
Sierra Leone is the setting for the
new movie "Blood Diamond."
Leonardo DiCaprio plays a crooked

Zimbabwean ex-mercenary who
searches for a rare pink diamond. (
It's a movie that should stir contro-
versy about just how careful the
precious gem industry has been in
making sure diamonds are bought
and sold legally.
In the Congo, a country that has
seen its fair share of civil wars and
where corruption and mismanage-
ment are rife, it's hardly conceiv-
able that diamond sales can be fully
monitored, when lawlessness and a
frontier mentality are prevalent in
cities like Mbuji-Mayi.
Most of Congo's diamonds are
exported through a state-run com-

pany, but in a country that was
overrun by one dictator after anoth-
er for more than 40 years, experts
say that getting diamonds out of the
Congo illegally has been an-all-too-
common occurrence. The diamonds
have fueled war, coups and more
war, leaving many Congolese poor
and desperate.
On this interview day, Mbenga
finds nothing and on his way home
he buys his family the only thing he
can -- a tiny loaf of bread. He
knows he has to go back down into
the shaft first thing tomorrow, and
the next day, and the day after that.
He is determined to find wealth
down there no matter the cost,
human and otherwise, or how long
it takes.

Q: When is the first day of school for Duval County students next
A; There were two 2007-08 calendars approved by the Duval County
School Board during its December 5th meeting. One calendar places the
start date for students at August 20, 2007 to comply with the state mandate
(Florida Statue 1001.42) that requires school districts to start school no
earlier than two weeks prior to Labor Day. The other calendar identifies
August 7 as the start date. The latter calendar is the one that is most desired
by district officials to ensure the consistency of prior school years, which
allows the district to continue its practice of completing the first semester
prior to the holiday break and start fresh with the second semester in early
January To review complete calendars, please visit our Web site at
Q: My daughter is a third grade student at Lake Forest Elementary
school and is in need of extra help for the FCAT. Is there a book that
can be used at home to help her prepare?
A: To increase the comfort level of students and parents, the Florida
Department of Education released sample reading and mathematics FCAT
tests for grades 3, 7, 9, and 10. A copy can be obtained by visiting the web-
site http://www.firn.edu/doe/sas/fcatrelease.html.

Records Said to Dispute

Tuskegee Airmen Lore

been part of the lore of America's
first black fighter pilots since the
end of World War II: The Tuskegee
Airmen never lost a bomber to
enemy fire.
But now, more than 60 years later,
a leader of the group says he has
uncovered records proving the
claim is not accurate.
Air Force records show that at
least a few bombers escorted by the
red-tailed fighters of the Tuskegee
Airman were shot down by enemy
planes, William F. Holton, historian
of Tuskegee Airmen Inc., said in an
interview. And the group's losses
may have been much greater, he
Holton's research was first report-
ed last weekend by the
Montgomery Advertiser.
Some surviving members of the
group were offended by the find-
ings of Holton and Daniel Haulman
of the Air Force Historical
Research Agency at Maxwell-

Gunter Air Force Base in
Montgomery, who came to the
same conclusion.
Former Tuskegee Airman Carrol
Woods of Montgomery called their
claims "outrageous."
"I think they are trying to destroy
our record. What's the point now?"
Woods, 87, told the Advertiser.
Holton said his sole interest is in
making sure the group's history is
as accurate as possible.
The president of the Tuskegee
Airmen Inc., retired Air Force Lt.
Gen. Russell Davis, said he will no
longer claim in speeches that the
group never lost a bomber.
"I'm going to drop (it) until we
can get this thing clarified," Davis
said. "We've got some homework to
do, obviously."
The Tuskegee Airmen were the
first group of black fighter pilots
allowed into the U.S. Army Air
Corps. They got their name from
the Alabama town where they

Lisa Raye Dispels Divorce Rumors

by K. Yarbrough, EUR
Just months into her new marriage
LisaRaye had to start dodging
rumors about her wedded bliss. The
actress and First Lady of the Turks
and Ciacos Islands, is taking the
negative attention in stride and
chalking it up to celebrity, all while
denying the rumors the she and new
hubby, the Honorable Michael
Misick, are having trouble.
Rumors recently surfaced last
month that the starlet and the
Premiere were headed toward
splitsville, built on grumblings of
infidelity and that the people of the
islands were not particularly fond
of their new First Lady LisaRaye.
But the actress says it's all false.
"There were some rumors going
around that Michael and I were get-
ting a divorce and that the Islanders
were saying they don't see me down
there a lot," she reviewed. "I don't
really know how these accusations
came out that Michael and I are get-
ting a divorce. Especially when I
am still in my honeymoon stages
right now."
Raye said that perhaps people just
don't believe that the two could be
so in love so fast, but whatever the

Beyonce Diet
Continued from page 10
That's right. A complete fast is the
key factor in this ten to forty day
diet. In fact, the only thing follow-
ers are allowed to put in their bod-
ies is water. And not just any old
water. It has to be water mixed with
lemon, maple syrup and cayenne
Burroughs' diet has picked up
many devotees over the years,
despite skepticism from the med-
ical community. Instructed to drink
six to twelve glasses of lemonade
throughout the day, fans of the
unique cleansing experience claim
that it can also help to cure a num-
ber of ailments. This includes those
classified as mucus diseases, such
as allergies, asthma and the flu.
Skin disorders and cholesterol are
also wiped away by this not-so-typ-
ical fast. But it's not as simple as it
sounds. A whol' host of problems
can accompany this diet, including
dizziness and, in severe cases, even
vomiting. But the diet claims that
this is not due to any lack of vita-
mins, as the lemonade provides
everything that the body needs. It is
simply a matter of all the poisons
now circulating in the bloodstream.
To counter feelings of sickness, the
diet recommends drinking a laxa-
tive tea, which helps to stimulate
bowel movements.
Once you've lost those pounds
you've been longing to shed, don't
expect to go on a food binge the
very next day. Easing back into
whole food is a somewhat slow
process. After the first and second
day, dieters are restricted to several
8 oz glasses of orange juice. The
third day includes more orange
juice, as well as a bit of raw fruit
for lunch and some raw fruit and
vegetables for dinner. After the
third day, you're ready to eat nor-
mally again. Though, of course, the
diet recommends continuing on
with the lemonade drink for break-
fast and limiting yourself to a fruit,
vegetable, seed and berry diet in
the future.

reason, she ensured that there is
absolutely no trouble in paradise for
the newlyweds.
She reiterated that the two are
quite happy with their lives as a
couple and with their careers apart.
"It's a wonderful relationship as far
as being bi-coastal so to speak," she
said. "It allows me to be able to
have my career. I want to keep that
and hold that. That is who I am and
that is who I was when he met me.
So he has no qualms about me stay-

supporting me in that. And I don't

down there and running his country.
He respects his people and he loves
his island. Through that love and
passion, he has opened up a new
world for me. So I have the best of
both worlds. I get to work in L.A.
and then I get to go down and be the
First Lady and stand by his side."
And as for the Islanders not lik-
ing her? Lisa Raye said she was
quite surprised to hear that rumor.
"I make sure that I don't have the
celebrity type unapproachable per-
sonality when I am there. The peo-
ple there are so loving and so wel-
coming to me. When I am there, I'm
home. They've accepted me with
open arms and I appreciate that."
The actress said that she supposes
it all comes with the celebrity terri-
tory and has chosen to mostly disre-
gard any rumors or accusations
swirling around as she is quite sure
of what's going on in her own life.
"You can't listen to it all," she
advised. "You kind of keep yourself
in the know of things, but you can-
not let it run your life. I have so
much on my plate right now; I can't
cloud my mind with that junk."
When the actress/First Lady says
she has a lot on her plate, she really
means it. In addition to her current

"I have teen pageants that I'm start-

Raye Foundation, which is a non-

body of the Radiant Jewels Teen
Pageant that I am starting in March
in North Carolina. This pageant is
to elevate young ladies in talent.
And I just broke ground on a movie
theater in the Turks and Caicos. A
month ago, they didn't have a the-
ater there. I thought it was perfect
for their First Lady, who happens to
be an actress, to build a cinema
there. It's called the L Raye Theater
and it opens in about a month."
In dabbling in fashion, the non-
profit arena, pageantry, and theater
ownership, LisaRaye is still work-
ing in Hollywood on the sitcom that
she says keeps her grounded.
"The show keeps me seeing the
lighter side of life and keeps me
sane,"she said. "I'm doing some-
thing that I've always wanted to do
and I'm getting paid for it. I'm
allowing myself to be LisaRaye the
actress, and then I fly across the
country and I'm the First Lady of
Turks and Ciacos. That's a wonder-
ful life. That's a fairy tale."

Boxing icon Muhammad Ali is
lending his name to a line of chil-
dren's books designed to help inoti-.
vate and empower young students,
particularly boys, to become more
actively involved in learning to
Scholastic Corp.'s "Muhammad
Ali Presents Go the Distance" fea-
tures books that reflect Ali's
philosophies and are targeted
toward socially disadvantaged stu-

dents in grades 3-8 who
believe neither reading nor
education is relevant to their
lives, says Lonnie Ali, the box-
ing legend's wife.
"The foundation of all edu-
cation is reading," she says,
according to the Associated
Press. "Books can take a child
outside of his immediate vicin-
ity, his immediate environ-

ment, to someplace else. It
makes them learn about other
communities outside of their
immediate neighborhoods.
That's one of the things this
particular library has been
designed to d to take children on

The collection, AP reports, fea-
tures a wide range of multicultural
fiction and nonfiction books that
generally reflect the interests of
young boys in underserved class-
rooms because, on average, they
read far less than their female coun-
terparts. Some of the titles include:
"Stealing Home: The Story of

Jackie Robinson," "Hunterman and
the Crocodile," a folk tale from
west Africa; "White Star: A Dog on
the Titanic," about a young boy and
a dog who bond while aboard the
doomed ocean liner; and "Touching
Spirit Bear," a story of a young
boy's journey from self-destructive
anger to forgiveness. Of course, the
Scholastic collection also includes
"The Champ: The Story of
Muhammad Ali."
"A lot of it has to do with subject
material getting the interest of
the child, to make them read," Ali
says. "The more you make a child
read, the more they are motivated.
The more motivation they have, the
more the\ seek out books to read
and the more they become empow-
ered by what they read and empow-
ered with what they can do."

organization has rescued more
than 1,500 animals.

cost spay/neuter services and
vaccinations. For families on
public assistance, the society
offers spay/neuter services for
free (if funds are available).
The organization is in need of
volunteers, who will work for at
least 10 hours a month. Help is
needed for animal care, both

cats and dogs, a handy person
for repairs, people who are will-
ing to do home checks and pick
up animals for spay/neuter from
families who cannot drive.
Volunteers are also needed at
the Howard Flea Market booth,
where adoptable pets are shown
to the public. Volunteers can
help with bookkeeping, creat-
ing a database on,a computer,
making telephone calls and
other duties. The group needs
vet techs and help at the spay
mobile, as well as for the shot
clinic. ":-'
