Civil Rights Group Suing KY KKK
Louisville, KY A civil rights group is suing the second-largest Ku
Klux Klan group in the United States, alleging some of its members beat
a 16-year-old boy at a county fair southwest of Louisville.
The Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Ala., said five
members of the Kentucky-based Imperial Klans of America attacked the
boy at the Meade County Fairgrounds in Brandenburg, Ky., in July 2006.
The attack left the teen with two cracked ribs, a broken left forearm, cuts
and bruises. The center sued the Klan in Meade County Circuit Court on
Wednesday and is seeking unspecified damages.
The center contends in the lawsuit that the Klan was recruiting at the
Meade County fair by passing out cards and flyers advertising a "white
only" function. Two Klan members saw the teen, Jordan Gruver, and
began shouting racial epithets. The two men threw whiskey in Gruver's
face, knocked him down, kicked him with steel-toed boots and beat him.
Along with the physical injuries, the attack left Gruver with extreme
emotional distress.
The Southern Poverty Law Center has taken Klan and white suprema-
cist groups to court before. The center won a $6.3 million verdict from
Aryan Nations in 2000. That judgment forced the group to sell its Idaho
compound. It also won a $7 million verdict from United Klans in 1987
for the lynching of Michael Donald in Mobile, Alabama.

Court Sides with Jefferson on FBI Raid
--'-WASHINGTON- FBI agents violated
the rights of a Democratic congressman
when they confiscated files from his
Capitol Hill office while investigating
allegations he solicited bribes, including
$90,000 found in his freezer, a federal
appeals court ruled.
The unanimous three-judge panel
ordered the FBI to give Louisiana Rep.
William Jefferson back all privileged leg-
islative files, including copies, taken from
his office during the unprecedented raid
on May 20-21 of last year.
It was the first time law enforcement
agents had raided or searched the office of a member of Congress.
The court found that FBI agents violated the U.S. Constitution's man-
date that Congress operate as a co-equal branch of government without
being intimidated by the law enforcement powers of the executive
branch.
The court barred the agents who conducted the search from disclosing
contents of any privileged or politically sensitive information from the
files. It also limited their further involvement in the case.
Jefferson, 63, a member of the U.S. Congress since 1991 whose district
includes New Orleans, faces a maximum of 235 years in prison if con-
victed. He has pleaded not guilty and has vowed to fight the charges..

Harlem to Get First Luxury Hotel
Luxury lodging is coming to Harlem.
Reisman Properties will be breaking ground in August on a hotel on
125th Street.
"The hotel will run along Fifth Avenue from 125th to 126th Street," Mr.
Reisman said.
Although a flag has yet to be picked for the property, Mr. Reisman said
that a number of very high-end chains are in the running. "Right now,
who we go with is an open question," he said. "But we are narrowing it
down."
The property will be designed by Handel Architects, an architecture
firm whose clients include 40 Bond Street, the Trump Soho Hotel and the
Ritz-Carlton, Downtown. Once completed, the hotel will be 19 stories
tall and cover over 130,000 square-feet.
"There will be somewhere between 240 and 260 rooms in the hotel, and
it will have 25,000 square feet of banquet and meeting space," Mr.
Reisman said.
He would not disclose the total cost for the development, but did say
that it would "be north of $80 million."

Iraq War Causing Major Drop in
African American Military Service
Long considered a way for those to get through school and get a home,
the military is dcreasing less and less as an option for Black Americans.
Figures releases by the nation's military services and data compiled by
the Associated Press point to a dramatic drop in the number of African
Americans enlisting in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines.
The principal reason appears to be Black opposition to the Bush admin-
istration's war in Iraq.
Even in 2003, when there was overwhelming support for the war among
the rest of the nation, African American support never rose above 44 per-
cent in any major poll. Now, according to a Pew survey released in June,
Black support has fallen to just 15 percent. That opposition is reflected in
the dwindling number of Blacks enlisting for military service.
In the Army, the branch of the military traditionally favored by Blacks,
the percentage of Black enlistees has dropped from 23 percent before the
war to just 12.4 percent today. The Pentagon last week announced
$20,000 bonuses in a bid to lure more youth into the military.
Maya Rockeymoore, the former vice president for research for the
Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, was quoted last week as say-
ing, "Blacks have always been suspicious of the motives and justification
for the war."

New Sources of Diversity Critical to Our Future


Access to equal opportunity
separate and divides the United
States. The country has aggressive-
ly pursued this ideal over the past
50 years with federal policies and
court decisions that opened colleges


and universities to ethnic and racial
populations that had historically
been vastly underrepresented.
Affirmative action, the federal pro-
gram that was most influential in
helping build diverse campuses, has


been slowly but demonstrably erod-
ed over the past 10 years through a
combination of statewide referenda
and now the latest Supreme Court
decision limiting the use of race in
school choice.


The demis of these programs have
occurred despite the conviction of a
vast array of business leaders, gov-
ernment officials, and university
administrators that for the past 35 -

A quiet movement was ignited
across the country this week
designed to energize and inform the
country to take notice on a grass-
roots level. Dubbed a national "Day
of Outrage", 20 cities across the
nation joined in simultaneously at
12 noon in the protest organized by
Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action


Network. He subject of their angst
is the continuous use in the music
recording industry of the words
"nigga," "bitch" and "ho." The
Nationwide call galvanized con-
cerned citizens in front of radio sta-
tions, music stores and other ven-
ues. Locally, the Gateway Mall was
the backdrop for Jacksonville to


take notice to the music and lyrics
listened to and purchased by con-
sumers.
They marked it as "A Woman's
National Day of Outrage" and the
hip hop community is being called
upon to clean up its music and its
message. In Jacksonville, the
music of an urban Generation X is


played on 92.7 the Beat. Generation
X is listening. The station is number
one among Black listeners 18 to 39,
advertising's cash cow.
"We are tired of listening to music
that degrades our sisters," said Rev.
Rudolph McKissick, Jr. who lead
the protest in Jacksonville.

True State of Crisis of Black Marriages Revealed


Black marriage in the U.S. is in
the sum of word in crisis.
During the last several decades the
rates of marriage in the Black com-
munity have declined while the
rates of divorce, separation, cohabi-
tation, out-of-wedlock births, and
children residing in female-headed
households have increased.
Between 1950 and 1996, the per-
centage of Black families headed
by married couples declined from
78 to 34 percent. Between 1940 and
1990, the percentage of Black chil-
dren living with both parents
dropped from 75.8 to 33.2%, large-
ly because of increases in never-
married Black mothers. Sadly
enough, during this period African
American couples reported more
spousal abuse and singles and cou-
ples reported less connection to rel-
atives. Most striking, Blacks who
do marry (and stay married) are
increasingly indicating less marital
satisfaction, but researchers do not
know why.
Even though increasing numbers
of African Americans have not mar-
ried or been unable to achieve
healthy and lasting marriages, most
African Americans still value and
desire marriage. In fact, one survey
reports 77% of Black adults ages
19-35 said they wished to get mar-
ried. In a 2006 Gallup Poll, Blacks
were more likely than Whites to say
that marriage is very important; yet,


anecdotal evidence suggests that
young Blacks may be losing hope
that a good marriage is attainable.
Marriage itself-and particularly
healthy marriage-is associated with
a wide range of economic, psycho-
logical, and social benefits. Married
African Americans earn more, have


higher levels of occupational pres-
tige, and are more likely to own
their own homes compared to their
unmarried peers. Married Black
adults report more happiness, satis-
faction, and fewer emotional prob-
lems than unmarried Blacks.
Compared to Blacks who are


unmarried, married Black men and
women report that they are more
likely to reject illegal and unethical
behavior, and married Black men
are less likely to be involved in
criminal activity hence the other of
our ills, the crisis of the Black male.

Mothers Teach Daughters Respect Begins Inside


Dressed in white formal dresses and poised to the T., fourteen young ladies with ages ranging from 3 10
were honored by their loved ones stressing to them at a very early age, that they are "precious jewels". With
all of the negative imagery surrounding today's young Black women, mothers Juanita Simmons and
Antoinette Jones felt compelled to honor their daughters. In what began as a small tea party, soon emerged
as a full fledged program that gave their youngsters an early appreciation for the social graces and them-
selves as the idea grew. For more, see page 3.

A Very Special Tea Party Teaches Daughters


Their Value that and Esteem Begins at Home


Follows picture from front
"It all started as a Tea Party." With
the negative image that's happening
in the world today and the need to
provide inspiration to young girls at
an early age, an idea was born to
honor daughters in a special way.
With that in mind, a recent warm
Sunday afternoon was the perfect
backdrop for Juanita Simmons and
Anntoinette Jones to present
"Honoring Our Daughters" at the
Wiley Center. The memorable
event honored fourteen girls rang-
ing in ages 3 to 10.
Simmons said this event began as
a tea party for six of her nieces.
However, she was lead to celebrate
the love and joy of daughters
instead of the traditional tea party.
As the word spread, other family
members and friends were invited
to participate. However, says Jones
"we didn't want to do it, but the
number of girls was increasing so


Mothers hosting the tea party
showed their young daughters
love begins at home.
fast we had to say no to other moth-
ers who wanted to include their
daughters."
At the event, each mother wrote a
poem expressing the love and joy
her daughter brings to the family.
The mother also used the Bible to
provide her with a scripture for her
spiritual growth and development.
The girls, dressed in formal white
or pastel colored dresses, each
entered the elaborately decorated


room on a red-carpeted walkway,
lined with pink rose petals as the
song "You are so beautiful" played
as background music. Each girl
introduced herself, reciting a state-
ment specifically written for her,
with the phrase "I am a precious
jewel" included.
Vonda Jordan and her daughter
Margaret Ja'Nice presided over the
program. William Lavant III, sang a
"Song of Dedication" and a "Dance
of Love" was performed by mother
and daughter; Ruth Taylor and
Roshonda Cooper. Each mother
escorted her daughter to the center
of the room as Rosalind Lavant and
Anita Buie-Walton narrated the
scripture and special poem.
The program also included "A
Prayer for My Mommy", narrated
by Tavia Simmons who traveled
from Atlanta, Georgia to be with
Simmons, who is her mother.
Simmons closed the program with


New Sources of Diversity Must be Found


Continued from front
years, affirmative action has been
a remarkably successful tool in the
quest for equity in access to higher
education.
Five key states collectively
enrolling over half a million stu-
dents each year currently are
operating under severe constraints
regarding the use of race as a factor
in admissions decisions. The elec-
torate in three states California,
Washington, and Michigan has
emphatically voted to abolish the
use of affirmative action in public
university admissions. Two other
populous states Texas and Florida
have implemented admissions
processes that have limited or elim-
inated the use of affirmative action.
On the horizon, efforts can be fore-
seen to eradicate affirmative action
being mounted in additional states
for the 2008 election cycle.
What had been a national policy is
being dismantled, state by state.
Each state that has abandoned affir-
mative action has had to ascertain
separately its legal ability and the
boundaries that would allow it to
foster diversity. Because each
state's context differs, America is
developing fragmented solutions to
the challenge of maintaining a
diverse student body, a challenge
that many courts continue to see as
a "compelling interest" for the
nation.
And because the US has gone
from a national policy to a set of
disparate solutions, it faces a
conundrum: Even as university
leaders in post-affirmative-action
states support the goals of a highly
diversified student body, they must
show that without the tool of affir-


Marriages

Continued from front
While at times the picture seems
bleak, there are many reasons for
hope. One reason is the way in
which Black cultural values can be
uniquely supportive of families.
Although more research is needed,
scholars have identified five major
cultural strengths or core values of
African American marriages and
families. An intentional embrace of
these five strengths would be
essential to marriage promotion
programs in African American
communities: 1)collectivism, which
is the primary concern for survival
of the group and the valuing of
group identity and belonging above
individualism; 2) spiritualism, or
the valuing of a supreme being and
recognizing the role of that being in
one's own life; 3) role flexibility,
which is the sharing and changing
of family roles as needed; 4) "diu-
nital" views of the world, or inte-
grating all elements in life and
striving for balance; and 5) kin-
ship-like bonds, which means
developing family-like relation-
ships with people outside of the
biological family.
The more Blacks identify with
and live by constructive cultural
values and strengths, the better pre-
pared they will be to support
healthy marriages. One way to
begin this work is to articulate a
shared, marriage-inclusive vision
for what Rev. Dr. Martin Luther
King called the "beloved commu-
nity."


mative action, they can still build a
diverse, talented, highly competi-
tive student population.
All of us whether or not we still
can use affirmative action need to
pool our collective experience and
data to establish the best ways of
being accessible to applicants from
all strata of our society. We know
that critical elements include
increased outreach, improvements
to financial aid, and holistic admis-
sion models. We have been told by


corporate leaders, by elected offi-
cials, and by the armed forces, that
more diverse organizations are bet-
ter organizations. Entry to our uni-
versities and colleges provides the
opportunity for many to rise eco-
nomically and improve their lives
and add to the vigor of our nation. It
is a key to our future success and
should be accessible to all.
Otherwise we just may find our-
selves counting backwards along
with our gains.


"A Prayer for My Daughter" and the
audience sang, "There's a Sweet,
Sweet Spirit in This Place". Each
Mother and daughter received a
framed copy of both prayers and
each daughter presented a long
stem red rose to her mother. The
girls received a gift basket and a
memorable program book.
Following the program, the girls
were honored with a dinner espe-
cially prepared for them. They were
seated at reserved tables decorated
with white linen, candles, roses and
formal place settings. All enjoyed a
colorful cake designed in the form
of a teapot. As the youngsters grow
older, the Sunday in July will
remain a special day in their hearts.
Best of all when it comes to love,
each will know they need to look no
further than in their mother's eyes.
Participating daughters and their
parents included: Neveieh Danielle
Brookins (Lorne and Shevonne
Brookins), Nadia Romaniece
Brown (Erik and Curtina Brown),
Taniya Camille Foston (Tiffani
Foston), Keonna Janae Wright
(Gwendolyn and Keith Wright),
Alexandria Jordan Williams (Sonya
Smith and Alvin Williams), Ayriel
and Alexia Kelly (Alexie and
Tongela Kelly), Treasure Toi Jones
(Carlton and Karen Jones), QiaNate
Alese Jackson (Angela Buie and Sy
Jackson), Imani Elizabeth Hudson
(Kenneth and Angela Hudson) and
Armani Jewell Gallon (Keith
Gallon, James and Brandisha
Gallon).


Shown above is Matt Romney addressing questions at the roundtable.

Candidates Woo Black Republicans


Republican presidential hopeful
Mitt Romney brought his campaign
to Central Florida on July 28 and
was received warmly by the leader-
ship of the Florida Federation of
Black Republicans (FFBR).
Romney talked about how he
championed legislation dealing
with health care and education,
which reached down to improve the
lives of the working poor while he
was governor of Massachusetts.
"Mitt Romney brings a
more inclusive attitude as it relates
to African Americans," said
Ometrias Deon Long, chairman of
the FFBR, which is sanctioned by
the Republican Party of Florida.
"We invited Republicans of all
stripes to hear Mr. Romney speak
about the direction in which he
wants to take the country. A num-
ber of our members are looking for-
ward to working on the grassroots
level to help Romney get elected,"
Long said.


Romney pledged to appoint
African Americans to visible posi-
tions on his campaign team and
said he wants the Republican Party
to do a better job of promoting
African American candidates for
political office. Romney spoke of
his market-based solution to pro-
vide a universal health care pro-
gram that was largely subsidized by
the insurance industry and cost-
effective for the government. He
also spoke of his alliance with the
Massachusetts Black Caucus of
State Elected Officials .
"Our group was pleased that Mr.
Romney was the first Republican
presidential candidate to meet with
us. That gesture alone indicates to
us that Romney plans to broaden
the look and scope of this adminis-
tration, if he is elected president,"
said Long. "We feel confident that
support from the FFBR could help
him win the Republican primary in

School Board Takes NIMBI Approach to Judging


Superintendents Progress of Area Schools


NIMBI that old familiar
acronym for "not in my back yard",
must have been in the back of
School Board members minds
when recently grading the School
Superitendent's job performance.
Members with successful schools
gave him excellent scores while
those with failing scores literally
failed him.
Is it just me or did we just have
more falling schools than ever
before? Didn't reading and math
scores drop countywide? Wait a
minute hasn't the achievement gap
in the county widened?
Is it just me or did the
Superintendent only meet three of
the nine goals he established for
himself?
That equates to about 33 percent
right? Well, where I was educated
(Duval County Public School
System) that's a failing grade all
day and night. Interesting enough,
the two representatives who repre-
sent the areas of the community


with the most needs and where the
bulk of the "F" school are gave
Wise low marks.
I guess other School Board
members don't care about the entire
system as long as the schools in
their districts are doing OK. And I
certainly said OK, because few of
our schools are actually doing well.
I actually disagree with those
who think the Superintendent
should be fired immediately. After
all, it was an inherited issue. The
students didn't change overnight,
how can we expect the schools too.
I am extremely disappointed in the
grades at our schools, but I realize
that the onus doesn't solely rest on
Wise's shoulders, but he has to do a
better job of creating a game plan
that will fix our schools.
Parents and students shouldn't be
ignored for the role and responsibil-
ity, but the buck stops with Wise.
There is no reason that the
achievement gap between blacks
and other racial groups should have


widened. And it wasn't just racial -
the achievement gap between stu-
dents of low socio-economic status
and all others in reading widened as
well.
Some familiar names were on
the list of schools that received F
grades; Raines and Ribault lead the
list. Other schools include Andrew
Jackson High, Forrest High, SOS
Academy Middle, and
Northwestern Middle. Elementary
schools include North Shore,
Pindedale, Rutledge H. Pearson,
Carter G. Woodson and Wayman
Academy of the Arts.
What do these schools have in
common?
The obvious is that they just so
happen to be schools with a major-
ity of African American students.
Most of the schools are on the
Northside and most are not new to
receiving F grades.
What's also interesting is that
Forest High School received its
first F grade ever.


Aaron Should Be the First to Congratulate Bonds


by E.O. Hutchinson
Hammerin' Henry Aaron should be
the first to congratulate San
Francisco Giants slugger Barry
Bonds when he breaks his home run
record. Instead Hank's line has
been: I have nothing to say about
Bonds, I don't give a second's
thought to whether he breaks my
home run record or not, and I sure
as heck won't congratulate him
when he breaks it. Hank has been
saying that since it became obvious
a year ago that Bonds would even-
tually break his record.
There are two things strange about
Aaron's dogged insistence that he
won't have anything to do with
Bonds. One is that he takes that atti-
tude at all. Bonds hasn't been con-
victed of any crime. He's passed
every drug test that he's taken. Yes,
the knock is that the tests were
superficial and could easily be beat-
en. But they were the tests of record
at the time and he passed them.
Even the most passionate Bonds
haters don't dispute that his on field
accomplishments are prodigious,
home runs or not. Aaron in a more
charitable moment a year ago said
that drugs won't help anyone hit a
ball.
Aaron has long been noted as
being his own man when it comes


by Les Payne
Will Tiger Woods get reparations for slav-
ery? What about Justice Clarence Thomas?
Mariah Carey? Chuck D? Will the children
of Abner Louima or Amadou Diallo get
shares?
No, you've not missed the memo on U.S.
reparations.
A blizzard of e-mail responses to last
week's column has enlivened the debate
over my view that slavery was a crime
against humanity for which America must
account and be assessed damages. Mixed-
race Tiger Woods gets hauled onto the fair-
way because inquiring readers want to
know who exactly would be eligible for
reparations. This puts the cart before the
horse, as farmers say, but I yield to ques-
tions from the floor.
A mixed-race reader from San Francisco,
with half of her family white, questions
using "one drop of [black] blood" as a crite-
rion for determining eligibility. This stan-


to speaking out on past injustices,
especially the lack of black coaches
and managers in baseball. In the
decades since his retirement, Aaron
still on occasion publicly lashes out
at the lingering racial biases of
some owners and front office man-
agers. But Aaron obviously has
been swayed by the Bash Bonds
crowd. It's a formidable line-up. It
includes top sportswriters, legions
of fans, and advertisers (Bonds has-
n't gotten a paid corporate endorse-
ment deal in ages). Then there's the
man at the top in MLB, Bud Selig
whose duck and dodge of Bonds
has sent the powerful signal that
Bonds isn't worthy of wearing the
tag, King of Swat. At least that is
without an asterisk in front of the
tag.
Now what's even stranger about
Aaron's Bonds snub is that thirty-
four years ago packs of fans, sports-
writers, and some players ham-
mered Hammerin' Henry. They
choked at the thought that a black
man could break the hallowed
record of baseball's greatest white
icon, Babe Ruth. Aaron received
mountains of hate mail, vicious
taunts, and threats to his family. He
was surrounded by a squad of secu-
rity guards at ballparks and armed
guards off the field. Aaron was gra-


cious and dignified during the
ordeal. He repeatedly praised Ruth's
accomplishments.
Bonds hasn't faced the blatant
racial hatemongering that Aaron
did. But race still lurks beneath the
surface in the trash Bonds rage.
Start with the polls. Pollsters have
gleefully sniffed out the racial
divide in the Bond saga. The over-
whelming majority of blacks cheer
for Bonds to break Aaron's record
and a majority of whites don't. A
significant number of blacks say
that they think Bonds is getting
plastered by the press and the fans
because he is black. Whites say
that's nonsense. It's because he's a
cheater and a louse.
Bonds didn't help matters with an
ill-timed and ill-advised boast last
year that he'd take great relish in
passing Ruth on the all-time home
run list, but had qualms about sup-
planting Aaron as the all-time home
run king. Bonds was roundly
denounced for playing the race card
since Ruth is white and Aaron is
black. Bonds hasn't shirked from
saying that racism is behind much
of the taunting by fans. He is partly
right. There are a slew of fans and
sportswriters who hate the idea of a

These school grades are based
on students' performance on the
FCAT schools are assessed grades
from A to F.
In May when school grades
were announced Wise asked all 79
elementary school principles to
write memos explaining their
grades. He instructed principals' not
to blame students or the lack of
funding.
Interesting to me because Wise
says that the root of the problem is
in the classroom. The onus is on
teachers he said. Maybe so, but as
the leader and CEO of the school
system shouldn't some of the blame
rest on his shoulders?
Here's how crazy the scoring gap
is between the two School Board
members that represent the
Northwest side and those represent-
ing other parts of the city.
Board members Priestly-
Jackson and Burney gave Wise an
overall average score of 1 out of 5.
Hazouri had the next lowest score
at 3 with Bronner and Barrett giv-
ing Wise 4.5s. Barners and Drake
averaged out with scores totaling 5.
There is an old Native American
proverb that says, "The rain falls on
the just and the unjust." So although
the schools in certain parts of town
maybe doing pretty good and you
may have a great relationship with
the superintendent and his staff -
failing schools are a reflection on
the entire system.
Sure I am willing to give Wise
more time to prove himself, but I
can't agree with giving him excep-
tional grades when schools are
doing even worse than they were
doing prior to him getting here.
A key component of leadership
is actually taking responsibility for
actions of your organization mad
that is what this community needs.
We desperately need someone to
say hey we have problems, but I am
committed to fixing those problems
and here is my plan to get us there.
Someone once said, "A real
leader faces the music, even when
he doesn't like the tune." And the
tune being played right now is loud
and offbeat, but it can be fixed.
The question now becomes do
we have the right mechanic to do
the repair work?

Board meeting,

BLACK FLIGHT


'' l Has Our Middle


Class Left Us?

by William Reed
The contrast in the tales in Black Society couldn't be more glaring. More
than 15 percent of black households earn more than $50,000 annually. Yet,
nearly a million of their black brothers, cousins, etc. are behind bars. We
account for 60 percent of the nation's poor, and homelessness, raging drug
and gang violence plague most black communities.
Bet'reen 1975 and 1995, a substantive Black Middle Class evolved. The
number of black professionals, technicians, administrators and managers
nearly tripled, and the number of black college graduates doubled. As the
black middle class has grown, so have the black poor. African American
wealth is concentrated among a few successful blacks who took their
money to "Whiteland". One-fifth of black families earn half of all black
income.
In the 1950s, sociologist E. Franklin Frazier warned that many blacks
w ere becoming a "bourgeoisie" that turns its back on its own people.
Members of Frazier's black bourgeoisie had begun adaptation of white
middle class ideals, values and standards, distancing themselves from the
black poor. The process continued into the late 1980s, as one in 10 blacks
was moving to the suburbs. In the decade since the 1992 Rodney King
riots, the stampede of black business and professionals from the inner cities
accelerated.
As political correctness evolves in the 21st Century based on "color-
blindness." the black bourgeoisie is more "integrationist" than "separatist".
As their morph into the existing white structure, it is not in the nature of
integrationist-orienied blacks to participate in the design or development of
"black capitalism" processes to build race-based wealth through ownership
and development of businesses. The difference between "color conscious"
and "integrationist" blacks can best be illustrated by comparing Secretary
of State Condoleezza Rice and entrepreneur Robert Johnson: she is
acclaimed for being a black in her job, he for the jobs he's made for blacks.
By nature of their "jobs", Time-Warner President Richard Parsons.
Merrill-Lynch CEO E. Stanley O'Neal and Rice toe the colorblindness line.
The contrasting view is depicted in an interview America's onl) black bil-
lionaire Robert L. Johnson held with the Washington Informer New\spaper.
He distinguished himself as an entrepreneur conscious of color: "The rea-
son to do \ hat ou do is the results from having doing it. What I find the
most exciting is simultaneously creating an opportunity for lots of people
to get jobs and positions that they wouldn't have gotten other ise. The
way I look at it. it's an opportunity, an opportunity to do things with peo-
ple and hopefully have a positive impact. So, to me, it's really a jo) to do
things that I like to do with my people".
Instead of joining other well-to-do black in suburbia, Bob Johnson illus-
trates a personal strain of "Black Power" and an ethnic of building wealth
together. In his latest venture, the founder of Black Entertainment
Tele% vision (BET) has gone back to the basics. Instead of moving away
from African American enclaves, Johnson acquired a Florida savings and
loan and moved it to Washington, DC to be a consumer financial services
company aimed at black customers.
The Urban Trust bank is Johnson's effort to build the country's largest
minority-owned financial services company and position it to attract major
Wall Street investors as it fosters black wealth. Urban Trust will ... bring
more access to capital to individuals and families who need it, especially
those that need help managing their assets and their wealth." Johnson said.
"There's no doubt in my mind that a well-capitalized, N ell-managed black-
owned financial institution will be welcomed."
Across all classes, blacks need access to money. Urban Trust officials say
their goal is to be the preeminent provider of financial serve ices to di% erse
and underserved urban communities. "Our mission is to strengthen our
community be significantly expanding access to capital for families, entrc-
preneurs, foundations and individual consumers". Those interested in
banking black should contact Urban Trust at 1350 I Street, Washington.

A car sign not only kept out the 100 degree heat, but also sends a serious message. R. Silver photo


said that the derogatory lyrics caus-
es students and others to look at
Black females differently.
17 year old Lisa Foster agrees.
"You could see it in their eyes that
they want to repeat what they hear
on the CDs. The bad thing is that
the white students are afraid to say
it, while some young Black men go
ahead and call the names they hear.
They don't care if they know you or
not.
Reverend Sharpton, who has per-
sistently challenged the entertain-
ment industry on denigrating lyrics,
will use August 7th as a catalyst to
call for the withdrawal of public
investments from companies that
won't clean up their act. In New
York, one of the states where the
event took place, roughly $3 billion
from the state pension fund is
invested in the entertainment indus-
try. According to Reverend


Sharpton, "The idea of divesting
State taxpayers' money from record
companies that have a double stan-
dard when it comes to language is
something that will be a priority."
He ed the demonstration at the
Motown Museum in Detroit, said,
"I'm here in Motown in Detroit as a
symbol of when music was not den-
igrating and was entertaining."
Sharpton's crusade against deroga-
tory lyrics in the music industry
was ignited months ago after shock
jock Don Imus used the term
"nappy headed hos" to describe col-
legiate members of a basketball
team. The ensuing protests eventu-
ally caused the satellite host to lose
his multi-million dollar contract
and job.
Some people in the music indus-
try have defended rappers' free-
speech rights but say the degrading
words at the center of the debate


should be treated the same as
extreme profanities and consistent-
ly blanked out of clean and radio
versions of songs.
"If you can make the message clear
in the clean version, your message
is no deeper in the explicit version,"
said organizer Pastor Rudolph
McKissick Jr.

Take it from me. You can prevent colon cancer by getting
tested. They check your colon, and if they find a p,lyp,
they remove it before it becomes cancer.


If you're 50 or older, talk to your doctor about getting tested for colon cancer.

Superintendent of Esprit de Corps
Center For Learning (EDC), invites
the public to attend the dedication
ceremony and take a tour of its
newly erected Multi-purpose
Complex. Two dates are available

Indianapolis Colts head coach
Tony Dungy is the first African-
American coach to ever lead his
team to a Super Bowl title. The 51-
year-old Dungy is now the author
of a New York Times' No. 1 best-
seller, Quiet Strength.
Written with Nathan Whitaker,
Dungy's memoir will head the
Times' hardcover, nonfiction list on
Sunday, August 5, and is the first
NFL-related title in history to claim
the top spot on this list.

We are pressed on every side by
troubles, but we are not crushed.
We are perplexed, but not driven to
despair We are hunted down, but
never abandoned by God. We get
knocked down, but we are not
destroyed. 2 Corinthians 4:8-9
IT WAS TIME. I figured I had
waited long enough. Darkness had
fallen on that winter evening, two
days after our team's business had
concluded for the season. The
building was otherwise deserted as
I pulled up and parked at the small
wooden shack guarding the
entrance to One Buccaneer Place.
One Buc, as we all called it, stood
quiet. The one-story, stucco and
concrete block building was locat-
ed on the edge of the Tampa
International Airport.
Excerpt

Released July 10, Quiet Strength
debuted on the list at No. 2 on the
July 29 hardcover, nonfiction list.
The 20th sports-related book to
ever reach No. 1 on the Times'
hardcover, nonfiction list, it is also
only the eighth sports-related title
to reach the No. 1 spot this decade.
Quiet Strength was propelled to
the top of the Times' hardcover,
nonfiction list by a 10-day book
tour that featured stops in seven
cities, including Atlanta, Los
Angeles, New York, Dallas, Fort
Wayne, Indianapolis, and Tampa.
After more than 2,000 people


turned out at the Anchor Room
signing in Fort Wayne on Sunday,
July 15, Tyndale House arranged
for a truck of books to be driven
from Chicago to Indianapolis that
night to accommodate the
Indianapolis store locations for
their signing the next day, with a
realized concern that the stores may
have sold out. The book also sold
out at the three Tampa area loca-
tions on July 17. While Dungy was
not able to sign copies for the entire
line at any of the signing in
Indiana or Florida, he did "walk the
line" to meet and greet every person
who did not make it to the front of
the line to have his or her book
signed. Tyndale and newspaper
accounts approximate total atten-
dance at the eight book signing to


be between 8,000-10,000 fans. In
all, Dungy signed approximately
7,500 books for 4,500 individuals.
In its' fifth printing, Quiet
Strength, will have more than
315,000 copies of the book in print.

The Rewards and Demands of Caring for an Aging Parent


Beth Witrogen McLeod had
never even heard the term "caregiv-
er" until six months after her par-
ents died. But during the roughly
two years that she served as their
primary caregiver -- from 1991 to
1993 -- she amassed a wealth of
knowledge on the topic.
Her caregiving journey
inspired her to write a 1995
series for the San Francisco
Examiner, The Caregivers, in
which she explored the bur-
geoning trend of adults car-
ing for aging parents In
1997, she left to write a
book, Caregiving: The h
Spiritual Journey of L\e. .
Loss, and Renewal. Each_
received a Pulitzer Prize
nomination.
Witrogen's immersion into the
unfamiliar world of family care-
giving began when her 69-year-old
father, who had a recurring type of
cancer, failed to improve with sur-
gery, and her 70-year-old mother
was diagnosed with amyotrophic
lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's dis-
ease) with dementia. Suddenly, she
was flying back to Wichita, Kan.,
every six to eight weeks on unpaid
leave from her newspaper job to
assist her terminally ill parents.
"I was just stunned by what their
needs were all the time, I didn't
really have much family that could
help, and I didn't know about the


network of aging services," she disabled or aged family members or
said. "So, things sort of got friends in any given year. Most

begins showing signs of dementia,
or when people begin to worry
about Dad living alone in a big
house with lots of stairs, explained
Suzanne Mintz, president and co-
founder of the National Family
Caregivers Association (NFCA).
But care-giving experts say it is a
role that is becoming more visible
as the nation's baby boomers strug-
gle to secure the resources they
need to help their ill and elderly
parents, often while balancing the
demands of their own career and
family.
Nationally, more than 50 million
Americans care for chronically ill,


I know I'm controlling my diabetes because I keep track
of my blood sugar numbers. I manage my diabetes by
watching what I eat, making the time for regular physical
activity and taking my medicine as prescribed.

have more energy. Best of all, I'm going to be around for
my family... for my friends.., for life.

suggested. "What if Mom has a
stroke or heart attack or falls and
breaks her hip or we think her safe-
ty's at risk? What are we going to
do? Assuming Mom doesn't live
anywhere near the kids, who could
be the first responder? Does Mom
have all her paperwork in order?"
Mintz had that conversation with
her own brother, after her 89-year-


old mother, who lives in Florida,
had a bad concussion, prompting
terrible headaches and a problem
with her eyes. "And so, I called him
up and said, 'Who knows what's
going to happen here, but if some-
body has to go down immediately,
you're more flexible than I am
because I can't leave my husband
by himself,' she said. Mintz is a
family caregiver for her husband,
Steven, who has multiple sclerosis.
Preparation is critical because the
toll that care-giving can exact is
immense. Witrogen now teaches an
online course through Barnes &
Noble University called "Taking
care of Your Aging Parents." In it,
she covers issues that caregivers are
likely to confront along their jour-
ney, from legal and financial mat-
ters to emotional and self-care con-
cerns.
"I did not eat well, I did not
hydrate well, I did not rest,"
Witrogen recognized after the fact.
She also suffered severe depression
during her mother's ordeal.
Care-giving's toll, of course, varies
depending on circumstances.
"If you're helping Mom with the


groceries every week and her
finances once a month and she's
still living on her own, that's very
different than 24/7 care-giving and
Mom's living with you," Mintz
observed. Plus, if your parents have
money to buy services, say hiring a
home health aide, that makes things
a lot easier, she said. "But for many
people, the money isn't there."
Witrogen suspects that she and her
husband, who died last year, spent
$20,000 in the one month that her
parents died, considering the cost of
plane trips, rental cars, funerals and

We drink coffee, guzzle down

other bills that had to be paid.
Yet, despite the stress and strain of
care-giving, her experience also
proved to be life-changing in pro-
foundly positive ways.
"You learn to live day-to-day, you
learn to live more in the moment,"
Witrogen said. Most of all, she said,
you learn how to give and how to
receive love. "We create a more
loving world by doing this, by
being caregivers," she insisted. "It's
a higher calling. I'm convinced of
it."


Eating
source. But your body can only
process and store so many carbs.
Too few and you're not getting
enough energy. Too many and the
extra is turned into fat. Big meals
and lots of caffeine throw your
body into a glucose roller coaster,
where dizzying heights are fol-
lowed quickly by energy levels
crashing back down to earth (along
with drooping eyelids and yawns).
What's the solution? Keep your
carb levels on an even keel, which
means avoiding those sugary
spikes. Since your blood sugar
drops four hours after eating, it
means eating more frequent, small-
er meals. It means concentrating on
low-fat, high-fiber foods and com-
plex carbs these are broken down
slowly and steadily, giving you reg-
ular energy throughout the day.
This combo will boost your physi-
cal and mental energy as high as
possible, without sending extra
sugary carbs through the fat-mak-
ing factory.

Also:
Eat breakfast! This is absolutely
the #1 "eating for energy" strategy.
It gets your metabolism off to a
strong start and makes nighttime
snacking a thing of the past.
(Coffee is not breakfast.)
Avoid grease and dairy (pizza,
burgers, ice cream, cheese) and
their simple and sugary carbs that
can throw blood sugar levels out of
whack.
* Focus on whole grains, which are
good sources of vitamin B, aiding
the metabolic production of energy.

Historical Remains of America's Most Successful



Black Boarding School Worth the Road Trip


The Palmer
A must see on any family road
trip is the Palmer Institute in
Sedalia, N.C. The school began by
the innovative Charlotte Hawkins
Brown in 1902 to provide a quality
education of African-Americans
stands today as edifices of the
















strength, courage and pride disman-
tled by desegregation in 1971.
Charlotte Hawkins Brown
The story of Charlotte Hawkins
Brown and the Palmer Institute is
the story of how one person, com-
mitted to the well being of a com-
munity and a people, can make a
profound difference in the lives of
others. It is a story to inspire the
best in all of us.
Young eighteen year old Charlotte
Hawkins arrived in what is present
day Sedalia in 1901 with an assign-


Institute
ment from the American i
Missionary Society to teach '
at the Bethany Institute, a
struggling school in the -
small predominantly
African American commu-
nity. Soon after her arrival '
the Association decided to
close the school after one
term, yet Charlotte
Hawkins, encouraged by
members of the community
to stay, saw opportunity

Highway 70) in an old black- Life in the dorms included rooms of to for
smith's shop, and soon had senior girls and four for youngerr ones.


raised the money from friends and
associates back in New England to
open the Palmer Memorial Institute,
a day school and boarding school,
named after her mentor from her
hometown of Cambridge Mass.
Charlotte Hawkins, soon to
become Charlotte Hawkins Brown,
would go on to lead and guide the
Palmer Institute for over fifty years.
It is worth the better part of a
morning or afternoon to walk the
large campus, read the various signs
about the many buildings, and take
a tour of "Canary House," Mrs.
Brown's home, restored much as the
way it was (including furniture)
when Dr. Brown lived and enter-
tained there. There is a short video
which excellently captures the spir-
it of Dr. Brown and the school.


The buildings of the Palmer
Instinrte. novw declared a historic
site and one of the few in the nation
dedicated to African-American
women, is complete minus the main
building destroyed by fire that was
the impetus to the school's closing.
Three dormitories, Kimball Dining
Hall, the bell tower, the teahouse
(campus store), and several teach-
ers' cottages are all viewable on the
campus. Each of the buildings carry
a marker and pictures to take you
back in time. There is also a full gift
shop and interactive museum where
you can purchase Brown's required
student handbook, The Correct
Thing to Do, to Say, to Wear. The


The impressive Galen Hall was one of three girls' dormitories on the Palmer Campus housing 150 girls.


museum links Dr. Brown and
Palmer Institute to the larger themes
of African American women, edu-
cation, and social history, empha-
sizing the contributions made by
African American citizens to educa-
tion in North Carolina.
Dr. Charlotte Hawkins Brown ran
the Palmer Institute for 50 years
touching the lives of countless
young men and women. The
African American school evolved
from an agricultural and manual
training facility to a fully accredit-


ed, nationally recognized preparato-
ry school. More than 1,000 students
graduated during Brown's 50-year
presidency. She died in 1961. Ten
years and three administrations
later the school closed its doors.
Bennett College purchased the
Palmer campus which had grown to
400 acres, but in 1980, it sold 40
acres of the main campus with
major surviving buildings to the
American Muslim Mission. The
Muslims attempted to establish a
teacher's college for a short time,


but on much of the campus the
decay which began in 1971 contin-
ued unabated.
The school was named a historic
site in 1985 after efforts of Maria
Cole, Mrs. Brown's (and widow of
Nat King Cole) niece who was
raised on the campus.
Palmer Institute is located in
Sedalia, NC in between Durham
and Winston Salem. The Visitor's
Center is open daily Monday -
Saturday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.


The interactive museum gives you a glimpse at the life of students
complete with a video, artifacts and a gift shop.


What is so
impressive is the ongoing rip-
ple effect of the school in commu-
nities far and wide, as graduates of
the Palmer Institute have them-
selves gone on to make a difference
in places far and near.
The video will give you insight as
to life for the average student on the
palatial campus. At a time when
many Black Americans were sub-
jected to as second class education,
Palmer students lived in gender ori-
ented dorms complete with a beau-
ty salon, infirmary, indoor plumb-
ing and a theater. They were enter-
tained by the likes of Count Basie
and Marion Anderson. And the site
of Mrs. brown's good friends, Dr.
Mary Bethune, Booker T.
Washington, Dr. E.B. DuBois and
Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt strolling
the campus was not strange.
Education at the school was also to
a higher standard. Ninety-eight per-
cent of the students went on to col-
lege and sixty-four percent com-
pleted advanced degrees setting
standards we are still reaching for
today.

THE CLASSROOM RULES
1. Always greet the teacher
when meeting for the first time,
whether it be morning or not.
2. Be sure that you have every-
thing you need--text, paper,
pen, etc. Don't be a carpenter
without tools.
3. When called on to recite,
always make some sort of reply.
Don't sit dumbly in the seat
and say nothing. Don't even
think too long. Valuable min-
utes are wasted thus.
4. When standing or sitting,
hold yourself erect. Don't
slouch. Talk clearly and suffi-
ciently loud for everyone in the
room to hear.
Don't make a habit of laughing
at the mistakes of others. This
often hinders a person from
doing his best.
5. Don't deface property.
Writing on or cutting into
desks or chairs, writing and
drawing in books, breaking the
backs, or turning down the cor-
ners of pages of texts are evi-
dences of poor training.

Four Newark College Students Shot Execution Style


NEWARK, NJ The destinies of
three promising college friends
came to an abrupt and violent end in
a New Jersey schoolyard last week-
end.
Authorities investigating the chill-
ing deaths say that when they
viTived at the Mount Vernon school,
they found that three of the victims
had been lined up against a wall,
forced to their knees and shot in the
head execution-style. A fourth vic-
tim was found in the bleachers
about 30 feet away with gunshot
and knife wounds to her face; she
had somehow survived.
It all happened just before mid-
night Saturday. Terrance Aeriel, 18,
Dashon Harvey, 20, lofemi
Hightower, 20, and Ariel's sister,
Natasha, were hanging out at the
school eating food and listening to
music when at least five men came
over to them.
Newark Police Director Garry
McCarthy said the four exchanged
text messages saying they should
leave, but were attacked before they
could do so.
'Police said the attackers shot one
young woman, then forced her three
companions down an alley, lined
them up against a wall, made them
kneel and shot each in the head.
The Aerials' mother, Renee Tucker,
said the last time she saw them was
around 10:30 p.m. Saturday, when
they told her they were going
around the corer to get something
to eat.
"They said they were going to
come right back to the house,"
Tucker said.
Newark Police Director Gary
McCarthy said the presence of the
men apparently made them uneasy
because they started texting each
other saying, "Let's get out here!"
But it was too late, The New York
Times reports.

Aeriel's 19-year-old sister, Natasha,
survived. She's in fair condition at a
hospital.
"I'm in shock. It doesn't seem real,"
Renee Tucker, the mother of the
Aeriel siblings said at a news con-
ference Sunday. "This needs to
stop."
Donna Jackson, president of Take
Back Our Streets, a community-
based organization, told AP that
"Anyone who has children in the
city is in panic mode," adding that
the shooting will open people's eyes
to let them see that not every person
killed in Newark is a drug dealer.
Police say none of them had crim-
inal records, and relatives and
neighbors said they were not
involved in drinking, drugs or
gangs, WCBS-TV in New York City
reports.

were students at aDelaware State

FORT WORTH, Texas Fed up
with deadly drive-by shootings,
incessant drug dealing and graffiti,
cities nationwide are trying a dif-
ferent tactic to combat gangs:
They're suing them.
Fort Worth and San Francisco are
among the latest to file lawsuits
against gang members, asking
courts for injunctions barring
them from hanging out together
on street covers, in cars or any-
where else in certain areas.
The injunctions are aimed at dis-
rupting gang activity before it can
escalate. They also give police
legal reasons to stop and question
gang members, who often are
found with drugs or weapons,
authorities said. In some cases,
they don't allow gang members to
even talk to people passing in cars
or to carry spray paint.
"It is another tool," said Kevin
Rousseau, a Tarrant County assis-
tant prosecutor in Fort Worth,
which recently filed its first civil
injunction against a gang. "This is
more of a proactive approach."
But critics say such lawsuits go
too far, limiting otherwise lawful
activities and unfairly targeting
minority youth.
"If you're barring people from
talking in the streets, it's difficult
to tell if they're gang members or
if they're people discussing
issues," said Peter Bibring, an
attorney with the American Civil
Liberties Union of Southern
California. "And it's all the more
troubling because it doesn't seem
to be effective."
Civil injunctions were first filed
against gang members in the
1980s in the Los Angeles area, a
breeding ground for gangs includ-
ing some of the country's most
notorious, such as the Crips and
18th Street.
The Los Angeles city attorney's
suit in 1987 against the Playboy
Gangster Crips covered the entire
city but was scaled back after a
judge deemed it too broad.' --. -
Chicago tried to 'target gangs by
enacting an anti-loitering ordi-
nance in 1992 but the U.S.
Supreme Court struck it down in
1999, saying it gave police the
authority to arrest without cause.
Since then, cities have used
injunctions to target specific
gangs or gang members, and so far
that strategy has withstood court


challenges.
Los Angeles now has 33 perma-
nent injunctions involving 50
gangs, and studies have shown
they do reduce crime, said
Jonathan Diamond, a spokesman
for the Los Angeles City
Attorney's Office.
The injunctions prohibit gang
members from associating with
each other, carrying weapons, pos-
sessing drugs, committing crimes
and displaying gang symbols in a
safety zone neighborhoods
where suspected gang members
live and are most active. Some
injunctions set curfews for mem-
bers and ban them from possess-
ing alcohol in public areas even
if they're of legal drinking age.
Those who disobey the order face
a misdemeanor charge and up to a
year in jail. Prosecutors say the
possibility of a jail stay however
short is a strong deterrent, even
for gang members who've already
served hard time for other crimes.
"Seven months in jail is a big
penalty for sitting on the front
porch or riding in the car with
your gang buddies," said Kinley
Hegglund, senior assistant city
attorney for Wichita Falls.
Last summer, Wichita Falls sued
15 members of the Varrio
Carnales gang after escalating vio-
lence with a rival gang, including
about 50 drive-by shootings in
less than a year in that North
Texas city of 100,000.
Since then, crime has dropped
about 13 percent in the safety zone
and real estate values are climb-
ing, Hegglund said.
Other cities hope for similar
results.
San Francisco City Attorney
Dennis Herrera sued four gangs in
June after an "explosion" in gang
violence, seven months after filing
the city's first gang-related civil
injunction.
Fort Worth sued 10 members of
the Northcide Four Trey Gangsta
Crips in May after two gang mem-
..bers-were killed in escalating vio-
lence, said Assistant City Attorney
Chris Mosley.
"Our hope is that these defen-
dants will be scared into compli-
ance just by having these injunc-
tions against them," Mosley said:
However, some former gang
members say such legal maneu-
vers wouldn't have stopped them.


Could Mr. Right Be White? More Black Women


Thinking

:by D. Walker
:For years, Toinetta Jones played
the dating game by the rules.
"'Mom always told me, 'Don't you
ever bring a white man home,'"
recalled Jones, echoing an edict
issued by many Southern, black
mothers.
'But at 37, the Alexandria divorcee
has shifted to dating "anyone who
asks me out," regardless of race.
"I don't sit around dreaming about
the perfect black man I'm going to
marry," Jones said. Black women
around the country also are recon-
sidering deep-seated reservations
toward interracial relationships,
reservations rooted in America's
history of slavery and segregation.
They're taking cues from their
favorite stars from actress Shar
Jackson to tennis pro Venus
Williams as well as support blogs,
how-to books and interracially
themed novels telling them it's OK
to "date out."
It comes as statistics suggest
American black women are among
the least likely to marry.
"I'm not saying that white men are
the answer to all our problems,"
Jones said. "I'm just saying that
they offer a different solution."
:She reflects many black women
frustrated as the field of marriage-
able black men narrows: They're
nearly seven times more likely to be
incarcerated than white men and
more than twice as likely to be
unemployed.
Census data showed 117,000 black
wife-white husband couples in
2006, up from 95,000 in 2000.
' There were just 26,000 such cou-


g Past th

ples in 1960, before a Supreme
Court ruling banished laws against
mixed marriages.
Black female-white male romance
has become a hot topic in black-
geared magazines and on Web sites,
even hitting the big screen in
movies like last year's "Something
New."
That film centers on an affluent
black woman who falls for her
white landscaper, a situation not
unlikely as black women scale the
corporate ladder, said Evia Moore,
whose interracial marriage blog
draws 1,000 visitors a day.
It features articles like "Could Mr.
Right Be White?" and pictures of
couples like white chef Wolfgang
Puck and his new Ethiopian wife.
"Black women are refusing to
comply with that message about
just find yourself a good blue-collar
man with a job, or just find a black
man," Moore said.
She pointed to low rates of black
men in college, a place where
women of all races often meet their
spouses.
Black women on campus largely
are surrounded by non-black men:
In 2004, 26.5 percent of black
males ages 18 to 24 were enrolled
in college versus 36.5 percent of
black women that age, according to
the American Council on
Education's most recent statistics.
Even after college, Roslyn
Holcomb struggled to meet profes-
sional black men.
"I wanted to get married (and)
have children," she said. "If I was
only meeting one guy a year, or
every few years, that wasn't going

to happen."
The Alabama author eventually
married white.
"I think a lot of black women are
realizing or feeling that the pickings
are slim," she said.
They're made even slimmer, grum-
ble many black women, by high
rates of successful black men
choosing blondes. For some. the\
argue, white wives are the ultimate
status symbol.
"They don't want a dark choco-
late sister laying around their
swimming pool," Moore
said.
Nearly three quarters
of the 403,000
black-white cou-
ples in 2006
involved black
husbands.
Meanwhile,
psychological bar-
riers have discour-
aged black women
from crossing racial
lines.
"Black women are ,ocial-
ized to stick by their men."
explained Kellina Craig-
Henderson, a Howard Uni.ersiry
psychology professor who studied
15 black women dating interracial-
ly.
She said modern black women
agonize over breaking male-female
bonds forged in slavery and
strengthened through the Jim Crow
era.
"It may be even more of an issue
for educated black women who
have a sense of the historical reali-
ties of this country, where black


women often were abused at the
hands of white men," Craig-
Henderson said.
Jones remembered being troubled
when a white man politely
approached her around 1990. Her
stance softened years later, after a
sobering party experience.
"All the black men liter-
all\ pushed
I uS


out the
way to talk to the
blondes," said Jones, who
soon declared, "I'm going to date
whoever."
Black men and women have open-
ly feuded before.
At places like Atlanta's Spelman
College, black women have rallied
against black male rappers charac-
terizing them as promiscuous.
But black men are voicing their


own frustrations with women they
feel regard them with suspicion.
"They treat us all the same," said W.
Randy Short, a Washington writer
who dates across races. "The rapist
on the TV is the same as me."
It's a frustration director Tim
Alexander tackles in "Diary of a


Tired Black Man," a frank film cov-
ering everything from black
women's demeanors to their weight.
Frustrated by black women, the
main character dates a white one.
"To a certain degree, black people
are sick of each other," Alexander
said. "It would be better for black
men and black women to open their


options."
But Ayo Handy-Kendi, creator of
Black Love Day, argues blacks are
simply reacting to messages linking
success with whiteness. She
referred to a string of successful
athletes with white partners, includ-
ing golfer Tiger Woods.
"They normally rejected their cul-
ture and they went to the
acceptable stan-
dard of
suc-


celss
a \\ white
k7..i'oman, said
Hand -Kdenrd\, who
thought it ironic high-achieving
black women were mimicking the
behavior.
Back in Virginia, Jones feels life is
too short to ponder race when it
comes to love.
As for mom, Jones figures, "she
really admires the fact that I did
something she may have really
wanted to do, and never did."

HALLE AND BILLY BOB TO TEAM AGAIN
Oscar-winning US actress Halle
Berry will star alongside actor Billy
Bob Thornton in a Hollywood movie
about racism in the southern state of
Texas.
The legal drama "Tulia" will tell the
tale of a small Texan town where a
tenth of the black population was tar-
geted by drugs charges in 1999 and
later mostly pardoned -- a case that
drew accusations of racism.
Berry and Thornton will be directed
in the film by John Singleton, who
directed the 1991 cult classic "Boyz n the Hood".
The 40-year-old actress won the Oscar for best actress in 2002 for her per-
formance in "Monster's Ball," -- a film in which she played a black woman
who had an affair with a white racist portrayed by Thornton.
LIL ROMEO BUYS CHIP COMPANY
Romeo Miller is following in the entrepreneurial *
footsteps of his father Percy "Master P." Miller, as
the 18-year-old rapper/actor recently purchased
Rap Snacks Inc., a popular potato chip brand
founded in 1994
The younger Miller purchased the corporation for
an undisclosed amount, acquiring the rights to the
Rap Snacks line of potato chips, which are dubbed
"The Official Snack of Hip Hop."
Each Rap Snack bag features a cartoon image and
biography of a rapper who is endorsing the product.
"I think it's incredible," Master P. told AllHipHop.com. "All my life I was
looking to build a generation of wealth and to have your family understand
that is great."
CHRIS ROCK IS NOT THE BABY DADDY
DNA tests have recently proven that Chris Rock is of no relation to a 13-
year-old boy, whose mother once dated the comedian and claimed Rock
was her son's biological father.
As previously reported, Kali Bowyer had gone to various newspapers
and tabloid outlets accusing Rock of neglecting his responsibilities toward
the boy, who was said to be ill and in need of financial help to pay med-
ical expenses.
TWO MORE BROWN KIDS STEP FORWARD
Not only was James Brown the Godfather of
Soul, he also the father to many. Of the numer-
ous DNA testing on folks claiming to be offspring
of James Brown, at least two tests have come back
positive, according to Buddy Dallas, a longtime
advisor for the late entertainer.
It is reported that two of the positive claimants
include a 45-year-old retired flight attendant and
teacher in Houston, showed the newspaper a report
that says there is a 99.99 percent probability she is Brown's daughter.
During a cq9!jrt jp. Los Angeles in the early 1960s, Brown pulled her
mother mother from the audience and she became his girlfriend, Petitt told
the newspaper. But when her mother became pregnant, they split.
Throughout the years, Petitt's mother would point out Brown as her father
whenever he appeared on television, Petitt said.
Petitt said that she met Brown at concerts and spoke to him over the
phone, but that he never acknowledged being her father.
"I was angry that he was out there making all this money, and he was-
n't doing anything for my mother and me," Petitt told the newspaper. "I
could have had a better life."
USHER "HAPPILY MARRIED"
Usher released a statement to Usmagazine.com about his private wedding
over the weekend to Tameka Foster, which took place six days after he
called off the original wedding ceremony in New York.
"I exchanged vows with Tameka Foster in Atlanta on Friday and we
are happily married," the 28-year-old singer tells Usmagazine.com in a
story posted Monday. His mother who was reportedly against his marriage
to the criminal record holding mother of three was also in attendance.


NEW YORK Whoopi Goldberg
will bring no celebrity feuds with
her when she joins "The View," at
least none that she's aware of.
"Who knows?" she told The
Associated Press. "Anybody could
say 'I don't like her.' That's OK. I
just won't come to your home."
That already sets Goldberg apart
from her predecessor. "The View,"
putting Rosie O'Donnell in its
rearview mirror, officially intro-
duced Goldberg to the show's audi-
ence as its moderator on
Wednesday. She'll start full time the
day after Labor Day.
The show is on the lookout for
another cast member to join
Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth
Hasselbeck and creator Barbara
Walters. That person won't be
named until the fall, Walters said.
O'Donnell announced this spring
she was leaving ABC's daytime talk
show after less than a year filled
with controversy and feuds with
Donald Trump and co-star
Hasselbeck, among others.
Despite O'Donnell's polarizing
presence or maybe because of it -
ratings shot up last year.
Goldberg, 51, gives "The View" a
genuinely big name and distinct
personality in her own right. She's
among the select few performers to
win an Oscar, Emmy, Tony and
Grammy award.
She's no stranger to political con-
troversy, although that part of her
resume isn't quite as filled as
O'Donnell's. Goldberg was dumped
from a Slim-Fast advertising cam-
paign in 2004 after making a speech
mocking the Bush administration at


a political rally, at one point using
the president's surname as a sexual
reference.
"She'll be potentially less contro-
versial than Rosie but still have a
bit of an edge," said Bill Carroll, an
expert in syndication for Katz
Television.
Advertisers are likely to be happy
with the choice, he said.
Goldberg said she's looking for-
ward to talking about what's going
on during what promises to be an
interesting year ahead. She'll be the
moderator, meaning it will general-
ly be her job to steer the discussion
and keep the show running on time.
"I just figure I'm going to be me,"
she said. "They know who I am and
know what I do, so nobody will be
surprised if I disagree strongly but


not meanly. I'll never be mean. It's t
just not in me."
Walters, in an interview, said s
Goldberg isn't being brought in to d
calm a troubled sea.
"What Whoopi will bring us is c
fun," she said. "This is an entertain- e
ment program. We are not a news-
magazine."
She said Goldberg brought a for-
midable combination of smarts and A
skills as an entertainer, and also
adds diversity to the program. "The ,
View" has been without a regular fm
black cast member since Star Jones
Reynolds left under stormy circum-
stances last summer.
There were reports last week that

also black, on as another cast mem-

Tug of War Emerges Over LeVert Estate


Gerald LeVert
A legal tug-of-war is under way
over how Gerald Levert's assets
should be split.
Levert, the velvet-voiced R&B
singer who died in November, left
behind at least $2 million worth of
assets, including two homes, two
Mercedes Benz autos, jewelry,
clothing, furniture, securities and
bank accounts.
The singer's publishing copyrights


and music royalties have yet to be
appraised, and will make up a siz-
able part of Levert's estate, accord-
ing to court records.
The process of divvying up the
local music heroe's estate has
resulted in a legal battle between
Levert's cousin the executor of the
estate and two women who had
children with Levert.
Levert's will named Anthony
Gibson, the singer's cousin and
business manager, as executor. He
launched proceedings in March to
administer the estate.
However, the mothers of two of
Levert's children LeMicah Levert,
17 and Camryn Levert, 8 say
Gibson has left them in the dark
throughout the process. They say
they want to ensure the children
receive their due as the singer's
legal next-of-kin.
A third child, Carlysia Levert, 17,
is also set to inherit from the estate.
The singer's home address has
become a point of contention in the


legal wrangling.
Gibson had planned to dole out the
estate in Cuyahoga County Probate
Court, where, he has argued, the
singer lived and spent most of his
work and free time. The mothers'
lawyers say the process, by law,
should take place in Geauga
County, where Levert had a home
in Newbury Township. :
When asked by a magistrate why
the location mattered, the mothers'
lawyers said they are concerned
over the lack of information they
have received on execution of the
will.
"We're being met with a lot of


resistance," said Steven Cox, who
represents Bridget Pursley,
LeMicah's mother. Pursley and her
son live in New Jersey. The other
mother involved in the dispute is
Margaret Amber Hawkins, who
lives with Camryn in Las Vegas.
Levert suffered from various ail-
ments and died of an accidental pre-
scripliori drug'iov&rdose in, the-,
Newbury Township home.
Levert was never married to the
three women with whom he had
children. The grammy award win-
ning singer died in November, 2006
of an accidental prescription drug
overdose.


Six-week Celebration of Thelonious Monk in NC


RALEIGH, N.C. Thelonious
Monk, whose North Carolina roots
were evident in his music and his
accent long after he moved to New
York, will be the focus of an 18-
event tribute at Duke University.
"Following Monk" opens in
Durham on Sept. 15 with the
Kronos Quartet performing music
commissioned by the festival,
including three world premiere
arrangements of "Round
Midnight." The tribute ends Oct. 28
with a solo piano performance by
Barry Harris, who lived in the same
apartment with Monk during his
final years. The jazz genius died at
age 64 in 1982.
In between, the Following Monk
Institute will offer guided tours of
Monk's birthplace in Rocky Mount,
and the plantation in Newton Grove
where his ancestors were slaves and
where his relatives still live.
Aaron Greenwald, interim director
of Duke Performances, said he was

even though he was raised on West

Stephenson, director of Duke
University's Jazz Loft Project in the

The project is trying to preserve

pher W. Eugene Smith in a New
York City apartment where major
jazz musicians, including Monk,
got together from 1957 to 1965.
Monk's father and mother
divorced after their move to New
York, and Monk rarely returned to
North Carolina. Even so, the 1930
census shows that of the 2,000 peo-
ple living in the immediate vicinity
of the Monks' New York household,
almost 500 were born in North
Carolina.
"The series asks you to ponder,
what did the North Carolina of that
time give us?" Stephenson said.
"And one of those things was
Thelonious Monk. And what an
important, beautiful legacy Monk
left behind."


Flav with his castmates/love interests
America to Get Even More F ; vor
VH1 has signed on for a third season of their hit show "Flavor of Love,"
and this time they're letting the public take part in picking the women who
will compete for Flavor Flav's favor.
Despite talk from Flay and VH1 producers that the "Flavor of Love"
series might be put to rest after two seasons, Flav is back and looking for
love once again.
Over 7 million viewers tuned in last October to watch Public Enemy
hypeman Flavor Flav choose Deelishis (real name London Charles) over
New York (real name Tiffany Pollard) in the season finale of "Flavor of
Love 2." However, history has repeated itself and a true love connection
was missed with Deelishis as it was with "Flavor of Love" season one win-
ner Hoopz.
It's back to the drawing board for Flay, and this time VH 1 is getting view-
ers involved with the casting process. Women interested in wooing Flay in
"Flavor of Love 3" can now submit an audition video to become one of
five women picked to appear on the show. Visitors to the site can also cast
their votes to help judge the competition.
