The following month, however,
at an event sponsored by Hillsdale
College in Michigan, Thomas was
more combative when asked about
oral arguments.
Suppose surgeons started dis-
cussing the merits of removing a
gallbladder while in the operating
room, Thomas said, as quoted by
U.S. News & World Report. "You
really didn't go in there to have a
debate about gallbladder surgery,"
he said. Similarly, "we are there to
decide cases, not to engage in sem-
inar discussions."

"One thing I've demonstrated
often in 16 years is you can do this
job without asking a single ques-
tion," he told an adoring crowd at
the Federalist Society, a conserva-
tive legal group.
The book tour showed that the
topic comes up even among friend-
ly audiences.
Indeed, Thomas' comment was
provoked by this question: Why do
your colleagues ask so many ques-
His response: "I did not plant that
question. That's a fine question.
Weletyou figure outs the answer,
The typical hourlong argument
session can sometimes be difficult'
even for a practiced questioner.
"I really would like to hear what
those reasons are without interrup-
tion from 11l of my' c~dlleaguesn
Justice John Paul Slevens said atati
argument in the fall.
The newest justice, Samuel Alito,
has said he initially found it hard to
get a question in sometimes amid
all the former law professors on the
The last time Thomas asked a
question in court was Feb. 22, 2006,
in a death penalty case out of South
Carolina. A unanimous court even-
tually broadened the ability of
death-penalty defendants to blame
someone else for the crime.
In the past, the Georgia-born
Thomas has chalked up his silence
to his struggle as a teenager to mas-
ter standard English after having
grown up speaking Geechee, a kind
of dialect that thrived among for-
mer slaves on the islands off the
South Carolina, Georgia and
Florida coasts.
He also has said he will ask a per-
tinent question if his colleagues
don't but sees no need to engage in
the back-and-forth just to hear his
own voice.
Lately, he has focused on the lat-
ter reason,
"If I think a question will help me

decide a case, then I'll ask that ques-
tion," he told C-SPAN's Brian
Lamb in October. "Otherwise, it's
not worth asking because it detracts
from my job."
He talked in that same interview
about descriptions of him as the
silent justice.
"I can't really say that it's unfair
to say that I'm silent in that context.
I would like to, though, be referred
to as the 'listening justice,' you
know," Thomas said. "I still believe
that, if somebody else is talking,
somebody should be listening."

Justice Clarence Thomas
Two years and 142 cases have
passed since Supreme Court Justice
Clarence Thomas last spoke up at

Hardly a case goes by without
eight justices peppering lawyers
with questions. Oral arguments
offer justices the chance to resolve
nagging doubts~ab ut a case, probe
its weaknesses or~mde a point to
their colleague% "'
The last time Supreme Court
Justice Clarence Thomas spoke up
during oral arguments was to ask a
question in a death penalty case on
Feb. 22, 2006.
Left, right and center, the justices
ask and they ask and they ask.
Sometimes they debate each other,
leaving the lawyer at the podium
helpless to jump in. "I think you're
handling these questions very
well," Chief Justice John Roberts
quipped to a lawyer recently in the
midst of one such exchange.
Leaning back in his leather chair,
often looking up at the ceiling,
Thomas takes it all in, but he never
jomns mn.
He occasionally leans to his right
to share a comment or a laugh with
Justice Stephen Breyer. Less often,
he talks to Justice Anthony
Kennedy, to his immediate left.
But in the course of his publicity
tour for his autobiography, "My
Grandfather's Son," the 59-year-old
justice discussed his reticence on
the bench on several occasions.
The questions may be helpful to
the others, Thomas said, but not to

churches seem to be irrelevant to
present day society? T'he answer is
these churches have no power and
the reason they have no power is
because they have no money.
Readers of the book will learn that
they've always had within them the
potential and possibility to become
more and walk in more. Everything
they need is already within them.
They will also discover throughout
the read several keys to unlocking
the wealth already within them.
Some of them are:
* How to condition your mind for
Why you are the most valuable
person on Earth
How to plan your way to riches
The true purpose of money
How to get your treasure work-

ing for you
King Solomon, who was consid-
ered the wisest man who ever lived,
said that money answers all things -
- and he was night. "In our society
money does answer all things,
states Dr. Porter. "Money when
used properly will give you respect,
influence, and the ability to live a
life of freedom." Releasing Your
Inner Treasure stands on the scrip-
ture in 2 Cormnthians 4:7 which
states, "But we have this treasure in
earthen vessels..." Now it is our job
to discover that treasure, stir it up
and release it. God's will is to estab-
lish His Kingdom on earth as it is in
heaven. God's method of accom-
plishmng this is through His
church...and through His peop e.

You may be asking yourself, why Dr. Porter states, "Many congre-

Applicants are asked to reflect
on their lives, their commitment to
the communities in which they
live, and the role models that have
inspired them to become involved
in their community or in a specif-
ic prospective career.
Applications are due to The
Zonta Club of Jacksonville by

be pre-university or pre-college
students (age 16-20). Students

Zonta Club of Jacksonville direct-
ly to obtain the application.

blacks during Jim Crow
and segregation beginning
in 1885, later became
Methodist Hospital. Dr.
Williams not only operat-
ed a highly successful
internal medicine practice, but was considered a "black giant
in science." He was an ingenuous inventor with a passion for
chemistry that led him to create a number of health care prod-
ucts including the formula for Kramer Cough Syrup. He also
did considerable research on the heart and created tablets to
provide relief to cardiac patients.
Dr. Williams used his love of science and spirit of entreprt-
neurship to venture outside the field of medicine. He estab-
lished the Velveteen Chemical Company, which developed
numerous hair care products such as follicle and shaft growth
and restoration, conditioner, shampoo and tonic. He believed
that with hard work, there were no limitations on what anyone,
especially African Americans, could accomplish.
Dr. Williams was married to the late Arnolta Williams, a com-
munity leader and civil rights activist in her own right, and
father to the late Dr. Hortense Williams Gray, an educator and
historian. He died in 1970.

Lincoln Golf and Country Club (Founded 1927)
Built in 1927, Lincoln Golf and
Country Club became one of the
) South's first black-owned golf and
'~country club facilities. It was con-
sidered the "pnide and showcase of
southern blacks" fr~om the 1920s
though thre 19L50s, becoming a social
4 .,and recreational center for affluent
~ people of. color. Black celebrities
like world heavyweight champ Joe
Louis played golf andi enjoyed tne
dining and socializing at the Lincoln Club. Joe Louis helped to integrate the sport. Blacks played
for the first time in the PGA in 1957.
Co-founder and former president of the Afro-American Life Insur~ance Company, A.L. Lewis
thought that a country club would be a sound investment. H-e owned land near U.S. I in
Jacksonville and decided to build Lincoln Golf and Country Club. Blacks weren't allowed to
become members of country clubs in the majority community, so Lewis created a facility that gave
prominent African Americans access to golf, tennis courts and more. Lewis became the club's
treasurer. Other affluent members and officers included Dr. S.P. Livingston and D.W. P'owell. .
After World War II, whites were admitted as members of Lincoln Goll` and Country Club, and it
became the city's first integrated golf club. When A.L,. L.ewis dlied, the Inlcility and land were sold
to a construction company. Today the area is the site of` a housingp developments.

7 ~A.L. Lewis (1865 1947)
Born in 1865 in Madison, Florida, Abraham Lincoln (A.L.) Lewis was a
pioneering, visionary, and highly successful businessman who became
Florida's first African American millionaire. He was at the forefront of eco.
nomic development for African Americans on the First Coast for the first
\ ~four decades of the 20th century. He was also a true philanthropist and com-
munity leader who believed in providing opportunities for others.
In 1880, Lewis moved to Jacksonville, where he worked in a lumber-
,g ~ yard/sawmill. His leadership skills became evident when Lewis joined the
$ ~African Methodist Episcopal Church in 1884 and served in several capaci-
ties. He also worked in a Masonic Order and through his business acumen,
the Masonic Temple of greater Jacksonville was built in the early 1900's.
Lewis was perhaps best known for co-founding with six other businessmen the Afro-American Life
Insurance Company in Bethel Baptist Institutional Church in 1901. Each of the Afro-American Life
Insurance Company's seven founders contributed one hundred dollars to fund a burial league, organiz-
ing the Afro-American Industrial Benefit Association. This association evolved into the Afro-American
Life Insurance Company, Florida's first: African-American-owned insurance company. Called "the
Afro," this company became Florida's first African-American firm7 to earn more than one million dol-
lars in revenue. Lewis held the positions of treasurer; secretary and general manager; president and
treasurer; and chairman of the board from 1901 through the 1940's.
Lewis helped to found both the Negro Business League with Booker T. Washington and the National
Negro Insurance Association. He was a heavy contributor to black colleges such as Edwar~d Waters
College and Bethune Cookman University, where he served on the Board of Tlrustees for more than
twenty years. Additionally, Lewis created Florida's first black-owned bottling company.
Segregation prevented African Americans from using Jacksonville's recreational facilities, so L~ewis
founded in 1927 Florida's oldest, black-owned golf club, Lincoln Golf and Country Club. In 1935, he
bought two beachfront acres in Nassau County,, establishing American Beach, a thriving vacation spot
for African-Americans in the 1930s, '40s and '510s,
A.L. Lewis died in 1947 and was interred in the family crypt in a historic black Jacksonville cemetery.

Try Chocolate For Better Skin
Turns out, it was just a myth. Eating chocolate does not cause skmn
blemishes. In fact, according to research that appeared in the Journal of

Dur:'::: 1-e:.h stuy geerht r Ho bs e 4 uwo an who were
instructed to drink one of two cocoa beverages once a day. One drink
was high in antioxidants, while the other drink was low. During the
study, researchers tested the skin properties of each woman, including
their blood flow, texture and hydration.
At the end of the trial, researchers found that the women who drank the
cocoa high in antioxidants actually experienced up to a 43 percent
improvement in each of these areas. In all, they showed an increase in
skin density, decreased roughness and scaling, and a 50 percent increase
in blood flow to the skin. The women who drank the cocoa that was low
in antioxidants experienced no changes at all.
So what's the reasoning behind this piece of good news? Apparently,
antioxidants are masters at fighting cellular damage. To make sure that
you're getting the most antioxidants out of your candy bar, be sure to
check that it contains at least 60 percent or more cocoa. And then...sim-
ply sit back and enjoy!

"Sit up straight -- youI'll hurt your
back," Mom always said. It turns
out Mom was wrong, according to a
u g stud90 rhfound sitting in an
more strain on the back than sitting
in a slightly reclined 135-degree
"Everybody knows that if you sit
for long periods you have back
pain," said Dr. Amir Bashir, a radi-
ologist from the University of
Alberta Hospital in Canada.
To search for the optimal back-
friendly sitting position, Bashir and
colleagues used a "positional" MRI

surgery as they sat in three different
positions: a slouching position in
which the body is hunched forward,
like over a keyboard; an upright
straight-back position with legs at
90-degrees and knees and hips at
the same level; and a "relaxed" 135-
degree tilt back position. "In this
position, the legs are lower than the

hips and the back is slightly for-
ward with a normal curvature
which provides lumbar support,"
Bashi eoxundt the reclined 135-
degree position is the ideal sitting
position because it actually is simi-
lar to a neutral relaxed lying down
position," Bashir told Reuters
Potentially harmful spinal disk
movement was most pronounced
with the 90-degree sitting position;
it was least pronounced with the
135-degree relaxed position, indi-
cating that less strain is placed on
th pne tn asoae nmules
"With the 90-degree sitting posi-
tion, your back goes completely
straight and you're actually strain-
ing your back against gravity,"
Bashir noted.
As expected, "the bending forward
or slouching position is the worst
sitting position for your back," he

-Shoes should be comfortable

"break them in."
SBuy different sneakers for differ-
ent athletic activities.
-Limit the amount of time wearing
of high heels.
"Ideally, I'd like to convince
women that there are plenty of nice
looking shoes out there with low
heels and good support and to stay
away from high heels, and that
includes chunky and wedge heels,"
said Albreski. "But realistically, I'll

blisters, corns, cal-
luses, back pain,

The pressure on
the toes can lead to
deformities, such
as bunions, claw
toes, corns and
thick nails."
According to Dr.
Albreski another
problem, almost
exclusive to
women, is neuro-
ma, caused by tight
and narrow styles.
"When the shoe
pushes your foot in
tighter and pinches
a nerve, tissue

grows around that nerve and cause
severe pain," said Dr. Albreski.
"This occurs between the third and
fourth toes or along the sole of the
foot. In extreme cases, surgery may
be required."
Open-toed sandal heels and back-
less sandals pose yet another prob-
lem. "There is little support from a
few straps," said Dr. Albreski. "A
quick turn or stumble can easily
cause you to become off-balance,
putting you at risk for a fall and a
turned ankle or worse," he said.
"Platform shoes, popular this sea-
son, are even more unstable." Toes
are at risk too. "Toes often extend
over sandals exposing them to
injury and pain," said Dr. Albreski.
Preventing foot problems is Dr.
Albreski's primary goal. His

The Real Reason Black

People Don't Want
to Vote for Obamna

Ib am ac icalou eething with all of the black people,
especially so called "intelligent", "educated", black people giving a million
tired excuses of why they won't vote for Barack Obama and will vote for a
Hillary Clinton...
1. He's not ready/He's not experienced. Man please. You have the top
3 Democratic candidates with 1 Senate term under their belt. Hillary as the
First Lady has experience? Not one executive decision is made as the first
lady. That's like Stedman recommending a book, endorsing a candidate, or
having his own show...SO WHAT.
2. White America is not ready for a Black president. Was White
America ready for slavery to end? Giving us the right to vote?
Desegregation of our society? When did black people ever let white people
dictate when and where we were getting our just due, our break? We've
always stepped up and demanded what we wanted, or we were either hitting
the streets and tearin' up some stuff, escapin', marching, or picketing.
3. Barack is half black and half white, so he's not really black anyway.
I should blacksmack anyone who has ever thought that. Ever heard of the
one drop rule? It has not only been a social standard for WHO is black, but
it was also upheld in the Constitution in keeping us from suing a white per-
son over personal property. No black person ever refers to another black per-
son as "biracial". You black. You might have another heritage in your line-
age, but this country as well as any other sees you as black, PERIOD. Lame
excuse people.
4. I don't know what issues Barack stands for. When the heck has that
ever prevented black folk from voting for a black candidate, really? I guess
now, but the main people saying that couldn't tell you anything about
Hillary's or John Edwards platform either. Please stop fronting.
5. All he did was give that one speech. How many great people have
defined their lives, the scope of human history, and changed the world in a
speech? Moses, Jesus, Paul, Martin Luther, Frederick Douglas, Abraham
Lincoln, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, Martin Luther
King, Jr., John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Ronald Reagan, Nelson Mandela,
Jesse Jackson, and Jim Valvano all have changed the course of the history of
the world and the hearts of billions of men and women in societies since the
beginning of time with a speech.
That is the purpose of a rally. A person speaks, and it prepares all to act in
relation to the spirit of what is spoken. That is why we go to church, not to
just hear our pastor blather, but to refresh God in our hearts and spurn us to
take up God's will in our lives. So save all that ying yang about that speech.
6. If all of those white people are supporting him, he must be in their
back pocket. You can also save the conspiracy theory. He's liked because
lie comes at a time where a person that looks exactly like them lied to their
face (two in a row, if you include Bill Clinton with Monica and of course
Bush with Iraq), and flat out said what no politician would admit: We have
two Americas, blue and red, black and white. It was not publicly said, and
on top of that proposed that we ACTUALLY DO something about it, not
find more ways to be divided and not come together despite our differences.
Noble concept and one to be championed. That's JFK, FDR, and Abe
Lincoln material. So they were feeling it, just like I was and you should too.
His legislative work has been indicative of this as well, including his Fuel
Standard work with President Bush. Check the resume, it shines.

We won't be able to say, "America is racist", "I cannot get a break because
I'm black", and all other random excuses many blacks make for not achiev-
ing anything in their lives.
WE'LL LOSE HOPE. If a black man becomes President, I honestly
believe many black people feel that all of the world's problems should come
to an end. No more crack selling, no more black on black crime, no more
baby mama drama and dead beat daddies, no more people on welfare and on
the chow line, no more winos, no more police brutality, no more DWB, no
more predatory loans, no more ghettos, no more racism period, no more
Middle East unrest, just everybody singing Kumbaya. To some degree, I
think a lot of white people, especially liberal, feel that way too, that's why
they are supporting him as well.
THAT'S RIDICULOUS. If it happened, he'd be one of the greatest people
that ever lived, but that's way too much pressure to put on one man. I feel
that people are really not ready for the world to get better anyway. It's like
that father you never knew but won't make a relationship with because you
don't want to be let down. It's unfair and let that go. Barack will make a great
::-:::::.,boul e won' sole a f the world's problems, nor can he solve all
blacks with degrees could do nothing but shine shoes outside the company.
Now we're in them, making decisions, even CEOs like my man Stanley
O'NTeal, the first black American to take the helm of a major Wall Street firm.
That brother completely mismanaged the company, like many others who
mismanaged banks causing losses equity because of security back sub prime
loans. Now, those that are in the know are afraid that a black man cannot
ever get that opportunity to be THE MAN at a major institution again.
Not only that, if Barack messes it up, there will be a backlash on all of
black America. "You guys had your chance to run the free world, and you
blew it".
Sorry Charlie, Barack is one man. You can't use the logic for yourself as
far as getting ahead, but lose it for this man. George Bush completely
botched America's standing in the world, but I don't see anyone afraid to
elect another white man. So come off of it.

ing to read a book.
We have to teach our children
that knowledge is power and the
slave master knew it. They knew
that with some education slaves
would be much harder deal with.
The relevance of that information
should inspire black youth today.
I know that I am getting old
because it seems like I am loosing
more understanding with young
folk every year. I really do not
understand why more minorities,
especially black youth are not tak-
ing advantage of the educational
opportunities available for them.
When I was in high school we
still had to use the encyclopedia for
research and rely on counselors for
collegiate information of any sort.
If the internet was around then, 1
would probably be a genius or
multi-millionaire today. The possi-
bilities are endless.
Hundreds of thousands of
Americans white and black fought
and died for blacks and women to
have equal rights in this country.
How can we let those sacrifices
fade away in vain'? Or better yet,
how do we let those sacrifices dry
up "Like a raisin in the sun."
So a lack of educational opportu-
nities is no longer the problem, but
I am certainly not saying that
blacks no longer face challenges in
this country. There are still many
inequalities that exist in the hous-
ing finance industry, college admit-
tance, Corporate America and
many other areas.
There's an old hymnal that
church folk sing that says, "Soon
and very soon we are going to see
the King." Well, soon and very

soon we are see how much
America h~as matured racially.
Blacks have consistently made
strides in this country. Langston
Hughes once said, "I swear to the
Lord I still can't see why
Democracy means everybody but
But is that still the case?
Presidential candidate Barack
Obama will test that notion soon
and very soon.
Malcolm X once said, "If you
stick a knife nine inches mnto my
back and pull it out three inches,
that is not progress. Even if you
pull it all the way out, that is not
progress. Progress is healing the
wound, and America hasn't even
begun to pull out the knife."
So again, the question at hand is
has America as a whole progressed
enough to truly make history in
2008 by electing the first black
president ever? Has that knife that
Malcolm talked about been not
only pulled out, but is the wound
Time will certainly tell the story.
Zora Neale Hurston said, "There
are years that ask questions and
years that answer." The question
has been asked and this year will
provide that answer.
I cannot say it enough that Black
History Month is a time for not
only reflecting back at our past
accomplishments, but it's a time to
also look forward. There are a lot
of ailments that affect our commu-
nity education continues to be the
Signing off from Edward Waters
Reggie Fullwood

"It is a peculiar sensation, this
double-consciousness, this sense of
always looking at one's self
through the eyes of others. .. One
ever feels his twoness,-an
American, a Negro; two souls, two
thoughts, two unreconciled striv-
ings; two warring ideals in one
dark body, whose dogged strength
alone keeps it from being torn
These are the words of W.E.B.
Dubois, and they written over 100
years ago in his book, "The Souls
of Black Folk."
It's this "twoness" that Dubois
talks about that for many years has
made many blacks feel that we
couldn't achieve in this country. It's
that same feeling of twoness that
has discouraged so many African
Americans from following their
It is funny how that past still
speeches to us today. I continue to
say that the long term solution for
improving our communities rest in
the arena of education.
It's what Dubois and Booker T.
Washington debated about in the
late 1800s and early 1900s. How to
best educate former slaves so that
they can be self-sufficient and pro-
vide for their families. Of course
Washington wanted blacks to focus
more on trades while Dubois
favored a more formal education in
the classroom.
Regardless of their methods of
trying to help black folk, education
was at the center of the debate.
Again, that was some 100 years
ago, but it's probably even more
relevant today. How do we reverse
the cycles of poverty we see in our

communities? How do we create a
stronger black middle class? How
do get more black professionals
and business executives'?
Education is still the solution
whether it's 1908 or 2008. And
black leaders have known this from
the days of slavery until now.
George Washington Carver once
said, "Education is the key to
unlock the golden door of fr~ee-
"Educate your sons and daugh-
ters, send them to school, and show
them that beside the cartridge box,
the ballot box, and the jury box,
you have also the knowledge box,"
said Frederick Douglas.
Congresswoman Barbara Jordan
said, "Education remains the key to
both economic and political
"Education is the sole and only
hope of the Negro race in
America," stated Booker T
Many viewed him as a militant,
but the real story of Malcolm X
tells a totally different story. He
knew the importance of education
saying, "Education is our passport
to the future, for tomorrow belongs
to the people who prepare for it
So that past has relevance even
Remember that old racist saying
that if you want to hide something
from a black man, put it in a book?
Most of you know this, but it's
important that our youth under-
stand why the slave master didn't
want their slaves to know how to
read or write. A slave could be
killed if caught reading or attempt-
