Have we flipped the script from November 2007?

Thursday, we’ll revisit the infamous Pew report that set the world in motion for a CHANGE. One year ago 13% of African Americans didn’t know Barack Obama. Nearly four in ten said because of diversity, blacks could no longer be thought of as a single race. Blacks were less upbeat about the state of black progress. This was November 2007.



Have we flipped the script a year later?

DryerBuzz & Company’s Yalanda Lattimore will take a look back to see if we flipped the script on the stats and public opinion on the widening gap betwee those who have and have not. Join us as we kick off the debate before in the AM before the LIVE Lunch & Stream at NOON.

There is only ONE race, the HUMAN race. Black, White, etc are ethnicities. Once we get this part right, the argument is moot.

If one uses the Old Testament or Torah as their foundation for life, spiritual and physical, then one would not use color as identification. In the old testament people where know by names such as Egyptains, Hebrews, etc because they both were black people or people of color. If one knows who they are in terms of culture we would be called Hebrews instead of Blacks. We have accept many names since slavery and the reason is simply we don't know who we are. What's next, Brownish? I am Hebrew.

Just out of curiosity, how were you able to determine this? The identifiers used above were simply used to do just that, identify groups. The truth of the matter is that we are ALL African.

I linked the sources above. I'll ask you this, which goes further, truth, fiction or perception?
