    BRAVO!! You tell it like it is! What makes your blog even more substantial, is the fact that a part of your ancestry is from Africa as well, but you have a LOT more common sense and wisdom than the loser guy on the subway…that should get the point across good and hard! Keep up the assertiveness…soon you’ll be on my (as I affectionately call it) “asshole hero” list with Asshole Karl H, Joe Biden, GW, Keith’s friend Hannah M, and many other people that I really do look up to because I respect their assertiveness and ability to say what they feel. 🙂 🙂 🙂
