Forgive me for dragging this out, but I rarely get this mental stimulation anymore. Every pet dog on the planet evolved from the wolf. And yet there are still wolves around. If we hadn`t taken steps to conserve wolves apes, whales, polar bears, tigers, elephants, pandas, eagles and other animals, they would have followed dinosaurs into extinction thousands of years ago. That`s the only reason they are still around. One thing I learned about evolution, it`s a slow process. The earth was formed over 4 and a half billion years ago. Man, as we know him, has only been on earth for 200,000 years. We are still evolving. Love ya, knight
I don`t knock what anybody believes, but I believe in evolution. I think we all evolved from apes. We have different skin color and characteristics based on how close to the equator we were located, among other things. I also have no doubt that some blacks may have some Indian blood. But more often than not, it`s white blood. I just don`t see blacks and Indians hooking up during slavery time. But I`ll be he first to admit I don`t know anything for sure, I just have opinions., and as you can tell, I love to express them. lol And by the way, you are a beautiful woman, no matter what you are mixed with. :) Take care.
Edie, I think you are right. This ancestry stuff is not worth the money unless you have been told "you got a little Indian in you". I accept that I am the descendant of slaves, and am proud of it. Not many races could have endured what we have and are still standing tall. And I still love that slave food called 'chitterlins". But now I eat it because I want to, not because I have to. Pass the hot sauce please, it`s that time of year. I am all about tradition. These young folks don`t know what they missing. lol
Just dropping by to say Hello to my old friend. I hope life has been treating you well. I was being nosey , but I read some remarks about Ancestry.com. My skin is black as night and there is no doubt where I come from, but since the costs of doing a DNA study has come down to $59, I am considering getting mine. And every black person that claims to be part Indian should get one too. Ok, I was just being funny. You take care, Knight
Hey Mama Edie!. Hey I wanted to ask you about your experience with Ancestry.com. Im wondering if I should go ahead and give it a whirl. Im been trying like hell to research my family tree and gain access to documents and I have no idea where to start. My uncle has provided me names and dates of relatives on my grandmothers side going back as far as my great great grandmother but thats where it stops. The more I research the issue of the slave trade and what went on in that era the more I question how true it was. I dont believe we all came from slave ancestry like we've been led to believe all of these years. Plus, its now come out that history has been taught to us in reverse and that alot of Blacks in America may be indiginous to this continent. The reason I bring this up because I was told by my uncle that my great great grandparents were not slaves. They were free and possibly dark skinned Native Americans. But I wont know that until I gain access to the documents. How reliable was Ancestry to you?
Yes Edie, we sure had some good times up in here. Memories that I will keep forever. I`m surprised and glad that you keep the place open. Reminds me of how mom used to keep the porch light on for us kids that got home a little late. Seeing that light let us know that we were home and safe. :) And yes, I happened to see Chick`s name and remember her from back in the day. It sure would be nice if we had a reunion up in here. lol I know I`m planning on stopping by more often. You take care and thanks for leaving the light on.
I loved the movie. I would like to go see it again, this time in 3D. Sad its getting so much hate tho smh. Them Hotep fools need to calm down instead of trying to ruin it for the kids. I dont see how it was a disrespect to the Black Panthers. Yeah it ties into Oakland,Ca but that is because its Ryan Cooglers hometown,
