This brilliant film made me sad. How can a person so healthy and so...so beautiful, be made to feel that something is wrong with her? Social, psychological, institutional, emotional and ideological forces still tend to operate on the hearts and minds of all of the people who were interviewed in the film. It was painful to watch. Can we stop this type of systemic hurt?  I teach courses on race relations and so many students will argue that race no longer matters. This film demonstrates that even if a person attempts to ignore racial categories, people help such individuals feel race categories in meaningful ways.

Tonya. I love the way you have developed an expertise and put it out there to share your understandings with people.

On this video, I would like to say, I don't think this is the guy for you. He is too nonchalant. The emotions that you are pouring onto this person could be better left reserved for someone who initiates and reciprocates. It's possible to end up spent and jaded later.

This particular clip from the award winning TV series Roots, demonstrates an important distinction related to how American domestic slaves had been socialized to accept their situatedness, whereas recent captives were still cognizant of their human rights.

Let's review this case study in class this summer. It arguably serves as data in support of the hypothesis that race categories still tend to matter.

Time to get good at things depends on many factors, in addition to time. Natural gifts, translatable habits, interest, access to resource(s), level and type of help, discipline, creativity levels and the type of skill (breastfeeding, intricate dance moves, spacecraft trajectory optimization,  trigonometry, gymnastics, brain surgery, cooking soul food, football, race car driving, driving, highway driving, university teaching (each subject may require different personalities, abilities, time to acclimate, etc.). Some people can spend 100,000 hours and still not achieve a level of mastery that others may reach with 5 or 10 hours.

What a wonderful father and aunt. However, I don't agree with the title link to this film, as being proof to disprove that "Black Women Claim They Cant find a GOOD black man..." since the story does not involve loving a Black women.

Story
Tagline
Visualizing a world where every person can make a name for themselves contributing to outer space development
Introduction

I've always wanted to be a professor, international scholar and author. I waited until late in life to pursue these dreams. Now I teach for 3 universities - Webster University Worldwide, Washington University and Northern Arizona University. I'm currently traveling around telling people about outer space development (Washington, DC, Beijing, Houston, St. Louis, Little Rock, Los Angles, Toronto, Montreal, Quebec...)

Link to Cambridge Scholars Publishing:

I've been blending insights from critical theory and the critique of colonization and development scenarios with an eye towards contributing to future global equality. I believe that outer space will soon be development and everyone can play a role in the new opportunities arising with the newer intelligent space telescopes locating exoplanets and new star systems, asteroid mining operations, humankind will soon enter a true space age. Newly constructed spaceports, advanced stages of space travel (private spaceships and starships) space mining, space law and space habitation architecture are all indicators that a SciFi reality is soon to come.

So far, libraries and universities in Armenia, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, Australia, China,  Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia,  New Zealand,  Virgin Islands, British, Thailand, India,  Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Israel, South Africa, Namibia, Turkey, Cyprus, Egypt, Greece, Russia, Italy, Slovenia, Serbia, Finland, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia, Sweden, Spain, Denmark, Netherlands, Norway, United Kingdom, Scotland, Guyana, Ireland, Canada and Mexico have obtained copies of the book. Libraries and universities in a wide variety of states in the US have also obtained a copy of this important book. http://www.worldcat.org/title/outer-space-development-international-relations-and-space-law-a-method-for-elucidating-seeds/oclc/830167722&referer=brief_results
