  • Love this episode. Thank you for continuing to serve the Black community with a broad stroke of coverage.

    I’d like to add that being unapologetic about being Black is important because it instills self-confidence in our future generations and serves as a model for behavior. Presenting our natural hair over processed blonde weaves shows our young goddesses that the coils from their heads spiral in all directions intentionally While other groups appropriate our culture of creativity, they trade us their culture of watered down humility and European styles.

    The segment on women in the military was a bit lackluster. I served in the U.S. Navy during a time where some ships were staffed with 100% men, while others were co-ed. While it seems a noble notion to allow women the freedom to do whatever they want it has its setbacks. There were times when heavy items needed to be moved, and because everyone KNEW they weren’t capable of doing such physically tough work, the responsibilities always fell on the male staff. A deeper look into this phenomena is that the dirty work always fell on the darker skinned men. Therefore, OUR physical duties were far more extensive.

    I thought Roland came off a bit clueless about military activity. Only about 15% of the 1.3 million active duty members know what the true missions are. That means practically none of those enlisted members are aware of the “why” they are there. They blindly follow orders that perpetuates imperialism all over the world.

    My two cents, nope, women (especially Black women) shouldn’t be serving in any roles of the military. The military is full of NAIVE and GULLIBLE people who have been recruited without the knowledge of what they are getting into.

    Are there a few women that are physically capable of diving out of a plane and landing in the middle of FAKE war zone and emerging unscathed with Purple ribbons? Sure. Not many. Women have lower standards for physical training. An example is men of the same age group, will always be required to do more push-ups and run faster than them, because its scientifically proven that men are stronger and faster.

    Roland, Hello, and hope is well with you. I have some information I need to send to you to see if you will release it or not. I need to know where to send this to. It concerns Justice for Chante, a case that really smells of racism. Please contact me for further details. Thank you so much. I have a couple of articles I have already written on disquis that may help you to see what I am speaking about.
