Our mistakes like.....allowing ourselves to be stolen from our homeland. Then forcibly raped and tortured, hanged, castrated, lynched and separated from our families, language, and culture. All while working under the worst possible conditions for no wages. Given no access to education or any other himan rights enjoyed by the 'real citizens'. Then mistakenly allowing this injustice to be visited upon us for only 400 plus years. The nerve of us to not then be able to grab our bootsraps and correct these errors after being "set free" with no provisions and told to go out there now people and make your way. Shame on us for not being able to overcome the Klan, Jim Crow, and no access to the voting booth till the sixtys. Yeah, tell us to fix it...............its just that easy........

It appears that a bad batch of "smack" has hit the market. Find the dealers and overdoses will go down.

Still remember seeing the "The Bridge over the River Kwai" there in mid to late sixties. This was the place to watch the latest "Blaxploitation" and Karate flicks. From Pam Grier's "Coffee" series to everything Bruce Lee starred in......Thanks for the memories.....

Please folks, we all know things have gone from bad to worse around here. But don't kill the dream or those that dare to dream. Good things can still happen in Youngstown. Seems that every time someone dares to think out of the box, a do nothing rises from his easy chair to his soapbox and starts taking cheap shots. If you aint rowing gobackensidowna.

Ah the Vega. I fell in love with a canary yellow notch back parked on the front line of a non reputable used car dealer. The year was 1979. I was a senior in high school. This would be my first car. There were at least 3 under dash fires. Numerous late nite tow ins, and countless days in the shop. This car ate through my parents bank account like a black hole on a planet devouring rampage. I installed a moonroof, C.B. and under seat cassette player. When she ran she was a chick magnet. The motor miraculously never ran hot, but the battery died regularly in winter. R.I.P. "Sweet Canary".

All the darker skinned folks everywhere are grateful for the great Europeans, who come bearing disease, murder, and oh yea beads. Can't see how the world could make it without them. Again what was California and Texas before the invasion? Yea the Mexicans are mixed but I don't think they made a phone call to Europe asking to be conquered. These so called savages built great civilizations without any help from George Washington or his cousins. The Incas and Aztecs come to mind...I'm still waiting for an invite to the great west so that I can wait for the sound of the starter pistol and claim all that I can fence. Apartheid in America is alive and well..

Lets see. The so called illegals were here in the Americas before the Mayflower or any other European conquerors even knew they existed. So Spain, England, and France in particular split up the booty and spread it out among their kind. They forced the indigenous peoples off the land or murdered them en masse. Then since they refused to work for free they imported so called Negroes to work the land and build the great empire we now enjoy today. The indigenous people are now told they are illegals in the land that was stolen from them....Hmmm.
