    Have you ever heard of second life (sl for short). It is essentially a online game where you can do anything you want. Second life is literally my second life (pun intended lol). If you want to see more you can see these second life articles and blogs

    It seems CNN is obsessed with race in America. This isn't the first race based special Ms. O'Brien has done. When will we get one about being white in America?

      Hi Jane...just wanted to repond to your question...Are Whites not represented within "every" fabic of this country? Even in the documentary itself, I found the presence of White America...This topic of self esteem still exsist in Black America. Please allow us our process of healing in whatever way we can receive it! And I also agree with you...White people should address their issues regarding race and they own the venues to do so. Respectfully Lorraine

    Please check history of man with the bible. Don't listen to or let white people difine you. LEARN TRUE HISTORY. you can do that by lining the Bble' history with man' histroy books who has no dog in the fight.
    what white tell. Just any race they try hide and lie to elevate themsevles and lower the race they feel they are in compition with. Hey I am impressed those little women are SMART.

      Those that are in Egypt now are not true Egyptian. They are Arabs. The Arabs will deny it but man' history and Bible history confirms it! In that region about the 600 Century the Arabs spreaded through the northern part of North Africa,Israel and Jordan. Jordan was also a part of the land Jehovah gave to Israel,The Moabite and the Edomite. Neopolian even came to Egypt expecting to see true Egyptian but admitted that these people here now are Arabs. Egypt started to change around the time just a bit before Cleopatra. Jehovah said he would take take the Egyptian' glory away. Why was that? It was because they were a thorn in his side, so to speak, since 1513 BC through. The Egyptian fought against Jehovah as he protected Israel from 1513 through. He is not protecting them now. They kill his Son;so, the sent the Roman Army in on them and 1 million,100,000 people lost the lives because theY did not listen to Jesus when he said the sign will the encamp Roman Army coming and surronding them. When leave GET OUT AND DO NOT RETURN. Well after about for years no Roman army then came back for the Festible. BAD NEWS AND BAD IDEA!

      Alexandra the great said that he would keep the name of Babylon. He spoke against Jehovah' purpose;therefore he had an unexplained death. Jehovah said he would take name of Babylon away;thus stripping THEM of their glory! He had to die. I will always bleive Jehovah had killed him due to his intention.BAD IDEA! That being said,after his death the four General divided up the spoils of Alexantra the Great as mention in Daniel. Cleopatra was Greek, not an Egyptian. Cleopatra may believe it was of Greek' doing but it was Jehovah forefilling his purpose. What you have there now and all through the Arab' places are mixed with Assyrians who were a world power about time of 7 and 8 Century,Greeks, a world power around the 4th Century; and Romans, a world power around about the 2nd Century. It is more likely that the Somalian are the way the TRUE Egyptian looked like since that was Eypt too. Don't let white people fool you. Check history alone with bible;then you will get the truth. White people have and always will try to define history to fit their own little small WORLD!
      White people want white people to believe that black are stupid; so, they all through history till now do everything to try and make black look bad by trying to redefine;i.e. What Obama has done and will do for for whites and blacks.they try to block and what they can't block they will try to redefine.
      Let me give you another example. White people keep talking about D-day. More people were killed doing the battle of bulge than D-day. To win the world was more important than D-day. They will mention the Bulge but not in detail because they would have to tell the truth. Who won that world for them. They were losing that war during Bulge. I don't think Patton wanted use that black tank unit that won the war for them but that presedent at that time said that' all you have to work with; there are no more fighting unit left,they are all on the battle field. He was force to use them. That black tank unit called the Black Panthers won the war for them,not white people. Even Hittler said if you take the Black tank unit out we will beat you. WHITE PEOPLE LIE ALOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't take my word for it, go LOOK!!! PEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There are stupid theiven white people just like there are STUPID theiven blacks that do the same. No one is better than the other because of his skin color,STUPID!
      I can tell a white person why I am getting money for my PTSD and they feel that they have to lie to do one better!
