Where are the big mouths, Jackson, Al, Baron, too busy making money. I find it interesting that no reparations are asked for.!!!

Great work again by Ben Skinner.

John, That's not true. Emmitt Smith, Maurice Greene and many other blacks support good organizations such as Free The Slaves that work to end slavery worldwide, including black on black slavery and modern day slavery.

It's interesting how horrified we are about human trafficking, as we should be, but we aren't horrified at abortion nor about embryonic stem cell research. Yet all are horrific.
