thanks for the invite on this site brother. I am honoured to share, and look forward to share with all your crew the black fellas perspective from Melanesia. Blood from everywhere, including from the oldest continous civilisation on Earth, Aboriginal Australia.
Many thanks for inviting me into the pub. I will have a pint of Heiniken first of all and hope that my acquaintance with jazz musicians who used visit the Cork jazz festivals where I drew pictures of many of them,. associates me favourably for comments in your discussions. I think your site and your reasons and long work that you have done on it are probably one of the most valuable cores of discussion there in USA. regards to you, from jocelyn braddell there on the stony beach we all share in this world! xxx

Dear Friends, This is a little story that shows that friendship is not alone valued for its confidence building but that small measures of aid can give people the impetus for extraordinary outcome.
Early in the history of my magazine The Handstand I received material from a sad and shy young Palestinian in a refugee camp (Deheishe) near Bethlehem. He felt the loss of happy innocent childhood for Palestinian children and he and some other young teenagers started a youthclub for very young children to dance and sing there, make jokes together, feel friendship develop. after 2-3 years they got a computer and started a website and learnt to use the machine hoping to get in touch with the outside world for help and aid for their project. The boy even achieved a visit to supporters in England, although the revelation of other life-styles impressed him he was amazed by the English inability to
communicate with him, or to talk atall, silence on car journeys, during meals etc. seemed incredible to him! This young boy grew up to late teens experiencing every measure of Israeli occupation of his country and he thought to study. He wrote to many many governments to appeal for a student study in medicine - only the Ukraine Government replied to him. He travelled to Ukraine late last year and entered the Campus to learn a new language and to begin that inexorably difficult study of medicine. What money would support him? His father has not been allowed to work by Israel govt. edict for many many Palestinian men and thus his parents can only send him a very small sum. He is lonely, he must try to communicate in Ukraine language and try to eat enough to keep going. I recently received this letter from him which is so affectionate and typical of his strong will that I am sure you, dear friends will take the measure of it for your own community.
thank you very much for sending that great book to me, i have got it, it reached me to my campus, and i showed it to my medical teacher and she said its really really great. and she told me that it will help me a lot, and the next years. i am really grateful for you to send that book to me.

I trust all is well with you and yours. It's been such a long time since our BBS days -- I really miss those days and I'm thankful that you along with some of our fellow sysops have remained in touch over the years.
As you know, The Blacknet was originally driven by a dedicated Computer Bulletin Board System and I am pleased to transition over to the WEB. The Blacknet will continue to focus on locating and encouraging all Black companies and professionals to register their companies on The Blacknet Business Directory. For a limited time all Standard Business listings are free! Just go to http://www.theblacknet.com We have much to offer to please check us out!
I look forward to participating on The Blacklist from time to time, but please note my visits may not be often (I'm having difficulty with time management), but I do read the mailing list of which I am a member.
Thanks so much Kwasi..What a wonderful idea!Have you seen my website: www.see2talk.blogspot.com the technology has huge implications for the African as well as international community as well as those who communicate internationally
Dear Brother, I wanted to ask for your opinion on the relative value (or not) to our community of my new Book. I wanted to you to review the materials contained here www.wlwritersagency.com/DisappearingActs.html If you think it is of some value and worthy of further discussion, then perhaps I could supply more information. Thank you, mike
I will be writting Cynthia McKinney's name in place of Obama, and encouraging everyone in the African American Council to do like wise. Obams is a fake guided by Hitler Jews and white racist. I can't talk for Africans, but I do speak for many African Americans.
