It must be Bloody Sunday Weekend? If they really cared about Selma. They would appropriate more FEDERAL dollars for the area.

Black farmers' allegations...

QUOTE
Several Black farmers are suing after they say a seed company deliberately sold them bad soybean seed, costing them millions of dollars in revenue.

“They were effectively duped,” said Thomas Burrell, president of the Black Farmers and Agriculturists Association.

According to WREG Memphis, the association filed a class action lawsuit accusing the Stine Seed Company of selling them fake seed at the Mid-South Farm and Gin Show in March of last year. The farmers said they believe the scheme was racially-motivated and an attempt to push African-American farmers out of the industry.

The farmers said they knew something was wrong when their crop was one-tenth of the yield of their white neighbors, who are also farmers. The yields were so stark that it nearly put some Black farmers out of business.

“Mother nature doesn’t discriminate,” Burrell told WMC Action News 5. “It doesn’t rain on white farms but not black farms. Insects don’t [only] attack Black farmers’ land…why is it then that white farmers are buying Stine seed and their yield is 60, 70, 80 or 100 bushels of soybeans and Black farmers, who are using the exact same equipment with the exact same land, all of a sudden, your seeds are coming up 5, 6, and 7 bushels?”

We'll see what the investigation reveals...

But, who is too blame? Instead, of trusting the same people that blocked you from getting USDA loans. You should probably partner with a local HBCU that specializes in Agricultural  to make your own seeds. But, hey, it's just my $0.02 cents.

87 Alum, not like what it had turned in to in the past. Its just concerts now. Think FESTIVAL without the cars clogging up traffic and fast-tail-heffas dancing on cars being attacked by horny fools.    ;D

Mobile Police Chief Lawrence Battiste said Orr made public threats against the two victims and tried to obtain a gun on Sunday. According to Battiste, an altercation ensued at the beginning of the parade route where Orr fatally shot the male victim in the street and the female victim while she was on a float. 

When you are dealing with somebody ex-wife/girlfriend. You better be carrying something with you at all times.  :brickwall:

We have some rich black people. But, we are far off from wealthy.

If I was a Democratic candidate. I would be trying to engage younger voter, and visiting smaller states.
I thought that's what Bernie was doing?
Must you repeat everything you hear on tv before thinking it through?


I'm not repeating anything. I'm just pointing out the obvious.

Elizabeth Warren came to Selma.

Michael Bloomberg came to Alabama State and bought off some members of Alabama Democratic Coalition.

  But, otherwise, they both showed me that they don't know jack s**t about black people in this state.

The only person to come and visited the entire on his free time was Senator Corey Booker.
