    This is one reaon I stopped buying and reading Essence long ago!

  2. When we see our world in the tiny form of what we have here in the U.S., we miss the bigger picture of where we were supposed to be, and what our lives would be like if we were there. All of our ancestors came from different parts of Africa. We consider ourselves one people because we have a color-code that links us together. We know that mankind started from Africa according to scientific study, but our thinking processes have been corrupted by the European version of ‘God’ beliefs and the book they have imposed on us as a truthful object. Here we are an fractured people, made more insane by centuries of contradictions and assimilation into a populous that not only disrespects us, but hates us eternally.

    The insanity of this is that we are made to believe that we are in a safe and warm place where everything is as the European’s “God” wants it to be! How insane is that?

    Now as for Essence magazine, a magazine with plenty of advertising from many of the sources and corporations that are white in it. It behooves this magazine to use whatever it needs to stay in circulation and prosperity for its owners. As for the insanity of “blacks”, this magazine with its ads and interesting articles may influence some of our beautiful ‘black’ women in one way or another, but is this kosher? Will there every be a psychiatrist picking apart everything between the pages to find what damage it might be contributing to an already distorted yet unknowing mindset? Most likely not!

    There may be important information for women in a rag-mag that usually sports tons of Anglo products and ads, but that is only one of the problems that corrupts the community of ‘black’ women. Another problem is that they don’t realize nor understand the if, how, and why it’s done!

    I would like to recommend that all black people read the book ‘An Unbroken Agony’, by Randall Robinson. I recommend it as must reading. Once you have read this book, you can apply the ramifications you find in it to our predicament here in the U.S.. You must not stop there, you must continue to watch (in horror), as the Anglo-Elite systematically destroy the Haitian people. They do this without our knowledge nor the knowledge of the ‘white’ or general public of this country. They also covertly use these same tactics here on us, and dare I say it, on the general public! Now, the ladies can argue over who owns and operates a magazine and whether its a worthwhile rag or not! But not until you increase your world view and not until you try to understand what the Africans of this diaspora are up against!

    Lastly the ignorance of our population as a whole extends from those whites who feel privileged to be so, to the darkest of blacks who never knew what hit them and still cannot comprehend that they are still being pummeled in numerous ways, from numerous angles. An not just by the insane whites whom, know or don’t know, but from those of us who have been thoroughly assimilated by this insane white supremacist society.

    IT’S SAD IN AMERICA THAT AS BLACK AMERICAN WE ARE LOSING WHAT WE ONCE OWE OR HAD. I HAVE THE FRIST “ESSENCE” THAT CAME OUT AND I’M 60’S YEAR OLD AND I TELL YOU IT JUST SAD THAT WE DON’T HAVE A DAM THING OF OUR OWE. THE MASTER PLAY HIS RIGHT AGAIN AND WE FAIL TO PREPARE OUR SELF ONCE AGAIN IN HISTORY TO SEE NOTHING HAS REALLY CHANGE. IF ONLY WE WOULD READ AND COMMUNICATE & TRUST GOD THEN MAYBE THE CATARACT REMOVE FROM THE EYES & SHACKLE REMOVE FROM THE MIND WE MAY JUST IT GET.
