Allow Me To Introduce Myself

When Jerel first told me about his weblog, I immediately dismissed it (Sorry Jerel).
After seeing his commitment and passion to "Black Salvage", I decided to rethink my position. After six months of debating, I finally decided to add something new and innovative to his already insightful blog spot.

My name is Quintin Wallace. I currently reside in Annapolis, Maryland. I am a student at Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland; but hopefully by Fall 2007, I will be enrolling at UMBC. politics, women, fashion, and music are a few of my interest. I consider myself a free-thinker who has a lot of ideas that are based around theology, history, and most importantly, politics. Even though Jerel and I are two completely different people; we share two common interest: politics and the state of the black race.

My goals as a writer for "Black Salvage" is to inform, debate, and interest people in not just the future of the black race (even though it is top priority); but to also bring about other areas of discussion ( global politics, and whatever the hell I feel like discussing).

As a political science major, networking and finding others with my political interest is very important to me. If you feel the urge to contribute to "Black Salvage", or you want to discuss a published article, you can leave a comment or contact me or Jerel. Just click on our names under Contributors, our contact info will be displayed. we are also on Facebook as well.

Oh yeah, If I offend anyone in my future Blogs, It probably wasn't in my intentions.

4 Reasons Why BET Is An Embarrassment To Black People

1. BET(Black Entertainment Television) did not air Coretta Scott King’s funeral on it’s station. BET claimed it wanted to offer viewers a different kind of experience by posting a live webcast on it’s website of the funeral where viewers could access it "at work, at home, traveling,[and] at school". Likewise, the four major networks; NBC, ABC, CBS, and FOX all broadcast their own live webcasts on their respective websites. But these stations as well broadcast the funeral on television. C-SPAN and CNN also aired the funeral live.

This reason alone proves that BET is the epitome of trash on television. And not to equate the struggle of blacks with Coretta Scott King, but there would be no BET without her. BET felt that viewers would prefer to watch women shaking their rumps in music videos rather than some funeral for a beloved civil rights leader.
2. BET is not black entertainment television. It does not represent the views and ideals of the millions of Blacks in the United St…

The Light Skin Complex

Anybody who knows me well, or well enough for that matter, knows I was going to write about this at some point...smh...
Why do Dark Skinned Black people hating on Light Skinned Black people? Without Frederick Douglass, we would probably still be slaves. Without Jesse Jackson, helping out MLK jr,, White people would probably ignored him. Without Thurgood Marshall, Clarence Thomas wouldn't be Judge now. Now we got Obama as President... and you know eventually we will have a dark skinned African American President. Bush looked at Colin Powell, made him Secretary of State, then gave Condi Rice a chance. See... Dark Skinned Black people should be grateful that we Light Skinned Black people are making their life easier...Agree?” - Yahoo Answers Poster
I have grown to accept that many African-Americans don't have a genuine desire to learn or embrace their history and heritage. I have become accustom to one's “Blackness” in America being more so defined by their clothes and vernacu…

Black Salvage Blog of the Month: "Fed Up"

I would like to present to Black Salvage readers the first regular segment to appear on the site, "Blog of the Month". The intent of these monthly pieces is quite simple really; to provide awareness of many of the great blogs and sites out there relevant to our focus. [Below is a sample of the type of pictures that appear on this month's "Blog of the Month].


The first "Black Salvage Blog of The Month" recipient is author of the thoughtfully racist web log "Fed Up", which is home to dozens of anti-black writings(here is a link, http://intolerant.wordpress.com). The author, who goes by the pen name "Intolerant" has been writing about his love of hating people of the African diaspora since November of 2005. Stories on the blog range from jokes to serious pieces on the all the supposed ills of black people in the author's opinion.

Before the comments questioning my reasoning for entertaining such a blog come in, let me first ask you t…
