I Could Care Less

Before I start to vent, I would like to apologize to the readers of BlackSalvage. I have been on an eight month hiatus, but, we are back and stronger than ever. We promise to bring more articles, more often. With the elections 11 months away, I feel that its too early to back a candidate of my choosing; quite frankly, I am not too fond of any of these second rate prospects. So instead of supporting, or denouncing these candidates, I decided to make a list entitled " I Could Care Less". I COULD CARE LESS:

1. That Barack Obama is Black- If you read my article from January 2007, you will understand that there are other reasons for my doubting his presidential capabilities.

2. That Hilary Clinton is a woman- Listen, Hilary Clinton in the White house equals Bill Clinton in the White house; sounds pretty good to me.

3. That Mitt Romney is a Mormon- Actually, scratch that from the list, I do care that Romney is a Mormon, those people are crazy!

4. That Rudy Giuliani has been married three times- Who cares, I mean if Giuliani lives by the "Lays potato chip: cant just eat one" approach; then let him indulge. What you should care about is the fact that his first wife was actually his second cousin. Damn Rudy!

5. About Oprah endorsing Obama- Shes rich and she owns half the planet, but if she cant convince Steadman to marry her, how in the hell can she convince me to vote for an inexperienced candidate.

6. That Iowa and South Carolina are key states for the presidential primaries- Why does it seem like the lamest states are always the most important come election time.

7. About Senator John McCain anymore- You are one of the reasons why we had to deal with Dubya for eight miserable years. You could have easily defeated him in the 2000 Republican Primaries, You were a POW for two years and you have a purple heart!!!, you should have used that to your advantage. Unfortunately, you are too old for this game now, give it up old man.

8. About Dennis Kucinich anymore- Back in my high school days, when I was ultra-liberal, I liked you; now, you are a weirdo to me. How in the hell would you not use military forces under any circumstances. N.Korea, Iran and Al-Qaeda would all find it beneficial to support your presidential campaign.

9. That Al Gore has no intention to run in 2008- Look Fat Albert, I don't care what you say; If I have to stalk you, kidnap you, and force you to run, then I will do it. Lets make a deal, If you run, then its McDonald's on me for the remainder of the presidential race.

10. If I haven't mentioned your name on this list, and you are a candidate, then I could care less that you are running for President.

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…

Revolving Door In Africa: Prevention vs Treatment

I was perusing the Washington Post one Tuesday afternoon-I came upon an article entitled "Best Kept Secret For HIV Free Africa". The article discusses how U.S funding for birth control has been decreased in Africa, and how antiretrovial drugs are the main treatment and initiative for HIV infected Africa. The article continues to emphasize that science and research proves that birth control is more effective, but unfortunately, the U.S Government has decided that antiretrovial drugs will continue to be the focal point in the struggle to help developing nations in Africa. For those who dont know, Antiretrovial drugs are medications for the treatment of HIV. I would like to emphasize the word treatment. Antiretrovial drugs help to slow the HIV virus from entering different cells in the human body. Basically, the person continues to have the virus, it just takes the virus longer to spread through the body. Some may consider it to prolongate sickness and death-But that is just op…
