This morning, as I sat to watch a PBS “documentary” about Africa’s great civilizations, I got a whiplash from shaking my head, within a few minutes. Why are people who know absolutely nothing about African history, so hell bent on telling the history of Alkebulan? And why is Henry Louis Gates, surrounded by cunning Europeans, willing to prostitute his half baked ancestry? When anyone states that the queen of Sheba met king Solomon, among other fallacies, it’s a sure sign s/he is a liar. Then I was reminded of the real purpose for the show: $20 to $240 donations to support the program.

I was educated in Catholic schools and spent 6 years at the Petit Seminaire College Saint-Martial, a Jesuit seminary in Port-au-Prince. I am a twice Ordained minister from the Open Ministry Church, and the Universal Life Church The Monastery. I am not religious or an atheist, I enjoy spirituality. Religion, politics and gardening (not necessarily in that order) are my favorite subjects of conversation. Other areas of interest include: Human diversity, criminal and constitutional law (graduated from the police academy CCJST), Africa, ancient history, slavery, automotive technology and research at the GM training Center (Tech I and III), Chrysler Technical Training (BE and T-121).
