Black Americans=More than Civil Rights Icons

More than often I have to remind people that not only can I dance, sing and play sports but I can also recite every element on the Atomic Chart as well as thier weight and atomic number.

Tragically in our nation Black Americans have very limited optics part of our negative image is the failure of Black folks to tell the narrative of our unlimited diverse talents and skills. The other truth is that many people in our nation enbrace the fiction and disinformation about us as just being athletes, entertainers and of late criminals.

Black Americans are much more that the world's greatest civil rights icons..We are much more than legendary singers and sports stars..Our narrative is endless and still unfolding....

To be continued.......

Brother PI...excuse the (PI)..did not know your name. God topic. I read your personels and saw that the typicals of sport was not dominent. I am in medicine and that periodic chart is a challenge just to pronounce the elements. Will be stopping periodically. Brother Al and Brother Jesse Jackson was good for their times. Being from their time (59 y.o.) they have been on the stage far too long. There was two decades whereby there was no runner to carry the race baton after America had annointed those Brothers as "the one". Race battles are a young man's task.

I agree in part with you about race battles are for young warriors yet memories belong to all of us...
