It doesn't matter if you're an Obama fan or not--if you plan on ever voting again in your life you need to take the time to read this food-for-thought article. Obama asked us all the question--if we can't trust government, who can we trust. Well, we obviously cannot trust government so...?
History has left women bereft of a true sense of place in many cases. None are as undervalued in the United States today as women of African descent. There are, however, many truly talented, intelligent, and courageous black women who should be remembered and celebrated for their achievements.

History and pop culture can be at odds many times with respect to an event or a certain historic figure. The name "Bligh" conjures up images of an abusive, megalomaniac British naval captain of the "Mutiny on the Bounty" infamy. However, it was not Bligh, the commanding officer of "HMS Bounty", who was the wrongdoer in the events leading to the well-known mutiny.

By 1950, Reg Christie had gotten away with killing at least four people and was responsible for the conviction and execution of his upstairs neighbor, Tim Evans, for a murder Tim had not committed.
