      Greetings family,

      The holidays are quickly approaching and all the industry reports are
      pointing to an up year in online sales and purchases. Last year =
      the Monday after Thanksgiving, as officially the Internet's best online
      shopping day of the year...Cyber Monday! Web shoppers are expected to =
      holiday spending online to $18 billion this year, a
      25 percent increase from 2004, according to Forrester Research.

      Unfortunately, Black websites have not experienced similar e-commerce
      activity. It seems the only way an ethnic site can exist (or should I
      profit), is if its owned by corporate America (think white man).
      You would think with all the emphasis this year on the growth of Blacks
      minorities online, that things would be different. So this year, =
      instead of
      your traditional "Best Of" holiday shopping list, I'm encouraging all
      you, to purchase at least one item from my "Best Black Shopping Sites"

      We as an online community must support our own. I've said this a =
      times, if I've said it once; If you claim to support Black Business; If
      want to see more Black products and services; If you want to see your =
      reach social and economic parity on the Net .... Then Purchase
      from, Subscribe to, Volunteer or Visit a Black online website. WE NEED
      SUPPORT NOW!!! Between Christmas, Kwanza, and the customary office =
      you will be spending money anyway...why not spend it at websites that =
      enriching your life, all year long.

      We (meaning Black America) are the creators of pop culture. We start =
      trends and America follows. For example, look at the music, fashion, or
      automotive industry (even corporate executives are bouncing on Doves =
      rims) that don't stop spinning). With the advent of the Internet and
      acceptance of it, as a valid distribution channel for digital products,
      no longer have any excuses. I used to say, that the powers-that-be =
      let me put my screen saver products on the shelves of the mass =
      (Sears, Circuit City, etc.) but that excuse is no longer valid. =20

      There are 18.4 million Blacks online (according to and
      if =
      only agreed to purchase one Black product online during this holiday =
      we could change the face of the Black community. Think about it! ...
      million people spending an average of $20 in a targeted time period. =
      would this say to corporate advertisers?=20
      How many new jobs would be created in our communities? Think about the
      products and services this type of community self-empowerment would
      generate, not only online but in neighborhoods all across this country.

      Corporate America has always taken the Black dollar for granted. For
      example; There are more Blacks online than there are Hispanics, and =
      spend more money online then Hispanics. But according to a survey =
      by the American Advertising Federation, advertising executives said
      marketing to Hispanics is a more important goal, than marketing to =
      Americans. If that wasn't bad enough, studies also indicate that we as
      people, are our own worst enemy! Blacks would rather buy at a
      mainstream =
      site then shop at Black web sites.
      Twice as many Blacks say they primarily use mainstream web sites than
      ethnic sites, according to research on ethnic media by Bendixen &
      Associates...The White Mans Ice Is Always Colder! Why can't we use this
      electronic distribution vehicle called the Internet, to generate new =
      of revenue, new markets, and new opportunities for Black America???=20

      below are some examples of the jewels of knowledge, opportunities, =
      and products that can be found in this treasure-trove of information, =
      the Black online Diaspora. I strongly recommend you support the
      organizations and people below. All of them have given more to our =
      community in time, and energy, then money can ever repay. Delores =
      of AfriCreations is famous for positive news and service to the Black =
      community. Lee Green founder of the NBBTA, is an inspiration to =
      Drummers" all over the world. He truly embodies the saying; Share The
      Knowledge, Share The Dollars.
      Roger Madison, creator of iZania, is a living example of the spirit of
      Ubuntu... I am because you are! I can not say enough about Yvette Moyo
      MOBE. She has generated millions of dollars for Black business.
      Her promotion is quickly becoming a new national Black
      family holiday.

      Please forward this messages to your network of online friends and =
      them to participate in this unique Black online shopping campaign to =
      Black dollars, and empower our Black online community. Thank you for =
      support in building our local online community. We Must Share The =
      To Share The Dollars.

      Peace & Gods Blessings,

      Just wanted to add to the list:

      This is an excellent list.

      Pyrrhic Victory (New songs are up!):

      Some people take themselves WAY TOO SERIOUSLY, when in actuality, no one else is really taking them as seriously as they think.
