and what's that website that tells you where the alumni of various law schools are working?   can't find it

by the way, blk_reign you look radiant.

Speaking of standard of beauty, I once read that skin-lightening cream was one of the best selling products in Kenya.  When I went to Ghana a couple years ago I saw a few billboards for those products there too. It really irritated me to see that because the women there have such smooth dark complexions.

Dem a bleach

A lot of Black women don't know how to do their natural hair.  It was only after I started researching natural hair that I even heard of comb coils, twists, etc.

There could also be professional concerns.  Esp. down South, Black people really aren't doing the "professional/natural" thing.  I am encouraged that more and more high-level workplaces are seeing more women with braids, locs, kinks, and even short naturals.  As my mom said, "You know, we just aren't used to that! We've been taught that people with dreads are dirty." >:( :'(

That's how it was in Jamaica when the Rasta faith was born and certain people started locking their hair. The Black masses who have been brainwashed by the establishment began calling their fellow African dirty for being proud to wear their hair the way Jah intended.

because white people are the best thing that ever happened to black folk

Actually Black folk are the best thing to ever happen to White people...but I'm gonna assume you are being facetious.

In reference to Black women and permed hair, that's something I've had a problem with ever since I realized that God gave us our unique type of hair and it is beautiful just the way it is. It appears that the permed hairstyle has become so prevalent on the modern Black woman that when you see her modeling a more natural look it's considered to be exotic, daring, or neglectful.  WTF???

I've been away from my cpu for a while...Thanks for the well wishes everybody.

To answer those questions...yes I would probably still go even if they don't offer me any money (but I don't think I'll be put in that situation)

No, unfortunately I won't be at the open house next week. I just started a new job and can't get time off yet. I wish I could go but I'll just have to visit some other time.

Besides, after BlueSweater's lengthy description of his visit, I think I know enough about the Howard campus well enough for now 8)

have you tried googling for the words?  that might work

pet peeve of the day:  White women that come up to me at the gas station while I'm pumping my gas and say, "hey excuse me, do you know where I can get some dope?"

HUSL has just admitted me to the program (I Give Jah Thanks). Anybody else been accepted but is still waiting on their financial aid package? Did you call the FinAid office and was given a time frame for when your offer would be made?

Does it mean anything if they didn't include a scholarship offer with your acceptance letter?
