: How about "submitting to my own God: My Assyrian Odyssey"
: For some reason, when you mentioned the idea of writing a book, Malcom X and eldrige Cleaver came to my mind. I wonder Why?
: May be because we are really nothing, but uncle Toms and Niggers.
+++I don't "submit" to anyone...not at least without some sort of compelling reason. I would rather think God speaks through us all, but the wording is ours.
++++We do seem to be inordinantly pleased to suck up to authority figures...white Europeans especially. This shows you how far the mighty can fall if they turn their hopes heavenward and forsake this life.
++++I WISH we could produce people like the two you mentioned, though I have never been comfortable with Cleaver's defense of rape as a ligitimate way to strike back against the white man for all the black woman raped. I would much rather he had raped white men instead. The poetry in Soul On Ice is moving...though the rumors that a woman really wrote the book, or parts of it is intriguing.
Anyway...how about the "Perils of Parhad"?
