KOLA:
"Can someone like MOONSIGNS look at this Sociolgical Test Pattern and get an idea about what what is systematically done to Blacks via MEDIA IMAGES and especially Black women?"


MOONSIGNS:
Sure I can. And on the flip side of it, I still believe that women (in America) have a choice to embrace or refuse a majority of images--especially intelligent women who "say" they disagree with such things. With a crystal clear understanding that the individuals who control the media aren't going to do much of anything to change this issue, I monitor what I can for my children--the people I'm responsible for. I'm not even going to act like I'm out to save the world nor do I apologize for feeling as such. I expect other mothers/people to take care of their responsiblities--just as I take care of mine. I don't think that's unreasonable. If each person who feels strongly about this issue does their small part, maybe the bigger picture might change.
Best wishes on your quest, Kola.
