Thats so true Roxie. 'Resistance is the secret of joy'

Do you all watch that show on the Travel Channel about indigenous peoples.

Last week they did one on the Bunlap of Vanuatu. This tribe is famous for land diving (bungee jumping over land).

In one scene they showed a family with three kids who were discussing whether or not to abort an unplanned pregnancy.

The husband told the wife that it was her decision. How progressive is that!

Then he expressed how much he loved his children. Rarely do we see Black men on TV expressing their love for their children.

So refreshing to see Black people who have never questioned their own humanity.
