As a child, the story of Adam and Eve always perplexed me.. even to my childlike sensibilities I knew it did not make any logical sense AT ALL.  Countless debates and sometimes fights were had around the dinner table, as I sought to bring logic to my family who had an illogical belief in what seemed to be a completely absurd story (along with santa claus, the easter bunny, the tooth fairy and everything else fantastical) that they based their lives (and the oppression of women) around.

So imagine my vindication when I found this article about a Black man in South Carolina whose DNA is traced back 338 thousand years…

Affonso I was a visionary, a man who saw his country not as a group of separate cultures, but as a united  nation fully equipped with advanced knowledge and technology.
Affonso I was the first ruler to modernize Africa on a grand scale. Because he saw progress as a healthy mix of physical and spiritual development, Affonso made it possible for his people to practice new skills in masonry, carpentry, and agriculture. He also streamlined Kongo politics, established one of the most modern school systems in Africa, and later became the first ruler to resist the slave trade.

After 17 years, I’m leaving Hot 97. I¹m changing my relationship status from “it¹s complicated” to “single”. It¹s been an amazing ride – from intern to

slain officers Collage

(PIX11) — An anonymous businessman from Hong Kong donated $1 million to the families of slain NYPD detectives Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, the New York Daily News reported.

The details of the gift were announced during a new conference at the Detectives Endowment Association headquarters.

“In every tragedy there are individuals who step forward, step up to the plate,” said union president Michael Palladino.

Ramos’ widow held both of her sons’ hands during the announcement, according to the Daily News, while Liu’s father expressed gratitude for the donation.

“He repeatedly, every time I speak to him, reminds us that Officer Liu was his one and only son. One and only child. And so obviously he is very heartbroken,” Rep. Grace Meng (D-Queens) said.

Liu’s father will receive $100,000 each year for five years, while Ramos’ sons will split $500,000 to go to their educational fund, following the donor’s wishes.
