I wonder when time runs out for former players to sue.

There are so many that could use reparations for all the head injuries received while doing their jobs on these NFL teams. I'm very pleased that schools are looking at the equipment being used in our school system and seem to be making sure that they're looking out for the athletes in the sports program.

You know, its sad when people today are still trying to get ahead off the backs of some of the stars of old. Was it an Agent who might have thought he had clearance to sue? Or maybe the league got to Gale and asked that he back off for a payoff......just a thought.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
