Hereeeeeeeeeeeeees... Kathy’s Korner!

Mary was having a tough day and had stretched herself out on the couch to do a bit of what she thought to be well-deserved complaining and self- pitying.
She moaned to her mom and brother, "Nobody loves me ... the whole world hates me!"
Her brother, busily occupied playing a game, hardly looked up at her and passed on this encouraging word: "That's not true, Mary. Some people don't even know you."

Greetings Coalition Family!


If you ask this question of anyone who lives under the authority/influence of the european, the answer would be the particular dark people of that region. If you look at the actual, or as close to actual as you will be allowed to get, you will see that dark people are by far the majority. Even groups of people called europeans such as the Greek, Italian, Spanish and French are infused with melanin.

The minority ‘problem’ is so pervasive, that birth control and abortions are made free to those of color, and while more fertility drugs are being developed for the true minorities. They have even influenced dark people to embrace the philosophy of ‘pro-choice’ groups and to echo the chants of “our bodies, ourselves”. All part of the master plan of genocide for the earth’s darker nations.

We are not immigrants; we did not seek entry into this country bringing the flavor and culture of our homeland with us to contribute to the ‘melting pot’. We are descendents of those kidnapped and forced to assimilate into this society, and prohibited to retain any of our original culture. So when you ask “Why don’t Blacks stick together like other immigrants?” The answer: is 400 years of slavery successfully eradicated the glue of commonality that all other immigrants brought with them to this land”. - Madu

Don Ringgold's Health Wealth(sm): The Genesis Project (Article VIII)

 Eating one thing at a time is ideal. The body processes that one thing without the power of that food being diluted. . Combinations should be limited to three different foods at a meal ideally. The stomach two thirds full will bless one with the best digestion. These are literal examples why moderation is the key.

 In regard to breads toasted eliminates the yeast that would produce mucus in the system. Pumpernickel, rye, whole wheat, brown breads with no preservatives, are most nutritious. Unleavened bread is a good choice.

Although not recommended, if one chooses dark beer or ale, they are less mucus producing choices as well.  They are good choices toward transitioning to no alcohol or poisonous consumption. As the transition from non- living, to living foods are experienced, the taste buds change. Food tastes better and the cravings for food and drink that were stimulants begin to dissipate. The eyes, skin, and tongue are barometers for detecting encumbrance in the system. For instance, if the whites of the eyes are yellow, the liver is sending the message for help. A facial eruption, or an eruption somewhere else on the skin, is the warning system of the body. The tongue that is coated is indicating a build up of mucus and poison in the system. It’s wonderful when the individual can listen to his or her body. The more you try, the more you will be able to hear the physician in your heart; the true doctor you can ask about what condition your body is in.

 “The closer you get to God, the closer God will get to you.” As time reveals the truth, an attunement with the inner self will emerge. One will hear what solutions are best. In fact we are already healed. It is our job to increase the resources of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom in order to make harmonious judgments.

 As the waste is loosened by proper diet and herbal application some people are confronted with the pull between the forces of good and evil or love and evil. The question is whom do we belong to? To whom do we belong?  This is where things can become critical. The person may feel tired or sick because the poisons are leaving the system. At this point there’s a real war going on. One force wants to give you life in abundance. The other wants to kill you. It can be a struggle. It is a struggle. We can learn to enjoy the struggle because; in the final analysis we will be in paradise.

More ways to save water.

The silent seeper.

A leaky toilet may go unnoticed, as will the extra cash absorbed by your water bill. To check for leaks, add enough food coloring to your toilet tank to really brighten the water. After 30 minutes look to see if any of the dye has leaked into the bowl.

Every flush counts.

An estimated 30% of household water usage is flushed down the toilet. If your toilet is more than 30 years old, upgrading to a low-consumption toilet can save you up to 4 gallons per flush.

Rain, rain...please stay!”

Use barrels to capture rain from your eaves trough and save it for the next time you have to water your garden or lawn.

Be conservative, cover up.

Keep a cover on your swimming pool when it's not in use. This will decrease water loss due to evaporation by 90%.

Reduce by filling up.

You'll use a lot less water if you only run your laundry or dishwasher with a full load. Running two half loads uses twice as much water.

Stock up.

Use water you've boiled your veggies in to make stocks, soups or, pour it on your garden when it's cooled.

Catch the savings.

If you're running the bath or shower waiting for the water to heat up, put a large bucket under to catch the water. Use this water for plants, pets, cleaning etc.

Washing away your worth.

Get into the habit of turning the tap off when washing your face, brushing your teeth or shaving, and only have it on when necessary. Water running when it's not in direct use is needlessly soaking up your money.

Think before you print

Do you really need a hard copy? Use both sides of the paper if you do and add a 'think before you print' footer to your emails.

See for yourself.

Conduct a household water audit to help identify areas that you can cut water usage. Click here for water audit guidelines.

Switch off to lather.

Half the time we're in the shower is spent avoiding the water while we soap up - so switch off while you lather for big water and energy savings.

Cool it.

Keep some water in the fridge for an instant refreshing ice cold glass of water. No need to run the tap.

United Way seeks applicants for Philly Roots Fellowship

   United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey has released an application to select 15 individuals to participate in the Philly Roots Fellowship.
   The Philly Roots Initiative was developed by United Way and its partners in an attempt to systemically, yet creatively, ensure that young African American men graduate from high school and are college and career ready. The program equips formal and informal adult mentors with the tools they need to assist young men in achieving these goals.
   Eligible applicants include:
   * Individuals (coaches, community members, leaders of groups or small grassroots organizations) that have worked with the same group of at least five young black men in grades 6-12, for at least one year
   * Individuals who can commit to making a strong contribution to this emerging community of practice, and who will make a serious effort to increase the capacity and impact of their mentoring work and the broader Philadelphia community
   * Individuals who have been and will continue to do the work they’ve been doing regardless of whether there is funding or not, or whether they are being compensated to do it, and regardless of where they are employed. Individuals need not be employed or affiliated with a 501(c)(3) organization to apply.
   Preference will be given to those applicants who can demonstrate that they are serving young black men in grades 6-12 at risk of dropping out of school, who attend schools on United Way’s Targeted Schools List.

2013 Bill Gates Scholars Program Giving Away 1,000 Scholarships to

Minority Students

Nationwide ( -- In recognition of Black History Month,

Nationwide Insurance is encouraging consumers to get on line to share, build and capture important family history in celebration of the rich heritage and legacy of the African American family. In addition, consumers can visit to build a personalized music library and support the

United Negro College Fund (UNCF).

Every year, the Gates Millennium Scholars (GMS) Program selects 1,000

talented minority students to receive a good-through-graduation scholarship to use at any college or university of their choice. The program provides scholars with personal and professional development through our leadership programs along with academic support throughout their college career.

Administered by the United Negro College Fund, the program was initially funded by a $1 billion grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Since 1999, it has funded the education of more than 16,000 students, awarding them more than $614 million dollars to pay for tuition, fees, books and housing.

The program aims to reduce financial barriers for African American,

American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian Pacific Islander American and Hispanic American students with high academic and leadership promise who have significant financial need; increase the representation of these target groups in the disciplines of computer science, education, engineering, library science, mathematics, public health and the sciences, where these groups are severely underrepresented; develop a diversified cadre of future leaders for America by facilitating successful completion of bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees; and provide seamless support from undergraduate through doctoral programs, for students selected as Gates Millennium Scholars entering target disciplines

The deadline for submission is January 16, 2013.

Family Survival Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization provides cultural, educational, spiritual and economic tools needed to create a positive and lasting legacy within the African American community. 

Family Survival Inc., a 501(c)3 organization, was founded by Brothers Rashie Abdul Samad and Rashie Abdur Rahim after realizing that the key to reclaiming the African American community lies in re-establishing connection with Africa, it's art, history, culture, economy and people.  The program started with exposing young people to the culture of African music and art, as well as learning the basics of business.  While the founding principles remain intact, the program has expanded by partnering with other community organizations and businesses in the spirit of umoja (unity) to ensure our collective Family Survival. Together, these organizations will make an even greater impact on the youth and elders in the community for the benefit of whole.

On Saturday, January 19th, the Malcolm X Commemoration Committee will host its 17th annual dinner tribute to our political prisoners and their families!
          This highly anticipated and moving event will take place at the Martin Luther King Jr. Labor Center, 1199 Union Headquarters, 310 West 43rd Street, (near 8th Avenue), in Manhattan.
          The event will be from 3-7pm with dinner served promptly at 4pm. Donations for this now time-honored event are $40 in advance and $45 at the door. Proceeds from this gathering go to the commissary of the political prisoners who are represented at the dinner by their families.
          The theme for this year’s dinner is “Transforming Solidarity: Working Together To End Political Imprisonment and Mass Incarceration.”
          “We chose this theme because it’s time to critically look at what we’re doing and how we’re doing it,” Dequi Kioni-Sadiki, co-chair of the Committee and co-chair of WBAI’s ‘Where We Live.’
          “At some point it becomes important to recognize that it is not enough to say ‘I am doing something’; At some point, we have to figure out just what must be done to get results,” she finished emphatically.
          Special guests presenters for this year are Johanna Fernandez, producer of the critically acclaimed film ‘Justice On Trial,’ about Mumia Abu-Jamal, Malik Rhasaan of Occupy The ‘Hood and people’s hip hop artist Jasiri X!
          This year’s dinner comes on the heels of Mumia Abu-Jamal’s death sentence being tossed and on the heels of political prisoners like Jalil Muntaqim being denied parole again. Muntaqim has been in prison since 1973.
          The Malcolm X Commemoration Committee was launched in 1993 with former political prisoner Herman Ferguson serving as chairman. Ferguson, now 91, was also a founding member of the Organization of AfroAmerican Unity with Malcolm X and was with him up until that fateful day February 21, 1965, when Malcolm was tragically assassinated.
          In addition to combating misinformation surrounding the legacy of Malcolm X and multiplying the presence of the community for the very moving annual pilgrimage to Malcolm’s gravesite on his birthday, the Committee also initiated this dinner 17 years ago to bring the community together to build greater support for Black and New Afrikan political prisoners and to instill greater appreciation for their humanity and for what their families have to endure in the face of their wrongful incarceration.
          The Malcolm X Commemoration Committee has always said that Black and New Afrikan political prisoners, who were young men who were directly inspired by Malcolm to join the Black Liberation Movement, make up “the hidden legacy” of Malcolm X. Many were viciously targeted by the government’s COINTELPRO operations of the late 60s early 70s. Those operations assassinated activists, framed activists, fostered violence between activists and the police and even fostered violence between activists themselves. To this date, there are dozens of political prisoners and prisoners of war who are still in prison from frameups dating back to the 60s in most cases!
          For more reservations and more information, please call 718-512-5008. ‘Like’ us on Facebook at X Commemoration Committee...

Q: Are these manufacturer coupons or coupons that I print on my computer?

A: All of our coupons are actual manufacturer coupons. Fewer and fewer retailers accept coupons that are printed from your computer because of a huge increase in counterfeit coupons. Actual manufacturer coupons which we issue are accepted everywhere that coupons are accepted.

Q: Can these coupons be doubled?
A: Yes. These are manufacturer issued coupons and may be doubled in any store that offers double coupons.

Q: What are the face values and the expiration dates of these coupons?
A: Being manufacturer coupons, the manufacturer determines the face values of the coupons. We currently stock coupons ranging in value from 40 cents to 5.00 dollars. The coupon expiration dates are generally valid for 90 days.

Q: How can I use $1,000.00 worth of coupons in 90 days?
A: With our program, you get to choose the coupons you want, when you want them. This way you never have to worry about the coupons expiring.

Q: How do I choose the coupons I want?
A: Each coupon book contains coupon request slips which you fill out and send in. Those coupons are then mailed to you. ----- Coalition members! Activate ‘Your’ web link on The Coalition, Inc. web site -----
