Queen of the Universe, Mother of the World...

There's an interesting conversation brewing here, all over a book about why black men like white women. Very interesting and insightful commentaries, many poetic and full of wisdom. One of my favorite lines: "like when they took sweet Jesus, we were the Mary, weeping at the base of the cross." Although the topic of the original story itself may not be esoteric in nature, the developing conversations take it into that realm a bit, and it's interesting reading for anyone interested in black/white and/or gender topics and studies. It's obviously a very emotional and even spiritual topic for many, as it has to do with deep issues of identity.

It's Marian Synchronicity! I was just going to put up my link to my recent item at UFO Digest, and it's entitled:

The Mystical Contactee Encounters of Dana Howard: Parallels to Marian Apparitions?

How about that?!

...and if you're going to be synchronicitous, it may as well be about Miss Mary! Funny.

And I should note too, that the title here "Queen of the Universe..." actually refers to black women, and is often used in conjunction with the factoid and/or legend that black women are the only women that harbor all genetic material for all the races on the planet. In attempting to find out if this is truth or fallacy, I came across the item of this post. I never did find any information, so if anyone knows and has a citeable source, please let me know.
