Stoll, associate professor o 'r at of California, Los Angeles, issued a report commissioned' by the Congressional Black Caucus citing how Black men who had only a hig h diploma or less, had less than a 50o/o chance of being employed. . / 1 But the skin tone study was unsettling to say the least. It showed that "dark-, skinned Blacks face a distinct disadvantage when applying for -jobs, even if they have resumes superior to lighter-skinned Black applicants." Harrison indicated that the finding was due to the belief that fair-skinned Black people have more .with whites than dark-skinned Blacks, which in turn makes whites feel more comfortable around them. Moreover, Harrison's comments about the m edia's depiction of dark-skinned Black men as violent or threatening, reminds us of an earlier editorial. We wrote about a teacher's obser-Va:iice that dat"k-skinned childi-en appear to receive more discipline than their lighter-skiliJ;led classmates. .. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that dark-skinned Black men with a high school diploma or less have three strikes against them. But we now have empirical proof as a basis to attack the 'no longer mythical proble m of skin tone. Think about it. Pass it on!

The insider also said that Beyonce's dancers were too afraid to approach anyone in charge about the plane tickets, believing they'd miss out on the opportunity. "They were told that they couldn't call their agents and that if they didn't agree, they would not be hired," according to the source.

MICHAEL NEWMAN "The program is pretty rigor ous, but the benefits are great as well. Most of the people.in the program are white, and I'm sure that some-of the qther African-American students could do the same things I'm doing if they applied themselves a little more," said Newman. Outside of school, Newman is a member of the Gulf Coast Youth Choir. The group has traveled and performed throughout the nation, and be traveling to Asia this summer. Newman and the Gulf Coast Boychoir were invited to perform in Beijing and Tianjin, China. I am ecstatic to be going over seas. Seeing China is an oppor tunity many people don't expe. rience.

But sometimes Judges or Courts will try to limit the type of circumstantial evidence that an employee can present to prove discriminatory intent or motive. Don't let them get away with it. In Patterso' n v Mclean (Supreme Court 1989), Patterson,-an African American woman was laid off after 10 years of employment. A simi larly-situated white female employee was not laid {)ff but received a promotion . The lower court ruled_ that Patterson could not present evidence that she was in fact more qualified than the white employee .. The Supreme Court, howev er, overturned the lower court. The Court clearly established that a plaintiff may present all sorts of evidence prove discriminatory motive or intent: previous bad t reatment, poli cies or procedures, qualifications and resumes, witness statements or a ffidavits, etc. MOTHER GRIFFIN Offers Special Prayer Don't be discouraged if others have failed.

Yet the questions arise: How have loving relationships changed? Are the changes positive or negative? Some local ministers agree that today's marriages and relationships differ from those in the past. Some differences are positive, .but others are not. "The one major difference I see in relationships is that there is no longevity these days. People cut ties and run over the most minor things," said Elder Michelle Patty, assistant minister at St. Mark's Missionary Baptist Church. "Married couples ELDER MICHELLE PATTY MINISTER BILLY DAWKINS "My parents are older, and I' think certain duties were designated for them. The man was the provider, and the woman was taking"care of the home," said Clayton. "Both me and my wife take a hand in the finances, p,nd things that need to be done in the home. I believe that's probably the biggest difference between marriages of the past and the present." Minister Billy Dawkins, an associ ate minister at Peace Progressive M.B. Church, has. been married to his wife Joyce for 3!Jyears.

Valentine's Day is a day when c ouples share affectionate gifts and reflect on their relationships. It's also a time to be thankful that your loved one is with you. A few women were asked how they coped with their: husbands not being around on Valentine's Day. Queen Miller: (Floyd Miller) "I was young at the time and he was involved in World War II. I recall going to work as usual, but I really missed him being around. He was g one for 2 years, but we stayed in touch with each other through the mail. "We wrote how much we misse d each other, and when he returned, we had to immediately find a place to live. The V.A. h e lp e d us build our first home, and that's where I'm l iving today." Candy Lowe: "I want every on e to know that si n g l e women have problems as w e ll It's a lonely time of the year when you don't have someone. You don't know if you'll get a card or any recognition. Even if you have s om e one special in your life, you just don't know. "Throughout the years, my thing is not . CANDYLOWE GUSSIE LIVINGSTON knowing what the man is going to do. I hear a lot of talk about Valentine's Day, and when you're not with someone, it means nothing. That's not good and it's not a happy; time." Stephanie Brown-Gilmore:" "I always thought this was a special day of renewal to their promise will always be there. Whether or not, there will :be things that' pull you apart. It all goes to the. strength of the marriage and. helps cope absence of their spouse. "Thi s Valentine's Day, I'll be the one who will not be home. This will b e our first one apart, He a lways bestows a lot of gifts ori m e. I don't know what to expect so I'll try to deal with it the best I can." Gussie Livingston: "My husband was in the service. Because we were secure in our relationship, w e w ere strong. We put too much emphasis on being together for that day.
