The G8, BBC, and "Scotland's Black History"- Ask BBC for CD and Transcripts

Wow; it's been a busy week up North in Scotland. First G8 protesters all over Princess Street in Edinburgh, then the motley group of European, African and Asian MEN in their meetings over at Gleneagles golfing club. It was so apparent women's presence "was not required." The absence of women was a wasted opportunity, particularly when considering who is going to get the real work done. Matter of fact, I never even saw a Black woman's face at the G8 until the end when 2 journalists were allowed to ask questions at the closing news conference. And - of course - no Diaspora Blacks from, say, Pakistan or Mexico, Haiti or Brazil, or the USA -- or even right there in Edinburgh or LONDON(!).
