There were times when food was realy hard to get, so every member of the tribe was needed to survive, and only those that committed a worse crime (like murder) were exciled (which ment certain death)

Amongst other tribes the murderer had to take the place of the person he/she murdered.

From this perspective, not paying attention to someone, acting as if this person was invisible, was a severe punishment.

But I do really like the idea. :sunny:

From what "they" tell us: we are all of African descent.

So let us niggas raise hands in praise of the creative mother (and father) and stop believing ANYTHING we ever hear on Facebook.

And make a joyful noise (hopefully somewhat rhythmic - I know: some of us paler Africans have a slight problem with that) unto our cosmic mammy with the big, black comforting titties.


I hope everyone gets my humor.

The thought behind that story is so beautiful, it makes me want to have some hope for us all.

I think some traditional natives have that type of thing happening, perhaps not to such a simplicity...imagine all the shrinks that would loose their jobs..cops...judges..pharms and jailers ...hmmm sounds like its a winner too me..although I was looking forward to the peeing on the rocker club...perhaps I have a ffetish thing happening...better go see a shrink..
