    Black Relationships : Interracial Dating Threads

    You are pure entertainment. For people who do not "care", you sure spend a lot of time obsessing and professing trying to protect the legacy of people who you deem "Naïve and didn't know any better". I rarely if ever engage in things I don't care about. You will never see me engaged in a...

    Black Relationships : Interracial Dating Threads

    You act as if someone needs to justify their freedom of choice. According to you, "Malcom was naïve and didn't know better" LOL, I guess you are the king of Black people and judge of us all. Tell me great judge, how is it a "selfish desire" to exercise one's freedom of choice when it has no...

    Black Relationships : Interracial Dating Threads

    It's up to the folks that choose to share how much it bothers them when grown folks go about their lives exercising their freedom of choice. 'Cause I don't mind telling someone just how humorous I find their displeasure in another adult not living his or her life in a manner that's pleasing to...

    Black Relationships : Interracial Dating Threads

    Who said I took it personally? I just told you how funny it is when folks like you are bothered by what grown folks do that has nothing to do with you.

    Black Relationships : Interracial Dating Threads

    I find it comical that you become nauseous over trying to impose your own selfish hang-ups upon another grown-up. LOL If a grown man or woman chooses to fulfill their desires, it's seriously none of your business if fulfilling their desires clashes with your desires. Get over yourself and your...

    Black People : Stephen A. Smith puts "the black community" in it's place.

    That's exactly what I'm saying. How that got morphed into a "high horse" or "a burning desire to conclude there is something wrong with Black people" is beyond logic.

    Black People : Stephen A. Smith puts "the black community" in it's place.

    Your fire burns to twist everything I say into something it isn't. The fact that you think that conversations between us concerning the issues we face are of no consequence demonstrates a lack of basic problem solving skills. You are right, however that they become nothing more than...

    I know how to disagree constructively. Smith and Dyson know how to disagree constructively. So what is it with this far fetched assumption that I would make such a generalization which would obviously include myself, Dyson, and Smith? I would, however, say that far too many of our people...

    Black People : Stephen A. Smith puts "the black community" in it's place.

    I think you missed my point and Smith's. The beginning of his response was simply answering a question that was asked of him concerning what he faced from our people as a result of expressing his opinion. My point is that simply injecting the name calling into the equation alienates potential...

    My point is that it is counter productive for him to have to spend time defending himself against distractive attacks when that time could be used to hold the more mature conversation and develop solutions.

    Black People : Stephen A. Smith puts "the black community" in it's place.

    Being constructive is simply not alienating our people with name calling and immature attacks rather than addressing them with logic and reason. Being constructive doesn't mean to not hold the discussion, but to hold the discussion in a manner that doesn't alienate and is considerate of the...

    Black People : Stephen A. Smith puts "the black community" in it's place.

    Do you not understand the difference between "Why can't we disagree in a constructive manner?" and "Why do some people express their disagreement in a way you consider disrespectful?" There is a distinct difference between what I asked and what you have twisted my question into. If you...

    Black People : Stephen A. Smith puts "the black community" in it's place.

    There is a constructive way and a destructive way to disagree. Dyson and Smith show an example of constructive disagreement. Voicing a name calling strategy is counter-productive, destructive, and demonstrates an inability to articulate a point. I don't stand up in the middle of a divisive...

    Black People : Stephen A. Smith puts "the black community" in it's place.

    What is "misplaced trues"? The context of our reality is that we live under a condition that certain attitudes we hold and certain attitudes held against us can be justified if looked at within a smaller context. The larger context then becomes that no one is willing to discard their attitude...

    Black People : Stephen A. Smith puts "the black community" in it's place.

    I'm not referring to this thread although the only thing that have kept it from going there within this thread is the rules and enforcers of this site. As Steven A. Smith said, he was said not to be one of us, that he wasn't Black, etc., etc., etc. an all out, full court press on the man just...
