    Beauty - Hair Care - Fashion : Fellow men: Can I ask my barber to not give me an edge up?

    Yeah, just about everyone in my immediate family keeps telling me this. I'll look into it one of these days. I'm sure of that. I was just afraid that it might be an awkward request or something. Thanks for the reply!

    Beauty - Hair Care - Fashion : Fellow men: Can I ask my barber to not give me an edge up?

    Here's the thing, I don't care about my edges. When I get a haircut, I just want the hair to be... well, cut. You know, shortened. I don't need any fancy edges. Besides, sometimes barbers go back to far and I don't like how it looks. I just want the hair cut, that's it. Will I run into any...

    Black People : Is this a race thing, a gender thing, or a parent thing?

    You might be right, then again, there are people with way busier lives than I, who notice similar things. It's not that I expect them to be perfect parents, just have a little common sense is all. I'm kinda getting tired of going the long way around an aisle just to avoid some kid who I...

    Black People : Is this a race thing, a gender thing, or a parent thing?

    In the past I know that my posts are notorious for being a little "out there" and this is mostly going to be another one. Here's the thing, when I'm out shopping and I walk past a white woman (or couple) with kids, I always notice that they call them in closer. I'm not walking inappropriately...

    Black People : How do you ignore or not hate the self-haters?

    That's true. Well, what should I do about it? I know some people say it never bothered them, but there are some people (like me) who it bothered at some point. How does one get over it?

    Black People : How do you ignore or not hate the self-haters?

    I think about younger, more impressionable people (kids, teens, young adults) who might be influenced by someone like that. It can cause them to become like that and it'll cause them to internalize it which will be a bigger problem as they become older.

    Black People : How do you ignore or not hate the self-haters?

    Edit: Thanks for the chat Angela22. Believe it or not, I'm having a sort of similar conversation on another forum about a completely different issue, and everyone is basically telling me the same thing: "Stop worrying about what other people think". I'll try.

    Black People : Should Black people be for multiculturalism?

    I didn't say it was bad. I'm just looking for opinions.

    Black People : Should Black people be for multiculturalism?

    I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic or if I didn't make myself clear the first time. Google multiculturalism and ask yourself if this is something that black people should be for. It's really that simple.

    Black People : Should Black people be for multiculturalism?

    Hi everyone. Here comes another one of my questions about life and blah, blah, blah. Ever since I was a kid I've always liked the thought of multiculturalism. Whenever I had an idea for a movie, tv show or comic book, I always imagined the characters being very diverse. Kinda like how Captain...

    Black People : How do you feel when someone says they hate being black?

    I don't know why but it bothers me a lot. I know I should just ignore it because it's that person's business but it's one of the many things that trigger my depression. Maybe because I feel the same or similar? How do you guys deal with it? Does it bother you or does it bounce off of you?
