    Black Spirituality Religion : Why do you believe in a CREATOR?

    I didn't read the other replies yet so bear with me if I am repetitive: The logical reason is 1) you exist 2) you didn't create yourself 3) the only options in that case are a - you were created or b - by some accident of "science" or "the universe" (or what religious folks call "God" or the...

    Black Poetry : Groundhog Day

    I fell into a deep sleep and drifted off into the land of dreams or should I say the land of nightmares it was scarier than it seemed when it started, it was morning a day that began quite normally I wake up, shower, and dress I get to work things are orderly I go on about my day I...

    Black Poetry : My Pen

    you gave a voice to my heart translating its beats into words with meaning a blank page has power unbounded and for that you are the reason you navigated the rough terrain of my youth revealed raw emotions too pure to be untrue fashioned my soul-drenched tears into a beautiful chalice...

    Black Relationships : Why do some sisters insist on dating

    I guess it's the alure of the "bad boy" image...it's appealing as a fantasy or fling but not as a real, long-term relationship

    Black Relationships : LADIES: A Question - do you view romance in a fairy tale / harlequin novel kinda way?

    Very true. So are you saying that all marriages are doomed fo fail? Since unconditional love doesn't exist and all...it would be impossible for any marriage to last in your world :uhoh: - well only under the perfect conditions I suppose if marriage = love and marriage is (supposed to be)...

    Black Relationships : LADIES: A Question - do you view romance in a fairy tale / harlequin novel kinda way?

    I don't think you're defining unconditional love properly. The way you say it makes it seem like we should have unconditional love for everyone. I view it as once you are in love with a person, you love them regardless....regardless of what goes on in your life or theirs. And just because you...

    Black Relationships : LADIES: A Question - do you view romance in a fairy tale / harlequin novel kinda way?

    Amen to everything you said. My mother went through a divorce and spent time early on telling me my father wasn't ish and gave a general idea that men aren't either and by example, her and all of my divorced aunts taught me to be independent. That said I was young and naive (maybe still am...
