    There have been many times that I have said that the UNITED STATES is a lot smaller than what we think when it comes to being black. I don't think it's 6 degrees of separation....but more like 3 degrees of separation in the black community. I don't care if you live in NY, it's pretty likely that you know someone's business in GA or CA or someone you know knows someone else.

    Have you experienced this? I feel as if every 3 people I know knows someone else I know.

    Yes CarrieMonet, I believe this is the case as well. I experienced this when I was married...turns out a childhood friend's father knew my ex's family, and they weren't even born in this country. Also, there is someone on this site, who I think has family that knows my family or knows of them...Why do I think this? Well, there's this last name that looks familiar, and also their location...I haven't inquired about this as of yet, but I will soon. Thought provoking thread.

    from city to city and if not me my sister when i met my EX
    back in the days i never knew her but knew her uncles when we
    became mates i knew 80% of her family already i do think some
