    I got so tired of hearing whites say how well Obama spoke/ speak. it's like we are an intelligent race... I've even been told I articulate myself well, from whites, and from blacks, I've been told i sound white...go figure...:11200:

    Peace!

    Uh, Enki. I was thinking of "colors" we might use when, say for instance, trying to talk a friend into dating another friend. I don't think you would make a 'favorable' impression on your friend if:

    Friend: What's she look like?
    Enki: Little black Sambo.

    I've always wondered why folks, mainly whites say they don't see color? Is it to say they are not racist, and that they like black people? At least that is the feeling I get. I think I even heard Oprah say it a few times which sounded stupid. I sure when you worded in corp. America, one or two whites said something silly to you thinking that it would break the ice, or show you they understood you.

    I know i have... I had a few whites address me using slang while asking for a pound....SMH

    And I just stared at them like i didn't get it...:lol:

    I personally thinks blacks that are intelligent, and do jobs they do intimidate them, and they don't know how to approach us.

    Peace!

    they say it cuz theyve seen color - i mean sayin it just dont make any logical sense unless your lieing and you see it - so they definitely see color - they just want all the other Yt folk around to believe there all liberal and beyond the whole racist thing - then they come straight at you with some dumb comment like.... ohhhhh you went to college? with that suprised tone
