    Giving the ever growing levels of obesity etc. in our midst:

    While we aren't even displaced people in some refugee camp?

    It's as though we're today's contented house kneegrows in search of some abandoned white massa's plantation...

    How come homefolks?

    You tell me!

    A few of us here need to and others want us to quit making overgeneralizations about our or other folks generations!
    :10500:


    Sisters have started to eat more and exercise less due to the present extended levels of stress and depression,

    from having to live in a mysogenistic and racist society,
    music that denegrates them,

    the pressures or raising a child alone,

    , fear of being fired from non union jobs in a tough economy,

    the pain of taking 100 dollars to the supermarket, and getting 50 dollars worth of groceries,

    young Black men forsaking the beauty of our Queens to chase after Wilma Flintstone and Betty Rubble

    , and some Black men acting like they are insensitive to the anguish Black women face daily in this nation.

    MOST females (not just black ones) also operate on the basis of TV show soaps etc. and expect black men (not most men) to be an idealized/not realistic reflection of that crap too...

    I. e., good or bad, etc., most of us are just men, not SUPERMEN...

    So let us be less unrealistic/more realistic, as regards what we can and should expect from each other, via our chosen relationships, etc.

    :fyi:
