    Okay so I came across a old thread started by Destee awhile back talking about a few tribes in Africa where the women can have multiple husbands. After reading some responses it made me think about somethings. Can a person, male or female, be promiscuous and still be Afrocentric or "conscious".

    While it may seem unrelated because what a person does in between the sheets is personal but in a world where we tend to be more judgmental of others more than ourselves what we do in our personal life can seem to contradict our way of thinking, so I ask...

    Would we still react to Huey Newton the same way if he was a pimp or had multiple baby mammas and a revolutionary?

    If a sister could break down the whole history of our ancestral lands yet, due to whatever circumstances, found herself stripping and/or prostituting would you still see her as a sister/goddess/queen and/or have respect for as such??????

    It doesn't matter if she does, I was kinda speaking figuratively rather than about her personally. Her representing a well respected female personality that's doing something for us a people (by providing a platform). Would your view of any well respected female (or male) personality who doing is contributing to us positive change if you found out they were promiscuous in anyway?

    Multiple partners leads to health problems, even death.

    That's my question to you, would it matter to you? Can you take a conscious sista seriously if you knew she was messing with 3 different dudes at the same? Or a conscious brother who brag about the different females he hit last night?

    I seen a pornstar doing a interracial scene with a anhk chain on and I seen another 1 with Africa tattooed on her ***, can you still look at them as goddesses in spite of that?

    I'm about the Black Family. Mum, pa, aunts, uncles, grandfolk. nephews, nieces, cousins, the works. Promiscuity contradicts that to me. Especially in this day and age.
