    What are we looking for here, using the metaphor of a math problem, when trying to solve problems? We are responsible for the right equation or we end up with false answers. It is like the air plane, flying just one degree off (false) takes us waaaay off corse and we miss the destination by hundreds of miles. Plus, there are people who are looking for truth so they can understand life around them. We are responsible to keep confusion out of posts because of prejudice, hate, which makes the hater; and the young persons with the new mind for the future, the victims. Why make life more difficult for the very dear who are sincerely looking to build thoughts with truth. Isn't life tough enough, without sending people onto hopeless roads?

    So, when I went on to the thread that gave ten reasons why white people are what they are, and I thought, okay, I might find a gem here, # 1. was, "They are't human." Really?
    Maybe the poster believes that to be true because somebody else posted that one point out of ten to him. There are a lot of things that could be said, but this doesn't help, because it isn't real. The result of believing something that isn't real is false notions and beliefs that grow out from it. Then where's the success? People will add that equation to their process of dealing with white people and no good can come from it. It makes their perspective off corse and weakens the stratagem of equal level debate with people in a lot of different ways. That is like saying, "Hello, I'm going to be involved in politics for the sake of my people and I want you to vote my way, because I know white people are not human.

    I remember when I was a kid, I was told by a man that Chawawas (Sp?) weren't dogs, they were rats. You should have seen the woman holding her darling little dog hyperventilate when I tried to convince her of this fact.

    Everything posted on the more open forums (non-study groups) can be challenged. If you see something that's interesting enough for you to debate or discuss, join in.

    And every poster only speaks for themselves.

    White people aren't human?
    *laugh*

    'Welcome to the Internet'.

    I mean - I like the metaphor but I don't understand why you're reading into these things. I just read from some guy (another 'prophet'. go figure.) in the female forum who basically said that black women are the enemy and in cahoots with white men to destroy all black men everywhere.

    *laugh*

    Some posters are just plain nuts. What are you gonna do?
    *shrug*

    I know, huh. But ya know, somebody is going to believe that and create a religion, or an underground movement against black women. lol And really, how true is that? ...enough to be a little scarey. I think the guy that posted that believes it. And he will convince someone else. See? That is what I am reading into posts that don't strengthen a better cause for clear understanding to build a solid way forward in the world.

    I had a professor in college that said such outrageous things that weren't true, agenda driven, that I raised my hand for a rebuttal (with evidence) enough that he told me I couldn't raise my hand for three days and he sent me back into the corner with the football players. Not so bad. heehee

    Whether it be cults or other so-called "alternative" or extremist thinking or living platforms, Black or White, there will always be those who buy into them.

    The NOI advocated that whites are the devil.

    Whites advocated that Blacks are animals, specifically likening us to monkeys and even went so far to say that Black men grew monkey tails at sunset.

    No matter how "false" it may be to you, there are those who truly, sincerely still hold these views.

    Seemingly, in your book, so are Blacks who render constructive criticism to other Blacks.

    You replied to ME, Bro. James, referencing "in your book." I responded in the same vein.
