I have just paid a sum of money that I cannot afford so I can use this site as a form of therapy for dealing with my problems. With terms like 'Clarence Thomas' being thrown around, particularly on threads that I start it is hard not to wonder if that's how I'm being thought of as simply for giving my opinion. I offer a question to Destee: if I am thought to be a Clarence Thomas, why am I allowed to post here? If I cannot post in a way that is expressing my soul without being thought of as a Clarence Thomas or still talked to in one of my own threads in a demeaning way, why am I allowed to post? Anyway, if that is the perception I want to know up front to know that anything I say will not be seen in the light of others: period. The exact thread in question is: Blackness is not a state of mind. The moderator that keeps throwing the term Clarence Thomas around, (a man that some black people still respect at least in secret though it's not me), is Panafrica.
