To Destee: In the thread I created "Blackness is not a state of mind," I got directly insulted by Khasm on my writing ability. I got indirectly insulted by Blaklioness. I'm tired of playing or feeling like I have to play or prove the 'I'm black game.' I am 100% African American who made the mistake of marrying an Asian man. I need this board for therapy to find out who and what I am in terms of my race, but some of the moderators do not want to allow it no matter how nice I am. They use terms they know are derogatory. I am trying to follow the rules and reporting the offenders: blaklioness and Khasm. I alsos do not appreciate the jungle bunny comment being thrown up in my face. I already apologized and do not know what else I have to do to have that issue forgotten. I didn't know something I said and admitted out of anger is going to haunt me forever. I cannot leave the site because it means too much to me. I just want to be treated like every other member. Anyway, I have contributed the full year for premium membership. I will be posting my picture when my status goes through so at least people know they are arguing with a black woman. I hope others will follow suite and at least support the site financially, because IT IS THE TRUTH that for me I have to decide do I support the site or use money for advertising. I choose the former because I respect the site and need its perspectives when presented positively towards me.
