    Sisters and Brothers of Destee.Com

    This is my final day of being at destee.com,I'm appalled at something here that has happened recently,and was the icing on the cake of other things that have gone on here. It was the straw that broke the camel's back.
    I will not return,will not support this so called site that is supposed to uplift the family..the black race..I would state the stuff here but I'm not going to.
    It was nice while it lasted. I hope you guys see the truth one day. Peace.
    Samurai,Issael...you can email me. [email protected]. Please Keep in touch with me, I would greatly appreciate it.

    PEACE NISA:

    I don't know that you will read this before your departure, but I will post it here anyway, as well as forwarding it to the e-mail address you were so kind to leave me/us.

    I am so sorry that the things that you mention here (that I have noticed, along with others as well) have taken place.

    But I admire your strength of resolve with regards to the matter. You've done what only a Black woman can:

    Your leaving serves as an eye-opener for me, to the degree that I'm forced to evaluate my presence here, and the good it does, in the face of a SAVAGE that is allowed to run rampant.

    I only hope that it does the very same for others here.

    This is apparently the end of our time together here on DESTEE, but please know that this will not be the end of our acquaintance overall. You will know me, and I will know you for some time to come, Divine Willing.

    In the meantime, you know where you can find an on-line home:

    PEACE

    Why go through such lengths to post that you are about to leave yet not specify the events that lead you in making that decision?

    The only way for Destee.com to improve itself is for members to let the mods know where they felt it has gone wrong.

    Wow, Nisa, what happened that would make you so upset??? This makes me somewhat upset, and I don't even know what happened!!! I am not happy with your decision to up and step off, and not tell us what is the matter... We have to place more faith in one another, and be patient with one another when things are said or done that hurt us, but are not life and death... I am just being honest... I do not accept your leaving without explaining what happened, and I say that because you are a GREAT sister, and a GREAT contributor to this board, and will be sorely missed... We cannot allow you to leave without a serious fight to keep you among us, know what I'm saying???
    Now, come on back, and let's please try to work stuff out...


    Peace!
    Isaiah

    Speaking on NISA's behalf:

    The issues that she speaks of are ones that have been taking place for quite sometime.

    One need only browse the forum in the most casual manner, and see the issues that take place. The moderators know about it, because they have addressed in numerous times as well, along with a couple of our Elders here.

    It's ironic to me, that this event of our Beloved Sister leaving, was the culmination of the topic of "what is offensive".

    I mayhaps address this specifically in the thread in which it began, but it seems to me that people are owed apologies around here, but are yet to receive them.

    I am sorry that this wonderful Queen feels ostracized from here (and justifiably so).

    PEACE

    Brother Samurai, no one here is a savage... I defended your right to critque Dr. King... I don't defend no one's right to call family members SAVAGE... That's uncalled for... We get into disagreements with one another, but no one is a SAVAGE up in here...

    Peace!

    PEACE ISAIAH:

    I think the issue of who/what a savage is, needs to come into scrutiny before such a declaration can be made on your part.

    Take it as you will, but sans NISA keeping her silence, it is the savage actions and statements of one individual that has brought her to her departure.

    People say that they want explanations, yet are not comfortable with what they here.

    I'm beginning to see through the irony of why this issue is as of yet unsolved.

    Everything can be solved! This place is not perfect, yet it’s one place for Black people to care about one another. I said many things on here Brothers and Sisters can be mad about... I am quite aggressive at times, yet no one reject me. Sister Nisa stay! We need you here... don’t leave.

    The main problem that has arisen, is Destee not being offended by being called a negress. I won't support a site or someone who is not offended by it..if we are supposed to be uplifting our people. I've brought up other issues as far as moderation to her,and it was not addressed.She wants 10 dollars a month,but how can you be a negress and pro black. I won't support it. There is other factors involved,if you keep your eyes open. I'm sickened by it, I've wanted to end my membership before,and I came back...this is enough.
    I can find a site where there intentions match their mindset.
