you are correct, i should have been more cordial toward Fanyamambo's offer.panafrica said:Brother Jamesfromphilly this is not completely true! Abantu did attack you, and I addressed that. However sister Fanyamambo extended you a kind offer, did not call you out, and you brushed her off (responded with your I have never met a kind African speech). If this is the position you are determined to take within this thread, then you will be attacked, particularly by the Africans who visit. How do you expect me to protect you from that? It is really no different from the inter-racial couples who post to pro-black forums. If you take a opposing position where ever you are, you are going to be disagreed with! Some who disagree with you may not be tactful in doing so. I am trying to keep the conversation civil, but I can't do much more beyond that!
i was on a roll and didn't really feel open.
if one reads what i write you will see that i am not generalizing.
i don't know all Africans, i only speak of my own personal experience.
i feel that is an important point.
if a member gets dumped on for truthfully speaking what they have experienced, there is something wrong here.
if a person can not speak the truth without being cursed, the forum is diminished.
i speak the truth of my personal experience and i do not generalize.
what basis does anyone have to attack me for that?
despite my poor experience, i am still trying to find an African who i can talk with.
if these people feel that i am the enemy, they are sadly mistaken and there will be no progress.
i'll leave this thread so as not to be a further distraction.
