I've been lurking around destee for years and finally decided to make an account. I've been scrawling the net for african or black online communities with like minded folks. I've been to a lot and been disappointed to find so many black people with white minds.

Black people who defend racism against black people and its totally frustrating. I'm afraid my opinions might polarize so I hope not to not offend. Destee has been a place I always visited to find mostly "pro black views" or I guess views that are for black interest and its comforting.

I've been really looking into modern media and how damaging it has been to black people, of being subjected to white images for hundreds of years. But I haven't really seen any topics on that subject. But anyways just wanted to say hi and thanks for letting me join and stuff.

Glad to have you sign up, BernardJ. I can only imagine what its like trying to find a good black website. After coming here, there could be nothing comparable out there, satisfying the specific needs of our people ... make yourself at home, because you are.

On the topic hard for you to find, here's something close, maybe, but if not, you can always start a Thread on the topic:


Overcoming Self-Hate Part II

According to the author of The Developmental Psychology of The Black Child, Amos N. Wilson, this double consciousness affects all Africans "regardless of income" and the black middle class "is the most schizoid of all'

"The black middles class, which now includes almost half of black families in America, is caught on the horns of a serious dilemma. In its effort to succeed according to white standards it has become increasingly alienated from its black roots and yet its rejection and non-acceptance by the white middle class whose acceptance it perceives as the necessary factor needed for authenticating its own existence, leaves it in a state of psychological limbo (this perception is also shared by the rest of black classes ... less consciously than is the case of the black middle class) p.54-55
Therefore, it is quite safe and logical to conclude that money and status are not antidotes to self-hate, nor are they byproducts of self-love.

:hello: BernardJ ... Welcome Welcome Welcome ... :wave:

I'm glad you took the plunge and decided to join us!

I hope we don't disappoint, as folk often think we're one thing, only to join and find something else.

We're quite diverse with all kind of opinion being shared ... so don't be surprised when you see it.

If you can handle varied opinions, ones that might not be like yours, you'll probably be okay here.

I'm hoping for that as I look forward to reading what you have to share with us.

Thanks for joining and please make yourself at home!

Much Love and Peace.
