    First thought is that there's a lot of material here that I would consider worthy of submission.

    Secondly, "for those that want to disparage black folk"; "an african american female; not African ...". <sigh> We're Africans! Each and every one of us. Until we can all get to that, we are not only contributing, but actively perpetuating our continuing downfall. Maybe you'll hear that someday ...

    Thirdly, maybe this might, actually, stir up enough "drama" to do something ... I just wish it would be positive, like changing the "target rich environments" that makes a site like this possible.

    Fourthly, I'm glad that I won't do flash!! LOL!

    Fifth, who's gonna come up with the counter-site???

    Sixth, when I figured they'd go after somebody after they got done with MJ, I didn't figure on them going for everybody all at once! Now, y'all be sure and take your blood pressure medicine!!

    Seventh, why promote the site here? Right; same reason for "promoting" black conservative websites ... but, again; where are the positive sites? I hope that they appreciate the traffic referrals that they get from Destee.com; I'd be interested to see their logs ... but not enough to go ask them!

    Eighth, nice "letter to the editor" ... even though it makes the excuse that "we're like that because we are victims!"

    To anAfrican:
    Thanks for the compliment. I just wanted to respond to your belief that I was invoking the victim mentality as an excuse for our current problems.

    The fact that we currently are, and that our ancestors previously were victimized, is a fact. Stating that fact as I did, is not the same as stating that "being victimized justifies the victim mentality". I would never say such a thing and if I gave that impression, I apologize.

    we do happen to be victims.
    i think we will never heal until we look at the actual amount of the damage done.

    I recieved a reply to the email I sent to the hotghettomess site. Here it is.

    I assume this was written by the site creator. In any case were all just engaging in constructive dialogue. I didn't really expect them to shut down the site. I hope they post my email in the comments section. Then at least people who visit the site will get to read a constructive criticism of the site's purpose, and be able to use it to determine how much value the site provides.

    I'm impressed you received a response, I've often written many rebuttals and made counterpoints which were completely ignored. My first thought was might be a person we can reason with. However, seeing that there is a DVD for sale obviously their reasoning is not to invoke "change", but to make a profit. Petitioning for change while simultaneously exploiting what's worse in the community. This woman needs to run for a polical office!
