    I'm an Indian person, and I wondered if it is O.K. to be on here and express my veiws. I think it's good for all people of colour (and just people in general), to learn and educate themselves about others whom we share this planet with.

    I'm okay with it, but I'm not a founder on this board. One of my favorite cousins is married to a native american. So I got nothing but love.

    Sure, as long as it breaks or defeat the negative stereotype allocated or casted unto to black people WITHOUT CAUSE FOR AGES.

    Once that is broken then EDUCATION will truly begin in my opinion.

    That is, if you wish to seek the TRUTH. Nobody I know of will be deny in seeking it. I dont speak for everyone here or this forum itself but welcome anybody who wants to UNDERSTAND OUR WORLD and the people in this world which is always needed. That is PEACE and JUSTICE.

    Be well.

    Shamila ... hello and welcome ... :wave:

    Yes it is okay for you to be here, but please understand, this community is about Black People learning and re-learning how to love ourselves and each other. History has proven that when others come in, announcing that they are not Black, it often causes distractions and disruptions ... causing us to ban them ... in order to maintain our peace.

    With this in mind, you may want to tread carefully, but you are certainly welcome.

    :heart:

    While our primary goal is to Teach / uplift and love blacks
    beyond the means of any other then who we are
    and our main goals , this site is target to black love

    whereas acceptable beyond IR which we truely don't care
    for or wish to hear no more then what we are focus on and
    that is ourselves as people

    what views can you offer us as blacks , for the blacks ?
    beside no more then study blacks, education is good but
    not at our expandability, we not the learning tool to view.

    while there are many sites where mixture of peoples share views
    and IR we are not one of them our focus is about us / blacks which
    i don't believe there is much you can share or offer us , if so state them !

    We are learning ourselves first hand under a deeper scope whereas
    there's nothing you can bring to our table ...We become even numbers
    not odd.

    All East Indians are not Black, but I would like Shamila to tell us about those who are Black (Dravidians or "untouchables" I believe they are called)....especially since she's so interested in the Black experience here at Destee and us all getting to know those who share the world in which we live. It would be a learning experience indeed. Also, if you could Shamila, can you please share how your own half-white, half-Indian children would rank in the caste system of your home country? Thank you and welcome to Destee!

    Sister BlakLioness, where did the sister say her babies were half-white, half-indian??? Did I miss something in her post??? Was it edited out, or something?(smile!)

    Sister Shamila, you are welcome if you come in peace, and do not seek to control and manipulate... If you meet those standards, we cool... I must warn you, however, that we've been down this road with other ethnic groups in the past, and it didn't work out... This a tough room to work if you don't come correct, and in full-effect... Sorta like ShowTime at The Apollo(smile!)


    Peace!
    Isaiah
