I've given up on it. Not saying it doesn't exist but there is a culture of women where some women especially sisters aren't holding each other accountable. So when they have a come up, its usually high fives instead of codemnation especially when it comes at the expense of a black man.
cast your net a little wider.....there are plenty of good sisters out there

Black love is vitally important to our success as a race. I cant think of any union that stronger and more foundational than Black on Black love.

Seeing all the dysfunction can leave you discouraged. I stay to myself, and rarely interact with people. There's this brother who comes to my house to drink, and vent about how badly his woman treats him. He's a good dude, and you know men like him get messed over alot of the time. He saw I was a young dude with an arsenal of knowledge, so he comes over, or we chill at his place, to discuss the problems in the community, and relationships between men, and women. My other homie's wife makes good money, but he's a convicted felon who dropped out, so his prospects in that area are less then hers. When we're all together I pick up on her being condescending towards my homie. Putting him down when he talks about his dreams, when dude talks about his plans for the future, she always puts him down, I can see she doesn't believe in him. Sometimes you're just better of being alone. Don't put too much faith in things that are outside of you.

Can the Community be expected to continue without it? Should it be Celebrated? Taken for granted? Promoted? Do you realize it's importance, but feel no obligation to contribute to it? Please share your thoughts!
We should be discussing black love as a community, etc. it seems that after freeing ourselves from the oppressions and violence of slavery, segregation, etc. African Americans somehow committed suicide, etc. We've apparently turned all our hatred against each other, etc. Self hate consumes a great many of us, that's why we find it hard to collectively join hands and minds together to work together to solve our many racial, social, and economic issues, etc. we must work collectively together as there will be no more Dr. Kings', etc. as if to help us find ways to continue to overcome our social situations in America, etc. We all must now do our part, complaining is one thing, yet finding workable solutions is worth a united effort, etc. Hell, we all claim to know what's wrong, now... lets fix it! Have a great day...

Lets talk about "Black Love" period. Not just between a black man and woman, but between all of us as a people, etc. We can love each other based up mere sexual gender, but not love each other as a people, a ethnic group of human beings, etc. Is this to be believed? Isn't this why we don't have many support groups, etc. We don't trust each other enough to collectively join hands together and work for the betterment of all Black Americans, etc. 400 plus years of violent and mental oppression, did have a toll on our people, etc. After we freed ourselves from bondage, we seemly committed suicide by committing all this gun violence against each other as if we forget who our true enemy really was, etc. Look at our inner cities, etc. where young and older black people are murdering each other by the hundreds, etc. Now where is the black love in this? Should we celebrate? Or.... "I'll leave that part up to all of you.... later...

Just because people come here to share ideas on different topics should not be interpreted as though they aren't doing anything but talking. There are a ton of threads here that address Black love in one way or another. A great number of members have shared what they do out in their communities to address issues and support each other. Some of us work in fields and get paid to support each other. Obviously we are paying attention to the issues, nationally and locally. This discussion board has been around for over 20 years. Longer than some of the younger members in age. I would venture to say that whatever you think about US, it's already been discussed here. In my opinion, everything we think and how we feel bears repeating because it may be new to some among us and who knows, maybe the idea will catch fire and spread and be the solution that will finally free and uplift us.

What exactly is your ideology?!
I'll be honest. I like black culture forums, so I've signed up for this one, BX, and Lipstick Alley. I won't post too often, only on things that I'm really interested in. Nice to meet you. :)
