    Peace and Blessings Family,

    I'm gonna just throw this out here ... :look:

    We have been online for more than 18 years serving the Black Community.

    I don't think anyone has ever invited us or me to be a Member of the Black Conscious Community.

    I aint mad ... i'm jes say'n ... how does one become a Member?

    I remember years back when i first began hearing this term online, and even wondered then.

    What does it really mean?

    Do you gotta know somebody, that know's somebody, that know's somebody ... to get in?

    How does it work? How does one qualify to be a Member? Where do you join?

    Thanks in advance!

    :heart:

    ps ... i define conscious as being able to hear, feel, see, etc.

    adjective: knowing and perceiving; having awareness of surroundings and sensations and thoughts
    Example: "Remained conscious during the operation"

    first.. you need a name.. preferably with "black" in it.. for example.. The Black Desteeinians..

    then.. you need a ridiculous costume..

    then.. you need to define an identity that clearly separates you from the masses of "black people".
    and the rest is just like hip-hop.

    also..

    setup your youtube channel..
    be sure to take aim at one of the other black "conscious" groups..
    then.. you can setup "debates" that you.. with the help of a flavor flav-like hype-man.. promote like prize-fights or rap battles.. then you can charge admission and sell your groups merchandise.. and stack your paper and your notoriety.

    [​IMG]

    Then you can argue with black people about black people for the rest of your days:



    Thats all it takes!

    lol skuderjaymes ... Sister Liberty just posted to a thread about Umar Johnson and it made me think of this thread, and the whole so-called online conscious community ... and so i came back and found your muse ... :)

    It's really krazee Skuder ... word iz ...black folk are scamming black folk, take'n folk's money, hustling each other, hoe'n, pimp'n and erry thang is going on over there in that conscious community ...death threats, fighting, gangs ... black folk calling other black folk names ... talk'n 'bout folk's Mommas ... hate'n on each other for have'n a mind of their own ... just so much kraziness ... i guess it's good we were never invited ... they problee knew we'd not fit in properly ... :wink:

    Happy New Year Skuder!

    Love and Miss You!

    Hoping all is well.

    Much Love and Peace.

    Hi Brother Chuck ... Happy New Year ... :love:

    Thanks for the love and yes, i am well ... i hope you are too ... :)

    It's interesting with this - Online Conscious Community - it does not appear to be tied to a web site.

    It seems that YouTube is the heart of the community, where all the drama takes place.

    Everyone uploads their videos there, which contain their opinion, platform, agenda, etc.

    If there is a single web site to point to for this ... it would be ... youtube.com

    It is sort of ironic, as it is not black owned, but it houses the black conscious community ... it seems.

    YouTube is Google, big and able to offer spaces that make having your own web site seem wasteful.

    Much easier to let someone else do the work and receive the greater benefit of your content.

    YouTube pays (what they want) for views and clicks and stuff on the videos. So the drama is inherently encouraged, as it generates more views, clicks, and ultimately money.

    All of that to say ... i made no assessment of the present state of black web sites.

    It seems black web sites have little to do with the online black conscious community.

    Love You!

    :heart:

    "It seems black web sites have little to do with the online black conscious community."

    Interesting point. Much of the social media utilized by black people is more about sensationalism, gossip, coonery, beefs and bad behavior. Just look at the thousands of YouTube and WorldStarHipHop videos. It's pathetic. But I'm sure there are some positive sites for black intellectual interaction and enlightenment somewhere on the internet...

    :hello: Black Cypher ... Welcome Welcome Welcome ... :wave: :wave: :wave:

    Thanks for joining us and sharing!

    I do not find us pathetic. I'd bet that white people act worse than we do.

    Do you have any numbers on this?

    Please make yourself at home.

    Much Love and Peace.
