    Black man and white man get into a car accident. They get out of their respective cars to survey the damage.

    Black Man: Whew! That looks like about $300
    White Man: Yep. It looks pretty bad. And you look like you could stand a drink.
    Black Man: Yeah man, my nerves are shot. Thanks

    White man reaches into his car and pulls out a beer gives it to the Black man.

    Black Man: This sure is good. And I sure do feel betta. You look like you could stand some too.
    White Man: Oh no, I'll wait for the police.


    We participate in racism when we lose sight of who we are, where we are, and what we are doing.

    Something to think about, I agree!

    That guy is living with his eyes wide shut if he could not see the deception behind the other one's kindness. Why is it that black people feel more comfortable around and are quick to trust Cauasians? I honestly dont they are all ethnocentric and every thing has to be about race.

    Beloved One:

    They become comfortable around them because their mind-set is like theirs

    Wake UP, Africans of America!

    because they were created by this western mindset as "black people" and seem to prefer to remain "black people" rather than to work at returning to the African People that we were before our introduction to this "society".

    i've said it before, and i will always say it: Until such time as we resume our African Name/Identity, we will continue to be slaves/black people/nothing.

    the coffee is getting cold, Descendants of enslaved Africans! Better wake up soon or you won't ...

    Beloved anAfrican:

    True.

    It is our Once divine mind-set that will set us free from the programming of thei slave catcher, corruptor, Human being mind-set.

    I totally agree with the names. There is power in deep meaning in names.

    Thats right we are "Africans". I had never liked the term "Black" or "Negro". Negro sounds almost like *igg** to me.

    Negroes grow on knees and are just a little higher than toe-grows.

    Returning to our African conscious is part and parcel of knowing who we are, where we are and what we are doing.
