I want to first of all apologize to everyone who stops by Destees for what I'm about to say. I specifically want to apologize to those who frequent here on a daily basis. Why? Because for the life of me, I simply can't understand what the problem is in regard to supporting our own!! Hold on, let me back up a bit. We have no problem giving Mr./Mrs. Caucasian money for some over priced Nikes, Tims, Gucci and all that other stuff that superficially we in our European minded ignorance take as being important to our illusionary status quo as a person. Yet we seem to have some serious issues with doing or establishing or supporting anything that is TRULY OUR OWN !! NOW WHY IS THAT? I was in chat the other night and I informed Destee that it cost something like 33 cents a day for a person to be a premium member here. In the course of a month that almost comes out to 10.00. But just the idea of someone saying to themselves that this community is not worth 33 cents a day blows my mind beyond comprehension. Now if this was one of them European owned so called black sites like Afronet, Blacktown, Blackvoices or whatever that had banners and European commercials on them promoting the economic benefits of white people, I bet we'd have no problems then, would we? But we have a site here with people and information and topics that are never and would never be discussed elsewhere as they are here. We post the real deal scholars and issues of our people as opposed to "what so called white bread black people" care to discuss or try to act as if it don't exist...and yet we somehow have issues with 33 cents a day !! Unlike some people here, personally speaking...I ain't trynna hear that shhit !!! We need to be ashamed to even look our black @sses in the mirror and claim ourselves as being black for even trying to justify or make excuses about 33 cents a day !! See, Destee with her compassionate self will probably try to take this thread off, but if they were my shoes instead of hers, I'd get rid of every sorry no 33 cents a day paying joker on here !! Yet our people come here, drink the water, eat the fruits, enjoy the meat and much needed knowledge of this site, but they are very careful not to leave anything on the plate. We have proven that we are good at taking but we don't know jack shhit about giving...even when it's to ourselves or to our own benefit !!!...and this site has proven over the years to be to our own benefit just by virtue of it being the ONLY BLACK OWNED, OPERATED AND COMMERCIAL FREE SITE ON THE INTERNET...RUN AND SUPPORTED BY OUR PEOPLE FOR OUR PEOPLE !!! I guess it goes to show that all our people aren't really all our people when it comes to our people doing for our people. What other reason can there be for the lack of 33 cents a day. What's that, a cookie or bag of chips? I ain't really looking for no responces to this, cause anything outside of our recognizing the shame of 33 cents ain't nothing but some serious bullshyt !!
