    many of our posters seem to feel that they are smarter than everybody else.
    this 'superior' knowledge seems to come across as hostility and arrogance. anger vented on other black people.
    i constantly wonder why all us 'brilliant' black people cannot get along better. nothing is ever built.
    how can you build with someone who is always insulting?

    if we are so smart how come few of us can get along?

    The hostility can be attributed to many factors. The main factor could be in assuming that they are 'hostile'. It's a thin line between hostility and being passionate about something....

    I've seen posters seem hostile in one thread and then go to another thread, only minutes later and crack a joke...:10500:

    Brother James, if I have seemed hostile toward you, please forgive me. It was that I get strong willed. I hope I have never insulted you in any way. I wish you and yours a great New Year.

    thank you. it is not about me.

    i just observe a level of anger here among our 'best and brightest' no one seems to be getting along.
    i would think that the smartest people here would be able to work things out.
    if they cannot get along what chance do the rest of us have?

    "smart people" don't always get along with other 'smart people' simply because they are both so 'smart'. They more often than not will try to out 'smart' the other person who also thinks they're 'smart' which only goes to prove that neither of them think all that 'smartly'...:)

    It's so true, If those who are aware of what is going on, can't take the time to be civil. then we have a problem.
