Destee.com is a unique place on the internet. It is devoted to loving, encouraging, embracing, teaching, and building with black people. Although there are many black websites on the internet, few have this focus in mind. As a result there have been literally thousands of members over the 4 years this site has existed, who have joined to socialize & communicate with other “community” minded (conscious) black people. This website has even attracted blacks from other countries (many of whom believe in PanAfricanism), who wish to converse and learn with blacks from other nations. Unfortunately this website has also attracted blacks (or at least people advertising themselves as black), that do not wish to build with other black people. Their views are so off-center from the principles of the website, so different from the theme of loving, encouraging, embracing, and teaching black people. The only purpose of their continued presence seems to be to serve as a disruption and distraction to what the rest of us are trying to build together. Our Queen Mother, Destee, has said on occasion that this place is not for everyone. We don’t claim to be all things to all people. Therefore if one does not agree with our goals, why do they remain? Indeed if you don’t agree with loving, encouraging, embracing, teaching, and building with black people, then why post on Destee.com? It is easy to achieve goals with like minded people. It is also easier to build in a peaceful environment. I for one do not believe in interracial dating; however, I understand people have a right to date outside of their race. For this reason, I do not frequent interracial dating/social websites (of which there are many). If I were to frequently inhabit and post anti-interracial messages on interracial forums…my behavior could be considered “harassment”. It would be harassment, since I don’t agree with the views expressed at these websites, I have no business going on there. Similarly I don't hang up at white supremacist websites either! If I don't agree with what they are doing, why would I hang among them (unless I wanted to undermine their efforts)? I am a firm believer of letting people live in peace, even those who live in ways I don't approve of (unless it is illegal). This can be said of most black people. As a rule we believe in letting people live in peace. This is particularly true if another people are not doing us any grievous harm. One thing I’ve noticed is that the live & let live philosophy seems to be rare among white people. White people have a habit of harassing and attempting to intimidate people who do not share their views. Many communities of color have been destroyed…many nations have been colonized because of this way of thinking. This mentality has been expressed by some members who despite their disparaging views about black self-determination & black nationalism, are determined to remain on the website. Knowing what this website is about, why come on if you do not agree? Is your goal to deny us a peaceful environment to build within? Is this behavior not to be considered harassment? Finally do you expect us to treat this behavior as harassment?
