There are many, many threads on this site that I NEVER EVEN look at, much less click on. I have no interest in them. If there are negative vibes there, I would never no it. Would you mind telling me why you would go running up into a conversation that you know is going to produce negative vibes for you? Yes, this is a Black site but contrary to popular belief, all Black people don't think alike or have the same opinion on stuff.
to see brothers professing their love for white people makes me depressed.
i suppose i will not be back on the thread. you got it.

Even if "many" Bi-racial children were killed back in the day, it's obvious that "many" weren't. Grab 100 random Black Americans and 100 random Black Africans, shuffle them together and I would bet you that you could correctly place them into their proper category of American or African. We don't look like our African brothers and sisters because we are mixed.

I was surprised by the member's denial myself. I did a little digging and found this article titled "Exact How 'Black' is Black America?" Distinguished Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates reported...

* According to Ancestry.com, the average African American is 65 percent sub-Saharan African, 29 percent European and 2 percent Native American.
* According to 23andme.com, the average African American is 75 percent sub-Saharan African, 22 percent European and only 0.6 percent Native American.
* According to Family Tree DNA.com, the average African American is 72.95 percent sub-Saharan African, 22.83 percent European and 1.7 percent Native American.
* According to National Geographic's Genographic Project, the average African American is 80 percent sub-Saharan African, 19 percent European and 1 percent Native American.
* According to AfricanDNA, in which I am a partner with Family Tree DNA, the average African American is 79 percent sub-Saharan African, 19 percent European and 2 percent Native American.

There's just no denying that "them" and "us" are family. In fact, we're all family, so what's the big deal if some of us fall in love?

It is absolutely amazing that someone as conscientious as you would become depressed over what other people say or do.

It has been a journey and for all mothers sometimes we need to listen to us within and not another man or woman flaws. Just over the past days and weeks seeing the outside of the world versus all the man-made stuff just made me realize how much we have to stand up and back the Kings 100 percent now. It is either now never. Some Kings are so deep you have to sit there and listen, then listen again and rewind to listen to them again. Malcolm X makes you listen then listen and then listen again. Brother Shayheh is very honest and vulnerable...yet he is really deep for being such an age he is at; Brother Coger too and many others on this site though outside here in GA it is tremendous heroes and heroines who never get heard. Oppression and depression. And see what I realize is that everyone is great in his or her own way, in order for us to get a clear picture of freedom and peace. Moving on to the next post....:thinking:

Wow, I've enjoyed reading this thread. Especially kadijah lol, I've skipping posts just to read her replies. Sis b setting it straight lol.

But I hate to see our great Ancestor's name used to justify interracial dating/marriage. I'm talking about Malcolm. And I love my ancestor I really do, but lets set a couple things straight, 1st, regardless of whatever change in attitude he had he was still problack. 2nd, he still thought caucasians were devils, and he believed the difference in attitude with the whites he met were because of Islam, which he said if the white man can study Islam it may change his personality. 3rd, Malcolm was naive and didnt know better, he had just broken apart from the nation of islam and was just discovering orthodox islam during his tour. If he was aware of the colorism in islam and the treatment darker skin muslims are subjected to in these arab countries he would have thought differently.

So with that being said it makes nauseous seeing people use our black prince's name to justify their own selfish desires. Saying, "look even malcolm said white people weren't bad", which goes to show these people dont know anything about Malcolm.

I find it comical that you become nauseous over trying to impose your own selfish hang-ups upon another grown-up. LOL
If a grown man or woman chooses to fulfill their desires, it's seriously none of your business if fulfilling their desires clashes with your desires. Get over yourself and your nauseousness, live your life and stop worrying about what other grown folks choose to do with theirs.

Look I know your happy and want to show your white girl off round the town but nowhere in my post did I say anything about you or your relationship. I mean I dont see how you can take what I said as a personal attack which proves what people have been saying about you throughout the thread. I said "people using our great ancestors name to justify their own selfish desires" is what makes me nauseous. I personally dont care who u ******..

Who said I took it personally? I just told you how funny it is when folks like you are bothered by what grown folks do that has nothing to do with you.

What exactly is your ideology?!
I'll be honest. I like black culture forums, so I've signed up for this one, BX, and Lipstick Alley. I won't post too often, only on things that I'm really interested in. Nice to meet you. :)
