    Here we go again!

    Another NEW "member" and already speaking concerning "some ignorant black people".

    What manner of "couciouness" are you speaking?

    What EXACTLY is "couciousness"?!

    At least learn how to spell correctly before attempting to address the "ignorance" of others. :court:

    Brotha Omo,

    You know I love you and think the world of you. I am really surprised that you are unaware that speaking down to members just because they are new is totally out of accord with the nature of this board. If she/he has been here half a nano-second we still give her/him the same respect and courtesy as those who have been here like forever. If I said something you disagreed with would you take a pot shot like this at me?

    Perhaps not and maybe I over-re-acted because this person is new and came in calling other folks "naive".

    If they come in without displaying "respect and courtesy" I realize I am incorrect for doing same inturn.

    Sorry for my "reaction".

    Peace...

    Brotha Omo,

    There is nothing wrong with objecting to what someone says and if someone makes blanket statements about Black people then by all means we need to point that out and make it clear that it is not acceptable.

    What we don't want to do is give people the impression that we discriminate in our treatment of new members from the older ones. In other words. object to that which deserves objection without dragging in irrelevant stuff, Knowamsane?

    Love ya Omo to the eXtreme

    you all have too much ego, instead of talking about the topic you all want to talk about how somebody "said it" too much ego.

    You will do well to get to know us before making sweeping generalizations. As I said we treat everyone with respect and courtesy regardless of how long they've been a member. However, conventional wisddom holds it that when one is new in a community one observes the flow of that community before passing judgement. It takes a really big ego to begin a phrase with "You all" about people you don't even know.

    The way you pose a question says a lot about your reasons for posing it.

    BTW. welcome to Destee. I am river.

    Concious is unattainable to some people.
    Conciousness is what really is having a good relationship with the Almighty and not Christianity. So you have to still have a strong soul and good spirit.
    Others have made a secret pact with the devil and cant be conscious no matter how hard they try.
    But now what is consciousness also? Its having your spiritual senses and all four of them to be real conscious. They all have to do with telepathy and energy receiving from objects and people. You should know it if you have that. Alot of people do these days on different levels. Well not a lot but a lot more than yester year.
