While looking through and reading most of the threads that have to do with IR and politics, I have noticed some folks telling others that they are not black or they aren't African-Americans. How do you come to realize that this is your position; to tell others that they are not black (that they are Uncle Toms or traitors), and not apart of this community because they do not share the same views as yours? We are a great and beautiful nation of black people who happen to have different views and come from different backgrounds. We should be about respect and equality. We aren't supposed to be shutting doors on each other, we're supposed to opening them. SO...Who gave you the authority to do so?
