    Peace and Blessings Family,

    I was wondering, what place (anywhere in the world) is known for respectful interaction amongst Black People from all backgrounds, life choices, etc.?

    I was thinking of the church buildings, but they usually cater to their own kind, not necessarily known for fully embracing all life paths / choices.

    I can't quickly think of any, which may be evidence that we can't easily pull it off, helping me understand why it's been so diffcult to achieve here.

    For whatever reason, it just doesn't seem to be an easy thing for us to do, respectfully interact with each other (with all life choices present).

    Can you help me with this though? Can you name some places known for respectful interaction amongst us?

    Are we (this community) trying to do what isn't present anywhere else in the world?

    Thanks in advance.

    :heart:

    because he knew that wherever there is religious hatred, there you will find folks who desire to divide the race

    basically in Brooklyn brothers willv talk about Black issues anywhere, on a bus, train, supermarket, folks know you are sincere they will talk from those who are making ens meet to those who are making 6 figures, and the sisters are like that as well.
    The Million Man and Million Woman march had an amazing effect upon the young men here in BK, and an effect of solidarity among women of african descent.
    The Black out of the 70s was crazy, folks looting, robbing killing , but the one
