    Hello everyone.

    I just wanted to introduce myself and ask a question or two. my interest is in racial issues in America and I would like to participate in respectful dialogue here. Im a 27 yr old "white" male and Im sure some people will feel its not my place to post here and that is understandable. Afrochat deleted my account when I made a similar request. Im looking forward to meeting you all and feel free to ask me any questions.

    Daville

    Daville ... Hello and Welcome ... :wave:

    It's nice to meet you. What country are you in?

    It seems you're aware that there is a general reluctance to fully embrace you (white people), in an environment that has been created for Black People to share and discuss the experiences unique to us. Unfortunately, this means that you don't really have to do a lot, to disrupt our peace, as many become agitated due simply to the announcement that you're here. This agitation usually leads to the disruption of our peace, which is not necessarily your fault, but you end up paying the price by being banned.

    With this in mind, i do caution you to tread carefully, making yourself at home, as best you can.

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    Yes I understand and am grateful for your welcome and honesty. Maybe it will be best if I dont engage anyone myself and let them come to me or this thread if they wish. Im not interested in agitating what seems to be a very nice community. And international as well?

    Yes, we have Members from all over the world.

    Tell me, what prompts your interest in racial issues in America?

    Are you seeking to end racial injustices in America? Or do you question their existance?

    Have always had questions about racial issues. Its troubling to know things are ingrained in you that you were not aware of. No one can deny they exist.

    Ive never been close friends with a "black" person, although I was around them growing up in my religious community.

    Daville ... do you talk to other white people about the troubling racial issues, and if so, what's that like?

    As a white person, do you have lots of power within the white race?

    If not, do you know white people that have more power than you?

    Can you talk to them for us, asking them to end the racial injustices that no one can deny exists?

    :heart:

    ps ... i moved this thread to the Open Forum, where more Members may see it and be moved to welcome and engage you.

    Greeting Daville and welcome,


    I have two questions for you.

    1. Why did you put quotation marks around the word [white]?

    2. Are you a white person?

    Im looking forward to respectful and constructive dialouge with you.


    Josh
