    put out a full summary of a poll "Being A Black Man"

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/cont ent/article/2006/06/03/AR2006060300695.htm l

    IMHO--the question posited is unfair. The author errantly treads the weaker waters of 'discrimination'. "Racism" is a term more befitting! This 'refined' mental illness of YT has been around for more than 500 years and is the true 'root' of the problem: A venemous poison that continues to be the bane of our existence as it freely flows thru every level of people activity in AmeriKKKa.

    "Being A Black Man" has never been adequately addressed since birth: slavery. It was rather, abused-beaten-abandonded and then re-invented as our own fault, problem and condition!

    You also might want to read Tonyaa Weathersbee's commentary at blackamericaweb,com I agree with her.

    As I stated before,instead of focusing on the international system of oppression that they put on our people,the focus on how we react to it to try an manipulate us into being how they want us,like animals.


    Just recently, a study entitled "Black men torn between promise and doubt" written by two white guys, Steven A. Holmes and Richard Morin, contributing writers for the Washington Post, share their inferences on the thoughts of Black men about their livelihood in America. The research methodology used to conclude the results should always be considered suspect by Blacks.

    Here is the corrected link, Sista...

    Click HERE for the article mentioned in Post #1.

    I agree with I-khan. We need to study our problem, find solutions to them and then implement it. We really need to stop letting White folks analyze us so that they can benefit by finding a way to defeat us.

    What is it with the Washington Post? I posted an article from the other day. The author was discussing how Black men view themselves in Amerikkka. I had issues with the article because it had an obvious slant of weak Black men with no balance whatsoever.

    These articles have an obvious purpose to me besides discussing an issue justly.
