    Hi, my name is Josh Yu and I am currently doing a case study at UCLA for my Sociology M5 class. We are asked to choose a black community and prove based on the criteria given, why this is a black community. I have decided to do something a little different and rather than locating an actual black community, I have chosen this forum for my studies. If you have some free time, and would like to contribute, your help would be much appreciated. If you do not feel comfortable answering some of the questions, or if you simply don't have time to complete it all, please just number the answers so that I can tell which question it is you answered. Remember, anything helps! Thank you so much!
    Sincerely,
    Josh Yu

    Hello JoshYu ... i appreciate your interest in our community, but we are reluctant to let folk use us for their research purposes.

    I must say though, i like your approach much better than most, and i'm sure if used somewhere else it will be welcomed and perhaps even allowed to continue.

    I wish you much success with your project and studies, but I'm going to close this thread.

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:
