    Prejudice and Racism - People wake up!
    I am tired of being the “white chocolate sister”. Why do I have to be white chocolate in order to be accepted by black people? So would I not be accepted if I was just white with no chocolate? If this is not the case it is the message I perceive. Why do I have to prove “my blackness” in order to be accepted? Then again am I really accepted or just tolerated because I am still perceived by my white color. Somebody once said to me that I am okay because they believe I understand black people. Do black people understand what they do to other people by being caught up in color? Is it not Christ we follow? Does he see things and people through colored glasses? Why do I have to be what you need me to be in order to be accepted? Why can’t I just be me?
    Prejudice- black people always claim this about other races but I wonder have they ever stopped to consider they also play a part in this role of being prejudiced?
    As a white woman who has chosen to be with a black man, from the age of 6 to this day and I am 37, this is the only kind of man I have been attracted to. This is not an act for me this is who I am. This is what God made me to be. God created the desires of my heart. Knowing full well what I would become and who I would be with.
    Racism- black people say that other people are racist against them. Therefore no one other than a black person can understand them and what they go through.
    I have to disagree with this. Do black people know what it is like to be hated by everyone including their own race? To be despised and rejected by white people even their own family because of the color of the man they chose to love? To be despised and rejected by black people including all of his family because of the color of the man they chose to love? To be despised and rejected by almost all people because of the color the man they chose to love?
    So when black people speak in terms of racism and prejudice who do you speak about this topic with, other black people? Do you really understand the terms you are speaking of or are you using them as weapons to personify you.
    God created me. I gave my life to Jesus and trying to walk with Him everyday all day. This is supposed to be my focus. I am to focus on the unseen rather than the seen. That is my goal and should be the goal for all people who are in Christ.
    So when you see me what do you see?
    I see people. I have been hurt by all people! Mostly I am hurt and grieve because people still only see my color. We were all created in the image of God! We are all beautiful and have no color in the eyes of the Lord.

    Welcome & please enjoy your short stay......

    why do i say that? Simply because you are new, introduce yourself quite rudely and announce that you are white about 20 times and tell us TO WAKE UP and post it in three different forums obviously to try and get as much attention as you can to flame or spark a verbal war!!

    You've probably never seen the tv show 'what's happening', but like Dee would say to her big brother Roger:

    "eeeeeeewwwwwwwwwww, you bout's to be in trouble"

    White people are so transparent......pun intended!!

    btw, if you've been with a black man since the age of 6 -

    - you should get your lie straight before you click 'post reply' next time...

    Welcome and hang tuff. Let the light of God that created you and sustains you through all this turmoil guide you. We all here have opinions and thats whats shared. No one has/can mandate the outcome for you here Its not easy, quite discouraging at times, but know that God is (as you've stated) a loving, understanding and inclusive God!! He leaves no one outside, except the ones who choose not to believe in and accept him!

    If you read right I said from the age six to my age now I have only been attracted to black men. But pray for you I will do and because God loves me just as much as he loves you I say God continue to bless you and prosper you in His Love!
