    :toast:(for knowing John Brown)

    No, you have others...

    I have to admit, not many blacks kno who John Brown is. I've asked both white and black....that is the school system for ya.

    Peace!

    These are just two of the black paintings I have. They are hung above the couch on each side. I view it as both of us working together to raise our kinds and pass along our perspective knowledge, me to my son, and her's to our daughter. I know Yt feels uneasy when they come into my house...but that's life. Look how much time we spend looking at things that don't represent us.

    Peace!

    I couldn't agree more with on your response especially the bolded portion. I am sure it would have eliminated much of this madness in our community. Sagging pants, numerous baby daddys, abusive behavior, strippers...etc.

    Yes indeed! I am a huge NBA fan and I noticed this years ago as well. Beige people everywhere. It's almost like dual AA parents is being phased out. I recall when my son and daughter went to their first school outside a military community and the came home and said, " mom I think we are the only black people in our class." The others were IR white mom and black dad. My nephew I often say, You have a black mom and a black dad yet you seem to think beauty only comes in beige. How did that happen?" He even told my sister don't tell auntie about my new fiance'. LOL That poor girl was terrified to meet me and she still is . Now they are married with a son who is going to be taught the same thing. It's sad. The actors and actresses thing is crazy too. You can't look like me for the most part and be successful.

    Has the naacp ever been regarded as pro-black - anything???

    We go from whether or not an interracial couple can be
    pro-black, to if a white can be pro-black. In whose
    pro-black organization? Yours? I don't see myself
    in a pro-black organization with someone yt or in
    an interracial relationship. It would be a conflict of interest to
    say the least.

    X was asked if white people could join his organization,
    and without fumbling or mincing his words, he said "no".
    That, "white folks can help but they cannot join". Gotta
    learn to get along with ourselves before getting along with others.

    For anyone squeemish over that, look at this way: There are
    women's only gyms out there. Now is that because they hate
    men? In an attempt to preempt potential remarks of levity,
    who would post that they take issue with that and why....

    ...Tell you what.

    They can whatever they wannabe.

    If "a white" signed in an declared they
    were pro-black, they could and it ain't
    nothing anyone can do about it.

    ...Feel where I am going with this?

    The need for some of us to have white acceptance and approval is beyond pathetic considering no other groups give zero Fs what we feel, which is evident of the unapologetic, entitled, blatant appropriation of Black culture throughout the diaspora. They're so bold that they try to make it seem like we're attacking harmless fans instead of the culture vultures who want to stick bow on our creation and act like they were integral to the realization of the final product.

    Very good point about John Brown, bro. Enki, its a shame some folk don't know the history.

    Who would be tantamount to Brown, or, who are the others you mentioned?
