    In all honesty, thanks for your love and support.

    However, I can no longer tolerate the back-biting and nit-picking and impartiality of some of your moderating team.

    I LEAVE you in Peace, before I am banished!

    brother Omowale....

    Brother O ... c'mon ... talk to me ... what happened ... what went wrong ... let's talk about it.

    I don't know what you're talking about, so i can't even begin to address it specifically.

    We've gone through a lot together, always successful at overcoming the challenges.

    Let's not stop now ... k ?

    Talk to me ... what's up ... name names and everything ... put it all on the table.

    :heart:

    OmowaleX - please dont go. You're posts are valuable to me, whether or not I agree is something else.. but you certainly provide viewpoints that I take to mind and heart - thus value.

    I have no idea what the rules are for moderators - but I'd hope that being impartial isnt one of them. I hope that they are moderators because they have proven to be dedicated to the site and what it stands for - but that shouldnt mean they cannot have their own opinions, and express them freely - be that in support or criticism of a topic. Diplomacy, sure - but gagging their voice, no.

    Again I ask, please dont go. If there was no discord on some of these topics, there would be little to learn. A mod agreeing with you or not, any political games played behind the scenes.. any back-biting or nitpicking.. please dont let any of these things prevent you from posting as you are - you have a valuable contribution that exceeds any pettiness, and I would miss your "voice"

    Peace Destee, beginning with this post is what "happened":


    http://destee.com/forums/showpost.php?p=484301&postcount=49

    What I expressed was a long-harbored sentiment, which had nothing to do with Brother OmowaleX's ongoing conflict with a certain member; and most definately wasn't intended to insult any one's intelligence.

    Brother OmowaleX,

    I know you know that I appreciate what you share with the family, and your passion for OUR issues absolutely amazes me, at times. Although I may not agree with everything you present, there's no way I would back-bite, nor nit-pick you for frivolous reasons. We all have opinions which keyboarding and freedom of speech allows us to relay to the masses; however, I refuse to be silenced JUST because I'm in a position to keep the peace. Keeping THE peace, and speaking MY peace are both paramount in keeping this community afloat, and because my sentiments don't mirror yours doesn't equate malevolence on my behalf. Again, this seems to be a recurring pattern with you: you have all the rights to voice your opinion and to summon a moderator whenever you feel violated, but lo & behold, g-o-d forbid I, of all people, have anything to add to the discussion; ironic, dontcha' think?

    For one, nothing BEGAN with the post you are referencing.

    In fact, this has been a LONG-STANDING ISSUE with Me on this site and it was YOU who suggested recently that I take a HIATUS.

    And nothing on my part here is "recurring". What IS "recurring" is another round of HATERS coming to this site and DISRUPTING the "peace" and YOU are not hardly playing a role in "keeping peace" even though that is how you see it.

    What you ARE doing is re-inforcing FEAR and HATRED in Black people against other non-white people many of which are a lot more than "2% Black".

    In fact, MOST of the BLACK PEOPLE who were taken from africa SPEAK NON-ENGLISH languages!

    You typically demonstrate a BLACK-ENGLISH-SPEAKING {{BIAS}} and how can one "moderate" when voicing "opinions" that are BIASED.

    I'm not the one here hung-up on the concept of RACE and neither are MOST BLACKS, Globally!

    Again, I share leave you to your IGNORANCE in your ARROGANCE....

    No need to name names when they have exposed themselves.

    Quite frankly, I am just DONE with debating with folks who do NOT DEMONSTRATE the UNITY of ALL BLACK PEOPLE that they claim to represent.

    If folks here are about bashing everyone who is NOT English-Speaking "Black" then I have nothing further to share here.

    If that's true, then why did you wait until I commented to complain?


    Hmmm, really? I recall advising you to "take a break, MOMENTARILY BEFORE POSTING IN A PARTICULAR DISCUSSION" before further dialoguing; never did I suggest you go embark on a hiatus, permanently.

    You announcing you're leaving if things don't go your way is recurring, Omowale. The world doesn't work that way, and it definately doesn't change in cyber-space. We're all people, and this universe has enough square mileage and air-space for all of our OPINIONS to float freely and agreeably in cyberspace.

    Ummm my thoughts aren't governable; therefore, I won't twiddle my thumbs and sit in silence while doling accolades to something I don't agree with. 2% or 75% Black, most of those Afro-Mexicans wouldn't defend us BLACKS against their fellow Mexicans. Pollyanna views of any one with a tan, and a broad nose won't massage the racial climate between many Afro-Latinos, Latinos and AA's.

    You seem very passionate. I would rather debate and discuss such matters in a relative thread.

    I don't see how what I say about their loyalty or lack of, can be felt by them all the way in cyber-space... down past the border in Mexico. Sorry, I have the same bloodline as they, so there's no need for me to disparage. Just pitching in my .02... *shrugs*

    I'm not either, but it is what it is.


    Is there something you want to talk about Omowale? It sure seems this is personal.

    Well, Black & Proud I am, regardless the hairstyle. I don't need to proclaim my "Blackness" to the world by kidnapping those who don't want to be kept to the Black race; that begets confusion, division, and many of the maladies already wreaking havoc in our community. All this high-siding sounds STRANGE coming from some one who supports any & everything with a tan, and is even enamored by the same "hairstyle" on droopy-eyed, middle-aged Latinas who basically took over a so-called "BM's" magazine. Ironic...
