I mean no disrespect to you or anyone here but. after certain issues, germain to the African American and global African community; are explained and rehashed over and over month after month sometimes we have a tendency to post a thread regarding something as though it is...uhm ..

fresh!

IMHO and in the anlysis of the term conservative

the NOI(who has run from the FOI republicans for office in the past)
the Ausar Auset community
Isrealite Nations for Jesus
and Isrealite Hebrews

are all to the American definiton conservative

1 they believe in pulling oneself up from their
bootstraps,
2 reg religious service
3 good grades for children in school and parent involvement with school staff
4 anti gay
5 anti abortion
6 anti big government
7 capitalist
8 and free enterprise

So Black folks realy have no hangup about that term if it was meant to intimidate,
however what is intimidating,
is mentioning how the sister looks and disregading the number of sisters here at Destee, and the numerous Black women in politics in either party,
who worked hard to make white folks realize they are not sex objects
and should be judged by their wisdom, skills and talents and that appearance has no criteria in regards to their campaign or platform.

Now what seems IMHO to be insulting and like a Juan Williams statement,
is to come to a Black discussion boad, that more than the other 6 discussion boards on the internet,
discusses real issues concerning the Black community in detail,
to not present her platform regarding
any issue what so ever,

and please no links.
What is your understanding of her agenda and platform?
 
Full Speed,

Not much time for my own thoughs right now (on a short break). Here is a link to consider.

You (or anyone else) could just point me to a resource that would give what you could consider and accurate representation of what Liberation Theology REALLY is so that I could read it for myself and not have to take the word of the Sean Hannity's of the world. If you could explain it that would be fine, but please provide a resource if you choose to go that route.

Star Parker for Congress

I do--think she is a beautiful woman too, but you don't think that this might be the very reason she has been selected to help the Conservatives, black and white? Like Ankhur said earlier, is this a ploy [not per se of you] but of politicians to insult black women in our intelligence. Are we being manipulated for a cause. I don't follow politics that well but, I think I saw Steele with Palin on television and now it seems that he is like, a front runner for pooling in black support. I'm wondering why black people think this is a good thing to do this now, of all times. I wonder what the views are of Colin Powell right now.

Thank you for the link brother. It was brief, but I read what was there. If you have more, I would appreciated it. If time permits, later today I will look for more on it myself. It's an attempt, he says "to teach people how to be both unapologetically black and Christian at the same time."


I have been unapologetically black all my life. I have been unapologetically Christian since I became a Christain in 14 years ago. The concept of Black liberation theology, on the surface, seems man made. It seems to contradict Act 17:26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

But, what I will look for are specific verses and the context inwhich they are used to determine if they are used correctly of incorrectly.
