    as a people we talk about how we suffer but at times when someone steps up to the plate and says lets look at why we suffer and then the solution and how we can put that solution into practice it seems some of us are unwilling to participate, why is this?

    i put up a good thread on here a few days ago and hardly anyone responded, why?

    Most are willing to help . But when you have those who come in the name of themselves , Mess things up for other's , Remember every brother is not a brother and every sister is not a sister . And its all about how you come at people .. Just because a person is a Nubian isn't a reson to support him or her . Because the jails are full of Nubians of have gotten over on other Nubians . This why one should beware of those who come in the name of the Brown / Black Thang . Thats just my take on it .

    maybe the thread was not as good as you thouht it was.
    why are you putting blame on everyone else?
    where is your role in this?

    i dont agree with that. We as a people have got to learn to respect one another thats the way for us to get out of our suffering, as long as we divide each other we gonna keep suffering. If you and anyone else come across a brotha/sistah thats not supportive of their people you cant change them but try and teach them different

    You can't teach stubborn grown folks. You have folks that want to spout off about being an individual, etc. ,etc.

    You can't teach colorblind adults, but children are much more open to reason.

    You're more then welcome to disagree with me ok . But why look for a re-spond if you already have you mind made up . By the way your another one of those who play on words . No way have I said not to support the Nubian family . I Said look out for those who come in the name of themselves . If you feel you should just support Nubian because he / she is a Nubian Then so be it , It on you . Only a fool wouldn't check out ANY keyword here ANY ORGANIZATION before giveing them money .

    its not about money so much but about making change, we as a people are at a crossroads as far as our place in the western world we no longer have the luxery to hate one another in place of our real reason for anger which is the ill treatment we have recieved at the hands of white people we need to heal each other now in order for us to respect one another and get out of this oppression even when you come across a brotha/sistah that are brainwashed dont waste your time being angry with them but simply talk to them calmly showing them how we get treated and why its so important for us to make a change and how to make that change , they wont change on the spot be in time when they start to see certain things they will remember what you said and they will start to think and do differently. Remember never waste your time arguing cause that will jus make them more ignorant to the truth, just try and show them the way

    im not sayin all the black people you talk to will wake up but atleast some of them will, they might not agree with you straight away but maybe in time. Im not sayin the white man has completly dominated us cause for everything they have thrown on us we have stood strong and we have achieved alot. But they are still our oppressor and the main cause for our struggle, i respect your oppinion but i just feel its time for us to heal each other, we coming at a time when we need to ask serious questions and make things happen as a people
