What is it?
The purpose of this community has none. Obviously the value of it is determined by the consciousness of each individual. If it serves as nothing more than a portal of information that is needed by all people regardless of their level of consciousness, then it has served its purpose for that individual and thus what had/has no purpose suddenly has one for that individual. To state that this community "has a purpose" is to place it in a box and obviously this can not be done. As such, the purpose of this community is defined by the "intent" of the people who come here and the level of consciousness they may or may not be on.

Keita, this is only to get feedback on my PM's to you. Tell me something when you can!..............Clyde
Brother Knowledge Seed ... you are an intelligent young man, and i'm going to trust you to determine for yourself, what you think this community's purpose and being is ... since you've not taken heed to any of my previous and numeroous explanations surrounding such.
Just shoot your best shot, and if it's wrong, you'll be the first to know.
WELL I THINK THE PURPOSE OF THIS COMMUNITY SHOULD BE SHARING KNOWLEDGE OR INFORMATION THAT CAN BUILD AND NOT TEAR DOWN OUR UNITY. OF COURSE THERE ARE DIFFERENT LEVELS OF CONSCIOUSNESS, BUT EVEN WITH THE LOW CONSCIOUSNESS LEVELS SOMETIME ARE MORE RESPECTFUL TOWARD OTHERS THAN THE SO CALLED HIGH AND MIGHTY ONES. WE ALL SHOULD HAVE RESPECT TOWARD ALL OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS AND OTHERS WHEN THEY SHOW THE SAME KIND OF RESPECT.
THERE ARE SOME HERE THAT WILL PROVOKE OTHERS WITHOUT ANY LOGICAL REASON AND THEIR ONLY CONCLUSION IS I DISAGREE.
THEREFORE, WHEN THIS HAPPENS TO A PERSON OR TO THE FAMILY AS A WHOLE WE SHOULD DEFEND OURSELVES.
AGAIN, TREAT YOUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS AND OTHERS THE WAY THAT YOU WISH TO BE TREATED.
PEACE, MYSTERY DOORS!
it's right on the masthead....
"Loving, Encouraging, Embracing, Teaching and Building With Black People"
this is at the top of every page.
Well, as you all might realize, black people have a difficult time warming up to each other when we first meet in person, yet I am sure that many of us want so desperately to get along and treat each other with love and respect. For me, Destees is a place where I can warm up to my people without feeling intimidated at first meeting them.
I absolutely love everyone at Destees, there is not one person I don't love here. If I were to meet the entire Destee family in person, I would absolutely have none of those "heebie jeebies" I first have when first meeting with my people.
One other issue black people have is, we tend to misunderstand and misjudge each other a whole lot, we are for the most part harder on each other than we are anyone else. Although there are some slight minor gliches, Which Destee trouble shoots ever so awsomely, still, Destees manages to magnificantly, bring out who we as black people really strive to be towards each other and what we strive to represent as a People and a community.
If this has to be a guessing game, then I don't want to play.
