going above and beyond
- Feb 9, 2001
Hey Bro. @Perfection, yes, I will try to be more specific with the question I raised. You know, sometimes, when I read people's comments, I might make assumptions that I understand where you are coming from. But, for some reason, when I read your statement about Black men and consciousness, I paused. The reason for my pause was, I wondered whether everyone reading you automatically knew what you meant by it through some common understanding, or framed their reaction based on their own awareness which could be different for different people.Hello Queenie...I am very well...thank you. I do hope you are well too
I don't mind at all going back over a few things with you. I am so pleased it captured your interest.
I'm not sure exactly where you would like for you and I to begin because your question is a bit broad. And that's ok too but I don't wanna be long winded and not really get to what you're really asking.
May I ask if you could narrow it down some when you have a moment please? Thanks.
Hmmm...conscious Black men and their perception of Black women. I guess my question is, how does a Black man become conscious and what is it about him that distinguishes him from a Black man who could call Black women by those names? Could a Black man argue that he could call Black women by those names and still think he is conscious? If you don't believe so, why not?
I know...more than one question but I hope this makes more sense. Let me know if it doesn't and I'll try again.
