    Into our own communities!:mad:
    Is what this so called hispanic friend of mine said!
    Man she pissed me off !
    Like the asians being in china town, or the hispanics living in hispanic neighborhoods and oh the blacks in the projects!
    I told her the gov seperates by culture and race and it was predertermined.
    Everything here that is not black has been catered to!
    We are the last to know and the last to receive even though we were the first ones brought here!
    Then she goes it's because we have money, no it's because the gov gives you opportunities that they are afraid to give us because of our education and strength,knowledge and understanding of how to make it!
    She said well we came over and worked really hard! I said yeah and we were stolen! Free will is everything! Where's the catering for us? Everything is in spanish but there is nothing to accomadate the african and african americans! You can come over here dirt poor an have everything handed to you but we have to have a degree or a profession or some type of scholorship to get here straight from africa.
    Then she goes on and says well I'm part indian and we suffered too!And she said it was just my opnion not a fact!:mad:
    I said baby not nearly as much and today we still suffer!
    I was so upset I had to walk away, seeing that I am at work!:mad: :mad: :mad:
    She is taking a social science course on this and obviously has never read behind the bullchit books!

    Well I dont agree with that at all
    I think that if you come across the border
    Yes there are some opportunities
    Yet the jobs that most of them get
    Blacks arent willing to work them and not for the wages
    My mother when she came over her-Worked cleaning clothes
    For only 2.00 and hour-So i cant see everything being handed
    I see that there is a crisis going on in minority communities in general
    I think that blacks have it just as bad as latins
    If not the latins have it worst cause they are changing the law
    So most of the families that have been here for years
    Might all be sent back across the border-Laws are changing
    I would never say that blacks are in projects and things of that nature
    I would go to point out the government basis society as a whole
    On there gender/race everything in between
    Yet too be honest there are dam near as many whites on welfare
    In jail and everything else in between as blcks if not more in the jail system
    Its just not what you hear cause America is a white potrait of society
    This is the way alot of people have been raised that whites are always successful and I see these types of things everyday

    Yes the browns-blacks us as a whole suffer today
    There is not one cultural in todays society that isnt suffering
    From the economy to diseases we are all suffering

    Much Love Sis

    Understandable but if you are a foreigner in america and you cannot read or write and you are working for 2 bucks an hour you have to acceptit but you are free of will to be here!
    We've been slaves long enough so why would we want to work for 2 bucks a hour and we can read and write and we were born here!
    That's bullchit and you know it!
    They actually look down on us!
    You come to tell me that you don't think that we are the least catered too?
    Where's the translations of the many tribes of AFRICA? Hell they even have french,polish and czechloslavakian translations before you see ours!
    I was just passed up for financial aid and my friend is hispanic same number in houshols not making that much less than me and she got a free ride!
    Tantrum I understand you are mixed but we can't make excuses for facts!
    Oh and when the entire continent of AFRICA is destroyed by aids then you can tell me again who's suffering the most from disease!

    First off the funny thing to me is
    That threads like this will bolster seperation
    From the standpoint of multicultural people
    And those of african descent
    It amazes me that so many people as yourself have so many complaints
    Yet do nothing to change what is going on but talk talk talk
    Yes my mother did choose to come over here-Just like most others
    sHE Chose to take those jobs and beg for money
    Thats all races included for that comment all races have begged for money anyway-I see your point but at the same time
    People as yourself posting thread after thread
    About we need to do this that and letting every little thing
    A white-black-latin or whoever doesn't solve anything
    It brings out sides of people that are reflected on this site
    I have love for every race there is regardless of what people think
    Brush it off and do something about it stop complaining

    I've done my part and I'm still doing!
    That's the issue here!
    I'm not trying to argue with my own!
    Since you are biracial I can see why you will not stand behind one race!
    Thanks !

    I was not looking for an argument,especially not here!
    This bothered me, to the point where I wanted to slap the chit out of her for being so stupid!
    I was not looking for a debate with you about the the black and latino struggle because there is no comparison!
    You cool tantrum, but this was my experience today and I wanted to share !:bye:

    It is not that we seperate ourselves,in my opinion, but that some of us believe the stereotypes of other people.The Negritos never hated the "yellow" asians when they settled there,they only accepted them for who they were.The reason why we may seperate ourselves is to hold on to a culture or identity that mainstream society wants to take away so that we can "assimilate".

    Cursed Heart......

    Don't let her draw from your strength. I think that's why many women of other nationalities hang aroung BW, is to pick up on some street smarts and game. As soon as she wisens up, she'll probably use that against you, and ask: "When are Blacks gonna get their ish together?" Yes other races were oppressed, but they oftentimes pass off as white, so the burden is darn near erased. We can't do that, and I personally don't want to. She is making excuses for a racist system that she probably is engaging in behind your back. I would never let her know another thing about me ever again.
