Peace and Blessings Family,

It's a bit disconcerting to have a very focused purpose, as outlined in this thread title, yet the evidence begins to suggest otherwise.

If I logged on and saw a bunch of thread titles on the home page, with Latinos, Mexicans, Asians in them, I'd be concerned.

Likewise, I am just as concerned to see "White" in so many of our titles.

This community is not about White people or any other people, and I really hate it appearing that way, even remotely.

Yes, we're in the world with the rest of the people, and they will come up, but they should not overwhelm our discussions, about us.

Maybe it's the way yall are phrasing your titles. Maybe you can present them in a way, that helps maintain our focus. Maybe you can't.

Maybe we shouldn't go back and pull up all the threads with "white" in the title, right here and now, while inundated with such.

None of this is a rule violation, but we do have a purpose, and it's my job to make sure we maintain it ... and would appreciate your help ... if'n you don't mind.

Thanks.

:heart:

Sister Destee, I counted and there are 5 threads on the Home Page with "White" in the title.


Is that an excessive amount to you?

Sister Cherry ... i didn't even count ... but if that's all there is ... then yes ... for what i saw, prompted this thread.

I'm not one to usually wait until an issue is excessive, way out of order, etc.

I tend to deal with things long before they get to that level.

Love You!

Well, Sister Destee, I can understand and respect your position and viewpoint on it.

I just thought that "inundated" was rather strong word choice for only 5 threads out of almost 50 threads on the Home Page, is all.

However, I do see your intent.

I have a strong job to do here, and my words will occasionally reflect that ... :weights:

It's not just my intent Sister, but the very purpose of this community, years of collective effort.

I appreciate you seeing it with me ... The Community's Intent.

Thanks ... :grouphug:

my beautiful sister you know how they are,after almost four hundred years they STILL can't stand to see more than three of us talking together at a time[they're very afraid that something positive will come out of the meeting of the minds].

Wow , Collectively who are we ??

Are we all just 100 % black ?? Are we going by skin color alone ?? Or should we submit DNA ??

To discuss our socail issues, good and bad , to discuss our HUMAN history , to comprehend bibiblical or any religious doctrines or theories , to discuss an variety of topics in length , would you not have to cross the line and examine other races as most of us are blended at this point ??

How can the community grow when dominating an board as to what can be discussed and how it's phrased ??

I read the post in the link and it's about interpetation and POV. So those that think outside the box and want to expand in a broader sense are not welcomed to create a thread that has another subgroup in the title ??

I am just asking so I know.

I know you guys are just sooooooooooooo happy.
