    I recently saw a profile message from member who sought to insult me by calling me a ''EUROPEAN BORN AFRICAN''..lol.. but ohhhh how I love my culture, my language, and most importantly the SPIRIT! My middle name is OLATOKUNBO which translate in English to: 'my riches came from overseas''(note: the name is not given to uplift the west, but has more to do with the circumstances surrounding the child's birth) Children are precious gifts from the Gods in the Yoruba culture; so precious, that our naming ceremonies (when a child is born) lasts for 7 days!... all circumstances surrounding child's birth is taken into consideration when choosing a name/names for the child. Alas! what was directed at me (and other Africans who where born outside the continent) as an insult, is actually a complement... a name given to me by my great-grandmother who used this opportunity to send a message to me in Spirit. Oh how I love the SPIRIT!

    ASE, ASE, ASE!

    Thanks for sharing that bit of culture with us about naming ceremony's. There are some who do not realize that a name is more than just a bunch of letters put together that sound & look "cool". And once I started to realize this, it is why I put a lot of time into choosing the most appropriate name for myself to change to.
    As for the insult to you, I would guess it was more from mis-education than from malice. In any case, you took something negative and made it into an opportunity to educate.

    iF YOU CHOOSE TO EXPOSE THAT PERSON TELL THE ENTIRE STORY, NOT JUST YOUR VERSION TO MAKE YOU LOOK GOOD!
    THERE ARE THREE SIDES TO A STORY.
    YOUR VERSION ,THEIR VERSION AND THE TRUTH!
    EVERYONE HAS GOOD AND BAD QUALITIES ABOUT THEMSELVES!
    THE DUALITIES OF GOOD AND EVIL THE DEVIL AND GOD!
    IT IS POSSIBLE THAT YOUR SPIRITS IN THIS LIFETIME DIDN'T COLLAB WELL!

    Thank you,
    The intent was malicious, the post below yours is proof. Said member makes it a point to ask all Africans she comes in contact with if they are 'African born', 'European or America born'. So in future; if the person choses to disagree with the member's views on African culture/history(e.g gays in africa) or any other warped conclusions pulled out of the darkest part of her anatomy, we are hit with 'oh y'al ain't the real Africans anyways' or 'the white man has brainwashed you'....lol.

    The post below is mine be a real woman and say so!
    We are all in all.
    My comment was not malciious but real.
    Sweety we are all different in personality.
    People will disagree to agree.
    That is not a reason to go back and fourth with threatening emails and nasty comments.
    It makes you appear to be dillusional and psychotic.
    Considering the fact that you have never met them in person .
    I think you're cool in your own way but when someone doesn't agree with you, you than turn on them and become outraged.
    That appears to others as a threat on their individuality.
    This is cyber space so maybe certain things come off the wrong way.
    COMMUNICATION VERBALLY IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!
    SOMETIMES TRUE EXPRESSION NEEDS TO BE HEARD!

    Don't forget to include your comments as well.
    Caught red handed ? lol my goodness u are wayy over the top with this internet fueding!
    If it was a secret I would have never posted it on a public website lol.
    The same website you claim you despise but continue to lurk daily.

    Please enjoy ur vacation!
    Life is too short to stress about people you don't even know!
    I never lied about anything.
