    Can caucasoids not be allowed to come to Destee, a peace haven for black people, to vent their frustrations on us? Though we may disagree on all things with one another, I think all black people from different walks of life can agree that when caucasians are allowed to vent on us, it's very reminiscent of when they were allowed all power over our people(though that hasn't fully changed) to vent their frustrations because of their own shortcomings in their life.

    Yes, the ignore feature is in effect, but I believe it's unfair that they'd even be allowed to start a "race war" in such a place. Just as I can ignore someone starting up gender war discussion about black women or men, it still shouldn't be allowed, and isn't, from what I've witnessed; so can caucasians not be allowed to "race war" with us, in our own forums, under the guise of simply critiquing human behavior, because their ill behavior is pointed out?

    I'm only wondering, asking, and such, and not critiquing the site or its Moderartors. I still dig this place. :toast:

    Is it free? Because all too often, it feels more free for some than others. We aren't allowed to gender war with one another here, which I agree with, but caucasoids can race war with us in a forum all our own, meant for building with one another and not tearing down by those who've never known our struggle?

    In regards to that "short stock mentality", yeah that's essentially the "short end" of it in a "nutshell".

    As I recently stated in another thread I can't get too deep into it without the risk of getting banned. Years ago Dr Welsing summed it up in a lecture series dealing with sports analogies.

    We invite into our home, our sacred spaces to the point we have no spaces left to ourselves.

    Absolutely none. I think that's where I was getting on about excluding within our own race as to who's black and such, because it always seems we're the inviting party, trying to prove to people we aren't dangerous, but then it blows up in our face, because they still call us animals, but now they have access to things we only had access to.

    It's like we're always trying to prove our humanity to those who'll never see it, and I really don't like that feeling.

    True, but it seems unfair that someone not black is allowed to vent on us, on our forums because they don't like what's written about their own race here and how they mistreat us, just as it's unfair for someone not a black woman to constantly speak of the ills of black women, and the same for black men.

    Should that not be reigned in? Isn't that race warring?

    No Sister ... no one willing to engage respectfully, according to our rules ... will be denied access.

    Respectful engagement is our only requirement for participation.

    One's race, gender, political or spiritual affiliation, sexual orientation, height, weight, or any other thing matters.

    Abiding by our rules is the only thing that matters ... and if they are doing that ... they are welcome.

    If you have more questions, just ask.

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    Destee

    But how is venting ones frustration about blacks on a site made for blacks, at all, respectful? Is it not just as disrespectful as gender warring? I'm not saying who you have to ban or not, but the behavior itself seems no different than gender warring which isn't allowed.

    That is kind of like what I felt when I posted about 36 people shot in 36 hours and was presented with a link about closed schools..
