    hmmm...

    as i look down deep, i realize that my purpose isn't readily apparent. i live...therefore, i am. NOT TRUE. but, like you, i get lost in thought each time i think about it. GOD gave man a purpose--the edification of the FATHER. beyond that, i haven't endeavored to understand.

    thank you for putting me on the path to better understanding.

    nice read.

    Your purpose....

    You are what you are...in a whole a human being. for if you distinguish yourself by prejudices then you are nothing. Be it black and crippled...black and indian...black and african...black and rich. You...my...our...strong black men are to be. Your purpose in life is what you make it. God teaches us to do good. To withstand all that we go through for it makes us a better person. And next to a black woman...I think a black man is a wonderful human being. For if they are strong...they turn their hatred into good. They look at those who discriminate them and treat others with respect. They look at those who are scared of them because of their color and make sure they don't do the same to others. You see...a strong black man makes a place in this world, makes himself known in a good way without force. And stands out for the world to see. So a white man truly only tries to strip him of his idenitity and dignity....do to envy. But the world is forever changing...and constantly rearranging. there wil always be a difference in every human being. No matter what, who, when or where we are.

    What you stated is very true.
    However, we continue to divide ourselves
    Black People PERIOD! not the black rich, the black Africans
    BLACK PERIOD! white is white ALL OVER THE WORLD.
    The world is changing constantly TRUE, but
    the one thing that has remained the same for FAR too long
    RACIAL INJUSTICE to the BLACK MAN.
    I don't and I won't hate ANYONE. It's their
    ACTIONS I hate/dislike and disagree with,whichever
    or all.
    I agree with your comment that we continue to love
    others NO MATTER how we're MISTREATED.
    But we have ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEM MISTREATING
    and HATING EACH OTHER. We envy one another for numerous reasons,
    which are VERY APPARENT
    COLOR
    JOB
    HOUSE
    CLOTHES
    CAR
    EDUCATION and so many trivial things. This is our disease and we're
    DYING.. It's time for a CURE.
    I don't teach my son and daughter to hate, but I do arm them with
    the knowledge of what's REAL, it's one of the weapons they'll need
    to survive in this White World.

    Thanks for your feedback:) Coco

    You have made very valid points and i couldn't agree with you more on many of the things that you said. But the only one that i can say is wrong is the racial injustice which in a sense is a crime against us inflicted by our society and the government. How can we change that. I haven't a clue. I was always tell my black male friends. Just stay strong. If you don't want trouble don't go getting into any...and if it comes to you...make sure you got your RIGHTS covered. That's all I can say about that. But in regards to us hating each other. envying each other. I don't just find that in our race. I find that in all races. We just make ours obvious. Kind like that joke on Kings of Comedy. White people say..I hope nobody doesn't get into my seat. Black people say...I wish somebody would get in my seat. We make it obvious...known. Have you noticed unless its really big...they would show a black shooting on the news before a white. they assume black kids are on drugs before the white. They assume white kids will succeed before black. that is the way of our society...but things are constantly changing. they look at our race and say...ANIMAL. Are we doing anything to change that...trying...and i pray that someday...we will. And maybe one day when i have a son or daughter...they don't have to see or go through a lot of things I've seen or been through...

    I didn't repost this to discuss, but you asked yourself that question, now go and ask a Black man........
    It's so much more deeper than that.......it's real....you have to live it to understand it.....no disrespect intended.....I know there are good white people out there just as there are bad.....standing up for my Black man doesn't mean I'm putting you or anyother white person down........ I'm just aware and staying alert......nothing wrong with that is there? Let me be clear on your thoughts.... are you saying these condition only exist for some black men? And it's not a question of fitting in...being left alone and allowed to live equally as other men.....EVERY black men, not few!

    Madd Sistahly Love :heart:
