    I have been involved with this thing called the World Wide Web for quite some time and has been privileged in reading and participating in great discussions and debates. I can’t and will not try to speak for other black cultures around the world but what I can get is that I am A black man in America. But for of those who may be reading this at this moment on the real, we still have a lot of work to do. Not trying to be an emotional drum beater (many of us are an emotional people usually react before a thing is well thought out) The thing is this, What Do We Really Want? What Are We As A People really trying to Accomplish and who do we want to get it from.
    Our whole story in this country has been a story of struggle. But remember we have to consider our story at one time we were not allowed to read even this message now! (at one time it was illegal to even to be able to read how crazy is that)
    We can go over other not so good things that has happen to us from the hands of others, but now we really have more opportunities that we have ever had before and for those who want to deny this there is something not quite right. What made me want to write this not quite sure but I felt that just the title alone should be taken in consideration. The reality of our existence on many levels is real; crime, mamas baby, daddy maybes, poverty and the list goes on. We even have whole cities that are majority black people including having political leaders.
    It is well known that we do have many different types of black folk educated blacks, ghetto blacks want to be white acting white the list goes way on. Well the purpose of this writing is at least for us to get a discussion on this subject and maybe even find some solid suggestions that we can build on. Hopefully this can be something of some use.

    Peace and Prosperity to all

    Well frankly, we don't all share a brain blood.

    Again, we don't all share a brain.
