    Are you also prepared to be candid and honest about what too many black folk are into ala 2010?

    As my mom always used to say:

    'Sometimes it's better to get the bad news from a friend of the family-!'

    In particular I say and write this to the afrocentrists in the mix:

    I. e., long overdue for you to take off your red/black/green shades, and see today's folk for who they are, as in--just a bunch of flawed human beings, and on the Malcolm tip--we need to get them to fess up to their own self indulgent b. s., too...

    Another one from a friend (not foe)...

    I think just like any other people who have been through rough economic times, and political BS, we are skeptical, and burned out and most are trying to make ends meet, now how do I feel about black people?
    I love my people and the welfare of every single person of African descent and thepropsperity of their children is on my mind night and day

    Umm... I'm keeping my RBG bandana... and I still realize that not just black people are flawed, but EVERYONE. Since I am not Christian or Muslim, I don't ascribe to the thinking that everyone must be perfect, and if they are not then everyone has sinned and fallen short of the glory of the god.

    We are not meant to be perfect. You can't learn and grow from being perfect. Perfect people never make mistakes, and making mistakes is where a lot of your life's lesson come from. I believe we are innately beautiful as we are, not innately sinful or flawed. Part of the beauty of who we are, is how we respond to the life lesson before us, and how we grow from that. What we view as a 'flaw' might just be opportunity for change and growth. The real 'flaw' is that many of fail to see it that way, and we are scared to see or acknowledge our so-called flaws.

    Do you really wanna know?




    Some of us have become more racist and bigoted than yt. Can't get along with anyone outside the race and can't get along with each other. Either folks are colorstruck and cant relate to anyone darker or folks are colorstruck and detest anyone lighter.

    No medium. No middle ground. Increasingly intolerant, xenophobic, insecure, and totally dependent on capitalism as if we cannot get along without mr charlie.

    just my honest opinion.

    :lol:

    The last two comments are funny.

    You can't say black people aren't 'colorful.'



    I'll take you all. There might be a good in it all yet.

    Maybe I'll keep Condi Rice and Clarence Thomas too. I been thinking of kicking them out of the black race for bein an 'uncle tom.'

    But variety is the spice of life and there is a good in all.


    On 2nd thought, maybe I'll just keep Condi. Clarence still gotta go.

    Well living and working in the Caribbean has changed my mind about how I feel about black people. To all who make the assertions that black people cannot be racist, go work/live in the Caribbean then come back and holla at me..lol.

    I think we are highly incohesive, very feudal , and too individualistic to get anywhere. You can fast forward 50 yrs and I don't think things will be better, they will likely be worse. We find reason to disagree, we have little vision and drive, we are extremely carnal(sex driven), grossly ignorant by choice, and completely a laughing stock. Overall we are largely doomed with very little hope for the future as the current generation is just flapping in the wind if you ask me. We also settle for very little and have very little understanding of how other dominate us in our everyday affairs. Many if not most of us also still have somewhat of a massa complex toward whites. We will massacre ourselves in Chi Town, Philly, DC, LA, New Orleans,etc but as soon as yt shows up, we lay our guns down and put our hands where he can see them. Then we go upstate and rape one another only to hit the streets 5 yrs later with HIV we will kindly share with the community. I think we are on life support at best. We also think silence will solve our issues. Suicide is the third leading cause of death among black men between 15-24. When the youh are giving up in this way, truly u are doomed. http://http://www.healthyplace.com/depression/minorities/suicide-among-blacks/menu-id-68/
