    When I talk about white people I am not talking about in general because I am 'cool' with a lot of white people in my everyday life. I am talking about the governments etc. So no offense to any nice whitefolks. :em0100:

    When I speak of white folks, I'm talking about them as a whole, and I am also cool with a few of them.
    I'm sorry, but as a whole, history & experience has taught me not to trust them. If this is wrong, then I learned it from the best; them.

    I guess what i'm trying to say is no hard feelings. And I too have reserves when it comes to them as far as trust.

    Please help me understand.....

    Please explain to me what do you mean by "I am cool with a lot of white people". Does being "cool" with white people promote justice on planet earth?


    And please explain to me, what is "nice" white folks and why you do not want to offend them. What have these "nice" white folks done where you don't want to offend them? Are they special? Unique? Yes? How and in what way?

    If I may Brother RA

    What is nice.

    Is when I meet those whom I have met and know.
    That really look out for my best interest
    ( for me and mine ) as I try to project.

    Into my Career, My Finances.
    My Legals, My Family. A Better Day.

    If you believe in yourself I do know this.
    I do not believe that everyone is out to hurt.

    That would mean I would have
    To think that ( brothers ) my brothers
    Are just worthless
    And that thought will hurt.

    So I keep it plain.
    I treat Every Woman, and Every Man.
    Like I want to be treated.

    If they can't reach that. see that .
    Be that. Understand that or know.
    Then I am somewhat concerned.
    Because regardless of color.
    There is something they yearn.

    So I do not want to offend anyone.

    Everyone is special in their own special way.
    So I would be judging them
    Incorrectly if I look and see the way
    They dress, the color, the eyes or the skin
    I don't want to judged that way
    By the skin that I'm in.

    Unique yes unique
    I find may folks.
    My friend with blue eyes
    Has some thoughts that he invokes.
    From experience, knowledge , his education.
    His folks.
    He shares those ideas
    That help my success.
    So the knowledge is novel
    But the friendship is best.

    It baffles my mind. i am educated in fact
    I don't see
    I try to understand the reasons and fact
    but when added up Why is the disconnect real
    It isn't anyone's color
    It may be how you live.

    Color belongs in a box. Of Crayons!
    Not taking up my time useless ponder
    Wasted effort splitting hairs on a dime

    I just was not
    Raised to hate.
    Born to hate
    Causes ulcers
    Makes one sad
    Drains the energy's
    Blows the mind
    Is for the shallow
    I don't have time

    Africa is a Nation of LOVE
    Our Ancestors Fate.
    Our Fortune
    Greater than Gold

    Love started there
    and one day I hope to return
    All the love that it born me
    From my ancestors bones.

    To someone!
    To something
    Somewhere in life
    First to step up
    They will get it
    I have abundance in my life.


    When I speak of white people
    I speak english

    Son of Ra,

    You are correct, you did not receive an answer to this:

    Please help me understand.....
    Please explain to me what do you mean by "I am cool with a lot of white people". Does being "cool" with white people promote justice on planet earth?


    At least not from the thread starter, no one can deny this, and of course, Brother HODEE, being polite, chose to answer indirectly and I can respect that. Now, you may not accept my answer to the question, and rightfully so, it is not coming directly from the starter, smalllday.

    Being cool with white people will not promote justice on planet earth, because justice will not come to planet earth through Humanism. If we think that it will, we are fooling ourselves into a sense of false security, its as simple as that. Mankind is incapable of maintaining perpetual justice, whether Black, Brown, Red, Yellow, or White....Peace IN Son of Ra, my brother friend, for real.
