    Hello Family,

    In our attempt to become a more unified people, should we exclude some Black folk? If so, which ones? I think it's important to know who's welcome to be embraced and who isn't, so we can all be on the same page, moving toward the same goal.

    Having said that, i've listed some things below that might be reason for exclusion.

    1. anyone who has ever told a lie
    2. anyone who has made a mistake
    3. anyone who is not college educated
    4. anyone who is poor
    5. anyone who has too much money
    6. anyone who is having sex outside of marriage
    7. anyone who has unprotected sex
    8. anyone who has sex with someone of the same sex
    9. anyone who engages in "weird" sex
    10. anyone who doesn't have sex (adults)
    11. anyone who uses drugs
    12. anyone who has ever been convicted of a crime
    13. anyone who is currently in prison
    14. anyone who has ever mistreated another Black person
    15. anyone who is not as conscious as you are
    16. anyone who enjoys the fruits of living in America
    17. anyone who hasn't traced their lineage
    18. anyone who has hair too nappy
    19. anyone who has hair not nappy enough
    20. anyone who has a perm
    21. anyone who does not think exactly like "we" do
    22. anyone who is too light skinned
    23. anyone who is too dark skinned
    24. anyone who doesn't have "African" features
    25. anyone who is skinny
    26. anyone who is overweight
    27. anyone who eats meat
    28. anyone who smokes
    29. anyone who drinks
    30. anyone who is raising children alone
    31. anyone who wears make-up
    32. anyone that has bad credit
    33. anyone that receives money from white folk (clients, jobs, etc.)
    34. anyone that gives money to white folk (college, taxes, water bill, etc.)
    35. anyone that believes in polygamy
    36. anyone that doesn't believe in polygamy
    37. anyone who believes in Christianity
    38. anyone who believes in Islam
    39. anyone who doesn't believe in God at all
    40. anyone who marries outside our race
    41. anyone who is racially mixed
    42. anyone who isn't a virgin when they marry
    43. anyone who can't articulate their thoughts, both verbally and written
    44. anyone who is blue collar
    45. anyone who is white collar
    46. anyone that lives in the suburbs
    47. anyone that lives in the projects
    48. anyone that doesn't "know" as much as you
    49. anyone who is different
    50. anyone that accepts any of the above people, when you don't

    That's all i can think of right now. Please add on, comment, etc.

    :heart:

    Very intresting Destee. I agree on many points. However there are several I would definitely disagree with.

    But to add to the list I would like to include those who are eurocentered that have a track record of undermining the will and ideology within the voice of the Black power base: such people as Ward Connerly, Shelby Steele, Clearance Thomas and Armstrong Williams.

    Degenerates who fit this profile are truly adversaries to the unification of Black people and should be recognized as so.



    IT TAKES ONE HNIC, SELLOUT OR TOM TO DESTROY
    WHAT TEN RIGHTEOUS BLACK MEN TRY TO BUILD.

    .....FLOW LIKE THAT

    On the average of things-I'll take a white or even a Black person that looks white that is on agreement with at least 85% of the things most aware Black people are down with- than someone that is Black(the Armstrong Williams, Ken Hamblin, Clarence Thomas..etc) that are NOT! Edit-that are VERY POSITIVE-forgot to add that!

    EXPULSION...

    any Black person who is anti-thethical to Black American progress.

    So it could be anyone who fits your list.

    I may be the only one to get your point so far, Destee, but I thank you for it. I love your use of irony. And I agree with you wholeheartedly: there is always a reason to exclude someone in the mind of another person. Let's drop it all and unify 100 percent.

    I really don’t think we should exclude any black person unless they are consciously working against the black community. I think that diversity is the key to survival. The same as unity is the key to survival. We all have something good that will help the black community. If we have diversity in thought, maybe we can cover all angles of the problem. I agree that there has to be some unity somewhere, but if we all thought alike on every single thing, I don’t think we would accomplish much of anything. We need diversity just as much as we need unity.

    Good lord yes, watz. I was going to respond to xxpanthaxx that I don't understand how he can't see that we're not even close to being unified - that it's evidenced on almost every thread. But I guess I don't need to do that, as it's already been proven for me right here and now. *sigh*
