This is not the white man's land, nor are they the only producers of the things you guys have mentioned. But, it's clear at this point that this forum is not what I thought it was. I'm not here to worship white people or beg for their respect, so I will respectfully bow out. Maybe I can find a black forum where the members aren't afraid to stand on their own without bowing or catering to whites. If I'm even talking to blacks here. Seems more like controlled opposition to me.

Yeh, that's fine by me.
There's not one person on this thread you haven't insulted for no good reason and there's no one here that worships white people or begs for respect.
Come back after you grow up.

This thread smells. Don't know why we keep falling for this double talk like fake news, calling yourself "black" yet you want the light shining brightly on what so called "white" people are doing.

Didn't this thread start out about someone looking for a house? lol

4 four pages later they're no closer to moving lol

smh

I'm in the process of searching for a home, but there's one thing that's giving me pause. White people. Why the hell should I stay here and continue to tolerate their racism? Why should I contribute to an economy and a society that doesn't care much, if anything about blacks? Why help them, which essentially gives them more power than they deserve? Secondly, life is too short to fight the same battle that we have been since the country was founded. Right now I'm a bit torn, on whether or not I should setup permanently here in America or just leave.

So, I'm curious, why do we continue to put up with this when we don't have to? Blacks play a significant role in driving the US economy, yet what do we get in return? Why not take our money elsewhere... Curious to hear your reasoning, do we really think that marching is going to change racist people? Is it worth staying here in America, if so why?
Sure, leaving the USA is one option for some African Americans and the reason I say that is because you need money to move and everyone who might want to leave, will find it difficult to if they don't have the resources to make that happen.

And, you had better know that where you're going is a better place for AA's and not assume that just because we may all be Black that we are accepting of each other. And you'd better hope that the country you want to relocate to will have open borders and accept you in masse.


But, for me, why "run away" when we still have some constitutional rights and freedoms that give us an ability to change things where we are? We may not have come here voluntarily, but we built this nation, fought and died for the right to be treated as deserving citizens and to receive equitable treatment. Some of us may not want to give up the fruits of our labor or the labor of our ancestors, or forget those who fought and died for us and whose bones are buried in the very soil that they toiled over and called "home." We have spent generations honing the skill to know our enemies that are brutal but not that smart and I won't give them the satisfaction when they try to make it so unbearable here for us--or so they would like to think--that I would choose to leave. Somehow that smells to me like a coward and that, I'm not.

That's just me...
It's like choosing your own poison; to fight the beast in the center ring or fight on the fringes. For that's the choice because there is not one part of the world the Neo-liberal racist ideology has not touched.......or deserted once there.
Peace,

Learning to navigate life in a white ruled country takes knowledge, wisdom and understanding. Blessed are they that live in the white world without being of the white world. It begins with taking the devil off the planet (which is essentially taking white people out of your focus). When your focus is on you and not on them, you can begin making strides to a better existence. When you allow things to occupy your attention, anyone or anything can be that devil.

You can go anywhere and face discrimination. You can go anywhere and find poverty. You still have to learn how to master them.

Peace

Speaking of well mannered, I was called a coward and a liar based off of my original post which did nothing more than ask why we choose to stay here. You guys set the tone, respect is a two way street. You have to give it if you want it in return. Or, we can be bluntly honest with one another. I'm fine with either. Anyone suggesting that we need white people, really need to realize what the rest of world is capable of. That's not a healthy mentality to have.
As another member here clearly stated. Four (4) pages and four (4) days later you're no closer to attaining your dream of home ownership yet you're still here trying to convince the membership that you have no use for the race that produces everything in your existence.

They certainly don't produce everything in my existence and I never said it was my dream. I already proposed my solution, which is for me. I have no interest in telling other people how to feel or what they should do. All I wanted to know was why the supposedly black people of this forum, and blacks in general, have any interest in living among white Americans. After seeing your posts, I have my answer. A lot of you feel reliant upon white people. In fact, a lot of your posts mirror the sentiments of white supremacists. That's not my mentality though, so there's never us seeing eye to eye. Which is fine, we don't have to agree.

Feeling good today fam...just been reading a couple of books. I think Dennis Kimbro's "Daily Motivations for African American Success" is one of the best motivational books on the market. This book has motivation for each day of the year on each page and all of these relate to your own Blackness. No matter what you're experiencing there's something in that book you could draw from. ✊
