    Why as all the elders on here say
    Do we keep starting threads that seperate everyone on here?

    I here all that respond to the threads
    Me myself included its always the same peopel
    Always the same people that respond to them
    Always the same people that argue and bicker
    Or the copp out line "debate"

    What does wonder why a white man dates a black woman
    Or vice versa help anyone on here for real?????

    What does starting thread about light skin people and darkskin people
    even come about if we know what it will turn into?????

    We cant be trying to learn from each other
    Starting all of these interracial threads constantly
    Or threads related to sex and all off the wall types of things....

    Everyday it seems a new thread is started by
    New and old members that looks too me are meant to seperate
    Individuals not close gaps at all.....

    I have no beef with people on here
    But I understand these is a Black owned site
    Yet why do we bash whites on here so much????

    Why do we blame them for everything??? If you say
    We dont blame them for everything you havent read
    Alot of these post I have otten caught up
    In these threads also but I checked myself
    Got back into reality and realized that whites arent our
    Downfall it will be us that creat the downfall as we go
    Against each other in these threads......

    I feel like if you have a problem with someoen
    On here let them know just too let you be
    Or speak with a moderator and hopefully change will come!!!!

    Good questions

    Tantrum, I, for one, am glad that you started this thread because I am confident that people will speak to it. When they do, I hope you are openminded enough to understand where others are coming from when they start threads.

    The world doesn't rotate around any single way of thinking. It's because of our diversity that man has evolved to where we are. What might not make sense to you and seem to be divisive, may be someone else's idea of important and necessary to discuss openly. Even through arguments and disagreements, we can sometimes find viable solutions to problems. If we all thought alike, we wouldn't have as much spark and creativity in what gets done.

    There's an old saying, be careful for what you ask for, because you may not be prepared to handle the answer.

    Peace,
    Queenie :spinstar:

    I cant say that I agree with that
    I think the truth in the answers
    Will reveal that mostly all on here
    Think some what a like
    Cause if not there would be a broader
    Range of topics that would come to the forum

    I can see your point. But i still think that, although Black people here may be similar in the way we think, we still do not all think alike, vis-a-vis the disagreements contained in many of the threads.

    How much broader, Tantrum, do you think we need to be in terms of range of topics? I think we pretty much a wide range of issues but maybe you see something lacking that I don't. Please give me some examples of what you think isn't or hasn't been covered by us in terms of past, current and future events as they relate to Black people.

    I dont see much community threads
    Like what is going on in everyday society
    I really dont see many political threads which I think really effects us
    See tons of threads about africa yet nothing about whats going on in the US
    From what I know pretty sure over 70% if noy more
    Of the people on here were born and raised in the US
    Topics such as aids thats in the Black society
    The violence in todays black homes
    Rap with in the black community
    Just things we can arm ourselves with in our everyday lives
    Thats all I am saying

    How about starting with the man in the mirror....

    Heck, for that matter does it include reducing our darker hued sistahs
    to being worthy of nothing more than a "one nighter" ???

    Yeah...we love you too..."brutha"... :rolleyes:

    Preach on Brother Tantrum!!!

    I feel you Bruh. The topics about how big do you like a woman's butt to be, do women have an orgasm, all that kind of stuff. I think it should be rarely discussed on a site like this. I know there is a relationship thread here but I would have thought that we would use a thread like that to discuss how relationships impact our work in the struggle for Black self-determination.

    I am more forgiving of the members who tend to bash whites. I know it's not going to really help us reach our goals, you know it too, but because white people are the human face of our oppressors, Black folks gonna be spittin venom at them sometimes. And sometimes, they deserve it.

    So what if I made 1 thread about a black mans preference for a healthy backside. It's not like that's all I emphasize on. Obviously it must have sparked interest, look at all the responses. I merely asked a Brothers opinion. I'll stop this discussion right here. If you don't like it, don't respond. If it was such a huge issue the mods would have said something. It is not my fault if folks take topics out of context. What's wrong with exploring sexuality, we're humans right?

    Okay, in all due respect for what you have said, and in all due respect for what anyone else on this forum may have to say...here is "MY PERSONAL CHALLENGE". Since you and a few more "think that all we do is blame the white man for this and blame the white man for that" as it pertains to what we as a people are going through...I CHALLENGE YOU TO POST OR COME ON THE MIC AND TELL ME JUST ONE THING THAT WE ARE SUFFERING FROM THAT IS NOT THE WHITE MANS' FAULT !!!

    How dare you try and ignore realities that our people have NEVER RECOVERED FROM, NEVER BEEN DEPROGRAMMED FROM AND HAVE NEVER BEEN TAUGHT TO EMBRACE !!! The real problem is that "We haven't actually recognized whites as being responsible or held them accountable !!!" Let me chill, this chit is making me sick !!
