    Peace and Blessings Family,

    This has come up all the years we've been here ... whether one is Black or White ... and we never really know.

    Even if someone says they are White, posts a picture of a White person, doesn't guarantee they are.

    Likewise, someone could say they are Black, act the part to the T, and be White ... i've seen it!

    You can't easily confirm or deny it ... yet we get all aroused surrounding such ... it's kinda like insanity to me.

    Some Members have wanted me to not allow white people here ... as if i have the wherewithal to actually police such a thing?!

    We've had Black People ... Sisters and Brothers ... join saying they are White, just to disrupt our peace ... knowing the response they'll receive.

    It's kraziness to me ... i don't care what color you are ... won't invest any time trying to find out ... just be respectful ... that's all i'm looking for.

    Anywho ... love you! ... :grouphug:

    :heart:

    Doing videos though, is changing this some ... :look:

    But few folk actually do videos ... most stay behind the scenes ... i useta be one of 'em ... :wink:

    Folk accused me of being white (among other things) ... way back in the day ... shole did ... that was the word on the street ... destee is white.

    In fact ... if you want to turn other Black People against other Black People ... tell them the Black person is White ... it works, sometimes.

    :heart:

    Your right Destee, Respect is all that's needed!
    Until folks want to debate a racial issue, they should keep in mind their enviroment and whom they represent n the real unconcious, non escapeable, mind of theirs!

    It depends on the site. You may never really know in a format such as this but it's different on Facebook which is built on social networks such as family,work, church, alumni, etc.

    Brother O ... i don't see a great big difference, no matter the site.

    If we go to a person's facebook page, how do we know if any of the people listed as friends, are actually the image they've portrayed?

    Are you saying it's easier on facebook, to more correctly guess one's ethnicity, based on the group they are surrounding themselves with?

    It's still a guess ... not really knowing ... unless you've actually met the person or something ... right?

    I don't understand how you know on facebook someone's color, but can't know here or on another site?

    Good talking to you, as usual ... :)

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:
