I just said Detroit isn't representive of most Black American towns idiot. Most majority black cities in America aren't large and crime infested and African-Americans did play a role in our emancipation.
Most blacks live in or near major cities and any city big or small with close to 50% of a black population is not a desirable city because of violent and random crime.

As far as emancipation. You still aren't getting it. It was an unnatural fight to begin with because blacks shouldn't have allowed enslavement of an entire race in which they belonged. They shouldn't have been in chains to begin with but because they were it means they failed. It was a monstrous fail and worse yet, blacks didn't free themselves, whites did. Facts are slavery wasn't needed, except to uphold social superiority norms, so they decided to get rid of it. The few blacks speaking about emancipation were backward and dumb. They should have done less speaking and more acting and maybe blacks wouldn't have had to wait for the goodness of whites to free them 400 yrs later.

Why do you talk about other people being tribal when you're one yourself?

Never really understood that one.

And besides that, I find it hard to believe that bw like you with your backward mentality still exist. Don't even try that "i can't hate dark skin, I'm black myself" bullsh8t...we all know what self-hate looks like. Imagine if I was to come on here talking about "alek wek is ugly" or "grace jones looked like a dude"...you would know EXACTLY what I'm talking about. It's a damn shame when even a ww like obama's mother has more love and appreciation for the beauty of black people than y'all bw. No wonder, black men seek out non-bw. and no wonder black kids grow up so fked up...it's because of ignorant bw like yourself.
Like I care if you feel ashamed. You should be ashamed for being with an Asian woman instead of your own, lol.

I don't find that man attractive, now go somewhere else with your color issues. Don't push it on to me because you have self esteem issues.

Why would I get upset (like you are right now) if you don't find Alek wek attractive? That's on you what you find attractive, I could care less.

TRUE. Being able to adapt is a good way to measure the strength of a PPL. But hardships are usually due too bad decisions or unfortunate circumstances. Our ancestors struggle was due unfortunate circumstances. Had our ancestors came to America & reached the same level of success without racism, I wouldn't view them as less superior. The key behind success is being talented & gifted. Some PPL are indeed more gifted than others but many also do not utilize their gifts, maybe it's because they rather settle for less.

I do believe many of us as a PPL are not willing to settle which explain the civil rights movement & other movements we've had. Some of us have became a little too comfortable tho & thus we have became stuck. We could definitely be doing better because the talent, gift & being able to adapt is all there.

Generally speaking adaptation is mostly bad. The key to success is managing the amount of adaptation.

Also hardships aren't bad if it's the result of trial and error. The only way to accomplish a goal is to try to do it. That means risk. That risk may create hardship but that's "good" hardship. Hardship created by simply sitting on ones bottom waiting for a handout or expecting someone to do something for them is bad hardship.

Only my future husband is allowed to do any "fking" with me. So I will have to pass on that.
Well, my father has been the sole provider for our family as a physician. My mother didn't need to work even though she has a Masters in child pyschology. So she stayed home to raise us. And from the age of 6 I was trained by my mother on what the roles of a wife should be. Not saying it should only include cleaning and cooking, but I think as a woman, if you can't do the basics for your family, you are a failure just as if a man can't do the basics for his family.
If I had to pick between running around in a mini-skirt in a office and raising my children at home without the influence of daycare, I would always pick the latter. Even though I'm educating myself at University, I know very well the most important role I will ever have is the role of being a nurturing mother. If my husband makes enough to provide for us, I would rather stay home and ensure our children are schooled right, taught the morals and ethics of how to be respectful and proud people. I don't have anything against women who want to run around in mini-skirts in an office full of White men (that is their choice), but not for me.
I'll probably continue my education into nursing after University. I always wanted to be Nurse Practitioner, and I can always do that part-time when the kids are at school and make sure I'm home to cook for them and my husband.
Dam I like you. This is partly the reason that Canadian black females are on par with AA women to me .. an AA man.

I wouldn't keep you in the Kitchen too much as I appreciate a woman that can cook AND wear a miniskirt..

Look.. Let's just drop this discussion and talk about you in a mini skirt.

Tell me what I could expect when combining you.. and a miniskirt..

Canadian women are built like beautiful curvy AA women, and that's what I like...

And it sounds like you come from a decent family.. what do you know in regards to how to treat a man.. I would be interested in knowing what it is exactly you can do with this subject..

As a man and woman, you are not only responsible to your children.. and the family unit.. but you are responsible to each other as well.

Let's talk about it :)

though i do not condone any fight between African immigrants and AAs when they should better cooperate against whitey Amerikkka.
i've recently discovered that Dr James Aggrey was educated in Historically Black Colleges of the USA. So the AA elite has played a role for the emancipation of Ghana.
My Black history month will be dedicated to major Obibini like the "Big Six".

I'm wondering whether Francophone Black people in your country observe anything like our Black History Month over here.
You're right that some leaders of African indepence movements studied in HBCU's in America. I believe that Kwame Nkruman studied in Lincoln University (in Pennsylvania).

And many AA's are having the same success as our white counterparts despite our History vs their own in America because no one is more or less superior as far as being able to obtain a degree.

What does spending money have to do with anything? Between men and women on our level.. things like money etc... are already covered and expected.. only women who get broke dudes run around wondering if the dude has good finances..

For good women like her, that's already established. We're beyond that and more interested in the intellectual aspect.

The "financial" isn't even worth discussing as it's already handled.

Adaption is NOT bad. If one cannot adapt, their chances of survival deceases. We see the benefits of adaption when we look at The Indians vs The Africans. Obviously The African PPL adapt both physically and mentally otherwise the civil rights movement would have never occurred and physically we would have decreased in numbers.

You are right, black Americans did have some part in the emancipation of Ghana but I can't stand some of these aas with their superiority claims.
It's remarkable how far backward folk have moved.I guess I could cast blame on either side of the divide between Africans & African-Americans. But I question why the divide need be there. People like Kwame Nkruman, W.E.B DuBois, Frantz Fanon and others promote Pan-African solidarity. I was myself involved in the anti-Apartheid movement here during the 1980s, and was reading Amilcar Cabral as well as Malcolm.
Much of the quarrel here strikes me as the ignorant babbling of backward people.
The common enemy is IMPERIALISM!

Of course hardships are not bad but some of them can be avoided through wisdom and education. We have errors because we have flaws in our reasoning.

Wrong. Adaptation is largely BAD. If you have to adapt, that means it isn't natural. Adaptation isn't evolution. Evolution is natural, adaptation is brought on by unnatural events and/or circumstances. Adaptation is surrender. There are times where one must adapt in order to survive briefly but the fact they had to adapt at all is BAD. Some things one should never surrender or adapt to, such as slavery. Slavery was BAD adaptation and blacks as a race have seen little to no benefit for surrendering to such a thing which is why 400 yrs later we are still largely disrespected and still talking about slave and slave related issues. Blacks need to quit bragging about their make believe strength for slavery. If that is what strength is for, well pray for weakness.

The Indians and Asians had the more natural reaction. You are wrong.

Wrong again. There are some controllable factors to risk and some uncontrollable factors when determining risk. Therefore, failing at a task has little to do with reasoning. The biggest part of "success" is simply taking the risk.

Plus, it's not good to avoid all hardships. Some hardships we should welcome on our road to "success". We should welcome it because it will make us more valuable to society and more level headed once we get to our destination.

Some PPL can adapt better than others. Of course I never stated that all AA's have been able to adapt because some do have issues & kill themselves off but NOT all & these AA's represent this within' our community.
