Exactly, so I don't why unique insist that aas are superior to other blacks. If given a chance blacks can ascend to any position anywhere in the world.

<quoted text>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!
The only thing is we are too comfortable. The old folks had agenda, thats was the time when black was considered worser than the devil himself. The only time blacks come together is when they are pitted against a common enemy, without common enemy we have nothing to do but try to one up each other.

The Indians and Asians had the more natural reaction. You are wrong.
How is being able to adapt a bad thing. People has been adapting since the beginning of time. If it wasn't for adaptation women life would seize to exist.

Because, depending on how old you are I'll change up the dialogue.. If you are just a young brother making your way.. I'll be more understanding as to why you think the way you do..

..if you are older than me.. I will be nicer as well..

If you are my age +/- 2 years then I will hold nothing back.

I just promote intelligent black men and don't try and belittle them especially the younger brothers.

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 :)
I'm a modest woman and prefer to not talk about that stuff. Lets just say I fit into any outfit very nicely. God has blessed me. And that's only for my husband to see. Besides, I could never disrespect my father wearing that outside.

I don't know why women these days equate feeding your family a nice meal to oppression. I don't mind being in the kitchen making sure that my man gets his meal after a long day at work. My philosophy is simple. As long as a man is doing what he should be doing for his family, I will do everything I can to ensure he is happy and catered to. I think too many women these days have taken to feminism and it has caused all this family separations. The men have started to become no good at the same time.

I'm a traditional woman, so I expect a man to be a man and i will do everything to make him happy. I have a great mother who has instilled in me how to be a great wife and mother. She has been a perfect example and always keeps my father happy. So I know how to treat a man well as long as he does his role as a husband.

No I said we are more likely to avoid pitfalls with wisdom and knowledge. I never said never take a chance.
People who are afraid of losing are in truth weak. They are afraid if they have one misstep they will quit. These are the type of people who cheat there way to "success" or do morally reprehensible things just to make it.

Wisdom comes through experience and experience comes from what you've experienced. Some of it may have been a painful lesson and some of it may have not been. Wisdom isn't about avoiding pitfalls. Wisdom is about knowing what to do when you are in one. We aren't perfect beings and wise people prepare for the let downs of life because of this. No one knows it all. The key is knowing what you do know and knowing what you don't know. Just like Donald Rumsfeld (I believe that's his name) said years ago..there are known unknowns and unknown unknowns.

It's not about perfection on the way to your destination because perfection isn't natural to humans.

The situation is bad NOT the 'ability' to adapt. The abilities we have are NEVER bad because they are beneficial. If one lacks this ability, they will NOT be able cope through stressful situations, same with the physical aspect. If Africans could NOT adapt to an environment were Malaria is common, it would have wiped them out.

Please explain how the life of women would cease to exist? After all how in the world can men exist but women wouldn't?

Adaptation is bad because it is caused by unnatural events or circumstances. Therefore having to adapt is bad which is why all successful species on earth limit and manage adaptation. Too much adaptation means too much struggle to survive and life isn't about merely surviving.

For instance, let's say you have a two bedroom house and around holiday season you have extended family come visit you and stay at your house. The total amount of people in your home during let's say a week totals twenty. Now it's crapped but you deal with it, but you think to yourself it would be nice if they could afford hotels. But you aren't happy about being uncomfortable ..you adapt because you know it won't last forever but the adaptation itself is bad.

How can the situation be bad but yet adapting IN TO the situation be good?

What abilities are you speaking about? Whatever choices we make in life for ourselves should always be for more freedoms and comforts. If they aren't, we are going backward! This is why most adaptation is bad and why successful groups work to limit and manage their adaptation. You are so wrong on this issue.

Africans are dying hand over fist from Malaria.

Looks like you want to declare war against reality.

Reality is things change and those better suited for such changes are those who adapt.

So ''adaption'' is largely GOOD.

If central-west Africans adapted to the capitalist ways of Europe during the 15th century the ''Atlantic Slave Trade'' wouldn't of happened in the first place.

The least successful human groups adapt the most and since adaptation is bad, they don't succeed.

The most successful species on the planet is us (Sapiens) and they've adapted heavily all over the planet through thousands of generations.

What are you on?

We wear clothes, control fire, cook our meals, create tools, domesticate plants & animals etc. This is all adaptation on an extreme!

We're the legacy of sheer adaptation.
