You are right. Far too often Black people allow themselves to be distracted from the big picture in regards to what is best for Black people in the long run.

Black people need to learn how to disagree without attacking each other. Too many times Black people fight each other when they should be working together to find solutions to problems that affect all Black people.

Some times Black people are their own worst enemy.
I'm hoping some real good discussion can take place on this
thread to change that situation for the better.

Whatever, my question still stands: Why is a BW starting this discussion and not a BM leading the charge? I'm not going to defend grown ass men. They should be protecting us, not the other way around. I am not Sister soldier or Mammy Mule. And I refuse to buy the sales pitch that "Black people need to stick together" every time something happens to a BM. His BROTHERS should be leading the charge and making public statements that they will stop killing each other, protect their women and children and be men. I am not heeding the words of a "she-male" who is willing to do a man's job.
And what if a BM created this thread?? Would your views suddenly change?? Most are content and conformable with their views. So it doesn't necessarily matter either way. Someone could be exposed to a different outlook & yet still hold onto the same views. That's why it's sometimes better & easier to simply support those who share the same views as oppose too changing someone else because that's always a gamble.

What does it matter who started the thread. It is a positive thread calling for unity among Black people. Those Black people who want to support that will contribute to this thread with positive solutions, and that is a good thing.
If you don't want to be a part of that, then you are free to post elsewhere, because quite frankly I am sick and tired of Black people who do nothing but complain and criticize without trying to improve the situation for all Black people.
I'm tired of Black people who piss all over the efforts of other Black people who are trying to bring Black people together to do something positive.
The lady who created this thread called for unity among Black people, and all you can do is come here to create disunity.
Sadly you are not the only one here doing that, but I hope more people who believe in working together will start to post on this thread.
As far as Black on Black violence in Chicago and elsewhere, that is an issue that could be discussed on this thread, but it should be discussed with the intent of coming up with solutions to the problem. Ironically you brought up the subject here just to criticize the legitimacy of this thread.
As far as I am concerned you and others who are only here to criticize can take a walk because far too long your kind of thinking has been a part of the problem.
Out of respect for this thread I will no longer respond to you unless you are talking about how to bring Black people together, which is the topic of this thread.
Please spare me your high road BS. "Black unity" means just one thing = BW fighting for the rights of BM. I'm not doing a man's job, I'll leave that to the Mammies, because its obvious to me that BM won't be. Over and out.

We black people need to learn how to defend each other once again. I don't care if you you're dating non black women or non black men, it's stupid that we're being torn apart and giving white people want they want. White people seek to divide and destroy us and hate nothing more to see bp defending each other. We must make a pact to defend each other regardless of who we are dating and if you're dating anyone that needs validating by you hating your own race of women and men then please leave them, that is not love. People can date out and not hate their own race. We can discuss our own concerns without bringing white people into it. So what are some of the issues do black people want us to talk through and resolve to help ourselves do better???
I hope you don't get discouraged by some of the negative comments that are being made on this thread. Your call for unity by making this thread is a good thing, and I fully support it.

From now on I will not be responding to anyone who comes here to be negative because that takes me off topic from what this thread is all about.

I will only talk about how to create unity among Black people and to try to come up with some solutions.

Thank you for creating this thread.

I told black people here and other places what they need to do, but they rather complain, or complain about others who complain. This cycle needs to be broken. Soon you won"t have a choice, as was predicted.

I like this, but it's been called for many times now. The word Unity is not a word people of African descent are familiar with. Africa as a continent, was never united before European arrival and after colonialism, will never be united. Blacks here in the west, will never be untied, not because of whites, but because WE as a people choose not to. We still kill, tear down, steal, envy each other among many things. I can go on, but I wont...still a great suggestion, but on this site? you arent making a difference.

First of all I think you are a White racist pretending to be Black.
Second, this thread is about Black unity. If you are a White racist this does not concern you. If you are self hating Black this does not concern you. Bottom line you are free to take a walk.
Right! To advocate the death of Blacks when ur supposedly Black yourself doesn't even sound normal.

One way to guarantee that there will never be Black unity is to continue saying that Black unity is impossible. Saying that Black people will never be unified has a way of becoming a self fulfilling prophecy.

To the contrary saying and believing that Black unity is possible can also be a self fulfilling prophecy, particularly if actions are taken to create unity.

If enough Black people work hard to unify Black people for the betterment of Black lives it will have a positive affect, even if there are some Black people who don't support it.

The alternative is to give up on Black unity and accept the negative consequences that go along with that. I refuse to give up.

We will get MORE results from our actions vs our words. We have to start taken ourselves MORE seriously. If we're going to claim Black is Beautiful we need to start representing this. As long as we do NOT take ourselves seriously, no one else will NOT even our own. A reason why unity hasn't really occurred is because the seriousness of it isn't displayed by us.

Black Unity = The BW fighting for BM. The black man wants the black mammies to riot in the street for innocent black men everywhere. This is normally the case when black men come selling black unity dreams......if black men were truly serious they would not be waiting on the women and children to make the first move, they would be out front, leading, with or without us! Continue to hide behind the skirts of BW and continue to fail.

I can agree with this but Black Unity isn't reduced to race issues, it's also about creating opportunities in our communities & passing wealth & cultural values down to our children. Unity is for the well being of our own children which should always be number one priority.

Fighting battles does NOT define unity. If racism didn't exist, we all would still have to unify for the well being of our children & communities. At the end of the day, unity is about our children.
