<quoted text> So you support a company that sells sheep shears so what? All you blacks want is to be like Whitey. Oh the hair, how are you gonna straighten it this year? Chemicals, fruit juice, oils or heat. Pulling never worked well. The blk bucks are finally learning to shave that shit off. Maybe that's the solution to SOS pads hanging off your skull. Good luck!
LOL Red neck please leave me alone (Why are you even here in the first place?), I AM NATURAL HAIRED N-A-T-U-R-A-L, so don't talk nonsense about someone you don't even know.

Don't be butt hurt because i support black businesses, why should i support anybody else? I don't relax my hair or straiten it (i know better than to do that.) and don't bleach my skin I was born black and i'm not ashamed of that.

Why would i want to be like you, I don't wanna start turning pink the first 30 minutes of being in the sun, why would i want to look and smell like a wet dog with stringy straight hair.

You obliviously don't know black hair, if you did you would have known that is soft like wool, then again you the typical low IQ red neck that doesn't now anything about other peoples culture so you come on these forums to troll instead.

I actually support black owned business e.g. hair companies i don't buy from anybody else apart grocery shopping, i haven't head of black owned bank though. are there any in England?
I'm glad to hear that you support Black owned businesses, particular hair care companies. The Black hair care industry is probably a billion dollar industry, but Black people are not making that money as much as other non-Blacks (Asians, Whites, etc.) are.

I don't have a problem with anyone making money in the Black hair care business, but I would love to see more Black people in the business as inventors, manufactures, distributors, and store owners. Since Black people spend the most money on Black hair care products and services, it stands to reason that they should be making money in that business.

As a side note, I wish all Black women and men would wear natural hair styles and only use products that do not have harmful chemicals in them for the sake of their health and well being.

I am not by nature a pessimist, but with the proliferation of the internet, coupled with television and other forms of media, I fear that our collective body lacks the intellectual and psychological antibodies necessary to withstand the onslaught of bacteria and viruses directed at us by those who benefit from our disunity.
Look here on this site at all of the white trolls and their black proxy agents who serve no other purpose than to breath air into all of the myths that we have ingested over the years about ourselves. They are propagandist whose agenda is to foster disunity and dilution, whether it be racial, gender, emotional or spiritual in form, is thinly veiled, if not outright transparent.
I believe that in the past because of our physical segregation and less exposure to mediums of information and their disinformation campaigns, we managed our unity reasonably well under the circumstance. Marriages rates were higher, black on black crime and out of wed lock child births were far less; and this open contempt for our counter gender was hardly a blip on the radar. This is not to say that we didn't have issues, but they bore no resemblance to what we see now.
Nowadays, not only is change inevitable, but it is happening at a more expeditious speed; and it is our ESTIMATION of those changes, fueled by disinformation accompanied by images that is rotting and decaying the core of the love and unity of what was once a proud and defiant people.
Excellent Point! Basically our culture has been badly infiltrated. This racists system has divided our communities & tainted our minds. Many of us are now content & comfortable with the views we've been exposed too which is counter-productive to our own plight. Not enough of us share the same views now in order to successfully work together.

Some of us actually believe segregation is what put the nail in the coffin. While living in a racists society, the best thing to have done is limit as much exposure this as possible. Nowadays it is simply harder to raise kids especially if ur concerned about what they will be exposed too while their minds are still developing. The Media & The Internet is like a Pandora box that is now been opened.

Here is my challenge to you. Give us some solutions as to how you would approach creating unity among Black people.
I've heard all of your criticism, but this thread is about coming up with solutions. If all you have are criticism and no solutions, then you are guilty of doing the same thing you accuse others of doing in regards to being all talk and no action.
You see I don't have a problem with constructive criticism, and I don't expect anyone to have all the answers to problems. However I do grow ever so weary of those who complain and only talk about how something is not working or can't be done without at least offering some solid recommendations on how to do thing better.
Fair enough. However, there was no complaint. Just a refusal to sit up and discuss old "solutions" as if we've just put forth something interesting and brand new.

Unity has been spoken of already. I'm only saying in order to unify bp will first have to deal with inner problems they've adapted, such as racism and bigotry that so many practice openly against each other. Also, we must find out if the majority of bp want to pursue individualism or community route in terms of building respect.

If the majority of bp want to continous on individualism, it's best talk of unification cease. Unifying is not hard but you must first want it.

Oh no no don't get me wrong, i don't relax or use weave i'm natural. i only buy stuff like shampoo, conditioners and etc. that have a positive effect for my hair.

I do agree with you about the hair industry, i think people should watch the documentary good hair and 400 years without a comb, in the documentary's it explain a lot and helped to open peoples eyes including my mothers and friends around me.

From where I stand, a good starting point would be for us to collectively understand how we are psychologically victimized, programmed and conditioned to believe in our own inferiority; a belief which inimically infects us with the indifference and nihilism that has reaped havoc upon our lives and communities.
Until we understand this and are able to uproot the seeds that have been planted we will only be addressing the symptoms, while ignoring the underlying disease. Any remission of what ails us will only be temporary until the underlying disease is cured and permanently removed from our bodies.
We uncritically accept too much information about ourselves from people who are unlike ourselves; people that are external to our culture and experience. What we believe about ourselves, we are taught to believe; we ingest the hatred and contempt that others have for us, only to infect those who look like us; living our lives as walking, talking parodies of what our programmers expect of us.
So while the OP enumerated issues are valid on their face, unless we address the questions of why are we this way, we will continue, like lemmings over the cliff, descending into the abyss.
Some of us have made the effort to de-program & not allow ourselves to be psychologically victimized BUT 1st we must be aware the source like you stated. If we dunno the source, we will continue to be duped. If Adam & Eve knew who the devil was, they would have NEVER been tricked.

I think the easiest way for any Black person to build unity is to start with their own family and circle of friends. Sometimes when people talk of doing something major like building Black unity, they think of doing it on a grand scale or in a big way.

Simply building strong supportive bonds with family and friends can be a start, particularly if it is done with the idea of supporting each other to help improve their lives (education, health and wellness, starting a business, etc.).

Perhaps one family at a time or one neighborhood block at time is the way to go for some people.

Excellent point. We can clearly mark the beginning of our descent as a deeply fractured people with the removal of the OSTENSIBLE institutional and personal segregational barriers. It was like the East Germans crossing over after the Berlin Wall came down; scattering like rats in a mad exodus in case they decided to re-erect it.

We ourselves assimilated with a weak collective immune system, not fully capable of defending ourselves against the dark, nefarious forces of propaganda that were waiting for us on the other side. We were like a sick person, bed ridden for 400 plus years who stumbled out of bed before being fully fortified. Already severed from our past, they, through the effective use of brain washing, removed our most recent history of unity and group love via the media and educational system. And of course, if you can remove the past, you can control the future!

While I have not given up hope of our eventual recovery and psychological emancipation, we must do so before too long; the clock is ticking and soon we shall cross the proverbial Rubicon. The world is economically and politically reconfiguring itself and our slice of the pie is becoming smaller and smaller while we have been lulled into complacency with the "Delusion of Inclusion," where we simply defer our critical thinking obligations to some institutionally appointed expert who is being paid to parrot the views of the interest of those who employ them. We must make haste!

Agree. Basically focusing on inner solutions;not outward solutions. Family is at the root of anything healthy and no law can change this.

It's not necessary to know who the devil is. We only need to know he exists. The only one we should seek to know is God. Adam and Eve made a serious error in trying to know the devil.

Agree but the influence sweeping across our Nations is constantly keepin' us divide us as a PPL like the wheat and a tare. Look at how race groups can easily be divided and pit against each other through the media & internet. The best way to counter this is too limit the exposure because you are exposed too something the more begin to accept. It's the same reason why the media constantly continue showing images of homosexuality.

The world has always had deception..which is why we should always seek God. God is non deceptive and the only truth.

You honor the devil when you seek understanding. That's why Adam and Eve failed. They did what the devil wanted not because they did or didn't know him. They did what the devil wanted because they failed to follow God. If they had followed their God; they wouldn't have failed.

Of course you need to know in order to distinguish the evil doers so that you know from which direction the enemy fire will come. What she is suggesting (metaphorically) is to indistinguishably fire into the crowd because we know that the devil exist so he must be one of them.
