Idiot...dummy...why can't you answer intelligently without name calling? I answered because you said something relevant to a group of people who I am identify with and therefore I believed I could provide insight. How hard is that to comprehend?
Now you are bringing up a new issue. I hope you realize that. I don't believe we try to compete with anyone...
...particularly with you, given your debating, logic and rhetoric skills, it wouldn't be an equal fight ;)
oh i forgot. some africans do want to be white.

DragonPat - explain your conclusion that I, as an African, am part of the subcategory of Africans that you have decided want to be white?

On and DragonPat, have you heard of Abe Lincoln? He was your 16th president and is linked with the Emancipation Proclamation? He is also linked to this saying. It goes:

" Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt."

I think it applies to you.

please stay away from blk american women. do not do us the favor of considering us for relationships.
africans women are perfect for you! go over their way.
and yes, there are PLENTY of africans in america using our welfare system. they are simply counted as blk people because our system is set up to acknowledge RACES and not tribes and clans. hopefully, this will change in the future and we will have those statistics for you.
and stop telling us how africans feel about us and why; we could care less. blk americans don't think about africans.
this post was not directed to you ignorant one, but you chose to make a big deal out of it and start a internet tribal war; something africans are known to do.

i guess you missing the actual blood and guts tribal wars so many of you are familiar with.

What is wrong with you?? You said, "and stop telling us how africans feel about us and why; we could care less. blk americans don't think about africans."

You commented about a group of people, Africans. I am African. I therefore provided insight on the matter. It doesn't matter who your initial comment was directed towards or not. You mentioned a third party in which a member of third party responded.

Have you been to school before in any capacity? I don't get what you are not comprehending.

Can we trade off black Americans for Africans please? Pretty please?! You guys are 5xs more educated and a breath of fresh air. Speaking of which, I don't remember, but you're Ethiopian? I don't know much about sub-saharan Africa, but lately been quite interested in it. Well pretty interested in other areas of Africa that I don't know about as well.
Hey - we love you guys too! TRUST ME ON THAT - despite DragonPat's tribal talk nonsense, majority of us are educated and progressive and want to be around those who uplift, regardless of ethnicity...or even race!

Yes, I am Ethiopian! Thanks for remembering. Take a trip there!

You're welcome! That is a question that is hard to answer. For starters and unfortunately you just have to try finding like minded people, the intelligent logical ones, to have civil debate with. Work from there and what I hope to happen is that the others will follow. There's a very small bunch on here you can have any civil debate or dialogue with without being deemed a racist or self hater I must warn you. In my experience I've found that when you do have debate with someone or just simple dialogue, if it's something you state as facts, then definitely post evidence of your facts. It'll calm irrational people down. That's my experience.
Good points...have you found any sites where like minded people, such as yourself, unite?

People...this is a trolls favorite tactic!

They attempt to work on your emotions that are stimulated from something they do, and once they seem to get a feel for that...they try to guide you to guilt mode lying 100% along the way in the name of the truth! Watch 'em...and remember...always...they are always....and never less....100% full of sh*t and do not care about your best interest in mind. They are here to cause chaos...period. Thats the bottom line. Cuss 'em out...and push 'em back!!!!

I don't believe that nonsense about the false tribal talk, trust me. I live in CO where there's a fairly large Ethiopian community here and I have an Ethiopian friend I get along with just fine. He's really cool and intelligent much like yourself. I haven't sat and really tried finding other sites yet, but I have tried blackplanet.com before a few years ago. If I could remember, that site had some reasonable people on there. It's mainly people who are in college so the dialogue between them and those here would be different I'm sure.
Thanks...I think the most frustrating is how some are not open to new ways of thinking...and are quick to label others...ie calling us trolls...

LAcreole what is your opinion of Ethiopians?

I can only go by my views of them and how I witnessed their culture. I honestly don't think anything of Ethiopians nor any other African born person. We don't share the same values, we don't speak the same languages for the most part, we don't listen to the same music, we don't eat the same cuisine, and we don't have the same sense of pride. They pride themselves on being Africans and that's fine and dandy and I pride myself on being an American or LA Creole because I love my state although it's a southern craphole when it comes to economics or jobs. Overall, I don't like any African born people, however, I do like one who so happen to be Ethiopian. Can't help but not to like him. He's very nice, hard working, respectful, and conversational. Very well cultured who will speak to anyone even if they're not Ethiopian. Needless to say, he's not the typical African or Ethiopian. He assimilated into this country quite well without having to stem away from his Ethiopian heritage. He's a proud Ethiopian but know how the history of Americans (blacks) as well. He and the Ethiopians as a whole are different so I can only judge by my one African friend.

You're welcome. Don't let it frustrate you. It's just a word which means little to nothing. When you understand the full nature of the beast, then you'll understand how to completely make them angry while you stay happy. You just simply educate them and force them to self reflect. Self reflection for the typical AA is the worst thing they want to encounter. It's a tactic I've used against them since coming on to the AA forum of topix. It works like a charm. They become obsess with you in secret hopes of winning your appraisal over I suppose or whatever fantasies these people have. All I know is they are, most not all, obsessed with Ethiopians, whites, hispanics, and bi/multi/triracial people for whatever pornographic reason. So how did you come across topix.net ?
Lol - I wonder about the interest in Ethiopians in particular...I wonder if it's due to our features or our history? I was searching about culture conflicts in the States, and that's how I came across topix ! You?

Well it's just what I think lol but I'll give it a shot as to maybe why, not necessarily know. For others I think it's mainly the features in Ethiopians in particular and the thing that others outside of Ethiopia consider Ethiopians as Caucasians. But many black Americans aren't educated on the Caucus mountains so when someone mentions Caucasians, they automatically assume you mean "white skinned". That's just for starters.
Great points...but many AA have similar features! 2Pac for one...

You're right and I've never thought about that before, 2 Pac having similar features particularly his nose. Black Americans have always been fascinated with colorism though including in their own community (dark skinned vs light skinned) so the infatuation with Ethiopians or outside groups is just greater. Just look at a lot of the topics on here such as 'Somalis aren't African because (fill in the blank)' or 'do mulattos like black men/women'. Typically you guys features are very different from black Americans because most black Americans are slave descendants of West Africans vs sub-Saharan people.
Good point...I love how any time someone has a differing viewpoint, we are automatically deemed a troll.

I wonder what will become of blacks in America...mix out? Or will there be a movement...specifically for BW?

From accomplishments to be beauty, it doesn't seem like there is much happiness...

People I love how you have these trolls sucked into your forum like they need to come here everyday....to su*k your dick!!!! They are addicted here...nothing to do...no place to go....but to a place where they despise the people. Now yall know...yall have more sense than that. These trolls are here looking for you...everyday...day in and day out....sometimes all day...but they don't like you....hahahahahahahaha...damn ...African Americans are natural Midases...they trolls cannot breathe without us.....and there are more men...African American men here that post more than women.....meaning they are here for our di*ks yall...hahahahahahahahaha..... ...

********Beware of Svengali Posters**********

My African American sisters;

When you read articles about supposedly African American women who tell you the grass is greener with Caucasian men, put your thinking cap on. How could that even be possible? You know one of the biggest reasons they seek you out is to put their hands around a nice round brown and go in!

I want you to think of this everytime you get an idea from one of their posts, as i know many of you are not paying them any attention. Think of the Bobby Brown, and Whitney situation. Many of you may not have known this...but here goes.

Sissy Houston arrived in Atlanta with police officers at Bobby and Whitney's home in Alpharetta, GA. Sissy told Whitney to pack up, that she was coming with her and if she resisted the police was going to take her down. She also told Whitney that if she tried to leave with Bobby, the police was going to take them both down. That was the splitting factor that happened to Bobby and Whitney, well known in the music world.

Now Bobby and Whitney were gamey and very well connected to the industry and lasted because of that. They knew who the players were, good and bad. In steps Sissy, messing with GOD's covenant which was the marriage between Bobby and Whitney. THATS A DEFINITE NO...NO! Sissy...trying to be somebody in the eyes of Clive Davis, who was rumored to want to get some of the money back he lost on Whitney. Now here it comes people.......

WHEN SISSY CAME TO GET WHITNEY, BOBBY WAS QUOTED AS SAYING, SISSY AND THE REST OF THEM HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY JUST DID. SHE WILL BE DEAD IN 3-4 YEARS. WELL...HE WAS RIGHT! Ladies...you and I know...one thing you can crown the African male on is knowing those streets, and when you are in the game....having a brother look out for you...is your safety net!!!! Know that!

So when you are listening to these trolls and third world thinkers...remember...they are trying to tell you how to live in a country of men and women that your blood is shared with. Are they crazy or something? How could you possibly be safer there? Those are fools...now don't get me wrong. There is a such thing as a good Caucasian man that can love you. But you don't go looking for love in the wrong places. You're in a possible instant threat daily...its just the idea that...a snap could come at any moment. These bit*ches that sell you this non-sense have been dogged and tormented to extremes you could not imagine by men that have never in the history of this country treated their women. Wake-up...and cuss their azz out!!!!!These types of bit*hes are poison!!!!!!

See our website...look at the first 10 posts....

http://www.topix.com/forum/afam/T9SA34JBFU3V5 ...

Keep up the good work people...do not post to these trolls!!!!!!!

Hello Sudance Girl. Refresh my memory no offence I can not figure out who you are. What state do you live in? For the last years years I have spent the majority of my time in DC and Boston.
Just going to Ethiopia and geeting married is no solution because many of the girls are so depsperate to leve the country that they will settle for anyone.Why not try over here? How do I know if I go to Ethiopia that I will meet someon who is truly in love with me or know if she is an opportunist? Can you gice some serous advice in this reagard it woud be apreciated?
Can you give me date and place that you suggested going "to Ethiopia and getting married" because I realy do not recall the encounter? Once you remind me hopfeuly it jot my memory.
If you are a long lost friend have a Happy New Year.

They are not the center....they are always putting down African Americans being brainwashed by their ancestors into thinking that all African Americans were slaves and they weren't, so thats a lie! Then they brag about being the first settlers of civilization and then played the world with a fake ark....so thats a lie!
Then run around acting better than other African Americans...some do anyway...and then not wonder why they ended up in a third world country and one of the least wealthy of all places with daily wages less than $2 a day. And they brag about that? Have they ever asked why they were so cursed? I've never seen well to do people brag to you about sh*t...they don't need to...they have everything already and they know it...so thats a lie.
They can say what they want to about African Americans...and even some that they figure were enslaved, but I'd rather be someplace where the riches are....instead of sitting someplace broke and suffering from the "no food choke".....driving the luxury cars, living in a nice big house, wearing nice clothes and etc. than sitting around hating claiming bragging rights but got passed over
and all the claim to fame is "bragging rights"? Tell ya what, you take the song...I'll take the life...and I'll meet ya....at the bottle of champagne...last one to get theirs is a rotten egg...like the two mooses's in the in the insurance commercial who have goggles on at night...watching the lion try to sneak over at them...and they say, "Come on Carl, we thought you were better than this! Have you ever considered going vegan?" Hahahahahaha....I am dying laughing over here.....hahahahaman yall crack me up.......

No thats not it...let me be blunt honest with. African American women like girls that are down for the things that make life look good for them...talk to one of them about that subject and you can get a listener, start talking that greater than thou sh*t with the attitude, and a girl can get her azz kicked...with the quickness! Its just that simple...nothing hard to it.
