Welcome to the world of politics. Corruption is how Bush got into the presidency in the first place. I don't care that the man doesn't cover his heart when the Star Spangled Banner comes. I don't know many black people who do. I don't. I don't care that his wife said, "I'm proud of America for once," or whatever she said, because I felt her on that. I don't care about his experience level, because if experience is an indicator of how well you do in a presidency, Bush shouldn't be as bad as he is. I don't even care about what Jeremiah Wright said, because you can throw that at Jeremiah Wright when HE runs for President. (May 15, 2008 | post #31)
Actually, the lightbulb was invented by a white man, but what good is a light bulb without the filament...which if I'm not mistaken, was invented by a black man. (Apr 10, 2008 | post #69)
But is the preference because they're white, or because of something else? I feel like if you base a preference on someone because of their color, then you're cheapening your relationship. That's basically like saying, "I only date blondes." That gives everyone around you license to say, "He's only dating her because she's white." I agree, interracial dating is NOT a problem. I would date a white guy in a heartbeat if I thought he and I were compatible. Same with Asian guys, black guys, Hispanic, etc. I won't say I don't see color, because I would be fooling myself, but upon seeing a color, I assume that person is more than just a color, because I am more than a color.

Thank for this. In a forum where there are a lot of people who hate black women and want to bring them down, it's nice to see someone who is on the way to edifying his community and his race. :) (Jan 27, 2008 | post #12)
Right. The only reason God is presented as male is the same reason why every book in the Bible is written by men, and why Mary Magdalene is called a prostitute possessed with 8 demons for being closer to Jesus than any of his disciples. This is the same society in which women were told to keep silent in church, to keep their heads covered. They were property of their fathers, and when they got married, they were property of their husbands. Do you really think they would represent God as female given all this? (Jan 27, 2008 | post #201)
What's wrong with the women your age or close to it? If you're being serious... (Jan 18, 2008 | post #9)
Well, no, but I think she's a better authority on how she should be identified than you are. (Jan 12, 2008 | post #121)
No, I'm not playing "black slave mother", I'm a realist. And the truth is, yes, the black man has historically left his children with their mothers. If you read my post mindfully, you would have seen that I said that it takes TWO to have a baby. I didn't blame just the black woman. I simply said that they shouldn't play the victim. Especially when you know that some of the women don't know WHO the daddy is anyway. As for most Black men, I don't need "most" black men. I don't even like most Black men in the romantic sense. I already have my Black man, and guess what, he makes it so that I don't have to go looking for someone else to care about me. I'm not "loyal" to anyone but my fiance, and I know for sure that he is loyal to me. (Jan 12, 2008 | post #66)
Yep, it's all me. (Jan 8, 2008 | post #205)
I love my body, but I didn't always, due to events that happened in my past that lowered my self-esteem substantially. I'm still suffering the consequences for my choices, but I do think I look good. I'm tall and slender, which is something I hopefully can maintain. (Jan 8, 2008 | post #91)
She calls herself "African-Amer ican." (Jan 8, 2008 | post #102)
What I'm not seeing is how this incident in particular has to do with all black women? (Jan 8, 2008 | post #101)
