22% of BM are married to NON BW!

ALL JUST DESIGNED TO PLAY ON BW FEARS,INSECURITIES AND FANTASIES! *http://www.essenc e.com/relationship s/commenta... BY CAUSING THEM TO FEEL THAT THEY ARE HOPELESSLY DOOMED TO BE ALONE UNTIL DEATH...BECAUSE THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH EITHER THEM OR WITH US BLACK FOLKS! WAKE UP BLACK PEOPLE AND START TO COMMUNICATE WITH EACH OTHER IN AN OPEN AND HONEST MANNER! *WHEN I WAS COURTING MY WIFE...SHE HEARD THE MOST VILE AND NEGATIVE THINGS ABOUT ME...FROM PEOPLE THAT EITHER BARELY KNEW ME OR WHO DIDN'T KNOW ME AT ALL...THAT WAS OVER TEN YEARS AGO! I do believe you're correct that this is part of a mental attack on the Black woman. I have known Black men who have dated Nonblack women from hell, only to discover there's nothing like the "Black Queen". These nonblack women also act protective of their men around black women. They hold them a little bit tighter. So it's not like the Black woman is only insecure around them, sometimes it's reversed. Thanks my brother for keeping me grounded.  (Jun 8, 2010 | post #952)

Interesting Pov about Nonblack women wanting to compete with Black women for Black men. I just came from St. Louis Missouri. I kind of get the feeling that these Nonblack/mixed women are considered as prizes there. There's some mixed couples in the suburbs, but it's more so nonchalant here, like it's no big deal.  (Jun 7, 2010 | post #766)

Why Black Woman hate their natural Hair?

My hair is in it's natural curly state right now. I'm loving it, it's more manageable than dealing with the perms. Wash, condition, and use the leave in conditioner. Rocking the curly afros is where it's at. I'm proud of my curly, spiralled locks.  (Mar 8, 2010 | post #156)

Horn Africans are NOT BLACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LOL, this sounds very biased. What book does this come from? I'm not trying to be disrespectful to you, but the last two lines are wild/ridiculous. Are these standard quotes used by Islamic people now? I'm interested in learning about this. I know there are Africans who respect Islam, as well as African Americans.  (Feb 4, 2010 | post #2795)

Hey Samoan Irish, how are you? I hope you're being nice, you're very pleasant at times. Just thought I would say hello to you, haven't heard from you since before New Year's. I try to stay out of the "race" issues. I really don't believe in it either.  (Feb 1, 2010 | post #2004)

Thanks! I was not trying to offend you as a Moorish woman, I was only sharing with you. You seem very intelligent, and I know you don't hate White people. Neither do I, what I hate is obvious lies. That's a beautiful story of how your family traced your ancestry and that it was passed orally. I think some of these stereotypes would not exist if people were better educated and more acceptable of one another's differences.  (Feb 1, 2010 | post #325)

Donalia, tried to pull up your link but could not. Could you tell me the name of that book? Sounds like it's interesting. I did read Golden Age of the Moors, and enjoyed it. I said the American school system is to blame for miseduction in a comment to Moorish Americans on Youtube. The author of the video saw a need to say the people should blame themselves for ignorance of ancestors, and cross reference with Global History. We do have a responsiblity to keep learning, but the initial stages of education is the most important. The educational system captures young minds and tells half-truths, and sometimes lies. Like the 1492 fallacy I learned in school about Columbus who was a thief, rapist, and murderer. Maybe this particular Moor has a hidden agenda for trying to sugar coat the truth. Some people choose to look at the educational system through rose colored lenses especially if it benefits them. I'm kind of leery of this particular person now. I beg to differ with the images, propoganda, and Half-truths. An Example: In my daughter's 5th Grade textbook the feautures of Touissant L' Overture have been changed..he looks Indian now. So even if the authors don't say something with words, they use pictures to implant ideas. Why didn't they show me pictures of an Indian looking man in my textbook? He went from looking African to now looking Indian. The Moors are not even mentioned in most textbooks. My teenager learned of the Moors through her European Spanish teacher. The book Lies My Teacher Told Me by James Loewen exposes the lies in the American School System.  (Feb 1, 2010 | post #300)

Yes I agree. Haitians are very courageous people who have endured a lot. It's no coincidence they've been through so much hell financially. They were hated because of beating the French, who was a powerful army. There's a link to Haiti and the Lousiana purchase. Napolean is taught about, I don't remember hearing about the Haitians in grade school and how they defeated Napolean. It's no coincidence of the half truths taught. People need to understand the History of Haitians and how it benefitted the USA. I do give Napolean credit for saying "History is a set of lies that everyone agrees upon." How true this is.  (Jan 31, 2010 | post #1706)
