    Richard Murray Thoughts Version 2

    When I began punditry on sport, it was confined in online locale to my material, still is. I looked and learned through various other formats or Ideas to create my own place. Past blogging, I thought to use Ebooks, my most common format. EBooks can utilize audio and are a clear way to lineate your actions. I made the Kings of London Epic Poem Series and Richard Murray's Thoughts Series reflecting that truth. But, Ebooks were and are not the most used format to messages through the internet. Sport require common channels be used, if you have not figured out how to use an uncommon channel more imaginatively while attention getting, base on saturation in sport viewers to modern media. I thought to audio blog, The Richard Murray Fanatacism Audible, while collate from some of my favorite womens soccer connections, Richard Murray's Fanatacism, or strictly from the players, The Players Say. I gained more outreach but I found myself acting in similar to what others were doing. I find myself now starting a new endeavor, in this AALBC blog entry, like the Audible but absent the strict format. Now, Richard Murray's Thoughts Version 2 is here. I will post in the comments in this blog, any are free to join me,and state my thoughts. But the content or style will now be free.

    Richard Murray Thoughts Version 2

    YOUTUBE LINK TRANSCRIPT FOOTBALL CRAZY EPISODE 89 reply Good morning good afternoon or good evening, wherever you are listening I am richard murray and this is my reply to episode 89 of football crazy Football crazy involve Kay Murray, Kev Egan side Des Norris, Kay is on twitter spelled K-A-y-L-M-u-r-r-a-y Kaylmurray, Kev is on twitter spelled K-E-V-underscore-E-g-a-n Kev_Egan , Des is on twitter spelled p-a-r-t-i-d-o-p-o-o-p-e-r partidopooper My talk is available as a transcript in my african american literary book club blog linked in the details to this video, I will note the time to subject matter in the football crazy podcast in the transcript. At the end of the transcript I will have links to things I refer too 0:52 Atlanta United segment, they do have a strong fanbase. Check Kev's twitter for a link to an article explaining the process the owner to atlanta united did to make the team and grow a potent young fanbase. I am HAppy Kev has an association to them. But I didn't know Kay did the efifa cup final. Esports is the future in many way. The audience already exist and is growing, the sponsorship will grow Though modern humanity's majority, which is fiscally impoverished, will always have access to a ball rather than a computer able to play in an online massive multiplayer environment.Esports is not for the global poor, the beautiful game still is. 2:03 Real Madrid segment, I agree to Kay or Gary Bailey concerning viniciusjr or marcelo, Gary_bailey is on twitter as g-a-r-y-underscore-b-a-i-l-e-y-one gary_bailey1 . I think viniciusjr needed to start against Girona, but Solari is a patient coach, and MArcelo is a willing player. MArceloa never seems unhappy on the bench. But, Marcelo's game was grooved around cr7 who only has a replacement in viniciusjr. So strategically , MArcelo needs Viniciusjr's game. For me, Sergio Ramos yellow or red card was more potent. Unfortunately, Des is correct, dangerous play is not based on intent but occurance. 8:30 Paul Pogba SEgway, I agree to Kev's position that pundits have to stop suggesting things that reject fairness. In my opinion , any are willing to think the same, To suggest that pogba has to not be carded to save the game is false. The rules exist supposedly for all. As a pundit if you don't speak to equality under the referee then you are sinful to complain when some suggest favoritism, unless you desire favoritism but are unwilling to say it publicly. Pogba warranted a double yellow in the first half. Commentators display their mentality toward the game in general when they think a player must be protected for media or fiscal profit. 9:02 Real Madrid segment return , 25th red card for Ramos. I didn't know that. I should had expected such a high number. Real MAdrid should tolerate it cause only the best defenders risk. Poor defenders don't risk red card situations. The art of defending is risk, in the same way the art of attack is risking looking silly the art of defense is risking weakening the team. 11:23 Lopetegui segment, I didn't know wolverhampton wanted lopetegui. in retrospect, that would had been a bad choice for a battling english team. Lopetegui like keoman at everton is a rigid coach that having players to fit his mold can do great, but not having those players is bound to fail. 12:20 Gareth Bale segment, The link to his gesture is in the transcript page. I comprehend it is against the law but the question is, does the law need to be changed? I say change the law, and allow the gestures, but I dont have the power to change the law and those in control of the beautiful game, are not interested in changing the law, as they feel, audiences need to be coddled like children. 13:38 FC BArcelona vs Valladolid segment, yes Jamie Easton, on twitter spelled e-a-s-t-o-n-j-a-m-i-e eastonjamie , had a good interview with Kevin PRince Boateng. Boateng in my view has always been an honest man and a passionate player. He loves to play the game, artfully, excitingly, but he has never been complicated in his words. I wonder if kevin prince will manage or involve himself in the ghana fa. I oppose Kev Egan concerning messi being rotated out, kev's position is correct strategically, tactically, but not communally, Messi said to the fans of FC Barcelona when the season started they will try to win the uefa champions league and all competitions. This is the grind, messi has put a challenge on himself to lead this team, when he doesn't have the henry/eto'o/david villa/neymar's of the world aside him. It is a challenge, I think messi can achieve it side his teammates but it will be a grind and it is a risk. I wonder about the copa america. can messi be run to the ground for fc barcelona even if it leads to all trophies and then lead argentina? Kev Egan is correct for me, the opposition to Valverde is aesthetics, though it is the real madrid success in the uefa champions league that supports it well. But what kev nor others said in the podcast is how pundits set up the fans. I recall the pep era henry/eto'o/messi/iniesta/xavi/busquets/puyol/pique/alves/abidal/yaya toure/mascherano. Pundits made it seem natural that la masia provided a near whole squad at the same time to the first team, when that is not natural. Pundits made it seem barca has to play the way from cruyff through rijkaard through guardiola. Pundits set up the fans as the internet potency to make pundit bugles louder that barcelona has only one way to play and that is why Valverde's success is actually viewed negatively. Though I suggest it is waranted cause Mourinho success from the same pundits is always treated as from an unfortunate beauty. Umtiti will allow for good depth, and big teams have that. Barca during the best seasons had that. 19:22 Atletico Di Madrid segment, The problem is to Morata, it is not enough time for him to gel side Griezzman. And having Costa side Morata will place griezzman under both for me. 22:01 Allegri segway, Juventus/Atleti is a battle, two teams who are artists in defense and have sharp attacks. It will not be boring for those who enjoy all actions on the pitch, not just goal scoring. 22:14 ATletico di madrid return segment, with the contract extension of Simeone, Diego Costa/Morata//Griezzman will come good more next season as they can start that way 24:10 MArio sUarez segment, yes Kay Murray gave him sweets. Good one des, Sergio ramos stays clean of sweets that is why he has more wins, good fun. 28:32 Celta Vigo segment, Kay remember good luck trinkets, I wonder if Kay has an image or can remember the name to the trinkets 28:55 Valencia segment, Marcelino needs sharpness in goal, sometimes a team is able to set up opportunities but doesn't have the sharpness to score. Does the valencia board have the confidence that marcelino can find a better balance? 30:08 SEvilla vs Villareal, Villareal is hungry and took advantage against a sevilla that losses something away from home. I wonder what is the cause in the drop. I call it proper footballers. proper footballers can play pumped up anywhere, anywhere, false players need a crowd 31:07 Getafe segment, getafe are one point from champions league spots, a nice story. 32:54 Gaby Amado yes, mon friday 12pm eastern 33:19 PSG segment, I disagree to Kay, Mbappe had a game where he won the game through his brilliant goal scored. but dani alves made the pass and the midfield of psg was not convincing against better opposition. Lo celso was from the Unai Emry idea. EMry wanted a creative player to get the ball moving fast, but neymar needs powerful midfielders, like Casemiro, paulinho, matuidi. Neymar is not like Mbappe. Mbappe is like CR7, a goal machine that in mbappe's case is only growing. Neymar is a talisman that like Messi can be the beautiful diamond that shines to all other on the pitch, and neymar's legend has a greater ceiling. I wish pundits would stop beefing up Mbappe like they did Messi. Messi proved he can get angry and be distasteful. Mbappe doesn't need to be viewed as the golden boy. let him be human. Tuchel has gotten away with a side that passess to slowly in midfield, does not have players cutting through midfield enough, while having a defense that is porous, relying on individual talent too much against top sides. PSG didn't beat a great team, with a masterclass in the champions league. PSG was a slow, unsharp, team that faced a team that didn't know how to press and was waiting for mistakes with haphazard play. Mbappe was not brilliant against Manchester United. He play positively or well, but he was not able to be the center, like CR7 he need a team to build under him and psg did not build, but was saved by a poorer manchester united. PSG through neymar side Mbappe will answer can cr7 play on the same team as Messi. I think psg can do it, but the media will try to break them up. 36:14 Monaco segment, the return of Jardim is everything. The problem with MArtins from sporting in portgual is that Atletico madrid had griezzman and Lemar. Like Coutinho, players have to comprehend when they need space to be themselves. Martins can come back stronger to Atleti. Every team when it has a talisman , like messi/griezmann has a player that is given a leeway that force other players to be uncomfortable at time. MArtins didn't handle that in atleti under griezzman but in Monaco he is free. Coutinho under Messi or Dybala under CR7 is a fine example of players who need a new spot. 37:55 Balotelli Segment, Balotelli was never a bad player. Only one that media chose to criminalize, beyond villainy, criminalize. Rudy Garcia knows Balotelli is one of the few true number nines, players who can play back to goal, can score a goal, and can pass in tight spaces. MArseille has in thauvin side others, the speed, movement, cutting nature. The truth is, OGC nice sell more than OM and Balotelli comprehended that while his career finally started in france, yes I don't see his inter milan/manchester city/ac milan /liverpool time as his athletic career, merely various big money moves where he played soccer in imbalanced organizations. But, OGC nice is not the top. PSG is the top in france and Olympique Lyonnais have their youth movement model so OM is the only other remaining big team in france compared to all others. he is in OM , make it happen balotelli. 38:58 OL segment, Fekir is out by card against Barcelona. OL is a dangerous team. If Barcelona is slow, unsharp, if Barcelona think against this youthful team they can lolligag the beautiful possession, they have a high chance of pay. 39:49 Lille Segment, Mourinho was in the audience at Lille. Karanka at the sans siro. i disagree to Kev Egan, if Nicola Pepe is like Drogba, pepe will be legendary. I agree to KAy, Mourinho is making moves to get a new job but he wants to have an organization unlike any he had before where Mourinho is content to the long term projest while making sure it is a long term project. I provided a link to a quote from mourinho's talks on beinsport in the links section on the trancript page. Des point is true, PSG essentially, places a cap on the remainder to ligue1, which has not changed its alignment since PSG qatari ownership came in. 42:43 Newport vs MCFC segment, learn how to pronounce padraig. Now I know how to say Pádraig Peter Harrington, the golfer. 45:26 Inter Milan vs sampdoria segment, Icardi is the continuation to the unbounded cinema verite that started in the 1970s but has grown through kardashians/trump to now icardi side his wife/agent. The public twitter argument between icardi side his sister, prove this is manufactured chaos, and why, cause chaos brings more public attention than happiness. Can ICardi be captain again? I imagine so, the inter team is full of leaders who don't need a badge. 49:39 AC Milan vs atalanta segment, Krzysztof Piątek and Lucas Paqueta are showing signs to something. but piatek better be careful. big teams love to buy players , young and sparkling, but being in another another team will influence your system. 51:20 Fiorentina vs SPAL segment, the spal player who scored , the spal ballboy, brother to the spal player, Allesandro, I wonder what he was told, i hope he is not confused 53:19 Zaniolo mother - I noticed his mother's account on instagram. her profile image is a kissing photo and she has from the latest photos alot of head shots and kissing face. I think she likes photos. The one thing interesting is Zaniolo's mom is married, i assume happily, she just like taking photos to herself, where she is appearing giddy or wanting. Zaniolo is embarassed it seems but I think it is unfair. His mother isn't inviting anyone to anything, merely enjoying her life. Be happy your mother can feel good about her body and all the guys talking about your mom crudely on the pitch or the locker room... man up against. I linked an article to Zaniolo's mother that include a link to her instagram in the link section in the transcript page 54:11 Turkey Superlig segment- Galatapalace is climbing, long season ahead 54:36 Bundesliga segment- Pizarro oldest player to score in that league. Nice snide Kay, Claudio Pizarro is younger than Zaniolo mom 55:18 POWER RANKING segment, check links section under the transcript in the transcript page linked in this video for images or video or articles 10 Jordi Masip Real Valladolid topping messi, lovely double save 9 Balotelli 3 goals in the last 4, Balo was never a miserable player but in france he found teams that seem to be well with him. 8 VAR flexing, in Spal Fiorentina , I wish you well Allesandro Voloti and big brother , a rule change to when VAR can be used based on time must be discussed, the spal/fiorentina match showed var can manipulate a match highly, now is it just? 7 MBappe , brilliant goal from a player only starting 6 EMLS league series, the future, but again, not for the fiscally poorest kids 5 SWapping goal celebrations, dybala/cr7 , balotelli/thauvin 4 Pizarro oldest scorer in bundesliga history 3 Piantek in AC Milan brace 2 Napoli all ballgirls Sao PAulo Cannavaro celebrating as a ball boy with diego maradona 1 20-0 Pro Piacenza had to play to save the club, seven 17 year olds against 11 with a 17 year old coach, legends in losing LINKS Link to audio on soundcloud https://soundcloud.com/footballcrazypodcast/what-to-do-about-marcelo-football-crazy-podcast-episode-89 Efifa world cup https://www.fifa.com/fifaeworldcup/ Bale Gesture https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OwZLQoZq0Y&feature=youtu.be a mourinho moment https://www.beinsports.com/us/premier-league/video/jose-mourinho-i-like-positive-player-power/1090723 Zaniolo mother, francesca costa https://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=4&objectid=12204557 Cannavaro celebrating side MAradona https://www.iamnaples.it/notizie-calcio-napoli/foto-il-14enne-fabio-cannavaro-festeggia-lo-scudetto-con-maradona/ Jordi Masip save messi penalty https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hsrrAOdZiAU Balotelli goal, and Thauvin Celebration https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HXHQDTDimTo Voloti goal is circa 1:58 http://www.espn.com/soccer/video/latest-videos/600/video/3777452 MBappe one touch brilliance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MiiIRJ5vwus EMLS doolsta victory https://www.mlssoccer.com/emls/2019/series-two/watch Dybala side cr7 share a goal celebration https://youtu.be/mF1-L_9B5JE?t=27 https://youtu.be/mF1-L_9B5JE?t=160 Claudio Pizarro - nice set piece https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfzIGCih51w Piatek- the beginning https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGG34Mu0LeQ Napoli ballgirls https://www.apnews.com/840b9d13c2344e608cb48841089a389c the junior female team https://twitter.com/en_sscnapoli/status/979363285404454917 the Pro Piacenza seven, i hope they are remembered or followed https://www.theguardian.com/football/2019/feb/17/pro-piacenza-beaten-20-0-serie-c-cuneo a photo https://www.goal.com/en-us/news/seven-man-pro-piacenza-thrashed-20-0-in-serie-c-farce/1uuk8m7h3b9gm1n1qt0259xs0i

    @Cynique The house person was also the least likely to oppose his "massah" or run away. That doesn't fit me. I am a hustler by nature but not in the streets. I am fortunate as a black man and live in a peaceful environment. The apology comes from a sincere place. I understand how my people have been psychologically attacked and pit against each other. I never want to come off as an enforcer of these principles or beliefs. I never want to make a black person feel bad about being black.

    The house nigga lives in the massa's house and enjoys all the privileges which come with this, but this doesn't mean he likes being a slave. The field nigga is breakin his back pickin cotton or tobacco or cane, which today would be equivalete to being a street person living in the inner city/ghetto hustling. i didn't get the idea that this is your lifestyle. You sound very middleclass but discontented. I described you as ambiguous because after you vent, you retreat and come very close to apologizing.

    @Cynique I think that's an emotional driven observation, however, you have a right to your opinion. Though I'd prefer that if I am going to be called a nigga - which I detest vehemently, please call me a field nigga. lol I always thought the house person held white people to the highest regard. This is where the confusion sets in. I thought the house person is the one who would defend massah any chance they get and knew the dominate relationship that existed between them and 'massah.' I don't feel like that describes my views. The reason I am presenting these ideas is to engage with my people on black social media. At the end of the day, we are all content creators. There is nothing ambiguous about my beliefs, however, I do struggle sometimes trying to present my case in a way as though I don't accidentally offend anyone. That's not why I am here. Being around so many well-spoken individuals, I don't want to come off as abrasive. I think we are all people at the end of the day. I don't hate anyone because that's not of my nature. I don't believe it is of my people's nature to hate - only respond to the hate that the world has shown us and keeps showing us. Love ya queen and thank you.

    @NubianFellow I don't think this guy has seen these posts. What i liked about him was that he was secure enough to not take himself too seriously. He poked fun at himself, and seemed mostly to be motivated by the "me too" movement, wanting to give women their due; black ones in particular. You and Pioneer were immediately on the defensive, with Pioneer right off the bat, insinuating about his gender, and you drilling and criticizing him, insecure reactions because you both regarded him as threat in spite of the fact that his approach was not aggressive.

    It's like you are passive aggressive when it comes to white people, and it's clear that your resentment toward them is simmering just beneath the surface. But you actually don't owe anybody an explanation or justification for this. This is your right. The person being most harmed by your ambivalence is you because your vacillating emotions frustrate you. Whether you realize it or not you are a house nigga who has a love-hate relationship with your status. LOL But i adore you. Why? Because your intelligence empowers you and i can sense that you are kind, and of course have a great affection for black woman. Some woman will be lucky to win your devotion. And you are a welcome addition to this board. I am from another generation, and my attitude toward whites came out my experience of growing up in a small northern interracial town and attending integrated schools. My resentment toward white folks was tempered by how me and my small group of peers never sought white approval or acceptance. We were comfortable in our own skins and liked the lives we created for ourselves. In high school i was engulfed in a white sea of classmates, casually acquainted with typical blonde, blue-eyed or swarthy white guys, all-american honor students and sports jocks, the last astronaut to walk on the moon being one of them. They were never mean or disrespectful to me. Black guys, were were not as kind. Because they had their own issues. And during both my high school and college days, white people would often seek us blacks out, wanting to be our friends and wanting to be taught how to dance and play bid whist and be cool. This was during the 1950s. Once the Civil Rights movement got underway, we were surrounded by do-gooder bleeding heart white Liberals, eager to show how unprejudiced they were, unaware of being benign racists steeped in white privilege. They were almost amusing. We were actually the type who would blow off black face, attributing it to white stupidity, not black shame. That's where i come from. No denying it is not the typical black experience nor one to be celebrated, but it is mine. (One that, nonetheless, didn't not my dull capacity for hating Donald Trump and all he represents. ) I married a black man whose background was similar to mine, and later worked around white men who would laugh and joke and flirt with me. And were kind. What can i say? As Mel has astutely noted, "we are not a single story people."

    @Delano It's just contradictory to certain key words that have been splashed around to define white men. Some words I will reflect on are words like "superior" and "strong." On a post about acknowledging the beauty of black women. LOL If these beliefs were true then certainly I wouldn't be able to scare him off. Wouldn't that be more like "weak" or "inferior" if the man runs away from opposition? That doesn't sound like the confident and supreme behavior I've been reading about them on the posts that have been used to describe them to me. But I actually felt I went easy on the dude. If I was able to scare him away so easily, what does that say about him? It also would have been silly for him to oppose the topic and not expect opposition. A "superior" person would know better... lol So if this guy is a real person and not a troll who is claiming his supremacy among certain types of black women, then I am sure I didn't scare him away. I am sure our ancestors said the same thing brotha. But the universe is fair and for every action there is a reaction.

    Bill Cosby admitted to buying drugs to use on young women that he was going to have sex. Some were starlets that he offered to help. He drugged them rapped then and then bought their silence. What part isnt clear. Je has joked about drugging women on three separate occasions. Two of which i posted. I had heard he was nasty pice if work by a friwnd who worked in the industry. Yiu think he doesn't belong in jail, okay. All if that sounds pretty clear. Perhaps it is not I yhat needs someone to clarify the situation.

    This statement is confusing @Delano and it seems to inidicate that you really did not understand my last reply. Perhaps someone else can explain this to Del....? This is probably because to don't answer question and go off on tangents. Like the recent Cosby case you condemn me for supporting a rapist while comlpletely missing the point that I disagree with the grounds for his conviction. While i know you disapprove of his overall behavior, as do i, I still don't know what you think about the case becuase you refuse to view it in isoltation or respond to my question about it. @NubianFellow you call Obama a sellout in public around other Black people-- that is you rappeal in my mind on the forum you are fearlesss. People get way too emotional when you criticize Obama, so i don't even bother.... Again, Nubian's combined response to @Loren Carle's post is far more nuansed and complex beause he is human (I hope Loren appreciates it). People want black and white, uncomplicated answers, but people and opinions are usually not that simple... that is what Twitter is for.

    @Pioneer1 Here is a pic and some refeences about the Ararat Mountains of which, again are located in East Turkey. These mountains have been well scripted in ancient times, and are distinct from the Caucasus systems, Mt. Olympus way over in Europe and even other mountain systems in Turkey: MOUNT ARARAT is today called Agri Dagi and is a part of the Kackar Mountains. Other ancient scripts called this mountain Urartu. Presently, the nearest city is Erzurum Ararat, MountMount Ararat, viewed from Turkey.© Vladislav Jirousek/Dreamstime.com Kackar mountains Mount Ararat, Turkish Agri Dagi, volcanic massif in extreme eastern Turkey, overlooking the point at which the frontiers of Turkey, Iran, and Armenia converge. ... https://www.britannica.com/place/Mount-Ararat … Turkey’s highest mountain, Mount Ararat (Agri), reaches 16,945 feet (5,165 metres) close to the borders with Armenia and Iran. … https://www.britannica.com/place/Turkey#ref482388 @Pioneer1 Here is a reference for the Lesser Caucasus system. It does not connect to Ararat but in Northeast Turkey, there are mountains that are nearer to it: The Lesser Caucasus mountain system does not have a single continuous mountain range. It consists of four main parts: ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lesser_Caucasus Lesser Caucasus, also called Caucasus Minor is second of the two main mountain ranges of Caucasus mountains, of length about 600 km (370 mi). The western portion of the Lesser Caucasus overlaps and converges with the high plateau of Eastern Anatolia, in the far northeast of Turkey. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lesser_Caucasus The Ararat mountains systems are below the Pontic mountains and etc. The Ararat systmes are extreme East, as I said earlier, the ARmenian history, initally is connected to the Caucasus cultures, but later, yes, the Cholchians did migrate southwest to Turkey. There is nothing in script that links Mt. Ararat to the early stories of the Caucasus people. The Lesser Caucasus shares a border with ARmenia as I did say before.

    @Pioneer1 In Texas, or in that part of Texas, he was definitely White--Lily White. The high school was predominantly White and Mexican, almost 50% for both, with only a very small minority of Black students. However, the Black community was very strong. A lot of the Black students were well rounded students, and a significant aspect of the school programs, such as the sports programs, and the marching band and etc. The Black community did not rely only on the school programs for their children, but had a strong community base. The different Church communities would come together and have social functions for the Black kids. They would pass out invitations for social functions like 'dances', 'recitals', beauty competitions, and etc. and there was always a big attendance. They would send buses, vans, and cars, around the community to pick up students for these functions and different churches would host certain affairs. It was one of the best experiences of my life. There was a lot of confidence amongst the Black kids in this community.

    LOL, this situation sounds like what Stever Harvey told Monique. He told her, [paraphrasing] 'Monique, this is rich people's problem. When Cosby paid her off, she definitely wasn't poor, well, for me, I would have been rich! LOL. But I guess, for her, it was not enough money to keep her quiet for ever. ARe you serious!? Well, come to think of it, I think this is a significant issue! But, I also think that those other women were deceptive too. They seem to have wanted something out of these sexual relationships, especially if he didn't have to really drug them. They went along with it, and knowing that he was creepy. That's why I do not understand why it seems, all of a sudden, they went after him like that. Are you kidding!? I didn't know that she continued to see him and after being paid a large sum. But tecnically though, it doesn't matter how much money he paid her, he was wrong. But what crime? If it was consensual, then what crime did Cosby commit? Was the charge, drugging his victims without their knowledge? That would be a crime because, a person could die from having a bad reaction to certain drugs. I think I answered my own question. I really didn't follow the case.

    Black Women Are Beautiful Naturally

    So true! On this score @Mel Hopkins I have stories of abusive nurturers, nurturers who have abused little Black boys, and took it out on their sons due to their bad experiences with Black men, and I believe this too, is a part of the problem in this world. I don't believe that Patriarchal system is only to blame for racism.

    LIke I said, she was referring to her husband, . . . who chose her! That's her personal choice. But I understand that you are saying that she picked him because he was White. @Pioneer1 I feel that you are cherry picking. You are ignoring her statements in how she had bad relationships with previous men, that were Black. Now, I am going to read into this statement, because I can relate, as a BLack woman; I feel that I know where she is coming from, in that in many cases, Black men do not respect Black women, and that is putting it mildly!!! I don't understand why you are conveniently ignoring this truth!!! But as for me, yes, I have found a BLack man that, though not perfect in the beginning, but adores me, is kind to me, and etc. I have had many positive relationships with Black men and so, I personally, made a hard decision that I wanted to marry a Black AFrican-typed man or else, I was simply not going to get married. But, I tell you, I see several Black women married to White and other men, and they are a match, for certain. @Pioneer1 Well, I have to say, that when I hear Black men justify Black women, negatively as the reason they want White women, I do NOT like it at all. But, I would never attack someone personally, who has stated that he had bad relationships, was treated badly, and etc. This too, is true, IMO. There are some Black women that behave very disrespectful to Black men. I makes me cringe. Oh but yes you are. You are putting this label on her, IMO.

    @Pioneer1 You are way out of line! And you are completely off point. REgarding Black men that are homosexual, that is their choice so, what business is it of mine? I thought I said this before, but if I have not; I have a male friend who seemed to me to be homosexual, although, I never troubled him to ask at the time, but I later heard that he actually was and began to dress as a female and he changed his name. This young fellow, never knew his father since he was born. His father was imprisoned and so, he was raised by his grandmother. I have also heard Black homosexuals that were molested when they were little children and these are just two situations that causes me to not be judgmental, at all!!! So yes, to answer your question, I will defend BLack homosexuals, generally speaking. But, PIoneer, how dare you equate homosexuals to Black women who, for what ever reason, choose to be in an interracial relationship! You gotta nerve! I did not defend 'Black women' who call White men better than BLack men. As I said, earlier, This man chose to marry Mel, and so, they both chose to commit to a marriage. I didn't get that same understanding as you, in that she 'calls White men better than Black men'. I understand that her past relationships with Black men were not good, and the man that she married came along and she feels that he was 'the Best Man' for her. I think that you are reading into her explanation too deep. I can understand why Black men would jump to this conclusion that you have, but, now, you are accusing me, and I didn't even make that choice. Wow! @Pioneer1 I feel that Black Homosexuals and Black men and women that engage in inter-racial relationships are not counter-productive to the progress of BLack society as the primary focus, but I feel that it is how the government exploits and uses many ploys and these 'groups' tht you mention may or may not fall into that category depending on the individuals. ANd I feel the the destruction of the Black family began a long time ago, when White Supremacist systems were able to set up. Were these systems able to set up due to our ancestors? I say yes, but when Black people attack other Black people as a solution to the problem is so wrong. Ah!!! See, you completely ignored my defense regarding your reaction to 'Arianne Grande'! Now this is interesting. I see your behavior as being 'White Supremacist' in this case for the initial reason and now, also in that you completely avoided addressing this subject. You only continue to berate Black women. This is amazing. So White women can be in your environment and Black men can flirt with them, but Black women are to wear clothes covering themselves from the head-to-toe, with the exception of the eyes, vis-a-vis the Muhammad Ali, reference you posted!? Ah!!!
