  1. All of my sistas here have really done themselves proud in offering explanations about their approaches to interacting with other women - as well as men. Each testament was flavored with their individual personalities and provided clues to why they are so impressive. I have concluded that one difference between them and me is that i am more argumentive and when it comes to engaging with men, i like to question everything they say just to be contrary even as, on this forum, i cringed at their written responses that had little regard for being detailed-oriented or proof read, full of disjointed sentences, misspelled, omitted, improperly-used words, and incorrect punctuation, wondering if these careless lapses carried over into other areas of their lives and have anything to do with their claims of black male victimization. I am really not sure whether your parting shot was a lame attempt at humor or if you really think that i actually entertained ideas of "hooking up" with pioneer. 😩 EW. But, I understand how observers might conclude that making him my whipping boy is motivated by my having secret designs on him. He modestly interprets my "harassment" as an attraction to the "masculine energy" which he imagines he exudes. Sooo untrue. I, myself, always felt that his aura was like a drag, mired in the sticky emanations that seeped from his pompous assertions. But dream on, pioneer. As usual, what you decide upon takes on a life on its own and settles into a permanent residence in your warped mentality. Be advised that you have earned a place in my "Obnoxious People Hall of Fame". I'd also like to clear up what i think others might suspect: that i looked upon this site as my personal domain and that i jealously guarded my status here, considering all other comers a threat, and that i competed with them for Troy's attention. In response, i say: it's not like this forlorn forum is bristling with activity and broad participation and enjoys widespread recognition. On a good day, there might be 4 posters here, bickering or exchanging one-liners. I'm told there is a substantial lurker audience who, for some reason, never make themselves known and are who pioneer plays to, positive that they are in his corner, rooting him on. Does this sound like a scenario that my life would revolve around, something that would bolster my self-esteem and make my day? Not. What benefits accrue from Troy's approval? Sure, he's a great guy but my being a fixture on his discussion board enhanced or enabled me in no way. My critics got it all wrong. So, yes, Troy, remove the "Cynique" title from this site. Free me from having to see what should be Cynique's Corner instead of "Cyniques' Corner", which is how it incorrectly appears. i'm pretty much history here. "Connie" has more fun on Facebook, hangin' out with my homies, laughing at memes and arguing with a broad spectrum of strangers, Mark Zuckerberg be damned. Sure, out of curiosity, I'll be checking things out here from time to time - if you don't block me. Thanks for everything. We cool. (That goes for you too, Del.) To my girls, i love you all. It's been "real". 😙 Buh-Bye!
  2. i don't feel like doing that because i don't really give a damn about Farrahkhan and you and pioneer's hero worship of him.
  3. Because you strongly engage in debating with me. i fight fire with fire. Mel and Chevdove are cool. @Pioneer1Watta crock of psycho-babbo bull shit. It's almost too absurd for me to dignify with a response. I 've never seen you, never talked to you in person and the only thing i have to go by is the crap you post which i never find has much merit as exemplified by your above post.What you call masculine energy i call the resistance of opposites poles and just for the record i like Del a hell of lot more than i do you. There's nothing about you for me to be attracted to. You guys must really think i have nothing better to do than sit around and wallow in jealousy and compete for your attention. Get outta here. You flatter yourselves. My main concern in life is waking up every morning. Men, in general, and y'all, in particular, do not command a great deal of my concern because the more i come in contact with men, the more they get on my nerves. i have to try and rein myself in to keep from saying some of the things i really think about you because i'm trying to not be so hypercritical. But believe whatever makes you feel good about yourself. Obviously pioneer's ego thrives on his fantasizing and he concocts rationales because he can't deal with rejection so, as usual, his imagination works over time. Excuse me while i go barf. And i think i need a hiatus from this presumptuous egomanical drivel. @TroyAnd feel free to remove my name from this site. I'm serious. Things have run their course. And i'm bored and tired.
  4. Well, "vile" is your word. "anti-semitic" is mine, and Farrakhan incriminated himself when he admitted he called certain jews "satanic". He never denies being anti-semitic because he geniuinely has a big problem with jews. i have heard Farrakhan speak out against Jews, and his litany never changes so i'm sure he's not saying anything good about Jews on FaceBook
  5. I indirectly disagree with Chevdov's suspicions about a sinister conspiracy to feminize black men by promoting homosexuality,
  6. @Troywhy don't you speak to my legitimate observation about how black folks would go ballistic if a controversial white person regularly came on a black owned site and railed against an organization like BLM or civil rights and militant black organizations of the past like SNICK and the Black Panthers. Farrakhan, himself, refers to the jews he admittedly bad mouths as "satanic", so this proves that he is singling out certain jews he's doesn't appreciate and utilizing a platform supplied by a jewish person to diss his people. It's beside the point whether Zuckerberg is wrong in doing this. My point has to to do with my doubting if the situation would be different if it was reversed. Have you forgotten that in my quest for the truth, i no longer give black folks a pass just because they are black. BTW, i also think that Twitter should not provide Trump with a platform. He needs to get his own media outlet to deliver his fake news.
  7. @TroyAn interesting explanation but not entirely on the mark. I don't know about Mel, but my always being in step with her is not because we are both females but because she a smart astute, insightful person who i find easy to side with because she makes sense and is amusing. I don't find any reason to oppose Chevedove, either, whether i disagree with her or not. She's full of documented information. I know very little about the subjects she posts and she educates me and doesn't have an arrogant bone in her body. i also felt this way about Chris Burns, who is a man. i am not a sensitive person and there is not a man on this board who could hurt my feelings because insults just roll off my back. I don't take myself that seriously. As for pioneer i couldn't care less whether he stays or goes. i'm not trying to run him away. i just don't feel like i have an obligation to like everybody. Some people are just the epitome of what turns me off and familiarity breeds contempt if you get my drift, but that's life. You and Del have areas of expertise that make you interesting people. A lot of what i say is off the top of my head. i have a store on knowledge in my mental files. Sometimes it's accurate, sometimes not. Whatever
  8. Bwahahaha, Del. i knew where you were coming from. i don't understand why Farrakhan and his indignant groupies think Zuckerberg, who is a jew, is just going to sit idly by and let people like Farrakhan and white Alex jones and a bunch of other alt right anti semites defile jews on a site that he owns. Black people including the righteous Farrakhan would be apoplectic if a jewish racist came on a black-owned site and bad-mouthed black people. Farrakhan is the epitome of someone who thinks he's a privileged character. Are black people now boycotting FaceBook because of his expulsion? i doubt it. He's yesterday's news. 😴
  9. "Never mind" is right. You have always lacked mental acuity, dummy.
  10. The turn table, a speaker, an "arm" that a needle is screwed into are what comprise a phonograph or record player. They all work together to produce sound. They were not "highly modified" in the ensuing years. There was no need to change them. Whatever music or sound was produced was what changed, not the equipment. CD and tapes were the different ways of producing sounds
  11. Who gives a damn what you believe? You offer no references except a bunch of opinionated subterfuge. Unlike you, i pursue the truth, and am not beholden to an afro-centric agenda.
  12. it's a wonder you didn't try to portray the prod as a component of a turn table.
  13. @Pioneer1Strange looking format your admission is in... This day should be marked on the calendar! Now all we need is an answer as to why Mexico, Haiti, and Jamaica being a part of the Western Hemisphere has anything to do with hip-hop, rap, breakdancing and turn table MCing.
  14. No, that's not comparable to my forgetting about the Americas from back in my grade school social studies class, something which did come back to me once my memory was prodded. Farrakhan bores me. He and i are the same age, from the same era, and nothing he has to say is new or of interest to me. zzzzzzzz The same goes for your advice.
  15. No. Pioneer still can't bring himself to acknowledge that using a turntable to create a different genre of music does not make it synonymous with inventing a turntable. @Pioneer1YOU are still wrong about this, and everybody here knows the chances of you admitting it are nil. You are trying to divert attention from your inability to acknowledge you are ever incorrect by harping on a very ambiguous designation, considering that Haiti and Jamaica were colonized by the European countries of France and Britain and in the modern vernacular are more commonly identified as being a part of the Caribbean. We realize that your sanity depends on your winning this argument but get a grip and stop playing the victim. You are stumbling over your ego in trying to take a victory lap. LOL
  16. No. Pioneer still can't bring himself to acknowledge that using a turntable to create a different genre of music does not make it synonymous with inventing a turntable.
  17. I corrected myself, something you never do, and later i also elaborated on my correction by classifying these countries as being a part of "greater America", a fact you couldn't come up with because you were too busy sucking up to Mel and Troy, begging them to agree with you. And you conveniently ignored all of the facts i did offer about Haiti, Jamaica and Mexico, opting instead to cherry pick what is an ambiguous status of these countries, and you never explained why their being located in the American hemisphere had anything to do with the subject being discussed. Now go change your pee-soaked shorts. LOL
  18. I did not include Puerto Rico in my statement because It is a possession of the USA. The natives of these other 3 countries when asked what they are, would in all probability say Haitian , Jamaican or Mexican, not American, although technically their countries are located in the American hemisphere.
  19. @Del I followed your advice about looking things up on the interet and this is what i found about headphones. Of course there are those who will dispute this and claim they orginated with hip-hoppers and rappers. Brandes radio headphones, circa 1920 Headphones originated from the telephone receiver earpiece, and were the only way to listen to electrical audio signals before amplifiers were developed. The first truly successful set was developed in 1910 by Nathaniel Baldwin, who made them by hand in his kitchen and sold them to the United States Navy
  20. in lecturing Mel on this, why don't you get specific and give quotes that can be attributed to me as not being factual. Below is a direct quote from me: "Haiti is a country located on the island of Hispaniola, east of Cuba in the Greater Antilles archipelago of the Caribbean Sea and covers 27,560 square kilometers of land and 190 square kilometers of water, making it the 149th largest nation in the world with a total area of 27,750 square kilometers. Jamaica is a beautiful island paradise located in the western Caribbean or the West Indies.Kingston is the capital city of Jamaica. It has a population of 937,700, and is located on a latitude of 18 and longitude of -76.79. Kingston is also the political center of Jamaica, which is considered a Constitutional Monarchy, and home to its Ceremonial head of state. The country of Mexico is separated from the United States of America by a border. Your assertion that these distinct independent countries with their individual cultures are part of the USA does not apply. " The only non factual thing about that quote is that you didn't say that these countries were part of the United States of America. OK. And in the following statement below, I did refer to them as being "Americas" - as in the broad sense of the word as it applies to continental America. And, i still question what whether Haiti, Jamaica and Mexico are a part of greater America or not has to do with the subject being discussed, a question you continue to dodge. In the above statement about Del, your "maintaining" that the turntable came from AfroAmericans has not been proven right by you. Using your twisted logic, Charlie Parker invented the saxophone because he played Be-Bop on it, or Scott Joplin invented the piano because he played Ragtime on it. This whole debate is much ado about nothing because everybody agreed that Rap, Hip-Hop, Break-dancing and turntable MCing were originated by people of color. You just had to pollute the discussion with your silly rejection of white Thomas Edison being the inventor of the turntable, and your ignorance about who invented headphones. And in the end, you haven't proved yourself anymore knowledgeable on this subject than anyone else. At least Del's input is not second hand. Nor was mine. I grew up in a household where, dating back to the 1940s, my brother always had phonographs and records players equipped with turn tables.
  21. Well one of the things that come to my mind when Jews are excoriated in public orations reminiscent of Hitler, is nazism because Hitler was a nazi and this is what he did. Just because Farrakhan didn't preside over a holocaust doesn't exempt him from having something in common with nazis. i don't call Christians "nazis" because they don't publicly disparage Jews. i do call them and anybody else "homophobic" when they condemn gays on the basis of their religious beliefs. I also call anybody who advocates female submissiveness a "male chauvinist". i don't really detest Farrakhan. What piques my cynicism are the many who idolize him and think he can do no wrong and lavish praise on him for converting convicts and losers into a rigid albeit productive lifestyle that only a relatively few follow, something which begs the question of people like this. Since what Farrakhan does is so great and inspiring why don't they join his cult? The NOI numbers are relatively small in comparison to the overall black population whose members are either helped by other black organizations or who have the gumption to make it on their own. Farrakhan is simply a charismatic rabble rouser with very limited success, a slickster who owes his popularity among blacks to his ability to piss white folks off. Farrakhan was recently invited to his church by Father Michael Phleger, a white militant Catholic priest who pastors a black parish in Chicago, to speak at a rally supporting his right to free speech. Farrakhan showed up grinning from ear to ear, so happy this white man had thrown him a few crumbs that he declared he didn't hate all Jews, Just the satantic ones. LOL
  22. @Pioneer1Do you even know what a turn table is? The round device that is a component of a phonograph and that spins around and is where a grooved disc is placed on?? The two pictured are just alike. They are simply packaged differently. And just what is the relevance of your referring to Jamaica and Haiti and Mexico as part of the Americas? What does this have to do with hip-hop and rap originating in the city of New York in the United States of America, especially since nobody said the that these genres originated elsewhere and were created by white people. Why make Mel do your work for you? You can't concoct an answer yourself, just like you couldn't truthfully verbalize whether you ever lived around Atlanta or Chicago, and couldn't find any reference to what you imagined i said about farmers and the depression so you just stall. What a transparent phony you are. LOL BTW, headphones were invented waay before hip hop and rap came on the scene.
