  1. @Pioneer1As if black people have a choice about being pro-black. Monique doesn't have to be a black nationalist to be pro-black. All she has to be is a black person who is anti-white when it comes to blacks being exploited.
  2. @Pioneer1You don't have a clue as to what "these women" are "angry" about. Nobody here is angry but you, and that's because the women here regularly dismiss your cock-eyed opinions about black women as being stupid.
  3. @Pioneer1You delivered a cheap shot, making snide reference to the white guy's gender because you are so envious and bitter. Your transparency is glaring. i do not indiscriminately like white men. That's your rationale for my dissing you while tolerating a civil white guy who was sincere in his curiosity about black women. i wed and was married to a black man for 50 years and would rather be in the company of Troy or Del or Nubian Fellow or Gibran or Kalexander than any white man i know. i appreciate anyone with a droll wit and Lorne's self-effacing references to his blond pony tail and red
  4. 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.
  5. @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.
  6. 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 affectio
  7. These responses don't push me into the arms of white men, but they do crystallize the reason why certain black men make me roll my eyes upward. If i was a young woman on the market, looking for a boyfriend, I'd wouldn't set my sites on somebody who eats drinks and sleeps black fanaticism, constantly nagging and droning and pouting about how a black woman should represent what they have decided is acceptable. Guys who can only be described as envying white men who have out-foxed black ones and now run the world. You have completely overreacted to the post from the innocuous white man, and Me
  8. "Other words", being your words which automatically voids their substance. Not all white men are powerful or intelligent or kind, obviously. (That's your subconscious concession to white supremacy) If I find those 3 traits in a kind, secure white man who treats me with consideration and respect, then he's easy to find appealing. And i certainly don't have to justify what would attract me to a white man. It's my prerogative to prefer one over a black man like you. Fortunately, there are other black men around who are not like you who, themselves, are secure, powerful, intelligent, and kind
  9. You are assuming that he "calls himself Loren". Does it ever occur to you that "Loren" was what he was named by his parents? When it's spelled "Loren" and not "Lauren", this name can be male or female. And speaking of spelling, the word is spelled "definitely" not "definately" as i have repeatedly called to your attention. You are so quick to parse words and give their root, why don't you investigate the Latin etymology of this word. Of course you will refuse to do this because this little lapse is a clue as to why your mind works the way it does when it comes to big issues.
  10. Guest Loren Carle Guests Report post (IP: 204.113.88.245) This guest post was buried in the "Black Women are Beautiful' thread, invisible because it had not been approved by a monitor. I rarely exercise my monitor privilege on this site but this was an interesting commentary so i took the liberty of approving it and hope Troy doesn't have a problem with my doing so.

  11. i have yet to hear what you don't agree with about the Nation of Islam! You swear by everything Elijah Muhammad and Farrakhan say. The obvious question raised by your "facts" is why don't you have the courage of your convictions and marry a Muslim woman or 2 or 3 of them instead of laying up with airheads who call you "Daddy"? How can you like the results of the Nation of Islam lifestyle and not live their lifestyle? Your inconsistencies taint your credibility. Your whole vibe is one of telling others to do as you say do, not as you do. A role model you are not. When it
  12. Well, it's not like these men get off without paying the price. They are bribing their way out of incarceration. But their reputations are irreversibly damaged. Cosby's crimes were just silly. Drugging white women to make sure they wouldn't reject him. Other choices made more sense when it came to his sex life, But as a black man he didn't think big.
  13. Do you? Ali's sentiments about how woman should dress are only true in your view, a view which is no more valid than any other. So what? i could dig up posts where i said that people think they can shut down an "opponent" by making reference to something either Malcolm or MLK said, - both of whom said things that time proved wrong. i've always said my regard for Malcolm was limited to the frustrated reaction he could evoke in white folks.
  14. i don't know what Mel's response to Pioneer will be when it comes to her ex-husband, but she sure got it right in her assessment of that loud mouth hypocrite Ali, whose choices of women were always examples of those consistent with western standards, - always bragging about them having long pretty hair which was anything but kinky. He also regularly referred to joe Fraizer as a monkey. In his heyday he was typical of misogynisitic chauvinistic men of islam, expecting their women to be totally subservient and obedient to their dumb asses, but in his final years, Ali was a helpless cripple at
  15. What i tend to be comfortable with is that the consequences of our decisions are already in place, but we do have a free choice as to which decision we make. e.g. A plane crash is meant to happen. If i choose at the last minute to not take the doomed plane, i will not be killed. However, if i choose to board the plane because i really want to get someplace fast, i will be killed. I am free to make a choice as to which predetermined outcome befalls me. This is in line with there being multi verses waiting for us to shift into, depending on which decision we make. i may no longer exist in
  16. Seems like Cosby considers himself a political prisoner and has compared himself to Martin Luther King, who was once jailed for his civil disobedience. There is apparently an interview out there somewhere where he talks about his incarceration. He is embracing the role of a martyr who white America is making an example of, and a lot of black folks, especially male ones, are buying into this. He may yet reverse the tide and clean up his legacy. Nothing surprises me any more. His sympathizers can take solace from how Harvey Weinstein, CBS CEO Les Mooves, and certain other accused white cel
  17. What's left unsaid is that Monique is not exceptionally talented or funny. Yes, she won an Oscar which didn't really call for her to do anything but play herself. She hasn't got enough star power to command what she thinks she deserves. IMO.
  18. I just heard on TV that Bill Cosby said that he's finding being in prison not so bad, and that is an interesting experience - or something to that effect. i just caught the tail end of the report.
  19. @ChevdoveOK, i didn't see your first answer. Sorry. So, Adam and Eve were not the first people. There were others who were enough like Adam and Eve to reproduce with them. If Cain and his sister were half-siblings, then they didn't have either the same mother or the same father. which begs the question, did either Adam or Eve cheat on the other? These questions may seem facetious but people speak with such certainty about biblical accounts, as if they were there when they happened or have a hot-line to the personal thoughts of "god". I see why the bible is referred to as the scriptures be
  20. Chicago just officially acknowledged one of its favorite adopted daughters.
  21. For years, during online discussions, i have been attributing the conclusions i reach to my having taken an over view of things and looked at the big picture. Reaction to this has indicated a total disregard for my panoramic perspective. Now, a serendipitous epiphany has erupted in our midst, giving pause, inspiring a fatalistic view of life, one requiring a resignation to the profound idea that everything happens for inexplicable reasons beyond our comprehension, a declaration of dependence replete with the idea that we are all just pawns in a game which rules out free will. Wat
  22. i still want to know the explanation given for there being women for Cain and Abel and Seth to mate with in order to procreate the line. Did they commit incest with their mother Eve? Is this whole story a symbolic way of saying that there were other humans elsewhere( the land of nod, East of Eden) in addition to the "first" ones in Eden/Africa.
  23. Beauty, beauty beauty. Looks are superficial. How often does it have to be prated that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder"! And who said that being natural is synonymous with beauty, anyway? Nudity is natural, but we wear clothes that shield us and reflect our style as opposed to flaunting genitals and breasts and butts because these are things we are born with. Furthermore, personality, intelligence and good character have more longevity than looks. What's really masculine is if a man is secure enough in his own identity that he can accept a woman vetting his looks the same way he vetts
  24. @Troy One reason i find quantum physics compelling is because of its postulation that what you see, changes when you look away from it; that your eyes integrate reality. That is so profound! And it has also demonstrated how an object can be two places at once. Its principles are mind-boggling, and finding the god particle is on quantum physics' "to-do" list. Meta-physics is my second favorite "science". Question for Chevdove. What is the explanation for the wives of Cain and Abel? Where did they come from?? Are they symbolic of something?
