    I'm Changing...........

    Chev I understand clearly what you are saying. But it ALL eventually goes back to intelligence....not of the individual but of the African race collectively. If you say the problem was slavery and what happend to our people, why weren't we intelligent enough NOT to allow ourselves to be enslaved? If you say the problem is that African people are being targeted, why aren't we intelligent enough MOVE from out of the sights of whoever is targeting us and flip the script and TARGET THEM instead? If you say too many of our people are conditioned and brainwashed by the racism that exists within them, why aren't they smart enough to recognize this, overcome it, and eliminate it from their minds and community? Again, it all goes back to being intelligent enough and smart enough to recognize your problem and solve it. Because if lack of intelligence is the REAL problem....then even if you manage to eliminate White racism it will only be replaced with Chinese racism or Arab racism or racism from some other group who is smart enough to come in and take advantage of our people. Remember that BEFORE the Europeans came into Africa....the Arabs were there enslaving Africans. Now AFTER the Europeans....the Chinese are moving into part of Africa taking over much of the land today! If it's not one group taking advantage of Africans, then it's another, and another, then another, ect..... Pan-African people world wide need to figure out a way to increase their intelligence and smarts so that they will stop being victimized by other groups.
  2. I've been changing and reconsidering my political positions and the way I think about society period over the past few weeks, but several incidents that I've witnessed the past few days are really accelerating those reconsiderations and changes. I've suspected it for a while, but I'm begining to believe more and more it's not White Racism that is the main reason so many AfroAmericans are in the condition they find themselves in today, but Black Ignorance/Stupidity. Both seem to feed off eachother, but Black Ignorance/Stupidity seems to take precedence and may very well be a major reason White Racism was able to flourish so through out history in the first place. I'm also beginning to believe that many cases of contemporary White Racism may very well be logical REACTIONS to the Black Ignorance/Stupidity being witnessed. I'm not sure how to describe the direction I'm leaning because I'm definately not a Republican or Conservative. Perhaps a Pragmatic Reformist would be a more accurate description of my position based on how I've been viewing society in general and AfroAmericans in specific lately.

    AfroAmerican Men Need A CODE

    Chev I just don't understand how 'SAGGIN' could become so common except to say that propaganda byway of certain music celebrities or something has caused it to become common. It is so crazy to me though. I remember it started in the 1980s and I thought it would die out, Oh But NOOOOoooo! When I was in MIddle America in a predominantly Black community, most of the young men were saggin. In Florida this style is common. NOw even a lot of females are Saggin. ....... leadership..... Not only does saggin' look sloppy and immature, but it makes the boys walk funny.....like penguins. Or like apes who try to stand on their weaker hind legs and have to rock from side to side to keep balance. When I was a kid back in the 70s AfroAmerican men used to STRUT and BOUNCE when they walked; they had style. Now look at how so many of the young men walk; they have to wobble and rock from side to side to keep their pants on. Another problem is women often look at how firm a man's butt is in judging him. Black men used to be known for having the "best butts". Sagging makes a 19 or 20 year old man's butt look flabby and sloppy like a sack of potatoes moving around under his pants. This conditioning does not start in this government though. The origin of this conditioning goes way back in time. If it didn't start with this government OR under the influence and control of White people, then when and where did it start? And WHO started it? Because they were not first. No one stocked other kinds of women to condition them to be negative like the Black African-typed women have been targeted. That's why I believe the Black woman has been targeted to be influenced, however when you have both AfroAmerican men AND women who seem to take pride in the "strength" and aggressive attitude and behavior of our women....don't you believe our people share in some of that responsibility? Some outside force may have targeted our people for certain behaviors, but that doesn't mean we have to voluntarily co-sign and perpetuate it. But operating under 'the White House' and trying to build as much wealth and power in this life' can be very misleading too. That to me, is a short sighted vision. I agree. We need balance. That's why I personally believe that we should seek pleasure and wealth in BOTH this life as well as the eternal life to come. It is my belief that by maintaining a strong sense of morality and righteousness in this life we stand a better chance for a more successful existence in the life to come. As far as the economy goes........ America is for sale. The dollar is shrinking because it's purposely being de-valued for globalistic purposes. Under GLOBALISM, there are no more borders or economic sovereignty. A minority of wealthy oligarchs are controling most of the world's economies so that most of the currencies and the governments that oversee them are becoming less and less relevant.
  4. The AfroAmerican community is very divided but AfroAmerican males are EVEN MORE divided than the AfroAmerican community in general! The root of this division is the lack of a clear MORAL/ETHICAL CODE that exists among us. Simply put, most AfroAmerican men can't agree with eachother on what is RIGHT or WRONG morally or on how one should conduct themselves in society. And because of this we either go by our own OPINIONS or let OTHERS from outside of our demographic including Europeans, Arabs, or even AfroAmerican women whom we want to impress or sleep with influence our thinking and behavior.....and then often end up fighting with EACHOTHER over these externally created differences. Some say a man should only have one wife. Others say that's the White man's way...a Black man should have SEVERAL. Yet others say a man should be able to marry a HUSBAND if he wishes. No agreement. Some AfroAmerican men say that what the Bishop at Aretha Franklin's funeral did with Ariana Grande was wrong. Others say grabbing on some titties is OK. Other's THINK it's Ok but just won't say it and will sneak and do it. Others think it's SICK and perverted. No agreement. Some AfroAmerican men think it's OK to sell drugs if you can't find any other employment. Others say it's absolutely wrong no matter what. Others say not only is it wrong but the dealer should be shot and killed. Others BRAG about selling it Again...no agreement. Obviously Caucasians, Asians, and other races of BOTH sexes differ among themselves and even AfroAmerican women have THEIR differences as well, but they seem to agree MORE among eachother than we do AND they also seem to come togther and defend eachother AGAINST outside demographics who seek to come in and assault them where as many Afroamerican men not only attack eachother but also SIDE WITH others who may have a problem with a group of us. Despite our differences in education, social status, wealth, and personality.....the fact is NO ONE ELSE is going to see the world and understand it the way another AfroAmerican man does. It's time for AfroAmerican men to put atleast SOME of our differences to the side and develop a CODE among ourselves.
  5. Chev You know what? No lie, but as soon as I saw the words "my inspiration to physical fitness" I KNEW you were going to talk about Ernestine Shepherd. I acutally mentioned her on a post a few years ago. She looks great for ANY age, but the fact that she's in her 80s is an added benefit. For some reason I find that an already attractive woman becomes MORE attractive to me when I find out she's much older than I assumed she was. Probably because it's a subconscious manifestation of good genes. Some people are just genetically GIFTED with strong great looking physiques even unto old age. You can always improve yourself but people should realize that no matter how hard they work out or how well they eat, there's a good chance they will NEVER look like these people. They simply don't have the genes that allow it.   One of my kids pedaled a bike with a group all the way from California across America to Virginia. That sounds like something off of Forrest Gump....lol. Well sis...... I don't know what kind of shape you're in PHSYCIALLY and I wish you all the luck. But based on the few exchanges I've had with you, your MIND is absolutely gorgeous! I told one of my dudes the other day talking about the Cardi B - Nicky Minaj incident that as a man I would rather have a 250 pound Oprah who is intelligent, can hold a conversation, and acts like a lady....than a 115 pound Nicki Minaj who is loud, offensive, with a demonic disposition.

    TO BE OR NOT TO BE

    Cynique But, on second thought, men do need to know they are not premium goods. Lol, starting OFF with assumptions huh??? I wonder is it true that most men really believe that they are "premium goods" that all women should be grateful to obtain; OR are you mistaking the promiscuous confidence and desire of sex that has been typical of most young males since time immemorial as some sort of grandiose delusion that YOU need to bring them down from? Marriage really is a sacrifice for women. Again, more assumptions and generalizations. You COULD HAVE said it's a sacrife for SOME women just like it's a sacrifice for SOME men and for others it's an exceedingly great pleasure....but that would sound too fair and realistic. But is it a really a "given" that all black women or woman of any color unequivocally need a committed mate of the opposite sex? No, ofcourse not. And I'm a little curious...... Who on here has made this (in reality "strawman") argument? I haven't said it, nor have I read where Troy or Del said it. Or is this a matter of you ACCUSING others of having a belief or position that they don't really have simply to have a reason to rally other women and attack men over a concept few have actually stated? if you have the courage to buck tradition and resist the pressures of society, do so and remain happily single, Who needs a man, an overgrown boy looking for you to bolster his ego, and reassure his self worth, enable his self pity and endure his roving eye? Again, more imaginary resistance. This is 2018. Outside of a few religious circles, who in the AfroAmerican community or in society in general is PRESSURING people to get married? What "force" has presented itself so strongly in favor of marriage that you feel women must stand up, pick up the sword, and march off to "resist" like Joan of Arc and her legion??? Or are these more strawman arguments unfounded in reality? Troy GIven that fact man more an more people are choosing this lifestyle; in 2014 more than half of adults 16 years or older were unmarried (a dramatic increase from a generation before Only half? I thought the number was higher than that, lol. You said it was a dramatic increase from a generation before but from my person perspective it appears that that past three generations have been pretty consistent in the percentage of people not getting married. Since about the mid-70's about half of Caucasian Americans and over 2/3 of AfroAmericans have chosen NOT to get married. Today it is FAR too easy to get married and FAR too difficult to end a marriage. Legal (government sanctioned) marriages should be eliminated More and more I'm starting to like the idea of "civil unions". Two or more people simply get together and write up a contract under THEIR OWN TERMS and get it notarized by the government making the contract binding....other than that the government stays out of our business.
  7. yes this is human nature and is what the study is trying to understand. The takeaway is that we can't be afraid to revise your our beliefs I don't think fear is the biggest obstacle that prevents people from changing their beliefs; the lack of VALID REASONS are. When I say "valid" I don't mean truthful or properly argued reasoning, although that can qualify as valid; but valid meaning "effective". Any new informaton being presented....whether true or false....must be effective enough or atleast presented effectively enough to get a person to reconsider their old beliefs and adopt new ones and USUALLY that effectiveness involves convincing the person how accepting this new information will benefit them OR confirm other beliefs they may hold more strongly. For example...... Going up to a fundamentalist Christian and trying to convince them that global warming is a fact using scientific journals and periodicals may not sway them, BUT you can convince them that the world is getting hotter because the Bible predicted it by saying the world will be consumed by fire. They won't believe it because of scientific research, but they will believe it if they feel it confirms their long held prophecies.

    AfroAmerican Men Need A CODE

    Caucasians can tolerate BOTH alcohol and milk much better than Africans, Asians, and Native Americans. I used to stay in a hostel with Caucasians who were from all over the world. Europe, the United States, Australia..... And one of the things they all had in common was their love for alcohol. Had to have wine with every meal, had to go out drinking every night, had to have special wines and liquores for every social occasion. Doctors, lawyers, accountants, hitch-hikers, yoga instructors, even health nuts....but they all loved that alcohol. Caucasians also seem to love the raw bitter taste of plain tobacco cigarettes like Marlboro while most AfroAmericans who smoke love NEWPORTS and other menthol flavored cigarettes.
  9. Aside from the student loans...... Another trick they're pulling on students today are these INTERNSHIPS. It used to be that only students going to school to be doctors and teachers did internships, now almost all students are required to so so many hours of FREE WORK for designated corporations in order to earn credits towards their degrees. And should we be suprised that each year more and more hours of free labor are being required for these internship programs? At the rate things are going, pretty soon it'll be standard entry level procedure to work at a job for 5 years as an "intern" before you get officially "hired" and even start receiving pay!

    AfroAmerican Men Need A CODE

    Troy Man @Pioneer1 this is an interesting point. Would it be more accurate to say start with those with nothing to lose? Is there a difference? Those with the "least to lose" or those with "nothing to lose", not too big of a difference. I believe that everyone has SOMETHING to lose even if it's their life or the life of a loved one. So "least to lose" would probably be a more accurate term. But the point is, just like it was easier to convince the field negro to run away and abandon his master because he was experiencing the worst conditions and the system wasn't helping him at all.....it would seem that those at the bottom of society ( petty criminals, drug addicts, homeless, poverty stricken, ect....) have the fewwest reasons to support this system and it's values and would be more open to something "new" to try. Too bad they don't let you eat bacon and drink a cold beer every once in a while.... I take a drink every now and then, usually socially....but I'm careful not to over induldge. I've noticed that alcohol....more so than weed....has a much more profoudly negative effect on the minds of people of color than it does on Caucasians . White people can drink until the fall out into a coma, but two days later they're normal again. Most AfroAmericans and Asians when they get drunk it really messes their minds up for a week or two and even changes their personality.
  11. Troy Well that's the thing, and quite frankly it's one of the things that turned me away from organized religion. Since I was a kid they were predicting the end of the world. Then I foud out that generations before me going back hundreds of years each generation thought THEY were the generation that would see the end. Meanwhile the rich people and those in power kept right on doing what they were doing and running the world. I soon recognized organized religion as a sort of pacifier or drug used to keep people calm and sedated and WAITING....WAITING....WAITING....on something to happen to improve their society instead of MAKING it happen themselves. Many people believe that because Trump is in the Whitehouse he will make things so bad that the world will end. The problem with that type of thinking is that they said the same thing about George W. Bush.....and the world DIDN'T END.

    I'm Changing...........

    Chev Not the main reason!? No. Because if we were smarter as a people White racism wouldn't affect us NEARLY as much as it does. If my Father owns his own law firm, should I really care that you won't offer me a part-time job as paralegal? If AfroAmericans had their own hospitals with their own doctors....which we SHOULD have by now if we were smart enough to do so.....the disparities in the healthcare system wouldn't be nearly as big of an issue as it is today. Do you really believe that they 'LIKE TO FIGHT' or what about looking at this from another point-of-view. You don't consider that they have been conditioned to feel that is what they are supposed to do? I think they've been conditioned AND toxins in the environment (lead, mercury, ect.....) are having negative influences on their behavior. But where I blame AfroAmericans is this has been a KNOWN fact for atleast 20 years yet how many of our people are actively trying to RE-CONDITIONING your youth and CLEAN UP the environment? So again, it's back to Black stupidity. Just like the drug problem. Even after it was publicized that crack was purposely put into the Black community, many Black youth STILL sold it, used it, and even rapped about it! Can you help a fool? You know you sound like Jesse Lee Peterson. ......GIRL, HUSH YOUR MOUTH!!!, lol. I said I'm changing into becoming more REALISTIC about the problems our people face. Jesse Lee DENIES reality and claims that racism doesn't even exist and never existed.   I become very frustrated too, but the problem begins with this government and their slave system of which lasted for hundreds of years. My question....a question I've been asking really since being a teenager....was HOW did African people get into such an inferior position TO BE ENSLAVED in the first place? It's not like Africans were all about love and peace, because they obviously fought wars with eachother.....but they couldn't keep Europeans from colonizing and enslaving them. We can talk about the 400 years of slavery and oppression but it's hard for you to make a slave out of and oppresss someone your intellectual equal......especially for that long of a time. Can a cat make a slave out of a dog.....or a dog make a slave out of a bird? They're all on a similar level and each would be unsuccessful trying to dominate the other. But a human can easily make a slave out of ALL of them because we dominate intellectually.

    AfroAmerican Men Need A CODE

    Troy The other benefit of the Nation is that you are not excluded if you are poor and uneducated. True; infact they go DIRECTLY AFTER those who are the poorest and least educated. Elijah Muhammad taught that most of the well educated AfroAmericans with the professional jobs...along with the preachers....were one of the biggest obstacles to the success to our people, lol. If you want to build a new society with new values, you start with people who are LEAST invested in the old society and have the least to lose by opting out of it. Chev You discussed how AfroAmerican women fight each other by choice. Here you say, it is 'a conditioning' and that this society forced this behavior upon many of us. It's both conditioning AND choice. Once a person is conditioned or trained into a particular way of life, they will continue to behave that way despite having options to choose from because it's all they know and feel the most comfortable with. Kind of like women who constantly choose abusive men even over good ones because they grew up in an abusive household and those type of men are the only kind they "know".   But to be honest, every now and then I have to wonder ARE AfroAmerican women just naturally more violent and aggressive than other women because even when their violent or aggressive behavior in comparison to some other girls are pointed out I don't see a huge effort to try to change or be ashamed of that behavior. It seems as if many take PRIDE in being angry and confrontational. It's just embarassasing and shameful in MY opinion. Why can't someone else's women get that "reputation"?   I did not know that. Now that, to me, is unnatural. I know that is a significant belief system in the past. I think the term 'Epicureanism' may stem from this belief; The idea of 'living it up' and indulging in the search for self-gratification here and now. But, I cannot, for the life of me, understand how Black AfroAmericans being in a suppressive government like this would believe that this would be the extent of our life 'as a group'. If this is all that life has to offer me, then, there has got to be more, either now or in the future. Many if not most people don't know that. It's not taught to the public much by most ministers of the Nation of Islam because of how intolerable the concept is to most of our people, but it's actually part of Nation of Islam doctrine. Believe it or not it DID have SOME value to it. Since slavery so many AfroAmericans were deep into the church and Christianity and many of them didn't believe in standing up for themselves; they believed either in letting Jesus solve all their problems or waiting until they died and getting their reward after death. When they started believing in the teachings of Elijah Muhammad and stopped believing in life after a physical death it FORCED them to own businesses and try to build as much wealth and power in this life as they could because they didn't expect anyting else afterwards.
  15. So you think this toxic red tide is just one of the Great Judgements? Well.....we'll see. Many people were saying that the waters in the gulf that turned red from that underground gas and oil well leak back in 2010 was a sign of Revelations about the waters turning to blood.....but it came and went and many of those who were in power then are STILL in power.

    To Be S & B Is it so wrong to be a black woman who is strong? Most of the time....YES, it is. And for two major reasons: 1. Ofcourse every woman is different, but generally speaking it's not in the nature of most women to be strong....physically OR mentally. And when I speak of mental strength I'm not talking about intelligence or smarts which is perfectly fine and welcomed in women, but personality wise. Few people....including other women...like combative, argumentative, and domineering women. 2. Because a society is built upon BALANCE, and nature divided all societies up primarily between two major sexes; if one sex is strong then the other sex must be weak to balance it. So if you want the women to be the strong sex, then there is no need for strong men too; so you should settle for weak men and not complain about it. If both are strong they'll only end up fighting eachother for dominance and destroy the community from the inside.

    I'm Changing...........

    No, it's not the Cardi B fight.......lol. Although that's just a minor SYMPTOM of a much greater problem. It was just a week of observing a Black city with deteriorating neighborhoods full of so many AfroAmericans sitting around being idle or engaging in foolishness with grins on their faces....and then I go into a University district that sits on the very edges of several of those neighborhoods and it's almost an oasis of peace and stability filled with young East Asian, Indian, and Middle Eastern kids with a totally different attitude about life and where they fit in in society. I used to believe that our condition was solely a consequence of centuries of racism, but even during the years I believed it on the surface...deep down while observing the behavior of our people I realized that the problems AfroAmericans had and have is MORE than just the racism they face. -Looking back at how much Black boys and girls liked fighting eachother in school and between schools -Looking at how so many grown AfroAmericans today despite having high rates of hypertension, diabetes, and other problems STILL induldge in junk food.....50 and 60 year olds sitting around eating hot cheetos and drinking grape soda pop. -Looking at how so many grown AfroAmericans who should know better will insult another AfroAmerican they don't even know just because they aren't moving fast enough in line or some other trivial matter......things most people learn NOT to do at 13 or 14. -The lazy and sloppy way so many of our people do jobs they don't like, as compared to so many others who will atleast pretend to do a good job until they leave and find something better. Much of the condition our people find themselves can't be attributed soley to racism. Something is wrong SPIRITUALY......or perhaps it's not spiritual but something else that isn't tangible enough to put my finger on.

    Yeah they fought eachother at some sort of Fashion Show the other week. I don't even follow them but heard about it, I'm suprised you didn't....lol. They started hitting eachother and throwing shoes at eachother and Cardi who JUST had a baby not too long ago ended up with a head injury. It may be a celebrity beef but it certainly wasn't staged. It's typical behavior of a lot of young AfroAmerican women who are coming from the innercities. They aren't being taught how to be "ladies" and carry themselves in a respectable manner, they are being taught to be aggressive, fight, and say what's ever on their mind which leads directly to conflicts like this. Cardi and Nicki didn't do anything unusual, they're just bringing that typical dysfunction that already exists in the hood onto the global stage and showing the world how disgraceful so many of our people have become. It's very embarrasing bro. I used to attend a lot of Nation of Islam lectures when I was younger. I even went to the Million Man March. I still believe in a lot of their philosophy but they don't believe in life after a physical death....and I do. I believe the Nation of Islam is one of the best organizations out there for AfroAmericans today the way it cleans up and reforms our people in a way few other groups have been able to, but to be honest with you I'm beyond organized religion at this point.
  19. If we were to be accurate, it really depends on the era. From the late 40s to the early 80s this society in general actually catered more toward the middle classes (working and professional). Ofcourse the rich had it easier simply by having an abunance of resources. But because of the New Deal, unions, and Civil Rights laws.....the working class and even professional classes were really making progress. College education, owning a home, even owning a car USED TO be things that only wealthy people could afford.....until the 50s when the nature of the economy started changing to lift more people out of poverty and build a more stable middle class. It's during the Reagan Era and the introduction of Reaganomics that the scale began tilting back toward the plutocrats and it has continued tilting deeper and deeper with each administration.

    Troy Forget about celebrity beefs. It is difficult to distinguish between actual beef and marketing hype to attract attention. True, but regardless as to the origin of these beefs or their intent...their actual CONSEQUENCES have been devastating! Children learn how to behave in society from WATCHING how adults act; not by listening to them. When they turn on the television, go to the movies, or get online and see video after video after video of AfroAmerican men handling their conflicts and differences by cussing at eachother, threatening eachother, and eventually getting violent with eachother.....how else CAN they be towards eachother but violent? A good example is the recent Nicki Minaj and Cardi B fight. Whether it was real or staged, so many young AfroAmerican girls look up to both of these women and they are treated as role models. (which I find suprising because I don't consider either one of them authentic AfroAmericans). What type of message does two grow women throwing shoes at eachother send to the young girls who look up to them? Which reminds me.......... *Another good code would be for us not to allow our women physically fight anymore. I'm not sure when it actually stopped because girls were fighting when I was a kid too but from what i've heard there used to be a time in the AfroAmerican community that if two women were fighting in public a man or the men in the area would immediately break it up and send them their seperate ways and he would be respected. Now....half of the men either ignore it or cheer it on hoping some clothes end up flying off. How many other groups allow or even encourage their women to disgracefully fight and scrap with eachother in public like wolves or grizzly bears? I don't know if other ethnic groups have a code for this or it's such a HUMAN thing to do that no code is necessary for it unless you're dealing with people who have reached such a savage condition that even the basic rules of humanity must be written out for them.

    Chev Whew! You know there are so many times I have witnessed scenes where in the case of a customer complaining about an employee that the management will support their own employee, but not when it comes to a Black woman. And the insensitive comment of the quote you put, shows how pampered Europeans can be and how supremacist they are in their viewpoint, when it comes to Black women. History is replete with White women not giving two damns about the mistreatment of women of color. We can go back to how Lisa Bonet was fired by Bill Cosby for participating in sex scenes in her own movie. Or to a case in New York that you may remember involving a housekeeping maid from The Carribean who was sexually assaulted in a New York hotel by a rich White man and not only did he get off but none of the women in the media and very few in society came to her defense. Or how about how Omarosa is currently being treated in the media today. When Trump called her a dog you would think "metoo" and "times up" would have gotten involved and expressed their outrage, but you could hear crickets from them. Troy What is it with Black women and blond hair Ah careful! You know how upset Cynique gets at just the thought of a Black man just DARES to criticize or question the mindset of Black women who chose to dye their hair blond, lol. Maybe your generation, "the greatest generation," was indeed better that ours I know you put it in quotes, but just to make the point I wouldn't say the Depression Era generation (those born 1920-1944) is the greatest generation, not by a long shot. Infact the NEXT generation after...the Baby Boomer Generation (those born 1945-1960)....is better in my opinion because they actually got out and demanded changes in society for the better. But I think that Reconstruction generation (between 1865-1900) was better than BOTH of them and very well may have been the best generation of AfroAmericans right up until now because of the swift and massive progress they were able to make independently.
  22. People have always believed what they wanted to believe; this is nothing new. For most people, EMOTION is just as involved in making decisions and guiding one's beliefs as INTELLECT and LOGIC. If I'm deeply inlove with my wife and facts like text messages, credit card statements, and even VIDEOS are brought to me to prove that my wife is cheating on me....depending on how deep my emotions are I may REJECT all of those facts and maintain my belief that she is faithful. This is human nature that only a few can rise above.

    AfroAmerican Men Need A CODE

    Troy What is an example of a code you think should be implemented? A good code for AfroAmerican men to follow would be to not criticize eachother in public. Do it in private and even then only after getting the FACTS straight about a particular incident. Look at all these "beefs" that you see in the AfroAmerican community, especially between men in the entertainment industry.....most of it comes from people getting angry and violent about what they HEARD someone said about them or wanted to do to them. But instead of going directly to the person in private (without an audience to instigate) to get to the bottom of things, the instead jump to conclusions and make plans to retaliate immediately....in part to save their reputation. This leads to an escalation in conflict and often times ultimately to violence. A code to demand all conflict between AfroAmerican males be handle ONLY AMONG OURSELVES and out of the media or public in general would be a good start. Chev Most of the relationships that I've seen that worked had a dominant person and submissive passive person. It could have even been a dominant female who was bossy and ran things with a passive male who just quietly sat back and give his input only every now and then; but as long as he kept his mouth shut and knew his place things were cool, lol. Reminds me of Aunt Esther and Uncle Woody from Sandford and Son. But over 75% of the time the dominant one is usually the man. I think most woman are naturally passive but what's making a lot of problems is that this society is FORCING women to be more dominant and aggressive than they naturally are and it's not only making men feel uncomfortable and frustrated but even a most women don't find this role comfortable. I'm of the belief that most AfroAmerican women aren't acting the way they REALLY want to act. I think most AfroAmerican women who are independant and strong minded are that way because they are both taught and FORCED to be that way....not being able to rely on AfroAmerican men to shelter, protect, and provide for them. I've seen the same AfroAmerican women who took pride in being independant and strong minded turn right around and take pride in being a stay at home wife and soccer mom as soon as she found a husband who was making enough money to take care of her so she didn't have to work, lol. This society is engineering unnatural conditions among our people.
