Maybe I'm wrong; but I don't see FUBU thinking as "working to deny or exclude."

If it means only doing that which is in my (our) interest, then I believe that one can easily find themselves being complicit in the oppression of others.

It is also the question of who is "us." Does the "us" include GLBT people of African ancestry? What about Afro-Latino's (Mexican, Salvadoran, Guatamalean, Nicaraguan, Panamanean, etc)? If not, why not? If so, what is the basis?
