Well at least you are honest about your motivation. AfricanAmerica.org is a community. It is a place where people contribute and dialogue in a give and take that is designed to create real growth and learning. While I don't doubt the value of your site, I feel like you are approaching this community in a wholly usurious and exploitive manner. You are coming to try to take, without giving or contributing to what is here.
That's not how communities work. If I were MBM I would consider banning you.

Why should any of us do that? You come into our house and then tell us to go check someone out someplace else because we have questions? Why not advise him to come and present himself here? Why not have him tell us what he is doing in an honest and straightforward way?
You've got quite a bit of learning to do, not to mention taking a course in Political Science 101 to retain correct definitions of ideological points of view. You might want to consider populating that bookshelf, get cracking on a little Walters, a dose of Cruse, a cup of West, a few liters of Fanon, maybe some Frazier, DuBois, Washington, and Asante while you're at it.
And now you malign a member in solid standing here merely because she also questions your motives? If you merely "came correct" you wouldn't be faced with this opposition. You seriously risk giving your site a bad name among a group of black thinkers who might otherwise be interested and active in what you are doing. Does that make sense?
Either become a real member of our community while being honest about your motivations or buy some advertising or something.
