There you go again, putting words in my mouth... You seem to forget that I live in D.C. and I have worked in the entertainment industry for 20+ yrs. I KNOW gay when I see/hear it... and the guy you described is gay or he definetely wants to be... The men that you described do not pick their own clothes, their "fashions" are usually picked by gay males... And I do not work "outside" of the entertainment industry... Sheeee's Back!!!

Re: Exploring a Stereotype

That is a very good point. What exactly is "hyperaggressiveness"? For one person to be observed as more aggressive than another is one thing. For an entire group of people to be characterized as more aggressive there has to be a standard of aggressiveness. Do whites get to set the standard for everything that we do?!

Re: Are You a Racist?

Black Viking ·
I only have one problem with this. By my understanding, racism is simply a specific form of prejudice. At its core, its no different than classism or sexism. The question is "What is the bias?" not "Is there a bias?" For a person to say they are not racist, they are saying that they are not prejudice, that they do not pre-judge. But, as she said, we all do that. Prejudice is one of the ways we quantify our suroundings with the small amount of information given in a short amount of time. I...

Just like "Samuel Alito" probably originally had some more Italian-sounding name, and he probably became an arch-conservative to appeal to the Anglo-Saxxon crowd so they would forget about his "Italian-ness". Alot of non-Anglo-Saxxon Whites are more outwardly and openly racist (as well as status-quo protecting) to impress their Anglo peers and "get in good" with them.

Well, if that's anything close to his idea then surely he realizes that the schools are a reflection of the society.

DING, DING, DING - We have another winner. I've expressed this in other threads. Everybody can't get the instant dream life (add perfect man/woman & stir ). Yes, it happens, but it's not the norm. Did anybody really read that Ruby Dee quote: To me, it's about knowing that things will never be perfect. It's about finding someone you're willing to love & argue with. It's about allowing yourself & your partner to evolve. It's not about picking a ready made package off the shelf.

Melesi, If you'll allow, I'd like to give a small tangent that drives my point home. Reggae music (<--enough said)[I'll continue anyway) Bob Marleys 'No Woman, No Cry' In this piece (which I love dearly) Bob not only emphasizes the beauty of the struggle, but you also get the sense that the love between him and his woman is made much sweeter because of the struggle. They probably didn't have two penny's to rub together, but they had eachother. This song speaks volumes on life and love.

This is serious stuff folks. Why would a nation stop publishing the total amount of money in circulation? One reason is that it wants to hide the fact that it is simply printing money to cover its debts, as opposed to paying its debts with tangible assets. Note also that this was not even reported in the news. Moreover, why does it make sense to have foreign banks holding much of the American debt? The answer is that when the default of the debt happens, it will not be American banks in...

This is one of the many reasons that central. government controlled banking should have been snuffed out early on in the nation's history. Also, allowing the government to get off of the gold standard gave them god-like control over our finances. For instance, if they want to take your money to shoot an Arab, buy someone's viagra, or pay for a bureaucrat's Starbucks they can either tax you directly or just print more money - a method which taxes your savings indirectly.
