Re: What Are Women Really Attracted To?

I disagree with some parts of the article. One fact....women are talkers (sometimes we talk too much), so you pretty much know whats coming. Men do not talk........so you have to watch their actions, to figure out whats next. Also the part about college men, magnifying their status.......that may have been true, 10yrs ago, but not now. (well not with women that are educated, and making more money). I think now women want men, that are goal oriented........i dont care what it is, just 'be...

This is definitely beginning. As individuals we can refuse to be consumers of these images. I simply don't watch TV (no cable). Another form of activism is using your dollars to purchase the work of people we like. For those who have never heard Zap Mama, these sistas are INCREDIBLE. Their basic sound is like Bobby Mcferrin goes back to the Motherland. Pure vocal ensemble. Especially recommend Adventures in Afropea Vol. I, Sabsylma, and Ancestry in Progress.

As a parent of two young school age boys I have seen this phenomenon first hand. Little white boys can swing from the ceiling and they are "cute". Let a little black boy do anything - exibiting energy and vibrance outside a very narrow prescribed box of behavior - and it's a problem. The elephant in the room is white racism against black children. Black kids never get the benefit of the doubt that white teachers would want for their own kids (hence they generously shovel it out for other...

Any man that would want to fuck a woman in the ass probably has gay tendencies. Yeah, yeah, tell me, not to be so narriw-minded.
