Folobatuyi, yes women should be held accountable for their actions as well........its just that i find that women are being held to a much higher standard than most men..........which to me is not fair. RadioRaheem......you seem to have a dislike for women in their 30's........and im going to assume youre in your 30's, and not married, etc. (if this is not true, then i apologize). But my question is........what makes you any different, than a woman in her 30's?

I just heard this man on our local news say that "some people pick and choose the SINS of others to make use of as a means of isolating them. We need to look at someone's sin and say THAT'S ALRIGHT BROTHER WE ACCEPT YOU." So let me get this straight. Though God hates sin, he does not rank one sin over another. Sharpton just said that homosexuality is sin based on his argument. He is only asking that we ACCEPT PEOPLE'S ACTIVE SIN. Can you now understand the CULTURAL problems that we have as a...

And I'm surprised that a black woman - one who complains about the sorriness of black men - would be holding that incident against him.
