It is can be either- whatever direction they are given re strategic policy of the government of the day.

Think about it... the US does this with its allies so I listen to your people and I listen to yours and then we trade the information.

After all that, after reporting his Monologue @ The Barbershop... Why does he feel compelled to lead and beg for Black people to consider his "disagreement" in some certain way?

That's one thing I'll never understand. He wants to play [WHITE] Devil's Advocate then wants to beg people to not consider him a...

Re: Erykah Badu's stage show

The first time I heard Erykah Badu was in the wee hours of the morning on the overnight radio show they played her first single "On & On" and my boyfriend at the time woke me up to listen to it. After that I kept hearing the song but didn't know who sang it. Then I was home from college on some break (I think Thanksgiving or Winter Break) and she was on BET with Big Les (remember her?) and they were at her house. It didn't even seem like an interview it was just like watching a visit to...

CF's attitude towards Black Business dealing with White Business reminds me of Malcolm X's attitude towards White people in a scene of the movie "Malcolm X" with Denzel Washington. Malcolm X (still "Malcolm Little" at the time) was a teenager/young adult working on a train as a waiter having to serve White passengers. He walked around carrying food trays with a big smile on his face calling out what food he was carrying. A White navyman (this was shortly after WWII) asks for some food, and...

Re: How to Date A Single Dad

I think you're right about that. But slow and cautious would be the best strategy. It can be just as much of a shock for the kids to get attached to your date, and then for them to be suddenly gone. You can build a relationship slowly, but break-ups tend to happen pretty fast.

This is probably the part that most people skip when they trying to go backwards. They never really figured out for themselves why the break-up happened. I think most relationships have a "straw that broke the camels back". When we think about why the relationship ended, we only think about the last straw. We don't think about the pile that came before that. Then, if we can talk outselves into believing that the straw was a small thing (It was just/only...add anything), then we try again,...

You are showing either you naivete or bias CF. White males hire white males. Period. In fact, there would be no affirmative action in employment if white males could be trusted not to break the law and hire without regard to race and gender. Because they are unable to do so, there must be a law in place to "force" them to do what is right as opposed to what they want to do - which is (like Bush) hire their boys.

I think there was another discussion thread about this film way back on this board. I really like Hilary Swank as an actor so i will see anything that she is in. I think the boxing chick was Jamaican, but anyhoo... I agree. More black hats vs white hats, ho-humm. Seems even Clint couldn't quite make the break from Hollywood stereotypical scriptwriting in places. A great film with Hilary Swank is INSOMNIA, with Robin Williams as Mr Evil himself. Excellent acting, excellent story, set in Alaska.
