I am a Christian, I am heterosexual, I think gays should be allowed to marry, I think women have the right of choice and affirmative action is desparately needed because children are still being left behind. Law in the USA is not about morality it is about power and money. It was law that enslaved my ancestors using the Christian Bible, it was law that separated the races under Jim Crow using the Christian Bible , it was law that cause the police to sick dogs on citizens because they were...

nikcara, You have more than one point in your post. I will try to address them, but I hope you can forgive me if I miss one or two. Do we have differing definitions of "Christian"? What is a Christian to you? Yes, Christians do differ on issues, but they differ usually because they've started from different points of view. They have different conclusions about the world to begin with, thus they have certain differences in their worldviews, which is part of the point that I made originally.

The article makes several good points, however, I think it sugarcoats the "baby mama/daddy drama" that affects many of these types of relationships. When a couple have a child, there is an eternal connection. Even though they no longer wish to have a relationship with the other parent, they play vicious games and can cause great pain perhaps because they are still going through the pain of their separation/divorce. Some biological parents won't speak to the step-parent for any reason and are...

Dear Art-girl, My understanding of the difference in the pigmententation btw the various racial groups lies in the relative amounts of melanin in the melanocytes that lie in the skin. It has been said that everyone has the same number of melanocytes (melanin producing cells) but the ones in darker complexioned folks produce more of the dark pigment melanin...which in my opinion would confirm the commonality of man as one race and the varying amounts of melanin being reflective of the region...

Looks aside, I think the question being posed is: What does being a "professional" have to do with love or being a good mate? If a person loves you, treats you well, and helps sustain the household, does it matter if they are a "professional"? Isn't this just another artificial restriction that creates the impression of a man shortage?

She's not to young to understand relationships. Someone just needs to have a talk with her and understand that it's not easy for the child. I don't know if most people know that the relationship is leading to marriage after only a few months. But I would think that the two people should have at least established if the relationship is exclusive. Once they reach that point then the child can start to be introduced to the other person.

Nice try.

You express something and then claim to not feel one way or the other. As the quote above demonstrates, you clearly have formed opinions about gay people, the gay movement, gay BLACK people, etc.

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...

Prejudice is, as the name implies, the process of "pre-judging" something. It implies coming to a judgment on a subject before learning where the preponderance of evidence actually lies, or forming a judgment without direct experience.

Primarily, it refers to an assumption that the human species can meaningfully be divided into races, together with hostility to...
