thanks for this... I haven't been reading newspapers the past week so it's news to me. One thing though, Toowoomba is in Queensland and Balga is in Western Australia. If you look at a map of Australia you'll see we are a h-u-g-e continent and these places are very far apart. And very different. On a positive note, most people feel this way: "Ms Maasakker said the Sudanese had added another dimension to Toowoomba, and made the town more cosmopolitan." and also this way...

Kanye West claimed during Hurricane Katrina that "George Bush doesn't care about Black people." Kanye West was half-right. Bush doesn't care about Black people, but he doesn't care about non-rich White either, that's what alot of people seem to be missing. In fact, the whole Republican Party is geared towards rich-White business-owners, managers and the wealthy, elite capital class. They only pander to working-class Whites becuase they know working-class Whites make up a major voting bloc of...

I am not sure why I waste my time. I said NOTHING about getting reparations from Bush. Several weeks ago a frat brother of mine told me that Bush wasted billions in Iraq that he could have given to Black people as reparations. I asked him why is he so vocal about what "his enemy" has failed to do with his deficit spending to fund a war but he is so silent about what his friend has failed to do to pay the debt he owes to Blacks all the while having a SURPLUS. The end result for Black people...

You guys are all completely missing the point of qty's post (and all the others posts like hers that have come before). Do none of you see the disparity between the two standards she pointed out? It doesn't strike any of you as ODD that it is fine and even considered "rational" for a Black man to want the best looking woman available ("Who wouldn't choose a video girl over a 200 lb woman?" was the gist of the quote, I believe), but a Black woman is immediately scolded (as we see from the...

It's perfectly O.K. for women to want men who look like Denzel Wahington. But, if that's what you want, then that's what you get. No complaining about personality issues that were not taken into considration at the outset. The issue being driven into the dirt here is "What are you looking for?" Are you...

I don't think they can answer those questions without sounding like a golddigger. I think what the women here are missing from the man's posting is the women are unwilling to 'grow with a brother'. That's why you see so many Black men in the military ranks [...among the most underpaid citizens in our society] married to other races. Those brides are willing to go up the 'rough side of the mountain' with a brother. ...that says alot about their character.

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.

Much to my surprise, I like to give booty sex with my tongue. It started with this woman - I had a 'heat of the moment' type thing. She would joke with me sayin: "kiss my ass"; so, one day, I decided to do it. She had this tight round ass. I loved gently caressing her soft tush with my warm, moist lips; and her moaning suggests she enjoyed it, too. She liked it so much, it had gotten to a point where she would just stick her ass in my face; so, I'd kiss, caress, and slowly run the tip of my...

I'm going to agree with you here Kai, in a sense. Good sex does require skill, but that skill is 90% mental and only 10% physical. Something about women that many men never realize is that their most powerfull sexual organ is their brain. If a man skillfully stimulates a woman's brain, her body can and will do amazing things without much more help from him. Ok, I'm stepping out of this thread now, before I get myself into trouble...

While not the best we have to offer JWC (and others), do you feel the plan is workable in present form? I see the covenants as an organic process. Over time, they can become more sophisticated; presently their "simple & rehash" presentation allow for easy comprehension IMO. This increases the chances of the layman adopting part or all of the covenants. All that's missing is a good, consistent media push to keep this on the minds of African America.
