Re: calling all fASHIONista men!!

That's interesting because I was watching an old episode of Dave Chapelle the other night, and his musical guest was "Big Boi," one of the group members of the popular rap group, Outkast. He was wearing an outfit that was very similiar to the White dude's outfit that I described earlier in the discussion. But instead, the artist Big Boi wore a black velvet blazer with padded elbows, crisp white shirt, relaxed jeans, etc. Is Big Boi "gay?" I also spotted Will Smith wearing a velvet blazer...

I don't equate dressing up with being gay - I just don't care for the look you described (and typically if you see a brother ( especially in ATL! ) rocking that kind of 'fashion', he's gay - AG & I are just trying to help you out!) The look you're raving about is an Esquire, GQ type of fashion, i.e. European. Sorry, it's just not my style. Do you know how much those clown clothes cost? By the way, I'm not a fan of the mega-expensive urban wear either. I have better things to do with my...

There you go again, putting words in my mouth... You seem to forget that I live in D.C. and I have worked in the entertainment industry for 20+ yrs. I KNOW gay when I see/hear it... and the guy you described is gay or he definetely wants to be... The men that you described do not pick their own clothes, their "fashions" are usually picked by gay males... And I do not work "outside" of the entertainment industry... Sheeee's Back!!!

IMHO, there is nothing that we could or should do to ease anyone's discomfort as it relates to our ethnicity. That is an internal issue that the uncomfortable individual needs to deal with - if they even want to. The "discomfort" is based on lies, and everyone knows that you can't make the truth out of a lie.

how old is your friend? If she is over 30, then it sounds like she is taking the best deal on the table. I'm from the MD area, educated in DC[Georgetown U], returned to DC after grad school and have found that black women are the least approachable women of the all. Many DC black men agree with me on this. That's why there are so many mixed couples in the surrounding areas, i.e. Northern VA, PG County, Gaitherburg MD, Bethesda MD, and Silver Spring MD...have you ever been to Georgetown??

1. I don't think it is a sign of a mental illness, just a reality check. Older women that desire motherhood have to do whatever it takes to get to that goal...and time is running out. 2. I think that older women have to 'fall in line' when it comes with their desire to be a wife and mom.

Is this funny? Get it right. It is the SAMBOs who are advancing the "Stop Snitching" policy upon poor communities. The Black Quasi-Socialist Fundamentalist are the one's who DON'T WANT THE BLACK COMMUNITY TO CHANGE but who figure that when the Country/White Community changes the Black community will benefit in large measure because our #1 adversary has agreed to play nice.

Generally, I'm not afraid.
