Re: calling all fASHIONista men!!

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...

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.

Re: Are You Afraid To Die?

SistahSouljah ·
I'm not afraid to die. Not even a little. The most afraid to die are usually the ones who live such a twisted life that they just KNOW they're going to hell. Either that or they have that "fear of the unknown". Not saying that I think I'm going to heaven...only God knows about all of us. But either way it goes I'm not afraid of actual death. You can't enjoy life (and death is contained in life) if you stress on that. It's not always a negative thing. Death often brings renewal...as it did...

Based upon the onus you place on their backs, why do you call them "victims"? Please explain. A woman has been repeatedly abused by her husband over the years.

First of all - she has taken the first step and is at the damned police station. Second of all, that she has survived as long as she has is a testament to her personal...

From all the back and forth that we – black men and women – do, it would appear that can be said for both sides.

Not really.

MidLifeMan summed up my feelings on this pretty well. I've always been a big fan of moving as slowly as possible in relationships. I especially take my time when it comes to introductions.

No other woman that I have dated has been around long enough to earn the privilege of meeting my family. I'm very careful about the girls that I bring home.
