Re: Should Black People...

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.

It seems like the answer should be obvious. But there it is, still a question. It is still a question because many of (us) still can be found trying to make 'them' comfortable. Clearly, we have no obligation to do this. And actually, there is no need. All the reasons...wait. I find myself getting exasperated at myself for trying to search for some rationale 'they' might use to explain why meeting their needs is the thing to do. Am I craazy????

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. She walks into the police station, finally, seeking protection and relief. CF looks at her and says, "What are you prepared to do to change to help your situation?" 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...

Well, just accept that Black women will not change and therefore Black men need to take responsibility for that and change to accomodate that. If Black men did not date these women who were Stuck On Stupid amd clueless, they would not be that way. They should not be expected to do those things of their own free will. Pre-1970, Black men did not seek out and put up with women who were clueless or unappreciative of their achievements. Sure Black women could chose to act responsibly and/or...

From all the back and forth that we – black men and women – do, it would appear that can be said for both sides. One rule I think all people should follow is "Don't ask of others what you are not willing or able to do yourself in return".

Very reasonable expression! Actually about the "saftey net" thing, one of my cousins is also an atheist, but he believes in reincarnation or subconsciousness (he believes that people either either reincarnate or that after death, people remain in a dream-like subconscious state). It's kind of unusual for an atheist to believe in afterlife, but oh well. *shrugs*

I am a weak atheist and an agnostic (no, they're no mutually exclusive), but I practice taoist philosophy. I don't believe there is an onjective meaning to life, but that doesn't mean life itself is meaningless. Rather, it opens the possibility of the individual creating their own purpose, if they so chose. With the knowledge that all we have is the here and now (although religious taoists may believe in reincarnation), the toaist focuses on experiencing the beauty and goodness of the world,...
