JScott, I would be very interested in any citations that you have regarding Du Bois's reception by Germans et al. It is definitely that case that the young Du Bois notes that when went to German to study at the University of Berlin, that it was the first time that he believes that he truly felt like a human being. While there, he literally imbibed German social, political, and philosophical material; e.g., reading Hegel and taking courses with Max Weber. Indeed, I am of the opinion that with...

Sorry about your bad experience in France. Frantz Fanon spoke about this similarly in his book "The Wretched of the Earth". As long as you spoke the proper French and were proper French you were acceptable to French society. And France is the most liberal nation in Europe? huh?

Re: Burquas not welcome

France has always been a pretty racist society. From what I've read Germany is one of the least racist places in Europe actually, supposedly. There's a huge anti-Muslim sentiment in France, Spain, Britain, Holland and Denmark right now and in Britain a big anti-colored sentiment right now in general. Racist and Fascist parties in Spain and Britain are gaining in popularity. Especially the BNP in Britain. Italy and Greece are experiencing a rise in right wing parties as well.

Yes, he did address it... but what tripped me out was that people who I saw getting treated like crap did speak French... It was because of their 'foreign appearance' they were largely being discriminated against. We got treated like crap as soon as we got off the plane because of our traditional attire, long before they knew 'where' we were from. We were getting treated like crap because we appeared to be 'culturally' African... We actually got an entirely different treatment(more of a...

Top idea! Seems the book isn't available yet. Although the book was listed on publishing databases with a May 07 publication date, it's listed on amazon with a release date of September 30, 07. http://www.amazon.com/Black-White-Masks-Frantz-Fanon/dp...d=1180472223&sr=11-1 Plenty of time to save up I guess! Of course, there are earlier editions available, but I was pleased to see that it's being rereleased. Check his other books on the amazon page ~ The Wretched Earth; A Dying Colonialism.

Re: Open letter to straight black women (by nubian)

Black women (and men) do share the same history, race-related experiences, and feelings of oppression, but that does not mean that we must also share the same beliefs and values. All Black people do not share the same thoughts and perceptions about issues related to sexuality. And people need to start differentiating between a person's race and a person's value system. As a Black woman, I am staunchly opposed to your sexuality for the simple fact that two people of the same sex cannot...

I agree with you Rowe, but would also add that it isn't just a 'choice' made from unconscious thought processess. I think the imbalance in the natural environment and the oppression of the Dark African female by White supremacist society also contribute to a lot of our sisters being 'gay' IMO. All the hormones in our food and chemicals in our environment that effect our sexual development from the womb to the tomb, and are largely unavoidable.

The opening of the essay cracked me up. "I am not trying to sleep with you." Within the gender, there are many women who act like the so confused men that we love to make fun of. One minute complaining about how often it has to be explained that eye contact or a hello doesn't mean lust, and the next minute attributing every bit of eye contact and hellos from lesbians as invitations to a dry rub. The fear of "lesbian by association" is so true. It's pathetic and hilarious at all the same...
