Re: Negroes who defend the status quo once they've "gotten theirs"

I'm curious, kevin41: what do you think of Afrimericans who were born in poverty yet mainatined their extreme conservative bias throughout the tough years? This isn't a question on whether or not you agree with their views. Despite what some people may believe not all superconservative Blacks did a 180 once they reached a certain level of prominence--some were ultra right-wing through it all and used that conservative ethos to get where they are. As for the health care issue, it never ceases...

Re: How to Date A Single Dad

The article makes several good points, however, I think it sugarcoats the "baby mama/daddy drama" that affects many of these types of relationships. When a couple have a child, there is an eternal connection. Even though they no longer wish to have a relationship with the other parent, they play vicious games and can cause great pain perhaps because they are still going through the pain of their separation/divorce. Some biological parents won't speak to the step-parent for any reason and are...

I like children, but, for the reasons above - and many others - I avoid ever dating any man with children under 21, and preferably with none at all. So far, I've been lucky. [insert relieved face icon here] I never say never, but it's as close to never as it's possible to get.

My Take on part two..in bold http://www.sptimes.com/2004/10/02/Floridian/More_responses_to__Do.shtml Andre King Great article on the status of black man/woman relationships. I don't think that that is the end of the black man's opinion on this, however. Even though there were a variety of opinions on the subject, most of them seemed little more than simple preferences. And that is what I think all of this boils down to. If I were to date a woman of another race, I would date her because I...

It's less successful as a means of terminating the pregnancy and to some degree, health-wise. Some women will need to have a surgical abortion because the pills did not work. Because she won't know until the last docotor's visit if the pregnancy has been terminated, she will already have experienced about two weeks of cramping and bleeding and then have to go through additional pain and recovery time from the surgical procedure.

Brother Honestbrother, even in the songs "White Rabbit" and "Cocaine Blues," both written and performed by White men, there is an obvious tone of shame and guilt in the lyrics, unlike in rap music where there is usually a boastful, laudatory tone.
