I'm thinking that he was joking. I mean he's pretty savy at marketing himself (considering his success with little talent) so I wouldn't think he would be stupid enough to be seriously making a comment like that. But then again stranger (stupider) things have happened. Did you see on BET when Bobby Valentino was saying that Alicia Keys is sexy because she's light skinned with "good hair". He was for real. Now that mofo is just stupid.

"I think that the Reverend has gone overboard with his sermon, and I hope that the congregation made him very much aware of it . The KKK was and is a vile group of individuals that left a legacy of blood shed, hatred, and destruction, and here is a Pastor that states that he'd ride along with them in order to express the same prejudices that we as a people fought so hard to overcome.

I have been creating my own shampoos and conditioners. I use Olive oil to mosturize my hair. The site Nappturality has some good alternatives listed.

I used to work at a natural hair care salon, specializing in locking, braiding, and natural hair maintenance. I was an experienced hair braider for many years, and I've discovered that Jojoba and Vitamin E Oil are also excellent hair moisturizers. Shea butter is an excellent all over body moisturizer, however, I've attempted to use soaps that were made with all natural ingredients, such as shea butter, lemon grass, lavender, peppermint, and rosemary, and these ingredients can be irritating...

Whether you have your hair braided naturally or with synthetic or human hair, you only risk damaging your hair if the hair is not being braided properly . Even someone who braids your hair naturally can damage your hair (and scalp) just by braiding the hair too tightly or too close to the scalp, or by pulling on the scalp. So by avoiding synthetic braids, you are not avoiding hair damage. The important thing to do is to make certain that the person who is braiding your hair is a professional...

Though micro and smaller-sized braids may provide a more realistic look, I recommend a medium to large size braiding style, especially if you are planning to keep the braids in your hair for more than two months. I wear micro braids, but I also have my braids redone quite often. It's expensive, but because I prefer very small braids, I can't keep the braids in my hair for too long if I don't want to risk losing my hair. It's also important to get a braiding style that you can wash. Ideally,...

I believe that much of this behavior is universal and is the result of a "poverty mentality." By universasl, I mean translates across the racial divide. When your needs consistently exceed your resources, saving is not even a consideration. Saving can only come when your income exceeds your needs.

Re: What makes caucasians white?

Empty Purnata ·
Actually, "Caucasoid" is a broad geographico-ethnic category that includes many people (not just Whites). The original Caucasoids were Central Asians, Semites and Eastern Europeans near Central Asia. Typical "Caucasoid" features include tan-to-light brown skin, wavy-to-curly hair, big jutting noses, rounded eyes and the ability to grow thick beards. Western Europeans are just barely "Caucasoid" (they are only in that group due to their relation to Eastern Europeans and South Russians), and...

Re: What makes caucasians white?

On racial categories, one case-in-point on how broad "racial" categories are is Central Asians. Central Asians (peoples from Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Kahazakstan, Turkey, Iran, etc.)are Caucasoid, yet they don't resemble Western Europeans very much. Central Asians have rounded (actually, semi-Monogoloidic eyes), big noses, fullish lips, wavy and/or curly hair, and brown skin. About 100,000 years ago, some Central Asians traveled eastward into Asia (which...
