Daymond John’s going to pass his millions to a white woman, sisters have something to say While most of us are happy for anyone who finds love, there are some who are concerned about the vast numbers of successful black men who choose to pass their wealth and fortunes onto white women. For example, Robert Smith, the billionaire financier, raised some eyebrows when he married a Playboy model that was 22 years younger than he was. Do you think that people are overreacting on this issue, or is...

Of course! There is no way that they were going to allow Black people to inherit that much money.

If as appears (his kinda choice), that shows how deep it goes, how far it stretches. All that historical knowledge and it does not reach into how life is lived. Healing to the point of changing our lives. That's real. That's big.

You might have to elaborate a little more on that statement; it may have just went above my head. Nonetheless, it is a good and gracious and wonderful thing he's did, which goes to show, as I've said before, that a Black person dating or being married to a member of another race should not, and often does not, preclude them from knowing, understanding, and fighting with his/her people in the 'Struggle' or from supporting those who are, or from contributing/i.e., 'giving back' to the benefit...

Get ready. I’m in danger of making sense. Being married to another race doesn’t mean you’re not all in and giving back to your own. Fully agree. You can also know some things but not live them.

Got it. And, yeah, "Stockholm Syndrome" is hard to shake without "professional" help. Not that I'm saying all Black people that marry out of their race are suffering from Stockholm Syndrome , [ or defacto thereof ] because I know that is not the case, however, I also know that it actually IS the case for many of them. But, hey, if you possess PROPAGANDA INDUCED beliefs that beckon you to fall in love with a PROPAGANDA INDUCED 'image' , to each his [or her] own.
