Re: calling all fASHIONista men!!

That's interesting because I was watching an old episode of Dave Chapelle the other night, and his musical guest was "Big Boi," one of the group members of the popular rap group, Outkast. He was wearing an outfit that was very similiar to the White dude's outfit that I described earlier in the discussion. But instead, the artist Big Boi wore a black velvet blazer with padded elbows, crisp white shirt, relaxed jeans, etc. Is Big Boi "gay?" I also spotted Will Smith wearing a velvet blazer...

There you go again, putting words in my mouth... You seem to forget that I live in D.C. and I have worked in the entertainment industry for 20+ yrs. I KNOW gay when I see/hear it... and the guy you described is gay or he definetely wants to be... The men that you described do not pick their own clothes, their "fashions" are usually picked by gay males... And I do not work "outside" of the entertainment industry... Sheeee's Back!!!

Re: Are You Afraid To Die?

sunnubian ·
No, I'm not afraid to die, but when I do I hope it will be quick and painless. Besides, only the body dies, the human being is eternal, infinite, so, no one never REALLY dies. Each person born is born for a reason, or have a task to complete during their lifetime, no one is born to live in the physical forever, but things like suicide and murder upsets the natural balance/cycle/circle of life and the reason each person is born.

Quoted from the article, these are things that Republicans are suing Democrats for: It's pretty pathetic that this is the best that black conservatives can do. The fact is that above and beyond any party affiliations, it is conservative ideology that was behind everything listed above. What does that say about conservatives that they are attacking Democrats because of their previous conservative positions?

Re: Pope: Embryo = "Full and complete human being"

Black Viking ·
What separates a embryo or a fetus from a person is defined by nature and not by human law or religious dogma. It's very simple really, it's the womb. It's not a person until it is a separate entity no longer directly dependant on the mother's bodily systems to support it. While in the womb, it is still a part of the mother's body, and incapable of independant life. It is similar to a hand or a finger. Is it alive? Yes. But if you cut it off it dies quickly, unable to sustain itself or be...

The relevancy is in response to the pope's position. As I said, his statement doesn't suprise me, but I don't really care about his moral position because I don't believe he can justifiably claim any sort of moral high road. For the reasons listed above.

Yes, those words are true. But if I wasn't certain of that, or if I completely disagreed with it, I certainly wouldn't allow your word to change my view. In fact, since your word would be highly suspect, I may take for granted that the truth is the exact opposite. Hypothetically speaking of course.

This is a side affect of the socio-economic, race issue that affects African-Americans. Not to mention the high amounts of processed or enhanced foods we eat. If just a few generations ago black people could live to be over 100 years old or well into their 80's and 90's without much medical care, there is an underlying issue. Because of medical problems I've been having recently, I think that its because of some of the foods we eat. For example, the high incidence of fibroids in black women.
