I take offense to CF hyjacking that photo. He never said jack about the photo in the other forum. When I touched upon how it impacted me and another REAL brother shared how it affected him, CF did not say Jack slit. The other brother and myself resolved how we NEED to do more and I talked about what I had and am engaged in upon the contenent. Again, he did not say jack slit during that time. Now he comes on here talking about how powerful it has impacted him. Thats BS I do believe. He knew...

Let it go, my darling. If it's not understood by this point, after all the many times and ways it's been said , it's because people do not want to understand, do not want to change their preconceived notions, "aren't trying to hear it." People are apparently much more comfortable making villains out of us.

Last month, I met a gentleman from northern India, who after our first date, declared that like Neo in 'The Matrix', I was 'the one'. Initially I was flattered, but that soon gave way to annoyance. I wanted to go to the movies, go shopping, go to dinner etc., He insisted that as he had determined that I was 'the one', that any further pursuit of this 'friendship' was going towards marriage, I was to go to India to meet his mother/family. This after three weeks I questioned his sincerity and...

You are more tolerant than I. I could not sustain a discussion about 'blackness' with any person who is not 'black'. I would boil over. So, good for you to be able to do this. Truly.
