hi, this has just opened here. I'm not a huge fan of Heath (people know him here for his role in Ned Kelly) but I'm curious about this role. I like when actors are brave enough to do something a bit risque or different. I did like Donnie Darko... it became a huge cult film over here. That bunny was scarey! .

It is interesting that when AMERICA talked about "unifying behind the flag" after the 9/11 attacks SOME PEOPLE like Al Sharpton wisely saw the consequences of doing so.

The plane that I posted in this thread was a C-130 military aircraft... roughly about the same size as a 757. Also the building that it hit was an apartment building... not made with super reinforced concrete - amazingly it did not crash completely through the building... There were report that the plane that hit the pentagon was flying at approx 300+ mph... between 0 & 15 ft off the ground... and people were able to recall what airline it was? I have seen a vehicle moving at 100 mph...

you posted it so I have to comment....not every black man dates a white woman due to the above. My guy has dated black women, hispanic women and white women. When he was in college he found a few issues where sistas did not want to date him coz he was black not brown, and he was a studious type. Now, he has a degree and a career, is older, works out, and has lots of life experience and he can date whoever he wants. He does get approached by women from time to time. The first question they...

Hi Uppity, Did you post this on that survey? Things like this need to be said beecause I personally feel like we are on our way to having some type of race explosion because whites kep saying that black people are making all this stuff up. You can copy and paste responses because that's how I submitted mine. Nothing came back saying it didn't go through.

OH, then your dealing with the "I don't want you to leave because if you do than I'll have to face the fact that you are growing up. But I still need you to be my little girl," thing. Trust me this will past once your parents get through the first month maybe month and a half without you around the house. Then when you come home for break it'll be the "Hi, happy your back. Now what time does your flight leave again," thing.

I'm very aware of it. I've been avoiding eyes since I was nine. Just yesterday I only nodded at a guy in the store and he started hooting and undressing me with his eyes. Hi isn't supposed to be an invitation to be sexually harassed. Some men just read nice completely the wrong way. They see a flirt. And some can get very aggressive. So through the years I've gotten used to giving men my age what's been called the "look-at-me-and-I'll-knock-you-out-look." In order to feel safe. And it works...

I can't believe some of the things I'm reading. I'm one of the women who usually doesn't hi back and even I know that every man that greets isn't sexually interested. Many times a hi is just a hi. If that was universally understood, I wouldn't have to front to men on the street. I was taught to hi by my mama, too, but things change once you grow tits. My mom would never scold me for not saying hi back to a strange guy on the street today because she knows it's an invitation for harassment by...

Interestingly enough, though my Dad was raised in the projects of Southeast, DC, his family is from Memphis, TN. So he came to the city with very southern customs and mannerisms. Demonstrating grandiose acts of kindness like smiling and carrying on in public was and still is very important to him. Whenever he goes out in the street, he has to speak to everyone in sight. No one gets left out. If the person doesn't respond, he just goes on to the next person. He has to hold doors for all the...

What the fuck??? I've already said that not every hi is a come-on and I'm one of the ones who doesn't make it a habit to respond. Several of you here must not have experienced frequent harassment just because you've made eye-contact or responded to a hello. That's not a bad thing. It's rather fortunate. But imagine what it's like for those of us who haven't been so lucky. You claim Black women aren't finding decent men because we don't smile to strangers on the street? We should open...

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.

Saying hi on the street is a geographical thing in my experience. I was raised in upstate NY and NYC and just moved to Maryland/Suburban DC this past January. Before moving here, the only time someone said hi on the street was a man trying to get my number, so I was conditioned to say nothing and make zero eye contact. But when I moved here, I found that most everyone including females say hi when you pass in the street. I've been told I was rude for not doing so, and as a result I've begun...

Hi Kweli! Your daughter sounds very bright and observant, so I would try reading Genesis with her.
