Virtue, You are so right, we don't discuss the hurtful things we have done to ourselves. We are quick to point out what the white man has done to us but we very seldom discuss what we do to ourselves. I am ashamed to say that I have heard of the paper bag test.

When it comes to romantic intentions... that's exactly what I'm saying. In the realm of romance, women have more games to play than Parker Brothers. No, it's not. When has a woman ever used the words "I'm not interested"? It doesn't happen. That phrase is not in their vocabulary. The only way to determine a woman's interest is by her actions, not by anything she says or doesn't say. Well, we are discussing men's experience, are we not? Where do you think the term "leading on" came from. I...

Frenchy girl, don't you know marriage is for White people! Seriously though, this question is no laughing matter. Some time last year, I started a similar discussion asking readers "Why Are There More Baby-Daddies Than Husbands." The truth is, people are having sex unprotected. They may not want to get married, but they want to have sex. What I fail to understand, however, is never mind getting pregnant, how can people considering the high risk and probability of contracting...

Jackson seeks to build strong Black-Latino coalition in U.S. by Leslie Jones McCloud Chicago Defender CHICAGO (NNPA) - One month after Mexican President Vicente Fox angered some African-American activists with his comments about Black workers, the Rev.

Emphasizing the need for a strong Black-Latino alliance in the U.S., Jackson was joined by Carlos de Icaza,...

Have you gone elitist on me now? True. Capitalism doesn't sound that bad in Adam Smith's original envisionment of it.

However, he also distrusted the people, he believed that capitalism could be properly used by "enlightened statesmen" and "philosopher...

And if you're not going to take rational steps to protect yourself you should stop complaining... It's like the person who refuses to lock their door - leaving it wide open - who wants to turn around and complain about crime. It doesn't absolve the criminals to point out that this guy is behaving irresponsibly and has less moral authority to complain because of his own irresponsible behavior. You're not letting the criminals off the hook by saying to the man, "Look, man.... lock your doors.

It is completely unreasonable, IMO, to assume that any planning was going on at all. If anyone was doing any planning, then no one would be in this mess. Sexual responsibilty is everyone's responsibilty. All this finger pointing acomplishes nothing. It's your choice because it's your body. So, make wise choices and protect your body.
