Yes, that's why I was talking about Progressivism . Progressivism is not Democrat, Republican or Independent, or Liberal or Conservative. It's about progress (the root word). I was saying that campuses should promote social progressivism because progressivism support social justice and anti-racism. Personally, I don't believe in the liberal/conservative and Democratic/Republican dichotomy. I believe they are both corporate juggernauts that do whatever benefits their own wallets the most,...

It's really difficult to determine what women are attracted to. True story: I was on the bus. This fine-looking Puerto-Rican girl came on; she had these large, seductive, blue eyes; voluptuous - full luscious tits, big round hips and an ass to match. ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. So,as she walks down the aisle, we make eye-contact. I smiled at her. And she? She rolled eyes-clearly annoyed, as if to say: "nigga PUH-LEEEEAAASE...don't even think about!!" Now, I admit, I'm never gonna make the cover of...

Actually some views that are considered "socially conservative", I disagree that they are limited to social "conservatism". I don't view centering on family and morals as "conservative" because many social "liberals" do the same. I also don't necessarily anti-racism to be "liberal".

OK, I see the how you distinguish the two, although there does seem to be a bit of gray area. For example, is being anti-homosexual a social or poltical issues? It seems social, IMO, but if the last wave of election count for anything, the right sure played it like a political issue. You say that political conservatives are diametrically opossed to the Black majority. The only issues I can think of now are AA and death penalty reform. What are the others?

Perhaps novice teachers may discuss this issue on a day-to-day basis; however, just like in any other profession, after gaining experience, knowing how to teach students becomes second nature.

Perhaps in part, but I think that it is more deeply rooted in the particular experiences of oppression in the African American community,e.g., they hypersexualization of the African in the white mind which fulled the physical and social emasculation of African men, contributed to the rape and abuse of African women. In the wake of this, African Americans have tended to come down hard what they deem as sexual perversions that might perpetuate what they believe to be destructive stereotypes of...

High social status has nothing to do love IMO. Someone that craves a person's status before considering getting involved is not concerned with love . You called it right - it's superficial . Which is as far away from love as you can get.
