Re: They Say You're "Acting White"? You Probably Deserve It

MBM, to address your concerns, I do not think that benefiting and utilizing the technology of the day is Black or white, I think it is human. History has brought all of us to live in this point of time and the fact that we use the tools available is truly human, especially since we are the greatest tool using mammals to walk this Earth. With that said, I whole hearttedly agree with Yemaya's comment about the Jedi Mind Trick. Many of our children who live in the ghetto, and sadly some adults...

And ladies, if you want a bad boy or a good one, say you want one. Don't date a bad boy and try to make him "good." You're just customizing or "pimping" out your thug as if he was a car. The only person you can change is yourself. I've seen guys who weren't thuggish, and some women rather have them as just a friend than as a boyfriend, because he's already good to her. I guess making a bad boy go good, gives that woman a sense of pride that she "created" the new him, like from a beat-up...

soul-doctor, You really do need to improve your understanding of the language you use. "Evangelist" is not just one who prosyletizes to Christianity, but rather one who preaches a truth to get people to change their minds about it.

This word is pronounced "hyu-an-GEL-ee-on") which means, "good news" or "glad tidings." Anyone who pronounces good...
