Please add 'Independent' to your list.

I voted but it didn't (seem to) register.

I am a registered Independent.

I am a supporter of the African Amerivan National Committee.

I will register as a member of the resulting political party as soon as, and immediately upon, it's certification.

PEACE

Spoken like a true Black man! Big Grin

My vote didn't register until my third try. But since it will only let each person vote once anyway, you can keep trying until it goes through! Smile
I never particularly liked political labels, because I can never figure out just what they mean.

But if I had to pick something, I guess that I would say that I'm some sort of a radical pacifist socialist, whatever that means.

Confused
I'm a Proud Liberal here! Proud and free. tfro

Politically, I'm a Democratic Socialist, and economically I'm a Market Socialist. The closest thing I would be to in a political party would probably be a New Deal Democrat (which doesn't really exist anymore).

I would probably belong to some political party that only exists in Europe or Africa, or Latin America. So, I'm registered as an "Independent". I believe that America should adopt the multi-party system, the two-party system sucks and is severely limited. It's like having to choose between crap or flehgm. td6
Well, just as I figured ... most of us don't define ourselves as either Democrat nor Liberal. But what really amazes me is how many Republicans sling those titles at us ... as if just because we're Black we have to be a Democrat??

What is that about?? Confused On one hand, they advocate us to be free thinkers, and on the other, we're pigeonholed into having an certain ideology just because it is not the same as theirs. But then they say they definitely value us, more than those old nasty Dems ever could!!

Confused Confused
i wouldn't give a schit whtat the repugnants and their loyal minstrel men lckeys call me......or even whnt the hell I call myself.....as long as my thinking is progressive and pro-black...i really do not give shit about a label.......but hell...i didn't do peer pressure as a kid either.....
What is that about??---EbonyRose

I truly believe this is about 'talking to each other.'

The Republicans 'pump up' their constituency with the words they want to hear. Hearing the words said by others makes them believe it is true.

I call it 'Preemptive Logic'.

The make the target what they want it to be so that anything the target says can be answer with an, 'I told you so!!!'

Both Limbaugh and Hannity do it everyday.

Republicans are more 'wishful'.

They also wave the 'brass ring'.

This attracts a few who then allow themselves to be used as 'examples' of the 'New Thinking'.

That 'brass ring' is not extended to the masses.

It's a strategic diversion. Republicans [will really, right-wing conservatives] have no hope of courting the Black vote, for the most part. But if they can drive a wedge between Black folk and Democrats and Liberal Ideals, it works to advance their cause, little by little.

Some folk, Black/Democrats/Liberals, will do anything, even vote against their own interests, to avoid being labelled or connected with a group.

It's juvenile psychology. Most of us learned it on the playgrounds or backseats of our youth. But in our insecurity, we forget.

"You're too scared to climb that pole." "Oh, you're not? Prove it."

"You don't love me." "Oh, you say you do. Prove it."

"You Black folk are nothing but damned liberals/Democrats." "Oh, no? Prove it." "Yes, Massa."

true dat bro......and when one gives a f-k what the percpetion of them is outside of their parents or family, then they reek of inherent inferiority......just like those who speak of "acceptance" or "tolerance" which means to put up with.....sad sacks indeed.........

I know some of you don't like this kind of thing, but please, please, please vote! Thank you Smile

I would define myself as:


These kinds of topics, only set up folks for attacks by other poster who don't like "IT'S"
independent thinkers outside the Liberal Mantra.

But since this is the net, and have yet to get
really hot in topics, I'll play.

Shadow>>>BodyBrown, Bougie,and CONSERVATIVE.
I make no excuses for what I'm.

"If you go inside where all people are and where the essence of their being is, you are not going to find anything to hang your prejudices on">>
>>Beah Richards
Some blacks, especially blowhards like Kevin41 and Noah the African, abhor being pigeon-holed by accepted political labels. They insist, because they're black and "unique" from other races, whitey's descriptions don't apply. Laughably, while they think they can reinvent the wheel, most or all of their political views are easily covered by existing labels, most notably liberal and leftist.

Even so, in recognizing their quaint little black game of oneupsmanship of whitey, I've found a new set of labels that might interest readers. In Africa, no less!

As an example, I'm a OINGO BUNGA-BUNGA. It's a Niger-Congo term which means a conservative. Not just any conservative, mind you. But one specifically who doesn't eat bush meat (monkey parts) or kill a black man in order to steal his garden tools.

That's me! Big Grin

Do you mean you found them in Africa (long way to go just for labels) or they would interest people in Africa? Gotta be clear here, Eggy.

Also, since when did whitey need an excuse to kill a Black man? So forget the garden tools. They're irrelevant and have been for a number of years.

Besides, you have lots of garden tools from working in a warehouse, don't you, Eggy?

EbonyRose:
YOu should have been the first to state your mind set. This is your topic.

So other than the attack you posted already, as I first stated in my response, What is the bases of your mind set?
I've given my own.

Or is this the usual, Let's see who carry's the 'Black like Me Club Card' topic?
Shadow ...

As I stated at the very beginning and as you quoted me before you gave your response, this poll was not necessarily designed for comment of anyone's political ideology. You chose to do so. That was your perogative. But I inititated it as a choice-based gauge of the board member's political preference, not as a "topic" requiring political commentary. Hence, being the first to "state my mind" was not necessary. Roll Eyes

Be that as it may, as your third sentence makes no sense to me, I have to skip that one. But, as other's will attest to, I have no problem giving my opinion ... although you could have asked for it in a less antagonistic way. Or, perhaps for you, not.

I have already stated in at least two other posts that I am a registered Independent. I think the Republican and Conservative ideologies suck as they do not reflect values in the best interests of African Americans. I think the Democrats talk a good game around election times, but do not put our money where their mouths are, and therefore fail us politically as a whole. However, the little that they speak about or actually do provide more benefit to the Black community than do the Republicans. So, they are the lessor of the two evils. And, I don't even know what a Liberal is or is supposed to be.

I vote for the particular candidate of a particular election who's idea(s), I believe, will be most beneficial to me and my community at the time. It doesn't matter what s/he calls themselves, as I'm a firm believer that action speaks louder than words. And that most politicians are liars anyway. I do my homework and usually end up voting for the candidate that I believe will hurt me/us less.

My "attack" was more of a question than a condemnation. Since this poll was taken it's happening less, but many of the Republican/Conservatives upon their arrival to this board have called the majority of us Democratic or Liberal thinkers in their posts ... not bothering to ask us of what our political mentality may be, but rather to tell us what it is, on their way to dictating what is wrong with it, us and the virtues of their own way of thinking.

This poll has shown that the Republicans members are defining a majority of us in ways that we don't even define ourselves. In fact, as yet, not one member has self-identified as a Democrat at all. Eek And so, the question is, why would those Republicans be so presumtuous in their approach to do that? Now, since you seem so enthusiastic towards answering questions, perhaps you could answer that one and give us enlightenment? Confused
I'm not voting for any mother's child where I may possibly hear the words "Our condolences go to the family of_____________for their sacrifice." To my knowledge, dead soldiers don't win wars, they're just dead.

EbonyRose:
First' let me thank you for the well though out reply. My posting to you was my way of a test.
I want to see if you were of the STRONG SISITA
CLub or the usual, 'WAnt-to-be Revolutionary'
There is no doubt you belong to the STrong Sistas CLub.

NO'Mumbo-jumbo'Just a rational response.Being a newbie I'm going love the debates, and the letting down of the hair on topic non-political.

TO Anserwer your question?
Republican's are only tapping in to what makes so many Khemitian folk what they are. WE beleive
in fair play, we beleive in morals.
There is no need to boar you with a history lesson. WE both know Khemitian folks were totally REpublican, before we let the thoughts of having shiny gold coins from the goverment, make us children. It has been a long time since
we were home. It is time for us to go home.

How can this possibly be the answer to the question that I asked you?? Confused Confused
Back to the topic (I voted early, wished I could have done it often, AMerican Idol style)...

BLACK NATIONALISTS...

And contrary to Shadow's comments (i.e. DUMB WHITE SHIT)... and in-line with Kevin's sentiments, I don't care what anybody has to say about what they think I believe. As George Bush has said: BRING IT ON!!

Being afraid to state your [true] beliefs (CON-Feed "What's a Black Conservative?") only shows COWARDICE and a juvenile constitution, as noted.

But, I guess Dan Rather is a bit of a folk-hero around here... LOL lol

I did answer the question?

REpublican's see most of us, as being just like them. WE want those crimmals locked up with a fair trial.
WE want to be able to raise our chidlren as we see fit. Keep what we make to ourselves, Worship any GOd we like, et et et. REpublicans we were, Republicans we are!
How long will it take for some of us to see, that some of us sold out for a few gold coins, to be on the white Liberal plantation?

I understand your love for white folks? YOu can't stop talking about them.
Every dang post is the same old tired thing.
White this, or whtie that? I'm starting to beleive you nothing more that a mattoid?
I've been here les than a week and already you'll whinning. Oh! please SHadow, don't post here, I love's me some white folks talk.
Post on another site, please!

I've read the sign on the door comeing in.
'WE welcome different opinions on topic posted."
SO' unless the owner is a liar, and the moderators are censors.
I'll be in your face debunking your "Hormone Added Malcontent Leftwing Radicalism'.
So get out your Sold out, house negro, slave minded, oreo cookie, uncle tom calling sixty bullshit. And bring it on.
This 'Brown, Bougie, Conservative' is waiting.

quote:

There's plenty for you to address then. So be my guess.

Note: It doesn't take much brain power to stereotype.

And ummm... you haven't debunked anything any so-called Black Liberal or Radical here has said because you've never engaged or addressed anything I've said, for one. So, no, your Laundry List doesn't work or qualify. That BULLSHIT resonates with some dumb White people, perhaps or some other dumbasses like you who borrow dumb Right vs. Left scripts and think they apply in a Black forum like this one as they would in some dumb White Neocon message board.

So, yes, be my guess and everyone else's and get your feeble ass to "debunking" something people here have actually said. Those scripts won't help you nor will they hide your state of Intellectual Midgetry.

But, if you think that BULLSHIT applies... don't get sidetracked, don't get distracted go to the "Just What The Heck Is A Liberal?" thread and direct your responses to what I had to say about one of those ignorant claims and, more importantly, respond to this or STFU!!

All of that was a stereotype and you and I both know it. I'd oblige you to try to prove even half of that Neocon diatribe you just spouted.

For the Learning/Hearing Impaired (and easily distracted... quickly trying to hide):
PROVE EVEN HALF OF THAT BULLSHIT TRUE and relevant to this forum.

It's either that or STFU!!

You don't have leave. You don't have to go home (to your White BULLSHIT sites). You just got to get out of here with that DUMBSHIT. Come correct or don't come at all.

PS: I just made that sign - heading caption: NO BULLSHIT ALLOWED! That means YOU! nono LOL
