    i think that this is a disgusting. it means that people are happy not to be black. this teaches us that people dont want to be african americans.

      …it actually teaches that people don’t understand the History of color casting!

    This backlash on black men due to the Obama presidency shouldn’t be dignified with such words! Black men were lynched wholesale during Jim Crow-era because white boys felt threatened by freed black people_it’s no different now. You can’t afford to stand idlely by; women are victims, right along with the men because they lose their fathers, brothers, uncles! Remember, there are black babies out there who must be protected. Taking this weak position endangers male and female children. Hiding your head in the sand doesn’t protect you either…

    I’m grateful to be a black man. I’ve learned to embrace the struggle and use it to my advantage. The subtle bigotry(can’t call it racism) in everyday life only solidifies my resolve and enhances my focus on my goals. No matter what this world may want to call me I am Never Ignorant Getting Goals Accomplished.

      …Bro, Bigotry is general, what you experience every day is surely overt / unconscious racism and Institutional Racism or American Cultural / Racial Indoctrination!

  • barry irving
