In 2010, can someone explain this to me?Page 4 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
Sure.
When someone's playin' with less than a full deck...the race card's usually in there somewhere.

Seriously, canam, don't tell us you don't know exactly what's going on inside this woman's head.

She's laying the "you're a self-loathing Black man" nonsense on you as a form of projection because she's feeling lower than dirt, for whatever nonsense reason. Take your pick. And because it's way more convenient to project blame outwards as a pat explanation for why she doesn't have what she wants, whatever that happens to be, than to do something constructive about it.

(I was going to crack some Abraham Lincoln jokes here and about how you're badly in need of another 14th Amendment to free you from the tyranny of these possessive Sistas, but I'm sure that'll rate a short d*ck/no rhythm comeback, and the only thing funnier than this cracker dancing is the mockery it inspires, so I'll leave it alone.)

Anyhow, no one's allowed to let you forget that your factory-issued color scheme is the primary determinant of your value and importance as a human being, as well as dictating whom you're allowed to associate with and date, what you're allowed to eat, where you can live, your performance on job interviews, and whether they'll throw in power windows for free on that car you're buying or slyly suggest you lay out an extra grand for 'rims'.

I still think it's a riot that the people who seem to have the biggest issue with it tend to be the ones who have the least amount of patience to discuss their beliefs in detail. It's like they're the bluebird of happiness who swoops down, rains on your parade and then flies away before you even have a chance to look up. Damn pigeons...

The year doesnt have anything to do with anything.

Chris Rock did a funny skit on this. Rock's theory is that while many, many white women are attracted to black men, there are not as many black women that are attracted to white men. They don't want white girls taking all the good black men....according to Chris Rock.

Personally, when someone says something stupid to ME, I just think "Well what an idiot, too bad."

This conversation reminds me of a story I heard from a man I worked with, he's white (Italian :-) )

He was living in Chicago and dating a black woman from Africa. He's get the nasty looks on the street, he said, from black men and women - but then, they'd take another look at his GF and see, her cheekbones were shaped differently, she didn't walk and talk like Chicago.

It would click to them "she's not a sister!" and the malice would evaporate.

Isn't that even stranger? Saving the purity of the pool of African Americans in Chicago but leaving Africa out of it??

Fact is, we're animals and we evolved. We weren't designed by something intelligent, even for 2010.

So she was right?. I mean she never said how she felt about this one way or another, or did you leave some of this email out. She just made( If your own statement is to be believed) a very astute observation


Astute? "who LIKE white women" is hardly evidence of astuteness. Proper grammar may be some evidence of being astute, but glaring grammatical errors amounting to nothing more than judgment calls hardly presents evidence of a shrewd or cunning mind.

I do appreciate the devils advocate, really, but I don't see where you come to the conclusion, from the quote alone, that this woman is astute. I could see if you came to conclusion that she was bitter & angry, even bored, but maybe that is just me.

Perhaps that black woman would want your race to be pure African-American.
As an Asian, when it comes to people I am color blind,what I see is the goodness of a person who will share his life.

^^^^Pretty much.

A hot man is a hot man is a hot man. Wrappings come in many shapes and colors.

Racism pure and simple. Her motivation as to Why she said it is irrelevant. What she said paints the picture. The halls of her mind are probably filed with such artwork.
