@markhaaseth @hglimsher  Exactly, Mark. Exactly. Let's not put it all on black folks. We know that's not all the pushback these couples get.

@PilaJ  Wow. You really went there? I slept 16 hours a day when I was having bouts of depression and BEFORE I got on medication. But thanks for stopping buy and proving my point, though.

@bellechose  I only pointed out Obamacare because I know mental health was part of the platform, and many AA are uninsured or underinsured. I agree; let's not let this post be about politics.

@Justme65 @London Calling @Christelyn  @Lurking  Whites started this when the slave masters were raping the slave women and creating lighter skinned offspring, whom they treated better because they looked more like them and because they were their children and held some affection for them.

@Vivaforever @SwirlQueen  That's an excellent point. To much degree, BW are responsible for the rampant hate speech, because many of us are silent, or worse, co-sign the abuse, and don't use their power and resources to starve out the parasite.

Let take an opportunity to point this out. People have complained that THIS site is all about hating black men. If you ever hear that lie, please direct them to You Tube.

@girl1015  Moreover, it does the writer no justice for me to comment on the man's behavior, he didn't write to me, she did. She wants to know what SHE can do, and so I gave her the advice that I did. What good would it do her if I tell her what the man, who hasn't contacted me, should be doing??

@tway67  Talk to her like you'd talk to any other girl. Black women aren't a separate species of women. We like to feel pretty, special, and want you to be sincerely interested in us. Tell her she has nice eyes, or hair, or smile. Ask her her name. Ask her about herself. Be truly interested and really that's the basics for everything else.
