Bio not provided
Chris, in addition to all your wonderful and common sense advice, why don't you refer this young to the one story about the young woman's who family messed up her relationship. Twenty years or so later that lady regretted her decision and eventually lost a good, quality guy. http://www.whenfamilydoesyouwrong.com/my-parents-and-brother-ran-off-my-boyfriend/ The person who wrote the question of the week is still very young, but not too young to take tell her brother (and everyone el.se) off and live her life. She does NOT want to end up like the lady in that story.

Oh too cute. I remember the comment he wrote about Big Tim on white DBR post and I still crack up. Whit was not playing with his opinion or his love life. Congrats to the happy, cute couple! Another couple in BBWland ties the knot!

I don't see anything to be proud about possibly exposing a woman to HIV living on the DL. There is absolutely no honor in that. I am not saying that Mr. Collins did this, but the possibility is there when any man decides to live on the DL with an innocent unsuspecting woman. Eight years can be a lifetime in the literal sense. Don't blame society, heterosexuals, Santa Claus, the boogie man. People are indidivduals who make choices. Come out or don't come out, you don't have to do this to women. They are undeserving of this. They are usually, innocent and unsuspecting. Now when women choose to date, marry, sleep with openly gay and bisexual men, then they go in with their eyes open. There are those women who do this for whatever reason, but for a man living his lie, it is unfair to include women in your games.

I am with you Lady Humor.
That is madness!
1 week, 2 days ago on Why Not Give a Guy in Prison a Chance?
I am so sorry for your aunt. I hope that she would not do it again, but sadly so many would.
I totally believe this. The majority of people even paying a bond is by far women coming bond out the man who just beat her up, or a mother whose son has just beaten up a girlfriend or his wife. So I can imagine what prison visiting rooms look like. Women are more forgiving and loyal creatures.

Good one Lady, good one!
MzSunshine is cray cray. But I am too because I agree 100%.
I have friends who adopted several biracial, black and Korean children. They went out of their way to help their children learn about their heritage. I helped the mother learn how to do the little girl's hair and they grew up in a predominately white town but no issues with race at all. I am all for it. I can't believe the National Association of Black Social Workers would rather a child languish in foster care than be placed with a loving household. smh

I for one qualified my good statements about Ramsey with "I hope he is not a DBR." All heroes get scrutinized. It is not racist. I am so glad I placed that modifier on it. He did have me rolling though. I am glad that Ramsey helped end the nightmare for those women, but he gets no pass from me either. Ramsey does deserve his props but whatever money he gets may be taken by the state. No wonder he didn't want any spotlight. smh

You know, I should have included Belize as I knowBelizians who speak Spanish. But they are considered a British protectorate so they get the benefit of the Crown. lol But they should be considered as well. Garifunas represent!

Unbelievable, but yet so true. Thanks for sharing your experience.
It is amazing that people don't know they have blacks in their own country. But it happens everyday.
I know, but this girl will get hers. You'll read about her in the papers or see a story about her on your local news. Sad that you feel powerless.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Fresh Off Topic Thread, and Another Announcement! | Beyond Black & White
So sorry that your wife had to quit her job, but she should press charges. That is an assault. Kids today think they can do anything and get away with no consequences, but that same girl on the path that she is will get a bullet in the back of her head one day. I know what I am talking about. I have locked up more teenage girls that I care to count. Sometimes they are worse than almost any male gang members in their brutality. Product of environment, abuse, fatherless home, maybe. But they are still making choices to terrorize, harrass, harm and hurt. Let your wife know that she has an outpouring of support and congrats to your daughter.
Super congrats to you and the ladies!

There are old stupid laws here on the books like "Not selling a dog on Sunday". Are they followed? Nope. There are lots of stupid laws that nobody is enforcing. There are lots of Christian missionaries in many countries. They are not forcing anything on anyone. They are teaching those who want to be taught. No movement to dominate the world by force in Christianity. Free will.
1 month ago on Random Thoughts About the Boston Bomber--What's Your Take?
I don't think this post was against Islam by Chris. I did not get that at all. I have lots of Muslim friends and some (not all) of the women resent how they are treated in some of the more radical regions and feel powerless to change things. And all of the examples of radical Christians pointed out here are not only extreme, I say they are not even Christians. They have NO Biblical authority for the murdering anyone and practices they live. I don't know how many terrorist attacks Christ authorized for his disciples to go out and execute. Didn't happen. People can assign themselves a Christian label all they want and it doesn't mean a thing other than to serve as the example by which we are all judged when one goes and commits and atrocity. We speak out about that and when they are caught, they pay the price in the manner of the justice system. As a former magistrate, I know that the majority of criminals in this country do assign themselves to some so called Christian faith, but they are not committing crimes in the name of Christianity. They are just being bad or evil. The Klan did do this back in the day and some may try it today, but that is mostly a bygone era. I don't know the facts behind the Boston bombing motivations yet but when a Muslim extremist commits an act of terror, they let you know it is in the spirit of Islam. No comparison with Christianity today in 2013, as we know it. Bringing up the Crusades and ancient inquisitions and outdated laws don't hold water in this discussion; and neither is Old Testament law. I don't defend radical or extreme so called Christians and their far out views either but where those practices come in conflict with the law, our civil laws will win. Honor killings in Christianity is unheard of and I am horrified at the thought.
I will say one thing, none of us will get fatwahs targeting us for death for speaking our minds, or women. I do know that. People can interpret the Bible in many ways and how women are treated but we can still speak freely. Some of the same women here vigorously defending aspects of Islam would be killed without a second under Sharia law (and in a most brutal manner I may add). We have freedoms in this country to say what we want regardless of who doesn't like it and you can uhm, refute it like so many did here. No such freedoms in countries where Islam is not only the religion, but the law. Separation of church state doesn't exist. Freedom of religion? Afraid not. At least here people can practice whatever religion they want I am glad to be here is all I can say. Again, this post is not anti Islam. But here, we can speak out against a so-called Christian who commits an atrocity in the name of Christianity. And non radical Muslims IN THIS COUNTRY can speak out against acts of terror by Islamic extremist like this brave man who spoke up about his own nephews. Now he is someone I truly admire. I don't see groups of non radical Muslims denouncing acts of terror. Here and there you may see one person or a small group. But the way people can organize and march freely here, I have not seen one organized protest of Muslim groups against terrorism. Not one. Are they afraid of targets on their backs here too? Just sayin.
