@Elegance  Yes, the models walking up to people and then being ignored was a bit much.

Also curious about the percentage of people using this app.  I know online dating is old hat now but is anyone over 25 using apps to find dates?

This sounds exactly like the okcupid study.  Is it the SAME study?  Is the same company that runs okcupid behind this one?  Because if so, I'm really annoyed that it's presented as new information and a universal truth.

@Alana 2  Not only with blacks but legal immigrants of all races.  The government has a vested interest in letting in those who are already educated and successful and would be valuable contributions to our society (not that I see anything wrong with that.)  Take India for example and the 'brain drain' that's causing some concern in their own nation.  I saw this story on CNN the other day and the comments section was rife with accusations that he benefited from affirmative action so same ole same ole.

@SirLoinDeBeef  By "us" I thought you meant Americans.  I was gonna say Yank or American pig!


I've honestly never heard a black person in real life use the term honky. It seems very cheesy and outdated.  I think I heard it on an episode of The Jeffersons once.


I have heard cracker and peckerwood not only from blacks but whites referring to other whites they deem backwards and country, so it seems not only racial but classist too..

@vivi_25 @Maxine  Ahem YOU DO NOT KNOW ME or what is wrong or right about me.  Of course he has mixed heritage.  No one is claiming he's 100% African.  My point was that he does not have a white mother or identify as a biracial, non-black person like some previously thought.

@thecrazyartist @vivi_25  Oh you're right!  He is not even mixed.  This is so typical of the Internet.  People become armchair activists and are quick to jump on others without even knowing the whole story.

What is wrong with the men on the train?!  For shame.  Tameka is an awesome woman.  I'm glad she and the other woman and her baby were safe.  I believe Tameka has good things coming her way.

@Swirlgirl28 @Lady A  Yes I was pleasantly surprised by that too!  Esp. after that horrible treatment of Sanaa Lathan's character in The Family That Preys.  Btw that hot actor is Blake Lively's brother.

I really, really, really, really, really HATE that website, wish I never found out about it and do not wish to give it any more exposure.  Of course I hope CPS intervened, but chances are slim.  As far as I can tell the entire purpose of the site is to broadcast black people and only black people committing foul/criminal behavior.  I'm serious when I say I suspect it's supported by white supremacist groups.  This is the site Tommy Sotomayor uses as "evidence" that black women and girls are worthless and evil.  Because you never know who the people are, their circumstances, or whether justice was served, you're just left feeling sad, angry, and powerless after watching.  A lot of the horror is even meant to be entertaining. I was in favor of posting the cussing-toddler video because it did teach us that law enforcement is watching, and there was sort of a resolution.  WSHH however is one of the worst things ever to happen to the Internet.

I honestly don't think Marc Lamont Hill is a DBR who hates black women or purposefully pushes negatives stereotypes about us.  He is, however, ignorant on this issue and--like a lot of pundits--looking to drum up something to talk about for the sake of increasing web traffic.  It just goes to show that even the most well-meaning, educated black men too often assume black women are in lock-step thinking with them on the issues.  You could tell he brought up slavery thinking after that all bets were off.  It's too bad W. Kauma Bell wasn't a part of this discussion because he was the more offensive one IMO.  Anyway, Christelyn you handled it perfectly.
