@LadyHumor @International_Responder Glad you pointed out these DBRs are the same wherever you go.  Too many people wrongly surmise west/east coast automatically means no problems.  I just got back from a graduation in Montgomery AL where on the white guys getting his associate was married to a large (about size 28 or 30) sized black woman.  The black men were looking like ;ooh, nasty" but I have seen the same thing when I lived in California.  In California the DBRs acted entitled & snooty at the same time :))

I see a young lady normalizing a natural act of nature.  I think in America and certain western countries women's bodies are only to be looked at as sexual objects. I remember when I saw my first open and very public breastfeeding mother in Italy circa 91.  We were at a restaurant and the Italian family was sitting adjacent to our table.  Her baby started to cry and she whipped out her nipple and baby started to feed.  My initial reaction was shock because I had never seen a public breastfeeding.  I was very uncomfortable at first but I realized that it was natural to her, her husband, their friends, and the rest of the restaurant.  No one was giving her a second glance.  She got the same reaction as if she pulled out a bottle.  When she pulled out her breast it was as if she coughed or laughed.  It was a normal everyday part of life as it had been for her women since they inhabited earth.  No shame, no guilt was attached.  The husband didn't care that other men saw his wife's breast.  It is all about societal conditioning.

A round of applause for what?  Showing blatant racism.....black people can be so crazy.  You can forgive but doesn't mean for you to act like this guy is some type of champion for African Americans because he isn't.  This was all a publicity stunt.  I bet he went home laughing saying "all you got to do is give a n____ some money and they will kill their own mama".  What a shame.

@LadyHumor Pitch perfect!  Why does society think sex equals adulthood? All the social outlets missed the "I am a virgin at 22 and woe is me" tone.  Grown folks can do better by telling tweens/teens/young adults that rushing into sex is not some badge of honor.

@dippedingodiva Worth its weight in gold.  If they spent just half the time trying to make something out of their life, the black community would come out of that 70+% OOW, the crime rate would plummet, and they wouldn't be such a joke on the world scene.

Tavis was wrong to put this squarely on the shoulders of this President.  President Obama is not GOD!!  Why have all the ills of this country been laid at this man's feet.  The very race baiters at FOX are the puppet's of billionaires seeking to keep the status quo.  No it's time for black people to be entrepreneurs again.  Just like those that built up the infamous black wall street.  Those people faced more discrimination then we can think about but they still made it.  Why? 


They were determined and desperate.  We have to be desperate to move out of present situation.  Also, black people respected each other a little more then than they do now.  We patronized each other's business.  Any small business owners want to talk about how hard it is to get a black person through your door.  They will beat a non-black person's establishment door down!!!  Lets be the change we seek.  Pres Obama can't do it alone.  We have some responsibility too!

@NicoleLittle @N2ition That's sad. Way too many black women are conditioned to put everybody above them like its a badge of honor.  They feel they don't deserve happiness and all life has to offer so they degrade any black woman that has the nerve to want something out of life.  Trust me your gram learned this behavior from her family and didn't have enough guts to chart a new path for future generations.  "Boys will be boys and they can take care of themselves" mindsets have ran rampant in the BC.
