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!

Right...caught him and Hillary making snide comments about Sen Barack Obama's chances of becoming president.  Prejudice is prejudice.

@chocolateadmiral @mzsunshine Excellent points!  People like to talk about how poor the American education system is but they are coming here in droves to attend these American schools....you have to love the irony :))

@creneetweet  Yes I know the major 2 party thing sucks :))  There are good & bad points to all parties. One of main reasons I have a major problem(s) ever voting Republican is because of their stance on voting rights and gerrymandering tactics to skew elections.

" ETA: 

I also caught that "Black people are on the Democrat's plantation" hand-wringing at the end."

That commenter from that article sort of defeated the purpose of her point right?  Democrats or Republicans can't stop you from success if you really want it!! To me they are different sides of the same coin.  People that want your votes and will say/do anything to get it.....

Hilarious...I was stationed in Ramstein Germany from 2001 to 2003.  While there I got my nails done by this white lady.  She used to always talk about how she was scared for her husband to be temporary duty (TDY) to an Asian country because she heard an Asian woman would do anything sexually to get and keep a man.  She was married to a black man.  The irony was lost on her :)) because I have heard black women say the same thing about white women---and the cycle goes on and on!!

@Lisa_Lisa @N2ition Exactly, they are no better than the KKK and house "people" that used to rat out slave revolt leaders just to get a crumb from massa's table.  They have sold their souls....

@Lady A That's sick....black men can't see that they are the real reason for their demise--not the white "main", black woman or the devil!!

@Maria fleming Damaged beyond repair women act like that.  We have to be careful with generalizations.

@Swirlgirl28 I totally understand.  This has been a bone of contention even in my family.  They joked behind my back when I went natural.  Some black women are cool with it but others have made snide comments like, "I could never go natural".  My retort was, "who asked you to?"

@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.

@Sameriah @NicoleLittle@Justme65 You better preach.  I am pretty sure all prior military sista's on this board can vouch for that.  I saw this non-sense for 20+ years while active duty in the Air Force.  Those foolish hypocrites had the nerve to open their rotten mouth when a black woman dated non black men.  I don't have respect for punkish men of any color!!

@LovelyLulu I've always been checking for the light skinned cuties :))  My sisters, friends, and cousins thought/think that is weird.  Guess I got that from my mom.  My dad was tall, handsome, and bright.

@ncatina @TheNoobie You are spot on about J Anthony Brown.  IMO, the black men that act so pro black are the ones that chase and put white women on pedestals....

@nicoleabundance @Elegance@oekmama I think it depends on your upbringing.  My mother was born and bred in the southern United States at a time when black women saw being feminine as normal and an equalizer.  They had been treated like men for so long that they relished in their femininity.  She was a very feminine woman and her daughters followed suit.  However some of her sisters/cousins were not.  I have cousins to this day thinking I am "too feminine" aka weak because I refuse to act out of character.
