@EqualOppLover @The Working Home Keeper cool!!

as long as the WM is a good one.. because so many are NOT and could be as bad as some BM, and there are some BM who are good guys like this woman's husband

it all depends on what you and him are into

hobbies, etc....

@Geekette221B i bet having such a messy relationship with your dad, made you want to NOT MARRY A BLACK MAN==OMG calling you a HOOKER?==BTW, my daughter is a watermelon junkie, and has my dads lips...LOL

for me, it was my ex-bro in law, who was into afrocentric stuff in the late 60s and all the while, beating my sister..so if I didn't find a BM like my dad, who was NOT raised with some of the black 'dysfunction' because my grandmother wouldn't let him, i ended up marrying a man who was mixed with stuff, but not with black.


that is what it is with these africentric negros---of course everything is for the BM and if they want a BW, she has to be as close as white as possible

look at what Marcus Garvey was into--he didn't want black women to straighten their hair, but who he married was a lightskinned BW with straight hair.

@WendyLBarber THATS RIGHT... if they preach the tithe system,,, we need to have a BETTER SHOWING on where the money goes.

BTW, some churches do, and use their tithes in community outreach. If the pastor has a large home, he may rent rooms out to others, or have them stay until they are on their feet.

If a pastor preaches the tithe doctrine and has NOTHING... HE MAY BE what Jesus calls a 'HIRED MAN' a false shepherd who cares nothing for his sheep.

I am a person who is partial about men wearing long dreadlocks, etc.!!

they are for 'women' and look the best on them IMO

i remember last year, when the 49ers were playing Green Bay,  my hubby thought--"are their girls on that team?!"since they didn't have facial hair. (he was in a mood and not much into sports : i'm not either, but like the 49ers because of home team allegiance)

so, the guys probably in the islands should wear their hair shorter.


although before someone calls him a 'square', he does play rock type music, but don't like hair past a certain length...on males,, similar with me with guys wearing pink....LOL

@Browncow @JolieMelodie @KendraTaylor I KNOW HOMESCHOOLING is the way to go!! (they have conventions that could help you as well)

my cousins were homeschooled, and when they graduated High School at 18, they also got their A.A. from junior college, so all they need to do for a B.A. is to go two years to a university, and they are done.

its also cheaper, and when the economy loosens, they will have networked with others to find the best jobs.

Also, what i've heard, is that 4a-c hair tends to have more body when straightened than 3a-c hair and that could be why they wear it the way they do

Although IMO 3 type hair may be 'straighter' it falls short when it comes to 'body'

i remember my moms white friends  kinda wishing they had the body my hair did when you rolled in into a style...although i was young then, 

straight fine hair, to whites, isn't 'good hair' either or what i've heard.

@SwirlQueen I could actually see this ad, as 'normal' IMO. When you film the mom and baby, the dad tends not to be in the picture--with these baby sacks

But, i saw lately a HUMANA commercial (CA medical) which IMO was worse than this.

The commercial starts with a drawbridge coming down, and a little black girl walking home, by herself to see her mom and grandmom. Her hair didn't look 'groomed' (no barrettes, etc.)

there is no dad or male around when the BG comes home and sees her grandmom.

The same commercial shows a WM driving his son in the back seat, to see his WIFE and new baby girl

so, it shows: possibly OOW family...perhaps...

Black girl only with mom and grandmom is able to stay home, even though she is weak (at least the little girl has her grandmom)

WM going to hospital, and they are a REAL FAMILY.... complete with dad.

Evia  would call this an 'okey-doke'

@The Working Home Keeper @Vivaforever so, many BM will start to 'man up' and want to get married, when they see this. I've even heard a WM say, "if BW start to go out and marry WM, their status would change.

just look at what it did to the latinas, and asians who married WM

They were open to the WM more than the BW were, since many BW live/lived in the 1960s, at a time they were never born into (actually was the last time the black family was the strongest, as a rule)

i even know a few WM who were born in the early 90s, but like stuff from the late 60s which their grandfather was born.
