Open Discussion #1
Last night, after a heated discussion about one of my posts, I realized that we Coloureds need to air out our frustrations about this crazy world we’re living in. A simple topic lead to hurt feelings which is counterproductive to our struggle. We are family. All of us. If we took a DNA test, I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that we are blood relations.
I personally do not like arguing with my people. I find it fruitless. So, I’m going to start an open discussion post every so often so we can talk about whatever is on our minds. Since we all live so spread out from each other…one poster isn’t even in North America, I can’t organize my people the way I’d like, so let’s do it this way. I find that talking, asking for help and seeking advise is the best way to heal from living in a supremacist society. I’ll keep this post up for a few days to let everyone have a turn.
So on this page, nothing is off limits, but there are rules:
1. No disrespect / hate of our people. NO name calling.
2. Everyone must help one another with plausible and reasonable solutions.
3. Speak honestly and openly about what’s troubling us.
4. We must promote education and spiritual healing through books, movies, documentaries( Mickey, you are awesome!!! ) and research.
Soooo……I’ll go first:
I went to main street the other day and saw this little girl, probably around 14 or 15, with low-slung pants and a thong showing above her waistband! I stopped to stare at her. I thought to myself, at that age, if I had worn that, my mama would’ve whooped my black ass.
What’s going on with our kids, people?
