glad to see someone understands...deconstruct??? hmmm? interesting...perhaps....you are on to something...
we have throughout history deconstructed faulty beliefs.


if aye chide those who absorb massive books on race and race concepts aye also chide the "pseudo-intellectual-educators" who sell passe information...so, please forgive me...in an attempt to enlighten aye get jocular and pushy...it's the trini spirit...it gets under some posters skin... ;) just read the puerile last few words of the poster below you... ::) {probably someone struggling with their identity.} the sociological construct of "manifest destiny" was once real...but we evolved...sure...eventually "race" will be REALized to be a delusion and some of us can't understand why one would take a step backwards and not continue to move forward...

peace px. out o. rasta...rsta...


it is not that black has negative connotations...to me it is not what black connotes...it is that it is a COLOR.


seriously...when one wishes to discuss race...they must list MOST of the races on earth...aye think it is a good start...define race and list the races...very fair.


I completely agree.

That, however, does not mean that all white people are directly culpable in present injustices.  Generalized comments that suggest as much is what I find offensive.  See where I'm going with this?


Yes, we all know that all white people didnt' do it. But part of choosing to live in these United States of America is recognizing that you inherit its history.  I was born in Trinidad & Tobago, and my entire family is from Guyana, South America. I am Indian, Portuguese, Scottish, & Black, but you better believe that when I walk down the street I am just another African-American to almost anyone who sees me.  Look at my tar, don't I look 100% Black?

 
Hmmmm, you look and sound familiar...sending you a PM.

And this is what he sat down with the New Republic and said? Hardly articulate... ::)

I love my hair. I usually texturize with a relaxer, giving me the option to wear it curly or straight.  Recently I put a jet black rinse in for the first time and which damaged it so much. So I have decided to just go natural...

Good for you.  Let the messageboard at www.nappturality.com become your new best friend! Enjoy your journey!  :)

Thanks, I joined awhile back and really should get more into it.  I love LongHairCareForum too...

What type of rinse did you use?  Rinses should never damage your hair, in fact that should help protect it (kinda how varnish protects wood). 

I heard the same about rinses but it was the opposite for me. A stylist did it for me in NYC back in January. My hair is just very fragile...

I have been out since 7:30 this morning, and I just got in not to long ago. My excuse...do I need one?  I am happy to be home.

I believe the term is used to refer to a minority group whose success is equal to or greater than the majority. It has nothing to do with the majority's opinion of that group.

That's my understanding as well.  But obviously, people have different opinions...

I can agree with you on this because the argument I used to use for those asians that are immigrants are those who could afford to come over here or were blessed enough/motivated to come over here and those individuals HAD to make it. I believe that same idea can be used for the other minorities. Many come over here and begin working hard trying to earn an income for them and their families back home in their homeland.

So then that would almost make the problem entirely AMerican AND have it directly reflect class. America's lack of emphasis on the educational system and how even in their "No Child Left Behind" mantra, many are disregarded and neglected and how our math and science skills are behind other countries.

I dunno, education is one of passions and it greatly disturbs me when I think that many of peoples do just throw away their opportunity for success. At my University our Male retention rate for AA males was 29%, We graduated them at a %3% over a 6 year period. That aint good. In Columbus, Cincinnati, and Cleveland the high school graduation for the inner cities were 53%, 34% & 51%, respectively.

I just looked up some educational statistics, because it is not something that has been a significant focus for me. However, the numbers are certainly indicate a serious problem. Now that you have explained a bit more, I see how you are arriving at the conclusion that the problem is an American one and often a reflection of class.  To me, it seems like the issue is multifaceted. But what do you feel is the main cause? For minority groups and everyone on a whole?
