Are suggesting for schools to abolish the practice of collecting data on race and other demographic information? If you are I'd have to disagree. Ward Connerly tried to pull some *&^% like that in Cali and voters struck it down because everyone realized that it would do more harm than good.

no man i'm not saying abolish the "little boxes" i think there funny as *&^%...

they been keepin me laughin for years. 

demographics are great, i guess, its "the system's way to get a PROFILE of people."  hmmm?
for business...for good too...but this is past 1984 after all...i am using a comp. to communicate, so its a slow crawl toward change...twenty years ago we used to "dial" to communicate.

now race...thats another thing...

this was on one of the many applications i have collected over the years...and others have given me...as time moves "slowly crawlin" toward change i re-read them from the past and the farther i go back the more absurd it becomes.

RACE (check one box) (optional)                   my take:  is checking one box optional
                                                            is checking race optional
Asian (Chinese)
Black
Canadian
Caucasian
Indian
Native American
Russian
Other

now, that made me laugh hard...is it absurd?  you tell me?

NOW i'm gonna play a little....

(If aye jus happen to be from trinidad why do i have to check "other"...aye want to check all them motherfukin boxes....twice, man. the only one aye might not check is russian...because am not from there...never been there...and its motherfuckin cold as *&^%...

so i say @#!* the mutherfuckin boxes...where is the trinidad "race-chose-one-optional-box" man...??? :'(

i want my box...i want my box!!

*&^% man this is making me cry... :'( :'( :'( i need a hanky and some milk i'll finish in a little bit.







Hmmmm. I have never seen "Russian" as a race option on an application, as Russian is normally considered a national orgini, not a race. ??? I was always compelled to check "caucasian." What app was this on?


that's my point ruskie lass...it's absurd...and "book worthy" i collect this absurd *&^%.  is russian a race that's ma point...it don make sense.

if you are russian then are you from an area near the caucasus...or russia/russia...or the ukraine or georgia?  i have some friends in queens who are from the ukraine and they've tried to teach me a little of the russian language...very rich stuff...

i guess everyone was worn out today so i'll just post and maybe there is a soul out there listening to some music and coolin out???

my point is that i think it's cool to think outside the box...
shake up the system and shaka up the language...FIND DA f-in ROOTS...o the word..

poetic license, man...DOES ANYBODY AGREE???

ONE RACE...HUMAN...MANY CULTURES...
 
just as we look back upon the absurdity
of thinking the planet earth was flat

just as i re-read SOME *&^% written from the past

maybe 2 or 3 or 4 hundred years from now (if?) the human race still exists...they will look back and find our conceptions of race to be a "cognitive delusion of our era"


MR. RAG
LADYDAY
MS. JAY
HBCU
CALI, MAN

so, ANY TAKES ON DA BOXES????

okay i'm back...

not only where is the trinidad box
where is the @#!* is the TOBAGO box, for that matter???? :'(

okay, i'll stop crying.

on this application i could break it down many ways

Asian (Chinese)  asian means i come from a huge geographical region some may even say a continent...including part of the caucasus, india, and for that matter russia.  (chinese)in parenthetical expression means...hint..hint...if your asian...you might be chinese.  so that's...??multiracial???   

Black   black means, ah, well, i'm a color????

Canadian   canadian means i'm from a geographical region or a country between the usa        and the arctic circle

Caucasian  caucasian means i'm from a geographical mountain region between the black and caspian seas...also part of russia and asia

Indian  indian means i'm from a geographical region which is also part of asia between  the bay of bengal and the arabian sea

Native American  native american means i'm an aboriginal person from the geographical regions encompassing both hemispheres and two continents

Russian  russian means i'm from the geographical region between the arctic ocean and mongolia...and i'm a language????

Other  other means i'm the "bumbleclyd" who wants the man, from trinidad and tobago to check at least one f-ing box.

Oh, and I don't believe that kids here really see or know the difference between schools in upstate new york and in the city. How do they know what goes on there? I don't know.

i like what you say rag man,  the home life is major in the building of a child's character and when a kid is getting home support it is tough enough to just survive when the cops are necessary at the front and back door of a school...


nobody will respond to this question of mine...i think either folks are studying or got suckered into another board...

any take on this i find it to be one of the oddest things on apps since i was a kid.

one of the general subject posts last night or yesterday refers to checking "the boxes" re: race on an application form...

he say: is it an advantage or a disadvantage?

and panther man gave a good answer whom i agree with on the value.... or lack there of regarding the greater scheme.


over the years i have collected some apps. with some pretty interesting boxes...anybody care???

i say get rid of the little boxes...think outside the box???

they are, if you look back, even a little in time so "small-time" and scatterbrained.

anybody else have thoughts on this???  i don't recall it being discussed back when i started reading this "quilt of confabulation"

was it discussed?
any thoughts?

Ugh you guys better pick and research which part of Africa you wanna go. There are some parts of Africa I wouldn't even fly over, let alone live there. Here are some hot spots that you want to avoid at all cost.

Sudan- Arabs are slaughering all the Black Africans right now.
Rwanda- They are still having some minor problems but it's much better. The UN is conducting the Rwanada Tribunal right now for the Genocide that took place in 94'
Algeria
Botswana
Burkina Faso
Burundi------- STAY AWAY FROM HERE.....
Republic of Congo
Ivory Coast-- haha yeah right...stay away from here too
Liberia
Tunisia




"morocco" can be fun...casablanca...
or perhaps "madagascar" is not such a bad idea very kool flora and fauna and some interesting wildlife...

"the gambia" is nice to visit as well.

i have a few friends who are from "ghana" a beautiful respite
But "live" there....hmmmm?

most of my friends from those places are sticking with the usa
it's not better or worse it's just different and if ya have lived in the usa for most of your life...we are caught up in american culture...much the same way that everyone can't shake their accents.

"new zealand" or "austrailia" are get away from it all places just a little expensive...
i'd say talk to folk from morocco, ghana, the gambia, but new zealand was cool i was there for two weeks in 1987...

but to really get away from any problems go to antarctica!!! that's the only continent gonna be left if some heavy *&^% goes down!!!

px.o. rsta.

I have family in Madagascar. It's a very beautiful place. I have pictures. I'll post it sometime.

aye lass,

you should def. post some pix of madagascar it has some of the most unusual animals in the world and only indig. to mad.  it is a kool spot. or just "koogle it"

for anyone interested....

Somebody said earlier about how black people are forced to move into the unsafe, dirty neighborhoods. I am pretty sure, but not certain, that what makes a neighborhood safe/unsafe clean/dirty is mostly the people who live there. Now stop fooling yourselves into thinking that other people come into the black community and throw trash on the streets and commit crimes. I see it all the time. People WHO LIVE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD just throw their chinese food cartons, beer bottles, and whatever else on the street. The people next door to me throw all kinds of crap in my yard. Then people use that to show what a terrible place society is forcing us to live in.

I don't care what anyone says. Getting a damn education is the best way to protect yourself in this society. It won't solve all your problems, but its the way to start. I just finished working in a public high school in the Bronx last semester. I was there everyday in the classroom and after-school. I am sorry to say that i was more than dissapointed with the way that the kids (mostly black and hispanic) were acting. There is absolutely no way that the next generation of blacks after us will be able to stop themselves from being forced from one place to another if they don't start taking this *&^% seriously.

I heard of a new thing that should catch on soon...its called responsibility.

And i can talk about it in this case because i make sure that i don't add to the problems in my neighborhood, i am getting my education, going to law school, and in  a few years, noone is gonna be able to move my ass nowhere.

 

ja rastafari!!

the nail is snug in the hole and square and plumb!!
keep it righteous man!!!!
i really like your talk!!
