 :D :D :D :D

Say an applicant is biracial, half black/half white, and they check both boxes on the applications that allow multiple boxes.  How do schools view this?  Would this applicant receive the benefits of AA?

Check white on the application and check black in your head and see how that works out for you, Moptop.

they have Macy's.... Dillard's too.. all bs aside though.. check out Kohl's as well..

Macy's (if you guys have that down there) has some nice coats, as well as Wilson's Leather. I just ordered a nice warn sherling girl.

No you don't always call the shots. Please note I am speaking strictly in generality. Do not bombard me with specifics and exceptions to rules.But basically, in high school and middle school women did the choosing, but in college the paradigm shifted. Additionaly depending on what kind of women you want, in this case Kiesha Korporate, wants a certain type of a man. Having said this, post college the effects of the paradigm shift become manifest. But I was always given the impression that safe haven exist in the form of NEw York city, but I could be wrong

I'm not sure I get what you're tryin to say...

 :D .. i'm still @ a point where i am trying to understand why so many people are choosing to focus on being black or in this case light v dark phenomenon as their ps.. you're blk.. i get it... but that isn't your life story.. being blk isn't what makes u want to be an attorney...

personally I think that if you want to write about the impact of colorism it would be better used for a Master's program or Doctoral program.. it's more of a sociological theme than legal...


*scratches head on this one*

The bulk of your Admissions Council folx are gonna be of the Caucasian Persuasion. How many of them really understand the whole "Light v. Dark" "Jiggaboo v. Wannabe" dichotomy between people of color?

I think your PS should focus on telling a simple story that ANYBODY could understand. If you were writing a thesis paper on the topic, then that'd be cool, but you really ain't tryin' to educate anybody within' those 2 pages (Double spaced) that you have to right.

yeah it's been a minute.. life has been interesting to say the least and i've been coping with it..

it isn't that it's paternalistic...it's moreso the subtle racism that spews out of the very people that have "taken on this cause".. there was a forum (that i almost didn't attend) entitled Code-Switching: Teaching Standard English in Urban Classrooms
and one of the examples that the speaker used was

"My momma can't get no man".. I mean hell if you're going to use an example why must it be that? One of my classmates spoke to her after the event and told her she should use different examples instead of playing into the stereotypes of single black mothers and their need to keep a man around...

or having TA's @ the beginning of the semester asking me specifically "do you understand" during the first couple of weeks of a couple of my classes.. then after reading my work or seeing my class participation it started to feel like they realized.. oh blk isn't here because of AA.. she really is intelligent.. *&^%'s just bs man and I'm tired.. I need a break and I am counting down the days to vacation but I'm not even sure if I'm going to be where I planned to be initially right now..



Hey blk.  Long time no see. 

the whole we need to save the lower class urban blk folks mantra is a bit unnerving..

Because it's paternalistic?

you don't need the long johns.. you'll get too hot.. i didn't break those out unless i traveled to chicago or new york during the winter months...

Definitely.  I will have to check out the cashmere sweaters.  I bought a couple of skirt suits when I went on my shopping excursion when I found out I passed the bar :)

I don't care what I look like on the weekends. . .lol.  Okay, I do, but on Sundays I normally wear something that I would wear to work (I might do different accessories with it or different shoes), and then put on jeans after church. And Saturdays I'm prob in jeans and a sweater or t-shirt.  I own three pairs of jeans--one light, one dark and one black.  That's it. 

I want a nice long coat (probably black or a chocolate brown) but I haven't found anything to suit my fancy.  I had a nice houndstooth coat but it was stolen--so I need something classy to replace it.

We dont' get much rain in winter.  But it does get cold in Texas.  Don't be fooled.  And unlike other places, it doesn't stay cold.  Which means that everyone around you gets sick because the weather never really gets stable. Blah.

I think my fun item will be some racy black boots . . . With some laces or buckles or something.

I don't know about the long johns . . .it gets cold, but not quite that cold . . . I normally opt for tights instead.
