pretty much.. there are a lot of people from Teach for America here @ my graduate school and they're very diverse.. from the white girl with locks to the asian that is hardcore about educational disparities in NYC..you never know what you are going to get.. and i believe that the organization operates in a manner where they feel that anyone with the desire to teach in urban areas can...

Is anyone familiar with the application process for Teach for America?

I'm just wondering if they give preferential treatment to minority applicants.  I would assume that since most of the students would be minorities themselves that minority candidates would be highly sought after. 

Does anyone have any clue about this?

i don't think they do to tell you the truth.  it's just a very diverse organization, i know so many ppl of different backgrounds who are involved. If anything, there seems to be a preference for ppl from ivies and ppl from Spelman & Morehouse.

No. I just thought I'd forewarn him. ;)

i'm the same way.. day after christmas sale is going to be a mess.. and i definitely need more sweaters since i've been away from the cold so long.. i keep checking the mail for my christmas gifts since i won't be going home for the holidays.. so i'm hoping for some gift certificates of my own...or a termbill payment for my coursepackets :P lol...

some warm sexy boots lol...even though it seems impersonal a gift certificate or two to stores that you love to shop @ so that u can use it for a big sale... or they could never go wrong with purchasing your books for spring semester ;)



I love Christmas shopping (to a point).  So far I've bought all my gifts online (2 digital cameras) but I'm going to the mall today to pick up some stuff.  I'm trying to decide why I want for Christmas from my parents (yes, they ask me).  Suggestions?

I definitely want some boots, though your second suggestion is definitely my issue,  Every time I look at some nice boots or sweaters I think how much cheaper it'll be after Christmas!

well yeah.. but I only order from places where I know my size and trust that the picture is accurate of the actual color of th article of clothing... i'm assuming here..but if you order something from a J Crew or BR.. more often than not if it needs to be returned folks would just go the store rather than the process of shipping it back out.. I'm not saying I don't go to malls at all lol.. but I do the majority of my shopping online.. I haven't bought a single Christmas gift from the stores this yr  :D..  all those people and all that snow?  :-\ i'll pass..

i rather shop online lol..besides that way i know no one else has tried on or returned the clothing

That's not true!  You don't think people return stuff they buy online?  That's why I don't buy online, because I'd have to buy 3 different sizes and return two!

well then tell those brothers making 50k to go back to school so that they can have more earning potential.. or tell them to man the @#!* up and realize that in this world there are plenty of women..blk women out there that are doing the damn thing and they aren't going to stop doing the damn thing and achieving their goals because Willie's feelings are hurt because he's making less than she is..it sounds like a personal problem to me.. insecurities because he's not reaching his own earning potential.. or maybe he is and can't accept the fact that the woman has surpassed him...



Wow. . . .this response is so shallow and materialistic. So he's at fault b/c he's making less. Nowhere in the scenario did I say that he was lazy or just sitting around twiddling his thumbs.

It is quite possible that he has a terminal degree, but he's working for the Gov't as a social worker or maybe a teacher in a small county.

Wow . . just wow.

calm down playa, calm down. you just need to find love.

that's exactly what i was saying MCB & pikey (triplets always have my back ;)).. let's slow it down for a sec for the people in Georgia.. geez i swear..

someone tell me where i said a damn thing about material things? i am certainly not looking for anyone to take care of me.. i handle my own quite well.. i responded directly to you and this statement But if you are making $50k and she's making $130k. That's not building wealth, that's you relying on her income. She the breadwinner...

take my response out of context and you misconstrue it into the bs that you've thrown @ me...it's quite funny that you couldn't post my entire statement which totally diminishes your reply....

I didn't say anyone was at fault for anything..seriously have you read my posts in this thread? did you not see where I said $ doesn't matter to me and I have always been in the position where I have grossed more? chalk it to the game of working in BigLaw.. owning and managing my own real estate and knowing how to manage money.. I'm comfortable with the fact that I have surpassed a lot of brothas in my age group from the financial standpoint.. it's never been an issue to me.. but I can't say the same for brothas like UNAS and you Mr Tru...

let me make it plain for the people... if you are a man and you have problems with your woman making more money than you do.. then simply do not date/marry outside of your tax bracket.. if you're grossing 40k and you feel inferior because your wife is grossing 100k plus then you made the mistake by not being honest with yourself about what you could deal with...

$ shouldn't matter (in the context of who's making what) but it does because there are some people that are real simple and real insecure.. that cannot take thier significant other's accomplishments as motivation and inspiration to do more with their lives.. and for the record.. I have never and would never throw money in my SO's face.. that's childish.. and I'm too old and mature to play those reindeer games..

now I didn't say anything about anyone being lazy.. is there a situation that you're thinking about in particular over there?

this all boils down to mindsets anyway.. you're talking about breadwinners and all of this other mess.. when one would think that in a household if the combined income is $180k .. you wouldn't be thinking so much about who's bringing in what.. rather than let's be grateful for what we have and enjoy our gracious living together.. it's this jacked up mentality that causes divorces and instability in the homes..

$180k household and you're disgruntled because you're making less? Pligga Nease...


well then tell those brothers making 50k to go back to school so that they can have more earning potential.. or tell them to man the @#!* up and realize that in this world there are plenty of women..blk women out there that are doing the damn thing and they aren't going to stop doing the damn thing and achieving their goals because Willie's feelings are hurt because he's making less than she is..it sounds like a personal problem to me.. insecurities because he's not reaching his own earning potential.. or maybe he is and can't accept the fact that the woman has surpassed him...

where did she say that dude was lazy though?  she didn't even imply it.  her response, from the way i'm reading it, was based moreso on UNAS and guys like him who are letting their egos get in the way bc this goes against the paradigm.  thus, blk is saying that dude either deals with it and lets it go bc it really doesn't matter, or go further his education to make more if he feels that HE needs to be the one making more.
