yo, i dont care how young a person is, if they intentionally kill someone they deserve to GO AWAY for a very long time.  kids know right from wrong at a very early age and they know that murder is wrong even before that.  the first thing that parents should teach kids is that there are serious consequences for taking someone's life.

I strongly disagree with this.  How can children be expected to automatically know right from wrong especially if there are no positive role models and if violence is a way of life from the time they're very young?  I think a lot of us pass judgement from 20,000 ft. and have no idea what conditions children are growing up in.  I agree that children need to be punished, but sending a kid to prison where there is no attempt at rehabilitation does nothing for the kid or for society.  Prison basically guarantees that whatever negative behavior the child has learned on the streets will be reinforced. You do the math, even if the little girl does 20 or 30 years (manslaughter sentences aren't nearly as long) she'll be back on the streets well before she's an old lady.  And then what?

For me it's pretty much a no-brainer but I'm curious to know what everyone else thinks?  

P.S. I'm assuming that by "go away" you meant go to jail.  Perhaps not... Feel free to clarify.

I'ma post real quick before I hop in bed...

I also got the impression that there was light girl bashing going on in the "Ask a black girl" thread.  I realize that that probably wasn't the intent but having had to deal with that BS consistently I will point out that its just as ignorant as any of the other craziness that came out with regard to standards of beauty.

Next, I want to mention that the person in the avatar is my little brother.  He's obviously a few shades darker & has a different nose, but same hair (though its not readily apparent from the picture) same eyes, teeth, etc.  We come from the same parents, but still look pretty different.  This is fairly common in the black community and speaks to the fact that none of us have any control over what we're going to look like.  Genetically speaking, the possibilites are infinite (BP, don't correct me!).  So, to treat any person as superior or inferior because of the way they look, as if they had anything to do with it, is assinine.  More importantly, because we have no control, we should embrace what God has blessed us with, whatever that may be, cuz its not going to change. 

As far as the female ideal beauty, I've always thought Lisa Bonet was beautiful. Mainly because she has the natural thing going on, but that applies to sooooo many women.  For a woman to be beautiful she has to be healthy.  When you eat right, have good posture, take care of your hair and skin, all that comes across.  What some might call minor details like that can make any woman beautiful.

This topic has clearly been beat to death... I'll add my 2 cents quickly since it's basically consistent with what's already been said which is: the characteristics that "define" a good man aren't quantitative (i.e. 3.9 gpa).  Any woman who chooses to focus primarily on these factors alone without taking into consideration the context in which these circumstances occur is bound to miss out on quite a few good men.  But that's not my problem...  And I'll go on record as saying blk reign has been on point throughout.  Harsh, but on point nonetheless.

Has anyone heard that "Wait, remix" with Free (whoa) :P...I'm Free's biggest fan right now!

I heard about this... I'm about to check it out in a sec.  I heard Free's putting it all out there which is kind of surprising because I never thought of her as the Lil Kim, Freak McNasty type.  Oh well...

i am interested in your definition of a good black man...clearly you can see that i've asked more than once

Well, my idea of a good man (meaning, the only type of man that I would ever even consider) is a man who is a Christian, an Independent (in regards to political party), preferably a virgin, preferably have graduated from a good college with at least a 3.7 GPA (however, this also depends on his major), preferably have been a science major or pre-med in college, the same moral and political beliefs as me, healthy, intelligent, very articulate, well informed, attending or planning to attend graduate school (preferably in order to get a PhD. in a science or med school), 5'10"-6'2", average to toned build, never have broken the law, preferably a vegetarian, no tattoos of any kind, no smoking of any kind, never have done drugs, no piercings, must like most types of music, not too extroverted (rather introverted), interested in having a family eventually, well read, nice, caring, understanding, extensive vocabulary, must dress in a somewhat preppy and nerdy manner, etc.

Keep in mind that this is my idea and definition of a good man.


Hey, you've definitely got me beat!  I just want someone who'll luv my dirty draws  :D

Out of curiosity, what happens when you meet a man that you like and he's missing one or more of the above?

So this is where the actions at, huh?

...While we're waiting for the definition... LOL.

I have no problem with a man that's "hip hop."  In fact, I can appreciate a man who's as diverse as I am.  And I'm not going to put black men in a box by suggesting that just because he dresses "hip hop" he can't also put on a suit and hit the boardroom or the company christmas party, for that matter.  In fact, there's nothing worse than a bourgeois man.  Maybe it's just me, but that seems so feminine.

So, when we go on our first date, I dont have to take the gold out of my mouth????????? ;D

Hypothetically speaking, YES you would have to take the gold teeth out.  Even I have to draw the line somewhere  :-\  :)  Which reminds me that I'll probably be meeting lots of men with gold teeth in Kansas City this summer.  That should be fun!

Wow, even you have a line.  And that was more than a yes, because it was in all caps.  Damn, do all the brothers in KC have gold teeth?

That was really more of a generic yes for all the brothas with gold teeth.  Just making it crystal clear that precious metals on the grill is unacceptable :)

I'm so urban today.. LOL.  :D
