All the women in here shut up or get out. Those are your two options. You have demonstrated remarkably well how you can run threads into the ground. LadyDay had to start her own thread just to have something positive for females on the BLSD. You don't see the fellas cuttin each other down and callin each other burritos here. Porch Monkeys maybe, but not burritos.
Ladies, we love ya, but this thread is for the fellas.

Now to address the substantive issue my man raised about male basing threads. A true guy topic. Yes Made4Law that stuff is played. If Waiting to Exhale has taught us nothing, its that females pick the wrong ni@@as, and then turn around and complain about "men" when they should be complaining about their selection.
For the rest of the brothers on this board, continue to hold it down. You are continuing to pave a way for our community as a whole. My school just sponsored a Men of Color panel in which several DA's, Corporate Lawyers and Judges were present to share their experiences as men of color in the legal profession. It was uplifting and enlightening at the same time. One cat broke it down the best when he said that there is still very much a struggle that exists today in America as a whole and the in the legal practice. White folk AND BLACK FOLK ALIKE will call up your firm for help on their case, will see your credentials on paper and request you specifically, and then when you show up in person their tune changes and they want somebody else.
One brother confirmed the mantra that many of us are familiar with. Brothers, you have to work TWICE as hard to get 1/2 as far out there. He was telling me that as a partner in his law firm, he has seen white associates produce work that would have got him thown out the door a long time ago. As brothers, know that we have a small margin of error. One slip up and that's it, they're ready to put you out of the practice.
I have a good feeling about this crop of brothers though. Cats are definitely doing your thang out there. Acceptances to top schools and the whole 9.
Keep your head up and your eyes open.
