Go Black, I love the picture of the brothers at the Olympics...I may buy that shirt from house of nubian...

As for Luke, I don't like what he does, but he's a business man no different than Larry Flynt or other folks

No, I am not a racist. I have known a few black people and for the most part they were wonderful individuals.

I love this qoute, because it basically puts blacks on the outside of what is considered "the norm". How many blacks folx do you know that can honestly say, "I know a couple white people".

NOt very many because of the fact that as black folx, our culture is seen as being outside of mainstream. Therefore we don't have the luxury of using our association with white people as any type of validation. All tho we think that the White Man's ice is colder and that anything associated with black folx is "Raggedy, run-down, ghetto, boot-leg" and the sort, it still doesn't earn us any brownie points to say,

"I can't be racist, my bestfriend is white"

Blk, I recognized this scene from barbados right away;)  I used to work at a hotel, just across the road from this beach.  The area is called Bathsheba, and they hold surfing meets up there.

First let me say Good Afternoon BP  :)

I would love to frivolously spend my money on a trip to Barbados but right now I am trying to get my finances in order so that later on I'll be able to take a trip wherever and not have to worry about how my bills will be paid when I return...lol...ya'know!
