Yeah, but you're a brotha, are you not? If I remember correctly, you posted a photo of yourself while back.

What is acting black or white? I think we all bleed red, we all have pride, we all have wisdom, we are all the same except in the movie theater; what's with the yelling and getting all emotional with the movie?

Damn, i need to get me some of them white dollars. I have green ones. Oh, BTW, I drive to NC once a month to see my parents and I go to a Black Barber shop there, owned and operated by African Americans. However, I don't go there because it is a black business, I go there because they do a damn good job, have excellent customer service and I am probably their only non-black customer besides my dad. I will only go there and will never even entertain the thought of getting my hair cut in Philly. I'd rather let it grow out like a mother instead until i can get to north Carolina, The shop is in a run down part of down, the shop is run down but I don't mind as I like the guys, the atmosphere, and the service.

Like I said before, I can't speak for a mass group of people but only for myself threw my experiences. I am happy I am not locked up and yes racism from both sides of the isle is still alive and well today, but we will learn that many things are relative as we move on. If I could snap my finger and show everybody that we not need to harbor hatred towards each other I would. I guess we can wait for next year to come, but the truth is we travel by the second, so its going to take time for us to get where we need to go as a United People of all backgrounds.
Very well said and true. It saddened me the other day when I went to a Muslim owned Philly sub and cheese steak place where I overheard a couple of young Muslim youth saying that THEY were "America's new and latest N----s"

No I didn't say that at all but it seems like you just did. Very uncool.

"Act like the Obama family" "there are very few models, very few people to look up to, very few role models in the black community IMO" blah, blah!

You white guys can only speculate. Same negative assumptions can be said about caucasians too from our perspective.

Obama is black? Yes, we crackers also have some major issues, the same as the rest of all other races.
Behavior is not based on race but rather on culture, let's get that straight first. For anyone to act one way or the other it all depends on upbringing and culture. It just happens that different cultures are espoused by different races. So when one race clashes with another it usually stems from cultural differences if either side is sane. If the clash is due to race only, than that's sick!
