The fact that you explained it tells me (and everyone else) the I, in fact, clowned you!


I knew exactly what you meant. I still think you'd like to "own" me, though.
Don't be ashamed, you wouldn't be the first young black man who wished to do so.

I think it's time we stopped this horseplay, though, before the mods come in here and tell us how off-topic this is...

U2U me.

Pfff.

Sorry, but I don't like my fruit overripe.


And, be careful about talking about literally owning people. We know who holds the title on that...

Truthseeka... AGAIN with the attacks...If you can't take it don't dish it out.

Remember who brought up owning people it was you was it not.

You are well aware of what is right and what is wrong, you seem to care though when it pertains to you.

The only time this is going to end is when we have a human history month and we recognise that all people's history is everyone's history. All the struggles, hatred, love, search for equality, it's all our history.

Many people have stories of oppression. Blacks and Jews went through slavery, the Scottish suffered under the Brits, others have served out oppression, others have had it, others have strived for independence, others have strived to be included. Some of us feel more affected in our present form by one history more than another because of our color, where we are from, or who our ancestors were, but we all have commonalities in our histories, and if we could recognise that, I think things would go a long way.

Also if we had true equality in our countries, there would not need to be an any people's month, because everyone would feel included and equal, this was not the case, and this was not happening and that is why you have separate groups having to highlight their histories, which were being ignored and buried or pushed aside.

I would like to see a human history month, where we all find commonalities that make us human, and the peoples who we are today, where we all focus on what's come and gone in our common past's and where we hope to go in the future

I would have to agree with Harassment..............History is history. If everyone was equal we wouldnt need a month to celebrate a certain skin colors accomplishments. Although it is still important to celebrate cultures of all types. Thats what makes humanity interesting.

WTF are you talking about?

I used "own" with its slang meaning, which is like you clowned someone, which is like...ah, forget it. Learn slang or something; too bad if y'all don't understand that. It'll help keep you from being "squarer than a box of Apple Jacks" (another E-40 reference).

So, what's your point, Lys?

Do you feel guilty about this cartoon?
Are we, in today's society, supposed to try to somehow "make up" for what the cartoon-makers of the past did? Is that what BHM is about?
Were there similar cartoons made of white people during that time?
Do you think the people who made that cartoon had the intention of hatred, animosity or dominance?

I'd like to know your thoughts instead of just seeing the cartoon.

Let me take a crack at Lys's point.

We've come along way babeee.

Oh.

Well, if it's that simple, then I'd have to agree.
Yes, we have.

Hey, we have 12 months per year so I'm sure there's enough months to go around. If it is what floats your boat, go for it.
Personnally, I would perfer a "human-kind" month where we all celabrate in each and every "race, creed, and culture."
What we all need is knowledge so we can better understand each other

Peace and have a good life!

Associate Press-MSNBC
Morgan Freeman says the concept of a month dedicated to black history is "ridiculous."
"You're going to relegate my history to a month?" the 68-year-old actor says in an interview on CBS' "60 Minutes" to air Sunday (7 p.m. EST). "I don't want a black history month. Black history is American history."
Black History Month has roots in historian Carter G. Woodson's Negro History Week, which he designated in 1926 as the second week in February to mark the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln.
Woodson said he hoped the week could one day be eliminated — when black history would become fundamental to American history.
Freeman notes there is no "white history month," and says the only way to get rid of racism is to "stop talking about it."
The actor says he believes the labels "black" and "white" are an obstacle to beating racism.

I honestly think that if I were black I would refuse to 'celebrate' Black History Month. I woudn't accept a measly month to celebrate my history. I'd be moving to get the history books in school to include the history of ALL Americans. Every time a new history book is written, there's the opportunity to include black history.

I'd be like Morgan Freeman and Bill Cosby. I'd be like, "Stand up and take your place in this country! It's as much yours as it is anyone else's! You ARE equal! Whether other people treat you that way or not is NOT the issue! Stand up and be seen, be heard! Don't wait for someone to respect you or give you something! Claim your stake in this country"!

I think I'd make a good black person.


BHM just feeds into the "separate but unequal" mindset.

I thought I told you to stop biting? First, my posting style, and now, a thread...:shk:

Guess that means I'm stylish, huh?
Almost as stylish as Dante from Devil May Cry, I guess...almost.
