Especially when you're black and it doesn't actually apply to you.


I see your points but there are bad apples in every race.
Children should learn how to associate themselves with EVERYONE so that they do not go thru cultural shocks once they are on their own; in the real work so to speak

The more a child is exposed to different cultures and lifestyles the more enriching their life will be.
My parents were a bit overprotective and I attended schools with a predominantly black population that is whycollege was such a challenge for me....dealing with snooty white folks....not leading how to assert myself against their passive aggressive racism STILL follows me today. These are things that should be dealt with at ayounger she [/QUOTE

I'm not opposed to my kids have a white friend or two, but if their group of friends is majority or all white, they are
setting themselves up for all types of disappointment. I always tell people that learning to deal with white peoplein a collegial manner is important because its largely unavoidable, but I've seen it get black kids in a lot oftrouble. The black kid is the one that always takes the fall when shyt hits the fan.



This is indeed true. Balance is everything. Its a self loathing concept as an aa to choose to surround yourself with mainly whites. I have friends from all different races...however I connect mostly with gay white men bc they are fair and have experienced injustices of their own so there is a shared platform in our experience of prejudice. (some of them).

Are your kids REALLY friends with them or just more accepted. Is your level of acceptance dependent on who is around?

I find it odd that people want to be accepted by people who you must feel doesn't really feel that you are their equal with the whole " we are not one of them" everyone can pick themselves up by the bootstraps mentality while pushing the my skin is brown but im a "non black new black"

I had a white friend growing up .
Its fine .
 
White ppl on a macro level aint sht but if my son or daughter happens to find a needle in a haystack then sure they can hang after Ive properly vetted the yt parents.
 
But if my child is the one black person in a sea of white or dates a white then.....
 
Plus I plan to teach my child our history , the real deal about racism and our cultures values
 
 
 

Thumbs Up Pretty much sums up what I feel.

This is a great thread. Growing up I can Attest to my family having the same mindset that aa blacks are lazy. The reason being for this mindset is bc most blacks that migrate from other countries tend to settle in areas that are low income and they are in fact surrounded by people from this economic bracket.



I have always thought this and wonder how can yall all live the same place and in some instances the immigrant families never make it out but one group is lazier

The reason for their conclusion is that Americans were born in a country with a plethora of opportunities that they refuse to take advantage of. That they rather sit on govt assistance, live in the pjs and bleed the govt dry. On the flipside, after spending an extended period of time in the Caribbean, witnessed much more entitlement and 'laziness' from Caribbean folks. Yes, it is a so called laid back society but they benefit from hand outs the same way their as their American counterparts. Most of them live of their lands and have a lower expectation of life. In America, it is never enough...there is always someone with more money than you thus a reason to feel defeated and never try. Also if it were not for the struggles of aa during the civil rights many Caribbean folks would not have the advantages in thus country As they do now.

Blacks from other countries need to get off of their imaginary high horse and assimilate with American culture...
 
The 2 days i got to do some real work y'all make a nice thread like this?
 
sbrownie always tickles me. I know she has a disdain/maybe hatred for Jamaicans (males in particular)  but it's hilarious how she never ever manages to rep her island whichever it is, is it Jamaica?. High five for your consistency with keeping it a secret.
 
Could you expand on the bolded? Entitlement to what- hand outs from relatives or the government? If the latter, Tell me which island has the social programs or even just the ease of well, everything North Americans have so i may move there.
