WHY IS THE BLACK VOICE,THERE FOR THE BLACK EXPERENCE LARGELY IGNORED?

It is becoming painfully apparent that the few in OUR FORUM FOR MOTHERS who are black, and answer posts about the proverbial "black issues" facing society ie, anything from VIOLENCE to THE MINDSET OF RAISING CHILDREN AS SINGLE PARENTS falls on deaf ears,or discounted or met with hostility.

EXAMPLE: The recent post about the new black panthers. The Black voice here,mind you,we  are from all over the world,has been ignored or met with hostility because we explain how insignificant the bastard org. is in our communities.

EXAMPLE:The single Mother posts that's attributed to the black race. We respond that the stats are inherently flawed, and get told we just don't wish to accept it.But we live it.

EXAMPLE: The rate of black men,teens and to a lesser degree women being in jail,we respond to, and make posts to explain some of the dynamics and the phenomenons behind the stats and yes, GOOSE EGG! 

Now, this is not true about everyone in this group,probably the majority is not represented in this,but it has been so frequent(negative blacks posts) to where as I posted two posts to discuss it, actually one was to rant, but contrary to those that may have stared clear of the damn sista post, it was opened to ALL,the wording was deliberate.

How will open and HONEST discussion take place if people form cliques(I've seen some trip all over themselves to pat a like minded on the back)or refused to response to certain individuals because of bias(because of past attempts to debate with that person,and HARD feelings) and or arrogant attitudes?

By NO means do I consider myself to be hall monitor,these are personal observations and feelings,I am not trying to influence one's thoughts on the above stated, nor have you agree with me. If you don't get it or care what I typed, feel free to move on.

I am trying to ascertain the motivations of some,if you understand let's talk about it.

Why is this a perception(what I stated above) that some of us see,why is this forum filled with the same bull we encounter in everyday non cyber life?

The only way Evil can triumph is for good women to do nothing!

 Keep it coming yourself.  I love to be challenged.  I don't know how much of me you've read in the past but I am currently still in rebellion against the upbringing I had, in which I was taught to hate specific groups, such as gays, or Muslims, or generally any people not in the church I grew up in.  I look for challenges to what I was taught, because I want to be proven wrong.  It opens up whole new worlds for me.  For instance, one of my neighbors is now one of my best friends, and the family is Muslim.  I've had SO MANY misconceptions thrown into the mud because I allowed myself to open up to the idea that maybe all Muslims aren't bad.  I try to apply that in every aspect of my life.  I am not always successful, but I try.

Quoting Shortiekt:

I just don't understand why anyone posts a 'why do black people _________ (fill in the blank)?'

They receive an answer, don't like it, then want to argue about it.

Well shit... What did you ask the question for?!

If the question is actually answered I cannot see any reason for argument.  However, if the premise of the question is debated, that is not answering the question.

Quoting Happymamax2:

I am pretty horrified by some of the prejudice I've read on CM! At first I thought that some of these folks would listen to reason and come up with different conclusions re. racial issues. Then I realized that reason is lost on folks that have already made up their minds. Apparently some of these folks know everything there is to know about being black, even though they aren't!

I'm really sorry there are so many people willing to feed their own hate and preconceived notions about black people and other minorities. It sucks. But for all the assholes, there are also many thoughtful white folks who are just trying to learn.

Some days I read this stuff and it makes me so mad I get rude. Yesterday I told a woman she was vile! Now, she's not the type of woman to care... Lol. But that is when I know I need a break! Maybe in a few days I can read some of this stuff and not get so upset. We will see...
