This is the black culture epidemic, ANY time you choose to behave with a certain amount of decency and respect then you get called out as a fake, fraud, oreo, uncle tom, etc.. It's sickening that because you attempt to use proper english and don't embrace the style of rappers or thugs that you are fake. There are so many "RULES" of being a real black that it pisses me off! I love being black but I HATE people like Parker, and all others that continue to try and be racially divisive amongst Americans including the rich and the poor.
As far as him dating a white woman....I do stats for a living and I'll break something down for you....there are more white people in American than any other race....there are more women in the country than men....so there are more white women than any other racial make-up in this country. When you start going to college, except historically black colleges...those odds are increased even more....guess what you'll probably end up seeing more frequently than any other type of woman on campus....you guessed it....white women...! I'm not married to a white woman (wifes latina) but I've dated several, if I was on mars then I would have a martian wife, probably because that's what I'm surrounded by...it's just the fact of life! You marry/date who accepts you, share common interestest with, and the most important who you find hot (joking), not who your race says you are supposed to.
People are also proud to be a redneck. We are who we are around! I guarantee most blacks kids with two parents working hard everyday don't worry about people saying they act white. As far as talking proper english I've been places where I could not understand what white people were saying.
Also, why are you lumping all black kids together?
worship where r your glasses.....what r u responding to?
Yes people are proud to be redneck but by not being redneck i've never told that i'm not white enough.
Sarah sorry about the Herpes.
Do you know what a wigger is? It was coined by white kids. It is a white kid that tries to act black. Also, the most dysfunctional men in our society are white men that are not successful or fall short and they are the majority of people seeking mental health services.
As I have stated a lot of powerless white males become dangerous. Serial rapist and killers, mass murders and kidnappers of children are all powerless white males that are mad at the world like that guy in Connecticut.
As a sociologist I know why a under class black community developed and prayerfully it can be revitalized in the future, but let's not act as if there are not issues in the white community.
You've sounded pretty angry yourself past couple days. You wish to talk about it?
'We' are the movement. Just do your part to defeat ignorance. I'm dating a lady whose brother believes that blacks are cursed because he believes the Bible states so. He refers to the curse God placed on Canaan. That curse also ended with the Canaanite people and has nothing to do with blacks in Columbus, Ohio, but this is some of the ignorance reflected by Mr. Parker and those like him of all colors.
Sociologist are the angriest people...lol!! My mom has been one for 60 years and is still bitter towards whites. You can't 'make' people 'well' if they do not want to be. Besides, if one wants to always be the VICTIM there is no hope for them going forward because it is soooo easy to blame another for your plight in life. F-that! Man up. Suck it up. If you get punched in the gut, get up and move on. I am so sick of the whiney, towel-wringing, tear dropping wussies singin that ole slave song bs. Call me an uncle tom: GO TO HELL! I just can't care about you anymore if that's what you think.
Takes a lot of strength Ty.....good luck.....
unfortunately crazy doesn't sound crazy to crazy people......did u follow that worship.....i am only embarrassed because a sociologist should be able to read, decipher, and offer intelligible constructive help.......yet we saw none......Nothing related to the subject matter.....nothing related to anyone's comments....only the sad drivel that is continually spouted from the haters......there r large communities unfortunately,of all color classes that feel the way u do worship.....u r the problem......unrelenting , unforgiving, and unable to move the process forward into the healing phase.....has anyone walked away from your advice "moved to do better"......or do they only feel more entrenched in their bitterness......Jesse and Al's army
You sir are funny.
Read my post on the 2nd page of this thread. Now look at your post.
I guess, by your definition, I was/am a wigger. And using your logic I am at higher risk for being dysfunctional and therefore to become a rapist and/or mass murderer. Funny thing happened along the way, in spite of my own identification with being black (even though I was white), I went to school, got a degree, got an advanced degree, made a boat load of money, and retired at 35 to stay home with my kids. Maybe I have yet to realize my full potential as a sociopath.
That's the danger in using statistics and hasty generalizations in a conversation like this. Instead of identifying causal relationships, you create them. Your comments are only perpetuating a stereotype while hiding behind the guise of academia. It is the most dangerous and perverse form of bigotry that exists today. It is born out of a desire for approval and over sensitivity to criticism. It is generally histrionic in nature. Take a second and take a look at the personality type of one Jerry Sandusky. You guessed it... histrionic.
Hello pot, my name is kettle. by the way, you're black.

My only point was not to stereotype white males but point out that the notion only the black community has issues is false and as long as the conversation was about the black community it was fine! You talk about generalizations but the majority of post were generalizations of the black experience! I just flipped it around and now you are outraged!
Simply most of us are a product of our environment. Yes, many are resilient and overcome regardless of obstacles but most need positives assets taught to us by caring adults.
Through my work I've seen the worst of humanity and it does not have a color and that was my point. It is funny to read all these post by white males about what is wrong in the black community when there is enough dysfunction to go around among all races.

I'm not angry my friend only pointing out that there is enough dysfunction to go around. As long as we were talking about the black community everything was fine. Interesting!
Yes we all know all races have dysfunction. The topic of the thread is about the thought of someone not being black enough. Which is an asinine thought. People are not defined by race, but by the individual they that choose to become.
I know that was the just of the initial post but it involved to an over generalization of what blacks feel as a whole. Bottom-line there is diversity of experiences in the black community just like there is in the white community and dysfunction.
Furthermore, as a Christian I have no hate for anyone and have been blessed to help people of all races. I do disagree that choosing who we become is always the case. I've seen level of abuse of children that has traumatized them until they were able to get help. As a result so often they engaged in unhealthy behaviors and relationships that spiraled their life more out of control. Be blessed.
People SHOULD not be defined by race, but by the individual they choose to become.

your right Ty .....i don't understand why it is not banned for the symbol it has clearly become....intolerance.....they need to be prosecuted and purged from society....the KKK is clearly racist and the freedom to spew hatred should not be tolerated
What are you talking about? Nobody wants to be told that they act white like it's a badge of honor or that because you use correct grammar and dress a certain way that you act white...that's retarded! It's embarasssing that people are surprised that you speak that wayor dress the way you do. I
I've also been places where I couldn't understand people (mostly southerners) but what's your point? How did I lump all black kids together?
Agree wholeheartedly, yet my point was general and meant to say Prejudice will one day be eliminated...
But I did no a girl in town who had a cross burnt on her property....
You profess Christianity, but Humanism is the Law for sociology. Please refine?
Sociology is the science of society, social institutions, and social relationships; specifically : the systematic study of the development, structure, interaction, and collective behavior of organized groups of human beings!
Consequently, it doesn't have anything to do with my faith and work as a minister. Studying people has shown me that regardless of your race or economic barriers if you are taught assets for success you can become successful and one of those assets for many is involvement in a religion.
My point being based on my experience of working in every school district in Franklin County, every black child is not being confronted about talking or acting white. Also, my kids went to Catholic school with other black children and Eastmoor Academy and the topic never came up.
Bottom-line the dude that confronted Griffin is ignorant and we should not proclaims he speaks for all black people!
this thread got derailed.
