If only we could make it up.
Just enough rage boiled up after reading this post and viewing the video that my muse reared her head and... screamed!Thank you Chauncey. It is stories like this one that always manage to fill me with anger and the question of, "What the hell is wrong with us?"!
I didn't read the comments when I posted this on my page. It was suggested by one of my readers that I do.OUCH!The way those comments read above, you'd think that Un-respectable Negroes were out of place to begin with. You would get the sense that this type of segregation still occurs and is in fact warranted.Maybe there's a no-Negro clause in their insurance papers or something?
yikes! i don't even know what else to say....
isn't there a legal and/or financial recourse? hitting the the club in the pocket is the only way to hurt these people otherwise they can just shut the gates and ignore the situation..
It's okay. We have a black president now. No worries.
As a blogger and someone who knows who i am my question is .Who are NEGROS? and why would any concious group of African descendants call themselves NEGROS?My name is Milagros Garcia Villamil, AfroCuban agitator, activist and former practicing Atty. I will not be joining this group and where i am glad that the issue concerning the children has been addressed it has a long way to go to being addressed clearly at this site.Perhaps, when one goes back to the incident at the pool, it may have been possible that the invite did not come from the top dogs, Rather, from a lowly racist staff member who knew that the NEGRO in charge would not do the footwork to track down the invite?It is also possible that the pool Adm/ city fathers et/al are hoping that a little African boy and a little white girl would not connect and make a Negro" baby further changing the complextion.??Theory, as long as African descendants remain in denial about our culture, ethnicity and continue to accept and use, the inane labels like red bones, teasing tan, the Negros, Colored, black, Brown, Mestizo,& Mulatto white racist will play the race card, because you stand for nothing and fall for all.This is a site that i would not recommend to any concious African descendant and i am ashamed.PS i can be found all over the net
@Milagros:Alas, the gene for irony and satire is not one that you have.We welcome your thoughts and contributions, but even as we grapple with having a blues sensibility born of our experience in the New World, and the U.S., in particular, one cannot take ourselves too seriously as it is damaging to the soul.Read some of our other posts with an open mind and perhaps you will be pleasantly surprised.I will put your comment up as a feature as I think you raise some interesting questions about the politics of naming: colored versus negro versus black versus Afrikan versus African American, etc.cd
Ok Cd i will give it a shot. I believe in youth, and will support you..Just please no more negros!! please!!!
