Is anyone else having problems logging in? For some reason I can directly into Curl Talk be logged in but when I go to to look at articles it says I'm not logged in.
That's crappy. I've had problems logging in too, but that was a while ago. Hopefully the webby can help you with this soon!

adthomas,

I swear the more ish I see the more I want to stay single...

Dear Texas Boy,

It was cute at first you calling me and texting in the morning to wish me a good day but now I feel like it's too much too soon. We have been friends and although you have never done me wrong I don't think a relationship is in the cards for us. Your in Texas and I've done the long distance thing twice and failed miserably (New York, Cali) I need somebody who is in my city to see if this can go the distance or not and this attraction is one sided (Mostly on your end and although physical attraction isn't everything I just don't think I feel it mentally or physically the way you do so far)
I rather be single, explore my options, and continue my education right now. Who knows what the road will bring but right now this is what's best. But I wish you well.


Dear New York Knotty Boy,

We are friends...and that is how it will stay!!!!! Don't mess up a good thing! We are not compatible, your too old,(ten years older is my limit) and your in Philly!!!! Once again no long distance relationship for me!!! But your a great guy, never done me wrong so I wish you well too!

*Pissed off rant*
You on the other hand are a piece of ****. You got drunk the other night, grabbing the asses of other Women (Me included) and asking girls to sit in your lap while your saved Christian Wife and mother of your two babies watched. She is a beautiful woman and she doesn't deserve this. She just gave birth a month ago and this is what you do! I hope she leaves your ass and finds a real man! You deserve to be alone , miserable and robbed for child support!

Little Mama wake up, I understand you are trying to save your marriage and make it work in the name of the Lord but this is abuse! Don't walk...RUN!!!!

I'm staying single. Just moved into my 1st place to live alone and I want to start a Masters program in January.

Don't have time for long distance relationships that aren't guaranteed to work and I have blocked all the forgettable and regrettable ones so they can't come to my doorstep with their bull.

Gonna be single and loving it until I see a man who is worth my time, where there is a mutual attraction and not afraid of the possibilities. Someone who is within my city limits too! Lol

He is soo good looking and fine as hell. I would be hesitant to go out with him. I know women must throw themselves at him.
Rihanna "Pour it Up Video" in the front of my head I'm thinking "disgraceful" but on the back of my head I thinking "they did the d-mn thing though." Yup blame me on why women/black women can't get ahead.

I guess I equate "pretty boys" with womanizers and I shouldn't label them like I don't want to be labeled. I feel sometimes men want to date me only because they think I'm eye candy/ trophy. Total turn off. I also feel sometimes people don't take your opinions seriously and assume you are not so smart.
Soooo my sister and I are once again on the opposite sides of the fence. I am Black. I am a Black American. I am a Black American in Taiwan. My sister feels like if I say or do something that I should not attach "well this is something done in mainly black/African American culture." Now to be clear I am not doing this around my students but with a coworker that I speak to and have really good conversation with. Also I am not saying black this black that but try to give the dual side of "America" and the Other. Usually its not a point I make to bring up either. For example, we were talking about fun things and activities high schools do. I mention stepping and show her some clips. She says, "Everyone does this?" and I let her know it is more prevalent in HB fraternities and sororities. We have talked about the n-word and interracial marriage too. Some of the slang I use during break time that comes out naturally is not commonly used in mainstream America too. My sister just doesn't want me to show her these things or talk about these things. I hate HATE when I have to be the role model black to give blacks a good name. It makes me sooooooo uncomfortable. Not only that, the Taiwanese people seem not to really have a lot of preconceived notions about AA in their minds. I want good thoughts to be there about AA but I don't want to be trapped feeling like I must use 100% correct grammar all the time (when the students are not around) or make sure I turn off my rap music if someone walks into my classroom during my planning period. What do you guys think because I sure as hell don't know what to think. I am only comfortable around her and the school soldier to let my guard down and just... be. However just like in America if I am around an administrator, I am just as prim and proper as can be (but don't we all do that???).

Boy did they ask annoying questions but I tried to open and responsive and they saw I'm just a regular person like them. That is how you destroy sterotypes and not pretending to be someone you're not.

I always use corrrect English when I speak because that is the way I naturally talk. I get flack about it from blacks and non blacks. My white friends tell me I act more white than they do but I'm quick to let them know I'm a black woman. I like many kinds of music. My favorite artist is Sheryl Crow. I went to see her in concert and didn't care about being the only black in the crowd. If you can't be comfortable with yourself it will be hard to make friends because people won't be comfortable around you. Don't let worry rib you of an amazing experience.

Anyone who is sensible will already know that everyone in whatever culture is an individual first, and that there's no such thing as everyone in a group acting and thinking alike. You get to answer their questions honestly, in your own way, despite what your sis or anyone else has to say about it ... or that would be my attitude, anyway

How amazing that you've stepped out of your own "back yard" to learn about people who are different than those you grew up with (Americans); even speak another/other languages! So many people are so scared of those who are unfamiliar to them. Many folks will never leave their own hometowns. It's sad. I think it's cool how you don't allow someone else's expectations to get in the way of you speaking how you want, enjoying the music you want to enjoy, and exploring foreign territories. Now that is badazz
