Forget what I just said.

I understand it may be comforting to you to see other black people, but I don't want you to think that you should feel uncomfortable if you were the only one there. Just because you look different doesn't mean people see you as different.

Especially when it comes to the treatment of women and POC.

The only reason I may choose to hang out with Black people more often is because of cultural differences, but I don't pick my friends based on race since I myself am multiracial anyway.

Confused.

People who make fun of the disfigured people they see in church. They're all part of the potpourri.

This is a big reason why some white people treat blacks differently. Because they see them isolating themselves and it makes them feel uncomfortable. We don't understand why you do that so much. Just because your day in the life is different doesn't mean that people aren't interested.

White people really feel that way.

How are things ever going to change from a racial standpoint if you avoid white people and where white people are because of "cultural differences".
Do you speak for all white people?

What would you think if there was a small percentage of whites within a group of blacks and they only seemed to interact with one another?

People can do whatever they like.

Ummm... ?????

Slinky, your posts really don't make any sense. What in the world are you talking about? No one here is trying to speak for all white people. And really, what propaganda?? I really want to know where you get your info from.
Turtles: omg please don't put that in your moo moo

Nej: too late... moo moo has been infiltrated.

You lived in Austria? Well, I guess you have perspectives that I couldn't possibly have from that alone.
