    Do you mean Shabbat or Sabbath?

    And how did I remind you of that, what lesson, specifically?

    Hi Clyde,
    I've noticed your reference older topics in other topics with the same name. I'm usually not sure if your reference back to the 1st thread is for the OP to see other similar topics, or a notice that the topic already exist, merge.
    The previous topic with this similar title was started and neglected in 2009.
    Is it your suggestion or recommendation that the conversation continue in the original thread? BOT.
    I've read threads that go back 10 yrs or more, without a post. Should these threads be BOT with a single post? over starting a new thread?
    The thread where I posted about the Asians buying a street received a notice that the thread already existed in the Black Business forum. I thought seriously about where to put my post.
    Since it was not about Black Bussiness, IMO, I put it in the general forum. Should I have checked for that title before posting my topic in general forum. Or, should I remove my topic now that I know?

    Just asking for clarification.

    In the spirit of respect and consolidation.

    In this case, its both IFE,

    blackflame's question was clearly addressed in the 3 page discussion. Since he didn't know about the Thread, its my responsibility to share that his thoughts are not new here, and its probably the reason most of us wish to not engage or regurgitate something already understood; which is to say, there are no people the color of Black, only those of us that have dark and very dark hues of Brown.

    Even the color of Blue Black, given to some Africans living next to the equator is not black.

    Destee allows no Thread to close, they all remain open. Those like me and you that can find older Threads, bring them back with a current post. There is no prescribe manner of posting. A new Thread can be posted even when an older Thread may have the same exact title.

    When I find the above, personally, I will consolidate them for the readers convenience and further knowledge of that particular subject, nothing more, nothing less.

    Good luck with that blackflame, here's my position again:


    First, you can't change worldviews or paradigms. In other words, it does little good to argue against Black as our identity, nothing will come of it, at the end of the day.

    We know that we are a dark and very dark hue of Brown, not Black. Nevertheless, to communicate effectively, we must use the term Black People.

    I understand the black flame that burns within, but in order for me to communicate that fact, same as you, I must use the term Black ... do you understand this?

    Are you still without understanding, blackflame?

    I asked how did I remind you of today, specifically.
    What was it that caused you to realize today is the Sabbath, from me.
    If its the mere conversation, then say so.

    White people did not frame the word Black for Black people.
    SAY IT LOUD, IM BLACK AND I'M PROUD was coined by Blacks during the civil rights movement. Shouted during protest marches, black fist raised.
