    ekelsey02,

    Welcome to Destee.com ekelsey02, as our Sister Destee would say...make yourself at home because you are. I certainly hope that statement does as much for you as it did for me three (3) years ago, and I've enjoyed being here everyday sense.

    Believe it or not, our words mean an awful lot and serves as encouragement, especially when the chips are down. I'm sure Destee will be encouraged when and if she has opportunity to read your post.

    Of course, all I've said applies if your post is being directed to the site owner, or which ever poster...Peace In.

    I hope this will manifest this year, because there were times last year where the interpersonal negativity was so thick, one could cut it with a knife, and it seemd as though some folks would come here just to celebrate ish or get together to beat up on one member or another , and then thank each other for spreading negativity at a time when Black folks need to expend that energy on the opressor, at a hightened time of attacks on all of our communities in every city and state.
    I hope that in this new year folks will be able to squash their peronal gripes and animosities, and be able to look at the bigger picture,
    for the common good of the race,
    that will take as you say a combined effort of all of our talents and skills

    Love You!

    At first I thought it was an accident that I came upon this site but after reading this part, I no longer think so.

    Brother Dre Money ... Welcome Welcome Welcome !!! ... :wave:

    You have endeared yourself to me, by virtue of simply reading our mission that far! :)

    While it's received lots of views, I don't think many actually read that far down!

    And then Dre Money ... you quoted a part of it that has always warmed my heart! :love:

    Yes, that is our mission ... and I'm oh so very glad you like it !!! :jumping: :jumping: :jumping:

    Please make yourself right at home, because you are!

    Much Much Love and Peace.

    It might not be a bad idea to combine all of these into a charter. It seems like there's multiple posts that make up what the tone is supposed to be. Maybe like one stickied post that links to the different post in one place might be a good idea.

    Thanks Destee but I haven't finished reading the rest of it, I got that far down and I knew all I needed to know. I like how it's real chill and laid back but a level of respect is maintained so posters don't get ran off and if they do it's because they couldn't abide by house rules. That's the way it should be on every site IMO
