    Black People : Do any of you...

    Fast? If so, why do you do it? What type of fast do you do? How long do you typically do it? What have been the results of your fast? How do you prepare? I'm curious, because I've been getting info about nutrition and health and they talk about all the toxins we accumulate from the...

    Black People : KIDS PIVKING THIER NAMES

    It depends... My real name is an arabic name. It is long and people have taken the machete to it all of my life, but when I was younger, I didn't really like my name. I just wanted a "normal" name that people wouldn't mess up or make fun of. But as I got older I loved my name. My name means...

    Black Entertainment : Check out these gospel songs! they so powerfull!

    The song that I absolutely love is Smokie Norful's I Need you Now and Donnie McKlurkin's The Prayer with Yolanda Adams. I also love Yolanda Adams Open Up My Heart. All of these songs have helped remind of God's goodness. There are a couple songs that are not gospel, but they are inspirational...

    Black Spirituality Religion : How do you feel about this...

    I think you should start by researching and learning about ALL Afrikan spirtuality. I think that if you trust in yourself and if you trust that God has your back, in doing your research, you will KNOW where you fit. You will feel what is right for you. I don't think you should limit yourself...

    Black Spirituality Religion : Finding out who are Ancestors are for worship

    A while ago my mom was practicing Yoruba. My sister and I had pretty much grown up in the church and my mom was heavily into church too. We were in high school at the time that she started practicing Yoruba and she introduced us to it. My reactions to the religion was that it scared me. I...

    Black Relationships : Polygamy options for us?

    I don't knock anyone else for their personal beliefs about polygamy. I don't knock anyone else for participating in it, either. But for me, this is not an option. I was reading Kannte's post and the points that were made were good points, about how polygamy allows for a multi-dimensional...

    Black Relationships : Do you think it's WRONG for a 16 year old girl to date a 24 year old man?

    Instead of trusting your intuition, (God speaking to you), you made a choice based out of fear. You went against what God told you to do and chose NOT to tell the brother about your age. You were probably afraid that he would leave you alone or his feelings toward you would change as a result...

    Black Relationships : Cheating....Forgive vs. Breaking up

    Hi Foxi. One thing that people have a misconception about is forgiveness. Forgiveness is NOT about the other person. It is about you. I'll give you an example. Grab the popcorn. :lips: My mom and dad got divorced when I was in the second grade. My dad has done a number of things that...

    Black Relationships : Do you think it's WRONG for a 16 year old girl to date a 24 year old man?

    I do think that it is not right for a 24 year old man to be going with a 16 year old teenager. I know you may think that I sound old, but at this age, you shouldn't be focusing on love relationships. There is plenty of time for all of that. What grade are you in? What are you taking up in...

    Black Women : Plastic surgery

    But if you're happy with the way you are then why would you want to change? To me that would suggest that you really aren't happy.

    Black People : If You Were Granted One Wish ...

    :toast: Deepy- Me and you are on the same page, because that is what I would ask, more wishes and then when I get down to the last one, I would make that a wish for even more wishes, so I would never run out. Call me greedy, but I have quite a few wishes and if I had the opportunity to get...

    Black Relationships : Cheating....Forgive vs. Breaking up

    When you enter into an EXCLUSIVE relationship, it is understood that exclusive means you and me and that is it. Not you me her him and him. If we're only dating, then exclusivity is not in the picture. I wouldn't call cheating evil. I think cheating is hurtful and it can really knock...
