Can the Community be expected to continue without it? Should it be Celebrated? Taken for granted? Promoted? Do you realize it's importance, but feel no obligation to contribute to it? Please share your thoughts!
We should be discussing black love as a community, etc. it seems that after freeing ourselves from the oppressions and violence of slavery, segregation, etc. African Americans somehow committed suicide, etc. We've apparently turned all our hatred against each other, etc. Self hate consumes a great many of us, that's why we find it hard to collectively join hands and minds together to work together to solve our many racial, social, and economic issues, etc. we must work collectively together as there will be no more Dr. Kings', etc. as if to help us find ways to continue to overcome our social situations in America, etc. We all must now do our part, complaining is one thing, yet finding workable solutions is worth a united effort, etc. Hell, we all claim to know what's wrong, now... lets fix it! Have a great day...

Lets talk about "Black Love" period. Not just between a black man and woman, but between all of us as a people, etc. We can love each other based up mere sexual gender, but not love each other as a people, a ethnic group of human beings, etc. Is this to be believed? Isn't this why we don't have many support groups, etc. We don't trust each other enough to collectively join hands together and work for the betterment of all Black Americans, etc. 400 plus years of violent and mental oppression, did have a toll on our people, etc. After we freed ourselves from bondage, we seemly committed suicide by committing all this gun violence against each other as if we forget who our true enemy really was, etc. Look at our inner cities, etc. where young and older black people are murdering each other by the hundreds, etc. Now where is the black love in this? Should we celebrate? Or.... "I'll leave that part up to all of you.... later...

Just because people come here to share ideas on different topics should not be interpreted as though they aren't doing anything but talking. There are a ton of threads here that address Black love in one way or another. A great number of members have shared what they do out in their communities to address issues and support each other. Some of us work in fields and get paid to support each other. Obviously we are paying attention to the issues, nationally and locally. This discussion board has been around for over 20 years. Longer than some of the younger members in age. I would venture to say that whatever you think about US, it's already been discussed here. In my opinion, everything we think and how we feel bears repeating because it may be new to some among us and who knows, maybe the idea will catch fire and spread and be the solution that will finally free and uplift us.
