In Response To: Photo album on the site *LINK* (ras adam simeon)
Ras Adam, you seem to be missing the principle here.
You and Ras Marcus are not friends like you and Ras Howard. So it may be kool for u to post Ras Howard's picture. It is different with Ras Marcus. Also MOST importantly, it is not a case where Ras Marcus was pretending to be anything that he is not. He said quite openly in the earlies that he was African. So it is not like he was misrepresenting himself.
Furthermore, Ras Marcus alerting you to his disapproval of your distasteful behavior could never be bigotry.
You did not address the points that Ras Marcus brought up, neither did u admit that you erred in posting his picture without his permission.
History has documented the superiority complex of Whites that make them want to dominate others against their will. It is from these historical lessons that Blacks are smart to be distrustful of Whites and their intentions.
There can never be any 'one love' or unity without basic respect.
ps: if that link to Ras Howard's pic that is coming up in your posts is not intentional, you may want to fix your computer. It is not the board that is causing it. I remember someone here telling you how to fix that problem in the past, if you remember.
