is having sex equivalent to dating?
i am 34 yrs of age. i would be lying if i communicated to this international audience that i have never slept with ones outside my race. during my early years of adulthood,(17-25) i like many men was influenced by lust and environment.
did this make me a sheep in wolfs clothing? i dont think so-as i was not 'hiding' my relationship from others. i did not view white, indian, and in one case an asian woman as trophies-i viewed them as they were women i met at college, and developed relationships with. i did not harbor any hate for myself or other black women during this time.
was bob a hypocrite, becasue he gave in to lust?
i think that his works stand on their own merit-but it is obvious that he was driven by some degree of lust for women. can we judge his whole being, by this shortcoming.
i think one of the keys to reasoning about sensitive subjects such as these, requires a level of overstanding, whereas ones may feel at home to discuss the reasons why they/we/i acted in ways that we did, so we can work to teach the youth not to fall prey to the same environment that ones did in the past.
truth and reconcilliation
