Bantu-Kelani, that I can accept as a reasonable answer, I have seen some of your posts now and cannot argue that you post out of intelligence.
To address your statements and assertions now. I have no fear to debate you about black issues both intelligently and respectfully. I have no expectations to a responce. I can talk all day til I am blue in the face about how I dislike the white power system, that doesnt change anything nor does it validate me in anyway. I have put in work against this system in my own ways. I do not need the validation or acceptance of others to make me feel like someone, I have no regrets for how I have lived, or continue to live my life. I did not call anyone racist...yet...trust me I have no problems calling apples apples, yes I do think that some people posting here are dillusional, I guess my generalized statement was a bit harsh and uninforemed, I apologize. I have no integrationist boys here, I do not think I am a rasta, I dont have dreadloks, nor am I a hippie. I do not and will not post ONE LOVE nor will I post speeches in hopes of gaining your acceptance or to make me feel like I am part of your club. I know I am an outsider looking in, I know that I do not have any right to tell black people or any other people for that matter how to run their lives. No I do not feel that the blacks who feel the most domination and oppression to be dellusional, I grew up in Gary Indiana, I know and understand the effects of this system on non whites. I do consider peoples statements dellusional who post simply out of passion, responces that are blanket statements of an entire group of people, I dont give out free lunch passes just because you had it bad. I was specifically refering to the statement made by karibkween "It is the same regardless of the endeavor. From the little Afro-American genius, to the reggae musician on tour. The sponsors, promoters and organizers are overwhelmingly "white" and their job is to ensure that the money does not stray too far from its source." I fully consider that statemnt to be delusional and paranoid.
I have no desire to effect the decisions you are making concerning black people, nor your powerful culture. I came here in hopes of gaining a better understanding of what your people consider to be issues and how you plan to address them, after all we must all inhabit this planet together, that is not going to change.
