My Sister the word Negroid that you insist on using in the contents of describing our people is very offensive. As for you referring to I as naive I am far to old to be naive in this regard. I am afraid that not only is your insistance on using this term offensive but your referring to me as naive is totally disrespectful. No where in my post did I attack you. I merely asked repectfully that you not use the term because it is not only a reflection of misguided knowledge on your part but it is once more offensive.
In this day and time most who are of African conscious refer this word to those who are not. If you insist on using it to define us as a people you are blindly referring to us a people who are not aware of who wi really are. In other words you are stepping backwards instead of farward.
It is a shame that you post very relevant post that are worthy of higher discussion but the heights are hindered because you are not addressing those who could reason on the level you are trying to acheive. We are not negroes or negroid. We shook those chains a long time ago.
