I wish white people would understand, that blacks want to have equality and liberty, not to be white people.

You respond as if I am not a black woman, or is it that you think I don't understand violence or rape. I did live in an era where no matter how a white woman was treated, black people were subjected to worse. When rape was a way of white salemen doing buisness with extremely poor black women; this is not in some distant past or during slavery. Even though, that white woman may have not had full equality, Emmett Till was killed for making a pass at her.

I have not made this as black man vs. white woman, because black men and woman got the vote at the same time if they had lived under Jim Crow. If it were about male vs. female, I for one, do not like dynasties. I am not here to endorse any candidate, I am only here to speak against the vile accusations made toward Barack Obama. I think people here would rather support lies than actually have a black candidate for president. I like to break up these little self congratulatory fest, where dissent isn't expected.

As for your comments about Trinity United Christian Church, why isn't that what white people do at their own churches? Where I grew up Scots-Irish type of singing bored me. I went to a Presbyterian mission church, I missed the cadence of the black preacher, gospel music, an the movement of the sisters when they got the spirit. Even though everybody was black, it could have been white church. If you don't understand what I am saying here, speak to someone who misses the latin mass. There are some things that one needs that are cultural. We don't ask Eastern Europeans to give up the Orthodox Church or the Byzantine Catholic Church.

I like the word "unashamedly" it is good as "unforgivable blackness."
