Thank you for the clafication and explanation.
I do think there are regional difference among blacks in tastes, music, dress, etc...Nevertheless, there are alots of these we share, which, i think, contribute to a "nationality" if i can use that term.
I think that we're being repetitive, so i think it would be fair to read all or most of the posts within the context of the other postees, so that we can appreciates eachother's posts.
In addition, lets me realistic. We can terminate racism and there will be some black people who are still lazy, poor, etc...just as there are whites, asians, latinos, etc...that are poor, lazy, etc.... I think there is some consensus, and now i'm reiterating something i've said, that we need and affirm a dual strategy of anti-racism and self-determination or personal edification.
In this regard, Smarti, people always can work on themselves, regardless of your obstacles, since there is always room for personal improvement. It is a two way street, structural and cultural(ie race, clas, gender)and individual(what you are going to do with the options and responsibilites that you have).
Lets strip away the personal charges and engage eachother on the issues of strategy.
