Good discussion, As far as the question about should blacks feel patriotic, I think we should. The difference is that I dont feel patriotic about what White America thinks you should feel patriotic about. I dont feel any patriotism for the America that enslaved us, beat us, discriminates against us. I dont feel any patriotism because of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson or the countless other **** traders and ****. But I feel patriotism because of what our ancestors were able to endure for 400 years, and like Maya Angelou said " Still we stand". I feel patriotism because of people like Crispus Attucks, Soujuner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Benjamin Banneker, Frederick Douglass , WEB Dubois, Booker T Washington and countless other black people who fought for us. That is what my America is and I feel extremely patriotic. Like Dubois said we have a Double Conscience, we feel like insiders and outsiders in terms of America, we are apart of America and Africa America. I dont love America but I love Africa America.

whats the definition of being intellectual...i mean do ya always have to spout some neo-soul, going back to africa, the black race is suffering nonsense??...i mean cant someone just be intellectual and talk about the positives in life while relaxing, sipping lemonade, and dreaming about the possible great future ahead instead of brooding and spouting shoudla, coulda, wouldas about what needs to be done to improve life...the most "intellectual" and caring person I have ever met was my grandmother who would sit on our car porch eating watermelon talking about the greatness of blacks ..she was the most countriest, caring individual and people didnt consider her any type of intellectual because of her accent and social status..yet didnt ramble on like a cornel west who talks about what should be done about the black community yet he doesnt give one cent to the black community, drives off in his brand new lamborghini, and formerly taught african american history to a bunch of snot-nosed white kids in harvard university instead of teaching to black youth in the different neighborhoods who really needs to know their history ... :roll: sad a person like that can fill an auditorium, a stadium even, but people wont even take the time to listen and learn about their own personal history from their elders surrounding them maybe because they didnt have the means and abilities to get the proper education but have seen and did things that would make many of our current "leaders" (HA LEADERS) shudder like lil babies with that said im gonna go like Prince the musical genius and talk about the greatness of life "purple rain-cinnamon girllll" style :lol:
