Thanx doc for the Motrin script. I have received many email responses to
this post, most of which has been from non-whites telling me to shut-up.
I wonder what other AA men and women think. And to the author who pointed
out the beauty of women's swining breast and the M. Angelo's poetry, I
hope the boys/men who ogled the N.G.s for naked women perceived the art as
such as they masturbated.

The last think I need is a bunch of non-AA women (or non-AAs period)
telling me how to look at something. Your experiences are not mine so you
may never understand.

When I heard that crap, all I could think about is the African woman's
historical relationship with white men which has been a long run of rape
and molestation. In fact this relationship is the part of slavery that NO
ONE want to talk about.

As a life long student of AA history, ancient and modern, I believe in the
Sankofa approach that I must continue to look back in order to understand
the present and the future. Another part of the past and present is that
the AA woman, who could never be admitted into the 'cult of pure
womanhood' has continuously been defiled, maligned and etc. I merely
raised the question about AA men protecting us from this continuance. I
do not seek anything from the non-AAs. I and my foresisters have had
quite enough from you (metaphorically speaking) and your forefathers.

Now, I await your painful disection of this post. BTW, Alvarado, I have
decided that you email does not warrant further comment.
