Neymar, that is because too many people want someone else to do what they should be doing for themselves.
Well blacks by nature are "messiah"-based people. We will always look for someone to save us.

Please clarify:  Are Ethiopians Black?

What? :offtopic:

It's a simple question.  I thought you would follow the logic of it.  Perhaps you did.
But to skip that step, are Ethiopians subject - in your opinion - to the same "messiah" syndrome you mentioned?

Neymar,

If it has nothing to do with the thread, why did YOU bring it up?

You're the one who said:  "Well blacks by nature are "messiah"-based people. We will always look for someone to save us."

So, I am curious if you feel this applies to Ethiopians.

Really, it is a simple question.

That explains why YOU brought it up.  Thanks.

But you have not answered the question.

Let me pose it again:  Are Ethiopians subject, in your opinion, to the same "messiah-based" orientation that you said Blacks are?

I think posters on this board say over the age of fifty can tell you a lot of change has occured since the late 60's. In many parts of this country apartied was the rule of law.

Basically. :nod:

And no, his living and his service to people in this country was NOT in vain..At all.

Would he be happy with a lot of stuff we've let fall through the crack? Heck no, I agree. But I do not agree that that man's service was in vain. Far from the truth. :nod:

Great man....too bad it was in vain.

Meaning :shrug:
He completed his task that God set before him. If you read your bible Moses was not allowed to enter into the promise land and in fact, his body was hidden so that no one could find it.  The devil wanted the body to take before the people so they would worship it instead of God.

Thats an awful thing to say mate :no:. His goal around the time of his death was stopping the illegal war and helping with poor people. To say god struck him down before he finished this by comparing it to some old myth about a man walking around the desert with jews and parting seas is ludicrous.

The question is irrelevant.

And apparently, so was your assertion about Blacks being "messiah-based." Irrelevant and meaningless.

Now, had you asserted that Muslims and Christians are "messiah-based", you might have had a point.

Have a great day.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>

 

Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
