    Now, before people get too over sensitive about this, I ask that you keep an open mind.

    My closest friend was the inspiration behind this thread. So often does he say " go ask someone else.". With Black History month coming up, I'm sure people would like to ask questions about the impact African Americans have had on us as a race.

    This shouldn't be racist, it should be about learning more from your fellow man.

    Questions could range from culture, music types, certain slang, misunderstood myths, and food.

    Let's begin..

    Okay, I'll bite.

    Who really "invented" techno music? Was it African-American DJs in Detroit, or electronic experimenters in Germany? Where do people stand on this ongoing debate?

    Now lets go, just give me the signal I'll be there with a whole list full of new insults I've been dope, suspenseful with a pencil ever since Prince turned himself into a symbol.

    "One Time" in reference to police, that one I never understood. Heard it last night in a Ludacris song.

    Does anyone here have parents who lived during the civil rights era? If yes. What were their experiences with it?

    My mother used to tell me stories about how the little Jewish girls in the neighorhood would ask her about her dark skin--"Does it come off?"

    I never got how anybody would ever even think of asking something that stupid or even having the thought cross their mind. Even when I was young the thought never crossed my mind despite being white.

    For pre school and kindergarden I went to predominantly (entirely) white schools and once my parents moved to Oakland I went to a predominantly black school and even then the thought never crossed my mind. Everyone looked the same to me, no lie. Personalities if anything were more of a striking feature that would make more of an impression on me than color.

    Color didn't even become an issue until more of my black friends started bringing it up in 6th grade and it eventually mellowed out again once I moved to Berkeley for the remainder of my middle school tenure and going to high school there where it was incredibly diverse with every race/ethnicity.

    To ask something like that you just have to be plain stupid. What kind of idiot would think "Derp does your skin rub off?". Of course not you twit.

    Ummm, when you think about everything that happened prior to the civil rights movement, you'll soon realize how much stupidity there actually was in this country. I mean, looking bad, we've done nothing but stupid things and we continue to do them..

    and really, what would a little White girl in the 50's really know about Black people? It might seem weird, but back in those days, many people believed as fact that Black people weren't really "people".

    The classic thing black people get asked from white people is "can I touch your hair?"

    I remember a few white kids asking me that when I was younger which seemed kind of random. I never thought of going up to a white person and asking if I could touch their hair, it never intrested me.
    Schooly D and Ice-T first Gangster Rappers with NWA is considered the first major Gangster Rap group.

    Techno emerged from Detroit. It was influneced/evolved from electronic music from the likes of Krautrock and so on.

    Ok here's a question:
    Is it wrong that I immediately thought of Desmond from LOST when I read the title of this thread?

    Neither. Both have flat asses, and will not be a part of the militant plan to take out the Man.

    Yes it is. You now owe black America $5 a piece for such thoughts.:o

    My mom is 63 and my Pop is 65 so yeah they lived through it and their views of things are shaped by that and I try to understand that whenever we disagree about certain things in regards to race. One time my mom said that she thought that it was more insulting to be called a ***** by a white guy than a black one and I disagreed with her as I thought that it would be equally insulting. I realized later on that she had experienced a far more racist world than my own so that opinion shouldn't have been surprising.

    My mom says she remembers when blacks had to sit in the back of the theater and when schools were integrated. As a 27 year old black female it's hard for me to even believe how horrible things were. I mean we still have massive problems now but I couldn't imagine not being able to go into certain restaurants and having to sit in the back of theaters and buses. It offends me when some people say that blacks should just get over something that happened less than 100 years ago. I mean we are not that far removed from that time.

    Heh. As Louis C.K. said about slavery, "It wasn't even that long ago. It was less than 150 years. That's two old ladies living and dying back to back."
