The Black Culture Community [OT 3] - 400 years of choices

#1



OT#2

We made it to three!
Not gonna lie, things have been kind of rough in a lot of ways, but we're still moving.

This being my first OT, I'm cutting out quite a bit because it feels like a different direction would spruce up the place. Will add more as time goes on. All obvious omissions will be added in time.




Everyone is welcome. WE celebrate culture and what unites us, but also what makes us different. Just don't come in here to start any nonsense. Whatever drama you find around the board, leave it out there. Don't drag it in here. Easy on the summoning spells and the "run tell that's".

Fill it out if you feel like it. It'll help people get to know a little bit about you.

malyse did the graphic work and got the links below together. I just jacked em.

Some things you should watch if you like good things. Not linking them, cos they pretty much say where to find them anyway.





Ok, I'll link this one because it really needs to be linked. Rod should be heard even if you don't leave a review.




"Whiteness"

K. That's about it for now. I'll fix it up as we move along.

I'm starting to notice this 1 guy on Facebook posts when I talk race relations.

I'm ignoring this dude and replying to everyone that pushes the conversation forward.

I'm not going to be that "black friend"
