“This is not the whole story. He had the opportunity to have the bone marrow drive... but he chose not to address the issue of his videos...so his event was held but heavily boycotted. He made that choice.”

RWaters2000 on Nov 14, 2013 at 15:04:53

“His event wasn't held. He cancelled the bone marrow drive, so Spelman had their own without him. People failed to mention that. People also fail to realize there was NEVER a condition that Nelly meet with students in order for the bone marrow drive to be held. He could have NOT met with them and still had the bone marrow drive. Instead, he decided to cancel on his own.”

Study Proves Racism Affects Everything, Even Our Online Dating Habits

“"Most men (except black men) are unlikely to initiate contact with black women, all men (including Asian men) are unlikely to reply to Asian women"

So how does this translate to Black women are the least desired by non-Black men? My common sense tells me that there are a lot of factors that go into initiating contact with someone... attraction is one, but others include likelihood that they will also be interested in you, thinking that you may have something in common etc. The stereotype that Black women are the hardest to approach and the least likely to be interested in dating someone outside of their race... for whatever reason... probably plays a role there.

So if you are rating actual "desire" wouldn't you rather look at..of all the women who initiated contact with a man, which women were the least likely to get a response.. ? Which in this study happens to be Asian women...who were least likely to get a response from even their own race of men. But I've never seen any article claiming that Asian women were the "least desired" and people were being racist against Asians. Why? Because it doesn't fit into the storyline that media outlets use to sell faux racism.

To be clear I'm not saying there should be an article saying Asian women are undesirable. I'm saying that studies like these and the ridiculous assumptions about what they supposedly mean are actually just feeding into racist propaganda to get website clicks.”

“I don't think you understand racism. To deny people jobs based on hair that is common among certain ethnic groups is not part of being a free country... that is discrimination. These aren't just hair styles that people wake up and do. Natural hair is the way hair grows from a black person's head naturally... how can you ban that? Dreadlocks are often related to cultural and spiritual practices usually again among certain groups of black race. This is clearly discrimination. Even if its all about the "cash" you cant deny someone a job for racial and ethnic or religious reasons. You can't tell a Muslim woman she cant be hired because of her hijab or a blonde woman she will be fired if she doesn't do something about her blonde hair... Those are equivalent examples.”

“That is not what I am implying. I am saying let little girls be little girls as long as you can. As a parent try to control as much as you can. It may not have had anything to do with them missing but I am sure it had something to do with them taking the car. This is not for this paticular family. My comment is for all parents of young children. Stay in control of your home and your children. They do not have to like you. They have to respect you”

“The kneekjerk bias some people have against her naming one of them Mitt Romney kinda shows how myopic Americans can be. I just see it as the fact at that moment she was delivering, the two most powerful people on the world stage at that moment were Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. She named her children that because of the association with power. I'm not Kenyan but every African I know, has a name with a significant meaning associated with the nature of their birth or pregnancy as a prophecy for their life.”

“Politics aside I hope he gets better. This is a heavily overlooked medical issue that affects a lot of Americans. Not just depression but the "GI issues". GI issues are often linked to depression and other mood disorders like anxiety, but doctors usually just diagnose it as "IBS" and tell patients to change their diet when studies have shown that "IBS" can be managed with depression meds. It can be extremely debilitating and affects the quality of life of many people yet not a lot of research is done on it and there is no cure. Hoping he at least brings some publicity to the issue.”

“Why is this even an article...? Ignorant people on twitter will say stupid things, but do we really need acknowledge it with a legitimate article? I doubt it was an "on slaught" of people because no one i know commented about anything besides the fact that she is freaking awesome.”

“Exactly. They took a couple of tweets and try to make a story out of; in an attempt to overshadow Gabby's gold medal win. This was not done by African American women; because we don't care about her hair which is more than evidence by all the comments from African American women on all the sites that posted an article about her hair including comments on twitter. The republicans and tea baggers needs to know that this stunt will backfire just like everything else they have done.”

“Irrelevant. People keep bringing this up like it matters. Where are their biological parents??? No where to be found. You know why? Because they aren't parents. Basically a sperm donor and an egg donor who wanted money. They have shown absolutely no desire to be involved in these kids lives and they should be the last people on earth involved. Even if they were petitioned the only reason they'd take them is to have access to the kids fortune.”

“I would guess the true enemy is institutional racism. That's what created the situation in the first place. The enemy doesn't always have to be a specific race based group of people....as your mind was quick to jump to. I would also hope that every human would find every form of institutional discrimination to be the enemy, but that clearly isn't the case. Because any time the topic is brought up some people have a certain defensiveness about it... turning it into an "us vs. them" issue when the reality is, to put it colloquially, "Its not always about you."”

“.... if the admitted murderers were caught and let go for claiming self defense against unarmed kids despite evidence to the contrary then those would have become national news stories too. remember the outrage was that he wasn't even charged. it took protesters from around the country to rally around their family and bring enough attention to the situation that the federal government had to get involved. that's what brought this story to the limelight...short term memory eh?”
