    ^I hear you and at first my attitude was that when you put something out there for public consumption, you can't control how other people react to it. Still, you can't expect people to have some respect for that piece if they don't know what it's about. Some folks would still act like juveniles, but I have a feeling that most would be more respectful if they knew the significance of the piece.

    Anyway I hope it's still up next week when I'll be in NYC. I've seen The Gates in Central Park years ago and I'd love to see this.

    ^I think you're giving white/other people too much credit. It's 2014. Who doesn't know about mammy images and the oppression of Black people? I'm going to let other people be responsible for their own ignorance.

    And I think we over estimate how much white folks know about black folks.

    I've decided to stop pretending I am not bothered by this because I am...

    http://www.economist.com/news/britai...and-perplexing


    "As Britain’s mixed-race population swells, another group appears destined to shrink. The Labour Force Survey reveals that 48% of black Caribbean men and 34% of black Caribbean women in couples are with partners of a different ethnic group—with higher proportions still among younger cohorts. Black Caribbean children under ten years old are outnumbered two-to-one by children who are a mixture of white and black Caribbean."

    Oh well....

    "It is the year 2070, at the Notting Hill carnival a minute's silence is held for the absent Black Caribbean community. Their policy of integration was too successful."

    That makes no sense. As long as there is immigration, there still be an Afro-Caribean community.

    What the flying ****?!?!?!?




    The management and associates of Feed a Child extends our unreserved apology to any person(s) or group(s) who have been offended or hurt in any manner by our recent commercial that was shown on national television and YouTube. Our intention was not to cause offence.
    We acknowledge the fact that the advert could be seen as insensitive or distasteful and we take heed to the fact that many perceived the advert as racist. This was most certainly not the intention, and again we apologise.
    Unfortunately the core message of the commercial became diluted or even lost through the interpretation thereof. The core message of the commercial was to draw attention to the extremely important issue of malnutrition and raise awareness of the plight of many children in South Africa who go to bed hungry. The commercial requests assistance to help us as an organisation (and many other organisations who do similar work) to address the situation.
    The decision has been made to withdraw the advert from all media. We realise that the advert has gone viral on social media however, with the effect that it is no longer in our power to pull the advert from all media altogether.
    Aint nobody nowhere gonna tell me this was not intentional.
