    I hate to say it... but yes... this is a dumb question.

    Segregation or integration... whatever you feel more comfortable with.... none of it matters when you're constantly under attack by a government, a system, or an institution, intending on destroying any notable progress black people make, whether its through imminent domain, blatant terror and rioting, or destructive policies that do our communities a disservice.


    At the end of the day... just answering the original question in a since is allowing outsiders to decide how we as black people should be governed; Yielding power and authority to other groups who more than likely do not have our best interest at heart.

    Its up to our communities to decide what makes since for our future and clearly that will require us to engage and resist simultaneously.

    Here's the problem. The system is itself isn't racist, it's just a process. The people running the system are racist/elitist as hell though. So segregating ourselves does nothing but give us even less control within the system.

    What we should be doing is uniting as a group like Jews do(we have way more numbers) and start influencing the system in a big way. That's what we did pre-1970's, but then we decided to throw our influence into the party system. One that props up White leaders, and one where we get acknowledged a few months before an election every 4 years. We could control either of these parties or both for that matter. Our vote tips the scales like no other one in America. But we don't demand shit, we just look for nice "pat you on the head" type speeches of "outreach", and rinse repeat. We should have flatout demand an end to the Drug War years ago, and voted for whoever does that. Jews do it when it comes to Israel matters, Latinos with immigration, Muslims with their fuckery, Whites with their SJW bullshit, but we don't do a damn thing despite holding all the cards.

    Yes, of course!? That was my point. I'm not sure whether we're understanding each other.

    But yes, we, as individuals (I really don't like the group/herd mentality) should be free to make our decisions and mistakes responsibly.

    Of course, education is always an essential importance along the way that helps us not make those mistakes, but if we do, then we should hold ourselves accountable (with the exception of children).

    As for land, I'm not sure what you mean.

    If you're talking about private ownership, then of course. I'm 100% for that.

    If you're talking about the 40 acres (and a mule), well, that's complicated, heh. I have a divided mind about reparations.

    If you're talking about separatism or the carving out of America for a Black America, I'm also of a divided mind about that.

    I'm just saying that it all starts from individual freedom from, imo.

    Yeah your free to segregate yourself by "race". But...that is pretty hard to impossible to do in modern America. Also believe it or not the races were never really separate in America...due to Europeans forcing themselves on the others. So there seems to be a distorted understanding of segregation. That was less about real separation and more about using energy to try to keep people down...based on the color of your skin...makes a lot of sense and works great (obvious sarcasm smh) Which hurts the oppressor or perpretrator too.
    This is a "come back here with me" topic. Who even sits around thinking about this. There is life to live in 2017.
    People can choose who they want to associate with but as you said its personal choice. Maybe others dont want to limit themselves in those ways. All black people arent a monolith exactly the same...
    Alright I went backwards enough to address this "topic" Im one who is about winning in todays world not going back to some theoretical and nonsensical...who knows what it is supposed to be.

    I might agree with most of what you've said, but this here doesn't seem to be true for what appears (to me at least) to be obvious reasons.

    Blacks are, what, only 12% or 13% of the population? It's been said that we didn't really even vote Obama in office. White women did, right? We overwhelmingly vote Democrat, and they still lose at times. The Dems even take our vote for granted. Doesn't sound like we have as much political power as you say.

    That's interesting. I agree with you. I think you're right about segregation too, though the oppressor seems to always remain firmly in power/control despite the "self-harm."

    But yeah, times have certainly changed, but I still think some "theory" is necessary, if I understand you correctly. It just needs to be accompanied by productive practice that fits, as you've said, our modern times as well.

    I know people are tired of all the talking and inaction and even the action of marching and protesting, but that just means that we (as a group) are not being very proficient with the productive action part of it all.

    13% of the population yes, but a quarter of the Democrat party base. If we threatened to drop our support, the Dems would be done. If we threw our support to the GOP they couldn't lose. We hold the most unique position in American politics, we just use zero leverage. In fact, the Dems have us co-signing gay agendas, and their whole SJW platform. Latinos have lobbies putting pressure on both parties for open borders. We should demand the same when it comes to the Drug War, police abuse and a whole host of other issues. We should be electing political leaders looking out for our interests, which isn't being done.

    Niggas talk about this shit like life was so great during segregation. Like black folks really had things so much better and actually having access to more was a detriment. Was there bad things that happened as a result of segregation? Yes. Nothing is all 100% good...but this mentality that removing segregation, legally, somehow stunted the black community is just stupid.

    The bold is something many don't want to admit to themselves. THey think simply removing white folks will erase alot of the social problems of the world? Nah. Someone in power will always do what they need to to maintain that power. They ain't just giving it up and being nice to folks to just because. Hell even white folks in power look down on lower class and poor white people. They do just enough to maintain and help push the idea that a "white man on any level is worth more than a black man" to make those idiots keep them in power.

    Low-key, segregation never left. But it definitely seems like we were more in tune back then. I was just telling someone how its wild how they organized a whole boycott of the bus system back then for over a year with nowhere close to the technology that we have now.

    1. It wasn't nationwide so it didn't require as much agreement as people think...
    2. People still overstate about how much agreement people were over that and many other things involving the Civil Rights movement. All black folks weren't all in. Just like today there were plenty of "Nah don't rock the boat" or "Just what the fuck will this accomplish" question asking black folks.
    True, but you still have to respect that they made shit change by making a plan and sticking to it. Niggas can't even boycott international businesses in our neighborhoods now that don't benefit us, let alone shit that a lot of people in a good-sized city like Montgomery, Alabama uses on a daily basis.

    That ain't even true. Plenty of people from other races try to get close to rich white people when they come up. I'm not really sure why so many people think the best way to help black people is to make up bullshit to attack black people.

    Anyway, I don't think black people would be better off if segregation didn't end. There was more unity back then, so you can make a case for integration setting us back in a way. However, people seem to forget what happened to successful black communities back then. White people could basically destroy good black communities out right and walk away without consequence. Even if blacks were stronger and more unified back then, we still weren't really in a position to build anything that lasted in this country.

    I don't think it's a dumb question, simply because the question makes you think. But I do think it's a weird-ass question, not that there is anything really wrong with weird questions.

    Like others have said, integration vs. segregation is largely irrelevant, i.e., if the goal is peace and prosperity (as it should be?). The real question is much deeper than segregation or integration.

    I've always believed peace and prosperity starts with individual freedom. Sounds abstract, but I still think it's an essential rule that many unfortunately either forget or disregard altogether.

    And I mean freedom from, not freedom to. Not just from government but from other larger forces, like even "the black community." If humans are prone to corruption, and power corrupts, then I don't see how anyone can believe that the evils (of white leaders) would just disappear if we segregated ourselves and had black leaders instead. Sounds way too optimistic to me. If anything, we need more leaders but less followers.

    But shouldn't we be allowed our own land and our own right to make mistakes ??

    What's wrong with that?

    Allowed?! if its yours you should take it back by force and protect it until you death!

    Didn't mean to say allowed as if we need permission, I meant we should have a right to our own just like anybody else, and even if it gets corrupted, we should still have the right to be corrupted if we so choose....
