Was this a general statement or were you addressing a specific issue? What exactly as we suppose to be brainwashed about? Point me to the thread/article/statement/reference source in question so that Black men can digest the contents and judge for ourselves the merits of your pychological assessment of us.
    If you want to know what I said, they look at the entire quote in context to the question I was asked by Haymarket; not as one of TPD's lame Gotcha Games frequently directed at me.

    It's also worth nothing that she didn't tell me that she was going to back and edit it. She said that she "almost" went back and didn't. So correct quote is, in fact, "all black men".
    Give it a rest, TPD. You're making my cry. You sound exactly like a little 14-year-old I knew in Junior High. Maybe you're younger than I thought. And just precocious.

    I DON'T wear the so-called "trendy" clothes that many of my peers wore, i.e., Nikes shoes, Harringbon gold necklaces, FUBU attire.

    I DON'T speak "Ebonics"; I speak very much the way I type which is to say I try very hard to use proper English grammer.

    I DON'T believe I need to "keep up with the Jones" in order to get ahead.

    I DON'T eat Chitterlings, hogmales, fatback, ox tails or many of the other more common ethic foods my peers are known consume mostly because I just didn't grow up on it. My mother didn't prepare such meals often because my father who was Black BTW wouldn't eat it. It might even surprise most posters to learn that this Black man to this day does not use hot sauce on my foods be it chicken, eggs, collard greens or anything else. It's just not something I do, but I recognize it is a condiment closely associated with the African American dining ritual. Does that make me not Black enough? Or was I merely absent from Black Brainwashing 101?

    If this poll is an attempt to plug Black people into some socio-political scheme, I'd say you've missed the mark somewhat. While it might be true that a large segment of the African American population tend to vote Democrat, IMHO the reasons behind that are vast. But it starts with understanding how the Republican Party let African Americans down after Reconstruction.

    Under Pres. Lincoln, the Republican Party sought to unite the nation, but their mistake was pursuing a path of "separate, but equal". Once that didn't take hold, the "separate" part became the benchmark of the Party of which Conservative Democrats took that ball and ran with it! (KKK anyone?)

    Look, I'm willing to concede that a great many Black men and women are lazy, have been held sway by drugs and alcohol, and do subsist off of entitlement programs some from craddle to grave, but many White people would be surprised to learn that this IS also a problem among White Americans, too. So, if the argument is that Blacks tend to vote Democrat because we're promised "handouts" by liberal politicians, I'd say you really don't understand Black folks very well.

    It's not a matter of promises; it's a matter of trust. And for the most part, the Republican Party hasn't done much to gain the trust of the African American people. But we can take that matter up in another thread along with how Reconstruction let the Black man down after seeming so promising initially. But this brainwashing thing among Blacks...c'mon...really?
    *Sigh* First, I have retracted my use of the word brainwashing and replaced it with conditioning. That's a much better fit. I don't want to argue with you, I really don't. But may I point out several things in your post?

    Your first bolded sentence above? I'd ask you to ask that question of your fellow African-Americans. That sounds like a very strange thing to say...never heard a white person say that in my life. I suspect there's a whole interesting story behind that question.

    Your second bolded sentence above: What a horrible and racist thing to say. Not really. You are pointing out what you see as reality. The KKK was begun by "Conservative Democrats." Interesting use of the word "conservative." Do you mean to say these Conservative Democrats changed into Republicans? Democrats were behind the KKK. Their first targets were black and white Republicans. Who knew?

    I included this post here because apdst has shared with us that he is black also, as is Objective Voice, as is BlackDog. There's is the perspective I'm most interested in. Not those who would cry like little babies and call me a racist.

If that's what you think being "enslaved" is, you need to take a history lesson. Welfare is available in almost all advanced western economy, people don't call those who need it "enslaved". And who marginalise them? The people who put out the message that they are lazy, scheming, brainwashed addicts.

    You want to talk about brainwashed, where did the "hand out not hand up" come from? The conservative establishment does a good job of keeping its flock in tune with the conservative mentra.
    I don't want to talk about brainwashed. I have already retracted that for a better word that was suggested: conditioned. If you want to deny that many blacks are conditioned to believe they are getting the short end of the stick? I don't know what to tell you.

    Well, I have to say that I didn't know you were black. But you probably don't know that I'm green, either. Your post is interesting in conjunction with OV's statement wondering if he's black enough. I thought that was so odd.

    Re: Are all black men brainwashed?

    I think my favorite part about this thread is all you have to do is read it and you get your answers.

    First I think its weird to even wonder if any race is more brainwashed/conditioned or whatever you want to call it than another race. Ive seen nothing in REAL LIFE to ever make me believe that, its silly.

    secondly many of the posters in this thread have proven beyond a doubt that multiple races are brainwashed/conditioned to think in certain ways thats pure nonsense. But they dont make up the majority of that race of course they just exist everywhere, just like racists, idiots, bigots, and assholes.

    Its funny, ignorance know no color, nor favors any color, bad apples are everywhere.

    When white people vote in a 92% block we can discuss that until then lets stick to the group that does just that.

    Strong voting patterns is not necessarily an indication of brain washing.

    It does mean this group shares a lot of things politically, but this may or may not be the result of brain washing.

    When 92% of any group does the exact same thing it is something to wonder about.

    Not really, the reasons for this are pretty well understood already, its been explained several times in this thread, but some here don't want to hear it.
