    Everything tastes better if it's cooked and seasoned correctly.

    Anonymously Ask A Black Person
    Focus group research. I like the idea, provided the people answering the questions are being candid.

    As a black republican (or Republican who is an American who happens to also be black, which ever is politically correct and doesn't give the false impression my patriotism is with Ghana) it frustrates me to see the clumsy, misdirected and sometimes offensive efforts by the GOP in the outreach efforts to black voters. They start out making their minds up on what black voters care about most often based on totally false notions. Then they find a handful of black conservatives who have zero credibility with anybody black to be the voices and faces of the GOP to black voters. My guess is they're being paid to say what GOP insiders want them to say and with enough money offered even I would make asinine statements. I've been begging a friend of mine who works with the local GOP organization to get me hired to tell them the truth but a big part of party politics these days, especially with the GOP, is only certain people are allowed to think for themselves and speak their minds. Everybody else has to agree with the group-think or be labeled a RINO.

    Free insights:

    1. Obamacare isn't worse than slavery. If anybody thinks institutionalized daily rape, beatings, forced separation from family to never see them again either as punishment or financial gain, amputations with no anesthesia as a form of punishment, forced to toil in the hot sun all day from sun up to sundown often 7 days a week and understandably drastically lower life expectancies is a better quality of life than what we've seen because of the Affordable Care Act is either very dumb, thinks the public is very dumb or got a huge check from somebody to say this.

    2. There's nothing wrong, unpatriotic or racist about the National Holocaust Museum, celebrating Greek Week or Oktoberfest, having a section of town that celebrates America's French colonial heritage called the French Quarter, China Town, Little Italy, St. Patrick's Day celebrations or an exclusive national society of women who trace their ancestry to Mayflower pilgrims called The Daughters of the Mayflower. In fact, Americans of all races and heritages should honor and celebrate these groups. If you isolate just one of these groups and refuse to acknowledge their unique history and contributions to America or express offense caused by their very existence, people in that group will think you have something against them and will support efforts to marginalize your influence even against their own values.

    3. Most blacks in America are ideologically conservative (however, this is rapidly changing with younger people.) What causes these conservatives to vote against their own values is the perception that the conservatives political culture despises them.

    Same with Hispanics, maybe even more so.

    Excellent post, btw.

    The site seems quite harmless. I'll bet that the question answerers google many of the questions before replying. That's what I did.

    Google told me that ashy skin is the same thing as chalky skin for Caucasians. More likely to occur when humidity levels are low.

    I believe that that is the answer that I would have received from the OP's site.

    I never did get the fried chicken thing. Other than hippie vegan types, who the hell doesn't love fried chicken?

    Good to see someone else with some understanding of the history of the term.

    Yeah, it's Italian in etymology, and referred to the areas were Jews were forced to live - it essentially refers to forced segregation.

    From there, it's easy to follow the term's application to segregated areas of pre-civil rights American black citizens.

    It's similar to the way 'diaspora' also originally referred to Jews (living in a foreign land), but now has found it's way as reference to other groups a well. (ex: Chicago's large Polonia community)
