    Were Jheri Curls still a fad, I might have. LOL

    The next time you guys are up this way or around the Dallas area, take him through Oaklawn. There's loads to do and lots to explore. He'll have a blast! Plus, it's nestled within a cozy, historical community. https://neighborhoods.dmagazine.com/dallas/central-dallas/oak-lawn/

    That instantly made me think of this:

    Case in point, where is the similar drama in this thread? It's nonexistent. What you've said is true, but if a person is coming to this forum with good intentions of trying to find others with whom they share commonalities, they shouldn't have to endure undergoing the 3rd degree by the usual suspects. It's typically the same handful perpetrators in each case, who seek out and jump into certain threads with the sole intent of derailing it for whatever nefarious reason. I've seen it happen here time and time again.

    You better keep that whole thing about the natural hair community on the low low as well. Otherwise, they'll think we're going to rise up against them with hair picks and a jar of coconut oil. Although, a lot of mischief can be had from the coconut oil alone! Oops, did I just tell them? Oh well, they were bound to find out anyway!

    There is a thread of commonality that's known and shared among different black cultures and ethnic groups. There's no harm in saying that, or even seeking it out if one so chooses. I'm just going to go ahead and say it, since people are tiptoeing around it - You have a lot of racist bigots in this forum, who project their own misguided hatred onto others, by eagerly latching on to posts such as this one and purposely misconstruing the OPs words. The original intent of the OP gets twisted and turned into some warped version of itself, until the entire meaning behind it is lost in a melee of maliciousness, false accusations, and cries of intolerance. "How dare they seek out other [insert racial, ethnic group here]?! I find this offensive, although it has nothing whatsoever to do with me! The audacity!" FFS - get a grip, get a life, and get over it.

    I was referring to my friends in Second Life, as I've had friends from all races, colors, creeds, ethnicities, sexualities, religions, and many nationalities. Though, that would also apply to my real life friends as well. I don't limit my interactions with people based on anything as specific as any of those things I've just listed. But I do understand the need for minority groups, within a majority setting, to seek out one another. As with the OP - I'm sure it boils down to more than just a matter of 'skin color', and she is looking for others with whom she shares a common solidarity. If people want to jump to conclusions, make racist assumptions, and get all offended by that (doesn't take much in this group), that's their prerogative, but then it becomes a matter of them projecting their on bigotry and intolerance onto others.

    Thanks, I'll have to check it out. I'm always on the lookout for new places to visit.

    That's why I said: "I'm sure that most other minority groups feel the same way." I've had friends from all walks of life and from various ethnicities, express their frustration at trying to find people with whom they share similar backgrounds and cultural experiences. It can be challenging at times.

    Yep, they're all over the place. You're very welcome!

    Yeah, considering we are a minority here, I'm sure that most other minority groups feel the same way. I posted this in another thread, but check out some of the black fraternities and sororities, you'll find a lot of people there.

    I've also noticed that not much has changed around here. LOL

    Oh really? I can't wait to see it! I'm trying to decide if I should upgrade or not, I still like my current look.

    If you want to find black people these days in SL, the best place to look are in the Black "sororities" and "fraternities". That seems to be the thing now, with people joining different houses, to hook up and hang out, party, etc.
