Again, you respond with emotions.

55% of African American women are obese, 80% are obese or overweight
32% of white American women are obese 60% are obese or overweight.
10% of Asian American women are obese, 40% are obese or overweight

If you don't like facts, then maybe you should go back to bed.

This is going to make my name look bad but whatever its a forum....Just saying, you dont really see groups of white guys calling out girls halfway down the street saying things like " DAMMMMMM AY yo ma whats good!!?" or "hey mami where you goin!?" practically chasing girls down the street. White guys are usually too drunk or just cocky.

I leave my emotions at the door...but that doesnt mean im not going to be straight up when I talk to someone. The bar or where ever I go on the weekend has no place for emotions. If it leads to something more thats cool but im not expecting it.

The most im expecting is to get laid when Im trying to..obviously and have a good time regardless of the outcome.

And actually if we exclude south Asians such as Indians, then the Asian percentage is even lower.

Nice one source research. I could take this further, but I won't. I will add, if all I needed was one source in college and grad school, I'd have had waaaay more time to rest. Damn those professors.

There is a weird phenomenon of an obsession and bashing of Black women that is truly inexplicable.

Its as if the bashers gain a type of release in being able to degrade with full abandon like a violent video game of sorts. C-D is like a sanitized verson of Grand Theft Auto without the graphics but with all of the same rage and detachment from violence in the form of words.

Interesting...

It's actually two sources, it was edited immedietly after I posted.

Also, it is not about the number of sources, but the quality of the sources. These are sources from the US government. US department of Health and Human Service.

You don't think I can use the numbers from the US government, or is this just a knee jerk reaction because you don't like the results?

In today's society if you are not talked about or disliked I am convinced that you are not raising the bar or setting it. With that said, I welcome it all. Lol. Flattered but not offended. Tickled, but not offended. Entertained? But not offended.

I am in bed waiting on my sweetheart's flight to land. He has been in Hong Kong far too long. This thread has certainly entertained me as I wait for his arrival.

The US government eh? Is this the same govt that... Oh never mind. This conversation could take all night.

If you believe it, I hold it in high esteem. You like it, I love it. Good stuff.
