Welcome to the Black Culture Thread, where everything from Little Caesars to 'what's hot on the streets' is up for debate. This community is focused on the discussion and experience of daily life for minorities. GAF is a rather large forum, and these unique experiences can get lost in the noise. But while this thread was created to ensure certain topics relevant to the black community could be discussed reasonably, this isn't a "Blacks Only" spot by any means. Any and all are free to hop in, regardless of skin color, ethnicity and walk of life. Consider it open mic: all are welcome to keep it real. It's a community thread, so it can be intimidating for newcomers to jump in considering all the in-jokes and general cadence of the thread. If you are unfamiliar with anything, just ask. We are always looking for more decent folks to bring into the family.
Enjoy your stay. Don't track dirt all over the good carpet and don't summon no demons.
P.S. Whataboutism is not welcome. He-was-no-angel ism is not welcome. And if you can't take a joke or having your views challenged, well...
I recognize like, three names on this.
First time here? Long time lurker, first time poster?
