If you don't already know the story you have been living under a rock. However, if you don't here is the bite sized version. A white reader featured on curly nikki, some black readers raise hell saying she should never have been featured and the piece was a mockery, ebony mag writer says #naturalhair spaces should be kept free of white people, 1 BGLH writer essentially agrees explaining why exclusivity is not racism, I as another BGLH writer disagree and say all people should be welcome because the principle of excluding a race is exactly what apartheid supports.
On BGLH the vocal majority was and is clearly for exclusion. I dance to the beat of my own drum and there is a small yet clear voice who do agree with me that we should not exclude anyone. Having the loudest voice does not mean it is the most applicable, most intelligent or makes the most sense. It just means x number of people agree with you while y either disagree or have no opinion either way.
Some regular cross readers have left many comments on my own blog that I have chosen not to publish, not because they are not publication worthy but because they are being left on posts that have nothing to do with the subject. I am therefore creating this post for the purpose of those who feel that they want to comment on the issue.
Honestly in my view, this issue has been beaten to a pulp! Why are we subscribing to the Dubya mentality of, 'You are either with us or against us?' The truth is much more genteel.... Everyone is entitled to their opinion. We can agree to disagree.
So if you have something to say, say it, if you are bored already, go check out some older posts :)
