    Why do you use feminine avatars mostly? It's not related to your ethnicity I guess. Alwas wanted to ask you that. I find it unique and quite charming.

    What impact does nation of islam has on your community? Did its impact slowly wanish with the end of the freedom strugle?

    I've noticed that afro families are closely bonded (though not I yours). Is this mostly correct? Does this have anything to do with african cultural heritage being passed down? Or has slavery tightened these bonds? Etc?

    I've also noticed that afros are more religious. Again is this mostly true?

    It has no impact that I'm aware of. I consider the whole world my family, and seeing as most sects of said family like to play dress-up and have different opinions on a subjective subject, its best to remain out of the mosh pit.

    I've noticed that afro families are closely bonded (though not I yours). Is this mostly correct? Does this have anything to do with african cultural heritage being passed down? Or has slavery tightened these bonds? Etc?
    The idea of family or strength in numbers is a thing that most races adhere to, because all of them are human. Afro families are taught the value of sticking together as soon as you can walk, and the hierarchy of authority is embedded in you with firm lessons. Slavery only made such ties stronger, because it weeded out the less clever and more proud of the "slaves."

    I've also noticed that afros are more religious. Again is this mostly true?
    Yes. We identify with the righteous laws and how the universe works, how prayer and karma are essential to navigating your way through life. Keywords you hear as a youth are "strong, triflin'(no morals)" Either you adhere to the rules or you ignore them and no one wants to deal with ya triflin' ass xD

    I am a quiet provocateur, and I do so about 6 hours a day for 5 days. Stunting is a habit.

    Do your white friends ask you to speak on behalf of all the black people in the world and/or absolve them [the white friends] of their unintended racism?

    LOL. I feel like I'm from another planet and ahead of my time, so its a bit stifling, white man or not.

    No. The friends that I have been fortunate to know and continue to know are only as racist as I am, and have no intention of absolving anything for anyone who gets mad about stereotypes, while adhering to them like it was God's will.
