What about coon? Can I say coon? No? DAMN.
Just because your FAMILY EMIGRATED FROM ENGLAND DOESN'T MEAN THEIR ANCESTORS DIDN'T COME FROM AFRICA.  I don't want to be like you, because that would make me a horrilbe person, imo.  A hateful bigot, who thinks it's funny to belittle others to show how cool they are.  You are a bully, and bully's are nothing but scared people who have LOADS of insecurities that they hide by humiliating others.

Miariah, I want you to know that I've read your post. I'm not answering it because I think you're so full of self-hatred that it's not even worth acknowledging you, but I'm not ignoring you. (Well that, and I think it's so cute how you try to sing and dance and show off for the white people to show how you're not like 'the rest of us', when you really are, and they know it, but they're not telling you that they know because they like to watch you shuck and jive. Just like I do.)
No, see, i don't like prejudice of any kind.  And if you want to wave, and sing and dance saying you hate white people for making black people slaves, then you must hate yourself, and your ancestors, because not only did they sell their own people to the white people, they also had slaves themselves.  I don't do anything to impress anyone.  If they don't like me for me, f*ck em.  But I don't get all self righteous over something as stupid as the color of a persons skin.

So, when the Egyptians enslaved the Jews to build their pyramids and temples, that's different than the white people enslaving others, because it happened to your ancestors?  That doesn't sound too ignorant. ::)

That never happened to my ancestors, my precious little wannabe. My family is Afro-British on my mother's side, Caribbean on my father's side. When you're looking up 'black people in rock music', be sure to look up 'free blacks in America' as well. *pats mariah on the head*
But where did the black people come from?  Africa.  Just because they're Afro-British, ya know, Afro being from Africa, my funny little wanna be, they all originated from Africa.  An African civilization having slaves far far far before white people ever did.  So, I fail to see where you can't like white people because they 'stole' your ancestors from their homes, when quite possibly your ancestors did it first.

*stares at your whole post* Good God, someone is going to have to translate that for me - I don't speak Clueless F*cker. Anybody?

Don't you think our individual prejudice is comparable?

Unless you can tell me about how your fellow gays were kidnapped from Gayland and ripped from their families, or made to eat in gay restaurants and drink from gay water fountains, or were forced to wear pink triangles on their clothes or forced into labor or denied their right to speak their gay language, then no, I DON'T find them comparable. The gay rights movement has legitimate history, struggle, and demand for rights - and like any other minority, has been f*cked over by the gub'mint for decades now. Stop piggybacking off the civil rights movement to make your point. Our families didn't struggle just so you could make a point on a f*cking message board.

You're accusing me of saying 'stupid sh**' but not critiquing my arguement...just critiquing me as a person

That's because your argument is stupid, and the fact that you're a gay male doesn't give you any more insight into what it is to be black as any other clueless, whiny little white boy drowning in his own white privilege but refusing to acknowledge it.

what i find offensive

Who gives a f*ck WHAT you find offensive?

That's my last post to you, seeing that I think you're completely hopeless. This is your cue to accuse me of being homophobic, cry about how you were beat up for being gay, and tell us how your best friend is black. "My sister's boyfriend is African!" AHHHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!

Being Black, White and Puerto Rican

Honey, we know. You've gone out of your way to jump up and down and wave your arms and tell us all that you're not like the rest of us "regular" Negroes.

Should I pick and choose what aspects from my ancestors I want to show?  Like how I enjoy flautas and black eyed peas?  How my dad loves Alice Cooper while my mom loves Aretha and Nina Simone?

I hate to break this to you, but I love Alice AND Aretha, and I'm as black as Richard Roundtree in "Shaft in Africa".
Well I'm so happy for you.  If they were all like you, I wouldn't want to be like them 'regular negroes.'

I've always had problems with the phrase "color blind" when it comes to race and interracial relationship. I get the idea, but the wording seems to suggest that there's something wrong with whatever race you're talking about or dating, you're just being "blind" to it to enjoy that person. I think you SHOULD see race, just don't see it as something bad or awful. its a part of who you are or who the person is, so why pretend you don't see it? Just put it all into perspective. Every race has good and bad in their history, its nothing to be proud or ashamed of, it simply is and should be accepted. Just saying.
Well, I'm a skittles kind of girl.  I dont' care what race you are, as long as you're good and stay faithful to me, that's all that should matter.  I'm not going to pick and choose who I fall in love with by the color of their skin.  

No one's saying you should, I don't think. Its just when that phrase pops up when someone's in an interracial relationship, it seems to be like saying "I normally have problems/don't like/negative feelings with black people (for instance), I'm just gonna turn a blind eye to those emotions for you." Which...solves nothing in the long run. Race shouldn't matter when choosing someone, true, but it WILL matter as far as getting to know someone that you choose. And again that's not a bad thing, just something that shouldn't be ignored or swept under the rug.
I understand what you're saying, but it seems that a lot of people on here see an interracial relationship as a bad thing, and as a child of an interracial couple it kinda hurts that people still feel this way.

"Colorblind" is a nice way of saying "I don't want to learn anything about you that makes me have to learn about, respect and acknowledge our differences, so let's just pretend they don't exist, okay?"
Being Black, White and Puerto Rican, you have to learn alot about my differences to get with me.  Should I pick and choose what aspects from my ancestors I want to show?  Like how I enjoy flautas and black eyed peas?  How my dad loves Alice Cooper while my mom loves Aretha and Nina Simone?

EDIT:I think you should focus on what you have in common more than what sets you apart.  Isn't love the union of two kindred spirits becoming one?  That's how I view it.

To Chime in on this topic, nothing is set in stone. I mean, how long did Vision and Scarlet Witch stayed married? How about Quicksliver and Luna? Does anyone remember Bruce Banner and Betty Ross? I say as long as Joe Q is the Editor and Chief of A Tribe Called Marvel, the marriage between BP and Storm will have the full support. For now, let's enjoy it and not try to dwell too far into the future.

I read in a recent WIZARD, that "cracks" are going to appear in the marriage of Black Bolt and Medusa during the "Silent War". At the CBR, there was a thread discussing Marvel marriages and why some of them are viewed with disfavor from some fans. I suggested that while the Storm/Panther marriage seems to catch flak from almost every quarter, no one seems to be overly-concerned with the incestuous marriage of Black Bolt to Medusa. A poster there basically told me that "Inhuman" incest is not to be compared with "human" incest  :D Because Medusa and Black Bolt were seen as being "inhuman", their incestuous relationship was overlooked. I replied that Black Bolt and Medusa look enough like normal humans to BE normal humans. The poster didn't seem to be overly impressed by that fact and then proceeded to tell me that the marriage of Black Bolt and Medusa has lasted a long time and puts most other Marvel marriages to shame.

I replied that the Panther's and Storm's marriage was still a "new thing" and given time, it could be something special in the Marvel universe. Now, it seems that the Marvel marriage that "puts other Marvel marriages to shame", is in for a rough time ahead. What a shame  ;)

It would be funny if they broke up cause Black Bolt keeps hogging the phone...

Or, because Medusa doesn't like it when Black Bolt whispers "sweet nothings" into her ear. Everytime he whispers, "I love you", it's like a nuclear holocaust happening between her ears.

"...And he has bad breath!"

Ha!  I love it!

Being Black with very strong African and Latin cultural roots and also being a lifelong adherent of the martial arts,I tried to purchase this mini,but my local comics shop kept telling me that they were sold out.I asked if they were getting more,but they told me that they probably weren't becasue the series isn't selling well and that the story is lame.That's a quote."The story is lame."

Is the story lame?
It's a very good read.  Very feminist, and more in touch with how a real woman would be portrayed if there were actual super heroes.  It's getting flack from many men, because it doesn't ooze sexuality.  Her breasts and butt aren't all in your face.  Her costume isn't overtly sexual, and she kicks a LOT of male butt.

And I was just stating a fact of the book.  I thought I saw someone write that over in the 'Real black love' thread, asking why she had to be paired up with Daredevil instead of a Puerto Rican love interest.  She isn't attracted to Matt Murdock, she has respect for him.  She stood up to her former FBI director who fired her because she believed in what Matt was doing in his neighborhood.  

But on the topic of interracial romances, I see things a little differently.  I dont' care who someone is romantically linked to, as long as it is written well.  If you love someone for who they are, the color of one's skin should never be a issue, love should be color blind.  Ask my parents who have been married for almost 30 years, and have had personal and social issues caused by this, but have weathered the storm beautifully.  They are more in love today than they were 28 years ago.

Okay, just to give a quick fact, Daredevil isn't a love interest for White Tiger.  The Daredevil in the White Tiger mini is, in fact, Iron Fist, and she calls him Tio on several occasions.  Tio is Spanish word for Uncle.  Danny Rand is a very close member of her family, and has known her since she was a small child.  I really wish people would stop saying that he's a love interest for her.

Not exactly.  Every branch is slightly different caused from different mutations.  Like those of Oriental descent all have different features caused from cross breeding for years caused them to have very similar features.  It explains it a little better in Uncanny 253.  She's lying unconscious in a hospital, and the people are trying to figure out her.  The one doctor goes onto describe her as "Brown skin.  But her features don't fit any conventional classification.  Not negroid or caucasian or oriental--yet, somehow, an amalgam of the rarest elements of them all.  White hair, blue eyes--"  While it doesn't take away from her being black, it just elaborates on the theory that the first man came from Africa is all, and Ororo is a direct descendant of said man.
I get your point, but doesn't that seem a bit off to you? It's not just a theory that the original man did come from Africa, but it seems like they need to say, "Well, he was from Africa, but he wasn't an African. He was some kind of multi-racial mocha-man." But he wasn't, he was Black. And all these White people, and asian people are all descended from Black people, and all their features are mutated, cross-bred and adapted versions of Black features.

I can buy Storm having untypical features because she's a mutant, but to have those features because she's descended from some non-Black original African human race? Meh. I don't see why they can't just say, "She's a mutant, she looks different."

I Agree with Wize Son, Why is it so Hard for them just to say that Blacks In compass EVERYONE's Features and be done with it.

It is true that black people have the most varied features on the planet and it's not Offensive at all. the fact that Storm encompasses that should be nothing more then her African Origens

And did you use negroid?....no one has used Negroid since the 50s,not even Scientists >.<

It sounds like some kind of Robot
I was just quoting from the book that I referenced.  That's literally what the doctor in the issue said.  Plus, I know Storm is black, but even we have different features that were mutated through inbreeding way back when.  Simple genetics.  And if you believe the bible we all came from Noah and his descendants after the great flood, which last I checked, I thought they were jewish.

Storm's ancestors are supposed to be from the very first proto humans on earth,
Isn't everyone descended from the very first proto humans on Earth? I just mean, humanity started in one place (Africa) and spread from there, so everyone, from Storm to Everett Ross, has that ancestry. It's more accurate to say that caucasian, asian, indian and Native American features are all just variations on African features.

Storm's mutant powers is to have white features!

/ducks
While not entirely true, your statement does have merit.  Storm's ancestors are supposed to be from the very first proto humans on earth, and therefore her features are that of all races on earth.  White, black, asian etc.  Claremont was setting her up to become the Earth goddess she so often referred to in her speech patterns.
