|how will a POC board serve differently than what we have now? It is a place to bitch and moan about everyone not your color? Is it a place to talk about issues entirely exclusive to POC? Is there such a thing?
Not picking on the person who asked this, just wanted to answer.
I don't get what you don't get. Being of color is something that makes a parent and their child different than other parents and children. The problems/ issues one runs into in one's life when one is different in any way are easier and more logical to be discussed with people who have that same difference.
Of course there is such a thing as issues exclusive to a person who is of color that a person who is not of color does not have to deal with nor relate to.
If the Mamas of color want a forum then why would anyone deny it to them?
I remember a poll about a children with disabilities forum. It was only asked to and answered by the people who it would be used by (parents of said children). I answered it too, because DH is disabled. It was decided, if I recall corectly that they would not have a forum for that but that those parents wanting such a forum might try ssrting a "finding your tribe" thread to see who was interested in such a forum.
What I was getting at is that noone asked the parents with kids without disabilities if the forum should be opened for those who would use it........
I am so sad that people can't get along.........
