Meeting new people
We would like you to tell your Asian Male and/or your Black female friends about the site, would you help us find cool people who would support interracial interaction? Please explain.
How do you feel about having a complete Egotistical Wise Ass as a site Creator/Administrator??? ;)
To each his own but I won't have a problem unless there is a legitimate reason to.
HEY' I'M V, THE CREATOR OF THIS SITE, I AM NOT A BOT OR LIKE TOM OFF OF MYSPACE... I AM A LIVING HUMAN BEING...ANYWAYS, I AM GOING TO GIVE YOU "THE SPEECH" ANYWAYS...LOL
Welcome to the site, by site statistics and such, we have determined that the most active members hit the Audio/Video Chatroom. The second draw to our site is creating and replying to hundreds of forum discussions we have here. The real test to our site is the family and friends we create and actually go out and have a good time with, so it’s best to be part of BWAM organized events. You can blog here, and we have status changes which are like FB, but we don’t just “click like” on FB, we go out and meet one another.
Right now, it’s $12 A YEAR to be a member if you are over 21. If you are under 21, it’s $6. If money is tight, we have a waiver option if we find you to be highly active...that is to promote the site and bring 12 paying members here a year that tell us that You referred them to us. You have two weeks (give or take) to decide to stay or go...so the choices are..to real active participant OR I am booting youl.
I expect greatness from you, just be yourself and express it, and we're good. THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING TO DO HERE. Welcome again, Have a good time! Welcome new and "friend" old people alike - don't slouch here- go on everyone's page and write on their walls! :) IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU TRY THE CHATROOM OUT AND SURVIVE THE PROCESS! GET IT DONE EARLY! That will either prove you can handle the risks and gift of socializing.
Remember, we are stronger than just friends and family...we are a close knit movement.
And...if you have any questions or if you feel like cussing someone out because you need it out your system... my inbox is always open to you.
***To support, encourage, & promote interaction between Asian Men & Black Women.
***To be tolerant of all views of all members on this site.m (Suffering and disagreements are part of life people.)
***Respect all religious, spiritual, and agnostic views of it's members.
***To be more accepting than exclusive, yet hold the right to remove those that harm others.
*Freedom of speech, thought, and heart are placed highly...as if they are based on the foundation of truth and don't injure others (in the defined form of physical, proprietorial, or financial harm). Debate, heated or otherwise are allowed, for it is the persons involved that must deal with the emotional or mental "suffering," if any.
****P.S. Learn how to take a joke, and identify the intent of the people which you are talking to. You are responsible for yourself, your own responses, reactions, and giving power to yourself and others over you. Be accountable, don't play victim all the time. These are still people, some people are up front, others hide behind their profiles. Don't make personal issues site issues, if you take off your clothes on skype or in real life and bicker about it on Bwamu...guess what, it's a personal issue. Grow up.
***All that is needed for membership is the support of the movement, and active participation by all!
