The word is high-falutIN'
Part of opening post : I am trying to attract some (Afro-Americans) to some of my threads because I want them to respond TO SOME OF MY THREADS.
Here's a high-falutin' word for you :Tautology.
You say :I want black members to respond to my black-related threads.
Does this mean you're not interested in their views on your 'non-black-related' threads.
Maybe they can respond in Ebonics, a nice racially-based term.
