I am not Muslim, but I am cool with Muslims. I admire the discipline in cutting out alcohol as well as other vices. I like soju too much to be Muslim. heheh. As far as Israel goes, I don't understand why sephardic (ethiopian) jews are discriminated against, when they are the only jews in israel left that are one of the original 12 of Abraham. kind of strange to me, but not my business.
Thta's the spirit. More Americans need to learn how to say, "not my business". The world would be a much better place.

But the problem in israel is good old fashion white racism: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Nations_G... . It is not about religion at all. It is about white supremacy.

As an Afro-American expat currently living in an Asian majority country, I can safely say that Asian hate blacks. Sometimes, I still have locals asking me if my home back in ''Africa'' was a mudhut. If anything they probably hate us more than whites do. There are lot of white women willing to date a brotha but Asian women treat us like we're all potential rapists. That say a lot, really.
You are obviously an idiot, although I have never been to Singapore. I do know it is ONLY a small island that once was a British colony or something like that. Therefore it is safe to say that most of them if not al of them have been thoroughly brainwashed by British racism and zionism. I do know that they look up to the British white man. So Singapore cannot be taken as representative of even a small part of Asia.

Even so, what I do know about that part of Asia leads me to doubt your claim, at least to some extent. Singapore hosts a lot of Africans from Africa, although probably not enough to affect the popular ignorance about African culture and society. So you probably ought not be offended when they express their ignorance. Al they know is what the white man has told them. But their curiosity shows their lack of innate racism as we see from whites. Whites are not curious. They do not ask about mud huts. Instead, they spread lies about mud huts. Know the difference.

Asia for Malaysia, next door, I know for a fact that His Excellency Comrade Bob Mugabe spends his vacations there for a reason. At a time when al English speaking countries and blockading Zimbabwe, Malaysia has refused to do so. Maybe that is because it is majority Muslim. I do not know. But, I do express appreciation to the Malay people for offering us hospitality.

Furthermore, Malays are the majority in the Philipines. And it is indisputable the Filipinos and Africans get along very, very well. Indeed, the Philipines as a black indigenous population. And most Filipinos are mixed with blacks. In other words, the Malay people are not racists. They easily mix with Africans and intermarry with us without so much as a second thought.

Furthermore, the people of Southeast Asia are mostly of Malay extraction. Vietnamese comes from the Malay culture. I am sure they are also mixed with Chinese, Indians and other Asians. But my purpose here is to lead up to Cambodia.

The people of Cambodia call themselves Khmers. Khmers means Black People, although they are mostly medium brown to light brown in complexion. This is due to the African connection to that part of Asia which by definition would include Singapore. Singapore is just one of literally tens of thousands of islands that stretch from Africa to India and Southeast Asia. In prehistoric time, people would walk from Africa to Asia and vice versa. So, all of the Asian peoples along that route have African blood. India is separated by a mountain range between north and south. Therefore, the people who live to the north have close ties to Europe and Eurasia. But the people to the south have close ties to Africa.

Dude, get off your ignorant and lazt butt and go learn something about Asia and Africa, take two aspirins and call me in the morning.

What you say is very true. Thousands of young South Korean women have been trafficked into countries like American and Australia as sex slaves. The ones who abduct these women and then force them into this particular line of work are none other than their own countrymen. Funny how the Korean-American community never condemns those ruthless Korean pimps but is instead happy to go on about ‘’black crime’’.
Simple. "Black crime" is what Marion Barry is insciting when he started this crap in the first place. And i think he is doingit on purpose. And I strongly suspect that you are doing it on purpose. I seriously do not believe that you live n Asia. ou are liar to say the least.

I left San Diego becase of parking tickets. They had this Uncle police officwer who literally followed me around to give me tickets evcery time I stopped. True story. The tickets were $2 a pop. But if you forget to pay it on time, it immediately jumped to $200 a pop. Needless to say, I had so many I could not possibly rmemeber to pay them all on time. So they would came and tthrew in jail for the fir time in my life. Then it dawned on me: these fools and harassing me becaue tey think I will put up with any fool thing to live in high coxst of livng San Diego among who those racist red necks. I caght the next greyhound out and have not been back since. I forgot to pay aymore parking tickets and will ever pay them.
And this is why I hate KKKlinton so much. As soon as he became president e put in a system tat if ypu do not pay your tickets in one state, you cannot get a driver's license in another state. That is when I first started to hate all Dumycrats because I could see the fascism behind that system. Now, we all live under a feminazi government and think we ave something to be proud of. This is insanity.

PARKING TICKETS?!!

Are you KIDDING me?!!!!

You let your logic de-evolve into all of this over unpaid PARKING TICKETS?!! How come you didn't just pay your tickets like everyone else? I had parking tickets and paid mine. How come you couldn't take care of your own responsibility? Instead you hop your sorry butt onto a Greyhound Bus and leave town, LOL. You sound ridiculous. So now you hate Democrats because of your own folly?

You missed my point. Thuis cop did nothing other than follow me around for three whole months and give me parking tickets. You are talking about 2-300 parking tickets at $200 apiece. It was not funny. And even now I cannot believe that the powers that be would stoop so low. But they did.

But now I am a lot tougher, meaner and leaner. I do not allow that kind of scum get to me so easily. I was just a kid who got used. That's all.

my point was, you people are not great just because you forgave someone who killed your dads!! if any people are great for forgiving its deffinitely blk american people.

you are not helpless. if you feel helpless here then go back to where you came from because no one forced you to come here and no one is forcing your to stay. korea is a real place!!

we are a great people who lost much, much more then our heritage! yet we stand and are not crying because of our hardships and struggles. so stop crying and learn to speak english....and hire security guards for your businesses, or whatever.

My kids have never been to Hawaii. But we were in Calfronia at the time of the riots. I am certain that they riots help to break up my marriage. In fact, I am certain that main reason behind the riots was to break up my marriage. The riots were directed against my family personally. At least, I take it personal. These dogs do not realize that human beings are being hurt with by their stupid racism.
The thing about it, they cannot even notice that my fami;ly is hald Asian. That is just how stupid they are. My kids usually have sun tans. So one would really have to take a close look to realize they are whAt they call "IR". And when they see me, they see that I am also "mixed". So, they are just to dumb to put the pieces together. So, here I am adverising it just to let themknow that human beings are involved. We have been victimized by their racism.
It is personal. But it is not just me. There are literally thousands in California, in Hawaii and all across the country who are part Asian, usually at least half Asian. And in Asia, especially in Korea, there are tens of thousands who are part African. At that time, it was gainst American law for those wives to acompany their husbands back to America. Many had children or were preganat and about to have children. These kids are scattered all over Asia, in Vietnam, In Korea, in Japan, in the Philipines. Often in the Phili[pimnes, the fathers will settle there to be with their families. This also happens a lot in Japan. There is a rather large community of African ftahers in and around Tokyo and all across Japan, even and in Taiwan: http://www.blacktokyo.com/#sthash.WNvjIzev.dp... . They have good jobs and businesses. Nobody ever riots and burn down their stores or rape their wives and daughters.

You're holding your own by simply stating the truth. Some people have a vested interest in keeping blacks all over the world as the underclass. In Africa it's for the resources - animal, mineral and human. In the Americas they want us to remain consumers only. Some of us have a, self-hating and self-defeating attitude as evidenced here. It's about time black capital formation become part of the American competitive landscape.
of course. this is the trend against melanated people the world over. im focusing on my community and have decided to go to war against the status quo.

every chance i get i tell blk american people the same things i posted that you responded to.

its either come together and control our economics or die off....

i guessblk americans don't realize that affirmative action (which benefitted white women more then anyone else) is no longer legal in a lot of states. and there is no use expecting all these foriegners in our hoods to hire us (why would you want to work for them anyways?) our employment gripe is with this government and these large corporations. these foriegners owe us NOTHING.

i keep telling blk folk where i live that if we want to survive we'd better take over our economics.

Well, go ask your half white president to ask his 100% white zioniost bosses to give you some "capitalist formation". If you ask a Korean, he will admit that his government in Korea help their citizens to start new businesses. But I bet your half white presaident won't do it for you.
As for me, I prefer socialism, like China, like Vietnam, like Japan, like Korea, north and south. That way, I can ask my friends in Zimbabwe to help me to start a business because they are socilaists like me. But you? You go ask half white Obama and see what you get.
look mr toilet tissue, what fool would exspect a man in political office to help him become financially and economically independent? you are another sub-human afraid you are going to loose the tons of money that blk people blindly provide for you by buying up your inferior services and products.

A lot of Korean marriages were broken up because of financial hardship from the riots as well. Its sad because for many Korean men, their entire existence of their life is based upon making money for the family, so when their stores burned down, many experienced similiar marriage hardships like yours. But I did not know there were other victims targeted for their race other than Korean/Asian. Sorry to hear you were dragged down with "Asians" in this. You might as well have joined the Korean Americans without stores who took up arms to defend Korean businesses. You would have most certainly been welcome.
nobody cares about your "hardships." your not the only one who suffered because of the riots and koreans, chinese, etc.. people opporate as VAMPIRES in the blk communities across the US. you have no right to even complain about what we do to you. go to your own countries and open up businesses if you have such a problem with us americans, if you are in fact, asian to began with.

im trying to figure out how asian suffering is some how more important then the sufferings of non-asians.

and you can sit here and talk about "arming" yourselves. the gangs in LA are armed to the teeth.

And do not tell these fools to start black banks. They are too stupid to do that. We have black owned banks and have had them since slavery. But that does not solve any problems. As soon as the banks become propfitable, they sell out to zionists. This is why I have proposed a Convention People's Party Pan-Africanist Credit Union. But I am too busy to spend a lot of time doing all the work myself without pay. But a credit union is owned by the members. This mean that the Uncle Tom managers cannot sell it without approval from the community. You cannot do that with a bank. But these dogs are too stupid to know the difference.
we have MANY banks that opperate in the black and have not sold out to anyone. a fool can't open a bank in the first place you ole dress wearing undercover homo, child raping muslim!!

There's no truth there that I see.
All it is is talk and more talk about capital and what we need to do. This conversation has been going on for more than 40 years, yet we still have people on the outside looking in, because they are unwilling to conceive of the present time. Not everyone is interested in keeping us down all over the world. I think some black people like to feel that everyone hates us. It how many of us have been conditioned to feel. That feeling keeps many in their place. This is part of that self-defeating attitude you mentioned. It's nice to talk about black capital formation, but you can't get too many black people to invest in anything. I actually know of families who inherited generous amounts -- nearly 7 figures from the sale of their family's homes only to squander it all on cars, expensive hotel rooms, and other BS. They couldn't think to reinvest the $$ into other properties or any business. That kind of thinking needs to change.
you are a FOOL and know NOTHING of your american history. im doubting that you are Blamerican in the first place.

everyone understands race and economics but a plantation creation such as yourself could never be taught such a concept.

i know of blk folk who have done similar silly things and i know of blk folk who invested funds, opened businesses and created all kinds of avenues for the economic prosperity of themselves and others in the community. im a part of organizations that are geared towards the economic growth of our blk community through various means...including investments.
