I just don't know of any blacks, personally, that has any "lust for revenge". I know quite a few who long to be understood by their fellow citizens and not be constantly subjected to rhetoric which makes only one side out to be the bad guys! It took whites and blacks to make this mess and I'm sorry Prep, but it was all initiated by whites. No matter how you look at race in this country or from whichever perspective you view it from "misguided and zealous whites started it" all. That's the big elephant in the room that whites just refuse to see or maybe they just want to ignore it. Now blacks try to protect themselves from what has clearly been an offensive toward them. Not revenge! Defense! With the help of some very beautiful white people I might add. We are not doing no more than whites would do, except maybe some whites just don't like being on the wrong side morally speaking! The majority of blacks do not hold a grudge for slavery, but the majority of blacks do get defensive, when we feel our civil rights are being threatened. Wouldn't you do the same if you felt your rights were being threatened or violated by any one or any group? You don't have to answer Prep, I know you would!And you would be in the right for doing so.
Abdurratin is one, among several on this thread alone.
I disagree. It was Blacks in Africa who enslaved Blacks, and sold them to Whites to be shipped here. But that isn't relevant anyway. That is getting back to revenge, an eye for an eye, or the chicken or the egg debate. As long as someone is saying, you started it, and I want retribution, racism is going to persist. End of story.
Reverse discrimination is not defense.
Man, we may have to agree to disagree. I'm just trying to save y'all some heartache. You like history. Tell me what happens once the liberals in this country piss off the working, tax paying, second amendment defending white people. Once they decide they have had enough Affirmative Action, reverse discrimination, funding government handouts, and having rights threatened or infringed, it's too late to stop it or take it back. They are going to take their country back. Blacks may want to think about what is truly important to them, and who they want to side with.

We as the human species are denying others their equal rights.
All white people aren't bad, I'm not saying the are. All races do their share of wrong doing. And I don't hate any race of people. I love humanity and really wish race wasn't such an ignorant proposition to feud over. Buy here in 2013, it's still an issue, and it's not all black people's fault. It's a society problem.

Black or white, I see wrong doing as wrong doing. If a black person is doing wrong to any non black person, I fault that black individual for causing that problem. Trust me, black people are big critics within our race. We do correct one another more often than you guys understand. You guys have the wrong view of the black culture as a whole.

Just like the lady, white juror b57 in Zimmerman's trial case. She admitted she didn't understand the young black girl who spoke, true that girl have some issues, which I blame the lawyers for not preparing her, but nevertheless, if there were at least one black person on that jury, he/she would have served as a manifestation person for clarification of cultural difference. I believe if Zimmerman was black and Trayvon was white, and the situation was reverse, with 5 blacks on the jury, it would have needed at least one white person to represent the non black person who have been killed.

The problem is, you guys here ranting racially without understanding cultural difference plus "residual affects" that lingers alone with systematic venues disenfranchisement still in place hidden in "plain sight"! I can't explain enough to make you understand. Many of you don't care to understand either. You see what you want. If you're not extremely acclimated with the black culture, and more importantly, you have not experience being a black person, you can't speak what you don't know.

If you guys truly got to know black people without racial overtures, you'll realize how wrong your viewpoint is. Just viewing all these ignorant racist posts let me know race still have a long ways to go before ever close the great racial divide!

I don't post as a racist, I post racy, that's a huge difference which all posters can do without being racist. Racy to me here is stimulating every cultures into opening our eyes where they're closed with mine in tow!

I can't tell you how to post, nor can you tell me. I do ask comprehend better?
You need look no further than this thread to see examples of Blacks wanting revenge.

I do know and have spent time with Blacks. There are some, like Elbert Guillory, which I relate to, agree with, and get along with quite well.
The majority,however, feel entitled, choose to bastardize the English Language, abuse the government assistance programs, make excuses not to go to school or work, and fall for the Democrat bait and switch.
The shame of the whole thing is, the Blacks think the Democrats support them and fight for them, when in reality, Democrats keep Blacks dependent and stirred up over race relations.

<quoted text>As far as I know, we are. I don't know very many blacks on welfare. Almost all the ones I know are either studying for a degree, working a job or in a career or have their own business.
How many blacks do you know personally or are you just repeating the same old stale rhetoric that's prevalent from those who hold racist views toward blacks? Don't you know of any lazy unemployed whites or whites receiving welfare??

I don't recall mentioning reparations. In fact I don't recall very many blacks mentioning it. I think it's just something race baiters say!
You need to understand, people tend to spend time with people they approve of. Just because someone doesn't know personally or spend time with Blacks that sit on their behinds while collecting Welfare or Food Stamps or Government Housing, doesn't mean they do not see it on a daily basis.

You are correct that there are whites abusing the system as well. It doesn't make it ok for Blacks. I don't spend time with those whites either.

The sooner Blacks decide to stop worrying about what Whites are doing, and strive to take responsibility for and better themselves, the sooner equality prevails.

When people say racist things in the comments section, they start a whole firestorm that BECOMES A BIGGER DEAL THAN THE ARTICLE ITSELF.
Racism allows people a FLEETING MOMENT OF POPULARITY in a medium where millions of people are VIRTUALLY SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF THEIR LUNGS ALL DAY LONG. RACISM GETS YOU NOTICED
Anonymity The right explanation to any mystery is usually the simplest one and that's what this is, PEOPLE ARE RACIST ON THE INTERNET BECAUSE NO ONE KNOWS WHO THEY ARE.
ONLINE YOU CAN SAY WHATEVER YOU WANT IN A PUBLIC FORUM WITHOUT CONSEQUENCES. IN REAL LIFE YOU CAN'T.
What does any of that deflective reply have to do with my post? Do you have anything of substance to share? Or do you think deflecting scores debate points for you? Post a source, or link, or rational thought that refutes the facts I have posted.

That's what I thought.

You didn't reply to my post asking why you don't go back to Africa.
If you think it is so bad here, you should go deal with the Chinese who seem to be taking over Africa.
As a matter of fact, the basis of my own economic program is to invite the Chinese to invest in the black community in the USA. I already did that regarding to beautiful consequences. We received not less than $10 billion for Zimbabwe at a time when w3e greatly needed it. At the same time, the USA government sent not more than $73 million.( http://voices.washingtonpost.com/44/2009/06/1... ) The European Union probably gave a similar amount. But I am not sure how much considering that I do not follow European investments in Africa. I do know that historically, it has been inadequate. The Chines gave us 100 times more than the USA gave. We are not quite as dumb as Tonto, that Injun. We would look like dam fools begging for a handout from the white man when the Chinaman will give us 100 times more. Comprende? So, my plan is to beg the Chinese for a handout for Africans right here in the USA. The only problem would be bypassing po white trash and getting the money directly to Africans.

You are right, he could have done a lot of good. Instead, he did drugs, stole jewelry, abused the homeless, and spread his racism online. Oh, and his last contribution, attacking the wrong person.
Me Tonto. Go ask Kemo Sabe if it is okay to explain to me what it means to be a 17 year old boy fighting with his bare hands a 29 year old hired killer with a gun. They claim that Treyvon whipped that white boys asssss big time. Me tonto. Me cannot understand that.
