If only more people listened to this.
Thanks.

Also, I wanted to mention something else (regarding race this time):

To the black nationalists/bigots:

Did you know that blacks enslaved whites (muslims-christians) in the 1500s through to the late 1700s?

And also, even during African slavery, there were many babies born from white slave owners, and you could even be descended from them.

Not only that, but there were black slave traders too, and you could even have come from there.

The problem with black nationalists/bigots is that they don't look at the bigger picture, and only hear what they want to hear. They are told the same by friends and families, so they never stop bitching.. the cycle goes on.. and never stops.

So.. reality check you racists: forget dwelling on issues that don't concern you. Our forefathers (black and white) have both been slaves and been enslaved. Forget that. That was their issue. Not ours.

Focus on the here & now.

We have a Violence Against Women Act. Not a 'black' or a 'white' act. A 'women' act.
This is how men are discriminated against.

That's the real issue.

Look at health care for men and women too, you will be surprised at what you find. Look at family court. Look at alimony. Look at child support. Look at bias against fathers.

Wake up and grow up. Peace.

Today blacks strike fear in whites. Only 75 years ago it was the opposite. The average white man has become soft and afraid.

Really???
FACT #1: The White race invented the printing press,the harnessing of electricity,
flight, rocketry, astronomy, the telescope, space travel, firearms, the transistor,
radio, television, the telephone, the lightbulb, photography, motion pictures, the
phonograph, the electric battery, the automobile, the steam engine, railroad
transportation, the microscope, computers, and millions of other technological
miracles. It has discovered countless medical advances,scientific progress, etc.
FACT #2: Throughout 6,000 years of recorded history, the Black African Negro has
invented nothing. Not a written language, weaved cloth, a calendar, a plow, a road,
a bridge, a railway, a ship, a system of measurement, or even the wheel.
(Note: This is in reference to the pure-blooded Negro.) He is not known to have ever
cultivated a single crop or domesticated a single animal for his own use
(although many powerful and docile beasts abounded around him.) His only known means
of transporting goods was on the top of his hard burry head. For shelter he never
progressed beyond the common mud hut, the construction of which a beaver or muskrat
is capable.
Hate to burst your bubble *not* but here are the true facts.
You wouldn't be able to drive a car if it wasn't for Richard spikes a BLACK MAN who invented the gearshift. the pencil sharpener a BLACK MAN. the type writer machine A BLACK MAN. lawn mower and lawn sprinkler THE BLACK MAN. air conditioner THE BLACK MAN. the refrigerator THE BLACK MAN. the elevator THE BLACK MAN. blood banks THE BLACK MAN. most of the music genres.blues,rock,r&b,jazz ,reggae,rap, techno BLACK PEOPLE. Automatic Lubrication System for railroads and heavy machinery, A BLACK MAN. Gas Mask a BLACK MAN. First Open Heart Surgery a BLACK MAN. heart transfusions A BLACK MAN. Railway Air Brakes a BLACK MAN. telescope A BLACK MAN. Steam table (from how a steam train began) you guessed it! A BLACK MAN. dial operating device, A BLACK MAN. Coating aids for hydrophilic colloid layers of photographic elements, A BLACK MAN...i could go on and on.

Although there was some enslaving of whites by blacks it was rare. For one thing, whites cannot labor as hard as blacks in sun, heat, or humidity. Blacks are physically more robust than whites. Which is why West Africans were so highly prized as slaves. Even today, Haitian women can out work almost all Western white males in a sugar cain field.

Millions of whites have been slaves to black masters.

White slavery was extensive in North Africa and extended down into West Africa.

Egypt had been enslaving circassians since and especially after Dynastic times.

Incase anyone doesn't know blacks are found both in and South of the Sahara.

Take a LOOK of most of the pictures of North Africans with white slaves before talking **** about Arabs.

Lol, you do realize that in modern times whites are more discriminated against then whites right? A black man has gone into a bar and killed only the whites there, that doesnt even go in the local news, a white man says the n word and its all over national news stations. oh and your "whites are inferior" thing? have you ever heard of Sickle Cell disease?

"COLUMBUS, Ohio – A new study suggests that a million or more European Christians were enslaved by Muslims in North Africa between 1530 and 1780 – a far greater number than had ever been estimated before.
Robert Davis
In a new book, Robert Davis, professor of history at Ohio State University, developed a unique methodology to calculate the number of white Christians who were enslaved along Africa’s Barbary Coast, arriving at much higher slave population estimates than any previous studies had found.
Most other accounts of slavery along the Barbary coast didn’t try to estimate the number of slaves, or only looked at the number of slaves in particular cities, Davis said. Most previously estimated slave counts have thus tended to be in the thousands, or at most in the tens of thousands. Davis, by contrast, has calculated that between 1 million and 1.25 million European Christians were captured and forced to work in North Africa from the 16th to 18th centuries."
"The origins of African slavery in the New World cannot be understood without some knowledge of the millennium of warfare between Christians and Muslims that took place in the Mediterranean and Atlantic and the piracy and kidnapping that went along with it.[1] In 1627 pirates from the Barbary Coast of North Africa raided distant Iceland and enslaved nearly four hundred astonished residents. In 1617 Muslim pirates, having long enslaved Christians along the coasts of Spain, France, Italy, and even Ireland, captured 1,200 men and women in Portuguese Madeira. Down to the 1640s, there were many more English slaves in Muslim North Africa than
Dude, lets get the facts straight. People of the Barbary states are not Blacks but Arab looking Caucasoids, some are even blond and they enslaved many Blacks from the south as well. Typical of you people to always muddle the facts in your favor. SMH

I love all races , but I particularly like white people because they mix well with (MOORS)black people. That is the best mixture I have ever seen. I do believe that (Moors) what we know as black people are the suprior race because when people of the black race have children with other races, the children are considered to be black. Perfect example, If I did not know that Halle Berry's daughter dad is white, I would have just thought that she is black because she Halle considers herself to be black and her daughter is darker than I am. But I might add she is beautiful like her parents.
