OK, here's my take - Why do some people start forums like "Why whites hate blacks" and "Why blacks hate whites?" Can't we see that the only way to bury racism is to start looking within and try to determine what the fear is that kindles racism. We are all of the same mold to a degree. We all bleed the same. Can't we get away from segregation amoungst ourselves? Here's my idea, if you were born in America, then you are American. Let's get rid of the hyphenated names such as Asian American, African American, Mexican American and so on. If you weren't born here but migrated, then fine but if you were born in the U.S - YOU ARE AN AMERICAN! By continuing to differentiate, it only exacerbates the problem.

Further, if you've never been a slave, then let's try to get beyond hanging on to the anger. Personally, No one in my lifetime or my parent's lifetime has ever owned a slave. It's not fair to hold an entire generation accountable for something that happened before we were born. We can't go back and undo what our ignorant ancestors did in the past. I can understand residual anger but actively keeping it alive is not going to do anyone any good.

Now I must admit, I have fallen prey to commenting on the boards I just mentioned but in the bigger picture, we all need to get along. Can't we at least try? I would hope that anyone posting a response to this will stay on track and we can have a decent legitimate discussion and not start calling names. If we all just try, we can accomplish it I'm sure.

I agree with everything you say. But their are more minority hate blogs on this site than anything else.
I must also admit, i have also became a victim of posting on blogs on this website, trying to convince people that there is nothing different different between whites and blacks. But their are some people who just don't want to hear or even think about equality. Why? I truly don't know, but it needs to stop before things become violent.
We are all humans, so why don't we treat each like one?

I never thought that multi-culturalism was a good idea to begin with. In fact, it has never worked in any society. America has become nothing but a country of many different racial and ethnic factions who squabble and look out for their own self-interests, and I wouldn't be surprised if America splinters because of it. Anyway, we all should just get along, of course, but most people don't have the insight and wisdom that you do, so it will never happen.

Those of you that believe in God. I look at humanity today on earth as a testing ground of sorts. To see if we humans can get along with each other. If you can't get along here on earth in this life, how are you gonna get along in heaven or the "afterlife?" What, you think only one race will be in heaven? If the races cannot get along down here, they surely probably won't get along "p there" so now is the time to do some culling. Those that will not or are unwilling to follow the golden rule or treat their neighbors ( regardless of color or culture) as they would like to be treated seems to me are unworthy and undeserving of heaven. So best to thin them and cull them out right here on planet earth. Then all those of us that do wish to get along in peace and harmony can go on to be with the Lord God in His paradise.

I agree with Think about It!! We should deport all the non-whites! Native Americans too, back over the land bridge to siberia!! Kennewick man was white so we were here first and we get America! Besides, we built it and its not like we can pick it up and bring it to Europe!!

I wish it was true!! You can think "OOO racists are bad!" from over there in white mans land but the non-whites are moving in I'm sure you've noticed. What you may not have noticed is that they are destroying our country. Blacks are not like us. They want to rape and kill us as "payback" for slavery and will do so at any opportunity. If you don't believe me then take a bus to Detroit and go outside the bus stop and walk around!! Bring your gun!! Better yet, don't go and look for pictures of the ruins of Detroit on the internet. The fall of this once great city is well documented and the rest of our country is soon to follow. This is what happens when the non-whites become the majority in a formerly white community!

THe same thing could be applied to any race, even whites. And it's the white people in power that is keeping the current state of economy in the crisis it is in now. SO before you go rush and find a way to disrespect blacks and other minorites, look around for things that whites are messing up.

Please specify how blacks would get our country out of the economic crisis. You defend the blacks because you feel sorry that your ancestors enslaved them. YOU DID NOT ENSLAVE ANYONE! You should really talk to blacks and find out how they feel about us and what they would do if they had a chance instead of mindlessly defending them.

I think your mindless one here. I know how a black person thinks because ...
I
AM
BLACK.
Try not to assume everyone is white. And please specify how a white person could get the economy out of it's current or going to be recession.

OK, maybe you don't want to rape and kill us but a lot of blacks do and I think whites should fight back against them. Its too bad that the blacks were brought here as slaves but I don't feel guilty enough to sit back and watch my people get killed off.

white people were the race that ENDED slavery .
france ,brittin ,the united states ... slavery was a concept invented on the african continant over 20,000 years ago....long before the egyptians...long before any white came to trade for slaves....long before the trans atlantic slave trade wich took the african concept of OWNING another human being and made a bussiness out of it...based a society on it !
i don't feel sorry for FREEING the slaves...but i'm starting to REGRET it !

Alot of blacks do not want to kill whites. Alot of black don't even think about whites--really black people hate you but not because of slavery--it's because you group people. Jerome from the hood doesn't represent every black person. Yes white people ended slavery but it wouldn't have to be ended if as usual white people weren't so hungry for control of every country (or rather I'll use their euphemism--imperialism)

Where are you getting your facts from, the back of a cereal box. Before you pull shit out of your ass, do some research. And guess what, you didn't free the slaves, you weren't born in that time period. And just because you regret freeing them, doesn't mean things will change.

He was probably tring to say, why would you be racist towards an entire race of people? Is it because your having bad experiences with bad parts of the black community, or are you just racist for no good reason.

You mentioned that whites ended slavery, but they failed to give blacks equal rights. And blacks had to fight to get them, yet it seems that we still don't have them 100%.

So what exactly is your problem with the black race.

my biggest PROBlem is yagovs like ...you !nothing in my statement says im racist ,just says im starting to regret a decission made by my countries forfathers 1
yet racist afrowhinebabies like yourself just like to call ALL white people or people that won't listen to your "oh i'm black feel sorry for me because i was NEVER a slave and i'm to lazy to go out and work for what i want like so many OTHER black people that have succeaded before me i would rather sit here and bitch about how unfair life is for me because i CHOOSE to make it unfair...for me"
grow up ,get a job (a real one robbing quick trips doesn't count)and MAKE alife for yourself like any other WHITE man has to do.
all you crybabies think that the whole world opens up to you when your white that we don't have to work to get what we got well FAAAAA-Q your a whiny snivily drain on society and your asses should have been shipped back to africa when slavery was ABOLISHED by the WHITE man then you could be getting raped or killed as we speak and your life would be so much better ...WAKE UP your ancestors went through hell being sold by there own people ,forced into slavery in a far away land .and because of what THEY (not you) had to endure you get to reap the benefits of living in a free country with food,clean water,education,PCs!!!,FREEDOM of speach,need i go on?????
so quit your pouting and be something other than a burdon on YOUR country (notice i said YOUR because thats what the u.s. is ,unlike the HOMELAND you claim that won't claim you ,that sold you in the first place.
there were MORE white slaves than black brought into the u.s. and they were still being brought in AFTER blacks were FREED !german,irish,brittish english ALL have a right to cry slavery yet we don't ...know why???? were not stupid thats why !we know what we got in this country!
we DON'T live for the day this country falls ...we don't try to ADD to her fall
she is your country to maybe if your people started to act like it rather than bitch about how bad it is the rest of us would acept you as AMERICANS because most of us find it an insult that you would honor a country that sold you (african american)before the country that freed you!
