Why is it that when a black person promotes their race they are considered a civil rights activist. But when a white person tries to do the same, they are considered a racist? Very F'd up country and the rules are not the same.

As a white person saying this, if white people didn't abuse their position as white and abuse the black citizens during slavery then they would not have to "promote" their race. If equality always existed, we would not be having this conversation. Racism ends with you. You have a choice to either perpetuate it or just realize there will be differences because of left over hurt feelings and move on. You don't have to participate in the negative. You can rise above it, be empathetic, be open to people's point of view. Expect nothing in return. And love people. Yes people say and do things thats not always nice. So what? Don't get mad. Get awesome instead.:)

So what about the "blacks" that not only sold slaves but also owned slaves. And I believe that a white man was the one that freed salves. So you tell me when does it end. Why do I have to continue to pay for something that I had nothing to do with. Blacks will always use slavery against whites. When will it end and when will you rise above?

Other than slavery, the Irish and other immigrants had it just as bad. I don't disagree, just sayin.

Ugh. People since the dawn of man have treated eachother poorly. All races are guilty. All races have paid some kind of price. Either monetarily or by public perception. Someone is always going to say "well this race does this and this race does that!" Whoopty do. Cry about it. All you can do is be the better person and not feed into all that. I could care less. It's time to get over ourselves. Lets get happy
