Actually, you seem to be the ignorant and judgmental person in this thread. You seem to be an expert on facts so how about you dig up some of those facts that prove there is a god and that the bible is his words? Come on, we're waiting...
Not about being an expert its about reality, call me judgemental all you want, but I notice you say nothing about the stuff being said about African americans, whats funny is the majority of these posts come from hillbillies such as yourself. If you want to start quoting scripture, we can do that. Prove there is a GOD? Youre being alive and your waking up everyday and the sun rising everday should be proof enough, but if you want to get into the whole biblical thing we can do that, youre just another pissed off hillbilly who has nothing to do but hang out with likeminded fools and spout racism and ignorance, im sure youre still upset Obama one, HAHAHAHAHA! Every morning I wake up is another day God has blessed me, cant help it if you don't see that same beauty. EVIL AND HATE SUCK. I don't hate any of you hilljacks, I actually feel sorry for you.

I agree that is def not a lie, but I also know that once that did happen, we were treated as if we were nothing, like we were trash.

Slavery, raped by the Master of the house, beaten, hung, segregation, not being treated as human beings, but rather animals, treated as if black men were savages and rapers of white women( check out The Birth of a Nation, very interesting how black men were portrayed as these savages who were lusting and pawing at these virtuous white women....enter the KKK to save these virtuous white women from these black savages) Presidents(Woodrow Wilson literally endorsing this type of film with the words :SAD BUT TRUE:) Politicians being sponsored by the KKK back during that time....so yes, we were sold to the white man by our own, that was horrible and I cant take away from that because that's very true, but what happened to us when we got here was so horrible) Being beaten, sprayed with powerful water hoses, blowing up our places of worship, killing children...please understand I KNOW the Africans set off this chain of events, so I don't excuse them for that, but I also don't believe that anyone should excuse the hatred that was and apparently is still rampant against African Americans.

If you don't like black people, I think you should find someplace in the world where all of the like minded racist could go AND LIVE and not participate in society as we know it because the reality is, we aren't going anywhere. Its a shame because it shouldn't have to be that way.

Underperformance? Blackmail to achieve something? Ok lets see Dr. Charles Richard Drew invented the blood bank,Marie Brown invented a video home surveillance system, George Carver Washington a chemist who invented 300 hundred uses for peanuts hundreds more for for soybeans pecans sweet potatoes, more than ANYONE else in history, Benjamin S Carson was a pioneer in surgical technology, Emmett W Chappelle who was a biochemist, photobiologist, astrochemist and black inventor, John Christian invented and patented new lubricants used in high flying aircrafts and Nasa space missions, Donald Cotton invented propellants for nuclear reactors, those are just a FEW of African Americans who had an impact on this country, now I ask you were they underperformers, did they use blackmail to achieve things? Youre statement only proves my point, there are a lot of misinformed people on here, I didn't even get inot ALL of the AFRICAN AMERICANS that have contributed to this great country of ours. What I hear you saying with that statement is that perhaps youre blaming your own failures on blacks when failure is an individual choice. But I want to thank you for continuing to prove my point!

You all are attacking this person for her religious views and her observation on the threads that everyone in Frankfort seems to have nasty things to say not about just black people, but about one another, about the President of The Untied States, The First Lady. I agree with her you guys are a bunch of lowlife hillbillys with nothing better to do. Im a white person and I am ashamed at just how ignorant you guys have been attacking her for her views. Whats funny is im sure some of you idiots have been with black women or men but you get on this thread saying dumbshit. @ So very Sad, keep your head up, know that youre talking to a town filled with straight white trash.

It's true that crime is bad in the black community...but you didn't even address all the rape and genocide I asked you about. This shows that you are self-absorbed. You are not concerned as long as other people are the victims. Also, you are just making up percentages and portraying them as the truth.

You do realize white people have been held as slaves throughout history for MANY more years than the African races? That has NO bearing on today's world. Even if my daddy was a slave, so what. I'm not.

I am sorry that your people 2-3 generations BEHIND you were treated badly by people 2-3 generations BEHIND ME. But at what point is enough enough?

"THOSE WHO CANNOT MOVE BEYOND THE PAST ARE DESTINED TO BE HELD CAPTIVE BY IT." -Me!

Racism is alive today because the minorities ALLOW it to be here. Think about that on a deeper level before you blast me. It isn't OK for me to call a black person a n*****, as it is racist.(I agree) But it IS ok for blacks to receive special treatment. You have affirmative action. EEO is always up in peoples business checking every little number to make sure companies are hiring blacks. You have organizations and companies that are permitted to be all black, however the white man would be drug through the legal system for the very same thing.

The black man will ONLY be truly free once he allows his past to go and move on. The black man will only be truly free when he is willing to pull himself up by the boot straps and not allow special treatment or consideration because of the color of his skin.(affirmative action as an example) Racism is alive because we allow the racism card to be played way too often. Let me tell you, I have no one because of their race, nationality etc. I hate them because they are crappy human beings.

Hell, if you want to hate white for being white, hate on people with the last names Williams, Johnson, Smith, Jones or Brown.(Top 5 most commons black as names) If you know history, you will understand that statement. My last name is over 900 and I am also 1/8th Apache.*my* people had no part in this.:-) My ancestors you will very rarely ever see. We all know what happened to the American Indian.

<quoted text> I respectfully disagree. As I said to the Satanist, African Americans are born having to struggle and fight their way to be and do something in their life. Yes, there are some black people who are their own worst enemy, but we have an inner strength that allows us to overcome things that a lot of whites could not handle if they were put in the same situation. What I find a lot of is fakeness, a strong sense of self entitlement, and a lot of unfounded statements. In my family we ALL have college degrees, we ALL OWN our homes, some of us even have our Masters Degrees, I have cousins that travel the world, they are black and they aren't out killing people, they are productive individuals in society, and THAT is what counts, not their color.
I'm proud of your endeavors . Glad ya own a home and got degree's. But I do strongly think your wrong what whites can handle , and can't .

My guess is the reason Mr Satanist didn't address those issues is because he really has no clue. Those statistics are absolutely made up, I would venture to say those were statistics that he grew up believing. So Very Sad.

here we go with this special treatment argument, so very untrue, and if you know HISTORY you would understand the reason that those programs were initially implemented, because blacks, non whites were in fact being discriminated against in the hiring process as well as being passed over for jobs where their qualifications EXCEEDED that of their white counterpart. With that being said, I do not believe anyone should get preferential treatment based on the color of their skin but rather their merits. As I stated before there is no pure race, I have Indian in my family, I also have German, and I also have white, nevertheless I am still an African American. Its unfair to say that blacks get special treatment when that simply isn't true. I just hate people don't really understand that. I had to bust my a-- in college, I worked hard for my grades and what I have accomplished in my life, I DID THAT, no one gave me a dime nor assistance to get the job I have, I got my jobs based on my own merits and that is the key word MY merits.:)

<quoted text> wrong...crimes are committed almost equally between all races...the statistics show that non whites are convicted for those crimes at about a 3/1 ratio. For the simple minded = if you are non white and commit the same crime as a white person, you have 3x the chance of being convicted of said crime. I am a sociology major so YES I do know what I'm talking about. Its obvious why you troll this site with your propaganda. In the real word you would be the equivalent of debating a 2nd grader.

Thanks for the kudos for my endeavors(I think, lollol) I don't think all whites have these issues, just the misguided and misinformed ones. Im not sure that you can actually say what you could handle unless you've experienced racism at its worst, have you? Just asking. Also I appreciate your maturity in your response.

Do you think Affirmative action does more good in todays world than how it "used to be?"

Are we holding on to a part of history and only reminding ourselves of the old days and not trying to move past it?

How does it make you feel as an African American to know that if you are the only black man in the running for a position, that you may get it simply because AA says I have to hire you?

Do you think AA creates more disdain for the minority communities than might be there otherwise?

That is "special treatment" if you read it in context of my ramblings. As 1/8 American Indian, I could get preferred hiring by claiming my minority. I could say I was discriminated against. But I truly want my own merit to reward me. Therefore I claim white. A white male under 40 is the last person to get a job among equally qualified contenders.

Try not to read into or assume that which I do not say. Otherwise you might think I am a racist bigot. Which I am not.

I know this wasn't directed to me, but I want to also comments.

I don't know if I have experienced racism at it's worst. However, I lived in ATL several years. Countless times I have been in convenient stores late at night, where I was the only white guy there. Many times uneventful. But enough times to notice, I have been treated much differently and even blatently rude, even though I always smile and say thank you etc. It's a southern thing.

One customer one time (black) said "no need to be scared white boy, nothing but love here." It it wasn't a warm "welcome to our black panther meeting" tone either. I looked (up) directly in his eyes and said "I am not the least bit scared of you or anyone in here. The worst you can do is kill me and I am not afraid to die."

I have participated in several Habitat for Humanity projects as well. I have had blacks threaten me and attempt to run me out of neighborhoods while I am contributing to their black community on my own time and own free will. I have had guns flashed at me, bottles thrown at me and called everything in the world.

I often find if you proceed on and show respect, people back down. Now granted, I do not hold this against the black community as a whole. Just like whites, you all have your trash that is embarrassing to you as well. Reminds me of a Chris Rock skit: "Everything white people hate about n*****s, black people hate more."

So true. There is trash in every race. I let people make my decision for me. All people are just that, people. Until you prove otherwise, I give you a chance. I have friends of all races. Close friends. Friends that I would drop what I am doing and in a moments notice drive across the country to help. Not just the "token black guy" who gets to hang out that some whites use as a claim to "I have a black friend." When in most cases, that isn't remotely true. I am sure you understand.

color is used as an excuse for underperformance and it is used to blackmail others to get what they want

the examples you listed, they made something of themselves but they also didn't rub in color all the way. they didnt sit and say I didn't get this because I'm black, or you should treat me better because i'm black.

but hey, so very sad, it is indeed very sad because you are the biggest racist on here. good luck with that. until you get that giant chip off your shoulder you'll never succeed. until you get that giant chip off your shoulder you'll always be a racist. until you get that giant chip off your shoulder you'll always be part of the problem.

i don't expect you to get that. you'd have to be able to look beyond color and religion to get that. you are unable to do so. you live as a racist and unfortunately you'll also die as a racist. and you'll always be in denial about it. you'll continue to point your finger at others.

It seems some people bring up the KKK. Now, I am not part of it nor do I agree with the beliefs in the mid and early 1900s but the KKK today is not like the KKK back in those times. There ideology does not deal with slavery, instead it has turned more purely to white pride and not trying to dominate another race. African Americans for example.

I think many people blow up the issue of racism because if you look in society today blacks are given the same oppertunities as other races, maybe more in some cases. Racism in todays society does not stop a young African American from following his/her dream, example Obama. If racism was so bad then how does a black man become president?

I do not have a problem with black, i have many as friends but I do not like the blacks that act like their in gangs or want to be in gangs. I respect blacks that make something of themselves and stay out of trouble.

Another funny thing i dont understand is why so many black are followers of Obama. If you look at facts, he hasnt done a single thing for them. Their unemployment are at record highs. The democratic party lies to them, also the founding of the KKK were in fact southern democrats themselves. This has always baffled me.

I don't see how you can deny that white people commit terrible acts all the time. It's all about environment and personal responsibility. I'm a white male and attended KSU, I was never attacked. In fact, many of the black students and faculty went out of their way to be helpful. I assume that you are white, do you feel responsible for the Newtown shooting? How about the Holocaust? Jeffery Dahmer, J.W.Gacy, Ted Bundy, Charles Manson, Albert Fish?... all white (your people). How do you feel about the way whites treated the indians? How do you feel about the institution of slavery? What about all the little black girls that were raped by their owners?
