It does not matter if the jig has money or not. People dislike kneegers on all levels, not due to the shitskin but due to the shitty way they live and act. Kneegers are just plain low lives and I suspect that affirmative action got them into the club to begin with. We must have diversity, so let's admit two or three jigs.

Three kneeger members quit?????????? Boy o boy, I bet that really made the white members feel badly, NOT.

Ignoring your typical ignorant racist ways, I agree with this point. I have never had the desire to go to a country club but if I did, I think the best thing for blacks to do would be to build their own. There is no reason to accept subpar treatment during your leisure time just to be around rich white folks. It's silly. I'm glad they quit the country club.

The protestors to the building of the Mosque in New York are a embarrassment to America and to every American! Shame on every American that does not shout that out loudly! Religious freedom is a American thing and as a American I am proud of that! It is an insult to America's moral standard that separate Americans from the barbaric behavior other country have shown! Many times as in this time white Americans are at the front line of this barbaric and discriminatory behavior! In American history whites have to be told over and over that GOD create every people equally.... GOD! To single out a billion Muslim because (4) crazy Muslim extremist that decide to fly planes into two building in America in New York. Is a sick and bias racist stupid way of thinking! Maybe if someone in the white race said just that in the beginning of enslavement of black people in America. That part of America's evil history would not had happen! If only white people had leadership in their race or true men with the guts to stand up for the rights of others. And against white racism and pure misguided hatred! Maybe we as a people could terminate cancer heart disease and AIDS! Maybe the energy that is spend on hatred and dividing the country white people could be the leaders of that cause! MAYBE! But to date no one speaks directly to white Americans about their teaching of hatred in America and their many short coming! I wrote about how during the 2008 campaign for President. Senator Obama spoke to a group of black people about their short coming whether they wanted to hear it or not. Whether it applied to them or NOT! Senator Mc Cain who was also running for President and spoke in front of mostly white audience said NOTHING to white people about their short coming! That has been the practice in this country for too long! White are given a past be it by America's government or in our justice system. White murderer are treated like celebrity many wrote books until their was a law against it! Then other whites wrote books about them! White criminal are made into celebrity and white gang are feature on TV shows! TV and movie have made the white person like GODS and made out the be the better race! I understand the majority I understand white out number most Americans TODAY! But white should also understand with that Majority static comes with responsibility!

Tyrone YOUR people ALSO owned slaves in America!!!! Want to know WHY you weren't Taught this?? Because the WHITE Dem's would loose control of Chumping Blacks for Votes. Why do you think the "White Dem's" Cater for AIR time to keep perpetuating this Half History in the U.S. and control there Votes!!

Blacks in Africa are STILL owning and Practicing Slavery!!!

The fact is large numbers of free Negroes owned black slaves; in fact, in numbers disproportionate to their representation in society at large. In 1860 only a small minority of whites owned slaves. According to the U.S. census report for that last year before the Civil War, there were nearly 27 million whites in the country. Some eight million of them lived in the slaveholding states.

The census also determined that there were fewer than 385,000 individuals who owned slaves (1). Even if all slaveholders had been white, that would amount to only 1.4 percent of whites in the country (or 4.8 percent of southern whites owning one or more slaves).

These include individuals such as Justus Angel and Mistress L. Horry, of Colleton District, South Carolina, who each owned 84 slaves in 1830. In fact, in 1830 a fourth of the free Negro slave masters in South Carolina owned 10 or more slaves; eight owning 30 or more (2).

According to federal census reports, there were nearly 4.5 million Negroes in the United States, with fewer than four million of them living in the southern slaveholding states. Of the blacks residing in the South, 261,988 were not slaves. Of this number, 10,689 lived in New Orleans. The country's leading African American historian, Duke University professor John Hope Franklin, records that in New Orleans over 3,000 free Negroes owned slaves, or 28 percent of the free Negroes in that city.

To return to the census figures quoted above, this 28 percent is certainly impressive when compared to less than 1.4 percent of all American whites and less than 4.8 percent of southern whites. The statistics show that, when free, blacks disproportionately became slave masters..

In 1860 there were at least six Negroes in Louisiana who owned 65 or more slaves The largest number, 152 slaves, were owned by the widow C. Richards and her son P.C. Richards, who owned a large sugar cane plantation. Another Negro slave magnate in Louisiana, with over 100 slaves, was Antoine Dubuclet, a sugar planter whose estate was valued at (in 1860 dollars)$264,000 (3). That year, the mean wealth of southern white men was $3,978 (4)..

In time the black Ellison family joined the predominantly white Episcopalian church. On August 6, 1824 he was allowed to put a family bench on the first floor, among those of the wealthy white families. Other blacks, free and slave, and poor whites sat in the balcony. Another wealthy Negro family would later join the first floor worshippers.

Between 1822 and the mid-1840s, Ellison gradually built a small empire, acquiring slaves in increasing numbers. He became one of South Carolina's major cotton gin manufacturers, selling his machines as far away as Mississippi. From February 1817 until the War Between the States commenced, his business advertisements appeared regularly in newspapers across the state. These included the Camden Gazette, the Sumter Southern Whig and the Black River Watchman.

Ellison was so successful, due to his utilization of cheap slave labor, that many white competitors went out of business. Such situations discredit impressions that whites dealt only with other whites. Where money was involved, it was apparent that neither Ellison's race or former status were considerations.

You can be sure that smaller groups of whites are treated the same way but only the blacks feel they should be treated as Ancient Egyptian kings-n-shit.

They were angry that the race card did not also act as an express pass.

I am sure they are preparing their lawsuit as I type this.

Cut in line?!

HA!

How many times has a neeeegro cut in line?

This is one of the things neeeegos are all about.

Cutting in line, talking loud in public, throwing trash anywhere they want and generally having an attitude that rules and manners do not apply to them or other people when they are involved.

This is a load of crap…

Far too many people are far too afraid of offending a colored person that they end up allowing the afro American to do as they please then when they don’t get their way they claim racism.

Your Not getting is. First off Im and independent.

Todays Blacks wanted "reparations" for slavery. The Federal Government mandated that all the U.S.Insurances companies that had policy records dating back to slavery made Public.

Well that Backfired. Thats when extensive research was done on the U.S. Census, court records etc. Thats when all the records were put together to SHOW how many Blacks owned slaves as far back as 1636 with a very expensive documented case of Black slave owner ship,

Anthony Johnson (?- 1670) was one of the Orginial 20 blacks that stepped into the Virginia Colony. He arrived in Virginia in 1621 aboard the James. At this time he was known in the records as "Antonio, a Negro" The following year (1622) "Mary a Negro" arrived aboard the ship Margaret and John. They became husband and wife and lived together for over forty years. Around 1635 Anthony got his freedom for his son and wife. Right after that He Bought 5 Slaves and was given 250 free Acers through the "Headrights" act.

"The headright system was used in Jamestown, Virginia, starting in 1617 as an attempt to solve labor shortages due to the advent of the tobacco economy, which required large plots of land with many workers. It was also a way to attract immigrants. Virginian colonists were each given two headrights of 50 acres (200,000 m²); immigrant colonists who paid for their passage were given one headright, and individuals would receive one headright each time they paid for the passage of another individual. This last mechanism increased the division between the wealthy land-owners and the working poor. The headright system was only for males."

One of Anthonys owned slaves (John Casor) ran away. He was found working for a White slave master and the case ended up in Virgina Court.

Eight March Anno 1654.4 John Casor was not, however, permitted to enjoy long his freedom. Johnson decided to petition the county court to determine whether John Casor was a slave for life or a servant “for seven years of indenture.” The court record of the suit is as follows:

(" Whereas complaint was this daye made to ye court by ye humble peticion of Anth. Johnson Negro ag[ains]t Mr. Robert Parker that hee detayneth one John Casor a Negro the plaintiffs Serv[an]t under pretense yt the sd Jno. Casor is a freeman the court seriously considering & maturely weighing ye premises doe fynd that ye sd Mr. Robert Parker most unrightly keepeth ye sd Negro John Casor from his r[igh]t mayster Anth. Johnson as it appeareth by ye Deposition of Capt. Samll Gold smith & many probable circumstances. be it therefore ye Judgement of ye court & ordered that ye sd Jno. Casor negro, shall forthwith bee turned into ye service of his sd master Anthony Johnson and that the sd Mr. Robert Parker make payment of all charges in the suite and execution. seriously consideringe and maturely weighing the premisses, doe fynde that the saide Mr. Robert Parker most unjustly keepeth the said Negro from Anthony Johnson his master…

It is therefore the Judgement of the Court and ordered That the said John Castor Negro forthwith returne unto the service of the said master Anthony Johnson, And that Mr. Robert Parker make payment of all charges in the suit.

n thus sustaining the claim of Anth. Johnson to the perpetual service of John Casor the court gave judicial sanction to the right of Negroes to own slaves of their own race. Indeed no earlier record, to our knowledge, has been found of judicial support given to slavery in Virginia

Anthony was recognized in Virginia court documents when he pled for tax relief after a fire destroyed much of his plantation

Historcally the bottom line here is the FIRST Doucmented Indentured servent/Slave for life was slave John Casor to Black slave master "Antonio" Anthony Johnson , ordered by the Virgina Court.

Tyrone if you know so much about God then you should know that Satan is responsable for all the evil in the world not white people. Also your argument does not explain black on black violence in America AND Africa. Why do most black men refuse to raise their children even the ones that are not in jail. Are white people to blame for the way muslims treat other muslims and their women? You seem to be a educated man like those men that quit the country club. However by your comment yourself to a racist also. There was probably a simple explanation as to why the white group were allowed to tee off first but it seems like blacks today take every little slight to be racism. If a black group was permitted to go ahead of my friends and myself I'm sure we wouldn't have thought nothing of it. Why is that? God bless you Sir and I hope the next world you live in is more to your liking.

Every race should be treated equally. Come on, people, its 2010. I can't believe there's still people that are pathetic enough to look down on someone because they're a certain race. I am white, but I totally disagree with things like the KKK. it just makes caucasians as a whole look like shit, and I'm sorry that people like that are so ignorant.

however I don't agree with things like black people using the slavery history as an excuse or just stressing over it all the time. The thing is; slavery doesn't exist today, and segregation is no longer legal. It's a done and over thing.
