Why Did Black People Go Through Slavery and So Much Suffering?

I found out recently why so many Aftrican-Americans have had to struggle and still struggle so much in life. From slavery to racial prejudices, they have suffered it all. I never understood why until I stumbled upon Yahspeople.com .

I took a lot of time reading and finally I understand why they have endured such an extensive history of abuse and how they can change their lives for the better if only they were being taught who they truly are.

Visit Yahspeople.com , read through a few pages and tell me what you think. I haven't been able to disagree with anything that I've read so far. Just something historically to think about.

Okay well first things first Black people made slaves out of them selves like years before other races did. Their reason for it is well who doesn't want somebody or something do all the work and dont say I don't because all the technology you have replaces for other people to do hard and unwanted work.
Anyway Europian country's probably thought that if Africa had slaves why can't they. They probably also thought that they were superior to the blacks or thought that Black people's skin was lower than them and or represented dirt.
So they probably adopted the idea as well. As well did other country's like U.S.A.. Because of all the slavery that happened probably some hiw caused a low amount of developement to all African and carribean countries.
Now remember Blacks arn't the only race thats been used for slavery but they probably were used as slaves the most.

They still have to put up with things. Take Donald Trump and some of the things he's pulled on black people and minorities.

Kip Brown, an employee at a Trump casino, stated, "When Donald and Ivana came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people off the floor," he said. "It was the eighties, I was a teen-ager, but I remember it, they put us all in the back."

Trump and his real estate company was sued by the Justice Department for refusing to rent apartments to blacks. The Justice Department filed a civil rights case in New York that accused the Trump firm, led by its president Donald Trump, whose complexes contained 14,000 apartments, of violating the Fair Housing Act of 1968.

When a black woman asked to rent an apartment in a Brooklyn complex managed by Donald Trump's real estate company she was told that nothing was available. A short time later the same day, a white woman who made the same request was invited to choose between two available apartments.

The two would-be renters were actually undercover testers for a government-sanctioned investigation to determine whether Trump Management Inc. discriminated against minorities seeking housing at properties across Brooklyn and Queens.

Federal investigators also gathered evidence. Trump employees had secretly marked the applications of minorities with codes, such as 'No. 9' and 'C' for 'colored', according to government interview accounts filed in federal court.

In a book written by John R. O'Donnell, former president of Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino, O'Donnell said that Trump once said, in reference to a black accountant at Trump Plaza, "laziness is a trait in blacks."

On Trump's show "The Apprentice" there's only been one black winner. But Trump didn't want a black winning it so Trump asked the winner to co-share the win with another contestant, a white guy.

"I have black guys counting my money. I hate it. The only guys I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes all day."
-- USA Today

Trump kept calling a Hispanic/American federal judge "a Mexican". Trump stressed, "he's a Mexican. We're building a wall between here and Mexico."

The judge was born in East Chicago.

Just what does it take or how many generations of a person's family does it take before Trump thinks you're an American?

An important note is the judge was presiding over fraud lawsuits against Trump University. What did that have to do with someone being Hispanic/American? Or with the Mexican border? Nothing. But Trump was really bothered by the judge being Hispanic/American.

Christina, I would like to share with you my thoughts on your comment and threats to the guy who said "black people are stupid."
When I was your age, if someone insulted me, or did something that would make me want to fight them, adults would say "Oh, that person isn't worth it".
This used to get me really mad, because obviously they didn't understand that I couldn't just let someone punk me, without paying the consequences. Cause then I would look like a little bitch.
But you know what? In most cases, those adults were actually RIGHT. They weren't just "telling me" that. They actually understood that there are some people (like this guy) who just AREN'T WORTH IT. Meaning he, and is opinion, have NO VALUE. He is NOT WORTH you getting caught and spending time in jail.(and the record that stays with you).
What we have here is a guy who makes a statement about an enormous number of people, that he has never met, that he has grouped together because they have the SAME pigment as white people, just MORE of it. His claim is not backed up by any evidence, or even a credible source. What he says is SIMPLY NOT TRUE.
HE is the idiot. Everyone knows that there are many, MANY, MANY accomplished Black men and Women. Scientists, Architects, Doctors, Therapists, Teachers, Military, Parents, etc... Don't waste your precious time on this fool. You are young. Don't let people like him distract you from school. You will be graduating in a few months, right?
Keep your eyes on the prize, baby girl. School will take you to much further in life than a close minded racist ever could. Heidi
